Asalam o alaykum wrh wbr
In Mercy Oceans Book 2, P.19 it is written:
For a humble mureed following a murshid, if he is consulting the murshid in every matter it is good, but for three things it is a must. These are marriage, divorce, and far journeying.
I am not a mureed but a mubtadi‘. I gave baya to Shaykh Mehmet in UK last year in June. Now I wish to get married and I also need to travel again to UK and I live in Pakistan.
Do I have to go to Cyprus and consult Shaykh Mehmet about my marriage and also if I should go back to UK to continue my studies? Or can I somehow consult him on phone about it? Would it be bad, sinful or dangerous if I get married or travel without consulting Shaykh Mehmet? Please advise me.
wa `alaykum salam,
A mubtadi` is still a mureed, i.e. these same conditions apply.
As for the baya`, it is always referred to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil al-Haqqani.
You may consult Shaykh Mehmet, Shaykh Hisham or Shaykh Adnan in this matter, but only one of them.
