I remember one advice of the Pir of Tareeqat,
That all except the Remembrance of Allah is going to be destroyed,
Wealth has been handed over to dogs and blessings have been given to donkeys,
[And] I am in peace and refuge and watching the show.
[Remember] An hour, which is spent in the Fervor of Lord, is superior over thousands of Kingdoms and the total Maratib from the moon to fish!
This is the Naqsh of the Circle (Daira) of the Fanaa-Fi-Shaikh (Destruction in Shaikh):
Fanaa as well as Baqaa are got through it due to which, he becomes Waasil with God. [Due to this,] he gives up the entire Baatil Bidat, Shirk, Kufr, greed and desire and Riya. His inner self becomes pure. He, who is Arif-Bi-Allah, he is respectful, bashful, Intrepid-devotee (Jaan Nisaar) and Ain-Numa.
The state of affairs of the Visualization of Fanaa-Fi-Shaikh (Destruction in Shaikh) is such that through this, the Shaikh can cause the Martaba of that Seeker Mureed, whom he wills, equal to his own Martaba. Shaikh gives life and causes death, that is, he turns the heart to become Living and turns the Nafs to become dead. On the other hand, if the Shaikh demonstrates his coercive displeasure for the Seeker, [everything] gets Salb (Disqualified and divested), that is, [he] turns the Nafs to be Living and turns the Qalb to be dead!
Therefore! "The the Seeker, for the Murshid, is as the dead body is in the hands of the person who gives it the funeral bath"
(He) causes the Nafs Ba Nafs, the Damm Ba Damm and Qalb Ba Qalb! The Seeker should expend all the power and capacity of all his Haft-Andaam in the Demand of the Haft-Andaam of the Shaikh and take them as Nemul-Badal and should never ever mention his services by his tongue because the Shaikh is all aware of his conditions, actions, and every word and utterance (Ahwaal, Amaal and Qeel-O-Qaal).
