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

Prayer Card No. 27: Yâ Imâmaz-Zamân, Ya Mowlânâ, Anta Quwwati 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:

NOOR Mowlana Murtaza Ali (a.s.) has said:

"The Almighty God has placed His trust in Aale-e-Muhammad (Descendants of Muhammad, may the peace of God be upon them). They are strongholds where His Commandments receive protection and from which they are expounded and interpreted. They are fountain heads of knowledge created by Him, shelters for His teachings, refuges for Heavenly Books, mountain like citadels to defend His religion. Islam in its beginning was weak and helpless, they came to its help and defence. Islam was nervous of the infidels around it, they made it strong and powerful." [Source: Nahjul Balagha: Sermons, letters and saying of Hazrat Ali, Khutba 5, 7-8.]

Our beloved NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) is a fountain of strength and sends his spiritual and luminous taid (help) to all who ask for it. Therefore, we will call upon him using a sentence from our Holy Du'a: "Yâ Imâmaz-Zamân, Yâ Mowlânâ, Anta Quwwati" (O Imam of the time, O our Lord, Thou art my strength).

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Yâ Imâmaz-Zamân, Ya Mowlânâ, Anta Quwwati and Pir-Shâh Tasbis to generate internal strength.

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

Yâ Imâmaz-Zamân, Ya Mowlânâ, Anta Quwwati (1)

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.

Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh (4)
(O Mowla! I implore you as the Pir and the Shah of our time)

Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh, Pir-Shâh (8)
