Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 10 :: Knowledge & Prayers for Advancement

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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Thursday, May 24, 2018 is the tenth night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. The background, overview, niyat and noble wishes of the 2018 Holy Ramadan Project is presented in the project details page. The schedule, web page links and PDF posts are presented on the index page of the directory.

This project has daily posts because we have to keep our souls charged after the mulaqats with Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The states of our spiritual hearts have changed so Holy Ramadan is the right time to assimilate deep spiritual knowledge and accelerate our upward journey. We all look forward to Imamat Day 2018 while members of our global jamat are also preparing for the upcoming Darbars in Paris, London and Lisbon.

We are only seven weeks away from the celebration of Imamat Day 2018. The following resources are now available to all the members of the global Jamat:

This post for the auspicious tenth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. A gem of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II;
  2. Two verses from the beautiful ginan of Sayyada Imambegum;
  3. Luminous dhikr of Yâ Wali, Yâ Karim;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project.

Part 1: Teaching of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.)
In Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us about the time of real joy and happiness:

"O, believers, O, sincere ones! Smile only then when you are saved from the calamities and perils, when you are out of the whirlpool and on dry land, when you are safely back from the journey. It means, then, that joy will be attained when you arrive at the recognition of the Imam of the time, becoming his faithful and obedient slaves, and not being even for a moment disobedient or forgetful of him. You will then become enlightened by his recognition, – and it is this time which will be appropriate for [real] joy and merriment." (p.31)

Part 2: Teaching of Sayyada Imambegum
In the following verses of ginan, Hardam karo abhiyaas, Sayyada Imambegum advises us to be engaged in seeking divine knowledge and enlightening our soul by advancing ourselves to the state of 'Ajampiya jaamp', i.e., to a state where our 'bol' or the 'name of Lord' speaks by itself. This state can also be described as continuous silent remembrance within oneself.

Eji Brahm ginan maa(n)he hardam rahejo ji
Karjo aapno abhiyaas

O Brother Always remain engrossed in the divine knowledge
and contemplate on yourself.

Eji Ajampiya jaamp bhai jis ghat bhitar ji
Sohi ghat hoyshe ujaash
Karine dekho ji
 
O Brother In the heart which has continuous silent remembrance
(unpronounced zikr), that heart will be enlightened.
