Period or interval of time is the name of such a spatial state that is rotating on a linear path. When all the above mentioned four consciouses revolve in the linear direction, this revolution is known as Period, Interval of time or Time. But, when the revolution of these consciouses is directed towards a center it is known as Space. Both these states, the Linear rotation and the centripetal rotation take place simultaneously. Both these rotations are jointly and continuously producing movement in the conscious. We are sensuously familiar with the linear movement in the form of seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years and centuries. And, the rotational movement is known in the forms of the earth, the moon, the sun, the heavenly bodies and the solar systems etc. Both these states are unitedly known as the Period. In fact, a variation which is a combination of the Ultra-achromatic, the Achromatic, the monochromatic and the omnichromatic keeps on taking place in our senses. This variation commences from fantasy and after transforming into thought and imagination it takes the form of the feelings (senses). This variation, then, reverts and returns back taking the same route, that is, it has to convert back into imagination, thought and finally fantasy. Fantasy, Thought and the’ Imagination, all these three states occur on one side of the linear movement and the sensuous state takes place on that side of the rotational movement in which the linear movement occurs. Thus, the spatial and temporal both the variations occur in the same one point of the senses (feelings). The very same point is termed as the Period and this periodic process is eternal.


 Centralities of the aforementioned four consciouses have four separate and distinct lives. The Centrality of the Senses is known as the Phenomenal World. Centrality of imagination during the course of its descending movement is known as the Realm of Vision (Roya), Realm of Event or the Realm Of Illustrative Forms and during the ascent it is called the Realm of Spirits (souls) or the Realm of Purgatory (Illyeen and Sijjeen). The centrality of the Thought during the course of its descent is called the Origin (Mubdaa) and in its ascension the Resurrection and judgement (Hell and Paradise).


The first section of the conscious that has been named as Rah (Draught) is known as the Inevitable Being the remaining three sections are called ‘the Being’. There is no variation in the Inevitable Being (Wajib-ul- Wajood) but the linear and the rotational Revolution in the ’Being’ are unitedly called the Period or the Existent. Former of the two revolutions is the mutual connection of every particle of the universe. The universe and the situational states of the Cosmic Conscious are placed in this revolution. The rotational revolution is particular for the individual. Individual and his modes of existence are situated in this rotation but all the states of the individual are only a fractional part of the collective states of the universe.


If we could travel into the inner of a particle, the first thing encountered would be Space of the Compounded Nasma. This Space is the world of senses. Within the area Of this Space the conscious of the individual remains immersed in the senses pertaining to the Appearance (Royat) as though the Appearance itself is a collection of the senses within the Spatiality of the Appearance there is another Space, called the Vision (Roya). It is Space of the uncompounded or simple nasma. Space of the compounded Nasma is the outer garment of the individual’s personality whereas, Space of the Simple Nasma is the inner body of the individual’s personality, that is, the Vision is such a Space which could be termed as the internal body of the individual. Within Space of the Vision, there exists another Space. This Space is the body of the Variant Light. And, within this Space resides the Invariant Light. The Invariant Light is the Inevitable Being or the Elohistic Attributes or the Spacelessness (La Makan). Its vast expanses are encompassing the universe. But, the Supreme Being of Allah is still beyond it. As mentioned above, it is a Virtuous Quality of Allah, the Most High, and is Endogenous all the same.


Compounded Nasma, Simple Nasma, Variant Light and the Invariant Light all have different and separate sets of senses. The senses pertaining to the Appearance (Royat) remain Predominant in the Phenomenal World Over the other senses. When the individual lives in the State of Vision (Roya) i. e. he is dreaming his attention is diverted from the Appearance and focuses in the Vision, or to say, the senses of the Vision dominate over all the other senses. The senses of the Vision (Roya) since Eternity had been dominating over rest of the senses till the creation of the Phenomenal World and now these senses come into action only during the state of Sleep and after awakening these become subjugated. After death, in the Erebus or the Limbo (the Purgatory) these senses will once again become dominant over all the other senses. The senses of the Soul had been dominated in the Realm of Event, are dominated in the state of Appearance and will remain in subjugation in the Purgatory as well. But on the Day of Resurrection the senses of the Soul will become predominating over all the other senses and will remain enforced permanently. 


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.
