Venti Ginan Verse:

The following verse of ginan is taken from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's Aash puni ham Shah dar aaya expands the concept of attaching the soul to the Holy Imam through love, knowledge and devotion.

Eji Aash puni ham Shah dar aaya
Raiyan bini more Shah jagaaya
Shah jagaaya Shahka naamaj lina

Bi saa(n)iya het paaye rang laago
Bi saa(n)iya Pir paaye rang laago
Bi Saheb tose-thi man baandho
Moro dil baandho ji

 
O Brother: My hopes and wishes were accomplished when I attained the gate
(or recognition) of the Imam. The Imam awakened me from the night
(darkness of ignorance) which is now over.
Since the time when the Imam awakened me,
I have been taking His name only (wholeheartedly).

Oh Lord, through love, I have attained the colours (good values).
Oh Lord, through the (guidance of the) Pir, I have the colours.
Oh Imam, with you, my mind is bound and my heart is firm.

Dhikr Section:
The background of the prayer of Hazrat Bibi Fatimat-az-Zahra, Khatun-i-Jannat ('Alayhi-s-salam), is:

"Abu Huraira said that when Fatima went to the Prophet and asked him for a servant, he said, "Let me guide you to something which is better than a servant. You should say 'Glory be to God' (Subhan Allâh) thirty-three times, 'Praise be to God' (Al-Hamdu Lillâh) thirty-three times, and 'God is most great' (Allâhu Akbar) thirty-four times at each time of prayer and when you go to bed." [Source: Mishkat al Masabih Vol. I, p. 507-508]

Let us use a bouquet of Allâhu Akbar, Subhan Allâh, Al-hamdu Lillâh tasbis for mushkil aasan and for upliftment here and in the hereafter.

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

Allahu Akbar, Subhan Allah, Al-hamdu Lillah
Allah is the Greatest, Glory be to Allah, Praise be to Allah

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

Reaffirmation of Baiyat:
Let us also reaffirm our baiyat to our Holy Imam, NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam by reciting the Shahada from the second part of our Holy Dua:

"La ilaha illallah, Muhammadur-Rasoolullah, 'Aliyyun Amirul-Mu'mineen 'Aliyullah
Mowlana Shah Karim ul Hussaini, Al-Imamul Hazarul Maujood."

"There is no deity except Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, 'Ali - the master of believers - is from Allah.
Our Lord Shah Karim Al-Hussaini is our present living Imam"

Angelic Salwat Nazrana:
Let us now start presenting a nazrana of at least 100 salwats or continuous salwat for 3 to 5 minutes to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam for the fulfillment of our noble wishes. May our beloved Mowla continually keep us on the Right Path. Ameen.

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
