Spiritual (Uwaisi) Lineage of Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani

A Statement of Clarification from Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani, regarding his authorization and spiritual lineage.


Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Al Quran 25:7 Yet they say: What sort of apostle is this [man] who eats food [like all other mortals] and goes about in the market places? Why has not an angel [visibly] been sent down unto him, to act as a warner together with him?”

And We did not send before you, [O Muhammad], any of the messengers except that they ate food and walked in the markets. And We have made some of you [people] as trial for others – will you have patience? And ever is your Lord, Seeing. (Al Quran 25:20)

Prophets and their inheritors, are chosen from heavens, it is not according to the criterion of formal qualifications from the institutions they are chosen or appointed!.

“Many rivers are here, which are originated from different locations and altitudes.But our river originate from Almighty God and returns to Almighty. Those rivers have to vanish in our river before even thinking to enter in the Divine presence.” Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani (16 Augutst 2015)

So when Sahibul Saif came to our house,  after Zikr (Saturday,  Sahaban 10, 2009 AD), myself and Alikkoya Ustadh sat at the feet of Sahibul Saif , everyone had different needs , I said to Shaykh EFENDI,  I don’t need any of this things they are asking you, give me your love, and Allah and His Messenger a.s .

Later, Seyh Abdul Kerim Efendi,  asked us to lift him up from the chair,  we four or five of them tried again and again. I thought I would get back pain,  because I took Shaykh’s challenge to lift him up from the chair , but we could not. We accept the defeat and Then Seyh Efendi,  got up himself.

Seyh Andul Kerim Efendi, one time said to me , when some buddies making trouble aroud 2011-2012 , he said: ” if they cause you any trouble, tell them to talk to me,  don’t try to correct them, they will attack you”.

I asked Sahibul Saif : where should we build a dergah here? , please show me a place?

Seyh Efendi said: find yourself a place and build dergah in it.

But It has been inspired me to build a place  next to our house.  

But later  another inspiration overook me , after seeing the behaviors of those who are in the possession of dergahs built with bricks and woods around the world. It has been inspired to my heart: “I must build dergah in my heart. Dergah of all the prophets and saints.  So that wherever I am , there is the dergah . And wherever those who come to me and make baya into the way of Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibirisi q.s and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani q.s,  then their hearts must too become a Dergah .

But I knew that, I asked a big thing,  may be I am not worthy of such a blessings. But they gave me some prophets and saints to my heart and gave me a place of honour between Sayyidinaa Noah a.s and Gause Al Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al-Jilani (q.s).

That’s my spiritual Dergah forever , and all creations may renew their Bayat with me , those on earth and those in the Heavens, and my Bayat in the innermost Dergah Is  the Bayat of Hazret Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s) for this saying in Hadith.

The Bayah is to Renew this declaration of Nabi alaihiswalathu wa Salam.

Jami` at-Tirmidhi, Chapters on Virtues, Hadith

كتاب المناقب عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم49   Chapters on Virtues

Narrated Abu Sarihah, or Zaid bin Arqam – Shu’bah had doubt:

from the Prophet (ﷺ): “For whomever I am his Mawla then ‘Ali is his Mawla.”

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ بَشَّارٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ كُهَيْلٍ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا الطُّفَيْلِ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَبِي سَرِيْحَةَ، أَوْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَرْقَمَ شَكَّ شُعْبَةُ – عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ كُنْتُ مَوْلاَهُ فَعَلِيٌّ مَوْلاَهُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ غَرِيبٌ ‏.‏ وَقَدْ رَوَى شُعْبَةُ هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ عَنْ مَيْمُونٍ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَرْقَمَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏ وَأَبُو سَرِيحَةَ هُوَ حُذَيْفَةُ بْنُ أَسِيدٍ صَاحِبُ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏

Grade:  Sahih (Darussalam)

English translation  : Vol. 1, Book 46, Hadith 3713

Arabic reference  : Book 49, Hadith 4078

This is not a boast or lie.

Let those who have  heavenly wisdom attest it and conform to it. And others,  let them follow their own ego,  and leave them in their own ways, don’t argue with them.  The Light of the LORD said to me!

Those accept us and the  truth which is with us,.they are in safety, but those who reject and deny the truth that is given to me, then look at how far they have gone and how and where is their end!

The Spiritual Struggle:

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

The easy experience privilege  in the spiritual way and Islam is to always have the blessings of being in a group of followers ,.who are helpers and protectors of each other. 

But in this way, I have been given the most difficult experiences and test. To be alone without a  physical Jamath for over 12 years and to struggle with lot of worldly situations alone ,all these times. But my Shaykh stood with me always , in my success and in my failure. He didn’t blame me.  I received the Divine Support , and Support of the Prophets,  namely Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa Salam,  Isa a.s , Yahya a.s and Musa a.s and Noah a.s and Grand Shaykhs,  Mawlana Shaykh Nazim q.s , Gause Al Azam  q.s and Sultanul Awliya Ahmad Kabir ar-Rifai q.s .

And worldly help, mostly through local Christians and non-practicing Muslims . Not from those who think they are very holy imams or Shaykhs. 

Because the Mission and Work is , the declaration of “Rahmatan Lil alameen “.

Not just to be  a leader for a cosy group or sect. But to be a  servant of the LORD for His Creation,  for the lost sheep and for the wounded horses and for the abandoned cows and for the fallen trees, for birds whose wings are broken.

Group dynamics,  it is easy and comfortable for the ego, that’s why everyone want to party , everyone want to join some groups, whether spiritual of political. But try the way I struggled,  and see how things are going with you. Prove your love for Islam , Naqshbandi way and Shaykhs , by being in my situations, then you may come and criticize and slander.

One time I saw Musa a.s preaching in a town and the whole world appeared like his time. 

So I went to see him, people are traveling on chariots rode by bulls and on horses . But I saw Almighty enabled me to fly above them in Zikr.

Then I reached in the place where Musa a.s is delivering a sermon , calling people to Allah Almighty.

I stood in the air , next to a huge city gate . And looking at him from the side . And my heart saying, Alhamdulillah,  at least now Musa a.s is here speaking for Allah , but I didn’t show up myself to him,  in fear that if he sees.me   his speech would be interrupted and it is more important for me to see He Serve Allah Almighty there to give advise to that large crowd there, than he sees me and come to me to welcome and spend time with me.

So with happiness and filled heart , I returned flying back . And Allah Almighty granted me supersonic speed for my return.  When I went it was like flying a normal plane , but returning was like rocket speed.  I think Allah Almighty was happy with the decision my soul  had taken  regarding his beloved servant,  our Master Sayyidina Musa a.s .

This are not some school boy dreams to forget or ignore.  It has been remembered every day or week or month.  It is reminded with the Verses in the Book of Allah. Everything is connected to the Book of Allah.

And it is a foolish idea to mess around with Musa a.s and those who are closely related to Musa a.s in spirit and truth.

Sahih al-Bukhari 1339 Narrated Abu Huraira (ra): The angel of death was sent to Moses and when he went to him, Moses slapped him severely, spoiling one of his eyes. The angel went back to his Lord, and said, “You sent me to a slave who does not want to die.” Allah restored his eye and said, “Go back and tell him (i.e. Moses) to place his hand over the back of an ox, for he will be allowed to live for a number of years equal to the number of hairs coming under his hand.” (So the angel came to him and told him the same). Then Moses asked, “O my Lord! What will be then?” He said, “Death will be then.” He said, “(Let it be) now.” He asked Allah that He bring him near the Sacred Land at a distance of a stone’s throw. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) said, “Were I there I would show you the grave of Moses by the way near the red sand hill.”


Naqshbandi Murid:   …..

Can you tell me about the dream you had mentioned earlier , about seeing the Prophet.  Can you explain me a bit more ?




بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

[16/08/2021] Jouhar Ali: Anyway ,  first time, I saw Nabi a.s giving me the call of Tawhid in an an association that appears to be from mothers home.

It is there I saw the three Khulafa ar-Rashideen for the first time,  then the vision of the Prophet a.s

Then next time i saw Nabi a.s making me recite some special salawat from his own spirituality (not from books)

When I am in the UK: And it is this time I saw Sahaba for the second time then Nabi a.s

Same pattern as the first time .

 I hope this is sufficient information

[16/08, 12:25] Jouhar Ali: The first one was in 2008 0r 2009.

Nabi alaihiswalathu wa Salam in a majlis wearing white dress and white turban , I am in the back yard of mothers house with local people ….but the association is taking place in the courtyard of the house.  And I was called to the presence of the Prophet a.s and mighty ones sitting around Nabi a.s .

They called me, something like an announcement,  , if I say it in English:  ” is there anyone who is coming forward to speak”. Suddenly I felt someone pushing me to get up and walk to the Majlis  when I sit behind the house which is facing  eastward and the majlis is facing  the west  , front sitting area of the house of my mother facing West.  Which is now renovating by my uncle .. so when you walk to my mother’s house,  you will walk from west to east. But I am called called from East to West , to speak .

So i stood next to the Prophet a.s , I could not imagine if it is someone else .

So he asked me , “what do you know”?

I said: I do not know anything,  but I try to remember what I learned from this world.

Then I said, “I have studied in high school and higher secondary,  went to Madrassa for seven years,  studied some Arabic as second language till College (University UG level I meant by that studying formal education).

Then all the people in the majlis are watching and I am getting more nervous.  My worldly experience and qualifications never good for anything  and I am about to shiver .

Actually when I say this to you now, I am shaking here..

Then I said, “I don’t know anything,  but I can speak about Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala.”

 He said, “then speak …”

Then I started speaking,  something like this, Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Jalwa ul asma ul husna wa Fatah ul Islam and spoken so loudly some glorification of Allah.

All of the Majlis listened in full attention, fear and respect.

The he said:  “la ilaaha illa Allah…”

Again he said: ” la ilaha illa Allah..”

But all the people around him and in the association sitting in various ranks,  are very silent in fear and obedience.  I got more nervous,  because no one is responding to the saying la ilaha illa Allah…

Suddenly,  I said in a loud voice: Muhammad Rasoolullah

And I heard my loud voice and it made me wake up.

At that time I had taken only online bayat from another khalifa of mawlana Shaykh and lying down on the floor in a palm leaf like synthetic mat , and not sleeping in the cushion mattress!.. because  I fell there after my prayer and slept , so then when wake up and prayed Tahajjud.

It put tears in me now , so it was not in 2008, it was in 2007 around August , 2 years before Sahibul Saif arrived and before I went to Qatar and renewed my bayat with Sahibul Saif in 2008 March ..

[16/08] Naqshbandi Murid: Can you tell about Al Mahdi dream?

[16/08] Jouhar Ali: Yes I saw him in the same place mother’s home,  and Isa a.s as well arriving there , but I don’t remember Mahdi face.

[16/08] Naqshbandi Murid: How did you give bay’a? .Only dreamt him once?

That’s a blessed house of your mother.

[16/08, 12:46] Jouhar Ali: Thrice,  Last one appeard to be bayat to Mahdi a.s , next one we are meeting at mother’s house and waiting for Isa a.s

I also saw sahibul saif taking  rest on a leaning back style long chair in mother’s house.

Unfortunately I couldn’t not take him there,  I should have , I was not very conscious about people or surrounding when seyh was there .

And in 2012, when Sahibul Saif veiled from this world,  in the same night,   a vision of Mawlana Shaykh took place in the Tahajjud time,  I was called to the presence of Mawlana and he put a white turban on my head and gave command saying:  “You must continue the work of Shaykh Abdul Kerim and Osmanli Naksibendi Tarikat (in exact words).

[16/08, 12:57] Naqshbandi Murid: What a blessing to have a family that follows a tariqa.

[16/08, 12:58] Jouhar Ali: Allah’s Mercy and blessings,  not our birthright

It’s good that you asked me about that dreams. It revitalized me and reminded me of the duties.  Because some people in the tarikat has been making every  efforts to put down my works , by constantly criticizing and judging me and the works i do. Those who constantly put negativity and annoyance,  while claiming to love me and helping me!.

[16/08] Naqshbandi Murid: Why do they do that?

[16/08] Jouhar Ali: I don’t know,  and don’t ask them,  they may demonize and slander you!

So those who have a problem with me or my words or my works,  let them intercede with the Prophet a.s or Grand Shaykhs and clarify their issues concerning me, if they are in higher Stations and have power and authority. 

It is unfair to target someone who is not doing any harm to you , but rather I am praying for you and praying for everyone to reach in higher Stations of faith and spirituality.

Everyone talk about Karbala with crocodile tears   because it has also become a custom,  Karbala is present everyday,  and it is good for everyone to know which Camp of Karbala they are in , which camp of Badr they are in and so on and so on!

A Message to those who reject the Spiritual Lineage of Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

It hurts me very badly,  when someone i have loved so dearly , is not willing to understand my words, and he says, I am blind. But he cannot explain which of this words are from a blind heart, if one person is blind himself alone and 9 other non-blind persons put obstacles on the blind, who do you defend? . The blind one or the 7-9 non-blind?

Or if 7 blind men together turn themselves inappropriately,  and the one blind is helpless coming to a leader against theb7 blind people.  Who do the leader defend, the seven  blind or the one blind?

Sometimes,  I am inspired with examples,  but most times I am inspired with bitter doctrines!

Welcome to the justice of Islam!

Welcome to 21st century spirituality!

Welcome to distorted truths!

“And if I am blind (unfit), then they (those who reject my spriitual lineage) should go ahead and make   a statement (a Fatwa) against me immediately without any hesitation,  and say, Jounar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani does not represent this way, Naqshbandi Way, in  any way, and warn people about me .”

This is fair, when you do it,  then your claims against me are true and people have a clarity.

And I don’t mind,  you may go ahead, all of those who say they are Shaykhs of tarikats, but you must fear Allah’ alone . See how things will go ahead after that…. and I am still happy , unaffected by all false judgments of this world.  And Allah And His Messenger alaihiswalathu wa Salam,  sufficient for me .

I  am not here to win followers for me or make me popular, my aim has always been to win followers for Naqshabandi Aliyah Tarikat and Islam (which is the way of Awliya) and popularize Al Haqq consciousness.

So I am unaffected and accepted by my LORD without a single follower.  Without needing a name or fame.

So go ahead , I am saying to all Shaykhs and imams of this times…

Through such examples   I am teaching you justice of Islam,  to everyone of you.  not only my  Justice, justice for you as well (for you to have a firm stand on your claim, or accept my words) , justice for everyone else in between us (to remove their confusion)

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

When Sahibul Saif was living on the surface of this earth , I was blessed to communicate with him almost every week. But not with any of his representatives there in America,  if I tried to they criticize me or cut off without having a positive conversation,  rather , they talk with a school boy tantrum mindset.  But I understand their state of mind and character and level of conduct,  so I have been very patient to this moment.  Because I am not here to desert or forsake anyone. I want them to pay attention to the words I am saying and reflect upon it according to the guidance of Islam and imams of the Tariqat!

So one time during a conversation with Sahibul Saif Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi q.s, he very seriously admonished me and said: “take only from Shaykh Mawlana ”  not from anyone else”. (Not exact words).

Therefore, when Mawlana Shaykh approved those ones to look after the Jamath of Shaykh Abdul Kerim q.s , I accepted it with further signs from Mawlana Shaykh q.s.

Another time , Before Sahibul Saif made his mast journey to Cyprus,  I called Seyh Efendi q.s and asked him: “what should I do when the major  fitnah and troubles of the end of times  emerge?”.

Seyh EFENDI,  said me : “go back to your homeland”

Because seyh Efendi wanted the way to continue in India under my leadership, and support the family and followers there.

Seyh EFENDI,  didn’t instruct me to follow anyone else,  apart from Mawlana Shaykn Nazim (q.s).

They speak about every principles and manners (Adab) and teach remind others , but they themselves forgot it in their own life?

This is detested by Allah Almighty in Quran Sura As-Saff, verse two and three!

And such attitudes and disobedience is counted as signs of hypocrisy in the Holy Traditions of the Prophet a.s

If it is still not clear and unbelievable,  then listen to Mawlana Shaykh’s sohbet or go to someone from ahlul sunnah  who is mastered in Arabic , who can read and explain to you the rules and regulations,  Imams of the tarikat has written about concerning following Shaykh Murhsid Al Kamil of the time , and learn from the main source,  if you do  not believe in my words.

And I have not lied or concealed anything into writings,  and you may invoke curse on the liars and deceivers,  whoever they are,  if you doubt that either me or someone else has deceived or lied to you. It is permissible in shariah to invoke curse of Allaah on the liars !

I am not invoking curse, because I deserve mercy for everyone , forgiveness and right guidance for everyone rather than their perishing.

Because,  I have seen personally so many people who opposed me and slandered me , gone crazy or perished , without even invoking or praying against them. And I don’t want to happen that to someone,  because I see they are Husbands or wives or father mother to someone.

So go ahead , you have choices,  either believe me and do what is right.

Or in doubt go to the scholars who have tasawsuf books which explains the laws of tarikat.

Or be arrogant and stubborn,  and invoke curse of God on the liars,  and disbelieve in my words and don’t verify my words and find yourself unprofitable in following a group that follows misguidance and deviation!

The choice is yours,  and there is no compulsion or hatred , everyone will find their way and destiny.  I am only a reminder !


A conversation of Jouhar Ali Naqshabandi Al-Hassani (Q.S) with Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (q.s) via telephone during Fajr time in India in Ramadan, 2009.

Jouhar Ali : Assalaamu alaikum Shaykh. Alikkoya Ustadh asked me to contact you today,  he says that there are some people in his work place (Kannur district) , who are local people, can’t reach to you to take Bayat. Alikkoya Usthad asking me how can they take Bayat.

Sahibul Saif Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi  q.s:  “You and Alikkoya Can Give Bayat on behalf of me”.

Jouhar Ali Naqshbandi Al-Hassani : yes ,thank you Shaykh,   I will inform him .

Shaykh EFENDI: Salam aleykum

Me: wa alaikumussalam

(Alikkoya Ustadh, who is my closest friend in the way, was a Khalifa of Qadri-Chisti order, he always persuade me follow their tariqa.  However,  after meeting with Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibirisi q.s, he renewed bayat with Sahibul Saif, I heard from my brother and another person who went to Hyderabad to meet Shaykh EFENDI,  that Alikkoya Master , has been going through episodes of Fana in Sahibul Saif, and he has been going through very heavy spiritual states.

Alikkoya Ustadh has been teaching tarikat and science of Tasawwsuf to highly learned scholars in Kerala as well as to others (According to their level) who took bayat to his previous Tariqat

Then Sahibul arrived in Kerala later in the last Thursday of 2009 July.  On Friday Seyh EFENDI visited Alikkoya Ustadh’s house after Juma Prayer ..Seyh EFENDI performed Zikr at his House, and I started weeping and vanishing in his recitation of Allah Allah Allah …

Later the day before he leave, Sahibul Saif revealed that we are descended from the blood-line of Imam Hasan Bin Ali (r.a).  Before he leave , seyh EFENDI instructed me to teach Zikr and Tarikat to my Father and brother. 

In 2011, someone whoe name is ,Syed Shehzad, who took bayat from me ,after i asked him to contact Seyh EFENDI,  and take Bayat from Sahibul Saif directly,  and i told him not to tell Shaykh that he took bayat from me. Because I wanted him to Renew bayat with Sahibul Saif personally.

So later he had called Shaykh EFENDI and had a conversation with Shaykh.  So I asked him about it , he said that he told Shaykh that he took bayat from me , so Shaykh said to him that it’s enough.

Again in 2011 end , some woman from London who has been long follower of Sahibul Saif,  who contacted me and asked to pray for her, she has been looking to remarry.  I told her increase salawat Nabi, she asked how much , I am according to my practice,  told her recite a million or something.  Later she called Sahibul Saif and told Shaykh that Jouhar Ali told me to recite so much salawat. Next day, when talked to Shaykh EFENDI on the phone,  Shaykh Efendi said: “I heard you told her to recite so much salawaat , don’t burden people too much, give them zikr according to what they can carry” (roughly written).


This is a very important point, those who are seeking truth, must listen to the words of the true defenders of the truth. Anyone can make claim that, they are the defenders of the truth. Everyone who took Bayat through me in the Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Sufi way of India, are connecting themselves to the living tree and through the living tree they are connecting to Sahibul Saif, Gause Al Azam, Imam Shah Naqshabandi and all other grand Shaykhs.  But those who had refused me and my words, look at how it had gone with them in the past, and learn and understand how will go with those who refuse me today.

I do not have to defend myself, or my words , i am not answerable to people, except for what benefit them and what concern them.  Allah Almighty Will defend me and His Cause He has bestowed upon me. The Quran gives examples. But those who fear and want to be in safety in this world and hereafter, then let them put their own ego down, humble themselves and come with manners and self discipline. As I always remind, it is a very foolish deed to underestimate me or what is given to me from the heavens!. You might be a Shaykh or scholar or Imam or a saint, but I remind you to understand the rights and duties Allah Almighty bestowed upon me through Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam, Sahibul Saif, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (q.s) and other grand Shaykhs. They all believed and accepted. But some of you reject and oppose, abuse and slander.

So understand that, it won’t be karbala, it will be like in the time of Musa (a.s), he is also standing my side, Isa a.s and Yahya a.s also stand my side , Hazre Gibril (a.s), Hazret Mikhail (a.s) and Hazret Azrail (a.s) also stand in support of me.  So it is good to investigate who are you trying to undermine and oppose.  Truth will fully manifest, whatever is revealed, I am writing and explaining you, I did not have an idea yesterday, what I write now today, 19/08/2021 17.00 GMT!

I speak to every nations and tribes, every religions and people, and to everyone who must renew their Bayat with Nabi a.s and recognise the right of Hz Ali (a.s) . I am not a leader or a a shaykh , who is created for one  group or for one place.

So we may all wake up and follow the word of truth and heavenly orders, orders.

wa salamun alal mursaleen

walhamdulillahi Rabbil alameen
