He comes to know of some and not for some. Those, he knows, are the Wali-Allah. With the Zikr of Jalaaliyat, they are Mast in disposition (Mast Haal) and in mystique and emotion. Those whom he knows not, they are covered inside the Cloak of Allah about whom the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has said that:
(Saying of Allah reported by the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Lo! My Aulia (Friends) are under My Qabaa (cloak). None else but only I identify them.
The fire of Hell runs as far away of the person Exercising the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) as the journey of seventy years is and the Heaven comes to welcome him as close as the seventy thousand years' journey is!
And Exercise (Mashq) of the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) is of six kinds:
1. the Name Allah,
2. the Name Lillah,
3. the Name Lahu,
4. the Name Hu,
5. the Name Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam
6. the 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).
When the Seeker becomes engrossed in each and every Name of Allah and Hazrat MuhammadSal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb, his every sin hides under the Mantle of the Noor of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat). This Martaba is also of the Entirety: "Faqar, when reaches its entirety (and perfection), that is Allah". The Arif-Bi-Allah takes [the Seeker of Allah unto this Station].
Die-before-death means this that he should observe those Maratib, that are due to him after death, during his very life (Hayaat). What are the Maratib of after death (Mamaat)? That is, from the "time of the agony (throes) of death", the Accountability (and answer) and the Account (Deed Manifest), Punishment and Reward, entering the Heaven after crossing across over the Pul-Siraat, drinking the Goblet of the wine of Taihura [Pure drink (76:21)] from the Hauz e Kausar (Pool of Abundance) by the blessed hand of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, keeping in Prostration before the Lord of Worlds for five hundred years; then standing in horizontal line following Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, sending the Zikr of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah on each and every Roohani and becoming honored and dignified by seeing the Didaar of Allah Almighty; keeping engrossed in the Didaar the Secret of Haq - not with the Outward eye but with the eye of heart. These Maratib are of that person, to him the Degree of "When Faqar reaches unto its extremity (and entirety), that is Allah" and in addition "he has died before death". All this, the Murshid-e-Kaamil unlocks through the Haziraat and Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) and the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah and shows. The Sarwari-Qadiri Jamey Murshid should be like this!
