By doing Muraqaba regularly, certain types of light and waves start gathering inside that person which negate gravity. Because of these lights, the student goes through different states in which gravitational pull does not apply. For example while doing Muraqaba, during walking, sitting or even laying the feeling of weight disappears (weightlessness). Sometimes the person sees self, made of light. During Muraqaba, this weightlessness could make the body suspended as well. Person sees self as flying in space. With closed eyes and open eyes as well, lights of various colors are seen. Flashes of light similar to a camera flash, is felt inside the brain. The body sometimes becomes oversensitive and the electrical flow inside oneโ€™s body is felt as well. Because of this concentration of lights, sometimes the body gets a shock too. Feelings of peace and serenity get stronger and deeper. Cognitive and problem solving abilities are enhanced. This and other similar conditions and sensations show the colorfulness of the luminous system and the enhancement of spiritual energy.

The following are Muraqaba reports sent to the author by various students:

Report I

When I close my eyes for Muraqaba, milky white light appears around my eyes. During the Muraqaba, thoughts come and go. Sometimes I get groggy and while others only ‘Al -Lah’ is the focus of attention. Lights of other colors also appear during Muraqaba for example blue, red and so on. When the influx of thoughts increases then I start the dhikr of Ya’ Haiyu Ya’ Qavyumu. After Muraqaba, different things happen. Sometimes my body feels very light, other times a lot heavier. Sometimes I do not feel like I have a body. Sometimes I feel like my body has moved upward. I also feel a sensation in my brain. Those sensations are pleasant in nature. During Muraqaba, these pleasant sensory waves engulf the brain. My brain gets intoxicated and I usually get to deep sleep afterwards. Occasionally it feels like a dreamy stage. On one occasion, my whole body defying gravity moved upward. I lost awareness of the surrounding. Often during Muraqaba, even the process of inhaling and exhaling felt like interference. Occasionally I see images of my murshid (author), also during Muraqaba, I visit various places, and those scenes are so beautiful that writing about them is virtually impossible

(Haroon Ahmed, Lahore)

 

Report II

At the start of Muraqba, I saw a circle (chakra) of greenish-yellow light then I felt like my bed and I were shaking. For a short while an eye made of light appeared near my right eye. My head and shoulder felt heavier and body was pulled upward. Dark shadows appeared before my eyes. Once a very red light appeared. I felt something in my back, which went all the way to the back of my head. I felt great as if under the magnetic influence of something.

I did Muraqaba for fifteen minutes. I was able to focus on the image. Throughout it felt like falling drops of rain, especially in my head. The sensation was so strong that I felt like these drops were making holes in my head. I was so focused on that thought that I became unaware of my body. I saw a big door had opened up towards the north, white light was coming out of it, and that light was falling on my body. Then a rain of light started to fall from the sky. I could feel the rain in the right side of any body suddenly the rain increased and the light fell on my body so intensely that I felt a shock in my body.

(Misbahuddin, Karachi)

 

Report III

I did Muraqaba after pre-dawn prayers and saw myself as a statue of pure light and rings of pure light were encircling me. I felt as I had two bodies, one, which was myself, and the other of pure light.

In addition to these, I am also experiencing certain changes in me. For instance, when someone is about to address me I somehow become aware of it ahead of time and whatever he or she is about to say, also comes to my mind. Secondly if wish to meet someone, that person somehow is able to contact me on his or her own. Thirdly if a big event or incident is about to happen, I get somewhat uneasy prior to that.

(Aslam, Mangla Dam)
