Enumerating the qualities required for a mureed Shaikh Najamuddin Kubra (Allah have mercy on him) said,
‘He must be shrewd. Traversing this path requires cleverness and dexterity. This is to deal with perils that he will face in this journey.
He must keep peace with all the creation of Allah and only battle with his own lower self (nafs).’
