Surrender

 Surrender

A follower once said to his shaykh, ‘O my shaykh, how am I going to surrender to you. Let me surrender to you as a dead person surrenders!’ The shaykh said, ‘No, even a dead person does not surrender completely. In our Sufi Order we do not accept the surrender of a dead person for he still has a will. According to all religions, when God takes the soul away, the dead one still sees and hears and feels everything, but he cannot open his eyes or speak. That power is taken away. I want the surrender of tree-leaves in autumn. When they fall the wind carries them. Wherever the wind carries them, the leaves will never say anything. Go East. Go West. Go North. Go South. It might be that the leaf falls into the fire and is burnt, but it will not say anything. I want such surrender. If you reach such a level, we accept you in our Way. (Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q), via eshaykh.com)

The Responsibility Of The Shaykh

The Responsibility Of The Shaykh

In Salaat an-Najaat, the responsibility of the Shaykh is to take away all the sins of the mureeds and present them clean to the Prophet (s). Grandshaykh Abdullah Faiz Ad Daghestani (q) used to say, “All mureeds pass before me one-by-one in five minutes and I take all their difficulties on me, and I present them to the Prophet (s).” This secret was passed to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (q) through his arm when Grandshaykh (q) was in the hospital; he held Shaykh Nazim’s arm and poured everything from his heart into him, after which we were given permission to enter the room.
