I prepared my first wish list in 1994 and took to the darbar hall in London. Since that time, I have revised it slightly and have taken it to other darbars. Since candle posting 119 was about unveiling, I wanted to incorporate this concept into my wish list. However, this small change required a complete edit of the whole document. So here is my revised and updated document entitled as 'My Wish List for the Upcoming Pradramani of Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam'. I do not know the dates but am motivated to start the preparation!
The first seven prayers are foundational and are absolutely necessary for all of us to meet our basic requirements of purification and preparation. The remaining seven prayers are for success in our personal search for higher spiritual enlightenment. These require ardent practice of faith especially bandagi, great courage, absolute humility and submission through servanthood. The fourteen prayers are presented on the next page.
You are most welcome to reflect upon the wish list and make one for yourself. It is also a good idea to carry the list into the didar hall and reflect upon it during the quiet time in the intezaar session.
Ya NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam keep us on Right Path which has been given to us by Allah through the Holy Quran, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s), Noor Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.), the Holy Imams, the Holy Pirs, the Holy Ginans & Qasidas, and your Holy Firmans.
