Timeless Batuni-Noorani Didar Preparation Gems for the Global Jamat
Holy Ginan verses, Gems of Knowledge and Special Dhikr

Gem No. 6 :: Holy Batuni-Noorani Didar and the Practice of Giryah-u zâri
(Shedding Torrential Tears of Love for the Holy Imam)

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

Ya Ali Madad! This post has five parts:

1. Selected verses from beautiful ginans of our Holy Pirs;
2. Knowledge Section;
3. Spiritual Enlightenment Indicator No. 6;
4. Special Dhikr; and
5. Angelic Salwat Dhikr.

Part 1: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin (r.a.)

The following verse is taken from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Anant Akhado on the topic of Giryah-u zâri:

Âshâji araj ba(n)dagi kiriyâ karê
anê sidaksu(n) daso(n)d dêvêji
tabi satpa(n)ththi moman kilâvê
sohi didâri âp
Hari ana(n)t
Oh Lord Whosoever performs supplications (araj), meditations (bandagi) and prescribed rituals (kiriya) and remains steadfast
in the practice of tithe (dasond).
It is only then that this person can be called a momin on the
Right Path and is indeed the receiver of your vision (Didar).
Hari You are eternal;

Please note that the Holy Pir's didar package from the above verse of the holy ginan includes supplications, bandagi, all the ceremonies that we perform in Jamat Khana including dua, and submission of dasond. This ties beautifully with the higher spiritual enlightenment indicators presented so far.

Part 2: How do I do Giryah-u zâri and what are its benefits?

On the most auspicious occasion of the upcoming Darbars in this momentous extended Golden Jubilee year, I would like to draw your attention to giryah-u zâri resource with a prayer that may the rays of the Light of our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam enrich and empower each and every being in different spheres of existence in innumerable ways. Ameen.

Let us first reflect on the tawil of the following word from the Holy Qur'an:

  1. Teachings of Allah, the Holy Prophet (s.a.s.) and the Holy Imams (a.s.)

    Bukiyy (sing. bakin); Weeping, one who weeps:
    "In verse (19:58) there is the mention of tender heartedness, humility and weeping of Prophets and the friends of God in these words: "Whenever the ayat (verses) of the Compassionate were recited to them, they fell down, prostrating themselves and weeping." It should be noted that there are different kinds of love: intoxicating love, insane love, love of humility, love with recognition and love with gratitude. What type of love did the Prophets have?"
    (Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Tawil 175, p. 98) presented a giryah-u zâri posts project to the global Jamat to increase yearning for the Holy Didar of our beloved Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam on the occasion of Navroz 2008. The ten posts for this project have the following components: (1) knowledge about Giryah-u zari; (2) 5-verses of Moti Venti presented sequentially; and (3) 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

    May these gems of giryah-u zâri yield torrential tears of love for our most beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam (a.s.), purify our souls and prepare us for Golden Jubilee and Golden Noorani Didars. Ameen.

    It is my ardent request to all Ismailis to please take time to go through these posts because these will increase the quality of everybody's personal and collective didar! The results are guaranteed because this is the mechanism that was used by our Holy Prophets and Holy Pirs!

    Part 3: Higher Spiritual Enlightenment Indicator No. 6: Practising Giryah-u zâri and shedding tears of love with humility, love with recognition and love with graditude for the Holy Imam

    Now it is the time to conduct a self assessment by answering the following question:

    If shedding tears of love for beloved Mowla given a rating of 10, and not shedding tears of love at all is rated as zero, where do I stand?

    Let us all intensify our Giryah-u zâri for higher spiritual enlightenment as we approach the Darbar in Canada!

    The ultimate purpose of giryah-u zâri is tied first to the purification of the soul and creation of humility, followed by the manifestation of higher spirituality within the personal world which empowers the mu'min to use the positive spiritual and luminous energy to serve humanity.

    5. Practising bandagi for higher spiritual enlightenment every morning

    8. Performing voluntary service for the Holy Imam, his Jamat and his institutions
    9. Being Imam conscious & ethical

    Part 4: Special Dhikr

    For today's session, let us use the dhikr of Ya Ali, Mowla Ali:

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

    Ya Ali, Mowla Ali;
    O Light of Eternal Ali, O Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam

    Recited by Noorallah Juma

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

    Part 5: Angelic Salwat

    The recitation of angelic salwat tasbi with knowledge, understanding and ardent love leads purification of the soul, spiritual upliftment and enlightenment. It is one of the best ways to demonstrate ardent love to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam. Let us now present a bouquet of angelic salwats to our beloved Mowla.

    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

    Recited by Noorallah Juma

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

    Global Prayer:
    Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, grant us, our families, our Jamats, the worldwide Jamat, the Muslim Ummah, and humanity at large, luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually.
