The background, overview, schedule, niyat and noble wishes of the 2019 Holy Ramadan Project is presented separately on the fundamental concepts page of this directory. Please go through it as often as you desire.

Ramadan Activities
The motivation for this 30-day project is to increase the intensity of prayers during the month of Holy Ramadan. For this purpose, 30 posts for each auspicious night of Holy Ramadan have been prepared. Each post will consist of four parts:

  1. Enlightenment teachings from the Holy Qu'ran;
  2. Excerpt)s) from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission';
  3. A Dhikr tasbi; and
  4. Angelic salwat

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: An excerpt from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§6] God summons to the creatures has three conditions: one that it be in the tongue of the prophets, the legatees, the imams and the dâ'îs, on all of them be peace; the second that it concern what He created in the world and in their souls as signs and evidence that calls them to the absolute Oneness of God and to paradise (paradise is safe from extinction and the faults of this world, and from tyranny, injustice and alteration); and third that it should be in accord with inspiration, grace and guidance."


(Source: Klemm, V. and Walker, P. E., A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission, p.37)

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
The significance of the four phrases of the Holy Prophet's tasbi are explained in the following hadith:

Ibn Mas'ud reported God's messenger as saying he met Abraham on the night he was taken up to heaven, and he said, "Convey my greeting to your people, Muhammad, and tell them that paradise has good soil and sweet water, that it consists of level, treeless plains, and that its plants are 'Glory be to God' (Subhan Allah); 'Praise be to God' (Al-Hamdu Lillah); 'There is no god but God' (La ilaha illa-llah); and 'God is most great' (Allahu Akbar)'." Tirmidhi transmitted it, saying that is a hasan tradition whose isnad is gharib.


(Reference: Robson, J., Book X. God's Names. Chapter II. The reward for glorifying, praising, declaring God's unity and His greatness. In: Mishkat al Masabih Vol. I (English translation with explanatory notes), 490.)

Let us now recite this prayer with humility, courage and conviction:
