The murîd مريد is the Seeker, one who walks a spiritual path of any kind. Literally, the word translates as “the one who wants, who wills”.
Interestingly, al-Murîd (source of Will) is also one of the 7 fundamental divine Attributes said to have manifested in the seven great prophets, in this case Jesus.
