The dog of the Ashaab-e-Kahf followed the virtuous for a few days,
?It became like the human beings as a result thereof.
Allah Almighty says: I created jinn and mankind only that they might worship Me. (51:56)
That is, in order that they should identify Me. Thus, the worshipers are the People of Ilm and are the beginners and the identifiers are the Faqeers, who are the ultimate (masters).
?O Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe! Allah is near us, why is He said apart?
Whoever has linked with Him cordially, he himself became fount of Light.
That person, who Outwardly is the Master of Ilm Uloom [that is, he has only the Outward Uloom], he is devoid of and ignoramus about the Zikr and Fikr and Istaghraaq (and) the Inwardly Marifat. The Fazeelat is useful when it is accompanied by Waseela and without Waseela, Fazeelat is of useless. Hence, Fazeelat takes up to the [Mansib of] Qaza and the Waseela takes to the Raza of Lord through poverty and hunger. That is why the Imaam of the Muslims Hazrat Imaam e Azam (Hazrat Abu Hanifa) Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe did not accept the Mansib of Qaza [in spite of the severity of the king of that time] and sacrificed his life for the Raza of Lord.
That Faqeer, who does not offer Outwardly worship, he is a sinner in the sight of the Ulema whereas that Outwardly worship, which the Ulema offer, is a sin in the Inward in the sight of the Faqeers because of the fact that the Ulema possess the Martaba of Hazrat Musa Alaihis-Salaam (Moses) who is the Kaleem Ullah in the Outward whereas the Faqeers have the Inwardly Martaba of Hazrat Khizar Alaihis-Salaam. Thus, their anecdote has been mentioned in the Surah Al Kahf (18) like blemishing the boat (by making a hole in it), the killing a kid and repairing of wall?.
And when you see that a Faqeer employs a lot of effort in the Zikr, Fikr, devoutness and pietism and takes pains then Be enlightened that he still is bustling in the jungle of the ignorance of Hijaab as long as and until he has not Drowned into the Tauheed of the Hazoori of the Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destruction in Allah).
