Continuing on, when he mentions wilayah in the poem he is talking about wilayat e khaasa, a unique, special, close attachment a person develops with Allah swt.
Wilyah is divided into two categories; (1) wilayat e aamma, (2) wilayat e khaasa. All believers have wilayat e aamma, a general "friendship" with Allah swt, alhamdulillah. Allah swt is Al Mumin, and He calls us Mumineen. What an honor! We all should be very grateful for this, appreciate it, value it and maintain it, do not do anything against it.
But then when a believer adopts taqwa, fears Allah swt in his words and actions, increases his worship of Allah swt, he enters into a higher degree of wilayat termed as wilayat e khaasa.
The poet is keeping his theme of humility and humbleness here and saying "by staying awake at night (in worship) do not think you have attained wilayah (khaasa)."
What he is saying here is, "Who are you to think that you are worthy of a close relationship with Allah swt? You and wilayat e khaasa? Come on friend, get real, if Allah swt showed a movie of your day to day life of your actions, your thoughts, your words, your lies, how you cheated, how you stole, if such a movie of your life was shown to your mother and father, to your sisters, your friends, your teachers, you would die from the shame. Think of what you are created from, you were made from a dirty drop that if it gets on clothes makes the cloth impure - and you are dreaming of being a wali of Allah swt?"
Of all the deeds awliyah perform, a common deed they have is humility and humbleness to the extent that no wali of Allah thinks himself to be a wali. A real and true wali of Allah has annihilated even the thought of it to the extent that he thinks, "What? Me and being a wali of Allah? Impossible!" Though there may not be anyone else on the face of the Earth who has more taqwa than him but he never thinks of himself as a muttaqi, does not claim it, doesn't think of himself to be a wali of Allah, and does not claim it. Whereas here we are in the most deplorable state, sometimes even our eeman in question, yet we think we are among the believers given glad tidings of paradise, like we came out from the womb with keys to jannah. We are just seeing dreams of wilayah, living in a fantasy world.
