from Sidi Shaykh Muhammad Sa'id al-Jamal's visit

[>] Pictures from Sidi Shaykh Muhammad Sa‘id al-Jamal ar-Rifa‘i ash-Shadhuli's visit to Del Mar, Southern California, 1st December. 2007. Since 1994 Shaykh visits the United States every year, staying for a few months and traveling the country visiting his beloveds.

Yesterday i had the blessed opportunity to meet the Shaykh, the present guide of the Shadhdhuliyyah Tariqah, affectionately known as Sidi meaning Sir or Teacher. Sidi gave bayat (initiation to sufi path) to new aspirants and i got initiated as well, Alhamdulillah. Shaykh gave each a new sufi name and while gazing lovingly he called me Salim. So there goes my sufi name, Salim. 'Selim' or 'Salim' means "peaceful", "safe", derived from Arabic salima "to be with peace". Its also the same in Hebrew Salem meaning the same.

During the Bayat the Shaykh blessed the new aspirants and helped them say and do tauba, a spiritual, physical and mental process of turning back to God. Shaykh adorned all new aspirants with a beautiful prayer bead or tasbih (rosary) in the initiation ceremony.

Bayat, an Islamic word for allegiance, and the word means "taking hand", a practice mentioned by Quranic Surah 48:10: "Verily, those who give thee their allegiance, they give it but to God Himself, God's hand is upon their hands ...". This tradition of the Prophet himself is thus observed for the initiation ceremony specific to many Sufi orders.

. About the Sadhiliya Tariqa | Shadhiliya is one of the major tariqa or sufi path, founded by Imam Shadhili, may God sanctify his station, who originated from North East African country. Imam Shadhili was the Shaykh of all Shaykhs and Quthub (the spiritual and energy pole of God) of his time.

Being the 23rd hereditary grand son of our beloved Prophet Muhammad, the Messenger of God, Shaykh Shadhili was the first in this world to introduce Zikr JAHRI. That is meditating 'Allah' louder so that to get control over all the five human sensations.

Shadhiliyya Tariqa is known as Thareeqush Shukr (the path of gratitude) and one of the teachings that Shadhiliyya preaches is to enjoy all (halal) permitted matters in the world and thank God always who provided every thing, and Hence the name THAREEQUSH SHUKR.

The Tribute of spreading this Tariqa world wide through His (Karaamath – E – Jahri) exhibited wonders goes to Shaykh Muhammadh Ajwadh Al Fassy, may God be pleased with him, who was the 21st Khaleefa or representative. During his tenure as Khaleefa tariqa with Zikr Jahri, Inshaadh, Auraadh and Hizb was spreaded all over the world. The path also focuses on sufi healing methods. details The University of Spiritual Healing and Sufism.

Today there are 117 countries around the globe where the practices of Shadhiliyya tariqa are being performed. People from all over the world, because of the mixture of their regional languages, pronounce and spell Shazuli(ya) as, Shadhili(ya), Shazili(ya), Shadhuli(ya), Chadhuli(ya), Chadili(ya), Chadhili(ya), Chazuli(ya), chazli(ya) etc., Though it is spelled with various pronunciations and spellings all refers only to this tariqa "Shadhili(ya)".
