Wisdom 15:

"The true Imam is the fountainhead of Light. If in the external sun there is everything for the creatures of the solar system, how can there be a lack of anything in the True Imam who is the mazhar (manifestation) of Divine Light?"

Ginan Verses:

How can we occupy a place near the throne of the Lord? In his ginan Aavine besone gothadi kariye, Pir Ali Akbar Beg's guidance is to practise meditation, observe religious vows, and reflect on the eternal truths which are in the ginans. All these will lead to the experience of being in the immortal abode of paradise. In our faith, this is possible and our great Pirs experienced paradise while being physically alive on this earth. The experience to be be near the throne and under the umbrella of the pure light of the Holy Imam should be the ultimate goal of one's physical existence.

Hak tu(n) paak tu(n) baadshah
Maherbaan bhi Ali tu(n)hi tu(n)
You are the eternal truth, and You are the holiest divine being.
To You belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth.
Most gracious also are You,
O Ali, You and none else but You.
Rab tu(n) Rahemaan tu(n)
Ali awwal aakhar kaazi tu(n)hi tu(n)
You are the sustainer of all beings, and most merciful are You.
The beginning of all things is from You,
and the end of everything is unto You.
O Ali, You and none else but You.

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.
