The preliminary Maratib of the Seeker of Allah are these that he does the Tahqeeq of his predestination and identifies his Murshid through the Taufeeq of the demand and with Obedience same as son does the Tahqeeq and identification of his father! This type of Yaqeen is called Kul ul Kaamil (the All-inclusive Perfection). Thus, if the beneficence-of-Fazal is present with the Seeker since Azal, then the Fervor of the demand for the Ilm Hikmat [and] Marifat will burn him in a way as fire burns dry wood. Equanimity and respite, dream and rest will not last in the Seeker but instead he will abhor from and flee away of the creatures. The Lesson of Hairat will be harder for him than even death!
The demand for the Noor of Jamiyat is not felt urgent by the Seeker as long as the company of and meeting between such a Murshid-e-Kaamil the Seeker of the People-of-Hazoor the Granter of Jamiyat, does not take place.
The Murshid-e-Kaamil grants Jamiyat and genuineness (and devotion) upon demand and upon demand, causes Immersion in Noor Fanaa in the Essence of Lord [and] takes him unto the Visualization of the Noor of Hazoor and the Seeker, by means of mere demand, satisfactorily reaches unto Noor of Hazoor and gets deliverance against the sting [of deprivation].
It should be known that the entire Mataalib of Seeker are in death (that is, Die-before-Death) and the Marifat of the Muhabbat of the Mushahida of the Majlis of the Holy Prophets Alaihis-Salaam and the Honorable Aulia-Allah is also inside death; and the Meeting with the Drowned in the Essence of Allah is in death; and Didaar of Lord and the ascension to the Qurb of Hazoori is [also] in death. As long as the Seeker of death does not reach unto the Maratib of Die-before-death, he cannot become Privy (and Insider) of Mysteries [and] can never become Waasil with the Qurb of Marifat of Allah. Moreover, that Seeker, who has not Jamiyat and is the seeker of Dunya (World), he is always much suffered and despised and the Seekers of the Life to Come and the Houries and Palaces are countless.
One, out of thousands, is such a Seeker of Lord, who is up to the satisfactory mark in the eyes the affectionate Murshid [and] is worthy of the Hazoor of the Provider. That Seeker, who demands the Marifat of Lord and Wisaal, he should spend all that he possesses for its [attainment].
