Shaykh Muhammad Adil, also fondly known as Shaykh Mehmet, is Maulana Shaykh Nazim’s elder son.
He is known for his intense humility, and only began speaking publicly at the Lefke Dergah when his father fell gravely ill late last year. He is so humble, that he often apologises for using the word ‘I’ during his Suhbahs, as that is a measure of a man’s ego. One can tell that a man speaks with ego, when he is using the word ‘I’ regularly in his speech, often praising himself, mentioning his long service or association to the Masters. Shaykh Mehmet is nothing of the sort, he is a down-to-earth simple man, who spends must time planting in the fields and tending to Maulana’s livestock. We will upload videos of him hard at work in the fields, once there is an opportunity.
Maulana Shaykh Nazim speaks very highly of him, having described him as a dragon on a few occasions. Maulana Shaykh Nazim speaks very highly of him, having described him as a dragon on a few occasions.
Last year, Shaykh Mehmet was appointed Shaykh of Shams, and also Khalifa of Maulana, the only Khalifa on Golden Chain, which instantly excludes all other representatives from that station henceforth.
Here is the Saltanat TV link where Maulana appoints Shaykh Mehmet, as his Khalifa on 4th November 2011. Maulana said:
“He is my Khalifa (Deputy). He as been granted by our GrandShaykhs. He is on Golden Chain. He may issue an order to everyone, through East and West. He is from Wuzera (Grand Viziers) of Mahdi (as).”
He gives Suhbahs, in Turkish and English.
