Navroz 2004: A New Beginning for Spiritual Progress and Development
Explanation of artwork: The Navroz Card has a subtle reflection of 'Flower' and 'Light' - which symbolizes RUH and NUR, and it blends with the message by Pir Sadardin that the spiritual Navroz brings enlightenment in the Momin's heart and makes it like a blossoming flower, just as the physical Navroz brings new life and blossom to the vegetable kingdom - and therefore the Pir invites us to seek that spiritual Navroz for our souls.
All people live in the world of humanity (Nasut). In order to understand the concept of spiritual Navroz one has to understand the path of spiritual progress and development of human beings. This path is like a ladder with four steps:
The world of divinity has many names such as the World of Oneness, the World of One Reality (Monoreality), the Abode of Eternal Peace, and the place of annihilation and Eternal existence.
The Holy Prophets, the Holy Imams and the Holy Pirs have all experienced the World of Divinity. Please take an additional moment and reflect on the words of Pir Sadardin (r.a.) in the Navroz card designed by Alwaez Rai Amirali Amalani. To listen to the Choghadiya Ginan mentioned in the card, please download:
Sound track: mp3 format
The ginan is melodiously recited by Shabnam Merali and skillfully recorded by Arzina Merali.
Navroz Mubarak! May the Almighty Lord guide and advance you to the World of Divinity. Ameen.
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
Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
