In The Precints Of Koh e Qaaf

The great gawth states that his lectures are for those men of the unseen who live in the precints of koh e Qaaf, their feet are on air but Allah has caused that heart to burn in the flames of divine love in the eagerness of divine union. When Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani declared this his son Sayyid Abdur Razzaq Jilani was sitting at the feet of his father besides the mimbar, he lifted up his head and for a few moments became awe stricken and fell unconscious to the floor. When this happened his clothes and turban burst into flames. The Gawth immediately descended from the Mimbar and extinguished the flames and said Abdur Razzaq you are also one of them. The narrator says that after the termination of the session he enquired from Sayyiduna Abdur Razzaq about his experience. He replied When my illustrious father made that declaration I looked up into the sky and saw a huge gathering of Men of the unseen standing checked in absolute attention as if enraptured by Divine Awe. Their clothes were on Fire. Some of them were screaming while others were in a state of spiritual delight pinned to their places. There were some who were so overcome with awe of my father that they fell to the ground.
