Timeless Gems of Noor Mowlana Murtazâ Ali (a.s.) for the Global Jamat

Gem No. 21: Surrender to the Divine Will and Its Rewards

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad! Many times our wishes do not come true. Instead of becoming disappointed, it is better to do have a good intention, perform a good deed, and also surrender to the Divine Will as described in the following ayat of the Holy Qur'an and the saying of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.):

"Nay, but whosoever surrendereth his purpose to Allah while doing good, his reward is with his Lord; and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve."
(Holy Qur'an (Pickthall) 002.112)

In the following saying, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has defined desirable traits which have to be cultivated within each one of us:

"Surrender and acceptance to the will of God are best companions; wisdom is the noblest heritage; theoretical and practical knowledge are best marks of distinction; deep thinking will present the clearest picture of every problem."
(Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali (Second American edition, 1981), Sayings of Hazrat Ali 4, p. 273)

On the most auspicious occasion of Idd-e-Gaddir, the first Imamat Day of our first beloved Imam, NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.), let us recite a bouquet of salwats and remind ourselves that we are a global Jamat united by the Light of Ali-Zaman.

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

Recited by Noorallah Juma
