So that if a hundred thousand kinds of the Fires of Hell start burning before this Fire (of Ishq) but if the Aashiq releases the "gasps of Ah and cries" from his bosom in equal measure, the all the Fire of Hell would turn cool (and extinguished) before it as no other fire is more violent and has a greater scorching effect than the Fire of Love is!
ANSWER OF WRITER (Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe):
By virtue of this worship, the Inward of the People of Muhabbat (Ahl e Muhabbat) keeps the pure Secret of Lord and is free from Riya. Their prayer, argument, and their Jazba (mystique and emotion) all also Accepted and their slumber is also the Fount of Wisaal. That heart, which is full of the Ache of the Muhabbat to Lord, and is warm, and is full of vexation (Soze), he is completely distant from Dunya (World) and the People of Dunya (World).
And what is called Jamiyat? Jamiyat is the name of this action that one should face towards the Jamaal of Lord after coming out the Absorptions (and inclinations) of the Outward and the Inward. And when the Seeker of Lord has attained the Jamiyat with Lord, he takes bath (Ghusal) [to get cleaned from] the Dunya (World), and does the Ablution (Wuzu to get pure from the desire of) the Hereafter and reads the Takbeer e Tahreema (Allahu Akbar - Allah is Great) against all that, which distracts from Allah for all his life. He gives divorce to all: the Name Allah Zaati and the Great Name (Ism e Akbar) Sifaati and all the Outsiders of Allah. Thus the pure Master of Jamiyat and is the sincere is the sect of Faqar. These people, wherever they are: whether in wilderness or in Ocean, whether at crest or at trough, they are companions of Allah Almighty in every condition.
And [O True-Seeker] Lo! Allah Almighty gives the pomp of the life of world and gold and silver, the power, the governance and dignity of the Dunya (World) to that person, who is a silly, stupid and senseless person in the world because taking the sins [of others] on one's own shoulders every hour is the practice of the unwise people as they do not gaze upon the Day of Judgment. That person, whom Allah Almighty hands over to the Faqar, he is the wise and sensible in the world. The Seeker of Lord is [always] harmless (with nil such loads) and is idolizer of Lord. His heart is wakeful and Conscientious with the Zikr of Lord. The prime quest of the Seeker of Lord is the Lord only. Presence of the Muhabbat for Lord that has twinge and ache, even of the magnitude of a particle, is better than all virtuous worship of all life.
