Ochinpuri believes human life is a part of long journey that starts from ‘Alom-e-arwah (unseen place of souls – ochinpur)’ and meets its eternal part ‘(akhirat – ochinpur)’ after a physical death. Every human being has come from ochinpur and will leave this transitory world to go permanently to ochinpur again. From this point every human being is ‘Ochinpuri’ in real sense.
DRESS OF OCHINPURI
Dress reflects the mind and internal status of a person. Ochinpuri thinks he is always a guilty person to Allah and he will certainly be punished for his wrong activities as such he is a prisoner. A person in prison finds himself in a limited place where he can do nothing as his own desire. On this earth a believer find himself always under supervision of Allah, he can do nothing without the will of Allah. Ochinpuri finds this world as a prison for him and he lives like a prisoner who has very limited liberty to control his interior and exterior.
