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 21: Why is it necessary to defeat nafs-i ammârâ?
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 is it necessary to defeat nafs-i ammâra? This has been explained by the Holy Prophet (s.a.s) as follows:
"The great Lord of Lords, Mawlâ 'Ali,—upon whom be the blessings of God, the King, the All High!—said that once the Prophet (blessings of God be upon him) send a party of his companions on a military expedition. On their return, when they came before his presence, he greeted them as men who had participated in a jihâd-i asghar, or the smaller war in the cause of religion, and said they still has to take up the jihâd-i akbar, the greater war. Whereupon they inquired from the Apostle of God, asking: "What is jihâd-i akbar?" And he replied that the most glorious war is that which one wages against his own vile instincts (nafs-i ammâra). This is, indeed, the truth,—blessings of God be upon him who said this!" (Source: True Meaning of Religion, pp. 1-2)
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:
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.
