Wisdom 33:

"A mu'min always remembers God whether he is in comfort or in hardship, for it is by this that his heart remains satisfied (13:28). He is aware of the reality that he has to remain engaged in Divine remembrance always."

[Source: 40 Wisdoms of Gratitude]

Kalâmê Mowlâ Verse:
The mechanism for creating the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) within oneself is the practice of luminous prayer (bandagi) (with a luminous word (bol) if you are blessed with it) at a luminous time (early hours of the morning). The reward of this practice (and of abundant remembrance (dhikr) during the rest of of the day and night) leads to purification of the soul and enlightenment, as described in verse 162 of Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Badee fajar jagê nê bandagi karê,
to tu(n) nêkee kamâyâ
jo ees vêrâe jâgyâ,
so bandageesê nêkee pâyâ

The one who remains awake in the early hours of the morning
and performs his special luminous prayer (bandagi),
has indeed earned for himself purity.
If he remains awake at this time,
he has attained purity through luminous prayer (bandagi).

subu sâdak jâgo bhâi,
karo zikr ilâhi
namâz tasbi bandagisêthi,
hovê dil safâee .....162

Remain awake at the early hours of the morning brothers,
and perform the luminous remembrance of God.
Through prayers (namaz, Du'a), divine remembrance
(dhikr, recitation of tasbis), and luminous prayers (bandagi)
the heart is purified.

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
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!
