Wisdom 31:

"The exalted Imam has two doors: the external and the internal, so that it may be possible for all murids of both near and far to have access to his presence."

Kalâmê Mowlâ Verse:
In order to harness the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.), please reflect on the gems of wisdom from verse 91 of Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Kalâm khudâekâ hay dilkee dâru,
kalâm padnêsê dil sahee howê changâ
dil roshan howê nur nurânee,
jo pahêlê gunâh seeâheesê rangâ

The sayings of God are a healing of the heart.
By reciting the sayings, the heart becomes joyous and pure.
The heart becomes totally immersed in Light,
and its sinful darkness is dispelled.

Bhâi sab daradkee dâru leekhee,
pan dilkê daradkee dâru hay yêh
kalâm khudâekâ yâd karo neet pado,
jeeyu(n) tum dil vasê rabkâ nêh .....91

O brother, there is a healing for every illness,
that of the heart lies in this (i.e., remembrance of His words).
Remember the sayings of God and recite them daily
and His love will possess your heart. .....(91)

Dhikr Section:
The relationship between Allah, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.), NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has been described by Pir Shihabu'd-din Shah Al-Husayni as follows:

"Muhammad and 'Ali both were manifestations of one and the the same Divine Light, but they came in two different persons (libâs,—dress) in order to uphold each other's mission among humans, and in order to introduce each other to people." [Source: True Meaning of Religion, p. 31]

"The holy Light which manifested in Muhammad and 'Ali continued in the world through Fatima, in her sons, Hasan and Husayn, and no power in the world can extinguish this Light. It is said (9:32): 'they wanted to extinguish the Light of God, but God brings His light through, to the end,' i.e., to the completion of its mission" [Source: True Meaning of Religion, p. 31]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Ali, Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Ali and Pir-Shâh tasbis to call on the Lights of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.). At present, these Lights are manifested in NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam.

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

Ya Ali Ya Muhammad, Ya Muhammad Ya Ali
I call upon the Light of Ali and the Light of Muhammad through this prayer)

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.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

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

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
