Shaykh Muhammad Amin Kuftaro Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Khalidi (RA)- Biography

Sheikh Mohammed Amin Kuftaro (Arabicمحمد أمين كفتارو‎) (died 1938) was a noted Syrian-Kurdish Islamic scholar and head of the Naqshbandi Sufi tariqa. Before Sheikh Amin's death in 1938, it was clear he had designated his son, Sheikh Ahmed Kuftaro, to take over his office as sheikh of the tariqa; Ahmed later went on to become the official Grand Mufti of Syria. His grand brother, Sheikh Mohamed Saleh, was a very famous Muslim scholar and Sufi Nakshbandi Imam in Damascus, Syria. It was he who led Mohammed Amin to the field of Islamic theology and Sufism.
