The Position of the Tariqat i-Khwajagan By Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim with Mawlana 'Abd Allah Daghestani

“There are forty one Tariqat’s, forty springing from the heart of Imam Ali, and one, the Naqshbandiyya Order, coming from Abu Bakr As Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with them. The Prophet had 124,000 Companions. Who was the grand companion? It was Abu Bakr. The Prophet said, “The whole of what Allah entrusted to me on the Night Journey, I put in the heart of Abu Bakr”. This is well known among real Tariqat Shaykhs. They respect the Naqshbandi Order as the first one. Real Shaykhs, not those giving titles to themselves. All the great Shaykhs, Jilani, Rumi, Darqawi, Rifa’i, they were knowing the real station of the (Khwajagan) Naqshbandi Order. Now, if a person is in one of these Tariqats, they may take Tariqat Naqshbandiyya and remain free to follow those exercises or the Naqshbandiyya exercises…The chain of Shaykhs ends in one. Our GrandShaykh is the last link in the Golden Chain and he is holding that position…

For Naqshbandi Shaykhs, we are waiting for them to renew their baiah with us or else they are only putting titles on themselves. Al Mahdi (AS) and his seven grand wazirs, forty Khalifas, ninety-nine counting those forty who are next to the wazirs and three hundred and thirteen Grand Murshids are all in the Naqshbandi Tariqat.

In this time, there is no power for other Tariqats to carry people all the way to the ultimate goal. All are invited to renew baiah to our GrandShaykh and they may observe their improvement. In our time, there may be one thousand Naqshbandi Shaykhs, but one GrandShaykh. Bringing them together, who will be the leader? If bringing 124,000 Sahaba together, who is leader? Abu Bakr.

Each Shaykh must appont one Grand Deputy. Mevlana Khalid Baghdadi appointed Shaykh Ismail but so many Naqshbandi Orders lost him in their silsila and lost also the secret of our GrandShaykh. Now so many Naqshbandi Shaykhs in Damascus, Aleppo and Homs cannot find a successor. Except for our GrandShaykh, no one has pointed to a Deputy. This is because we have Shaykh Ismail in our Silsila”.
