Remembering Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani (qad) With the Most Fundamental of His Teachings and Life’s Work -by Sayyid Ahmed Amiruddin


“The distinguished one who is sent to earth to rule is Shah Mardan. He is the Lion who is appointed to declare the honour of the Children of Adam on earth. They are sent from Heavens to earth.” (Qutb ul-Ghawth, al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil an-Naqshbandi al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘aziz, June 24th, 2013).

“SubhanAllah, all the Awliya are related to Shah Mardan it is said…this is how all the Awliya are standing, O Lion of Allah!” (Sultan ul-Awliya as-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, March 19th, 2013).

“I am taking from the sayings of Shah Mardan; Shah Mardan is taking from the sayings of Prophet (sws). Al khayru fil Jamiyya- there is blessings in gatherings and sohbah (association). Hz. Shah Naqshband is taking from him – Tariqatuna as Suhba – Our Way is association, friendship, spreading love, spreading respect. What we are teachings is love and respect. We want our people to love Shah Mardan and the one above him (the Holy Prophet (S)). We want our people to have respect for Shah Mardan, who is the Lion of the field of soldiers.” (Qutb ul-Ghawth al-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, March 19th, 2013).

“For us now, the most honored one is Shah-e Mardan, after the Prophet alayhi Salatu was-Salam.  Although the order (of the Rashidun Caliphs) goes Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, Sayyidina Umar and Sayyidina Uthman but the Seal is with Sayyidina Ali. He is the Shah-e Mardan!” (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim, Mar 2013).

“The Sultans come from his lineage, from his pure lineage.  Every Sultanate must be related to Shah Mardan, their lineage must reach him.  That is with Sultans.  Any country without a Sultan, they are rubbish, their lineage is satan.”(Sultan ul-Awliya as-Sayyid Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, March 19th, 2013).

“Our only responsibility as members of society, is to be seeking to pledge our allegiance to a righteous sovereign.”(Mawlana Shaykh Nazim,  Mercy Oceans: Divine Sources. p.31).

Selected Messages and Quotes Regarding the Right Divine of Ahl-al Bayt of the venerable  Qutb ul-Ghawth al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani

“…who has the right to carry the banner of the Caliphate? Only a descendant of the Prophet (saws)…” (April, 2012)

“I want that we take a Caliph (monarch) from Ahlul Bayt of the Prophet (saws) who is living now…” (April, 2012)

“…give the Kingdom (Saudi Arabia) to its rightful owners.  Like the believers must  give the amanat to its owners, Makka Mukarrama & Madina Al Munawwara are with the House of Saud now as a trust…give the kingdom back to its rightful owners as it was shown…from Heavenly Orders.”  (June 2012)

“Who is more honourable than the descendents of the Prophet (saws )? Woe to you! Woe to you! All the fitna/corruption is from this because you left the banner of the Prophet (saws) and his (saws) children…” (Oct, 2012).

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim’s life mission was to pave the way for the revival of the kingdom of the Ahl al-Bayt, styled as a caliphate.  Since Islam is a civilization with over 1450 years of a continuous history of the caliphate, according to the Shariah, as in the chains of hadith narrators, the office of the caliphate cannot have a broken link and must trace back to the era of the Rashidun Caliphs.  As such, the only heir to the office of the caliphate today could come forth from the descendants of the last Caliph of the Muslim world, Sharif Hussein of Hejaz, since he received permission and consent from the last Ottoman Caliph to claim this office to himself.  Anyone claiming affiliation to him should know this, as he made this undeniably clear during the last two years of his life. 

Know, he taught us to be monarchists, and respect all royal families, both Arab and from the House of David. 

He taught us to reject Islamist political states based upon election which are not under a royal family and to reject Dajjal and his political system referred to as democracy.  

Regarding Sultans, kings, he said, all kings must have a relation to Shah Mardan Ali ibn Abi Talib.  

He taught us the only way to overcome the Sultanat of Shaytan is not terrorism, or protesting in the streets, rather only through Light from the circles of Shah Mardan and by his words. 

He taught us there is no name higher than Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam. 

He taught us to now be united, and to understand everyone in Islam, who claims Islam, is looking for Light, the only source of happiness.  Hence on this grounds pray for a king from the descendants of Shah Mardan to unite the Muslim world and defeat Shaytan.

He gave us the importance of reciting the Bismillah formula, and declared Shah Mardan to be the head of every Sufi transmission.

Everything else Mawlana taught throughout his blessed life revolved around this central theme. 

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. 

My condolences to the Muslim world on this tremendous loss.  However, I hope people get this message and dedicate their lives and time for this same goal, in being true to their oath to their GrandShaykh.  Ameen.

Wisdom from Shah-e Mardan by Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘aziz

“They do not care about the wisdom sent by Shah Mardan, the Door of the City of Knowledge. Hazahumullah! May Allah make their faces dark. That’s why people of this age have no light in their faces. Is there light on the faces of those who forget Shah Mardan? Is there light in their hearts? Do they have wisdom? No, never.” – al-Sayyid al-Sharif Qutb ul-Ghawth Shaykh al-Ishraq Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani, Qutb Tariqat i-Naqshbandiyya-March 11th, 2013

Naqshbandi Gulbang i-Muhammadi (S)


Names of the Twelve Imams at Masjid An-Nabawi (S)

“Allah, Allah, may our evenings be good; may good be unfolded to us; may evil be repelled from us; may our enemies and adversaries be subjugated; may the benevolent aid of the Twelve Imams be ever with us; may those among us who reach the goal be not severed from the train of the Twelve Imams; may they be shielded from slander; may our wishes be granted and our supplications accepted. This is the gulbang of Muhammad: the light of the Prophet, the nobility of ‘Alī; our pīr Muhammad Bahā ad-Dīn Uvaysī, present and watchful, outward and inward; HU, HU!” [Risālat al-Tarīqat an-Naqshabandiya, f. 8a (margin)].

RT: King of Jordan wants to wage ‘WW3′ on ISIS


“SubhanAllah, how many years have passed since and now right under my eyes, a King! His Majesty King Abdullah. Now he came, he is one of Allah’s (subhanahu wa ta’ala) lions! He has pointed out that he is a desert lion! SubhanAllah! And he is now on the throne of Jordan and he is pressured from all directions…Those who support him will be from the people of Paradise…I received this message so my message to the King is that he should not hesitate…then Mahdi (‘alaihi salam) will come from his side from Qadam, in Sham…I am seeing him in the company of Imam Mahdi (‘alaihi salam) with three regiments…Let them give their allegiance to him, or they will be destroyed. This is the addressing that you came to hear. I was waiting for you…”-Sultan ul-Awliya al-Sayyid al-Sharif Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani qadasAllahu sirrahul ‘aziz, April 27th, 2012

“O Arabs, who will you fight for to defeat ISIS? When you decided to revolt against Assad without a Sultan, you brought ISIS into your country. In whose name shall you be authorized to kill? Who will be your leader? Clergy? A warlord, like what happened in Afghanistan? Baathism? Communism? Satan? Capitalism and Democracy which is alien to your entire civilization, even from the era predating Islam? Albani? Hizb ut-Tahrir who denies the Divine Right of Quraysh? Salafism which belies your history, and declares your fathers apostates, and Sufism, which was brought into Egypt by Saladin, innovation and evil? Wahhabism? Ikhwan? Nasrallah? Iran? Muqtada al-Sadar? The post-Saddam Iraqi government? Bashar al Assad? America? NATO? Turkey? Libya? Who? Who can promise you martyrdom and entrance to Heaven, the Queen of which is Fatima al-Zahra, and Princes of which are al-Hasan and al-Husayn?  Who can promise you to drink at the Pond of Kawthar, where you will meet the Family of the Prophet, and face him regarding them?  Who can promise you this and such a honorable life and death if you are killed fighting for their throne other than an already recognized king from the illustrious Quraysh tribe, the Hashemite clan, an Adnani Arab, a descendant of Qedar and Ishmael, from the family of the Sultan of Medina?”-Sayyid Amiruddin, November 18th, 2014

“They are trying to invent falsely a linkage to a caliphate, a link to our history in Islam that has no truth or bearing to our history.”-His Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan, March 1st, 2015

“This is our war, this is not the West’s war.  We are the spearheads of this war…and I repeat now, this is definitely not the US’s war, this is our war…”-Jordanian Interior Minister Hussein Majali, Feb 6th, 2015

Mar 2, 2015
King Abdullah of Jordan has called the battle against the Islamic State “World War 3” in what is a “generational fight” to overcome these “outlaws of Islam.” Speaking to CNN, he implored all religions to come together, adding “this is our war.”

He made a point of referring to the fight against the Islamic State as a “third World War” and called upon all nations to come together to help counter the threat posed by the militant group since they conquered large swathes of Iraq and Syria last year.

“So this is our war. And we have a moral responsibility to reach out to those Muslims, to protect them, and to stop them before they reach our border,” King Abdullah said, speaking to CNN.

The king did not advocate bombarding ISIS positions with nuclear missiles or thousands of tanks, but is advocating a united front, which would bring “Muslims, Christians and other religions together.” He stressed that the ideological element of the conflict will be the hardest element to solve. The US and its allies have ample ammunition to pound Islamic State forces for decades to come.

The Jordanian king has an ax to grind with the Islamic State. He watched his country mourn the horrific death of captured pilot Moath al-Kasasbeh, who was burnt alive by the Islamic State. However, rather than intimidating a nation of around 6.5 million, the actions undertaken by the group, formerly known as ISIS or ISIL, have had the opposite effect, the King believes.

The monarch mentioned that throughout his country’s history, Jordan has always “punched way above our weight,” while the barbaric nature of the Islamic State has “motivated Jordanians to sort of rally around the flag and the gloves have come off.”

King Abdullah, dubbed the “warrior king” after 35 years of military service, pledged that the country would start playing a larger role in the US-led military collation. He even cut his visit to the US short in the wake of the pilot’s death and tried to rally a nation by appearing in military fatigues and black gloves in an Instagram photo, taken nine months ago.

From being an ally of the US fight against Islamic State with reservations six months ago, where according to a poll last September by the Centre for Strategic Studies at the University of Jordan, only 62% of Jordanians consider ISIS to be a terrorist organization, Jordan has now become among the most eager members of the anti-ISIS alliance.

The country’s interior minister, Hussein al-Majali, has said that Jordan will “wipe [ISIS] out completely.” According to the Pentagon, Jordan dropped 72 bombs in the first wave of its revenge. Getting new ammunition should not be a problem. King Abdullah has managed to negotiate for Washington to commit to an increase in security aid from $660 million to $1 billion for 2015-2017.

Despite being a key US ally in the Middle East, Jordan has not always been as ready to follow Washington’s lead. In September, Amman was concerned at US plans to arm and train more fighters of the Free Syrian Army, a supposedly moderate militant force fighting against the Syrian government.

A report in the World News Daily, a US conservative news website stated a senior Jordanian security official as saying that Amman views the Syrian rebel group in its current state as ideologically close to extremists like the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front and the IS itself.

Jordan has its own pressing claims regarding the Islamic State. Not only does the country share a border with both nations, it is also seeing a large number of disgruntled jihadists trying to return home, Reuters reports.

Those who do return are often picked up at the border and sent for military trial. One source who is familiar with the policy of Jordan’s intelligence services, said: “We turned a blind eye to you going, but if you return, we will catch you and lock you up,” the source said, speaking about the case of a 23-year-old man who was trying to leave Syria, the news agency added.

Around 2,000-2,500 Jordanians are known to have joined and are fighting for the Islamic State, The Guardian reported in February. This is the third largest foreign Arab contingent after Saudi Arabia and Tunisia. Many Jordanians seeing joining the Islamic State as a chance to move out of poverty.


Shaykh al-Akbar Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim: “There is more than one Adam”

image “‘…I said: “Once in a visionary experience   (waqi’a) I had, I saw an individual circumambulating [the Ka’ba], who told me that he was among my ancestors and gave me his name [124].  Then I asked him about the time of his death, and he told me it was 40,000 years [earlier].  So I proceeded to ask him about Adam, because of what has been established in our chronology concerning his period [i.e., that it was much more recent]. Then he said to me: “Which Adam are you asking about? About the most recent Adam?'”” 124. This encounter is described in greater detail in chapter 390 of the Futuhat (devoted to the inner meaning of “time”, al-zaman), in a passage (III 459.8-14) which clearly brings out the…character of this particular experience. “Now God caused me to see…while I was going around the Ka’ba…” There this mysterious “ancestor” also reminds Ibn Arabi of the hadith of the Prophet stating that, “God created 100,000 Adams.”  [Al-Futuhat Al Makkiya: The Meccan Revelations. Ibn Al ‘Arabi. Volume 1. P. 222. Translated by William C. Chittick & James W. Morris. Pir Press. New York. ISBN 1-879708-16-7] “Our GrandShaykh says, ‘Knowledge is an endless ocean…Saints know about from before the time of Adam (peace be upon him)….Our GrandShaykh said that this is the period of our father Adam (peace be upon him) and his sons. We are living in it now. But before our father’s period, so many Adams have been created-no one knows their (exact)number!…Each Adam, and his sons were generally like us, in that they may be recognized as sons of Adam. All are servants of our Lord. Also, He Almighty, alone, knows how many Adams will come after us, how many periods there will be….Our GrandShaykh says, ‘Allah Almighty was addressing those Adams that were created before our father, Adam (peace be upon him) with the secrets of the Holy Quran. Quran, the Holy book, contains endless secret knowledge. Its secrets are such that you can find, included in it, all news from before and after us.” (Mercy Oceans: The Teachings of Maulana Abdullah al-Faizi ad-Daghestani, on p. 104-105)

Political Zionism Another Form of Ideological Fundamentalism?


His Majesty King Abdullah I, King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1946–51)

The Political Zionist doctrine of the Netanyahu government that claims the whole of former Palestine as being a ‘gift from God’ is essentially ideological fundamentalism i.e. a ritualistic reading of scripture and a reliance upon dogma – a position also known as ‘extremism’.

It is this fundamentalist ideology that gives the state of Israel its sole claim to the West Bank and East Jerusalem – which position it relies upon exclusively in its assertion that its policy that has persuaded half a million of its citizens to settle on Palestinian land is legitimate when the entire international community has branded it a violation of international law.

The paradox in the status quo established by the Likud government to back-up its claim to the occupied Palestinian Territories, is that Israel actually claims to be a secular state. This means that its claim to the West Bank and East Jerusalem is merely a fabricated position used to justify that which is unjustifiable.

Political or religious extremism is unacceptable to the democratic nations of the world in the 21st century, and the UN Security Council should pass a resolution to that effect. In the event that any UNSC member would use its veto against such a resolution then it will be clear to all as to where the illegality lies; who supports and fuels the conflict and who it is that ensures the continuity of the illegal settlements and the dispossession of the oldest continuous indigenous people of the region, the Palestinian Arabs who have farmed and lived on the land for over a thousand years.

Fundamentalism either in Paris, London, Jerusalem or Hebron needs to be dealt with in an appropriate manner by democratic governments. We have all seen the damaging violence that such extremist beliefs can bring to the community of free nations.

Action is needed now to root-out fundamentalism wherever it rears its head – regardless of the attitude of any state or party that overtly, or covertly, supports such violence.

Re: Koran should be read at Prince Charles’ coronation

In The Name of God, All Compassionate and All Merciful

Dear Lord Harries,

I pray this finds you in the best of health, by the grace of God I am also fine.  I wanted to congratulate you for taking a brave stance in suggesting that verses of the Holy Quran also be read at the coronation of His Royal Highness Prince Charles.

I would like to start with a brief introduction of myself. I am a born and raised Canadian Muslim of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, authorized by the late Grand Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani (d.2014), who was regarded as the world’s leading recognized authority on Sufism this century. I am a published author and have lectured at several Canadian universities. I have advised Canadian officials on policy related matters since 2005.  I was personally called upon by the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, have spoke at conferences alongside the US Vice President Al Gore, some of Canada’s leading intellectuals and was called to testify before the Senate of Canada.  I have made over one hundred and ten national media appearances, am mentioned by name in the WikiLeaks Cables, and am cited as an ‘inspirational leader’  in the “Laurier M.A. Journal on Religion And Culture”.

I advocate, faith based radicalization – the catalyst of which is a misinterpretation of faith, is in fact nothing more than a political fallacy and as such, a political alternative must also be offered to at risk groups in addition a faith-based counter-narrative. I hold the political alternative to be monarchy and monarchism, and believe, in the context of Islamist terrorism and radicalization, closer cultural ties between the United Kingdom’s Muslims and the monarchy is key.

Let us not forget the Children of Abraham include both the Children of Israel, and the Children of Ishmael. The Holy Bible and the Holy Quran are the holy books of the Israelites and Ishmaelites. Every citizen of the United Kingdom, and Canada for that matter, has sworn an oath of allegiance and loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen at the time of obtaining their citizenship.

At the roots of our monarchy is the inextricable relation between the monarch and the Church. Keeping in mind the Preface to the 39 Articles of the Church of England which describe the monarch as ‘being by God’s Ordinance, according to Our just Title, Defender of the Faith and … Supreme Governor of the Church of England’  and that our future king, the Prince of Wales, has commented thoughtfully that as monarch he would like to make the role of the Crown in defending that freedom more explicit, and so be called ‘Defender of Faith’, I have compiled as a follow up to your statement in the press twelve relevant translated verses from the Holy Quran which I propose be considered to be read at the coronation followed by prayers from the Holy Quran also to be read aloud for the king.

Additionally, given that there are non-Christian, Muslim subjects of the monarchy who are loyal and have sworn allegiance to the monarch by virtue of citizenship, but cannot relate to the Christian faith, I propose the following measures be taken with cooperation of the Church of England:

  1. Develop a non-Christian yet Abrahamic faith friendly version of the relevant main Articles of the 39 Articles of the Church of England which could connect willing subjects through a subsidiary non-Christian organization to the spiritual office of our royal family.
  2. Develop an office under a subsidiary organization for a “Naqeeb al-Ashraaf” and a “Shaykh al-Islam” for British Muslims in recognition of their sworn oath of allegiance to the monarch and loyalty to the royal family.
  3. The creation of offices of nobility for qualifying Muslim subjects.  Arabs and Muslim societies have had monarchies for nearly 1400 years, many of whom had ties to our royal family.  An example would be the Asif Jahi dynasty of the former Princely Nizam State of Hyderabad. There are descendants of these dynasties now living in the United Kingdom, who have also sworn allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and acquired citizenship.
  4. Calling upon Muslim subjects in the United Kingdom to institutionalize prayers for the well being of the monarch and the royal family after every Friday prayer.

A peaceful co-existence of the Children of Abraham is possible in the West starting with countries under our monarchy.  The need to bridge the gap between non-Christian followers of the Abrahamic faiths and our monarchy is not limited to the Arab and Muslim immigrant community.  In fact, monarchism must be encouraged and proliferated in the Jewish community in the United Kingdom as well, the vast majority of whom, in my experience, are more loyal to the Jewish State of Israel in the Middle East than they are to both the United Kingdom and our monarchy.

There is room for political re-illumination in both communities and I am told the time is now.

With kind regards.

Yours Sincerely,

Sayyid Amiruddin

Proposed Recitation Verses from the Koran for His Royal Highness Prince Charles’ Coronation
Compiled by Sayyid Amiruddin

1:01:01 In The Name of God, All Compassionate, All Merciful

2:30 And [mention], when your Lord said to the Angels: “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a viceroy” they said: Wilt Thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee? He said: Surely I know that which ye know not

7:11 And We created Adam, then fashioned him, then We told the Angels: Fall ye prostrate before Adam! And they fell prostrate, except for Satan. He was not of those who prostrated

3:33 Verily God did elevate Adam and Noah, the Family of Abraham, and the Family of ‘Imran over the worlds, Offspring, one of the other: And God heareth and knoweth all things

5:12 God made a Covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised among them Twelve Chieftains, and God said: Lo! I am with you. If ye establish worship and pay the poor-due, and believe in My Messengers and support them, and lend unto God a kindly loan, surely I shall remit your sins, and surely I shall bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Whoso among you disbelieveth after this will go astray from a plain road  

19:54 Those were some of the Prophets on whom God did bestow His Grace,- of the descendents of Adam, and of those who We carried (in the Ark) with Noah, and of the descendents of Abraham and (also) Israel of those whom We guided and chose. Whenever the Signs of (God) Most Gracious were rehearsed to them, they would fall down in prostrate adoration and in tears

2:248 And their Prophet said to them, “Surely the sign of his kingship is that the Ark, will come up to you; in it (are) a Covenant from your Lord, and a remnant of what the House of Moses, and the House of Aaron left (behind), the Angels carrying it. Surely in that is indeed a sign for you, in case you are believers

2:251 So they routed them by God’s leave and David slew Goliath; and God gave him the kingdom and wisdom, and taught him of that which He willeth. And if God had not repelled some men by others the earth would have been corrupted. But God is a Lord of Kindness to (His) creatures

34:013 Give thanks, O House of David! Few of My bondmen are thankful

38:26 (And it was said unto him): O David! Lo! We have set thee as a viceroy in the earth; therefore judge aright between mankind, and follow not desire that it beguile thee from the way of God. Lo! those who wander from the way of God have an awful doom, for as much as they forgot the Day of Reckoning

27:15 And We verily gave knowledge unto David and Solomon, and they said: Praise be to God, Who hath preferred us above many of His believing slaves!

4:54 But We had already given the Family of Abraham the Book and Wisdom, and conferred upon them a Mighty Kingdom

Prayer for the King

3:26 Say: “O God! The All Possessor of the kingdom, Thou givest the kingdom to whomsoever Thou pleasest and takest away the kingdom from whomsoever Thou pleasest, and Thou exaltest whom Thou pleasest and abasest whom Thou pleasest in Thine hand is the good; surely, Thou hast power over all things

1:01:01-07 In The Name of God, the All Compassionate and All Merciful. All Praise be to God, Lord of all the worlds. The Compassionate, the Merciful. Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help. Guide us on the straight path, the path of those who have received your grace; not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray. Amen.
