Question : If you are from another Tarikat, what does it mean to see Shaykh Abdul Kerim Effendi a couple of times in your dreams?
It means that there is something that is there, there is some secret that he is going to give to you. In the first place we have to understand in this time, the Tarikats they are not supposed to be divided, they are not supposed to be separated. They are supposed to come together. And in these times, those who understand that secret, that we are supposed to come together, they are not going to see any separation. Even if they are following different ones, but those different ones, they are all falling under the same umbrella.
So you belong to another Tarikat and you see our Sheykh, that is a very big blessing to you. It’s meaning that there is something there in this Ahir Zaman, in this way, in the way of Mahdi (as) that he’s going to give to you. And depending then on your connection, then you may take that and you may use it. But if you don’t have a connection, if you decide to cut the connection, then whatever that is there for you it may not come to you, because you are not responding to it, it may be given to others.
So, it is a good news to you. It is a very big blessing to you that one of the biggest Awliyas of this time, of the Ahir Zaman, one of the biggest Awliya that has ever lived, that you see him in your dream. And your reality is with him. He is collecting you and putting you under his protection. My congratulations to you and my prayers for you. InsyaAllah ar-Rahman. You will wake up and understand this. SelamAleykum.
