“And if all the trees in the earth were pens, and the sea, with seven more seas to help it, (were ink), the words of Allah could not be exhausted. Allah is Mighty, Wise”. {surat ul luqman: 27}

Ma’arifat means the knowledge of Allah Subhana Wa Tallah and the relationship between man or Insaan and Allah. Sufis and saints of Allah have disclosed sacred knowledge and shared their experiences for the sake of strengthening the relationship between Man and Allah.

According to Saints of Allah, many veils or Hijaab need to be lifted one by one. After the lifting of these veils the man finds him standing in front of the truth.

There is immense need to develop the understanding between the real and illusion. Man is usually happy within his illusions and hardly comes out in the light of truth or reality. It is not possible to attain this understanding by books or knowledge of religion but this awareness or awakening is only dependent on the Will of Allah Subhana Wa Tallah.

Sufis and Saints of Allah are those men and women who attained the true divine Knowledge about Allah and they strived upon developing strong connection with Allah. If a person thinks he or she can get this knowledge with the help of his wisdom and understanding than they are not fully attuned with their inner or heart. The heart is the true source of guidance and only the heart, brimming with the Noor or Light of Allah.

Saints of Allah that include the much honorable and respectful Shaikh Ali Hujwari and Sultan Bahu refute the claims made by certain critics. Besides them many other exalted and glorious saints or Wali Allah, concur that Maarifat is unattainable with Knowledge ilm and wisdom aql alone.

If this had been the case than every knowledgeable person and every wise man would have been a sufi. If Maarifat was attainable with visible worships (namaz and roza) than every religious person should have been a sufi.

Not every aalim or scholar can reach the exalted state of Wali Allah and be called an Aaarif. In fact, the true and divine knowledge of Allah can only be transferred to someone who is blessed by the will of Allah Subhana wa Tallah. Only Allah alone has the power to open the locked doors of heart. Only Allah alone can seal the doors of heart.

Heart of a man is full of worldly desires. In the presence of these desires, it is not possible to attain the true knowledge. Allah Subhana wa Tallah reveals the divine knowledge to the heart that has purified itself of illusions, self created and those cultivated due to the experiences in life.

Every man or woman has the built-in ability to differentiate between the right and wrong, light and darkness and good and bad.
