What is Muraqba/Meditation?

Meditation

Muraqba is where we perceive our own selves. The past and future also become present before us, and with the help of these insightful rays, a happy and prosperous life prevails upon us completely.” Khawaja Shamsud Din Azeemi

Muraqba differs from ordinary meditation, as practiced in some parts of the world, where the latter is a process in which the human mind concentrates on a spot materialistically, encompassing waves of light onto a central point, in order to induce its effect. For example, scientifically, a prism is used to refract light rays (consisting of 7 colors) resulting in producing extremely powerful rays, which can burn objects. Meditation is then a limited skill, which helps one to understand the material sphere.

Muraqba, as transcendental meditation, is a spiritual act, in which the focus of the act for mental concentration is the Almighty Creator (Allah/God), who is the most knowledgeable. We concentrate our thoughts to establish contact with Allah, so that we can be aware of all the knowledge present within the Universe. Belief is vital to all spiritual and universal knowledge, since every intention and every act is illuminated by the lights of belief.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him (PBUH), spent a large proportion of the early part of his life in the cave of Hira, upon a mountain. Here, he used to practice transcendental meditation (Muraqba) and his training by God was conducted through the angel Jib rail (Gabriel). It takes nearly four hours to reach the top of the mountain, to enter Hira. The Holy Quran is the book, which contains the laws of nature and prophet hood was declared at the age of 40.

Can we do Muraqba/Meditation?

Yes, we can. We need to look at the spiritual lives of the Prophets of Allah, who used to perform meditation regularly, for establishing and maintaining links with the Almighty. And, to know God, we need to concentrate on our thoughts. Thoughts reach us by means of light and we refer to them as thoughts, ideas, imaginations etc. What should be noted here is that the patterns of thinking in all creatures have one point in common. It is this common point or location which informs us of the presence of other creatures.

For Muslims, this common point is Allah. Prophets, peace and blessings of Allah be upon them all, are our teachers and leaders. We have to follow their teachings and practices to be successful. Hence, the practice of Muraqba is simply an act of following our Prophets’ (PBUH) teaching. We learn from teachers at schools and colleges in order to gain success in obtaining worldly knowledge, and important concepts and skills. Similarly, we are obliged to follow our Holy Prophet (PBUH) and practice his example, as he himself did for many years in the mountain cave. Even in the Holy Quran, the importance of Muraqba has been mentioned, as in the following verse:

“And remember the name of your Lord. Cut your attachments and devote yourselves entirely to him” (chapter LXXIII, Section 13-a1-Muzammil).

Every word and sentence of the Holy Quran is a law of nature for every human being, both Muslims and non-Muslims alike. These laws operate for the whole universe. There are many planets composed of different elements, but the fundamentals of law as described in the Holy Quran apply to all of them. However, its application depends on the nature and environment of the particular location in the universe, being distinguished by different compositions. This message has been mentioned in the Holy Quran several times. “There is no change in following God’s commandments”

Healing

Spiritual concept of Healing Benifits of Meditation

When all diseases and ailments are counted their total exceeds hundreds. The nature and causes of these ailments vary. According to the “spiritual concept of healing” all diseases and ailments consist of two sides. One is physical and the other is either mental or spiritual. Extremities and other physical or chemical changes in the body cause sickness. Based on the spiritual concept of healing, all diseases have forms and figure and spiritual existence. These two sides do coexist. Because of the rise of psychological and physical ailments in our time, it is no longer difficult to grasp this idea. According to this spiritual idea, disease should be attacked not only on its physical side but also on its spiritual or mental side. When it is mentally negated, healing happens quickly. Not only healing is achieved but often complicated and incurable diseases are cured as well.

 

Since the spiritual side of diseases is not the subject matter of this book, we are only going to present a practical program through which healing power can be stored as much as possible in any individual. The more the storage, the more concentrated will be power of faith of the patient, resulting in faster healing. Following is the program itself:

Method of Healing:

 

Go to bed early at night and get up early in the morning at lease half hour before Fajar Prayer (before sun rise).

 

After wudu (Ablution), practice breathing exercise-1. Let your mind be free of any thought and do Dhikr (invocation) of the Divine Name – “Ya Hafeez’u” (the protector) until the start of the Fajar Prayer time.

 

After Fajar Prayer, do muraqba (meditation) imagining you are sitting inside the Divine Throne (Arsh e Elahii) and the lights of the Divine Name (Ya Shaafi – the Healer) are falling on you. Keep this muraqba (meditation) for at least ten to fifteen minutes.

 

Within a few months of doing this muraqba (Meditation) the patient is able to recover from the ailment and eventually becomes healthy.

AURA

AURA (NASMA)

His Divine Grace Qalander Baba Auliya has named the primary form of gases made from the light waves as nasma (aura), that is, the nasma is the name those basic waves and rays that initiate an existent. The waves of these lights in their flowing state can be taken as lines drawn upon the canvas of the universe. These lines, unlike the lines we are familiar with, are scattered in such a way that neither there is any distance between them nor these are infused into one another.

A movie film displayed in a cinema house can be taken as an example for understanding this thing. The light waves flow from an opening towards a screen for their display in the form of different forms and shapes. The lights rays emitting from the projector do not have any distance between them nor they are infused into one another and every line is carrying one or the other feature of a picture. Just as the lights after discharging from the projector turn into pictures after striking against the screen, similarly the nasma lines after passing through the space take the form of material bodies. These nasma lines are the basic component of the material bodies but unlike the rays emitted from the projector the physical eyes cannot sight these lines, these can only be witnessed by the inner or the spiritual sight. These cannot be seen even using the material gadgets although their effects have been notices by means of laboratory equipments. Reflection of the nasma has been seen and is named as aura but seeing the nasma using material equipments is still to be made possible.

Nasma are the waves responsible for the formation of the physical features of the creatures. These are of two types, simple and compound. The waves of simple and compound nasma are permeating the space and both contain forms and features. These not only transform into forms and features but also reflect these features for others.

Senses are produced from the effects of the waves of nasma. When these waves descend in the human mind, very mild pressure is produced, which remains imperceptible for the senses. This mild pressure, known as fantasy, can be related to with any activity of past, future or the present life. When this pressure increases, senses feel a vibration, which forms an out line or a sketch of a picture upon the screen of mind. This state, according to the Sufis, is known as thought.

When these waves sink deeper in their descent, the outline becomes more vivid. This is the state of imagination. Then the imagination gives rise to the feeling and when the feelings gain depth, the latent colors in the waves of nasma become evident, or to say, feelings become colorful. At this stage, the fantasy-cum-thought-cum-imagination-cum feeling takes the form of a manifestation displaying all the features in detail.

In terms of the worldly sciences we can define nasam as the lines drawn to make a drawing. If a drawing is made in such a way that only the vertical lines are used to depict a picture or a design then this is the state of simple nasma. In another case, a graph paper having vertical and horizontal lines is used for drawing pictures. The small squares of the graph paper are used as a unit of measurement for drawing the outlines and features in a sketch. Similarly the waves of compound nasam provide a base for the material bodies. Species and their specific features are formed from these very waves or lines of nasma.

According to the laws of the Preserved Scripturum, the colors transform into manifestation after filling the perception with colors, which happens only when the depth is produced in the feelings and until then these waves cannot be given the name of a color and for this reason the physical eyes cannot see them. In fact the colorless waves or the lines of nasma are the six main movements of the universe and the individuals of the universe. These waves, lines or the colorless rays multiply and divide according to their concentration at any one point. The gravity is result of the descent and dispersal of these very waves and the rotations and revolution of the very waves produce periods of time.

The concentration of these waves, on one hand, introduces us with spatiality and, on the other, with time, which is another name of the dispersal of these waves upon the mind. The descent, dispersal, rotation or circulation and their multiplication and division are known as absorption of nasma that is, the nasma takes the form and figure of a feasible object according to its requirements and physical demands. Feasible, in terms of Sufism is such a thing, which in its last stage or after its completion, can be sighted by the physical eyes. As long as an object does not start existing in the form of solid materiality, it is known as Reality (tahaqaq) or Illustrative Form (tamasl).

The spiritual sight witnesses the initial stages and the physical eyes see the creation in its final stages. Nasma, in fact, is that hidden light which can be seen with the help of the lights of noor.
