Sultan Bahoo elaborately explained the secrets of the contemplation (tasawur) of Ism e Allah Zaat or Ism e Azam in his books. He has also named contemplation of Ism e Allah Zaat as the knowledge of alchemy and contemplation of Divine guidance at some places in the said books. Contemplation of Ism e Allah Zaat is the centre and crux of all esoteric knowledge. Through it one gains the two highest stations of the Divine vision and presence in the Mohammadan Assembly. These are not possible from any other invocation (dhikr / zikr) and meditation. Esoterically there are no exalted station than them.
Allah has two kinds of names, personal and attributive
Name is the medium used to call and recognize somebody or something. There are two kinds of names; personal and attributive. If somebody’s ‘personal name’ is Naveed and he is an expert in medical knowledge, people call him ‘Doctor Naveed’. Moreover if he has learnt Quran by heart then he is ‘Hafiz Naveed’. If he has performed hajj then ‘Haji Naveed’. Hence, the more attributes he will possess, the more attributive names will become a part of his personal name. So ‘Naveed’ is his personal name whereas doctor, hafiz or haji are all his attributive names because they were attached to his original name when he acquired those attributes. This shows that the invocation of an attributive name only includes the remembrance of one particular attribute while the invocation of the personal name includes each of the attributive names as well.Similarly Ism e Allah Zaat, ( اَللّٰہُ ) is His personal name while Kareem, Raheem, Ghafoor, Ghafaar and other such Divine names are attributive names. They all are included in the personal name Allah ( اَللّٰہُ ). When a person invokes Allah ( اَللّٰہُ ) he in fact remembers Allah with all His attributes.
The meaning of names ‘Allah’ does not change
Like Allah Himself, His name is also unprecedented, peerless and unique because of its marvels, astonishing Essence and meaningfulness. Moreover the distinguished quality of this name is that if one gradually separates its letters, even then its meanings are not changed and in any case it remains Ism e Allah Zaat and is to address Allah only.
How to do Zikr of Allah?
Ism e Allah Zaat is zikr e qalbi (silent zikr) and one of the secrets of Allah. It is in fact remembering Allah by breaths. Sultan Bahoo talk about the benefits of zikr e qalbi (Ism e Allah Zaat, Ism e Azam) in one of this books in the following words:
The invocation which actually opens the doors of spiritual world is the invocation with breaths (pas infas) in which invocation of Ism e Allah Zaat is performed through inhale and exhale of breath. It is the king of invocations (Sultan-ul-Azkar).
Where can you get Ism e Allah Zaat?
Most of books of Sultan Bahoo are Ism e Azam books meaning they elaborate the significance of Ism e Allah Zaat and also guide the seekers of Allah where to attain it. It is clearly mentioned in Sultan Bahoo books to search for a perfect Murshid who not only has complete knowledge of Ism e Allah Zaat but is also annihilated in it. Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman is the 31st perfect Shaikh of the Sarwari Qadri order. He is the man of Divine Essence and grants Ism e Allah Zaat on the first day of the oath of allegiance of the seeker. Therefore, Tehreek Dawat e Faqr invite all seekers of Allah to take oath of allegiance and attain Ism e Allah Zaat from him. However, to know your Ism e Azam a seeker needs to seek guidance and spiritual attention of the perfect spiritual guide. Sultan ul Ashiqeen guides his disciples both inwardly and outwardly through his words of wisdom. The seekers of Allah assemble in his spiritual gatherings where he quenches their desire of gnosis (Marifa) of Allah.
