Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I notice the sunnis take bayett to a sheikh and when he dies they don’t take bayett to another as they say he is more powerful when he passes away,but the Majlees group take bayett to a sheikh and when he dies they take bayett to another,who is correct or are both incorrect

Answer

Bay?at (allegiance) itself is not purposeful. The actual purpose is to reform oneself through the process of Bay?at. If the actual purpose is fulfilled without following the process of taking Bay?at, then that is sufficient.

In view of the actual purpose of Bay?at being reformation, any one of the procedures, not renewing Bay?at after the death of one’s Shaykh or renewing the Bay?at may be correct if the actual purpose of Bay?at is achieved.
