Assalaam Alaikum my respected Sheykhs!
I am from the Maldives and I am unable to visit MSN. But I love him and would love to become his mureed. But I am concerned because though I take online bayya I know I am not able to get suhubath or training under my sheikh. Since training under a sheikh is a must, how is it possible for me to get training and guidance under MSN while I am here in the Maldives? Since a murshid is a must and to get suhubath to be with murshid physically is a must. How is it possible for me? May I visit Cyprus for physical training under my sheikh?
Salaams to all sheikhs.
wa `alaykum salam,
You may visit Cyprus for physical training under your shaykh but know you may not get to meet with Mawlana Shaykh Nazim privately, due to his health conditions. Therefore there are assigned caliphas who are designated “trainers” and it is not, as you have stated, a must to get training direct from the shaykh.
