  1. Mosques and shrine of the companion of prophet (pbuh) Sasaah bin Suhan (rh) attacked by regime forces in Bahrain
  2. From you all a lesson is derived Not once did you complain The calamities you all survived The length of suffering and intense pain Nevertheless the way the wind blows Without a doubt in his head It is clear to see who was chose Who was it that spent a night in his bed The rain of agony showered upon you all A blessing in disguise With each drop you remained humble&tall It gently made it clear who to despise Oh those of the household The way each action you mould each ounce of knowledge you have told Be sure to know you all define. Gold.
  3. This is a poem I wrote, Insh'Allah people may learn or benefit from this. The sun creeped higher the moon shone his name as long as the skies would allowColours roared across like fire Whilst stars needed to dim, but how Each sky ripped apartSeeing what was about to be They showered love from the startNow, crying & yearning so longly The head that held secrets unspeakable Knowledge unimaginableAnd love undeniable Began prostration Invincible was he to any oppressorBut this fatal strike would be ultimateIt was time to be with his master&for time is unstoppable Oh Ali we cry at the image of your painMay the wind guide you with easenow your fate shall reignYour serving may be over but your amazements shall always seize
  4. Salaamu 'Alaykum, During my stay in Najaf al-Ashraf I was given the honor to reside with many 'Ulema and tulaba of the Hawza. One day a wakeel of Hafiz Bashir al-Najafi (HA) and Sayyid Sadiq Shirazi (HA) came to visit me (even though I don't deserve any visitation) and they started discussing with me in regards to Islamic history. For the 'Ulema, it is a source of interest to hear the point of view of American Shi'a Muslims. Moving on we discussed the Battle of Jamal and Ayesha's wrongdoings, when I out of habit said something inappropriate about az-Zubayr. I somewhat cursed him, due to my ignorance. Almost immediately the wakeel rebuked me with an IMMENSELY ANGRY tone that az-Zubayr, although originally on the wrong side, asked Amir al-Mo'mineen for forgiveness and left the battlefield. He, az-Zubayr, was ashamed of his wrong doing thus he attempted to return home to Madina. During his trip back an assassin from the camp of Ayesha deceived him and killed him whilst he was in prayer, thus az-Zubayr died a martyr. When Ameer al-Mo'mineen (A) received the news of this he wept significantly and made much Du'a for his forgiveness. After hearing this narrative from the wakeel I have been troubled by this very much so and I would like to know why do we, Shi'a, not give az-Zubayr similar treatment to Hur ibn Yazid? A general of an army in the midst of an eminent war realizes his mistake, and asks for forgiveness from the Ahlul-Bayt (S), and later is killed on this basis should be honored, but he is not. I look at myself as one who has been blessed with much study in history but even with all what I studied I never had a good impression of az-Zubayr. How can this be? And when I take the name of az-Zubayr in front of our Shi'a brothers, even learned ones, they tend to ridicule him. Why is this so? -Agha Shabbir Abbas
  5. Interesting Speech.. Let me know what you thought of it. http://t.co/McbrljXMKF (wasalam)
  6. hello all, i had a dream a few nights ago about attending Imam Ali's (a.s.) birthday event. so me and my mom and my aunty and my little sister were attending this event in a place that looked like a mosque (somewhere in iran because all the people there spoke farsi). my aunty and i were debating on which coloured chador (iranian burqa) to wear. i could pick between three shades of red. either a hot/bright red coloured one, or a pinky-red/coral coloured one or a burgundy/maroon coloured one. i wanted to either wear the bright red or the burgundy one and my aunty kept persuading me to wear the coral one but i wanted to wear the bright red one because my mom had taken the burgundy one. so i finally put it on (we were wearing black hijab underneath) and we entered the mosque. as i entered i was suddenly all alone, and i saw many women sitting in the mosque and it was quite noisy, now in my dream i knew i was attending this event to help around/volunteer and the helpers were assigned certain colours to wear depending on their roles. i was a guard/helper to show people where to go or find things and make sure everything runs smoothly, and this role had the colour red and other roles were blue or pink or green. so i entered and everyone was looking at me but decided not to care too much because i knew i was there to help and for a good reason, but also thought that maybe it was because i was wearing red, and in my dream i thought i was there to help in a mourning death anniversary event. so thats why i thought people were looking at me because i was wearing red on such an event. but regardless i did my thing and was standing there. and this girl (probably 20 years old) who was very sweet, kind and bubbly came up to me and she asked how i was etc...and then she asked me you know what this event is about right? and i said yeah it's the martyrdom/death anniversary of Imam Hussain (a.s.) in karbala and she was like noo it's the birthday of Amir al momenin (a.s.) in a very "happy, don't you feel lucky?!?!" kinda of tone, and then i became really happy and overwhelmed to be volunteering at such an event, and then i woke up. p.s. everyone was wearing black which was surprising to me because i wondered why people aren't wearing happier colours on such a joyous event. i would appreciate it if any of you could give me some info on what it could mean, because i feel like there is a lot of contradicting moments in the dream haha thank you :)
  7. Salams my dear Muslim brothers and sisters and all who stand up for justice regardless of their religious background.... Allah, the Creator of the universe is against oppression. This is what Allah says about justice.... Does even one person on this forum want to be ruled by a nonMuslim dictatorship regime when most of the population are Muslim believers? No one wants to have their lives dictated by a dictatorship including everyone who is against the freedom for Syrians on this forum. O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah , even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted. Imam Ali and Imam Husain and Sayeda Zaynab would have fought with the Syrians who have been struggling for 40 years to get freedom. The Syrians have noticed that this Arab Spring where freedom brought down the dictatorships of Qaddafi of Libya and BenAli of Tunisia and Mubarak of Egypt is their opportunity. It is true that the Assad regime is important to Hezbollah getting weapons from Iran. However Hezbollah should have more tawakul on Allah instead of the nonMuslim Baathist Assad regime. There are extremists within the Syrian opposition but they are a very small percentage of the total opposition fighter force...although these takfiris get a lot of Western media because western media is obsessed only on them. My brothers and sisters, of course we don't want like the takfiris...but we MUST trust Allah and support justice as Allah says above... "even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just." Otherwise your speaking out for supporting Assad regime is damaging your akhirat.... Whoever intercedes for a good cause will have a reward therefrom; and whoever intercedes for an evil cause will have a burden therefrom. And ever is Allah , over all things, a Keeper. By speaking of support for the nonMuslim Nusairi religion against the Muslim believers fighting your freedom, you are interceding for an unjust cause and you will carry the burden....already over 80,000 Syrians have been killed, most of them Muslim believers killed by the nonMuslim Baathist DICTATORSHIP regime of the Assad family. The choice is yours.....either stand up for justice or face the consequences of supporting injustice and having lack of trust in Allah for the final outcome. I am not against any person of any religion getting their just rights...The nonMuslim Nusairis who are not fighting the Muslim freedom fighters should get rights to live freely without any harm as should the Christians, the Jews, etc...but the tyranny of the minority MUST not continue to rule and kill the majority Muslims of Syria. But whoever kills a believer intentionally - his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment. My brothers and sisters, some of you are supporting those (nonMuslim Baathist DICTATORSHIP Assad family) who are killing the believer Muslims by supporting them with your words.....Israel killed over 14 hundred Muslims in Lebanon several years ago....Baathist DICTATORSHIP nonMuslim Nusairi led Assad regime has killed over 80 thousand! Our preferences are not worth supporting injustice....this is NOT a football game...it is about freedom or dictatorship....If we don't support justice and freedom and have TRUST in Allah that the small percentage of takfiris (who are despised by most of the Syrian opposition freedom fighters)...then don't be surprised if we get the deserved punishment from Allah. Imam Ali, Imam Husain, and Sayeda Zaynab would support the Syrian opposition forces without an iota of doubt.....they would not care for shrines.....they would care for justice. It is about time we follow the examples of Imam Ali and his teacher, Prophet Muhammad and be like Hurr who changed his allegiance from the dictatorship of Ibn Ziyad to Imam Husain at Karbala. It is about time those of us (hopefully not the majority) who support the dictatorship of the nonMuslim Nusairi led regime to switch our allegiance to justice and support the Syrian freedom fighters (most of them who are NOT takfiris). WE ARE WALKING TOWARDS THE JUSTICE OF HELLFIRE IF WE SUPPORT ASSAD REGIME IN KILLING THE MUSLIM FREEDOM FIGHTERS OUR OF OUR SECTARIAN PREFERENCES INSTEAD OF SUBMITTING AND TRUSTING Allah AND INSTEAD OF SUPPORTING JUSTICE HERE IN THIS TEST OF DUNYA.
  8. 44 HADITHS FOR VITUES of IMAM ALI (A.S.) I have got these hadiths mentioning the virtues of Imam Ali AS, from facebook and these are being presented for sharing of information: HADITH 1: عن أبي حمزة الثمالي قال: سمعت علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام يقول: إن فاطمة بنت أسد رضي الله عنها ضربها الطلق وهي في الطواف، فدخلت الكعبة فولدت أمير المؤمنين علي عليه السلام فيها. Abu hamzah Thumali narrats that he heard Imam al-Sajjad ('a) say: Fatimah bint Asad ('a) was circumambulating the Ka'bah when suddenly she appeared to feel the pangs of birth.

HADITH 2: وروي عن عتاب بن أسيد أنه قال: ولد أمير المؤمنين علي بن أبن طالب عليه السلام بمكة في بيت الله الحرام يوم الجمعة لثلاث عشرة ليلة خلت من رجب، وللنبي صلى الله عليه وآله ثمان و عشرون سنة، قبل النبوة باثنتين عشرة سنة Attab ibn Usayd narrates: Amir al-Mu'min 'Ali ibn Abi Talib ('a) was born on Friday, the thirteenth day of Rajab, in the Holy precint of Ka'bah, in Mecca, twelve years before the Prophet's (proclamation of) Messengership of Allah. At that time the Prophet (s) was twenty eight years old. HADITH 3: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: خير من يمشي على وجه الأرض بعدي علي بن أبي طالب. The Prophet (S) said: 'After me, the best to walk on earth is 'Ali. HADITH 4: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لعلي عليه السلام: أنت خير أمتي في الدنيا والآخرة.

HADITH 7: قال أبان عن سليم قال: جلست إلى علي عليه السلام بالكوفة في المسجد و الناس حوله، فقال: سلوني عن كتاب الله، فو الله ما نزلت آية من كتاب الله إلا وقد أقرأنيها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله و علمني تأويلها. Aban reports frm salim who said: With many others we were sitting in the mosque at Kufah, when 'Ali (a) said: Before you lose me (forever) ask me about anything about the Book of Allah. There is not a single verse that was not recited to me by the Prophet (S) who also explained to me its exoteric and esoteric meanings. HADITH 8: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لكل نبي وصي ووارث، وإن عليا وصيي ووارثي. The Prophet (S) said: Every Prophet left behind a testamentary trustee as his successor and this 'Ali here is my testamentary trustee and my heir. HADITH 9: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت زوج سيدة النساء العالمين وخليفة خير المرسلين. The Prophet (S) said: O 'Ali, you are the spouse of the doyenne of all women and you are the vicegerent of the best of the Prophets. HADITH 10: عن أبي ذر الغفاري قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أنا خاتم الأنبياء، و أنت يا علي! خاتم الأوصياء إلى يوم الدين. Abu dhar al-Ghifari narrates that the Prophet (S) said: I am the last of the Prophets and you, O 'Ali, are the last of the testamentary trustees until Doomsday. HADITH 11: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: من أراد منكم النجاة بعدي فليتمسك بولاية علي بن أبي طالب، فإنه الصديق الأكبر والفاروق الأعظم، وهو إمام مسلم بعدي. The Prophet (S) said: Whoever desires to attain salvation should adhere to the vicegerency of 'Ali bni abi Talib, for he is the Greatest of all truthful men and the eminent distinguisher and the Imam of all Muslims. HADITH 12: عن أبي ذر قال: قال رسول الله صلى عليه وآله: من سره أن يحيى حياتي ويموت مماتي ويسكن جنة عدن التي غرسها ربي، فليتول عليا بعدي، وليوال وليه، وليقتد بالأئمة من بعده. فإنهم عترتي، خلقهم الله من لحمي ودمي، وإياهم فهمي وعلمي. ويل للمكذبين بفضلهم من أمتي! لا أنالهم الله شفاعتي. Abu dhar narrates that the Prophet (s) said: Whoever desires to live like me and die like me and to have his eternal abode in the Paradise created by my Lord, should acknowledge 'Ali as his guardian, after me. He should befriend his friends and abide by the Imams succeeding him. They are my offspring created from my flesh and blood and Allah has endowed them with my Wisdom. Owe upon my followers who deny their merits, for such deniers would be deprived of my intercessions. HADITH 13: عن جابر قال: سمعت ابن مسعود يقول: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: حرم على النار من آمن بي وأحب عليا وتولاه، ولعن الله من مارى عليا وناوأه. علي مني كجلدة ما بين العينين والحاجب. Jabir says that ibn Mas'ud sait that the Prophet (s) said: Allah has forbidden hellfire on anyone who declares his faith and adores 'Ali ibn Abi Talib. Allah's curse upon those who oppose 'Ali, confront him and bear enmity towards him. The relationship between me and 'Ali is like the one between the eyeball and eyelid. HADITH 14: عن ابن عباس قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: لو يعلم الناس متى سمي علي أمير المؤمنين ما أنكروا فضله. سمي أمير المؤمنين و آدم بين الروح والجسد. فقوله تعالى: "وإذ أخذ ربك من بني آدم من ظهورهم ذريتهم وأشهدهم على أنفسهم ألست بربكم قالوا بلى". فقالت الملائكة: بلى، فقال الله تبارك وتعالى: "أنا ربكم ومحمد نبيكم وعلي وليكم و أميركم". Ibn Abbas: The Prophet (s) said: If only people knew 'Ali was conferred the tithe of 'Commander of the Faithful' they would n0t hesitate to acknowledge his merit. 'Ali was conferred the title of 'Amir al-Mu'minin' even as Adam was in the midst of the process of being vivified. Allah said: "When your Lord took out the progeny of Adam and took the covenant from them by Asking 'Am I not your Lord? And when every one, including the angels affirmed, the Lord said, 'I am your Lord, Muhammad is the Messenger and 'Ali is the Guardian over you. HADITH 15: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت أمير أمتي وحجة الله عليها بعدي، قولك قولي، وأمرك أمري، ونهيك نهيي، ومعصيتك معصيتي، وطاعتك طاعتي، وزجرك زجري، وحزبك حزبي، وحزبي حزب الله: "ومن يتول الله ورسوله والذين آمنوا فإن حزب الله هم الغالبون". The Prophet (s) said: O 'Ali, you are the commander over my community and Allah's authority, after me. Your word is my word and your command is my command. Whatever you prohibit is also prohibited by me. Your army is my army and my army is Allah's legion. "When one is chosen by Allah as the guardian over the believers, he shall certainly be victorious". HADITH 16: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي طاعته طاعتي، ومعصيته معصيتي. The Prophet (S) said: Obedience to 'Ali is obedience to me. To disobey 'Ali is like disobeying Me. HADITH 17: عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: فرض الله عليكم طاعة علي بعدي كما فرض عليكم طاعتي، ونهاكم عن معصيته كما نهاكم عن معصيتي. حبه إيمان وبغضه كفر. أنا وهو أبوا هذه الأمة. The Prophet (s) said: Allah has also made obedience to 'Ali obligatory upon you in the same manner in which He made obedience to me mandatory upon you. Like forbidding disobedience to me, Allah has forbidden disobedience to 'Ali. To be friend him is faith and hatred for him is infidelity. He and I are like fathers of this community. HADITH 18: في حديث عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: يا بن عباس! إذا أردت أن تلقى الله وهو عنك راض، فاسلك طريقة علي بن أبي طالب، ومل معه حيث مال، وارض به إماما، وعاد من عاداه، ووال من والاه. The Prophet (s) told ibn 'Abbas: If you desire Allah to be pleased with you when you meet Him, follow the path of 'Ali ibn Abi Talib. Accept him as your Imam and follow him scrupulously. Be friend to his friends and a foe to his foes. HADITH 19: عن أبي ذر رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لعلي عليه السلام: من أطاعني فقد أطاع الله، ومن عصاني فقد عصى الله، ومن أطاعك فقد أطاعني، ومن عصاك فقد عصاني. Abu dhar narrts that the Prophet (s) told 'Ali ibn Abi Talib: Whoever obeys me, in fact obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, indeed disobeys Allah.

Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (S) said: From the progeny of myself, 'Ali, al-Hasan and al-Husain there shall be nine successive offspring who would be chaste and immaculate. HADITH 21: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أن الله أوحى إليه: أن عليا راية الهدى، و إمام أو ليائي، و نور من أطاعني. The Prophet (S) said: Allah revealed to me that 'Ali is the standard of Guidance and the Imam of my friends and the effulgence of my obedient devotees. HADITH 22: عن زيد بن أرقم قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ألا أدلكم على ما إن تمسكتم عليه لم تهلكوا؟ إن إمامكم ووليكم علي بن أبي طالب. فنا صحوه وصدقوه، فإن جبرئيل أمرني بذلك. Zayd ibn Arqam narrates that the Prophet (S) said: Would you people n0t wish to know about the thing that would save you frm destruction, if only you could submit to it? Know you then 'Ali ibn Abu Talib is your Imam and Leader. Obey him, follow his instructions and have faith in his words. I am so commanded by Gabriel to inform you. HADITH 23: بالإسناد في حديث قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت الإمام بعدي و الأمير، و أنت الصاحب بعدي و الوزير. وما لك في أمتي من نظير.

HADITH 24: عن ابن عباس: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: أني قد جعلت عليا أمير المؤمنين، فمن تآمر عليه لعنته، ومن خالفه عذبته، يا محمد! إني قد جعلت عليا إمام المسلمين، فمن تقدم عليه أخزيته، إن عليا سيد الوصيين. Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (s) said: Allahe revealed: I am designating 'Ali as the commander of the faithful believers. My curse is upon one who dominates over him and I shall send My scourge upon those who oppose him. O Muhammad, I have appointed him as the leader of all Muslims. If anyone attempts to overstep him, I shall humiliate him. 'Ali is the commander of all testamentary trustees. HADITH 25: عن عبد الله بن أسعد بن زرارة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أسرى بي ربي فأوحى إلي في علي بثلاث: إنه إمام المتقين، وسيد المؤمنين، وقائد المحجلين. Abdullah ibn Asad ibn Zurarah narrates that the Prophet (s) said: The Lord lifted me up into the skies and informed me three things about 'Ali, namely that he is the Imam of the pious, the commander of the believers and the foremost of the people with effulgent faces. HADITH 26: قال علي عليه السلام: يا رسول الله! من الفرقة النجية؟ فقال: المتمسكين بما أبت عليه و أصحابك. "Ali ('a) askd, "O Prophet! Which sect would find salvation? The Prophet (S) replied: Those who would adhere to you and your progeny. HADITH 27: قوله تعالى: "فمن أظلم ممن كذب على الله و كذب بالصدق إذ جاءه" عن إبن عباس رضي الله عنه قال: هو من رد قول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في علي عليه السلام. "About the verse: "Who is then more unjust than he who utters a lie against Allah and (he who) gives the lie to the truth". Ibn Abbas has quoted his father as saying: The unjust man is one who REJECTS THE HOLY PROPHET'S WORDS ABOUT ALI. HADITH 28: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إذا كان يوم القيامة، ينادون علي بن أبي طالب بسبعة أسماء: يا صديق، يا دال، يا عابد، يا هادي، يا مهدي، يا فتى، يا علي: مر أنت وشيعتك إلى الجنة بغير حساب. "The Prophet (s): On Judgement day, 'Ali wil be called by seven names and it wil be said to him: 'O truthful, O Proof, O Devoted worshipper, O Guide, O Guided, O Bravest, O 'Ali, you and your SHI'AH wil enter Paradise without being questioned. HADITH 29: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: تكون بين أمتي فرقة واختلاف، فيكون هذا وأصحابه على الحق، يعني علي.

HADITH 30: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: لمبارزة علي بن أبي طالب لعمرو بن عبد ود يوم الخندق أفضل من عمل أمتي إلى يوم القيامة. The Prophet (S) said: 'Ali's combat with 'Amr ibn 'Abd-wudd on the day of the Battle of the Dithch is more precious than all the efforts put in by the entire people of my community until Doomsday. HADITH 31: عن حذيفة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ضربة علي في يوم الخندق أفضل من أعمال أمتي إلى يوم القيامة. Hudayfah narrates that the Prophet (S) said: A single flash of 'Ali's sword (that killed 'Abd-Wudd) on the day of the Battle of the Dithch outweighs all the deeds of the entire community until Doomsday. HADITH 32: عن ابن عباس: أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله دفع الراية إلى علي عليه السلام يوم بدر وهو ابن عشرين سنة.

HADITH 35: بالإسناد، عن ثابت مولى آل أبي ذر، عن أم سلمة قالت: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: علي بن أبي طالب مع القرآن، والقرآن معه، لا يفترقان حتى يردا علي الحوض. A retainer of Abu dar's family narrates that Ummu salamah said that she heard the Prophet (S) say: 'Ali is with the Quran and the Quran is with 'Ali. These two shall not separate even as they meet me at the Spring in Paradise.

Abu dharr says that he heard the Prophet (S) say: 'Ali is always with the Truth and the truth is forever with him and on his lips. Truth follows wherever 'Ali goes. HADITH 37: عن عمار بن ياسر رحمة الله أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال لعلي: يا علي! ستقاتلك الفئة الباغية و أنت على الحق، فمن لم ينصرك يو مئذ فليس مني. Ammar ibn Yasir said that he heard the Prophet (S) say: 'O 'Ali, very soon wil you be put to fight with a group of tyrants, but you wil be on the right. On that day whoever forsakes you shall not be reckoned among my people. HADITH 38: عن ابن عباس: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: علي مع الحق والحق معه، وهو الإمام والخليفة من بعدي. من تمسك به فاز و نجا، ومن تخلف عنه ضل وغوى، يلي غسلي وتكفيني، ويقضي ديني، وأبو سبطي الحسن والحسين. Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (S) said: 'Ali is always with Truth and the Truth is with him always. After me, he is my testamentary trustee and executor. Successful is the one who attaches himself with 'Ali and whoever fails to be in touch with him shall be lost, misled and humiliated. He wil take the responsibility of bathing and clothing my dead body. He wil be the one who wil discharge my debts. He is the father of my two grandsons al-Hasan and al-Husain. HADITH 39: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: الحق مع علي وعلي مع الحق، يدور معه حيث ما دار. The Prophet (S) said: The Truth is with 'Ali and 'Ali is with the truth. Whichever way the Truth turns, it is accompanied by 'Ali. HADITH 40: بالإسناد، قال رسول الله صلى عليه وآله: أعلم أمتي بالسنة والقضاء بعدي علي بن أبي طالب.

Even if the veils are raised nothing would be added to my certitude in faith. HADITH 42: عن جابر قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي أكثر أصحاب الرسول علما.

  9. Bismillah Alrahman Alrahim Assalamu Alikom Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I have a question regarding a dream I recently had. Just before I go to details of the dream, I just wanted to make it clear that I don't usually have dreams about prophets and certainly not Imams of the Ahlulbait, although it would be an honour to meet such characters in my dreams. So just before I went to bed, I decided to do something I usual haven't done before to get closer to Allah (S.W.T.). I kept my head in sajdah, and kept reciting Shukran (Thanks) and 'afwan (you are welcome OR Thank you) to Allah alone for at least a couple of minutes, until I started perspiration on the Turbah. I also placed my cheek each time on the Turbad and repeated the same words. I felt lighter Alhamdoillah, and thereafter went to sleep after watching an islamic lecture. Naturally I wouldn't remember all of the dream, but the following is what is clear to me. I found myself in a masjid (in Najaf I assume as it will become clear further on, although I have never been there), and there were a couple of people in front of me making duaa in front of this beautiful room sheltered by thick glass. I tried to look at it, and there I see Imam Ali (A.S.) making sajda without any movements with his cheek (can't remember left or right cheek) exactly in the same position as I did, before I went to sleep. And I even remember the sajda I made before I went to sleep in the dream whilst looking at him. I was able to see his hands and face. He had a dark complexion, almost very brown. It surprised me for some reason. Furthermore he was wearing the kind of clothing people would wear in those times before going to battle, with the armour and protective gear etc. The next part is what I really didn't understand. Due to his sajda position, he didn't seem to move at all, which made it difficult for me to make out whether he was alive. This room Imam Ali (A.S.) was in had his stuff, a simple chair, things carved of wood and probably a bed as well. I took a few steps away to try to comprehend where this was, and I realised this was Najaf, and the masjid was the Imam Ali Masjid. So in essence his grave in the masjid, appeared to me as a room where he made sajda, and a few items were present with him. Please Brothers and Sisters, I am wondering what this means, and I would really appreciate it, if someone could explain, why I saw Imam Ali (A.S.) in the first place, in the same position I made the sajda with my cheek on the Turbah, I saw him do the exact same sajda? Am I just reading too much into it, or does it actually signify something? After all I did what I did before going to bed, because I wanted to become closer to Allah (S.W.T.).
  10. Imam Ali (as), Nahjul Balaghah, Sermon 215 So now, Allah, the Glorified, has, by placing me over your affairs,created my right over you, and you too have a right over me like mineover you. A right is very vast in description but very narrow in equitability of action. It does not accrue to any person unless it accrues against him also, and right does not accrue against a person unless it also accrues in his favour. If there is any right which is only in favour of a person with no (corresponding) right accruing against him it is solely for Allah, the Glorified, and not for His creatures by virtue of His might over His creatures and by virtue of the justice permeating all His decrees. Of course, He the Glorified, has created His right over creatures that they should worship Him, and has laid upon Himself (the obligation of) their reward equal to several times the recompense as a mark of His bounty and the generosity that He is capable of. Then, from His rights, He, the Glorified, created certain rights for certain people against others. He made them so as to equate with one another. Some of these rights produce other rights. Some rights are such that they do not accrue except with others. The greatest of these rights that Allah, the Glorified, has made obligatory is the right of the ruler over the ruled and the right of the ruled over the ruler. This is an obligation which Allah, the Glorified, has placed on each other. He has made it the basis of their (mutual) affection, and an honour for their religion. Consequently, the ruled cannot prosper unless the rulers are sound, while the rulers cannot be sound unless the ruled are steadfast. If the ruled fulfil the rights of the ruler and the ruler fulfils their rights, then right attains the position of honour among them, the ways of religion become established, signs of justice become fixed and the sunnah gains currency. In this way time will improve, the continuance of government will be expected, and the aims of the enemies will be frustrated. But if the ruled gain sway over the ruler, or the ruler oppresses the ruled, then difference crops up in every word, signs of oppression appear, mischief enters religion and the ways of the sunnah are forsaken. Then desires are acted upon, the commands (of religion) are discarded, diseases of the spirit become numerous and there is no hesitation in disregarding even great rights, nor in committing big wrongs. In such circumstances, the virtuous are humiliated while the vicious are honoured, and there are serious chastisements from Allah, the Glorified, onto the people. You should therefore counsel each other (for the fulfilment of your obligations) and co-operate with each other. However extremely eager a person may be to secure the pleasure of Allah, and however fully he strives for it, he cannot discharge (his obligation for) obedience to Allah, the Glorified, as is really due to Him, and it is an obligatory right of Allah over the people that they should advise each other to the best of their ability and co-operate with each other for the establishment of truth among them. No person, however great his position in the matter of truth, and however advanced his distinction in religion may be, is above co-operation in connection with the obligations placed on him by Allah. Again, no man, however small he may be regarded by others, and however humble he may appear before eyes, is too low to co-operate or to be afforded co-operation in this matter. If a man in his mind regards Allah's glory as being high and believes in his heart that Allah's position is sublime, then it is his right that on account of the greatness of these things he should regard all other things small. Among such persons he on whom Allah's bounty is great and Allah's favours are kind has a greater obligation, because Allah's bounty over any person does not increase without an increase in Allah's right over him. In the view of virtuous people, the worst position of rulers is that it may be thought about them that they love glory, and their affairs may be taken to be based on pride. I would really hate that it may occur to your mind that I love high praises or to hear eulogies. By the grace of Allah I am not like this. Even If I had loved to be mentioned like this, I would have given it up in submissiveness before Allah, the Glorified, rather than accept greatness and sublimity to which He is more entitled. Generally, people feel pleased at praise after good performances; but do not mention for me handsome praise for the obligations I have discharged towards Allah and towards you, because of (my) fear about those obligations which I have not discharged and for issuing injunctions which could not be avoided, and do not address me in the manner despots are addressed. Do not evade me as the people of passion are (to be) evaded, do not meet me with flattery and do not think that I shall take it ill if a true thing is said to me, because the person who feels disgusted when truth is said to him or a just matter is placed before him would find it more difficult to act upon them. Therefore, do not abstain from saying a truth or pointing out a matter of justice because I do not regard myself above erring (1). I do not escape erring in my actions but that Allah helps me (in avoiding errors) in matters in which He is more powerful than I. Certainly, I and you are slaves owned by Allah, other than Whom there is no Lord except Him. He owns our selves which we do not own. He took us from where we were towards what means prosperity to us. He altered our straying into guidance and gave us intelligence after blindness. =================== I'll let you digest that...
  11. (salam) I heard a saying by Imam Ali a.s where he says you should listen to what someone is saying not who is saying it. If anyone has the actual quote please share
  12. I'm looking for some lectures on Imam Ali and have tried to comb through this site for suggestions (coming up with very little). Would love if it people could post suggestions.
  13. Salaam, I am going to debate a sunni soon as he challenged me. Any tips to blow his socks of? Any quotes on Imam Ali. Any bad quotes on the 3. Any other help. With reference too please.
  14. I was listening to a lecture today and i heard something that i thought was very fishy, so to speak. Anyways it goes something like this. During the battle of Uhud when Imam ali was fighting against the non-believers, Prophet Mohammed said "Imam ali did a strike that was worth the worship of ALL of the humans and all of the jinns" During this battle is when Allah (swt) sent down his sword Zulfiqar through the angel gabriel. This is what the speaker said. Now i wondering if one strike by Imam Ali could be worth the worship of all the humans and all of the jinns. So does that mean, that strike was worth more than prophet Mohammed worship and everyone else's? I just got really confused. if someone could clear this up for me, i will really appreciate it. I was thinking that this hadith was a little bit fabricated, but Allah (swt) knows best. So i wanted to get other peoples opinion on it, maybe i am not looking at it in the wrong perspective. Thanks
  15. Dear reader..this article may contain some mistakes please help me to change them before its being published as a folder..many thanks The Holy Shrine of Imam Hussain AS Victory of Khaibar The importance of Khaibar Khaibar in Hebrew means the forest. It was a big city which had huge forests, farms, and many pushes of palm trees. The city included seven forests. It was three days walking away from Medina, on the direction of Syria.. Khaibar was a home of Jews, where they did not allow any others to live among them. The enmity between the supports of the prophet SAWA (Alansar) and Jews was growing and being clear on surface. Jews and their threat to the country of the prophet SAWA To recognize the danger of Jews to the Islamic call, and we should study the characters of Jews in general during that era. The folder will provide to you the main characters of Jews next: Jews always been a raciest nation during history and until now. They believe in their distinctiveness than other humans. Other people means nothing to them, they give them no values or consideration. They believe humans were created to serve Israelis only. The Talmud stated,” The Jew is said to possess so great a dignity that no one, not even an angel, can share equality with him. The Jew is a part of God, and he who violate a Jew as if he violated the dignity of Allah. The chosen nation are Jews only, and other nations are animals” Jews consider everyone who is not a Jews as an enemy. The Talmud not allowing Jews to have mercy on their enemies, and not allowing them to greet non-Jews unless they feel threatened. Jews are not allowed to give charity to non-Jews, and they are allowed to steal and cheat others. Also, gentiles should work for Jews, and they have to take the outputs for themselves. The Talmud, also allows them to violate the honor of other people, because they believe that non-Jew women are like animals, and Jews allowed to rape them. Jews are forbidden to save life of others…etc and other horrible things, we cannot count all of them. (1) Some of the Quran verses stated this arrogant ideas of Jews to other people, the Almighty said,” And the Jews and the Christians say: We are the sons of Allah and His beloved ones. Say: Why does He then chastise you for your faults? Nay, you are mortals from among those whom He has created, He forgives whom He pleases and chastises whom He pleases; and Allah's is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, and to Him is the eventual coming. Quran 5:18” We can state briefly the attitude of Jews to the country of the Greatest Prophet Mohammed SAWA as following: 1. helping and supporting the enemies of Muslim with everything they need even by spying on them, and other methods. 2. stirring up seditions between Muslims, especially between Aws and Khazraj clans, and between Muslims and infidels. 3. continuously conspiring to kill the Greatest Prophet SAWA, and turning people against him. 4. continuously rising riots, and disarraying situations, by telling lies, and intimated weak Muslims. All the attempts of Jews to violate Islam and Muslims were enormously failed, because of consciousness of the Islamic supreme leadership which was represented by the Greatest Messenger of Allah SAWA. The Greatest Messenger SAWA was patient front of their major contraventions, to avoid the threats of a cruel civil war in his new residence (Teba), until they reached their limits and their danger became greater. They became a real dangerous threaten the existence of Islam, especially that this sly and hateful enemy lives in the middle of the Islamic society. They knew all the weak slinks, and the power points of the Islamic society, and they were waiting the right chance to attack. Therefore, there should be a strategy to deal with this enemy, based on firmness an justice, rather than indulgent, leniency, and kindness. It was not for good to allow Jews to wreak havoc, breaking their promises and treaties, and attack Muslims whenever and however they desire, but there must be a decisive, firm, and just response towards any violation. Also, to face every intrigue before it’s too late, and repentance would not be handful. For these matter the decision was made by the Greatest Prophet SAWA to subdue Jews who were spread around Medina to reasoning and justice, and to deter by force anyone refuses to compliance with the law even if deterring them would lead to a bloody war. All the strategies of the Greatest Prophet SAWA against Jews aims to adjust law and stability, and to suppress arrogance of Jews in Medina. Some of them refused to comply with law and normalization with Muslims, and they desired confrontation, then the prophet SAWA confronted them. Others accepted to follow the laws, and complied with conditions of the Greatest Prophet SAWA and the prophet treated them kindly. The Jews of Khaibar were of the first type, who refused to be logical, and relied on their strong forts and knights. They believed that Allah will not support His Messenger and the faithful, and thought they will stay there forever. Crawling of the prophet SAWA to Khaibar and blockading it Messenger of Allah SAWA went to Khaibar after his return from Alhodaibeia battle, in the seventh year of Hijrah. He SAWA did give a permission to those who did not join him in Alhodaibeia to attend with him in Khaibar except for Jabir b. Abdullah Alansari, because they terrified Muslims. After the arrival of the Greatest Prophet SAWA to Khaibar, he blockaded the Jews inside their forts for over 20 days. During that time, Jews army of 10000 man used to get out their forts everyday to fight. The prophet SAWA conquered some of the forts peacefully, and some by force. Muslims were 1400 fighter with 200 horses. The conquer by The Commander of The Faithful During the time of the siege, the prophet SAWA sent some of the military brigades in purpose to conquer the forts. Alhakem Alnesabori, a Sunni scholar, narrated that the prophet SAWA sent both Abu Baker and Omar to conquer the forts but they failed. Alhakem said,” the prophet SAWA crawled to Khaibar, when he arrived there he sent Abu-baker with a group of people to their city or castle. They fought them but Abu-baker and his companions were defeated, and he returned back and frightened his companions, and they did the same (flee)… this tradition has truthful narrators following the terms of Bokhari and Musim but they did not state it”(2) Alhakem Also narrated, “the prophet SAWA gave the flag (the army leadership) to Omar on the day of Khaibar. He went and returned back scared and frightened his companions, and they were frightening him too… this is a truthful tradition following the terms of Muslim but he did not state it” (3) After those two defeats the prophet was worried about Islam and Muslims, because of the negative influence which they make to the spirits of fighters, and added extra power to the spirits of Jews. Add to all of that , the happiness of hypocrites, who were close to the Jews despite they were among the army of Muslims. Muslims started to humiliate the prophet SAWA and wanted to mutiny. Some of narrations of Ahlulbait AS stated this truth. Imam Abu Abdullah AL-Sadiq AS said,” there was not a harder day passed by the prophet than the day of Khaibar, because Arabs rebelled against him” Upon this, the prophet SAWA said his famous declaration, “Tomorrow I will award the Standard of the Islamic forces to a man who loves Allah(swt) and his Prophet SAWAand Allah(swt) and his Prophet SAWA love him. He is the one who attacks forcefully and does not run away from the battlefield and he will not return until Allah(swt) grants victory on his hand”. At night, everyone was waiting and wishing to be awarded this honor. The next day Prophet Mohammad SAWA called for Imam Ali AS. People said that Ali AS was suffering from a disease in his eyes but the Prophet SAWA insisted on him being called and when he arrived, the Prophet SAWA applied his saliva on the eyes of Imam Ali AS which cured him instantly and then he prayed to Allah(swt) and awarded him the standard of Islam. Ali AS said,” I will fight them until they become like us (Muslims)” the prophet SAWA said,” Advance deliberately and before joining battle summon them to embrace Islam, and tell them their duties. Verify if Allah should give religious guidance to a single individual of them through your instrumentally, it will be a more glorious conquest than if you should capture all the red camels.” (4) Ibn Al-Atheer completed the next part of the victory of Khaibar by stating,“ Then Ali AS started with the flag in his hand and, reaching under the fort of Qamus, planted the standard on a rock. A Rabbi who was watching from the fort asked, 'O standard-bearer! Who are you?' Ali AS replied, 'I am Ali son of Abu Talib.' The Rabbi called unto his people, 'By the Torah, you will be defeated! This man will not go back without winning the battle."' It is said that Marhab was the strongest, tallest, and the most fierce among the warriors of Khaibar and that none equaled him in his might. That day, he was armed twice over, wearing double armor with two swords dangling by his sides. He was also wearing two turbans with a helmet over and above. Marhab recited the following poem: “The Jews of Khyber know that I am Marhab. I dive into my weapons and I attack in a daring way.” Imam Ali AS said in reply: “I am one whose mother has named him Haider (young lion). I step into the battlefield with my sword like a ferocious lion, I am lion of jungle, solid, and hard” Taking the initiative, Marhab attacked Ali AS with his sword. But Ali AS avoided the blow and rendered with Dhul-Fiqar such a forceful blow on Marhab's head that it cut through the latter's helmet, the double turban, the head, till it reached the man's throat. Abu Rafi' the slave of Messenger of Allah SAWA is cited saying: "When the Prophet gave the flag to 'Ali and bade him fight the forces of Khaibar, we, too, accompanied him. When 'Ali was a short distance from the fort, fighting all along, a Jew struck a blow on his hand with such a force that the shield 'Ali was holding fell down. 'Ali at once pulled out a part of the gate of Khaibar, held it up as a shield and fought till Allah granted him a clear victory. Once the fighting was over, he threw it away. It was so heavy that eight men from among us could hardly turn it over from one side to the other." (5) Sheikh Al-Sadoq narrated that Abu Aldonia Mo’amar Almghrebi said,” I heard the commander of the faithful saying,’ In the battle of Khaibar, I received twenty five wounds, then I went to the prophet SAWA, when he saw my wounds, he cried and took tears and putted them on the wounds, then I was healed at that moment’” Events matched the victory of Khaibar This blissful battle accompanied with important events which should be highlighted, the folder will give state some of them next: 1. The Prophet SAWA confined the kinsmen share of booties to Bani Hashim (Clan) and Bani Abdul-Muttalib: Sheikh Altusi narrated that Jubair bin Mut’em said,” On the day of Khaibar, The Prophet SAWA confained the kinsmen share of booties to Bani Hashim and Abdul-Muttalib and excluded Bani Nufal and sons of Abd-Shams (Clan). Thus I and Othman rushed to the prophet SAWA. We said,” O Messenger of Allah, Bani Hashim clan has undeniable state which Allah Has Created inside them of yours to them, but What is special about our brothers Bani Abdul Muttalib? You gave them and left us, while we have the same kindred to you!” Messenger of Allah SAWA said,” I and Bani Abdul Muttalib did not seperat in Jahiliah (ignorance era, pre Islam) nor after Islam. In fact we and them are one!” then he kinked his fingers” (6) 2. On the same day, Ja'far ibn Abi Talib returned from Ethiopia. The Holy Prophet SAWA said: "I do not know on which blessing of Allah I should thank Him more: on the victory of Khaibar or on the return of Ja’far!" (7) 3. retuning the sun to the Commander of the Faithful AS: Asmaa said,” Ali was busy working on dividing the booties with Messenger of Allah on the day of Khaibar, until the sun set. Then Messenger of Allah said,” O Ali did you pray Asr?” he said,” No, O Messenger of Allah” Messenger of Allah did ablution and then set in the mosque and said two words or three, as if he was some Ethiopian language. Then the sun was returned as it was in afternoon. Therefore Ali did ablution and prayed Asr. After that Messenger of Allah said the same words which he said earlier, then the sun returned to set, and I heard a creak as if it was a saw working on a piece of wood, and stars appeared” (8) References: 1.

  16. Shia Muslims are often wrongly accused of stressing a whole lot about the divine guidance, the Imamat or the Wilayat. Perhaps the Shia Muslims are trying to tell you something that you are choosing to ignore, at your own peril and here's why To understand the Islamic concept of Imamat, first you will need to understand the purpose of creation. Everything that Allah (swt) has created in this universe is on the level of "ismat-e-sughra" meaning everything is sinless because everything is doing Allah's bidding , the complete obedience, the total robotic submission, the pure Adalah, the perfect balance - meaning doing exactly what Allah has intended. Among all the creations, you will find transgressors only among the 'free willed' Jinns and Humans. Incidentally the whole purpose of Jins and humans existence is to bring this complete Adalah in their full lives, all the while being bestowed with free will. The most critical purpose of Iamamt is to bring and keep 'free willed' Jinns and Humans on this perfect Adalah - the perfect tasleem of Allah. The whole reason of coming of Mahdi (as) is to bring this Adlaha and to prove it in action that Islam or total obedience can and does work for free willed creatures as well. Ever wonder why Allah was so proud when HE made humans and told to angels that this is my Khalifa on earth. Imamat (willaya) is THE most critical, almost pivotal part of the "system of Tawheed"; believing in this is which makes the righteous different from the non-righteous. Interestingly Ibless is more believer in Tawheed than you and I. But he doesn't believe in Nabuwat and Imamat. Why else was he stopping Ibrahim to pass the test of sacrifice. Becuase Ibrahim the prophet was supposed to be made Ibrahim the Imam after passing the test of sacrifice. Hence Allah made Muslims to hit Shaitan three times during Hajj, because these were the places where he tried to stop Ibrahim from being an Imam. Same goes for Christian and Jews. They believe in Tawheed and Nabuawat but not the last of the Prophets. Christians talking more about Jesus does not make them a better believer of Jesus. Muslims are better believers of Jesus than Christians are. It's part of basic Islam. Same goes for Sunnis, they believe in Tawheed and the last Nabuwat, but not the Imamat. Sunnis talking all day about Quran and Sunnah does not make them better believer than anybody. Becuase the Sunnah (hadith and why and when the Ayat of Quran were revealed) they got is distorted and comes from people who did not spend more than a few months with prophet throughout their lives. They all are LOST due to their lack of concept of divine guidance (Imamat, Wilayat, and in the physical absence of Imam, the wilayat of an Aadil Jurist). It's only the Shia who believe in the Tawheed as it should be and Nabuwat as it should be because they believe in Imamat as it should be, and by default Quran and Sunnah as it should be believed in.
  17. Islamic Thought is a renowned and well-established organisation promoting Islamic literature publications and organising seminars and faith events. We have the privilege of organising an International Conference on a distinguished Islamic seminal text, namely Nahjul Balagha by Imam Ali (d.661) in Peterborough. This text has played a central role in the study of Arabic literature, and has expounded countless other sciences which have emanated from this single source. There will be attendants and speakers across a wide range of backgrounds and faiths, and hopefully this event will also be successful on an inter-faith basis, which is much needed in the current climate. The conference will take place on Sunday 30th September between 10:30am and 6:00pm at Marriott Hotel, Peterborough. To register visit http://www.islamicthought.co.uk Limited places only
  18. Some sunni from school sent me a video today to prove that Shia's are kufar. He said that we must love Ibes (Satan) because he loves imam Ali In the video a shia shiek said that Ibes (Satan) said that "The best thing iv'e saved for you in the day of Judgement is my love for Amirul Mu'minin Ali" Is this true? explain please? P.S. here's the video, but be warned it's pretty much a video for anti Shia's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0SZuHi17xA

  20. I came across this sermon from Nahjul el Balagha and it made me wonder are we unfaithful believers?? In describing the characteristics of unfaithful believers Imam Ali AS. said: "He does not know the door of guidance to follow nor the door of misguidance to keep aloof therefrom. These are living dead bodies". Have we turned into living dead bodies?? It is getting harder and harder to tell wrong from right especially while living in such a corrupt society. What do you guys think of the quote above??
  21. (salam) This thread is only a friendly invitation to Farid. Generally, the Salafiyyah (and the Ahl al-Sunnah generally) rush to claim that they too love the Ahl al-Bayt (as). Farid, naturally, makes a similar claim. In fact, in recent days, I have seen him adding (as) after the names of the Ahl al-Bayt (as) to the exclusion of the other Sahābah. Though I find this very strange, coming from a Salafī, I deem it a very positive sign (not that I expect him to ever leave his religion). My concern, however, is that Farid still loves and follows the Nawāsib who hated, cursed and fought the Ahl al-Bayt (as). This is where the main problem lies. These Nāsibī Sahābah were hypocrites. In Islām, loving hypocrites is harām, and a horrible bid’ah, as Allāh has CURSED them: æóÚóÏó Çááøóåõ ÇáúãõäóÇÝöÞöíäó æóÇáúãõäóÇÝöÞóÇÊö æóÇáúßõÝøóÇÑó äóÇÑó Ìóåóäøóãó ÎóÇáöÏöíäó ÝöíåóÇ åöíó ÍóÓúÈõåõãú æóáóÚóäóåõãõ Çááøóåõ æóáóåõãú ÚóÐóÇÈñ ãõÞöíãñ Allāh has promised the hypocrites, men and women, and the disbelievers, the Fire of Hell, therein shall they abide forever. It will suffice them. Allāh has CURSED them and for them is the lasting torment. Qur’ān 9:68 Now, to make myself clearer, let me quote these words of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah: ÇáÑÇÈÚ Ãä Çááå ÞÏ ÇÎÈÑ Çäå ÓíÌÚá ááÐíä ÂãäæÇ æÚãáæÇ ÇáÕÇáÍÇÊ æÏÇ æåÐÇ æÚÏ ãäå ÕÇÏÞ æãÚáæã Ãä Çááå ÞÏ ÌÚá ááÕÍÇÈÉ ãæÏÉ Ýí ÞáÈ ßá ãÓáã áÇ ÓíãÇ ÇáÎáÝÇÁ ÑÖí Çááå Úäåã áóÇ ÓöíøóãóÇ ÃóÈõæ ÈóßúÑò æóÚõãóÑõº ÝóÅöäøó ÚóÇãøóÉó ÇáÕøóÍóÇÈóÉö æóÇáÊøóÇÈöÚöíäó ßóÇäõæÇ íóæóÏøõæäóåõãóÇ¡ æóßóÇäõæÇ ÎóíúÑó ÇáúÞõÑõæäö. æóáóãú íóßõäú ßóÐóáößó Úóáöíøñ¡ ÝóÅöäøó ßóËöíÑðÇ ãöäó ÇáÕøóÍóÇÈóÉö æóÇáÊøóÇÈöÚöíäó ßóÇäõæÇ íõÈúÛöÖõæäóåõ æóíóÓõÈøõæäóåõ æóíõÞóÇÊöáõæäóåõ. The fourth issue is that Allāh had informed him (the Prophet) that He would create love for those who believe and do righteous deeds. This promise from Him was true, and it is well-known that Allāh has created love for the Sahābah in the heart of every Muslim, especially the Khalīfahs, may Allāh be pleased with them, especially Abū Bakr and ‘Umar. This is because the generality of the Sahābah and Tābi’īn loved both of them (i.e. Abū Bakr and ‘Umar), and these were the best of generations. This was not the case for ‘Alī. This is because the MAJORITY of the Sahābah and Tābi’īn HATED, CURSED and FOUGHT him. Abū al-‘Abbās Ahmad b. ‘Abd al-Halīm b. Taymiyyah al-Harrānī, Minhāj al-Sunnah al-Nabawiyyah (Muasassat al-Qurtbah; 1st edition, 1406 H) [annotator: Dr. Muhammad Rashād Sālim], vol. 7, p. 137-138 NOTE: The word kathīr above may mean “a lot of” or “majority of”. It has been used in the second sense at several places in the Qur’ān, like 2:109, 4:114, 5:32, 5:49, 5:64, 5:66, 5:68, 5:71, 5:80, 7:179, 9:34, 10:92, 14:36, 38:24, 57:16, 57:26, and 57:27. It is equally apparent that Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah intends this second meaning in his words. If it does not mean “majority of”, then his purpose fails. He seeks to prove that the “believers” did not love Imām ‘Alī (as). If it was only the minority of them, and the majority loved him, then he has no point! Therefore, the only way his words could have meaning is when the majority of the Salaf (i.e. Sahābah and Tābi’īn) hated him, as he has argued. Nāsibism is apparent from these words of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah: 1. Allāh promised to create love for those who believe and do righteous deeds in the hearts of the Muslims. 2. Allāh has created love for the Sahābah in the heart of every Muslim, thus proving that they were righteous believers. 3. The Sahābah and Tābi’īn are the best of Muslims and they loved Abū Bakr and ‘Umar. This proves that Abū Bakr and ‘Umar were absolutely righteous believers. 4. However, these same Sahābah and Tābi’īn, the majority of them, hated, cursed and fought ‘Alī (as). In other words, Allāh did not create love for ‘Alī (as) in their hearts, meaning that he was not a believer or did not do good deeds! Particular attention should be paid to these points: 1. Allāh promised to create love in the hearts of the Muslims for those who believe and do righteous deeds. 2. The promise of Allāh is true. 3. But, He did not create love for ‘Alī (as) in the hearts of the bests of Muslims. 4. Therefore, ‘Alī (as) could not have been one of those who believed and did righteous deeds because Allāh always fulfills His Promises. 5. If ‘Alī (as) had been one of those who believed and did righteous deeds, then the Promise of Allāh would be false – an absolute impossibility. This is the outline of the ideology of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah! Farid, if this does not make him a Nāsibī, then nothing does! And, please tell: do you agree with this reasoning of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah? Now, here comes the question: what is your view of those Sahābah and Tābi’īn who hated, cursed and fought Imām ‘Alī (as)? The Messenger of Allāh (pbuh) called them all hypocrites. Imām Muslim records: قال علي : والذي فلق الحبة وبرأ النسمة إنه لعهد النبي الأمي صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى أن لا يحبني إلا مؤمن ولا يبغضني إلا منافق Narrated ‘Alī: By Him Who split up the seed and created something living, verily the al-Ummī Prophet (i.e. Muhammad), peace be upon him, gave me a covenant that NONE loves me except a believer and NONE hates me except a hypocrite. Abū al-Husayn Muslim b. al-Hajjāj al-Naysābūrī al- al-Qushayrī, Sahīh (Beirut: Dār Ihyā al-Turāth al-‘Arabī) [annotator: Muhammad Fuād ‘Abd al-Bāqī], vol. 1, p. 86, # 78 Do you agree that all those Nāsibī Sahābah and Tābi’īn were hypocrites? Do you agree with the Messenger of Allāh (pbuh)? Or, do you reject his words? Moreover, Shaykh al-Albānī records that the Prophet said: من أحب عليا فقد احبني ومن أحبني فقد أحب الله عز وجل ومن أبغض عليا فقد أبغضني ومن أبغضني فقد أبغض الله عز وجل. (صحيح) Whosoever loves ‘Alī verily loves me, and whosoever loves me verily loves Allāh the Almighty. WHOSOEVER hates ‘Alī verily hates me, and WHOSOEVER hates me verily hates Allāh the Almighty. (Sahīh) Muhammad Nāsir al-Dīn al-Albānī, al-Silsilah al-Ahādīth al-Sahīhah (Riyadh: Maktabah al-Ma’ārif), vol. 3, p. 288, # 1299 Farid, do you agree that those Nāsibī Sahābah hated Allāh and His Messenger ? If you do, this will testify in favour of your love of the Ahl al-Bayt . If you do not? Well, the implications are obvious. So, I invite you, Farid, and as I said, this is only a friendly invitation: I invite you to state your opinion, in this thread, about those Nāsibī Sahābah and Tābi’īn. Thank you.
