Law for attraction

Thus, every individual, living or non-living, enjoys the sense of the community life because of the Super-Formation. Warmth of the sun is felt by a goat because both are associated to each other within the limits of the Persona Major. If someone does not possess the understanding to the level of the Persona Major he cannot recognize a member of another species nor its usage would be known to him. Man’s memory preserves the species of the stars when the same sighted by the man’s eye for the first time. This ability of the memory is acquired by virtue of the Persona Major but when a fellow of his own species is witnessed he feels an attraction toward him. This property of attraction is the characteristic trait of the Persona Minor. A line of distinction can be drawn between the Sub-Formation and the Super-Formation. The former is the name of the Attraction of the Nearness and the latter is the name of the Remote Attraction.

Mutual relationship of the Remote Attraction is produced by the current of the Beatific Vision in all types of creatures. The same Beatific Vision on its descent becomes the Attraction of the Nearness after taking the form of the Noor (the invisible light). In its third stage the Beatific Vision is converted into the ordinary light in the mutual attraction of the two person (individuals) of the same species is brought into action.

Involuntary activity, in the spiritual world is named as the Attraction and a voluntary activity is named as the Action. All the involuntary activities take place because of the will of the Persona Major and all the voluntary activities of an individual take place because of the individual’s own will. As far as the properties of the channels of Black Draft, Abstraction and Evidence work in human self its name is the Persona Major and in enforcement of these properties is collective, whereas placement of the human self becomes individual from where the properties of the Channel of Manifestation (Neher-e-Tazheer) comes into action.

 Any metaphysical change that takes place in the limits of the Channels of Black Draft, Abstraction and the Evidence is known as the Wonder-making (Kramat) whereas any metaphysical activity in the limits of the Channel of the Manifestation is known as Sorcery (Istadraj).

 As mentioned earlier, Allah, the Most High as stated in the Holy Quran, “Allah is the Light of the earth and the heavens”. To elaborate this point further: All the existents whether they are of higher cadre or of the lower grades are created from one single origin. Order of the Structural Formation can be elucidated by the following example.

 Such as, there is a big globe of glass and enclosed is it another globe. There is a third globe of glass contained therein in the second one. Movement is exhibited in the third globe through form and figure, matter and body. The first or outer-most globe in terms of Sufism is called the Channel of Black Draft (Neher-e-Tasweed) or the Beatific Vision. This Beatific Vision keeps on flowing intermittently through each and every particle of the existents in order to feed their origin (Basis). The second globe is called the Channel of Abstraction (Neher-e-Tajreed) or Noor which also flows like Beatific Vision intermittently through every particle of the universe. The third globe is called the Channel of Evidence (Neher-e-Tashheed) or the light and its duty is to maintain life. The fourth globe is that of the Nasma which is a conglomeration of gases. Concentration of the very Nasma is responsible for the material forms and figures and manifestations.

The same thing has been stated in the Bible in following words.

ACTS:        Chapter 17,        Verse 24 to 28 
 No.1          Verse 24

God that made the world and all things therein,
seeing that He is the Lord of the earth and heavens, dwelleth not in temples made with hands"

The Channels of the Black Drafts and Abstraction have been mentioned in this Verse. The Creative Power of Allah is encompassing every particle of the universe. Enforcement of the same Power is called, according to spiritualism the Channel of Abstraction or the Light (Noor).

(Made the World and all the things therein=The Channel of Black Drafts-Being Lord of the earth and heavens=the Channel of Abstraction) No. 2. Verse: 25

“Neither is worshipped with men's hands as though He needed anything,seeing He giveth to all life, and breath and all things;”

(Life=The Channel of Evidence, All things =The Channel of Manifestation (Neher-e-Tazheer) or the Nasma) 

No. 3. 
The Channel of Evidence or the light which has been termed by the Gospel as the life, is being continuously bestowed since Eternity (the Remotest Beginning) to Infinity (the Remotest Ending).

No. 4. The current of the Channel of Manifestation which is also named as Aura (Nasma) keeps the material bodies of the universe guarded and kinetically energized.

Note: (a) All these four Controls of Allah are permanent, constant and continuous. If any one of these Controls is disconnected the universe would be destroyed, whether it is the control of the Creativity, Ownership, Bestowal of life or that of the Grant of Nasma.


No.1. The Unconscious of the Universe, Channel of Black Drafts.

No.2. The Conscious of the Universe, the Channel of Abstraction.

No. 3. The will of the Universe, Channel of Evidence.

No. 4. The Movement of the universe is the Channel of Manifestation.

Note: (b) All the movements are the actions of Nasma. For instance, a person claims, "I ate" or "I wrote", he never says that My mouth ate' or My hand wrote'. All the actions are obviously claimed to be conducted by the Nasma and the same is responsible for the performance of the good or the evil. Verses 27 and 28 explain the same.

That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us; "(The Channel of abstraction) For in Him we live, (The Channel of evidence) and Move, (The Channel of Manifestation) and have our being (The Channel of Black Drafts).

Note: (c) Both the verses are also indicative of the four Channels, one of which is the Channel of Manifestation or the Nasma. The Same thing has been stated by the Holy Prophet (PBUH) when he said. "One who recognizes his self, cognizes his Lord". This means that the Lord is very much adhering to the rational self. Here it could occur to the reader that Good and Evil all are created by Allah. It is true, Islam testifies the same but Allah being the Creator of the Good and the Evil cannot be held responsible for performance of any deed especially when man has been granted the authority to do good or bad. First example of the same was the prohibition of approaching the Prohibited Tree for Adam. It clearly indicates that before imposing the prohibition, Adam was granted the authority whether he likes to approach the Prohibited Tree or not. Obviously in such a case to be the Creator of the Good and Evil is Allah's Attributive characteristic but it is man's own choice whether he do good or commit against it.

We shall now discuss the potentialities of Nasma',. Certain parts of this discussion are special references regarding the Sorcery (Istadraj). 

It is the verdict of the Holy Quran that the Command of Allah is enforced since Eternity to Infinity and Allah is Encompassing every thing.

Ah! Indeed, are they in doubt concerning the meeting with their Lord? Lo, indeed it is He that doth encompass all things". (Verse 54; Surah XLI)

It is impossible for anything to be out of the Knowledge of Allah and to infringe with the Command of Allah. In other words one record is that of the Knowledge which is an Attribute of Allah and one is that of the Command which is cognition of Allah.

Allah's Cognition is rooted in times immemorial and it will last like Allah, forever. Hence, both these records are present in Allah's Attribute of Knowledge and the Attribute of the Command. The Attribute of the Knowledge is called 'The Knowledge of the Pen' and the 'Preserved Scripturum' is the name of the Attribute of the Command. Existence of both these records is indicative of such an Unseen World from where begins this world of ours. All the Commands of the Preserved Scripturum are present in the Unseen World in the form of Illustrations and the same descent in detail, according to the Elohistic Knowledge, in the Phenomenal world i.e., the material world. According to the Ouranic Words, Allah has stated. "I have created every thing with two sides". This descent also has two sides. One is the Angels who get the Commands enacted and the other side is the Creatures of the Phenomenal World who act upon these Commands.

The four Channels are ascribable to four Realms: -

The range of the Channel of the Black Drafts is the Realm of Divinity (Lahoot).

Range of Channel of Abstraction is the Realm of Omnipotency (Jabroot).

Range of the Channel of Evidence is the Angelic Realm (Malakoot).

And the, range of the Channel of Manifestation is the Phenomenal Realm (Nasoot).

The Realm of Divinity is that circle in which Elohistic Knowledge is present in the form of the Unseen. Within this circle of the Beatific Vision there are incalculable rings, which after emerging from the tiniest point expand and spread to encircle the whole universe. Every Point of the Beatific Vision when it converts into a ring, it is bigger and larger than any formerly existing ring constituted from any point. These countless rings of the Beatific Vision are the Basis of all the bases of the universe. This 'Unseen' can be termed as that which is Above the Ultra-conscious (Unseen of the Unseen). Basis of the species of the Universe originates from these very rings of the Beatific Vision which is the basis of the Unconscious. If we look for the Formational Construction of the potentialities of all the existents collectively, our search would finally encounter the rings of the Beatific Vision which would be visible only to the sight of the soul which is the origin (basis) of Creation.

When this Beatific Vision descends, it takes the form of the Concept, the Formational Structure of the Species of the universe. Generally speaking, it could be termed as the Unconscious (Unseen). The limits of such Formation in Sufism are known as the Channel of Abstraction which after descending from its limits becomes the Conscious and the limits of the Conscious has been named as the Channel of the Evidence. This Channel of Evidence, after descending from its limits, enters into the limits of the Tangible Realm which is also known as the Phenomenal World or the Material world. This is the world which is the Manifestation of the Movement and the same, in terms of Sufism, is called the Manifested (Mazhar). 


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.
