In general, there is such Association or Society in the Islamic World which in real terms deserves to be known as 'Sufi' or 'Spiritual'; which gains observations and undertakes experiments in both the theoretical and practical aspects of the Ilm of Spirituality. However, there are many persons who are just wearing a formal uniform in attire of a traditional Sufi who have no link with the Tasawvuf and Spirituality. Just on the basis of their claim of being ' the son of the Sultan', they have erected the Shrines of their fathers and grandfathers, setting a trap posing to be their spiritual descendants, trap plebs like fowls and keep them trapped in their false promises and rob their wealth, soul and Eimaan. Contrary to this, the Europeans, who are vigilant and disciplined in every way, there are regular institutions, special societies and disciplined associations of every science and skill and the entire elite and higher ups of nation are endeavoring for the progress and expansion of every useful skill and constructive Ilm and they give help to the practitioners and experts of these arts and sciences. Even government patrons and encourages such special and exceptional persons in every way and this is the special thing that has elevated the West to the peaks of horizons and the climax and in this same sympathy, discipline and unity lies the secret of their progress and success.
Regrets that if some exceptional person takes birth in our nation, every individual of the nation feels jealous about him and all the people unite for his opposition and enmity against him and erect barriers in his way and the mission. Muslims should choose the Ilm of Spirituality (and spiritualism) as their heritage for practice. They should establish regular societies and clubs and should provide every kind of literature for this purpose so much so that if they have to travel abroad for the sake of acquiring this Ilm, they should send their persons with ability and prowess there and publish this Ilm when it has been practically acquired from abroad.
(Saying of the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam)
Acquire knowledge even if you have to travel to distant lands like China.
Hikmat is the lost possession of the Momin. Hence, you should find and get it even if you find it from a Kaafir.
If the Muslims will advance their steps towards this, they will take such wonderful services in a very short time through the Haziraat of the Jinn, Satan and Sifli Spirits and even from sacred spirits of the Pure Noori Creatures like the Momin, Jinn, Angels and Aulia-Allah Rahmatu-Allah Ta'ala Alaihim and the Holy Prophets Alaihimus-Salaam by virtue of which, they will regain their lost dignity.
When Hazrat Suleiman Alaihis-Salaam intended for bringing the Queen of Saba, that is, the Princess Bilqees under his rule, what was his approach whereby he proved his spiritual supremacy to her and made her his disciple, believer and Muslim after making her convicted about his Inwardly Lordship and the Invisible Army he had! This happened in the way that Hazrat Suleiman Alaihis-Salaam , first, sent his decree to her through the means of one of his Invisible Muakal called Hud Hud in such a state when she was sleeping (in her room the palace) in the capital city Saba and the room was being protected so strictly that even a bird had no opportunity to fly there. Briefly, this was the matter of the letter:
Lo! it is from Solomon, and lo! it is: In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful; exalt not yourselves against me, but come unto me as those who surrender (27:30-31)
Soon after receiving this strange letter of Hazrat Suleiman Alaihis-Salaam, the Queen Bilqees called for her Ministers and Emirs and communicated to them that she had received from the Prophet Suleiman a 'Kitaab e Kareem', that is, a letter of high dignity and he had invited them to accept Islam as the Doctrine of Faith and what opinion they had. The Inwardly Power and Spiritual Greatness was clear due to that letter and the strange way in which it was delivered because it was not an ordinary letter which could be ignored. Therefore, through examination and long discussions were made in royal court regarding this matter and different opinions were given. In those days, it was a very vast and great kingdom which the Queen Bilqees had in the land of Yemen. It's people used to worship sun as deity.
