Gem No. 4: Creating the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) Within Oneself


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


Ya Ali Madad! This post has five parts.


Part 1. Knowledge Section on Bandagi:

The practice of luminous prayer (bandagi) at a luminous time leads to purity. The mechanism for creating the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) within oneself is the practice of luminous prayer (bandagi) (with a luminous word (bol) if you are blessed with it) at a luminous time (early hours of the morning). The reward of this practice (and of abundant remembrance (dhikr) during the rest of of the day and night) leads to purification of the soul and enlightenment, as described in verse 162 of Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Badee fajar jagê nê bandagi karê,
to tu(n) nêkee kamâyâ
jo ees vêrâe jâgyâ,
so bandageesê nêkee pâyâ

The one who remains awake in the early hours of the morning
and performs his special luminous prayer (bandagi),
has indeed earned for himself purity.
If he remains awake at this time,
he has attained purity through luminous prayer (bandagi).

subu sâdak jâgo bhâi,
karo zikr ilâhi
namâz tasbi bandagisêthi,
hovê dil safâee .....162

Remain awake at the early hours of the morning brothers,
and perform the luminous remembrance of God.
Through prayers (namaz, Du'a),
divine remembrance (dhikr, recitation of tasbis),
and luminous prayers (bandagi) the heart is purified. .....162

Part 2. Dhikr Section:

On the occasion of the upcoming Darbars in Dubai and in the USA, here is a dhikr track to invoke two additiuonal attributes of the Light of Eternal Ali which is manifest in our present and living Imam, Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam (a.s.):

Let us reflect on the 55th and 42nd beautiful name of Allah:

055 Al-Wali The Protecting Associate He who is the Friend of His righteous devotees. Yaa-Wali
042 Al-Karim The Bountiful One He who is Generous and Munificent. Yaa-Karim

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Ya Wali, Ya Karim tasbi to appreciate the Lord's protection and generosity upon us.

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

Ya Wali, Ya Karim
O Mowla! You are our Protecting Associate
and You are the Bountiful One

Part 5. 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.
