2017-2018 — The Diamond Jubilee Years for Higher Spiritual Enlightenment
Diamond Jubilee Spark :: Gain Safety by Obeying the Imam of the Time
Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 15 :: 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, Tuesday, May 29, 2018 is the fifteenth 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.
This post for the auspicious fifteenth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:
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 to gain safety by obeying the Imam of the time:
|"O, believers, O, pious ones! Now is the time when you should strengthen religion (din), by helping each other, by trying to gain knowledge, by advancing the religious cause, and striving to make your faith complete. Gain safety by obeying the Imam of the time and become completely obedient to his orders. Act and do everything piously, — a pious act is that which is carried out in obedience to the word of the Imam. Do unhesitatingly what you are told by the blessed word of the Imam, — then you will attain (real) salvation (rastagaari). Then follow your Pir and Prophet, (by this) following your God. Follow the Imam of your time strictly, so that he may take you under his protection, helping you, granting you victory and relief. Follow your Pir and regard your association with him as a great boon. Listen to his words and act according to them, because they are the words of the Imam, and if you act according to them, they will be like medicine to you. And obedience to the Imam, attention to his word, and that of the guiding Pir (Pir-i murshid) together with his instruction (taa'lim), followed by action in accord with these, will bring about the healing of spiritual ailments (maradhaa-i batiniyyat), and lead to soundness and clarity of the heart. And the wisdom of the teachers makes the mirror of heart clean and shining." (p.17)|
Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin
In the following verse from Moti Venti, Pir Hasan Kabirdin pleads for the spiritual union of the individual soul with the Universal Soul:

|0 Lord,||How long shall I remain alone?
Every day 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.

Part 3: Dhikr Section:
At present, all human beings are going through a difficult time and are seeking solutions. After studying the list of 99 Divine names, I found the following four which can give solace to our souls and guidance to our intellects to understand the firmans of our Holy Imams:
Let us now recite this prayer with humility, courage and conviction for global peace and sustainable development externally and for mushkil aasan and peace internally within our own souls:
