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

Prayer Card No. 21: Yâ Dhul-Jalâli-wal-Ikrâm 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)

Let us reflect on the 85th beautiful Divine name:

085 Dhul-Jalaali-wal-Ikram The Possessor of Majesty and Reverence He who is capable of bestowing Generosity and Honor upon His creatures. Yaa-Dhul-Jaalali-wal-Ikram

The Divine Name 'Dhul-Jalâli-wal-Ikrâm' is a great name and has been used in the context of the Face of God in Surah Rahmaan (55:26-28):

Kullu man 'alay-haa faan:
Wa yabqaa Wajhu Rabbika Dhul-Jalâli-wal-Ikrâm
Fabi-'ayyi 'aalaaa-'q Rabikumaa tukazzibaan?
All that is on earth will perish: (55:26)
But will abide (forever) the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour. (55:27)
Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny? (55:28)

Now let us reflect on the tawil of 'Wajh Allah' (Face of Allah):

"According to the verse (48:10), if it is true that the hand of God can be represented, then it is also true that His face can be represented, as Mawlâ Ali has said: "I am the face of God in the heavens and the earth", as is said in verse (28:88): "Everything is perishable except His face." (Kawkub, p. 206). The face of Allah, His Vision and His recognition, all these attributes are the attributes of the exalted Imam." [Source: A Thousand Wisdoms. Tawil No. 917]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Dhul-Jalâli-wal-Ikrâm and Pir-Shâh tasbis to grasp the glory of the Face of the Lord.

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.
