Mawlana1a

In the Risala Qudsiyya, the venerable Khwaja Muhammad Parsa writes while on his second trip to the Hijaz, the venerable Khwaja Baha al-Din Shah Naqshband ordered him to fix his blessed face in his imagination.

“The venerable Baha al‐ Din Naqshband advised to focus on the point between his eyebrows, keeping the conviction that his every state is visible and comprehensible to the Shaykh. In this manner, by drawing the dignity and majesty of the Shaykh upon oneself, one must purify his inner being” Rashahat ‘ayn al‐hayat

“Tabarani and Hakim narrated from Ibn Mas’ud who narrated from the Prophet of Allah, salutations and blessings upon him, “Gazing at ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib is worship”. The sanad for this hadith is hasan.” – Maktubat Rabbani, Vol. II, Letter 36
