The objective of sulook


Khawaja Mohammad Ma’soom Sirhindi (may Allah have mercy on him) said,

The objective of travelling on the path (sulook) is not to become a Shaykh and accept murid.  In fact its aim is to fulfil the duties of slave-hood (abdiyet) without the involvement and resistance of the lower self (nafs).
