(MAWLANA SHAYKH NAZIM GIVING BAY'AH TO ABAH ANOM INTO TARIQAT NAQSHBANDI-HAQQANI)

FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 2008



Age of human beings is the secret of ALLAH s.w.t.Surely,with more
worshipping to ALLAH and doing good and praised deeds. Age does not have to be long as long as it is full of blessings(barakah). At Suryalaya Village, Tasikmalaya, Jawa Barat, lives one big Ulama', the present murshid of Tariqat Qadiriyya-Naqshbandiyya, nearly reaching 100 years old, Shaykh Ahmad Sohibul Wafa' Tajul Arifin aka Abah Anom, born in 1915. He is also the main figure of Pesantren Suryalaya. He is not just a scholar but also a big Saint of ALLAH. He is considered as one of the Qutub of the Asian Region. Despite his old age, he still serve his guests as normal. Abah Anom is unable to move his hand or feet due to intense pain. He cannot move his head or tongue except rarely. He is not even able to smile. Even that, seeing his presence is sufficient with him carrying the light of Muhammad s.a.w. Even though in his current state, this in no way hampers his ability to oversee the running of the Tariqah's affair and various educational institutes it manages not only in Suryalaya but throughout Indonesia. Abah Anom is the high-level authority who issues all essential directives on operational matters and plans for the continued development of these institutions. By nature, he is a quiet man. Granting audience to his murids is still a daily affair, which Abah Anom treasures.

In 5 May 2001,the 40th Grandmaster of Tariqah
Naqshbandi-Haqqani, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani visited Abah
Anom. Abah Anom is 10 years older than Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. Upon
entry, Shaykh Nazim kissed Abah Anom's hands and smiled. After
dinner, Shaykh Nazim gave a talk in which told the people, "Don't think
Abah Anom is sleeping, he is sending to my heart what to say to
you. "Later, Abah Anom signaled that he wanted to make a Du'a
,something he rarely does. Tears of Joy came down upon hearing his
voice the first time in many years. His murids come from
Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Truly He is a Great Saint of
ALLAH. Before leaving, Shaykh Nazim prayed 2 rak'ats after which he went to Abah Anom and gave him Bay'at into Tariqat Naqshbandi-Haqqani.
