O dear! Be enlightened that this is such a Course that on it, first you take Four Birds and slaughter them through the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) that are: the Crow of Greed (and grasping), the Cock of Shahwat, the Peacock of Pomp and the Pigeon of Desire and greed. After this, set foot in the Marifat of God in Faqar. When all these Four Birds have been killed, the Outwardly Senses deactivate and the Inwardly Senses activate by virtue of which, the Haq (Truth) delivers to the Haq (Truth) and the Baatil delivers to the Baatil that is, (he can) distinguish between the Haq (Truth) and Baatil.
In the start of these Maratib, the Selk-Salook is divided based on two kinds:
1. Giving order of Mujahida and Riyazat and to perform Chilla, which is the Martaba of the wages of a laborer.
2. Showing Maratib and getting the Mushahida done, which is the Martaba of the Marifat of Hazoor. He, who reads (in) Hazoor, he gets (him) delivered in the Hazoor; he, who studies the Ilm of Hazoor, he all the time remains in the Majlis of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam. In addition, that Murshid, who is the Aalim-Bi-Allah, he knows no other way besides Hazoori. The Course of Hazoori is such a witnessed Course in which, the Rafiqs (companions of journey) always accompany on the Course. The Rafiqs always keep him away of the Minor (Saghira) and Major (Kabira) sins. Those Rafiqs are the grant of Lord and Beneficence of Lord. The scene of the show of Both-the-Worlds remains in the vision and gaze.
The first witness on this is the Seeker of Ilm because a Jaahil can never reach unto the Marifat of Lord and the Jaahil can never become Faqeer-Aulia-Allah. The Unremitting Ilm (Ilm e Dawaam) is such an Ilm, that the Ilm-of-Outward (Outwardly Ilm) (physical knowledge) is of the worth of acquiring a letter of alphabet in the Inwardly Ilm.
Second witness is the Seeker of Lord, who's Maratib are exceptionally high and dignified.
Third witness is of the "superior amongst the Ulema" (Afzal ul Ulema).
Fourth witness is the Aulia.
Fifth witness is Beneficence granting leadership and showing the right path to the humankind.
Sixth witness is being with deference and Bashfulness (and modesty).
Seventh witness is giving up the desire and greed (and lust).
?"He is with you where so ever you may be" (57:4)
Whoever does not have all these eight witnesses, he does not know even the way of the (institutions) of Pir and Murshid
