(if the response to) one who stretches forth his hands towards water (asking) that it may come unto his mouth, and it will never reach it. The prayer of disbelievers goes (far) astray (13:14)
That person, who intends for the Haziraat and the Taskheer of the Angels and chooses Riyazat for it, he should keep himself clean and pure during hours of recluse, should use scent, should abstain from every Jamaali and Jalaali thing, that is, he should give us animals. He should never use Hookah and narcotics. He should keep state of Ablution every time. He should keep aside of the company of the Kaafir, Mushrik, Munafiq (Hypocrite), Faasiq (abominable person), Faajir (sinner) and wrongdoers. He should adhere to 'less speaking', 'less eating', 'less sleeping' and 'meeting less people'. He should keep his heart free and clean against Worldly Khatraat, Sensual Temptations and Satanic Thoughts and should become cordially preoccupied and drowned into the Zikr, Fikr, Hymn, Praise, Exaltation, Veneration, Recitation, Worship and Obedience of Allah Almighty. He should imagine his place of privacy a grave and himself a dead body and should completely disconnect with the people of Dunya (World) and should engage himself in the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) or the Zikr of the Nafi Asbaat of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah/there is none worthy of worship except Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) or the Visualization of the Name Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam the overlord of the world or that Visualization and the Zikr of the Sacred Most Beautiful Names or the Nawafil Assalaat (Prayers) or the Recitation of the verses of the Holy Quran which he finds useful and agreeable for him as instructed and guided by some Teacher, Mentor and the Murshid-e-Kaamil. By acting upon the above-mentioned directive, the heart of the Seeker of Allah becomes clean and pure and becomes lively and bright through the Noor of the Zikr of Allah. His heart, like the House of Allah, becomes the Gathering Place and Station of the Angels and a Center of the Tawaaf of the Spirits and the Angels turn submissive to him, obedient to him and obey him and become his helpers and assistants in every task.
After this, if the Saalik Seeker progresses ahead of this Station of Malakoot and sets his step at the Station of Spirits, then the Subtlety of his heart becomes Living and he reads Dawat the Dawat of the Holy Quran through the Tongue of the Spirit. Roohani come to the Executor of Dawat from all sides in order to get the Noori Victual of the Word of Allah and become happy and pleased with him after getting their food and help him and assist him in every way in return.
Such Living-Hearted person, when initiates Dawat of the Noble Quran near the grave of some Kaamil Wali Arif or Martyr, the Roohani of the Grave senses the Noor of the Quran and comes towards the People-of-Dawat doing Teer-Sair from his Ocean of the Realm of Invisible as some fish senses the bait and comes near the surface of water near that person, who is throwing the food in water!
Here a Dead-Hearted Sensual Person can object that a grave is but a pile of mud which just contains perished bones of the dead body and nothing more than this. Ruh (spirit), if it is a thing, it must be station between the green Kingras (balustrades) of the Arsh in form of green birds. Hence, this should be kept in mind that there is no doubt that a grave has the old bones of the dead body and when the bird of the spirit finds the cage of its corporeal body and material frame broken, it always flies upwards to the Realm of Up and the Realm of Barzukh. However, an Inwardly relation of it remains intact with its grave and the earthly remain in it same as a bird has its relation with its nest and home. When the verses of the Holy Quran are recited on the grave of the Roohani, or the Sawaab of the Quran or Fatihah etcetera is offered to him, it gets A'laam from the Realm of Up and the Realm of Barzukh and in order to get that Sawaab, it reaches back to its grave from Realm of Up and the Realm of Barzukh. Roohani, congruent to its grave and earthly body, is drowned in its Inwardly Barzukh as the human being goes to some vast, Subtle, far off kingdom and when he wakes up, his Inwardly Bulk reaches back his earthly bulk and bed.
If a person, uses his senses and intellect a little, he would find himself coming out of the Subtle World of Dream same as fish comes on the water surface from depth. That is why, dream has been called 'Akhul Maut' that is 'brother of death' in Arabic. Iqbal has referred same in a Persian couplet:
