Bayah with Shaykh Hisham in Birmingham

Question:

Asalamualykum

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?

Answer:

Alaykum Salam,

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.
