(Project Duration: March 21, 2006 to May 15, 2006)
Angelic Salwat Card for Day 40: What is the position of aale-e-Muhammad (Descendants of Muhammad, may the peace of Allah be upon them)?
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.
What is the position of aale-e-Muhammad (Descendants of Muhammad, may the peace of Allah be upon them)? Let us reflect on the following extracts from three Khutba of Hazrat Ali (a.s.) to clearly understand the position of aale-e-Muhammad (Descendants of Muhammad, may the peace of Allah be upon them):
"The Almighty God has placed His trust in Aale-e-Muhammad (Descendants of Muhammad, may the peace of God be upon them). They are strongholds where His Commandments receive protection and from which they are expounded and interpreted. They are fountain heads of knowledge created by Him, shelters for His teachings, refuges for Heavenly Books, mountain like citadels to defend His religion. Islam in its beginning was weak and helpless, they came to its help and defense. Islam was nervous of the infidels around it, they made it strong and powerful." (Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali, Khutba 5, 7-8)
"I swear by the Lord that I know fully well all the messages of God that the Holy Prophet (may the peace of God be upon him and his descendants) has received, the ways of fulfillment of promises made by God and of all the knowledge that science or philosophy could disclose.
We, the progeny of the Holy Prophet (may the peace of God be upon him and his descendants), are the doors through which real wisdom and true knowledge will reach mankind: we are lights of religion." (Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali, Khutba 123, 91)
"Remember that descendants of the Holy Prophet (S.A.S.) are stars in the Heaven, if one sets the other will rise to illumine your path; the Merciful Lord has thus completed His Blessings amongst you." (Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali, Khutba 103, 72-73).
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.
