While Mawlana Shaykh Adnan was in Malaysia recently, he announced Khalwah for 40 days from the 1st Rajab til 10th Sha’ban 1438AH and had requested Mawlana Shaykh Nazim spiritually if there is open permission for all to do Seclusion. Then one week ago after Fajr Prayer, Mawlana Shaykh Adnan saw Mawlana Shaykh Nazim in the dream in a green jubbah and said,
“This year, both of us are doing Khalwah and it will be for 42 days til the 12th Sha’ban.”
Also a third person was there but Mawlana Shaykh Adnan could not tell who it was.
This year, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim will be doing Khalwah with Mawlana Shaykh Adnan. The Imam of the Khalwah will be Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and after permission from Shaykh Muhammad Adil Ar-Rabbani, there is open permission to all mureeds to do the full 40 day Khalwah or doing Partial Khalwah during the 3 Holy times of the 24 hours. From Tahhajud (1 hour before Fajr) til Sunrise, Asr to Maghrib and Maghrib til Isha.
In these times, you read the Adab of Tariqah standing up facing Qiblah and make 3 steps towards Qiblah saying Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim each time then start the Adab of Tariqah. After completing the Adab, sit down and complete your daily awrad with addition making

Recite it ten times after reading the surah, & ten times in ruku’, ten times in i’tidal, ten times in Sujud, ten times while sitting & ten times in Sujud again, making 75 times in the that first Raka’at.
