The Importance of Having a Shaykh

Bismi’llah ar-Rahman, ar-Rahim
In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

Walking the Sufi Path of Love is a special endeavor. You cannot reach Allah just by reading a book or thinking about walking the path. You can’t even do it by yourself.

Listen to what the Shaykh says in the Sufi text: Music of the Soul.

“You cannot reach these thing from the tongue (discussing or talking about it) or just by opening a book and reading (reading, even though good isn’t enough). It is necessary to follow the family of God, who knows how to ride in the saddle of the horse and who knows how to sail in the ship which crosses all the seas. This ship, the ship of the family of God, looks exactly like the ship of Noah. It is sea worthy in the ocean of the truths of God and this sea is so deep. It is not any traveler who can guide this ship, the ship of God. He must know all the secrets”

The Shaykh has the knowledge you need. He can direct you and helps to move you down the Path of Love.

The knowledge of Sufism, Tassawuf, is to clean your heart so that it can become the house of Your Lord. A Sufi truism says that Allah has related: “Neither my heavens nor my earth contain Me. But the heart of my faithful believer contains Me.”

Your Shaykh is the one to help guide you to Allah.

Our Shaykh, Shaykh Muhammad bin Yahya al- Ninowy can help you. He is the guide who can help lead you to God.

We invite you to meet Shaykh Ninowy and begin walking the Sufi Path of Love.
