salam u alaykum,
i love mawlana shaykh nazim and i want(ED) to be his mureed, may ALLAH protect him. in fact it has been two years since when i really consider him my Shaykh, but what i have seen about Haqqanis disturbs me very much.. why are the khulafa fighting? some people are blaming mawlana shaykh Hisham for things, others are saying “we are the real representatives of mawlana shaykh nazim”, and all? what is this…
on sme sites u c sme of his deputies say that imam mahdi is son of hasan askari… and then on this site, other students of mawlana say that mawlana dsnt beleive this…1) who is real rep. of mawlana? 2) why is all this fighting?
wa ‘alaykum salam,
Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani has clearly appointed three as his representatives, capable of giving irshad:
Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, Shaykh Adnan Kabbani, Shaykh Muhammad Adil.
Others are assigned to lead dhikr, give baya` and relate Mawlana Shaykh’s teachings in their local areas. They are not authorized to give irshad, spiritual guidance.
The “fighting” you speak of is a reflection of the intense love each representative feels towards our master; it is not symptomatic of destructive fitna, though at times it may appear so. Keep in mind the letter Shaykh Hisham Kabbani and Shaykh Adnan Kabbani jointly authored last year, where they said:
We want to remind everyone and stress that we are one. We are brothers in tariqah and by blood. We are like two hands, one cannot clap without the other.
As we said awliya use tests. And this test was a means to evaluate everyone’s love to Shaykh Adnan and Shaykh Hisham. All that has been said on different forums, blogs, Facebook sites and other websites were put there only a means of testing the mureeds. Now that the test has ended we must remind mureeds of Mawlana Shaykh that there is no conflict between us, Shaykh Adnan and Shaykh Hisham. We also wish to say that there is no way that anyone can separate us, Shaykh Adnan and Shaykh Hisham. We are always one face, one body, one person, one spirit and one soul.
