After death, life shifts from the material world to the spiritual realm where it continues in a new dimension and the ego remains active in the other world as well. This world is called in the Qur’an (Koran) the aeraaf. Its condition depends on the deeds of the individual in the material world. If at the time of death one is peaceful and free of mental impurities and filth then his or her state in the hereafter will be peaceful and serene as well. On the other hand, when one leaves this world with anxiety, guilty conscience or mental suffocation then the same conditions will greet that person in the aeraaf.
The Muraqaba of kashaf ul qaboor is done on the graveside of the deceased with whom you would like to meet. With this Muraqaba you will be able to not only meet the deceased but also to witness his or her condition in the hereafter.
When this Muraqaba is done at the tomb of saints (wali) the purpose is to gain spiritual blessing (faidh) from them and a glimpse of them (ziarat) as well.
The correct method of performing this Muraqaba is as follows:
Sit towards the end of the grave (as opposed to towards the tombstone). Inhale through the nose slowly and when you are full then exhale slowly without holding the breath. Repeat this eleven times. After that close your eyes and shift your focus inside the grave. After few moments let your mind go deep in the grave, as if that grave were a depth and your attention were falling in it. Keep this focus during the Muraqaba. The esoteric vision will eventually be activated and the soul of the deceased will show up. Depending on the mental capacity and strength, success comes with consistent practice and efforts.
The practice of this Muraqaba should be limited only to the tombs of saints or Imams (Ahlul Bayt) for their spiritual sightings (ziarat) and the blessings (faidh). Unnecessary Muraqaba on the graves of ordinary persons should be avoided.
THE FOLLOWING IS THE AUTHOR’S OWN ACCOUNT OF THE MURAQABA OF KASHAF UL QABOOR:
When I was doing the Muraqaba towards the end of the grave, I saw a layer of soul leave my body and go inside the grave. I saw His Highness Saint Lal Shahbaz Qalander sitting there. The grave looked like a big room. On the left hand side of the grave there was a window or small door. Lal Shahbaz Qalander said to me, “Go see what’s inside that door, you are free.”
When I opened the door I saw a huge garden. It was so beautiful and glorious that you could not find it anywhere in the world. It had everything. I saw birds whose wings were emitting light, flowers that were so beautiful that they are beyond the scope of human consciousness. There was another unique feature about those flowers that each one was a combination of multiple colors, colors that seemed like tiny light bulbs. When the wind blows, these colorful flowers create a magnificent scene similar to fireworks. The trees were unique in a way that their stems, branches, flowers and fruits were all round much like mushrooms. When air, flows between them it creates such a melody that one gets lost in it. This garden also had grapes of dark pink and blue colors. Each grape is as big as an apple in our world. The garden also had fountains and milky bayous.
The garden had many birds but I did not see any animals. I asked a parrot who was sitting in a beautiful tree where this park was situated. The parrot replied in a human language that this is heaven and the garden of God’s friend Lal Shahbaz Qalander. After saying that, it flew through the air singing hymns. In short, what I saw there is hard to describe in words. I took a branch of grapes and went back to Lal Shahbaz Qalander. The grand Saint asked me if liked the garden. I replied, “Your Highness, no one has ever seen or heard of this garden. I could not even fully appreciate it.”
