Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 29 :: Knowledge & Prayers for Advancement

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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Tuesday, June 12, 2018 is the twenty nineth night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. The background, overview, niyat and noble wishes of the 2018 Holy Ramadan Project is presented in the project details page. The schedule, web page links and PDF posts are presented on the index page of the directory.

This project has daily posts because we have to keep our souls charged after the mulaqats with Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The states of our spiritual hearts have changed so Holy Ramadan is the right time to assimilate deep spiritual knowledge and accelerate our upward journey. We all look forward to Imamat Day 2018 while members of our global jamat are also preparing for the upcoming Darbars in Paris, London and Lisbon. We are only 30 days away from Imamat Day 2018.

This post for the auspicious twenty nineth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. Gems of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.);
  2. A verse of ginan composed by Pir Sadardin (r.a.);
  3. Yâ Rahmân, Yâ Rahim dhikr;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project.

Part 1: Teaching of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.)
In Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us how to develop a sound heart and be blessed with holy didar (great vision):

"The qualities of the real man are such that he has the time to do all his work. Calamities will go far from him, and his enemies will be blind. His daily bread will be plentiful, he will have success and blessing in his work which will always be successful. His children will be healthy and pious, and his house prosperous. He will always be in time to do his work, and God the All-Forgiving will help him. The help of God will mean that the mirror of his heart will not be rusty, his faith will grow stronger, and his activities will be honest, his earnings will be lawful, and it will be from lawful sources that he will spend in the way of God. His good will reach the pure spirits of the believers and faithful and pious men. Lawful earnings are not the lot of hypocrites, they will not reach the unclean spirits of such people. It is honestly earned money which will reach the blessed throne and the presence of the Lord of the time of the pious believers, — The Lord of the world will be pleased by that devotee, and he will be well and blessed. God the All-Powerful and Mighty will be satisfied with the devotee, his faith will be strong, his body and soul will be sound (rawshan). His intelligence and comprehension will be bright, and in the hereafter the Lord of the Honour will grant his great vision (didar)." (p.11)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Sadardin
In the following verse from the Ginan, Nur vela nur piyo, Pir Sadardin implores to practice bandagi at the prescribed time:

Eji Nur vela nur piyo
Aa(n)hi kariyo man aanand ji
Pop vela raakho Shah Pirsu(n) sambandh ji

Tame Jaago jaago bhaida
Raiyan viyaaniya ji
Tame cheto momanbhaida
Raiyan viyaaniya ji

 
O Brother At the time of enlightenment (i.e., at Noorani time),
experience (or drink) the Light
and make your heart (soul) joyful.
At the time of the blooming (of the soul),
establish relationship with the Lord
and the Guide through Ism Azam.

O brothers! remain continuously awake
(in knowledge and remembrance) so that
the night of darkness and negligence may pass away.
O momins! be vigilant, so that the night of
darkness and negligence may pass away.
