:: Enlightenment Norm #3 :: Walk in the Truth ::

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

Ya Ali Madad. Please reflect on some of the characteristics of a real believer, according to Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.):

"The (real) believer is one who is a man (Jawaannard), i.e., he who throughout the whole year of twelve months acts properly and piously, continuously remembering the Truth (Haqq). He must speak the truth, listen to the truth, must abide in truth and walk in truth. His heart must be clean, and his thoughts sincere, he must remain clean."
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.2)
"The (real) believer is one who possesses the eye which sees truth, who looks at what is lawful (haqq) to him, and does not cast his eyes on what is unlawful to him, such as the property or wives of others."
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.3)
"The (real) believer is one who continually remembers God (Haqq), and whose tongue does not utter anything without mention of God."br> 
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, p.6)

May our beloved Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) grant you, your family, your Jamat and the worldwide Jamat luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) tayid (help) to advance materially, spiritually and intellectually, and may He grant you the inner vision of the Truth. Ameen.
