Dear Nina: LOOKING AT THE LORD:(FANNA FILLA):LIFE IN DEATH: Where are the tidings of union? that I may arise- Forth from the dust I shall rise up to welcome thee!My soul, like homing bird, yearning for paradise, shall arise and soar, from the snares of the world set free.Of life and living, time and mortal span. Pour down,O Lord! from the clouds of thy guiding grace, The rain of mercy that quickeneth on my grave, Before like dust that the wind bears from place to place, I arise.Rise up! let mine eyes delight in thy stately grace! Thou art the goal to which all men's endeavour has pressed, And thou the idol of Poet's worship; thy face From the world and life shall bid him come forth and arise!

Dear Mr. H.E. Mohamed, A THANK YOU for returning to this GUESTBOOK.. You have walked among us as a spirit, and your shadow has BEEN A LIGHT upon our faces..GO NOT yet AWAY from us. A noontide have you been in our twilight and you have given us dreams to dream..No stranger are you among us nor a guest..but..our dearly beloved..Suffer not yet our eyes to hunger for your face..And OTHERS CAME ALSO and entreated him. This we ask..ere you leave us..that you speak to us and GIVE US OF YOUR TRUTH..And we will give it unto our children and they unto their children and it shall not perish. ..You have watched with our days and in your wakefulness you have listened to the weeping and the laughter of our sleep. Now therefore disclose us to ourselves and TELL US ALL that has been shown you of that which is between birth and death.. Kahlil Gibran

Dear Nina, I am quite mindful and appreciative of difficulty you encounter in maintaining this important column of your Website. Although as a contributor I have some interest in its running; but nevertheless, I have found that this is the most important column or a link to your entire Website. If the same could be revived, I am sure, your Website would once again become as vibrant as before. Best regards. (H.E.)

Yaa Ali Madad My name is Arif Prasla. I would like to know something that is there anyone made a movie over Hazrat Ali, because my brother and my father told me that they watch the movie about Hazrat Ali but they cannot figure out the name of the movie. By the way, I watched "The message: The story of Islam" a great movie. Please let me know if you know any movie about Hazrat Ali. Thank You and YAA ALI MADAD P.S: You have constructed a beautiful site for all Ismailis and non-ismailis.

In response to Mr. H.E. Mohamed's question: WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE, COUNTENANCE; The Qur'an clearly suggests that 'All shall perish save his countenance' In other words..we are here on this earth for just a short passage in eternity..but while we are here we must remember that our purpose or destiny is to do 'good deeds', to help one another..support and love each other every day..to keep the spirit of caring and giving alive..Service to others is the foundation of our faith..and we must always keep that uppermost in our minds..

Dear Nina: HAS LIFE A PURPOSE? We seem to be driving towards a destination of which we are not aware. We rarely stop to reflect why this should be so. If the long chain of events, that mould life and our reactions towards it were to be viewed under the microscope of the human intellect, it would be observed that the life is an intricate pattern wherein pleasure and pains, joys and sorrows, fulfilments and disappointments have fairly been intervoven. This is the cocktail of life. Has life a purpose? The mystery of life is certainly the most pertinent problem ever placed before the thought of man.

Dear Nina Jaffer: I tried signing on to your Guestbook but for some reason it wouldn't allow me to create mail. Therefore, I am sending you this e-mail to thank you for all the excellent information provided on the Ismaili Net. I am sure a lot of time and effort goes into creating such a wonderful website. I really appreciate the knowledge that is contained in the articles on philosophical matters. History and Sufi matters are also very rich in knowledge. I have forwarded some of your articles such as: Islam the Religion of my Ancestors, Risala Dar Haqiqati Din as well as history on some of our Dais to my Ismaili friends who were looking to gain knowledge on Ismailism. May Allah bless you with good health and peace for all your efforts. Amen!

Dear Nina:OUR JAMATI STRENGTH: One of the great strength of our Jamat is flexibility. History, both Muslim and non-Muslim is studded with examples of societies which have stagnated through failing to adapt to new historical and human trends. Paralysis gained control of the body of these groups through progressive attack on the military, moral, material, social and economic features of these societies. From this gradual paralysis death has invariably ensued, either after longer or shorter periods. The continuous review of history which is being made every day is necessary, so that the processes of adjustment for the bases of our society are brougth uptodate.We are proud that in our community, women have been put on the forefront to share equal burden with men.

Thank you very much for the most informative writing I have found on the Ismaili belief. I consider myself a lost soul. I feel very spiritual but I do not belong to any religion. I find your articles very interesting. However I can not find a listing of the Ismaili prayers. Is it possible for you to tell me where I may find them? In the mean time I will continue searching and reading your web site and again thank you for giving a little light for me on my search to find the correct way to praise Allah. Ed Steiner

Dear Nina,(Sheila Ismail's poem was delightful): POET HAFIZ OF IRAN (1320-89). In "Divan" of Hafiz contains 693 poems. In Iran every other man wrote verses, and kings honored poets next to generals. In Hafiz's time a score of Persian poets won renown from the Mediterrnean to the Ganges and from Yemen to Samarkand. All of them, however,bowed to Shamasu'd-Din Muhammad Hafiz:Sample: "The night was about to fade when, drawn by the perfume of the roses, I went down into the garden to seek,like the nighingale, balm for my fever. In the shadow there gleaned a rose, a rose red as veiled lamp, and I gazed upon its countenance. The rose is lovely because of the face of divine is lovely.In the darkness of the night I sought to unloose my heart from the bonds of they tresses, but I felt the touch of thy cheeks, and I drank of divine's lips."

Dear Nina: I am indeed flattered and touched by kind words said by a lady browser. ON IMAMAT DAY: We must begin and address ourselves to the great task while tide of hope is high, remembering that the mills of God run slow compared to the impatience of our desires. The finger of destiny beckons us to "start now, immediately, not a day later" for the flux of time does not admit any procrastination. With steadfast faith, let the caravan of our Faith, in its mission of peace and doctrine of service and love, resume the march with uplifted heads in a joint journey with the rest of the human family.

Ya Ali Madat Nina, khushiali mubarak to all brothers and sisters. I like your site keep on with the great work amen. I would like to share something very special with you, my very first poems. Happiness Happiness is rising each sunrise by your smooth whisper, softly echoing against my haven. Sharing a moment of silence, whilst we viewing the waves cautiously beating above the surface of the divine ocean. Squeezing your hand in mine, strolling under the moonlight surrounded with sparkling stars. Glancing the rouge pearls of the finest bouquet caressing your tender lips. Happiness is drowning in your depth eyes, dazzling with fragrance of exquisite opals the universe ever gave birth to. But most of all, to be enable to love thy divine seraph, Knowing you breathe the same air and walk under the same sun as I. And if you for a slight twinkle could savour my happiness Then only, could we together taste the fruits of heavenly bequest; Love Aphrodite Oh Lord! How privileged I are, For enchanting thy profound creation, a magnum opus from thy kingdom. The eighth wonder is beholden before me, Heavenly garnished within velvet skin, softness comparable to pelage clouds, those bestowed to mankind by thee. Mysteries of seven universes are visualised within her sight, carved into precious crystal, brilliantly glistening as thou eternal lamp. Her sweet angelic laughter received as music singing to my auricle, a magnificent symphony performance with thousands of violins conducted by thee, aria that miraculously provokes every being to shiver of glorious ecstasy. Oh Lord! How obliged I are to thee, For conceding me to perceive the beauty of thy Aphrodite. Hope you enjoy reading them, with Ya Ali madat Sheila Ismail
