Often some Seekers, say under carnal desires that offering these a few Optional prayers (Nawafil) is the practice of the widows and keeping Optional Fasts is [like] saving bread and going for Hajj (Muslim Pilgrimage) is the sightseeing of the world. Winning hearts [doing sympathy] is the action of the men. On the other hand, this Faqeer (Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe) says that Bringing others' heart in one's fist [doing sympathy and consoling] is the practice of the Incomplete people and [similarly] traveling in the world and knowing it is the practice of the Imperfect people whereas causing Fanaa of one's self, and reaching Ba Ain and becoming Ain-Ba-Ain Drowned in Tauheed of the Essence is the task of the Mardaan and beholding Allah Almighty is the Martaba of Ahwaal in the opinion of some people and it is Martaba of Intiqaal near some people whereas it is Martaba of Wisaal in the opinion of others. And the Aalim-Bi-Allah and the Aashiq Waasil Wali-Allah takes the Mushahida with the Taufeeq of Lord and sees the Fanaa in Baqaa. This is real thing that the relation of Jamiyat is with 'becoming Drowned in the Jamaal of Lord' which cannot be Salb (Disqualified or divested) and it is everlasting thing, which can never be Salb (divested). Another thing is the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) which is the Martaba of the Anwaar of the Didaar of Lord.
Second is the Ilm of Dawat, which is called Riding of the graves like a knight. Further, it is individual-obligation on the Seeker that he should first acquire the Ilm and then should Demand for Lord. In order to attain the higher and sublime Maratib, Allah Almighty says "Therefore, flee unto Allah (51:50) but you have misunderstood it as "therefore flee from Allah" [which is the silliness of mankind]
In addition, it is also individual-obligation on the True-Seeker that he should keep on the Shariyat day and night and should select that, for what Shariyat orders and should give up that individual-obligation which the Shariyat forbids. The Nafs, Dunya (World) and Satan are against the Shariyat and the Holy Quran. Or in other meanings, the Shariyat is this that he should strictly follow the practice of the Noble Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and should take himself in the Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam in the Inward and should always remain inside the Hazoori of the Majlis and should never be disobedient to the Deen of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam in every condition. This Shariyat of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam is setting step with Istiqamat (Steadfastness (and persistence)) in the Outward with Taufeeq of Lord".
