"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

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, Wednesday, May 30, 2018 is the sixteenth 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 sixteenth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:
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 submission of dasond (mal-i wajibat) and about our first duty towards the Holy Imam:
|"The tithe has been established by the King of Men Murtada 'Ali. He commanded the adepts of the Truth (haqiqatiyyan) saying that everyone who is the follower of the Truth (ahi-i haqiqat), and has the desire of his didar, must pay (submit) the tithe from his income. By this he may secure the chance of the didar. The followers of the Shariat do not know and realize the implications (or symbolism, ramz) of this commandment. Thus, everyone who has connection with the Imam of the time must always pay (submit) his (religious) duty, i.e., the tithe, which is due to the Imam of the time, delivering it, and being ready to sacrifice at his command his own life and (the whole of) his property." (pp.55-56)|
Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin
In the following verse from Moti Venti, Pir Hasan Kabirdin teaches us that there are millions of purified souls in paradise. Therefore, it will be a great challenge for us to be deserving to be present in that congregation. The Holy Pir is teaching us to supplicate to our beloved and kind Mowla for forgiveness, mercy, and for become more deserving to be in his Holy Presence:

|0 Lord,||Your (spiritual) maidens are innumerable.
There are hundreds 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.
