About: Hajjah Amina bint Ayesha

The late Hajjah Amina Adil, may God grant her peace, was called by all who know her, Hajjah Anne, mother. She was wife of the Grand Shaykh of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil for over fifty years. In addition to her own four children, sixteen grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren, she raised and nurtured with love and wisdom the thousands of students and visitors who descend yearly upon the humble house of the Shaykh in Cyprus. Not one to spend time in idle talk, Hajja Anne taught the art of servanthood by serving the Shaykh and his guests tirelessly with good humor, cooking everyday for everyone. She taught respect for all God’s gifts by never wasting anything and using and reusing everything. She taught worship by following faithfully Shariah and Sunnah and maintaining her Sufi practices. She taught patience, kindness, respect and hard work by her daily example. As a scholar, she passed on to new generations from her vast knowledge stories of the prophets and saints, stories used to teach wisdom since the beginning of time.
