Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 17 :: 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, Thursday, May 31, 2018 is the seventeenth 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 seventeenth night of Holy Ramadan has four parts:

  1. Gems of knowledge from Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi, or "Advices of Manliness" of Imam NOOR Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II (a.s.);
  2. One beautiful verse of supplication from Pir Hasan Kabirdin's (r.a.) Moti Venti;
  3. Luminous dhikr of Noore Karim, Ya Rabb;
  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 the submission of dasond (mal-i wajibat):

"You should occupy yourself with matters and work with which God may be pleased and must not act against the commandments of God. From whatever you earn you must put aside a tithe, which is a religious duty (mal-i wajibad), and deliver it to the treasury of your Mawla who is 'Ali Murtada, the Master of this world and of the hereafter. You must do it with a feeling of perfect love, with sincere intention, smilingly and rejoicing that the tithe paid (submitted) by you has reached the luminous presence of your Mawla and has been accepted. Then offer thanks (because this proves) that your earnings were lawful to you, as the tithe has reached the Mawla, and was accepted. Then the remaining parts are lawful to you, and you will see many benefits from this, both in this world and the hereafter." (pp.54-55)

Part 2: Teaching of Pir Hasan Kabirdin
In the following verse from Moti Venti, Pir Hasan Kabirdin teaches us to supplicate to Mowla and implore him to overlook our shortcomings and keep us on the Right path:

abarâ sharan tamâri
 
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.
