The most essential thing on the part of the mureed is to efface his owndesires, suggestions and plans. He should completely surrender to his Sheikh’s advice.
This is the very first step of Tasawwuf.
It is done voluntarily and is within one’s control.
Only when one completes this successfully it is possible to set up and surrender to the commands of Allah swt and His messenger sallalaho alehey wa alehi wassalem in the true sense.
