Part 2: An excerpt from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§50] A dâ'î should be forgiving and merciful to the believers, not malicious, not overly preoccupied with retribution, aggravations, disputes and contention. Novice believers will always be lacking in knowledge and subject to mistakes and erroneous intentions, which they then regret; but if they are not treated kindly and forgiven for it, they will despair of religion. God has said: 'O My servants who have transgressed against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of God for He forgives all sins';66 and He said to Muhammad His Prophet: 'Accept forgiveness; command the right; but turn away from those who are ignorant';67 and He said also: 'Lower your wing to those of the believers who follow you.'68"

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
Let us recite a luminous dhikr titled 'Rabbi zidni ilmaa' (Lord, increase me in knowledge) in our spiritual hearts and create an aspiration to actualize the Light of the Holy Ahlul-Bait and Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. May our spiritual hearts get filled with this NOOR and nothing else. Ameen.

My Lord, increase me in knowledge!

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.

Part 5: Global Prayers and Three Grand Aspirations
Through the barakat of recitation of Holy Ginans, gratitude tasbi 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;
  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;
  4. Empowerment to present a Spiritual Nazrana in the form of a pure heart which is in a state of constant dhikr; and
  5. Empowerment to present a Luminous Nazrana in the form of a sound heart (qalb-i salim) which is in a state of constant dhikr and enlightenment.
