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 twenty eighth 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. Two verses of Garbi composed by Pir Shams (r.a.);
  3. Ya Haakim, Ya Wakil, Ya Fattah, Ya Salaam dhikr;
  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 how to become staunch, obedient (farman bardari) mu'mins, and how submit to our Lord NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, the Imam of the time, and the Lord of the world and of all who inhabit it:

"The (real) believer is one whose words (iqrar wa qawl) are unshakeable and true (haqq), whose thoughts of the heart are true, whose promise, whose love and affection are true. From head to foot that slave of God must be sincere and true (haqq). He must be sweet-worded and mild, his soul (ruh) must be sincere. He must be continually preoccupied with the remembrance of God (dhikr), always remaining in meditation (bandagi) and dhikr and praise of God, lauding and recognising God the All-High (Shinakht-i Haqq ta'ala). His actions must be pious, his behaviour proper. He must carry out the commandments and injunctions of his Lord (Khudawand) and pir. He must keep on his tongue the mention of Five Holy Persons (Panj Tan), mentioning and glorifying God with great affection. He recognizes his Master (Aqa), the Supreme Lord (Sahibu'l-amr), the Imam of the time, follows his path, always remaining obedient and listful (attentive) to him, delivering himself, his affairs, and everything that he possesses to that Lord (Mawla) who is the Imam of the time, and the Lord of the world and of all who inhabit it." (p.7)

 

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Shams
In the following two verses from the Garbi, Tame japjo din raat ke, Pir Shams says that if you remember the Lord day and night, your personal world will be illuminated and when you see the Holy Light in your forehead, you will enjoy immortality. It is also clear from this and other verses of Holy Ginans, and teachings of the Holy Imams that the concepts of eternal kingdom (avichal raaj), eternal existence (baqa), amar jaat (eternal kind) are all related to the enlightenment of the personal world:

Verses 1 & 2 recited by Alwaez Rai Shamsuddin Bandali Haji

Tame japjo din raat ke,
mandir maa(n)he mahaaljo re lol
 
Remember (the name of the Lord) day and night,
and create happiness in your personal world (sanctuary)
1
Jaa(n)ki surti laagi bharmand ke,
amar reljo re lol
 
When the concentration is focused at the
middle of the eye brows, you will enjoy immortality.

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
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants

  1. Spiritual and luminous tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually;
  2. Sunshine in our spiritual hearts and actualization of the inner vision of the Truth;
  3. Empowerment to present a Material Nazrana of time, knowledge and financial resources;
