Every Name is a Collection of Three Beatific Visions

Every Name of Allah, in fact, is a Beatific Vision (Tajalli) which represents a specific Attribute of Allah accompanying Beatific Visions of both the Attributes of Mercy and Omnipotency. Thus, with Beatific Vision of every Attribute two more Beatific Visions are there. To wit, every Name is a collection of three Beatific Visions. One of them is that of the Attribute represented by that name, other is that of the Attribute of Mercy and the third one is that of the Attribute of Omnipotency. Therefore any Beatific Vision is denominated as Appellation.

At this point, it must be clearly understood that every appellation, as a whole, represents two things; the Beatific Vision and the Attribute of the Beatific Vision. When any of the Appellations of Allah is recited mentally or orally, a Beatific Vision with its Attribute is activated. This activation or the movement is called knowledge which is actually a reflection of the knowledge of Allah. This movement comprises three factors.

First one is the Beatific Vision which descends in the Latent Subtlety. 

Second one is the Attribute of the Beatific Vision which descends in the Arcanum Subtlety.

Third one is the Formation of the Attribute of Beatific Vision which descends in the Arcanum.

Third one is the Formation of the Attribute of Beatific Vision which descends in the subtlety of Heart and the very same is termed as sight. And, the various consecutive movements of the same component taking place in the Subtlety of Heart are termed as speech and hearing, smell and smelling sense. Now this smell and the smelling sense through yet another movement attract the Subtlety of Self after transforming into features of colors. This attraction between the subtleties of Heart and Self is the action or the outcome.

In this way, three movements are enacted simultaneously by the soul. First movement is to know something, it descends in the Latent Subtlety. Second movement which descends in the Arcanum Subtlety is to feel. The third one which descends in the Subtleties of Heart and Self is urge and action.

Every movement commences from 'Sabita'; the Firmly Affixed Inscription and concludes at Jowviyah'; the Confluence. As soon as comprehension takes place in the Latent Subtlety of 'Sabita' it is recorded by the Obscure Subtlety. Then, as soon as feeling takes place in the Arcanum Subtlety of the Substantiality, the Subtlety of Spirit records it. And then its action takes place in the Subtlety of Heart of the Confluence it is recorded by the Subtlety of Self. 'Sabita' comprehended Substantiality felt and Confluence enacted it. All these three movements started ended and spontaneously Life, in this way, keeps on moving perpetually.

All Beatific Visions of knowledge pertaining to life of an individual are recorded in the Firmly Affixed Inscription, all Beatific Visions of thoughts are registered in the Substantiality and all the impressions of activities are recorded in the Confluence.

We, ordinarily, never bother to note that all existing bodies and individuals have a secret relation betwixt them. Although life of the universe depends upon this very relationship, it cannot be researched by scholars and experts of any sort except the spiritualists and psychists. This very interrelationship is the source of recognition of all the heavenly bodies and their inhabitants, living and non-living individuals.

When a star is sighted, we feel its visage through our sight. Countenance of the star never prevents our sight from looking at itself. It never forbids us from viewing it. Had there not been a hidden interrelationship, every star and every celestial scene would have caused one or the other hindrance in accepting our existence. All the individuals of the universe are linked with one another because of the very same obscure relationship.

This reality is revealed here that the whole universe is owned by only one single entity. Had the various bodies of the universe been possessed by different owners surely there would have been a clash over recognition of one another. Belongings of one would have never liked to be introduced with the possessions of the other one. The Holy Quran introduces the very Master by the name of Allah. Amongst all the Holy Appellations, the word 'ALLAH' is the personal innate name.

Personal innate name Allah is the name of the one who possesses the Rights of Ownership and the Attributive names are the denominations of the one having Omnipotent Rights. Both the Attributes of Allah; Mercy and Omnipotency have been mentioned above. Every Appellation enjoys the quality of Omnipotency and the personal innate name is indicative of the rights of ownership which, in terms of Sufism, is called Mercy. Therefore, every Attribute is bound to be associative with Allah's Attributes of Mercy and Omnipotency. These Attributes are the hidden relationship betwixt every existing individual of the universe. The sunlight cannot deny to serve the earthlings, for the simple reason that both; the sunlight and the earthlings are owned by the same One Deity. Besides the Rights of Ownership He is enjoying the Omnipotent Powers to Rule, therefore His Mercifulness and Omnipotency never tolerate any defiance on the part of His possessions in acknowledging the existence of one another. Because, in such a cause, His Omnipotent Authority would suffer a reproach. Thus, on every point of creation, these two Attribute of Allah; Mercifulness and Omnipotency, are bound to be predominating. Therefore, both these Attributes are the mutual link between the individuals of the universe.

 This fact is now revealed that the existence, arrangement and organization of universal system is governed by two Appellations of Allah, the Most High. One is Allah and the other is 'Qadeer' (Omnipotent) Each and every Attributive Appellation is associated with these two exalted Names. Had it not been so, it would not have been possible for the individuals of the universe to be acquainted with one another nor it could have been possible for them to serve one another.



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.
