Description: There are many books written that incorporate discussions about practices of the fundamentals of Islam and shariah. However, it is rare to find the ones which could actually provide the food to nurture our souls. This is the reason our souls are restless and sorrowful despite of practising Islam and shariah. It is a need of the era to uncover the universal reality and spiritual purposes of these principles which have been veiled in the modern world. This translation of the Urdu book “Haqeeqat-e-Hajj” written by my Murshid and the present Shaikh of Sarwari Qadri order Shabeeh-e-Ghaus-e-Azam Sultan-ul-Ashiqeen Khadim Sultanul-Faqr Hazrat Sakhi Sultan Mohammad Najib-ur-Rehman Madzillah-ul-Aqdus is a continuation of his tremendous efforts to enlighten the spiritual realities of Islam and Sufism. Hajj, in Islam, apparently is an occasional worship with certain obligatory rituals incumbent to perform once in a life time, but when seen through the pure form of shariah and spiritual prospect, it defines the whole life of a believer. In general, the identity and grandeur of a house is related to its owner, and it is pointless to visit a house without meeting its owner. Similarly, we can think about Hajj that when a pilgrim visits holy Kaaba, he should meet the Beloved Allah instead of seeing His house only. Allah created this universe for His recognition and created man with His Noor (the Divine light). This Noor or the Divine Essence is concealed in the heart of a human being like a seed and is covered in the layers of inner baser self. When a man struggles to remove the layers of inner baser self (through devotions and zikr of Allah), his heart gets purified, as a result the Divine Essence manifests in his heart. This is the purpose of his creation and the main objective of performing Hajj. Hazrat Bayazid Bastami, a great Sufi Saint narrates: “When I went to visit Kaaba and looked upon it the first time I saw a house, when I looked at it the second time I saw the house and its Owner, when I looked at it the third time, I only saw its Owner.” May Allah confer upon us all the opportunity to perform such Hajj which blesses us with His vision and presence in His Court. I am truly blessed to be chosen for the duty of translating this book by my Murshid. It was certainly a joyous pride and one of the wonderful unlimited blessings he has bestowed upon this humble slave. I deeply thank my fellow disciples Mrs. Ambreen Moghees Sarwari Qadri and Neyn Tara Sarwari Qadri for reviewing the book and helping me with any question I had throughout the translation. May Allah accept this effort and make this book a source of enlightenment of heart for all the seekers of Reality.
