Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani is authorised by Mawlana Shaykh Abdullah Al-Daghestani and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani, he is both a scholar (alim) of Islam and an authorised murshid (guide/shaykh) in the Naqshbandi tariqat.
I advise people to respect people, actually all people, everyone. Allah loves those who respect people. But it’s especially important to respect those whom Allah loves, those who are authorised teachers with ijaza (permission/authorisation). This is vitally important to those in tariqat…
If you are in tariqat, you must respect those who your Shaykh loves and authorised, or what are you doing in tariqat if you are not listening to and respecting your shaykh’s advice and teachings? If you go against those who your shaykh loves, you are going against your shaykh!
Most shaykhs usually have more than one inheritors… this is especially true the bigger the shaykh.
Please keep respect and good adab (manners), and don’t be among those who spread fitnah.
May Allah forgive and bless us all.
