[O Seeker of Lord!] Lo! Nothing of the creatures and Tauheed is out of the Verses of the Holy Quran. all the lands and seas and wet and dry are within it!
[O Real-Seeker!] Be enlightened [well] that some Saints, after a Riyazat of twelve years or forty years, studied the Loh-e-Mahfooz and reached unto the Greatest Arsh (Arsh e Akbar), and achieved the Maratib of the Ghaus and Qutab after traversing (and covering) thousands of Stations above (Arsh) by flying. Then countless people became their Mureedain. Respect and Martaba and wealth and possessions and name and dignity were got; Kashf and Karamaat took place (with the passage of time); Jinn and Muakal became obedient to them; then, they started considering these very Maratib the achievement of the Marifat of Lord. Some Saints use to study the Loh-e-Zamir Ilhaam because of the utmost Zikr-e-Qalbi and start believing it alone the total Marifat and the Tauheed of Allah Almighty. The brain of some when comes in motion because of the Zikr-e-Ruhi, they start thinking the Tajalli of Ruh and the Noor of the lamp of Mushahida the Tauheed of Allah Almighty and the Marifat of Lord.
Of each of these, there are also many degrees of them from the creatures and these Maratib and degrees are of the People of Taqleed but are very much away of the Faqar of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and the Marifat and Tauheed of Lord.
I mean to say is this that no one has either seen the beginning of Allah Almighty nor has anybody reached unto His ultimate. Hence, with respect to this, what thing will be Marifat and what is called the Tauheed [of Lord]? And what is meant by the Mushahida of the Qurb of Hazoori? Listen:
This is meant by the Selk-Salook, the Tauheed of the Marifat of Lord, the Qurb of Tauheed and the Muqarrib Mushahida of Hazoor that: when the Seeker of Allah does the Visualization of the Pure Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) and the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb, then the Tajalli of Noor, like sun, emanates across every letter of alphabet of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat)and the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) which wraps the People of Visualization inside it upon coming out and takes him inside the Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. This is the Station of Hazoori, which is also called Lamakaan and which is viewed by Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. There, the River of Wahdat splashes its diverse waves. From these waves comes the loud chant of Wahdahu, Wahdahu (He is the One, He is the One). Upon seeing the Noor of Lord reaching the other end of the River of Tauheed, (he) becomes Arif-Bi-Allah.
