Husaini message
Many momins praise the Ahlulbayt(as) as the Sainat Najat – ‘Ark of Noah/Salvation ‘,which is undoubtedly true .However the mistake that is made ,is that they do not’board’ the Ark of salvation but only eulogise it from afar .It can offer salvation providedyou board it ie go wherever it leads you to & not act as per your own will .

It is the time of year when I remember and grieve for the loss of Imam Husayn (AS) and in remembering the events of Karbala and His (AS) martrydom I realise the importance of the power of Islam and true faith. It also makes me realise I have to stand up for what’s right and never take oppression.  Share your Views

Message On Birth anniversary Of Imam Al-Qaem(A.J)

Message On Birth anniversary Of Imam Al-Qaem(A.J)

On this auspicious Birth anniversary of Our Living Imam mahdi (AJ ).I offer my sincere greetings to all those who love our beloved twelfth h Imam Mahdi (AJ) and work for his coming, asking the Almighty (swt) to keep you all always happy in this life under the flag of the awaited one, and in the hereafter through his intercession (ameen).

When Imam Mahdi reappears, he will rule with justice, and no one will be able to discriminate against another. Roads and paths will become secure, the Earth will bring out its bounties, all rights will be returned to their rightful owners, and no follower of a religion will remain until he becomes a Muslim and professes his faith.” Bihar al-Anwar

Islamic scholars, based on the infallible sayings, are of the opinion that the sign of Mahdi (AS) is that he shall be harsh with rulers, generous with people in distributing wealth, and gentle with the helpless in easing their pain.

Hence, not only Shia people but all people throughout the world expect him day and night.

al-Mahdi (AS) will come in the last days to make a universal Government. Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v2, p86, v9, pp 74-75

The Messenger of Allah said: “The world will not perish until a man among the Arabs appears whose name matches my name.” Sunni reference: Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v9, p74

Of all the various ways and methods to prepare for his appearance, the author as a sociologist is of the opinion that “supplication” or “dua” is the most important way.

One of these treasures which believers and those anxious for the reappearance of the righteous and universal government of Imam Mahdi (AS) have set their hearts upon is the glorious “Nudba” supplication. They renew their allegiance with their Master during fixed occasions and hold emotional gatherings where it is recited.

Lamentation (Nudba) and waiting for the meeting with His Holiness and the end of his occultation, praying to hasten his reappearance and expressing regret about the turbulent and oppressive conditions of the modern world (the period of the major occultation) are lessons which the Shia have learned from their infallible Imams (AS) and their behavior is a pattern for their partisans.

According to Shia scholars, recitation of this supplication is recommended as mustahab (highly advised) on four Islamic major festivals (ids): Friday, Fitr (holiday marking the end of Ramadan), Adha, and Ghadir (the day on which Imam Ali {AS} was appointed to be the real successor of the Holy Prophet {S}).

Quran proclaims ‘O you who believe! Be patient and excel in patience and maintain contact, and be careful of your duty towards Allah, that you may be successful.’(Surah Ale Imran, Verse 199)

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) by way of elucidation of the above verse narrates,‘Maintain a special affinity with your Imam.’(Noorus Saqalain, vol. 1 pg. 426)

What is a duty of a Shi’ite? What responsibilities does he have? Truly, are we reckoned among the real followers of His Eminence (Imam al Mahdi)? If we study the lives of the devout Shi’ites (followers) of the Holy Imams before the Twelfth Imam, and consider their sacrifices without the slightest hesitation, we shall at once awake from our neglectful slumber and realize our weakness and guilt.

How long must I wait for you, O my Master! And how long and with which word should I praise you, and what secret talk should I use with you? Is there any helper with whom I may prolong my lamentation and weeping? Is there a way, O Son of Ahmad (S), through which you may be met? Will you see us gathered around you and you are leading all the people? So, convey to him our greetings and salutations, and increase his honor because of this (greeting), O Lord.”

Imam is a confidant, an aide, a sympathetic father, an affectionate brother, and a caring mother who nurtures her infant.” (Al-Kafi vol. 1, pg. 200)

Imam (a.s.) asserts,

‘We are never neglectful of your guardianship nor are we ever unmindful of your remembrance.’(Behaarul Anwaar, vol. 53, pg. 176)

O Allah! I ask You for the sake of Your representative and Your Proof, Master of Time, that You help me through him in all my affairs. And Protect me through him from the difficulties of every torturer, dissident and rebel. (Please) help me through him for my efforts are exhausted. And Protect me from every enemy, grief, sorrow, debt, my children and all my family members, my brothers and my close ones, whose deeds do harm unto me. Aamin, Lord of the Worlds.(Behaarul Anwaar, vol. 94, pg. 34)

O Inheritor of Hasan, Successor, Proof! O awaited Qaim, Mahdi! O son of God’s Messenger! O proof of God over His creatures! O our Lord and Master! We turn to thee, ask thy intercession, and seek access through thee to God. We place before thee our needs. O thou who has standing with God! Intercede for us with God!’

May Allah hasten his reappearance.

Is Imam (a.t.f.s.) Observing Us?

Is Imam (a.t.f.s.) Observing Us?

The belief in the Imamat of Ahle Bait (a.s) is the basis of all (other) Islamic beliefs and laws. It is on the basis of this belief that one can comprehend the accurate and genuine concept of Tauheed. The real grandeur and magnificence of Prophethood (Nabuwwat) is reflected only in the mirror of this belief. Actions are correctly performed under the guidance of this doctrine and it forms the basis of acceptance of all actions. The one whose heart is devoid of this belief will be in a great loss on the Day of Judgment. Salvation and entry in paradise is restricted to those who subscribe to this belief.

However, this belief does not imply that we only believe in the existence of our twelve Imams (a.s) and don’t consider them as our guides and role models. The very fact that we consider these venerable personalities as our Imams (a.s) signifies that we accept them as our guides at every step and tread on their path without any questions. In all facets of our lives- individual or social, commerce issues or complex personal relations, or those dealing with family life and the worship of Allah and gaining His proximity- we should adopt those principles which are enumerated by these honorable personalities as the aim of our life and try to emulate them.

This belief also demands that we acknowledge and are convinced that our Imams (a.s) are observing our actions and none of our deeds are concealed from them.

Witness to our actions

Imam Sadiq (a.s) was asked about the meaning of the following Quranic verse:

‘How will be the condition on the day of judgment when We shall bring forth a witness from every nation and We will make you (O Prophet) as a witness upon them.’

(Surah Nisa, Verse 41)

Imam (a.s) replied,

‘This verse refers particularly to the nation of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). In every era an Imam from among us is a witness upon them and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is a witness upon us.’

(Al-Kafi, vol. 1, p.190, tradition 1)

Another person asked Imam Sadiq (a.s) about the following Quranic verse in which Allah says:

‘In this way have We made you as the middle nation so that you be a witness on the people.”

(Surah Baqarah, Verse 143)

Imam (a.s) replied:

“We are the ‘middle nation’. We are the witnesses of Allah upon the creation and His Proof upon them.’

(Ibid, tradition 2)

From these traditions, it becomes clear that our Imam (a.s) witnesses our deeds. In order to become a witness, it is necessary that the person should have comprehensive knowledge about the thing that he witnesses. Hence when we say that our Imam (a.s) is a witness to our actions, it means that he has encompassing knowledge of all our actions.

Deeds presented before Imam (a.s.)

A person by the name of Abdullah bin Aabaan az-Ziyaat was in the presence of Imam Reza (a.s). He requested Imam (a.s) that he (a.s) should pray for his well being and that of his family. Imam (a.s) replied, ‘Am I not doing like that? I swear by Allah that your deeds are presented to us every morning and evening.’ Abdullah says ‘I was surprised (to hear that our deeds are presented before Imam (a.s). Imam (a.s) is at one place while he has the information of the entire world!)’ Imam (a.s) replied:

‘Have you not read the verse of Quran which says

‘Then do your (good) deeds. Allah and His prophet and the believers are a witness to your actions.”

(Surah Taubah, Verse 105)

I swear by Allah (the word) ‘believers’ (in the verse) refers to Ameerul Mo’mineen (a.s).”

(Al – Kafi, vol.1 p. 219, tradition 4)

Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s) used to say,

‘Why are you people troubling the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)?’

One person asked, ‘How is it that we are troubling the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.)?’ (i.e. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) is not amongst us, then how can we hurt or upset him). Imam (a.s) replied,

‘Are you not aware that your actions are placed before him (s.a.w.a.)? When he (s.a.w.a.) witnesses a sin among your deeds then he (s.a.w.a.) gets distressed and sorrowful. Don’t make the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) unhappy. Instead, try to make him (s.a.w.a.) cheerful.’

(Ibid., tradition 3)

Imam (a.s.) recognizes each one of us by our names

People are familiar with only those individuals whom they see and recognize and the majority consists of those individuals whom we don’t recognize. Therefore a smart and cunning person can deceive others who don’t really know him very well. However, none can deceive the Imams (a.s), because the Imams (a.s) recognize each and every one of us by our names.

Imam Reza (a.s) once wrote in one of his letters,

‘Hazrat Mohammed Mustafa (s.a.w.a.) is the Trusted One (Ameen) of Allah among His creatures. After his (s.a.w.a.) demise, we are his inheritors and are the trusted ones of Allah on this earth. We know who among you will be involved in which examination and calamity and where you will die. We know the lineage of the Arabs. We also know who will be born on the religion of Islam. If we see someone then we immediately recognize how strong is his faith and the amount of hypocrisy in him. And we have the names of our every Shia along with the names of his father.’

(Ibid., p. 223, tradition 1)

Thus simply calling ourselves as Shias is not sufficient. Instead we should beseech Allah that our names should be included in the list of those Shias who are with our Imam (a.t.f.s.)

Imam (a.t.f.s.) has information of each and everything

Janabe Mufazzal (r.a) once asked Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s) ‘May I be sacrificed for you! Is it possible that Allah makes the obedience of a person obligatory on everyone but conceals from that person the knowledge of the heavens?’

Imam (a.s) replied,

‘No. Allah is more kind, sympathetic and generous upon His servants than that He should make the obedience of an individual obligatory on everyone but should conceal the news of the heavens from him’.

(Ibid., p. 261, tradition 3)

In another tradition, Imam Mohammad Baqir (a.s) declares,

‘Allah is much higher and greater than this that He makes the obedience to someone as obligatory on everyone else, but conceal from that person the knowledge of the heavens and the earth’.

(Ibid., p. 262, tradition 6)

In the light of these traditions it becomes clear that every morning and evening, the news of the heavens and the earth is presented before our Imam (a.s). In this way, he is aware of the minutest details of our actions.

Imam (a.s.) is more compassionate and tender than our father

Not only are our Imams (a.s) aware of all our deeds and actions, but they are also affected by our pains and sufferings. The following incident underlines this fact and shows us how much our Imams (a.s) value and cherishes their Shias.

A person by the name of Rumailah narrates: ‘In the days of Hazrat Ali (a.s) I was severely ill. On Friday I recovered a bit. I thought to myself – how nice would it be if I have my bath today and recite namaz behind Ali (a.s). Hence I got up and after taking a bath, went to the mosque. While Ali (a.s) was delivering the Friday sermon, my condition again deteriorated. After namaz Ali (a.s) went to a place by the name of ‘Qasr’, I too accompanied him. He (a.s) said to me,

‘O Rumailah! Why are you restless?’

I narrated to him (a.s) about my illness and explained to him my condition. Then Imam (a.s) said,

‘O Rumailah! When a believer becomes ill then we too are affected by his illness. If someone becomes sorrowful and distressed then we too become sorrowful. If someone prays then we say ‘Aameen’ for his supplication. And when he becomes silent (i.e. he stops praying) then we pray for him.’

Rumailah asked Imam (a.s) “My master! Are you referring about those believers who are staying in this place of ‘Qasr’? What about those who stay in the different corners of the earth?’ Imam (a.s) replied,

‘O Rumailah! There is no believer – in the east or in the west – who is hidden from us’.

(Basaaer al-Darajaat; part 16, tradition 1)

Through this incident it becomes evident that our Imams (a.s) hold their Shias dearer than a father holds his son. Thus when Imams (a.s) love us so much, then the least that we can do is perform such actions that are a cause of happiness for them and refrain from those deeds which anger and upset them.

A signed letter (Tawqee) from Imam Mahdi (a.s.)

Now let us pay attention to this tawqee (a ‘Tawqee’ is a letter signed by Imam (a.s) himself in the time of his occultation) through which we learn that Imam’s (a.s.) knowledge encompasses all our actions.

Every word of the blessed Tawqee addressed to Shaikh Mufeed (r.a) spells out this fact. Those people, who in the time of major occultation are serving the religion of Islam, are defending the laws and beliefs, are taking care of the weak and helpless Shias have been addressed by the one who is the cause of the existence of this Universe , Hazrat Wali-e-Asr (a.t.f.s.) – as “the brother with an upright character and a learned and intelligent friend”. This form of address itself is a proof that our Imam (a.t.f.s.) is aware of our deeds and our character. Imam (a.t.f.s.) (may our lives be sacrificed for him ) states,

“Even though we are residing away from the settlements of oppressors – as Allah has destined this in the best interest of the Shias – yet our knowledge encompasses all your information. Nothing is hidden from us. We are conscious of the problems and the degradation which all of you are enduring right now. The reason for all this is that you are indulging in all those (prohibited) things from which your elders used to abstain and you have abandoned the promise and the pledge that was taken from you as if you have never ever known this promise.”

(These words of Imam (a.t.f.s.) reflect his remorse on our heedlessness, negligence and disgraceful actions. But the words that follow are an indication of his fatherly love and his compassion.) Imam (a.t.f.s.) continues

“We are not negligent of your affairs and neither do we forget your remembrance. If it would have been so, then calamities and difficulties would have encircled you and the enemies would have annihilated you.”

At the end of this Tawqee, Imam (a.t.f.s.) continues,

“Then each one of you should perform such actions which will bring you close to our love and should abstain from those deeds which are a cause of our displeasure and anger. This is because our reappearance will occur unexpectedly and at that time your repentance will serve no purpose. Your remorse and your regret will not protect you from our chastisement.”

(Al-Ehtejaaj of Sheikh Tabarsi, vol. 2, p. 497, 498)

Another Tawqee

In another Tawqee to Janab Sheikh Mufeed (r.a), Imam (a.t.f.s.) declares,

“May Allah grant the ‘Taufeeq’ (grace) to our Shias for His obedience. If our Shias would have remained united and would have been steadfast in fulfilling their pledge, there would not have been any delay in our meeting with them. They would have been blessed with our meeting and our presence through their recognition and their truthfulness. But the thing which has delayed our reappearance and has distanced us from them is the news that we get about their deeds which we dislike and don’t expect from them.”

(Ibid., p. 499)

There is one very important thing that is highlighted from the above discussion – the Imams (a.s.) (particularly the Imam (a.s.) of our time) are aware of our each and every movement. Nothing in this world is concealed from their divine eyes. In the supplication on Fridays related to Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) we recite:

“Peace be upon you, O the eyes of Allah among His creation!

In the presence of an Emperor

If a blind individual stands in the presence of a king then he will observe the same etiquette of honor and respect due to a king, which are applicable to the one who is actually seeing the king (even though the blind man is unable to see the king.) This is because the blind man perceives the presence of the king and realizes that he is standing before a king. He himself is unable to see the king, but he is convinced that the king is observing him.

The situation is similar during the time of the major occultation. A believer is unable to see his Imam (a.t.f.s.) but he is certain that Imam (a.t.f.s) is observing him. Due to his conviction, he is always aware of the fact that he is standing in Imam’s (a.t.f.s.) presence. He considers Imam (a.t.f.s.) to be a witness to his each and every action. In Dua-e-Nudbah we recite

“May I be sacrificed for you! You are that concealed one who is constantly present in all our gatherings!”

True faith and certainty demands that we always realize that we are in the presence of Imam (a.t.f.s.) and hence maintain the decorum of honor and respect.

O Allah! For the sake of Your immaculate, infallible friends (a.s) and their sincere followers, grant us such upright faith and perfect certainty. Aameen!
