Muraqaba of Colored Lights

Book :Muraqaba (The art and science of Sufi meditation)

Author :Khwaja Shamsuddin Azeemi

Short URL:

Everything that exists in this world is dominated by one or more colors. Nothing is of no color. Chemistry reveals that if any element goes through changes, it emits specific colors. This order of the colors is the basic characteristic of any clement. That is why in every element the order of colors is different. The same rule applies to humans as well. A well-organized system of colors and waves works in humans. The balance of those colors and waves controls the overall health of the individual. Changing of color affects the mood of the individual as well.

Colors also play an important role in the fields of emotions and feelings. It is our daily observation that when someone hears bad or tragic news, he or she gets pale. Fear also changes the color while during anger, eyes and face becomes red.

When the color of the room is red, it creates a feeling of burden or heaviness but if the same room is colored blue then peace and serenity is felt. Greenery and colorful flowers help us get rid of mental and physical fatigue. However, when the same trees become leafless during autumn our feelings change as well.

The theory of colors and lights states that those specific amounts of colors are prevalent not only in the physical body of humans but also in their senses. If for any given reason, the system of colors is changed or any specific color is increased or decreased or their ratio is changed, it leads to a change of feelings and emotions in an individual.

In the spiritual sciences, the color code is intentionally changed in a student so that his or her mind could come close to the subconscious senses. Continued practice of Muraqaba also helps in improving coloration in the senses. It is imperative that changes in the colors be done solely to improve or to awaken any specific skill. When supplementing colors and lights are not used to improve any specific sense, then normal senses are affected by it. A spiritual master always keeps his eyes on the progress of his student. When needed he can adjust the ratio of colors using his spiritual discretion (tasarraf) so that the consciousness remains functional with those changes in colors and light. On the other hand, when these changes occur in an individual abnormally then the body malfunctions and usually manifests in physical or psychological disorders. These disorders are usually labeled as general diseases or ailments like hypertension, anemia, asthma, cancer, arthritis, nervous and sensory or emotional disorders.

According to the spiritual sciences, only an expert spiritual master decides what color of light needs changing. In these decisions the personality type, mental strength, way of thinking, physical form and other factors are taken into consideration.

Using Muraqaba, the following are the different methods of absorbing light of any particular color in an individual.

METHOD-1: Sit in a comfortable position and imagine the waves of color and light and being absorbed by the whole body.

METHOD-2: During the Muraqaba imagine that from the sky the waves of color and light are falling and are being absorbed into your brain.

METHOD-3: During the Muraqaba imagine the entire surrounding environment lit with the same light.

METHOD-4: Imagine that you are immersed in the river of that light.

Medically and physiologically, each color of light has its own attributes. When the Muraqaba of a certain color of light is performed, it causes chemical changes in the brain, which enables it to absorb as much as possible the light of that color. Since medical and psychological disorders are not the subject matter of this book we are not going to discuss this matter in detail. However, we will present Muraqabas of color and light for such psychological disorders that occur because of mental confusions and paranoia.

NOTE: The decision, of what color of light Muraqaba is to be given must be made by no other than a spiritual master.



Blue lights are instrumental in getting rid of mental disorders, neck and back pain, vertebra malfunctions, depression, inferiority complex and weak willpower. The correct way to do the Muraqaba is as follows:

Imagine that you are sitting beneath the sky and the blue light is falling from the sky into your head and after passing through your entire body is going to the earth through the feet.

Case History

Mr..Jamiluddin from Lahore, Pakistan wrote:

I have been doing the Muraqaba of blue lights for my back and neck pain as prescribed by you. The first day the image of blue lights was a bit dim but the next day I felt a stream of blue light entering my brain from the sky. I felt my whole brain was filled with that light. Then these lights entered my heart, then through the stomach went to my feet, and finally were descending through the floor. My vision went towards the light, which was entering the ground. I felt as if the lights leaving my body were more impure than the one entering my body. A thought came to my mind that the exiting lights are taking the ailment with them. After doing this Muraqaba for about 15 minutes I felt light. After the end of the Muraqaba I also felt the pain had lessened. Now after a whole month of doing the Muraqaba, the pain is gone.


Ms. Razia Sultana from Tando Adam, Sindh wrote:

For the last three years, I had depression. I used to get hopelessness all the time without any obvious reason. I was aware of happiness but my life was void of it.

The Muraqaba of blue light has turned my world upside down. Within six weeks of continuing Muraqaba I am feeling happy after a long time. Obviously, the blue lights have turned away the waves of sadness from me.


Muhammad Hamid from Karachi, Pakistan wrote:

I am twenty years old and a college student. My willpower is so weak that I have become impractical. I do not have the confidence of initiating conversation with anyone in college. I have not been able to correct this problem… please help!

The author of this book prescribed the Muraqaba of blue light for him. A month later he responded in these words:

Dear Shaykh Azeemi,

No doubt, you do care for the creatures of God. Your prescribed blue color Muraqaba has revolutionized my life. During this past one month, my personality is totally changed. Now I am a normal healthy young man. I have great confidence. Below is the short version of my Muraqaba report.



On the first day, I was not able to concentrate. A stream of thoughts kept coming to my mind. Acting on your advice I did not pay attention to them. Then one day the image of the sky appeared and the blue light. Then for the next few days, the image appeared as if the blue lights from the sky were shining on my head like a searchlight and being absorbed by my heart. Then after that for a few days I saw my whole body is made of blue lights. I noticed that after each Muraqaba I felt very light. Slowly and steady, I was able to gain confidence and now I can talk to anyone like a normal person. I am feeling though a new me is born. I am still practicing the blue-light Muraqaba and planning to keep on doing it for a while.



Muraqaba of the yellow light is effective is curing digestive disorders such as gas, intestinal pain, dysentery, constipation, pyria, stomach ulcers and similar symptoms.


Case History

Salma Choudhry from Multan wrote,

“I had stomach ulcer for over two years. You told me to do Muraqaba of yellow -light, which I did. I was imagining that I was sitting beneath the sky and the lights of yellow color were falling into my head and were finally being stored in the stomach and the ulcer was being removed by it. For two weeks, I sensed that those lights are gradually reducing the ulcer. On the third week while doing Muraqaba, a thought crossed my mind that the ulcer had been removed and now only the bright yellow lights were in my stomach. It has been a month since but I still get those feelings during Muraqaba. I am no longer taking medicine for the ulcer and doing only the yellow-light Muraqaba. I do not know how to thank you. You have given me a new life.”


Mansoor Ahmed from Kakra Town wrote,

“I had chronic dysentery for a long period of time. I went to different doctors but it was not cured. I had almost lost all hope of being cured when a friend of mine suggested that I should contact you. After listening to my ordeal, Shaykh Azeemi suggested that I should do the Muraqaba of yellow lights, and God willing, I will be cured. I was a little skeptical when I first started because I had seen many well-known doctors and spent a fortune on it as well. For years, I was on a strict diet. I could not believe that this simple treatment would solve the problem. Nevertheless, I started the Muraqaba, but for the first two days I was not able to concentrate at all. On the third day however, the image of yellow light was eventually formed and I gained interest in the Muraqaba. After a couple of weeks, the image was fully formed and I started feeling the lights inside me. During this period the dysentery also stopped and I abstained from bad food as well. My appetite has increased as well.”


Another gentleman from Lahore wrote,

“For the last three years I was inflicted with intestinal pain. I went to a different doctor but the only way I could avoid the pain was to be on strict diet. Finally, I was told to do Muraqaba of yellow light. The burning sensation and the pain are almost gone. The other day I went to a doctor who said I no longer have the disease. I could not tell you how happy I was on that day. Now in every social gathering I tried to discuss the Muraqaba with the friends and family. In my view the best form of thankfulness is to promote the use of Muraqaba so that more and more people could benefit form it.”



It is best recommended for chest ailments such as chronic cough, asthma, ulceration of the lungs, and tuberculosis.


Case History

A female patient had chronic ulceration of the lungs. The disease had reached a point where she was vomiting blood. She was told to do Muraqaba of orange lights with massage of orange-light oil. Within two months the frequency of the blood vomiting dropped. After six months of the treatment, she was completely cured.


Mr. Athar Husavn from Phalia, Pakistan wrote,

“I have had asthma for the past twelve years and now am hopeless. I am writing you with hope that you will pay attention to my misery.”

He was also told to do Muraqaba of orange-light and was given the water made with orange-light.

By the grace of God the twelve-year-old disease finally ended.



Muraqaba of green light is given to treat hypertension, skin disorders such as itching, eczema, discoloration of skin, gonorrhea and syphilis.


Case History

Nasrullah Baig from Mardan wrote,

“I had itching all over my body. For three years, I got treatment at various places. However, often the itching turned into a wound and the pain was agonizing. Nevertheless after doing Muraqaba of green-light for six months I was fully cured by it. ”


Naheed Fatima from Mianwali, Pakistan wrote,

“I had severe high blood pressure for a while. Sometimes it gets so bad that even performing daily routines would become a challenge. My small children were affected by the condition as well. By doing Muraqaba of green-light every morning and before going to bed and having a green light bulb in my bedroom at night, my blood pressure came to normal within twenty days.”


Sundus Batool from Peshawar, Pakistan wrote,

“Discoloration of the skin was my problem. It made me self-conscious and I had extreme inferiority complex. Green-light Muraqaba has cured my condition.”



The Muraqaba of red-light is given to treat low blood pressure, depression, anemia, arthritis, low energy, cowardice, nervous breakdown, hopelessness, fear of death etc.


Case History

Dr. Niaz Hussein wrote:

“For the past twelve months my wife was the victim of nervous breakdowns. In medicine, tranquilizers usually are given to treat this disorder. Sleep helps in removing the nervous tension, however; the downside is that it is habit-forming. I gave my wife those sleeping pills for six months but then she became addicted to them. Stopping the medicine would always result in even more severe seizures. Finally, I told her to do the Muraqaba of red light. No doubt, Muraqaba is the most effective and harmless way of treatment. Now I often prescribe Muraqaba to my own patients besides giving them medicines so humanity would get benefit from it.”


Mr. Sibghatullah wrote,

“My mind always had thoughts of hopelessness. There were no obvious reasons for it. For some reason, I was always thinking negatively. With red-light Muraqaba my thinking has now changed to positive.”



It is given to treat male sexual dysfunction such as impotence, loss of libido and female uterine disorders.


Case History

A gentleman from DIG Khan, Pakistan wrote,

“Because of erectile dysfunction I was not fit to marry anyone. Consequently, I had an inferiority complex. Muraqaba of purple lights and the massage of purple-light oil have pretty much removed this weakness from me.”


A woman from Chichawatani, Pakistan wrote,

“I have been married for five years but was childless. Doctors had told me that my uterus was swollen. I went through different treatments but with no results. Finally the Muraqaba of violet light and the massage with its oil has removed the uterine swelling and I am now pregnant.”



Hysteria, mental seizures, weak memory, paranoia, insecurity, negative thoughts about life, isolation, are treated with Muraqaba of pink light.


Case History

Mr.Salman Ansari from Thatta, Pakistan wrote:

“I used to get seizures all the time. I went through some tough times. Often it happened while I was at the market. Because of falls, I was injured several times as well. On one occasion, it happened during a shower. After about an hour people took notice of that. Thereafter someone was with me all the time. God bless Azeemi Sahib who prescribed for me the Muraqaba of pink light. I have total confidence now that God willing I will be cured by it.”


Ms. Seema Nazli from Hyderabad wrote:

“Constant fear and paranoia had filled me with cowardice and an inferiority complex. Life after marriage was such a challenge for me, I was so mortified by my husband and in -laws that even when everything was right I was afraid of something. With this, I also had the fear of God. Every act felt like a sin and I was always repenting with fear of His wrath. All this pressure made me weak and I always felt fatigued. My husband told me to do a Muraqaba of pink light. After doing it for two months, now I am confident that I will be cured.”
