On Attending Gatherings Virtually

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

Does someone attending your gatherings virtually receive what someone attending physically attains? Is there a difference between attending an online class live and watching the recording later?

What is received is dependent on the state of the person – their intention, their level of connection, their etiquette and their perception. Some reach the level of being in complete physical proximity and others will be of lesser degrees.
