The Honorable Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad (db) is one of the leading shaykhs of Tasawwuf in the present era and was formally granted authorization (ijãza) in the Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi spiritual path (tarîqah) by Shaykh Ghulam Habib (ra). You may view the chain (silsilah) of Shaykhs of tazkiyah and tasawwuf from Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad (db) back to the Blessed Messenger here.
A hãfiz of the Qur’ãn, Shaykh Zulfiqar studied classical discilpines of Islamic learning alongside his university education. Trained as an electrical engineer, the Shaykh went on to become the General Manager at one of Pakistan’s leading industrial groups, only to retire at the age of forty to devote himself entirely to the service of Islam. He regularly travels throughout the world, transforming the lives of people and drawing them closer to Allah (SWT).
It is a testament to his deep love for Allah , his uncompromising dedication to the sunnah of the blessed Prophet (shari’ah) that thousands of religious scholars and students of Islamic learning are amongst his students (murîds). The Shaykh has written dozens of books, many of which have been translated into several languages.
Many of the points that Shaykh Kamaluddin highlights are those that he learned during his company and association with the honorable Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad (db). A separate site, www.tasawwuf.org , is dedicated to the lectures and writings of Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahmad and we highly encourage you to visit this site and to take advantage of the countless words of wisdom preserved there.
The honorable Shaykh’s lectures are available for online streaming and download in both English and Urdu and many of his writings, including ebook versions of Love for Allah and Wisdom for the Seeker, are available on the Writings and Basics for the Seekers pages on www.tasawwuf.org.
