IN DESCRIPTION OF FANAA-FI-SHAIKH AND FANAA-FI-MUHAMMAD AND FANAA-FI-ALLAH JALLA SHAANAHU
Three Maratib are of the Mureed:
1. Fanaa-Fi-Shaikh (Destroyed in Shaikh): When he does the Visualization of the face of the Shaikh (Spiritual Guide), wherever he gazes upon, only the Shaikh is seen.
2. Fanaa-Fi-Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam (Destroyed in Muhammad): When he does the Visualization of the form of the Name Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, he gives up all that, which distract from Allah. Wherever he gazes upon, the Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam is seen by him.
3. Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah): When (he) does the Visualization of the Name Allah, the Nafs dies totally. Wherever he gazes upon, (he) becomes honored with countless Tajalliyaat of the Anwaar of the Name Allah Bi Allah. This is what is called Lamakaan. Giving resemblance of Allah Almighty with Maqaam (Station) or Makaan (place) is the cause of Kufr and Shirk.
[O True-Seeker!] Be Illuminated that three kinds of the Maratib are of the Qurb, which are achieved through the three kinds of Visualizations: Fanaa-Fi-Shaikh (Destruction in Shaikh), Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destruction in Allah) and Fanaa-Fi-Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam.
[O Real-Seeker!] Be enlightened that all creatures have come into being from the Noor of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and the Noor of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has taken birth from the Noor of Lord. That Murshid, who does not Drown the Seeker in the Noor of Wahdaniyat and the Ocean of Rabubiyat of the Hazoor of Muhammad in the first day, he is not eligible for the title of "Murshid". With the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), on the very first day, the Tazkiya of Noor of the Nafs, Tasfiya of Noor of Qalb and the Tajalliya of Noor of Ruh and the Tajalliya of Noor of Sirr of the Seeker is accomplished. The aggregate of all the four (kinds) of Noor return to the origin after becoming one and unified because:
Everything returns unto its origin.
