Shaykh Kabbani's Response to False Allegations About State Department Speech

In response to the statement issued on February 26, 1999 by several Muslim organizations ("American Muslim leaders demand retraction and apology"), the Islamic Supreme Council of America issued the following statement.

Instead of following the Islamic etiquette of disagreement and speaking directly with Shaykh Kabbani about their "concerns," they followed a path more typical of tabloid journalism, seeking a broad-based dissemination of their defamatory claims without regard for the truth.

So those who wrote that were very clever... thank you very much.

Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Adil, World Leader of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, met with Pope Benedict XVI in Nicosia, Cyprus, on Saturday, June 5, 2010.

As a gesture of respect and humility, Shaykh Nazim travelled from Northern Cyprus to meet the pontiff in the UN buffer zone, and present him with gifts of a cane, a plaque with the word “peace” in Arabic and prayer beads. The Pope, in turn, presented Shaykh Nazim with a medal of his pontificate. In Islam, exchanging gifts is a tradition of the Prophet Muhammad (s) who said, “Exchange gifts, as that will lead to increasing your love to one another [Bukhari].
