You can make intention to recite 40 days and see how it goes, and if you have dream of any Shaykh coming to you/to your home/you making bayat/or giving you some advise/giving you something in your hand
then you must follow that one and accept that shaykh with full heart and accept the zikr he give to you…
tarikat is not membership business…
Like other groups and other tarikat and other murids in every tarikat, I do not do membership business in tarkat
But if you wish to follow from your deep heart without doubt or second thought , Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) and be in part of the Jama’th of Waliyullahi Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) I can initiate you to Naqshbandi Tarikat…
I ask you to recite Salawat Nabi, for you to have an assurance about the Shaykhs, before coming to this way..
Whoever I met in my life, have come to this way, including so many murids and some khadims of other Shaykhs….
except tijani people, because their tarikat has a unusual rule that, you cannot be part of other tarikat or cannot attend zikr or salawat of other tarikat or other groups…
but our way says, “Whoever invite you to something good (i.e to remember Allah and make Salawat on Prophet) then accept invitation (Hadith)
It might be a rule of Tijani Tarikat, but I do not accept such rules especially in this time of Fitnah, where people shall attend wherever there is a Zikr Majlis, if possible…
And Allah says in Quran: “Who can forbidden for you those things what Allah has made lawful for you?”
So, to follow Tarikat means to follow Quran and Sunnah according to the understanding of Muttaqin..(Zalikal Kitabu La raiba feeh, Hudan lil muttaqin), this is very important….
All misguided sects and the saved sects reading same Quran and Hadith books
but guided one follow the understanding of the Muttaqin(2:2), Imams of the Salaf (the best people are my generation,then those after them and those after them-Hadith), “Mujaddid” of every century (Abu Dawud, Kitab Al Malhama) and those who are in authority among you (4:59)
And they have Assurance(Yaqeen) from their LORD…
But the other sects leaders, they have no spiritual lineage no assurance, no foundation…
Other sects founded in colleges,universities and from worldly certifications…
the foundation of our way is unbroken spiritual chain and family lineage to Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam)
Wa Salam alaikum Wa Rahmathu Allahi wa Barakathu hu
