Wisdom 28:

"In reality, love for the Light is special for a mu'min. It is a matter for immense happiness that by knowledge and 'ibadat the fire of love blazes with more and more intensity and the beloved's elegance and beauty appear in a different form each time."

[Source: 40 Wisdoms of Gratitude]

Ginan Verse:
In the following verse from the Ginan, Ame Saheb saathe sahel kidha, Pir Bhikham describes how the Holy Imam bestowed honour, blessing and pleasures of the eternal abode of Light (NOOR) for him, his family and his future progeny:

Eji Puran purine laja raakhi
Ne kul hamaara ugaariya
Pop parmal agar chandan
Nure bhari amar aaliya ji
 
  Our Lord has completely fulfilled my desires and protected my honour;
and thus He has also saved my ancestry from suffering from eternal judgement.
He bestowed upon me such divine assurance in an atmosphere
filled with fragrance of flowers, agar and chandan
and overflowing with divine light.

Dhikr Section:
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallâhu 'alayhi wa-sallam) gave guidance to Muslims and the humanity for material, spiritual and intellectual upliftment. The rewards of glorifying, praising, declaring Allâh's unity and His greatness are among the fundamental concepts of Islam. In the following hadith, practical guidance is given to Muslims to incorporate these concepts in their lifestyles:

"Samura b. Jundub reported God's messenger as saying, "The most excellent words are four: Glory be to God (Subhan Allâh); Praise be to God (Al-Hamdu Lillâh); there is no god but God (Lâ ilâhâ illa-llâh); and God is most great (Allâhu Akbar)." A version has, "The words dearest to God are four: Glory be to God; Praise be to God; there is no god but God; and God is most great. It does not matter which you say first." [Source: Mishkat al Masabih Vol. I, p. 486.]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Allâhu Akbar, Subhan Allâh, Al-hamdu Lillâh, Lâ ilâhâ illa-llâh to glorify our Creator.

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

Allahu Akbar, Subhan Allah, Al-hamdu Lillah, La ilaha illa-llah
Allah is the Greatest, Glory be to Allah, Praise be to Allah, There is no god but Allah

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.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
