Dream: Confusion about joining shadhiliya


Assalam u alayekum Sheikh Hisham!

I sent you an e-mail (2-3 months ago) to [email protected] before coming to tariqah in which I had narrated my dream that I had seen Grandshaykh Abdullah. But now I feel that I had not identified him correctly.

Also I now remember that the person I saw in my dream was saying something about a province named Shaazal or Shaazalah which had been extinct. I didn’t know exactly at that time that whether such a place exists or existed ? I have not still identified that person. Did this mean that I should join Shadhili Order as well?
Forgive me for I couldn’t narrate my dream correctly earlier.

Shukran ya Syyedi.


wa `alaykum salam,

As Mawlana Shaykh Hisham says, the first inspiration is always the correct one.

By taking baya` with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim you have, in effect, also received permission in the Shadhili Tariqah from him as he holds it among other Sufi paths, but the important thing is not what we call ourselves; it is following our Master sincerely and truthfully and combating our lower selves.
