"As for anyone who is related to Mowlana Sheikh Nazim as a mureed,
the Angel of Death Israel (Alai) will have nothing to do with him, the
soul of this mureed at the time of his death will be taken by Mowlana
Sheikh Nazim, he shall look at the mureed and immediately the soul
of that mureed will leave his body. There is nothing for either the Angel
of death or for the Angels of the grave to do with the mureeds of Sheikh
ISLAMIC BELIEF: No hidden knowledge in
Islaam, everything is given in the Qur’aan and Sunnah.
The Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) said in an authentic
"I have not left anything which Allaah ordered you with,
except that I have ordered you with it, nor anything that Allaah
forbade you, except that I forbade you from it." (Saheeh, al-Baihaqee
THE NAQSHBANDI BELIEF: Sheikh
has hidden knowledge.
In spite of the above clear hadith, the deviant Naqshbandi claim that
there is ‘secret knowledge’ with the Sheikh, for example on page 60-61
of the book ‘Haqiqat ul Haqqani’ in the 3rd paragraph
it reads -
"Vast amounts of hidden knowledge have been communicated to his
mureeds by Mowlana Sheikh Nazim in this manner. Questions by these mureeds
regarding day to day life, or questions relating to religion … and also
many other subjects have been answered by Mowlana Sheikh Nazim. When this
type of communication has been granted to a mureed, he no longer needs
to resort to books to further his knowledge."
ISLAMIC BELIEF: When Allaah loves a person…
The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) said as narrated
by Abu Huraira (radhiallaahu `anhu) that,
"…Allaah said…the most beloved things with which my slave comes
nearer to Me, is with what I have enjoined upon him, and my slave keeps
on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (praying or doing extra
deeds besides what is obligatory) till I love him, so I become his sense
of hearing with which he hears, and his sense of sight with which he sees,
and his hand with which he grips…"
(Saheeh Bukhaaree, Vol 8, Hadith 509, Arabic - English Trans)
[The above hadith should not be misinterpreted by the reader. What it
simply means is as has been explained by the Scholars of Hadith is that,
when Allaah becomes his sense of hearing means the servant will only hear
Halaal speech and will keep away from hearing forbidden speech. And regarding
sight, then it means he will only see that which is permissible to see
and keep away from seeing that which is Haraam and in the case of the hands
then it means he will only touch and use his hands in that which is Halaal
and will refrain from touching and doing Haraam with it.]
THE NAQSHBANDI BELIEF: Directly
contradicts the above hadith.
On page 62 of the book ‘Haqiqat ul Haqqani’ in the last paragraph
"Certain of the mureeds of Mowlana Sheikh Nazim experience that
Mowlana appears within them, when this happens, they are no longer conscious
of themselves as themselves, they lose their identity and are conscious
of themselves as their Sheikh. They see through Mowlana’s eyes when the
look, they hear through Mowlana’s ears when they hear, and they speak Mowlana’s
words when they speak.."
16. THE NAQSHBANDI
BELIEF: Sheikh can be in any place at the
On page 33 of the book ‘Haqiqat ul Haqqani’ it reads,
"Mowlana Sheikh Nazim can also be present in his shape and body
in several places at the same time."
Also on page 65 of the same book it reads in the 2nd paragraph,
"Sometimes, mureeds have been transported to other countries and
places. For example, they may be transported in a moment to London…some
are known to have visited Mecca, Medina, London and Baghdad in moments
by the power and the grace of Sheikh Nazim."
THE ISLAMIC POSITION on
the above Naqshbandi position
In a Hadith, the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu `alaihi wa sallam) said,
"There are three types of Jinn, one type flies through the air…"
(Transmitted by al-Haakim, Tabaraani and al-Baihaqi, Arabic)
And Allaah says in the Qur’aan,
"And verily, there were men among mankind who took shelter with
the masculine among the jinns, but they (jinns) increased them (mankind)
in sin and disbelief." (Qur’aan, 72:6)
