Ottomans in India!

Bismillahir Rahmanir RaheemShaykh Abdul Kerim Effendi visiting Shah Jahan Jama Masjid – Dehli, India

After salah the entire masjid takes bayah (initiation) with him into the Osmanli Naksibendi Hakkani Tarikat

The Masjid was completed in 1066 AH / 1656 AD.  Shah Jahan ordered the construction of this Masjid.  He was also the king who built the Taj Mahal.

In the video one will also find the travel to the Masjid via Rickshaw, entrance into the Masjid, and examination of the architecture.  Tasbihat is read after salah, people rush over to meet Shaykh Effendi and ask for prayers. Then a local Naksibendi Shaykh comes to greet Shaykh Effendi.  Dua is recited.

The Jama Masjid was the result of the efforts of over 5,000 workers, over a period of six years.
