Mahabbat (Love) and `Aqeedat (Devotion) for the Shaikh


The basis for deriving benefit from one’s shaikh is to love and display total devotion to the shaikh. Someone had posed the question, “Why isn’t love made the sole basis, since `aqeedat is required to create the love?” adhrat replied, “`Aqeedat is not a pre-requisite for mahabbat. A son will love his father but if the father continuously commits sins he will not have `aqeedat (hold him in high esteem) for him.”
