Divine Names Retreat, Ya Nurun ala Nur
Beloved Shaykha Amina, Circle Guides and Companions of the Tariqat
Peace to your hearts. And may your peace increase manifold through the study we have now entered of the Esma ul Husna, the Beautiful Names of Allahu ta’ala.
We are presently immersed in the Name Ya Nur, O Light! It is suggested that you recite this Name every day 33 times, feeling the gentle power of Divine Light arising from within your secret essence and permeating your body, soul and mind.
You may also use the Name Ya Nurun ala Nur, Light upon Light, Light within Light, instead of simply Ya Nur. I find this even more dynamic and penetrating.
It also appeared in a dream of one of our blessed dervishes under the guidance of Shaykha Amina in Mexico. In the dream he was observing this Esma being intensely intoned in the zikr circle of the Dergah of Pir Nureddin Jerrahi, rahmetullah aleyhi.
Ya Nurun ala Nur! Ya Nurun ala Nur! Ya Nurun ala Nur!
