  1. I'd request the mods to cancel the redundant space before the highlighted word and combine the last two lines with the paragraph above. also remove/hide this post of mine when done. Thankyou. (i could've done it myself but I don't see the option to edit it perhaps due to me not being an advanced member yet)
  2. Al Daqaq, from Al Kulayni, from Ibn Aamir, from Al Moalla who said, ‘The Imam (a) was asked, ‘How does Allah Know?’ He (a) said: ‘He Knows, and Desires, and Wills, and Pre-determines, and Ordains, and Accomplishes, and Accomplishes what He Ordains, and Ordains What He Pre-determines, and Pre-determines what He Wills. So, by His Knowledge was the Desired, and by His Desire was the Will, and by His Will was the destiny, and by His Destining was the Ordainment, and by His Ordainment was the accomplishment. Thus, the Knowledge preceded upon the Desire, and the Desire was second, and the Will was third, and the Destiny occurred upon the Ordainment with the Accomplishment. Then, for Allah there is change of Decision regarding whatever He Knows, whenever He so Desires, and regarding whatever He Wills as the destiny of the things. So, when the Ordainment occurs with the Accomplishment, then there is no change of Decision, and the Knowledge is with the known before its coming into being, and the Desire regarding the desired is before its ‘whereness’, and the Will regarding the intended is before its standing, and the destiny of these known matters is before their detail and their arrival, visually and quantitatively. And the Ordainment with the Accomplishment, it is the conclusion of the effects with the bodies realised by the senses, from the ones with colour and smell, and weight and measurement, and what crawls and climbs, from the humans and the Jinn, and bird and wild animals, and other than that from what can be detected by the senses. For Allah Blessed and Exalted is the change of Decision in it, from what there is no visualising for it. So, when the visualising occurs upon the understandable, the realised, then there is no change of mind, and Allah Does whatever He so Desires to. And by the Knowledge He Knows the thing before their coming into being, and by the Desire He Recognises their qualities, and their limits, and their growth before their manifestation; and by the Will He Distinguishes their selves regarding their colours, and their attributes, and their limitations; and by the Pre-determination He Determines their timings and Recognises their first and their last; and by the Ordainment He Manifests for the people, their places, and Points them upon these; and by the Accomplishment He Explains its reasons and Manifests its affair. That is a Determination of the Mighty, the Wise’’. [Bihar Al Anwaar – V 5, The book of Justice, Ch 3 H 27] https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/BiharAlAnwaar/BiharAlAnwaar_V5.pdf
  3. H 14455 – Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from one of his companions, and Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr altogether, from Muhammad Bin Abu Hamza, from Humran who said, (Extract) Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (a) said, So I (a) said: ‘Would it benefit you if you come to know that this command (Caliphate), when it goes, it would be quicker than the blink of an eye? If you come to know their condition in the Presence of Allah Mighty and Majestic and how it would be, you would have been intense in your hatred of them. And if you were to struggle, and the people of the earth were to struggle to include them in more severity than what they are already in from the sins, you would not be able to. So do not let Satan excite you. The Honour is for Allah and for His Messenger (s), and for the Believers, but the hypocrites do not know. Nay! The one who waits for our (a) Command (Uprising of Imam Mahdi (a)), and observes patient upon what he see from the sufferings and the fear, tomorrow he would be in our (a) group. (Here comes the signs) So if you were to see that the truth has died and its people have gone away, and you will see, that the injustice has encompassed the country, and you will see that for the

[Al Kaafi, Vol. 8, hadith of Aba Abdillah With al- mansour (la) In His Procession, #14455] https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/Alkafi-Volume8/Alkafi_Vol8_PI.pdf
  4. Ahmad Bin Ali Bin Ibrahim narrated to us, from his father, from his grandfather Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from Ahmad Bin Abu Nasr Al Bazanty who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far the second Muhammad (a) Ibn Ali Al Taqi (a), (9th Imam), that, ‘A group of adversaries are alleging that your father was named by Al-Mamoun as ‘Al-Reza’ when he (a) was satisfied with the mandate of his reign’. So he (a) said: ‘They are lying, By Allah, and slandering! But, it was Allah the High Who Named him (a) as ‘Al-Reza’ because he (a) was satisfied with Allah, Elevated is His Mention, with regards to Him Naming him (a), and was satisfied with His Rasool (s), and with the Imams (a) from after him, with His satisfaction’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said to him (a), ‘Were not each one of your past fathers satisfied with Allah the High and His Rasool (s), and the Imams (a)from after him (s)? So he (a) said: ‘Yes’. So I said, ‘So why was your father (in particular) named as ‘Al-Reza’, from in between them (a) all?’ He (a) said: ‘Because even the adversaries from his enemies were satisfied just as the conformists from his friends were, and that had never happened for anyone from his forefathers (a). Thus, it is due to that, he (a) was named, from in between them, as ‘Al-Reza’. [Al Illal Al Sharaie – V 1 Ch 171 H 1]
  5. (Kindly ignore the spellings and the wordings in the title. i had to improvise due to the character limit) ‘I said to Aba Abdullah Ja’far (a) Bin Muhammad Al-Sadiq (a), ‘O son of Rasool-Allah (s)! How did the day of Ashura come to be a day of difficulties, and gloom, and distress, and wailing, besides the day in which Rasool-Allah (s) passed away, and the day in which Fatima (a) passed away, and the day in which Amir Al-Momineen (a) was murdered, and the day in which Al-Hassan (a) was murdered by the poison?’ So he (a) said: ‘The day of Al-Husayn (a) was the day of the greatest difficulties from the entirety of the days, and that is that the Companions of the Cloak (As’haab Al-Kisaa) were the most prestigious of the creatures to Allah the High, and they (a) were five of them. So when the Prophet (a) passed away from among them (a), there remained Amir Al-Momineen (a), and Fatima (a), and Al-Hassan (a), and Al-Husayn (a). So there was among them, for the people was a condolence and a comfort. So when Fatima (a) passed away, in Amir Al-Momineen (a), and Al-Hassan (a), and Al-Husayn (a) there used to be condolence and comfort for the people. So when Amir Al-Momineen (a) passed away, in Al-Hassan (a) and Al-Husayn (a), there used to be condolence and comfort for the people. So when Al-Hassan (a) passed away, there used to be for the people, in Al-Husayn (a), a condolence and comfort for the people. So when Al-Husayn (a) was killed, there did not remain anyone from the Companions of the Cloak for the people, to be a condolence and comfort for the people. So, his going away was like the going away of all of them (a), and his remaining was like the remaining of all of them (a). Thus, it is due to that, his day became the day of the greatest difficulties’. Abdullah Al-fazal Al-Hashimy said, ‘So I said to him (a), ‘O son of Rasool-Allah (s)! So did not there become a condolence and comfort in Ali (a) Bin Al-Husyan (a), the like of what was for them in his forefathers (a)?’ So he (a) said: ‘Yes, Ali (a) Bin Al-Husayn (a) was the Chief of the worshippers, and an Imam (a), and a Proof over the creatures after his past forefathers (a), but he (a) did not meet Rasool-Allah (s), and did not hear from him (s), and his Knowledge and inheritance was from his father, from his grandfather, from the Prophet (s). And Amir Al-Momineen (a), and Fatima (a), and Al-Hassan (a), and Al-Husayn (a), the people had seen them (a) with Rasool-Allah (s) in various situations in a steady stream. So whenever they used to look at any one of them (a), they would remember his state with Rasool-Allah (s), and the words of Rasool-Allah (s) for him (a) and with regards to him (s). So when they passed, the people lost the witnessing the most prestigious ones to Allah Mighty and Majestic, and losing one of them (a) did not amount to losing all of them (a) except in the case of losing Al-Husayn (a) because he (a) passed away at the end of them. Thus, it is due to that, his day became the day of the greatest difficulties’. Abdullah Bin Al Fazal Al-Hashimy said, ‘So I said to him (a), ‘O son of Rasool-Allah (s)! So how come the general Muslims call the day of Ashura as a day of Blessing?’ So he (a) wept, then said: ‘When Al-Husayn (a) was killed, the people tried to get closer to Yazeed (la) and placed the news (whatever was pleasing to him (la)), and took parts of the wealth from him (la). So, from whatever they placed to him (la) was the matter of this day that is a day of Blessing so that the people, instead of being distress, and weeping, and difficulties, and the grief, would take to happiness, and the cheerfulness, and the exchanging of gifts, and celebrating it as a festival (Eid). Allah will Judge between us (a) and them (la)’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Then he (a) said: ‘O cousin! And that was the least harmful to Al-Islam and its people, but the people who assumed our cordiality, and assumed that they are actually making a Religion by our Wilayah and are speaking with our Imamate (began) claiming that Al-Husayn (a) was not killed and that it just appeared to be so to the people, and that his matter was like that of Isa (a) Bin Mayram (a). So now there is no authorisation for the Imams (a) against the Clan of Umayya, nor any blame upon them, upon what they were claiming. O cousin! The one who claims that Al-Husayn (a) was not killed, so he has belied Rasool-Allah (s), and Ali (a), and belied the ones after him (a) from the Imams (a). in their news of him (a) being killed. And the one who belies them (a), so he is a disbeliever in Allah the Magnificent, and his blood is Permissible (to be shed) for everyone who hears than from him’. Abdullah Bin Al-Fazal said, ‘So I said to him (a), ‘O son of Rasool-Allah (s)! So what are you saying regarding a people from your Shias who are speaking by it?’ So he (a) said: ‘They are not from my Shias, and I am away from them. Such, and such, and such, and such invalidates the Quran, and the Paradise, and the Fire’. He (the narrator) said, ‘So I said, ‘(What about) The words of Allah the High [2:65] And you have known those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so We Said to them: Become apes, despised?’ They were metamorphosed for three days, then died, and did not produce offspring, and that the monkeys today are similar to those ones, and such is the case of the pigs and the rest of the metamorphosed ones. Nothing can be found from these. Since they are similar to it, it is not Permissible to eat their flesh’. Then he (a) said: ‘May Allah Curse the exaggerators (Ghulaat) and the ‘Mufawwiza’ (Believers in delegation of Authority), for they have belittled the disobedience to Allah and have disbelieved in it, and they have associated, and strayed and have strayed others from establishing the Obligations and fulfilment of the rights’. [Al Illal Al Sharaie – V 1 Ch 162 H 1]
  6. There's an interesting debate of our Master Imam As Saadiq (a) with an atheist in which the Imam (a) destroyed and refuted atheism for eternity just in this single conversation. Checkout page no. 198 in the link below and what I'd recommend is, read it entirely in one sitting for some better insights. https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/BiharAlAnwaar/BiharAlAnwaar_V3.pdf I'll just post a very small extract from that lengthy conversation which shall suffice as a proof for my claim above, (The atheist was time and again emphasizing, since i can't realise God with my sensory perceptions, i won't acknowledge his existence) (Also, this is actually a letter which Imam (a) wrote to one of his loyal companion called Mufazzal bin Amr) Imam (a) said, From his (atheist's) claim is that the world did not cease to be nor would it cease, (like a) tree growing and another one falling, a soul is born and another one is destroyed, and he claimed that I (a) am claiming the recognition of Allah the Exalted, a claim having not proof for me upon it, nor is there any argument for me regarding it, and that, that is a matter I have taken it as a latter one from the first, and the young from the old, and that the things are different, combined, and esoteric, and exoteric. But rather, these are recognised by the five senses – looking of the eyes, hearing of the ears, and smelling of the nose, and taste of the mouth, and touch of the limbs. Then he guided his talk upon the origin which he placed, so he said, ‘Nothing has occurred from my senses upon a Creator leading to my heart’, denying Allah the Exalted. Then he (the atheist) said, ‘Inform me! By what do you (a) argue regarding the recognition of your Lord which you (a) describe as being His Power and His Lordship, and rather the heart recognises the things, all of them by the evidence of the five (senses) which I described to you?’ I (a) said: ‘With the intellect which is in my heart, and the evidence which I argue with in my understanding’. He (the atheist) said, ‘How can it happen, what you are saying, and you know that the heart does not recognise things without the five senses? Can you witness your Lord with sight, or hear His Voice with ears, or smell a gentle breeze, or taste Him with mouth, or touch by hand, so where it that recognition to your heart?’ I (a) said: ‘What is your view, when you denied Allah and rejected Him because you claim that you cannot feel him by your senses by which you recognise the things, and I (a) accept that I am with it, it is not inevitable that one of us would happen to be true and the other one a liar?’ He said, ‘No’. I (a) said, ‘What is your view if the (conclusive) word was your word, would there be any fear upon me from what I frighten you with from the Punishment of Allah?’ He said, ‘No’. I (a) said, ‘What is your view if it was just as I am saying, and the Truth is in my hands, wouldn’t you have taken regarding what I am warning of the Punishment of the Creator with firmness, and you have fallen, due to your rejection and your denial, into the destruction?’ He said, ‘Yes’. I said, ‘Which one of us is foremost with the firmness and closer to the salvation?’ He said, ‘You (a) are, except that you, from your matter, are upon a claim and doubt, while I am upon certainty and assurance because I cannot see my five senses realising Him, and whatever my senses do not realise, so as far as I am concerned, he isn’t with an existence’. I (a) said: ‘It is such that when your senses are frustrated from realising Allah, you deny Him, and I (a), when my senses are frustrated from realising Allah the Exalted, I (actually) ratify Him’. He said, ‘And how is that?’ I (a) said: ‘Because all things in which there is an effect, flows upon a synthesis of a body, or a sight falls upon the colour, so whatever the sights realise and the senses attain, then it is other than Allah, Glorious is He, because the creation does not resemble Him; and that this creation transforms with change and decline, and everything thing resembling it, changing and declining, so it is similar to it, and the creation is not like the Creator, nor is the caused like the Causer. He said, ‘This is to say, but I am a denier of whatever my senses do not realise and lead it to my heart. For what shall I adhere with these words and necessitate this argument?’ I (a) said: ‘But, when you are refusing only to adhere with the ignorance, and you are making the confusion to be an argument, so you have entered into the like of what you refuse, and compiled with what you disliked where you said, ‘I choose the medicines for myself because everything which my senses do not realise, with me it is nothing’’. He (the atheist) said, ‘And how is that?’ (Here comes the interesting part) I (a) said, ‘Because you committed upon the claim (that there is no Creator) and entered into it, and claimed a matter no news has come with it and no knowledge has transmitted it, so how can you make for yourself the claim in your denial of Allah, and your pushing away the signs of the Prophet-hood and the clear arguments, and refuse these upon me? I (a) asked, Tell me, have you encompassed with all the areas and reached their end points?’ He said, ‘No’. I (a) said: ‘Have you risen to the sky which you see? Or descended to the lower ground and been to its horizons? Or have you dived into the depths of the oceans and pierced the areas of the atmosphere in what is a void in the sky and below it to the earth, and what is lower than that, and found that to be empty from an Arranger, Wise, Knower, Seer?’ He said, ‘No’. I (a) said: ‘So what would make you know that perhaps that which your heart is denying, He is in a place which your senses have not realised, and your knowledge has not covered?’ He said, ‘I don’t know, maybe in some of what you (a) mentioned, there is an Arranger, and I don’t know maybe there isn’t anything in any of that!’ I (a) said: ‘But, since you came out from a limit of the denial to a status of doubt, then I hope that you will come out to the recognition’. He said, ‘But rather, the doubt entered upon me due to your (a) questioning me of what my knowledge has not covered, but from where will the certainty enter upon me with what my senses do not realise?’ I (a) said: ‘From the direction of this herb of yours’.

  7. 5-45 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah al-Barqy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Ubaydullah al-Dihqan, on the authority of Durost, on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Abdul-Hamid, On the authority of Imam Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kazim (a), “A man went to see RasoolAllah (s) and said, ‘O Prophet of Allah! I have taught my son how to write. What should he engage in now?’ RasoolAllah (a) replied, ‘Have him do any job but the following five: Selling shrouds for the dead; Working as a goldsmith ; Slaughtering quadrupeds (butcher); Selling wheat; And selling slaves. The reason behind this is as follows, One who sells shrouds for the dead would wish the death of his people, while even a baby from my followers is superior to all the people on the Earth in my sight. A goldsmith would plan to have the people lose their money. When a slaughterer of quadrupeds (butcher) kills the quadrupeds, he will not forgive others wholeheartedly. A wheat-seller would hoard up the wheat and withhold it from my followers. It would be better if one has stolen something when he meets God, than having hoarded up food for forty days (in order to sell it at a higher price). Selling slaves is a bad job since once Jibrael descended to me and said, ‘Those who sell slaves are the worst people amongst your followers.’’ [Ref:- https://thaqalayn.net/hadith/10/6/38/1] Additional hadith regarding business etiquettes, https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://hubeali.com/articles/Professions-and-Business-Etiquettes.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjrnMKFu670AhXXUGwGHb3HBDAQFnoECAcQAQ&usg=AOvVaw37GikJGMfdbd-LYGB-5R6B
  8. RasoolAllah (s) said, (Extract) "When Allah the Blessed the Elevated created the lower world, it took pride, cheered, and said, “Nothing will overcome me.” Thus, Allah created the earth to be on its back. Therefore, the lower world submitted. The earth, then, felt proud, and said, “Nothing will overcome me.” Hence, Allah created the mountains and fixed them on the back of the earth so that it would not swing. Thus, the earth submitted and settled. The mountains, then, were proud. They towered and said, “Nothing will overcome us.” Hence, Allah created the iron to cut the mountains. Thus, they submitted. Then the iron said proudly, “Nothing will overcome me.” Hence, Allah created fire to dissolve the iron. The fire gasped and said proudly, “Nothing will overcome me.” Therefore, Allah created water to extinguish the fire. The water, then, said proudly, “Nothing will overcome me.” Hence, Allah created the wind that moved the waves of water and aroused what is lying in its depths and stopped it from flowing. The water submitted, and the wind blew and said proudly, “Nothing will overcome me.” Hence, Allah created man to build what prevents and stops the wind. Thus, the wind submitted. Man then exceeded the bounds and said tyrannically, “Nothing is more powerful than I am.” Hence, Allah created death, and man submitted. Then death took pride, but Almighty Allah said, “Never take pride at yourself. I will slaughter you between the two parties; people of Paradise and people of Hell. I will not revive you forever.” Hence, death feared." [Tuhaf Al Uqool p. 22 (english)] http://islamicblessings.com/upload/Tuhaf Al Uqul The Masterpieces_of The Mind.pdf
  9. My father narrated to us, from Ali Bin Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from his father, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Hisham Bin Al Hakam,

     

    Aba Abdillah Imam Al Saadiq (a) has said: ‘The Angel of death came to Musa (a) Bin Imran (a). So he (a) greeted him and said: ‘Who are you?’ 

    He said: ‘I am the Angel of Death’. 

    So he (a) said: ‘What is your need?’ 

    So he said to him (a): ‘I have come to capture your soul’.

    So Musa (a) said to him: ‘From where will you be capturing my soul?’ 

    He said: ‘From your mouth’. 

    So Musa (a) said to him: ‘How can you, and I have spoken by it to my Lord Mighty and Majestic’. 

    So he said: ‘From your hands’. 

    So Musa (a) said to him: ‘How can you, and I have carried the Torah by these two’. 

    So he said: ‘From your feet’. 

    So he (a) said: ‘And how can you, and Ias have stepped by these upon the (Mount) Toor of Sinai’. 

    The Imam (a) said: ‘And he repeated (for) the things other than these’.

    The Imam (a) said: ‘So the Angel of Death said to him (a): ‘I have thus been Commanded that I should leave you until (such time as) you yourself become the one who wants that (death)’. So Musa (a) remained for as long as Allah so Desired. Then (one day) he (a) passed by a man and he was digging a grave. So Musa (a) said to him: ‘Shall I assist you on (digging) the put of this grave?’ 

    So the man said to him (a), ‘Yes’.

    The Imam (a) said: ‘So he (a) assisted until the pit of the grave, and the grave was dug out. So the man intended that he should lied down in the grave to see how it is?’ 

    So Musa (a) said to him: ‘I shall lie down in it’. So Musa (a) lied down, and he saw his place in the Paradise’ – or he (Imam) said: ‘his house in the Paradise’. 

    So Musa (a) said: ‘O Lord! Capture me to You!’ So the Angel of Death captured his soul, and he (a) was buried in that very grave, and the dust was levelled upon him. 

    Imam (a) said: ‘And the one who dug out the grave was the Angel of Death in the image of a human, therefore it is due to that, no one recognises (knows of the whereabouts) of the grave of Musa (a)’

     

    [Al Illal Al Sharaie – V 1 Ch 61 H 1]

  10. From him, from Ali Bin Hadeed, from Sama’at Bin Mahran who said,

    ‘I was in the presence of Abu Abdillah Al Saadiq (a) and in his presence were a number of his loyalists. So there flowed a mention of the intellect and the ignorance.

    So he (a) said: ‘Get to know, the intellect and its army, and the ignorance and its army, and you would be Guided’.

    Sama’at said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you! We do not understand except what you make us to understand’.

    So Abu Abdillah Al-Saadiq (a) said: ‘Allah Created the intellect, and it is the first of the creatures to be Created from the spiritual realm from the right of the Throne, from His Light. So He Said to it: “Turn back!” so it turned back. Then Said to it: “Come forward!” So it came. So Allah Mighty and Majestic Said to it: ‘I have Created you as a magnificent creature, and Honoured you over all of My creatures”.

    He (a) said: ‘Then He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Created the ignorance from the salty dark ocean. So He Said to it: “Turn back” So it turned back. Then Said to it: “Come forward!” But it did not come forward. So Allah Said to it: “Are you being arrogant?” So He Cursed it. Then He Made seventy-five armies for the intellect. So when the ignorance saw what Prestige Allah has Honoured the intellect with, and what He had Given it, harboured enmity towards it. So the ignorance said: ‘O Lord! This is a creature similar to me. You Created it, and Honoured it, and Strengthened it. And I am opposite to it, and there is no strength for me by it. Therefore Given me the army similar to what You have Given it’. So He Said: “Yes. But, if you were to disobey Me after that, I will Throw you and your army out from My Mercy”. It said, ‘I have agreed’. Thus, He Gave it seventy-five armies.

    So from what Allah Gave the intellect from the seventy five armies, the army of goodness is its Vizier, and Made its opposite to be (the army of) evil, and it is the Vizier of the (armies of) the ignorance. And the ‘Imaan’ (belief), its opposite is the disbelief; and the ratification, and its opposite is ingratitude; and the hope, and its opposite is the despair; and the justice, and its opposite is injustice; and the satisfaction, and its opposite is the resentment; and the thankfulness, and its opposite is ungratefulness; And the expectation, and its opposite is helplessness; and the reliance, and its opposite is the greed; and the compassion, and its opposite is the harshness; and the mercy, and its opposite is the anger; and the knowledge, and its opposite is the ignorance; and the understanding, and its opposite is the stupidity; and the chastity, and its opposite is immorality; and the asceticism, and its opposite is the yearning; And the gentleness, and its opposite is the relentlessness; and the awe, and its opposite is audacity; and the humbleness, and its opposite is pride; and the relaxedness, and its opposite is haste; and the forbearance, and its opposite is foolishness; and the contentment, and its opposite is the bluffing; and the peacefulness, and its opposite is the arrogance; and the acceptance, and its opposite is the compulsion; And the pardoning, and its opposite is the rancour; and the tenderness, and its opposite is the callousness; and the conviction, and its opposite is the doubt; and the patience, and its opposite is the anxiety; and the forgiveness, and its opposite is the revenge; and the richness, and its opposite is the poverty; and the pondering, and its opposite is the ommission; and the memorising, and its opposite is the forgetfulness; and the sympathy, and its opposite is the detachment; And the contentment, and its opposite is the greed; and the equality, and its opposite is the prevention; and the cordiality, and its opposite is the enmity; and the loyalty, and its opposite is the betrayal, and the obedience, and its opposite is the disobedience, and the subservience, and its opposite is the supremacy; and the security, and its opposite is the affliction; and the love, and its opposite is the hatred, and the truthfulness, and its opposite is the lying; and the truth, and its opposite is the falsehood; And the trustworthiness, and its opposite is the treachery; and the sincerity, and its opposite is the dishonesty; and magnanimity, and its opposite is the apathy; and the understanding, and its opposite is the stupidity; and the recognition, and its opposite is the denial; and the politeness, and its opposite is the frankness; and the safety of the unseen, and its opposite is the intemperance; and the concealment, and its opposite is the publicising;

    And the Salaat (Prayer), and its opposite is the wasting of it; and the Fasting, and its opposite is the breaking of it; and the Jihad, and its opposite is the withdrawal from (running away); and the Hajj, and its opposite is the renouncement of the Covenant; and the conservation of the Hadeeth, and its opposite is the scandal; and the goodness to the parents, and its opposite is the disowning; and the reality, and its opposite is the showing off; and the goodness, and its opposite is the evil; And the veil, and its opposite is the shamelessness; and the dissimulation, and its opposite is the broadcasting; and the fairness, and its opposite partiality; and the peacefulness, and its opposite is the rebellion; and the cleanliness, and its opposite is the filth; and the modesty, and its opposite is the impropriety; and the intent, and its opposite is the aggression; and the rest, and its opposite is the exhaustion; and the ease, and is opposite is the difficulty; And the Blessings, and its opposite is the annihilation; and the good health, and its opposite is the suffering; and the stability, and its opposite is the wavering; and the wisdom, and its opposite is the desire; and the dignity, and its opposite is the meanness; and the happiness, and its opposite is the misery; and the repentance, and its opposite is the persistence; and the seeking Forgiveness, and its opposite is the keeping pride; and conservativeness, and its opposite is the recklessness; And the supplication, and its opposite is the withholding it; and the vitality, and its opposite is the lethargy (dullness); and the happiness, and its opposite is the grief; and the intimacy, and its opposite is the prejudice; and the generosity, and its opposite is the stinginess.

    And these armies of the intellect are not complete in anyone except in a Prophet (a) or a successor (a) of a Prophet (a), or a Believer whose heart Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has Tested for the faith. As for the rest of those who are in our (a) Wilayah (Guardianship), so if one of the them is not free from some of these armies becoming in him until they are competed in him, he should be fearing from the ignorance.

    Thus, during that, they would come to be in the high Levels along with the Prophets (a) and the successors (a). But rather, the success can be realised with the understanding of the intellect and is armies, and keeping away from the ignorance and its armies.

    May Allah Cause us (a) and you all to achieve His obedience and His Pleasure’.

     

    [Al Mahaasin – V 1 Bk 5 H 22]

  11. "Mysterious About Angels And (Heavenly) Veils."

    “They asked the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (a) about the power of the Honorable the Exalted God - may His Majesty be Exalted. Then he stood up and delivered a sermon. He praised God, expressed God’s glorifications and said,

    ‘The Blessed the Sublime God has many angles. Some of them are so big that if any of them comes down to Earth, the Earth cannot house them in it due to their extensive size and great amount of feathers and large wings. Some of the angels are so stout and handsome that if all the genies and men cooperate with each other, they cannot describe them. Some of the angles are so big that it would take seven-hundred years to travel the distance between their two shoulders or the distance between their two earlobes. Some of the angels are so large that they can block off the whole horizon with just one of their wings, and their body is very large in size. Some of the angels are so tall that when they stand up the heavens are below their belly buttons. Some of them are such that they can step on no support on the inner layers of the Earth and all of the Earth is only as high as their knee. Some of them are so large that just the back of their large nail can house all the waters in the oceans of the Earth. Some of the angels are so large that they can house as many ships as there ever will be in their eyes and they can sail there forever. Blessed be the Best of the Creators.” Then he (MGB) was asked about the veils. He (MGB) said, “There are seven types of veils. The thickness of each veil is the distance of a five-hundred year journey, and the distance from one veil to the next is five-hundred years. The second veil includes seventy-thousand veils with the distance from one veil to the next is five-hundred years, and the thickness of each veil is the distance of a five-hundred year journey. There are seventy-thousand angels as the gate-keepers for each veil each as powerful as all the genies and the men. Some of the veils are darkness, some are light. Some of the veils are fire, some are smoke. Some of the veils are clouds, some are lightening. Some of the veils are thunder, some are illumination. Some of the veils are pebbles, some are hills. Some of the veils are dust. Some of the veils are water and some are creeks. They are a variety of veils the thickness of each is the distance of a seventy-thousand year journey.Then there are the pavilions of majesty which are sixty in number. There are seventy-thousand angels in each pavilion. The distance between each pavilion is the distance of a five-hundred year journey. Then there is the pavilion of glory. Then there is the pavilion of grandeur. Then there is the pavilion of magnificence. Then there is the pavilion of holiness. Then there is the pavilion of almightiness. Then there is the pavilion of pride. Then there is the pavilion of white light. Then there is the pavilion of Unity which is as large as a square each side of which measures the distance of a seventy-thousand journey. Then there is the Imperial Veil.”Then, Ali (MGB) ended his speech and stopped talking. Umar said, “O Abal-Hassan! I could not survive even for one day without you.”The compiler of the book - may God be pleased with him - said, “These veils are not covering up the Honorable the Exalted God since the Sublime God cannot be said to be confined in a place. However, they are placed upon the great world which He has created and no one but the Blessed the Sublime God knows its size.”
