Question:

Assalam alaikum,

This is related to my earlier post:
http://eshaykh.com/sufism/two-questions-2/

1) Interpreting a dream, Shaykh Nazim said that the Prophet (SAW) has accepted the one who saw the dream. In this context, what does it mean “to be accepted by the Prophet (SAW)”?

2) In the dergah interpreting a dream, Hajjah Rukayyah said: “the one who saw the dream is one of us, she is a Naqshbandi.” Hajjah was aware that she has already been a Naqshbandi mureed for a while. So, what does it mean “to be a Naqshbandi in the specific sense?”

Jazaakallah Khayr

Answer:

wa `alaykum salam!

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,

Allah ta`ala knows best, but one meaning might be that Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (Allah ta`ala blesses him) , at the order of Prophet (Peace be upon him), has accepted the person in question, and is engaged in the work of “engraving” the heart of that one with whichever of the the beautiful names of Allah ta`ala he likes – according to what he knows and we don’t.  This “engraving” may be through an instant, or through long experiences, according to the person’s preparedness.  Again, Allah ta`ala knows better and best, wa Rasulullah (peace be upon him), and Mawlana Shaykh (Allah ta`ala grants him long life and endless higher honors).
