Many people are untrue and belie as claimants of the Ishq. Aashiqeen are many, but the Truthful in the Ishq is hardly one out of thousands who is ready to sacrifice his life.
It should be known that Nafs accepts (and likes) the Outward worship, Zikr Fikr, Muraqiba, Mukashifa, Kashf and Karamat, Wird and Wazaaif, and the recitation of the Sacred Quran. Every action of this sort is the source of Sawaab. However, the Nafs never accepts the Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) which is the Qurb Ma-Allah (with Allah) and the Marifat of the Wisaal because the Visualization of the Name of Allah the Essence is opposite of Sawaab and is death for the Nafs and is like a (Naked) Sword for killing it.
Visualization should be done through Taufeeq and Tahqeeq by this Tareeq so that, with the Visualization and Tafakkur, through Mashq-e-Wujoodia, the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat) the Hayyu Qayyum should become bright and all the Stations of the Essence and the Sifaat should become clear.
Seeker of every (Sufi) Order suffers with the travail, Riyazat and Mujahida [but] in the Kaamil Qadiri (Sufi) Order he is benefited with the Wealth of the Mushahida of Hazoor. [Hence] to the People of Wealth, the company of the People of travail does not prove lasting. Further, in every other (Sufi) Order, the said elements are commemorated [but] in the Qadiri (Sufi) Order is the Qurb along with Allah (Ma-Allah) and the Marifat of Hazoor. Thus, to the People-of-Hazoor, the company of the People of the Commemoration of the aforementioned elements does not prove lasting (and beneficial).
Lo! The Nafs is the deadly adversary of the sacred Ruh because the Ruh is at unrest in the hands of the Nafs. And Satan is the strongest enemy of the Qalb because of the fact that the Qalb is the repository filled with the Noor of the Marifat of Tauheed. And the impure Dunya (World) is the enemy of the Deen and Eimaan. The solution to dispel all of the three is the Visualization accompanied by Tafakkur and Marqoom Mashq-e-Wujoodia. And which Tareeq of the Salook is that, which will grant the Majlis of Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam to the unblessed person? [That is this Visualization] and these are the very Maratib of the Laa-Yuhtaaj Faqeers!
If I clearly expose the Sharah of my Fervor,
Then no person would stay alive in the world!
Allah is sufficient; everything other than Allah is just lust (and greed)!
