Question: Why is it important to listen to the Shaykh?
Alhamdulillah, from the teachings of Mawlana Shaykh Nurjan Mirahmadi (QS), the importance of listening to the Shaykh in the Naqshbandi Tariqa is deeply rooted in establishing a strong connection with the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. The Shaykh provides guidance and supports us in following the Sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ, keeping us grounded and focused on our spiritual objectives.
By attending zikrs, participating in the daily awrad (spiritual practices), and being of service, one is constantly reminded of the goals of the Tariqa—to increase love and connection to the Prophet ﷺ and ultimately, to Allah ﷻ. The Shaykh’s role is to guide and direct the seekers on the path, through personal interactions and advising them on how to navigate their spiritual journey. The Shaykh, through his connection with the chain of Naqshbandi masters, conveys support, light, and understanding to the mureeds, strengthening their bond with the Divine.
Obeying the counsel of the Shaykh, and keeping a strong relationship with him, helps to protect against confusion and misguidance, ensuring the safety and progress of the seeker on the path towards Allah ﷻ.
May Allah ﷻ bless and guide you on your spiritual journey, and may your heart be filled with the love of the Prophet ﷺ. May you continue to support the Tariqa through your participation and services, and spread the love that Mawlana Shaykh Nurjan (QS) embodies. Bi hurmati Muhammad al-Mustafa ﷺ wa bi siri Surat al-Fatiha.
Your support to Tariqa is incredibly valuable, and if it’s within your means, consider aiding the noble cause at Muslim Charity. Every bit counts.
