From Ya`qūb al-Aḥmar said, I said to Abī `Abd Allāh (عليه السلام): “May I be your random, I am afflicted with worries and things have not remained from the good (with me), even it has left me wandering, until the Qur’ān had left me. He (the narrator) said: “So he frightened from that when I mentioned the Qur’ān, then he (عليه السلام)said: “If a man forgets a surah from the Qur’ān, it will come to him on the Day of Judgment, in order to honour him from ranks from some of the ranks, so it will say: ‘al-Salaaamu `Alayka’, and (he will say) ‘Wa `alayka al-Salaam, who are you?’. It will say: ‘I am such and such surah you lost me and abandoned me. And if you would have clung to me, I would make you reach this rank, then it pointed his finger. Then he (عليه السلام) said: ‘With you is the Qur’ān, learn it! For verily from the mean are those who learn the Qur’ān and it is said to them ‘O so and so recite’, and from them are those who learn it to seek a voice, so it will be said: ‘So and so had a beautiful voice’, and there is nothing good from that, from those who learn it, establish with it in night and the day and do not take heed if people know that, or if people do not know it”

A man asked Imam ar-Rida [a], "May I be your sacrifice! [is this permissible:] a man is with a group, and there are conversations between them wherein they joke and laugh."

The Imam said, "There is no problem - as long as it (indecency) does not occur."

Then, the Imam said, "A bedouin man used to come to the Messenger of Allah and give him some things as gifts, then he (the bedouin) used to [jokingly] say to him: 'Pay us the price of our gifts!' and the Messenger of Allah used to laugh. So whenever he was sad, he would say, 'What is the bedouine man up to? If only he could come to us now.'

are these people?' They said:" (We are) believers, O Messenger of Allãh!' He said: 'What is the grade of your belief?' They said: 'Patience against calmity, thankful against trials, and content with the Divine decree.' The Messenger of Allãh (ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.) then said: 'These are the attributes of

those who are patient among the scholars that due to the access of knowledge they are near to (the rank) of prophets. If you are as you described, then do not construct what you do not live in, and do not collect what you do not eat and fear Allãh to Whom you will be returned.' "

Very Important narration about feeding believers

“Abu Abd Allah Imam Sadiq (as), has said, "Feeding a believer is, indeed, more beloved to me than setting free ten slaves and performing ten Hajj.’ I (the narrator) then asked, ‘Is it like setting free ten slaves and performing ten Hajj?’

He has said that the Imam said, ‘O Nasr, if you do not feed him he will die or you will humiliate him, then he will go to one who is a bitter enemy (Nasibi) of the Imam and will ask him for help. Death is better for him than asking help from such enemy of the Imam. O Nasr, giving life to a believer is like giving life to all mankind. If you do not feed him you have caused his death, if you feed him you have given him life."

ـ رُويَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) أنَّه قالَ: إنَّ على كُلِّ مُسلمٍ في كلِّ يَومٍ صَدَقةً، قيلَ: مَن يُطِيقُ ذلكَ؟ قالَ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): إماطَتُكَ الأذى عنِ الطَّريقِ صَدَقةٌ، وإرشادُكَ الرَّجُلَ إلى الطَّريقِ صَدَقةٌ، وعِيادَتُكَ المَريضَ صَدَقةٌ، وأمرُكَ بالمَعروفِ صَدَقةٌ، ونَهيُكَ عنِ المُنكَرِ صَدَقةٌ، ورَدُّكَ السَّلامَ صَدَقَةٌ.

‪The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘Verily every single Muslim is to give in charity every single day.’ When asked who would be capable of such a thing, he replied, ‘Your removal of an obstacle from the road is a charitable act; your guiding someone the way is a charitable act; your visiting the sick is a charitable act; your enjoinment of good to others is a charitable act; your forbidding others from wrongdoing is a charitable act, and your returning the greeting of peace is a charitable act.’[ibid. v. 75, p. 50, no. 4]

The Muslim Ummah at the End of the Time

The Holy Prophet (S) said: "There will come a time for people that: they will not respect their scholars except for their good clothing; they will not hearken to the Qur'an except for the pleasant voice; and they will not worship Allah except for during the fasting month; there will be no shyness in their women, no patience in their poor ones; and no prosperity for their rich ones, they will not be contented with a small (portion), and they will not be satiated with abundance. They will strive (only) for their stomach; their religion is their money (wealth); their women are their Qiblah (direction of worship); and their homes are their mosques; they run away from their scholars just as lambs run away from wolves.

 

Then, when they become like that, the Lord will afflict them with three conditions. At first, He takes the prosperity from their properties. The second is that a cruel ruler will dominate them. The third is that they will pass away from this world without having (true) Faith."

عِبَادَةً وَ أَشَدَّهُمْ حُبّاً لِمُوسَى وَ هَارُونَ وَ ذُرِّيَّتِهِمَا ( عليهما السلام ) فَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِلَى مُوسَى ( عليه السلام ) أَنْ أَثْبِتْ لَهُمْ هَذَا الِاسْمَ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ فَإِنِّي قَدْ سَمَّيْتُهُمْ بِهِ وَ نَحَلْتُهُمْ إِيَّاهُ فَأَثْبَتَ مُوسَى ( عليه السلام ) الِاسْمَ لَهُمْ ثُمَّ ذَخَرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَكُمْ هَذَا الِاسْمَ حَتَّى نَحَلَكُمُوهُ يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ رَفَضُوا الْخَيْرَ وَ رَفَضْتُمُ الشَّرَّ افْتَرَقَ النَّاسُ آُلَّ فِرْقَةٍ وَ تَشَعَّبُوا آُلَّ شُعْبَةٍ فَانْشَعَبْتُمْ مَعَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِ نَبِيِّكُمْ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) وَ ذَهَبْتُمْ حَيْثُ ذَهَبُوا وَ اخْتَرْتُمْ مَنِ اخْتَارَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَ أَرَدْتُمْ مَنْ أَرَادَ اللَّهُ فَأَبْشِرُوا ثُمَّ أَبْشِرُوا فَأَنْتُمْ وَ اللَّهِ الْمَرْحُومُونَ الْمُتَقَبَّلُ مِنْ مُحْسِنِكُمْ وَ الْمُتَجَاوَزُ عَنْ مُسِيئِكُمْ مَنْ لَمْ يَأْتِ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بِمَا أَنْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ لَمْ يُتَقَبَّلْ مِنْهُ حَسَنَةٌ وَ لَمْ يُتَجَاوَزْ لَهُ عَنْ سَيِّئَةٍ يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ فَهَلْ سَرَرْتُكَ قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ زِدْنِي

 

He said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you, we are being named by a name which is breaking our backs, and killing our hearts, and our blood has been declared lawful to be shed in the Hadeeth which are being narrated to them from their scholars’. Abu Abdullah said: ‘Is it ‘Al-Rafiza’ (the rejectors)?’ He said, ‘Yes’. He said: ‘No, by Allah, they are not the ones who have named you as such, but it is Allah Who has Named you all with it’.

 

But, do you know, O Abu Muhammad that seventy men from the Children of Israel rejected the Pharaoh and his people, when they detected his misguidance. So they attached themselves with Musa when they detected his guidance. So they were named (referred to) in the army of Musa as Al-Rafiza (The Rejectors) because they had rejected the Pharaoh, and they were the most intense worshippers in that army, and very intense in their love for Musa and Haroun and their offspring.

 

So Allah Mighty and Majestic Revealed unto Musa that: “Establish this name for them in the Torah, for I has Named them with it, and have Gifted it to them”. So Musa established the name for them, then Allah Mighty and Majestic Reserved this name for you all to the extent that we have gifted it to you.

 

O Abu Muhammad, they rejected the good, and you have rejected the evil. All the people have separated into sects, and they all divided into branches. You have branched out with the People of the Household of your Prophet, and you did what they did, and you chose what Allah had Chosen for you, and you wanted what Allah wanted. So received glad tidings upon glad tidings, for By Allah, you (Shiites) are ones with whom Allah has been Merciful, the ones whose good deeds will be Accepted, and the sins being Overlooked. The one who does not come to Allah Mighty and Majestic, with what you are upon, on the Day of Judgement, the good deeds will not be Accepted from him, nor will his sins be Overlooked. O Abu Muhammad, have I made you happy?’ He said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you, increase it for me’.

~ 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)

مِفتاحُ العِلمِ / The Key to Knowledge

1ـ رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): العِلمُ خَزائنُ ومَفاتِيحُهُ السُّؤالُ، فَاسألُوا رَحِمَكُمُ اللّه‏ُ فإنّهُ يُؤجَرُ أربَعةٌ: السائلُ ، والمُتَكلِّمُ ، والمُستَمِعُ ، والمُحِبُّ لَهُم.

1– The Prophet SA said, 'Knowledge is a treasury, the key to which is the question, so ask and Allah will have mercy on you for verily four people are rewarded [for that question]: the questioner, the speaker, the listener, and the one that admires them.’[Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 41]

Ahmad b. Muhammad (reliable) from al-Hasan b. Mahbub (reliable) from `Amr b. Abi ‘l-Miqdam (reliable) from Jabir b. Yazid al-Ju`fi (reliable) from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام.  

He said: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآلهsaid: The learned and the learner are partners in reward.  For the learned there are two rewards and for the learner there is (one) reward.  And there is no good in other than that.
