Timeless Batini-Noorani Bandagi Gems for the Global Jamat

Gem No. 11: What are the benefits of concentrating in bandagi?

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

Ya Ali Madad! This post has five parts:

1. A knowledge section on bandagi;
2. A dhikr section to activate the soul;
3. 5-verses of Giryah-u zâri from Anant Nâ Nav Chhugâ presented sequentially;
4. A prayer card for the well being and health our most beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam and his family, the upliftment the global Jamat, global Muslim community, and humanity at large, and the salvation of all departed souls; and
5. A prayer for the global Jamat.

1. Knowledge Section on Bandagi:

Let us reflect on the following teaching of Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.)

"Jêo das minute ek dhiyânthi ibâdat kari shakê chhê têoni chalis varasni ibâdat kartâ vadhâre ibâdatno faydo ha(n)shal thây chhê anê châlis varas karta vadhu kabul thâya chhê. "
 
Literal translation: Those who can concentrate for ten minutes in bandagi will get the benefit of 40 years of bandagi (done without concentration) and will get the acceptance of having performed more than of 40 years of bandagi.
 
(Karachi, 3-5-1920)

Please refer to post number 10 for Mowla's methods of concentrating in bandagi. Concentration is power which leads to enlightenment provided all other actions as described in the curriculum for higher spiritual enlightenment are met. Let us pray for a Noorani Didar in our foreheads! Ameen.

2. Dhikr Section:

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

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

4. Prayer Card

Niyat and Wish List:
Let us first declare our noble intentions and then invoke the angelic salwat for exoteric and esoteric purposes. Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being and health of the whole NOORANI family;
  2. Protection from the elements of dross and darkness;
  3. Sunshine in hearts, Light in our foreheads and the blessing of the inner vision of the Truth;
  4. Mushkil Aasan and material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat, the global Muslim community and humanity at large;
  5. Salvation of all departed souls;
  6. Empowerment of our children with the correct understanding of our holy faith; and
  7. External and internal peace for the whole humanity.
"It is mentioned in verse (33:33): "O you the people of the house (of the Prophet)! Verily Allah intends but to keep off from you (every kind of) uncleanness and purify you with a thorough purification." By the people of the house or ahl-i bayt are meant the holy Prophet himself, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatimah, Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Husayn."
[Source: Muslim, IV, 1883; Tirmidhi, V, 663)

Now let us recite angelic salwats to invoke Divine grace and mercy.

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

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants
