Alhamdulilah I was privileged to meet Mawlana Shaykh Hisham when he came to Birmingham. A question which I have is that I did bayah with him intending to renew bayah with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim. But I read on eshaykh that it is possible to become a mureed of Mawlana Shaykh Hisham. http://eshaykh.com/sufism/how-to-become-murid-different-bayat/
So by doing bayah am I a mureed of Shaykh Hisham? And does that mean that we should do muraqabah with him? Also, earlier this year Shaykh Mehmet visited Birmingham and I thought that he was the full representative of Shaykh Nazim, before I found out that he had three, so I did bayah then and intended it with Shaykh Mehmet. My heart is with Shaykh Hisham but by doing bayah with Shaykh Mehmet first does that make me his mureed?
We continue to repeat, sempiternally if needed, that bayaa is to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim (quddisa sirruh). We are his murids in-sha-Allah. As for irshad or the spiritual and practical direction that one needs, follow your heart.
