Q: I want to change my life and attain closeness to Allah and true love for Him. However my parents don’t want me to take bay’at. They think I’ll become “too pious”. So can I take bay’at without my parents permission? I won’t be corresponding with the Sheikh directly but rather with his wife. And I know that the Sheikh is a Sheikh-e-Kaamil.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
