The reality is that the Holy Quran is the Inwardly Subtle Food of the heart and spirit. Either the hearts and spirits of these people are dead and solid or are ill and patients. And this is an established fact that no matter how much the food is fine and tasty, it feels bitter and tasteless to a person who is ill. Like a dung beetle (Gabrila), a dead-hearted sensual person is the devotee and seeker of the life of the world. A sensual person turns away from the reservoir of Musk and Ambergris and runs after the garbage of novels as he gets the carnal and beastly food and power in the impurity and filth. Reversely, the fragrance and scent of Musk and Ambergris is a message of death for him. The Holy Quran is an unfathomable ocean of the Uncreated Noor of Allah Almighty and the Dawat through the Holy Quran is the superior most and the best one amongst all the Dawaat. Hence, it has come in a Hadis that 'the Recitation of the Holy Quran is the superior most worship amongst all the worships'.
Now we describe different Maratib and Levels of the Recitation of the Holy Quran. Although these Truths, which we are describing are beyond the scope of understanding of the dead-hearted sensual people, but, since these are totally right, therefore, we explain these that may be some chosen person of Allah Almighty faces these Truths and become happy and pleased finding his condition and situation agreeable to these. Hazrat Sultan ul Arifeen (Hazrat Sultan Bahu) May his secret be sanctified, while describing the difference between the different Subtleties in his books says that if a Saalik says Yaa Allah once with his tongue of the Nafs, which is the Nemul-Badal of the entire Holy Quran, then its Sawaab and Degree is seventy thousand higher than finishing the reading of the whole Holy Quran by the physical tongue which is a piece of flesh. And if the Subtlety of the Qalb says Yaa Allah once, then its Sawaab is equivalent to seventy thousand times of the Sawaab of complete reading of the whole Quran by the tongue of the Nafs. And in the same way, one can ascertain for the Subtleties of the Spirit and the Sirr.
We now we throw light upon the greatness, glory and the unique ancient Noor and its welfare and Auspiciousness (and blessing) and Sawaab of the Holy Quran that if the Holy Quran is read through the Noori tongue as it deserves to be read and if its Noor, Beneficence and Auspiciousness (and blessing) reaches the People-of-Graves (Ahl e Qaboor), then what condition becomes of the People-of-Graves with its Noor and how much welfare and blessing is conducted to them.
A dear sister of this Faqeer was Bibi Rabia. She was very pious, devout, chaste and virtuous girl. She has died and had great love with this me. She became the victim of the disease 'dropsy (or edema' in her youth. In this disease, her abdomen, hands, feet and all body had swollen and her complexion had become pale. At the time of her last breaths, this Faqeer was present with her and read Surah Yaseen near her and advised her to read the Kalimah-e-Tayyeb and the Kalimah e Shahadat. Her end came in such state of weakness and she expired. I had much concern about the conditions of the Barzukh she might be facing in her grave. Inwardly, I saw this thing on the third night after her departure from world that I was going to our family graveyard which was near our house and when I reach that place where my late sister was buried, I find that place that it was a broken house and the sister was lying on a broken bed suffering from same bad conditions of her ailment in a very lamenting condition with pale color and a swollen body and is crying for me to reach her as she was afraid. I approach her bed (cart) running and console her that 'O sister! Do not worry as your brother has reached'. I sat in the foot-side of her bed and recited the Ayat ul Kursi (2:55) and then started the Surah Al Muzzammil (73). Before conclusion of the Surah Al Muzzammil (73), I saw that that broken house became a grand palace and that ordinary bed became a beautiful and comfort bed and the face of my sister shone like full moon and her ordinary dress turned to be of colorful and costly dress of silk and brocade. In the same moment, some Roohani, wearing Arabic Dress, came flying in air and went back after shaking hand with me. After this incident, some more Inwardly incidents and conditions were experienced.
