The Bayyath - The Connection, The Pledge of Allegiance, The Initiation
Bismillah ir Rahman ir Raheem
The Bayyath is a conscious confirmation of the connection between the Master and his disciple.
The disciple allows his Sheik and Master to work with him, accepting to be his student and follower, for the sake of his spiritual progress toward his destination. The disciple puts his hand in the hand of the Master or on his stick or coat. Other people can also be connected by putting their right hand on the right shoulder of the person in front of them. The Master says; “Audhu bi’llahi mina shaitani rajim, Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim Inna’lladhina yubai’unaka innama yubayi’una’llah, yadu llahi fauka aydiihim, faman nakatha fa innama yankuthu ‘ala nafsi, wa man aufa’bima’ahada’alayu’llah fasayutihi ajra’athnma.
