Extermination of A Second. - Survival of Billion Years

The hills which according to the geologists were formed in billions of years were destroyed within a second without leaving any trace of their existence. Who could deny that one second of extermination swallowed up the survival of billions of years. The hills were the representation of billions of years' survival and the perishment of the hills represent one second.

Similarly, one femto-second (1 X 10-12  Second) of the Black Point is encompassing the total temporal period of Time i.e., Time between Eternity to Infinity. The perception which we usually exercise cannot observe the femto-second; the trillionth part of the second but the perception which can do so has been indicated in the Sura Qadr, of the Holy Quran.

“We have indeed revealed this message in the Night of Power, And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is? The Night of Power is better than a thousand months, therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's Permission on every errand. Peace.. .. . This is until the rise of Morn!".

The Night of Power is that night in which the Perception of the Black Point descends. This Perception is seventy thousand or more times greater than the ordinary perception as one night has been proportioned to one thousand months which equals to seventy thousand times. Man, with the help of this perception can observe the Cosmic Soul, angels and the Affairs which are secrets of creation.

This Perception in Sufism is called the 'Openness' (Fathah). Man in this state of the Openness observes and understands the Eternal affairs in the state of wakefulness. Witnesses the formation and creation of heavenly bodies located at the Remotest distances of the universe and watches them fading out on completion of their lives. Incalculable systems of galaxies are fashioned before his eyes and he witnesses them expiring after living through immeasurable ages. Sometimes, One second of Openness circumscribes the total period from Eternity to Infinity.

 What is perception?

 Tom says, I read the newspaper; I wrote a letter; I had my meal; Who said it? Who read the newspaper ? Who write the letter? Who has his meal?

 Tom did all this but it is the mind of Tom which is stating and comprehending all this. What Tom did is only known to the mind of Tom. Knowing is nothing more than the information received. Reading newspaper, writing letter etc. etc are information. When these informations are ignored, what Tom did; who he is; all becomes meaningless. The fact is that the mind of Tom received informations. Two agencies are worth mentioning here, the informations and the mind. The informer of the information is the mind and the recipient of the information is also the mind.

 Unit is only one which has two sides. Mind informs that the age of the hills that were destroyed was two billion years. Considering one year as one unit, the information pertains to two billion units which means that the perception divided a feeling into two billion parts. It is an information regarding the duration of two billion years. The mind of the listener of this information practically felt the duration or length of two billion years, this means that a scale for two billion years is present in one second of perception. How, when and by whom were these two billion years spent, nobody, can tell this. It is merely an information – an information whose perceptual duration is not more than one second. In our knowledge, mind is the only agency which is called the universe. Christ has stated, “God said, light!’ and there is was”. In the Quranic Words, “Be! and it is”.

When we cast a glance over the words of a book, it is as if the light falls upon them because we cannot see anything other than the light. When we study a book, we study the light and whatever we understand is the understanding of the light. Because, when we would be studying light, obviously, we would be understanding the light only. And whatever we are understanding is only an information. Thus, we have to conclude that both; the information and the light, are one and the same. Now the thing to see is that what is the location of the information. If we could find out the location of the information then we would be able to understand time and space.

According to the astronomers, there Is no solar system whose light could reach us in less than four years’ time. They also tell us about the stars whose light reaches us after ten million years; even more. It means that the star which we are witnessing in this present moment is an existence of ten million years ago. It also means that  the present moment is a moment of ten million years ago. It invites us to deliberate as to where the intermediatory ten million years have gone.

Be it known, that these ten million years’ Time is only a way to perception which has divided one single moment into ten million years. The way perception sees the past ten million years in the present moment, similarly, it can observe the ten million years henceforth in the same present moment. Thus, this is also provided that the whole temporal time – the period of time from eternity to infinity – is only one single moment which has been sub-divided into different phases. This very division is called Space, that is, the total period between Eternity to infinity is Space and all the incidences witnessed by the universe are incarcerated within the divisions of one single moment. It is the wonder-working of the perception which has made one single moment to have the form of Eternity to infinity.

 Where did perception come from?

 As mentioned earlier, it is merely an information.

 From where is this information received?

 It has been graciously stated by Allah, the Most High, “I granted the sight, I granted the Hearing”. This means, He granted us the information.

What is the ratio of the ordinarily received informations with that of the given ones?

Perhaps, something around cipher. The information actually received are negligibly limited and meager in numbers.

If we are desirous of having information of larger vista and greater magnitude, there is no alternate for the purpose except the spiritual sciences and for the spiritual sciences we have to seek guidance of the Holy Books. 


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.
