~ Complaining to Allah during an illness ~

 

 

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Jamil ibn Salih who has said the following:

“Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, on being asked about the limits of (negative) complaints against an illness by the patient, the Imam said that if a man says, ‘I have fever today and last night I did not sleep restfully’ and what he says is true, it is not a complaint. A (negative) complaint is if one says, ‘I have suffered like no other person has suffered and I am placed in trial as no other person is.’ Just saying that one could not sleep restfully last night and that he has fever today is not complaining against an illness.”

The Holy Prophet (S) said: "He who marries a woman only for her beauty (regardless of her Faith), he will not see (gain) what he likes; and he who marries a woman only for her wealth, Allah will leave him with that wealth only. Therefore, it is to you that you look for a religious wife."

Giving Sadaqah to those how oppose the Truth..

 

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Hariz from Sadir al-Sayrafiy who has said the following:

 

“I once said to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘I know someone is asking for help, but I do not know if he is a Muslim or not.’ The Imam said, ‘You can give charity to one whom you do not know is a friend or enemy of the truth. Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, has said, “Say good words to people.” (2:83) Do not give charity to those who are hostile to the truth or call people to something of falsehood.’”

~ Wahy (Revelation) in the house of Ali (as) and Fatema (sa) ~

 

Narrated by Shaikh Abu Jafar Toosi from his chain of narrators from Ajlaan al-Sakooni who said,

 

I heard Abu Jafar Imam Baqir (as) saying, "The House of Ali (as) and Fatema (sa) is from the room of the Prophet (saww). And the roof of their house is the throne of the Lord of the worlds [Arsh Rabul Aalimeen]. And in the bottom of their house there is a opening reaching the Throne - the place of ascension of the revelation and the angels descending upon them with revelations in the morning and evening and in every hour and in every blink of the eye. And the groups of the angels do not stop (are continuous), a group coming down and a group ascending. Verily Allah, removed the covering of the heavens for Ibraheem (as) such that he saw the throne (Arsh) and Allah increased the power of his sight. And indeed Allah increased the power of sight of Mohammad (saww), Ali (as), Fatema (sa), al-Hasan (as) and al-Husain (as) and they all were seeing the throne (Arsh) and they did not find any other roof of their house other than the Arsh, because their house was roofed with the throne (Arsh of Rahmaah), and the place of ascension of the angels and the soul (Rooh), group after group continuously coming, and there is no house from the houses of the Imam's (as) but that it is a place of ascension of the angels, as the saying of Allah, "Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission, will all affairs.".

 

I (the narrator) said, "With all affairs"? Imam (as) said, "With all the affairs".

 

I (the narrator) said, "This revelation (Quran)"? Imam (as) said, "Yes".

 

قال: وفي هذا المعنى ما رواه الشيخ أبو جعفر الطوسي قدس الله روحه عن رجاله عن عبد الله بن عجلان السكوني قال: قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: بيت علي وفاطمة من حجرة رسول الله صلوات الله عليهم، وسقف بيتهم عرش رب العالمين وفي قعر بيوتهم فرجة مكشوطة إلى العرش معراج الوحي والملائكة تنزل عليهم بالوحي صباحا ومساء، وفي كل ساعة وطرفة عين، والملائكة لا ينقطع فوجهم، فوج ينزل وفوج يصعد، وإن الله تبارك وتعالى كشط لابراهيم عليه السلام عن السماوات حتى أبصر العرش وزاد الله في قوة ناظره، وإن الله زاد في قوة ناظرة محمد وعلى فاطمة والحسن والحسين صلوات الله عليهم وكانوا يبصرون العرش ولا يجدون لبيوتهم سقفا غير العرش، فبيوتهم مسقفة بعرش الرحمن، ومعارج معراج الملائكة والروح فوج بعد فوج لا انقطاع لهم وما من بيت من بيوت الائمة منا إلا وفيه معراج الملائكة لقول الله: " تنزل الملائكة والروح فيها بإذن ربهم بكل أمر سلام " قال: قلت: من كل أمر ؟ قال: بكل أمر قلت: هذا التنزيل ؟ قال نعم

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from Hariz

from Zurara from abu Ja’far, recipient of divine supreme covenant, who has said

the following:

 

“Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, has said, ‘Those

who consider themselves above the need to worship Me will

soon go to hell in disgrace.’ (40:60)

 

“The Imam said, ‘This is a reference to prayer. The best form

of worship is prayer (pleading before Allah for help).’ I (the

narrator) then asked, ‘What is meant by: Ibrahim is la awwahu,

prayerful and forbearing?’ The Imam said, ‘It means pleading

for help before Allah.’”

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن هشام بن الحكم أنه سأل أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن أسماء الله واشتقاقها: الله مما هو مشتق؟ قال: فقال لي: يا هشام الله مشتق من إله والاله يقتضي مألوها والاسم غير المسمى، فمن عبد الاسم دون المعنى فقد كفر ولم يعبد شيئا، ومن عبد الاسم والمعنى فقد كفر وعبد اثنين، ومن عبد المعنى دون الاسم فذاك التوحيد أفهمت يا هشام؟ قال: فقلت: زدني قال: إن لله تسعة وتسعين اسما فلو كان الاسم هو المسمى لكان كل اسم منها إلها ولكن الله معنى يدل عليه بهذه الاسماء وكلها غيره، يا هشام الخبز اسم للمأكول والماء اسم للمشروب والثوب اسم للملبوس والنار اسم للمحرق أفهمت يا هشام فهما تدفع به وتناضل به أعداء نا والمتخذين مع الله عزوجل غيره؟ قلت: نعم، قال: فقال: نفعك الله به وثبتك يا هشام، قال هشام فوالله ما قهرني أحد في التوحيد حتى قمت مقامي هذا.

`Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from an-Nadr b. Suwayd from Hisham b. al-Hakam.

He asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about the names of Allah and their derivations: Where is “Allah” derived from? He said: So he said to me: O Hisham, “Allah” is derived from “god” (ilah) and “the god” (al-ilah), that which has a servant (yaqtadi ma’looha). And a name is different from what is described; for whoever worships the name without the meaning has disbelieved and has worshiped nothing. And whoever worships the name and the meaning has disbelieved and has worshiped two things. Whoever worships the meaning without the name – that is monotheism (tawhid). Have you understood, O Hisham? He said: So I said: [Explain] further for me. He said: For Allah there are ninety-nine names; so if each name were a described thing, then each name from it would be a deity. However, Allah is the meaning that these names are indicative to, and they are all something other than Him. O Hisham, “bread” is the name of an edible, “water” is the name of a beverage, “cloth” is the name of what is worn, and “fire” is the name of what burns. Have you understood, O Hisham, with a comprehension that, by which, you can defend [our cause], and struggle against our enemies and those who have taken up [a deity] besides Allah عزوجل? So I said: Yes. He said: So he said: May Allah avail you by it and make you steadfast, O Hisham.

Hisham said: By Allah, no one has overcome me in monotheism (tawhid) till this position I stand at (i.e. till this day). (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 306)

Death of Ignorance or Mushrik???

 

From Sulaym ibn Qays al Hilali said;

 

"He (Sulaym) heard a hadith from Salman, Abu Dhar, and Miqdad who heard it from the Holy Prophet (saww) that He said: "Whoever dies and does not have an Imam, then he has died the death of ignorance"

 

Then he (Sulaym) presented this hadith to Jabir and ibn Abbas. Both of them said: "They all said correctly and truthfully. We were present at the time and we have heard this hadith from the Holy Prophet (saww). And verily Salman said: "O Messenger of Allah, you said whoever dies without an Imam dies as an infidel. O Messenger of Allah, who is this Imam?” The Prophet (saww) said: "They are my Wasi (successors), So who ever dies from my Ummah and has no Imam whom he knows, he has died the death of ignorance, and if he is ignorant of the Imam and bears enmity with the Imam, then he is an idol worshipper (Mushrik). And if he is ignorant of the Imam and does not have enmity with the Imam and does not befriend the enemy of the Imam then he then he is ignorant but not idol worshiper."

 

[source: Kitab-e-Sulaym, Hadith. 71 & Kamal al-Deen - Shaikh Sadooq, Vol. 2, Pg. 413/414]

 

حدثنا أبي ومحمد بن الحسن رضي الله عنهما، قالا: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله وعبد الله بن جعفر الحميري جميعا عن محمد بن عيسى ويعقوب بن يزيد وإبراهيم بن هاشم جميعا عن حماد بن عيسى عن عمر بن أذينة عن أبان بن أبي عياش عن سليم بن قيس الهلالي:

أنه سمع من سلمان ومن أبي ذر ومن المقداد رحمة الله عليهم حديثا عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: (من مات وليس له إمام مات ميتة جاهلية).

ثم عرضه على جابر وابن عباس فقالا: صدقوا وبروا، قد شهدنا ذلك وسمعناه من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، وإن سلمان قال: يا رسول الله، إنك قلت: (من مات وليس له إمام مات ميتة جاهلية)، من هذا الإمام يا رسول الله .قال صلى الله عليه وآله: من أوصيائي يا سلمان. فمن مات من أمتي وليس له إمام يعرفه مات ميتة جاهلية. فإن جهله وعاداه فهو مشرك، وإن جهله ولم يعاده ولم يوال له عدوا فهو جاهل وليس بمشرك

Kitab Al Kafi - Obidience and piety

H 1610, CH 32, h 2

 

A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn

Fadal from ‘Asim ibn Humayd from abu Hamza al-Thumali from abu Ja’far,

recipient of divine supreme covenant, who has said the following:

 

“The Messenger of Allah addressed the people during his farewell (last) visit to Makka, ‘O people, I swear by Allah, everything that can take you closer to paradise and farther away from hell I have commanded you all to follow. Everything that may take you closer to hell and farther away from paradise I have prohibited you to do. You must know that the trusted spirit has inspired me that no soul dies before his supply of sustenance is completely exhausted. Be pious before Allah and do your best in search of means of sustenance. Do not allow laziness to overcome you in your search to make a living, or lead you to make a living through improper means; nothing is achievable from what is with Allah except through obedience to Him.’”

أحمد بن إدريس، عن محمد بن عبد الجبار، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن فضيل ابن عثمان، عن ابن أبي يعفور قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن قول الله عز وجل: " هو الاول والآخر " وقلت: أما الاول فقد عرفناه وأما الآخر فبين لنا تفسيره فقال: إنه ليس شئ إلا يبيد أو يتغير، أو يدخله التغير والزوال، أو ينتقل من لون إلى لون، ومن هيئة إلى هيئة، ومن صفة إلى صفة، ومن زيادة إلى نقصان، ومن نقصان إلى زيادة إلا رب العالمين فإنه لم يزل ولا يزال بحالة واحدة، هو الاول قبل كل شئ وهو الآخر على ما لم يزل، ولا تختلف عليه الصفات والاسماء كما تختلف على غيره، مثل الانسان الذي يكون ترابا مرة، ومرة لحما ودما، ومرة رفاتا و رميما، وكالبسر الذي يكون مرة بلحا، ومرة بسرا، ومرة رطبا، ومرة تمرا، فتتبدل عليه الاسماء والصفات والله عز وجل بخلاف ذلك.

Ahmad b. Idris from Muhammad b. `Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan b. Yahya from al-Fadl b. `Uthman from ibn Abi Ya`foor.

He said: I asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about the saying of Allah عز وجل, “He is the First and the Last” (57:3). And I said: As for [the meaning of] “the First”, we know it; but as for “the Last” – elucidate its interpretation for us. 

So he said: It is that there is no thing except that it can perish or be changed; or be susceptible to alteration or disappearance; or shift from one colour to another and from one shape to another and from one quality to another; or from abundant to lacking and from lacking to abundant – except for the Lord of the worlds; for He is unceasing and unhalting in His solitary state. He is the First before all things, and He is the Last and does not cease. [His] qualities and His names do not change as they change for other than Him; like the humans who were dust at a time, and flesh and blood at a time, and corpses and powder at a time – and like a date that was raw at a time, and ripe at a time, and dry at a time, and then a date. Its names and qualities change, and Allah عز وجل is different from that. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 309)

And also, a Shi'a version.

 

 

 

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، ويعقوب بن يزيد جميعا، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن معروف بن خربوذ، عن أبي الطفيل عامر بن واثلة، عن حذيفة بن أسيد الغفاري قال:

 

لما رجع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله من حجة الوداع ونحن معه أقبل حتى انتهى إلى الجحفة فأمر أصحابه بالنزول فنزل القوم منازلهم، ثم نودي بالصلاة فصلى بأصحابه ركعتين، ثم أقبل بوجهه إليهم فقال لهم: إنه قد نبأني اللطيف الخبير أني ميت وأنكم ميتون، وكأني قد دعيت فأجبت وأني مسؤول عما أرسلت به إليكم، وعما خلفت فيكم من كتاب الله وحجته وأنكم مسؤولون، فما أنتم قائلون لربكم؟ قالوا: نقول: قد بلغت ونصحت وجاهدت - فجزاك الله عنا أفضل الجزاء –

 

ثم قال لهم: ألستم تشهدون أن لا إله إلا الله وأني رسول الله إليكم وأن الجنة حق؟ وأن النار حق؟ وأن البعث بعد الموت حق؟ فقالوا: نشهد بذلك، قال: اللهم اشهد على ما يقولون، ألا وإني أشهدكم أني أشهد أن الله مولاي، وأنا مولى كل مسلم، وأنا أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم، فهل تقرون لي بذلك، وتشهدون لي به؟ فقالوا: نعم نشهد لك بذلك،

 

فقال: ألا من كنت مولاه فإن عليا مولاه وهو هذا، ثم أخذ بيد علي عليه السلام فرفعها مع يده حتى بدت آباطهما: ثم: قال: اللهم وال من والاه، وعاد من عاداه، وانصر من نصره واخذل من خذله، ألا وإني فرطكم  وأنتم واردون علي الحوض، حوضي غدا وهو حوض عرضه ما بين بصرى وصنعاء فيه أقداح من فضة عدد نجوم السماء، ألا وإني سائلكم غدا ماذا صنعتم فيما أشهدت الله به عليكم في يومكم هذا إذا وردتم علي حوضي، وماذا صنعتم بالثقلين من بعدي فانظروا كيف تكونون خلفتموني فيهما حين تلقوني؟

 

قالوا: وما هذان الثقلان يا رسول الله؟

 

قال: أما الثقل الأكبر فكتاب الله عز وجل، سبب ممدود من الله ومني في أيديكم، طرفه بيد الله والطرف الآخر بأيديكم، فيه علم ما مضى وما بقي إلى أن تقوم الساعة، وأما الثقل الأصغر فهو حليف القرآن وهو علي بن أبي طالب و عترته عليهم السلام، وإنهما لن يفترقا حتى يردا علي الحوض.

 

قال معروف بن خربوذ: فعرضت هذا الكلام على أبي جعفر عليه السلام فقال: صدق أبو الطفيل - رحمه الله - هذا الكلام وجدناه في كتاب علي عليه السلام وعرفناه

Abī ‘Umayr – ‘Abd Allāh b. Sinān – Ma’rūf b. Kharbūz – Abū al-Ṭufayl ‘Āmir b. Wāthilah – Ḥudhayfah b. Usayd al-Ghiffārī:

 

When the Messenger of Allāh, peace be upon him and his family, returned from the Farewell Pilgrimage, and we were with him until he reached al-Juḥfah, and ordered his companions to camp. So, the people camped. Then he called for alāt, and prayed two rak’ahs with his companions. Then he turned his face to them and said to them: “I have been informed by the All-Benevolent All-Knowing that I will die, and you too will die. And it is as if I have been called (into the presence of my Lord) and I have answered. I will be asked about what I have been sent with to you, and about what I have left behind among you, the Book of Allāh AND ITS UJJAH, and you too will be asked. What will you say in reply to your Lord?” They said, “You have conveyed the message, and you have directed (to the right path), and you have made jihād. May Allāh reward you, from us, the best of rewards.”

 

Then he said, “Do you not testify that there is no god but Allāh and that I am the Messenger of Allāh to you and that the Paradise is true? And that Hellfire is true? And that the resurrection after death is true?” They said, “We testify to that”. He said, “O Allāh! Bear witness to what they are saying. And I make you my witnesses that I testify that Allāh is Mawlā, and I am the mawlā of every Muslim, and that I have more authority over the believers than themselves. Do you accept this with me, and testify for me with it?” They said, “Yes, we testify for you with it.”

 

So, he said, “Verily, whosoever I am his mawlā, verily ‘Alī is his mawlā, and it is this one”. Then he heard the hand of ‘Alī, peace be upon him, and raised it high with his hand until their armpits were visible. Then he said, “O Allāh, be the friend of whosoever is his friend, and be the enemy of whosoever is hostile to him. Help whosoever helps him and abandon whosoever abandons him. Verily, I will be your predecessor (at the Lake-Font), and you will be brought to me at the Lake-Font, my Lake-Font, tomorrow, and it is a Lake-Font whose width is of the distance between Basra (in Iraq) and Sana’a (in Yemen). In it are glasses of silver, the number of the stars in the sky. Verily, I will ask you tomorrow what you did concerning that which I asked Allāh to testify about against you in this day of yours when you are brought to my Lake-Font, and verily I will ask you, when you meet me, about what you have done with the Two Weighty Things (al-Thaqalayn) after me. Therefore, watch carefully how you treat them both in my absence.

 

They said, “What are these Two Weighty Things, O Messenger of Allāh?”

 

He replied, “As for the Bigger Weighty Thing, it is the Book of Allāh, a rope stretching from Allāh and from me, in your hands, one end of it is in the Hand of Allāh and the other end is in your hands. In it is knowledge of what had passed, and what will pass till the Hour. As for the Smaller Weighty Thing, it is THE PAIR OF THE QUR’ĀN and that is ‘Alī b. Abī Ṭālib and his bloodline, peace be upon him. Both (Weighty Things) shall NEVER separate from each other until they meet me at the Lake-Font.”

 

Ma’rūf b. Kharbūz said: “I presented this statement to Abū Ja’far, peace be upon him, and he replied, ‘Abū al-Ṭufayl, may Allāh be merciful to him, spoke the truth. We find this statement in the Book of ‘Alī, peace be upon him, and we recognize it.”

This world is like a snake:its Skin is soft,but its venom is deadly. Therefore , avoid what you find attractive in it,because you will take Little of it when you depart.And as much as it makes  you happy, be vigilant.

Al Kafi:
Graded Muwathaq
He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام: I heard Hisham b. al-Hakam narrate from you that Allah has a body, supported by light, His recognition is necessary and He bestows this [knowledge] upon whom He wills from the creation. So he عليه السلام said: Glorified be He, whom no one knows how He is except Himself. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing. He cannot be limited, nor can He be felt, nor can He be moved, nor can He be comprehended [by sight, nor by] the senses, nor can He be contained in anything, nor does He have a body, nor does He have a form, nor a figure, nor a confine. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 278)

Imam Ali a.s


Do not seek help or protection from anybody but Allah. Reserve your prayers, your requests, your solicitations, your supplications, and your entreaties to Him and Him alone because to grant, to give, to confer and to bestow, as well as to withhold, to deprive, to refuse, and to debar, lies only in His Power. Ask as much of His Blessings and seek as much of His Guidance as you can.


 


Nahjul Balagah Letter 31- in his will to Imam Hassan a.s


 


Imam Jafar e Sadiq (a.s.) said to Maisar“ O Maisar! Offer prayer to Allah and don’t say that what is destined will happen. You should remember that Allah has absolute control over the destinies and supplication can change the fate of persons.”


 


Imam Mohammed Baqir (a.s.) said, “ The best prayer is supplication and the worst enemy of Allah is a person who, in his pride, refuses to do supplication and invocation.To the contrary one who supplicates to Allah with due humility will get his prayers answered. It is like the door opening for a person who keeps knocking at it!

From Yāsir, the servant, said, I said to al-Riḍā  a.s

‘What do you say about al-Tafwīd?’ And he said: ‘Allāh  delegated (fawwaḍa) to His prophet affairs of His religion’, and He said: “Take whatever the Messenger gives to you, and deny for yourself whatever he prohibits” (59:7). As for (delegating) the creation and sustenance, then No! He said: ‘Allāh says “Allāh is the creator of all things’ (3:16) and He says “It is Allāh, He has created you, then He has given you sustenance, then He has made you die, then He has brought you back to life, are there any of your partners who can does of that any of these things? Glory be to Allāh, and High is He from the partners (they attribute)” (30:40)

عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس ابن عبد الرحمن، عن الحسن بن السرى، عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي قال: سألت أبا جعفر عليه السلام عن شئ من التوحيد، فقال: إن الله تباركت أسماؤه التي يدعا بها وتعالى في علو كنهه واحد توحد بالتوحيد في توحده (5)، ثم أجراه على خلقه فهو واحد، صمد، قدوس، يعبده كل شئ ويصمد إليه كل شئ ووسع كل شئ علما.
 
Several of our companions from Ahmad b. Abi `Abdillah from Muhammad b. `Isa from Yunus b. `Abd ar-Rahman from al-Hasan b. as-Sari from Jabir b. Yazeed al-Ju`fi.

He said: I asked Abu Ja`far عليه السلام something about monotheism (tawhid), so he said: Allah, whose names are holy and by them He is called, is exalted by His being. He is one; united solitarily in His oneness. He then made His creatures and thus He is one, self-sufficient (samad), and holy. He is worshiped by all things, and all things depend on Him. His knowledge expands over all things. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 320)
