The Muraqaba of Void is the sub-branch of the above mentioned, Muraqaba. During this Muraqaba, the student imagines those conditions that reflect void or nothingness. His or her focus is the realm where there is nothing. No humankind, no trees, no animals and no sound. With no time and no space, they even feel themselves as nonexistent.
In the beginning it is quite difficult to imagine. Because under normal circumstances no one goes through a condition in which there is a negation. Keeping this in mind, the Muraqaba of Void is given systematically. The idea is to familiarize the student first with the reflection of void instead of the total void. For example:
The student imagines a desert or empty plateau where there is total silence and everything is motionless. In Sufism this Muraqaba is also known as Muraqaba Barri (land).
The student imagines that in a wide ocean whose water is still, the student is immersed in it. This Muraqaba is known as Muraqaba Bahr (ocean). The student imagines that he or she no longer exists, only God is present.
These imaginations are not difficult to form and when these levels are passed then the Muraqaba of Void is given to practice.
Through the Muraqaba of Void, the student goes through the states, which are contrary to the consciousness state of mind. When consciousness state becomes dormant then the subconscious state takes over. It is imperative to note that void does not mean a world where nothing exists; it simply means a world, which can only be explored through the subconscious.
