That heart which possesses [The Real] Fervor, it needs no guide,
As [water of heavy rain] leads to the river without any guide,
The desired Ka'ba, even if is at a thousand years journey, but when the Fervor (Shauq) is the guide,
Even the longest journeys shrink to half a step.
Further, Fervor (Shauq) is of two kinds. (One is) the Fervor of Haq (Truth) through which one reaches the Ruh of the Noble Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and the Obedience (and servitude). Second is the Fervor of Baatil by which the Nafs is all over in lewdness and shame. Moreover, the Fervor of Qalb, through (through) which the everlasting life is achieved. In addition (the word), Shauq (Fervor) has three letters of alphabet: Sheen, Wao and Qaaf. From the letter Sheen is desired the witness of martyrdom. And from the letter Wao is meant the awareness with the conditions (Ahwaal) of the Marifat of Lord and by letter Qaaf is implied killing-Nafs. The Fervor of this kind is the Fervor of Divine and Slaughterer of Sacrifice. That Fervor that is not endowed with these calibers, it is the Fervor of Satan. Fervor is the raiment of Shariyat and Shahadat (martyrdom) and shrinks its hand from those things that are forbidden by God and the Prophet of God Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and the Faqeer is endowed with Taufeeq in the Marifat of Lord through the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat).
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
The Name Allah is a Pure thing, which stays only on that place, which is Pure.
And Rijat is not encountered in a Dawat endowed with these calibers but instead the Eternal Wisaal is experienced.
SHARAH OF QALB
The Qalb is an enormously big Wilayat (domain) and a great realm. Both-the-Worlds including the entire creations can come inside the Qalb but the Qalb cannot come inside Both-the-Worlds and the gaze of Allah Almighty is not upon Both-the-Worlds but the Qalb is the focus of the gaze of Allah.
