On Feeling Distant from Your Shaykh

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him).

How do we fill the void in our hearts that we feel from not physically being in your company?

Imagine yourself often to be in the Rawdah, at the Mihrab (the prayer-niche) of the Prophet ﷺ and in front of the Hujrah (the enclosure in which he is buried), bestow abundant prayers upon him, attach yourself to him and be keen to act upon his Sunnah. Also attend our internet lessons and watch/listen to our recorded talks and lessons as much as possible. Then act upon our advice.

You should not be worried about being apart for a short time in this life. Instead you should prepare for the everlasting communion in Paradise through reciting your adhkar with presence of heart and performing other praiseworthy actions.
