Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 11 :: Knowledge & Prayers for Advancement

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

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Friday, May 25, 2018 is the eleventh night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. The background, overview, niyat and noble wishes of the 2018 Holy Ramadan Project is presented in the project details page. The schedule, web page links and PDF posts are presented on the index page of the directory.

This project has daily posts because we have to keep our souls charged after the mulaqats with Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam. The states of our spiritual hearts have changed so Holy Ramadan is the right time to assimilate deep spiritual knowledge and accelerate our upward journey. We all look forward to Imamat Day 2018 while members of our global jamat are also preparing for the upcoming Darbars in Paris, London and Lisbon.

This post for the auspicious eleventh night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. A gem of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II;
  2. Two verses from the beautiful ginan of Pir Ali Akbar Beg (r.a.);
  3. Luminous dhikr of Noore Karim, Daaras-Salaam;
  4. Angelic salwat which is the anchor tasbi for the project.

Part 1: Teaching of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.)
In Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.) teaches us about how to occupy a place near the throne of the Lord:

"Therefore, O, believers, the matters of the hereafter are settled in this world, whether they are to be good or bad. Therefore, let your hearts be pure and united in this world, be united in your hearts with each other so that tomorrow at the Resurrection, in the presence filled with pure light of the Imam of the time, the absolute Lord, you may occupy a place near the throne of the Lord uniting with one another, filled with perfect joy and happiness." (p.36)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Ali Akbar Beg
How can we occupy a place near the throne of the Lord? In his ginan Aavine besone gothadi kariye, Pir Ali Akbar Beg's guidance is to practise meditation, observe religious vows, and reflect on the eternal truths which are in the ginans. All these will lead to the experience of being in the immortal abode of paradise. In our faith, this is possible and our great Pirs experienced paradise while being physically alive on this earth. The experience to be near the throne and under the umbrella of the pure light of the Holy Imam should be the ultimate goal of one's physical existence.

Eji Jap tap nem dharam jo karsho

O Brother If you perform meditation, abstinence and observe the religious
vows with correct intentions, then brothers, with such deeds you will cross over the limits (of material existence).

Eji Ginan vichaari saacha thai chaalo

Then you will experience the immortal abode of paradise.
