Collecting a few Pearls from the life of Sheykh Ahmet Yesevi (QS)

11 Apr

BismillahirRahmanirRahim

Selam Aleykum was Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu,

Medet Ya Seyh, Medet. Alhamdulillah, I know that the nature of the postings on this blog has been for the most part erratic, and touch-and-’disappear’ rather than touch-and-go, but these days I’m more awake to the support coming from my Seyh, and when there is support, things begin to open up, Shukr-Alhamdulillah.

It was due to this support that I stumbled across quite a detailed, well-written, and well-sourced life story of one of the highest saints that have ever-lived; one many of us-(myself included), either may not know much, or may not have even heard the name of. I am speaking of that saint, Rehmatullah Alaih, who is known as the ‘Father of the Turks’ – Sheykh Ahmed Yesevi (QS- Qadas’Allah hu Sirrah – May Allah preserve his secret).

Though I had seen the portrait of Sheykh Ahmet (QS) in the gallery on our homepage and on the wall of our upstate Dergah, in Sidney Center, New York – I knew nothing save his praised name and his blessed face. But the love and importance given to this Saint, among many others, by our Seyh Effendi is apparent, and is due cause – now that this has opened up, to spend some time illustrating his life, connecting to his presence in our lives, and re-appreciating his value as it is forever being done in His presence and by the Most Beloved One in His Presence, as we may discover soon enough. The wealth of material that has opened up require that I devote some time and harvest the jewels of this find patiently and carefully so as to be able to present something of benefit to both you and I, Insh’Allah Rahman. With His permission and His Beloveds’ blessing, and our Seyh Effendi’s support, I intend to do just that. I will attempt, Insh’Allah, to add successively in parts; thus begins part one of a brief yet wondrous account of the life of Shaykh Ahmet Yesevi (QS).

    Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

    As salam alaikum

    It was wonderful to find this stories of Shaykh Ahmad Yesevi (qs) and to know that Shaykh Effendi appreciates him.

    Just right now one of our peruvian friends is in Kazakhistan and he is pretty much interested in sufism, so it was wonderful that I coukd find it.

    May Allah bless Shaykh Effendi Hazleteri more and more and may we be under his feet.

    Selamat

    Nureddin
