Angles of Light

Certain numbers of Nasma have been mentioned during our discussion regarding nasma. Each of these countless numbers is indicative of an angle of light. Every angle of light is a composition of aforementioned Attraction and Aversion. Every individual being is an existence of this angle of Attraction and Aversion. Every individual forms a hypothetical point on this angle. Every Point is associated with all the points of its species and is homologous with other points of its species. This very homology Causes it to appear similar to the other points of its species. To describe these points further, we could term each point as a Location. This location is of two types and keeps on circulating. First circulation is the Rotational Revolution which keeps it incarcerated and does not allow it to be absorbed in points of other species. Other is the Linear Revolution which keeps it in touch with other angles of the universe, that is to say, all these points (angles) are tied in the strings of light and arrangement of the universe is based upon these very strings of light.

  One side of the rotational revolution is the record of the individual life of the point and its other side is the record of the life of its species, One side of the linear revolution associates the individuals of one species with the individuals of the other species and the other side of this revolution is adjoining to that Reality which is known as the Inevitable Being (Wajib-ul-Wajood). This reality comprises of the Personal Attributes of Allah, the Most Exalted.

  The lights which are the root cause of the rotational revolution are named as Nasma and the lights that are the root cause of the linear revolution are named ’noor' (Light), in any person these Lights are the centrality (nucleus) of the person. Each of these lights is di-hedral and each side is the conscious of the system of the universe.




 In order to prepare a flavored drink, Water sugar, colors, and flavor are mixed together and kept in bottles. If the bottle is considered to be that light which is present before our eyes then the water could be assumed as the Fourth Conscious, the Color as the Third Conscious, the sweetness as the Second Conscious and the Flavor as the First Conscious. Just as we feel and perceive the water, colors, sugar and the flavor through ostensible senses similarly these four consciouses could be realized and perceived through immanent senses.

 Conscious has two sides. One is the Origin (Mubdaa) which could be called the immanent or the internal side another name of the same is the Individual. All the creatures that are existing in the form of an individual or a particle, exist within the limits of this very side of the conscious. Both the sides of the conscious have the only difference Of the spectator and the scene. One state of the conscious is that which is felt by the individual and the other is the sensation itself. The same is called the External World. Existence of anything in the out, anyhow, is not possible without its immanent existence in the individual. Keeping it in view, we have to acknowledge that it is the inner world of an individual which is Real and Certain and a reflection of the same is found in the out.

 When we divide the sensation, one of the parts is the Appearance or Sighting which is not possible without presence of form and figure, shape and features in the outside. The other remaining parts of sensation are denominated as Fantasy, Thought and Imagination. All these are collectively known, in Sufism, as the Vision (Roya). It means that the sensation could be divided into two parts; Royat (Appearance) and the Roya (Vision). Thus the universe is a compositional collection of these very two components.

 If we, considering everything of existents of the world as a particle, examine the internal and the external structure of its being, ultimately a Light (noor) containing all the values of life would be found there. Stimulation of this Light, in terms of Sufism, is called Germination (Bida’at). Germination is the name of a sort of biological pressure which commencing from the First Conscious effectively casts its influence upto the Fourth Conscious.


Loh O Qalam

Qalandar Baba Auliay (R.A)

Alshaikh Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi, Chief Editor of the monthly Roohani Digest, the renowned spiritual scholar, founder of the chain of Muraqba Halls the world over has had the honour of learning the spiritual sciences from his spiritual mentor, His Divine Grace Qalander Baba Auliya, the sage of this age. In order to teach him the spiritual sciences Qalander Baba Auliya made Alshaikh Azeemi to pen down the words that he used to narrate. Alshaikh Azeemi being a devoted disciple not only noted the contents but also did his best to understand what he was taught. The eventual out come of his dedicated work took the form of the ‘Loh-o-Qalum’, the first ever book that comprises the whole syllabus of the spiritual science. Who else was more suitable to explain the contents of this document but Alshaikh Azeemi, the very able student of Qalander Baba Auliya. Dissemination of that knowledge, which is the legacy of prophets and had reached him in disciplic succession, has become an obsession for Alshaikh Azeemi because, according to him, this knowledge is the only elixir and the antidote for the ailing humanity in present times.
