Wisdom 24:

"Physical hardship is temporary and spiritual comfort is permanent. This world is ephemeral and the next is everlasting and eternal. Divine mercy comprises everything."

Ginan Verse:
In the following verse from Moti Venti, Pir Hasan Kabirdin first supplicates to the Holy Imam for spiritual union and then prays for the salvation of all souls.

Eji sohâg sâmi mârâ âpajo
jê anatthi uthâya
unâ purâ jê âshvan(n)tâ
sâmi sarvê pâr la(n)gâya
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, Bless me with (spiritual) union
so that I can bear the burden of innumerable souls.
Imperfect, perfect and even hopeful souls who come to Thee,
0 Lord, grant them all salvation.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

Dhikr Section:
Let us reflect on the first two beautiful names of Allah:

001 Ar-Rahmân The Beneficent He who gives blessings and prosperity to all beings without showing disparity. Yaa-Rahmân
002 Ar-Rahim The Merciful He who gives blessings and prosperity, particularly to those who use the Divine gifts as Allah has directed;
and He is merciful to believers in the hereafter too.
Yaa-Rahim

Now let us reflect on the wisdom pertaining to the word 'Rahmân' (Most Beneficent, Most Kind):

"It is mentioned in verse (21:107): "And we sent you not but as mercy unto the worlds (personal worlds)." According to Imam Jafar as-Sadiq, by worlds are only meant human beings and human beings are born in all times. Thus, the holy Prophet is made the treasure and centre of mercy or the universal mercy for the cycles of Prophets as well as for the cycle of Imams. Therefore, the holy Prophet, according to his own blessed words, is the chief of Prophets. If someone is truly the leader of his community, then he is chief in word and deed. That is, the true chief is the one who benefits the community in every respect. " [Source: Tawil No. 385, A Thousand Wisdoms]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Rahmân, Yâ Rahim tasbi to appreciate the Lord's kindness and mercy upon the individual personal worlds of all human beings.

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

Ya Rahman, Ya Rahim
O the Most Kind and the Most Merciful Lord
of individual personal worlds of all human beings

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.

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

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
