40-day Project for Invoking Angelic Salwat for the Benefit of the Whole Humanity and All Departed Souls
(Project Duration: March 21, 2006 to May 15, 2006)
Angelic Salwat Card for Day 1: What is Angelic Salwat?
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad! This is the second project for creating sunshine in our hearts and preparing for the celebration of 50 years of glorious Imamat of NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam. Each post has a different question and answer in the knowledge section, and the anchor tasbi for this project is the Holy Salwat.
What is an angelic salwat? The answer can be understood by studying the following diagram:
The salwat originates from the World of Command. Allah says 'Be' and the cycle of salwat gets initiated. The salwat descends from the World of Command into the World of Creation. The angels carry the blessing of the salwat to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s) and his successors. According to the Ismaili Muslim constitution, the successors of the Holy Prophet are the Imams who are his direct descendants through Hazrat Mawlana Ali Amiru-l-Mu'minin ('Alayhi-s-salam) and his daughter Hazrat Bibi Fatimat-az-Zahra, Khatun-i-Jannat ('Alayhi-s-salam). The salwat then reaches the believers.
When the believers recite the salwat with conviction, ardent love for the Holy Prophet his true successors (the Holy Imams), then it (the salwat) is propelled to the World of Command by them (the Holy Prophet and the True Imams). The status of salwat is increased and it then descends as an angelic salwat for the benefit of the whole creation. This includes all Muslims and all human beings. This concise statement clearly explains about the enormous power of the angelic salwat.
Please also note that Allah and His Angels send salwat on true believers only through the Holy Prophet and his true successors, the Holy Imams. This is consistent with the observation that every spiritual favour of God is received only through His treasures, namely the Holy Prophet and his true successor, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.). Therefore, according to the Ismaili Muslim tradition, our NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, the direct descendent of the Holy Prophet and Mowlana Ali (a.s.), is a vital link in this whole process.
Angelic Salwat Dhikr Section:
Each person participating in this project is requested to invoke angelic salwats according to his/her capacity. Let us start by presenting a bouquet of at least 100 salwats or continuous salwat for 3 to 5 minutes to our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam for the fulfillment of our noble wishes.
If 10,000 persons offer 100 salwat per day, we could reach a rate of 1 million salwat per day. This would yield a magnificent nazrana of 40 million salwats by the end of this 40 day project.
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants
Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!
May Mowla enrich you with inspired knowledge (ilm-i laduni) through these spiritual and intellectual exercises. Ameen.
