The Language of the Future
Sufi Terminology
by Murshid F.A. Ali ElSenossi

Following authority

(Taqlid). Following authority. Man should only ever follow Allah's Authority. The Verifiers, who are the highest category of the friends of Allah, have verified the knowledge gained through following Allah's Authority.

See also: Verifiers
(Al Muhaqqiqun). These great ones form the highest category of friends of Allah. They follow no one's authority because in themselves they have verified and realized [through unveiling and finding], the truth and reality of all things which is Allah, the Real. They are also known as'The People of Unveiling and Finding'.
