Lo! [O True-Seeker!] The Ilm, Faqar, the Haleem (The forbearing one), Hilm (Forbearance) and the munificence of Khulq (tremendous nature and conduct) and seeing the face of the Benefactor, is the heritage of the Holy Messengers (of Allah) Alaihimus-Salaam and is the extraordinary virtue of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam whereas the world of niggardliness, vanity and harshness is the heritage of Kuffaar like the Pharaoh, Nimrood, Hamaan and Shaddad.
How surprising it is that you are practicing the bad way of the Kuffaar and have given up the heritage of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. Aalim of the Ulema is he, who is the Aulia-Allah and the Aulia-Allah are those, who are Ulema.
Those Ulema, who bear these four signs of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, they are the Heirs of Prophets Alaihimus-Salaam and are the guides otherwise they are ostentatious. These are not worthy to be trusted upon as they detrimental. The first sign is this that such person should follow the Akhlaaq of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, secondly he should divorce Dunya (World) and should be absolutely free of greed, and thirdly he should be free of jealousy and fourthly he should be a benefiter for the Muslims. That person, who does not practice upon these virtues, he is not Aalim-Aamil but instead the parable of such Aalim is like that donkey, which has laden itself in order to earn worldly livelihood. The seeker of Dunya (World) is spoiled and smitten. It is not admissible even seeing the face of such seeker of Dunya (World). One should say Istaghfaar a hundred times against this!
And the Faqar should also have four virtues:
1. One should be patient
2. One should keep steadfast (and persistent) till his death
3. One should remain watchful against the Devil Nafs and worldly desires
4. One should always remain busy in the Zikr of Lord.
The Course of Faqar is the Waseela while the Course of Ilm is Fazeelat. Is Waseela better or Fazeelat? Outwardly, Dunya (World) is Fazeelat and Inwardly Waseela is the Fazeelat. In the Next World God Almighty will be the Waseela. What is the difference between Waseela and Fazeelat? Murshid is Waseela who does the job of barrier against one's committing explicit sins and rather he does not let one to do sins. Thus, the Waseela for Hazrat Yusuf Alaihis-Salaam (Joseph) proved to be a barrier. And Fazeelat is advice.
