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.

  5. I'd like sensible answers, only asking from Shiites, no abuses, no disrespect, no fitnah-fasaad by anyone. Im a shia, but there are things i do not have full knowledge on; so i get confused or unsure. And when i am enquired of them, I do not have the perfect relevant answer to clear fellows' misunderstandings. So here they are, I'd be filled with gratitude if anyone could provide detailed, sensible, relevant answers to them. A hadith or some quranic verse to support would be just magnificent in some of them! 1- Why do we add hazrat Ali in the Kalima. La illaha Illalla Muhammad ur Rasoolallah Ali un Wali ullah, wasi ur rasoollallah? 2 - Why do we add Hazrat ali in Azaan. Im just abit confused and unsure on how to give a solid relevant answer to remove misunderstandings of people on thinking we believe in Hazrat ali as god (na'oozubillah) He is just our beloved Imam along with the Prophet of Allah as our helpers along with the other Imams, and we aren't Noseris. So i need a proper solid sensible and relevant answer! Thankyou!
  6. I opened the article, "Repentence in Islam", and this was mentioned there - Hazrat Ali was asked as to what is tawba, and he replied that tawba consists of six elements: to regret one’s past evil deeds; to carry out Divine duties (fard, wajib etc.) that were missed; to return the rights/properties of others that were usurped unjustly; to ask forgiveness of a person who has been wronged by him, physically or verbally; to make a firm resolve of avoiding the sin in future; and to employ oneself in Allah’s obedience, as he previously employed himself in Allah’s disobedienceDoes anyone know if this is mentioned in any historical document ? Is this mentioned in "Nahjul Balagha" ? JazakAllah.
  7. OBJECTIONS AGAINST HAZRAT FATEMAH ZAHRA (SA) AND THEIR REPLIES - OBJECTION NO 6 Objection 6: If Fatima (s) was attacked, why Bani Hashim did not defend her ExplanationWahabis, in order to deny the attack on the house of revelation, have raised objections like the one mentioned above: The Holy Prophet (s) was able to train thousands of loyal persons and those devoted to Islam; that they should be present on the path of Allah and defend it; and his Ahle Bayt (a) laid down their lives for its sake. In case we accept the attack on the house of Fatima ®, which the enemies of Islam consider to be true, the question arises that why Bani Hashim witnessed the daughter of the Messenger of Allah (s) being slapped, burning down of the door of the house, killing of the six month old Mohsin…but not once did they utter the least protest? All of them were sincere and loyal Muslims, who had ties of relationship with the Prophet and also had communal ties with him; what happened that they kept absolutely quiet and did not raise any objection? Rational replyWith attention to many similarities, which exist between the previous doubt and the present one, many replies can also be common, but despite that we will mention some instances.Firstly, the above statement is having more emotional and provoking words than reasoning and logical proofs, because reports have been recorded in Ahle Sunnat books with correct and proved chains of narrators and we mentioned them in the first part of this book, thus confirming attack on the house of Lady Fatima Zahra (s) and Amirul Momineen (a) and removing all kinds of doubts in this matter.Moreover, with reference to authentic Ahle Sunnat and Wahabi texts, it can be easily concluded that even if the people of Medina had wanted to defend, they did not have any power to take any such steps due to the circumstances that arose there. TO READ MORE ARTICLES ON HAZRAT FATEMAH ZAHRA (SA) CLICK HERE Role of Bani Aslam tribe in opposing Bani Hashim and strengthening of Abu Bakr’s regimeWhile Amirul Momineen (a) was busy with the last rites of the Messenger of Allah (s), Quraish and its leaders: Abu Bakr and Umar usurped his right and through the greed of characters like Abu Sufyan managed to win the loyalties of some people of Quraish. By this description it becomes clear that other tribes did not have the strength to confront Quraish.Abu Bakr and Umar had gathered in Medina numerous nomad tribes who had embraced Islam at the point of the sword and attracted the attention of new Muslims to their personal gains, as Amirul Momineen (a) in all the battles was the pivot of victory of Islam and they harbored deep animosity with him and the hypocrites took advantage of this same malice.Thus, taking advantage of the divisions in this group and also the nomadic desert tribes of the outskirts of Medina surrounded the house of Amirul Momineen (a) and wanted to reduce it to ashes.Tabari in his Tarikh, Mawardi Shafei in Hawiul Kabir and Abdul Wahab Nuwairi inNihayatul Arab say:The Aslam tribe had crowded Medina in such a way that lanes and by-lanes were overflowing with them so that allegiance of Abu Bakr may take place. Later, Umar used to say: When I saw the Aslam tribe, I became sure of victory.[1] Reason of absence of defense of Bani Hashim and Ansar according to the view of Amirul Momineen (a)Amirul Momineen (a) has mentioned the absence of defense by the companions (except Bani Hashim, companions and Ansar) in some of his sermons:O my Allah! I beseech Thee to take revenge on the Quraish and those who are assisting them, for they have cut asunder my kinship and overturned my cup and have joined together to contest a right to which I was entitled more than anyone else. They said to me: “If you get your right, it will be just, but if you are denied the right, that too will be just. Endure it with sadness or kill yourself in grief.” I looked around, but found no one to shield me, protect me or help me except the members of my family. I refrained from flinging them into death and therefore, closed my eyes despite the dust, kept swallowing saliva despite (the suffocation of) grief and endured pangs of anger, although it was more bitter than colocynth and more grievous than the bite of knives.[2]Ibne Abil Hadid says in Sharh Nahjul Balagha:Amirul Momineen (a), after the incident of Saqifah expressed anguish and demanded his right; he sought help and protested; because they did not come to him and pay allegiance to him. He said facing the tomb of the Messenger of Allah (s):ابْنَ أُمَّ إِنَّ الْقَوْمَ اسْتَضْعَفُونِي وَكَادُوا يَقْتُلُونَنِي“Son of my mother! surely the people reckoned me weak and had well-nigh slain me…” (Surah Araaf 7:150)[3] There are numerous other instances as well, but we have not quoted them all here for the sake of brevity. Polemical reply according to Wahabi sourcesOn the basis of sources acceptable to Wahabis, Bani Hashim and other Ansar, by not defending Lady Fatima (s), have in fact obeyed the directions of the Messenger of Allah (s), because Wahabis in order to prove the legality of the Caliphate of the Caliphs have narrated in their books that the Messenger of Allah (s) ordered his companions that they should, at all cost, obey the Caliphs after him; even if they do not enforce the practice of the Messenger of Allah (s), seize and usurp the property of people and instead of guiding the people, encourage them to follow the path of deviation.Muslim Nishapuri has, in the report of Huzaifah bin Yaman, mentioned that the Messenger of Allah (s) said:There will be leaders, who will not be led by my guidance and who will not adopt my ways? There will be among them men who will have the hearts of devils in the bodies of human beings. I said: What should I do, O Messenger of Allah, if I (happen) to live in that time? He replied: You will listen to the Amir and carry out his orders; even if your back is flogged and your wealth is snatched, you should listen and obey.[4] On the basis of this, because of their sources, Wahabis are compelled to accept that the absence of defense of Bani Hashim and other companions was in accordance to the command of the Messenger of Allah (s) and the common good of the Islamic society.

  8. Objection 5: If Fatima (s) was attacked why Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend her? CONTINUED FROM PART 1 ...... Polemical replies to the doubt A. Why Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not put up defense?One who has raised the above doubt and said: Why Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not stage an uprising? Or how his modesty permitted him to watch such a treatment being meted out to his wife; should reply to the same objection regarding Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã:The wife of Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was a disbeliever, the community of Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was sinful; the disbelievers forced themselves into the house of Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã and saw handsome youths there. They expressed their satantic desires with regard to those youths. Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã said: Fear Allah; if you refrain from this vile deed, I will marry my daughters to you.Now, a number of questions arise at this point, which the doubt raisers should reply:Why Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was not ashamed of the evil behavior of his disbelieving community, why he did not take to arms and attack them? On the contrary, he suggested to them that he was ready to give his daughters in marriage to them. Can – God forbid – Prophet Lut Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã be blamed from shamelessness?Pay attention to the translation of the verse of Quran in this regard: وَلَمَّا جَاءتْ رُسُلُنَا لُوطًا سِيءَ بِهِمْ وَضَاقَ بِهِمْ ذَرْعًا وَقَالَ هَـذَا يَوْمٌ عَصِيبٌ {77} وَجَاءهُ قَوْمُهُ يُهْرَعُونَ إِلَيْهِ وَمِن قَبْلُ كَانُواْ يَعْمَلُونَ السَّيِّئَاتِ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ هَـؤُلاء بَنَاتِي هُنَّ أَطْهَرُ لَكُمْ فَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ…“And when Our messengers came to Lut, he was grieved for them, and he lacked strength to protect them, and said: This is a hard day. And his people came to him, (as if) rushed on towards him, and already they did evil deeds. He said: O my people! these are my daughters- they are purer for you, so guard against (the punishment of) Allah…” (Surah Hud 77-78) TO READ MORE ARTICLES ON HAZRAT FATEMAH ZAHRA (SA) CLICK HERE B. Why the Holy Prophet (s) did not confront during the thirteen years of his stay in Mecca?If not staging an uprising by Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã is an occasion for some questions, why with regard to not staging an uprising by the Holy Prophet (s) inMecca for thirteen years is not having any objection?Did the Messenger of Allah (s) not witness tortures and unlimited oppressions on Muslims in Mecca? Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã, by this same argument did not show any reaction that the Messenger of Allah (s) at the time of killing of Sumayyah, mother of Ammar Yasir at the hands of the idolaters and his confrontation with them did not show any reaction.Ibne Hajar Asqalani has written in Isabah:Sumayyah binte Khabbat…mother of Ammar Yasir is the seventh to embrace Islam. Abu Jahl harassed her and stabbed her in the lower abdomen with a spear till she achieved martyrdom. She was the first female martyr in Islam and since she had embraced Islam and did not give it up, the family of Bani Mughira tortured and harassed her till she was martyred. The Messenger of Allah (s) witnessed the scene of torture of Ammar and his parents in Mecca and said: O family of Yasir, be patient, as Paradise is promised to you.[1]Since the Messenger of Allah (s) was seeing that idolaters like Abu Jahl were harassing Muslim ladies, he did not display any reaction to it and also ordered them to be absolute patient in all this.Was the Messenger of Allah (s) not the most modest and valiant person of the world? Thus, why he did not defend the Muslim ladies? Why he did not take up the sword to strike off the head of Abu Jahl?Whatever replies the Wahabis give with regard to the absence of staging uprising by the Holy Prophet (s), we will give the same reply to the topic of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã not staging an uprising. C. Why Umar did not defend his wife?Umme Jamil was well known for her wantonness and was the target of accusations by one and all; and that Mughira bin Shoba had committed fornication with her was a well known historical fact.Among the instances about which the Wahabi objection makers should reply is that:On the basis of Wahabis claims, Umme Kulthum, daughter of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was the wife of Umar. If we believe that this was nothing more than fiction, and the fact is something else; and that except casting numerous doubts on its fabricators it will achieve nothing; that if Allah wills we would also reply to the continuation of this objection – but in case we accept the supposition, the same objection is applicable to why Umar did not defend his wife, Umme Kulthum, which the Wahabis should reply?The matter was that Mughira bin Shoba committed fornication with Umme Jamil and three persons testified as eye-witnesses and if the fourth testimony had been obtained, Mughira would have become eligible for penalty of fornication. During the journey of Hajj, Umar asked Mughira about Umme Jamil, who at that time was his partner in fornication: Are you familiar with her? Mughira with all impudence compared Umme Jamil to Umme Kulthum. And said: Yes, she is Umme Kulthum, your wife. In fact Mughira was extremely insulting to the wife of Umar in this reply and he made allegation of fornication on Umme Kulthum. However Umar did not display any shame at this and he did not show any reaction and defense.Ibne Khallikan in Wafayatul Ayan and Abul Faraj Isfahani in Aghani have written that:During Hajj, Umme Jamil (about whom three persons testified that Mughira has committed fornication with her and because the testimony of the fourth person could not be obtained, she was saved from the penalty of fornication) was in the company of Umar and Mughira was also present in Mecca at that time. Umar asked Mughira: Do you know who this woman is? Mughira replied: Yes, this is Umme Kulthum, the daughter of Ali. Umar said: Are you pretending to be ignorant? By Allah, I think that Abu Bakra didn’t lie about you and whenever I see you, I fear that a stone will drop on my head from the sky.[2]It was when Mughira bin Shoba was an old friend and an official of Umar and was under his control at that time, but despite that Umar did not argue with him at all.Now, with numerous contradictions, which exist on this occasion, whatever justification Wahabis offer, we will give the same reply to the absence of defense of Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã for his wife. D. Why Uthman did not defend his wife?Wahabis should also reply to this subject:When the companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) attacked the house of Uthman and cut off the fingers of his wife, Uthman did not defend his wife.Whatever justification Wahabis offer here, we will give the same reply to this matter.Tabari has written in his history:Sawdan bin Humran came forward to attack Uthman, Naila binte Farafisa (Uthman’s wife) threw herself upon him. Sawdan took the sword and cut off her fingers and then hit at the teeth of Uthman’s wife and said: What a great bodyguard he is having! Then he hit Uthman and killed him.[3]Ibne Athir has mentioned the same point in his Al-Kamil fit Tarikh[4] and Ibne Kathir Damishqi Wahabi in Al-Bidaya wan Nihaya.[5]Why Uthman did not defend his wife when he was a man, having modesty and he should have defended his wife? Thus, why did he not show any reaction when he witnessed companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) insulting his wife and confronting her? E. If Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend, he also did not participate in the battles of CaliphsAmirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã was the most valiant person of his time, there is no doubt that he was so brave and daring that his name deprived Arab stalwarts of their sleep; so much so that Umar bin Khattab said:By Allah, if the sword of Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã had not been there, the foundation of Islam would not have become stable.[6]So much so that when all the unfaithful companions of the Messenger of Allah (s) during the Battle of Uhad and Hunain deserted the Prophet and fled from the battlefield, Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã circled the Messenger of Allah (s) like a moth going around the flame, and he defended him, but why Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not participate in any of the battles of the Caliphs?One, who during the time of the Messenger of Allah (s) had actively participated in all the battles of Muslims against infidels, Jews…and was at the forefront bearing the standard of Islam before all the stalwarts and crushed one enemy warrior after another, why he was not present in any of the battles during the time of Caliphs?Had he lost his valor, or he did not regard fighting at the side of the Caliphs as Jihad? Or the Caliphs opposed the practice of the Messenger of Allah (s) did not choose to take his help? F. Supposing Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend, does it imply that he was in favor of oppression?With attention to the references and sources of the first part of the book in proving oppression and martyrdom of Lady Zahra (s) and also rational and polemical replies, which were given to reply to this objection, and supposing we accept that Amirul Momineen Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã did not defend his wife, does this statement imply that he overlooked oppression of others and was satisfied with it?

  9. The majority of Sunni scholars and historians have declared in their books and research works that when Hazrat Ali [a] was selected by people as Caliph and he agreed to it then the first chapter of dispute over Caliphate of Hazrat Ali [a] was finally resolved. What I wish here is a debate upon this topic? Was it really sufficient? Was the Caliphate of Hazrat Ali [a] enough to resolve the dispute that occurred just as the Prophet closed his eyes? If yes then what are the key reasons to say that yes the Caliphate of Hazrat Ali [a] was enough to resolve that dispute. If no then what are the key reasons to say that no the Caliphate of Hazrat Ali [a] was not enough to resolve the dispute.
  10. THE FINAL WORDS OF HAZRAT ALI (as) “I was perplexed and bewildered; my patience was over; it was as if my soul was exiting my body; I left immediately, and did not realize how I got to Daar al-Hukumah (governor’s seat). Can I see him one more time? He is my sole existence. If, God forbid, something happens….I cannot even think about it…” A huge crowd had gathered outside Dar al-Hukumah asking for punishment of “Ibn Muljam”. The door opened and Imam Hassan (PBUH) came out. Everyone kept quiet. He said,” O people! My father has ordered you to return to your homes(1), and asked me to leave his killer until my father passes away; if he passes away, the sentence of his killer is clear, and if he remains alive, he will decide about the man. So go back; May Allah (SWT) have mercy on you”. The people went back, but Asbagh ibn Nubatah, who was a companion of Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH), could not leave. The voice of crying and lamentation raised from the house, so Asbagh started crying as well. Imam Hassan (PBUH) got out again and said,” O Asbagh! Did you not hear my words which were my father’s order?” Asbagh says, ”I said to him, ‘I did. But now that I see my master in this condition, I want to visit him once more and hear a narration from him”. Imam Hassan (PBUH) went inside, and soon after, he came out and said,” Come in”. So I entered to my master, Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH). The Imam (pbuh) had covered his head with a yellow cloth, but his face was more yellow than the cloth. He was bending his legs and extending them continuously due to the pain of the strike on his head and the effect the poison that had spread all over his body. I threw myself over him, kissed him, and started crying. He said to me, ”O Asbagh! Don’t cry. I swear to Allah (SWT) that I will go to Paradise.” I said, ”May I be sacrificed for you! I swear to Allah (SWT) that I know you will go to Paradise. My crying is because I will be departed from you”. Then I said to him,” O Amir al-Mu’minin! May I be sacrificed for you! Could you narrate one of the Hadiths you have heard from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP)”(2)? He replied, ”Sit; I do not think you will hear a Hadith from me anymore”. Then he continued by saying,” Know, O Asbagh, that I went to visit the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) as you have come to visit me. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) said to me,” O Abal Hassan! Call upon the people; go on top of my platform and stand one step lower than where I used to stand, and tell the people, ‘Beware! Whoever hurts his parents is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT). Beware! Whoever escapes from his parents is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT). Beware! Whoever fails to pay someone who has worked for him is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT).’ O Asbagh! I did exactly as my love had told me. So someone at the end of the mosque got up and said, ‘O Abal Hassan! You said three sentences, but they were brief. So explain them for us’. I did not respond to him until I went to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) and repeated what the man had said to him”. At this point, Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH) took my hand and said, ”O Asbagh! Open your hands!” I opened my hands. Then he took one of my fingers and said, “O Asbagh! the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) took one of my fingers exactly as I am holding yours, and said, ‘O Abal Hassan! You and I are the two fathers of this nation. May he who hurts us be away from the mercy of Allah (SWT)! You and I are the two guardians of this nation. May he who escapes from us be away from the mercy of Allah (SWT)! You and I are the two persons responsible for serving this nation. Whoever does not pay our reward is away from the mercy of Allah (SWT).” These were the last statements Asbagh heard from the lips of Amir al-Mu’minin (PBUH). After that, he did not hear anything from his kind father until the seed of orphanhood was spread among the nation of Islam, and the father of the nation after the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HP) joined him in the Hereafter… Indeed our kind father went to his Lord as such… Footnotes: 1. Amaali of Shaykh Mufid, p. 351. 2. Amaali of Shaykh Mufid, p. 352. 3. This Hadith has been narrated with similar wordings in Amaali of Shaykh Mufid (pp. 351-353), which was used in the above mentioned passage.
  11. On the day that Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) passed away.... Osaid b. Safwaan, the companion of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) narrates, "On the day that Ameerul Momineen ( a.s .) passed away there was intense wailing and grief among the people (of Kufa). It was just like the day when the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) passed away. Then a man came wailing and reciting 'Inna lillahe wa inna ilaihe rajeoon' and saying, 'Today the caliphate of the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) has been severed' until he reached the house of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.). Then he said, 'May Allah have mercy on you, O Abul Hasan. You were the foremost among the people in Islam, the most sincere among them in faith, the most intense among them in certainty, the most fearful among them with relation to Allah, the Almighty, the greatest in suffering difficulties, the closest in proximity to the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.), the most trustworthy among the companions, the most superior among them in merits, the most noble among them in precedence, the most elevated among them in ranks, the most proximate to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.), the most similar among them (to the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.)) in ethics, character and action, the most gracious among them in grades, the most noble among them in front of Allah. May Allah grant you a great reward concerning (your efforts towards) Islam, the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.) and the Muslims. Your remained firm when the companions showed feebleness and were evident when they were receding. Your rose (against the enemy) when they displayed laziness. You stayed your ground in the path of the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w .) while others were sluggish and restrained. You were the rightful caliph (of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.)). You remained unaffected and unflappable concerning the irreligiousness of the hypocrites, the wrath of the infidels, the disgust of the envious and the hostility of the transgressors. You rose when others were gripped by lethargy, you spoke (against evil) when others were struck dumb. You tread the path of Allah's Light when others had their feet stuck to the earth. If they had followed you, they would have been guided. You were the most soft spoken among the people, the most distinguished among them (in stature), the most sparing among them in words, the most appropriate among them in speech, the most prolific among them in opinion, the bravest in spirit, the firmest in certainty, the best in actions and the most cognizant in affairs. By Allah! You were, for religion, a leader; first when the people scattered and then when they turned lazy and idle. You were, for the believers, a merciful father. Since they were your family, you lifted the burden off their shoulders that they found too oppressive and burdensome to carry. You protected what they squandered, you safeguarded them when they were left isolated, when they united you supported them, when they were blissful you accepted them and when they offended you, you remained patient. You attained your objective, while they wandered away from it. Through you, they attained what they had not even imagined. You were, for the infidels, an evident chastisement and for the believers a downpour of abundance and mercy. By Allah! You were bestowed with bounties and you gained precedence and acquired the merits. Your proofs were never exhausted, your heart never deviated, your vision never weakened, you never cowed down due to fear and you never betrayed the trust. You were like the mountain that powerful winds could not move nor violent storms could unsettle. You were like the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said – weak in your body but firm in Allah's affair, humble in person, esteemed in front of Allah, the Almighty, illustrious in the land, majestic in front of the believers. There was not even a trace of defect in you, nor did a blemish ever cast its shadow on you nor did greed and craving ever contaminate your person. The poor and humiliated were strong and powerful in front you, until you reinstated their rights. The powerful and strong were poor and humiliated in front you until you seized the unlawful property from them. The proximate and distant in relation were equal in front of you. Your conduct was truthful, honesty and compassionate. Your speech manifested your wisdom and decisiveness. Your affair displayed your forbearance and integrity. Your opinion was nothing but knowledge and determination. You uprooted (apostasy), cleared the path of its evil, transformed its difficulty into ease and in this way extinguished its fire. The religion was set right due to you and Islam and the believers went from strength to strength because of you. You have advanced far beyond. After you, we are gripped with an intense weariness. Excruciating is the grief over you. Your demise is a momentous matter in the skies. Anguish over you has shattered the people. Then 'to Allah do we belong and towards Him shall we return.' We are satisfied with Allah's Decree and we submit to Allah's Affair. Then by Allah, the believers shall never be afflicted with a sorrow like your sorrow. You were, for the believers, a sheltering cave and for the disbelievers an acute chastisement. Then may Allah unite you with His Prophet (s.a.w.) and may He not withhold your reward from us and may He not deviate us after you.'" Then the people became silent until the man finished his discourse. They cried along with the companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a .). Then they tried to seek the man but could not find him. (That man was none other than Hazrat Khizr a.s.) (Reference: Amaali-e-Sadooq (r.a.) – Majlis 42, tradition 11) Condolences to our Master - Imam-e-Asr (a.t.f.s.) - the sheltering cave for the believers and an acute chastisement for the disbelievers. May Allah hasten his reappearance.

Çááøåõãø ÇáúÚóäú ÞóÊóáóÉó ÃóãöíÑö ÇáúãõÄúãöäöíäó Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã When Abd al-Rahman bin Muljam (l.a.) wounded Imam Ali (a) who was then offering the morning prayers in the Mosque of Kufa, Imam Ali (a) advised Imam Hasan (a) and Imam Husayn (a) in the following words. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I advise you to fear Allah, do not go after this vicious world though it may try to entice you, do not seek it though it may seek you and do not grieve over and pine for things which this world refuses you. Let the eternal Reward and Blessings of Allah be the prompting factors for all that you say and do. Be an enemy of tyrants and oppressors and be a friend and helper of those who are oppressed and tyrannized. To you, to my other children, to my relatives and to everyone whom my writing reaches, I advise to fear Allah and to be pious, to have fair and honest dealings with one another and improve mutual relations because I have heard your grandfather, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) saying, "To remove mutual enmity, ill-feeling and hatred is better than recommended prayers and fasting". Fear Allah when the question of helpless orphans arises. You should never let them starve. So long as you are there to guard and protect them they should not be ruined or lost. Fear Allah in respect of the neighbours. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had always advised, cautioned and reminded us of this responsibility, so much so that we often thought that the Prophet of Allah (s.a.w.a.) would allow them a share from our inheritance. Fear Allah in respect of the Holy Qur'an, lest others should excel and surpass you in following its tenets and in acting according to its orders. Fear Allah in respect of the prayers because prayers are pillars of your religion. Fear Allah in the matter of His Holy House (Kaa'ba). Let it not be deserted because if it is deserted, you (the Muslims) will not be spared. Fear Allah in the matter of Jihad, struggle in His Cause with your property, lives and tongues. Develop mutual liking, friendship and love and help one another. Take care that you do not spurn each other and sever mutual relations. Do not give up bidding for good and abstaining from evil lest the vicious gain ascendancy over you. And then if you pray, your prayers will not be heard by Allah. Then he said: O sons of Abdul Muttalib! Certainly I do not wish to see you plunging harshly into the blood of Muslims shouting: ‘Amirul Momineen (a.s.) has been killed.’ Beware do not kill on account me except my killer. Wait till I die by his (Ibne Muljam (l.a.)) stroke. Then strike him one stroke for his stroke and do not dismember the limbs of the man for I have heard the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) saying: ‘Avoid cutting limbs even though it may be a rabid dog.’
  13. On the day that Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) passed away.... Osaid b. Safwaan, the companion of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) narrates, "On the day that Ameerul Momineen ( a.s .) passed away there was intense wailing and grief among the people (of Kufa). It was just like the day when the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) passed away. Then a man came wailing and reciting 'Inna lillahe wa inna ilaihe rajeoon' and saying, 'Today the caliphate of the Holy Prophet ( s.a.w.a.) has been severed' until he reached the house of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.).
