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, Sunday, May 12, 2019 is the eighth 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:

"[§11] But God has said: 'Let there come from you a community that guides to be good and commands the acceptable and prohibits the reprehensible; they are ones who succeed.'17 This verse describes the imams and makes it clear that the dâ'î must follow their sunna and be an agent of good, commanding the good and prohibiting the reprehensible, and he himself must act in accord to the good they have ordered and forbid the unacceptable they have prohibited. It is as Ja'far b. Muhammad al-Sâdiq has said: 'Be for us silent dâ'îs, and they asked, 'How can we make the appeal, O son of the messenger of God, if we are silent? He replied, 'Act in accord with what we commanded you to do with respect to obeying God and forbid what we forbade you to do.' It is not possible to be someone who commands the good and not do that himself. It is as God says: 'Do you order people to act righteously but forget to do so yourself?'18 This verse just cited explains clearly that anyone who has this characteristic is an adversary of success and aims instead of perdition."
