According to Sufi , Allah reason for the creation of this cosmos and humankind is the “manifestation” and “recognition” of Himself as it is stated in
Hadith Qudsi – “I was a hidden Treasure; I desired to be recognized so I created the creature”
“Hazrat Sarkar Meer Syed Qutubuddin Muhammad Al Madni Kadwi r.a Farmate Hain ki main ek muddat daraaz se Maqaam e Lahoot mein parwaaz kar raha hoon Maqamaat Jabroot wa Malkoot ki to parwah bhi nahi karta aur is zamane ka wali ( Jo is maqaam se koi hissa bhi nhi rakhta ) mere nazdeeq shikam maadar mein rahne waale bachche ke manind hai yaani woh is martabe mein hai ke Aql hayolani (ek zarra bhi Aql) bhi nhi rakhte hain.“
Allah hu akbar ye martaba aur maqaam hai Hazrat Sarkar Meer Syed Qutubuddin Muhammad Al Madni Kadwi r.a ka.
Malfoozaat Hazrat Ameer Syedana Qutubuddin Mohammad Al Madni (رحمتہ اللہ علیہ)
(1) Aalame Nasoot :Pahla darja hai jahan auliya ekaram ka guzar hota hai.Iss darje ko sabse nichele darje mein shumar kiye gaya hai.
(2)Aalame Malkoot :Woh Aalam jo Farishto’n ki qayam gaah hai. Chunanche Sultanul Hind Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz Ajmeri Chishti r.a ki Seerat par Likhi jane waali Kitab “Seerat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz” mein isi mauzo par aap ka ek qaul naql hai ki “Ajay pal ne Hazrat Khwaja se arz kiya ki aap bhi apna koi Kamaal dikhaye’n Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz ne muraghba farmaya aur usi haalat mein aapki rooh Aalam e Malkoot tak parwaaz kar gayi. Ajay pal jogi ki rooh bhi istadraaj se pahle Aasman tak pahuch gayi kyunki uski taab parwaaz yahi’n tak thi iske aage jaane ka raasta na mila Phir usne Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz se ilteja Kiya ki mujhe bhi apne hum raah le chale’n chunanche aapne usko apne sath le liya aur Arsh e Azeem ke neeche pahuche’n. Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz ki muqaddas sohbat ki barqat se Ajay pal jogi ki rooh par pada huwa hijab uth gaya aur Farishte Sarkar Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz r.a ki rooh ki jo tazeem aur takreem kar rahe the’n uska manzar bhi Ajay pal jogi ne apne Aankho’n se dekh liya
Isi Seerat ki Kitab mein aap ke wisal ka zikr karte hue Hazrat Khwaja Qutubuddin Bakhtiyar Kaki r.a farmate hain ki “ek shab mye musalle par leta huwa tha ki neend aagai maine Sarkar Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz r.a ko Arsh par dekha maine sir aapke qadmo’n par rakh diya aur aapka haal dariyaft kiya to aapne irshad farmaya ki Allah Ta’ala ne mujhe baksh diya aur apne saaye rehmat mein jagah ata farmai aur Farishto’n ke darmiyan meri qayamgaah muqarrar farmai hai main yahi’n rahta hoo’n. lehaza is qaul se ye zahir hota hai ki aapki qayamgaah Aalame Malkoot hai.
(3) Aalame Jabroot : (Aalame Barzakh ka buland baala Maqam) Iske mutalliq Hazrat Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz r.a farmate hai’n ke salikane ghair majzoob bajuz suhbat mursheed kaamil marfat Illahi hasil nahi kar sakte na baghair islah batin inki aalame jabroot tak rasai hoti hai.woh aalame nasoot wa malkoot mein bhatakte rahte hai’n.Yeh log shahwat pasand aur shohrat pasand hote hai’n.is qaul se sabit hai ke aalame jabroot mein khasam khaas ki he rasai hai.
(4) Aalame Lahoot ya Lahoot e lamaka’n ya Maqam e hoo : yeh aalame barzakh ka sabse buland aur bala maqam hai. Maloom ho ke maqam e Lahoot ke bayan mein baaz Muhaqqeqeen sufiya (Sufiya ki woh jamaat jo Haqiqat se ashna karate hain) ne is tarha farmaya hai ke jab wo huma e la yazaal ashiyana e lamaka’n mein is tarah sar dar muraqbah tha ke use khud apni khabar na thi is maqaam ko Aarifo ne Mahoot ka naam diya. Aur jab wajood ki lazzaat par aaya to is maqaam ko Nasoot ka naam diya. Aur jab apni hamdo sana par aaya to is maqaam ko Malkoot ka naam diya.Aur jab usne sar uthaya aur nazar khud par padi to woh apne wajood ke ejza ka yak ba yak mushahidah karne laga to is maqaam ko Jabroot ka naam diya. Aur jab use khud se maloom hua ki main khud ba khud aaya hoon to is maqaam ko Lahoot ka naam diya. To is se maloom hota hai ki maqaam e Lahoot aisa maqaam e aali hai ki aksar aur khaas ke alawa kisi ka guzar nhi. Chunanche is sher mein
Alam-i-HaHoot (Realm of He-ness): The level of HaHoot refers to HaHooiyat (The Unknowable and Incomparable world). It is an Arabic term which pertains to the Divine’s Essence prior to manifestation. The spiritual stage related to it is called Ahdiyat(Alonehood). This is the Realm of pre-existence and a level of non creation. According to sufis, this state of Ahdiyat is incapable of being conceived, incapable of interpretation and is beyond all logical bounds. At this stage Allah is all alone and hidden in his own veil and cannot be exemplified with anything. Nothing exists here, neither the universe nor the creation. Here the Zaat (Divine essence) and neither His attributes are revealed or manifested
Alam-i-Yahoot (Realm of First Manifestation): The spiritual stage pertaining to YaHoot is referred to as Wahdat (Oneness). YaHoot is the first level of manifestation of “Hoo”. When the Divine Essence desired to manifest, He manifested Himself in the form of Noor-e-Mohammad (Light of Muhammadصلى الله عليه وسلم ). Since YaHoot is a world of Oneness, so it clarifies that Noor of Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is a manifestation of God’s Essence and is not a separate entity. This is the first step towards Divine descent. The creation has not started yet. Here Hoo is called Allah which in Arabic means “the worshippable one”, because there is a being in the form of Noor of Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم who worships Allah. And the level is called yaHoot because there is an entity who would address Hoo as YaHoo (O’Hoo).
Alam-i-LaHoot (Realm of Absolute Unity): The world of LaHoot is related to the level of Wahdiyat (Unity). Here the soul of Mohammadصلى الله عليه وسلم is manifested from the Noor of Mohammadصلى الله عليه وسلم. Since this is a world of Unity so at this level Noor of Allah and Noor of Mohammadصلى الله عليه وسلم are in the same form. Therefore, the soul of Mohammadصلى الله عليه وسلم is in fact the soul of Allah called Rooh-e-Qudsi (The Divine Soul). At this level the whole universe and its creation is hidden in Noor-e-Mohammadصلى الله عليه وسلم and is anxious to manifest itself.
Alam-i-Jabrut (Realm of Power):Jabrut is an Arabic term which means ‘bridge’ or anything that connects two things. It is called Jabrut because it connects the above three levels of non-creation and the coming levels of creation. The level of Jabrut is related to the level of creation of souls of human beings. Here Allah created the souls of human beings from Rooh-e-Qudsi. The soul of human beings created from Rooh-e-Qudsi is called Rooh-e-Sultani(the Kingly soul). The Divine attributes like knowledge, wisdom etc. which were present in totality in Rooh-e-Qudsi at the above non-creation levels got divided into human beings. Rooh-e-Sultani has attributes of angels because angels were created at the same level. Here Rooh-e-Qudsi got concealed in the Rooh-e-Sultani.
Alam-e-Malakut (Realm of Intelligence): This level refers to the world of symbolic forms. At this level the souls took a recognizable but immaterial and intangible form for the first time. Here Rooh-e-sultani got concealed in the cover of Rooh-Noorani(the soul of celestial light). The souls of animals, plants and all non-living things were also created at this level.Due to the creation of souls of animals at this level the human soul adopted beastal qualities like lust,greed, covet etc.
Alam-i-Nasut (Realm of Physical bodies): The level of Nasut refers to the physical world of material bodies. The stage where foundations of the tangible world of matter are laid. Here Rooh-e-Noorani got concealed in the cover of Rooh-e-Hewani (the soul directly related to the physical body) which was the breathed into the physical bodies of flesh and bones and non-living things. The process of human creation got completed here and Allah manifested Himself completely in Humans by concealing in the covers of Rooh-e-Qudsi, Rooh-e-Sultani, Rooh-e-Noorani and Rooh-e-Hewani.
