Correlation of Memory

Allah, the Most High has united all the four Realms in the Nucleus of the Human Self.

(Here Knowledge is to be taken as the Knowledge of Reality or the Presented Knowledge only).

No.   1. The Realm of Light (Noor).

No.   2. The Realm of Sub-Conscious or the Realm of the Intimates Angels.

No.   3. The Realm of Behest.

No.   4. The Created Realm. (Aalem-e-Khalq).

To explain the Realm of Behest it could be said that our universe is a conglomeration of the celestial bodies, tripartite and many other creatures and existents etc. All the components and the individuals of the universe admittedly have an affinity with one another, whether this infinity could be observed by the material eye or not yet the existence of the same has to be acknowledged.

It is a routine that when we cast the glance towards something we see it. Human mind considers as an ordinary thing and does not pay heed to it as to why it occurs after all. In Sufism and spiritualism we have to look for the cause and reason of a thing no matter how unimportant and insufficient it may appear. When we see a thing could be cognize it, we comprehend it properties properly. The comprehension is related with the intensity of the concentrative use of the mind. To explicate this thing we can say that when an observer looks at something its ability of cognition of the object transfers into the sight as if the observer cognizes the observed object, after becoming the same thing. This is the law of the Realm of Behest.


We see a rose flower, At that moment we have to transform ourselves into the properties of the rose, only then we can understand the rose. Thence we have the cognition of a rose flower.

Each and every individual of the Created Realm has this intrinsic ability of transforming the core of his self into the nucleus of any other thing and thus can capture anything of his choice, as and when, and as many times, as it may deem fit to him. Nucleus of the self of every individual, according to this law, is a collection of properties of the entire universe.

Yet another quality of the Realm of Behest is that when we happen to hear the name of something, for instance, we hear the name; Mr. Jones. Now, the word Mr. Jones or its spellings would not occur to our mind rather the person and the personality of Jones will come to our mind. The personality which is a collection of various qualities and properties. The nature and the features of Mr. Jones will both be found associated with the qualities of Mr. Jones which are known to us. This is the second Law regarding the understanding of the Realm of Behest. This law has two parts. Comprehension of one part is regulated by the Conscious. The total personality of Mr. Jones which has evolved since Eternity to Infinity and the conscious had been at a loss to grasp it, remain in the comprehension of the Unconscious. Unconscious is responsible for the comprehension of this remaining part of Mr. Jones. If a percipient wants to cognize the whole property of Mr. Jones since Eternity to Infinity he has to focus his conscious in the Unconscious thus causing the transfer of the Unconscious into the conscious. This is only possible when one has the cognition of One’s Ego because it is the movement of the Ego which after focusing Unconscious transform the proceedings of the Unconscious activities into the form of imagination. This state has been given the name of The memory’ by Khwaja Baha-o-Din Naqshband (May Allah be Merciful to him).          

It seems necessary to mention few things about the religions of the world during the course of our discussion regarding the Realm of Behest.

Those who happened to have knowledge regarding the mysterious hidden forces and mystical powers in the early ages, keeping certain beliefs in view, had evolved a system of education concerning the soul and spirit. The World has seen many such systems so far.

In the primary ages of the world when the population of the inhabitations and their respective needs and requirements had not out grown, these spiritual teachings could not take the form of a widely spread global movements.

In the primeval era many people used to observing the metaphysical unseen things which pretend to the Realm of Behest. Those people interpreted their observations in the limited perspective of their tribal ways of life. Since life pattern of various classes of the human race and the wide scenario of the world had not been present them, therefore, their interpretation of the facts of the Realm of Behest revealed upon them involved only few components of the human senses ensuing their followers and disciples indulge in the misconceived and vague thoughts after the life of these mystic people… All the idolatrous and paganistic religions originated in this way. The followers who contributed and shared the preparation of the outlines of religions of that era themselves were not familiar with the facts of the Realm of Behest had laid the foundations of the wrong beliefs, sorcery and monkism during the course of relaying the things learnt from their leaders onto others. They never hesitated in declaring the manifestation as the sources of the original lights. Examples of this type of religions are the religions originating in Babylon, Jainism and among the Aryan religions many religions influenced by the Hindu Vedantism. Buddhism too finally resulted in monkism because of the similar attitude of the followers of Gautama Buddha.

Mongoloid religions are devoid of the shade of Oneness (Unity) because of the same factors. Almost the same factors caused the Taoism associated with witchcrafts and delusions. The Heliolators, the moon-worshippers and the believers of Zoroastrianism, the Mongoloid religions had either considered the Realm of Behest based upon the two principals of Good (Divine) and Bad (Evil) or declared the Realm of Behest centralized in the Manifestations. These attitudes and trends gradually established the development of the Fetishism, Idolatry and Paganistic beliefs and human nature started developing an aversion for the material life altogether. This fact cannot be ignored that the material life is, anyhow, half of the total life. If any religious system has no place for this half of the life, the whole structure of the economic life would fall to the ground. In the event of this type of situation, religion is to be considered as something idealistic and impracticable. When the infrastructure of life is released and liberated from the clutches of the religious bands confusion and astraying in the beliefs would be inevitable.

In this way deviation from moderation made so many religions unacquainted and non-familiar with the facts of the Realm of Behest and that of the Created World. Consequently, mankind and humanity was left with no other way but to retaliate and express its reaction because of the demands of the Created World. And, in the period of last five thousand years such religions started to come into being which aimed only for the State, its government and the material life. Confucianism, Shintoism and the doctrines of the Greek Philosophers especially the teachings of Plato and his Contemporaries and Communism of the present age are significant amongst such beliefs. All of these were founded because the prevailing religions had ignored the wants and demands of the Created World and the reaction of the same resulted in atheism and general irreligiousness. In the Holy Quran at various places such immoderations and transgression have been pointed out.

Collection of those beliefs which cause the actions and deeds come into being is known as Religion.

Many religions are there which are devoid of the concept of Allah e.g. Jainism and Communistic religions that have been existing since the past millennia till date.

Human intellect is bi-faceted and di-hedral. Its one aspect thinks about the outside and the other thinks about the inner self. The first side after observing the manifestations establishes and ascertains the limits of the experiences and the sensations regarding them. The second side contemplates about the self’ and cognizes these facts that are revealed in the depths of the manifestations. The first side is used very commonly, all its styles and ways of thinking are altogether different from the Revelation and the Inspirations. Whereas the second side which is enveloping the first side is connected with the Revelation and the Inspiration. Thus, the second side i.e. the Realm of Behest is encompassing the first side i.e. the Created Realm.

The first side attempts to comprehend the materialism by conducting a search into the Objects and the things, and the second side reveals the facts and the realities by following the paths of the prophetic knowledge. All the religions that have been founded on the basis of the first side of the human mind mostly consisting of the values of atheism, idolatry, fetishism, materialism and the philosophical doctrines. All such religions determine their goals in strict accordance with the Material or the Acquired Knowledge. With the exception of the Middle east these are mostly practiced the world over. Thousands of such religions have been annihilated yet many are still surviving. None of them provide any facility for the Realm of Behest, that is, the hereafter life of the self, rather they create such complications of perception and experience which simply result in the Eternal sufferings of the soul.

Middle East, the most ancient abode of the Semitic nations, had always been a center of those religions which originated under the influence of the Revelation and were practiced according to the definitions of the laws of the Realm of Behest i.e. the Knowledge of the Self. Most popular and established religions amongst these are Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All these three were originated and practiced by the Semitic nations. Last of them is Islam as, with its coming the prophet hood has come to an end.

[Note: I am writing this book under the auspicious command of the Holy Prophet, the Prophet of Islam (Peace and blessing of Allah be upon him). This command has been received from him in the Owaisian Style. Part of the same ‘Directive’ is forbidding me from commenting on any religion, therefore, I cannot discuss the Semitic and Non-Semitic Religions any more. (Author)]

The Realm of Behest according to the Knowledge of the Self can be exemplified by a rose that has ever been viewed by our eyes and the image of the same is preserved forever in our mind. And thus, whenever we intend, that rose can be brought back in the Created Realm from the Realm of Behest, that is, its image can be brought back in our mind and the same could be considered as an individual of the Rose Family as it has features and shared of colors. The features belong to the Realm of Behest and the Colors are associative with the Created Realm. In fact, the features of the species are the essence of the thing (herein rose). They remain in the Realm of Behest constantly, and permanently. Existence of its features in the Realm of Behest is a composition of the ingredients of Time. This depends upon the creative ability of our Self to color the features as and when we may wish to do so. In the Realm of Behest, we and the rose are both just one Self. Those properties of Single Self which are common in the rose and our Self causes the rose to enter into our imagination after producing colors in the rose according to our Will and determination. These psychic potentialities of the Realm of Behest are enjoyed by every man in general. On trying to make these psychic potentialities extraordinary the ‘Commanding Will of the Self’ induces the rose into the limits of the cosmos and that rose appears in the world after becoming solid and concrete spatial reality.

This law could be analyzed in the following manner.

Reality ------------à Ultra-Reality ------------à Extra Ultra-Reality.

The Extra Ultra-Reality is the Supreme Being of Allah.

The Ultra-Reality is the Beatific Visions of Allah, the Most Exalted.

The Reality is the Attribute of Allah, the Most High.

The Ultra-Reality is also denominated as the Indispensable Being (Wajeb-ul-Wajood) and is a state of Beatific Visions of Allah. After that is the Reality itself which is also called the Realm of Light’ (Aalam-e-Noor). The very same Realm of Light has been referred to in the Holy Quran, “Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth …”

It would be wrong to consider that Indispensable Being is the Supreme Being of Allah. The Indispensable Being could only be considered as the Beatific Vision at the most. This Beatific Vision is the Basis of the Attributes and is associated with the Supreme Being. Next to the Indispensable Being are the Attributes called the Reality and are associated with the Beatific Visions of the Supreme Being.

Three degrees of the Cognition of Allah have been stated in the Holy Quran; 

No. 1. The Supreme Being of the Almighty,

No. 2. The Realm of Behest which was brought into existence by uttering ‘Kun’ (Be!).

 “Verily when He intends a thing, He Commands it to Be and there it is” (Surah 36 Verse 82, Quran) and

No. 3. The Real of Specified Behest. It is the state about which it is stated, ‘I breathed My Spirit into Adam’s moulded form’.

The Supreme Lord Creator

(The God Head)

The Realm of Beatific Vision of the Supreme Lord Creator the Indispensable Being----Latent and Obscure Subtleties.

The Realm of General Behest ---- The Beatific Visions of Attributes ---- Arcanum and Spiritic Subtleties.

The Creative Realm --------- The Subtleties of Heart and Self. 



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.
