Moulana Sheikh Nazim was born in Larnaka, Nothern Cyprus in
    the year 1922 on the 21st day of April.  He was the mureed and
    follower of the Great Sultan ul Awliya Sheikh Abdullah Faiz
    Daghistani who was also the Khatm ul Awliya or the Seal of
    Saints.  After the passing away of Sheikh Abdullah in the year
    1972 Moulana Sheikh Nazim became the Grandsheikh of the
    Naqshabandi Tariqa.  He is now living in Nothern Cyprus in
    Lefke and he is 89 years old.  He is the last Grandsheikh of the
    Most Distinguished Naqshabandi Tariqa.  

    As the Grandmaster of Sufism and as the Grandsheikh of the
    Naqshabandi Tariqa, Moulana Sheikh Nazim initiates his
    followers into the Most Distinguished Naqshabandi Sufi Order.
    This is what is meant by taking Bayyath. When the follower
    takes Bayyath, he has then begun his journey to the Divine
    Presence. Moulana Sheikh Nazim will then be with him always
    and will gradually guide that follower to the Divine Presence.
    According to the capacity and apptitude of the follower
    Moulana Sheikh Nazim will give him Spiritual Advancement,
    Spiritual Ranks and Spiritual Stations.

    When the Eye of the Heart is opened up and Spiritual Unveiling
    takes place, the follower will experience so many different
    Spiritual States.  For a description of the Spiritual Experiences,
    read in this website -
    The goal of the follower in following Moulana Sheikh Nazim is
    to enter into the Unity Oceans of Allah Almighty. Like a drop of
    water that loses its identity when it falls into the Ocean, and
    becomes the Ocean itself, the follower shall be made by
    Moulana Sheikh Nazim to reach to the Unity Oceans of Allah
    Almighty.

    It is at this point, when he reaches to the Unity Oceans, that the
    follower fulfills his purpose in being created, by becoming the
    Deputy of Allah Almighty on Earth, where he shall represent
    Allah Almighty throughout the entire Universe. This is the goal
    of Sufism and all Religions.

    What is important from Moulana Sheikh Nazim's point of view
    about a new follower is for that follower to have a good heart
    and to try to sincerely follow Moulana Sheik Nazim with love.  
    This is far more important than the background from which
    such follower comes.  The attribute of humbleness in a new
    follower is one of the greatest assets that one could have for
    quick spiritual advancement.

    Moulana Sheikh Nazim is the Master and Guide par excellence

    reach to the Divine Presence.
