There are three parts of the soul in the formation of creatures…. The Great soul, the Human soul and, the Animal soul. The Great Soul (Rooh-e-Azam) is composed of components of the Knowledge of the Incumbent.

The Human soul (Rooh-e-Azam) is made of components of the Knowledge of Unity and,

The Animal soul (Rooh-e-Haywani) consists of arranged components of the Ether.

The Great soul commences from the Latent subtlety (Latifa-e-Khaffi). It is a ring of light in which all the informations which are Real Text of all events since Eternity of Infinity. Record of expediences and secrets of creatures is preserved in this ring. This ring (of light) is called Sabita’ (Firmly Affixed Inscription).

Human soul commences from the arcanum Subtlety (Latifa-e-Sirri) and concludes at the subtlety of Spirit (Latifa-e-Roohi). This, too is a ring of light. Commands characterizing life are inscribed in this ring and this ring is termed as Aayan’ (Substantiality).

Animal soul commences from the Subtlety of Heart (Latifa-e-Nafsi). This is the third ring of light and is named as Jowviyah’ (confluence). Every activity of life is recorded in it. Both the components of an activity; the Command of Allah and the authority to be exercised by man and jinns are inscribed in the integrally.

All the three rings of light are infused in one another like three leaves and their collective name is the soul, the Lord’s Edict, Indivisible Entity or Man.

Subtlety is the name of that form and shape which express its meanings through its features e. G. The flame of candle is such a form in which brightness, color and heat have coalesced to from a flame; an observable from. Flame’ is the name given to a form resulting from the observation of these three components. Each component, exhibited in the flame is termed a subtlety.

Subtlety No. 1 is the brightness of the flame.

Subtlety No. 2. Is the color of the flame.

Subtlety No. 3 is the heat of the flame.

Collective name of all these three subtleties is the candle. When word candle’ is used by someone, literally the unified from of all these subtleties is meant by him.

In the same way, the human soul has six subtleties. First of them is the name of the film of Elohistic Knowledge. This film can be viewed in the lights of obscure Subtlety. Both these subtleties are collectively known as Sabita’. In this way there are two impositions of Sabita. One is the illustrative forms of the Elohistic Knowledge and the other is that light of the soul through which these illustrations are perused. In terms of Sufism both these impositions are collectively known as tadalla (Divine Inclination). The Divine Inclination, in fact, is the formations of Appellations or the names of Allah, the Most Sublime.

Appellations of Allah are those Attributes of Allah which descend in the form of a reflection of the Supreme Being. Every particle of the existents is encompassed by these Attributes in the form of Divine Inclination (Tadalla. Experiences of coming into being and undulation from this Divine Inclination. Destiny appointed by Allah is known by that person upon whom this reflection of the Elohistic Knowledge is revealed. This very Divine Inclination of the Beatific Vision is inscribed in the Firmly Affixed Inscription (Sabita).

The words Alif-Laam-Meem; the mystical letters appearing in the beginning of the second chapter of the holy Quran, are the interpretation of the link between the Creator and the creatures, of the link between the Creator and the creatures, that is, one who enjoys the understanding of mysteries of Alif-Laam-Meem can peruse of Allah’s Inclination. When someone having the Knowledge of Divine Inclination reads Alif-Laam-Meem all the mysteries and secrets incorporated in Surah Baqqara by Allah, the Most High, are revealed upon him. And through Alif-Laam-Meem all the fundamentals secrets, upon which the life of the existents is based, are revealed upon that person who is versed with Observation. He beholds the Attribute of Divine Inclination of Allah which is infused in the soul of every particle of the universe in the form of Beatific Vision. When someone with a keener sense of Observation finds Alif-Laam-Meem inscribed in rightly concludes that the lights of the Attribute of Divine Inclination are permeating this point. These very lights reveal all these events and happenings from Eternity to Infinity.

Exposure of inner recesses of Obscure Subtlety is the exposure of Latent Subtlety and both the subtleties combinatively are known as the Great Soul or Sabita (firmly Affixed Inscription). If the Firmly Affixed Inscription is considered to be a point or a leaf then one side of the leaf would be the Latent Subtlety and the other would be the obscure Subtlety. Obscure subtlety, in fact, is a short coded form of the Luminant inscription. When it is studied by a person with the Knowledge of secrets and mysteries he commands perception of all meanings contained therein. These meanings, by any chance, cannot be termed as terse because inspite of brevity of inscription it contains complete descriptions of all the expediences set out by Allah, The Most High. In mystical terms this very thing is called Appellation or the Knowledge of Pen. This Knowledge comprises of Allah and, the other is the Knowledge of Mystical Letters. 


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.
