After the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) departed from this world his Sunnah was assumed and practised by many elite Sahabah, on the authority of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). These eminent Sahabah included Hazrat Abu-Bakr Siddiq Radhi Allaho Anho & Hazrat Ali Radhi Allaho Anho and before they departed they also nominated their successful students to carry on this Sunnah. Thus this tradition has been passed down from one generation to the next through an authentic chain of Friends of Allah the Auliya (saints).This chain is known as a Silsilah and varies according to the Sufi order.
The representation of the silsilah (chain) is referred to as the shajara (tree). This traces back the chain of transmission to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
The Shajara is recited on all spiritual gatherings of the Tariqa.
In the Qur’an, Almighty Allah ((subhanahu wa ta’ala) says about Bai’at (vow of allegiance):
“Verily, those who Swear Allegiance unto thee, O Muhammad , in truth Swear Allegiance to Allah: The Hand of Allah is over their hands: then anyone who violates his oath, does so to the harm of his own soul, and anyone who fulfils what he has covenanted with Allah,- Allah will soon grant him a great Reward.”
Holy Qur’an 48:10
