Post No. 12: Ta'wil of the word 'Madînat al-ilm' and Salwat Tasbi

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

Ya Ali Madad. In his firman to Surat Jamat on 12th October, 1903, NOOR Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.) said "If you always read religious books, you will come to know that the throne of Imamat is continuous, perpetual and everlasting." Therefore, let us seek luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) help (tayid) to understand the tawil of Qur'anic words or ayats pertaining to Imâm and Imâmat, and then recite a bouquet of salwats to strengthen our knowledge (ilm) and faith (iman).

Ta'wil of word 'Madînat al-ilm' (The city of knowledge):
 
"It is stated in Hadith: "I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate, so whoever wants knowledge let him come through the gate." (Sharh, I, 89). That is, whoever wants the treasures of the knowledge of certainty, the eye of certainty, and the truth of certainty, then it is necessary and imperative for him to enter the city of knowledge of the Prophet by walking in the light of the unprecedented guidance of the Ali of the time."

Let us recite a bouquet of angelic salwats to strengthen our knowledge (ilm) and faith (iman).

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!

Global Prayer:

Follow these links to read an article or a poem on salwat, or hear the recitation of Ayatul Kursi and Salwat.

May Mowla enrich you with inspired knowledge (ilm-i laduni) through these spiritual and intellectual exercises. Ameen.
