Assalamulaikum ya rijallah. In my country our youngster has follow the western life but lately Ive been representing and teaching them about naqshbandi ways and alhamdulillah they have followed it. Can I ask permission to represent naqshbandi to others??
wa `alaykum salam,
Permission to represent the Shaykh will be granted when you meet the Shaykh physically and he asks you to represent him (maadhoon), not by asking for it, because for sure the ego will get a lot of gratification from that position, and Allah knows best. But you can and should still try to do da`wah and call people to this Holy Way for in that sense every single mureed represents the Shaykh and the Way.
