What are the requirements to become a murid?


Question: What are the requirements to become a murid?

murid (3)

It is said in this way, Shaykh Efendi is saying, ‘To enter into our way to become a murid, it is, the door is as wide as between East and West. Very easy. Requirements? What requirements? But to come out from this way, you cannot even find a needle hole. So those who escape, good luck to you.

There’s no requirement. You are sincere, when you take the bayat, you are saying, ‘I believe in this Person that he is trying to help me to find my way back to my Lord,’ you are believing in that, hold on to it. That is the requirement. Sincerity. Because our Dergah is not a Dergah of despair. Even if you break your promises 1000 times come again. Come, and make the intention to leave your ego behind, outside. Because this is what it is this Dergah is concentrating on, the ego and how to put it outside. It’s a long struggle. And if we die in this struggle, we die a very honourable death. Don’t look for the prize. Look to the quality of the struggle that you give. Selam waleykum wa Rahmathullah.
