Lesson 21: Murāqibah of the Name az-Zāhir (the apparent)
Intention: The Faid is coming to my Nafs (carnal-soul) and also on the five Latāif of Ālam al-Amr (subtleties of the Command-World, i.e., Qalb, Rūh, Sirr, Khafī and Akhfā) from the Being who is named by the Name Az-Zāhir (the apparent).
Lesson 22: Murāqibah of the Name al-Bātin (the innermost)
Intention: The Faid is arriving on the three elements of my body, air, water and fire, from the Being who is named by the Name al-Bātin (the innermost). The source of the Fayz is the Circle of Higher-Sainthood (dā’irā-i wilāyat-i ulyā), which is the sainthood of the Higher-Order angels.
Lesson 23: Murāqibah Kamālāt-e Nabuwwat (meditation of the perfections of Prophethood)
Lesson 24: Murāqibah Kamālāt-e Risālat (meditation of the perfections of Messengerhood)

Lesson 27: Murāqibah Haqīqat Qur’ān (meditation of the reality of Quran)
Lesson 28: Murāqibah Haqīqat Salāh (meditation of the reality of Salah)
Lesson 29: Murāqibah Ma’būdiyyat Sarfā

Lesson 31: Murāqibah Haqīqat Mūsavī (meditation of the Mosaic reality)
Lesson 32: Murāqibah Haqīqat Muhammadī (meditation of the Muhammadan reality)
Lesson 33: Murāqibah Haqīqat Ahmadī (meditation of the Ahmadan reality)
Lesson 34: Murāqibah Hubb-e Sarf (meditation of the pure love)
Hubb-i Sarf means the Pure Love. This is the actual Muhammadan Reality; the one mentioned earlier was a shadow of this.
Intention: Faid is coming from the Being [Dhāt] who is the source of Pure Love on my Singular Form (all the ten Latāif).
This stage is very close to the Absolute Being and the Non-Determination, because the very first manifestation was Love that is the origin of all manifestations and the source of creation.
This stage is specific to the Seal of the Prophets the Master of the Universe sallAllahu alaihi wasallam.
This stage involves traveling with perception, not real journey. Even the perception is deficient, incapable and wandering.
Reciting the Salawāt mentioned in the Meditation for Muhammad Reality is also helpful for progress in this stage.
Lesson 35: Murāqibah Lā-Ta’ayyun (meditation of the non-determination)
This is the final stage of the Naqshbandi Mujaddidi path, although in reality there is no end of progressing towards Allah Almighty.
Intention: “Faid is coming from the Pure Being who is the source of the Faid of Circle of Non-Determination, to my Singular Form (all the ten Latāif).”
Lā-Ta’ayyun means non-determination. This meditation is done to receive the Faid of the Being [Dhāt] that is higher than all determinations. Among the Prophets, this station is specific to the Seal of the Prophets the Final Messenger of Allah sallAllahu alaihi wasallam.
A seeker does not acquire this most sublime spiritual station, rather only travels perceptually through it, with extreme humbleness and humiliation.
العجز عن درک الذات ادراک، والقول بدرک الذات اشراک
“The (assertion of) incompetence of cognizing the Essence is Cognition.
The claim of cognizing the Essence is Shirk.”
