Who is the new Shaykh of the Golden Chain?


Assalamu Alaykum.

Like everyone, I am deeply saddened by the loss of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q).

Out of respect for him, I am enquiring to find out with which physically living Shaykh my baya and rabita should lie.

Who is Mawlana’s inheritor, and the 41st Shaykh in the Golden Chain? And who are the khalifas of the new Shaykh?

I would respectfully request an answer as soon as possible, so I may know how to proceed.

Thank you. Wasalam.


wa `alaykum salam,

As Mawlana Shaykh Hisham, one of the three duly appointed caliphs of Mawlana Sultan al-Awliya Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, said:

The Secret of the Naqshbandi Tariqah is in the Hands of Shah-i-Mardaan…

So Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) called on Shah-i-Mardaan and kept calling on Shah-i-Mardaan, and he said, “I am pulling up the secret of the Naqshbandi Order and I am giving it to you (Sayyidina `Ali)! This is your job, you are handling it!” as Grandshaykh `AbdAllah said, “When the shaykh of a Tariqah leaves dunya, he gives to Sayyidina `Ali (r) and Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a).”

And so now all tariqahs are on hold, in the hands of Sayyidina `Ali (r) and Sayyidina al-Mahdi (a) except for the Naqshbandi Order, it is still dripping. But before leaving dunya, Mawlana Shaykh was giving to the hand of Shah-i-Mardaan, to take it in his hands! That is a secret, that giving to Shah-i-Mardaan! That is a secret that Mawlana Shaykh (q) sent, to understand what is the meaning of calling on Shah-i-Mardaan. It cannot be passed in a half minute video clip! That secret has already been passed from Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil (q) to Sayyidina al-Mahdi (s) and to Shah-i-Mardaan, but it takes time.

So that is carrying the whole burden of this world and the burden of every mureed on their shoulders. That is the passing of power, which takes time. So Mawlana Shaykh was passing that power every Fajr prayer to Shah-i-Mardaan, saying, “I am ready for you,” and as soon as he says, “Yaa Shah-i-Mardaan!” Sayyidina `Ali (r) appears and takes from him, takes from him. Mawlana Shaykh did not leave dunya until he gave every single mureed one-by-one to Sayyidina `Ali (r) and to Sayyidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (r), from these two sides, before he left dunya! That is why Tariqat an-Naqshbandiyya al-`Aliyya or Nazimiyya is there now on the lowest gear, the lowest acceleration, until Signs of Last Days appear more and the appearance of Sayyidina Mahdi (a). Then it will boom up and will be boosted up to cover this whole dunya and mureeds of Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil (q) will be like stars on a dark night. Now it is slowly; no Sultan al-Awliya, but Sultan al-Awliya now is Shah-i-Mardaan.

بَلْ أَحْيَاء عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ

{No, they live, finding their sustenance in the Presence of their Lord.} (Surat `Ali Imraan, 3:169)

For sure, they are living in the presence of their Lord, being provided for. Provided with what? Provided with what they like to give to Ummat an-Nabi (s) and the followers of Tariqah; they are waiting to give at any moment. So they are able to come from Hayyaat al-Barzakh, the life in the time between the grave and Resurrection Day, the Interlife, and their spirits are free.

The caliphs representing Mawlana Shaykh Nazim remain the same as in his life, Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani, Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani and Mawlana Shaykh Mehmet Adil. Rabita continues to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim.
