But when he remembers the Outsiders of Allah, since this remembrance is temporary, therefore the Zikr of all other things besides Allah Almighty and thoughts about these are contrary and conflicting with the human Qalb and the original caliber of the heart and distort the original caliber of heart and real natural disposition of the heart. And moreover, for the heart, the remembrance of the Outsiders acts like a Hijaab of cloud and blur against the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) for heart. The quadruped like Nafs, by remaining in the demand for his earthly corporeal things of eating and drinking and other material necessaries all the time keep on in the remembrance of these material things and the Outsiders of Allah and continues sending the remembrance of all these things of necessities and the carnal desires alike and worldly Khatraat to the heart. Thus, when a secret and unnoticeable conflict of the remembrance of these stranger elements takes place with the original caliber and the real lifeblood of the thoughts of heart which is the Zikr of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), these make the real natural caliber of the Zikr of Allah contaminated and offended as a result and do not let the Zikr of Allah be effective in the heart. So, the philosophy of the method of the Habs-e-Damm and the Paas-e-Anfaas is this that the Zaakir and the Saalik should sit like a watchman and guardian on the gate of heart that is the breath and respiration and should not let any Stranger Outsider of Allah that is the undesired thoughts pass through the heart and he should keep this only the passage of the Zikr of the Rightful Owner of the chamber that is, Allah Almighty as a Saalik has said:
Nothing can stay in my heart besides the Beloved,
There is no opportunity for the Outsider to gasp in the Sanctum of the King,
In my heart such a King of the kings is displaying His Beauty,
That He will not be able to be contained in the land and sea if He decides to install His Camp outside,
Your body, even if becomes as thin as hair is,
It will even then serve as Hijaab for the Spirit,
There should be no room even of the size of a hair between the Aashiq and the Mashooq,
The Account of many a thousand sane people is possible in the Decision of the Great Assembly,
But for the Account of a trice of the Aashiq would not be possible in hundreds of Great Assemblies!
[*Hazrat Khawaja Moeen ud Deen Chishti Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe]
Similitude of the Zikr of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) and thoughts of the Outsiders of Allah is as if there is a pond or water pool in a city containing sweet and pure water which is automatically filled by a water spring inside it but the impure and dirty water of the city sewage falls in it. Then it is sure the due to the mixing of the Outside impure and polluted water, the pure water of this pool will turn impure, blurry, deadly and stingy. If this impure and polluted sewage water is let fall in the pond for some period like this and it is not stopped, it is certain that its unclean sediment and mud will settle like a layer in the bottom of the pool and will seal and shut the original springs and water outlets inside pool and in place of a pool of fresh and sweet water it will become a pond of dirty and deadly water. People drinking this water will become ill and dead. The same condition is of the human heart. The Noor of the Name Allah and the Zikr of Allah is like the original spring of the Elixir of Life in the heart and the commemoration of the Outsiders and the sensual thoughts is a substance of darkness and shadows which mixes in the pure Elixir of Life through the channels of the Five Senses like a impure and deadly water and makes the Zikr of Allah which is the Elixir of Life to become polluted, blurry and sealed and closed in due course. Thus, when the outlets and vents of the heart are when kept safe against the channels of these Stranger Thoughts through the Habs-e-Damm and the Paas-e-Anfaas and it is let free on its own caliber and the natural disposition of the Zikr of Allah, then it is sure that in such heart burst the Inwardly and Invisible springs of the Noor of Allah and on such Zaakir, the Mysteries of Haq turn open.
Restrain your eyes, ears and lips from the Outsiders of Allah,
Then you laugh at us if you do not find the Secret of Haq!
