  1. Hi guys, I saw this chat group and it was about Mahdi and number 313. What's the connection? I'm curious because one of the important battles in Babi and Baha'i history was the battle of fort tabarsi, where 313 Babis were fighting against thousands of shahs army, and they won.

    72 or 313

    Salaam. Hypothetically, if you had the option of either being one of the 72 of Imam Hussain (as) or one of the 313 of Imam Mahdi (as), which option would you choose and why?

    Salam Aleikum. Since our ultimate goal in this life is to establish truth and eradicate injustice, we should all long for the reappearance of our Savior Imam Al-Mahdi ÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ. But the Imam does not appear unless his truthful 313 companions are ready... What are the significant attributes of these 313 and how could we be a part of them. Are these 313 chosen by Allah or does every one of us have the potential to be among them? If anyone could refer some narrations from the Ahlulbayt(as) concerning this i would be grateful. Jazakallah khair jaz'a.

    Imam Mahdi (A.s) In A Dream

    IMAM MEHDI (A.S) in a Dream. Salam my dear shia brothers and sisters. Im not claiming to be anything but a slave of Allah and a follower of Ahlulbayt. Please dont be rude and ignorant, but down to earth individuals whom helps each other :). Date: 23rd November 2013 Time: 6am – 7am Morning after Fajr Namaz Place: Home Story: Let’s start with some background story then to the actual dream; few days back I was in class teaching people about Islam e.g. the Ahlulbayt way. I also revealed to my mates some references from their books (Sunni books), (Bible) and the holy Qur’an about the Ahlulbayt – specially based on Imam Ali (A.S) and his leadership e.g. why he was chosen caliph by Allah. Nevertheless, I taught my mates not to smoke or commit any sins as its haram. They treat me with respect and one stated that I should become an Imam (teacher or Mullah). i told my mates how everything about Ahlulbayt getting rubbed of their books and that Imam Mehdi (A.S) will come with Prophet Isa (A.S) and make the world one religion ‘ISLAM’ and make in every country, groups shouting La Illaha Illallah. When I came home yesterday 22nd November 2013 I got ready for prayer and prayed. Prayed the night as well, and off to bed I went. Woke up in the morning, thinking to myself ah I’m so tried, I should pray tomorrow. However, I remembered it’s the Shaytan making me think these awful thoughts so I got up quick and took a ghosul as it was only 30 min before Fajr azaan and I needed to pray Namaz eh Shab 11 rekat (recommend in the Quran and Imams). When I prayed Namaz a Shab I felt relieved and waited for Fajr Namaz. Eventually, when I finished my Fajr Namaz, I also prayed 2 rekat for I’m Hussein and 2 for Imam Mehdi (A.S)’s zahoor. I felt victorious and light when I overcame Shaytan and accomplished prayers. Went back to bed - It was 6:05; recited Ayatul Qursi 3 times and Nad Eh Ali 1 time and slept on my right hand side. My dream started by me being emotional sad as I had an argument with my mother. I think I left the house and dreams change events as everyone knows. I was going to a mosque an underground kind, where it started by stairs and in to the actual mosque I think I was wearing full white. I met my cousin there, he was wearing some red flowers around his neck, I think it was to resemble something, he asked “have you got one”. I replied “I have love for Allah and Ahlulbayt in my heart” meaning I don’t need one. I entered the mosque, I remember people in white or black clothes - hearing someone upfront announcing that doing something and you get an award. I sat down next to my cousin but leaving space as I was leaning on the wall. Lights were off and a poetic person was reciting Noha. I started thinking why not cry for multiple things; killings of Imams and my sins. I started to cry and cry while my hand placed on my face. We all stood up to do Matam and I was once again leaning on the wall but standing this time, crying and crying, although everyone had stopped crying. I remember someone saying “He looks different” to my cousin, (I think meaning from the family of Imams maybe) because my uncle once said I look different, like from the family of Ahlulbayt. I kept crying and thinking to myself “Why don’t you come O Imam Mehdi (A.S), I want to meet you”. Everyone was walking up the stairs and out of the mosque, I did so to. I was still crying; as I approached half way of the stairs, I see a man in old brown clothes walking down the stairs past me to the mosque although everyone was getting out. I said Imam Mehdi, my cousin said don’t let him go, so I grabbed his hand (the way people shake hands) he held my hand the way Mullahs do. He put his other hand finger to his mouth and said shhh. I didn’t say a word. I looked at his face which was half covered by the brown cloth. He looked young around my age but at the same time he felt old enough and had the mentality of a very wise man. His arm was very long, around 2 and a half of mine. However, he felt short to me, maybe because his was on fewer steps lower than me. He face looked very familiar, I can’t really explain in words to be honest. Someone I’ve possibly seen in the mosque or Jalous before. I let go of his hand as he wasn’t for sure letting go because he had the personality of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as Imam Ali (A.S) Said: When the Prophet shakes someone’s hand. I never see him let go first. I got out and my cousin said did you record the events in the mosque e.g. the people reciting Noha. I said no and got up from my dream. This dream was really weird, not all of it but the Imams physical characteristics e.g. very long hand and face due to the fact that I couldn’t take it in properly. I may not have been Imam Mehdi (A.S) but why would I randomly shout Imam Mehdi (A.S)? Why would he wear old brown clothes? Why would he shhh me? He probably didn’t want everyone to know that he’s there or something. Has anyone got a shia scholar's email, who can interpret dreams? I love you all, YA ALI MADAD a.s W.Salam
  11. Salamun Alaikum, I came across a very stunning hadith, and I would like to share it and receive your reflection.

(4) Abu Sulayman Ahmad bin Hawtha al-Bahili narrated from Abu Iss~haq Ibraheem bin Iss~haq an-Nahawandi from Abdullah bin Hammad al-Ansari from someone that one of the companions had come to Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (s) and said to him: “May I die for you! By Allah, I love you and love whoever loves you. O my master, how many your Shia are!” Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (s) said: “Would you please mention them?” The man said: “They are too many.” He said: “Could you count them?” The man said: “They are much more than to be counted.” Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (s) said: “If the number becomes three hundred and a little more then what you want will happen. Our Shia are those, whose voice dose not pass beyond their ears, nor does their zeal go beyond their body, nor do they praise us openly, nor quarrel with anyone because of us, nor sit with anyone criticizing us, nor talk with anyone abusing us, nor love whoever hates us and do not hate whoever loves us.” ÝÞáÊ: ÝßíÝ ÃÕäÚ ÈåÐå ÇáÔíÚÉ ÇáãÎÊáÝÉ ÇáÐíä íÞæáæä Åäåã íÊÔíÚæä¿ ÝÞÇá: Ýíåã ÇáÊãííÒ æÝíåã ÇáÊãÍíÕ æÝíåã ÇáÊÈÏíá¡ íÃÊí Úáíåã Óäæä ÊÝäíåã¡ æÓíÝ íÞÊáåã¡ æÇÎÊáÇÝñ íÈÏÏåã.

The man said: “Then how do we deal with these different groups, who pretend that they are Shia?” He said: “They will be tried, purified and distinguished. Years come that will perish them, a sword that will kill them and disagreement that will scatter them. Our real Shia are those, who do not growl like a dog, do not covet like a crow and do not ask people for alms even if they die of hunger.” The man said: “May I die for you! Where can I find such a kind of people?” He said: “You can find them in the far sides of the world. They are those, whose lives are so simple, whose abodes move from place to another, who if are seen, will not be known, if absent, will not be missed, if become ill, will not be visited, if propose to a woman, will not be married and if die, their funerals will not be attended. It is they, who divide their monies among them, who visit each other in their graves and who never disagree even if their countries are different.”[1] The same was narrated by Muhammad bin Hammam from Hameed bin Ziyad al-Kufi from al-Hasan bin Muhammad bin Suma’a from Ahmad bin al-Hasan al-Maythami from Ali bin Mansoor from Ibraheem bin Muhzim al-Asadi from his father from Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (s) but with an addition: æÅäú ÑÃæÇ ãÄãäÇð ÃßÑãæå¡ æÅä ÑÃæÇ ãäÇÝÞÇð åÌÑæå¡ æÚäÏ ÇáãæÊ áÇ íÌÒÚæä¡ æÝí ÞÈæÑåã íÊÒÇæÑæä… “If they see a believer, they will honor him and if they see a hypocrite, they will leave him aside. They do not worry when about to die and they visit each other in their graves…”[2] [1] Biharul Anwar, vol.68 p.164, Mo’jam Ahadeeth al-Imam al-Mahdi, vol.4 p.10. [2] Ibid.

    Role Of Women

    (bismillah) (salam) I was wondering if someone could tell me what would be the role of women when Imam al-Mahdi (atf) reappears? Will they be a part of the 313? How many of them?
  13. Regardless of whether a movement is at a communal, social, or national level, it eventually comes to a crossroad at which either it will move forward to see the changes it seeks, or come to an abrupt end. Islam began as a grassroots movement that saw the persecution and death of its followers. The pagan system was looking for any chance to destroy Islam, which was a severe threat to their establishment. The Meccans deeply regretted the fact that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) was able to escape Mecca to Medina without being silenced, and now they were looking for any opportunity to destroy Islam. At the wells of Badr on the 17th of Ramadan, 2 AH, the Meccans tried to charge the Muslims and break their ranks. The Meccans tried multiple times but to no avail, as Hamza and Imam Ali (peace be upon them) kept the Muslim ranks firm. After multiple retreats by the Meccans and the death of Abu Jahl, the Meccans were unable to re-group, and the Battle of Badr had become a rout. The Muslims who were outmanned 3 to 1 and had an unbelievable disadvantage in the armor and weaponry category still managed to pull off a miraculous victory. There are four lessons we have to take from the Muslim victory in the Battle of Badr. Firstly, the Muslims were completely outnumbered in every category, but had Allah on their side. This clearly shows that when a group of sincere believers struggle in the way of Allah with pure intentions, regardless of how bleak a situation may look, Allah will always make the believers victorious. Within the past thirty years in the Middle East, certain movements went against all odds and became successful because they put their trust in Allah. This is a lesson for us today when we are trying to make a difference in our communities: change may seem impossible, but with the correct vision in the way of Allah and with a desire to attain Allah's nearness, anything can be accomplished. Number two, it is very obvious that the West is trying to assassinate the character of the Holy Prophet by accusing him of being "bloodthirsty" and a man who spread Islam by the sword. Ironically enough, the actions of the Muslims and the Holy Prophet proceeding up to the Battle of Badr and after prove these accusations wrong. The Holy Prophet fought his first battle thirteen years after he first proclaimed Islam. Within those thirteen years, the Muslims were tortured, socially and economically boycotted, and publicly humiliated. Yet after all of this, the Muslims never retaliated back. Even after the Battle of Badr, there were dozens of Meccan prisoners captured. If the Holy Prophet was truly a bloodthirsty and vengeful man of war, he would have had all the prisoners of war killed or severely punished. But instead, the prisoners were allowed to go free if they could teach ten Muslim children to read. Are these the actions of a man of terror or the actions of a man who was sent as a "Mercy to Creation"? Thirdly, the Muslims only had 313 warriors defending Islam, compared to the 1000 pagans. Today, the number 313 is widely discussed as we fervently anticipate the near advent of the Twelfth Imam (may Allah hasten his reappearance). The number 313 represents the number of core believers that the Holy Imam will have on his side to bring about the global justice that is promised. There is a concept behind the number 313 that needs to be grasped. The Holy Imam only needs a core group of 313 believers in order to reappear. There are over 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, and this has not yet happened. We must ask ourselves: are we preparing for the Reappearance? Are we willing to sacrifice for the cause of Imam Mahdi? Are we willing to obey all commands from Imam Mahdi without any hesitation? Lastly, it is of the utmost importance to study Islamic history, which is something Muslims tend to neglect. By studying Islamic history, we as Shias can bring an academic approach to our brothers in faith about who the true leaders after the Holy Prophet really were and which ones consistently disobeyed the commands of the Holy Prophet after his death. After all, certain alleged leaders after the Holy Prophet exposed themselves via their own actions, and these actions are mentioned in books on both sides. And in addition to the valuable lessons we will learn, we must always keep in mind that those who neglect history are doomed to repeat it. http://www.islamicin...-from-badr.html
