Saturday, Aug. 3, 2024

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

  3. A dhikr tasbi for each night;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project; and

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: Excerpts 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:

"[§54] A dâ'î ought to possess a refinement of soul in addition to knowledge. Knowledge in the absence of refinement of the soul means that it lacks lustre, is unwelcome, its owner deficient in decorum, and his knowledge is of no benefit to him."

"[§55] He should have lofty aspirations, for he is responsible for great affairs in religion and in the world at large. God grants to the imams of His religion in every era, dominion over the earth by means of his dâ'îs and hujjas."
