The Golden Chain of Spiritual Transmission

The Naqshbandi Golden Chain is a lineage of spiritual masters of the Naqshbandi Sufi order going back to the The Prophet Muhammad (sal). It is a chain in which each Master was given Ijazah or permission to transmit the knowledge he had received to the next generation of students in the traditional manner of Sufi transmission.

The Naqshbandi Chain, as different from all other Sufi lineages, is unique in that it stems from the first Caliph, Abu Bakr Siddeeq (ral), whome the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal) said about “Never was anything revealed to me that I did not pour into the heart of Abu Bakr.”

The below mentioned are the names and biographies of the Sufi Masters who consist of the Spiritual Lineage of Moulana Sheikh Nazim going back to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sal):
