Ecstasy is called Wajad by Sufis: it is especially cultivated among the Chishtis. This bliss is the sign of spiritual development and also the opening for all inspirations and powers. This is the state of eternal peace, which purifies from all sins. Only the most advanced Sufis can experience Wajad. Although it is the most blissful and fascinating state, those who give themselves entirely to it become unbalanced, for too much of anything is undesirable; as the day's labor is a necessary precursor of the night's rest, so it is better to enjoy this spiritual bliss only after the due performance of worldly duties. Sufis generally enjoy Wajad while listening to music called Qawwali, special music producing emotions of love, fear, desire, repentance, etc.

Aspects of WajadEdit

There are five aspects of Wajad:

  • Wajad of dervishes, which produces a rhythmic motion of the body.
  • Wajad of idealists, expressed by a thrilling sensation of the body, tears and sighs.
  • Wajad of devotees, which creates an exalted state in the physical and mental body.
  • Wajad of saints, which creates perfect calm and peace.
  • Wajad of prophets, the realization of the highest consciousness called Sadrat al Manteha.

One who by the favor of the murshid arrives at the state of Wajad is undoubtedly the most blessed soul and deserves all adoration.
