Wisdom 11:

"God's wisdom is wondrous in that, He not only keeps His things spread, but also enfolds them whenever He wants, just as the Holy Qur'an is spread out in 114 surahs and is also enfolded in the Ummu'l Kitab (Suratu'l Fatihah). Therefore, the reward of its recitation is equal to that of the entire Qur'an."

Ginan Verse:

In the following verse of ginan from Pir Shams's Kesri si(n)h svaroop bhulaayo teach us that 'Ali is now and Ali is forever':

Eji Kesri si(n)h svaroop bhulaayo
Aja kere sange aja hoi rahyo
Ese bharam-me(n) jivanku(n) bhulaayo

Bharam sab chhodi bhai Ali Ali karna
Hay bi Ali ne hoyse bi Ali
Esa vachan tame dil maa(n)he dharna
Esa vachan tame dil maa(n)he dharna
Bharam sab chhodi bhai Ali Ali karna

 
O Brother The lion forgot its lionish form,
and in the company of goats it lived as a goat.
In such delusion life's purpose is forgotten.

Forsaking all delusion, brother, keep reciting the name of Ali.
'Ali is now and Ali will be' are the words you should take to heart.
Such are the words you should take to heart.
Forsaking all delusion, brother, keep reciting the name of Ali.

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).

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

Ya Ali, Ya Allah, Ya Muhammad, Ya Muhammad Ya Ali
Invoking Allah, the Light of Ali and the Light of Muhammad in the spiritual heart

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.
