Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
No one can replace Sahibul Saif Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi in my life.
No one is there like him, sometimes he takes the color of Imam Ali (A.S), sometimes he appear to be like Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Q.S), he is mighty like Nabi Musa (A.S) in his adherence to the Laws of Allah, his wisdom is like of Nabi Isa alaihissalam and his Path is the Path of Nabi Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam.
He is the Quran, he is the Gospel he is the Torah and he is the Psalm.Whoever submit to Shaykh Abdul Kerim will not lack wisdom and will not die except as a Muslim and Mumin!
And I invite you to Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi Ar-Rabbani (Q.S)- the Hidden Pole (Qutub) and he is the living Shaykh, because his Fayd (Spiritual Flood) never ends.
Because all Grand Shaykhs has chosen him, Prophet Muhammad alaihiswalathu wa salam has chosen him, Allah has chosen him.

The Night When he left this world,I was weeping and lying down on the floor downstairs, as there was a female guest in my room upstairs, friend of my wife. Being tired, I fell into sleep sometime, while weeping, Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) called me to his presence. I saw myself appearing near Al Gaus Al Rabbani Sultanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S), I saw a seat prepared for me next to Mawlana Shaykh, in his right hand. I was standing in front of Mawlana. So Mawlana asked me to sit in that sit, I was afraid as I am a young man, weak and quite crazy and spontaneous in the age of 28 (in 2012) to sit next to Sultanul Awliya. I could only think of lay my head down in his feet. But they pulled me to sit in that chair. I sit there. Then I do not know from where, Mawlana Shaykh got a White Turban tied on a green Taj (Cap) put it on my head and said: “You must continue the way of Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi and Osmanli Naqshbandi Haqqani Tariqah”. As soon as he put that “Turban” on my head, something like a Bearable force descend on my chest and entered into my heart and lungs. That disturbed my breath in the sleep and in shock I Suddenly awake with a deep breath. (I am not an admirer of white Turban, my color is Green, no color is beloved to me than Green Color)

I was doing whatever I have been doing for the tariqah since November 2006, even before I contacted any Shaykhs. I used to have a few pages in Orkut.com in 2006, then in Facebook later in 2008. But when I made Baya online in 2007 from the website of a Khalifa who is the son in Law of Mawlana. I was then guided to Sahibul Saif Shaykh Abdul Kerim’s Jamath in the last months of 2007 . In 2008 I got an opportunity to speak to Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (Q.S) on Phone when I was in Qatar, from a brother’s house, took Bayat from Shaykh Abdul Kerim on phone.
In 2009, July 30-August 3 Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (Q.S) came to Kerala and stayed with us, and initiated all of us into Osmanli Naqshabandi Tariqah. In 2009 Ramadan, a month after he left to Osmanli Naksibendi Dergah, New York, my friend who is a teacher of Arabic and Usthad, asked me to call Shaykh Abdul Kerim to ask about giving Bayat to some people who live in the sea side, fishermen. In that day morning in Ramadan, Shaykh Abdul Kerim gave me and the Usthad (“You and Alikkoya can give Baya on behalf of me”) permission to initiate people to tariqah and teach them the way and Zikr.

After Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) left this world in 2014, one time I was called to his Spiritual presence, he was sitting on a big throne seven or eight meter above me before me. He instructed me by saying that:”Shaykh Abdul Kerim’s way should continue as it is and he raised his thumbs up, in return to his words, I raised up my thumbs to him with takbeer.

Alhamdulillah, we are still continuing the Order of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S), and even if the whole world desert me for going on this way, I am saying good bye to the world and it’s people. Because this way is not to please the world or people of the world.

Yes, I like humor, smiling, laughing, joking, sleeping, eating, drinking, hosting, visiting etc, but when it comes about upholding this Path,representing Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (Q.S) and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) before Allah, before the Angels, before the Prophets, before the Grand Shaykh, I am very steady by the grace of Allah.
Ah, you think, “representing Shaykh Mawlana and Shaykh Abdul Kerim and Tariqah” is to represent them among the people of this world (believers and unbelievers) and among the general public?
So many Khalifas and Representatives of many Shaykhs, representing their Shaykhs and their Tariqah in that way!
But in our Path it is not just to Represent my Shaykhs in this world, We are in a fellowship with those in whose presence we represent this Path and our Shaykhs.
Alhamdulillah, Wa Shukr Allah, May Allah help me and help other representatives of Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (Q.S) and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) in the Osmanli Naksibendi Tariqah to represent our Shaykhs in the best and most suitable manner.
Alhamdulillah, Wa Shukr Allah, May Allah help me and help other representatives of Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi (Q.S) and Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al Haqqani (Q.S) in the Osmanli Naksibendi Tariqah to represent our Shaykhs in the best and most suitable manner.

May Allah Subhana Wa Tala raise the stations of the Representatives of Sahibul Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi Ar-Rabbani (Q.S) and give them all provisions to continue the work for Islam and Tariqah,ameen. May all of them reach in the station of “Perfect Guides” (Shaykh of Tarbiyath) and may our Osmanli Naksibendi Tree grow and spread east to west north to South,and in the heavens and on the earth ameen Fatiha..ameen
