Balance Between Din and Duniya

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Timeless Gems of Hazrat Ali (a.s.)

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

Ya Ali Madad! In this post, I have cross linked an ayat from the Holy Quran with a saying of Noor Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) from Nahjul Balagha for greater insights and wisdom. Let us read the following verse from the Holy Quran:

Holy Qur’an Ayat

Say: O My bondmen who believe! Observe your duty to your Lord. For those who do good in this world there is good, and Allah’s earth is spacious. Verily the steadfast will be paid their wages without stint.

Holy Qur’an (Pickthall) 39:10

In order to achieve the balance between din (spiritual) and duniya (material), let us reflect and implement the following teaching of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.):

Saying of Noor Mowlana Murtaza Ali’s (a.s.)

Whoever keeps his affairs in order with God (follows His orders sincerely), God will also put his affairs with men in order; whoever makes arrangements for salvation, the Lord will arrange his worldly affairs; whoever advises his own self, God will also protect him.

Saying No. 81, Nahjul-Balagha, Jafery. 1981. p. 281.

Angelic Salwat Supplication

Let us now start supplicating with angelic salwat, Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad (O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants) and recite at least 101 salwats or continuous salwat for 3 to 5 minutes to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam for mushkil aasan for material and spiritual upliftment.

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

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

Ardent Prayers

May our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, through the knowledge and barakat of the Holy Qur'an, Holy Ginans, Ayatul Kursi and Angelic Salwat, grant the global Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually. May Mowla bestow Sunshine in our hearts, light in our foreheads, and the inner vision of the Truth in our intellects. Ameen.

May Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam fill your spiritual heart with his NOOR and nothing else and empower you to overcome fear, anxiety and uncertainty as we pass through this calamity! Ameen.

May the Almighty Creator help the whole humanity because we are all created from a Single Soul! Ameen.

Rakh Mowla je Noor te Yaqeen (Certainly, we trust in Mowla's Light only)
