World famous Muslim scholar Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani has passed away at the age of 92 in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Shaykh Nazim had been receiving intense care since April 17 when he rushed from his home in Lefke to the Near-East University Hospital in Lefkosa (Nicosia) after suffering from respiratory problems and heart failure.

Shaykh Nazim was the leader of the Naqshibandi-Haqqani Sufi order which traces its roots back to 11th-century Sufi Saint Abdul Qadir Jilani and 13th-century mystical poet Jalaluddin Rumi.

He inherited the leadership of the order from Shaykh Abdullah Fa'izi ad-Daghestani after he passed away in 1973 and has millions of followers all over the world.

Having lived in Turkey, Syria and the United Kingdom, Shaykh Nazim then settled in his hometown in the TRNC. He was fluent in English, Turkish, Arabic and Cypriot Greek.
