Taking bay`at (pledge of allegiance) for the purpose of receiving khilaafat

PrintE-mail

My father used to relate an incident of a villager who had come to Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi Rahmatullahi Alayhi and took bay`at at his hands. After taking bay`at he remained silent thinking that Moulana may say a few words. However, when he realised that he was not going to speak he said, “Hajratjee! Why don’t you grant me the lineage of the mashaayikh (khilaafat) as well?”

Moulana asked him, “What will you then do?” He replied, “I will also become like you and have mureeds.”
