Days and Nights

It has been mentioned that the Conscious (the Inevitable Being) keeps on repeating itself and ensuring this repetition one single point is divided into two and then each one of the two is further divided into two. This multiplication or the geometrical progression of the points is taking place perpetually. Mathematical approach to understand this would be that these countless points take the form of a circle individually. Each of these points as its own place is a circle. All these circles jointly form a big circle. This big Circle is the universe. The same is called the Circulatory Movement. It is important to remember that the Circulatory Movement is only a repetition of the Conscious. This repetition has been mentioned in the Holy Quran.

“ To Him belongeth all that dwelleth (or lurketh) in the Night and the Day, and He is the One Who heareth and Knoweth all”   

( Surah VI Verse 13)

Whatsoever that lives and dwells in the day and the night is owned by Allah. Whatsoever is there in the senses and the perception of man have been divided into two portions. One, that pertains to the Nocturnal senses and the other which pertains to the Diurnal senses. These are the two circles or these could be called the two planes of the Circulatory Movement. Both these planes are the provenances of different set of senses. For this reason alone Allah has used two separate words; Day and Night. Here it would be worth mentioning, that the Nocturnal senses are considered unreal by calling them darkness, slumber or sleep. But this concept is refuted by the words of Allah, the Most High, and it is proved that both the Nocturnal and the Diurnal Senses are equally solid and real. It would be disclosed even from a slight analysis that the Diurnal Senses are collectively evident and the Nocturnal, individually. But, this fact also cannot be overlooked that the collective evidence is prone to many mistakes just like the individual evidence.

It is important to mention, here, that the collective aspect of the sight is known as Objectivity and the individual aspect is called the Subjectivity. Foundations of times are laid by the very two phases. When one individual is introduced with another one, this very introductory phase becomes Time. This introduction is an activity of the Self. When the Self watches any of its significance a lull follows. In fact, this lull is a style of witnessing which is called Time by the human intellect. It is not so that something or a moment passes by rather it is only the thinking approach, a way to conceive, a style of the Sight.

One of the sayings of Allah, the Most High is, “ I am the All-observing, I am the All-hearing”. That is, the sight and the hearing are My sole property. Another saying is, “I granted sight and hearing to man”. Both these saying lead us to only one conclusion that man sees and hears through the powers of sight and hearing of Allah. It is to be kept in mind that hearing and seeing of Allah is Real whether it is taking place in the Supreme Being of Allah or in the human beings. Only man could experience illusion in seeing or hearing. Because, that which is from Allah man associates it to be something of his own and this causes him to make a mistake in understanding something.

It is not possible that an almond could appear a fig before the sight of a person. He is constrained to see the fig, a fig. He may use his own false opinion in deriving meanings. He can say that fig tree is a useless tree or a harmful tree. Allah, the Most High, has stated in the holy Quran,

“He is the One Who made ye from one Self”. (Surah VII Verse 189)

The human species has been made according to a secret scheme. The secret scheme that is operative behind the Manifestations has been called the one (single) self, by Allah, the Most High. This secret scheme is responsible for creation of those impressions in the depth of the visible darkness and light which are felt and observed by our senses in the form of Manifestations. Now this is impossible that we could refuse to perceive these impressions or deny to acknowledge their presence. The only thing that we could do one our own is to treat right as wrong and take what is false as true. Misconception man goes astray from the right path. 


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.
