BEST COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE I RECEIVED SO FAR, please read on
Assalaamu alaikum, Generally I dont answer curious people and consider it a wastage of time. I am making an exception so that I dont need to answer again.
Please dont share this with ignorant people who are dazzled by outward appearences.
The heart is a strange place where you can accomodate only one. It should be like a house prepared to welcome your beloved. First you need to clean it of all the junk that has been lying around since ages. Most of the dirts are invisible and gathers dust in the forgotten closets. You need to take those out and lay it on the floor. A casual and generally jahil visitor would gather the impression of a dirty house. Little would he know that the house is going through a process of cleaning. I consider all these people as intruders and dont take kindly to such unsolicited visits. The path of Majnoon is not for all. His madness is understood only by his beloved to whom he has pledged his life. The beautiful face of my beloved blurs out everything else. I want to give a present to my loved one on our first meeting. a present that would be unique and stands out due its value. Now what is there of value except the Face of the beloved. Probe no further because I had warned you beforehand of the consequences. The only advice I can give you is read Surat Kahf. Read it like it should be read. For the last two or three years I have been reading only the first two lines trying to relish its beauty. When I hear from my beloved I will travel deeper into the cave. On Eid Uz Duha we perform qurbani. Qurbani of what. Of animals. But we go to the market to acquire the animal that would be sacrificed. I am in the cattle market in the process of buying the most beautiful animal I can lay my hands on. First I need to know how much money I have in my pocket. I have found out that I am a well endowed person. Very rich by material standards. My money is my talent which people are getting a glimpse of now. With that money I will buy the best animal in the market. That is fame. Which I will bring home with intention to sacrifice with a single slice of the knife I have been sharpenning. My heart is empty. It has no place for anyone except my beloved. But Laila is Laila. No comparison with anyone. If my life is wanted I would give it freely because I dont own it. The animal only needs a rapier thrust.

MY SPIRITUAL GUIDE HZT. MD NASIM AFSAR SAHEB EXPIRED ON 28.08.2016 AT MUMBAI. PLEASE PRAY FOR HIS MAGFIRAAT.


THE IMPORTANCE OF A SPIRITUAL GUIDE
Pledging allegiance, also known as taking bayah or bayt, is a tradition from the times of Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
Once such example of this is when the Noble Companions pledged oath to him under the tree. In this incident, each Companion placed their hand in the hand of the Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and affirmed their faith in the oneness of Allah (tawheed).
This incident is reported in the Holy Qur’an, which states, “Certainly Allah was pleased with the believers when they pledged allegiance to you, [O Muhammad], under the tree, and He knew what was in their hearts, so He sent down tranquillity upon them and rewarded them with an imminent conquest.” [Qur’an 48:18]
Importance of Bayah to a Shaykh
The Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “Whoever dies and did not take an oath of allegiance (to a Muslim leader) has died a death of jahiliyah (ignorance).” [Bukhari, Muslim]
Sayyidina Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani said, “The heart is the plantation for the Aakhira (hereafter). Sow the seeds of Imaan in your heart. Irrigate, fertilise and mature it with regular good deeds. If there is kindness and energy in the heart, it will be fertile and an abundant harvest will result. Should the heart be harsh and contemptuous, the soul becomes infertile, barren and no crop will be able to grow.
Learn this art of farming by its farmers/experts, the Awliya Allah. Do not think your opinion to be sufficient. Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) says, ‘Seek help in every field from an expert in that field.’” [Al-Fathur Rabbani, pg. 202]
He leads you to Allah by guiding you through the path of Shar’iah and the teachings of our Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The Murshid is he who takes others under his guardianship so that he may help them with their deen, often strengthening their hearts with zikr and good counsel.
 a mureed (a spiritual disciple, follower, a seeker who follows the Murshid as his guide on the path of Tasawwuf) must hold complete adab (respect) and humility where his Murshid is concerned. 
The nafs also learns to obtain knowledge and guidance from one who is greater in faith, causing it to humble itself.
They will guide you on the path of Allah since they have already travelled on this path. because they have also suffered their consequences and are well aware of the dangers and harms of evil desires. They have battled these over a long period of time and can confront, control and defeat them.
Additionally, spending time in the presence of the righteous will cause one to benefit greatly in character and mannerisms. This influence has a powerfully positive effect on a person’s heart and mind, causing them to adopt traits pleasing to Allah.
• Imam Ghazali states in his Ihya Uluum al-Din, “Keep company with those who have firm faith, hear from them the learning of sure faith, follow them always, so that your faith may become firm as their faith became firm.”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, as an analogy for good/bad company, “The likeness of a righteous friend and an evil friend, is the likeness of a (musk) perfume seller and a blacksmith. As for the perfume seller, he may either bestow something on you, or you may purchase something from him, or you may benefit from his sweet smell…” [Bukhari, Muslim]
The above narration clarifies the importance of righteous company, which can benefit a person in more ways than one
Also, the Holy Qur’an states:
“And keep yourself patient [by being] with those who call upon their Lord in the morning and the evening, seeking His countenance.”[Qur’an 18:28]
Imam Abu Hanifa said, emphasizing the importance of sitting at the feet of a spiritual guide and teacher, “If it were not for two years, I would have perished. For two years, I accompanied Imam Jafar al-Sadiq and I acquired the spiritual knowledge that made me a knower in the Way (i.e. Tasawwuf).” [Ad-Durr Al-Mukhthar, Vol. 1, page 43]
Imam Malik said, “Whoever studies jurisprudence (fiqh) and does not study Tasawwuf will be corrupted. Whoever studies Tasawwuf and does not study jurisprudence will become a heretic. Whoever combines both will reach the truth.” [Kashf Al-Khafa Wa Muzid Al-Abas, Vol. 1, page 341]
The Naqshbandi tareeqa is distinguished in that it is the only one which connects from the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to Sayyidina Abu Bakr Siddique (may Allah be pleased with him) onwards, whereas all the others connect from the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to Sayyidina Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) onwards.
The Shejra is a chart which shows clearly how the tareeqa has progressed; which Companions and saints it has been passed down from. It clarifies the spiritual connection and authenticity of the guidance a mureed is blessed with through their tareeqa.
Therefore, the mureed must ensure that they are consistent in reciting the awrad (or wird, wazaa’if, or daily zikr) prescribed to them by their spiritual guide. This is of utmost importance; the Murshid is a healer or physician who recommends the appropriate antidote necessary for the seeker.
Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti said, “Whatever zikr the Murshid has instructed should be read accordingly so that the mureed may attain some spiritual perfection; what the Murshid commands is for the benefit of the mureeds.”
