As salaamu alaikum,
After recently deciding to pursue a career in Islamic studies and was hoping to seek a mentor. This interpretation is a bit time sensitive, as it concerns my studies coming this summer and fall, insha’Allah.
I recently had a dream in which an Islamic academic and imam, who I had spoken to before, sent me an email filled with all the resources on Islam he could possibly provide; Qur’anic tafsirs, hadith literature, texts, etc. They also sent me a notebook which I recognized as mine. It was filled with my notes, ideas, and the little study of Islam I’d already done. They wrote me a letter saying, “Anything within your notebook, I’ve taken and added to my collection. It’s listed as yours, but it’s now in a place together.”
Should approach this person and humbly ask if they would mentor me in my future studies? Jazak’Allah Khairan!!
Yes, you may ask for mentoring and I also recommend you make bayaa to
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim as your murshid in the spiritual path.
