“When I was in Lefke in Cyprus during June 2002, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani asked me to edit some of his talks that he had given in Damascus and Lefke and to include any appropriate verses from the Qur’an and Prophetic Traditions where necessary … I was taken aback by the honour and confidence he had shown in me” – Shaykh Yusuf da Costa from the publication “Spiritual Discourses”
EXTRACTS FROM “SPIRITUAL DISCOURSES”
“Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!”
السلام و عليكم و رحمت الله وبركاتہ
You are invited to attend the blessed Naqshbandi Dhikr daily
In the holy Quran, verse 45 of Surah Al ‘Ankabūt, Allah (SWT) says ‘wala dhikrullahi akbar’, meaning ‘and the remembrance of Allah is the greatest’. In Bayhaqi it is narrated that Abd Allah ibn Umar (ra) said that the Prophet (SAWS) said that dhikr is the polish of the heart, and that the most calculated to rescue from Allah’s punishment is dhikr, even more so than jihād. In Bayhaqi, Hakim, Tabarani and a few others it is narrated that Jabir (ra) said that the Prophet (SAWS) encouraged participation in the gardens of paradise, which he (SAWS) described as being the gatherings of dhikrullah.It is on the basis of these Quranic and Prophetic injunctions that the Naqshbandi tariqah promotes the deen of Islam primarily through the medium of dhikr.
