Wisdom 9:

"In the exoteric aspect and esoteric aspect of religion there are so many favours of God that we can neither count them, nor duly thank Him for them, so the best way is to accept our weakness and shed some tears."

Venti Ginan Verse:

The following verse of ginan is taken from Pir Sadardin's Sab ghat Sami maaro bharpur betha aaya describes the transformation of the soul of a momin through contact with the Everliving Guide.

Eji Satgur paaras munivar traamba ne
Bhete to sovan hoy
Ek ji o ji, jirebhai re
 
O Brother The True Preceptor is like the philosopher's stone
and the followers are like copper.
When the copper comes in contact with
the philosopher's stone it becomes gold.
The followers gain spiritual enlightenment
from the contact of the Imam.
He is the only Glorious, O brother.

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"
