Sayyid Shaykh Selim Ahmed descends from a scholarly family that traces its roots back to Algeria and lineage to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ through the great gnostic; Shaykh Abu Madyan al-Ghawth (Q).
Showcasing a real passion and desire for Sufism from a young age, Shaykh Selim dedicated himself to classical inshad; graduating as a lead vocalist and an established daff player.
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.
Shaykh Selim currently resides in Bradford, where he continues to propagate, and bring to life, the spiritual art of Inshad in the west.
