ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS OF THE OBJECTIONS FINDERS IN “AN ACCOUNT OF ACCESS TO SPIRITUALISM”
Note: Certain distracted (detracted) and jealous types of savants (learned men) went on against even “An Account of Access to Spiritualism” improperly (unreasonably) like (they have done with) Minart of Light, Antidote to Qal΄b (Heart). (They) attempted to harm the mission by portraying the false meanings of the correct words through proclaimed propaganda. So, the answers to their objections are being given for the satisfaction of the general pubic.
The fore most point is that the book “An Account of Access to Spiritualism” contains mostly the dreams, revelations and inspirations (divination’s) which occurred in the beginning during mystic path. There has not been claimed as the true faith for any of the revelations or inspirations (divination’s) but every one, along with the writer, has his own judgment that which is true and which will be a deception. Dreams, revelations and divination’s does not fall in Sharī΄at (Islamic Law), it does not matter whether they are unethical.
An Account of Access to Spiritualism; page no.20, the objection is: “This man has called Hazrat Rabia Basri R.A as prostitute.
Answer: The event relating to Hazrat Rabia Basri R.A comes in the books like this, your parents sold Hazrat Rabia Basri R.A to the members of a convoy and those convoy members sold Her R.A to a mistress of brothel. The prostitute caused her to manage the brothel. One day the mistress observed that why was the man not used to come again if once he had visited her. When a man entered the room, the door of room got shut then the mistress of brothel peeped through the whole of door that the man approached Rabia Basri R.A, met the gazes of each other, he was overshadowed by awfulness and his mouth began reciting Allah Allah like having no control. She R.A said to him, “Go, I have united you spiritually with Allah, so (always) keep yourself passionate with the divine love of Allah and don’t ever try to think to come here.” When mistress viewed the whole scene then heart also began trembling and fell into Her R.A foot and applied for being forgiven that I came to know your magnificence today. You are released from now. Hazrat Rabia Basri R.A said, “Would that you never know secrete of me. Whoever had been coming here was use to be blessed with Faqī´r (Darvesh΄ī). I have made four hundred till now.”
Mūjaďdid (revivalist) Alf Sani R.A has written in his Holy Maktoobaat (texts) relating to victories of Maka at page no. 730, 731, “The cursed Iblīs´ (Satan) cannot captivate (disguise) that particular face of Muhammad (PBUH) with which He (PBUH) is buried in Madina Munnawara. (It) can disguise in every that face of Muhammad (PBUH) other than that particular face.”
Mūjaďdid (revivalist) says, “I am saying that it is difficult to know an intention and extracting the orders with that face. Because it is possible that the curse enemy would have come in between and had shown the impossible into the form of possibility and would have thrown the viewer into suspiciousness and would have shown its own expressions and gesticulations in the form of expressions and gesticulations of (PBUH).

The event relating to Mastani is objectionable in “An Account of Access to Spiritualism”. No doubt, several mistakes against Sharī΄at (Islamic Law) were committed by me in the beginning accidentally and innocence. They were mere an accident and were not my practice and belief. When Allah SWT blessed with divine help and comprehension then I begged before Allah SWT bitterly, repented and prayed for getting forgiveness. In the name of most merciful, most bountiful Allah (SWT)
