I would like to inquire about the following:
I am a brother from South Africa. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Moulana Sheikh nor any of his khalifas in order to take bayyat first hand (I hope I will someday InshAllah). I have found the online bayyat through a medium and have taken that bayyat. Although I have heard that the online bayyat has been an accepted method, but I somehow do not feel any confirmation being initiated into the Naqshbandi Tariqa. I would really feel better if you could maybe advise me with an alternative solution to taking bayyat as well as provide me with the teachings and practices of this beautiful tariqa.
A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem
All bay’ah made online are accepted without doubt. Alhamdulillah, you are follower of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani now.
Should you wish to contact any representative in South Africa, please locate them from this map: http://www.sufilive.com/centers/ and zoom in to South Africa. As a heads up, do get in touch with Shaykh Dr. Yusuf da Costa, based in Kensington, Cape Town.
