|Sheikh Ahmad Dabbagh ketika Maulid Kubra 2012|
Shaykh Ahmad Dabbagh is the teacher of a self-purification (tazkiyah nafs) in Tareeqah Muhammadiyah Shadhiliyah Qaaddiriyah, who resides in Greater Manchester, UK with his wife and children.
His family lineage links back to Imaam Hassan Al Basri (Rahimuallah). He was born in Pakistan and grew up in Denmark. His first teachers were his grandfather and grandmother (rahimullah) who were known as pious ascetic servants of Allah. His great grandfather Shaykh Khayruddeen Auliyah was a disciple of Shaykh Bahaudeen Zakariyya Multani Suharwardi (rahimullah).
At 6 years of age he had a desire to memorize the Quran, learn the Islamic sciences and spent the next few years of his life studying with a number of Mashayikh and Ulama from whom he received permission to teach these disciplines.
He has a postgraduate qualification from Salford University in Strategic Marketing and Financial Management from the University of Central Lancashire and has worked in the police and prison services in the UK. Now he chooses to drive for a means of livelihood and does not take any wage or salary for the work of deen.
In recent years he and those who are under his supervision have been helping others who seek the Closeness of Allah by establishing 4 zawiyahs in the North West of England and a TV station which can be viewed Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 05.30-06.30pm in the UK & Europe. He delivers up to 6 discourses a weeks which can be listened to live at this site www.zawiyah.org.
He has travelled to the holy cities of Medina/Mecca and Fez in recent years where those who desired to take the path of purification benefitted from his works and further took the teachings to Turkey, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Middle East where zawiyahs have been established under his guidance. He received further ijazas from Shayukh in the Shadhili-Darqawi Tariqahs in addition to ijazas he has in Naqhsbandi, Suharwardi & Qadiri Tariqahs from various teachers.
The method of purification he currently teaches to those under his guidance links back to Sayyiduna Abdul Azeez DAbbagh (rahimullah) and is known as Tareeqah Muhammadiyah.
