Taking someone as a murshid/peer

Q: Is one allowed to have a murshid/peer?

A: Just as one requires an ustaad and teacher to guide him in obligations and sunnats of deen, namaaz, tahaarat, etc. he also requires a peer to guide him in the obligations that pertain to the heart, like pride, ostentation, show, greed, malice, etc.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
