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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Saturday, May 8, 2021 is the twenty seventh night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. This post for the auspicious twenty seventh night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. Gems of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.);
  2. A verse of ginan composed from a ginan composed by Pir Abdul Nabi (r.a.);
  3. A luminous dhikr of Ya Ali, Mowla Ali;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project.

 

Part 1: Teaching of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.)
In Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us how to overcome temptations offered by Satan and act righteously:

"...so says God the All-High: A sincere devotee is one who sees Me as if present before him, whatever he is doing and wherever he is, feeling ashamed to do wrong. If an evil thought appears in his mind, or a desire to do wrong, or eat something that is not lawful to him, — he must at once appeal to Me, and I shall save him from the temptation offered by Satan, and from that evil deed which will be followed by punishment in the hereafter. And I shall cast into his heart the wish to act righteously. He will then act properly, receiving bliss and happiness in the hereafter. His life will pass pleasantly, and death will be pleasant." (p.24)

 

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Abdul Nabi
In the following verse from the Ginan, Venati karu(n) chhu(n) Saheb mora, Pir Abdul Nabi teaches us that those momins who practice their faith with conviction will be rewarded with an everlasting kingdom:

Verse 5 recited by Alwaez Rai Shamsuddin Bandali Haji

Eji Bhai re moman tame bhaave aaraadho
Ne hetesu(n) harine aaj ji
Jene ek manthi aapna Saheb sreviya
Te paamiya avichal raaj ji
 
O brother believer, adore with earnest intent
and love the Lord today.
Those who worship their Master with singleness of mind
attain the everlasting kingdom.
5
