Timeless Batini-Noorani Bandagi Gems for the Global Jamat

Gem No. 14: How is the Ism-i Azam bestowed to pious murid get actualized?

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 tawil to understand the relationship between Ism-i Azam bestowed upon a pious murid and the Light of the Holy Imam:

"It is said in verse (14:24): "Have you not seen how Allah has set forth a parable? A pure word is like a pure tree, whose root is firmly fixed and whose branch is in heaven." The pure word is the ism-i a'zam, which a pious murid receives from the Imam of the time, and the pure tree is the blessed personality of the Imam of the time himself. Among these, one ism-i a'zam is in the form of a personality and the other is in the form of a word. But the very great miracle of God is that in the personal world both become one. That is, the word becomes the blessed light of the Imam."
(Source: Tawil 527: A Thousand Wisdoms(Pages 280-281)

The ism-i azam (bol) is in its potential form when it is bestowed to a murid by the Holy Imam. When the murid follows all the practices of the faith and practices bandagi, i.e., the luminious prayer with a luminous word at a luminous time in the small watches of the night, the ism-i azam becomes actualized. The enlightened murid witnesses that the ism-i azam (bol) has become the light of Holy Imam in his/her forehead. A murid who achieves this loft status becomes a real spiritual and luminous child of the Holy Imam! Al-Hamdulillah, all this is possible because it is in the treasury of our Holy Imam, Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam (a.s.)! Let us pray for a Golden Noorani Didar in our foreheads! Ameen.

2. Dhikr Section:

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Ya Ali, Ya Allah, Ya Muhammad, Ya Muhammad, Ya Ali tasbis to call on the Light of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.). At present, the Lights of Muhammad and Ali are manifested in NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) Hazar Imam (Please recite the Holy Salwat).

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

Ya Ali, Ya Allah, Ya Muhammad, Ya Muhammad Ya Ali
Invoking Allah, the Light of Ali and the Light of Muhammad in the spiritual heart

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
