This Subtlety carries magnanimous vastness, dignity, ability, and Hikmat in it. Same as the kernel and quintessence of the life of the earthly body is the Subtlety of the Nafs, same as this the original kernel and essence of the Nafs is the Subtlety of Qalb. When this Subtlety becomes Living in the body of the Seeker with the Fazal (Grace and bounty) of Allah Almighty and the Faiz (Beneficence) of the Murshid-e-Kaamil, then the Saalik comes out of the Realm of Nasoot and enters the Realm of Malakoot. The Realm of Malakoot is so much vast and wide as compared to the Realm of Nasoot as is our world vast and wide in comparison with the narrow and dark womb of our mother. In short, as is the ratio of the womb of a mother to this material world, the similar ratio is of this material world to the Realm of Nasoot and similar ratio is of the Realm of Nasoot to the Realm of Malakoot. Hence, the abode of the Subtlety of Qalb is the Realm of Malakoot and in this Abode, also live with it the Angels and the Sacred Spirits of the People of Qalb. Its Station is Tareeqat. That is, in Shariyat, the Seeker becomes just the one who is of the People of discussions and talks and the Master of Qeel O Qaal that is, he just relies upon the commemoration and notes of the Calibers and Conditions of his Desired One and the Real beloved and repeatedly listening these, becomes pleased by the promise of the Wasal and Meeting in the day to come after death and consoles his heart by the commemorations of the Reward and Respect from Him, the Garden, Houries and Palaces of Heaven and sits in world awaiting for these but in Tareeqat, the Saalik starts walking towards Allah Almighty in this very world. That is, the one who is of the People of Shariyat, he is the one who have heard whereas the one who is of the People of Tareeqat, he is the one who is of the People of the receipt. His Sair and Chaal (traveling and way of doing) is Lillah (for Allah) that is, whatever he does, he does for the sake of Allah and in such 'Doing', instead of the Outwardly Physical Actions, he, relies upon the intention of heart and the Hazoor of heart. Intention of heart and the Hazoor of Qalb have special importance in Tareeqat and the Haal of his Inclination converts into Muhabbat. Color of this Latifa (Subtlety) is yellow and its Zikr is Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu (there is none worthy of worship except Allah) and its Name for Visualization is Lillah. When the Subtlety of the Qalb of the Seeker becomes Living, it breaks the Egg of the Nasoot and makes its nest on the Kingra (balustrade) of the Arsh e Mualla in the Realm of Malakoot like the Phoenix of the Sacred Mountain.
The Zikr Fikr of Allah Almighty, Hymns of His Praise and Exaltation and Recitation, and the Noor of the Obedience, Worship and Deeds of Goodness become its food and it gets power and ability through it. Its sleep, wakefulness, hunger, and thirst become one for it. Kashf and Karamaat are revealed through the Saalik at this Station of the Tareeqat and the Rujuaat-e-Khalq are encountered by him. Seeker should keep himself hidden and should not be a Khud Farosh at this Station otherwise he may lose chance of further ascension and progress in Salook. Meeting with Angels is experienced by the Saalik at this Station. He sees the Kiraman Katibeen visiting him from time to time. They give him Ilhaam and Alaam of deed of goodness and evil. Whenever someone is going to die with the Order of Allah, he sees the Angel of Death along with his assistant and helper Angels coming down from heavens, seizing the Spirit and taking it towards heavens. He can ascertain the blessedness or wretchedness of the Spirit in the manner it was seized. He, from time to time, sees Angels descending from heavens in different forms at the times of Zikr Azkaar and Recitation of the Holy Quran. He meets and shakes hand with Angels who get the food and free share from the extra-than-needed Noor of that Living-Hearted person's Zikr and Recitation and keeps on visiting his place. Angels make him blissful day and night by their Inwardly good tidings and spirituals intimations by which comfort is got by his heart as
Allah Almighty says: Lo! Those who say: Our Lord is Allah, and afterward are upright, the Angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not nor grieve, but bear good tidings of the paradise which you are promised. We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the Hereafter (41:30-31)
