Prayer Card No. 40: Comprehensive Du'a and Pir-Shâh Tasbi

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:

On this 40th day of the Prayers card project, let us reflect on the importance of 'Araba'in' which is translated as forty, chillah, i'tikâf:

"It is said in verse (7:142): "And when We did appoint for Mûsa thirty nights (of solitude) and added to them ten, and he completed the whole time of forty nights appointed by his Lord." On this occasion although Hazrat Mûsa had done the ibâdat of forty days and nights, but in the mention of nights only, there can be many wisdoms. One wisdom, according to the Holy Qur'an (73:6), is that the vigil of the night is most effective in crushing the carnal soul and in acquiring good speech. The ibâdat of the above-mentioned time is both chillah as well as i'tikâf." [Source: A Thousand Wisdoms, Tawil 38]

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.
