  1. Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim As salam alaikum Anyone can attend a meeting of zikr and hear a sohbet / battan / dars or speech at a dergah. But within the people attending it there are degress of closeness. A formal bayat is given only to someone willing to be muslim, even if bayah for mere barakah purposes may be given by someone here or there to a non muslim. Yet the bayat itself is for muslims. And the bayat is aligning with a silsila which, besides reaching sayyidina Ali (as) through Imam Jafar as Sadiq (as) reaches primarily to Sayyidina Abu bakr as Siddiq (ra), acknowledging him as the original Imam of the tariqa. So there are thousands who can attend, many hundreds who can practice, a few hundreds who try to keep closer contact with the shaykh or his representative, and some whithin them who try to be in contact with the proper requirements. A murid in the last sense is someone who follows the path of his shaykh, puts his spiritual issues in the hands of such wali and has developed real love (not mere emotional love but supportive and acting love) to his shaykh. So how few are real murids! I whish I can be one of them.
  2. Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim As salam alaikum Does any one know where I can find a beautiful dua mentioning or seeking within it the intercession of the twelve aimmah as way of strengthening the dua to Allah? And also where I can find a extensive list of the titles of Sayyidina Imam Ali (as)? Thanks
  3. Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim. For understanding Maulana Shaykh Nazim we have hundreds of his sohbets or bayans and much more ways to know his teachings. Taking a drop of a drop of some of his words in a matter clearly particular by someone who is self admittedly not well acquainted with hsi teachings may result in whatever, such as thinking he endorses tyrants. You would be surprised to find many of his sohbets dennouncing those same tyrants that you think he was supporting, as well as dennouncing so many things the western crusaders want or did against Islam. A sohbet is never a book or an article, but something that comes about to be in the middle of a specific circumstance, as any murid knows and knowledge of sohbets does not merely come with: well, I'll take one in a thorny issue and read and that's it, not at all! Not even under mere semiotic and or linguistic patrons of understanding, much less in a language specifically made to mean and to make effect upon those hearing it in the face to face moment of the day when it is spoken (a sohbet). Don't forget also that in the many years of his life, many people may have well shown a specific history or record of things that the Shaykh may be aware (tariqa history, tariqa politics). So believe me, your 'understanding' of him through such a clearly extremeley poor way is leading you to a complete false idea of him. So to your surprise, let it be known that such words were clearly a sohbet composed of teachings (as all do) as well as with a masterful irony of Maulana Shaykh Nazim -in his very particular and vivid use of language known to us- made to the mockery of some of his most stupid western murids coming to visit him with a local leader that was since long ago trying to please western people and secularist antimuslim powers in US and Europe under the name of Shaykh Nazim (betraying him in the process) in a matter that has to do a lot with tariqa politics. Shaykh Nazim did not teach that they are other than what they are: bush and blair mere kafir tyrants parte of of the new crusaders against Islam in our times.
