What to do when consultation with Shaikh is not possible?

Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) said,

‘When consultation with Shaikh for guidance (in islah related issue) is not possible, either due to time constraints or logistics reasons then one should consult Allah directlly.

اللهم خرلنا واخترلنا

That is, turn to Allah asking for guidance and assistance in that perplexing situation.  This should be done repeatedly and continuously.

Allah guides the individual who turns to Him for guidance as it is said in the Holy Quran,

اللَّهُ يَجْتَبِي إِلَيْهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَيَهْدِي إِلَيْهِ مَنْ يُنِيب

Allah chooses (and pulls) towards Himself Anyone He wills and guide to Himself anyone who turns to him  (to seek guidance). (42:13)
