In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
Dear brothers and sisters,
I am wishing all the best and extending my regards to everyone. All of our prayers are for Mawlana Shaykh Nazim to have a very long life and with good health and strength, and we pray that Allah keep Mawlana Shaykh’s blessings upon all of us. We ask for his prayers and support, and that he may continue to enlighten us with his wisdom – that wisdom which is glowing in every direction like a rainbow filled with countless lights that illuminate our journey to enlightenment. To us Mawlana Shaykh Nazim is our Way. He is our love. He is our heart. He is the spotlight on the stage of life. The only wish we have is to be always in his presence, studying and learning from his experiences in the two worlds: the world of this life and the world of heavenly life. We believe he is our door to the Prophet and we believe that the Prophet is our door to the Divine Presence. We know that we are weak and helpless, stretched in every direction in this world that exhausts our energy, and we cannot be replenished except through our Shaykh’s support.
Today, technology has transformed this world into a global village. It is just as Grandshaykh Abdullah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani predicted. I once heard him say that, from the end of the 20th century through the first 10 or 15 years of the 21st century, technology will be advancing at a high speed to attain its highest peak. Now, we are now seeing that prediction come true. Technological advancement is accelerating and, through it, people can reach each other in moments and move through space in a short time. This is as the Prophet predicted 1400 years ago, when he said that both time and the dimension of space will shrink.
In consideration of different aspects of the era in which we live, we say with due respect to everyone who considers himself authorized by Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in any capacity that each such one is responsible for his or her own actions, behavior, websites, email, telephone calls, daily activities, weekly activities and group activities. Given this, we must emphasize that they are in no way are related or connected to the branch of the Naqshbandi-Haqqani Sufi Order of America (NHSOA) incorporated in Michigan, USA.
The NHSOA is only responsible for its websites and the congregations that are related to it and affiliate organizations, namely:
Islamic Supreme Council of America
Naqshbandi-Haqqani Sufi Order of America
Additionally, we are responsible only for the following websites:
Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
