Gems from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Moti Venti and NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.)'s Nahjul Balagha (3)

 

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

 

Ya Ali Madad! This post for the third day of Baitul Khayal Satado has two gems of knowledge: a verse from Moti Venti and a saying of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.).

 

Part 1: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin
Let us begin with the 15th verse of Moti Venti in which Pir Hasan Kabirdin yearns for closeness when the Lord ascends on the throne.

Eji târê amê tyâ(n) pukârshu(n)
jârê takhatê bêsasho ho râj
âd uniyâdthi kar zâliyâ
tê kêm mêlo âj
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri

15
0 Lord, I shall bewail loudly
when you ascend on the throne.
You held my hand since the beginning
Why do you abandoning me now?

Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

Part 2: Saying of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.)
The vision of the Divine Throne and the conditions to achieve this have been described by NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.)1 as follows:

"Remember that for those who fear God, He will find ways and means to keep them out of mischief and troubles, out of vices and impieties and out of temptations and trials. He will guide them out of darkness into light. He will bestow upon them His Bounties in this world and in the Heavens, He will grant them such an exalted place that it will be in the vicinity of His Throne, will be lighted with Divine light, and will have angels, prophets, and saints as visitors and neighbours. Now be ready for this glorious world, make yourself deserving of it and be ready to face death happily and hopefully, for death shall overtake every one of you and when it arrives the door of repentence will be closed and opportunities for good deeds will be lost. Remember that still your are passing through a period towards which those who passed before you have wished to return (i.e. life), but your stay here is ephermeral, you are also a traveller. Be ready to depart from this abode which is not your home and where you are not going to stay eternally. He has clearly informed you that this life is a transitory phase and you must make provisions for the next world before you leave it."

Part 4. Global Prayers and Three Grand Aspirations
Through the barakat of spiritual knowledge, tasbis and angelic salwat by many individuals of the global Jamat, O Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam, bless the global Jamat with:

  1. Spiritual and luminous tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually;
  2. Sunshine in our spiritual hearts and actualization of the inner vision of the Truth;
  3. Empowerment to present a Material Nazrana of time, knowledge and financial resources;
  4. Empowerment to present a Spiritual Nazrana in the form of a pure heart which is in a state of constant dhikr; and
  5. Empowerment to present a Luminous Nazrana in the form of a sound heart (qalb-i salim) which is in a state of constant dhikr and enlightenment.
