Post No. 20: Ta'wil of the word 'Law lâka' 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 'Law lâka' (If it were not for you):
 
"It is said in a Hadith-i qudsi: "If it were not for you (O Muhammad), I would not have created the heavens (i.e., universe)." Thus a Prophet so beloved of God has said to Mawlâ Ali: "You are from me and I am from you."
