(Faqir). The one who is poor and needy towards Allah. In gaining the knowledge that Allah is the One and Only, Who is Self-sufficient and Independent, the faqir attains to the condition of perfect slave. The faqir is the one who 'delivers his trust (i.e. existence) back to its Owner'. The faqir has returned to his original state of non-existence within the Knowledge of Allah. And because Allah's Knowledge is Eternal, the faqir too has attained Eternity.
