Thus, there were two major Orders in these trials: One was concerning to Propagation of the Religion (Tableegh) and the other was concerning to the Hijrat (Migration). The Order for the Propagation of the Religion was against the violent and mighty King of Babel (Babul or Shinar) and Nainwa who had claimed to be 'God' and had erected his sculpts and had forced people to worship and adore them. It was not easy task to refuse the (so called) Lordship of this cruel and bloodthirsty king and stopping his subjects against worshipping him and Inviting him and convincing him towards Accepting the God Almighty the One and Only. It was, however, equivalent to putting one's head on his palm and sacrificing his Nafs on this mission but Hazrat Ibrahim Alaihis-Salaam completed this trial with great patience and Steadfastness (and persistence). The second test was leaving his wife Hazrat Bibi Hajira Salamun Alaiha and his only son Hazrat Ismaeel Alaihis-Salaam alone and helpless just on the Tawakul of Allah Almighty in that barren and inhibited dry mountains of the valley of Mecca where there was no sign and presence of water nor was there any provision of eating. Hence, this thing was also like slaughtering and killing the Nafs with a knife before the Will and Resignation of Lord. In short, truly Hazrat Ibrahim Alaihis-Salaam was the embodiment of Tasleem and Raza and he was he who was the killer of his Nafs with the dagger of 'confiding his cause unto Allah for his Raza' and in recognition of this, he was the one who is reviver and sustainer of both the Ka'ba e Asghar of water and bricks (that is the physical and material one) and the Ka'ba e Azam (the greatest Ka'ba) of the Qalb!
The Rujuaat-e-Khalq, pomp and dignity and popularity bear the degree of a fatal poison in the initial stage of the Haal of the Saalik. However, when his Salook has been covered and he has reached his desired destination and has become honored with the Qurb and Wisaal and Mushahida of Allah Almighty, then when Allah Almighty makes him honored and the distinctive one amongst His creation like 'and exalted you fame' (94:4) and makes him famous and well-known in the eighteen thousand Alwi and Sifli Realms, he has no risk of loss thenceforth. Therefore, the Seeker should try his utmost to avoid popularity and self-show in the continuity of the Salook and Demand.
The Living-Hearted Arifeen see the Angels and spirits and get benefit of them by meeting with them as Allah Almighty grants them a Subtle Noori Invisible Bulk and unlocks their Inwardly Senses. Seeing these Invisible Subtle Creatures is not in scope of the Outwardly Senses nor can those with the materialistic and partly perception understand these things nor are they able to believe in them. Since the common sensual people are living with the Outwardly physical bulks and see the objects of the worlds through the Outwardly Senses, therefore, they have no news of the Invisible world because their hearts are sleeping uninformed in the Realm of the Invisible under the blankets of matter. On in other words, their likeness is as small child and fetus which has not yet taken birth in the Great Realm. Thus the carnal beings are sleeping in that spacious room whose floor is the earth and ceiling is sky whereas all the People-of-Allah are wakeful. Sleeping ones are ignoramus of themselves as well as of others but the Wakeful ones are seeing the spectacles of the Visible as well as the Invisible Worlds and are aware of and informed of the things near and around them.
The particular time of the visits of Angels and archangels is between midnight to the dawn. During this time, their arrival and Haziraat is accomplished easily and early. A special type of sweet and tender fragrance is felt at the time of their Haziraat. One feels taste and comfort in Worship, Obedience, Zikr, Fikr and Recitation. Sometimes dilution and tenderness overcomes. Body feels to be heavier and denser. Tajalli and Noor of the Angels of heaven is totally white silken. The Tajalliyaat and Ilhaam from them evident from upside on head or on right side accompanied with fragrance. However, the Tajalli of the Jinn is reddish color of fire. Their Tajalli and voice is received from the left side and it is accompanied with bad smell. The Flame and voice of the Devils and Evil Spirits is received from one's back side or in the left side and it is accompanied by stink. The Wardaat (invisible occurrences) and Haziraat of the Angels of earth and heavens, one becomes more attentive towards worship and obedience and taste develops in Zikr Fikr and Yaqeen and Eimaan become stronger.
