Guidance From Darkness into Light

This entry is part 3 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

Allah is the Protecting Guardian of those who believe. He brings them out of darkness into light. As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities. They bring them out of light into darkness. Such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein.

Holy Qur’an (Pickthall) 2:257

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

In the following saying, NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has described how the Lord guides his devoted believers from darkness into light. He has also warned us that our time on this earth is short. After death, the door of repentance will be closed and opportunities for good deeds will be lost. Therefore, the opportunity to barter good deeds for peace and light will also be lost. Only whatever we gather here in form of awakening and enlightening the soul will propel us forward in the next world.

Remember that for those who fear God, He will find ways and means to keep them out of mischief and troubles, out of vices and impieties and out of temptations and trials. He will guide them out of darkness into light. He will bestow upon them His Bounties in this world and in the Heavens, He will grant them such an exalted place that it will be in the vicinity of His Throne, will be lighted with Divine light, and will have angels, prophets, and saints as visitors and neighbours.

 

Now be ready for this glorious world, make yourself deserving of it and be ready to face death happily and hopefully, for death shall overtake every one of you and when it arrives the door of repentance will be closed and opportunities for good deeds will be lost. Remember that still you are passing through a period towards which those who passed before you have wished to return (i.e. life), but your stay here is ephermeral, you are also a traveller. Be ready to depart from this abode which is not your home and where you are not going to stay eternally. He has clearly informed you that this life is a transitory phase and you must make provisions for the next world before you leave it

Khutba No. 188, Nahjul-Balagha, Jafery. 1981. p. 150.

May Mowla grant us the true understanding of the purpose for which we have descended to this world and may He grant us avenues to enter into the realm of light. Ameen.

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)
