In case, Fazeelat (superiority and excellence) was merely because of Ilm, it should have been with Bal'am Baoor. If Fazeelat were merely due to servitude and worship, Satan should have not become accursed. If Fazeelat depended upon Riyazat, the Sons of Jews, who had spent thirty years in privacy (and recluse) with one Fast, should have not gone astray! This is a gift of the Faqar of Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam and this is just a special Muhabbat with Almighty Haq, which is granted to him whom Allah Almighty wills. The Marifat of Lord is from Irfaan. It has no relation with Urf (surname). What will you know that what thing the Muhabbat with Allah Almighty is!
The dog of the Ashaab-e-Kahf remained a few days with the virtuous,
And it became human, that is, it reached unto the degree of humanity.
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Lo! Allah Almighty tests the Believers in hardships same as the test of gold is done inside fire.
That person, who breathes saying Hu Hu, his soul scatters into pieces,
[Even in this state] he has no fear as the Ism-e-Azam abuts with Hu,
O Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe! The Baa of Bism is with the Alif of Allah,
Therefore, wash away every that thing from your heart, which is besides Hu,
Hu manifests the Enlightenment of conscience (Roshan-Zamiri),
The Secret of the Wahdaniyat opens on Faqeer Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah),
ABOUT BAL'AM BAOOR: He was a renowned scholar and pious person in the Children of Israel in the era of Hazrat Musa Alaihis-Salaam. He had been engrossed in mortification and Mujahida for forty years. He knew the Ism-e-Azam. When he raised his head, he could see up to the Throne. Twelve thousand scholars used to study in his company. He was Mustajaab-ud-Dawaat. Due to his curse, Hazrat Musa Alaihis-Salaam along with his nation remained in problems in the valley of Tiya. When message of Allah came that, He had granted him the power of Dawat but he has been unthankful to Allah. Had he shown gratefulness to Allah even once in his entire life Allah would have not been not taken all the bounties back from him. Under lobbing of his nation and after taking from them a lot of wealth and rewards, he wished a curse against Hazrat Musa Alaihis-Salaam and the Children of Israel that fell back on him. And it has come in Holy Quran that his condition became so much worse like that dog which if beaten, would wheeze and if not beaten, it would even then wheeze. He ended in state of Kufr and met ruination due to a curse of a Messenger.
