Such person is called 'Ghaus Qutub Nafsaani'. There is also such a person, who travels from township to township, frontier to frontier, linked to linked and parted to parted (Mutaliqa Ba Mutaliqa and Alaihidah); for twelve years with different names. He is called the 'Ghaus Qutub Dahqaani'. However, he is unaware of the Tauheed of the Divine, Qurb of Didaar. There is also such a person, who attains the Purity of Qalb in twelve years. This is called the Station of Tareeqat. Thirdly is the Station of Ghaus Qutub Tairaani (flying) who travel the seventy thousand Stations in a mile above the Arsh which is a journey of seventy thousand years. These Ghaus Qutub are the travelers and sightseers over air and can come and go to either side in Tarfa Zad. However, they have not yet set foot in Tauheed. These too are the Maratib of the carnal desires based on the desires of the Nafs and are far away of the Didaar of God. Somewhere a person remains Absorbed in Muraqiba of twelve years. It feels as if he is dead. Seeker does not take him by himself. This is the Station of the Haqeeqat that [you] know [the difference] of the Haq (Truth) and Baatil but (you) cannot bestow the honor of Didaar upon your Seekers. He is called 'Ghaus Qutub Roohani' (Spiritual) that he, still, is locked in the Self-conceit (Ananiyat) of his Kashf and Karamaat and is most far from the Didaar of Lord. Rest, twelve years pass away in killing -Nafs and finding Truths, circumstances and occurrence of the past, present and future. Even these Maratib are also far distant from the Marifat of Lord. Such person is still short of the Qurb of Allah the Wisaal of Lord. This is all reverie (of a stupid). All this Riyazat and Mujahida, and forty-eight years which were spent in the attainment of these four Stations, even then, still he is keen for Maratib and Degrees. Faqeer never gazes upon these cheap and the lowest Maratib.
1. (With) the Marifat of Sifaat the spectator of Degrees (Marifat Sifaat Tamaasha Been Darjaat)
2. The Seer of the Mushahida of the Marifat of Lord. Getting the Marifat of the honor of Meeting; becoming a full time permanent employee of Lord. All these things are not the attainment of the Marifat of the Superior most Essence the Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah) with Almighty Haq.
The Murshid-e-Kaamil is (but) that person, who shows the spectacle of the entire Stations, Degrees and the entire creatures of the Eighteen Thousand Realms so that there should not last any remorse in the heart of the Seeker.
