40 Luminous Prayer Cards to Expand the Spiritual Heart and Create Inner Peace

Prayer Card No. 10: Allâhu Akbar, Subhan Allâh, Al-hamdu Lillâh, Lâ ilâhâ illa-llâh and Pir-Shâh Tasbis

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

Ya Ali Madad. Let us first declare our noble intentions which are listed below. You may add your own list after this. Then we will say the prayer for the day and the anchor prayer.

Ya NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being of the whole NOORANI Family
  2. Mushkil Asaan for the global Jamat
  3. Material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat
  4. Salvation of all departed souls
  5. Peace for the whole humanity
  6. (Add your personal list here, if you wish)

Knowledge Section:

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallâhu 'alayhi wa-sallam) gave guidance to Muslims and the humanity for material, spiritual and intellectual upliftment. The rewards of glorifying, praising, declaring Allâh's unity and His greatness are among the fundamental concepts of Islam. In the following hadith, practical guidance is given to Muslims to incorporate these concepts in their lifestyles:

"Samura b. Jundub reported God's messenger as saying, "The most excellent words are four: Glory be to God (Subhan Allâh); Praise be to God (Al-Hamdu Lillâh); there is no god but God (Lâ ilâhâ illa-llâh); and God is most great (Allâhu Akbar)." A version has, "The words dearest to God are four: Glory be to God; Praise be to God; there is no god but God; and God is most great. It does not matter which you say first." [Source: Mishkat al Masabih Vol. I, p. 486.]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Allâhu Akbar, Subhan Allâh, Al-hamdu Lillâh, Lâ ilâhâ illa-llâh and Pir-Shâh Tasbis to pray for upliftment here and in the hereafter.

Noor Mowlana Aga Ali Shah Maa Baap has said that if a person says 40 beads of Pir-Shâh and bestows the benefit to the whole Jamat, then He will reward him/her the benefit of building a Darkhana. Pir refers to the Light of the Holy Prophet and Shah refers to the Light of Hazrat Ali. At present, NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam holds the rank of Shah and Pir. Therefore, this tasbi is equivalent to Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Ali.
