SECOND AND THIRD CHAPTER
ABOUT STARTING ZIKR
[O True-Seeker!] Be informed that: it is individual-obligation on the Murshid-e-Kaamil that he should show the Seeker the Station of Khauf (Fear), Station of Rija (Hope), the Station of the Kashf-ul-Qaboor and the Station of the Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. Then he should issue the Talqeen of the Ilm of Marifat. Therefore, he should never engage him first in the Zikr, Fikr, Muraqiba, Wird, and Wazaaif. He should just tell him the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) because by this Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) the Inward becomes frequented (and thriving). In order to achieve this purpose, the Murshid-e-Kaamil should first write the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) in good script and hand it over to the Seeker and should say him that "O Seeker! Write this Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) on heart". When the Name Allah has becomes stable and stations on heart, he should then say to the Seeker that "O Seeker! Brightness like sun and the Tajalli of Noor is being emanated across the letters of alphabet of the Name Allah and around the heart is a matchless and everlasting Domain of which is an extremely large and immense field (area) that in terms of capacity is of the size larger than the Fourteen Strata and rather Both-the-Worlds can absorb in this field like a small black grain. In this field a Dome of Tomb is seen by the Seeker of Lord and on the door of this tomb is hanging Lock of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah (Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam) the Key of which is the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat). When the Seeker says the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), that Lock is unlocked and the Seeker enters inside the Tomb. There he sees the Great Majlis of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and he sits in this Assembly. This Qurb of the Habeeb Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam comes in his share with the Order of Allah Almighty through the Taufeeq of the Saadiq Siddique Murshid-e-Kaamil and the Murshid-e-Kaamil also accompanies (him).
And if there are thousands of Zunnaar present in the heart of a person due to the Devilish Waswaas and carnal illusions (superstitions) the number of which is sixty thousand (60,000) and which are far more harder than the relation of the Zunnaar of the Jews and Nasaara (the Nazarenes) and because of them (his) heart is black, dead and gloomy then the Murshid-e-Kaamil should teach him the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) and should write the letters of alphabets of the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb around the heart of the Seeker with Tafakkur and Tawajuh.
