Nonetheless, Maratib are five:
That person, who transits these four Maratib, he [is as if] becomes eligible for all the seven castles. This same thing is the Istaghraaq Fanaa-Fi-Allah Baqaa.
5. Faqeer uses to be Kaamil in Fanaa-Fi-Allah (Destruction in Allah).
O stupid the captive of the Nafs and desire!
Allah is sufficient; everything other than Allah is just lust (and greed)!
Bahu Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe carries the weightiness (and enormity) [of Didaar and the Trust of Lord] and the Secret of Didaar is with us,
[And] these Maratib are of the Arifeen of Haq, who have sacrificed their souls.
Maulana Room s Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe says:
I have tension for rhyme and my Sweetheart says to me:
You should not bring any thought in your heart besides My Didaar!
[That is, whence I think for deciding rhyme for composing this Masnavi, as it vital thing of every poem, thence the thought of the Real beloved does not spare me to even think about this]
What is the Reality of a letter of alphabet that you are concentrating about it?
What thing a letter of alphabet is? It is just a spike of the trellis of wine yard,
[Since letters of alphabet and words carry and explicit and implicit meanings and gleanings, therefore the words have been said as the likeness of the trellis that keeps the grapes fixed in it and keeps them safe and arranged]
I expunge the word, sound and discussion,
So that I may talk with You without all the three!
