Lose Yourself in Your Shaikh

The seeker (talib) should completely disregard his own opinions in front of the shaikh.  There are two things that are the requisites for the tareeq: a) Ittibaa’-e-Sunnah, and b) Ittibaa’-e-Shaikh.  Until the condition of the mureed does not become such that if the shaikh were to ask for his life and the mureed does not hesitate, no enjoyment will be derived from this bay’ah.

-Kashkol-e-Ma’rifat pg. 145
