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

Ya Ali Madad and Salgirah Mubarak! On the occasion of the 85th birthday of Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam (a.s.), we extend Salgirah Mubarak to the global Jamat. Let us reflect upon the Institution of Imamat and offer heartfelt gratitude for the guidance and vision of our present and living Holy Imam.

On this day, may Noor Mowlana Shah Karim Al-Hussaini Hazar Imam, the 49th direct lineal descendant of the Holy Prophet (s.a.s.), grant peace, prosperity, happiness, barakat, higher spiritual enlightenment, spiritual & luminous tayid (help) and empowerment to the global Jamat as we go through this difficult period. Ameen.

Allâhumâ salli alâ Muhammadin wa âle Muhammad (O Allah! Bestow Peace on and through Muhammad and his Descendants).

Explanation of Ayat 2:106

I have taken the following from footnote 98 from S. V. Mir Ahmed Ali’s Translation:

The Meaning of ‘Ayat’

The word ‘Ayat’ means a sign. Taking the meaning of the word in a broader and a higher sense the best, the greatest and the most manifest sign of God is the human soul, called His apostle who is sent on the earth, duly endowed with Godly powers, strength and authority over men, matters and natural energies serving the divine purpose in the world

Footnote 98 S. V. Mir Ahmed Ali, p.134

The Descent of the Holy Prophets

When one apostle of God was taken away by death another one better than him, i.e., with a superior authority or at least one equal in office was sent in his place. In the sequence of this same order came into this world apostles from God, one after another until came the Last one of them the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Superior-most in the office of ministry with the most Advanced and the Final code of discipline and guidance for mankind as a whole.

Footnote 98 S. V. Mir Ahmed Ali, p.134

The Need of a Guide After the Holy Prophet

When the Holy Prophet Muhammad who was the Superior-most, the Best of all the apostles of God, had to depart from this world the apostleship concluded, for, with the delivery of final heavenly code of the Holy Qur’an and the completion or the perfection of the religion Islam, chosen for mankind for all times until the end of the world (vide Holy Quran 5:3), there remained no need for any other apostle to convey or deliver any new code or creed. The need now still left was of a Guide or Imam for an authentic, or correct or proper explanation of the Word of God, the Holy Qur’an, and to be a model follower of the religion or the most faithful Abider of the Holy Qur’an. Thus this verse clarifies the position of Holy Imams after the Holy Prophet as those equal to him in personal purity and spiritual position as the fountain-heads of the knowledge, wisdom and godly guidance.

Footnote 98 S. V. Mir Ahmed Ali, pp.134-5

The Position of Holy Imams with Respect to the Holy Prophet

There are a large number of announcements of the Holy Prophet about the position of Holy Imams particularly Ali, in relationship to him in his office of the divine ministry for the guidance of mankind.

About Ali, the Holy Prophet has declared:
I and Ali are of the same Light.‘ and ‘The position of Ali with me is like that of Aaron with Moses.

About the Holy Imams it has been declared by the the Holy Prophet:
First of us is Muhammad, the Last of us is Muhammad, the Middle of us is Muhammad, all of us are Muhammad.

Ordinary minds may doubt about this equity between the Holy Prophet and the Imams but there is no room for well-informed intellectuals who know through the electrical implements serving different purposes viz. generating heat and cold, producing action in the fan, sound in radio set and light in the bulb, there is one and the same electric energy which works as demanded by the device. The same Divine Light of God shone in the Holy Prophet, serving the purpose of the apostleship of God manifesting the supreme glory of ministry, [is] in the Imams … [who have] different divine attributes which are endowed exclusively in each one of them.

Footnote 98 S. V. Mir Ahmed Ali, p.135

Noor Mowlana Sultan Muhammad Shah has taught us that the light of Imamat is continuous, perpetual and everlasting and shines through different Imams just as bulbs of different colors shine when electricity passes through them. Since July 11, 1957, Noor Mowlana Hazar Imam has continually guided us in the matters of matter and soul, din and duniya, and this world and the first world. He has continually taught us that the soul is eternal and to seek its enlightenment.

Let us offer gratitude for being under the umbrella of a present and living Imam who is the 49th direct lineal descendant of the Holy Prophet (s.a.s.). Shukran Lillah Wal Hamdu Lillah and Salgirah Mubarak!
