Cheto rikhisaro guru kahe sache Satgure aem kahaya. 1) Introduction to the Imam of the time-God manifest, resides in Iran and He is the One who Satgur(Pir) Introduced you (Momin) to Him. Refrain: Beware O Momins! This is what the true Guru tells you. 2) Eji Aal Alijine te kahiae, Nabi Mohammed pir musalle che tya(n)ae Isre aal thi je boolshe, Teto jayse dozak mahain. Cheto...... 2) That the descendant of Ali and Mohammed is He (present Imam) and if you do not recognize Him you will go to Hell. 3) Eji Isre aalthi aal chaliya Te to aviya kahek nagri mahain, Vircha a(n)goaa thanak kahiae, Sri Islam Shah betha che tya(n)ae. Cheto..... 3) Right from that lineage Shri Islam Shah is the present holder of that Noor and He resides in Kehek. 4) Eji Joma(n) Joma(n) ma(n)ae ae Narji kahiae Teni sa(n)kh che aelm mahain, Chalis sipara Kuran na, Te mahain tris che duniya mahain. Cheto..... 4) In every Imam it is the same Noor of Ali and the scriptures bear that out of 40 Siparas (parts) of the Quran are a proof of that and verily 30 are in this world. 5) Eji Das sipara baaki rahya, Te che ae ghar mahain, Athar ved tene kahiae, Teni vani Satgur mukhaj mahain. Cheto..... 5) The rest of th 10 Siparas (Parts) are really the gist of this religion Momins you should recognize the 10 Siparas as the prime religion and that was what Pir Satgur introduced you to. 6) Eji Aal Nabi jine jug mahain aaviya, Tene te kidha ae dharam upaya, Satguru Imam Shah aem kahe, Teto aal Mohammed ni Kahevay. Cheto.... 6) Nabi's descent cameto this world to show you the right path(religion) Guru Imam Shah (composer) tells you this that verily ( Imam of the Time) He is Muhammed's progeny. 7) Eji Noor thi Nooraj pragatiya, Teno vas che Nooraj mahain, Tene aa Satpa(n)th peda kidha, Khoji kadiyo Kuran mahain. Cheto..... 7) The Noor in the Imam of the Time is the same that was the cause of creation and really is from the very Noor you have been given the Satpanth,nay, even the Quran originated from that Noor. 8) Eji Char ved char kitab khojiya, Satguru sarve tya(n)ae, Ilm allah jiae bhejiaa, Farad farmaviya Furkqan mahain. Cheto...... 8. (Allah has sent) four Kitabs (scriptures) - Tawrat, Zabur, Injil, Furqan - and four Hindu scriptures (the Veds) - the right Guru is mentioned in those scriptures (OR Imam Shah http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
  2. 2. MOMIN CHETAMANI by SYED IMAM SHAH Page 2 of 76 has studied those scriptures). That knowledge was sent by Allah and it is presently in the Quran. 9) Eji Farad Furqane thi upanya, Teto parvariya pirothami mahain, Shariyat, tariqat, haqiqat, teni, Malum che marifat mahain. Cheto..... 9. The Quran has given you the basic understanding of Shariat, Tariqat and Haqiqat - it is up to you now to search for Marifat. 10) Eji Marfat mahain thi kadi kari, Teto aaniyo is panyh mahain, Tya(n) raheni rakho nisch kari, Aapna jivne tya(n)ae. Cheto..... 10. The spiritual side of your existence is found in the Satpanth (and you can find it) if you pray during the night with real faith and verily that is the only salvation for your soul. 11) Eji Isre rehani thi je boolshe, Teno tham nahire kiya(n)ae, Teto fera fare lakh chorayashi tana, Teto moksh na pame kaya(n)ae. Cheto.... 11. Those Momins who do not wake up in the morning for Ibadat will go astray and their souls will have to evolve 84 lakh times; in other words, they will not achieve salvation. 12) Eji Lakh chorashi to chutiae, Jo rahiae aapna Satguru ke farman mahain, Daso(n)d dije Satguru mukhe, To vaso howe amrapuri mahain. Cheto.... 12. The only way to overcome this evolvement of 84 lakh times is by obeying Satgur's Farman, and giving Dasond to Satgur. Verily this will ensure your place in Heaven (Amrapuri). 13) Eji Amrapuri che aagle, Tena sukh kahya nav jay, Satgure dithi tevi kahi, Tya(n) hur malaaek che mahain. Cheto.... 13. The Amrapuri (Heaven) that you will experience and the peace that you will have is impossible for Me to describe! Verily believe Me when I say that I have experienced it and it is a place full of Firastas and spiritually evolved souls. 14) Eji Anat meva che te mahel ma(n), Te ghar ni shobha che tya(n)y, Moman rikhisar te mahel ma(n), Liana(n) lad karshe tya(n)y. Cheto..... 14. In the Amrapuri (Heaven) there are boundless rewards and that (Imam) will bestow His blessings on Momins and grant all their hearts' desires. 15) Eji Aewa ghar te jiv pamshe, Je chalshe aapna satpanth mahain, Khara dasondi sukarit vanta, Teni sankha che aelm mahain. Cheto.... 15. So remember Momin, if you walk the path of Satpanth and be a Dasondi and observe Sukreet (good deeds) you will find that Amrapuri for even our scriptures (the right knowledge) bear that fact. 16) Eji Te Aelm Ali thi pragatya, Teni sankh che Kuran mahain, Kuran kudarat mahain thi utarya, Teni sankh che ae ghar mahain. Cheto.... 16. The right knowledge has come from Ali and His progeny as is borne (forecast) by the Holy Quran and the Holy Quran has come from God Himself (Qudrat) and the proof http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
  3. 3. MOMIN CHETAMANI by SYED IMAM SHAH Page 3 of 76 of all that is really here in Satpanth (this Ghar) 17) Eji Ae ghar dekhi je boolshe, Teto jashe dozakh mahain, Aad uniyade thi ae ghar kahiae, Tene sreva(n)ta vimab na kije kai(n). Cheto.... 17. Momins, despite being aware of this Ghar (Satpanth), if you ignore it then you will not achieve salvation and will deserve Hell (Dozakh) for this Ghar is really the proof of the infinite God and never think twice about serving Him. 18) Eji Brahma ne Vishnu Maheshvar kahiae, Teto sarve che ae ghar mahain, Ae ghar ma(n)thi aalaj chaliya, Teto parvariya pirothami mahain. Cheto...... 18. The Gods such as Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshvar are all one in this Satpanth and are manifest in Ali's progeny and is present with us in this world. 19) Eji Tare Vishnu a var datar thaya, Kirpa kidhi Brahmaji upare tya(n)y, Tamo Jawo jug mahain vani karo, Ame sathe aavshoon tya(n)y. Cheto.... 19. Remember Momins that Vishnu in His mercy had told Brahma that He would grant His wish and in whatever Joog Brahma wanted Him, then Vishnu would be with Him 20) Eji Tene Farmane Brahamji jug mahain aaviya, Vani kidhi te jug mahain, Prabodhi pirothami Brahmaji ae, Dharam marag chalaviya tya(n)y. Cheto...... 20. And it is because of that promise Brahmaji has been able to continue Satpanth. 21) Eji Anat kalap aewa wahi gaya, Pache aaviya te char kalap tya(n)y, Te mahaina tran kalap vartiya, Brahmaji ne farmane rahya tya(n)y Cheto...... 21. Thus many eras (Kalaps) have passed and the four Kalaps have passed and the four Kalaps finally prevailed, of which three have already passed and in the past three, Brahma was obeying Vishnu's Firman. 22) Eji Kalap mahain parwariya, Char jug te kidha mahain, Aad uniyade bera hata, Satguru shami jini sewaae Cheto...... 22. In the present (fourth) Kalap, there are four Joogs and the Gods have combined into one God and verily that is the Right Guru (present Imam). 23) Eji Tya(n)thi satguru pragatya, Ane aaviya te char jug mahain, Te mahain tran jug wahi gaya, Tena jivra pahota thanok mahain Cheto...... 23. Remember Momins that three Joogs have passed and Satgur has come in the fourth Joog to lead you tosalvation. 24) Eji Te avtare avtar vahi gaya, Rachana kidhi vishanu brahmaji tya(n)y, Aaj chelli sandh kaljug sandhe, Murtaza Ali avtarya makka mahain Cheto...... 24. So many eras have passed and Vishnu prevailed as the Creator. In this last and present era (Kaljoog) Murtaza Ali has manifested in Mecca. 25) Eji Tya(n)thi aalaj chaliya, Teto aaviya kahek nagari mahain, Sri Islam Shah tya(n) nar kahiae, Shah garibnoon tejj mahain Cheto...... 25. From that day His progeny has continued till this day in Kehek town and the name of the present Imam isShri Islam Shah. 26) Eji Ae ghar sreve je satsoon, http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
  4. 4. MOMIN CHETAMANI by SYED IMAM SHAH Page 4 of 76 Tena patak sarve jay, Avtare avtar orkhe, Tene pahele moksh muktaj thay Cheto...... 26. Those Momins who will serve Him with sincerity, all their past and present sins will be forgiven. They will also recognize Him in all His different forms and they will be the ones who will achieve salvation. 27) Eji Ae gher dasondaj dijiae, Te mahain aaras na kije lagaar, Anek jiv aage udhariya, Tene orakhiyo potano bharthar Cheto...... 27. So Momins, do not fall behind in your Dasond for many souls have already achieved salvation and these were the souls who had recognized the Imam as their Lord 28) Eji Dasond vina nahi(n) chutso, Sambaro munivar kahoon chaon varanvar, Chello akharo aa jug tano, Te mahain hathsoon kari liyo sambar Cheto...... 28. Without Dasond there is no salvation so heed Me Momins, for I am being emphatic. This Joog is the last stage where you can achieve salvation; then why not make an extra effort to achieve it. 29) Eji Dasond dasmi pati kahiae, Teto chalo ae narjisoon aahar, Chaliso te pir mukhe aaliae, Moman tano ae che vevar Cheto...... 29. Dasond is a tenth of your earnings for the Imam and that is for his material upkeep and food (ahar) and the fortieth of your earning is for Pir, for Pir has dedicated His life for you. 30) Eji Dasond deta(n) je jiv rolavshe, Teno hal mal nahire parivar, Kiyana hina koie jiv nahi tare, Satguru kahe che pukar Cheto...... 30. Those Momins who will be dubious about paying Dasond will have no material, physical or familial peace. These are the Momins who have not walked the path of Satpanth and I am beseeching them. 31) Eji Aakhar jamano aaviyo, Aavi chelli kaljug ni var, Avtar sarve pura thaya, Have sami rajo thashe aswar Cheto...... 31. O Momins! This is the last time you have come here and all your Avtars are now over and now King Ali will do Aswari (Epiphany) (make Himself known). 32) Eji Dar re chalshe nak lank tano, Tare thashe te hal halkar, Te mahain sati jiv jitshe, Kayar khashe ghan keri mar Cheto...... 32. There will be a battle fought by the Imam (Naklank) and this will be much heralded. Only "good" souls will win this battle. The stubborn or misguided will have utter defeat. 33) Eji Kayar ma thajore munivaro, Aagal che dohelore paar, Ali rajo lekha(n) magashe, Nisch jaano nirdhar Cheto...... 33. So Momins, do not be amongst the misguided for you have a difficult mountain to climb and Ali will put you on trial so don't be misguided. 34) Eji Kaljug ni sandh che doheli, Ae moman bhai tame rahejo hoshiyar, Dasond dejo satguru mukhe, Tethi utaro pahele paar Cheto...... 34. This Kaljoog is a difficult time, so beware, give Dasond to the right Guru and that is one way of achieving salvation. http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
  5. 5. MOMIN CHETAMANI by SYED IMAM SHAH Page 5 of 76 35) Eji Je dasond nahi deshe satguru mukhe, Teto kayar thashe ne khashere maar, Tena haira mahain thi agni uthshe, Tare jivso te karse pukar Cheto...... 35. Those who won't give Dasond to the right Guru and remain stubborn despite knowing that, they will never have peace in their hearts and their souls will eternally be crying. 36) Eji Satguru sarve sambaraviaa, Moman bhai tame karjo vichar, Aad uniayade thi ae ghar chalioo, Te Ali rajo karshe sambar Cheto...... 36. Momins, I have told you all, it's up to you to think over it. This house (Satpanth) of Ali is from God Himself. So do not forget to remember Ali. 37) Eji Lekha(n) leshe gurnar sa(n)hiay, Tya(n) sao koie puchayeshe nar ne naar, Otam madhayam tya(n) koie nahi, Koie keni var na karse lagaar Cheto...... 37. When our Lord will question us about our sins no woman or man would be spared and none will have time to correct their wrong-doings. 38) Eji Utam aachare utam jan jo, Madyam aachare madyam saar, Tame saho koie gnan sambro, Aagar koie keno nahin nar ne naar Cheto...... 38. If you are good in your dealings, so shall you be dealt with and vice-versa for after all you are all listening to this Ginan and on that Day nobody will be your buddy. 39) Eji Baap beto keno nahi, Nahi keno kutamb parivar, Aevi vela jyare aavashe, Tyare nahi koie sasro mosar Cheto...... 39. A father will not befriend his son nor will you recognize your family and when a time like that will prevail, there won't even be any in-laws to worry about. 40) Eji Je jiv srevaae thi chukshe, Hadai dharm nahir aanse lagaar, Te mayana moho mahain borshe, Saho koie sarvathe jashe sansaar Cheto...... 40. The soul which has not served and a heart that has not thought of religion, that person will be so attached in this world that he will be let down by those he places trust in. 41) Eji Kaljug jamano kathan jyare aavshe, Tare sahone dile vaparshe kahar, Te mahain je jiv nahi chetshe, Te jivne parshe janjal Cheto...... 41.

Those people who will not heed this warning, these people will have a long way to go. 42) Eji Sansar sarve sambaro, Sambari ma thajo gemar, Satguru jugo jug aaviya, Teni vaani noon tame rakho vichar Cheto...... 42. Momins! You may deal with your surroundings (Sansar) but don't let that lead you astray. The right Guru has come in each era and that promise is the one you should be thinking about (you should be searching for the right Guru in this era). 43) Eji Ma(n)ho ma(n)he bandhav larshe, Teto nahi(n) ganshe mata pita noon parivar, Kathan vachan kaheshe aap ma, Aevo te aavshe sansar Cheto...... 43. Mother and children will fight with each other and won't consider themselves as one family. The child will abuse his mother. Such will be the call of the day (conduct of the time). http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
  6. 6. MOMIN CHETAMANI by SYED IMAM SHAH Page 6 of 76 44) Eji Koie kene ghare nahi aavshe, Mane aavshe te rosh aapar, Aha(n)kari a(n)jash aanshe ghano, Telhi jashe te narak dwar Cheto...... 44. People will stop visiting each other. They will blame each other and selfishness will prevail. All these are roads to Hell. 45) Eji Manre maya thi bolshe, Nahi koie karshe gnan na vichar, Te budi ae thi kaal na utar, Adharmi utpatoon karshe aapar Cheto...... 45. Your mind will be involved in Maya (worldly affairs) and no one will think about Ginans.

And that is the sign that the End is near, so do think over that Momins. When selfishness prevails and when everybody leaves religion. 49) Eji Termi sadi aakhar jyare aavshe, Tare dharm na raheshe lagaar, Satiaana sat tare totshe, Hoshe te ho ho kar Cheto...... 49.

The good will seem to suffer and will be mocked at. 50) Eji Tare gat mahain but khana vaparshe, Moman na man kathan thashe aapar Te mas che mase khana mahain aavshe, Dharm saraae aavethi paap na jashe lagaar Cheto...... 50. Places of worship will turn into places of sin; people's hearts will harden and hardly once in six months will they visit Jamatkhana. Thus no sins will be forgiven. 51) Eji Aeva aadharm jyare aavshe, Tare dhori chare te dhartino bhar, Tare tharthar dharti dhujshe, Pap karm noon nahi koie shomar Cheto...... 51.

Those who will not trust Ali and will continue to go the way they will and will think their own intellect to be superior, these people will never have internal peace. 61) Eji Sansar sagharo aem thayo, Sat guru ji kahe te ketlik war, Murkh mayani jar ma(n), Saho koie bur muae re gemar Cheto...... 61. Momins, the whole creation was thus created and I do not repeat that; yet the unthinking person is so involved in his worldly affairs that he cannot surface from this affair to realize all this. 62) Eji Ali jini sevaae thi chukshe, Teno bheth paryore avtar, Chetanhara tame chetjo, Man kho nahi aave biju vaar Cheto...... 62.

That scripture says that Brahma shoulders the burden of everyone. 76) Eji Brahma jina sut tene kahieae Je koie pale dharm aachar Dan liae teto safal kari Tene mathe nahi reshe bar Cheto...... 76. The true followers of Brahma are the ones who follow the religion properly.

"What was your intention for sending him the milk and why did he put a flower in the milk you sent him?" 265) Eji Tare te Bavdin boliya, Ae mahain tame samjiya nahi lagaar, Ame aene aem kahi mukiyoon, Onch mahain oliya che bohot aapar Cheto...... 265. Bahauddin replied: Though you did not understand, my son, it was my way of telling that there are too many high people in this city (i.e. no room for Pir). 266) Eji Tare aene aem kahi mukyoon, Dudh mathe phoolnoon kahen baar, Aevi rite ame ahin raheshoon, Teno senso ma dharjo lagaar Cheto...... 266. Pir's reply by placing a flower was that, "I'll stay without interfering with anybody, just as this flower floats in milk." 267) Eji Shekh sadar vari puchiyoon, Aa khak no te sho vichar, teni vaat te bahar mahi kari, Bavdin na man mahain te opne kahar Cheto...... 267. Sheik and Sadur asked for explanation of the sand that was sent. Bahauddin did not reply, but he became very restless. 268) Eji So sone thanke besh rahya, Bavdin ne senso nahi mate lagaar, Teto antre ade khaie aane ghani Teto aapana mazahab noon israr Cheto..... 268. Every person finds his level and Bahauddin is no exception. He was a jealous individual and began working against our religion. 269) Eji Teto tran yarne mane nahi Teto Ali nabi noon parivar Te dinthi cheta pariya Je din Ali nabijini var Cheto..... 269. Bahauddin did not believe in Ali or Nabi. 270) Eji Te mahain andha na jane aetloon Je panjtan sarikha kem thashe tran yaar Jene kudrat mahain thi kitab otariya Bijoon aaviya duldul ne zulfiqar Cheto.... 270. It's like a blind man who cannot see that Panjtan Pak is the cause of these http://www.ismaili.net/granths/chetwanb.html 03/06/2010
