  4. Salaams... Well there is no distinction in the ranks of Aimmah (as). All Imam's (as) have the same position and rank and status except Hazrat Ameerul Momineen Ali (as). Imam Ali (as) enjoys a higher position than all other Imam's. With exception of Imam Ali (as), all Imam's (as) have the same status, position, rank. All Imams possessed the same kind and degree of generosity, bravery, servitude, nobility, knowledge, etc. But Imam's (as) used them according to the era they were in. It is obvious that it is due to this Imam Hasan (as) choose to sign a treaty (as it was the most desired in that era) and Imam Husain (as) choose the battlefield. All Imams were equal in knowledge, but Imam Baqir (as) and Imam Sadiq (as) got more opportunity to share it with the people. That is why we find more traditions from these two Imam's (as). So, Imam Ali (as) enjoys a higher position than other Imam's, otherwise all the other Imam's have the same position and status.

  9. Being Grateful for the Blessings Some people think that being grateful for blessings is achieved by saying, after making use of these divine blessings, “Thanks be to Allah”, or “Praise be to Allah”, or “Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds”. It is not reasonable that a word or two we utter with our tongues can achieve real gratefulness for all these material and moral blessings. Gratefulness should be suitable to the Giver and harmonious with the blessing. This cannot be achieved except by a series of sayings, doings and feelings. Can gratefulness be realized just by saying, “praise be to Allah” before all these material blessings? Think of our organs: the eyes, the ears, the tongue, the hands, the legs, the heart, veins, nerves and bones. Consider other material blessings life food, drink, fragrances; beautiful scenes of nature, like mountains, plains, woods, rivers, springs, seas; the different fruits, grains, vegetables and millions of other blessings that are considered as tools and means that keep the life and the survival of man. Can man offer the real gratefulness to Allah just by saying “thanks be to Allah” in return for the blessings of Islam, faith, guidance, guardianship, knowledge, wisdom, health, safety, purification, satisfaction, obedience, love, worship and the likes? Ar – Raghib al – Isfahani says in his book al-Mufradat, p 265, “The origin of thanking is from ein shukra. (Ein in Arabic means “eye” or “spring”. Shukr means “thanking”.) It means from an eye full of tears or a spring full of pure water, the meaning of gratefulness is that the inners of man become full of the mention of Allah and that he pays full attention to the blessings of Allah: how he gets them and how he uses them. We should know that gratefulness is meeting blessings with saying, doing and intention. Gratefulness depends on three bases. The first: knowing the Benefactor and His suitable aspects, and appreciating blessings and acknowledging that all the blessings whether apparent or hidden are from Allah the Almighty. The real benefactor is no one save Allah the Exalted and all the means between man and these blessings and talents are determined by the will of Allah. The second base is the coming true of “The State”. The State here means being submissive and humble before the Benefactor and being happy and delighted with blessings. We should know that al the blessings are Divine gifts from Allah the Almighty to His slaves and as evidence of the care of Allah towards His slaves. The sign of the coming true of State is that we should not be delighted with material blessings except in a way that brings us nearer to Allah. The third base of gratefulness is doing. Doing should appear in three stages: the heart, the tongue and the organs. The Doing of the Heart is glorifying Allah, praising him, pondering on His creatures, doings, and mercy and having determination to give goodness to all the creatures. As for the Doing of the Tongue, it is accomplished by showing words of thankfulness, praise, glorifying Allah, enjoining people to do good and forbidding them from doing bad. The Doing of the Organs is using them to worship Allah and obey Him and keeping them away from disobeying Him. Hence, the real meaning of gratefulness shows that gratefulness is one of the aspects of perfection. It is so little that gratefulness appears in a full way by the people who have enjoined the blessings as the Holy Quran says: “…and very few of My servants are grateful. 34:13” Being grateful for blessings is achieved by refraining from sins. Full gratefulness is to say, “Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.” Being grateful for blessings is by using them in worshipping, being obedient, helping people, doing god to them and by refraining from all sins and bad doings.

  10. Creation of the Bird Allah, the Almighty says in the Holy Quran “In the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth… there are for the wise clear proofs of the knowledge and power of the Creator”. (12:164) Imam Jafer e Sadiq (as) said to Mufaddal: “Look carefully at the structure of bird’s creation; see how it has been created light and small in volume to enable it to fly. It was given only two legs instead of the four given to other animals and only four toes of the five toes they have on each foot. Birds have slim, pointed breastes to enable them to fend the air easily and fly in every direction. The long legs of the bird fit easily beneath its tail and its wings, and its whole body is covered with feathers so that air might penetrate them and aid it to fly. Since the food of birds consists of seeds and the flesh of animals that they consume without chewing, they have no need of teeth. Instead, Allah created for birds a hard and sharp beak that cannot break when tearing off meat or suffer injury when gathering seeds. To enable this creature to digest the food it has not chewed, it has been given a powerful digestive system and a warm body. Furthermore, birds reproduce by laying eggs so they can remain light enough to fly; if their offspring were to grow in their stomachs, they would become too heavy to fly.” Then the Imam (as) referred to a general law, saying: “Thus all the peculiarities of a bird’s creation conform to its environment and its manner of life.”
  11. are u saying contastine was ruling rome during the period of 11th imam??? ..... i am a slow learner!!!!!
  12. Allama Majlisi has described the birth of imam mahdi (atfs) in 11th vol. of behaarul anwaar (urdu) 51st vol (english - the book of occultation). Also i think my question was quite relevant .... as i asked u the books which u used for yr research..... We would all love to know where... did u get this inofrmation from..... it will increase our knowledge every discussion on knowledge is always backed by historical refrences, verses of quran or traditions of aimmah's (as) ..... infact such refrences form the base of ilmi discussions..... if u fail to provide the refrence for yr above quote.... then this discussion is absolutley baseless.... and futile.... and there is absolutely no point in continuing this discussion ...if u donot co-operate...
