Establishment of Allah on the Throne and His Being closer than the Jugular vein we have to delve into both these statements for common meanings. In fact, these are two ways of perceiving something. Practicing perception in the obscurity takes human imagination in remote areas of Boundlessness and this remoteness is termed as the High Throne. Exercising perception in the depth takes it closer to the human conscious. This nearness has been called, 'Closer than the jugular vein', by Allah, the Most High. Here it should be kept in mind that the remoteness of the Boundlessness and the nearness of the conscious are synonymous. Both these places, in fact, are one and the same. Only the approaches of perception are different. The perception, on one hand reaches the High Throne by travelling in the obscurity and on the other hand absorbs in the vicinity of the Jugular Vein after immersing in the depths. In both the ways purpose is to reach Allah the Most Exalted. The first perception is the Black Draught and the second one is the Manifestation. Abstraction, one of the remaining two perceptions is the other side of the Black Draught. Since there is a depth for every height and a height for every depth, therefore, Abstraction is the lower side of the Black Draught and the higher side of the Manifestation is the Evidence. Both these sides are pertinent to those final limits of the universe which are extended up to the ultra-cosmos. This has been explained in the following words.


"Allah is the Light of the Heights and the Depths, as if there is a Niche, in it a Lamp, the Lamp is enclosed in Glass. This Lamp of Divine Oil is luminant without any phenomenal light. And whose Light is independent of all directions, Light upon Light".


When the obscurity is searched the Attributes of Allah are found Light upon Light and the cognition of Allah is acquired through these very four perceptions which spurt from the Black Point that has already been discussed at length. One may ask, what the perception is after all. Perception is Time. The smallest possible fraction of a second and the longest period of Time conceivable by the human mind are both perceptions and the characteristics of the Black Point. The incidents of the atomic explosions of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are the observed examples of the smallest fraction and the longest period of Time.


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.
