We implement the concept expressed in the verse of Anant Akadho by acting upon the statments made in the third part of our Holy Dua:

"There is no hero except 'Aly, there is no sword except (his sword) 'Zulfiqar'. Seek at the time of difficulties, the help of your Lord, the present living Imam, Shah Karim al-Husayni."

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time. Ameen.

"After death Divine justice will take into consideration the faith, the prayers, and the deeds of man. For the chosen, there is eternal life and the spiritual felicity of Divine vision. For the condemned, there is hell where they will be consumed with regret for not having known how to merit the grace and the blessing of Divine mercy." Aga Khan III in Memoirs of the Aga Khan, p.177.

Ya Ali Madad! The role of prophets, Imams, Pirs and pious souls is to bring salvation to countless souls. An example of this is given in Verse 423 of Anant Akhado. It is important to note that the practice of Ism Azam (recitation of the Great Names or Attributes of Allah) is a common thread for all who walk on the Right Path.

Âshâji Kamalâpati bhagat târyâ
kidhâ bhagatonâ kâmji
avtârê avtârê sâmiji âvyâ
rakhisarnê man bhâvya
Hari ana(n)t
 
Oh Lord The Lord gave salvation to the pious Kamalapati and performed (wonderous) works for the pious momins.
The Lord has taken manifestations upon manifestations and won the hearts of devotees.

It is mentioned in the Qur'anic story of Hazrat Adam in verse (2:31): "And He (God) taught all (His great) names to Adam." Through the sacred dhikr of the Supreme Names, Hazrat Adam was shown spiritual miracles associated with each name. After he (Adam) acquired this knowledge, the angels bowed to him. Therefore, spiritual elevation (ruhaniyat) and vision of luminosity (nuraniyat) are directly linked to the practice of Ism-i Azam. This is a fundamental concept for the past, the present and the future.

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Ya Ali Madad! Pir Hasan Kabirdin advises us to live carefully during the reign of the tenth avtar (Verse 437 of Anant Akhado). The tenth avtar corresponds to Hazrat Aly, the Imamat and the present living Imam, NOOR Mowlana Hazir Imam.

Âshâji dasmê avtârê evâ thainê châlo
chhêli kâyâ kidhiji
chhêllâ jiv sâmi ugâri lio
karo ana(n)t vadhâiyu(n)

Oh Lord During the time of the Tenth Manifestation, live in such a manner as if this was your last created body (birth).
Oh Lord save the final souls and bless the unlimited souls with happiness (of the soul and the intellect).
Hari You are eternal; 437

It is mentioned in the Qur'anic story of Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s.) in verse (2:124): "And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands (Wa-ithi ibtala ibraheema rabbuhu bikalimatin), which he fulfilled: He (God) said: "I will make thee an Imam to the Nations." He pleaded: "And also (Imams) from my offspring!" He (God) answered: "But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers."

Besides the practice of the sacred dhikr of the Supreme Names, Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s.) was asked to recite the Perfect Words (Kalimati-Tamat). After he fulfilled this, he was elevated from a Prophet to an Imam. His offspring, through his son Hazrat Ismail (a.s.), leads us to NOOR Mowlana Hazir Imam.

Spiritual elevation (ruhaniyat) and vision of luminosity (nuraniyat) are directly linked to the practice of Ism-i Azam (Supreme Name) as well as Kalimati-Tamat (Perfect Words). The Prophets were graced with this opportunity.

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Ya Ali Madad! The relationships between the Imam, the Pir and the Murid are linked through ginanic knowledge and bandagi. The Ibadat (bandagi) with Ism-e-Azam is a fundamental esoteric practice which links the Murid to the Pir and the Imam (Verse 445 of Anant Akhado).

Âshâji nar sonâ gur rupâ
hirâ rakhisar jânoji
moti lâl ginân pichhâno
to ja(m)po pirshâhno jâ(m)p
Hari ana(n)t
 
Oh Lord The Husband (Imam) is compared to gold, the Guide (Peer) to silver and the devotee to diamond.
Know the ginans (divine knowledge) as pearls and rubies.
Recite (silently) the (sacred) name of Pir Shah
(i.e., Ism-e-Azam).
Hari You are eternal; 445

The Ism-e Azam is in two forms: as a word and as a person. For example, in Ayatul Kursi (The Verse of the Throne, 2:225), the first sentence reads: 'God! There is no god but He, the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal'. The great names, in the form of words, are 'al-hayyu'l-qayyum'. However, these attributes also apply to a person. The person is the True guide, i.e., the Holy Prophet in the period of Prophethood amd the Imam in the time of Imamat. It is important to understand that the Holy Imam is a living Ism-e Azam (Supreme Name of Allah) and the bearer of NOOR. Therefore, the Imam is living and his Light (NOOR) is eternal. Both aspects of Ism-e Azam have to be understood simultaneously.

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Ya Ali Madad! Divine remembrance (zikr) amd bandagi with the luminous word (ism-e azam) leads a murid to the abode of the Imam and the Pir (Verse 456 of Anant Akhado).

Âshâji mârag chokho mêlâ kijê
t suvâtê chaloji
suri nar kêro jâp karsho
to poho(n)cho gurnarnê thâm
Hari ana(n)t
 
Oh Lord Follow the Perfect Path with happiness.
Be on the True Path (Sirat-al-Mustaqeem)
Always be in remembrance of the Lord
(through zikr and bandagi).
Only then you will reach the abode of Shah and Pir

"The day we no longer know how, nor have the time nor the faith to bow in prayer to Allah because the human soul that He has told us is eternal is no longer of sufficient importance to us to be worthy of an hour of our daily working, profit-seeking time, will be a sunless day of despair." Excerpt from Mowlana Hazir Imam's Convocation address at Peshawar University, Pakistan, on November 30, 1967.

The above speech was made to a general audience. However, the Holy Imam has prescribed an hour of extra prayers for the elevation of our soul in the small watches of the night. He has given us the method, prescribed the time, bestowed the luminous word of the esoteric faith, and has explained that the soul is eternal. The True Guide wants us to reach the Abode of Peace (Daras-Salaam) as described in Verse 456 of Anant Akhado.

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Ya Ali Madad! Please reflect on the verse 474 of Anant Akhado and the excerpt of Mowlana Hazir Imam's address at the Seerat Conference. It is all a matter of choices, priorities and time management.

Âshâji rakhisar jêvâ thainê châlo
to poho(n)cho sarag duârji
tê jêvi karani karsho
to po(n)chsho sarag duâr

Oh Lord Conduct yourselves by becoming like true devotees
in order to reach the doorstep to heaven.
Whatever rewarding deeds you perform and in whatever form will reach the doorstep to heaven

"As the demands on his time increase, every Muslim will find it more difficult to seek for himself the answer to the fundamental question of how he should live his life for it to be truly Muslim. It is men such as you who will have to be practical and realistic in the world of today and tomorrow. Rather than let force of circumstance impose upon us through our default in not having suitably prepared ourselves for the future, ways of life which are not, or should not be ours, we must ourselves design the path we should tread." Excerpt from Mowlana Hazir Imam's address to the Seerat Conference, Karachi, Pakistan, on March 12th, 1976.

Each one of us has to set priorities. In verse 474 of Anant Akhado, Pir Hasan Kabirdin implores us to become true devotees of the Holy Imam and practice our faith with conviction and warns us that we will be judged by our deeds. The Holy Imam brought the issue of time management and priorities in 1976. At the present, life is more hectic and the challenge of practising bandagi is enormous. However, the time invested in bandagi has material as well as spiritual benefits. It is a key to our survival and growth!

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Faithful murids will inherit light as described in the following verses of the Holy Quran:

On the day when thou (Muhammad) wilt see the believers, men and women, their light shining forth before them and on their right hands, (and wilt hear it said unto them): Glad news for you this day: Gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein ye are immortal. That is the supreme triumph. (Holy Quran 57:12; Pickthall's translation)
 
On the day when the hypocritical men and the hypocritical women will say unto those who believe: Look on us that we may borrow from your light! it will be said: Go back and seek for light! Then there will separate them a wall wherein is a gate, the inner side whereof containeth mercy, while the outer side thereof is toward the doom. (Holy Quran 57:13; Pickthall's translation)
 
And those who believe in Allah and His messengers, they are the loyal, and the martyrs are with their Lord; they have their reward and their light; while as for those who disbelieve and deny Our revelations, they are owners of hell-fire. (Holy Quran 57:19; Pickthall's translation)

Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire. (Holy Quran 3:191; Yusufali's translation)
 
God will say: "This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are gardens, with rivers flowing beneath, - their eternal Home: God well-pleased with them, and they with God: That is the great salvation, (the fulfilment of all desires). (Holy Quran 5:122; Yusufali's translation)

May the barakat of the recitation of Anant Akhado inspire you to regularly practice Ibadat (bandagi) at the prescribed time (noorani waqt). Ameen.

Peace, barakat and taid,
