Giryah-u zâri, Moti Venti and Salwat Project for Navroz 2008
Golden Jubilee Darbar in Dubai and Golden Noorani Didar in our Foreheads
Tuesday, March 11, 2008 to Friday, March 21, 2008

Spark No. 4 :: Friday, March 14, 2008

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

Ya Ali Madad. I have articulated this project for Navroz 2008 to increase yearning for the Holy Didar of our beloved Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The ten postings for this project have the following components: (1) a prayer card for the well being and health our most beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam and his family, the upliftment the global Jamat, global Muslim community, and humanity at large, and the salvation of all departed souls; (2) knowledge about Giryah-u zari; (3) 5-verses of Moti Venti presented sequentially; and (4) angelic salwat. On the most auspicious occasion of the upcoming Idd-e-Navroz of this momentous Golden Jubilee year, may the rays of the Light of our beloved NOOR Mowlana Hazar Imam enrich and empower each and every being in different spheres of existence in innumerable ways. Ameen.

Part 1: Prayer Card for the Well-being and Health of the Whole Noorani Family

Let us first declare our noble intentions and then invoke the angelic salwat for exoteric and esoteric purposes:

Ya Ali, Ya NOOR Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, we pray for:

  1. The well being and health of the whole NOORANI family;
  2. Protection from the elements of dross and darkness;
  3. Sunshine in hearts, Light in our foreheads and the blessing of the inner vision of the Truth;
  4. Mushkil Aasan and material, spiritual & intellectual upliftment of the global Jamat, the global Muslim community and humanity at large;
  5. Salvation of all departed souls;
  6. Empowerment of our children with the correct understanding of our holy faith; and
  7. External and internal peace for the whole humanity.

Part 2: Knowledge Component:

Angelic help to perform Giryah-u zâri: "There are innumerable benefits in giryah-u zâri and humility. The main reason for this is that God has endowed man with limitless potentialities and faculties, which he can actualize through purifying the soul and heart by performing giryah-u zâri. Giryah-u zâri is the most powerful and the most effective word and deed. It washes and purifies the heart from all kinds of dirt and impurity. Thus the words which the true mu'mins use in giryah-u zâri and munâjat gradually pour out from the innermost depths of the heart as inspiration and eventually the mu'mins begin to catch glimpses of spiritual help (tayid). That is to say that the angels come to help the mu'mins in performing giryah-u zâri. At this time the mu'min is in one of the places of Divine help (tawfiq), spiritual guidance, inspiration (ilqâ, ilhâm) and revelation of walis (awliya'i wahy)."

0 Lord, Look not to my failings
for I am a sinful being.
O Lord, cover my shortcomings with a veil.
I am an innocent, untouched maiden.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
16
Eji sâmi mâ bâp amanê janamyâ

0 Lord, My parents gave me birth,
and have handed me over to you.
Now take me in your care and protection
and grant me salvation, O Lord.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
17
Eji sâmiji nâriyu(n) tâmâri ati ghâni

abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, Your (spiritual) maidens are innumerable.
There are hundred of thousands like me.
You are the Unknowable (Alakh), the Unseen (Niranjan)
While we are as insignificant as dust.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
18
Eji sâmi hâth zâlyani lâj ânajo

abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, Now that you have held my hand, preserve my honour.
0 Unknowable One, tell me, what is the intensity of love?
Show me your affection and marry me spiritually,
although I am sinful.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.
19
Eji bharjoban maru(n) âviyu(n)
sâmi eklâ nahi rahêvâya

abarâ sharan tamâri
0 Lord, Now that I have reached a mature (spiritual) stage,
I cannot live alone.
I even cannot go about without inviting gossip.
0 Lord, pronounce the vows and marry me spiritually.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

Part 4: Angelic Salwat

"It is mentioned in verse (33:33): "O you the people of the house (of the Prophet)! Verily Allah intends but to keep off from you (every kind of) uncleanness and purify you with a thorough purification." By the people of the house or ahl-i bayt are meant the holy Prophet himself, Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Fatimah, Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Husayn. (Muslim, IV, 1883; Tirmidhi, V, 663)" [Source: Tawil 144: A Thousand Wisdoms]

Now let us recite angelic salwats to invoke Divine grace, mercy and internal purification.
