STATION OF FANAA-FI-SHAIKH
And the Station of the Fanaa-Fi-Shaikh is this that when the Seeker of Allah does the Visualization of the form of the Shaikh, it comes there at the same spot and takes him, holding his hand, unto the Marifat of Lord or the Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. Such Shaikh is also called "(he) causes life as well as death". And when (he) takes unto the Station of the Fanaa-Fi-Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, undoubtedly, the blessed Ruh of the Overlord of World Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam (comes) with tremendous Condescension (with complaisance) and munificence along with the Arwah (Spirits) of the Holy Companions Radhi-ya-Allahu Ta-aala Anhum. The Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam says to the Master of Visualization: " Khuz Be Yadee (Hold my hand)". Upon holding the blessed hand of the Holy Prophet Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, heart turns luminous and bright by the Marifat of Lord by virtue of which, the human being becomes eligible for the Irshaad as the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam says to the Master of Visualization with his blessed tongue that: "Extend help to the creatures of God". Hence, with the Order of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam, (the Master of Visualization) gives Talqeen and Teaching to the creatures of God and makes the Seekers his Mureed.
Allah Almighty says: The Hand of Allah is above their hands (48:10)
I feel strange concerning those people, who have absolutely not tasted the Inwardly taste of the Noor of the Marifat of Lord and perhaps they have assumed "therefore flee unto Allah" (51:50) as flee from Allah and the Station of the Fanaa Fi Ism e Allah Zaat (Destruction in the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat)) is this that that person, who does the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), the Marifat of Ill-Allahu" and the (efficacious) effectiveness of the Name Allah comes to his share through it; and the Thought of the Outsiders of Allah is completely removed from his heart. That person, who has reached unto this Station, he drinks the Goblet from the River of the Tauheed and Marifat of Lord and wears the raiment of Shariyat from the head to feet and always strives in Shariyat and Amar Bil Maroof (enjoining right conduct) (3:110). Those Secrets of the Marifat of Lord, which are observed by him, he does not disclose them before the idiots. Neither he is ignoramus nor is he arrogant and haughty.
Up to the maximum extent you should hide yourself from people,
The Arifeen do not like to be Khud-Frosh and showy.
