    Iran’s labour minister arrives in Shanghai Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s minister of labour Ali Rabiei as the head of special investigation committee on the Iranian oil tanker incident arrives in Shanghai, China’s central coast. After the Iranian oil tanker collided with a Chinese freighter and burst into flames off the Chinese coast on January 6 and the tanker’s 32 crew members were missing, Ali Rabiei traveled to Shanghai to pursue the latest condition of the oil tanker and the measures that have taken about it. He is due to hold talks with Chinese officials about the accelerating of putting out the fire and searching for missing crew members from the tanker.

  5. The pattern continue from what i saw and hear in my life. Protest (famously with reason injustice in economic and then turn into violence and looting), sniper who kills (perhaps by private sniper or government sniper). It was happen in Tiananment Square of China, Jakarta of Indonesia, Tripoli of Libya, Damascus of Suriah etc. I do not know the national endurance of Iran against intruder. The basic ideology of Nabi Muhammad SAW in Iran shall give strong national stability and shall hit back to its (unreasonable/stupid protest) trigger. Only stupid, imbecil human who reject my notion. http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/01/02/547620/Trump-again-expresses-support-for-rioters-in-Iran http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/01/03/547744/CIA-and-Mossad-have-orchestrated-recent-protests-in-Iran-Analyst

    Anyone gone or going to Karbala for Ashura? My parents and brother left yesterday.
  14. Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah. Recently, a profile which I am sure everyone is aware of, that was defending YH and HA presented me with a set of Hadith against revolution before the Qaim: Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 310, Hadeeth number 483: Omar ibn Handhala says, al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam said, “There are five signs before the rise of the Hujja ‘alaihissalam, the heavenly call, Sufyani, the sinking of the earth, the murder of the pure soul and Yamani. I asked, may I be your ransom, If anyone from your House should make an uprise (khuruj: uprise or revolt to topple the government), should we make an uprise along with him? He said, No. If you are a Shi’a, then remember, it is prohibited until you hear the Saiha and that Yamani has appeared, to make an uprise. That is unless the MI6 and CIA had paid Omar ibn Handhala to narrate this hadeeth. Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 264 Hadeeth number: 382 Our master Syed al-Sajjideen ‘alaihissalam said, “By Allah, no one makes an uprise from us before the Rise of the Awaited One, salamullahi ‘alaih, except that he will be like a nestling (baby bird), who flew off his nest before its wings grew, and kids pick him and play with him. Ibid # 383: Says al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, “O’ Sadir, stay at your home and be a rug of your house (as motionless and passive as a rug of your house). Don’t move and remain absolutely silent so long the earth and the sky are silent (sinking of the earth has not occurred and the heavenly call/saiha has not been heard). When you hear that Sufyani has risen, come to us, even if you have to walk. Al-Kafi vol 5, pg 22 Hadeeth Number 2: Says the Imam ‘alaihissalam, “Make pilgrimage to this House [the Ka’ba]. Does not each one of you like to be [safe] at his house, have his family prosper through his generosity, and wait for OUR RULE. If he should live to see Our Rule, he will be like the ones who were with the Rasool of Allah salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wassalam at the battle of Badr. If he should die, while waiting for Our Rule, he will be like the close companions of the Awaited One ‘alaihissalam who will be with him at his tent”… Al-ibid pg 23, Hadeeth number 3: Bashir al-Dahhan: I said to al-Imam as-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, I saw you in my dream and I said to you in my dream, Fighting under the banner of someone other than the Infallible Imam, appointed by Allah, is haram like eating rotten dead animal, drinking blood, and pork. And you said in my dream, “It is indeed so”. Al-Imam al-Sadiq alaihissalam replied [in wakefulness], “It is indeed so, it is indeed so”. I can myself comment that some Hadith before Imam al-Sadiq about the Qaim refer to Imam al-Sadiq themselve as Shaykh Hamza Sodagar pointed out. As for the rest of the Hadith's I contacted the office of Grand Ayatullah Nasr Makarem Shirazi (H) on the issue and received the following answer: Answer: We also believe that any uprising in the name of Imam Mahdi before His reappearance is condemned to failure and belongs to the Tyrant. But if an uprising is for the sake of Allah and in order to pave the ground for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS) and to implement the goals of Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS), then it is approved and is consistent with jurisprudential certainties and the rulings of Enjoining good and forbidding wrong. According to the certain documents "Islam without government," is a disfigured Islam which is free of content, and in fact is an Islam without Islam. Again, a group resist opposing the issue of Islamic government. The source of this opposition is, in fact, two things including mental aspect, and the aspect of narrations. The mental aspect is that, they have a bitter memory of the governments and they believe that in the current situation no one is able to form a divine government and implement Islamic justice. But in terms of narrative, they follow some narrations in this field which are not restricted to what you mentioned. The concept of narrations is that "every flag, which is set up as a government before the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS), is either a flag of delusions or condemned to failure." Pay attention to the interpretations of these traditions and they are as follows: 1. It means the uprisings which are carried out without the permission of infallible Imams (AS) or religious authorities or the general deputies of the Imams at the time of occultation. 2. It means the uprisings which are carried out to invite oneself and not to invite to the goals of the infallible Imams (peace be upon them), as mentioned in many narrations. The uprisings meant here is restricted to the ones that there was no preparation for such uprisings. So, the Imams (AS) talked in this way to prevent these premature or immature uprisings. Wishing you all the success Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi’s Office / Istifta’at section Allahuma Sali Ala Muhammad Wa Alee Muhammad.
  15. Iran's Leader issues 2017 Hajj pilgrimage message http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2017/08/31/533516/leader-hajj-khamenei-message
  16. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/aug/18/saudi-arabia-talks-alliance-rebuild-iraq-return-arab-fold It seems a serious hole in the Shia world is in the making. Iraq is drifting towards its Arab neighbour Saudi Arabia, leaving Iran further isolated. The article says that Muqtada Sadr has long been a critic of Iran's influence. And Saudi Arabia is opening a consulate in Najaf. All this is very ominous of a greater Wahabi influence in the Muslim world and beyond. I personally think Iraq should move closer to KSA ONLY under the condition that they restore Jannat ul Baqi and agree to joint control of Mecca and Medina by all Muslim nations. What do you guys think?

  18. English Pakistani Sunni scholars pilgrimage Imam Reza holy shrine (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Twenty Sunni scholars from Pakistan living in England went on pilgrimage of Razavi Holy Shrine in Razavi Karamat Ten Days Celebration. According to Astan News, head of this group said, “A 20-person group including prominent and effective religious scholars residing in England visited Mashhad and Razavi Holy Shrine”. Ja’far Najm stated, “After visiting Razavi Holy Shrine, the group met with Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Imami, Educational Assistant of Razavi University of Islamic Sciences, and got familiar with activities, fields of study, establishment method and cultural activities of this university”. He recognized Imam Reza’s (A.S.) Holy Shrine as a center for unity of Muslims and added, “In addition to receive spiritual emanations, pilgrimage of Sunni Muslims in this holy place consolidates Muslims’ unity”. On the sideline of his visitation in Razavi Holy Shrine, Seyyed Amir Hossein Naqvi, another member of the group stated, “Grandeur and vastness of this holy place is exemplary and unexplainable. Devotion and affection toward Imam Reza (A.S.) is like an elixir which close our hearts to each other, despite of our different Islamic sects”. Birmingham’s Friday leader said that western countries try to tarnish Islam’s face by forming and supporting Wahhabism and Isis. He also added, “Unity among Sunni and Shia Muslims has to be followed seriously so that we can resist against evil plots of the enemy”. “Thanks to God, I have had the success of visiting Razavi Shrine for a few times. However, I am very happy today because my current visitation is happening in Karamat Ten Days Celebration”, he stated. Qur’an museum was introduced by Birmingham Friday Leader as one of the most equipped museums in the Islamic world. He also added, “This museums’ Qur’ans can be found nowhere and it has perfectly shown greatness of Islamic culture to the people of the world”. It is worth mentioning that the group visited Astan Quds Razavi’s physical education institute on the first day of its presence in Mashhad. It should also be mentioned that during their presence in Mashhad, members of this group also met with Ayatollah Noori Hamedani. http://en.abna24.com/news/iran/english-pakistani-sunni-scholars-pilgrimage-imam-reza-holy-shrine_845238.html
  19. Young Greek teacher converts to Islam in Razavi Holy Shrine (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Coincident with the birthday of Hazrat Masoumeh (A.S.), the Greek teacher converted to Islam in the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (A.S.). The young Greek teacher influenced by his Muslim students converted to Islam. "I grew up in a Christian religious family and I always had questions that I did not find their answers," Gracious, 34, from Philadelphia, said about changing his religion. "Many students in my schools are Muslim immigrants, and relationship with them caused that a window to the facts opened for me", he continued. Stating that the lifestyle and behavior of these children gave me a great lesson, the Muslim convert added, "This friendly relationship with the students brought me a lot of advantages and made me familiar with the religion of Islam and the Shi’ite in particular.” "With respect that most of these immigrants have migrated illegally to Greece, they live in difficult conditions yet they keep trying to learn," said Gracious. The Greek young man emphasized, “This effort is rooted in their deep inner religious beliefs and their faith in God, the One for whom they perform prayer every day to talk with, and fast in the hot and long days of the summer.” Noting that Christians have a specific day and place to speak with God and pray, he added, "But Muslims do not have special time or place to worship, unlike Christians who worship only in the church, and they can supplicate with God at any moment and this is the greatest advantage of Islam.” "I believe Islam is a peaceful religion and tries to have a good relationship with all", the Greek teacher stated. He expressed satisfaction that the Greek government has promised to construct a mosque in Greece, and added, “Despite the opposition of the Greek Orthodox Church, I hope that the doors of the mosque will be opened to the Greek Muslims in the future.” "I'm glad that on such a day and place I converted to Shi’ite Islam. I ask Reza (A.S.) for a beautiful and peaceful life. Noting that today the extensive domination of media over the world does not allow for keeping relationship with other countries, Muhammad Jawad Hasheminejad said, “The imperialism-running media do not allow people to have good relations with each other; yet, the same media have enabled the people of countries to communicate with each other and learn about one another’s culture.” He stressed that in this turbulent space, the media can be an effective means of showing the facts to other countries and revealing the reality of Islam to all. It is notable that at the end of the ceremony, a volume of Qur’an and several religious books were donated to this Muslim convert by the Management of the Non-Iranian Pilgrims of Astan Quds Razavi. http://en.abna24.com/news/iran/young-greek-teacher-converts-to-islam-in-razavi-holy-shrine_844474.html
