what kind of occulation is our imam in?
F.M posted a topic in General Islamic Discussioni never understood the meaning of ghaibat some say he has a special dress that makes him completally invisible for the human eye (and het cant be seen by anyone) and there are also saying that he dwells trough the world but isn't getting recognised, I also heard that our imam (عليه السلام) is not only in occulation for the human eye but also for the unmaterialistic- life such as djins.. and what we often forget how about khidr (عليه السلام) i know allah sends khidr when as company to not feel lonely.. but is he himself too in a ghaibat?
Love in the times of Corona
starlight posted a topic in General Islamic DiscussionSalam everyone, Shrines and holy sites in Iraq and Iran have been closed down due to fears surrounding outbreak of corona virus. The previously crowded shrines of Imams(عليه السلام) are now getting very few visitors, and not just the shrines places like Masjid e Sahlah in Kufa which is said to be the future home of twelfth Imam(عليه السلام) is almost deserted these days. The number of visitors to Masjid ul Haram in Makkah has also dropped significantly. Two things come to my mind. 1. We have narrations telling us to never give up visiting the Imams(عليه السلام) even if it means risking one's life. Aba Abdullah (Imam Jafar Sadiq as) said: “ Do not neglect performing the Ziyarat of the grave of Hussain (a) due to fear." "Do not avoid visiting the grave of Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).) even during the days of prohibition. And one who visits him (his grave) in fear (of the enemies), Allah will give him refuge from the great fear of Qiyamah and he will gain reward proportionate to the fear. And the one who fears due to their fear, Allah will bestow him a refuge under the shade of His empyrean while he shall remain along with Imam Husayn ((عليه السلام).) and shall be protected from the fear of the day of Qiyamah”. We all know in the past people have willingly given up their lives to visit Imam al Hussain(عليه السلام). Corona has a mortality rate of only 2-3%. That's far less than Abbasids Caliphs chopping off one's heads or limbs as a price for visiting Imams(عليه السلام) So, is it okay for us to give visiting the shrines? and for how long? 2. Let's say Imam(عليه السلام) reappears during this virus outbreak and calls his Shias, how many of us would really go and join him? I am not asking in terms of travel restrictions but on a spiritual level. Would we travel to Makkah,Kufa, Iran in the current atmosphere with the risk of being infected and especially when most people in the west don't fell that health services in Iran and Iraq are not upto the mark.
