The author of this book [Hazrat Sultan Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe]; a recluse in the Sanctuary (Court) of the Jalaal and Jamaal of the Haa Huwiyyat of Allah Almighty; Drowned in the Mushahida of the Absolute Essence; honored by the eye of the Favor of the Rightful Deity of Worship, that is, the Entity of the Witnessed; swinging in the cradle of the Divine Pride of "I am Pure and My Splendor is Great"; wearing the crown of Marifat and the Absolute Wahdat at the Centre of the Station of Respect; rolling the mantle of refinement and Purity under his armpit at the Station of "You are Me, and I am You"; and honored with the title of Haq from Haq; the Sirr of the Essence of Yaa Hu; Faqeer Bahu - May his Secret be sanctified, surname A'waan, resident of Qala' Shor [Kot] May Allah keep this place safe from all dissensions and oppressions, states a few words of the researches (and realizations) of Faqar in exposition of the Station of the Essence of the Huwiyyat and gives the teaching of the deepest meanings in its apparent meanings and the most extraordinary interpretation of the Verse: "My Mercy embraces everything" (7:156). The Arif e Waasil, at whatsoever direction, raises his gaze to gaze upon, nothing besides the Didaar [of that Essence of Haq] is seen by him. (He) erases all the impressions of the Outsiders and of the Self-conceit from his body so much so that (he) unifies with the Absolute Essence.
Be enlightened! When the Noor of Ahad, [after emanating out] of the bridal chamber of the privacy of Wahdat, willed to expose in the realm of multiplicity, it casted a commotion with the manifestation of its Pure Splendor. Both the Worlds rushed to its Candle of Beauty and burnt like moths [,became Aashiq], then [the Noor of the Essence], after putting on the veil of the Meem of Ahmad transformed into the appearance of Ahmad and with of the abundance of emotions and devotions shook seven times upon itself as a result of which came into being, on the tree of the Miraat-ul-Yaqeen, the Seven Arwah of Faqeers, all serene, Fanaa Fi Allah (Destroyed in Allah), Baqaa Bi Allah (Reborn with Allah), completely Drowned into the Thought of His Essence, all in the likeness of kernel without crust, Drowned into the Ocean of the Jamaal, Seventy Thousand Years earlier than the creation of Adam Alaihis-Salaam. They, since the Azal till the Abad, neither saw anything else except the Essence of Haq, nor did they listen anything besides Allah [that is, they never heard any voice except the Call of Allah of the Day of Alast]. They have the everlasting eternal Wisaal in the Ocean of the Sanctuary (Court) of the Majesty. They, at times, wearing the Noori Bulks, have strived in veneration and transcendence, [and] "at times, drop in the Ocean and at times, the Ocean in the drop" [is their similitude] and the robe of the Beneficence of the Fazal, that is, "When Faqar reaches unto its extremity (and entirety), that is Allah," is over them. Thus, the crown of the eternal existence and the infinite Honor is possessed by them. Faqeer is not left with any need either of his Sustainer or of His outsiders.
