40 Luminous Prayer Cards to Expand the Spiritual Heart and Create Inner Peace

Prayer Card No. 12: Yā Rabbil ālameen

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

Ya Ali Madad. Let us first declare our noble intentions which are listed below. You may add your own list after this. Then we will say the prayer for the day and the anchor prayer.

Ya NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being of the whole NOORANI Family
  2. Mushkil Asaan for the global Jamat
  3. Material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat
  4. Salvation of all departed souls
  5. Peace for the whole humanity
  6. (Add your personal list here, if you wish)

Knowledge Section:

Let us reflect on three wisdoms pertaining to the word 'ālameen' (Worlds), which appears in Surah Faatihah, Ayat number 1 (1:1):

"It is related from Imam Jafar as-Sadiq that, by ālameen, are meant only human beings, because each one of them is an independent world (Qamus, p.344)" [Source: Tawil No. 562, A Thousand Wisdoms]

"Each of the personal worlds, i.e. each human being, is a world in which the entire external world is going to be enfolded. The word "ālameen" is mentioned seventy-three times in the Qur'an." [Source: Tawil No. 563, A Thousand Wisdoms]

"Since every individual is a world, therefore the word "ālameen" is used for human beings, and all attributive names of God are (mainly) related to them." [Source: Tawil No. 564, A Thousand Wisdoms]

Now let us compare the status of the personal worlds of individuals to that of the Holy Imam:

"Reflect duly and carefully upon this wisdom-filled saying of Mawlā Ali: "And you think that you are a tiny body, while the great universe is enfolded in you".

The above-mentioned state of human beings is in two ways: potentially and actually. Potentially, the external world is enfolded in every individual. Actually, it is the personal world of the manifest Imam in which God has encompassed the great world actually, and as such, no subtle thing, such as the Throne, the Pedestal, the Pen, or the Tablet, is excluded from it. In short, the great world is centred and confined within the manifest Imam consummately (perfectly) and completely." [Source: Tawil No. 109, A Thousand Wisdoms]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yā Rabbil ālameen tasbi to appreciate that: (1) the great external universe is going to be enfolded in each one of us; and (2) we also have the potential of actualizing the great universe within ourselves, i.e., all the treasures of paradise which is manifest in our NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam (please recite the Holy Salwat), can also be actualized within ourselves.

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

Yā Rabbil ālameen, Yā Rabbil ālameen, Yā Rabbil ālameen
(O Maintainer! I implore You to actualize the personal world of each deserving human being)

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

 

Anchor Tasbi:

Let us now start presenting a nazrana of angelic salwats to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam for the fulfillment of our noble wishes.

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

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants

Recited by Noorallah Juma

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

 

May your noble intentions be fulfilled through the barakat and light of these prayers. Ameen.

Haizinda — Qayampaya
