And this same Outwardly Assalaat, when is offered with the best effort to pay its right, the form of Inwardly Assalaat (Prayers) is generated by it. The Outward Assalaat along with its all essentials is like milk and the human body is like a pot of clay and human heart is like blender (stir) by which milk is prepared for skim. Now, he who has got pure milk, has made curd from it and then after pouring it in the pot of his body, kept on moving and stirring the blender of his heart with the Zikr-e-Qalbi and the Hazoor of Heart and continued skimming milk like this, then such person would certainly succeed in achieving Inwardly Assalaat (Prayers) and the butter of the Favorite Assalaat of Hazoor of Heart. And that person, who totally has no milk, what would he skim and from where would he get butter! He who offers Outwardly and Lawful Assalaat, he at least gets this much benefit that even he could not pour pure milk as it was contaminated by some opposite thing or that the curd was not made fine then if butter could not have been got by him and Chaach was also not got nice yet he was successful in getting some ordinary Lassi and Chaach. And as compared to that person who is sluggish and schemer, he remains in profit who says that he gets butter without milk! Encountering Khatraat and Thoughts of the Outsider in Assalaat is like unavoidable affair and that think whose love is dominant, its thoughts often come in heart. Assalaat (Prayers) should be guarded against thoughts of the Outsiders up to maximum what one can. That is why, Takbeer e Tahreema has been made compulsory and Obligation in the start of Assalaat. Because when one said Allahu Akbar that is, Allah is the Greatest then all other elements of the universe are smaller and minor in comparison with Allah Almighty. Hence, all the Thoughts of Outsiders should be dispelled and expelled with the Sword of Allahu Akbar. If case is such, then the Takbeer e Tahreema is valid. Assalaat, if is offered rightly, then truly one starts flying towards Allah Almighty and starts rising and ascending higher in the Inward. That is the reason that the person who offers Assalaat, he, at the time of descending from the ascension of Assalaat and upon returning from the Inwardly and Spiritual Journey, says Salaam on companions on both sides of right and left! In the night of Holy Ascension (Mi'raaj), our Aaqaa e Naamdaar Ahmed e Mukhtaar Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam went towards his Lord.
And, on the way, he saw the different Angels of the seven heavens and the Arsh and the Kursi and the Loh-O-Qalam(the Tablet and Pen) and the sacred spirits of the previous Holy Messengers (of Allah) Alaihimus-Salaam on their respective destinations and Stations that they were busy in worships of different kinds and were engaged in the Zikr Azkaar and Recitations of sundry nature. Some were hymning the extol of Allah in Standing Posture, some were busy in sanctification and veneration of Almighty Haq in Sitting Posture and some had laid their heads in Prostration and were busy in the Praise and Description of the Matchless Beauty of God Almighty. This desired arouse in his heart that if such a comprehensive and complete way of worship may be granted to him and his Ummat which should be the inclusive of all the ways and methods of the worship of the entire Holy Prophets Alaihimus-Salaam, Holy Messengers (of Allah) Alaihimus-Salaam and the entire Muqarrib Angels and all creation of the beginning and the end! The time, when the Holy Prophet had seen the entire Major Revelations of Allah Almighty and entered the Station of 'was (distant) two bows length or seven nearer (53:9)' and got the honor of the Didaar of the Matchless and Unique Anwaar of Allah Almighty, at this time Allah Almighty dressed him in the Robe of Istifayiyat (the Best Selection in all possible Choices) and crowned him with the Crown of Lolaak*** and after granting him with the treasures of the Worlds and the troves of the Welfare of all Quarters, Allah Almighty said:
This day I have perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion Al Islam (5:3)
Then that time, a very Big Blessing, received by him because of these Blessings of the Grace and Beneficence as was cordially desired by him in his heart as per the his all hopes, to him and to his Ummat, this present Assalaat (Prayers) was granted from the Court of His Majesty the Most High with such a comprehensive and complete way of worship which includes in it the different lovely gestures of the entire Angels of the seven heaves, the Arsh, the Kursi and the Loh O Qalam and the variety of the Postures of Obedience like Standing Posture, Bowing Posture, Sitting Postures and Prostration Posture and the different ways of the Praise and Extol of Lord like Tasbeeh and Taqdees, Tahmeed and Tamjeed and Tahleel etcetera are recorded and included. All the creations of the universe like Jamadaat (realm of the inanimate), Nibataat (realm of plants) and Haiwanaat (realm of animals) which have been created by the Qadir the Qayyum have been made busy in His Extol and Praise according to this: 'All that is in the heavens ad all that is in the earth glorifies Allah (62:1).
