Volume 2: 40 gems from Anant Akhado and 9 gems from Anant Naa Nav Chhuga
(Evening Project: October 26 to December 13, 2003)

Postings for Days 1 to 10

Date: Oct. 26, 2003
Subject: Anant Akhado Verses, Ramadhan Card, and Divine Names for Day 1

Ya Ali Madad! The Holy Ginans are a rich heritage of Shia Imami Nizari Ismaili Muslims. The word ginan is derived from the jnana, a Sanskrit word generally defined to mean contemplative or meditative knowledge. The ginans were written in verse form and recorded in several Indian languages and constitute a markedly Nizari (after Imam Nizar) and mystical (esoteric) vision of Islam. The ginans are also an esoteric interpretation of the Holy Quran, and are meant to be sung and recited with a melody.

The recitation of 500 verses of Anant Akhado over 40-days and 90 verses of Anant Naa Nav Chhuga over 9 days started this evening, Chandraat, October 26, and will end on Salgirah Khushiyali, December 13, 2003, inshallah. This 49-day project will include the whole of month of Ramadhan. On this first evening of Holy Ramadhan, the first 12 verses were recited in our Jamatkhanas. A sample verse and its literal transliteration is presented below.

Âshâji

jugpati jugnâth Sri Islâm Shâh
ham man têrê umâyoji
kâyam svâmi ha(n)sâjinâ râjâ
ja(m)pudipmê shâh âvo...

hari ana(n)t ana(n)t
hari anatêjo svâmi shâh
anatê jo a(n)t tuhi jânê ji

eknê mârê shâh eknê târê
eknê hari var âlê

Hari ana(n)t 1
 

Oh Lord

Shri Islam Shah, the Lord and the Master of the age
My mind (and heart) supplicates to you
You are the eternal Lord and the King of the soul
Come to the Indian subcontinent (our home, hearts)

Haree You are eternal and unlimited, Haree You are the
Lord of unlimited souls or eternity
You are the only Knower of the limits of the unlimited

To one He punishes, to the other He liberates
And He brings another under the protection of the Lord
(makes him/her a better momin or true believer)

Hari You are eternal; 1

40-day Anant Akhado recitation status (Oct. 26 - Dec. 4, 2003): 2.5% completed

In addition to the ginan recitation, I am also launching an accompanying project to create awareness of the 99 Beautiful Names of Allah. Each Divine name has its own luminosity, power, blessing and ta'id (spiritual help) for believers.

For the first night and the first day of Holy Ramadhan, the names are Ar-Rahmaan (The Beneficent) and Ar-Rahim (The Merciful). Please follow the following hyperlinks to recite these names 33 times in a tasbi format.

We have now learned the following tasbis:

Yaa Rahmaan, Yaa Rahim

Finally, follow this hyperlink to draw inspiration from a beautiful graphic inviting the month of Ramadhan and a poem by Rumi (translated by A. J. Arberry) about Ramadhan (source: www.amana.org).

May the recitation of Anant Akhado and the remembrance of the Divine Names bring light and barakat into the physical, spiritual (ruhani) and intellectual (noorani) dimensions of your personal world! Ameen.

Peace, barakat, light and taid,
Noorallah

Subject: Anant Akhado Verses and Divine Names for Day 5

Ya Ali Madad! Today is the fourth fast of Holy Ramadhan. On the fifth night of Holy Ramadhan, we will be reciting verses 51 to 62 of Anant Akhado. The hyperlink given below will lead you to all the verses and their literal meaning for this evening's recitation. Also, I am highlighting the 9th and the 10th Divine name in this posting.

The gist of verse 51 is: When the Holy Imam, Sri Islam Shah, placed the turban on the head of Pir Hasan Kabirdin, he was given a spiritual vision (ruhaniyat) and an intellectual understanding (nooraniyat) of the heavens, the earth and the underground. There is mention of seeing small and large ants in the third line of this verse. In Arabic, the word 'Dharr' is the name of an extremely tiny red ant. During this great resurrection of the Holy Pir, he saw Alam-i Dharr (The world of spiritual particles), i.e., he saw the whole creation from the prespective of Soul and Light (Noor), the highest form of intellect. This vision is the hallmark of this great Pir who always supplicates for the salvation of countless millions of souls. For example, the verse 219 which begins with the verse "hinâ khinâ sarvê jiv tamârâ".

Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.) has defined Alam-Dharr as the place of our origin and has exhorted us to return the soul to its original place in one of his Baitul Khyal firmans.

 Âshâji

 sarâg marat paiyâraj sarvê
sirba(n)dh huva sir bhâriji
kidi makodi sarvê kuch âviyâ
târê bhâr huvâ sir bhâri

Hari ana(n)t 51

 Oh Lord

 The weight of the heavens, earth and the underground
made the Turban heavy on the head
Even the (souls of the) small and large ants were present (on the turban)
as a result the weight became heavy on the head
Hari You are eternal; 51
