  1. #BREAKING Trump talked to several leaders about setting up safe zones in Syria: White House #BREAKING US military options on Syria in response to Idlib attack could include grounding Syrian aircraft: official to Reuters Thursday 06/04/2017
  2. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Name: Muhammad Title: al-Mahdi, al-Qaim, al-Hujjah, Sahib Al-Zaman, Baqiyutullah Father's name: Al-Hassan Al-Askari - 11th Imam (pbuhim) Mother's name: Nargis - Daughter of the king of Rome. Birth: In Sammara, on Friday the 15th of Shaaban 255 A.H. Imam Al-Mahdi will unite the East and the West. His father Imam Hassan Al-Askari is from the East. And His mother Nargis, also known as Malika, was from the west. It is narrated she was the daughter of the king of Rome Yashu'a Ibn Qaisar (Caeser). His mother didn't live close to the Islamic world, but one night she had a dream that the Prophet of Islam came to her and told her to marry one of His children. They told her that she will have a son that will rule the world and fill it with justice. Following this dream, she woke up with the desire to meet these people whom she later realised were the Muslims being fought. She did what she could and was captured by the Islamic army, her desire all along. She was later bought as a merchant along with other prisoners, but was amazed at the good treatment she received. She didn't know why this man treated her with such kindness, as if she was his next of kin. She was later introduced to the same man, as Imam Hassan, the light from her dream with whom she lived happily ever after. With their love, the Prince of our time was born. Imam Al-Mahdi, is still living and will appear before the end of time.. Imam Ali narrates that Prophet Muhammad (pbuthem both) said: Even if only a day remains for Qiyamah to come, yet Allah will surely send a man from my family who will fill this world with such justice and fairness, just as it initially was filled with oppression. Prophet Muhammad said: The promised Mahdi will be among my progeny, among the descendants of Fatima. (Abu Dawud, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 207; Ibn Majah, Sahih, Vol. 2, P. 519) Rasullah said: A group of my Ummah will fight for the truth until near the day of judgment when Jesus, the son of Marry, will descend, and the leader of them will ask him to lead the prayer, but Jesus declines, saying: "No, Verily, among you Allah has made leaders for others and He has bestowed his bounty upon them. (Sahih Muslim) No one can fully understand the reason for the occultation of Imam Mahdi (ajtf) but some explainations bought forward are: 1. The benefit of being tested and purified, this is a test for the beleiver. 2. The benefit of being relieved from having to pay allegiance to unjust rulers. 3. The benefit of being immune from murder. The minor occultation was needed to prepare his people of the major occultaion to come. Ultimately the reasons of the occultation are based on divine wisdom. Minor Occultaton: 8th Rabi 'ul-awwal 260 A.H. Major Occultation: 10 Shawwal 329 AH. May Allah (swt) hasten his reappearance and may our lives be His (pbuhim) sacrifice. Illahi Amen.
  3. Selam! I stumbled upon a new novel by some indie author on Instagram with a Muslim protagonist. It sounded interesting and there was (is currently) a special promo so the ebook costed only $1! So I bought it with zero expectations and actually read it in one go! It was well written, bits of poetry, really suspenseful with a good story. The book offered several spiritual insights for myself, like why do I worship Allah? What's actual reason? What drives me? Where is the love? And it also motivated me to do something with my life ! There are some books with Muslim characters or Muslim settings, but the main character in this novel, his "super power" is being a believer with truthful spiritual dreams! And his name is Ali! And he fights for Imam Mahdi! I'm not aware of any other author who have mixed technology and religion in this way. Highly recommended! The realistic spiritualism reminded of Paulo Coelho in some ways, minus the sci-fi/tech of course. I'd love to discuss it if anyone read it!

  5. I want to recite it. My Arabic is not great so it needs to be clearly written. Everywhere I can find it is with too much calligraphy or in a video but I ideally want to print it and recite it off a piece of paper that I will keep next to where I pray. Thanks in advance!
  6. Assalamu a'laikum, brothers and sisters! I want to know if someone can bring me a Hadith from the Prophet(s.a.(عليه السلام)) talking about Imam Mahdi comming then going into a period of ocultation. Please don’t get me wrong, I'm Shia, I believe in Imam Mahdi, that he came and one they will be back to bring justice to this world. I know about hadiths wich talk about Imam Mahdi, I just want to know if there is a Hadith from the Prophet(s.a.(عليه السلام)) that talks specificly about the Imam and his ocultation. Salam!
  7. Dear All, I am searching for a book on Imam e zamana (عليه السلام). I am a complete novice to the subject unfortunately. Kindly help me with it. JazakaAllah
  8. Salam I am reading about Imamate and it is very interesting intellectually but here are some questions I have: If we have a divinely appointed imam to guide us on the way of the Prophet (s.a.w.) why only stop after 12? Why not continue with one imam after another till Imam Mahdi? I would like you to answer this without referring to the Sunni hadith books about the hadith of 12 caliphs or similar narrations in your own books but only using intellect and logic. See, I am almost convinced that the idea of a divinely appointed ruler for the Muslim Ummah, who is protected from sin is a good one and it makes sense to my intellect but since we do not know when the Day of Judgement will be and when the world will end, shouldn't there be a continuous line of imams, one after the other, until the last one (whom we can call Imam Mahdi (a.s.) ? I am a Sunni Muslim and a member of a Sufi tariqah but have recently been reading about Shi'ism as well and this question came to me.

  10. Sallam Alikum, http://www.discoveringislam.org/shia_mahdi.htm I don't know where to start here but they make "The Shia Mahdi" as such a horrible person. What are those sources they're referring to?
  11. as salaam alakim!!!!!!!!! Is This a sign of Imam Mahdi? If the US and Iran do go to war or have a conflict, will it Mean the rise of the Imam(عليه السلام) if our time? or the sufany rises?
  12. The following link provides the best answer to Non Shia people on Ghaibat of Imam Mahdi AS. The video is in Urdu and it was presented on Media channel in response to the questions of well known Sunni scholar: Wasalam
  13. Salam alaykum. I was Sunni until a few months ago when I started to explore Shia Islam initially out of curiousity until I was really convinced that it is the true path of Islam. One thing that is not clear to me is what is the exact nature of occultation? Specifically is the Imam's physical body on Earth in hiding somewhere or is his body not on Earth like Isa alayhis salam? If the latter, is he also in the higher samawat like Isa alayhis salam or somewhere else? Thanks in advance!
  14. as salaam alakim!!! I know this sounds like a dumb question, but all the prophacies are mostly gonna happen in the Middle East and Europe(Rome aka Rum) What about the West and Asian countries, will Imam(as) fight tyrants there?
  15. First some Introductory points: The Bab was a man who claimed he is the gate to Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s), then claimed he is the Mahdi Himself, then he is a new Prophet and then he claimed he is God. This happened about 150 years ago in Persia. He appointed a man called Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal as his successor and executor of his will. Mirza Yahya was the leader of the Babis until his half-brother Baha'u'llah (creator of the Baha'i cult) succeeded in sending him to the sidelines. Mirza Yahaya is greatly hated by Baha’is and regarded as one their greatest enemies. To put it in a nutshell, this is how he is viewed by Baha'is: “Mírzá Yaḥyá is scarcely spoken of, but when he is mentioned he is called Satan.” (E.G. Browne, Materials for the Study of the Babi Religion, p. 117)​What most Baha’is don’t know or will not tell you is that according to the Bab, Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal, was God. This is how the Bab’s will to Subh-i Azal starts: “Name of Azal, testify that there is no God but I, the dearest beloved. Then testify that there is no God but you, the victorious and permanent.”​First the Bab states very explicitly that he is God (not a messenger from God or a manifestation of God, but God himself), then he tells Subh-i Azal that he too is God and should testify to this (seriously what the hell)! These statements being illogical and meaningless aside, according to the Bab Mirza Yahya Subh-i Azal is God and according to Baha’ullah he is the Satan and devil! Why should anyone takes the claims of Baha'u'llah seriously when he claims he is the one that the Bab had prophesied about when he doesn't have faith in the Bab's God and calls him Satan?And why should we take the Bab's claims seriously who claims he is God then Passes his Godhood to Mirza Yahya who is then deprived of his Godhood by Baha'u'llah and changed into satan?!Why do these people claim they are monotheists while the core of their beliefs is polytheism and belief in multiple human Gods (Baha'u'llah also claims he is God)?Where is the logic in any of these claims?

  16. Salam . . . i want to know from shias aspects that what is the reasons of Imam Mahdi's Major Occultation ??
  17. Salamu Alaikum brothers and Sisters, Ever since I saw a small clip in a video on youtube of Ayatollah Sayed Muhammad Sadiq Sadr speaking about how America (or the Zionists) is looking for Imam Mahdi (ajtfs), I've wanted to find the whole khutba. I've recently come across 45 Friday Khutbas on youtube. The audio isn't that great but someone put together and translated 45 and and some are dubbed in English. I'm going to watch each one until I find that whole khutba on Imam Mahdi (ajtfs). Except for this video, he wears his coffin in all khutbas because he knew Saddam lanatullah alayhi was going to kill him soon. In Sermon 4 and 5 he talks about Byzantium or Rome being part of the killers of Imam Hussain alayhi salam and taking part in distorting Islam. I love hearing all marji's from the past and present speak. I thought I'd share this if anyone was interested in seeing all his Friday Sermons. Also, if anyone knows of some new good speakers online this Ramadan please let me know. Brahim
  18. Salaam Alaikum brothers and sisters! "But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty-- a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates." Jeremiah 46:10 Thoughts on this verse? Do you guys think it is in reference to Imam Mahdi (as).
  19. Salamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah. Recently, a profile which I am sure everyone is aware of, that was defending YH and HA presented me with a set of Hadith against revolution before the Qaim: Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 310, Hadeeth number 483: Omar ibn Handhala says, al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam said, “There are five signs before the rise of the Hujja ‘alaihissalam, the heavenly call, Sufyani, the sinking of the earth, the murder of the pure soul and Yamani. I asked, may I be your ransom, If anyone from your House should make an uprise (khuruj: uprise or revolt to topple the government), should we make an uprise along with him? He said, No. If you are a Shi’a, then remember, it is prohibited until you hear the Saiha and that Yamani has appeared, to make an uprise. That is unless the MI6 and CIA had paid Omar ibn Handhala to narrate this hadeeth. Al-Kafi vol 8, pg 264 Hadeeth number: 382 Our master Syed al-Sajjideen ‘alaihissalam said, “By Allah, no one makes an uprise from us before the Rise of the Awaited One, salamullahi ‘alaih, except that he will be like a nestling (baby bird), who flew off his nest before its wings grew, and kids pick him and play with him. Ibid # 383: Says al-Imam al-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, “O’ Sadir, stay at your home and be a rug of your house (as motionless and passive as a rug of your house). Don’t move and remain absolutely silent so long the earth and the sky are silent (sinking of the earth has not occurred and the heavenly call/saiha has not been heard). When you hear that Sufyani has risen, come to us, even if you have to walk. Al-Kafi vol 5, pg 22 Hadeeth Number 2: Says the Imam ‘alaihissalam, “Make pilgrimage to this House [the Ka’ba]. Does not each one of you like to be [safe] at his house, have his family prosper through his generosity, and wait for OUR RULE. If he should live to see Our Rule, he will be like the ones who were with the Rasool of Allah salla Allahu ‘alaihi wa Aalihi wassalam at the battle of Badr. If he should die, while waiting for Our Rule, he will be like the close companions of the Awaited One ‘alaihissalam who will be with him at his tent”… Al-ibid pg 23, Hadeeth number 3: Bashir al-Dahhan: I said to al-Imam as-Sadiq ‘alaihissalam, I saw you in my dream and I said to you in my dream, Fighting under the banner of someone other than the Infallible Imam, appointed by Allah, is haram like eating rotten dead animal, drinking blood, and pork. And you said in my dream, “It is indeed so”. Al-Imam al-Sadiq alaihissalam replied [in wakefulness], “It is indeed so, it is indeed so”. I can myself comment that some Hadith before Imam al-Sadiq about the Qaim refer to Imam al-Sadiq themselve as Shaykh Hamza Sodagar pointed out. As for the rest of the Hadith's I contacted the office of Grand Ayatullah Nasr Makarem Shirazi (H) on the issue and received the following answer: Answer: We also believe that any uprising in the name of Imam Mahdi before His reappearance is condemned to failure and belongs to the Tyrant. But if an uprising is for the sake of Allah and in order to pave the ground for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS) and to implement the goals of Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS), then it is approved and is consistent with jurisprudential certainties and the rulings of Enjoining good and forbidding wrong. According to the certain documents "Islam without government," is a disfigured Islam which is free of content, and in fact is an Islam without Islam. Again, a group resist opposing the issue of Islamic government. The source of this opposition is, in fact, two things including mental aspect, and the aspect of narrations. The mental aspect is that, they have a bitter memory of the governments and they believe that in the current situation no one is able to form a divine government and implement Islamic justice. But in terms of narrative, they follow some narrations in this field which are not restricted to what you mentioned. The concept of narrations is that "every flag, which is set up as a government before the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (AS), is either a flag of delusions or condemned to failure." Pay attention to the interpretations of these traditions and they are as follows: 1. It means the uprisings which are carried out without the permission of infallible Imams (AS) or religious authorities or the general deputies of the Imams at the time of occultation. 2. It means the uprisings which are carried out to invite oneself and not to invite to the goals of the infallible Imams (peace be upon them), as mentioned in many narrations. The uprisings meant here is restricted to the ones that there was no preparation for such uprisings. So, the Imams (AS) talked in this way to prevent these premature or immature uprisings. Wishing you all the success Ayatollah Makarim Shirazi’s Office / Istifta’at section Allahuma Sali Ala Muhammad Wa Alee Muhammad.

    AOA, I have heard from XYZ that a mujtahid has direct or indirect connection with Imam Mehdi (A.S)? (They can ask a question or a masla or consult from them) Is this true??
  21. Assalamu Alaykum brothers and Sisters These are number of Imam Mahdi singed letters that he sent to his ambassadors. Brother Qa'im translated them and allowed me to post them here, may Allah reward him greatly. ـ حدثنا المظفر بن جعفر بن المظفر العلوي رضي الله عنه قال : حدثني جعفر ابن محمد بن مسعود وحيدر بن محمد بن السمرقندي قالا : حدثنا أبو النضر محمد بن مسعود قال : حدثا آدم بن محمد البلخي قال : حدثنا علي بن الحسن الدقاق ، وإبراهيم ابن محمد قالا : سمعنا علي بن عاصم الكوفي يقول : خرج في توقيعات صاحب الزمان : « ملعون ملعون من سماني في محفل من الناس » ( 4 ) . 1 – al Muzhaffar b. Ja`far b. al Muzhaffar al `Alawiرضي الله عنه (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated to us: Ja`far b. Muhammad b. Mas`ud and Haidar b. Muhammad b. al Samarqandi narrated to me. They said: Abu ‘l Nadr Muhammad b. Mas`ud narrated to us. He said: Adam b. Muhammad al Balkhi narrated to us. He said: `Ali b. al Hasan al Daqqaq and Ibrahim b. Muhammad narrated to us. They said: We heard `Ali b. `Aasim al Kufi say: It was elucidated in the tauqee`aat (epistles) of Sahib al Zaman: Cursed, cursed is the one who names me in a gathering of people!* 2 ـ حدثنا أبي ؛ ومحمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنهما قالا : حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري قال : حدثني محمد بن صالح الهمداني قال : كتبت إلى صاحب الزمان عليه السلام : إن أهل بيتي يؤذونني ويقرعونني ( 1 ) بالحديث الذي روي عن أبائك عليهم السلام أنهم قالوا : قوامنا وخدامنا شرار خلق الله ، فكتب عليه السلام : « ويحكم أما تقرؤون ما قال عزوجل : « وجعلنا بينهم وبين القرى التي باركنا فيها قرى ظاهرة » ( 2 ) ونحن والله القرى التي بارك الله فيها وأنتم القرى الظاهرة » . قال عبد الله بن جعفر : وحدثنا بهذا الحديث علي بن محمد الكليني ، عن محمد ابن صالح ، عن صاحب الزمان عليه السلام . 2 – My father and Muhammad b. al Hasan b. Ahmad b. al Walid رضي الله عنهما (may Allah be pleased with them) narrated to us. They said: `Abdullah b. Ja`far al Himyari narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. Salih al Hamadani narrated to me. He said: I wrote to Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام: My household causes me trouble and rebuke me (scold me (correction) and in other versions: يفزعونني – scare me) with the hadith narrated from your fathers عليهم السلام that they said: Our caretakers and our servants are the worst of Allah’s creation. So he عليه السلام wrote: And He commands that you should recite what He, عزوجل says: 'And We made between them and the towns which We had blessed manifest (prominent) towns’ [surat al Saba’:18]. And by Allah! We are the towns Allah has blessed therein and you are the manifest (prominent) towns. `Abdullah b. Ja`far said: And this hadith was narrated to us by `Ali b. Muhammad al Kulayni from Muhammad b. Salih from Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام. 3 ـ حدثنا محمد بن إبراهيم بن إسحاق الطالقاني رضي الله عنه قال : سمعت أبا علي محمد بن همام يقول : سمعت محمد بن عثمان العمري قدس الله روحه يقول : خرج توقيع بخط أعرفه « من سماني في مجمع من الناس باسمي فعليه لعنة الله » قال أبو علي محمد بن همام : وكتبت أسأله عن الفرج متى يكون ؟ فخرج إلي « كذب الوقاتون » . 3 – Muhammad b. Ibrahim b. Ishaq al Taliqani رضي الله عنه narrated to us. He said: I heard Abu `Ali Muhammad b. Hammam say: I heard Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri (may Allah sanctify his spirit) say: A tauqee` in a handwriting which I recognised emerged: Whoever names me in a gathering of people by my name, then upon him is the curse of Allah. Abu `Ali Muhammad b. Hammam said: And I wrote asking him about the relief (reappearance) – when is it? So it was elucidated for me: Those who appoint a time (i.e. for the reappearance) have lied. حدثنا محمد بن محمد بن عصام الكليني رضي الله عنه قال : حدثنا محمد بن يعقوب الكليني ، عن إسحاق بن يعقوب ( 3 ) قال : سألت محمد بن عثمان العمري رضي الله عنه أن يوصل لي كتابا قد سألت فيه عن مسائل أشكلت علي فورد [ ت في ] التوقيع بخط مولانا صاحب الزمان عليه السلام : أما سألت عنه أرشدك الله وثبتك من أمر المنكرين لي من أهل بيتنا وبني عمنا ، فاعلم أنه ليس بين الله عزوجل وبين أحد قرابة ، ومن أنكرني فليس مني وسبيله سبيل ابن نوح عليه السلام . أما سبيل عمي جعفر وولده فسبيل إخوة يوسف عليه السلام . أما الفقاع فشربه حرام ، ولا بأس بالشلماب ( 1 ) ، وأما أموالكم فلا نقبلها إلا لتطهروا ، فمن شاء فليصل ومن شاء فليقطع فما آتاني الله خير مما آتاكم . وأما ظهور الفرج فإنه إلى الله تعالى ذكره ، وكذب الوقاتون . وأما قول من زعم أن الحسين عليه السلام لم يقتل فكفر وتكذيب وضلال . وأما الحوادث الواقعة فارجعوا فيها إلى رواة حديثنا ( 2 ) فانهم حجتي عليكم وأنا حجة الله عليهم . وأما محمد بن عثمان العمري ـ رضي الله عنه وعن أبيه من قبل ـ فإنه ثقتي وكتابه كتابي . وأما محمد بن علي بن مهزيار الاهوازي فسيصلح الله له قلبه ويزيل عنه شكه . وأما ما وصلتنا به فلا قبول عندنا إلا لما طاب وطهر ، وثمن المغنية حرام ( 4 ) . وأما محمد بن شاذان بن نعيم فهو رجل من شيعتنا أهل البيت . وأما أبو الخطاب محمد بن أبي زينب الاجدع فملعون وأصحابه ملعونون فلا تجالس أهل مقالتهم فإني منهم بريء وآبائي عليهم السلام منهم براء . وأما المتلبسون بأموالنا فمن استحل منها شيئا فأكله فأنما يأكل النيران . وأما الخمس فقد ابيح لشيعتنا وجعلوا منه في حل إلى وقت ظهور أمرنا لتطيب ولادتهم ولا تخبث . وأما ندامة قوم قد شكوا في دين الله عزوجل على ما وصلونا به فقد أقلنا من استقال ، ولا حاجة في صلة الشاكين . وأما علة ما وقع من الغيبة فإن الله عزوجل يقول : « يا أيها الذين آمنوا لا تسئلوا عن أشياء إن تبد لكم تسؤكم » ( 2 ) إنه لم يكن لاحد من آبائي عليهم السلام إلا وقد وقعت في عنقه بيعة لطاغية زمانه ، وإني أخرج حين أخرج ، ولا بيعة لاحد من الطواغيت في عنقي . وأما وجه الانتفاع بي في غيبتي فكالانتفاع بالشمس إذا غيبتها عن الابصار السحاب ، وإني لامان لاهل الارض كما أن النجوم أمان لاهل السماء ، فأغلقوا باب السؤال عما لا يعنيكم ، ولا تتكلفوا علم ما قد كفيتم ، وأكثروا الدعاء بتعجيل الفرج ، فإن ذلك فرجكم والسلام عليك يا إسحاق بن يعقوب وعلى بن اتبع الهدى . 4 – Muhammad b. Muhammad b. `Isaam al Kulayni رضي الله عنه narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. Ya`qub al Kulayni narrated to us from Ishaq b. Ya`qub al Kulayni from Ishaq b. Ya`qub (his status is unknown; I have neither found him in the rijal nor in the books except for having come across him in this chapter), who said: I asked Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri رضي الله عنه that a letter be delivered to me wherein I could ask regarding the problems that I find difficult. So a tauqee` in the handwriting of our master, Sahib al Zaman عليه السلام, appeared: As to what you have asked of him, may Allah guide you aright and make you steadfast against the affair (order?) of those who deny me from our household and the children of our uncle. Then know that there is no relationship between Allah عزوجل and anyone. And whoever denies me, he is not from me and his course is the course of the son of Nuh عليه السلام. As to the course of my uncle, Ja`far and his son, then it is that of the brothers of Yusuf عليه السلام. As to the fuqaa` (barley water used as medication), its drinking is haram (forbidden) but there is no harm in the shallmaab (turnip water/syrup)*. And as to your wealth, we do not accept it save that you may be purified. So whoever wishes, he should send (it to us) and whoever wishes, may sever (it from us). And whatever Allah gives me is better than what He gives you. *Drink made from darnel and it is ryegrass which (grows) on the land. Abu Hanifah said: Darnel is a humble, elongated, red-coloured grain, that stands erect appearing in constitution like the liquorice of wheat and it is not intoxicating but it passes through the food violently (i.e. it’s a purgative). And he said: The plant of darnel is often on the surface and it spreads out on the ground and its leaf is like the leaf of the Khilaf al Balkhi, excessively green and glossy (moist). He said: The people eat its leaves when they are fresh and it is delectable; there is no bitterness in it and its seed is much more bitter than aloe (the crown). And our teacher, al Sha`rani, in the margin of al Wasa’il, volume 17, page 291, said: Verily the drink of shalmaab is made from darnel and it is a grain resembling barley and it has anaesthetic/narcotic properties similar to henbane (a narcotic/sedative) and coincidentally, it (also) happens to be in wheat (i.e. grows amid the wheat crop as a weed) and bread prepared from it leaves one dazed and dizzy and sleepy. And most of its vegetation is in the arable land of wheat and he suspects we have made it haram due to its narcotic properties and the resemblance/confusion of narcotics with intoxicants among the populace. And as to the appearance of relief, then its mention (knowledge) is only with Allah, the Exalted, and those who fix a time (for it) have lied. And as to the saying of one who claims that Husain عليه السلام was not murdered, then he has disbelieved and it is denial and deviation. And as to the newly-occuring events, then turn, in such times, to the narrators of our traditions*, for they are my proof over you and I am the proof of Allah over them. *It is said: The newly-occuring events are those in which one is needy of the ruler, such as the wealth of the orphans, so the wilayat al faqih should be established in it; and it is of no consequence. And apparently, there is no agreement among the people regarding the problems whose ruling they know not. So it is necessary for them that they turn towards one who does their istinbaat from the traditions that have appeared regarding them. And what is meant by the ‘narrators of the hadith’ are the fuqahaa’ (jurists) who have comprehension of the hadith and know its particularity and its generalisation and its manifest and its ambiguous. And they recognise its authentic from its diseased (weak) and its good from its forged. And these are they who have the power of decomposing the unadulterated from it from the spurious ones and discriminating the original from the fake, al matqul (?), not those who recite the known books and memorise the apparent of its expressions (words) but do not understand its meaning nor have the ability of istinbaat while they claim that they are the bearers of the hadith. And as to Muhammad b. `Uthman al `Amri رضي الله عنه – and his father before him – verily he is thiqah (trustworthy) and his writing is my writing. And as to Muhammad b. `Ali b. Mahziyar al Ahwazi, then Allah has reformed for him his heart and removed his doubt from him. And as to what is made to reach us through him, it is not acceptable near us except when it is clean and pure, and the earning through the songstress is haram (in other versions: ثمن القينة حرام – earnings of the alqainah (?) meaning the singing slave girls). And as to Muhammad b. Shadhaan b. Na`eem, he is a man from our shi`ah of the Ahl al Bayt. And as to Abu ‘l Khattab Muhammad b. Abu Zainab al Ajda`, he is cursed and his companions are cursed. So do not accompany the followers of their discourses, for verily I am distanced from them and my fathers عليهم السلام are distanced from them. And as to those who clothe themselves with our wealth, then whoever deems it permissible (to himself) anything of it and he eats of it, he has only taken in Fire. And as to the khums, then it has been made permissible to our shi`ah and they have been made free of it till the time of zhuhur (advent) of our affair, that their births may be made pleasant and not impure/unclean. And as to the regret of the people, then they have indeed doubted in Allah (aj)’s religion over what has reached us through Him and He has raised us independent and there is no need of a relationship with the doubting ones. And as to the cause of the transpiring of the occultation, then verily Allah (aj) says: ‘O you who believe! Do not ask about (those) things which if revealed to you would torment you’ [surat al Ma’idah: 102]. Verily there was not one from my fathers عليهم السلام but there happened to be the bay`ah (pledge of allegiance) to the despot of his time on his neck, and I will emerge when I will emerge and there shall not be the bay`ah of anyone of the despots on my neck. And as to the benefit from me in my ghaibah (occultation), then it is that of the sun when it is concealed from the eyes in the clouds. And surely I am a safeguard for the inhabitants of the earth like the stars are the safeguards for the inhabitants of the sky. So lock the door of questioning regarding that which is not meant for you and do not task yourself beyond the knowledge of that which suffices you. And make as much du`aa’ (as you can) for the hastening of the reappearance, for in it is your felicity. And peace be upon you, O Ishaq b. Ya`qub, and upon the one who follows guidance. 5 ـ حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه ، عن سعد بن عبد الله ، عن علي بن محمد الرازي المعروف بعلان الكليني قال : حدثني محمد بن شاذان بن نعيم النيسابوري قال : اجتمع عندي مال للغريم عليه السلام ( 1 ) خمسمائة درهم ، ينقص منها عشرين درهما فأنفت ( 2 ) أن أبعث بها ناقصة هذا المقدار ، فأتممتها من عندي وبعثت بها إلى محمد بن جعفر ( 3 ) ولم أكتب مالي فيها فأنفذ إلي محمد بن جعفر القبض ، وفيه « وصلت خمسمائة درهم ، لك منها عشرون درهما » . 5 – Muhammad b. al Hasan b. Ahmad b. al Walid (ra) narrated to us from Sa`d b. `Abdullah from `Ali b. Muhammad al Razi known famously as al Kulayni. He said: Muhammad b. Shadhan b. Na`eem al Neishapuri narrated to me. He said: I had collected five hundred dirhams of wealth for the creditor (gharim) عليه السلام (in other manuscripts: للقائم عليه السلام - for the Qa’im عليه السلام, and the application of al gharim to the Master because of his being the Master for the haqq (truth, right), may Allah Ta`ala hasten his reappearance). There were twenty dirhams less in it. I disliked (i.e. كرهت – I was averse, and in some manuscripts فأبيت – so I refused) to send this amount with the deficiency in it. So I completed it from myself and sent it to Muhammad b. Ja`far (he is Muhammad b. Ja`far al Asadi, Abul Husain al Razi, one of the gates/doors (viz. to reach the Imam) as in Sitt) and I did not write about my wealth in it. So a receipt reached Muhammad b. Ja`far and in it was: Send five hundred dirhams and twenty dirhams therein are for you. 6 ـ حدثني أبي رضي الله عنه ، قال : حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله ، عن إسحاق بن يعقوب قال : سمعت الشيخ العمري رضي الله عنه يقول : صحبت رجلا من أهل السواد ومعه مال للغريم عليه السلام فأنفذه فرد عليه ، وقيل له : أخرج حق ولد عمك منه وهو أربعمائة درهم ، فبقي الرجل متحيرا باهتا متعجبا ونظر في حساب المال وكانت في يده ضيعة لولد عمه قد كان رد عليهم بعضها وزوى عنهم بعضها فإذا الذي نض لهم ( 4 ) من ذلك المال أربعمائة درهم ، كما قال عليه السلام ، فأخرجه وأنفذ الباقي فقبل . 6 – My father (ra) narrated to me. He said: Sa`d b. `Abdullah narrated to us from Ishaq b. Ya`qub. He said: I heard the Shaykh, al `Amri (ra) say: I was accompanying a man from the Ahl al Sawad (rural areas?) who had the wealth for the Gharim عليه السلام with him. He dispatched it but it was returned to him and he was told: Remove the right of the son (children) of your uncle from it and it is four hundred dirhams. So the man remained bewildered, perplexed, surprised and he looked into the account of the wealth and there was a landed estate with him for the son (children) of his uncle, part of which had already been yielded to them and part of which had been concealed from them. So when he had obtained for them (in Nihayat al Atheeriyyah: خذ صدقة ما نض من اموالهم – take the alms of what has appeared of their possessions, i.e. what has been obtained and has appeared from the price of their goods etcetera) from that wealth four hundred dirhams like he عليه السلام said, he removed it and dispatched the rest and it was accepted. 7 ـ حدثني أبي رضي الله عنه ، عن سعد بن عبد الله ، عن علي بن محمد الرازي قال : حدثني جماعة من أصحابنا أنه ( 5 ) بعث إلى أبي عبد الله بن الجنيد وهو بواسط غلاما وأمر ببيعه ، فباعه وقبض ثمنه ، فلما عير الدنانير نقصت من التعيير ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة ، فوزن من عنده ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة وأنفذها فرد عليه دينارا وزنه ثمانية عشر قيراطا وحبة . 7 – My father رضي الله عنه narrated to me from Sa`d b. `Abdullah from `Ali b. Muhammad al Razi. He said: A group of our companions narrated to me that surely he (meaning, Sahib al Amr عليه السلام) sent to Abu `Abdillah b. al Junaid and he through an intermediary, a boy and commanded his sale. So he sold him and received his price. When he measured the money, it was found to be eighteen carats and a measure (habbah – weight of a grain of barley) less from the weight. So he measured out eighteen carats and a habbah from his own and dispatched it. Then one dinar was returned to him, its weight being eighteen carats and a habbah.
  22. Why is Imam MahdiÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ called Abu Saleh? What is the meaning behind this? Does the ImamÚÌøá Çááøå ÝÑÌå ÇáÔÑíÝ have a son named Saleh? Wa salaam.
  23. Asked if Saudi Arabia was ready to open a direct dialogue with Tehran, Mohammed said it was impossible to talk with a power that was planning for the return of the Imam Mahdi - whom Shi'ites believe was a descendent of the Prophet who went into hiding 1,000 years ago and will return to establish global Islamic rule before the end of the world. "How do you have a dialogue with this (Iran)?" Mohammed said in clips of the interview posted on social media. "Its (Iran's) logic is that the Imam Mahdi will come and they must prepare the fertile environment for the arrival of the awaited Mahdi and they must control the Muslim world." https://www.google.ca/amp/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN17Y1FK
