Hasan Hilmi Afandi

The Last Letter of Sayfullah-Qadi to Hassan-Efendi

The Last Letter of Sayfullah-Qadi to Hassan-Efendi

Murshid of Naqshbandi and Shazali tariqas Shaykh Hassan-Efendi has noted down in his book Talkhis al-ma’arif: “The written heritage left by Shaykh Sayfullah-Qadi (1850-1919) contains a letter addressed to me. This is his farewell message he had sent to me before he died.” May Allah bestow upon us a better life, may His divine light shine upon the tomb of our Sayyid Sayfullah and may He make our deceased Sayyid the preparer of our way to the paradise.


Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi - a knower of the revealed and the concealed

To be entitled to fully estimate the meaning of such an outstanding personality as Shaykh Hassan-Afandi al-Kahibi, one should first exceed the latter in his knowledge.

Due to our scarce knowledge in comparison to that of the Shaykh and thus our unworthiness to write about him, we can merely mention some facts from his life in our striving to please Allah and His Messenger. In this article the least thing we can do is to tell about the great teachers and masters who nourished the knowledge and the character of Hassan-Afandi, to describe his spiritual legacy and to cite what the theologians of the past and the present used to say about the Shaykh.
