  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:

"[§29] Governance of the household is the governing by a man of his own family and retainers, controlling them, teaching and educating them, instilling virtue in them and preventing vice, rewarding those who are good, punishing those who are bad. As God says: 'O you who believe, guard yourselves and your family from the fire,;34 and the Prophet has said: 'A man continues to have the people of his house inherit knowledge and proper comportment until he has entered them all into paradise, losing of them neither the young or the old, the servant or the protégé'. It is as God says: 'Command your family to pray and persevere with them';35 and He said: 'And he used to command his family to pray and pay the alms tax and he was approved in the sight of his Lord.'36 He who succeeds in governing himself and his family is fit to have charge of governing the rest of the people in matters of faith, and he who cannot govern himself and his family is not fit to be a dâ'î."

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
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:

  1. Ya-Haakim from the name Al-Haakim (The Wise): He who has wisdom in all orders and actions.

  2. Ya-Wakil from the name Al-Wakil (The Trustee): He who provides a solution for every problem in the best manner.

  3. Ya-Fattah from the name Al-Fattah (The Decider): He who opens the solution to all problems and eliminates obstacles.

  4. Ya-Salaam from the name As-Salaam (The Source of Peace): He who frees His Servants from all danger and obstruction.

For today's session, let us seek wisdom, solution to problems, success and peace through this prayer:
