All these Maratib, which have been remembered above, are called Wali-Allah, Arif-Bi-Allah, Waasil Aulia-Allah, Ghaus, Qutab, Abdaal, Autaad, Akhyaar etcetera. Every Martaba of these, which have been mentioned, is like the starter of Thirty Letters of Alphabet for the kids to read it repeatedly, the lesson of which is given to them in their childhood.
Hence, what is Faqar and what are the Maratib of Faqar. Faqar is the name of attaining unto the Fardaniyat by Drowning into the River-of-Tauheed. He, who becomes a Fard by Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah), he becomes dominant and Mard for all these Maratib. Moreover, Faqar is not attained unless the Murshid-e-Kaamil Faqeer reinforces (and paves) the Haft-Andaam of the Seeker of Allah through the Seven Exercises of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) and as long as he has not caused his existence nonexistent from existent through the Seven kinds of Tasarrufaat. Later on, he Drowns him into the Anwaar by virtue of which, he becomes completely Drowned in the Noor and becomes [honored] with Didaar [to so much extent] that gazing upon the second person (Outsider) becomes Haraam and carcass for him. That person, who becomes Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah) with such traces (and signs), only he is the Faqeer of Allah. Such person is Conscientious in the exoteric Shariyat and hates Baatil in the Inward. That person, who reaches these Maratib of Faqar, on him twenty thousand rather even more than this Tajalliyaat from the twenty four letters of alphabet of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam ?descend upon because these Mysteries are from the Sirr of the kernel of brain. Such person is called the Maalik-ul-Mulki Faqeer, who stands at the top of the list in Faqar.
Allah Almighty says: My Lord! I am needy of whatever good you send down for me. (28:24)
The Noble Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam said that: Faqar is my pride and Faqar is from me .
Becoming Faqeer is not easy. There are many Secrets hidden in Faqar. The Master of Jamiyat the Fanaa Fi Zaat (Destroyed in the Essence) Faqeer is the one, who has crossed across the miscellaneous Stations and Degrees of the Kashf and Karamaat, which are all deprived of Jamiyat. Only Allah is sufficient; all other things are the worldly desires.
Thus, only he knows the Maratib of Faqar, who has reached unto Faqar; has Tasted the Taste of Faqar; and has chosen (and practiced) Faqar has Ain-Ba-Ain seen the Sultan-ul-Faqar!
