(Project Duration: March 21, 2006 to May 15, 2006)
Angelic Salwat Card for Day 4: Why do we love the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and his close relations and their descendants?
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.
Why do we love the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.s.) and his close relations and their descendants? This has been explained very nicely in the following excerpt from Lecture 12, The Wilayat of Ali, from the book titled 'Life and Lectures of the Grand Missionary Al-Muayyad-Fid-Din Al-Shirazi' (p.101):
"It must be bourne in mind that after the death of the Prophet the belief in the walayat of the Imam from his progeny is as important a part of our religion as the belief in the wilayat of the Prophet in his life time. This is supported by the Tradition according to which the Prophet is reported to have said at 'Ghadeer Khum', "Am I not more precious to you than your own selves?" This is an echo of the Quranic verse which says, "The Prophet is more dear to the 'Momins' than their own selves to them." It is said, than in response to this question of the Prophet, when the 'Momins' said "Yes, you are dearer to us than our own selves", the Prophet said, "O God, be witness to their admission". After this he said, "Ali is master of one who acknowledges me as his master. O God love those who love Ali. Help those who help Ali. Desert those who desert Ali. Let the truth accompany Ali wherever he goes." "
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
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
