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

Prayer Card No. 12: Yâ Rabbil Âlameen 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 reflect on three wisdoms pertaining to the word 'âlameen' (Worlds), which appears in Surah Faatihah, Ayat number 1 (1:1):

"It is related from Imam Jafar as-Sadiq that, by âlameen, are meant only human beings, because each one of them is an independent world (Qamus, p.344)" [Source: Tawil No. 562, A Thousand Wisdoms]

"Each of the personal worlds, i.e. each human being, is a world in which the entire external world is going to be enfolded. The word "âlameen" is mentioned seventy-three times in the Qur'an." [Source: Tawil No. 563, A Thousand Wisdoms]

"Since every individual is a world, therefore the word "âlameen" is used for human beings, and all attributive names of God are (mainly) related to them." [Source: Tawil No. 564, A Thousand Wisdoms]

Now let us compare the status of the personal worlds of individuals to that of the Holy Imam:

"Reflect duly and carefully upon this wisdom-filled saying of Mawlâ Ali: "And you think that you are a tiny body, while the great universe is enfolded in you".

The above-mentioned state of human beings is in two ways: potentially and actually. Potentially, the external world is enfolded in every individual. Actually, it is the personal world of the manifest Imam in which God has encompassed the great world actually, and as such, no subtle thing, such as the Throne, the Pedestal, the Pen, or the Tablet, is excluded from it. In short, the great world is centred and confined within the manifest Imam consummately (perfectly) and completely." [Source: Tawil No. 109, A Thousand Wisdoms]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Rabbil Âlameen and Pir-Shâh tasbis to appreciate that: (1) the great external universe is going to be enfolded in each one of us; and (2) we also have the potential of actualizing the great universe within ourselves, i.e., all the treasures of paradise which is manifest in our NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam (please recite the Holy Salwat), can also be actualized 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.
