Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS)
Anyone who sees Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS) for the first time has never seen anyone like him before & never sees anyone like him again. He was a murid (a novice committed to spiritual enlightenment) to his murshid (spiritual guide), Grandshaykh Abdullah ad-Daghestani (QS), for over 40 years.
When Grandshaykh (QS) left this physical world, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS) became his successor & The 40th Master Of The Naqshbandi Golden Chain.

As the leader of the Sufi Naqshbandi Tariqah, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS) devoted his life to teaching people about Islam, Sufism (Islamic Spirituality) & the importance of loving Allah Almighty (SWT) & His Beloved Messenger, The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He travelled from East to West spreading the message of Islam with his devoted & loving wife, Hajjah Amina Adil (QS), by his side. She was a celebrated & much-loved Islamic scholar in her own right, who taught both ladies & gentlemen across the globe about the beauty of Islam with her kind & gentle ways up until her death on the 16th of November 2004.

Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (QS) left a legacy of many sohbets (spiritual conversation) faithfully documented by his murids in books, audios & videos, as a mercy to the world to guide people to The Beautiful Way. Hajjah Amina Adil (QS) also left one of the most important and celebrated books in Islamic literature (Muhammad (PBUH) : The Messenger Of Islam) along with many sohbets & Islamic children's books.
They are both buried in Lefke, Northern Cyprus & thousands of people each year visit their graves.
