Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak! The 24-hour clock the Muslim calendar starts sunset, therefore, Saturday, May 11, 2019 is the seventh 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:

"[§10] God said: 'Who is better in speaking than he who appeals to God, does what is righteous and says, "Most certainly I am a Muslim."'16 This verse explains that there is no position in this world and the next, better and more glorious than that of those who summon to God, and that a condition of the da'wa is that it comes with appropriate actions. If a person has not done righteous acts, he is not suited to be a dâ'î. If a person does not renounce the association with God of other things, and does not affirm the absolute Oneness of Him, does not understand well the declaration of that Oneness but rather continues to compare God to created beings, he cannot be a dâ'î. It is as our lord the Commander of the Believers, may the blessings of God be upon him and on the imams among his offspring, said: 'Dâ'îs in religion distinguish between doubt and certainty'. Distinguishing between doubt and certainty is to separate truth from falsehood. It is possible that he intended it to be between the literal exterior and the inner meaning. Someone who does not know the true and certain, how can he distinguish doubt from certainty, the truth from falsehood? The dâ'î must know the difference between truth and falsehood, so that he can distinguish one from the other, lest he judge the false to be true, and true to be false, and have them accept this judgment from him, leading thereby to the corruption of the da'wa. "

16. Qur'an, 41:33

Part 3: Dhikr Tasbi
In the firman made on December 13, 1964 in Karachi, Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam said that 'his Noor has indicated to you where and in which direction you must turn, so as to obtain spiritual and material satisfaction'. I have taken this firman to my heart and am now doing dhikrs which call on the Noor directly because in my heart, Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini (a.s.) is the pillar of Light and is represented by the words 'Noore Karim' in the dhikrs. I firmly hold on to this luminous pillar in my dhikr of Noore Karim, Daaras-Salaam. Let us perform the luminous dhikr of Noore Karim, Daaras-Salaam with utmost humility and tenderness of the heart (length 2 min 59 sec; 4.1 MB). The lyrics for the 40 beads are given below:

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
