The Universal Divine Man (al-Insan al-Kamil)

Who is the Universal Divine Man?

  1. There are many Saints present in the world in one era. Each one of them is stationed at different rank. Every Saint is at the footsteps of a Prophet. However, of all, only one chosen Saint is on the footsteps of Prophet Mohammad. That Saint is the  Universal Divine Man, leader of his time and the absolute slave of Allah in his era. He is the most superior in status among all Saints and is the al-Ghawth (the Leader, literally meaning the Helper, in cosmic spiritual hierarchy) of his era.

The Universal Divine Man is Manifestation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat

2. Ism-e-Allah Zaat is the Lord of all Divine names and attributes and the Lord of all Lords. The manifestation of Ism-e-Allah Zaat is the Universal Divine Man.

The Station of the Universal Divine Man

3. The highest and final station of the Mystics on the path of Faqr is to perish their being and annihilate their selves in the Divine Self of Allah. When they reach this stage, they have crossed the state of duality. The Hadith of Prophet Mohammad مُوْتُوْا قَبْلَ اَنْ تَمُوتُوا (meaning: Die before death) points towards the same station. Indeed, Faqr is accomplished at this level. This extreme level of Faqr is known as the station of annihilation in Hoo ( ھُو ), unification with Allah, annihilation in Allah, becoming immortal with Allah or union with Allah. This level also states Oneness of Allah. When the seeker of Allah reaches here, he becomes ‘the embodiment of Oneness of Allah’. This is the ultimate station in the exaltation of man. In common terminology, the person who reaches this station is called ‘the Universal Divine Man’ or ‘the Perfect Fakir’.


4. The Universal Divine Man knows the secret of reaching the reality of the Divine name اَللّٰہُ and the Divine Essence.

5. His inward is the place where the Divine lights of Essence are revealed. Its vastness is beyond explanation and imagination.

He is the ultimate manifestation of Allah

6. He becomes the ultimate manifestation and the mirror of Allah which reflects the Divine lights of Essence, the Divine attributes, names and the Divine actions. He adopts all the Divine attributes and morals and becomes their comprehensive representation.

The Universal Divine Man is the Divine Essence

7. After annihilation in the Divine Essence, the seeker is liberated from the human limitations. When he exalts from the state of annihilation to the immortal state, he is transformed into the Universal Divine Man becoming impeccable and perfect. Hence, his every deed is worship.

8. He is annihilated in Hoo (ھُو), annihilated in Allah and has become immortal with Allah. Allah reveals the signs of his Divine existence on the people of every era.

9. He is the leader of his era and progresses in correspondence to its rightful requirements.

10. When He is annihilated in the Divine Essence, he encompasses both kinds of Divine attributes i.e. the Divine majesty and the Divine beauty. However, when he achieves immortality with Allah then he only manifests the Divine beauty and becomes the source of compassion for all the worlds.
