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

Prayer Card No. 33: Haqq, Haqq, Hû, Haqq 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)

The 51st beautiful name of Allah is Al-Haqq:

051 Al-Haqq The Embodiment of Truth He whose existence has no change, and it is All-Truth. Yaa-Haqq

In Arabic, the word 'Huwa' or 'Hu' means 'He'. In the Holy Qur'an, there are numerous places where the word 'He' is used as pronoun for Allah. Consider the following sentence: "Laaa 'ilaaha 'illaa Huwal-'Aziizul-Hakiim" (There is no god but He, the Exalted in Might, the Wise) (3:6). Therefore, we can call on Allah by using expressions such as Allah Hû and Yâ Hû. The expression Hû can also be combined with other words.

The attributes of the eternal light of Hazrat Ali are given in the ginan 'Haq tu, Pak tu' composed by Pir Shams:

Hak tu(n) pak tu(n) badshah
Maherban bhi Ali tu(n)hi tu(n) .....1

You are the eternal truth, and You are the holiest divine being.
To You belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth.
Most gracious also are You, O Ali, You and none else but You .....1

The above concepts have been combined to yield a soul nourishing zikr: Haqq, Haqq, Hû, Haqq. This zikr can also be done while walking, strolling or running. The rhythm can be established by reciting the sequence twice, e.g.

Haqq, Haqq, Hû, Haqq + Haqq, Haqq, Hû, Haqq

It is possible defeat the animal soul (nafs-i amara) if you imagine that you are trampling on it with this dhikr. The combination of dhikr and physical movement can also lead to improvement to physical and spiritual health. However, in order to reap the benefits, this dhikr has to be done over a long period of time with attention, harmony, humility, continuity, strenuous hard work and Divine love. [Source: Qur'anic Healing, 140]

For today's session, let us use a bouquet of Haqq, Haqq, Hû, Haqq and Pir-Shâh Tasbis to call on the Eternal Light of Ali, The Truth and the Only One.

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.

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

May your noble intentions be fulfilled through the barakat and light of these prayers. Ameen.
