A beautiful verse from Abyat-e-Bahoo Kamil
Explanation: I am the falcon, flying in the Divine world and engrossed in Oneness (tawhid). As I am Sultan ul Faqr therefore I have the power of Divine command. With this power I can change the destiny as well. Great scholars like Plato and Aristotle have no worth in front of me. I have elevated to level of al-Insan al-Kamil, the Universal Divine Man.
