ANSWER

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Wa alaikumussalam wa Rahmathu Allahi wa Barakathu hu

Recite Salawat on Prophet:
Allahumma Swalli Ala Muhammadin Wa Ala Aali Muhammadin Wa Sallim-1000X everyday…

Qadiriya is hard route, with very big riyadah and so on…

But Naqshbandi Wayis Middle Path, not too extreme or not too easy..

And this Tarikat is Ummu Tarikat (Mother of All Ways)..

I am not saying this because, I am following this Tarikat.

but because from the True References…

you can see that Imam Ghazzali’s first Shaykh Was Abu Ali Al Farmadi (Q.S) from him, 80% of knowledge in Ihya Uloomiddin is received from Sayyiduna Abu Ali Ibn Muhammad Al Farmadi (Q.S)

It is mentioned in the Preface of Ihya Uloomiddin..

Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Q.S)received Blessings *Tabarruk” and Bayat from Shaykh Abu Yaqub Yusuf Al-Hamadani (Q.S) when Shaykh was a young boy, during his visit to Shaykh Hamadani at Baghdad, it is mentioned in Ibn Hajar Al Hythami’s-A Shafi Mazhab scholar (Q.S) book “AL Fatwa Al Hadisiyya

All other Tarikat you see today are derived from Naqshbandi and Qadiri lineage,
All other Tarikat meet somehow in the lineage of Qadiri and the founder of Qadiri way-Shaykh Muhyiddin Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Q.S) meet his spritual lineage with early Naqshbandi Master Shaykh Abu Yaqub Yusuf Al Hamadani (Q.S)

And this is the only way which take direct lineage from Abu Bakar Siddiq (A.S), Because after Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salamall other Sahaba and Khulafa Rashideen have taken Bayat from Abu Bakar Siddiq (Aalaihissalam)

And this way also take lineage from 12 Imams from the line of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S)

Some people of other tarikat out of context and without understanding the Haqiqat of the Awliya, takes out of context some words and confuse people!.

For example: “Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani said: “All Awliya are under my feet”
It refer to his time only..

Shaykh Ahmad Tijani (Q.S) said that all Awliya from the time of Adam (A.S) until last day is under his feet”
Allah knows best, some people out of extreme love of Awliya and to promote their way quote such words , most likely it is not true!

Because:
All Prophets are also Awliya (Saints/Friends of Allah)!, But All Saints are not Prophet or Messengers of Allah!
This is very important point!

And one more thing to add to this: Abu Bakar, Umar,Usman , Ali, Hassan, Hussain, Imam Mahdi and other Imams of Ahlul Bayt (peace be up on them all) , they all are Awliya of Allah…

The two “Deputation” of Allah on Earth is: Prophet-hood (Nubuwath) and Saint-hood (Wilayah)

We do not believe, Shaykh Ahmad Tijani or Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al-Jilani is greater than Abu Bakar (R.A) Umar (R.A), Usman (R.A), Ali (R.A), Hassan (R.A), Hussain (R.A), Imam Mahdi (A.S), in Wilaya (Saint hood)

So all agree that after Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam), those came after him (in Khilafat and in Imamath) are high Saints (awliya Allah)

It is also narrated in a Hadith that: excluding Prophets, the Iman of Abu Bakar Siddiq (R.A) weigh than all other people’s Iman put together!!!

So don’t follow those Sufis, who make false claim in their books, which the one they attribute that rank to, actually did not have made such false claim…

Because they might know this Saints  only from books, and the books may be written years after the time of the Shaykh…

Haqq (Truth) is clear from false hood (Bathil)

May Allah guide us and forgive us…

Wa alaikumussalam wa Rahmathu Allahi wa Barakathu hu

Some Ahadith:

THE HIGH SAINTS AND THE FORTY ABDALS

Rasulullah (saw) said, “The best of my Ummah in every generation
will be five hundred, and forty Abdal. Thse five hundred will never
decrease in number, nor the forty. Every time one of the five
hundred dies Allah(swt) will substitute with another, and so He will
of the forty. The people said, “Tell us something about their
deeds.” He replied, “They will pardon those who wrong them, will do
good to those who do them evil, and will equitably spend of what
Allah gives them.”

[Abu Nu’aym, narrated by Ibn Umar RA]

THE FORTY ABDALS

Rasulullah (saw) said, “Forty of my followers will always be on
earth whose heart will be like the heart of Ibrahim (as). It is
because of them that Allah (swt) will withhold punishement from the
people of the earth. They are called “Al-Abdal”. They would have
attained that status not through pryers, fasting or charity.” The
Companions asked: “How else would they have attained that status?”
He replied: “Through generosity and sincerity towards the Ummah.”

[Tabrani, narrated by Ibn Mas’ud RA]

Baya (Oath Of Allegiance)To Imam Mahdi (A.S)

Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem

Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) with Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S)

Sahibu Saif Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) with Sulthanul Awliya Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S)

Baya (Initiation) is the “Oath Of Allegiance” is a Tradition (Sunnah) of Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) And It is obligatory for a Muslim to follow a “Righteous Spiritual guide” (Imam/Shaykh) which is mentioned in both Quran and Hadith Sharif!.

Hazret Imam Ali Ibn Abi Taalib (A.S)  saying :

أذا المرء ربّي نفسه بمراده        لقد شاد بنيانا علي غير أسّه “

ومن لم تربّيه الرجال وتسقه      لبانا لهم قد درّ من ثدى قدسه 

فذاك لقيط ماله نسبة الولا        ولن يتعدّى غير ابناء جنسه

(30 قلا دة الجواهر )

“When someone make tarbiyyath himself without a Shaykh, it is like he constructing a building without the foundation!,Those who do not have tarbiyath of shyakhs will not get the spiritual wisdom coming from Allah like a fountain of wisdom coming through the Shaykhs ,thus he will not reach in lofty stations  of faith. He will be like illegitimate children who got someone to be called as a father!”

(Qalaidul Jawahir 30)

Baya (Initiation) is made to Imam directly or to a Shaykh of Tasawwuf (authentic Sufi Way/Tarikat) or to a deputy/representative of a Shaykh!.

When my beloved Shaykh Sahibu Saif Waliyullahi (Saint of Allah-Awliya Allah) Shaheed Hazret Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) visited India and our home in 2009, July-August. In August 1,2009 a Zikr Majlis was held in my home. And after that Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al Kibrisi Hazret gave bayat to those who sought it.

And said to them: “This is the Bayat for Imam Mahdi alaihissalam, worry not, you are safe!” Indeed, there is a lesson for those who understand Awliya Allah and their Way! Shaykh Abdul Kerim is Sahibu Saif, and Descendant of Prophet Muhammad (Ahlul Bayt) from being the lineage of Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani Al-Hassani Al-Hussaini (Q.S)

The Grand Shaykh of the Naqshbandi Haqqani Sufi Way, Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Al-Haqqani (Q.S) mentions that Shaykh Abdul Kerim Al-Kibrisi (Q.S) is one of the deputies of Imam Mahdi alaihissalam!

The Awaited Imam of the Muslim Nation is: Sahibu Zaman Imam Muhammad Al-Mahdi alaihissalam. Therefore it is important for Muslims to make Bayat to a deputy of Imam Mahdi alaihissalam or a representative of Shaykh’s of Tasawwuf who is related to the line of Ahlul Bayt!.

ALLAH says in Quran to follow Imams of the times:
Quran 4:59. O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you.

Quran warns about those who accept some from the Book and reject some other!

And ALLAH again says, those who do not follow the righteous Imams of the Main group of Muslims, they have no guide!!!
Quran 25:43 Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
Quran 45:23Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

Musnad Ahmed- volume 4 page 96 
حدثنا عبد الله حدثنى أبى ثنا أسود بن عامر انا أبو بكر عن عاصم عن أبى صالح عن معاوية قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من مات بغير امام مات ميتة جاهلية

Narrated Abdullah narrated my father narrated Aswad ibn amir narrated Abu Bakr from Asim from Abu salih from Muawya he said: Rasool allah(S.A.W) said:
“whoever died without an imam he dies a death of jahilyyah(Pre-Islamic period of ignorance)”

Moreover when Imam Mahdi (A.S) and Isa alaihissalam comes, people must follow them!

Some people claim that they follow the Salaf Salih, but they don’t follow any Particular Imams of the time of Salafs!. But they say that Imam Mahdi (A.S) is a ruler, so we make Bayat to ruler (Ameerul Mumineen)!.

But Mahdi (A.S) is known as “Imam”, not Ameer Mahdi, but Imam Mahdi!, Why?

Because his first and foremost duty is to guide and aid (17:80) whole world in to the True Path!, Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam did not came himself as “Ameer” first!, but came as “Imam” Spiritual leader, as Last Prophet!, Later only Islam established rule on earth!. The first thing Prophet did was “purification of the heart”

Some people today making false Jihad witout Tasawwuf (Purification), they are wrong!.

Allah’s Quran: The Infallible Word says: “Indeed he Succeeded, those who purified their heart”

This is why all this false Jihadi groups are never victorious to establish Khilafa, rather they only make  a huge mess around the world!

Therefore we do not accept any Shari’ah Law to be established without establishing the Khalifa!

Because Khalifa is the head of Muslim, Shari’ah without Khalifa bring a “Mixing truth with false hood” Which is Prohibited by Allah and is  an attribute of Munafiq (Hypocrite) to mix truth with falsehood (without Khalifa to rule with Shari’ah)!!!. There for Shari’ah without Khalifa will only bring Talibanism!, neither Muslims nor non-Muslims will be able to get out of the troubles from that mess!!!

Means, you are (eg today’s Egyptian Jahiliya society) trying to Mix Shari’ah (Truth) with False hood (Constitution)!

The Purpose of Baya is to leave corrupted people and to accompany Truthful and righteous people, who are engaged with Remembrance of Allah (Zikr Allah)!

As Zikr Groups are  known as “Garden of Paradise” in a well known Hadith narrated in Sunan Tirmidi

Sufi Orders are Assemblies of Zikr. Allah says:  “Fear God and accompany Trustworthy people” [9:119]

All Ulema and even those who say we don’t need Imams just quran and hadith is enough, they even will follow Imam Mahdi (A.S)

On the authority of Tamim Al-Dari that the prophet said:
“Religion is sincerity”. We said: “To whom?” He said: “To Allah and His Book, and His messenger, and to the leaders of the Muslims and their common folk”.
narrated by Muslim 

AND ALLAH IS ASKING MUSLIMS TO SEEK SUCH HELPING IMAMS (AWLIYA ALLAH,SAINTS OF ALLAH) IN THE WAY OF TRUTH

17:80. Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid [me].”

The Hadith from Sahih Al Bukhari Clarifies what Quran says in the above verse:
Sahih al-Bukhar(English Translation)-9.377:Narrated `Abdullah bin Dinar: `Abdullah Bin `Umar wrote to`Abdul Malik bin Marwan, swearing allegiance to him: ‘I swear allegiance to you in that I will listen and obey what is in accordance with the Laws of Allah and the Tradition of His Apostle as much as I can.’

Shaykh Abdul Qadir Al Jilani (Peace be up him), the Master of Saints again saying:

وليتحقق بان الله عز وجل أجر العادة بان يكون في الارض شيخ و مريد وصاحب و مصحوب و تابع ومتبوع من لدن أدم الي ان تقوم الساعة

 (الغنية 280)

Predecessors, Preceded,Followers, followed, Shaykh, Murid, all these traditions are the systems which Allah implemented up on mankind, since the time of Adam alaihissalam. (Ghunya 280/2)

وشيخ التربية لا يخلو الزمان منه أبدا 

(الفتوحات الالهية290 )

“There was no time, without the Shaykh of Tarbiyya” (Al Futuhatul Ilahiyya 290)

Imam Tawbi (radiyallahu Anhu) says: “

لا ينبغي للعالم ولو تبحّر في العلم حتي صار واحد أهل زمانه أن يقنع بما علمه وأنما الواجب عليه الأجتماع بأهل الطريق ليدلّوه علي الطريق المستقيم -تنوير القلوب 

“Even if someone  gain ocean like knowledge and become greatest scholar of his time and none  is there grater than him in knowledge, he cannot be satisfied with that knowledge. But it is obligatory on him to live with the Shaykhs of tasawwuf to know and get the right path” (Tanvirul Quloob 404)

وقد جرت العادة وجرّبت بأنّ التطهير لازم عن النجاسات المعنوية والأدناس الطوية والخضوع والخشوع في الصلاة وسائر العبادات بمشهد أن تعبدالله كأنّك تراه وان لم تكن تراه فانّه يراك المعبّر عنه بمقام الإحسان وهذا لا يتيسّر في الغالب للطلاب الاّ بيد شيخ عارف كامل خبير بعلاج هذه الامراض ولوحفظ المبتلي كتباعديدا لا يستغني بها عن التربية علي يد مثل هذا الشيخ ليخرجه من رعوة النفس الأمّارت بالسوء ودسائسها الخفية—

  الدرر المرضية  

“To purify yourself from the impurity and dirty of the heart and to worship Allah described as Ihsan-as though you could see Him, for though you cannot see Him yet He sees you, to do the prayers and deeds as mentioned above, it is not easy to reach in such station without the help and support of a Shaykh-who is a knower of God (Arif) and to gain such level of worship the knowledge of the book is not enough, even though you studied 100s of books. You need“tarbiyyath” of a Shaykh to purify and cure you from such sickeness. That Shaikh free him from the unseen sickness of the heart and mind.

(Addurarul Mardiyya13)

SINCE OUR DEATH CAN HAPPEN ANY TIME, RATHER THAN WAITING, THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE A SHAYKH, IT IS BEST FOR “THEIR HEREAFTER LIFE, TO MAKE BAYA NOW, UNLESS THEY ARE HAPPY TO DIE AS “JAHILIYA”!
