EXPLANATION OF ZIKR, FIKR AND MURAQIBA
[Following] are the two witnesses [sings] for Zikr are:
1. The first witness [sign] of the Zikr is this that in Everlasting Zikr, the Qalb should move (and thud) by the Zikr of Lord and do the Zikr of Laaa-Ilaaha Ill-Allahu Muhammad-ur-Rasoolu-Allah Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam
2. The second witness [sign] of the Zikr is the Marifat of Lord and Qurb and Wisaal with God.
That person, in him are not present the above two witnesses concerning the Zikr, he has no news of the way of Zikr.
(WHAT IS CALLED FIKR?)
Fanaa of Nafs is called the Fikr. That person, who has Fanaa (Destruction) of Nafs; he gives the news of the Beneficence, Secret, Qurb and Marifat of Lord.
(STATIONS OF MURAQIBA)
Four Stations are of Muraqiba (Sufi Meditation):
1. Muraqiba of Muhabbat
2. Muraqiba of Mushahida
3. Muraqiba of the Marifat
4. Muraqiba should be the Privy (and Insider) of the Mysteries of Lord [and] the Majlis of Prophets and Aulia-Allah should be found.
Muraqiba of this kind is the desired (Maqsood), Demanded (Matloob) and Laudable (Mahmood). That Muraqiba, that is not endowed with the above Four virtues, that Master of Muraqiba is still inside the captivity of the Outcast Nafs.
Without the Tafakkur and Visualization of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), the Muraqiba and the extraordinary special Zikr and Fikr is not got by the Waasil. Through the Visualization and Tafakkur of the Name-Allah-the-Essence (Ism-e-Allah-Zaat), the Master of Muraqiba leaves his soul and Absorbs in the Essence of God. (I) mean to say is this that the human body is as the likeness of milk and Divine Words (of Revelation) are also like milk. Without the Murshid Pir-e-Kaamil, milk does not turn stable (semi-solid) to give option of getting curd, butter, (Lassi) and Ghee from it.
