Thursday, Jun. 13, 2024

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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! This post for this auspicious sixth 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. A verse from the beautiful ginan of Pir Sadardin (r.a.);
  3. Yâ Ghafuur, Yâ Ghaffâr, Yâ Tawwâb, Yâ Afuw tasbi;
  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 how to be alive in both worlds:

"Therefore, O believers, if you want to be alive in both worlds, perfect your faith, because (only) by the light of faith may you attain eternal life. And faith comes from and is perfected by the recognition and knowledge (ma'rifat wa shinakht) of the Imam of the time, and obedience and love for his followers. Therefore, follow your Imam, and be happy and united with each other amongst yourselves in order that you may be alive in both worlds, and in the hereafter, you may become resurrected with the pious, with prophets and saints in the presence of the Imam, with the greatest joy at meeting each other again." (pp.4-5)

 

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Sadardin
The following verse of ginan is taken from Pir Sadardin's Sab ghat Sami maaro bharpur betha aaya describes the transformation of the soul of a momin through contact with the Ever-Living Guide.

Verse 13 recited by Alwaez Rai Shamsuddin Bandali Haji

Eji Satgur paaras munivar traamba ne
Bhete to sovan hoy
Ek ji o ji, jirebhai re
 
O Brother The True Preceptor is like the philosopher's stone
and the followers are like copper.
When the copper comes in contact with
the philosopher's stone it becomes gold.
The followers gain spiritual enlightenment
from the contact of the Imam.
He is the only Glorious, O brother.
13

 

If you have the time, please follow this link to see the text, the literal translation of the other verses, and audio of this ginan. These verses of supplication soften, heal and purify the soul, and prepare it for enlightenment.

 

Part 3: Dhikr Section:
Sincere repentance is the foundation for all our religious ceremonies because it purifies our souls, stops us from sinning, and prepares us for enlightenment. Sincere repentance is also applicable to all our actions in the material and spiritual worlds because it is tied to the whole purification process. It has to be done with conviction and persistent practice.

We must also realize that the true spirit for asking for forgiveness is the intention of not committing the same sins again. This spirit should be fully respected, therefore, one has to make a list of one's errors, omissions and sins and take a vow of not committing these acts again. Only then the act of seeking forgiveness becomes a sincere repentance.

Let us recite Yâ Ghafuur, Yâ Ghaffâr, Yâ Tawwâb, and Yâ Afuw tasbis in order to clear the path of our return journey to our Creator.

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

Ya Ghafuur, Ya Ghaffar, Ya Tawwab, Ya Afuw
O Great Forgiver, O Great Forgiver,
O Ever-Acceptor of Repentance, O Supreme Pardoner

Recited by Noorallah Juma

Part 5. Global Prayers and Three Grand Aspirations
Through the barakat of thirty purification gems, tasbis and angelic salwat by many individuals of the global Jamat, O Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam, bless the global Jamat with:

  1. Spiritual and luminous tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually;
