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

Ya Ali Madad. For this project, I have used the book ‘A Code of Conduct’, a Treatise on the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission edited and translated by Verena Klemm and Paul E. Walker, published in 2011. This book is a critical edition of the Arabic text and English translation of Ahmad b.Ibrahim al-Naysburi’s ‘al-Risala al-mujaza al-kafiya fi adab al-duat. This Arabic book was written in the Fatimid Period and all references go back to the Holy Quran.

The start date for this project can be customized so it can be conducted in a 30-day format during Holy Ramadan. A schedule page and 30 posts for each auspicious night of Holy Ramadan have been prepared. Please bookmark this page if you are interested to do this project.

Posts for each day can be accessed the links in the left column. Each post consists of four parts:

  1. Enlightenment teachings from the Holy Qu'ran;
  2. Excerpt(s) from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission';
  3. A dhikr tasbi for each night;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project.

This is one more tool to ignite the flame into each individual soul and convert it to a roaring Divine fire as described by Imam Ja'far as-Sâdiq (a.s):

The definition of divine love is this: "a divine fire that devours man completely".

Please take a moment to read the Niyat and Prayer List before you embark on this project.
