He either is a Rafizi, or Kharijis or Hypocrite Zandeeq [irreligious] and some Muqallad persons say that they have the Caliphate in every (Sufi) Order like: Naqashbandi (Sufi) Order, Soherwardi (Sufi) Order, Chishti (Sufi) Order and Qadiri (Sufi) Order. Those who say this, are [totally] liars [however] he, who has the Caliphate of the Qadiri (Sufi) Order; he is never needy and dependent on any other (Sufi) Order; he is the Laa-Yuhtaaj [because] O wise! Listen [attentively] that what concern a masculine lion will have with the sincerity of a jackal and a vixen? [That is, a masculine lion has no want of the help of a jackal and fox].
[THE INITIAL MARATIB OF THE MASTER OF THE QADIRI (SUFI) ORDER]
This is because of the reason that the beginning of the Qadiri (Sufi) Order has five [such] Uloom that can be [rather] called [the five] treasures: for example:
1. The Ilm of the Glorious Quran with Tafseer and the Ilm of the Hadis.
2. The Ilm of Dawat that all the time the Takbeer (Allahu Akbar) is uttered [through his tongue].
3. The Ilm of the Kimiya-gaze that (he) turns the Dead Heart to be Living through a single gaze and makes (him) the Arif-Bi-Allah because his body possesses the efficiency of the Akseer.
4. The Ilm of the Taseer of the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) : by this, he gets Roshan-Zamiri.
5. He becomes able and domineers upon his Nafs through the Ilm of Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destruction in Allah).
Thus, the Qadiri Murshid after giving all the five Ilm to the Seeker leads him to choose the Faqar-e-Ikhtiyari. After this, the Seeker of Qadiri (Sufi) Order, after taking bath (Ghusal) from Dunya (World) and doing the ablution (Wuzu) from the Hereafter, offers two Rakat Assalaat (Prayers) [to pay thanks to Allah Almighty] with such a sequence (and frequency) that he unifies with the exercises (of preoccupation) of Lord. In the first Rakat, he reads the Words (of Revelation) of Allah: "and whosoever puts his trust in Allah, He will suffice him" (65:3)and in the second Rakat, he reads these Words (of Revelation) of Allah: "Allah is Sufficient as Trustee" (4:81) and "Allah has not assigned unto any man two hearts within his body" (33:4) and brings about the Fanaa with humbleness in his bowing (Ruku) and prostrating (Sajda postures) and in the sitting posture (Qa'da), he reads this countless:

ABOUT IKHTIYARI AND IZTARARI FAQAR:
Faqar is of two kinds: One is Faqar-e-Iztarari, that is, Nigun Saar (that falls down straight) against which refuge in Allah has been sought in the Hadis. This is that Faqar which is imposed by Allah on a person due to his wretchedness or because of his wrong doings. Such Faqeer begs on every door and cries and does a shameful act by begging from others. This Faqar is that which is not chosen by a person with his will. Other is Faqar-e-Ikhtiyari in which is chosen by will by the high-spirited Faqeers who choose Faqar in spite of the fact that they possess power, authority, the pomp of the world, power and pomp but they prefer Faqar and become Dervish in order to win the gladness (and accreditation) of God. They are not compelled by worldly circumstances but they choose Faqar as their own will. This is that Faqar on which Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has taken pride.
