After the demise of a Shaikh the disciples must contact another Shaikh at the earliest. Don't the Elders have to leave this world? Remember the case of the person who came to realize that Allah Most High is watching? He gave up eating and attending to his clinic. If he had not contacted Hazrat Thanwi (RA) then he would have been in serious trouble.
