Tribute to Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani (q)

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji`oon
Verily to Allah we belong and to Allah do we return.

It fills our hearts with grief and deep sadness to inform you that my brother and beloved companion in the Naqshbandi path, Qutb al-Aqtab, Mawlana Shaykh Adnan Kabbani at-Tahir (q), has returned to Our Lord’s Divine Presence today [16 Rabi al-Awwal/25 Nov 2018].
We ask Allah to grant him the highest stations in proximity to the Prophet of Allah (s) whom he loved and exemplified all his life, with his saintly masters Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil and Grandshaykh `Abd Allah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani (q) and with the Prophets, Messengers, Sanctified Worshippers, Martyrs and Righteous Saints.
May Allah grant Shaykh Adnan’s Family patience in the face of this loss. We give them our condolences and we are grieving as one with them. We will be reciting Surah Yasin for his soul.
 
If anyone wants to recite Quran for his soul, feed the people, do a Mawlid, or perform any acts of goodness and gift the rewards to Shaykh Adnan’s soul, that would be highly rewarded.

–Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
