Wisdom 32:

"The secret of secrets of the Light of Imamat is that in this Tariqah it is commanded to do luminous 'ibadat (bandagi) so that the pure souls may receive the knowledge of names ('ilmu'l-asma')"

[Source: 40 Wisdoms of Gratitude]

Kalâmê Mowlâ Verse:
"God says (in the Holy Quran): "God commands you to pay back the 'amanat' to their owners" (Surah 4, Ayat 58). In order to create the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) within oneself, it is necessary to first submit dasond because it is an 'amanat' of God. Now let us study the tight connection between enlightenment, lawful consumption and firm faith, and the conseqences of unlawful consumption, as described in verse 129 of Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Dilkee roshani hay halâl khanêsê,
chêto bhâi karo âhâr halâl
uskâ iman dil donu(n) andhêrâ,
jo koee khâvê harâm mâl

The enlightenment of the heart comes from lawful consumption,
therefore brothers, be heedful and consume what is lawful.
The Imaan (Faith) and heart is blinded
of the one who consumes unlawful property.

ees ghat mindarmê (n) diva dil hay,
jo huva andhêrâ to imanki khot
huee andhêri nagri koi keesê na sujê,
pânch chor milkar luntê chotâ chot .....129

In this body the Divine Lamp is the heart.
If this lamp is extinguished, your Imaan will be at a loss.
When the bodily city is darkened thus, nothing worthwhile can happen
and the five thieves i.e., lust, anger, greed, pride and temptation will
come and meet from all directions and loot away everything worthwhile. .....129

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.
