When the Shaikh discerns in a Mureed a constant yearning for islaah (spiritual reformation) and steadfastness in this purpose and the Mureed along the Path of Sulook reaches the junction leading up to Allah Ta’ala, he (the Shaikh) bestows the Mantle of Khilaafat-e-Bai’t on the Mureed who is now appointed as the Khalifah of the Shaikh.

The Mureed attains this lofty rank after continuous and regular association and communication, etc. with his Shaikh.
