In 1586 he became a monk in the Monastery of Mor Hananyo near Mardin, where he was ordained a deacon the following year by the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch Ignatius David II Shah. In 1595, Hidayat was ordained bishop and in 1597 was consecrated Maphrian by Ignatius Pilate I and patriarch later that year upon his death.
