|Assalam Wa allaikum brothers and sisters in Islam,
I humbly state that the comment of Sheikh Ahmed Tijani(RA) condemning the visitations(ziyaras) is misunderstood and wrong.A Tijani mureed can make ziyaras to any sheikh, but the condition applies that the mureed cannot go to ziyara a non tijani sheikh to obtain spiritual benefits.
