Do not spend too much of time in the company of the shaikh

Nowadays the potential and ability of the mureeds have weakened so drastically that it has become difficult to acquire faiz (blessings) from the shaikh. Therefore, do not spend lengthy periods of time in the company of the shaikh. Instead, according to availability of time visit him for a short while, say that which is necessary and return. Thereafter, follow the guidance of the shaikh.

If one spends more time in the company of the shaikh then it will lead to either one of two destructive maladies: (1) One will consider the `ibaadat of the shaikh to be very minimal resulting in entertaining evil thoughts of him. This is a cause of severe deprivation. (2) One will consider the `ibaadat of the shaikh to be more than what it really is thereby considering his shaikh to be the most pious person. This will lead to him disdaining other mashaayikh. The harm of this is also clear.
