Knowledge Section:

The four tasbis [Ya Allāh (O Allāh), Ya Wahāb (O Supreme Bestower), Ya Ali (O, the Most High), Allāhu Samad (Allāh is eternal)] were initiated by NOOR Mowlana Imam Aga Hassan Ali Shah (a.s). These tasbis used to be recited every day in the evenings. The mention of these tasbis is also in the First Ismaili Constitution published around 1912 by the Africa Supreme Council. NOOR Mowlana Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.) switched this Tasbih from evening to morning recitation in Jamat Khanas around the same period. These tasbis were introduced in Indo-Pak sub Continent around 1950 when NOOR Mowlana Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.) introduced the corrected version of the old Dua.
