Wisdom 36:

"Jama'at Khanah is the workshop of Light, where Light is created from dhikr and 'ibadat, from knowledge and advice, from love for the Imam of the time, from every kind of good deed and service and from bol and baytu'l-khayal."

Kalâmê Mowlâ Verse:
Courage strengthens faith and generates the Lord's Mercy as explained in verse 312 of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.)'s Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Himat badee eemâân nishannee,
bhâee badee râkho apnee himat,
jees keeseekee himat badee,
us upar sahee âwê rabkee rahêmat

Great courage is the sign of faith (Imaan).
Brothers, be very courageous.
The one who has great courage,
upon him will be the Lord's mercy and grace.

rabkee rahêmat so eemân purâ,
usthee ârâm pâwê jeew aur tan,
rabkee rahêmat sab âshâ purê
adka howê mâl aur dhan ......312

Through the grace and mercy of the Lord, faith is complete,
from which the body and soul attains rest.
Through the grace and mercy of the Lord, all hopes are fulfilled,
and property and wealth increases. ......312

Dhikr Section:
Let us refer to ta'wil of the word 'Ism a'zam (Supreme Name of God):

"Imam Jafar as-Sâdiq has said: "Allah has concealed one name, i.e., the supreme Name and He has 360 names." (Lughât, Sin, p. 175). The supreme Name or the great secret is in two forms: as a word and as a person. As a word, it is "al-hayy'l-qayyûm" (the Everling, the Everlasting) (2:255); 3:2) and as a person it is the True Guide, i.e., the Prophet and Imam of the time (See Wajh, p. 124-29." [Source: Tawil 64: A Thousand Wisdoms]

'Allahu laaa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huu 'Al-Hayyul-Qayyuum (Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal) is the first sentence of Ayatul Kursi, the most important ayat of the Holy Qur'an 2:255). From Ismaili point of view, we say that the beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam is living and his Noor is eternal. Therefore, today we will implore him with this most powerful prayer by reciting the Yâ Hayyul-Qayyum, Yâ Aliyul Azim, Yâ Sahebuz-Zaman, Yâ Hazar Imam Tasbi.

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

Ya Hayyul-Qayyum, Ya Aliyul Azim,
Ya Sahebuz-Zaman, Ya Hazar Imam
O The Ever-Living, The Eternal! O The Most High, The Supreme!
O Lord of the Age and Time! O our Present and Living Imam

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
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

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

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