Why would we as Muslim take bayah to Shaykh Nazim? I’m just curious when we have so many other great Muslim leaders?
It is out of love and seeking guidance that they make the bay’ah, as a seal of commitment that binds the guide and the seeker. Little do Muslims wonder how they are free to make bay’ah with any other Muslim leaders, presidents, kings, prime ministers, even tyrants. So to make bay’ah with a renown scholar and saintly figure in Shaykh Nazim far outweighs the benefits one shall reap as against a bay’ah with anyone else, for Dunya and Akhirah.
