Ism e Mohammad
Sultan Bahoo Teachings
Sultan Bahoo also revealed the way of Tasawur of Ism e Mohammad (Contemplation of The Personal Name of Prophet Mohammad) to find spiritual presence in The Holy Mohammad Assembly. This way was also hidden from the Lovers of The Holy Prophet before Sultan Bahoo revealed it as a result of the revelations of rare facts from Allah behind the curtain of his sacred body.
Sultan Bahoo says:
Levels of Ism e Mohammad
There are four levels of contemplation of Ism e Mohammad (Sacred Name of Mohammad) which grant four kinds of Divine Favor. The first level is that whosoever contemplates Sacred name of Mohammad in heart, his soul becomes alive and his innerself is dead. This contemplation has the authority to take to the level of annihilation in Sacred name of Mohammad which is the level of The Perfect Fakir. Second level is that when the Sacred name of Mohammad enters the heart, it takes the Seeker in The Holy Assembly of Prophet Mohammad. He reaches in the Assembly, sees and recognizes it and finds presence there. Third level is that whosoever acquires permanent Tasawur of Sacred name of Mohammad, every part and whole of the universe is exposed upon his sight and his being is forgiven according to the verse:
Meaning: So that Allah may forgive all your earlier and later sins. (Al-Fatah-2)
Such a possessor of contemplation (of Ism e Mohammad) should be a true Man, not a human being having qualities of animals. Fourth level is that by the Tasawur of Sacred name of Mohammad The Divine Presence and its knowledge are gained. (Kashf-ul-Asrar)
Esoteric and Exoteric Knowledge
By their (Ism-e-Allah Zaat and Ism e Mohammad) contemplation, two basic knowledge are exposed initially upon the contemplator; the exoteric knowledge of devotions and matters of life and the esoteric knowledge of gnosis of Divine Oneness and observation of light of the Divine Essence. (Qurb-e-Deedar)
Ism-e-Allah converts into Ism e Mohammad
Ism-e-Allah (Name of Allah) converts into Sacred name of Mohammad as Allah says in a Qudsi Hadith (O’ Mohammad! You are Me and I am you). This shows that these two names are of the same Divine Self. (Ain-ul-Faqr)
Effects of Ism e Mohammad
The person who does contemplation of Sacred name of Mohammad speaks every word absorbed in the Noor of Mohammad. Contemplation of Sacred name of Mohammad affects the Seeker of Allah in such a ways that he is blessed with enlightened insight, grand magnificence, company of The Holy Prophet, a pure sanctified heart and The Straight Path. He (reaches the stage of Fana-Fi-Rasool i.e. annihilation in the Prophet in such a way that he) becomes one with the body and soul of The Holy Prophet. He listens with his ears, sees with his eyes, speaks with his tongue, and walks with his steps. He wears the coverlet of Sharia. Sacred name of Mohammad has four letters (according to Arabic Alphabets) which contain both the worlds. Tasawur of Ism e Mohammad reveals the secrets of both the worlds upon the Seeker. (Mohabbat-ul-Asrar)
Who is a perfect Murshid?
Perfect and accomplished Murshid is the one who only knows the way of Ism-e-Allah Zaat and Ism e Mohammad and nothing else, while the true seeker is the one who seeks only Allah the Exalted and nothing else.
