May The Light of Allah always guide our steps.
طَرِيقَتُنَا الصُحْبَةُ وَالخَيْرُ فِي الجَمْعِيَّةِ
tarîqatounâ as-sohba wal khayrou fil jam’iyâ
“Our way is the companionship ( Sohba) and all benefits are in fraternal meeting “
– The purpose of Sohba:
….”Tariqatuna as-sohba; our way is through sohbat. Our way is being Ahbab, our way is love, respect, salamat /safety…” Shaykh Muhammad Nazim Al-Haqqani An-Naqshibandi
Sohba, means conversational companionship. The purpose of Sohba is always the sharing of Blessing and the cultivation of Soul, Love, Friendship and Saintliness. This is the way of the great Sufi Guides, and it is walked in their spiritual company.
Sohba is related with the Arabic term aṣ-ṣaḥābah (Arabic: الصحابة, “the companions”; from the verb صَحِبَ, “accompany”, “keep company with”, “associate with”) refers to the companions, disciples, scribes and family of the prophet Muhammad ( sal).
Companion, comes from Old French compagnon “fellow, mate, friend, partner” (12c.), ” from Latin com- “with” + panis “bread”. actually,” one who shares bread with another “cum,” with, “and panis,” bread
until it is broken?
The testimony of the companions, as it was passed down through chains of trusted narrators (isnads), was the basis of the developing Islamic tradition. From the traditions (hadith) of the life of Muhammad and his companions are drawn the Muslim way of life (sunnah), the code of conduct (sharia) it requires and the jurisprudence (fiqh) by which Muslim communities should be regulated.
