Question: What is the significance of accompanying a Shaykh on divine path?
B’ism Allah… Alhamdulillah, from the teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi (QS), accompanying a Shaykh on the divine path is of immense spiritual significance. The Shaykh’s presence is the means through which one can learn to develop love and build a spiritual connection at the level of the soul. As Allah ﷻ advises to enter every house through the correct door, in a similar way, we are guided to connect with our Shaykh through the heart, which is the door to spiritual ascension.
The Shaykh is seen as the inheritor of the Prophetic reality and serves as a living example of Divine attributes manifesting through the line of pious servants. This physical and spiritual companionship is a path to cultivating inner presence (Hudur) through love (Muhabbat), leading to a deeper spiritual understanding and connection with the Divine Truths.
By maintaining good manners and a loving connection with a Shaykh, one can enter the realm of the heart, the realm of spiritual realities, far beyond the limitations of the physical world. The Shaykh assists the seeker in navigating the path towards self-effacement and reaching the Divine Presence, reflecting the love and light of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ.
May Allah ﷻ grant you the opportunity to be in such noble company, and may your journey on the divine path be blessed with sincere companionship and guidance. Engage in Khidmat (service) to the Tariqa and the Shaykh, and spread the love of the Prophet ﷺ among all.
