:: Luminous Prayer (Bandagi) Creates Radiance on a Believer's Face ::

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

Ya Ali Madad. 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

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.
