  3. A Dhikr tasbi; and
  4. Angelic salwat

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: Excerpts from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§4] Dâ'îs to the truth — they who uphold righteousness — do not relish the vanities of this world or thirst in their hearts for political leadership. All who hunger for this world and aspire after positions of authority go astray from the true path, having lost their way."

"[§5] The entering of people into religion and the da'wa out of sincere devotion to God and to the faith, will not cease until God fulfils His promise to the imams which He made when He said: 'God promises those of you who believe and do good deeds of righteousness that he shall cause them to inherit the world just as he did with those who came before, and fix for them their faith in a religion He approves for them and, in place of their fears, substitutes peace.'5"

5. Qur'an, 24:55.

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
Repentance is the mechanism to return to our Creator therefore it is appropriate to use the tasbi "Astaghafirullahi Rabbi Wa Atubu Ilayhi (Verily, I seek the forgiveness of Allah, who is my Lord and Sustainer, and I turn to Him in repentance)" to implement this Divine command. The recitation of this tasbi will lead to gradual purification and the fruition of Noor Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah's blessing in which he said that a day will come when you will be able to abstain from committing sins. With this understanding, let us start to recite the Astaghafirullahi Rabbi Wa Atubu Ilayhi tasbi (Verily, I sincere seek the forgiveness of Allah, who is my Lord and Sustainer, and I turn to Him in repentance) with utmost sincerity and humility.
