    IM Hussain got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in #7 Imam Kadhim (as) [OFFICIAL THREAD]   
    A Brief Look into the Life of Imam Musa al-Kadhim.
    His Parents and Birth
    His mother, Umme Hamida was a slave girl who was brought to Madina and bought by the fifth Imam for his son for 17 dirhams. The first thing that he told her was : "You are Hamida (the praised one) in this world and Mahmuda (praiseworthy) in the hereafter".
    When the women of Madina used to come to the sixth Imam to ask masails he used to send them to Umme Hamida saying: "Her answers will be those given by me".
    Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (A.S.) was born in Abwa (a place between Makkah and Madina). It is here that Bibi Amina (Prophet Muhammad's (S.A.W.) mother) is buried. Imam was born when his parents were returning from Mecca. As soon as he was born he did Sajda reciting Kalima and bearing witness to the Imaamate of all the other Imams including his own.
    Childhood
    He is one of the Imams whose miracles in childhood are reported extensively. Imam Ja'fer As-Sadiq (A.S.) repeatedly pointed out Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (A.S.) as his successor because he knew of the people who after his death would differ. (N.B. The Ismailis say Ismail (Imams eldest son who died whilst Imam Ja'fer Sadiq (A.S.) was still alive) was the seventh Imam. One of the sixth Imam's other sons - Abdullah also claimed Imaamate.)
    Yaqub Al-Saraaj visited the sixth Imam once who told him to greet his son Musa who was a week old in his cradle. Imam Musa replied to the salaam and told Yaqub to change his daughters name (Humayra) as it was a name not liked by Allah.
    Safwan (a companion of the 6th Imam) once saw the young Imam Musa teaching the lamb he was playing with to prostrate to Allah.
    Once when Imam was 5 years old, Abu Hanifa came to visit the sixth Imam. He asked Imam Musa (a.s.): "O son of the Prophet! What is your opinion about the deeds of man? Does he do them on his own free will or does God make him do them?".
    The 7th Imam replied : "The doings of man can have three possibilities:
    God compels a man to do them whilst he is helpless.
    Both God and man share the commitment.
    Man does them alone.
    If the first is true than God cannot punish man for sins he did not commit.
    If the second is true than too God cannot punish man for he is an equal partner.
    Then, we are naturally left with the third, that man is absolutely responsible for his own doings".
    His Titles
    (These were used to avoid using Imams name as the very mention of it would lead to arrest, torture, harassment and/or death.)
    Babul Hawaaij (Door of fulfilment of needs). Even after his death people have their needs fulfilled and do not return empty handed from his shrine (Ask especially for cure of physical illnesses, especially eyes).
    Kadhim (One who swallows his anger). Imam Musa (A.S.) lived in an era when the rulers were the cruelest ever. Their hatred for the Ahlul Bayt and their followers was intense. Imam's followers were constantly harassed and tortured. The last 19 years of his life was spent in prison. Despite all these hardships, he was always patient spending entire nights in the worship of Allah. His character even converted the prison wardens towards him.
    His Life and Works (Imamate)
    When his father was martyred (poisoned by the ruler Mansur Dawanaqi), Mansur asked the governor of Madina to behead all the trustees Imam had left. The governor (called Sulayman) wrote back to say that the 6th Imam had left 5 trustees of whom he (Mansur) was the first and Sulayman the second followed by Abdullah, Umme Hamida and Imam Musa (a.s.). Mansur kept quiet.
    After the sixth Imam's death Mansur encouraged the Ismaili sect to develop although he knew that Ismail had died 20 years before. At the same time the sixth Imam's other son Abdullah claimed Imamate (however he only lived 17 days after that).
    Mansur was busy building Baghdad after that (although the torture and killing of the followers of Ahlul Bayt continued) and left Imam Musa (A.S.) for a while in which Imam had a little time to teach true Islam.
    When Mansur died his son Mahdi came to power in 158 a.h. He increased the atrocities on the family and followers of Ahlul Bayt. Imam Musa (A.S.) advised his followers to practise Taqiyya (meaning not to show ones faith outwardly). Mahdi called Imam to Baghdad and imprisoned him releasing him after a while.
    After Mahdi came his son Musa who assumed the title Haadi. He only ruled for 15 months but the atrocities continued.
    After the death of Haadi came his brother Harun Rashid. It was he who introduced Backgammon, Chess and Music as Islamic culture (they are Haraam). Harun was told of the popularity of Imam Musa (A.S.) by Muhammad bin Ismail (Imam's nephew) and about the collection of khums.
    Harun was furious and wanting to prove his relationship to the Prophet went to the Prophets grave and greeted the Prophet addressing him as his uncle. Imam Musa (A.S.) was there and he addressed the Prophet as his grandfather. Imam then asked Harun that if the Prophet were to come and ask Harun for his daughters hand in marriage would he agree?
    Harun said "Yes". Imam said "That is the difference between you and me - my daughter would be haraam for the Prophet (mahram)".
    Harun had Imam arrested in the Prophet's mosque whilst Imam was praying. He was handcuffed and shackled and sent to Basra. A similar caravan was sent to Baghdad to fool Imam's followers. Imam was put into prison under the custody of Isa bin Ja'fer. After a year Isa wrote to Harun saying he could no longer imprison Imam as he could find only piety and righteousness in him.
    Harun had Imam moved to Baghdad under the custody of Fadhl bin Rabi who too became a follower of Imam. The prisons were so small that there was no room to stand and the food was a cup of water and two pieces of dry bread a day. Imam remained patient.
    Harun also hired people to kill Imam (It is reported that they were from England). They too on seeing Imam cried and refused to murder him even though they were paid to do so.
    Harun finally moved Imam in the care of Sindi bin Shahak (a very cruel man). Imam remained in prison for the last 19 years of his life.
    The 19 years of imprisonment gave the Shia population a little relief as the rulers concentrated on Imam. It enabled the Shias to disperse from Arabia to Iran, India etc. thus spreading Islam and it was one of the factors towards the popularity of the eighth Imam.
    Summary of his Life Works
    In a situation in which the family and followers of the Ahlul Bayt were being murdered and tortured Imam taught the true word of Allah. Through his character and piety he showed the meaning of tabligh living up to the hadith of the 6th Imam:
    "Acquire a true Muslim character and that shall spread Islam".
    In 183 A.H. Sindi had Imam killed with poisoned dates. Another narration says Imam was wrapped in a carpet and he was suffocated and stamped on. His body was left on the bridge of Baghdad and an announcement was made for all to come and see him.
    When Harun Rashid's brother Sulayman heard of this he was furious and arranged for his burial in a Quraysh cemetery outside Baghdad (the eighth Imam gave ghusl and kafan). A town grew around the tomb of Imam called Kadhmain (meaning the two Kadhims) since the ninth Imam is also buried there.
    His Children
    He had 19 sons and 18 daughters. The most famous of his sons is his successor, Imam Ali Ar-Ridha (a.s.) and the most famous of his daughters is Fatima Kubra known as Masuma Qum who is buried in Qum.

    IM Hussain got a reaction from Agora in $10 Million Mosque In Israel   
    http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=203
     
    The president of Russia-s republic of Chechnya has inaugurated a new, $10 million mosque in an Arab village in Israel.

    Ramzan Kadyrov said on Sunday that it was an honor to visit -this good and holy land- during a stop in the village of Abu Ghosh.

    Isa Jabar, the village-s mayor, says Chechnya donated $6 million for the mosque. He says some villagers trace their ancestry to 16th century Chechnya and the Caucus region. -The mosque will become a symbol of Abu Gosh,- he said, -and even though this is a religious structure, it will also be a symbol of the brotherhood between religions and peoples. Three of the minarets symbolize the three monotheistic religions and the fourth minaret represents the rest of the world-s religions.-

    The mosque was built in the Ottoman Turkish style, the favored architectural style in Chechnya. It is situated not far from Route 1, and features four minarets, making it the only mosque of its kind in Israel.

    Fatima Zahra: The Supreme Example of a Perfect Human Being 
     
    http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=187
     
    Fatima al-Zahraa belongs to the noblest family ever existing throughout the whole history of mankind. Her distinguished father was the very last messenger of Allah, a personality that the Holy Quran introduces him as Oswatun Hasanah (the Best Paradigm). Mother of Holy Fatima was a pure lady named Khadija, a godly woman with unparalleled virtues and merits, who dedicated all her wealth for the sake of promotion of Islam. According to the Islamic calendar, Fatima Zahra was born in the 20th day of Arabic lunar month Jamadi al-Thani, five years after Bi-tha (appointment of  Mohammad to the position of divine prophethood) and 8 years before Hegira (immigration of the Holy Prophet from Mecca to Medina).

    The story of her birth is a wonderful one. The Prophet  – through a divine command – was ordered to seclude himself from contact with Khadija for 40 days. Despite all his love for his dear wife, the Holy Prophet did not go home in compliance with Allah-s order. During the whole 40-day period of his seclusion, Mohammad was engaged in prayers, fasting, and spiritual connections with his Lord. The Holy Prophet  had sent a courier to Khadija to notify her of the matter and assure her that there was nothing wrong with her and that the event had happened as a result of Allah`s command.

    When the seclusion stage came to its end, at the time of Iftar (while the Holy Prophet was preparing himself to end his fasting by eating food), he heard the familiar voice of Archangel Gabriel: "Allah sends His salaams (peace) to you! Get ready to receive the celestial gift from your Lord!" Then angels brought down a tray full of heavenly fruits for Mohammad . Gabriel  told him: "Eat from this heavenly dish tonight; then go to Khadija; Almighty Allah has willed to create a pure child out of this blissful food."

    Thus Fatima was conceived from the fruits of paradise.

    The grille-construction cadre of the holy shrine of al-Abbas progressed to the advanced stages that include assembling the triangles of the holy grille.

    The manager of the grille-construction cadre, Mr. Raad Hassan al-Khafaji, clarified “There are 14 triangles that surround the upper section of the grille. These new triangles were made and designed similarly to the prior triangles that are placed on the current grille with inscriptions and plant-designed decorations, which have been adapted from experts. This process requires accuracy because it is done manually not with any machinery and that needs extra effort and time.”

    Al-Khafaji added "Each triangle weighs 5kg, measures 1mm in thickness, 60cm in width and 1m in length. All were made using 99.9 carat silver and 24 carat gold in order to gain elegance and greater resistance."

    It is worth to mention that the design of the new grille is practically identical comparing it to the current grille, but with several additions, upgrades and modifications. The reason behind keeping this unique design is its exceptionality from all the other grilles as this grille was made in 1964 under the auspices of the supreme religious authority at that time, Ayatollah Sayyid Muhsin al-Hakeem.

    IM Hussain got a reaction from PenOfTruth in Constructing The Holy Grille Of Al-Abbas   
    http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=131
     
    The grille-construction cadre of the holy shrine of al-Abbas progressed to the advanced stages that include assembling the triangles of the holy grille.

    The manager of the grille-construction cadre, Mr. Raad Hassan al-Khafaji, clarified “There are 14 triangles that surround the upper section of the grille. These new triangles were made and designed similarly to the prior triangles that are placed on the current grille with inscriptions and plant-designed decorations, which have been adapted from experts. This process requires accuracy because it is done manually not with any machinery and that needs extra effort and time.”

    Al-Khafaji added "Each triangle weighs 5kg, measures 1mm in thickness, 60cm in width and 1m in length. All were made using 99.9 carat silver and 24 carat gold in order to gain elegance and greater resistance."

    It is worth to mention that the design of the new grille is practically identical comparing it to the current grille, but with several additions, upgrades and modifications. The reason behind keeping this unique design is its exceptionality from all the other grilles as this grille was made in 1964 under the auspices of the supreme religious authority at that time, Ayatollah Sayyid Muhsin al-Hakeem.

    Islam and Racism

    The "Unity" is the basis of Islamic theology. and therefore "Unity" is the ground of its philosophy of society. All humanity is one; a great unit. Its individuals are members of one society incorporate, which is so comprehensive that it includes all differences within its oneness. The many find within the one that brotherhood, affection, friendliness and human blood-relationship which is of the essence. Hence distinctions do not become differences - not colour, nor culture, nor class, nor custom, nor conversational idiom. Mutual respect as fellow-humans in pursuit of the common good is the rule throughout the world-wide society of Islam, without superiority or inferiority, since all mankind were created in one human soul to start with, from whom man and woman, black and white, poor and rich, civilised and savage, all evolve, sharing one common humanity Truly "God made of one flesh all the nations upon earth it haply they may feel after Him and find Him."

    So it is written (Qur-an: Sura Nisa "The Women" 1st verse). "Reverence God Who created you all from one person", leaving no room for nationalistic divisions. Differences in skin and tongue are merely tokens of the Creator-s power. They call on men to study the Holy Will and Might of Him Who from one elemental root created so many variations of colour countenance and conversation : as it is written (Qur-an: Sura Ar-Room "Rome": verse 21) "Signs of His Power are His creation of heaven and of earth, and the varieties of tongues and skins; in all of which are sermons for the wise."

    It is further written (Qur-an : Sura II, Baqara "The Heifer" verse 213): "Mankind was one single nation. Then we sent messengers to them to give them glad tidings and warnings; and with them we sent the Book in truth to judge between people in matters wherein they differed . . . and God by His grace guided believers to the common truth on points about which they differed; for God guides whom He will onto a path that is straight." This verse reveals that in the beginning mankind was one single nation without differences or splits or conflicts but enjoying unity, cooperation and harmony. The martyred Imam Ali left us the priceless legacy of the Nahj-ul-Balaghe, amongst which is his historic address to Malek al-Ashtar in which he expresses this truth as follows: "Make thine heart a throne of mercy towards thy people. Show them perfect love and care. Never treat them as a ravening beast that tears and rends their properties and their persons. For they are in one of two groups. Either they are thy brothers in the Faith- or they are thy fellow-human beings of one flesh with thine own." This broad view embraces all races, all cultures, all tongues.

    Unity and union amongst individuals will subsist under the aegis of unity of thought and spirit, oneness of conviction and aim; nor can any unity obtain save under that orderliness. Should a society fall into division of thought and conviction, its bonds of affection will be loosened and when adversity arises, material needs will increase differences, conflicts and tensions. That is why the strongest tie of unity amongst nations is the religious bond.

    It is in this bond of union that Islam has brought people and peoples together, freeing them from the trammels of division and difference, and calling them to establish the bases of accord and agreement in a society of brotherhood which is the natural state of man.

    Islam treats mankind as one great family of brothers and sisters. In the human family the relationship of father and child is a stronger bond than that of brotherhood. But the qualities of respect and of difference of age deprive the father-child relationship of full equality. That is why it is brotherhood which Islam exalts as the expression of that perfect and heartfelt affection which should reign within the human family. It should reign on the surface and in the depths. Brotherhood is therefore the Qur-an-s call. The most sublime levels of love and the most sincere of friendships are those which arise between Muslims. They are called brothers because of their brotherhood, because of the existence of the fact of this most tender and beautiful of manifestations of equality; it is not the command to be brothers which called the fact into existence. The command was uttered, but the natural upwelling of the spirit engendered by that surrender (tasleem) to God (which Islam is) issues in brotherhood. This brotherhood is deeper and higher than mere natural brotherliness, for it is the unity of a shared aim, the unity of shared convictions, the unity of joint beliefs, the unity of hearts.

    It is written (Qur-an: Sura, Hujurat "The Inner Apartments" verse 10): "Believers are a single brotherhood. Make peace amongst your brothers and fear God that ye may receive mercy."

    The Prophet decreed: "The members of the assembly of the believers are by love and affection one body, and any limb of that which is pained causes all the other limbs to suffer in sympathy. If any individual Muslim falls into a painful situation all the other members of the community must run to his help and share in his sorrow." (Safeenatu-l-Behar, Vol. I, p.13.)

    IM Hussain got a reaction from AnaAmmar1 in Arba-Een – All Roads Lead Towards Karbala   
    http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=85 Arba-een – All Roads Lead Towards Karbala2013-12-4 
     
     
    “Peace unto Husain, who established the true faith by giving his life in the way of Allah; a martyr who underwent untold hardships at the hand of rogues and transgressors! Peace on the hostage surrounded by the tightening circle of sorrow and grief; killed by a horde of savages.”

    Karbala is once again the cynosure of all eyes. As we go to the press, millions have already assembled on the land where history’s most heartrending tragedy occurred 1372 lunar years ago, while millions more are headed towards it from all over Iraq, as well as from Iran and other parts of the globe, for commemoration of Arba’een – the traditional 40th day after the anniversary of the immortal epic of Ashura.

    The deafening cries of “Ya Husain” is reverberating in and around Karbala, obviously in response to the lone voice of “hal min naserin yansorouni (is there any other helper to come to my aid)” raised by the Prophet’s Grandson on the afternoon of 10th Muharram 61 A.H. when all his companions and male kinsmen, including his 6-month infant son, Ali Asghar, had been brutally slaughtered by the bloodthirsty Omayyad hordes.

    Yazid, who masqueraded as caliph or political head of the Muslim realm, had thought of eradicating forever the fundamentals of Islam and the name of Prophet Muhammad by cruelly killing Imam Husain – whose merits are enshrined in the Holy Qur’an (3:61; 33:33; 42:23; 76:5-22, etc) – but his plot utterly failed, thanks to the unique jihad of the Martyr’s indomitable sister and son.

    Sayeda Zainab and Imam Zain al-Abedin, though captives in the tyrant’s court, quickly turned the tables on the regime through their eloquently electrifying sermons that ripped off the mask of hypocrisy from the face of the Omayyads, and forced Yazid to release them and send them back to Medina – but not before the Prophet’s granddaughter had held the Majlis al-Aza (mourning ceremony) in the enemy’s camp itself, thereby laying the foundations of the mourning ceremonies which the faithful have continued to hold all over the world in the months of Muharram and Safar ever since.

    Meanwhile, in Karbala, where the Omayyad hordes gave a state funeral with a military salute to their dead, but left the decapitated and dismembered bodies of Imam Husain and the other martyrs exposed to the sun and wind, the first pilgrim to the makeshift grave of the Prophet’s grandson was the Prophet’s venerable companion, Jaber ibn Abdullah al-Ansari.

    Now almost blind with age, the person who earlier was at the side of the Prophet to congratulate Imam Ali and Fatima Zahra at the birth of Imam Husain, threw himself on the grave with loud wails and lamentations.

    “Habib man la ya’raf al-habib (how could a friend not recognize a friend)”, moaned Jaber and saluted the Imam with a lengthy salutation starting with the words: “As-salamo alaika ya Aba Abdallah (peace be upon you O Aba Abdallah).” Today, not just the pilgrims to the holy shrine in Karbala, but the devotees of the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt all over the world, have kept this virtuous tradition alive by saluting the Master of Martyrs on the day of Arba’een.

    Interestingly, the Prophet’s 11th Infallible Successor, Imam Hasan al-Askari, has considered the Ziyarat al-Arba’een to be one of the five signs of a true believer. The other four signs are: performing 51 rak’ats of prayer daily (17 obligatory plus 34 recommended), reciting Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem in a raised voice during the daily ritual prayers, wearing ring on a finger of the right hand, and prostrating on the clay during sajdah in the ritual prayers.
