Shaykh Ahmad Önder from Diyarbakir Passes Away


Shaykh Ahmad Önder from Diyarbakir Passes Away Diyarbakir masjid

Bismillah …

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh , We pray this finds everyone well, wrapped in Allah’s mercy and steadfastly traveling the path to eternal felicity, in sha Allah.

The Erudite Scholar Shaykh Ahmad Önder from Diyarbakir has Passed Away . Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. May He give him to drink from the Basin of His Prophet (alayhi salat wa salam), that he may never thirst thereafter, and may He enter him into the highest gardens of Paradise! Ameen.

It is with a saddened heart that I inform everyone that I received a call confirming that Shaykh Ahmad Önder of Diyarbakir has passed away. He was the most senior student of Shaykh Shamsuddin Effendi (quddisa sirruhu), and Shaykh al-Sajjada of the Khalwati-Qadiri lodge in Diyarbakir after the death of Shaykh Badruddin (quddisa sirruhu) in 2012. He was arguably the last living Sufi recluse in the traditional Khalwati path. I had the honor of being part of the compilation of a short biographical tract on Shams Effendi (quddisa sirruhu) under the supervision of Shaykh Ahmad (quddisa sirruhu). He stopped his breathing exercises during ibadah in the Sufi lodge where he resided and rarely left except due to pressing needs. I ask you all to keep him, his students, and all of the Shuyukh, with special emphasis on the Khalwati and Qadiri salasil in your duas. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
We will be Upadting this page with the Biography of the Late Shaykh InshahAllah!
