The Biggest Awliya of Our Time
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm. “Alā inna awliyā’a Llāhi lā khawfun ‘alayhim wa-lā hum yaḥzanūn” (10:62). Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘aẓīm. There are many Awliyā’ of Allāh ﷻ. There are hidden ones and known ones. Sayyidunā Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim was from among the known ones. He is from the beloved servants of Allāh ﷻ. We say shukr to Allāh ﷻ for favouring us and letting us follow him.
Everyone knows what a great holy man, what a great awliyā’ he is, shukr to Allāh ﷻ. Even when he was born, Sayyidunā Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn gave ṣuḥbah to Shaykh ‘Abdu Llāh ad-Dāghistānī and said, “A child of ours is born who will carry the burden of this ṭarīqah and who will take it from East to West. He will become the means of guidance to tens of thousands, millions of people.” Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn related this good news. He gave good tidings in such detail that, sorry to say, he even related the size of his shoes. Sayyidunā Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn was so happy. We are lucky now to have a share in the miracle of Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim and the greatness of Sayyidunā Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn. The man who told us this was our murīd. His father was a murīd of Shaykh Sharafu d-Dīn who heard and told about it.
By the wisdom of Allāh ﷻ, though we were guessing that Mawlānā Shaykh Nāẓim would live for more than 100 years, he passed away physically. And he is still with us spiritually. He is guiding people. And many people are coming. Many people reach guidance through his ṣuḥbah and join this ṭarīqah. Furthermore, as his miracle thousands and tens of thousands of people see him in their dreams. And this miracle of his is continuing. They become Muslim and reach guidance. Muslims who have lost their way return to the right path. They reach guidance and follow this way. And this miracle is a sign of his being an Awliyā’ of a very high rank. He has reached all of you who have ever come to this mosque, this dergah, other dergahs. You have joined the way of Allāh ﷻ, and reached the love of Allāh ﷻ through his love. You reached the love of our Holy Prophet ﷻ. With permission of Allāh ﷻ, you will reach that in paradise as well, through him and his barakah. This door is a great door. It is the door of the friends of Allāh ﷻ. Allāh ﷻ doesn’t let His ﷻ friends down. Certainly, He ﷻ will make those who follow him happy, here and hereafter, in shā’a Llāh.
As a successor of our Holy Prophet ṣallá Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam he is mercy to all people. As he followed the way of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, he brings mercy and benefit to all mankind. Even non-Muslims used to acknowledge his ṣuḥbah, his preachings and his words. They used to accept them.
The way he was in this world, shukr to Allāh ﷻ, we know that his spirituality and support are always with us and upon us. His miracle is that he is a shield for us, as he is the beloved servant of Allāh ﷻ. As we said, we will be together in ākhirah as well, in shā’a Llāh. We will meet physically again and will never be apart in paradise, in shā’a Llāh.
