Part 1: The Holy Imam is the Rope of Allah (Habli'llah)

In the first post of this series, I listed spiritual and luminous attributes of Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. In this post, let us explore how is the Holy Imam the Rope of Allah (Habli'llah). Let us first study the following verses from the Holy Qur'an:

"And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude God's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth God make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided."
(Holy Qur'an 3:103)
"O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you, expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture, and forgiving much. Now hath come unto you light from Allah and plain Scripture, whereby Allah guides him who seeks His good pleasure unto paths of peace. He brings them out of darkness unto light by His decree, and guides them unto a straight path."
(Holy Qur'an 5:15-16)
1. Tawil of Habl Allah: The Luminous Rope of Allah, the Imam of the Time:
"In the time of Prophethood, the holy Prophet himself was the rope of Allah. He was both the speaking Qur'an and embodied Islam. After him the true Imams from his progeny were the rope of Allah in their respective times and today this most exalted position is indeed held by the Imam of the time. Praise belongs to Allah!"
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 265, p. 143)
2. Tawil of Habli'llah: Rope of Allah:
"The Rope of God is the Light of Intellect, which is the fountainhead of knowledge and guidance in the form of the Qur'an and the Light of Imamat. It has been said in a Noble Hadith that the Book of God (Qur'an) is a rope which extends from the heavens to the earth. This leads to the conclusion that there are no stages of spiritual and intellectual advancement without the help of this rope of the Qur'an and the Light of Imamat. Verse (5:15) clearly shows that these two important things have both come from God and that they are always together."
(Source: Pure Intellect, p. 25)
3. Tawil of Habl Allah: Rope of Allah, Imam of the Time:
"God has sent the rope of His holy light from the higher world to the inhabitants of the lower world for the purpose that they may all together hold it fast so that they may be lifted to the higher world (3:103). Externally the luminous rope of Allah is the holy personality of the Imam of the time and internally it is his ever-reaching light. The holy light of the Imam of the time comes to you especially through ism-i azam (the supreme name, bol). Thus the Imam within (batin) you is the rope of Allah in the position of the ism-i azam, to which you have to hold fast in such a way that all faculties of the heart and the mind are turned towards and centered upon it."
(Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Ta'wil No. 264, pp. 142-143)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin

The following verse is taken from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Anant Akhado:

Âshâji nar sonâ gur rupâ
hirâ rakhisar jânoji
moti lâl ginân pichhâno
to ja(m)po pirshâhno jâ(m)p
Hari ana(n)t
Oh Lord The Husband (Imam) is compared to gold
and the Guide (Pir) to silver
and know the devotee as diamond
Know the ginans (divine knowledge) as pearls and rubies
Recite (silently) the name of Pir Shah (Ism-i azam, bol)
so that you may shine like a diamond by exuding love
Hari You are eternal;
