Knowledge Section:

The practice of bandagi, a luminous prayer at a luminous time with a luminous word, is a key to higher spirituality and luminosity in Ismailism. Bandagi requires time, will, conviction and ability to perform it. Therefore, those murids who have the desire to excel in their search for higher spiritual enlightenment continually purify themselves and attend the prayer session every early morning and practice bandagi. Esoterically, the Holy Imam's Light enters into the personal world of the murid provided the murid centers his focus on the supreme word, ism-i azam. This is vividly described in the following gem of knowledge on the topic of bandagi:

The tawil of Habl Allah (Rope of Allah) is the Imam of the time and the mechanism for enlightenment of the personal world is through Ism-i Azam:

"God has sent the rope of His holy light from the higher world to the inhabitants of the lower world for the purpose that they may all together hold it fast so that they may be lifted to the higher world (Holy Qur'an 3:103). Externally the luminous rope of Allah is the holy personality of the Imam of the time and internally it is his ever-reaching light. The holy light of the Imam of the time comes to you specially through the ism-i azam (the supreme Name). Thus the Imam within you is the rope of Allah in the position of ism-i azam, to which you have to hold fast in such a way that all faculties of the heart and the mind are turned towards and centered upon it."
(Source: Tawil number 264, A Thousand Wisdoms: An Encyclopaedia of Tawil, pp. 142-143)

The ism-i azam is the door to luminosity, therefore it is a treasure that should be constantly remembered. Here is a humble dhikr to emphasize this point. Let us pray to NOOR Mowlana Hazar to empower us to practice the luminous prayer at a luminous time with a luminous word, i.e., perform bandagi with ism-i azam, the Supreme Name of God, with a greater effort, strength and enthusiasm.
