:: Didar Post #18: Learn From NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali's Teaching on What to ask for from God ::
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad. This prayer of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) teaches us what to ask of God and how. It further explains the attributes of persons who may be considered as the friends of God:
"O Lord! You love your friends more than they have ever been loved by anybody. You are the best and the most speedy Helper of those who rely upon nobody else but You. You know their secrets. Everything which is hidden in their minds is an open secret to You. You are fully aware of the depths of their knowledge and the flights of their imaginations. Your friend's highest ambition is to be in Your vicinity and Your favour. If remoteness from Your realm and Your favours disturbs and worries them, they get solace out of Your praise and recollection. If calamities and misfortunes befall them, they seek Your protection. They know that You are the master of everything and nothing can happen but with Your permission.
If I am confused and perplexed in asking of you the best of Your favours, then Lord lead me and guide me to beg of You of only such things as will be eternally beneficial to me, and looking to Your benevolence, mercy and grace in granting favours, I feel that such guidance will be neither too big for You nor a novelty. O Lord, please decide my case on basis of clemency and forgiveness, and not on the principle of justice and true reward."
May NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam inspire us to follow the Right Path and achieve a Golden Noorani Didar in this life time. Ameen.
