In the beginning, You were Unseen (Niranjan),
Attributeless (Nargun) and Formless (Arup).
0 Master, from Thee alone is my origin.
By taking a physical form, I have been separated from Thee.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

Part 2: Saying of NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.)
Allah teaches us about our origin through the following Qur'anic Ayat "'Innaa lillaahi wa- 'innaaa 'ilayhi raaji-'uunn" (Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning) (Surah 2, Ayat 156)1. This verse also affirms that we are Allah's creations and to Him is our return as described by NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.)2:
"Hazrat heard somebody repeating the passage of the Holy Quran "We belong to God and our return is towards Him", Hazrat said, "How true it is. Our saying that we belong to God indicates we accept Him as our Master, Owner and Lord. And when we say our return is towards God indicates that we accept our mortality.""

The lit candle represents the Light of Imamat. Let us actualize this Light into our spiritual hearts, heads, & consciences so that we may also be able to submit spiritual & luminous nazranas in the Diamond Jubilee.
The goal of this website is to provide resources for actualizing the Light of Imamat in one's spiritual heart, head, sense and conscience. This will enable each murid to also present spiritual and luminous nazranas as described below to Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam in the Diamond Jubilee.
A Spiritual Nazrana is in the form of a pure spiritual heart which is in a state of constant dhikr.
A Luminous Nazrana is in the form of a sound heart (qalb-i salim) which is in a state of constant dhikr & enlightenment.

NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has said:
"Remember that the 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."
NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) Hazar Imam's prayer:
"And I pray that you may live in peace and with spiritual enlightenment to guide you."
