Wealth, Children, Good Deeds and Salvation

This entry is part 4 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 ayats from the Holy Quran with sayings of Noor Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) from Nahjul Balagha for greater insights and wisdom. Let us read the following ayats of from the Holy Quran which pertain to wealth, children, good deeds and salvation:

Holy Qur’an Ayats

Wealth and children are an ornament of the life of the world. But the good deeds which endure are better in thy Lord’s sight for reward, and better in respect of hope.

Holy Qur’an (Pickthall) 18:46

Then when the Trumpet is blown, there will be no more relationships between them that Day, nor will one ask after another! Then those whose balance (of good deeds) is heavy,- they will attain salvation: But those whose balance is light, will be those who have lost their souls, in Hell will they abide.

Holy Qur’an (Pickthall) 23:101-103

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

In the following saying, NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has identified two kinds of people who can attain great benefits from this world:

Hazrath was asked the meaning of being well off or well provided for. Hazrath replied “Your welfare do not lie in having enormous wealth and numerous children but it rests in your being highly educated and forbearing, and in your being proud of your obedience to God. If you do a good deed then thank God for it, and if you commit a sin then repent and atone for it. In this world there is real welfare for two kinds of people: one is the person who, when commits a sin, atones for it and the other is the the man who is anxious to do good as much as possible.

Saying No. 94, Nahjul-Balagha, Jafery. 1981. p. 282.

In the following saying, NOOR Mawlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has defined the importance of religious education:

There are many educated people who have ruined their future on account of their ignorance of religion. Their (secular) knowledge did not prove of any avail to them.

Saying No. 106, Nahjul-Balagha, Jafery. 1981. p. 284.

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.
