I am a female who recently took online bayat with Sheikh Nazim. However, I do not feel starting of any spiritual connection with Mawlana, and this disturbs me. How may I learn if I feel no connection to the Mawlana? What can I do to make the connection? I have tried mediating and rabita (as learned from the site NurMuhammad) but nothing happens. I try to visualize Mawlana, but the connection is elusive. I feel as if maybe my bayat was unacceptable or I am doing something wrong or maybe I am being rejected because of something I did or am not doing? I am not sure. Please tell if bayat was accepted and if there is a way for initiates to establish connection.
May Allah bless Sheikh Nazim, Sheikh Hisham and all awliya and all pious people. Allhamulla sale ala Muhammad.
wa `alaykum salam,
Alhamdulillah, yes your `baya has been accepted. Don’t let shaytan trick you into doubt. Insha-Allah, have patience and keep consistent in your `ibadah. Please read Shaykh Hisham Kabbani’s answer to the previous question, Not getting spiritual benefit. Also listen to or watch this suhbat.
