As if the purgation (purification) of the Nafs is realized through deeds of goodness. Then it penitent against the Tastes of world and the company of the People of Dunya (World) and the heart of the human being becomes clean; his Ruh becomes Chaste and he becomes engrossed in worship and Marifat of Lord. After this, his Nafs achieves the Martaba of the Mutmainna.
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
The world is a bow, its accidents are arrows, and human being is the target in it.
(Saying of Allah reported by the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
You should lead a life in the world in away as if you are outsider (Ghareeb) and rather a wayfarer and believe yourself to be the People of Graves.
We have described the aggregate of the Ilm-of-Outward (Outwardly Ilm) and Inward and the aggregate of the Ilm of Faqar and the Inward Marifat of Lord all in one Nukta and one dot is in just one (letter) Noon of one word Naik Niyyat (good intention) and the giving up lust, greed and jealousy. That person, who gives up all these three, he achieves both: the Kaamil Ilm and the difficult Marifat (of Lord).
That thing that is the everlasting, it is the Zikr. The Zaakireen are also the winners of eternity. By terminating all the three things (lust, greed and jealousy), the Martaba of the Ultimate Level of Marifat is achieved by the Faqeers.
The writer (Faqeer Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe) says that seven victories are with the Master-of-Qalb. With every victory is achieved the Beneficence of Dervish-hood of seventy thousand kinds. This thing is known only by him, who has been benefited with this Beneficence and light. The more the Seeker Mureed will be the Master of Yaqeen at this Station; he will never flee away of equanimity (Qaraar); his degree will not become Salb (Disqualified or divested) because the Tajalli of the Essence (Zaati) is other and the Tajalli of the Names (Asmaaee) and Alphabets (Haroofi) is other and the Tajalli of Divine (Rabbani) is other. Tajalli is of four kinds which is called just the Beneficence and grant. The Seeker, whatever he sees through the Haziraat of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) it is Absolute Wahdaniyat of God. This, whatever Tajalli he sees across the Names (Asmaa), is called the Noor of the Qurb and Marifat of Lord.
