Those who come for their own reformation and zikr etc…should not be concerned with anything other than that. He should be occupied with his own business. Neither should he convey other people’s messages nor their greetings to the shaikh. He too should not be focused elsewhere nor should he divert the attention of the shaikh away from himself. In fact, as much as possible, one should try to keep the shaikh focused towards oneself. If this person conveys the salaam of another person to the shaikh, then he himself has diverted the attention he was receiving from the shaikh away from himself towards someone else. This goes against his own personal benefit, and also it is contrary to the loyalty of love.
