Who We Are‎ > ‎

Sheikh Abdul Wahid

Sheikh Abdul Wahid is an Australian who has been interested in mysticism all his life. After experiencing various mystical traditions, he became a follower of the Mevlevi Sufi tradition under Sheikh Abdullah Sirr Dan al Jamal. Consequently he is an expert in the Sema, or Ceremony of the Mevlevi Whirling Dervishes, originally created by the landmark Sufi and poet, Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi.

As Sheikh Nazim has also been given authority in the Mevlevi Order, Sheikh Abdul Wahid conducts the authentic Whirling Dervishes Ceremony, with the full blessing of the Sufi Saints.

He has been personally trained by Sheikhs Nazim and Hisham Kabbani, and this training continues today.

He is based in Victoria

He heads the Dhikr at our meetings, usually gives talks on Sufism, and is available to answer questions.
