Post No. 23: Ta'wil of the word 'Nafs' 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 'Nafs' (Soul):
 
"Mawlâ Ali has said: "He who recognizes his soul, indeed recognizes his Lord." However, it should be noted that the treasure of recognition does not exist in the ordinary human soul until the Holy Spirit is attained from the True Guide. Indeed, the Holy Spirit is in the Imam of the time and he, in reality, is your own soul. If you have recognized the Imam of the time, then you should know that you have recognized yourself and your Lord."

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.
