In one or two narrations, they named [Al- Nafs] âMuá¸¥ammad ibn al- Haá¹£anâ. But because they are weak in terms of document, they arenât reliable.
In most narrations, he wasnât pointed to by his real name. He was just pointed to, by the title or kind of that. They are such as:
1-Â Â Â Al- Nafs: This refers to the very Nafs al- Zakiyyah.Â
ZakÅ«t [literally] means purity, growth and evolution. Therefore, Zakiyyah probably has two meaning:
1-Â Â Â Pure (which means, a person who hasnât committed sin since her/ his birthday).
2-Â Â Â A perfect person, learned and eminent.
To confirm the first meaning, SalmÄn narrated, âBe aware! A person with a pure and innocent Nafs [ego/soul] will come, who will be killed between Rukn and MaqÄm
He will send two different armies to Median and Iraq, coincidently! Well, ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr)âs governing station is of special importance for him. Hence, he will rush into Shia- inhabited cities of KÅ«fah, and his huge attacks will strike the people!
[Many] peopleâs concern is their bellies and passions. Yet, they donât care how they earn livelihood [is it legit or not], and how to calm the passion! They care about colorful foods and drinks. And they have got used to be proud of their clothes and ranks! They make firm and beautiful palaces, [but they] teach each other the absurd lessons!
When Hurricane Katrina happened, the USA government gave 4 million servings [to the stricken]. But in ArbaËeen 200 million servings has been distributed [to the walkers], which are all granted by the benefactors!
1-Â Â Â Oppression will be extreme; the oppressor will be bloodthirsty like injurious wolves. Also homicide will increase! Some will kill others because of enmity.
Some will gather together to disperse [the people], and will be divided into sections to destroy unity.Â
They will be so busy in dispersion, opposition and rebellion that their children and generation will become sinners and do forbidden things!
They [the scholars] believe that one type of crying in Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh)âs rite, is crying of fear.
It means that a person should fear, lest s/ he is among the inviters who wrote the letters and said,
“Our garden are ready, our streams are flowing and our farms are fresh and green and we are just looking forward to you [Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh)] to come here.â
Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.
Abu Basire1 has narrated from ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh), that His Excellency stated:
Imam Ali (pbuh) stated: “I give you an example; [imagine] an individual has some wheat. s/ he winnows them in order to sift and thresh, then s/ he stores the wheat in a room with doors closed…
After some times when s/ he opens the room, he finds out the wheat has been infested(with worms [The special worm, damaging wheat is called âweevilâ!])
