Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 28 :: 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, Monday, June 11, 2018 is the twenty eighth 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 31 days away from Imamat Day 2018.
This post for the auspicious twenty eighth 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 how to become staunch, obedient (farman bardari) mu'mins, and how submit to our Lord NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, the Imam of the time, and the Lord of the world and of all who inhabit it:
|"The (real) believer is one whose words (iqrar wa qawl) are unshakeable and true (haqq), whose thoughts of the heart are true, whose promise, whose love and affection are true. From head to foot that slave of God must be sincere and true (haqq). He must be sweet-worded and mild, his soul (ruh) must be sincere. He must be continually preoccupied with the remembrance of God (dhikr), always remaining in meditation (bandagi) and dhikr and praise of God, lauding and recognising God the All-High (Shinakht-i Haqq ta'ala). His actions must be pious, his behaviour proper. He must carry out the commandments and injunctions of his Lord (Khudawand) and pir. He must keep on his tongue the mention of Five Holy Persons (Panj Tan), mentioning and glorifying God with great affection. He recognizes his Master (Aqa), the Supreme Lord (Sahibu'l-amr), the Imam of the time, follows his path, always remaining obedient and listful (attentive) to him, delivering himself, his affairs, and everything that he possesses to that Lord (Mawla) who is the Imam of the time, and the Lord of the world and of all who inhabit it." (p.7)|
Part 2: Teaching of Pir Shams
In the following two verses from the Garbi, Tame japjo din raat ke, Pir Shams says that if you remember the Lord day and night, your personal world will be illuminated and when you see the Holy Light in your forehead, you will enjoy immortality. It is also clear from this and other verses of Holy Ginans, and teachings of the Holy Imams that the concepts of eternal kingdom (avichal raaj), eternal existence (baqa), amar jaat (eternal kind) are all related to the enlightenment of the personal world:

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:
