The Ulema say 'what unwise and silly the Faqeers are!' They do not know that the Name Allah is all the times in the hearts of the Faqeers and they are Sahib e Dard (People of ache and distress).
?O Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe! Ilm, Zikr and Fikr, without Drowning into Allah - all are Hijaabaat,
You choose not the Course of that, which distracts you from Allah.
As long as the Waasil Aashiq of God has not forgotten all the Ilm, Zikr, Fikr, Stations, Kashf and Karamat; the Haq is not attained!
The Pir of the Piraan - the Ghaus ul Azam - Hazrat Pir Dastgeer - Shaikh Muhyiddeen Abdul-Qadir-Jelaani Qaddas-Allahu Sirru-hul Aziz said that:
"That person, who intends for worship after attaining the Real Wisaal, he, verily, committed Kufr and Shirk with his Real Lord".
Allah Almighty says: And serve your Lord till the inevitable comes unto you (15:99)
[That is, the human being should get so much Istaghraaq in the worship of God that the Martaba of Ain-ul-Yaqeen is achieved by him and upon reaching this Martaba, worship does not remain an Obligation on the human being because he gains the Sukr and in Sukr worship does not remain Obligatory. However, when he returns to normal condition, worship becomes compulsory as a gesture of thankfulness. If he permanently experiences Sukr and unrest, worship is Masqat (abortive or quashed) for him. The avowal of Hazrat Shaikh Muhyiddeen Abdul-Qadir-Jelaani Qaddas-Allahu Sirru-hul Aziz represents the same.]
However, [even] Hazoori is all Hijaab and the Qurb is totally a torture as long as the Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destruction in Allah) has not become Drowned in the Tauheed! At this Station, the Mushahida becomes Mujahida and Mujahida becomes Mushahida!
[DESCRIPTION OF MURAQIBA]
(Real) Muraqiba is that (in which) when one closes his eyes and undergoes Muraqiba, he can see him wherever he wills and should take Mushahida of his self with the Outwardly and Inwardly eye. Thus, that person, in whose Muraqiba these Ahwaal are absent, it is Muraqiba but rather it is like this as a cat shuts its eyes in order to kill rats [and lurks motionlessly and silently].
ABOUT ILM-UL-YAQEEN, AIN-UL-YAQEEN AND HAQ-UL-YAQEEN: That thing which is identified through proving reason, that is called "Ilm-ul-Yaqeen" as after seeing the creations, identifying the Creator; and that which is derived through (contemplative) Vision, it is called the "Ain-ul-Yaqeen" as sun needs no proving reason for its entity but instead the (contemplative) Vision is sufficient for this; and the outcome of the (contemplative) Vision is called the "Haq-ul-Yaqeen" as through the (contemplative) Vision of the Tajalliyaat, the Qurb of Allah is attained.
