Sufi Master in Cyprus preaches love to counter radicalism
Shaykh Nazim, a giant in spreading Sufism in the West, passes away at the age 92, on 07.05.2014.
Muhammad Nazim Adil al-Qubrusi al-Haqqani, known simply as Shaykh Nazim, was part of the resurgence of Islamic mysticism (Sufism) in the 20th century.
He spent decades organizing Sufi activities and initiating people into his Naqshbandi Sufi order.
Shaykh Nazim was a charismatic presence, to his followers nothing shy of the “Pole of Saints.” His followers recount tales of his miraculous presence, and the Baraka (grace/ “Force”) that surrounded him.
Historically, it can be said that Shaykh Nazim played an important role in spreading Sufi teachings in the West. The Ramadan gatherings in the Peckham Mosque in London were an important part of Sufi revival. Shaykh Nazim became one of the most ardent critics of Wahhabism.
Möge Gott sich seiner erbarmen und Scheich Nazım seinen Platz im Paradies gewähren. Amin.
Von Gott kommen wir und zu Ihm kehren wir zurück.
