Kalâmê Mowlâ Verse:
The barakat of luminous prayers (bandagi) leads to radiance on a practising believer's face as explained in verse 168 NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.)'s Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Momankê moho upar nur adkêrâ,
jo beech rât uth karê kamâee
râtkee bandagee dinmê(n) deesê,
kê karanhârkê moho upar howê roshânaee

On the face of a believer (momin) will be radiant with Light (Noor)
if he/she wakes up in the middle of the night to gain profit through luminous prayers.
The barakat of luminous prayers (bandagi) will be seen during the day,
and the face of the practising momin will be radiant.

Qiyâmatkê din koee moho kâlê,
koee moho howê safêd
wey jeenê ratme(n) bandagi keetee,
sâchê seedaksê unê pâee umêd .....168

On the Day of Judgement (Qiyaamaa),
some faces will be dark, others will be radiant.
Those who have performed luminous prayers (bandagi) at night
with true conviction, will attain their desire .....168

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.
