However, when the trustee (or custodian) and the administrators of their tombs start arranging the annual assemblies and gatherings (Mela) of the common people on their graves in order to increase Rujuaat-e-Khalq and for collecting the offerings and contributions from them with the activities which are contrary to the Code of Shariyat like the theaters of prostitutes for dancing and singing, shops of Hookah, cannabis resin (charas) and hemp (bhang) etc., letting the men and women do adultery, playing gambling, Kabbaddi (a sport) and other sports which are contrary to the spirit of Islam and arranging musical nights, dating of young men with women behind the excuse of pilgrimage etcetera; at that time the Aulia-Allah withdraw their Tasarruf back from their tombs and stop visiting the place of dead illicit activities. As a result thereof, the Inwardly Beneficence and Spiritual Taleem and Inwardly Talqeen ceases for that place. Instead the Roohani, in order to keep their graves free of the sinfulness of the people and in order to secure against their filth and impurity of their vices, they tend to give grief and loss to the visitors and threaten them and do not let them live and spend a night on their graves. Therefore, the strength of visitors on such tombs diminishes gradually. Thus, today there are those tombs present on the face of earth where once a large number of visitors used to come and the Inwardly Beneficence and Spiritual Bounty was in abundance. However, due to such unwise bad activities under the patronage of the administrators of these tombs, these tombs have become abandoned and are now in poor condition. Hence, the shrine of Hazrat Musa Alaihis-Salaam (Moses) depicts similar picture near two miles away of the Baytul Muqaddas because of the similar unfair assemblies and fairs of the Jews on this tomb. Situation has become so worst now that no one can spend a night there due to horror. On the other hand, if there are some shrines where people still come in large numbers even in presence of such despicable assemblies and the bad activities against the Code of Islam, then these are not the Khanqah but instead these are idol-temples and the haunts of sins and Bidat. Roohani forsake such graves and the Jinn Devils and the Evil Spirits occupy such sites and display the shops of sending the people astray.
For such graves the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has said that 'O my Lord! Forbid that my grave from becoming an idol-temple'. If the Roohani is himself not the Kaamil and the Living -Hearted Arif, no benefit is gained by erecting his tomb, laying mantles on his grave and gathering assemblies on his tomb. It cries rather:
We are careless if large assemblies are on our tombs,
As we will be all alone in our grave under the ground.
[Zafar Ali Khan]
Thus, it is free of any doubt that 'the Spirits remain alive after death, they come in this world and if they deem it fit, they make close connection with the people and meet them and get advantage of the living beings and give the advantage to them in turn'. Whence the Kaamil Aulia Rahmatu-Allah Ta'ala Alaihim, Arifeen and Waasileen have crossed the bridge halting in between the life and the death, such Kaamil people ingress and egress this world with quite convenience and provide benefit to the living people and get benefit from them because when the Spiritual Fowls have become free of the Cage of Elements, their Inwardly Power, Spiritual Perception and the Ability of Flying becomes very fast and they enjoy a wonderful Inwardly Force in the Realm of Command and can very easily solve the very difficult ventures and the trickiest tasks confronted by us in this Realm of Creations and the Physical World through using their Inwardly Guts and Tawajuh. We have, at many times, seen and observed such wonderful and marvelous doings of the Roohaneen with our own eyes and have tested this in complete consciousness and wakefulness. Ordinary people go on graves and read Fatihah and Darood etcetera or donate some gift, charity or alms there and return. If the Intention of the Pilgrims is right, tongue is clean and body is pure and they possess Halaal wealth, there is no doubt that the Sawaab of their recited Words and the Food offered there reaches the Roohani and the Roohani Inwardly does effort and tries to fulfill their desires and needs in return and if the Roohani wills, it meets the ordinary pilgrim in his dream with the Bulk of Nafs and gives him good tidings in his dream concerning his desire shown by him on the grave.
