The author of this book [Hazrat Sultan Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe]; a recluse in the Sanctuary (Court) of the Jalaal and Jamaal of the Haa Huwiyyat of Allah Almighty; Drowned in the Mushahida (Vision) of the Absolute Essence (Zaat ); honored by the eye of the Favor of the Visibly Witnessed Rightful Deity of Worship; swinging in the cradle of the Divine Pride of "(I am Pure and) My Splendor is Great"; wearing the crown of Marifat and the Absolute Wahdat at the Top of the Station of Respect; rolling the mantle of Refinement (Tazkiya ) and Purity (Tasfiya ) under arm at the Station of "You are I, and I am You"; and addressed with the title of Haq by Haq; the Sirr of the Eye of Yaa Hu; that is, Faqeer Bahu - May his Secret be sanctified, surname A'waan, resident of Qala' Shor [Kot] May Allah keep this place safe from all dissensions and oppressions, states a few words in the researches (and realizations) of Faqar as exposition of the Station of the Essence of the Huwiyyat and gives the teachings of the deepest meanings in its apparent meanings and the most extraordinary interpretation of the Verse: "My Mercy embraces everything" (7:156). The Arif e Waasil , at whatsoever direction, raises his gaze to gaze upon, nothing besides the Didaar [of that Essence of Haq] is seen by him. (He) erases all impressions of the Outsiders and of the egotism from his body so much so that (he) unifies with the Absolute Essence .
Be enlightened! When the Noor of Ahad (the One and Only), [after emanating out] of the bridal chamber of the Privacy of Wahdat , willed to expose in the Realm of Multiplicity, it casted a commotion with the manifestation of its Pure Light. (All) Worlds rushed to its Candle of Beauty and burnt like moths, [became Aashiq ], then [the Noor of the Essence], after putting on the veil of the Meem of Ahmad transformed into the appearance of Ahmad and with abundance of the raptures and attachments shook seven times upon itself as a result of which came into being, on the tree of the Miraat-ul-Yaqeen , the Seven Arwah (Spirits) of Faqeers , all serene (and clear), Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah), Baqaa-Bi-Allah (Reborn with Allah), completely lost in the Thought of His Essence, all in the likeness of kernel without crust, Drowned into the Ocean of the Jamaal , Seventy Thousand Years earlier the creation of Adam Alaihis-Salaam. They, since the Azal to Abad , neither saw anything else except the Essence of Haq, nor did they listen anything besides Allah [that is, they never heard any voice except the Word of 'Alast' of Allah on the Day of Azal ]. They have the everlasting infinite Wisaal in the Ocean of the Sanctum of the Majesty. They, at times, wearing Noori Bulks , have strived in veneration and transcendence, [and] "at times, drop in the ocean and at times, the ocean in the drop" [is their similitude] and the robe of the Beneficence of Conferment, that is, "When Faqar reaches unto its extremity (and entirety), that is Allah," is over them. Thus, the crown of the Eternal Existence and infinite Honor is possessed by them. Faqeer is not left with any need either of his Sustainer or of His outsiders. [By virtue of being Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destroyed in Allah) and Baqaa-Bi-Allah (Reborn with Allah), they are not Outsiders for their Lord, and hence they are not the needy].
