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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak. The motivation for this 30-day project is to increase the intensity of prayers during the month of Holy Ramadan. For this purpose, 30 posts for each auspicious night of Holy Ramadan have been prepared. Each post consists of four parts:

  1. Enlightenment teachings from the Holy Qu'ran;
  2. Excerpt(s) from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission';
  3. A Dhikr tasbi; and
  4. Angelic salwat

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: An excerpt from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§40] a dâ'î should be humble, not haughty with the believers. God has said: 'That afterlife We grant to those who seek no high-handedness on this earth nor corruption; the good end is for those who fear God.'57 Ja'far b. Muhammad al-Sâdiq said as well: 'Do not become scholars who are so tyrannical as to pass your falsehoods as truths of yours'; and the Prophet said: 'Grandeur is a cloak of God Who is great and majestic; he who attempts to wrest His cloak from Him, God breaks into little pieces.'"

Footnotes

57. Qur'an, 28:83.

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
The path of spiritual progress and development involves: (1) the creation of human beings; (2) the evolution of human beings through faith, knowledge, ibadat, and good deeds; and (3) re-creation of human beings into perfect beings. These three functions of Allah are represented by the following Divine Names: Al-Khaaliq (The Creator), Al-Baari (The Evolver) and Al-Musawwir (The Flawless Shaper). In order to be re-created, transmutation occurs in the heart (qalb) which leads to the opening and full development of the faculty of the heart. This gift is not given to every human being because it requires complete submission to He who is above all else.

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

Noore Karim, Ya Khaliq, Noore Karim, Ya Baari, Noore Karim, Ya Musawir
With the help of the Light of Noore Karim, we call upon
the Creator, the Evolver and the Flawless Shaper
