    During his visit in March 2016, Sheikh Mehmet Adil explained the term of a Derga as follows:
    "The difference between a Derga and a Mosque is, that you visit the Mosque to perform your prayer and then leave again, while in a Derga you meet a community, exchange yourselves and take communal meals."


    Dergas of the Naqshbandi-Order are not managed centrally, but frequently they are places made available by individuals to be used as a Derga.

    Besides the five daily prayers, that are obligatory for all Muslims, in a Derga also the regular practices in the tradition of the Naqshbandi-Order like the Dhikr are kept and alive.

    People, who like to advance spiritually, and travellers can stay and live in a Derga for free (sometimes very spartanic) , possibly in exchange for a few hours of daily work.
