Peace and comfort are of the characteristics which belong to right life

June 10, 2024 0

We can be a role model for people of the world, by paving the path of Imām Huṣayn (pbuh); that is, we can live in such a way that people express, “The followers of Imām Huṣayn (pbuh) are so chivalrous, calm, purely and delighted!” Tranquility and comfort are of the characteristics that belong to the true life. Having a more comfortable life is not only a personal benefit, but also it is a social, historical, and Mahdavī [related to Imām Zamān (mGehr)] responsibility.

Once, Imām Ṣādiq (pbuh) stated to his companions, ‘Can you recognize whether the disaster you suffer, will last long or not?’ The companions said, ‘No!’ The Imām reacted, ‘whenever reading is inspired [and you perform it] to each of you, it means the disaster doesn’t last [and it will be]!’   (Kāfī, Vol. 2, P. 470)

2-    Why are the healthy people expected to read prayers as the sick people?

Imām Zamān (mGehr)’s duties while he is unknown are of two types, based on Sayyid Muḥammad Ṣadr:

1-    Protecting his Shiites and friends and observing their social relations with other people. Also he observes them, since they are supposed to teach Islamic taught as good as possible, and implement Islamic laws.

May 30, 2024 0

Regarding the issue, Ahl al Bayt1 (pbu th) presented some reasons for The Occultation:

1-    Protecting the Imām (mGehr)’s life from the enemies’ dangers/ detriments.

[In this relation,] Zurārah2 narrated from Imām Ṣādiq (pbuh): 

إِنً لِلْقَائِمَ غَیْبَۀِ قَبْلُ ظُهُورِهَ قُلْتَ وَ لِمُ قَالَ یَخَافوِ أَوْمَىبِیَدِهِ إِلَىَ بَطْنِهُ قَالزُرَارَۀَ یَعْنِیاَلْقَتْل

Indeed, the Qā’im will be absent before his appearance.

Imām Alī (pbuh): Whoever sees small sufferings as big, will be affected by big sufferings

Amīr al Mu’menin (pbuh) stated,

مَن عظَّم صغارَ المصائبِ ابتلاهُ اللهُ بِکِبارِها

(Nahj al Balāghah, Sermon 448)

 “Whoever sees small sufferings as big, big sufferings will affect them.”

Allamah Baḥr al Ulūm (mGbhs) and Imām Zamān (mGehr)

Once I went to Kūfah Mosque. I saw my Sir, Walī Aşr (mGehr) was busy with worshipping. There, I stood up and said Hi. He answered my hello and ordered me to get nearer. I just went a little forward, because of the ethics. He stated, ‘Come nearer!’  And I just went a little forward. Again he stated, ‘Come nearer!’ When I got nearer, he affectionately embraced me and kept me tight on his chest.

Then, whatever The Almighty God wanted, was transferred to my heart and chest….

The review of the prophet hood claim of Aḥmad Basrī

May 29, 2024 0

Followers of Aḥmad Hamboushī claim that, according to authentic narrations from Ahl al-Bayt (pbu th), Imām Zamān (mgehr) had some children during his Major Occultation. One of whom is Aḥmad Ismail Hamboushī, whose one of the followers wrote, “I have proven in this research that, surly the narrations him are numerous, from the authentic documents, helpful for faiths”

Surely, I have proven in this research, that the narrations about the offspring are great in number, as well as having authentic document, which may be advantageous to the faith.

The debate among Shaykh Bahāʾi and Shāfiʿī about Her Majesty al-Zahrā (pbuh)

It has been mentioned in the book Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī that, the Holy Prophet (Pbuh&h) stated,

إِنَّ فَاطِمَةَ بَضْعَةٌ مِنِّی‏، مَنْ آذَاهَا فَقَدْ آذَانِی، وَ مَنْ غَاظَهَا فَقَدْ غَاظَنِی

Which means, “Fātimā (Pbuh) is part of me; whoever hurts her, they have hurt me. And whoever delights her, they have delighted me”.  (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī, publ. Dār Al-Jalīl, Beirut, V.7, P.47)

It also has been mentioned in four other pages that,

 “وَ خَرَجَتْ فاطِمَةُ مِنَ الدُّنْیا وَ هِیَ غاضِبَةٌ عَلَیْهِما”

Which means, Fātimā (Pbuh) passed away, while she was angry with them: Abū Bakr and ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab.  (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī, V.9, P.185, And Faḍāʾil Khamise men al-Sahāh al-Sitta, V.3, P.190).

So, according to the principles of Sunnites, how can these two narrations fit together?

A moment to ponder!

On the eve of Ramadan 17th, Prophet [Muḥammad] (pbuh&h) went to the Miʿrāj. The next morning, Satan came to his present and said:

O, the Messenger of God (pbuh&h)! The last night when you went to the Miʿrāj, in the fourth heaven, there was a broken and burnt pulpit on the left side (Baitul Ma’mur) that fell inverted. Did you know that pulpit, and did you find out whose it was?
