Chiragh-i Rawshan

Rasam Chiragh Rawshan - Luminous Lamp - A Practical Tawil

Our Madhhab is a ta'wili madhhab and Pir Nasir-i Khusraw believed is a ta'wil, therefore he according to the will of the Imam, introduced Chiragh-i Rawshan into his circle of da'wat, which had already been started on a limited and special scale but was about to discontinue. It is said that, first it was established briefly by the Holy Prophet himself of the death of one of his sons, as mentioned in the Chiragh-namah

Chiragh awwal ba-dast-i Mustafa bud
Dalilash ba Aliyy-i Murtaza bud

Chiragh was first in the hand of Mustafa
And its dalil (a wooden spatula) was with Murtaza Ali (a.s)

Chiragh-r Roash is called a practical ta'wil in the sense that it is a wisdom-filled practice in which the purpose is to reflect upon the unique and key wisdoms of the verse of Misbah (Lamp, 34:35), which is; "Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth (of the personal world); His light is as a niche in which is a lamp, and the lamp is in a glass, the glass as though it were a glittering starl it is lit from a blessed tree, an Olive neither of the east nor of the west, the oil of which would well-nigh gibe light though no fire touched it, light upon light; Allah guides to His light whom He pleases; and Allah strikes parables from men; and Allah all things does know."
