Prayer Card No. 6: Yâ Sabuur 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:

The 99th Name of Allah is As-Sabuur which means The Extensively Enduring One. Allah tolerates the misdeeds of His creatures, however grave and recurring they be. He is Patient. During spiritual trials, we also have to demonstrate patience and became a 'sabir', i.e., one who is patient.

"The 'Sabirs' are steady people. They put up will all sorts of hardships for the sake of the Imams. They rush to the Imams and are ever-ready to carry out their orders. If they are appointed to any office they do the job willingly. They are devoted to God and they suffer with patience and firmness what befalls their lot. They abide by the laws of God. They fight for God and they establish His laws on earth. By the virtue of this they win the reward of God. They are the happiest people on earth and their end is the best."
[Source: Selections from Qazi No'man's Code of Conduct for the followers of Imam: Excerpt from Majlis 8: To Thank the Imam in Weal or Woe]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Sabuur and Pir-Shâh Tasbis in order to cultivate the attribute of patience within ourselves.

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

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.
