The passing of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani - 7 May 2014


Inna lillah wa inna ilaihi raji'un
Rajab the month of Allah welcomes back an extraordinary man of Allah - the honorable Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani - to a lofty abode of return befitting his stature. Only Allah knows the rewards for a man of zikrullah, a man of sacred and secret knowledge, a man of gnosis, a man of piety, a man of humility, a master of hearts - the leader of the Naqshbandi Haqqani Sufi Order.

We cannot begin to imagine how small and deficient we are in relation to this exemplary personality.

We cannot fathom the scenario of the unseen realm with the ruhul quddus (holy spirits) who must be rejoicing in the homecoming of a member of the fraternity.

We are a nobody to eulogize somebody like him. We cannot offer anything better, save the words of Allah - the ummul kitab Al Fatihah.
