Thus, that Dervish undertook Muraqiba at night and discovered a medicine form an Angel who suggested a plant to crush and pour its juice in eye. When this was done, the eye of Hazrat Mian Meer Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe became well. Seeing this, another Dervish asked 'O Hazrat! You are the Mentor and Murshid of that Dervish. Could you yourself not ask the cure of this disease from Angels'. Hazrat Mian Meer Rahmatu-Allahe Ta-aala Alaihe said 'My Destination is above the Realm of Malakoot. It would be abuse and insult for me that I should descend from my higher Destination and request lowly Angels for help and facilitation. This Seeker of mine has power of Teer-Sair in the Realm of Malakoot these days and seeking their benefit and profit is his job as charged by his Mansib'.
In short, meeting with, getting profit and benefits through Angels is not any hard task. Seeing and perceiving this Invisible Creature is the job of the Inwardly Senses and Spiritual Bulk. The scope of material wisdom and physical senses is just limited to the boundaries of matter and Four-Elements. The gate of the Realm of the Unseen is shut for these speaking cattle. Those people, who have vast courage and capacity high, they cover the Station of the Nasoot of the Nafs sooner and leave the inferior and Sifli Station of the Haziraat and Taskheer of Jinnaat . Their Subtlety of Qalb turns Living through the Zikr of Allah and the Visualization of the Name Allah which starts reading Dawat with the tongue of Qalb. Since this Subtlety is situated at the Realm of Malakoot inside man, therefore, when Dawat is recited through the tongue of Qalb and that Noor which is generated therewith, it becomes the food of the Subtlety of the Qalb of the Saalik. In addition, when this Inwardly bounty and Spiritual Food is produced excess than his own needs, then, since this Noor of Qalb , besides the Subtlety of Qalb , is also the food of the Invisible Creatures like angles and archangels like it, therefore, at the occasion of the Dawat through Qalb of the Saalik, the Angels come to it in order to collect this unique food and they in return become his helpers and facilitators as beneficiaries of his almonry.
Such kind of Living-Hearted Arif resembles with the Angels and becomes endowed with praiseworthy (Hameeda) angelic traits and knitted with their blessed Conduct (and ethics). Such Saalik receives complete power and food through Allah's Zikr , Fikr , Recitation, Worship, Obedience and Good Deeds.
He does Teer-Sair of the Realm of Malakoot and enjoys the spectacles there. Eating or no eating and sleeping or wakefulness become same things for the Seeker at this Station. Kashf and Karamaat are caused through him. If he discloses his Kashf and Karamaat, he becomes famous, the Master of the Rujuaat-e-Khalq and a well-known and celebrated person in general people. This Station is also of Rijat and slippage (Laghzish). Saalik should not feel cocksure at this Station but instead he should advance one step ahead (more careful).
In the wilderness of my passion (and madness), even Jibraaeel looks a weak prey,
If you have the courage (and mettle) like a Mard (real man) , approach unto God.
[Allama Iqbal Lahori]
Some Saalikeen claim to be Shaikh and open an outlet and feel too confident and accomplished. Because of the undue flattery, courteous services and too much esteem and respect of people, their Nafs turns fat and arrogant and gets caught up into the whirlpool the Egotism and self-conceit and gets captivated in the Kufr of the Tareeqat!
O Seeker! remember! Egotism is a grave Kufr. Egotist and God cannot stay together in same place. Human heart is like Khana-e-Kaba and the House of Allah. It should be kept free of Self-conceit and all the idols of the Outsiders of the Nafs and Desire!
Heart is greatest Ka'ba, throw all idols out of it [that is, do not make it an abode of carnal desires],
And heart is a Sacred Chamber; do not make it an idol-temple.
The Qibla of Qalb of the Arif Saalik is the special harem and real Ka'ba of Allah Almighty and the Sauda Sweda is the similitude of the Hajr e Aswad (Black Stone of Ka'ba). The former Ka'ba of Heart is the original and real because it is the visit place of the Glorious Sustainer whereas the Ka'ba made of bricks and water is its copy and virtual because it has been erected by the hands of the bondman Khaleel (Hazrat Ibrahim Alaihis-Salaam). About the Hajr e Aswad of Ka'ba, the Holy Prophet of Allah Hazrat Muhammad Sal Allahu Alaihe Wa Aa-lehee Wa-sallam has said that it was a stone of Heaven which was brought down from Heaven and fixed on the wall of Ka'ba. Initially, it was a bright and white stone but with the kisses of the visitors of Ka'ba and the Pilgrims of Hajj it then turned black as the sins of the kissers had been absorbed and soaked in it.
