What you are expected to do Imam Sadiq( pbuh) said: I don’t like to see any youth among you [the Shiites], but of 2 types: […]

When His Excellency ʿAlī (pbuh) showed those brevities and sacrifices in in the Battle of Uhud1, Gabriel called,”الاسیف الّا دوالفقار، ولا فتی الّا علی”2 And the people who were present, heard it from the sky…

Zayd ibn Wahab3 told Ibn Masūd4, ‘ʿAlī resistance in Uhud was the matter of marvel!’

Ibn Masud reacted, ‘You are not the only one who wonders! Even the other angels were verily marveled! Haven’t you heard that while he was ascending to sky, Gabriel called, “الاسیف الّا دوالفقار، ولا فتی الّا علی?!

Although there is not any available, and clearly explicit biography of Imām Mahdī (mgehr)’s mother, based on the well- known assumption_ from some narrations_ she played the role of a slave who had been captured in the war, in order to join Imām Askarī (pbuh)’s respected family at last. [It had been planned before, by Imām Askarī (pbuh)’s father; Imām Hādī (pbuh) in order to save her. Then she married Imām Askarī, as she had dreamt it in a heavenly dream.]

With his martyrdom,

Imam Huṣayn (pbuh) disgraced Umayyad government. And this led to its destruction at last.

Likewise, by his emergence, Imām Zamān (mgehr) will cause a disgrace in all of the oppressing government in the world.

The objective of Nafs al- Zakiyyah

There isn’t any valid account of “The goal of Nafs al- Zakiyyah by his activities which will lead him to martyrdom”! Therefore, the following cases aren’t conclusive:

1-    He will be sent to Mecca by Imām al -ˈAsre [Imām Zamān (mgehr)], in order to give ultimatum1. So, they won’t later have any excuse not to help the Imām (mgehr).

Al- Nafs al- Zakiyyah’s name and title

December 16, 2019 0

In one or two narrations, they named [Al- Nafs] “Muḥammad ibn al- Haṣan”. But because they are weak in terms of document, they aren’t reliable.

In most narrations, he wasn’t pointed to by his real name. He was just pointed to, by the title or kind of that. They are such as:

1-    Al- Nafs: This refers to the very Nafs al- Zakiyyah. 

The meaning of Al- Nafs al- Zakiyyah

Zakūt [literally] means purity, growth and evolution. Therefore, Zakiyyah probably has two meaning:

1-    Pure (which means, a person who hasn’t committed sin since her/ his birthday).

2-    A perfect person, learned and eminent.

To confirm the first meaning, Salmān narrated, “Be aware! A person with a pure and innocent Nafs [ego/soul] will come, who will be killed between Rukn and Maqām

The one who will revenge for Imam Ḥusayn (pbuh)’s blood, will not exceed the [just] limit in slaying [of the enemies]

… And whoever is slain unjustly, we have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided. (Holy Qurʾān, Surah 17, Verse 33)

[In this regard], there is a Ḥadīth which reads: The [above] verse is about Imam Ḥusayn (pbuh) and Imam Zamān (mgehr); the deceased is Imam Ḥusayn (pbuh) and his avenger is Qa’im [Imam Mahdī (mgehr)].
