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. 5 :: Saturday, March 15, 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:

Repeated Need of Giryah-u zâri: "Giryah-u zâri is the greatest struggle (jihâd) against satanic and carnal soul. The satanic soul becomes scared of giryah-u zâri and the canal becomes half-dead. Therefore there is a repeated need for giryah-u zâri until a mu'min gains salvation. Undoubtedly by the sacrifice of tears, the moral strength of the mu'min increases, and angels and pure souls are given the opportunity of coming and cleaning the heart, Divine grace and benediction descend, a dignified light shines on the contenance, mutual brotherhood, sisterhood and love flourish and the mirror of the heart receives glad tidings of spiritual manifestations." (Source: Studies in Dream and Spiritualism, pp.24-25)

Eji jân lainê sâmi âvajo

0 Lord, Come with your friends,
and do not delay any longer.
Be kind, O Lord, and visit,
Because I am your (spiritual) maiden
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

0 Lord, I am linked to your name,
and this is well known everywhere,
and to the assembled millions of souls of the Kalap period.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

0 Lord, I have been weary of wandering around
and I cannot go any further.
Overlook my shortcomings, O Lord,
for I cannot subsist without you.
Have mercy on me, my Lord.
I am helpless and dependent on you.

0 Lord, Like the fish that struggles of being out of water,
I am a maiden without a husband.
O Lord, make arrangements for a (spiritual) wedding
and do not postpone or delay for too long.
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.
