Authorised to lead gatherings of dhikr by his eminence, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani (Q), and Mawlana Shaykh Muhammed al-Haqqani al-Rabbani (H), Shaykh Salim combines the knowledge and practice of music and faith in order to realise the true essence of Islam through remembrance, devotional poetry, and religious exhortations.
