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:

"[§56] He will have a good social disposition and manner. It is as God has said: 'Live with them with appropriate courtesy';74 and He said: 'And you are held to the highest character';75 and Ja'far b. Muhammad al-Sâdiq said: 'Live with people by their morals and do not call them pigs'; and he also said: 'Endear us to the people and do not make us hateful to them.'"

"[§57] He will be able to take the measure of everyone by observing them and listening to their words. He thus learns about those best suited to religion and those not so, or whose purpose is religious and whose is not religious, who is able to acquire knowledge and who is unable. It is essential that he be good at choosing among them and examining the state of everyone until the position of each becomes clear to him."

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
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

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.
