Knowledge Section:

The following three aya of the Holy Qur'an (2:155-157) describe the cyclic nature of difficulty and relief from difficulty through the use of the tasbi " 'Innaa lillaahi wa- 'innaaa 'ilayhi raaji-'uunn (Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning)":

"And surely We shall try you with something of fear and hunger, and loss of wealth and lives and crops; but give glad tidings to the steadfast, Who say, when a misfortune striketh them: Lo! we are Allah's and lo! unto Him we are returning. Such are they on whom are blessings from their Lord, and mercy. Such are the rightly guided." [Source: Holy Qur'an (2:155-157)]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of 'Innaa lillaahi wa- 'innaaa 'ilayhi raaji-'uunn and Pir-Shâh Tasbis to overcome spiritual trials such fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and crops, and others which are bound to come into our lives.

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.
