I saw [private] with some women talking about me. Then that women led me to Mawlana Sheikh Nazim. There was another guy of my age. And we two start to look after Mawlana. We carried out all his instructions and always have been close to Him. One day I was cleaning Mawlana’s room while he was in the bed and I saw a photo on the closet. I asked Mawlana “O Sheikh is that your Master?”. He said “Yes”. I started to cry and Mawlana came to me, embraced me and said “Don’t worry you’ll be happy in this life and in the next. You don’t need anything. Don’t marry, just serve Me”. I don’t know what to do and to think because I had an intention to marry, and I heard that marriage is 100% iman. What should i do in my life? God bless you.
Mawlana is very strict on marriage for everyone who is fit for it. So many times he quoted the Hadith: Marriage is my Sunna and whoever avoids my Sunna is not part of us.Therefore his words are not meant literally but in the sense of: don’t worry too much about marriage but worry about adab to Awliya as that resolves everything.
