  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:

"[§26] God-fearing piety is a term combining knowledge and action in conformity with doctrine, upholding the stipulations of the Qur'an, doing what God has commanded, prohibiting what He has forbidden; and that cannot happen without knowledge. A person without sound knowledge is not able to keep God free of association and anthropomorphism. Someone who associates a thing with God or makes comparisons of Him, and yet performs all the acts of devotion, is not pious and nobody should learn from him. God-fearing piety is the sum of all virtues and the prohibition of all the vices. For that reason God, glorious is His name, said: 'The most noble of you in the sight of God is the most-fearing of you';28 and He said: 'The best provisions is God-fearing piety';29 and He said: 'The wearing of God-fearing piety, that is best';30 and He said: 'Fear God, O you men of understanding';31 and He said also: 'Whoever fears God, He will make for him a way out.'"32
