About Me!

I am a humble and meek seeker of the path of Truth, i.e. Tasawwuf, or Sufism in English. I follow the Naqshbandi method of Sufism, the most blessed, whose lineage goes to the greatest of humans after prophets, Sayyidina Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with him.

This blog is dedicated to the history and teachings of the great Shaykhs of the noble path of Naqshbandi sufi order, specially the later Shaykhs.

Many of my articles contain translations from authentic texts. Considering my poor skills in English writing, please ignore any mistakes and attribute them to me rather than the actual author. I will be highly thankful if you can inform me about such mistakes so they can be corrected.

All the content presented in this blog is original except mentioned explicitly, and all copyrights are reserved with me. The content is free to be copied, under the condition that the name of author (me) and the website (www.maktabah.org) must be mentioned.

If Allah has created a wish in you to seek His Nearness and you want to learn the Naqshbandi tariqah, you can seek it from my shaykh and master Khwaja Muhammad Tahir Bakhshi Naqshbandi Mujaddidi, who is the greatest Naqshbandi master in the world today. For any other information about the masters of this noble tariqah, please contact me through email.

    Dear brother first of all i must appreciate your excellent research work in this website and you have made clear many historical mis conceptions , especially when it comes to Hazrat Fazal Ali Qureshi (r.a) .
    Now coming to my question straightaway, I live in Lahore and want to learn Qalbi Zikr. Now since khawaja Mohammad Tahir alias Sajan sain lives in sindh and its very dificult for me to get myself benefited from his blessed company. So would you recommend or advice me any of his Khalifa in Lahore or nearby.
    And also would you sugest any books of the Silsilah Aliya which would enhance my knowledge regarding tasawuf and Silsialh.
    Thanking you in advance in anticipation of your early reply.

    Salaams Dear brother,

    My name is Samer and i am from Singapore. I want to take initiation in this path as my spiritual thirst is overpowering me. Please help me. I am looking for a path built on the edfice of Sharia and Sunnah which will never move a hair’s breath away from it. I have read about imam rabbani and his staunchness in shariah and sunnah and would love to follow on his footsteps.

    In Singapore there are many tarqahs but with strange beliefs and laxing in Shariah. Pirism is bordering at shirk and so on. That’s where I read about Sheik Ahmad Sirhindi. Kindly guide me in this path.

    Alhamdulillaah! Wonderful site. i am doing some research in English (in a limited scope) on the subject of Tasawwuuf. i embrace all the Sufi turuuq that unite all Muslims in the Blessed Rasuul’s way. i would love to get in touch with some brothers with whom i can share some interesting subjects of mutual interest. i am a volunteer social worker and a voracious collecter and reader of books, especially Islamics.

    Ho scoperto questo blog per caso e grazie a Dio sono contento, è meraviglioso, pieno di informazioni , specie per noi occidentali che non abbiamo la possibilità di poter avere contatti diretti con Pir qualificati.
    Sono un murid italiano affliliato alla Naqshibandi in Italia dal 2010.
    Abito in sardegna, un’isola nel mediterraneo.
    Spero di poter continuare a seguire, con l’aiuto di Dio, le indicazioni riportate nel vostro sito. E spero di poter avere contatti se possibile con maestri della Mujaididi.
