Wisdom 13:

"There are representative verses of the Wise Qur'an in which the entire Qur'an is epitomized, such as the verse (36:12): "And We have encompassed everything (of intellect, soul, knowledge and wisdom) in the Manifest Imam.""

Ginan Verses:

In the following verses of ginan, Hardam karo abhiyaas, Sayyada Imambegum advises us to be engaged in seeking divine knowledge and enlightening our soul by advancing ourselves to the state of 'Ajampiya jaamp', i.e., to a state where our 'bol' or the 'name of Lord' speaks by itself. This state can also be described as continuous silent remembrance within oneself.

Eji Brahm ginan maa(n)he hardam rahejo ji
Karjo aapno abhiyaas
Karine dekho ji
O Brother Always remain engrossed in the divine knowledge
and contemplate on yourself.
Eji Ajampiya jaamp bhai jis ghat bhitar ji
Sohi ghat hoyshe ujaash
Karine dekho ji
O Brother In the heart which has continuous silent remembrance
(unpronouced zikr), that heart will be enlightened.

If you have the time, please follow this link to see the text, the literal translation of the other verses, and audio of this ginan. These verses of supplication soften, heal and purify the soul, and prepare it for enlightenment.

Dhikr Section:
Let us reflect on the relationship between Allah, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.), NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.), Ali Zaman (Ali of this time) and the Holy Qur'an from the following ta'wils:

"It is said in an Hadith: "Recognize Allah by Allah" (Lughât. Ayn, p. 82; Ahadith-i Mathnawi, pp. 2, 106). That is, the recognition of God is possible in the illumination of His light and His light is the holy Prophet and the Imam of the time." [Source: Tawil No. 835, A Thousand Wisdoms]

"Externally Ali (Imam of the time) is a pure personality and internally a light. Externally the Qur'an is a glorious heavenly Book and internally (in the Prophet and Imam) it is a light. This shows that externally Ali and the Qur'an are separate from one another but internally they are not only together, they are one light." [Source: Tawil No. 820, A Thousand Wisdoms]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Ali, Yâ Allâh, Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Ali tasbis to call on the Light of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.). At present, the Lights of Muhammad and Ali are manifested in NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) Hazar Imam (Please recite the Holy Salwat).

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.
