About some Sheikhs


As Salamu Alaikum;

I want to be sure about certain sheikhs who claim to have a authentic silsilah.
1) A certain sheikh named Hasan Galip Kuscuoglu in Turkey. He says that “whoever says that Allah exists is a Muslim”, and he said that “Ataturk is a very holy man, he was appointed by god to improve the society”
I’m strongly of the opinion that he is a fake.

2) Second group is in NY, and they claim to be the followers of the late Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak and they call themselves “Nur Ashki Jerrahi Sufis” ( I have benefitted greatly from Sheikh Muzaffers books) but when I looked them up a bit, the current head of the tariqa is a woman, and the previous leader was Lex Hixon, and he had written books about Hinduism etc. after he was the head of this group. Can you clarify for me please.


wa `alaykum salam,

Allah (swt)’s Most Beloved Prophet (s) has said,

The best of Allah’s servants are those who when seen remind you of God; the worst of God’s servants are those who spread tales to do mischief and separate friends, and look for theĀ  faults of the good.

Please read this previous post.
