"Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out?" — Holy Qur'an 6:122
Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam's ta'lim guides the murid to higher spiritual enlightenment & vision.

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Ya Ali Madad. In Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us about submission of dasond (mal-i wajibat):
"But if you do not pay the duty (maliyaa'i wajibat), you will be like the one who does not sow his grain. And if you give the money to some one else to deliver (on your behalf) to the treasury of the Mawla, and he does not deliver it, it will be as if you have given grain to a farmer, who has then consumed that grain, instead of sowing it. In that case both farmer and the landlord will remain empty-handed. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary that you should deliver the money to the Imam's treasury correctly, in full and without delay.
If you do not pay, that one part will become the fire which will burn the other nine parts, then good luck, blessing and well being will depart from you and your property. From the ten parts one is the property of God (Khudawand), who has commanded that his slaves should always be instructed not to fail in making always an account of their income, and paying the share of God, in order that they may enjoy their earnings lawfully."
(Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, pp.54-55)
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.
