Happy birthday (Imam Hussain(as) Imam Sajad (as) & Hazrat Abbas (sa) Ali Akbar (sa)) https://youtu.be/G7bYwDM369k
Salamun alaykum. Congratulations on the birthday anniversary of Imam Muhammad al-Jawad on the 10th of Rajab to all the lovers of Ahl al-Bayt all over the world. Imam al-Jawad Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was born in last years of Imam al-Rida's Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã life. They have said that before his birth, Imam al-Rida Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã had no children and some enemies spread this rumor that Imam al-Rida Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã is not going to leave any lineage after himself and the chain of imamate will be broken. According to narrative sources, when Imam al-Jawad Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was born and they brought him to his father; Imam al-Rida Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã said, "This is a child, more blessed than him is not born for our followers." Also, a report narrated by Ibn Asbat and 'Ubbad b. Isma'il said, "We were at the presence of Imam al-Rida Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã that they brought Abu Ja'far (Imam al-Jawad (a)). We asked, 'Is this that blessed child?' Imam al-Rida Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã said, 'This is the child, no more blessed than him is ever born." A miracle: Upon the return of Imam al-Jawad Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã from Baghdad to Medina, a group of people accompanied Imam Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã out of Medina to see him off. By the time of Maghrib prayer, they arrived in a place where an old mosque was located. Imam Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã went to that mosque to say his prayer. There was a cedar tree in the yard of that mosque which had not yielded any fruits until that time. Imam Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã asked for some water and made Wudu beside that tree and then led a congregational prayer there and after the prayer made a Sajda of gratitude. He Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã then said goodbye to people and went away. The next day, the tree yielded so much fruit and people became so surprised of that. It is narrated from al-Shaykh al-Mufid that he has seen this tree many years later and has eaten from its fruits. (http://en.wikishia.net/view/Imam_Muhammad_b._'Ali_al-Jawad_(a)#A_Blessed_Child) A debate: Al-Ma’mun issued a proclamation and organized a grand meeting for the contest which resulted in a huge gathering of people from all parts of the kingdom. Apart from noble and high officials, there were as many as nine hundred chairs reserved for scholars and learned men only. The world wondered how a young child could contest with the veteran judge in religious laws (qadi'1-qudat) and the greatest scholar of Iraq. Imam Muhammad al-Jawad was seated beside al-Ma'mun on his throne face to face with Yahya ibn Aktham, who addressed the Imam thus: "Do you permit me to ask you a question?” "Ask me whatever you wish," said the Imam in the typical tone of his ancestors. Yahya then asked the Imam, "What is your verdict about a man who indulges in hunting while he is in the state of ihram." (In the code of religious law hunting is supposed to be forbidden for a pilgrim.) The Imam at once replied, "Your question is vague and misleading. You should have definitely mentioned whether he hunted within the jurisdiction of the Ka'bah or outside; whether he was literate or illiterate; whether he was a slave or a free citizen; whether he was a minor or a major; whether it was for the first time or he had done it previously; also whether, that victim was a bird or some other creature; whether the prey was small or big; whether he hunted in the day or at night; whether the hunter repented for his action or persisted in it; whether he hunted secretly or openly; whether the ihram was for umrah or for hajj. Unless all these points are explained no specific answer can be given to this question." Al-Qadi Yahya was staggered in listening to these words of the Imam and the entire gathering was dumbfounded. There was no limit to al-Ma'mun's pleasure. He expressed his sentiments of joy and admiration thus, "Bravo! Well done! O Abu Ja'far! (Ahsanta, ahsanta ya Aba Ja'far), your learning and attainments are beyond all praises." As al-Ma'mun wanted that the Imam's opponent be fully exposed, he said to the Imam, "You may also put some question to Yahya ibn Aktham." Then Yahya also reluctantly said to the Imam, "Yes, you may ask me some questions. If I know the answer, I will tell it; otherwise, I shall request you to give its answer." Thereupon, the Imam asked a question to which Yahya could not reply. Eventually, the Imam answered his question. Then al-Ma'mun addressed the audience thus: "Did I not say that the Imam comes of a family which has been chosen by Allah as the repository of knowledge and learning? Is there any one in the world who can match even the children of this family? " All of them shouted, "Undoubtedly there is no one parallel to Muhammad ibn `Ali al-Jawad." In the same assembly al-Ma'mun wedded his daughter Ummu'l-Fadl to the Imam and liberally distributed charity and gifts among his subjects as a mark of rejoicing. One year after his marriage the Imam returned to Medina from Baghdad with his wife and there he set about preaching the Commandments of Allah.

Suppose the birthday of any of your non-believer acquaintances or friends falls in the month of Muharram, would it be disrespectful to wish them ? I mean, I never celebrate my own birthday if it falls in muharram nor does anyone else in my family, but you know, if you know someone really well, and they don't know about muharram and they create this huge celebration atmosphere on your birthday and you don't even wish them on their's it becomes a bit...awkward.. I am not talking about taking part in celebrations, just a plain wish...by the way, her birthday is after chehlum... should I or should I not? I know, there is no compulsion, but what would you do?
