The first time I came upon Sufism was when I was studying it as part of my a-level program. Eventually, I found my way to the Naqshbandi-Haqqani website and after having thought very carefully for months, I decided to initiate into the Haqqani-Naqshbandi Order through the Internet. While taking bayah, I had this very very subtle spiritual feeling.
That night, I had a vision of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, I saw him along with a man who I later identified as Shaykh Hisham coming to my house on car. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim was inside the car. They were going somewhere, they didnt come inside the house (or maybe they did and they were leaving. I don’t properly remember.
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim was seated inside the black car, in the front right seat. I asked for permission and then kissed his hands and feet. That’s where the dream ended.
Audhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajim
Bismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm:
Wa `alaykumu s-salāmu wa rahmatu l-lāhi wa barakātuh,
This dream is a true dream giving you the good tiding that your baya has been accepted by Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in the most distinguished Naqshbandi Way, and Allah knows best.
