Angelic Salwat Card for Day 16: What is the relationship between enlightenment, lawful consumption and firm faith?

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.

Knowledge Section:

What is the relationship between enlightenment, lawful consumption and firm faith? The answer to this question can be found from a verse of the Holy Qur'an and from NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali's (a.s.) Kalâmê Mowlâ:

"God says (in the Holy Quran): "God commands you to pay back the 'amanat' to their owners" (Surah 4, Ayat 58). In order to create the Light of NOOR Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) within oneself, it is necessary to first submit dasond because it is an 'amanat' of God. Now let us study the tight connection between enlightenment, lawful consumption and firm faith, and the conseqences of unlawful consumption, as described in verse 129 of Kalâmê Mowlâ:

Dilkee roshani hay halâl khanêsê,
chêto bhâi karo âhâr halâl
uskâ iman dil donu(n) andhêrâ,
jo koee khâvê harâm mâl

The enlightenment of the heart comes from lawful consumption,
therefore brothers, be heedful and consume what is lawful.
The Imaan (Faith) and heart is blinded
of the one who consumes unlawful property.

Ees ghat mindarmê (n) diva dil hay,
jo huva andhêrâ to imanki khot
huee andhêri nagri koi keesê na sujê,
pânch chor milkar luntê chotâ chot .....129

In this body the Divine Lamp is the heart.
If this lamp is extinguished, your faith (Imaan) will be lost.
When the bodily city is darkened thus, nothing worthwhile can happen
and the five thieves i.e., lust, anger, greed, pride and temptation
will come and meet from all directions and loot away everything worthwhile. .....129


 

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.

Target:
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:
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!

Global Prayer:

Follow these links to read an article or a poem on salwat, or hear the recitation of Ayatul Kursi and Salwat.

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