  2. Salaam brothers and sisters, I have been looking for a Quran Tafsir & Translation by Shia scholars/sheikhs but so far haven't been successful... Recently I've been working on the habit of reading more Quran. If anybody knows a good source for a good Tafsir as well as Translation written by a Shia scholar/sheikh, kindly link me up. And please refrain from commenting on how Shia/Sunni translations are the same because they are not i.e. I'm hoping to find material with the correct Shia perspective (or as close as possible) on Quranic verses in light of Ahlulbayt's teachings. Thank you very much in advance.
  3. Sallam, Peace and blessings on all. I will keep inquiry short as I am actually looking for some way to have the valuable books that I have be translated and published in Urdu.

  5. Hi, I have this beautiful amulet with an unknown language and inscription on it. I hope someone can tell me what it says and on which language. I didn't know how to upload a photo here, so I chose the photo of the amulet as my profile picture. Please help
  6. Salam, every one. I'm a Ph.D candidate in Architecture who is doing research and writing ISI Articles. Since I'm studying in Iran and I've always lived here, I'm not very good in writing article in English. Although we have learned English for many years but writing a scholarly article with out mistakes seems very difficult to me. I knew someone who helped me but he is not helping me anyone so I have been left with out help. Therefore, If anyone ( who is educated ) is willing to help me, please let me know. I can pay for the time you take or I can go to shrine pray for you (since I am living in Mashhad) or even both! Tanx a lot p.s: it is not necessary that you know Farsi. I write articles and you just correct the mistakes.
  7. Why we shouldn't skip prayers!

    I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  8. Salamun Alaykum all! I work for a charity organization under a prominent Marje' in Najaf, Iraq and we're looking for really good translators. This is the kind of content you can expect to translate (mostly English-Arabic but some English-Arabic too): - The stuff that goes on fundraising posters - The stuff that goes on social media ads, and its captions We want people who, in addition to having good command in Arabic and English, are confident about their copywriting and editing abilities in Arabic. * The work will be freelance for now. You can do it from anywhere in the world. ** The work is regular - say you would be translating 8 posters/ads per month, plus short social media captions for the posters/ads. You might also be approached to translate subtitles or texts in promo videos. *** The translator needs to be prompt and translate within 5 hours or in exceptions, 10. This can be negotiated slightly if you're a really good translator. We'll trial you for a short period initially, and then decide if we want to hire you. Think you're up to the challenge? PM me soon! The work is rewarding and your price is negotiable. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  10. Salams All, I am in desperate need of a Translator from Arabic to English for a book project in creating a Ziyarat Guide to Iraq for English speaking Pilgrims. Are you (or someone you know) able to help? Naturally, given the nature of the book, I am looking for someone who understands the nuances and respect required when referencing holy places, personalities etc, so for that reason only, a fellow Shia brother / sister would be most appropriate. From a service point of view, accuracy in translation is naturally essential, as is the quality of English language in the output. We're currently in the process of collating together all the pages that require translation (circa 300 pages) and I'm now keen to discuss the project with those who are able to help. No one involved in the project is profiting or being paid, but for qualified people I am happy to pay you for your services. Alternatively, if you would like to volunteer to help in the project, that would also be very welcome! (Everyone who participates will be credited by name in the book) Jazakallah RJ [Mod Note: The OP removed personal name to prevent google indexing.]
  11. Rijal Al-Kashi

    This will be a thread where translations of individual Riwayat from Rijal al-Kashi are assembled randomly, until the whole book is translated insha Allah. حمدويه و إبراهيم، قالا حدثنا أيوب بن نوح، قال أخبرنا حنان، عن عقبة بن بشير الأسدي، قال : دخلت على أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) فقلت له إني من الحسب الضخم من قومي، و إن قومي كان لهم عريف فهلك فأرادوا أن يعرفوني عليهم فما ترى لي قال، فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) تمن علينا بحسبك إن الله تعالى رفع بالإيمان من كان الناس سموه وضيعا إذا كان مؤمنا، و وضع بالكفر من كان يسمونه شريفا إذا كان كافرا، فليس لأحد على أحد فضل إلا بتقوى الله، و أما قولك إن قومي كان لهم عريف فهلك فأرادوا أن يعرفوني عليهم فإن كنت تكره الجنة و تبغضها فتعرف على قومك، يأخذ سلطان جائر بامرئ مسلم يسفك دمه فتشركهم في دمه، و عسى أن لا تنال من دنياهم شيئا 358. Hamdawayh AND Ibrahim both of whom said: narrated to us Ayyub bin Nuh who said: reported to us Hannan from Uqba bin Bashir al-Asadiy who said: I entered upon Abi Ja'far عليه السلام, so I said to him - I am of a weighty status within my tribe (i.e. in regards lineage), and my tribe had a chief who passed away, so they wanted to appoint me as the new chief over them, so what do you say about that? so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: you seek to impress us by your pedigree! verily Allah has elevated by Iman the one whom the people used to consider base if he is a Mu'min, and has lowered by Kufr the one whom the people used to consider esteemed if he is a Kafir, so there is not for someone over the other any merit except by the Taqwa of Allah, as for your saying 'my people had a chief who passed away, and they wanted to appoint me as the new chief over them' then if you dislike Jannah and hate it then accept that position, for a tyrant ruler will take an innocent Muslim man and shed his blood, so you will also play a part in his killing, and moreover, it may also happen that you do not reap anything from their world (i.e. and its riches). حدثني محمد بن مسعود، قال حدثني علي بن محمد بن فيروزان القمي، قال أخبرني محمد بن أحمد بن يحيى، عن العباس بن معروف، عن الحجال، عن أبي مريم الأنصاري، قال، : قال لي أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) قل لسلمة بن كهيل و الحكم بن عتيبة شرقا أو غربا لن تجدا علما صحيحا إلا شيئا خرج من عندنا أهل البيت 369. Narrated to me Muhammad bin Masud who said: narrate to me Ali bin Muhammad bin Fayruzan al-Qummiy who said: reported to me Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Yahya from al-Abbas bin Ma'ruf from al-Hajjal from Abi Maryam al-Ansari who said: Abi Ja'far عليه السلام said to Salama bin Kuhayl and al-Hakam bin Utayba - (go) east or west, you will not find correct knowledge except something that has originated from us - the Ahl al-Bayt. ذكر أبو القاسم نصر بن الصباح، عن الفضل بن شاذان، قال : دخلت على محمد بن أبي عمير، و هو ساجد فأطال السجود، فلما رفع رأسه و ذكر له طول سجوده، قال كيف و لو رأيت جميل بن دراج ثم حدثه أنه دخل على جميل بن دراج فوجده ساجدا فأطال السجود جدا فلما رفع رأسه قال محمد بن أبي عمير أطلت السجود فقال لو رأيت معروف بن خربوذ 373. Mentioned Abu al-Qasim Nasr bin al-Sabah from al-Fadhl bin Shadhan who said: I entered upon Muhammad bin Abi Umayr and found him to be in Sajdah, so he lengthened the Sajdah, so when he had raised his head (from the Sajdah), and it was mentioned to him the length of his Sajdah - he said: what will you say if you had seen Jamil bin Darraj, then he narrated that he had entered upon Jamil bin Darraj and found him in Sajdah, so he (i.e. Jamil) lengthened the Sajdah excessively, so when he had raised his head - Muhammad bin Abi Umayr said to him: you have lengthened the Sajdah - so he (i.e. Jamil) said: if only you had seen Ma'ruf bin Khurbudh.
  12. Surah Yaseen

    According to this verse, there were some people who never got warned. Does it mean there were some people who never got the message of Allah. So will they go to heaven? Since they never received a message of Allah so they cannot be judged.

  17. Status Of These Hadiths

    Can someone provide the status of these hadiths and their arabic texts? They are found in Usul Kafi, in the book of leadership with divine authority. I was just wondering how authentic they were and whether translated correctly. The first hadith I included here I was wondering about because it seems the Prophet (sawas) is giving advice to an anonymous ruler after him, without specifying who his wasi is? H , Ch. 104, h 3 A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Hammad and others from Hanan ibn Sadir al-Sayrafi who has said the following. "I heard abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) say, ‘The Holy Prophet (s.a) was given the news of his own death while he was in a good health and he did not suffer any pain." He said, "The trusted Spirit came to him." He said, "The Holy Prophet called for a prayer in congregation. He then ordered the Muhajir and Ansar (people from Makka and the people of Madina) to arm themselves. The people all came and the Holy Prophet climbed the platform, the pulpit and gave out the news of his own death and then said, "I warn of Allah the ruler after me over my followers for not being kind to the community of the Muslims. He must honor the elders among them and be kind to their weak, treat their scholars with dignity, must not harm to humiliate them. He must not allow them to suffer poverty that would turn them to disbelief, must not close his door to them to let their strong over run the weak ones. He must not use them in the (armed) campaigns for food that would banish the offspring of my followers. Then he said, (Certainly) I have delivered to you the message, gave you good advice so you must bear this testimony." Abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) has said that this was the last words of the Messenger of Allah from the pulpit." H , Ch. 103, h 2 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan has narrated from some of our people from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Hakam ibn Miskin from a man from Quraysh from the people of Makka who has said the following. "Once Sufyan al-Thawri said to me, "Come with to meet Ja‘far ibn Muhammad (a.s.)." The narrator has said that he went with him and they found Ja‘far ibn Muhammad (a.s.) had already rode his horse. Sufyan said to him, "O abu ‘Abdallah narrate to us the text of the sermon of the Messenger of Allah in the Mosque of al-Khif." He said, "allow me to go for my needs because I am already on the horse back and when I will return then I will narrate to the text of the sermon." He said, "I swear you to your close relation to the Messenger of Allah, you must narrate the sermon first." The narrator has said that the Imam (a.s.) dismounted his horse. Sufyan said to him, "Ask someone to bring me ink and paper so I can write it down." He asked for ink and paper and it was brought for him. The he said writhe, "In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful the sermon of the Messenger of Allah in the Mosque of al-Khif "May Allah grant joy and happiness a servant who would listen to my words, then understands them and would deliver them to those who have not heard them. O people, those of you present here must deliver them to those absent. There can be many scholars of Fiqh (law) who do not have understanding as there can be many bearers of Fiqh (law) to those who are better scholars of Fiqh (law) then the bearer. There are three things in which the heart of a Muslim does not feel greed and treachery. Sincerity in deeds for Allah, wishing well for the Imams (leaders) of the Muslims and to stay close with the group of the Muslims because their call encompass those behind them and the Muslims are each other’s brothers. Their lives are as each other’s lives and they act as one hand against their enemies and the least important among them strive to fulfill their responsibilities." Sufyan wrote it down and proof read before him. Abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) then rode his horse. I and Sufyan came back. Somewhere on the way he said, "Stay where you are. I want to look at this Hadith." I then said to him, "There is no doubt, by Allah, that abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) has tied something to your neck as such that it will never go away." He aske, "What is that thing?" I then said, "There are three things in which the heart of a Muslim does not feel greed and treachery. Sincerity in deeds for Allah, is one that we know it. The other one is ‘Wishing well for the Imams of the Muslims.’ Who are these Imams for whom we must wish well? Are they Mu‘awiya ibn abu Sufyan and Yazid ibn Mu‘awiya and Marwan ibn al-Hakam? (They are such disqualified people that) the testimony of no one of them is acceptable to us and it is not permissible to pray behind them." Also his words, "Stay close with their group" Which group is it? Is it the Muji‘a group that says, "Those who do perform prayers, do not fast, do not clean and wash themselves after carnal relations, cause the destruction of the Ka‘ba or marry his own mother have the same degree of faith as those of angel Jibril and Mika’il. Is it the Qadri, (pre-destinationist) who say, "What Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most gracious, say will not happen but Satan says will happen."? Is it the Harawri group who is the enemy of Ali ibn abu Talib (a.s.) and call him an unbeliever? Is it the Jahmiy group who says that the only thing needed is to know Allah only is faith and nothing else is required?" He then said, "Woe is you, what then they say?" I said, "They say, "Ali ibn abu Talib, by Allah, is the Imam for whom we must wish well. To must stay close to their group means, his Ahl al-Bayt (members of the family of Prophet Muhammad).’ The narrator has said that Sufyan al-Thawri then tore the document of Zadith and said, "Do not tell it to anyone." H , Ch. 103, h 4 A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn al-Faddal from abu Jamila from Muhammad al-Halabi from abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) who has said the following. "Whoever would distance himself from the company the Muslims even by one shibr (one foot) he has removed the band of allegiance with Islam from his neck."
  18. Selam Guys, I have been working on unique ways to educate the masses. ------------------- THE HUMAN BODY MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!physicalbody/c1hz2 Select your body part and every mention of your selection in Quran The selection choices are: Head; which includes Hair, Forehead, Eyes, Nose, Ears, Mouth, Cheeks and Chin Neck, Body, Arms, Hands, Genitalia, Legs, Feet or Miscellaneous to the right ------------------- PROPHET STUDY TOOL http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!prophet-study-tool/csl2 What I've done is taken every reference and life of each prophet and put it together. So rather than having to read through every Surah to find the prophet's account, its all filtered ready to be studied I also added colour (for example disbelievers are red, message from Allah green, the selected prophet is yellow) so the reader can easily identify the speaker. ------------------- NON PROPHET STUDY TOOL http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!non-prophets/c6k4 Same as prophet study tool but includes characters mentioned by name in the Quran who aren't prophets ------------------- EVERY NUMBER MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!numbers/cfqj ------------------- EVERY PLANT MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!plants/cjax ------------------- EVERY ANIMAL MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!animals/ce0i ------------------- EVERY BIRD MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!birds/c22uv ------------------- EVERY INSECT MENTIONED IN QURAN http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!insects/c1cq ------------------- QURAN SPREADSHEET It contains a concordance maker in a macro for all those who want it (what that means is every Ayat that contains your selected filtered word will be displayed in Arabic, transliteration and English) WATCH VIDEO FOR HELP http://www.OrganisedQuran.com/#!quran-spreadsheet/c3jo ------------------- MY OTHER SITE If you want a complete Quran with the concordance within it the please refer to br Waleeds Quran site which I am in charge of his Quran section. Got to www.islamawakened.com/index.php/qur-an Select your Ayat. Select the tab "word for word" (Each word has an audio to hear it's pronunciation) Under each word are Arabic hyperlinked letters, these letters are called root letters. When selected every instance of the words ROOTS is displayed. In Arabic, Transliteration and English. ROOT LETTERS IS THE MOST ADVANCED WAY OF STUDYING THE QURAN. IT SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCES HUMAN ERROR OF THE TRANSLATION What is root letters? If you speak a European language, the root system of Arabic may be an unfamiliar concept. Arabic words are made from a few component letters, commonly called a "root". A root usually consists of three letters (sometimes 2 or 4), which convey a basic idea. By adding various vowels (i.e. changing pronunciation) as affixes*, associated meanings can be derived. For example, the Arabic letters: Siin–Lam–Miim س ل م ( remembering Arabic words go from right to left, unlike English) are the root for the following words: salaam (peace), islam (submission/compliance/conformance/surrender), muslim (one who submits/complies/conforms/surrenders). In all these words, you will see the root (component letters) are the same, and in the same order. In a root language, words mean what they mean because they are built from other words; these base words are called roots. Now, while most languages are concept languages, there are some words that can be likened to the root system, e.g: if you learn what the word "act" means, you should have no problem when you hear the word "actor" or "action" - you use the root to understand the word built from the root. Classical Arabic as one of the most primitive Semitic languages is primarily a root language. Almost every word gets its meaning from the roots it is built from rather than by associating a concept with the word. This gives Arabic an almost crystal clear aspect to it; there is little ambiguity or confusion in a classical Arabic sentence. The language is one of clarity, directness, and certainty - qualities that are hard to achieve in other languages. I have also added Laleh Bakhtiar short concordance and for every word Iand show a dictionary meaning from Hans Wehr. Insha'Allah this helps you all in your studies.

  20. Assalamalekum brothers and sisters, Hope this post finds you all well. I have joined Shiachat very recently and will be so glad to participate in the threads regarding various topics. Today I have found an online Quran on below address: http://al-quran.info/#home Would appreciate if someone could tell me how authentic/reliable this link should be. Jazakallah khair
  21. bismihi ta'ala assalamu alaykum, In case someone doesn't know, Tafsir Al-Mizan is a momentous exegetical work written by Allama Muhammad Hussain Al-Tabatabaei (ra), the great philosopher. His work consisted of 20 volumes which he wrote in Arabic, and the style of his Tafsir was Ijtihadi - a commentary of the Qur'an by the Qur'an, this work took him twenty years to complete. Syed Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi had taken the task of translating this work upon himself and had translated up until volume 12 (which corresponds with about volume 6 of the Arabic) and had begun translating volume 13 when he died about a decade ago. Since then there have been new projects which have started translating the work again but Syed Rizvi's work remained incomplete until his son, Syed Muhammad Rizvi, completed volume 13 (corresponding to the first half of volume 7 of the Arabic). It is being published at the moment however is available online (on the publisher's website) for downloading as a free PDF along with the rest of the book. http://www.wofis.com/Publications.aspx?bookID=8&partID=57 May Allah bless the souls of Allama Al-Tabatabaei and Syed Sa'eed Akhtar Rizvi, and give a long life to Syed Muhammad Rizvi. wa assalam
  22. Salam Alaykum, I am trying to find as many books in english as I can from Aalim Ali Sbeyt Alnili (علي سبيط النيلي).

(bismillah) As-Salamu `Alaykum jami`an, could someone verify/ correct this translation (word-for-word)? عن الإمامْ الصّادِقْ جَعفَر بِن مَحَمَد, عَن أبِيهِ, عَنْ جَدِه عَليَهم الَسلام ْأن الحُسيَن بِن عَليّ بِنْ أبي طَالِب (ع) دَخَلَ يوَماً إلى الحُسَّن (ع), فلَما نَظَرَ إليه بَكَى, فَقالَ له: ما يبُكّيكَ يا أبا مُحَمَّد؟ قالَ: أبّكْي لِما يُصنَع ُبِكَ, فقالَ له الحُسَن (ع): إنّ الذيَ يُؤتى إليَّ سُمٌّ يُدَسُّ إليّ فأقُتَلُ بِهِ, ولكنّ لا يَوم ْكَيَومِكَ يا أبا عَبّد ُالله, يزَدَلِفّ إليكَ ثَلاثونَ ألفَ رَجُلْ, يَدعّونَ أنَهمٌ ِمن ْأُمة جَدُنا مُحَمَد (ص), وَينتَحلِونَ ديّنُ الإسّلام, فيَجتمعون َعلى قتَلَكَ, وَسفّكِ دَمَُك, وآنَتِهاكِ حُرّمتِكَ, وَسبي ذّراريّك ونَسائُك,َ وانتِّهابُ ثُقلَك, فَعِندُها تَحِلّ بِبنَي أُميّة اللَعنَة, وَتمُطرُ الَسماّء ُرَمَاداً وَدَماً, وَيبَكي عَليكَ كُل ُّشَيء حَتى الوُحوُش ُفي الفَلَوات, والحِيتاّنُ في البِحارْ. From Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (Ja`far b. Muhammad) from his father, from his grandfather. Al-Husayn b. `Ali b. Abi Talib entered on the day al-Hasan (was poisoned). When his (Imam Husayn’s) eyes fell on him he started crying. Imam al-Hasan asked, ‘What makes you cry, O Aba Muhammad?’ He (Husayn) said, ‘I am crying because of what is going to happen to you’. He (Hasan) said, ‘What is in my destiny is that I have been poisoned with trickery and the… kill me (?). However, no day is like your day O’ Aba `Abdillah! On that day, thirty thousand individuals from those who claim to be the ummah of our grandfather Muhammad (s) and Muslims will collaborate to spill your blood and kill you and to violate your honour and take your women and children as prisoners and to plunder your assets. It is in that time that Allah will allow the cursing of Bani `Umayyah and it will rain blood and ashes from the sky and all creatures, even the wild animals and fishes in the sea will cry for you.’ [bihar al-Anwar, volume 22, page 274]
  24. بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم السلام علیکم hojatollah.com website has been established in order to spread great Shia culture to the whole world and present shia ethics and spirituality to everyone. In addition to that, many of our shia brothers & sisters throughout different parts of the world don't have access to hadith and other sources because of either the sources not being translated or even having problem finding the sources. For example wasail ul shia which is one of the greatest shia sources hasn't been translated completely and you can find topics in this forum which people are looking for the translation and they haven't found it though it has passed years from the topic's start. This website intends to develop a complete portal for hadith, dua, ziarat, etc. in different languages and provide it fi sabilallah in the internet. Right now, the Arabic and Persian versions of the hadiths are available and the application's software and hardware are ready. We ask help from those who are interested in this field to translate the materials. Please inform us through the email khadem@hojatollah.com or use this form.
  25. Bismihi Ta'ala As-salamu alaikum Please recommend one or more Shi'i translations of the Quran (English).
