  1. Imam Zayn-al-Abideen's Treatise On Rights Ismail ibn al-Fadl reported Thabit ibn Dinar to have said that Imam `Ali ibn al-Husayn ibn 'Ali ibn Abi-Talib (a) said: 1. The greatest right of Allah incumbent upon you is that you worship Him without associating anything with Him. When you do that with sincerity, He has made it binding upon Himself to give you sufficiency in the affairs of this world and the next world. 2. The right of yourself incumbent upon you is that you employ it in obeying Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. 3. The right of the tongue is that you consider it too noble for obscenity, accustom it to goodness, refrain from any meddling in which there is little to be gained, act charitable towards people and say only nice words about them. 4. The right of hearing is to keep it aloof from listening to backbiting and hearing what is unlawful to hear. 5. The right of your sight is that you lower it before everything that is unlawful to see and learn lessons from what you see. 6. The right of your hand is that you stretch it not toward that which is unlawful to you. 7. The right of your legs is that you walk not with them toward that which is unlawful to you. Through your legs, you will stop on the Discriminating Bridge; therefore, beware lest they will slip and drive you to Hellfire. 8. The right of your stomach is that you make it not into a container for that which is unlawful to you and you should not eat more than your fill. 9. The right of your private part is that you should protect it from adultery and keep it away from the sights of the others. 10. The right your ritual prayer is that you should know that it is an arrival at the threshold of Allah and that through it you stand before Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. When you realize that, then you will stand in the station of a servant who is lowly, vile, beseeching, trembling, hopeful, fearful, abased, begging, and glorifying the One before Whom you stand with tranquility and solemnity. You must come to your prayer with full awareness and perform it with its conditions and rights. 11. The right of the Hajj pilgrimage is that you should know that it is an arrival at the threshold of your Lord and a flight to Him from your sins; and through it your repentance is accepted and you perform an obligation made incumbent upon you by Allah the All-exalted. 12. The right of fasting is that you should know that it is a veil, which Allah the Almighty and All-majestic has set up over your tongue, your hearing and your sight, your private parts and your stomach, to protect you from Hellfire. If you fail to fast, you will tear the screen that Allah has covered you with. 13. The right of charity is that you should know that it is a storing away with your Lord and a deposit for which you will have no need for witnesses. Then once you know this, you will be more confident of it if you donate it in secret than if you donate it in public. You should know that almsgiving fends off from you misfortunes and ailments in this world, and saves you from Hellfire in the Hereafter. 14. The right of the offering is that you should dedicate it purely to Allah the Almighty and All-majestic and. you should never dedicate it to any of his creatures, since your one and only goal should be that you want to expose yourself to the mercy of Allah and to the salvation of your soul on the day you will meet Him. 15. The right of the possessor of authority is that you should know that Allah has established you as a trial for him. Allah is testing him through the authority He has given him over you. You should not expose yourself to his wrath; otherwise, you cause your own destruction and you become his partner in whatever oppression he commits. 16. The right of the one who trains you through knowledge is that you should glorify him, respect his meetings, listen well to him, be responsive to him, and you should neither raise your voice louder than his nor answer any question that is posed to him before he answers first, nor speak to anyone in his lecture, nor backbite any person in his presence; rather, you should defend him when something bad is said about him in your presence, cover up his defects, reveal his virtuous acts, and not sit with an enemy of him or incur the animosity of his friends. If you do all that, the angels of Allah the Almighty and All-majestic will testify that you have attended to him and earned his knowledge for the sake of Allah the Almighty and All-majestic but not for the sake of people. 17. The right of him who trains you through ownership is that you should obey him and never disobey him except when he guides you to matters that bring about the wrath of Allah the Almighty and All-majestic, since no creature should be obeyed in matters that lead to the disobedience to the Creator. 18. The right of your subjects through authority is that you should know that you have authority over them due to their weakness and your power over them; therefore, it is obligatory upon you to treat them with justice, to act toward them like merciful father, to forgive their ignorance, not to be hasty in punishing them, and to thank Allah the Almighty and All-majestic for the power that He has given you over them. 19. The right of your subjects through knowledge is that you should know that Allah the Almighty and All-majestic established you as guardian over them through what He has granted you of knowledge and what He has granted authority over His treasures of wisdom. If you do well in teaching these people and in avoiding transgressing and becoming impatient with them, then Allah will increase you more virtues from Him; rather, if you prevent people from getting your knowledge or you fail to give them their dues when they seek knowledge from you, it will be incumbent upon Allah the Almighty and All-majestic to divest you of your knowledge and its brilliance and to remove your position from hearts. 20. The right of your wife is that you should know that Allah the Almighty and All-majestic has made her repose and a comfort; therefore, you should realize that this is a grace from Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. As a result, you must honor her and treat her mildly even if her duty towards you may be more obligatory than yours towards her. It is yet your duty to show her mercy because she is like a prisoner with you. You should also vouch for her food and clothing. When she makes a mistake, you should forgive her. 21. The right of your servant is that you should know that he is a creature of your Lord, the son of your father and part of your flesh and blood. You own him not because you fashioned him, but it is Allah Who fashioned him, and you did not create any of his organs or bring him to sustenance; rather it is Allah the Almighty and All-Majestic Who saved you from all that. Then He subjugated him to you, entrusted him to you and provisionally consigned him with you so that he may guard the good that you confer upon him. So, treat him well just as he has treated you well And if you dislike him, you ought to let him go and replace him, but do not torment the creature of Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. 22. The right of your mother is that you should know that she carried you where no one carries anyone, and she fed you with the fruit of her heart when no one feeds anyone, and she protected you with all of her organs. She did not care if she felt hungry as long as you ate, and if she was naked as long as you were clothed, and if she was thirsty as long as you drank, and if she was under sunlight as long as you were in the shade, and if she was deprived of sleeping as long as you were resting. She protected you from heat and coldness so that you should be there for her. You will never be able to thank her duly unless Allah helps and leads you to success to do so. 23. The right of your father is that you should know that he is your root and without him, you would not exist. Whenever you see anything in yourself which pleases you, you should know that your father is the root of its blessing upon you. So, praise Allah and thank Him in recognition of that. And there is no power but in Allah. 24. And the right of your child is that you should know that he is from you and he will be ascribed to you in this world through both his good deeds and his evil deeds. And you are responsible for what has been entrusted to you in teaching him good conduct, and guiding him toward his Lord the Almighty and All-exalted and helping him to obey Him. So, act towards his affairs the acts of one who knows that he will be awarded for doing good to him and punished for doing evil to him. 25. The right of your brother is that you should know that he is your hand, your back, and your power. Take him not as a weapon with which to disobey Allah, nor as a means with which to oppress the servants of Allah. Do not neglect to help him against his enemy and to give him good counsel. Then if he obeys his Lord, it is fine; otherwise, Allah must be more preferable and more honorable to you than he is. There is no power except through Allah. 26. The right of your master who has done you favors is that you should know that he has spent his property for you and has brought you out of the abasement of slavery and its desolation and brought you into the honor of freedom and its sociability. He has freed you from the captivity of his own possession and has released the bonds of slavery from you. He has brought you out of the prison of subjugation, given you ownership of yourself, and given you the freedom to worship your Lord. You should thus know that he is the closest creature to you in your life and after your death and it is obligatory upon you to support him with your life and with whatever he needs from you. There is no power except through Allah. 27. The right of the servant whom you have done a favor is that you should know that Allah the Almighty and All-Majestic has made your manumitting of him a means to him and a barrier that shields you against Hellfire. Your reward for this in this worldly life is that you inherit him if he does not have any relations of kin. This is a compensation for the property you have spent for him. In the next world, your reward for setting him free will Paradise. 28. The right of him who treats you kindly is that you should thank him, acknowledge his kindness, spread the good word around about him, and pray sincerely for him confidentially between Allah the Almighty and All-majestic and yourself. If you do that, you have thanked him both in private and in public. If you are able to practically recompense him one day, then do recompense him. 29. The right of muezzin (a person who proclaims the hours of prayer) is that you should know that he is the one reminding you of your Lord the Almighty and All-majestic, calling you to your good fortune, and helping you fulfill a duty that Allah has made obligatory upon you to carry out. So, thank him for this just as you thank one who does favors to you. 30. The right of your leader in your ritual prayer is that you should know that he has taken on the role of a mediator between you and your Lord the Almighty and All-majestic, spoke on behalf of you while you did not speak on behalf of him, supplicated for you while you did not supplicate for him, and spared you the anxiety of standing before Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. Should he perform the prayer imperfectly, he is held responsible for that, but not you; if he performs it perfectly, you will be his partner in reward and he will not be given any additional thing. So he protected your self through his self and your prayer through his prayer. Therefore, you should thank him for this as much as he deserves. 31. The right of your sitting companion is that you treat him gently and be fair while talking with him and you should not leave him before obtaining his permission. However, if he is the first to come and sit with you, he can leave you whenever he wishes without need for obtaining your permission. You should overlook his slips, appreciate his good deeds and say only good wording to him. 32. The right of your neighbor is that you should act as guardian for him when he is absent, honor him when he is present and defend him when he is wronged. You should not pursue any of his imperfections; if you realize a defect issued from him, you must cover it up; if you are sure that he accepts your advices, you should then give him advices secretly. You should not disappoint him in his hardships; rather, you should pardon his slips, forgive his wrongdoings and associate with him nobly. There is no power except through Allah. 33. The right of your friend is that you should act as his friend through favoring him and acting towards him fairly and you should honor him as same as he honors you and you never allow him to come ahead of you in doing favors; rather, if he does, then you should award him for that. You should love him as same as he loves you and prevent him from doing any act of disobedience. You should also act as mercy to him and you should never be as source of torture to him. There is no power except through Allah. 34. The right of the partner is that you should take care of his affairs in his absence and take care of him when he is present. Do not decide on something before listening to his opinion and do not act upon your opinion before discussing the matter with him. You should guard his property and never betray him, both in significant and insignificant affairs. Verily, the help of Allah the All-blessed and All-exalted is extended to the partners as long as they do not act unfaithfully towards one another. There is no power except through Allah. 35. The right of your property is that you should not attain it except by legitimate means and you should only spend it for legitimate causes. Do not prefer to yourself that which does not benefit you; rather, you should spend it in domains of obedience to Your Lord. You should not withhold your property; otherwise, you will receive nothing but regret, remorse, and liability. There is no power except through Allah. 36. The right of him whom you owe is that you should pay him back if you have the means to do so. But if you are in hardship, you should satisfy him by using nice words and make him give you respite through gentle means. 37. The right of the associate is that you should not mislead, cheat, lie to, or fool him; rather, you should fear Allah the All-blessed and All-exalted with regard to him. 38. The right of the adversary who has a claim against you is that if his claim against you is true, you should be a fair judge against yourself, you should not do injustice to him, and you should give him his due. Yet, if his claim against you is false, then you should be lenient to him and you should not impose upon him anything except lenience and should not bring about the wrath of your Lord with regard his claim. There is no power except through Allah. 39. The right of the adversary against whom you have a claim is that if your claim against him is true, then you should use pleasant words while you are filing your claim and you should not disprove of his right. Yet, if your claim against him is false, then you should fear Allah the Almighty and All-Majestic, repent to him and retreat your claim. 40. The right of him who seeks your advice is that if you come to know that you can give him good advice, then you should give him so; otherwise, you may guide him to what he does not know. 41. The right of him whose advice you seek is that you should not accuse him when he gives you advice which does not conform to your own opinion. If his opinion is accepted by you, then you should thank Allah the Almighty and All-majestic. 42. The right of him who seeks your counsel is that you should give him your counsel as much as you think he can bear. The method you follow with him should be based on mercy and lenience to him. 43. The right of your counselor is that you should treat him you gently and be whole-heartedly attentive to him. If what he presents to you is right, you should praise Allah the Almighty and All-majestic for it; but if he is wrong, then you should be merciful to him, you should not accuse him, and you should know that he was wrong although you should not punish him for that unless he deserves accusation. So, do not care for him anymore under any circumstances. There is no power except through Allah. 44. The right of him who is older than you are is that you should respect him because of his age and honor him for he had been Muslim before you were. You should also avoid facing him in disputes, walking ahead of him, and deeming him ignorant. If he should treat you foolishly, you should put up with him and honor him to respect his being an older Muslim and enjoying the inviolability decided by Islam. 45. The right of him who is younger than you are is to show him mercy in teaching him, to pardon him, to cover up his mistakes, to treat him leniently, and to help him. 46. The right of him who begs from you is that you should give him as much as he needs. 47. The right of him from whom you beg is that you should accept from him whatever he grants you with gratitude and you should acknowledge his favors. You should accept his excuse if he withholds. 48. The right of him who gives you pleasure for the sake of Allah thee All-exalted is that you should first praise Allah the All-exalted for that and secondly thank him. 49. The right of him who wrongs you is that you should pardon him. However, if you are sure that pardon will increase his arrogance, you may then get your due from him by defending yourself. Allah the All-blessed and All-exalted says, "But indeed if any do help and defend themselves after a wrong done to them, against such there is no blame. (24/41)" 50. The right of the people of your creed is that you should wholeheartedly provide safety for them, gently show them mercy, treat their wrongdoers with lenience, treat them with friendliness, seek their welfare, thank those of them who do good deeds to you, stop injuring them, love for them whatever you love for yourself, hate for them whatever you have for yourself, and treat the elders as your fathers, the youths as your brothers, the old women as your mothers, and the children as your own children. 51. The right of those under the protection of Islam is that you should accept from them what Allah the Almighty and All-majestic has accepted from them, you should not wrong them as long as they fulfill their covenants with Allah the Almighty and All-majestic.

  2. Can you please help with these doubts that I've met recently and since then i feel like all of the waqia e karbala is twisted . 1. Was imam hussain going to koofa to build an army if yes then it was a good strategy by opponents to kill them when they were alone. 2. Why the opponents didn't kill imam sajjad in karbala as without him there would've been no shias and eventually everybody would've obeyed yazid. 3. Imam hussain was forced to leave madina but he left a daughter there to whom no harm was made. Please help me clear my concepts
  3. Assalamu Alaikom wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh Today is Eid al Zahra and the start of Usboo al Wahda, the week of unity of Muslims ending on the 17th of Rabi ul Awal, declared by Imam Khomeini (ra). On this day, Imam Sajjad (as), the man who would soak his beard in tears smiled. On this day, the killers of Imam Husayn (as) were avenged. Let us all be happy on Eid al Zahra and praise Allah in unity with all Muslims. Eid ul Mubarak!
  4. “The right of him who is younger than you is that you have compassion on him, train and educate him, pardon him, and cover up his faults, be gentle with him and help him, cover up the guilt of his juvenility because this will make him repent; treat him with patience, and stop quarreling with him. This will lead him to more sensible conduct.” Imam Sajjad (The forth Imam), The Treatise on Rights, Right n.44
  5. Salam aleikum, I have a question if someone could assist regarding the speech of Imam Sajjad in sham at the court of Yazid. When he says "I am the son of the Lion of Hijaz" it is my understanding based on the flow of the speech that he is referring to Imam Ali. Can someone confirm this? I can't find any other instances of Hazrat Ali being called the Lion of Hijaz. Thanks for your help. TLH
  6. Salam, I had to revise history in regard to who was the first who made the islamic coin. Sunni scholars claim that it was Abdul Malik bin Marwan. There is a narration that mentioned that the caliph summoned the imam al baqir from Madinah to ask him about it so imam baqir told him to change the roman coins to islamic coins. Shia scholars say that Imam Ali was the first who made the islamic coin and that imam sajjad, not al baqir, who was summoned by abdul malik and he told abdul malik to revert the coins to the way imam ali made them. Shia scholars also say that Mo'awyiah was the one who changed the islamic coins by imam ali to the coins of persia. what do you think? https://www.islam4u.com/ar/maghalat/ضربُ-النقود-في-الإسلام
  7. My God! What a dua! This is a dua from Imam Zainulabideen's sahifa-al-kamilah-sajjadiyya His Supplication on Noble Moral Traits and Acts Pleasing to God 1- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, cause my faith to reach the most perfect faith, make my certainty the most excellent certainty, and take my intention to the best of intentions and my works to the best of works! 2- O God, complete my intention through Thy gentleness, rectify my certainty through what is with Thee, and set right what is corrupt in me through Thy power! 3- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, spare me the concerns which distract me, employ me in that about which Thou wilt ask me tomorrow, and let me pass my days in that for which Thou hast created me! Free me from need, expand Thy provision toward me, and tempt me not with ingratitude! Exalt me and afflict me not with pride! Make me worship Thee and corrupt not my worship with self-admiration! Let good flow out from my hands upon the people and efface it not by my making them feel obliged!1 Give me the highest moral traits and preserve me from vainglory! 4- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, raise me not a single degree before the people without lowering me its like in myself and bring about no outward exaltation for me without an inward abasement in myself to the same measure! 5- O God, bless Muhammad and Muhammad's Household, give me to enjoy a sound guidance which I seek not to replace, a path of truth from which I swerve not, and an intention of right conduct in which I have no doubts! Let me live as long as my life is a free gift in obeying Thee, but if my life should become a pasture for Satan, seize me to Thyself before Thy hatred overtakes me or Thy wrath against be becomes firm! 6- O God, deposit in me no quality for which I will be faulted, unless Thou settest it right, no flaw for which I will be blamed, unless Thou makest it beautiful, no deficient noble trait, unless Thou completest it! 7- O God, bless Muhammad and Muhammad's Household and replace for me the animosity of the people of hatred with love, the envy of the people of insolence with affection, the suspicion of the people of righteousness with trust, the enmity of those close with friendship, the disrespect of womb relatives with devotion, the abandonment of relatives with help, the attachment of flatterers with love set right, the rejection of fellows with generous friendliness, and the bitterness of the fear of wrongdoers with the sweetness of security! 8- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, appoint for me a hand against him who wrongs me, a tongue against him who disputes with me, and a victory over him who stubbornly resists me! Give me guile against him who schemes against me, power over him who oppresses me, refutation of him who reviles me, and safety from him who threatens me! Grant me success to obey him who points me straight and follow him who guides me right! 9- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and point me straight to resist him who is dishonest toward me with good counsel, repay him who separates from me with gentle devotion, reward him who deprives me with free giving, recompense him who cuts me off with joining, oppose him who slanders me with excellent mention, give thanks for good, and shut my eyes to evil! 10- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, adorn me with the adornment of the righteous, and clothe me in the ornaments of the godfearing, through spreading justice, restraining rage, quenching the flame of hate, bringing together the people of separation, correcting discord, spreading about good behaviour, covering faults, mildness of temper, lowering the wing,2 beauty of conduct, gravity of bearing, agreeableness in comportment, precedence in reaching excellence, preferring bounteousness, refraining from condemnation, bestowing bounty on the undeserving, speaking the truth, though it be painful, making little of the good in my words and deeds, though it be much, and making much of the evil in my words and deeds, though it be little! Perfect this for me through lasting obedience, holding fast to the community, and rejecting the people of innovation and those who act in accordance with original opinions! 11- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, appoint for me Thy widest provision in my old age and Thy strongest strength when I am exhausted, try me not with laziness in worship of Thee, blindness toward Thy path, undertaking what opposes love for Thee, joining with him who has separated himself from Thee, and separating from him who has joined himself to Thee! 12- O God, make me leap to Thee in times of distress, ask from Thee in needs, and plead to Thee in misery! Tempt me not to seek help from other than Thee when I am distressed, to humble myself in asking from someone else when I am poor, or to plead with someone less than Thee when I fear, for then I would deserve Thy abandonment, Thy withholding, and Thy turning away, O Most Merciful of the merciful! 13- O God, make the wishing, the doubt, and the envy which Satan throws into my heart a remembrance of Thy mightiness, a reflection upon Thy power, and a devising against Thy enemy! Make everything he causes to pass over my tongue, - the indecent or ugly words, the maligning of good repute, the false witness, the speaking ill of an absent man of faith or the reviling of one present, and all things similar - a speech in praise of Thee, a pursual of eulogizing Thee, an excursion in magnifying Thee, a thanksgiving for Thy favour, an acknowledgement of Thy beneficence, and an enumeration of Thy kindnesses! 14- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, let me not be wronged while Thou canst repel from me, let me not do wrong while Thou art powerful over holding me back, let me not be misguided while Thou art able to guide me, let me not be poor while with Thee is my plenty, let me not be insolent while from Thee comes my wealth! 15- O God, I come to Thy forgiveness, I go straight to Thy pardon, I yearn for Thy forbearance, and I trust in Thy bounty, but there is nothing with me to make me warrant Thy forgiveness, nothing in my works to make me merit Thy pardon, and nothing on my behalf after I judge my soul but Thy bounty, so bless Muhammad and his Household and bestow Thy bounty upon me! 16- O God, make my speech be guidance, inspire me with reverential fear, give me success in that which is most pure, and employ me in what is most pleasing to Thee! 17- O God, let me tread the most exemplary path and make me live and die in Thy creed! 18- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, give me to enjoy moderation, make me into one of the people of right behaviour, the proofs of right conduct, and the servants of righteousness, and provide me with triumph at the place of Return3 and safety from the Ambush!4 19- O God, take to Thyself from my soul what will purify it and leave for my soul that of my soul that will set it right, for my soul will perish unless Thou preservest it! 20- O God, Thou art my stores when I sorrow, Thou art my recourse when I am deprived, from Thee I seek aid when troubled and with Thee is a substitute for everything gone by, a correction for everything corrupted, and a change from everything Thou disapprovest. So show kindness to me with well-being before affliction, wealth before asking, right conduct before misguidance; suffice me against the burden of shame toward the servants, give me security on the Day of Return, and grant me excellent right guidance! 21- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, repel from me through Thy gentleness, feed me through Thy favour, set me right through Thy generosity, heal me through Thy benefaction, shade me in Thy shelter, wrap me in Thy good pleasure, and give me success to reach the most guided of affairs when affairs confuse me, the purest of works when works seem similar, and the most pleasing to Thee of creeds when creeds conflict! 22- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, crown me with sufficiency, place in me excellent guardianship,5 give me to guide correctly, tempt me not with plenty, grant me excellent ease, make not my life toil and trouble, and refuse not my supplication in rejection, for I make none rival to Thee and I supplicate none with Thee as equal! 23- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, hold me back from prodigality, fortify my provision against ruin, increase my possessions through blessing them, and set me upon the path of guidance through piety in what I spend! 24- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, spare me the burden of earning, and provide for me without reckoning, lest I be distracted from Thy worship through seeking and carry the load of earning's ill results! 25- O God, bestow upon me what I seek through Thy power and grant me sanctuary from what I fear through Thy might! 26- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, save my face through ease, and demean not my dignity through neediness, lest I seek provision from those whom Thou hast provided and asks for bestowal from the worst of Thy creatures! Then I would be tried by praising him who gave to me and afflicted with blaming him who held back from me, while Thou - not they - art patron of giving and holding back. 27- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and provide me with soundness in worship, detachment in renunciation, knowledge put into action, and abstinence in measure! 28- O God, seal my term with Thy pardon, verify my expectation in hoping for Thy mercy, smooth my paths to reach Thy good pleasure, and make my works good in all my states! 29- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, incite me to remember Thee in times of heedlessness, employ me in Thy obedience in days of disregard, open a smooth road for me to Thy love, and complete for me thereby the good of this world and the next! 30- O God, and bless Muhammad and his Household the best Thou hast blessed any of Thy creatures before him and wilt bless any of them after him, and give to us in this World good, and in the next world good, and protect me through Thy mercy from the chastisement of the Fire!6
