I show him the pomp and glitter of Dunya (World) in every shade and odor and in every form and I cause him enticed by the inclinations [of deceit and scheming] so that he may offer votives and charities and [the Outwardly] lure and glitter of the Dram (or drachma) of Dunya (World) should last prevailing".
Hazrat Pir Qaddas-Allahu Sirru-hul Aziz asked him that: "O Damned! Who, is your opinion is your worst enemy?" Iblees said that: "Three persons are my severest enemies who [all the time] fire arrows on my soul:
1. The Aalim-Aamil, who enkindles the candle of Ilm in the world.
2. The Faqeer Kaamil, who kills either me or my brother - the Nafs-e-Ammara, with the swords the Zikr of Allah [and] the Marifat of Lord.
3. The benevoulent person, who cuts off both of my hands with the knife of the benevolence as I clutch both hands of the benevoulent person in order to stop him in giving to the needy [but when he gives, both of my hands are cut away]".
[Thus,] the Ulema-e-Aamil and [the Kaamil] Faqeers are the waves of the River of the Marifat of Lord and being generous is such a noble caliber, which always unifies (one) with Lord.
The Qadiri (Sufi) Order is such Order that if any other asserts claim for its equality with it with respect to the highness of Martaba, faces humiliation [at the end] because all have received the Beneficence through [this very (Sufi) Order of] Qadiri. All that, which one gained here, could not get it from anywhere else!
Through the Qadiri (Sufi) Order, the treasuries of Secrets are got [by the Seekers] without Riyazat and profusion is received without effort. It makes them the Masters of benefaction and frees them of the Course of the Kashf and Karamaat.
