Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad. For this project, I have researched forty luminous prayers and have provided concise explanations for each one of them. The start date for this project can be customized so it can be conducted in a 40-day format as shown on the schedule page. Please bookmark this page if you are interested to do this project.

Posts for each day can be accessed the links in the left column of the schedule page. Please take a moment to read the Niyat and Prayer List before you embark on this project.

Satisfaction of Heart

"The single remedy for every kind of false fear, every kind of perplexity, inferiority complex, worldly greed, embarrassment, torment of bad or disturbing thoughts, sadness, restlessness, disappointment, unwanted anger, indignity, slip of tongue, lack of courage, malice, pride, vanity, ignorance, negligence, laziness, meanness, uneasiness, oblivion, obtuseness, mental confusion and other such ethical and spiritual diseases, is the satisfaction of heart which is attained from the blessings of Divine remembrance as is said in verse (13:28): "Verily in the remembrance of God do the hearts find satisfaction (gradually)." It should be remembered that, from the remembrance of God, the hearts find satisfaction gradually. Since the hearts are in different ranks, therefore, from the beginning to the end, the satisfaction depends on the knowledge and good deeds of each individual." [Source: Spiritual Healing, p. 11]

The Forty Luminous Prayers

In view of the above teaching and current state of human beings, it is necessary to perform extra prayers in order to create peace within oneself and then extend this inner peace to fellow human beings. The goal of this project is to create a list of prayers which would encourage a large number of people to call on God to extend peace on Earth and for the salvation of countless millions of souls. I have taken an Ismaili Muslim viewpoint in developing these prayer cards and am solely responsible for this project. Participation is voluntary and/or by invitation.

The 40-day Period

The motivation for this 40-day project is the following hadith of the Holy Prophet: "Whoever worships God sincerely for 40 days, God opens his heart, expands his chest and loosens his tongue to speak with wisdom even though he may be very weak in speaking and understanding." (Ahadith-i Mathnawi, p. 196).
