Prayer Card No. 24: Lā fatā illā Aliyyun wa lā sayfā illā Dhu'l-faqār

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 tawil of 'Dhu'l-faqār':

" On the day of the battle of Uhud, someone called out from heaven: "Lā fatā illā Aliyyun wa lā sayfā illā Dhu'l-faqār" (There is no valiant one like Ali and there is no sword like Dhu'l-faqār).

Question: Where are the valour of Ali and the stroke of Dhu'l-faqār now?

Answer: In the light of the Qur'an and the Hadith it has been evident that in the beginning there was the need for the battle of tanzil (exoteric practices), which was a symbol and parable of the battle of ta'wil (esoteric practices). However, since according to the Divine Will, the age (era) of ta'wil has started, the Ali of the time uses the Dhu'l-faqār of ta'wili wisdom, which is not limited like the iron Dhu'l-faqār, but it is all-inclusive and universal. (For more information on the age (era) of ta'wil see verses 7:53; 10:39)." [Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Tawil No. 366]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Lā fatā illā Aliyyun wa lā sayfā illā Dhu'l-faqār tasbi to pray to the Ali of our time to teach us to use the Dhu'l-faqār of ta'wili wisdom to solve current problems.

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

Lā fatā illā Aliyyun wa lā sayfā illā Dhu'l-faqār
(O Ali of our time, teach us to use the Dhu'l-faqār of ta'wili wisdom to solve current problems)

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

O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants

Recited by Noorallah Juma

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
