40 Luminous Prayer Cards to Expand the Spiritual Heart and Create Inner Peace

Prayer Card No. 3: Yâ Hayyul, Yâ Qayyum and Pir-Shâh Tasbis

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

Ya Ali Madad. Let us first declare our noble intentions which are listed below. You may add your own list after this. Then we will say the prayer for the day and the anchor prayer.

Ya NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being of the whole NOORANI Family
  2. Mushkil Asaan for the global Jamat
  3. Material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat
  4. Salvation of all departed souls
  5. Peace for the whole humanity
  6. (Add your personal list here, if you wish)

Knowledge Section:

Let us refer to ta'wil of the word 'Ism a'zam (Supreme Name of God):

"Imam Jafar as-Sâdiq has said: "Allah has concealed one name, i.e., the supreme Name and He has 360 names." (Lughât, Sin, p. 175). The supreme Name or the great secret is in two forms: as a word and as a person. As a word, it is "al-hayy'l-qayyûm (the Everling, the Everlasting) (2:255); 3:2) and as a person it is the True Guide, i.e., the Prophet and Imam of the time (See Wajh, p. 124-29)." [Source: Tawil 64: A Thousand Wisdoms]

'Allahu laaa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huu 'Al-Hayyul-Qayyuum (Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal) is the first sentence of Ayatul Kursi, the most important ayat of the Holy Qur'an 2:255). From Ismaili point of view, we say that the beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam is living and his Noor is eternal. Therefore, today we will implore him with this most powerful prayer.

Now let us use a bouquet of Yâ Hayyul, Yâ Qayyum and Pir-Shâh Tasbis for today's session.

Noor Mowlana Aga Ali Shah Maa Baap has said that if a person says 40 beads of Pir-Shâh and bestows the benefit to the whole Jamat, then He will reward him/her the benefit of building a Darkhana. Pir refers to the Light of the Holy Prophet and Shah refers to the Light of Hazrat Ali. At present, NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam holds the rank of Shah and Pir. Therefore, this tasbi is equivalent to Yâ Muhammad, Yâ Ali.
