MORE BY Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti

    Certain Sheikh or dervishes have, enumerated 100 stages on the path of Truth and they say that 17 out of them pertain to the revelation and miracles. If any aspirant on reaching the 17th stage makes a demonstration of his capacity for revelation and miracles, then he will not be able to reach his ultimate destination by covering the remaining 83 stages. It is therefore necessary for a seer not to disclose himself or his secrets before the world before attaining all the 100 stages, and then too in very rate and exceptional circumstances. According to Khwajagaan-e-Chisht (i.e. those following the Chishti ‘silsila’ of Sufis), there are only 15 stages, out of which the 5th stage is that of the revelation while further advancement is subject to the identical condition laid down hereinbefore.
