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 6: How many salwats should one recite?
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.
How many salwats should one recite? The answer to this question is given in (Pir) Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.). The Holy Imam has described methods which can bring sunshine in our hearts and have given guidance of the recitation of salwat as follows:
"The (real) believer is one whose words (iqrar wa qawl) are unshakeable and true (haqq), whose thoughts of the heart are true, whose promise, whose love and affection are true. From head to foot that slave of God must be sincere and true (haqq). He must be sweet-worded and mild, his soul (ruh) must be sincere. He must be continually preoccupied with the remembrance of God (dhikr), always remaining in meditation (bandagi) and dhikr and praise of God, lauding and recognising God the All-High (Shinakht-i Haqq ta'ala). His actions must be pious, his behaviour proper. He must carry out the commandments and injunctions of his Lord (Khudawand) and pir. He must keep on his tongue the mention of Five Holy Persons (Panj Tan), mentioning and glorifying God with great affection. He recognizes his Master (Aqa), the Supreme Lord (Sahibu'l-amr), the Imam of the time, follows his path, always remaining obedient and listful (attentive) to him, delivering himself, his affairs, and everything that he possesses to that Lord (Mawla) who is the Imam of the time, and the Lord of the world and of all who inhabit it." (p.7)
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
