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 9, 2019 is the fifth night of the Holy Ramadan for Ismailis in Canada. The background, overview, schedule, niyat and noble wishes of the 2019 Holy Ramadan Project is presented separately on the fundamental concepts page of this directory. Please go through it as often as you desire.

Ramadan Activities
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:

"[§8] The verse in which God says: 'Verily We have send you as a witness, a bearer of good tidings, and a warner; and a dâ'î on behalf of God and by His leave, a lamp spreading light'10 shows that someone who is not just and trustworthy is not to give testimony about either religion or the world, and cannot be a dâ'î. He who is not fit to spread the good news of the spiritual world and the reward and afterlife, and to summon the people by means of knowledge without revealing the inner truth except to those he has approved, examined and tested by various forms of trial, that person is not allowed to be a dâ'î. God also calls him a 'warner'. He who does not know about spiritual world or the punishment and in which way he should warn, caution and instill fear of punishment; how can he be fit to be a dâ'î? The same verse also specifies that the da'wa depends necessarily on the permission of he who holds the authority over it."

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
The ism-i azam is the door to luminosity, therefore it is a treasure that should be constantly remembered. Here is a humble dhikr to emphasize this point. Let us pray to NOOR Mowlana Hazar to empower us to practice the luminous prayer at a luminous time with a luminous word, i.e., perform bandagi with ism-i azam, the Supreme Name of God, with a greater effort, strength and enthusiasm.
