The Naqshbandi School is the most noble school amongst all the spiritual schools of Islam. It is also known as the ESSENCE of all the Sufi orders. Its Link start from the First Caliph of Islam Leader of faithfuls Hazart Abu Bakar Siddique (Allah Blessed and mercy on him). While the great Saints like Hazrat Bhauddin Bukhari (Allah Blessed & Mercy on him) & the Treasure of all the Sufi orders Hazart Mujadid Alf-Sani Sheikh Ahmed Farooqi Sirhandi (Allah Blessed & Mercy on him) are the middle of their chain. It is believed that Hazrat Imam Mehdi (A.S) will be the last of this Sufi order.
As this order linked with the First Caliph of Muslims Hazarat Abu Bakar Siddique (R.Z). It is known as the first of all Sufi-orders.
The Sheikhs of this order practice Sunnah up to highest level and prefer it over any of the Sufi practices. The Head of the order Imam Buhauddin Naqshband(Q.A) Imam Naqshband mentioned it as
“ My path is nothing but the absolute following of Sunnah and heeding heart”.
The priority of this order over their practice of Sunnah is on highest level. Its Sheikh does not practice any innovation(Bd’at) good or bad (Hasna, Siyya). They follow the Sunnah of prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) in its original form. The Treasure of the order Imam Rabbani Mujadid Alf-Sani (Allah Blessed & Mercy on him) stated it as ..
“ I do not see any light in any innovation (Bd’at) .”
This order demonstrate the exact form and practices of Islam. We are not claiming here that every Sheikh of this order and every group who is relating their selves to this order are same in practicing Sunnah and avoiding Bd’at but we are making the statement of this order. A Sheikh who is avoiding every Bd’at and practicing Sunnah is the Link of this Nobel Chain.
The Naqshbandi order means only one thing PRACTICING SUNNAH ON THE HIGHEST LEVEL & AVOIDING INNOVATION(BD’AT) ON EVERY WAY.
The Sheikhs of this order do not fancy or flavor any of the Sufi practices over Sunnah. What they have brought is from Sunnah.
