The motivation for this 30-day project is to increase the intensity of prayers during the month of Holy Ramadan. For this purpose, 30 posts for each auspicious night of Holy Ramadan have been prepared. Each post will consist of four parts:

  1. Enlightenment teachings from the Holy Qu'ran;
  2. Excerpt)s) from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission';
  3. A Dhikr tasbi; and
  4. Angelic salwat

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: An excerpt 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:

"[§7] God addressed His Prophet as follows: 'Summon to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fine words and argue with them using what is best.'8 This verse indicates that a da'wa can appeal also for a cause which is not that of God but that he commanded him [the Prophet] that his appeal should be only to the way of God. ...God ordered the Prophet in this verse to make his appeal using 'wisdom and fine words' and his arguments should be those that are most appropriate. It will be understood that a person not familiar with wisdom and fine words is not suitable to be a dâ'î. He said: 'and dispute with them using what is best'. A person not adept at disputation had better not become a dâ'î. Disputation, discussion and refutation are not done in the best manner other than by those most knowledgeable about the literal and the figurative meanings, both in the rational and the legal sense. Wisdom consists of knowledge plus deeds. 'Fine words' comprise of exhortation through inner meaning. That which is 'fine' here consists of loyal devotion to our Master, the Commander of Believers, 'Ali b. Abî Tâlib. God has said: 'He who produces the best has ten models of it',9 which is to say, he who believes in the authority of 'Ali b. Abî Tâlib understands the ten ranks of the hierarchy, five of which are bodily and five spiritual."
