Spark No. 12 :: The Power of Ism-i Azam (Supreme Name)
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad! Idd-e-Milad un Nabi Mubarak! In preparation for the celebration of the birthday commemoration of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.), I would like to draw upon three of his great spiritual and luminous experiences:
Ya Ali Madad! We have already learned about the silence of the heart of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s) [spark no.7], the expansion of his heart [spark no.10], and his experience of monoreality [spark no.11]. How was our Holy Prophet able to do all this? The answer is through the practice of Ism-i Azam (Bol). Let us study this topic in more detail:
In his message to students in Bombay, NOOR Mowlana Shah Sultan Muhammad Shah Al-Husayni (a.s.) explained about the fundamental principle of our Holy faith:
|" ... While the material conditions of life change, the spiritual conditions which are not only limited to this life but go beyond, are based on one fundamental principle, namely search for enlightenment by the right spiritual contact with the light of your holy faith."[Source: Precious Pearls. No. 43]|
The ism-i azam (bol) is in its potential form when it is bestowed to a murid by the Holy Imam. When the murid follows all the practices of the faith and practices bandagi, i.e., the luminious prayer with a luminous word at a luminous time in the small watches of the night, the ism-i azam becomes actualized. The enlightened murid witnesses that the ism-i azam (bol) has become the light of Holy Imam in his/her forehead. A murid who achieves this loft status becomes a real spiritual and luminous child of the Holy Imam! Al-Hamdulillah, all this is possible because it is in the treasury of our Holy Imam, Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam (a.s.)!
Golden Noorani and Golden Jubilee Didar Preparations:
In preparation for Golden Noorani and Golden Jubilee Didars, let us practise our faith with conviction by 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.
Dhikr Tasbis for Each Day of the Week:
Please follow these links for dhikr tasbis for each day. These pages contain the text, meaning and mp3 sound tracks. Dhikr tasbis are a magnificient way to reach the stage of constant remembrance and prepare for a spiritual and luminious nazrana in our personal worlds.

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.
