(Project Duration: March 21, 2006 to May 15, 2006)
Angelic Salwat Card for Day 9: Why should we obey and submit to the Holy Prophet and the Holy Imams?
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 should we obey and submit to the Holy Prophet and the Holy Imams? The answer to this question is given in the following excerpts from Majlis 10: Submission to the Decision of the Imam by Qazi Noaman [Source: Selections from Qazi Noaman's Kitab-ul-Himma fi Adabi Ataba-el-a'emma or Code of Conduct for the Followers of Imam. pp.64-73]:
"God says (in the Holy Quran), "Obey God, the Prophet and obey your spiritual leaders." (Surah 4, Ayat 59). "I swear by your Lord, they cannot become 'momins' unless they refer their disputes to you and are perfectly satisfied with your decision and they submit to the utmost limit." (Surah 4, Ayat 65).
Submission implies obedience to God externally and internally; and obedience to God is linked with the obedience of the Prophet and to the Imams. Accordingly it is the duty of every 'momin' to submit entirely to the Imams, He should act strictly according to their instructions. He should have implicit faith in them and should give expression to it openly and in secret. It matters little whether he finds their instructions agreeable to him or not, it matters little whether he understands their significance or not. He should persevere in carrying them out and disciplining his mind in this direction. The time is sure to come when he will find agreeable what looks disagreeable to him now, when the significance of what he fails to understand now will ultimately dawn on his mind." (pp.64-65)
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 days.
Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:

May Mowla enrich you with inspired knowledge (ilm-i laduni) through these spiritual and intellectual exercises. Ameen.
