:: Purification Gem No. 10: The Time of Real Joy and Happiness ::

Saturday, May 18, 2024

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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! This post for the auspicious tenth night of Holy Ramadan has five parts:

  1. A gem of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II;
  2. Two verses from the beautiful ginan of Sayyada Imambegum;
  3. Luminous dhikr of Yâ Wali, Yâ Karim;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project; and
  5. Global Prayers and Three Grand Aspirations.

 

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 about the time of real joy and happiness:

"O, believers, O, sincere ones! Smile only then when you are saved from the calamities and perils, when you are out of the whirlpool and on dry land, when you are safely back from the journey. It means, then, that joy will be attained when you arrive at the recognition of the Imam of the time, becoming his faithful and obedient slaves, and not being even for a moment disobedient or forgetful of him. You will then become enlightened by his recognition, – and it is this time which will be appropriate for [real] joy and merriment." (p.31)

 

Part 2: Teaching of Sayyada Imambegum
In the following verses of ginan, Hardam karo abhiyaas, Sayyada Imambegum advises us to be engaged in seeking divine knowledge and enlightening our soul by advancing ourselves to the state of 'Ajampiya jaamp', i.e., to a state where our 'bol' or the 'name of Lord' speaks by itself. This state can also be described as continuous silent remembrance within oneself.

Verses 6 & 7 recited by Shabnum Merali

Eji Brahm ginan maa(n)he hardam rahejo ji
Karjo aapno abhiyaas
Karine dekho ji
 
O Brother Always remain engrossed in the divine knowledge
and contemplate on yourself.
6
Eji Ajampiya jaamp bhai jis ghat bhitar ji
Sohi ghat hoyshe ujaash
Karine dekho ji
 
O Brother In the heart which has continuous silent remembrance
(unpronounced zikr), that heart will be enlightened.
