Saturday, Jun. 22, 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 fifteenth night of Holy Ramadan has five 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. One beautiful verse of supplication from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's (r.a.) Moti Venti;
  3. Luminous dhikr of Ya Haakim, Ya Wakil, Ya Fattah, Ya Salaam;
  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 to gain safety by obeying the Imam of the time:

"O, believers, O, pious ones! Now is the time when you should strengthen religion (din), by helping each other, by trying to gain knowledge, by advancing the religious cause, and striving to make your faith complete. Gain safety by obeying the Imam of the time and become completely obedient to his orders. Act and do everything piously, — a pious act is that which is carried out in obedience to the word of the Imam. Do unhesitatingly what you are told by the blessed word of the Imam, — then you will attain (real) salvation (rastagaari). Then follow your Pir and Prophet, (by this) following your God. Follow the Imam of your time strictly, so that he may take you under his protection, helping you, granting you victory and relief. Follow your Pir and regard your association with him as a great boon. Listen to his words and act according to them, because they are the words of the Imam, and if you act according to them, they will be like medicine to you. And obedience to the Imam, attention to his word, and that of the guiding Pir (Pir-i murshid) together with his instruction (taa'lim), followed by action in accord with these, will bring about the healing of spiritual ailments (maradhaa-i batiniyyat), and lead to soundness and clarity of the heart. And the wisdom of the teachers makes the mirror of heart clean and shining." (p.17)

 

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin
In the following verse from Moti Venti, Pir Hasan Kabirdin pleads for the spiritual union of the individual soul with the Universal Soul:

Moti Venti verse 12 recited by Shafiq Rawji

Eji sâmi amê ekli kêtalik rahu(n)
din duâgmâ(n)hê jâya
duâg târinê sâmi suhâg karo
lajâ râkho chaud bhamannâ râya
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
 
0 Lord, How long shall I remain alone?
Every day is passed in a state of being spiritually unwed (dohag).
I beseech you, my Master, make me your (spiritual) bride (sohag) and banish my loneliness.
Protect my honour, 0 Master of fourteen universes.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
12

Part 3: Dhikr Section:
At present, all human beings are going through a difficult time and are seeking solutions. After studying the list of 99 Divine names, I found the following four which can give solace to our souls and guidance to our intellects to understand the firmans of our Holy Imams:

  1. Ya-Haakim from the name Al-Haakim (The Wise): He who has wisdom in all orders and actions.

  2. Ya-Wakil from the name Al-Wakil (The Trustee): He who provides a solution for every problem in the best manner.

  3. Ya-Fattah from the name Al-Fattah (The Decider): He who opens the solution to all problems and eliminates obstacles.

  4. Ya-Salaam from the name As-Salaam (The Source of Peace): He who frees His Servants from all danger and obstruction.

Let us now recite this prayer with humility, courage and conviction for global peace and sustainable development externally and for mushkil aasan and peace internally within our own souls:

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

Ya Haakim, Ya Wakil, Ya Fattah, Ya Salaam
O Wise, O Trustee, O Decider, O the Source of Peace

Recited by Noorallah Juma

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

 

Part 4: Angelic Salwat
Let us now start presenting a nazrana of angelic salwats to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam for blessings, guidance and empowerment for the fulfillment of our noble wishes. May our beloved Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam continually keep us on the Right Path. Ameen.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
