[O Real-Seeker!] Lo! Three things never remain hidden even if a person hides them inside thousands of curtains: first is Sun, second is the fresh and sweet fragrance of the Deen of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam), and third is the Marifat of Lord of the Arif-Bi-Allah.
[O True-Seeker!] Be advised that: that person, who eats Heavenly Food and drinks water from the Canal of the Heaven and sees Houries and Palaces of Heaven after going to the Heaven in his dream, then, when he will wake up from sleep or will come out of the state of Muraqiba, he will not be left with a need of eating and drinking for his entire life. There will last no sign and traces of Hunger and thirst in his body; he will feel slumber never for his entire life. However he, in order to show the people or for the Assalaat (Prayers), may cause his eyes sleepy and will spend his entire life with one Ablution (Wuzu). Such an ability and power of Obedience (and servitude) will rise in his body that day and night he will continuously grow fat. In order to remain safe against the reproof (blame) and secrecy from the people, he will apparently eat and drink. For him, the summer and winter will be equal. He will get taste through hot and cold weather. These are the extremely lower and inferior Maratib of a Dervish. The Faqeer feels shyness and Bashfulness (and modesty) against such Maratib [and powers]. Such things are far away of the Faqar of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. This too is the result of the desires of Nafs. The Ultimate Martaba of Faqar is this that he becomes honored with the Liqaa of the Lord of Worlds in Muraqiba or dream. Although he keeps solitude Outwardly, such a Fire of Muhabbat and Demand lights in his body by virtue of the Tauheed and Marifat and the Zikr and Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) that day and night the state of Jalaaliyat and Jazba will prevail. Such person will domineer upon and exert coercion over the Nafs; will try to clad his body with the raiment of Shariyat and will quote this Hadis:
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Contemplate about His Liqaa (and Didaar) and contemplate nothing concerning His Essence (and Person).
Marifat and Tauheed of Allah Almighty is a tremendous blessing which is unique and has no parallel. With the Fire of the Zikr-e-Dawaam, the body always becomes alike fire oven that burns the organs in such a way as fire burns fuel. If a trivial portion of this Fire of the Jalaaliyat of Hazoori equal to magnitude of a mote gazes upon the earth and heaven, everything will get blazed! Well done for that person, who burns yet gasps not and gets never an escape from this Fire and no other Riyazat will ever be considered harder than this Riyazat till the Day of Resurrection!
