A good friend of mine introduced me to an individual who l have become quite fond of and became good friends. A Naqshabndi in tariqah, he will always light up the room with his green turban and traditional style of dressing. He will always go to Cyrus for a few days to go and see Shaykh Nazim Haqqani. His love for the Shaykh is evident, so is the Shaykh’s love for him , as he has in his possession the walking stick of Shaykh Nazim Haqqani that was given to him by the Shaykh himself.

Having the love of wood, l couldn’t help but inspect it and take a closer look. It had a few nail indentations and a floral pattern at the top front of the stick, very light to hold with a metal point at the bottom. I believe it is made out of bamboo but am not too sure. Holding the walking stick of Sultan Ul Awliya is an honour indeed.

The Prophet (SAW) said, “You will be with those whom you love.
