(Fard/ Mufrad). Within the Sufi hierarchy he is the man called fard (or mufrad) 'The Solitary'. He stands equal to the Pole, but without a specific function such as that possessed by the Pole. He is the one who knows that he undergoes constant fluctuation of knowledge in each breath. He is outside the supervision of the qutb. He is compared to the 'Enraptured Angels' (al mala'ikat al muhayyamin).
