The Divine Name of al-Aleem is significant. Aleem means one who possesses knowledge and through its source all branches of knowledge are transferred to humans. The base of all branches of knowledge is the knowledge of the Divine Names (isma elahiya). Its first and foremost display is called Tadjalli (Divine Light)*. Tadjalli is in fact a mark, which contains within itself form and figure as well as movement. All the tadjallis of these Divine Names (isma husna) or attributes (sifaat elahiya) are marked inside the human spirit (ruh). These marks are in fact a record or file. Just like any microfiche, human spirit contains all the marks of the Divine Names (isma elahiya).
When a person is able to activate the link of the Divine Name, al Aleem, then they are able to watch the Tadjalli of all the Divine Names (isrna husna). This nisbat serves as a memory. Anyone trying to read that link during Muraqaba can do so during the stages of idraak, varood or shahood.
The way the Prophets of God and His saints have access to that memory or stored information is known in Sufism as Tarze Tafheem (Cognitive Mode). It is also referred as Sayr or Fatah. The literal meaning of tafheem is to gain understanding through awareness or to awaken it. From here through its Muraqaba, the knowledge of Divine Names (ilm Ladani) and those creative formulas are revealed which is the basis of the creation of this universe.
The Muraqaba of Tafheem is done past midnight. The student tries to concentrate on the Divine Name al-Aleem after emptying all the thoughts and imagining that he or she has the connective link of the Divine Name al-Aleem. During the learning period of al-Aleem the duration of wakefulness is increased besides practicing the Muraqaba. During Tarze Tafheem, the maximum time allowed for sleeping should not exceed two and a half hours in any twenty-four hour period. By being awake most of the time the Divine Name al -Aleem is fully activated with all of its energy. In the beginning most of the observation is witnessed when the eyes are closed during Muraqaba. However, later it happens while the eyes are open. When the vision appears with eyes closed it is referred as Varood, but when it happens with open eyes, it is called Shahood.
