I really love Shaykh Nazim and this tariqa but I have heard so much stuff which put me off it. For example like Shaykh Nazim has said many things which didn’t come true, he said Mahdi was in Hajj last year, and about controlling angels, jinns an all human kind and so on. This is all really confusing and I want to know if Sheikh Nazim really said that or if it’s just something made up by someone? Also, I’m confused with all the Harun Yahya stuff, that Shaykh Nazim said he has the noor of Yusuf as and that Shaykh Nazim is calling him son etc even tho Harun Yahya doesn’t do good stuff and even Shaykh Abdul Kerim had some really good lectures where he said the truth about Harun Yahya. Please help to understand all this.

To avoid confusion, especially in such a case as your’s, take from one source and stick to it, i.e. Mawlana Shaykh Nazim.
There are things that Mawlana Shaykh Nazim speaks about that most people, including the vast majority of his own followers, may not fully understand. At most times, Shaykh Hisham has taken great pains to explain the meanings behind Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s words. Not forgetting that we may not see what he sees, so when he speaks from such a level, it is puzzling for the newbies, but a reality for those who are in the know.
Lastly, do not be quick to judge anyone.
