'Verily, to Him do we belong, and unto Him do we return' (Quran: 2:156).

'Follow a perfect Pir and emulate what he does. This is peace, this is emancipation.' (Khwaja Enayetpuri).


Inna allatheena yubayiAAoonaka innama yubayiAAoona Allaha yadu Allahi fawqa aydeehim (Qur'an: 48:10)

['Lo! those who swear allegiance unto thee (Muhammad), swear allegiance only unto Allah. The Hand of Allah is above their hands. (Qur'an, 48:10)]

Wa man yatawalla Allaha warasoolahu waallatheena amanoo fa-inna hizba Allahi humu alghaliboona (Qu'ran, 5:56)

[And whoso taketh Allah and His messenger and those who believe for guardian (will know that), lo! the party of Allah, they are the victorious.’ (5:56).]

Yawma la yanfaAAu malun wala banoona
Illa man ata Allaha biqalbin saleemin
Waozlifati aljannatu lilmuttaqeena
(Qur'an, Surah Ash-Shu’ara (26):88-90)
[The day when wealth and sons avail not (any man)
Except him who comes to Allah with a heart free (from evil).
And the garden shall be brought near for those who guard (against evil),
(Quran, Ash-Shu’ara (26):88-90)]

Qad aflaha man zakkaha (Quran, Ash-Shams (91):9)

Hazrat Mawlana Jalauddin Rumi referred to the Prophet as counseling Hazrat 'Ali to follow the direction of the Pir or Spiritual Guide:
 

"A friend is needed; travel not the road alone,
Take not thy own way through this desert!
Whoso travels this road alone
Only does so by aid of the might of holy men."
