Welcoming NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam (a.s.) to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
(Project Duration: 40-days from May 1 to June 9, 2009)
Ya Ali Madad. The University of Alberta, located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, will confer a Honorary Doctor of Laws degree to His Highness the Aga Khan [Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.)] on June 9, 2009. Today's date is May 1, 2009, therefore this highly anticipated event will take place in 40 days. In order to create a spiritual atmosphere for this event and provide opportunity to each and every murid of the Holy Imam who may be residing in any part of the world to participate in this event, SalmanSpiritual.com is pleased to present to the Global Jamat, a 40-day project titled "Welcoming Noor Mowlana Hazir Imam to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada".
The word "Edmonton" is used as a metaphor for "the real heart or consciousness or the spiritual house of a devoted murid". Therefore, we would like to augment this occasion as well as the upcoming Baitul Khyal Satado to prepare ourselves spiritually by reciting Ayatul Kursi, invoking Angelic Salwat, performing bandagi, and reciting 500 verses of Anant Akhado. The activities are designed to meet the diverse needs of the Global Jamat.
In order to extend a heartfelt and spiritual welcome to our beloved Noor Mowlana Hazir Imam, the following activities are highly encouraged:

This project is open to the global Jamat and could be used as a part of one's personal spiritual search.

May our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazir Imam, through the barakat of this project, grant you, your family, your Jamat and the worldwide Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually. May Mowla bestow Sunshine in your heart and bless you with the inner vision of the Truth. Ameen.
