  1. Salaam, Throughout history the Kaaba has been destroyed and rebuilt numerous times, but how come the mark left from the birth of Imam Ali (as) is still there? Could it just be a mark from damage that's occurred? I've heard that every year, around Imam Ali's birth date the Saudi government tries covering the mark up since the mark becomes too evident, but I'm not 100% sure about this. ^ this is what I mean btw
  2. خلاصة الاقوال في معرفة الرجال - Page 276-277, Author: Allamah al-Hilli. http://www.uofislam.net/uofislam/view.php?type=c_book&id=1360 مالك الاشتر قدس الله روحه ورضي الله عنه، جليل القدر، عظيم المنزلة، كان اختصاصه بعلي (عليه السلام) اظهر من ان يخفى، وتأسف (أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) بموته، وقال: لقد كان لي كما كنت لرسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله. Ali a.s said, when Maalik al-Ashtar died: "He was to me as I was to Rasul Allah s.a.w.w" And Ali a.s was to Rasul Allah s.a.w.w as Harun a.s was to Musa a.s. Therefore the relation of Malik Ashtar r.a with Imam Ali a.s was of the same nature as Ali a.s had with Rasul Allah s.a.w.w.
  3. Salaam, I have seen many supposed Imam Ali a.s quotes but two that I particularly like are "Life consists of two days, one for you and one against you. So when it's for you don't be proud or reckless, and when it's against you be patient, for both days are a test for you" and "It is in the changing of circumstances in life that the essence of man is revealed." However, I cannot find any references or sources to attribute these sayings to Imam Ali a.s. which leads me to believe that they were not actually said by him. If anyone could provide references/source for either of these quotes, I would be very very grateful. Ya Ali Madad

  5. Assalam O Alaikum, Wa Rehmatullah, Wa Barakatuhu [Isra:36] And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart - about all those [one] will be questioned. [Hujraat:6] O ye who believe! if a wicked person comes to you with any news ascertain the truth lest ye harm people unwittingly and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done. This is a reminder for those who dont consider Ummul Momineen Bibi Ayesha Salamun Alaiha their mother or wife of Our Beloved Prophet S.A.W.W in the life hereafter. I did want to reply on this thread, but sadly it has been locked. When I analyzed this thread I made following conclusions, which are very obvious. Anybody can observe. 1. There is no unity among asna ashri shias themselves, even on some basic principles. 2. Beliefs & understanding of most trusted asna ashri shia scholars like Sadooq, Toosi & others are different from today's many shia scholars and their followers. 3. Most of the shias dont care about whether the narrations are authentic or not. They simply judge based on emotions. They can even use any weak narration if its against those whom they dislike/hate. 4. They can also reject authentic narrations of Imams if they go against their emotions. 5. Everyone is accusing/blaming brother @Tawheed313. But truth is that he is only quoting authentic narrations of Imams with testimonies of prominent shia scholars. If anyone really want to criticise then first start with them. Dont be biased, do justice. 6. Many advanced members are openly violating SC rules, yet no one has been banned. I am sorry but Admins and moderators here are biased. Review SC rules once again, It hurts, really hurts when some people make everything a shia sunni issue. While same is also mentioned in most authenitc books that they follow. As it is evident from posts of brother @Tawheed313 on recently locked thread. Also from following threads + one more that was recently being deleted (You know you are sunni when...). ATTITUDE AND BELIEF OF MAULA ALI A.S, IMAM HASSAN A.S AND THIER TRUE AND IDEAL SHIAS AMMAR BIN YASIR R.A AND IBN ABBAS R.A CONCERNING UMMUL MOMINEEN AISHA SALAMUN ALAIHA. Narrated Abu Maryam `Abdullah bin Ziyad Al-Aasadi: When Talha, AzZubair and `Aisha moved to Basra, `Ali sent `Ammar bin Yasir and Hasan bin `Ali who came to us at Kufa and ascended the pulpit. Al-Hasan bin `Ali was at the top of the pulpit and `Ammar was below Al-Hasan. We all gathered before him. I heard `Ammar saying, "`Aisha has moved to Al-Busra. By Allah! She is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter. But Allah has put you to test whether you obey Him (Allah) or her (`Aisha). Sahih al-Bukhari 7100 http://www.sunnah.com/bukhari/92/51 Narrated Abu Wail: When `Ali sent `Ammar and Al-Hasan to (the people of) Kufa to urge them to fight, `Ammar addressed them saying, "I know that she (i.e. `Aisha) is the wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) in this world and in the Hereafter (world to come), but Allah has put you to test, whether you will follow Him (i.e. Allah) or her." Sahih al-Bukhari 3772 http://www.sunnah.com/bukhari/62/119 Great Debate of Ibn Abbas with Khawarij Source: Silsilah al-Sahihah by Albani (5/12-13) https://abdurrahmanorg.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/the-great-debate-of-ibn-abbas-with-the-khawarij-shaykh-al-albanee-authentic-translations-com.pdf I (Ibn Abbas) said: As for your statement, He fought but did not take captives and did not take war booty, then would you take your mother (in Islam) Aishah, as a captive, making her permissible for yourselves for that which you make permissible from other than her while she is your mother? If you say We make permissible from her that which we make Permissible from other than her, then you have committed disbelief. And if you say, “She is not our mother,” then you have also committed disbelief. The prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers [Ahzab:6] And so you are between the two ill judgments. So, which of them do you want to take? Have we finished with this point? They (Khawarij) replied, “YES” Alhamdulillah, I am proud to call myself SHIA like Ammar Bin Yasir and Ibn Abbas (two ideal & true shias of Imam Ali) and I am on their path concerning Ummul Momineen Aisha Salamun Alaiha, as prescribed/ordered by Maula Ali a.s. SURAH AHZAB - 6 النَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ ۖ وَأَزْوَاجُهُ أُمَّهَاتُهُمْ ۗ وَأُولُو الْأَرْحَامِ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلَىٰ بِبَعْضٍ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُهَاجِرِينَ إِلَّا أَنْ تَفْعَلُوا إِلَىٰ أَوْلِيَائِكُمْ مَعْرُوفًا ۚ كَانَ ذَٰلِكَ فِي الْكِتَابِ مَسْطُورًا The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, and his wives are their (believers) mothers. Blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of Allah. Than (the Brotherhood of) Believers and Muhajirs: nevertheless do ye what is just to your closest friends: such is the writing in the Decree (of Allah). In this connection, the wives of the Holy Prophet are mothers of the believers only in the sense that the Muslims are under obligation to have reverence and respect for them, and no Muslim could marry them. This status accrues to all the wives of the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w including Bibi Aisha Salamun Alaiha. Every person who claims to be a believer has to acknowledge her as his mother. Jazak Allah Khairan NOTE: If anyone has objections please post/reply with authentic evidences in order to negate the beliefs/verdicts of AMMAR BIN YASIR AND IBN ABBAS. Otherwise keep quite. I am not interested in your emotions, personal views, excuses or assumptions with regard to this particular matter. And also I dont want that this thread becomes closed/locked/derailed. As some people are hijacking and derailing many threads of brother @Tawheed313 for no valid reason.
  6. Imam Ali (AS): ‘whoever makes a good assumption about you, then prove him right.’ Tuḥaf al-‘Uqūl, p. 82 When you hear that you could improve more than your classmates in a certain subject, when you hear that you could precede others in doing a good deed and when you hear that your country could be proud of you in future, then do something that such suggestions and assumptions would come true. Prove them right.
  7. Salamun alaykum. I came across this part of sermon 183 of Imam Ali (as) in Nahj al-Balagha about the punishment of the Day of Judgment. It is really touching: وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ لِهذَا الْجِلْدِ الرَّقِيقِ صَبْرٌ عَلَى النَّارِ، فَارْحَمُوا نُفُوسَكُمْ، فَإِنّكُمْ قَدْ جَرَّبْتُمُوهَا فِي مَصَائِبِ الدُّنْيَا. أَفَرَأَيْتُمْ جَزَعَ أَحَدِكُمْ مِنَ الشَّوْكَةِ تُصِيبُهُ، وَالْعَثْرَةِ تُدْمِيهِ، وَالرَّمْضَاءِ تُحْرِقُهُ؟ فَكَيْفَ إِذَا كَانَ بَيْنَ طَابَقَيْنِ مِنْ نَار، ضَجِيعَ حَجَر، وَقَرِينَ شَيْطَان؟! أَعَلِمْتُمْ أَنَّ مَالِكاً إِذَا غَضِبَ عَلَى النَّارِ حَطَمَ بَعْضُهَا بَعْضَاً لِغَضَبِهِ، وَإِذَا زَجَرَهَا تَوَثَّبَتْ بَيْنَ أَبوَابِهَا جَزَعاً مِنْ زَجْرَتِهِ؟! You should know that this thin skin cannot tolerate the Fire (of Hell). So, have pity on yourselves because you have already tried it in the tribulations of the world. Have you ever seen the crying of a person who has been [Edited Out]ed with a thorn or who bleeds due to stumbling or whom hot sand has burnt? How would he feel when he is between two frying pans of Hell with stones all round with Satan as his companion? Do you know that when Malik (the guard-in-charge of Hell) is angry with the fire, its parts begin to clash with each other (in rage), and, when he scolds it, it leaps between the doors of Hell crying on account of his scolding. أَيُّهَا الْيَفَنُ الْكَبِيرُ، الَّذِي قَدْ لَهَزَهُ الْقَتَيرُ، كَيْفَ أَنْتَ إِذَا الْتَحَمَتْ أَطْوَاقُ النَّارِ بِعِظَامِ الاْعْنَاقِ، وَنَشِبَتِ الجَوَامِعُ حَتَّى أَكَلَتْ لُحُومَ السَّوَاعِدِ؟ فَاللهَ اللهَ مَعْشَرَ الْعِبَادِ! وَأَنْتُمْ سَالِمُونَ فِي الصِّحَّةِ قَبْلَ السُّقْمِ، وَفِي الْفُسْحَةِ قَبْلَ الضِّيقِ، فَاسْعَوْا فِي فَكَاكِ رِقَابِكُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ تُغْلَقَ رَهَائِنُهَا، أَسْهِرُوا عُيُونَكُمْ، وَأَضْمِرُوا بُطُونَكُمْ، وَاسْتَعْمِلُوا أَقْدَامَكُمْ، وَأَنْفِقُوا أَمْوَالَكُمْ، وَخُذُوا مِنْ أَجْسَادِكُمْ تَجُودُوا بِهَا عَلَى أَنْفُسَكُمْ، وَلاَ تَبْخَلُوا بِهَا عَنْهَا، فَقَدْ قَالَ اللهُ سُبْحَانَهُ: (إِنْ تَنْصُرُوا اللهَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ)، وَقَالَ تَعَالَى: (مَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللهَ قَرْضاً حَسَناً فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ وَلَهُ أَجْرٌ كَرِيمٌ)، O you who are advanced in years, whom old age has made hoary, how will you feel when rings of fire will touch the bones of your neck, and handcuffs hold so hard that they eat away the flesh of the forearms? (Fear) Allah! Allah! O crowd of men, while you are in good health before sickness (grips you) and you are in ease before straitness (overtakes you). You should try for the release of your necks before their mortgage is foreclosed, keep your eyes awake at night, make your bellies lean, use your feet, spend your money, take your bodies and spend them over yourselves, and do not be niggardly about them, because Allah the Glorified, has said: ... if you help (in the way) of Allah, He will (also) help you, and will set firm your feet. (Qur'an, 47:7) and He, the Sublime. has said: Who is he who would loan unto Allah a goodly loan so that He may double it for him, and for him shall be a noble recompense. (Qur'an, 57:11) A serious question: are we ready for that Day?
  8. For anyone who is in denial that it is not in their books and needs to see it for themselves: Mu’awiya asks Sa’d to curse Ali (as) We read in Sahih Muslim: عن عامر بن سعد بن أبي وقاص، عن أبيه، قال أمر معاوية بن أبي سفيان سعدا فقال ما منعك أن تسب أبا التراب فقال أما ما ذكرت ثلاثا قالهن له رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فلن أسبه لأن تكون لي واحدة منهن ۔۔۔ This hadith has been narrated on the authority of Shu’ba with the same chain of transmitters. Amir b. Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas reported on the authority of his father that Muawiya b. Abi Sufyin appointed Sa’d as the Governor and said: What prevents you from abusing Abu Turab (Hadrat ‘Ali), whereupon be said : It is because of three things which I remember Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) having said about him that I would not abuse him and even if I find one of those three things for me, it would be more dear to me than the red camelg. I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) say about ‘Ali as he left behind hrin in one of his campaigns (that was Tabuk). ‘All said to him: Allah’s Messenger, you leave me behind along with women and children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to him: Aren’t you satisfied with being unto me what Aaron was unto Moses but with this exception that there is no prophethood after me. And I (also) heard him say on the Day of Khaibar: I would certainly give this standard to a person who loves Allah and his Messenger and Allah and his Messenger love him too. He (the narrator) said: We have been anxiously waiting for it, when he (the Holy Prophet) said: Call ‘Ali. He was called and his eyes were inflamed. He applied saliva to his eyes and handed over the standard to him, and Allah gave him victory. (The third occasion is this) when the (following) verse was revealed: “Let us summon our children and your children.” Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) called ‘Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain and said: O Allah, they are my family." - Sahih Muslim, Chapter of Virtues of Companions, Section of Virtues of Ali, Book 31, Number 5915 Ibn Kathir, a high ranking scholar from Ahlus Sunnah records: وقال أبو زرعة الدمشقي : ثنا أحمد بن خالد الذهبي أبو سعيد ، ثنا محمد بن إسحاق ، عن عبد الله بن أبي نجيح ، عن أبيه قال : لما حج معاوية أخذ بيد سعد بن أبي وقاص فقال : يا أبا إسحاق ، إنا قوم قد أجفانا هذا الغزو عن الحج حتى كدنا أن ننسى بعض سننه ، فطف نطف بطوافك . قال : فلما فرغ أدخله دار الندوة ، فأجلسه معه على سريره ، ثم ذكر علي بن أبي طالب فوقع فيه ، فقال : أدخلتني دارك ، وأجلستني على سريرك ، ثم وقعت في علي تشتمه ؟ When Mu’awiya went for Hajj, he held the hand of Sa’d bin Abi Waqas and said to him: ‘Oh Abi Ishaq! We are the people who abandoned Hajj because of wars until we almost forgot some of its laws, so we performed Tawaf (circumambulation) to imitate your Tawaf’. When they completed (the hajj), he (Muawiya) entered upon him (Sa’d) in a conference room and sat with him on his sofa, then he (Muawiya) mentioned Ali bin Abi Talib and cursed him. He (Sa’d) said: ‘You brought me to your house and made me sit on your sofa and then you have begun to curse Ali?’ - Al Bidayah wa al Nahayah, Volume 7 page 341, Chapter: The virtues of Ali عن سعد بن أبي وقاص قال قدم معاوية في بعض حجاته فدخل عليه سعد فذكروا عليا فنال منه فغضب سعد وقال تقول هذا “On his way to Hajj, Sa’d met Mu’awiya and his companions mentioned Ali upon which Mu’awiya cursed him, Sa’d got angry and asked ‘why do you say such things?’” Esteemed scholar of Salafi Sect Shaykh Al-albaani graded the Hadith as ‘Sahih’ [Reference in Sahih Sunan Ibn Majah by Albani, Volume 1 page 26] al-Tabari reported: "When Muawiya Ibn Abi Sufyan put al-Mughairah Ibn Shu’ba in charge of Kufah in Jumada 41 (September 2- October 30, 661), he summoned him. After praising and glorifying God, he said: “Now then, indeed a forbearing person has been admonished in the past… The wise might do what you want without instruction. Although I have wanted to advise you about many things, I left them alone, trusting in your discernment of what pleases me, what helps my regime and what sets my subjects [raiyyah] on the right path. I would continue to advise you about a quality of yours- do not refrain from abusing Ali and criticizing him, not from asking God’s mercy upon Uthman and His forgiveness for him. Continue to shame the companions of Ali, keep at a distance, and don’t listen to them. Praise the faction of Uthman, bring them near, and listen to them." - History of Tabari, English version, events of year 51 AH, Execution of Hujr Ibn Adi, v18, pp 122-123 Sunni Imam Ibn Jareer Tabari records: "The Messenger of Muawiya then came to them with orders to release six and to kill eight, telling them: We have been ordered to let you disavow Ali and curse him. If you do so, we shall release you, and if you refuse, we shall kill you." - History of Tabari, English version, events of year 51 AH, v18, p149 “Al-Hasan asked Mu’awiya to give him what is in Kufa’s treasury worth five million, Ebjird city tax, and not to curse Ali, Mu’awiya refused to desist from cursing Ali, so (al-Hasan) asked him not to curse Ali when he could hear it, (Mu’awiya) accepted this but failed to fulfil it, and about Darabjird city tax, the people of Basrah refused to deliver it to him and said that the income belonged to them and they would not give it to any one, their rejection was upon the orders of Mu’awiya” - Tarikh Kamil (Urdu), Volume 3 pages 2-3 (Usmania Academy, Hyderabad, India) - Tarikh Kamil (Arabic), Volume 3 page 272 (Beruit) - Tarikh Kamil, Volume 2 page 108 (from www.islamport.com) ---- قال دخلت على أم سلمة فقالت لي : أيسب رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم فيكم قلت معاذ الله أو سبحان الله أو كلمة نحوها قالت سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يقول من سب عليا فقد سبني Abdullah al-Jadali said: ‘I came to Um Salama and she said to me: ‘How come Allah’s Messenger is being cursed among you?’. I replied: ‘We seek refuge from Allah or praise Allah or some similar words’. She said: ‘I heard Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) saying ‘whoever curses Ali has cursed me’ - Musnad Ahmed, Volume 6 page 323 Hadith 26791 من سب عليا فقد سبني، ومن سبني فقد سب الله The Prophet Sawa said: ‘Whoever curses Ali has cursed me and whoever has cursed me, he has cursed Allah.' - Al-Jam’e al-Saghir, Volume 2 page 608 Hadith 8736 that has been declared ‘Sahih’ by Sunni Hafiz Jalaluddin Syuti -- وَقُلْ جَاء الْحَقُّ وَزَهَقَ الْبَاطِلُ إِنَّ الْبَاطِلَ كَانَ زَهُوقًا "The truth has prevailed, and falsehood has vanished; falsehood will inevitably vanish." - The Holy Quran Surah Isra, 17:81 ‏والآخر دعواتنا الحمد لله رب العالمين
  9. So my family are telling me shia is growing and will eventually have a bigger population then sunni's. Is that true?
  10. Imam Ali SA: Live among people in such a manner that if you die they weep over you and if you are alive they crave for your company. Nahj al-Balagha
  11. I want to say a few words about the tragedy of the great man. It is as if the Prince of the Believers (Ali) left this world just last night. Between the 2 nights: from the 19th night of Ramadhan, when Ameerul Mu'mineen Ali (as) was struck by the accursed person, till the 21st night of Ramadhan, some events occured that are full of lessons for us to learn. At the very moment that this enemy of Allah struck Ameerul Mu'mineen, the narrations state that our Master never groaned or yelled, he showed absolutely no sign of any pain. The only words that he said was: “In the name of God, by God, on the path of God! I swear by the Lord of the Ka'bah, I have succeeded!” After that Imam Hassan (as) put his father’s head in his lap. Narrations state that the blood was pouring from his head, and it had begun to cover his face. Imam Hassan was looking down at his father’s face. Tears began to flow from Imam Hassan’s face and some tears fell upon the blessed face of his father. Ameerul Mu'mineen (as) opened his eyes and said: “My dear Hassan, you’re crying? Please don’t cry! At this very moment I am with a group op people, they are all sending their salutations to me.” At the instance he was struck, narrations state that he said: “The Prophet (SAW) is here, my wife Fatima (as) is here!” Before they took his body, Imam Hassan finished the prayer, while Ameerul Mu'mineen was praying while sitting. The narrator states that the Imam was very unstable in the prayer and he was about to collapse many times. Eventually they took the Imam back to his home. And then a voice was heard saying: “The pillar of guidance has collapsed! Ali al-Murtadha has been murdered!” This voice was heard by all the people of Kufa, and the masses fled to the mosque with great commotion. Narrator states that the scene was like the day of Prophet died. After the Imam arrived at his home, Imam Hussain (as) came close to his father. Hussain had cried so much that his eyes were wounded. In such a short time, he had cried so much for his father. Ameerul Mu'mineen looked towards his son Hussain. He said: “My dear Hussain, please don’t cry, have patience. This is not an important matter, these things happen”. He condoled his son Imam Hussain. When they prepared the room for him and he lay there, the daughters of the Imam entered the room. Zainab (as) and Um Kulthoom (as) sat next to their father. They began to wail and cry profusely. When Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain cried, Ameerul Mu'mineen condoled his sons and urged them to be patient. But on this occasion, he could not bear to hear his daughter’s crying.. he began to cry and weep with them! Oh Ameerul Mu'mineen! You couldn’t bear to hear the cries of your Zainab on this occasion. Then what about the day of Ashura!? If you saw how your Zainab cried and wailed, what would you have done? Peace be upon you Ya Ameerul Mu'mineen.. Peace be upon you Ya Ameerul Mu'mineen!
  12. Questioner one of the different cases between Shiite and Sunni is the quality of performing wudu. like: wiping feet or washing it . I want you to make it clear that whether Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] Commander of Faithful [AS] would perform wudu like Shiite or Sunni? I 'd appreciate if you search about Sunni 's reliable hadiths to make this matter clear for adolescents like me SHORT ANSWER: The verse of ablution in Holly Quran has expressed clearly how to perform wudu .some of sunni scholars like: Ibn hazm, have emphasized that Quran 's decree is " wiping" and at the bottom of the verse of wudu, they have quoted the method of great companions like: Commander of faithful, ibn abbas and some other one who believed in touching SEARCHING ABOUT THIS ISSUE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF SUNNI NARRATIONS: it 's written in Sunni resources like: “musnad Ahmad” ibn hanbal, “al,mosannaf” Ibn abi sheibah, “sunan” ibn maje and some of their other resources that Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] and Commander of faithful, would touch their head and hands. so, Shiite 's wudu is in accordance with their[ prophet’s and Ali[AS] methods and traditions. These narrations have been confirmed by Sunni scholars some other narrations witch are opposing this issue: whether their documents have problem or they can 't stand against Holy Quran and valid narrations when it comes to opposition. and the act of companions shows the invalidity of these opposing narrations. DETAILED ANSWER "wudu" is one of the important obligations in Islam. performing the obligation of prayer without "Wudu" or its substitute [ tayamum , ghosl ] is not correct and won 't be accepted by god almighty. يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا إِذا قُمْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلاةِ فَاغْسِلُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَ أَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلَى الْمَرافِقِ وَ امْسَحُوا بِرُؤُسِكُمْ وَ أَرْجُلَكُمْ إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ وَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ جُنُباً فَاطَّهَّرُوا وَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مَرْضى‏ أَوْ عَلى‏ سَفَرٍ أَوْ جاءَ أَحَدٌ مِنْكُمْ مِنَ الْغائِطِ أَوْ لامَسْتُمُ النِّساءَ فَلَمْ تَجِدُوا ماءً فَتَيَمَّمُوا صَعيداً طَيِّباً فَامْسَحُوا بِوُجُوهِكُمْ وَ أَيْديكُمْ مِنْهُ ما يُريدُ اللَّهُ لِيَجْعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ حَرَجٍ وَ لكِنْ يُريدُ لِيُطَهِّرَكُمْ وَ لِيُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهُ عَلَيْكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ (مائده/6) O ye who believe! When ye rise up for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands up to the elbows, and lightly rub your heads and your feet up to the ankles. And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it. Allah would not place a burden on you, but He would purify you and would perfect His grace upon you, that ye may give thanks there is difference between Muslims in how to perform Wudu. one of these differences is how to touch or wash our feet the view of Shiite according to this verse and valid narrations from prophet Muhammad [pbuh] and Ahl Al-bayt [as] is this that, feet must be touched , because this sentence [wash your faces and your hands up to the elbow ] is the factor of the word [feet] and the word [ feet] refers to the word [heads] ,in this case the meaning of verse is this:" wipe your feet and heads" thus, the verdict of head and feet is "WIPE “ on the other hand some of valid narrations from prophet Muhammad [PBUH] and his Ahl Al-bayt confirm this opinion of Shiite and indicate that prophet [PBUH] would perform wudu like this so, the act of Shiite is accordance with Holy Quran 's decree and the method of prophet [PBUH]. some of narrations of Ahl Al-bayt[as] which are related to wipe feet and head were searched in separated files. ACCORDING TO SHIITE NARRATIONS, IF FEET ARE WASHED OR WIPED WHILE PERFORMING WUDU? The view of some Sunni is that feet are washed. their main reason is this that the word [feet] is object for the word [wash] which is in previous sentence.it means they believe that the word [washing] is the factor for the word {feet} not the word [wipe] which in the same sentence. in response to the misconception of these guys, Ibn Al-hazm a sunni famous scholar says: سْأَلَةٌ وأما قَوْلُنَا في الرِّجْلَيْنِ فإن الْقُرْآنَ نَزَلَ بِالْمَسْحِ (وَامْسَحُوا برؤوسكم ((برءوسكم)) وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ) وَسَوَاءٌ قرىء (قرئ) بِخَفْضِ اللاَّمِ أو بِفَتْحِهَا هِيَ على كل حَالٍ عَطْفٌ على الرؤوس (الرءوس) إمَّا على اللَّفْظِ وإما على الْمَوْضِعِ لاَ يَجُوزُ غَيْرُ ذلك لأنه لاَ يَجُوزُ أَنْ يُحَالَ بين الْمَعْطُوفِ وَالْمَعْطُوفِ عليه بِقَضِيَّةٍ مُبْتَدَأَةٍ وَهَكَذَا جاء عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ نَزَلَ الْقُرْآنُ بِالْمَسْحِ يَعْنِي في الرِّجْلَيْنِ في الْوُضُوءِ وقد قال بِالْمَسْحِ على الرِّجْلَيْنِ جَمَاعَةٌ من السَّلَفِ منهم عَلِيُّ بن أبي طَالِبٍ وابن عَبَّاسٍ وَالْحَسَنُ وَعِكْرِمَةُ وَالشَّعْبِيُّ وَجَمَاعَةٌ وغيرهم (غيرهم) وهو قَوْلُ الطَّبَرِيِّ but our opinion about feet ' s decree is this that, wiping feet has been sent down in Holy Quran it means what is written in Quran is this that feet must be wiped. the word [feet] whether its fourth letter is majroor [feet]or with fathe [feet ]in both cases it refers to [heads] , this reference is whether to the word or place [if it refers to the word [heads] , since its Erab is majroor (heads) , the word [feet] must be read majroor (feet) and if it refers to the place of [heads] since the word "heads" is in the position of subject , and its Erab is mansoob," feet" must be read mansoob (feet]and any thing except what was told is incorrect, because a new matter could not be raised between referred word and reference and it 's been quoted by "Ibn Abbas" according to "Holy Quran" feet 's decree is wiping a group of ancients like :Ali [as] , Ibn Abas , Hasan basri, Akrame, shabi and some other one believe in touching feet.

REVIWEING THE NARRATION: CONTRADICTORY WITH OTHER NARRATIONS This narration is in contradictory with Quran and other narrations that were cited at the first of the article. “ SEARCHING ABOUT PROPHET wudu. FINAL RESULT VALID narrations that were quoted from Sunni’ sources prove that, Prophet Mohammad [ PBUH] and Commander of faithful [AS] would wipe their feet in wudu but opposing narrations : FIRSTLY: most of them are weak in term of document. SECONDLY: even if their documents are valid , they are in contradictory with Quran and other valid narrations and can not stand against them And important point is this that some opposing narrations have been quoted by one person. Like Hamran Ibn Aban narration that quote “ Osman’s” wudu THIRDLY: some of Prophet’s companions like : Commander of faithful [ AS ] Ibn Abbas and folowers and many of Sunni scholars believe in TOUCHING feet . so any Muslim person should do accordance with Qurans’ order and Prophet’s[PBUH] and Ahl Al-bayt’s orders.

  13. There are numerous saying by Imam Ali (as) on a variety of topics. He has inspired millions around the world. Starting a thread in commemoration of Imam Ali (as) whereby requesting ShiaChatters to post quotes from others (Muslim, Non-Muslim, etc.) on what they say about Imam Ali (as). One I came across recently: Sa’sa’a bin Suhan was one of Imam Ali’s companions and a renowned and consummate orator; he was commended by the famous man of letters, al-Jahidh. When he wanted to congratulate the Imam on his election to the office of Caliphate, he said something to the Imam that was different from what all the other people said, thus, “O Ali! You adorned the caliphate with splendour. You are the source of its pride. It granted you neither grandeur nor pride. The caliphate was in need of a person of your calibre, and yet you were not in need of its [allure]. I, therefore, congratulate the caliphate because your name has become synonymous with it; I do not applaud you because you have become the Caliph!”
  14. Imam Ali (as) wrote to Salman al Farsi (ra) : To continue, surely, the likeness of this world is that of a snake: it is soft to touch, and deadly poisonous. The ignorant child is distracted by it, and the one with understanding and intellect is cautious of it. So turn away from what fascinates you in it, for how little of it stays with you.
  15. The man of knowledge is the one who recognizes that what is known is very little compared to what is not known, and as a result he considers himself ignorant, and accordingly he increases his efforts to know more by going out in search of knowledge.
  16. In reply to some one who posed Imam Ali (as) a difficult question, Imam Ali (as) said : 'Ask in order to understand, and do not ask in order to find fault, for surely the ignorant man who wants to learn resembles a man of knowledge, and surely a man of knowledge who wants to be difficult resembles an ignorant man who wants to find fault. '
  17. Man is a social being, it means he has to live among people, and to live among others has some certain requirements. One of the most important requirements is respecting others rights. It is clear that when you live among people, you have some limitations and you cannot behave as you wish! For instance, if your home is in an apartment complex, you are not allowed to make noise whatever you want. Second example can be brought about driving a car. There are many cars on the street and all of them want to drive in a relax environment, so it is not good to horn unreasonable and very much. There are many examples that you can find with a little attention. One of the most complete sentence in this regard is the sentence of Imam Ali (A.S): “make yourself the judge between you and the others. Like for the others what you like for yourself and dislike for them what you dislike for yourself … Whatever you think as being bad for the others to do, think of it as being bad for you too to do. Deal with people in a way as you like them to deal with you. Do not talk about what you do not know well. Do not say to the others what you do not like to be said to you.” ((Nahj-ul-Balagha / The letter of 31)
  18. Ghadeer - Meaning of Mawla: Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?”People cried and answered: "Yes, O’ Messenger of God.”Then Prophet (S) held up the hand of ‘Ali and said: "Whoever I am his Mawla, ‘Ali is his Mawla. O’ God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him." ألَسْتُ أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم؟ قالوا بلى يارسول الله. قال: من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه. اللهم وال من والاه و عاد من عاداه.

First we should look the prophet has what characteristics being Mawla of believers in order to derive its real meaning for the Imam Ali? The Prophet is Mawla of believers; First I make this clear that he prophet is the seal of the prophets and there is no prophet after him. لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا Ye have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern of (conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day and who engages much in the praise of Allah. (33:21) But he has declared himself Mawla of the believers, so that we should find specific characteristics attributed to him in relation to the believers قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ ٣١} : Say: "If ye do love Allah follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful."

Obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from him while you hear [him]. 024:054 Say, ‘Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger.’ But if you turn your backs, [you should know that] he is only responsible for his burden and you are responsible for your own burden, and if you obey him, you will be guided, and the Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. 047:033 O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and do not render your works void. ٣_١٣٢ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ ٥_٩٢ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَٱحْذَرُوا۟ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ فَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّمَا عَلَىٰ رَسُولِنَا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ 003:132 and obey Allah and the Messenger so that you may be granted [His] mercy. 005:092 And obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and beware; but if you turn your backs, then know that Our Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. ٨_٤٦ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَلَا تَنَٰزَعُوا۟ فَتَفْشَلُوا۟ وَتَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ ۖ وَٱصْبِرُوٓا۟ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ 008:046 And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute, or you will lose heart and your power will be gone. And be patient; indeed Allah is with the patient. ٦٤_١٢ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَىٰ رَسُولِنَا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ 064:012 Obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away, then Our Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تُقَدِّمُوا۟ بَيْنَ يَدَىِ ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ ۖ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌۭ 049:001 O you who have faith! Do not venture ahead of Allah and His Messenger, and be wary of Allah. Indeed Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing. Similarly for imam Ali being Mawla: “Obey Allah and messenger” / (who is also mawla). So obeying the Mawla is mandatory. Thus confirms that the meaning of Mawala as given in Ghaderr narration is leader who is to be followed/Obeyed, like for the prophet who is also Mawla of believers. Thus confirming that Imaam Ali is Mawla of believers and he is the leader after the prophet and he should be obeyed with the same authority as that of the prophet on believers. Hadith Manzlia: The Messenger of Allah said to ‘Ali: "Your position to me is like the position of Aaron (Haroon) to Moses, except that there shall be no Prophet after me" أنتَ مني بمنزلة هارون من موسى إلا إنَّهُ لا نبيَّ بعدي Sunni References: (1) Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English version, Traditions 5.56, 5.700 (2) Sahih Muslim, Arabic, v4, pp 1870-71 (3) Sunan Ibn Majah, p12 (4) Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v1, p174 (5) al-Khasa’is, by al-Nisa’i, pp 15-16 (6) Mushkil al-Athar, by al-Tahawi, v2, p309 The hadith is recorded in two Sahiheen. It is graded as Sahih: by many sunni scholars., وَلَقَدْ قَالَ لَهُمْ هَٰرُونُ مِن قَبْلُ يَٰقَوْمِ إِنَّمَا فُتِنتُم بِهِۦ ۖ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكُمُ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنُ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى وَأَطِيعُوٓا۟ أَمْرِى {٩٠} 020:090 Aaron had certainly told them earlier, ‘O my people! You are only being tested by it. Indeed your Lord is the All-beneficent. So follow me and obey my command!’ This verse was revealed describing the Haroon told his people that they should follow him and obey him. If we look in the quran then this word فَٱتَّبِعُونِى has been used only in two verses of quran. First in the verse 3:31 as given below where the prophet Muhammad saww has said that the Muslims should follow him. قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ {٣١} 003:031 Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, and Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful.’ In the light of Hadith Manzila Imam Ali has same relation with the Prophet as Haroon has to Musa. The quran confirms that haroon was minister / adviser and successor after Musa like wise as per hadith Manzila Imam Ali is minister and successor after the Prophet Muhammad saww. Also the verse (20:90) "Fatab-uni" confirms that the Children of Israel should follow Haroon in succession to Mosa as likewise Imam Ali should be followed in succession of Muhamamd saww. Also the people should obey Imam Ali likewise they were ordered to obey haroon as. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُو۟لِى ٱلْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ فَإِن تَنَٰزَعْتُمْ فِى شَىْءٍۢ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْءَاخِرِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌۭ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا {٥٩} 04:059 O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those vested with authority among you. And if you dispute concerning anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you have faith in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more favorable in outcome. كِتَٰبٌ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَٰرَكٌۭ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوٓا۟ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُو۟لُوا۟ ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ 038:029 [This is] a blessed Book that We have sent down to you, so that they may contemplate its signs, and that those who possess intellect may take admonition. ألَسْتُ أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم؟ قالوا بلى يارسول الله لنَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ The Prophet has more authority over the believers than themselves. (33:36) Thus it confirms that Mawla has more authority over believers than themselves. This is the real meaning of Mawla who is Leader after the prophet Muhammad saw. And Imam Ali is Mawla (Leader) of believers.
  19. Assalamu Alaykum, This is my first post, I have attempted to place this in the correct forum/sub-forum. Please forgive me if I have not done so, Insha Allah. I have a question to respectfully ask, and I do not intend to disrespect any person. There are certain parts of Nahjol Balaghaa that have led me to question and enquire further. It is truly the peak of eloquence, however, I cannot pretend that there are not some areas which have upset my view of Imam Ali - without tainting all the positive things, I thought I might enquire about one particular section which troubled me, and insha Allah someone may be able to offer their own view. Whatever your view may be, I would appreciate your contribution. In letter 54, 'To Talha and az-Zobayr through Emraan bn al-Hosayn al-Khozaai' [28] the explanatory notes tell of Imam Ali setting aside a slave girl from the one-fifth of "chomps" (?) received by Imam. Four of his men decided to complain to the Prophet PBUHAHP and he replied "What do you want me to do to Ali?" - repeating thrice - and then "surely Ali is from me and I am from him, and after me he is the Master of all the believers." Reading this really upset me - on so many occasions I look towards Ahlul Bayt and on so many days the wise words of Imam Ali AS have been uplifting. The other theme which is occasionally evident throughout NB, is Imam Ameer Al Momineen's stance on women being weak minded - I am always affected when I come across those expressions and similar ones, as I have achieved much without males in my life, and at times my conditioned has even been worsened by males. Also, with regard to women not being able to be trusted - I have come across many men who would forget about morality for this world - some part of me wants to believe that the Imam was refering ro his time and era in particular, and that if he saw the condition of societies today and the state of men, he might have said otherwise. I apologise for the length, and Insha Allah this has not offended anybody. I do not want to give up on Islam and Ahlul Bayt, hence the reason for my writing. Wa'alaykum Wassalam Blessings from Australia
  20. Salaam dear brothers and sisters, One of my Sunni friends told me something obscure (at least for me). He described to me a happening during the time of rassulallah (s.a.w.w). He said that once imam ali(a.s) missed his asr prayer and he came crying to the prophet about this. the prophet then order the sun to go back, and it did go back. This way he was able to correct this and pray asr on time. This is what he says is the reason why we shias combine our prayers. it may not be exactly what he said but as the friend told me this quite a while back, this is what i remembered. I just want to know if there is anything similar to this event that exists in hadith books. and how am i suppose to reply him in this regard. Jazakallah kair in advance for your patience and reply. wasalaam.
  21. Salaam all, I have gathered a few questions which have come to my mind and I would very much be interested in hearing the shia school of thought side. If the questions come across offensive, this is in no way my intention so please do not take it aggressively. Also, if points could be backed up with Quran and Hadith it would be preferred. 1) If Shia'ism is the closest method of seeking nearness to Allah - why are Sunnis in charge of Makkah & Medina etc? 2) How can the Prophet (pbuh) have spent his whole life amongst his companions (namely those who are known as the caliphs today) and loved the Sahaba when they were going to carry out acts which are claimed by the Shia school of thought - surely Allah (swt) would have prevented/informed him if this were to be the case? 3) It says in Qur'an Majeed in Sooratun Nasr that we will see the Deen of Allah being accepted in multitudes, which we are seeing today. However people are predominantly following the majority school, sunnism - could this be an indication that this school of thought is that which is nearest to reach Allah (swt)? I have more questions but will take it a bit at a time. Thank you in advance to all those who offer an intellectual insight.
  22. 28 Merits specifically for Imam Ali (as) The following is taken from the book Al-Qatra by Sayed Ahmad Mustanbat Vol. 2, Pg. 205, Hadith. 57 From the book ‘Al-Majmoe al-Raiq min azhaar al-Hadaiq’, 100 merits specifically for Amir al-Momineen (as), from those which Shaikh Sadooq narrated on the day of Ghadeer in the year 361 Hijri, with the chain of narrators going up to the Prophet (saww) about those merits which Allah (swt) chose specifically for Amir Al-Momineen (as). And from those I have chosen 28 merits: أن الله تعالى خلقه من نور عظمته، كما قال النبي: خلقت أنا و عليّ من نور واحد Allah (swt) created Imam Ali (as) from the light (noor) of His greatness/Majesty, as the Prophet (saww) has said, "I and Ali were created from a single light (noor)." أنه كان يعبد الله في أصلاب آبائه و أرحام امهاته من لدن آدم Imam Ali (as) worshiped Allah (swt) in the loins of His forefathers and wombs of his mother's since Adam (as). أنه لما وُلد ظهر نور من عنان السماء إلي ظهر الكعبة، و سقطت الأصنام الّتي كانت على الكعبة [على وجوها]، و صاح إبليس و قال: ويل للأصنام و عبدتها من هذا المولود When Imam Ali (as) was born, light (noor) appeared from the sky to the surface of the Ka'ba. And the idols that were upon the Ka’ba fell down [upon their faces]. And Iblees cried out saying, 'Woe be to the Idols and its worshipers from this new born' أنه [كان] يفسّر حديث رسول الله و يذكر حديث كلّ نبيّ. Imam Ali (as) used to explain (do tafseer) of the sayings (hadith) of the Prophet (saww) and He used to narrate (or remember?) the sayings (hadith) of all the Messengers. أنه عيبة علم رسول الله. Imam Ali (as) is the container of the knowledge of the Prophet (saww). أنه مفرّج الكرب عن وجه رسول الله. Imam Ali (as) was the one to drive away distress/worries from the face of the Prophet (saww). أنه شبيه عيسى بن مريم في دلالته إلّا النبوّة Imam Ali (as) is similar to Isa bin Maryam (as) in his proofs except for Prophet Hood. أنه شبيه أيّوب في صبره Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ayyub (as) in his patience. أنه شبيه إبراهيم في سخائه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ibraheem (as) in his generosity. أنه شبيه داود في قوّته و صوته Imam Ali (as) is similar to Dawood (as) in his power/strength and in his voice. أنه شبيه سليمان في بهجته و ملكه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Sulayman (as) in his splendor/beauty and his supremacy. أنه شبيه لقمان في حكمته Imam Ali (as) is similar to Lukman (as) in his wisdom. أنه شبيه إسماعيل في تسليمه و صدقه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ismaeel (as) in his acceptance/submission and honesty. أنه شبيه نوح في إجابة دعائه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Nooh (as) in the acceptance of his prayer. أنه شبيه ذي النون في أمره Imam Ali (as) is similar to Yunus (as) in his affairs. أنه شبيه رسول الله في قضائه إلّا النبوّة Imam Ali (as) is similar to the Prophet (saww) in his judgement/ruling except for Prophet Hood. أنه كان [في الغزوات] جبرئيل عن يمينه، و ميكائيل عن يساره، و ملك الموت بين يديه فلا يرجع حتّى يفتح الله عليه. Imam Ali (as) when in battles, had Jibraeel on his right side and Mikaeel on his left side and the angel of death in front of Him. And He did not return until Allah (swt) granted victory upon Him. أنه أوّل من يدعى باسمه يوم القيامة Imam Ali (as) is the first one to be called by His name on the day of Judgement. أن الملائكة تتقرّب إلى الله [تعالى] بولايته The angels seek nearness to Allah (swt) by means of Wilayat of Imam Ali (as). أنه قالع باب الخيبر الرامي به خلف ظهره أربعين ذراعاً ثمّ جعله جسراً، [حمله] على كفّه حتّى عبّر [عليه] جميع العسكر Imam Ali (as) uprooted the door of Khaibar and threw it behind his back to a distance of 40 arm’s length. Then made it a bridge, carrying it upon the palm of his hand until all the soldiers crossed over. أنّ ولايته عرضت على بقاع الأرضين، فمن قبل ولايته طاب و زكا، و من لم يقبل صار سباخاً The Wilayah of Imam Ali (as) was put forth to parts of the earth. So those parts that accepted His Wilayah become beautiful and pure. And those who did not accept His Wilayah became salty land (not supporting any growth) أنّ ولايته عرضت على النبات، فما قبل ولايته صار نافعاً للناس، و من لم يقبل صار سمّاً قاتلاً The Wilayah of Imam Ali (as) was put forth to the plants. So those that accepted His Wilayah became beneficial/useful for the people and those that did not accept His Wilayah became poisonous killing. أنّ القمر كلّمه ليلة القدر The moon talked to Imam Ali (as) on night of Qadr. استغناؤه عن جميع الناس و افتقارهم إليه في العلوم Imam Ali (as) was free (in no need) from all the people and the people were in need of Imam Ali (as) in knowledge. أنّه كان مع كلّ نبيّ سرّاً و مع رسول الله جهراً Imam Ali (as) was along with all the Prophets secretly and with Prophet Mohammad apparently. أنّ حلقة باب الجنّة إذا ضربت طنّت و قالت: يا عليّ When the ring of the door of paradise is hit/struck, it rings and says ‘Ya Ali’. أنّ شجرة طوبى في الجنّة في داره، و أغصانها في دور المؤمنين. The tree of Tooba in Paradise is in the house of Imam Ali (as) and its branches are in the houses of the believers. أنّه كتاب الله الناطق. Imam Ali (as) is the book of speaking book of Allah (swt).

  23. 786. Hi, Salam-Aleikum... I been hearing about this website for months from my brother but I just never went on it but now that I am finally taking my new journey of becoming a better Muslim seriously.... I want to know what some of your favorite quotes from the Najal Balaga or any quotes you heard from one of the 12 Imams are? One of my favorite quote that I am always drawing on papers and et cetra is by Imam Ali (a.s.) "Be like the flower that gives its fragrance to even the hand that crushes it" Thank you for answering !
