When someone excels in this state of Meditation, he finds it difficult to keep his eyes closed during the observation of the Realm of Behest because a sort of pressure which is intolerable from the eyes forces them to remain open. Eyelids find themselves incapable of accommodating the lights radiated by the nucleus of the Self and spontaneously become active which result in the activation of the process of blinking. When this strolling and prambulation starts taking place with the open eyes it is known as The Openness’ (Fatah). 

It should be clearly understood that the movement of the Self remains limited within the worldly thoughts and activities as long as it remains burdened with the worldly demands and wants, but once it is relieved from the burden of worldly feelings and sensations it rises towards the World Unseen and studies the life styles of that world and thus acquaint itself with the Spiritual Realm, observes and understands the solar systems of that world and many celestial systems of the heavens. Introduces itself with the Angles. Becomes aware of the things which are hiding in its own Real Self, recognizes those potentialities that are lying within its reach and access. The facts of the Realm of Behest are revealed upon him. He observes what type of lights are being used in the formation of the universe and what types of Lights (Anwar) are supporting these lights. And, the Beatific Vision also is revealed upon his conscious which the actual root of the lights (Anwar) that are supporting the lights.

 In order to help a novice to understand the Realm of Behest it could be exemplified as follows: -

 If fireworks are displayed in a moonlight night the lights of the fireworks will be encompassed by the moonlight and many patterns and designs will appear to standing out in the lights and scintillations of the fireworks. Features of fireworks and the designs so formed will be based upon the lights and the lights will further be staying upon the moon light. If, now the moonlight be considered as the Beatific Visions of the Supreme Self or the Realm of Specified Behest then the lights of the fireworks would be called the Realm of General Behest and the Attributes. And the patterns based upon the light would be considered as Nasmic Realm, the descended Beatific Vision of the Attributes, the out-lined limits or the periphery of the patterns would be termed as the individuals or the Universe, that is, Nasma is based upon the Beatific Vision of the Attributes and Beatific Vision of the Attributes is based upon the Beatific Vision of the Supreme Self. When movement takes places in Nasma it produces the various forms of Time and Space, circles and the impressions of the Dimensions. These impressions of dimensions consist of the sun, the moon, the stars and all the other created existents in the universe. When a percipient (Aarif) starts his prambulation he does not enter the universe from the external sides but enters it through the core of his Self which is a conglomeration of all the three aforementioned realms. Unification of Being commences from this point. When a percipient focuses his sight penetratingly at this point, a window of light opens and he finds himself on such a highway that leads in all direction of universe through countless passages. He, now, gradually acquaints with all the solar and celestial systems step by step, enjoys stays in incalculable stars and planets. Observes every type of creatures. Avails the opportunity of familiarizing himself with the ins and outs of every impression. Gradually he has the knowledge of the facts and realities of actual roots of the universe. The secrets of the creation are revealed upon him and the laws of nature transpire upon his mind. First of all his known self is understood by him and then, the formats of the spiritualism are accommodated by his perception. Beatific Vision of Supreme Being and Attributes are perceived by him. It is completely understood by him that how the universe had come into being when the word ‘Kun’ was uttered by Allah, the Most High and High Manifestation are peregrinating expanse after expanse in phase and stages. He witnesses that he is also one of the travellers of the caravan of theses existent.

 Be it known that the aforementioned prambulation in not conducted on the ways and Paths of the outside, it traces can only be found in the fathomless depths of the light kindling in the center of the heart. Not that this world should be considered an unreal world of the fantasies and imaginations, it is certainly not so. All the facts are realities which are existing in this world are found embodied in forms and shapes in that world of reality. 

 In fact every fashioned form has three existences; one in the Beatific Vision of Supreme Being, the other in the Beatific Vision of the attributes and the last one in the Created Realm.

 "Nay! Surely the Record of the wickeds is preserved in the 'Sijjeen' (Prison). And what will explain to thee what this Sijjeen is? There is a Register fully inscribed. Woe, that Day, to those that deny - Those that deny the Day of Judgement. And none can deny it but the Transgressor beyond bounds, the Sinner! When our Signs are rehearsed to him, he says, 'Tale of ancient!' By no means! but on their hearts is the stain of the ill which they do. Verily, from the light of their Lord, that Day, will they be veiled. Further, they will enter in the Fire of Hell. Further, it will be said to them, ' This is the Reality which ye rejected as false!. Nay, verily the Record of Righteous is preserved in Illiyeen. (High Places). And what will explain to thee what Illeyeen is? There is a Register fully inscribed. To which bear witness those nearest to Allah. Truly the Righteous will be Bliss, on Thrones of Dignity they will command the sight of all things. Thou wilt recognize in their faces the beaming brightness of Bliss. Their thirst will be slaked Pure Wine sealed. The seal there of will be of musk and for this let those aspire, who have aspirations. With it will be given a mixture of Tasneem. A spring from the waters where of drink those Nearest to Allah"

                                      (Quran Surah 83 Verse 7 to 28)

 " Is it not He to Create or to Command (to Govern)?"

                                      (Surah VII Verse 54)

 According to the above cited verses all these three existences are commanded by Allah, the Most Exalted, for their deeds and actions and this command is in the form of information.

 "We Created and Commanded!" it is comprising two sides. One side is enacted through “Allah is the Light of earth and heavens” and the other side is enforced through the movement which is technically known as "Nasma". " Allah is the light.. .. .. .. .. " is that base upon which the first command ‘Kun’ (Be!) is established. Manifestation of this ‘Kun’ descend in the form of radiant silhouette or to say this is the consideration of the Creation. Then the details of the movement Nasma take their shape according to the will and Knowledge of Allah, The Most High. The radiant silhouette is encompassing every impression and there is fixed and appointed level of details in every impression which is generally known as the nature of the thing (Formational Construction). The nature of the thing is the radiant silhouette is epitome of mercury. Both the silhouette and the level of the Movement i.e. the epitomes of mercury are conspicuously observed in the close examination of the creation. The silhouette (Hiola) is the radiant impression which is invariant and the epitomes of the mercury., like the surface of mercury, are a Motion which is in a state of continuous variation. In this variable surface time space and the details and implementation of the affairs are found. There is a sort of luster of this surface upon which the reflection of the Commands fall continuously. This very reflection is termed as the Movement. This movement produces a variety of cycles of impressions using pauses. The cycles have been termed as 'the written book' by Allah in the Holy Quran. The cycles are constructed of the ascent and descent of the movement. This level of the movement which is called the mind on the one hand ascends upto the core of the self and on the other hand it descends to the depths of the shadow reflections falling upon the lustrous surface. The state of Ascension in human terminology is the dream. The ascent and descent both the movements take place according to the signals of nature (Divine Power). Every individual of the universe is at its beck and call, therefore all the fashioned form of the universe sleep and awake. The state of Ascension, the somnolence (Intuition) brings closer to the Supreme Self and the state of descent, the wakefulness (intellect) takes away from the supreme self. Those two are the essential components of the existing life which are the determinants of the life. Every fashioned form of the universe bounded by these determinants. Gnostics peregrinate in somnolence by means of Muraqbah where as in the phenomenal world travelling is only possible through the mobility of the limbs. The Quranic programme stresses upon the protection of both the components.

 A few words about the basis of the Quranic Programme are essential. “Establish 'Salat' prayers and pay 'Zakat”, this has been reiteratingly commanded by Allah, the Most Exalted in the Holy Quran. 


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.
