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

Prayer Card No. 13: Yâ Râheman, Yâ Rahim 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:

Let us reflect on the first two beautiful names of Allah:

001 Ar-Rahmân The Beneficent He who gives blessings and prosperity to all beings without showing disparity. Yaa-Rahmân
002 Ar-Rahim The Merciful He who gives blessings and prosperity, particularly to those who use the Divine gifts as Allah has directed;
and He is merciful to believers in the hereafter too.
Yaa-Rahim

Now let us reflect on the wisdom pertaining to the word 'Rahmân' (Most Beneficent, Most Kind):

"It is mentioned in verse (21:107): "And we sent you not but as mercy unto the worlds (personal worlds)." According to Imam Jafar as-Sadiq, by worlds are only meant human beings and human beings are born in all times. Thus, the holy Prophet is made the treasure and centre of mercy or the universal mercy for the cycles of Prophets as well as for the cycle of Imams. Therefore, the holy Prophet, according to his own blessed words, is the chief of Prophets. If someone is truly the leader of his community, then he is chief in word and deed. That is, the true chief is the one who benefits the community in every respect. " [Source: Tawil No. 385, A Thousand Wisdoms]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Rahmân, Yâ Rahim and Pir-Shâh tasbis to appreciate the Lord's kindness and mercy upon the individual personal worlds of all human beings.

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.

Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh (4)
(O Mowla! I implore you as the Pir and the Shah of our time)

Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh (8)
