Ta'wil Posts on the Subject of Imâm and Imâmat for the 47th Imâmat Day Celebration

Post No. 15: Ta'wil of the word 'Awliyâ Allah' and Salwat Tasbi

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

Ya Ali Madad. In his firman to Surat Jamat on 12th October, 1903, NOOR Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah (a.s.) said "If you always read religious books, you will come to know that the throne of Imamat is continuous, perpetual and everlasting." Therefore, let us seek luminous (noorani) and spiritual (ruhani) help (tayid) to understand the tawil of Qur'anic words or ayats pertaining to Imâm and Imâmat, and then recite a bouquet of salwats to strengthen our knowledge (ilm) and faith (iman).

Ta'wil of word 'Awliyâ Allah' (Chosen friends of God):
 
"In verse (10:62) God says about His friends: "Lo! verily for the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve." These friends of God are the progeny of the holy Prophet whom God has exalted by granting them the ta'wili miracles of the glorious Qur'ân, because the greatest miracle of the holy Prophet which is intellectual, permanent and in the form of knowledge, is indeed the wise Qur'ân. The Qur'ân has two aspects: tanzil and ta'wil. Tanzil or exoteric aspect was conveyed to the people by the Prophet himself and for ta'wil or esoteric aspect, he appointed his successor."

Let us recite a bouquet of angelic salwats to strengthen our knowledge (ilm) and faith (iman).

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

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad:
O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants

Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil 'alamin.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds!

Global Prayer:

Follow these links to read an article or a poem on salwat, or hear the recitation of Ayatul Kursi and Salwat.

May Mowla enrich you with inspired knowledge (ilm-i laduni) through these spiritual and intellectual exercises. Ameen.
