Description :

The Teachings of Mevlana Sheikh Abdullah Ad-Daghistani An-Naqshbandi, May Allah Sanctify His Blessed Soul, As expounded upon by our Master Mevlana Sheikh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani An-Naqshband.


We are going to speak from our Grandsheikh’s lectures, as he was a representative of the Holy Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in our time. Every Wali, saint, must be a representative of his Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in his own time. They are masters for teaching people the Ways of Allah Almighty. Each one of mankind is going towards his Lord, but each has a private and different destination. Everyone must know his destination. The Awliyâ’, saints, have lights in their hearts; they are not blind. For most people, their heart’s eyes are veiled. But Awliyâ’ have taken off the veils and, like Prophets, may look to the future. With their light, they may help people to their destinations, as Allah Almighty says to His Prophet, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, in the Holy Qur’ân:

« Say: This is my way, that I am inviting you unto your Lord, Allah Almighty, with exact vision and perfect guidance which I am on as are they who completely follow me.» --[Surat Yusuf, Verse 108]
