  3. Born Through the Dua of the Imam

    Born Through the Dua of the Imam Abu Ja'far Muhammad b. Ali b. al-Husayn b. Musa b. Babawayh, famously known as Shaykh al-Saduq (d. 381), is not a new name to Shi’i readers. He was a great Hadith scholar whose magnum opus Man La Yahdhuruhu al-Faqih is considered one of the Four books. Less commonly known about him is that he was born through the supplication of the Twelfth Imam. His father Ali b. al-Husayn was not granted off-spring from his first wife for many years. He decided to send a plea to the Imam via the Third Safir [Na'ib Khass] Abu al-Qasim b. al-Ruh, the reply was that he would be granted two male sons from a Daylami bond-woman and that both would grow up to become learned scholars of the religion. The aim of the post is to gather documentary evidence for this historical incident. I. وأخبرنا جماعة، عن أبي جعفر محمد بن علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه وأبي عبدالله الحسين بن علي أخيه قالا:حدثنا أبوجعفر محمد بن علي الاسود رحمه الله قال: سألني علي بن الحسن بن موسى بن بابويه رضي الله عنه بعد موت محمد بن عثمان العمري قدس سره أن أسأل أبا القاسم الروحي قدس الله روحه أن يسأل مولانا صاحب الزمان عليه السلام أن يدعو الله أن يرزقه ولدا ذكرا قال: فسألته فأنهى ذلك، ثم أخبرني بعد ذلك بثلاثة أيام أنه قد دعا لعلي بن الحسين رحمه الله فإنه سيولد له ولد مبارك ينفع الله به، وبعده أولاد ... قال: فولد لعلي بن الحسين رضي الله عنه تلك السنة إبنه محمد بن علي وبعده أولاد ... قال أبو جعفر بن بابويه: وكان أبو جعفر محمد بن علي الأسود كثيرا ما يقول لي - إذا رآني أختلف إلى مجلس شيخنا محمد بن الحسن بن الوليد رضي الله عنه وأرغب في كتب العلم وحفظه - ليس بعجب أن تكون لك هذه الرغبة في العلم وأنت ولدت بدعاء الإمام عليه السلام [Ghayba of al-Tusi] A large number – Abi Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali b. al-Husayn b. Musa b. Babawayh and his brother Abi Abdallah al-Husayn b. Ali – Abu Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali al-Aswad رحمه الله who said: Ali b. al-Husayn b. Musa b. Babawayh رضي الله عنه asked me - after the death of Muhammad b. Uthman al-Amri قدس سره - to request Aba al-Qasim al-Ruhi قدس سره to implore our Leader the Master of the Age عليه السلام to supplicate to Allah that He grant him a male child. He [al-Aswad] says: I asked him [al-Ruhi] that but he refused to do that. Then he informed me three days after that that he [the Imam] had supplicated for Ali b. al-Husayn رحمه الله and that ‘will be born for him a blessed son through whom Allah will benefit [many] and after him many sons’. He said: so was born to Ali b. al-Husayn رضي الله عنه that same year his son Muhammad b. Ali and after him other children … Abu Ja’far b. Babawayh (al-Saduq) said: Abu Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali al-Aswad would always say to me - when he sees me going to the Majlis of our Shaykh Muhammad b. al-Hasan b. al-Walid رضي الله عنه and after observing my motivation for the books of knowledge and mastery over them: it is not strange that you have this desire for knowledge for you were born because of the supplication of the Imam عليه السلام II. وقال أبو عبد الله بن بابويه: عقدت المجلس ولي دون العشرين سنة، فربما كان يحضر مجلسي أبو جعفر محمد بن علي الأسود، فإذا نظر إلى إسراعي في الأجوبة في الحلال والحرام يكثر التعجب لصغر سني ثم يقول لا عجب لأنك ولدت بدعاء الإمام عليه السلام [Ghayba of al-Tusi] Abu Abdallah b. Babawayh (the brother of al-Saduq) said: I began leading a study-session when I was not yet twenty years old. Abu Ja’far Muhammad b. Ali al-Aswad would sometimes attend these sessions. He would be greatly amazed after seeing my quickness in answering questions about the Halal and Haram despite my young age and would say: there is no surprise - for you were born through the supplication of the Imam عليه السلام III. قال أبو العباس أحمد بن علي بن نوح: وحدثني أبوعبدالله الحسين بن محمد بن سورة القمي حين قدم علينا حاجا قال: حدثني علي بن الحسن بن يوسف الصائغ القمي ومحمد بن أحمد بن محمد الصيرفي المعروف بابن الدلال وغيرهما من مشايخ أهل قم أن علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه كانت تحته بنت عمه محمد بن موسى بن بابويه فلم يرزق منها ولدا فكتب إلى شيخ أبي القاسم الحسين بن روح رضي الله عنه أن يسأل الحضرة أن يدعو الله أن يرزقه أولادا فقهاء فجاء الجواب إنك لاترزق من هذه وستملك جارية ديلمية وترزق منها ولدين فقيهين [Ghayba of al-Tusi] Abu al-Abbas Ahmad b. Ali b. Nuh– Abu Abdallah al-Husayn b. Muhammad b. Sura al-Qummi [when he came to us making the Hajj] – Ali b. al-Hasan b. Yusuf al-Saigh al-Qummi and Muhammad b. Ahmad b. Muhammad al-Sayrafi better known as Ibn al-Dalal and others among the Shuyukh of the people of Qum that: Ali b. al-Husayn b. Musa b. Babawyh had married the daughter of his paternal uncle Muhammad b. Musa b. Babawayh. He was not granted a son through her. He wrote to the Shaykh Abi al-Qasim al-Husayn b. Ruh رضي الله عنه asking him to request the holy presence to supplicate to Allah to grant him knowledgeable off-spring. There came in reply: ‘You will not be granted through this one, but you will have ownership of a Daylami slave and you will be granted through her two knowledgeable sons’ قال: وقال لي أبوعبدالله بن سورة حفظه الله: ولابي الحسن بن بابويه ثلاثة أولاد محمد والحسين فقيهان ماهران في الحفظ يحفظان مالا يحفظ غيرهما من أهل قم ولهما أخ اسمه الحسن وهو الاوسط مشتغل بالعباده والزهد لايختلط بالناس ولا فقه له قال ابن سورة: كلما روى أبوجعفر وأبوعبدالله ابنا علي بن الحسين شيئا يتعجب الناس من حفظهما ويقولون لهما: هذا الشان خصوصية لكما بدعوة الامام عليه السلام لكما، وهذا أمر مستفيض في أهل قم He [Abu al-Abbas] said: Abu Abdallah b. Sura said to me: Abi al-Hasan b. Babawayh had three sons. Muhammad and al-Husayn became jurists, very capable in memorization. They could memorize what others could not among the residents of Qum. They had a brother called al-Hasan who was the middle brother. He spent a lot of his time in worship and abstinence [from the worldly things]. He used not to mix with people. He was not learned in Fiqh. Ibn Sura said: Whenever Abu Ja’far and Abu Abdallah the two sons of Ali b. al-Husayn would narrate something the people would wonder at their memorization capacity and say to them both: this merit is unique to you two because of the supplication of the Imam عليه السلام for you [to be born]. This matter [that they were born by the supplication of the Imam] is widely known among the people of Qum. IV. قدم (علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه) العراق واجتمع مع أبي القاسم الحسين بن روح رحمه الله وسأله مسائل ثم كاتبه بعد ذلك على يد علي بن جعفر بن الأسود يسأله أن يوصل له رقعة إلى الصاحب عجل الله تعالى فرجه يسأله فيها الولد، فكتب إليه: قد دعونا الله لك بذلك وسترزق ولدين ذكرين خيرين، فولد له أبو جعفر وأبو عبد الله من أم ولد وكان أبو عبد الله الحسين بن عبيد الله يقول: سمعت أبا جعفر يقول: أنا ولدت بدعوة صاحب الامر عليه السلام، ويفتخر بذلك [Fihrist of al-Najashi] He (Ali b. al-Husayn b. Musa b. Babawayh) came to Iraq and met up with Abi al-Qasim al-Husayn b. Ruh رحمه الله and asked him questions. Then he wrote to him via the mediation of Ali b. Ja’far b. al-Aswad (sic. Muhammad b. Ali al-Aswad) asking him to carry a note on his behalf to the Master عجل الله تعالى فرجه asking him for a son. He [the Imam] wrote to him: ‘We have supplicated to Allah about that for you and you will be granted two male sons who are good’. After which was born to him Abu Ja’far and Abu Abdallah from a female slave. Abu Abdallah al-Husayn b. Ubaydallah (al-Ghadhairi) used to say: I heard Aba Ja’far (al-Saduq) saying: I was born through the supplication of the Master of the Order عليه السلام, and pride himself because of that. I say: And it is such a thing which is befitting for pride.
  4. Jewish Messiah

    Writing this topic thinking that it is not mentioned here. On February 2017, NASA has discovered a new solary system which they call Trappist 1,consisting of a dwarf red star surrounded by 7 planets. Recently the existence of water here is also spoken about by many claiming that conditions of life as in case of earth is shown also in some of these planets in this system. Jewish religious text named Zohar(supposed to be written 2000 years ago) mentions the arrival of a new star surrounded exactly by 7 'stars' as the concrete sign before the coming of Messiah King which also heralds the coming tribulation (natural cataclysms like earthquakes, wars). The star prophecy is an important affair sinc many Messiah claimants in the past had been rejected by Jewish people sinc their arrival wasn't heralded by any star. Numbers 24:16 "The saying of him who heareth the words of God, and knoweth the knowledge of the Most High, who seeth the vision of the Almighty, fallen down, yet with opened eyes: 17 I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh; there shall step forth a star out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Seth." It is clear that Zohar and these prophecies all talk about this Trappist 1. The Star of Mashiach in the Zohar Shemos 7a A pillar of fire will be seen standing from above to below 40 days. All the nations will see it. At that time Melech Hamoshiach will awakedn and go out from Gan Eden, from the place called Kan Tzippor, and will be revealed in the Galil. On that day that Moshiach goes out from there, the entire world will shake and all world will hide themselves in caves and clefts in the rocks, and they won’t think to be saved. […] After 40 days that the pillar will stand from the earth to the heavens in the eys of all the world the Moshiach will be revealed. A star will arise from the East side, flaming with all colors, and 7 other stars will go around this star and make a war with it on all sides 3 times a day for 70 days, and all the people of the world will see. That same star will make war with them with blazes of fire and flaming and sparking on each side, and it will hit them until it swallows them each and every night, and then in the day it returns and expels them, and they make war in the eyes of the whole world. After 70 days, that star will be concealed and Moshiach will be concealed for 12 months and the pillar of fire will return to the way it was before and in it Moshiach will be concealed and that pillar will not be seen. And as for the Messiah King whom Jews expect is clearly the Mahdi and not Dajjal. As for the Nibiru conspiracy, its clearly this same Trappist 1 though many claim its something other. Jewish King is coming
  5. Mahdi and the Torah

    Hi friends. While reading up on the topic of Imam Mahdi, I came across the following narration: Jabir Ibn Yazid al-Jo'fi from Imam Muhammad Baqr: "...The reason why Hazrat Mahdi (as) is known as Hazrat Mahdi (as) is this; he will be directed toward a secret matter, will extract the Torah and other Divine books from a cave in Antioch and will judge among the Jews with the Torah and among the Christians with the Gospel." (Al-Mahdiy al-Mawud) It leaves me with a few questions. 1.) I came across this narration on a non-Shia website, but it seems to be from a Shia source. Is this narration considered reliable? 2.) Is the belief that the Mahdi will restore the true form of previous scriptures generally held within the Shia IthnaAsheri community? 3.) What happens after the true form of these scriptures is restored? The same website had a narration that some Jews and Christians become Muslim, presumably observing the Shariah of Muhammad. What about the rest? Does a restoration of the true form of Jewish law occur (based upon "will judge among the Jews with the Torah")? If so, does this render Judaism a purified sort of Jewish Islam? 4.) Any theories on how a pure version of the Torah might have come to a cave in Antioch? I have some thoughts about the gospel, but the Torah has me stumped. Thanks so much for your thoughts and knowledge.
  6. Salamu Alaykum. There has been a hadith commonly used by Sunnis (and shias who hate Iran) that I am sure all of you know: حَدَّثَنَا مَنْصُورُ بْنُ أَبِي مُزَاحِمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ حَمْزَةَ، عَنِ الأَوْزَاعِيِّ، عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ، بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَمِّهِ، أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ يَتْبَعُ الدَّجَّالَ مِنْ يَهُودِ أَصْبَهَانَ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفًا عَلَيْهِمُ الطَّيَالِسَةُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ Reference : Sahih Muslim 2944, In-book reference : Book 54, Hadith 155 it talks about Jews from Isfahan joining the Dajjal. Just a few points: 1. Nowhere is the hadith is "Al-Faras" mentioned. 2. The arabic says "asbahan" however there are 3 ancient names for Isfahan none of them are "asbahan" So back to the point could you guys/women share Hadiths about characteristics of Dajjal and Imam al-Mehdi? And who will follow them etc? Thanks
  7. 72 or 313

    Salaam. Hypothetically, if you had the option of either being one of the 72 of Imam Hussain (as) or one of the 313 of Imam Mahdi (as), which option would you choose and why?
  8. Just saw this recently and i would definitely recommend everyone to watch is aswell. Extremely informative especially since it segregates the signs in time periods. A good eye opener.

S: Mahdi will again invade Persia from Afghanistan
  10. Modern Day Saqifa

    Saudi Crown pricne said: Prince Mohammed bin Salman said in a television interview broadcast on Tuesday that his country could crush Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen where a Saudi-led military coalition is fighting to restore the government of president Abdrabu Mansur Hadi. Asked if Saudi Arabia was ready to open a direct dialogue with Tehran, Prince Mohammed said it was impossible to talk with a power that was planning for the return of the Imam Mahdi. Shiites believe Imam Mahdi was a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed who went into hiding 1,000 years ago and will return to establish global Islamic rule before the end of the world. "How do you have a dialogue with this (Iran)?" Prince Mohammed said. "Its (Iran’s) logic is that the Imam Mahdi will come and they must prepare the fertile environment for the arrival of the awaited Mahdi and they must control the Muslim world." Under Iran’s constitution, in place since the 1979 revolution, the country’s supreme leader is the earthly representative of the Imam until his return. http://www.thenational.ae/world/middle-east/saudi-arabias-prince-mohammed-bin-salman-rules-out-dialogue-with-iran Trump to visit Saudi capital Riyadh to meet 50 countries alliance. The summit agenda is expected to focus on combating Islamist militants and the growing regional influence of Iran. Mr Trump has been a fierce critic of the Iran deal which eased sanctions in return for a curb on its nuclear activities. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39979189 so modern day Saqifa is in process to deny the Chosen representative Mahdi and his supporters and those awaiting for him.

    An awesome short film made by Masaf institude about Imam of Era,... and us.
  13. In the Name of Allah, the Companionate, the Merciful What is the need for a “Mahdavi Resuscitation”? What we understand from studying the actions which are recommended to do on the eve of the 15th of Shaban is that this night is the successor and equivalent to the “Night of Power”, a blessed night, a perfect opportunity to approach God, to gain excellence and pardon, also the distribution of portion and the destinies are inscribed on this night. The most significant actions of this night include: ablution, staying up late (saying prayers, praying and repenting), conveying a salute to Imam Hussein (PBUH) even by saluting him from the roof of one’s house (this is the most preeminent of the actions on this night), Du'a Kumayl, some special Du’as (of which the most important and relevant one is اَللّهُمَّ بِحَقِّ لَیْلَتِنا [هذِهِ] وَ مَوْلُودِها –[Oh God, to this night and the one who was born in it]) and some prayers (which are long and detailed). By “Mahdavi Resuscitation” we mean to make the people aware of Imam Mahdi (PBUH) and to grab their attention to him and making this night special because of Imam Mahdi (PBUH). Based on what has been said so far, the following strategy can be considered for this night: First, we should repent (as it is recommended to do so on this night) and then we implore God what we want (this is highly recommended in different prayers). Of course, we should pay due attention to this fact that “as far as the form and type of organizing gatherings for such a night needs to be expedient and wise so that along with what lecturers say on this night the addressees are trained well, we need to have a special plan for this night.” In fact, a participant in such gatherings wants to find an answer to the following questions and we want to have the best possible answers: Why is such a night so dear to God? Why does it have so much widespread blessings? (God has sworn that no one is returned empty-handed.) What should we repent for? (What sins entangle prayers and bring about chastisement and hardship? What is the surest way to be pardoned? What should we ask God? (What are the best requests? Is there a request which incarnate all the good things?) Are the mentioned cases related to the person born on this eve? To answer the above questions we suggest the following scheme: Repentance B) Urgency C) Prayer Repentance As it was mentioned earlier, such a night is the night to repent for the sins and seek pardon and excellence: What better way do you know for repenting other than showing sympathy to Imam Hussein (PBUH) by crying? (On this night, the most preeminent of the actions is conveying a salute to Imam Hussein (PBUH) even if we just face toward Karbala and which prayer better than Du'a Kumayl of Amir al-Mumenin?) The aim of step A: Repenting for the sins which entangle prayers and for the sins which prevent or hamper the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH). Urgency Our addressee should know that the best prayer is to implore God for the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH), provided that he understands that what abundant grace and blessing he has missed because of Imam Mahdi’s (PBUH) Occultation. Therefore, it is suggested that the Du’a al-Faraj (supplication for relief) [O God! The disasters have increased) and special clauses from Nudba Du’a (Where is Imam Mahdi (PBUH)? Where is the avenger of the blood of Imam Hussein (PBUH)?) and the clause which refers to “Where is he?” and the one which implies the failure to gain blessing because of his absence be recited. The aim of step B: the addressee should realize that he lacks this huge treasure and finds himself as unfortunate and orphan and consequently feels distressed. Prayer Now we know what we should ask: “Oh God, to this night and the one who was born in it” as well as some lines from Nudba Du’a (اللهم انت کشاف الکرب و البلوی to the end) and other phrases in which God is addressed and anyone who stays up resuscitating has Inshallah reached the meaning of the Prayer for the relief and Reappearance. Now, that we have repented and become distressed and we implore God for the Reappearance we can ask everyone to recite together the Verse 62 of Al-Naml Surah: “أَمَّنْ يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الْأَرْضِ أَإِلَهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَا تَذَكَّرُونَ” Or, who listens to the (soul) distressed when it calls on Him, and Who relieves its suffering, and makes you (mankind) inheritors of the earth? (Can there be another) god besides Allah? Little it is that ye heed! Undoubtedly, this part is the most spiritual and interesting part of the gathering based on what we have experienced in three consecutive years and by making the programs into a network nationwide and even abroad as well as according to the survey done by asking our audience. It is quite obvious that a communal request and a general distress accompanied with tears and supplications are been emphasized in prayers and narrations. (Is there any succor?) Thus, it is recommended that conveying a salute to Imam Hussein (PBUH) or “Ziyarat Ashura” be the first program on the agenda. (It helps prepare a spiritual atmosphere for the gathering). By reciting some Verses of the Holy Quran (after “Ziyarat Ashura”) the gathering has already begun. Then the orator should give his oration. Next, some phrases from Du'a Kumayl (the end of the repenting section) should be read. A refreshing (if needed) The Du’a al-Faraj with the phrases of “Where”, Nudba Du’a (the end of the urgency section) The Du’a of اَللّهُمَّ بِحَقِّ لَیْلَتِنا [هذِهِ] وَ مَوْلُودِها as well as the phrases which address God (اللهم انت کشاف الکرب و البلوی to the end). In these lines we just request God his Imam. And at the end, a repetition (e.g. 100 times) of the Verse by everyone: “أَمَّنْ يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الْأَرْضِ أَإِلَهٌ مَعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَا تَذَكَّرُونَ” (It is recommended that the eulogists be aware that at the end of every ten repetition they can mention the urgency the Ahl al- Bayt had, for instance the distress Abbas ibn Ali (PBUH) had when his waterskin was torn, the distress Imam Hussein (PBUH) had when the arrow hit the neck of his six-year-old son, the distress of Imam Ali (PBUH) and even by mentioning the distress of the Shias all over the world including Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Lebanon and by referring to these, we implore God to precipitate the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH). The organizers, lecturers and eulogists of the gatherings should pay attention that excluding their indisputable discussions (no need to mention them but e.g. the duties of the awaiting people) should refer to the following points due to the special conditions of these days: The great oppression that has been inflicted on humanity and Islam as well as Shias by the Satans of the humans and Jinn. The oppression is the cultural unawareness and lack of faith which is widespread all over the world and also the humans’ inability to manage the world. Referring to the importance of solidarity among Shias and avoiding division, and mentioning the bravery of the defenders in Syria, Iraq and etc. emphasizing the role of defending Islam and spreading hope to the awaiting people until the moment of the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH). Having a complete awareness toward the fake and astray sects of Islam To sum it up, the person who is staying up praying repents from the sins (those which prevent the Reappearance) he becomes distressed because of not having the Imam and the oppression in the world and prays for the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH) (in this pray all the blessings and good things are included). Based on what have been said so far: The motto: “Mahdavi Resuscitating, repenting, distress and prays” is recommended. Repenting from the sins which prevent the Reappearance --->Distress for the Occultation ---> The Al-Faraj Du'a and the separation ends. You can download this video for more clarification: http://dl.masaf.ir/film/Raefipour/Mahdavi Vigil 2016-Mr.ALi Akbar Raefipour-English360p.mp4 ========================================================================================= Here is the Arabic explanations: لماذا إحیاء المهدویة؟! ما نلاحظه من دراسة الأعمال المذکورة في لیلة النصف من شعبان هو أنها تسبق لیلة القدر و أنها لیلة مبارکة و هناک فرصة ممتازة للتقرب من الله و الحصول علی الفضل و المغفرة و تقسیم الأرزاق و کتابة الأجل. من أهم أعمال هذه اللیلة هي:الغسل ، إحیاء هذه اللیلة( بالصلاة،الدعاء،الإستغفار)،زیارة الإمام الحسین (علیه السلام) و لو بقول التحیة من سطح البیت (من أفضل أعمال هذه اللیلة)، دعاء الکمیل،بعض الأدعية الخاصة(من أهمها و أکثرها علاقة هو دعاء اَللّهُمَّ بِحَقِّ لَیلَتِنا وَ مَولُودِها) و بعض الصلوات (و هي طویلة و مفصلة). الهدف من إحیاء المهدویة في الواقع هو تنبیه المخاطبین إلی الإمام بصورة عامة و إلی صاحب الزمان بصورة خاصة.نظرا لما ذکر نستطیع نتخذ الإستراتیجیة التالیة للمراسم: في البدایة یجب الإستغفار(و کما اوصینا في هذه اللیلة) و طلب الحاجات من الله(و اوصینا کثیرا في الأدعية).و یجب الإنتباه إلی هذا الأمر«یجب أن یکون شکل و ظاهر الأداء متسماً بالحکمة و التعقل لیربي المخاطب إلی جانب ما یطرح من جانب الخطباء في مثل هذه اللیلة فیجب وضع برامج خاصة لها». الموضوع في الواقع هو أن المشارکین في هذه المراسم یجب أن یبحثوا عن الإجابة إلی الأسئلة التالیة و نحن نبحث عن أفضل الإجابات: 1- لماذا هذه اللیلة عظیمة عند الله إلی هذا الحد؟ 2- لماذا هي ذات برکات واسعة إلی هذا الحد؟ (لقد أقسم الله أن أحداً لا یرجع بیدین) 3- ممّ یجب الاستغفار؟ (ما هي الذنوب التي تحبس الدعاء و تنزل النقم؟) 4- ما هو أفضل أسلوب للغفران؟ 5- ماذا یجب أن نطلب من الله؟ (ما هي أفضل المطالب؟هل هناک مطلب یشتمل علی جمیع الخیرات؟ 6- هل المواضیع المذکورة لها علاقة بمولود هذه اللیلة؟ للإجابة عن الأسئلة الآنفة یقترح الشکل التالي: الف: الاستغفار ب: الاضطرار ج: الدعاء الف- الاستغفار: کما قیل اللیلة هي لیلة الاستغفار من الذنوب و طلب المغفرة و الفضل: ماذا تعرفون من طرق الاستغفار أفضل من البکاء علی أبي عبدالله الحسین(علیه السلام)؟(إن من أفضل الأعمال للإستغفار هو زیارة أمام الحسین(ع) و لو بکلمة التحیة إلی جهة الکربلاء) و أي دعاء أفضل من دعاء الکمیل لأمیر المؤمنین(ع)؟ الهدف من قسم الف: استغفار الذنوب التي تحبس الأدعیة و استغفار الذنوب التي تمنع الظهور ب- الاضطرار: یجب أن یعرف المخاطب أن من أفضل الأدعیة هو طلب الفرج و ظهور الإمام لکن بشرط أن یعرف أنه بغیاب الإمام حرم من أي خیر و فضل عظیم ! فیقترح قراءة دعاء الفرج (الهی عَظُمَ البَلاء) و جمل خاصة من دعاء الندبة (این بقیه الله، این الطالب بدم المقتول و...) التي تشیر ألی موضوع "أین أنت" و عدم الحصول علی النعمة المباشرة من الإمام . الهدف من قسم ب: یعني أن المخاطب یستطیع أن یفهم و یشعر بعدم امتلاکه لهذا الکنز العظیم و یری نفسه مسکینا و مستکینا و یتیما و نتیجته أن یصبح مضطرا. ج- الدعاء: نعلم الآن ماذا یجب أن نطلب : دعاء اَللهُمَّ بِحَقّ لَیلَتِنا وَ مَولُودِها + جمل من دعاء الندبة (اَللهُمَّ اَنتَ کَشّافُ الکُرَبِ وَ البَلوی إلی نهایة الدعاء) القسم الذي یکون الله هو المخاطب و العبد الذي یحیي الليلة توصل إلی فهم الدعاء للظهور و الفرج ، إن شاءالله. د- الآن و قد استغفرنا و أصبحنا مضطرین و نطلب ظهور و فرج المولی بدموعنا و نستطیع مشاهدة جمیعها في تکرار الآیة الشریفة 62 من سورة النمل و توحید أصوات الإمام و المأموم و هو: أَمَّن يجُيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَ يَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَ يَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاءَ الْأَرْضِ لاشک أن تجربة إقامة مراسم الإحیاء لثلاث سنوات متتالیة و جعل البرامج بشکل قناة في أنحاء البلد و حتی خارج البلد و الإأستطلاعات التي أجریت من المخاطبین نجد من خلالها أن هذا القسم هو من أمتع أقسام المراسم و أکثرها معنویة. من الواضح أن الطلب الجماعي و الاضطرار العام مع الندبة و الدموع و التضرع أکّد علیها في الأدعية و الأحادیث (هَل مِن مُعین؟) فیقترح أن: تکون زیارة إمام الحسین (ع) أو زیارة العاشوراء أول برنامج لهذه المراسم. (لتحضیر الأجواء المعنوية للمراسم ) - یبدأ البرنامج عملیا بقراءة القرآن من قبل القارئ (بعد زیارة العاشوراء). - بعد ذلک کلمة خطیب الجلسة - بعد ذلک قراءة بعض الجمل من دعاء الکمیل (نهایة قسم الاستغفار). - إستراحة (عند الحاجة) - دعاء الفرج + جمل (أینَ) دعاء الندبة (نهاية قسم الاضطرار) - دعاء اللهم بحق لیلتنا و مولودها + جمل من الندبة التي یکون الله مخاطبها (اللهم انت الکشاف الکرب و البلوا إلی نهاية الدعاء) في هذه الجمل نطلب من الله الإمام فحسب . - و في النهاية تکرار (مثلا مئة مرة) الجمیع و بصوت واحد و بقلب واحد الآیة الشریفة اَمَّن یُجیب... [یقترح أن نفهّم رادود الجلسة من قبل بأن یتحدث حول اضطرار أهل البیت بعد کل عشر مرات من التکرار و یقسم الله بالأئمة و الظلم التي قاسوه – مثل اضطرار العباس(ع) عندما ثقبت قربته، اضطرار إمام الحسین(ع) عندما اصاب السهم حنجرة الطفل الرضیع ذي الستة أشهر و اضطرار الإمام علي (ع)... و حتی الإشارة إلی اضطرار الشیعة في أنحاء العالم بما فیها سوریا، العراق، نیجریا، لبنان و ... و یطلب قرب فرج امام الزمان. - علی مقیمي المراسم أن یتحدثوا مع الخطباء و الروادید الأعزاء حتی یشیروا إلی المواضیع التالیة إضافة إلی محکمات کلامهم (التي لا حاجة إلی ذکرها لشدة وضوحها مثل واجبات المنتظرین و ... ) بسبب الوجود في وضعیة زمانیة خاصة و لمنع الأضرار: - الظلم الذي حصل للإنسانیة ، الإسلام الأصیل و الشیعة من جانب شیاطین الجن و الإنس بما فیه الظلام الثقافي و العقائدي الذي عمّ العالم و أن البشر لا یستطیع أن یدیر نفسه و العالم. - الإشارة إلی أهمية وحدة الشیعة و الإبتعاد عن التفرقة و الإشارة إلی شجاعة و تضحیة جنود إمام الزمان(ارواحنا فداه) في سبیل الدفاع عن نطاق الإسلام في سوریا، العراق و غیرها؛و التأکید علی حمل الرایة و حفظ خندق وجود التشیع و الإسلام الأصیل و إعطاء الأمل للمنتظرين حتی ظهور الحجة إن شاءالله. - التنبه أمام الفرق الضالة موجز الکلام هو أن الذي یحیي هذه اللیلة یستغفر من الذنوب (التي تمنع الظهور بصورة حقیقیة)، و یصبح مضطرا من عدم وجود الإمام و الظلم و الظلام الجاري في العالم و یدعو لظهور الإمام ( و تکون جمیع الخیرات و البرکات مستترة في هذا الدعاء). نظرا لما قیل: یقترح شعار : " احیاء المهدوية، الاستغفار، الاضطرار و الدعاء". dl.masaf.ir/film/Raefipour/Mahdavi%20Vigil%202016-Mr.ALi%20Akbar%20Raefipour-English360p.mp4 =================================================================================== To read the original article in Persian/English/Arabic, I suggest you to use the link below: http://masaf.ir/View/Contents/38494/توضیحات-کامل-در-مورد-برگزاری-مراسم-احای-مهدوی-سال-1396-shia muslim

  15. Asalaam Alaikum wr wb brothers and sisters, Have you come across this narration from Prophet Muhammad sawas? "The Messenger of Allah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã said: Hijaz will be ruled by a man who has the name of an animal (i.e King Fahd (leopard). If you looked at him you will see that he is cross-eyed from far and if you came close to him, you will not see anything wrong with his eyes. A brother called Abdullah will succeed him. Woe unto the Shia from him, he repeated it three times, give me the glad tidings of his death, I will give you the glad tidings of the appearance of the Hujjah" - 250 Signs p.122 Muhammad Ali Tabatabai
  16. Salaam all, @Fahad Sani sought to teach us a lesson by comparing the cowardice of Caliphs Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman for running away in battles to the alleged cowardice of Imam Mahdi being in occultation aka ghaybah. I heard this several times from other wahabis and salafis so this is nothing new. But I do feel it is incumbent upon me (us) to discuss this topic and either learn from him or teach him. Claim: @Fahad Sani's reasoning is that if we call the Caliphs cowards for running away from a few battles, then Imam Mahdi is a bigger coward for being on the run for 1,400 years. Analysis: Let's discuss what is ghaybah: Allah is in Ghaybah since no one can see him Hz Musa (as) went into hiding for several years from Pharoah Hz Yusuf went into hiding for several years fearing his brothers Hz Khizr is still in hiding (2,500+ years) Hz Isa is in hiding fearing his life (~2,000 years) The Prophet Muhammad (saw) went into hiding fearing his life. Caliph Abu Bakr cried while hiding fearing his imminent discovery and death. Based on Fahad Sani's claim, we can determine that Allah and several of his prophets are cowards for hiding fearing their life OR we can say that saving one's life is paramount when not in a state of war. As a matter of fact, occultation, ghaybah, saving one's life is ESTABLISHED SUNNAH. Conclusion: Occultation aka ghaybah is established sunnah. However, there is no instance of any Prophet EVER running away from a field of battle. Once jihad is proclaimed, there is no running from it UNLESS you are a caliph of course. Therefore, ghaybah is not cowardice; running away from several battlefields IS cowardice. Cowardice of Occultation - Myth Busted.
  17. S Who is Mahdi and why do Shiites expect his return? One of the issues unanimously accepted by all Divine religions is that of the Reformer who will reappear at the End of the Time. Not only Islamic societies but also Jewish and Christian societies await the one who will administer justice all over the world. This fact will be made clear by referring to the Old and New Testaments.[1] The holy Prophet of Islam also made a statement which the Islamic traditionists have quoted: "If there remains of the world only a single day, Allah will lengthen it until He has sent one from the people of my household. He will fill the world with equity and justice after it has been filled with injustice or oppression."[2] Such a Reformer is, therefore, acknowledged by prophets. There are also numerous traditions in the Sunni scholars' anthology of traditions (i.e.Sahihs and Musnads) concerning the Promised Mahdi. Besides, the Islamic traditionists - Sunni as well as Shiite scholars - have written a large number of books about him.[3] The descriptions given in all these traditions do fit the immediate son of Imam Hasan 'Askari[4] (The eleventh Imam of the Shiites), whose name is the same as the noble Prophet's.[5] He is the twelfth Imam[6] and a grandson from the line of Imam Husayn, the son of 'Ali Ibn Abi-Talib.[7] The Promised Mahdi was, upon God's command, born in 255 H / 877 A.D. and now continues his life in an unknown guise. It is necessary to mention that such a long life is inharmonious neither with science nor with the logic of revelation. Modern science is planning to lengthen man's life and believes that man has the disposition for living long, and the possibility will increase if disasters and harms are, in part, prevented. Mention has also bee made in history of those who have had long lives. For instance, the following verses of the Qur'an can be mentioned regarding the Prophets Noah and Jonah: "So he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years." (29:14) "And had he not been one of those who glorify (Us), he would certainly have tarried in its (the whale's) belly to the Day of Resurrection." (37:144) From the viewpoint of the Qur'an as well as that of Muslims, Khidr, the noble Prophet, and the Noble Jesus are still alive.

  18. After all you're my soul

    After all you're my soul But sure you own it sole Can i pray and loudly say Do come with no delay Eyes and heart are so dark Fill it up with your spark Good days will come too Heaven is what but you I will cry but so shy Judge me from my eye Knowing you what shall I do Love, adore, and still due My only one under the sun Needy and lost; to you shall run Only if I; glimpse you and die Peaceful I can close my eye Question me for what i see Really you; not her, him nor we Seeing you but; eyes will not shut Truly from your face to glut (يشبع) Under my skins moving in my veins Vanished is myself and you reigns (يسيطر) When earth as a whole in your hands fall X-large or small you will own it all You’re my Mahdi my holy grandee (النبيل) Zoom in my heart you made dandy (مدهش) In every letter I wrote to you thy LOVE My Divine Lord just look above.

  19. The 4th episode of Hussein of Era concerns a Hadith of Imam Sadiq(as) about 5 most criers of history.
  20. Hey, I wanted to create this thread and, as a Baha'i, I am interested in creating a HEALTHY debate about whether or not Baha'u'llah and the Bab are truly prophets. I would request from all those who would like to comment to not insult anyone, including Baha'u'llah, the Bab. This is meant to be a healthy conversation. FYI, I speak perfect Arabic so I have no problem explaining things in Arabic or verses, etc. from the Baha'i writings.
  21. Who is the Khorasani

    Assalamu Alaikom So, the general story is that the army of the Sufyani will start in Syria, take over until the east of Iraq, and the ground will swallow them. Sounds like ISIS. The Yamani will rise with a white banner out of Yemen and will call people to truth. Sounds like Ansar Allah. I know the Sufyani, Yamani and Khorasani rise at the same time. Does anyone know who the Khorasani could be? They rise on the same day. On August 18 2014, the Houthi takeover of Yemen began. On August 18 2014, the war between ISIS and the US escalated to a point where the Mosul Dam area was being bombed, and ISIS had spread to Libya. Who could be the Khorasani?
  22. The Turk will occupy the region of al-Jazira; the Byzantines will occupy Ramla; the star will appear in the east giving light just like the moon gives light; then (the new moon) will bend until its two tips almost meet; a colour will appear in the sky and spread to its horizons; a fire will appear for a long time in the east remaining in the air for three or seven days; the Arabs will throw off the reins and take possession of their land, throwing out the foreign authority; the people of Egypt will kill their ruler and destroy Syria; and three standards will dispute over it (Syria). https://www.al-islam.org/articles/signs-reappearance-twelfth-imam-ajtf Is the fire in Israel considered a sign for Reappearance of Imam Mahdi AS?
  23. Hussein of Era(af)

    The 3rd episode of Hussein of Era(af) concerning 3 droplets of Shi'ism, I've felt these things with my own heart, specially, the part about the 3rd droplet.
  24. A simple clip about what happened and what they pretended that had happened and what will happen in the end:
  25. Hussein(as) of Era

    Due to the closeness of Arbaeen, I think it is good to share some videos related to this matter, with the point of view pf our time's Imam(af). Here's episode 2, I've shared it's first episode before.
