Giryah-u zâri, Moti Venti and Salwat Project for Navroz 2008
Golden Jubilee Darbar in Dubai and Golden Noorani Didar in our Foreheads
Tuesday, March 11, 2008 to Friday, March 21, 2008

Spark No. 3 :: Thursday, March 13, 2008

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

Ya Ali Madad. I have articulated this project for Navroz 2008 to increase yearning for the Holy Didar of our beloved Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The ten postings for this project have the following components: (1) a prayer card for the well being and health our most beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam and his family, the upliftment the global Jamat, global Muslim community, and humanity at large, and the salvation of all departed souls; (2) knowledge about Giryah-u zari; (3) 5-verses of Moti Venti presented sequentially; and (4) angelic salwat. On the most auspicious occasion of the upcoming Idd-e-Navroz of this momentous Golden Jubilee year, may the rays of the Light of our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam enrich and empower each and every being in different spheres of existence in innumerable ways. Ameen.

Part 1: Prayer Card for the Well-being and Health of the Whole Noorani Family

Let us first declare our noble intentions and then invoke the angelic salwat for exoteric and esoteric purposes:

Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being and health of the whole NOORANI family;
  2. Protection from the elements of dross and darkness;
  3. Sunshine in hearts, Light in our foreheads and the blessing of the inner vision of the Truth;
  4. Mushkil Aasan and material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat, the global Muslim community and humanity at large;
  5. Salvation of all departed souls;
  6. Empowerment of our children with the correct understanding of our holy faith; and
  7. External and internal peace for the whole humanity.

Part 2: Knowledge Component:

The paramount importance of Giryah-u zâri: "In religion, giryah-u zâri has paramount importance. For it is not only important in the sense of special prayer, but also as the basic condition of repentance. It is the song of love as well as the worship of walis (friends of God); it is the proof of having fear of God as well as that of showing gratitude; it is the means of real love and also that of luminous (noorani) didar; it embodies the purity of the heart and also the freshness of the soul; it is sweet-like meaningful pain as well as a tasteful medicine. Thus giryah-u zâri because of these higher qualities and virtues is the supreme ibadat and is accepted in the court of the Lord of honour will all these meanings." (Source: Studies in Dream and Spiritualism, p.23)

Eji char jugmâ(n) anant rupê hu(n) fari
nikâh toya na thâya
nikâh pado mârâ nâthji
mahêr karo jâdurâya
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, I have roamed in innumerable forms over the four ages,
yet I have not been united with you.
Sanctify our union, my Lord,
look upon me with mercy.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
11
Eji sâmi amê ekli kêtalik rahu(n)
din duâgmâ(n)hê jâya
duâg târinê sâmi suhâg karo
lajâ râkho chaud bhamannâ râya
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, How long shall I remain alone?
Everyday is passed in a state of being spiritually unwed (dohag).
I beseech you, my Master, make me your
(spiritual) bride (sohag) and banish my loneliness.
Protect my honour, 0 Master of fourteen universes.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
12
Eji mât tât bêni ba(n)dhavâ
nathi râkhati koy
sharan tamârê âvi hu(n) rahi
lajâ tamâri ho râya
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, My parents, brothers and sisters
do not accept me in the home (i.e., I physically detached).
I have come to Thee for shelter, succor and protection.
Now my honour lies with you.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
13
Eji sâmi lâj amâre jo jâyashe
to khot bêsashe tamanê
jârê mijlas mêlâvo karsho
târê arukhadi ma karsho amnê
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, If I lose my honour,
the loss will be indeed yours.
When there is an assembly of souls,
do not put me to shame.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
14
Eji târê amê tyâ(n) pukârshu(n)
jârê takhatê bêsasho ho râj
âd uniyâdthi kar zâliyâ
tê kêm mêlo âj
mahêr karo morâ sâ(n)hiyâ
abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, I shall bewail loudly
when you ascend onthe throne.
You held my hand since the beginning
Why do you abandoning me now?
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

Part 4: Angelic Salwat

"It is mentioned in verse (33:33): "O you the people of the house (of the Prophet)! Verily Allah intends but to keep off from you (every kind of) uncleanness and purify you with a thorough purification." By the people of the house or ahl-i bayt are meant the holy Prophet himself, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatimah, Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Husayn. (Muslim, IV, 1883; Tirmidhi, V, 663)" [Source: Tawil 144: A Thousand Wisdoms]

Now let us recite angelic salwats to invoke Divine grace, mercy and internal purification.
