Talib (barakah) bayah from Awliya Allah


Aslamu alaiykum,

I hope you are in the best of health In Sha Allah.

I am from England and as you know evil has spread at every corner of the world, my heart yearns to be in good company, I want to go to pious people and Awliya Allah to sit and achieve from them. The problem is I get people questioning me why I should do that, they say to me I have Maulana Sheikh Nazim so I don’t need anyone else. They also say to me talib bayah should not be taken from Awliya Allah. I am accused of not loving my murshid which is not true. I have also heard Maulana Sheikh Nazim has encouraged people to go to other Awliya to sit with them and learn from them. What do I do?


Wa `alaykum salam,

Ask such people who say that are they in the living presence of their master all the time? If not, and if they have not successfully established the rabitah in a way that Mawlana Shaykh may guide them continuously through their hearts, then they should not interfere with you, because you seek to be in the company of the blessed and the
pious in order to derive spiritual benefit and to learn. Continue to seek the company of local awliya and sincere servants of Allah, but know that whatever spiritual benefit comes to you, it is being sent to you *through* them from your master.
