"Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out?" — Holy Qur'an 6:122

Gem No. 12 :: Who Will Be Present at the Diamond Jubilee Darbars?
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad. In this Diamond Jubilee year of our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, let us reflect on the following question:
Who will be present at the Diamond Jubilee Darbars?
In my last post, I used the metaphor of a spiritual house for our personal worlds. The space that is present in our spiritual house is not a vacuum but it is a space in which all representative spiritual particles of everything are present in an innate or a potential form. This is the concept of Aalm-Dharr (The world of spiritual particles). In contrast to our personal worlds, the Aalm-Dharr in Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam is fully actualized. As this concept is fundamental, let us learn about it in some detail:
In the following paragraph I have first presented the Gujrati transliterated text of an excerpt of a firman of Noor Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.):
"Have khiyal karo ke tamaru(n) asal shu(n) chhe? Koi kahe ke maru(n) asal Aadam thi chhe; to Aadam thi tamara jism thaya chhe, pa(n) teni pahela tamaru(n) asal "aalm zare" arthat zina rajkan jeva (zara) parantu te zara tame "aalme zare" na vakhat thi thaya chho, pa(n) teni pahela shu(n) hata? zara thi pa(n) zina (la) aarthat nirakar kahevay chhe te hata. Ane tyathi tamo utarta utarta a manushay dehima bandhana."
[Source: Mombasa 10-11-1905; p. 41; Transliterated by Alwaez Rai Amiraly Amlani]
The translation is:
"Now you should think about your origin, i.e., where is your original abode? Some say that my origin is from Adam; your body is created from Adam but before this your origin was in aalm-i dharr (the world of spiritual particles). In that world, you were in the form of tiny dust-like spiritual particles, but before that you were in even finer spiritual particles than dharr which can be described as being formless in the World of Oneness (nirakar). From that place you have descended in a step wise manner into this human form."
"Alam-i Dharr means the world of spiritual particles, which means the particles of the souls. It can be seen only after the eye of the heart opens, therefore, everybody cannot see it."
[Source: What is Soul?, p. 64]
"In the world of spiritual particles (alam-i dharr), not only do the people of all times exist in form of spiritual particles, but also each and everything of the universe and existents."
[Source: What is Soul?, p. 61]
"The world of spiritual particles works throughout time by dwelling in the blessed personaility of the Holy Imam. In reality, the world of spiritual particles is the world of souls and angels, because in the example of Hazrat Adam there were souls as well as angels. Their collective name is light or the Supreme Soul or nafs-i wahidah, in which are gathered all souls. In fact all things of the universe and the existents are there for there is nothing without mercy (rahmat) and knowledge (ilm, 40:7). Allah has encompassed everything in the exalted personality of the Imam-i mubin (36:12) and therefore the world of particles cannot be excluded from this Divine law."
[Source: Psalms of Lovers, p. 61]
In addition to belonging to the human race, we are in a Single Soul through the mechanism of Alam-i dharr (the World of Spiritual Particles) because the alam-i dhar dwells in the spirituality and luminosity of our Holy Imam. Therefore, in addition to the murids who will be physically present at the upcoming Darbars, the global Jamat, humanity at large and all souls will also be present at these occasions. These grand events of the Diamond Jubilee will be witnessed by all people, consciously or unconsciously, and by all souls. If we nurture the spiritual bond with our beloved Imam, we will also experience the peace and rays of Light when NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam remembers us at these Darbars even though we may not be physically present at these events. Everybody will benefit from these Darbars! Al-Hamdulillah!

Therefore, in addition to the murids who will be physically present at the Grand Darbars, the global Jamat, humanity at large and all souls will also be present at this occasion. This grand event of the Diamond Jubilee will be witnessed by all people, consciously or unconsciously, and by all souls. If we nurture the spiritual bond with our beloved Imam, we will also experience the peace and rays of Light when NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam remembers us at this Darbar even though we may not be physically present at these events. Everybody will benefit from the Grand Darbars! Al-Hamdulillah!
To prepare for Noorani Didars and also strengthen our bond with Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam, let us practise our faith with conviction by attending Jamat Khana regularly, submitting dasond, saying three Duas on time, practising bandagi because it is a luminous prayer, reciting angelic salwats, performing abundant dhikr, performing volunteer service, balancing din and duniya, and accumulating material, spiritual and luminous nazranas in our personal worlds. Educational resources for higher spiritual enlightenment are listed on the index page of SalmanSpiritual.com.
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
Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
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.
O Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam bless us with many Holy Batuni-Noorani didars during the Diamond Jubilee year, and empower us to present Material, Spiritual and Luminous Nazranas. Ameen.
