Assalamu alaikum Dear Sheikh Hisham
I Feel confused, before I took Bayat with Sheikh Nazim I took Bayat on 3 different Sheikh’s hands (age 14 – 21). I know this is terrible to keep changing your Sheikh and I ask for forgiveness. I just wanted to be close to Allah so whenever I felt there was someone who could take me faster onto the spiritual Highway, I moved on. This is definitely a flaw within me because I am spiritually blind so how can I see who will take me to Allah faster.
Now (21) a few months ago I took INTERNET Bayyat but I do not know if my bayyat was accepted (i.t.o. above). I feel changing my spiritual teachers repeatedly could be an obstacle to reaching Allah’s nearness & connection with Sheikh
Sheikh Please ask Allah for my forgiveness and His love and Connection with Sheik.
wa `alaykum salam,
You are young and your impetuousness is understandable. Insha-Allah Mawlana Shaykh has accepted your baya` initiation. Begin to practice the awrad of the Initiate (mubtadi`), on the Naqshbandi Website. Insha-Allah with that practice, many things will open of benefit to you in this life and the next. Keep connected to the Shaykhs by watching sufilive.com and attending local Haqqani Dhikr if possible.
