Last night we reviewed the story of the nineteenth figure on the Slisila: Ya’qub al-Charkhi (q).
We learned that Ya’qub (q) was not imeadiately accepted as a student of Shah Naqshband (q). When he was latter given bayat he saw all the Shaykhs of the Silsila present taking his hand. I asked my son if he had seen these Shaykhs when he received bayat. My son said he couldn’t remember. I told him that the next time he renews his bayat he should look.
We learned that Ya’qub (q) would sometimes pull on his beard and when he was in a spiritual vision the hairs would come out.
