`As-sallamu ‘alaykum Mawlana Shaykh Hisham,
Thank you for the time you have given me in DC. May Allah bless you & your family. Things have been building up over the years. My realization of alienation is getting deeper. I have been staying at home for over 5 months rarely going out. I was in Cyprus last year and deeply realized that every second I spend away from Mawlana Shaykh Nazim is time in death. I really want to spend my life near Mawlana & near you. I cannot go back to my normal life. I have tried for years. About 8 months ago my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer which deepened my alienation. I feel that after my mother passes away, I may have nobody to bury me when i die. Please pray for me for an opening to live within a good spiritual community near my Shaykhs.
wa `alaykum salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh,
Insha-Allah we pray for your mother that Allah will put her in Paradise. She is already in the Presence of Prophet (s) and Grandshaykh `Abdullah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani (q). To be with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani all the time is an honor, but it is not advisable because there any mistakes which are like fire. Although there are many people around him, they don’t care and they are doing lot of mistakes and causing lot of difficulties and troubles to others. That doesn’t mean they are near and they are being rewarded, rather, they are doing lot of sins and they are in fire. To go from time to time is OK, and we pray for you that Allah swt makes an opening for you.
Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
