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

Ya Ali Madad. In verse 90 of Kalâmê Mowlâ, NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) explains that knowledge of the faith and constant remembrance (dhikr) of God are the mechanisms to control temptations. The transliteration and translation of the verse is as follows:

Kurân padê dil roshan howê,
momeen dil bohot howê sukh,
bohot kurân padê to lâlach ghatê,
ke lâlach dilku(n) bedâ hay dukh

The heart of the person who reads the Holy Qur'ân is enlightened,
and such a momin's heart attains peace.
By reading the Holy Qurân frequently, the worldly temptations are reduced,
for temptations are the cause of great unhappiness to the heart.

Kurân padê jo padnâ jâno,
nahee to suno rabkâ kalâm,
sunnâ bhee jone pâo keeseesê,
to hardam leeo khudâa rasulkâ nâm .....90

Recite the Holy Qurâân if you know how to,
else listen to the sayings of the Lord.
And if you do not get an opportunity to listen to them,
recite the name of the Prophet of God always.

Divine Remembrance (dhikr) helps to overcome many other problems as described below:

"The single remedy for every kind of false fear, every kind of perplexity, inferiority complex, worldly greed, embarrassment, torment of bad or disturbing thoughts, sadness, restlessness, disappointment, unwanted anger, indignity, slip of tongue, lack of courage, malice, pride, vanity, ignorance, negligence, laziness, meanness, uneasiness, oblivion, obtuseness, mental confusion and other such ethical and spiritual diseases, is the satisfaction of heart which is attained from the blessings of Divine remembrance as is said in verse (13:28): "Verily in the remembrance of God do the hearts find satisfaction (gradually)." It should be remembered that, from the remembrance of God, the hearts find satisfaction gradually. Since the hearts are in different ranks, therefore, from the beginning to the end, the satisfaction depends on the knowledge and good deeds of each individual."

Please note that NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has advised us to learn about the Qur'an. If this is not possible, then we should at least learn from his sayings. If that is not possible, we should to listen to teachers of true, spiritual knowledge. If the latter is not possible, we should call on the names of Allah, Holy Prophet and Holy Imams.

Refer to 40 prayer cards to learn about the power of Divine remembrance (Dhikr). Also, listen to audio files of tasbis at

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.
