Preparation for Golden Noorani and Golden Jubilee Didars
:: Spiritual and Luminous Nazrana Sparks ::

Spark No. 4 :: Sabiqun (Those who excel)

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

Ya Ali Madad! Let us read a couple of ayats from the Holy Qur'an and their tawil:

"And those foremost (in faith) will be foremost (in the hereafter). These will be those nearest to God." [Source: Holy Qur'an (56:10-11) Yusufali's translation]

"Sabiqun (Those who excel): In many Qur'anic verses, those fortunate mu'mins who excel in good deeds, i.e. they excel others on the straight path, are praised highly. Because this path is such that its stages can be traversed only by knowledge and good deeds. Thus today those who are sabiqun (foremost) on the straight path will also be sabiqun tomorrow on the Day of Resurrection and closest to God (56:10-11)." [Source: Rubies & Pearls, p.120]

Action Plan for Presenting the Nazranas
We have an opportunity to present three kinds of nazranas to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam:

  1. Material Nazrana of time, knowledge and financial resources;
  2. Spiritual Nazrana in the form of a pure golden heart which is in a state of constant dhikr; and
  3. Luminous Nazrana in the form of a sound golden heart (qalb-i salim) which is in a state of constant dhikr and enlightenment. Ameen

Let us practise our faith with conviction and start attending Jamat Khana regularly, submitting dasond, saying three Duas on time, practising bandagi because it is a luminous prayer, reciting angelic salwats, performing abundant dhikr, performing volunteer service, balancing din and duniya, and accumulating material, spiritual and luminous nazranas in our personal worlds. Educational resources for these activities are listed under the knowledge bank link in left side menu.

Global Prayer:
Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, grant us, our families, our Jamats, the worldwide Jamat, the Muslim Ummah, and humanity at large, luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) ta'id (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually.

O Mowla make us One global Jamat with One Sound Heart (Qalb-i Salim), bless us with the Golden Noorani and the Golden Jubilee Didars, and empower us to present Material, Spiritual and Luminous Nazranas. Ameen.

Haizinda — Qayampaya
(Our Present Imam is Living and His NOOR is Eternal)

Peace, Light, Barakat, Tayid and a 'Golden Noorani Didar',
