Bay’ah for dead relatives


Assalamu’alaikum, Respected Seniors

Forgive me for my lack of adab.
Please could you clarify, can one seek bay’ah with the shaykh for family members and relatives that have passed on.

Once again, forgive me for any bad manners.

Jazakallhu Khair


`Alaykum Salam,

The Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) always lavished his mercy on those who passed away and extended his spiritual gaze to them as shown in his Sira, even to his worst enemies at times, let alone the believers. Therefore follow your inspiration when renewing bay’ah and ask the shaykh at that time.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
