"Allah is the Protecting Guardian of those who believe. He bringeth them out of darkness into light." — Holy Qur'an 2:257

Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam's Birthday:
A Time to Reflect on the Concept that the Holy Imam is the Holder of Keys to Paradise

In the following verse of ginan, Pir Sadardin says:

SAMBLO MOMAN VED NI VAT
BAHESHT NI KUNCHI AAPNA SATGURJI NE HAATH
SATGURSU MUN DRADH KARI LAVO
SATGUR TALA KHOLE MOMAN BAHESHTE JAAO

Meaning: Listen O Momins! The scripture (Ved-Quran) says that the key of the paradise is in the hand of our True Guide (Satgur-Imam). Keep your mind in tune most profoundly with the Satgur. He will unlock the doors of paradise for you and you will enter into it.

The calligraphy in the card symbolizes the doors of the paradise. The doors are closed for all except for those who are ushered in the paradise by the Holy Imam. The momins who follow the path of religion under the guidance of the Holy Imam will merge into the eternal light.
