:: Luminous Prayer (bandagi) at a Luminous Time leads to Purity ::

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

Ya Ali Madad. 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.

May our beloved Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) grant you, your family, your Jamat and the worldwide Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually, and may He grant you the inner vision of the Truth. Ameen.
