#6 Imam Sadiq (as) [OFFICIAL THREAD]

Recommended Posts

Imam Sadiq (a.s.), When a Shia leaves his house with the intention of performing Imam Husain's (a.s.) ziarat, he is accompanied by 700 angels. They safeguard him from above and below, from the right and the left, from the front and the back, till such a time that he reaches his destination.

Imam al-Sadiq (as) has reported Allah’s Messenger as saying that Allah Almighty says:

"A servant cannot seek nearness to Me through any means that may be more beloved to Me than (carrying out) religious duties. He may seek My nearness through supererogatory prayers so that I may love him. If I do, I will be his hearing, his sight, his tongue, and his hand. Then, I will certainly answer him when he prays Me and I will grant him that which he asks from Me."

Ref: Al-Kafi: 352/2, H 7.

Imam Ja'far Sadiq (as) :

"Reciting The Qur'an From The Pages Of The Qur'an (To Look At It And Recite It - Not From Memory ) Lightens The Punishment Of One's Mother And Father, Even If They Are Both Disbelievers."

[Ref: Usool Kafi, Volume 2, Page 613]

Golden Sayings of IMAM JAFAR AS SADIQ(A.S):

  • The person moving to help his Momin brothers is like the person who is walking between Safa and Marwa.
  • He who treats people kindly will be accepted as arbiter.
  • To trust everybody in times of injustice and cheating is disability.
  • To recognize the actuality of your friend, you should enrage him. If he keeps up his friendship, he is true friend lest, he is false.
  • Do not appreciate one's affection before you enrage him three times.
  • Do not trust your friend perfectly, because the knockdown of the trustful is incurable.
  • Islam is a definite rank. Faith is one rank higher than Islam. Conviction is one rank higher than faith. People have been given a rank lower than conviction.
  • The desire for the worldly pleasures causes grief and sadness. Abstinence from the worldly pleasures brings about the rest of both heart and body.
  • He who gains oppression is not gaining welfare. He who mistreats people should not complain when people mistreat him.
  • In homelands, exchanging visits is the means of association. In travel, correspondence is the means of association.
  • Shaking hands is the perfect greeting of the resident and embracement is the perfect greeting of the traveler.
  • A Muslim always has three characteristics: knowledge about the religion, good management of life, and perseverance in the faces of calamities.
  • An actual believer is that whose sexual appetite does not overcome him and whose stomach does not shame him.
  • A twenty-year friendship is kinship.
  • Favors should be done only to the highborn or the religious. Those who show gratitude are very few.
  • Enjoining good and forbidding evil should be practiced with a faithful believer that he would learn a lesson, or an ignorant that he would earn. Enjoining good and forbidding evil become surely worthless when they are applied to the powerful tyrants.
  • As some people showed ingratitude for Allah's graces, He changed the graces into crises. As other people showed steadfastness against the misfortunes that inflicted them, Allah changed the misfortunes into graces.
  • Imam al-Sadiq (as) was asked about personality, he answered: Personality stands for that Allah should not see you in situations against which He warned, and miss you in situations of which He ordered.
  • Thank him who did you favor, and confer upon him who thanked you. Graces that are shown gratitude will not be removed while those that are shown ingratitude will not persist. Thanks increase the graces and saves against poverty.
  • To miss a need is better than asking it from other than its people. Bad mannerism in a misfortune is more catastrophic than the misfortune itself.
  • As a man asked him a short item of instruction that collects the welfare of this world and the world to come, the Holy Imam al-Sadiq (as) said: Never tell untruths.
  • Imam al-Sadiq (as) was asked about eloquence. He answered: Eloquence is to express the idea in as few as possible words. The eloquent is that who attains his demand in the least effort.
  • Debt is grief at night and humility in day.
  • If your worldly demands are attainable, you should check your religion.
  • Treat your fathers piously so that your sons will treat you piously. Keep yourselves away from the strange women so that your harem will be chaste.
  • Salutation is voluntary while responding is obligatory.
  • Do not answer those who speak before they greet you.
  • Shake hands, because this will confiscate malice.
  • Fear Allah even if to some extent. Construct a screen between Him and you even if transparent.
  • As for those who control themselves in rage, desire, fear, and lust, Allah will prevent Hell from burning their bodies.
  • Everything has limits. The limit of conviction is not to fear anything besides Allah.

~ All Prophets (as) acknowledge the superiority of the Imam's (as) ~

حدثنا السندى بن محمد عن يونس بن يعقوب عن عبدالاعلى قال قال ابو عبدالله عليه السلام مانبئى نبى قط الا بمعرفة حقنا وبفضلنا عمن سوانا

Narrated to us Al-Sanady Bin Muhammad, from Yunus Bin Yaqoub, from Abdul Aala who said;

Abu Abdullah Imam Sadiq (as) said: "No Prophet (as) has ever been a Prophet (as) at all except by recognizing Our rights, and by preferring Us over every one other than us."

[source: Basair al-Darajaat, Vol. 1, Chapter. 9, Hadees. 1]
Hadees is Saheeh (authentic) as per the Sanad (chain of narrators). Also there are multiple narrations with the same meaning.

When Imam Sadiq (a) was reciting the following verse: 'Those who, when spending, are neither wasteful nor tightfisted, and moderation lies between these [extremes].'[8], he picked up a handful of small stones and while holding his fist closed, said: This is the rigidness which God (awj) has mentioned in his book. He then picked up another handful and opening his fist, dropped them all. At this point he said: This is israaf. He then picked up another handful and poured out a portion while holding onto another portion of it. He then said: This is the middle limit.

The stance of the ISIS to establish "The Islamic state - الدولة الإسلامية" can only be completely finished by the "State of al-Qaim (as) - دولة القائم" .

قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: يكون شيعتنا في دولة القائم عليه السلام سنام الارض وحكامها، يعطى كل رجل منهم قوة أربعين رجلا

Imam Sadiq (as) said, "Our Shias in the State of al-Qaim (as) will be the rulers of the earth and every man will be given the strength of 40 men"

[source: Bihar, Vol. 52, Pg. 372]

Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad  al-Sādiq (a.s.) said:

 

"A person who would like to be among the companions of al-Qa’im should be in a state of (active) waiting (Intizaar), and perform all of his deeds with Wara’ [a level higher than Taqwa] and with the most beautiful etiquette and then one will be counted as being in a state of (true) waiting (Intizaar). Then if such a person was to die and al-Qa’im was to make his advent after this, then that person would receive the reward as the one who witnessed his (al-Mahdi’s) advent.”

حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عَبْدِي يَرْفَعُهُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: أَبَى اللَّهُ أَنْ يُجْرِيَ الْأَشْيَاءَ إِلَّا بِالْأَسْبَابِ فَجَعَلَ لِكُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ سَبَباً وَ جَعَلَ لِكُلِّ سَبَبٍ شَرْحاً وَ جَعَلَ لِكُلِّ شَرْحٍ مِفْتَاحاً وَ جَعَلَ لِكُلِ‏ مِفْتَاحٍ‏ عِلْماً وَ جَعَلَ لِكُلِّ عِلْمٍ بَاباً نَاطِقاً مَنْ عَرَفَهُ عَرَفَ اللَّهَ وَ مَنْ أَنْكَرَهُ أَنْكَرَ اللَّهَ ذَلِكَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص وَ نَحْن‏



 

Narrated Ali bin Mohammad, from Mohammad bin Isa, from Abdi upto Abi Abdillah (as);

 

Imam Sadiq (as) said, "Allah refuses to implement(carry out) anything without a reason and so He has made a reason for everything and has made explanation for every reason and has made key for every explanation, and has made knowledge for every key and for every knowledge he has made speaking door, The one who recognizes Him (the speaking door) recognizes Allah and the one who rejects Him rejects Allah. That (speaking door) is Prophet of Allah (saww) and Us."

Imam Jafar Sadeq (A.S) said to a man:

 

What's meant by a young person (Al-Fata) in your estimation?

 

The man replied: "a youth". The Imam (A.S) replied: "No. the young person (Al-Fata) is the true believer. Surely the companions of the cave (Ashab Kahf) were all old people, however Allah, Glory and Greatness be to him, called them youth who believed in Him."

Those who believe in Imamat are already in heaven ...

 

عنه عن عمر بن عبد العزيز عن أبي داود الحداد عن موسى بن بكر قال كنا عند أبي عبد الله (ع) فقال رجل في المجلس أسأل الله الجنة فقال أبو عبد الله (ع) أنتم في الجنة فاسألوا الله أن لا يخرجكم منها. فقلنا جعلنا فداك نحن في الدنيا فقال أ لستم تقرون بإمامتنا قالوا نعم فقال هذامعنى الجنة الذي من أقر به كان في الجنة فاسألوا الله أن لا يسلبكم

 

Narrated from Umar bin Abdul Azeez, from Abi Dawood al-Haddad, from Moosa bin Bakr who said:

 

"We were with Abi Abdillah Imam Sadiq (as), when a person in the gathering said, "I ask Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì for Heaven". Imam Sadiq (as) said, "You are already in Heaven. Ask Allah that He does not remove you from it."

We asked the Imam (as), "May we be sacrificed for You. We are in this world now."

Imam (as) said, "Don't you acknowledge/accept Our Imamat?" They said, "Yes". Imam (as) said, "This is the meaning of heaven. The one who accepts our Imamat is in Heaven, so ask Allah that He does not take it away from you.

 

[source: al-Mahasin, Vol. 1, Pg. 161]

 

و بهذا الإسناد قال أبو عبد الله (عليه الشلام) دياركم لكم جنة و قبوركم لكم جنة للجنة خلقتم و إلى الجنة تصيرون

 

Abu Abdillah Imam Sadiq (as) said, "Your houses are heaven for you and Your graves are heaven for you. You are created for heaven and you are moving towards heaven."

ومنها: ما روي عن الصادق، عن آبائه عليهم السلام أن الحسن عليه السلام قال لأهل بيتهإني أموت بالسم، كما مات رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فقالوا: ومن يفعل ذلكقال: امرأتي جعدة بنت الأشعث بن قيس، فإن معاوية يدس إليها ويأمرها بذلك



 

Narrated from Imam Sadiq (as) from His Fathers (as) that Imam Hasan (as) said to His family, "Indeed I will die due to Poison similar to how the Prophet (saww) died. They said, "Who will do this?" Imam (as) said, "My wife Jo'adah bint al-Ash'as bin Qais (la), verily Muawiya (la) will order her to do this...."

In a long narration from Imam Sadiq (as):


 


وأول من يحكم فيهم محسن بن علي عليه السلام وفي قاتله، ثم في قنفذ فيؤتيان هو وصاحبه فيضربان بسياط مِن نار ، لو وقع سوط منها على البحار لغلت من مشرقها إلى مَغربها ، ولو وضعت على جبال الدُّنيا لذابت حتّى تصير رماداً فيضربان بها ، ثمَّ يجثو أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام


 


The first judgment will be between Muhsin ibn 'Ali (as) and his killer - referring to the second usurper. Then he will be brought forth along with Qunfudh and they will be lashed with whips of fire. The whips will be such that if one of them hits the oceans, all of the oceans will boil from the east to the west and if (even one whip) touches the mountains, they will all melt and turn to ash.

Rainy Night

It was a rainy night. Imam Sadiq (p) went out of home alone in a dark night and nobody knew that. He was going to “zellato bani saeedah” when suddenly “Mualla Ibn Khunais”, one of his companions, noticed that Imam went out.

“I couldn’t leave him alone” Mualla said to himself and followed him silently with a safe distance. Mualla was following him while dramatically realized that something fell down. Mualla heard Imam’s sound; “oh Allah, give it back to us please.”

At the time Mualla stepped forward and said hello to the Imam. Imam knew him by his sound. Mualla realized what had fallen down. He found some pieces of bread on the ground. “Pick these pieces of bread up and give them to me.” It was a large amount of bread, which was difficult for one person to carry. “Would you please let me help you” Mualla said. “No, it’s not necessary, I have prior claim to this.” Imam answered.

Imam carried it and they both arrived to “zellato bani saeedah”. It was a place for poor people who didn’t own any houses or places to live. Everyone was asleep there. Imam himself put the bread under their cloth and didn’t leave anyone.

The Imam was going to come back when Mualla asked him:

“Are these people that you fed your shias?”

“No, they aren’t; they don’t know me as their Imam. If they believed, I would bring salt too.” Imam answered.

A man who was the father of scientific thought, who revealed such concepts which become the foundations of subjects. He a.s was the one who divided knowledge on the basis of its nature. Fiqh, Science and Akhlaq, He a.s was the father of Islamic Jurisprudence whose name is known by the scholars of Jurisprudence but none utter his praise, he was teacher of chemist like Jabir-Ibn-Hayan, and no one has ever heard his name in the field of Chemistry. Alas!

Imam Jafar Sadiq (as)

1. He who marries a woman for the hope of her wealth, Allah leaves him with only that wealth.

2. Indeed the cognition & knowing of Allah provides comfort in all terrors & frights. And it is the companion in all solitudes & loneliness & the light in all darkness & energy in all weaknesses & feeblenesses & the cure of all diseases & aliments.

3. The person who sees his brother (religious) involved (in a problem) which is the cause of his trouble & dislike ness & he does not remove it from him although he can do that, has committed a dishonesty with him.

4. Be careful of your knowledge and see from whom you get it.

5. Nothing follows a person after his death except three virtues & qualities. 
 a. The study & charity that he may have executed by the grace of Allah in his life & which continues on after his death.
 b. And a decent & good tradition (left over by him) which is put into practice (after his death).
 c. A pious son who prays for him.

6. In no way is Allah worshipped better than by fulfilling the right of a believer.

7. Momin is the brother of a Momin just like one single body, (so that) if one part of it has a complaint the entire body feels & receives the pain & trouble. And their souls are from a single soul. And indeed the tie & connection of the faithful's should to the soul of Allah is more powerful & strengthener than the connection of the rays of sun with it.

8. Surely, a little action (of worshipping) with piety is better than many deeds with no virtue.

9. The smallest thing which turns a man out of faith is that he keeps counting the faults, lapses missteps & flaws of his brother in faith so that one day he may reprimand him. (by those weaknesses)

10. It is from the disposition & manners of the ignorant that he answers before listening & quarrel before understanding & gives judgment upon what he is unaware of.

11. The person who acts & practices short of vision is similar to the traveler of a wrong avenue. So the speed of his journey would not but only increase his distance.

12. The most beloved of the brothers to me is the one who presents & indicates to me my faults & short comings.

13. Be the inviters & callers of people towards beneficence without (using) your tongue, so that they may observer your endeavor & efforts, & truth & piety.

14. Seventy sins of ignorant are forgiven before one sin of a scholar is forgiven.

15. Indeed when the sin is committed by a servant secretly, it does not harm but the one who commits it. Where as, if it is committed openly & conspicuously & a restraints is not put upon it then it harms the general public.

16. The love of this fleeting world is the origin of all vices.

17. A man does not become proud hearted & arrogant but for the self abjection which he finds in his soul.

18. He who has even a little arrogance in his heart will not be allowed to enter Heaven.

19. Toiling & laboring hard for one's family is like becoming the warrior of a holy war on the course of Allah.

20. He who restrains his anger, Allah will cover his blemishes.

A tradition of Imam Sadiq AS says, "Those of you who please a believer should not think that you have pleased only this believer. By Allah! He has pleased us! [Aimmah] Rather by Allah! He has pleased the Messenger of Allah SA." (Al-Kafi Vol. 2 Pg. 189)

67 - الغيبة للنعماني: روي عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام: أنه قال: من دخل في هذا الدين بالرجال أخرجه منه الرجال كما أدخلوه فيه، ومن دخل فيه بالكتاب والسنة زالت الجبال قبل أن يزول.

Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq [a] said, "Whoever enters this religion due to people will also leave it due to people just as he entered it. And, whoever enters it due to the Book and the Sunna, then mountains would fall before he would ever fall." (Nu`mani's Ghayba)
