AQD015E: The Naqshabandi Cult

Bismillah wal-hamdulillah wa-salatu wa-salam 'ala Rasulillah, amma ba'd.

Much has been discussed in the Malay media regarding deviant teachings (ajaran sesat). As the local Muslim community struggles with their continued existence, the religious authorities has responded with a reassurance that action will be taken when complaints are submitted.

The Naqshanbandi group has for many years thrived in the Malay peninsular. However, with more learned scholars in our region, many have begun to recognize the group as a deviationist cult that stray from the straight path of the Deen.

The religious authorities in Malaysia, JAKIM, since the year 2000, had declared the Naqshabandi as a deviant cult.

It is imperative that individuals within the local Muslim community, as well as Muslim bodies, urge the local authorities to act upon the regular visits of the deviant cult leaders on our shores.

An article that lists 19 deviant statements of some of the key figures of this cult may be found on here - "Observations on Hisham Kabbani and GF Haddad's Methodology and Creed"

Below is another article that lists deviant statements from an article entitled "Meded: Asking Support from Grandsheikh" by the cult's spiritual leader, Nazim al-Haqqani.


Shirk In The Naqshabandi Sufi Tareeqah

The article, "Meded - Asking Support From Grandsheikh", contains several jaahilee concepts, among which:

- Du`aa to Allah to derive from the Grandsheikh (Ad-Daghistani) from his spiritual care even from the grave.

- "We derive our spiritual power from his heart center."

- "the breaths of Allah¹s Saints give life to their followers, to their spiritual sons and daughters."

- "The real Grandsheikh always keeps a watchful eye on his followers" [even if passed away]

- Claim that to stand firmly in the face of our enemies: the lower self, Satan, vain desires and worldliness, "we need his support," and that "without such a strong support a person will be vanquished."

- Their saying, "Therefore, we seek our Grandsheikh¹s support by saying: "Meded Ya Sayyidi", "Support, oh my Master." "You must call upon your Grandsheikh in such a manner when you are in need of support, then that support may reach you."

- Their claim that guidance reaches to our hearts through the Saints.

- Their saying, "you must look for the support of the Saints in a Universe in which you are totally weak."

This article is useful for explaining how some people fall in shirk in all aspects of Tauheed.

Shirk in Tauheed ur-Ruboobeeyah:

Their claim that the Grandsheikh can bring good fortune or remove calamities; he can govern the affairs of this world and he is believed to have power and influence besides Allaah, or that Allaah creates creations that can cause harm and benefit to His creatures. The Grandsheikh is one upon whom we are dependent for guidance and spiritual strength.

Shirk in Tauheed ul-`Ibaadah:

Directing one¹s acts of worship, such as du`aa (supplication), seeking help, tawakkul (trust and reliance), and hope for good fortune to other than Allaah.

Shirk in Tauheed ul-Asmaa'i was-Sifaat:

Attributing divine power to Allaah¹s creation. Attributing to man the power to keep a watchful eye on his followers, whether alive or dead, the power and ability of guiding people¹s hearts that belongs to Allah alone, and ability to answer prayers of Allaah¹s creation and provide them with aid.
