Gem No. 17: What is the state of 'Ajampiya jaamp'?

 

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

 

Ya Ali Madad! This post has five parts.

 

Part 1. Knowledge Section on Bandagi:

In the following verses of ginan, Hardam karo abhiyaas, Sayyada Imambegum advises us to be engaged in seeking divine knowledge and enlightening our soul by advancing ourselves to the state of 'Ajampiya jaamp', i.e., to a state where our 'bol' or the 'name of Lord' speaks by itself. This state can also be described as continuous silent remembrance within oneself.

Eji Brahm ginan maa(n)he hardam rahejo ji
Karjo aapno abhiyaas
Karine dekho ji
 
O Brother Always remain engrossed in the divine knowledge
and contemplate on yourself.
6
Eji Ajampiya jaamp bhai jis ghat bhitar ji
Sohi ghat hoyshe ujaash
Karine dekho ji
 
O Brother In the heart which has continuous silent remembrance
(unpronouced zikr), that heart will be enlightened.

The above concept is also mentioned in the Holy Qur'an:

Tawil of the word 'Tannur'

"In verse (11:40) God says; "And the oven gushed forth." That is, the dhikr or remembrance of ism-i a'zam became fast and automatic and the flood of spirituality started. Thus, by the tannur is meant the remembrance of ism-i a'zam."
 
(Source: Tawil 231: A Thousand Wisdoms p. 123)

Tawil of the word 'Ajal' (Haste, speed, hurry)

"It is mentioned in verse (21:37): "Man is created out of haste. Soon I shall show you My signs, so do not ask Me to hasten."
 
The spiritual light and progress of a salik are initially created from the speed of rapid dhikr and stenuous discipline, but when the minor resurrection and its signs (miracles) start to manifest, then many means and causes speak and work automatically."
 
(Source: Tawil 566: A Thousand Wisdoms pp. 303-304)

The journey is long. In the beginning, it is difficult but when the luminous dhikr becomes automatic, the real show begins. After attaining the state of 'ajampiya jaamp', the great treasures and secrets of spirituality are bestowed upon the pious mu'min. Let us make an aim for being deserving for this blessing in this extended Golden Jubilee year. May we all be blessed with a Golden Noorani Didar in our foreheads! Ameen.
