  1. Salam. Have started a page of 'Tafseer' on my website. http://www.marefatea...ait.com/tafseer The Purpose of this page is to highlight the status & authority of the AhlulBait (as) from the verses of the Holy Quran and Tafsir from the narrations of the Imam's (as). Tafseer of Bismillah: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين الصفار، عن العباس بن معروف، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عمن حدثه، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام): أنه سئل عن (بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم) ؟ فقال: " الباء بهاء الله، والسين سناء الله، والميم ملك الله. قال: قلت: الله ؟ قال: الألف آلاء الله على خلقه من النعيم بولايتنا، واللام إلزام الله خلقه على ولايتنا. قلت: فالهاء ؟ فقال: هوان لمن خالف محمدا وآل محمد صلوات الله عليهم أجمعين Narrated to me (Sheikh Sadooq) Muhammad bin Husain Al-Saffar, from Abbas bin Ma'roof, from Safwaan bin Yahya, from Aba Abdillah (as): I (narrator) asked about "Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem". Imam (as) said, 'BA' is for glory of Allah, 'SEEN' is for splendor of Allah, 'MEEM' is for Kingdom of Allah. I (narrator) asked what is meant by "Allah". Imam (as) said: 'Alif' stands for the Blessing (Nemat) of our Wilayat on Gods creations. 'Laam' stands for the obligation of our Wilayat on Gods creations. And 'Hey' stands for disgrace for those who oppose Muhammad (saww) and the progeny of Muhammad (as).” [source: At-Tauheed, Sheikh Sadooq, Pg. 230] http://www.marefatea...ait.com/tafseer I will continue to post on this thread as I keep on adding on to my website for the benefit of those who are on shiachat.com Wassalam
  2. 28 Merits specifically for Imam Ali (as) The following is taken from the book Al-Qatra by Sayed Ahmad Mustanbat Vol. 2, Pg. 205, Hadith. 57 From the book ‘Al-Majmoe al-Raiq min azhaar al-Hadaiq’, 100 merits specifically for Amir al-Momineen (as), from those which Shaikh Sadooq narrated on the day of Ghadeer in the year 361 Hijri, with the chain of narrators going up to the Prophet (saww) about those merits which Allah (swt) chose specifically for Amir Al-Momineen (as). And from those I have chosen 28 merits: أن الله تعالى خلقه من نور عظمته، كما قال النبي: خلقت أنا و عليّ من نور واحد Allah (swt) created Imam Ali (as) from the light (noor) of His greatness/Majesty, as the Prophet (saww) has said, "I and Ali were created from a single light (noor)." أنه كان يعبد الله في أصلاب آبائه و أرحام امهاته من لدن آدم Imam Ali (as) worshiped Allah (swt) in the loins of His forefathers and wombs of his mother's since Adam (as). أنه لما وُلد ظهر نور من عنان السماء إلي ظهر الكعبة، و سقطت الأصنام الّتي كانت على الكعبة [على وجوها]، و صاح إبليس و قال: ويل للأصنام و عبدتها من هذا المولود When Imam Ali (as) was born, light (noor) appeared from the sky to the surface of the Ka'ba. And the idols that were upon the Ka’ba fell down [upon their faces]. And Iblees cried out saying, 'Woe be to the Idols and its worshipers from this new born' أنه [كان] يفسّر حديث رسول الله و يذكر حديث كلّ نبيّ. Imam Ali (as) used to explain (do tafseer) of the sayings (hadith) of the Prophet (saww) and He used to narrate (or remember?) the sayings (hadith) of all the Messengers. أنه عيبة علم رسول الله. Imam Ali (as) is the container of the knowledge of the Prophet (saww). أنه مفرّج الكرب عن وجه رسول الله. Imam Ali (as) was the one to drive away distress/worries from the face of the Prophet (saww). أنه شبيه عيسى بن مريم في دلالته إلّا النبوّة Imam Ali (as) is similar to Isa bin Maryam (as) in his proofs except for Prophet Hood. أنه شبيه أيّوب في صبره Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ayyub (as) in his patience. أنه شبيه إبراهيم في سخائه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ibraheem (as) in his generosity. أنه شبيه داود في قوّته و صوته Imam Ali (as) is similar to Dawood (as) in his power/strength and in his voice. أنه شبيه سليمان في بهجته و ملكه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Sulayman (as) in his splendor/beauty and his supremacy. أنه شبيه لقمان في حكمته Imam Ali (as) is similar to Lukman (as) in his wisdom. أنه شبيه إسماعيل في تسليمه و صدقه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Ismaeel (as) in his acceptance/submission and honesty. أنه شبيه نوح في إجابة دعائه Imam Ali (as) is similar to Nooh (as) in the acceptance of his prayer. أنه شبيه ذي النون في أمره Imam Ali (as) is similar to Yunus (as) in his affairs. أنه شبيه رسول الله في قضائه إلّا النبوّة Imam Ali (as) is similar to the Prophet (saww) in his judgement/ruling except for Prophet Hood. أنه كان [في الغزوات] جبرئيل عن يمينه، و ميكائيل عن يساره، و ملك الموت بين يديه فلا يرجع حتّى يفتح الله عليه. Imam Ali (as) when in battles, had Jibraeel on his right side and Mikaeel on his left side and the angel of death in front of Him. And He did not return until Allah (swt) granted victory upon Him. أنه أوّل من يدعى باسمه يوم القيامة Imam Ali (as) is the first one to be called by His name on the day of Judgement. أن الملائكة تتقرّب إلى الله [تعالى] بولايته The angels seek nearness to Allah (swt) by means of Wilayat of Imam Ali (as). أنه قالع باب الخيبر الرامي به خلف ظهره أربعين ذراعاً ثمّ جعله جسراً، [حمله] على كفّه حتّى عبّر [عليه] جميع العسكر Imam Ali (as) uprooted the door of Khaibar and threw it behind his back to a distance of 40 arm’s length. Then made it a bridge, carrying it upon the palm of his hand until all the soldiers crossed over. أنّ ولايته عرضت على بقاع الأرضين، فمن قبل ولايته طاب و زكا، و من لم يقبل صار سباخاً The Wilayah of Imam Ali (as) was put forth to parts of the earth. So those parts that accepted His Wilayah become beautiful and pure. And those who did not accept His Wilayah became salty land (not supporting any growth) أنّ ولايته عرضت على النبات، فما قبل ولايته صار نافعاً للناس، و من لم يقبل صار سمّاً قاتلاً The Wilayah of Imam Ali (as) was put forth to the plants. So those that accepted His Wilayah became beneficial/useful for the people and those that did not accept His Wilayah became poisonous killing. أنّ القمر كلّمه ليلة القدر The moon talked to Imam Ali (as) on night of Qadr. استغناؤه عن جميع الناس و افتقارهم إليه في العلوم Imam Ali (as) was free (in no need) from all the people and the people were in need of Imam Ali (as) in knowledge. أنّه كان مع كلّ نبيّ سرّاً و مع رسول الله جهراً Imam Ali (as) was along with all the Prophets secretly and with Prophet Mohammad apparently. أنّ حلقة باب الجنّة إذا ضربت طنّت و قالت: يا عليّ When the ring of the door of paradise is hit/struck, it rings and says ‘Ya Ali’. أنّ شجرة طوبى في الجنّة في داره، و أغصانها في دور المؤمنين. The tree of Tooba in Paradise is in the house of Imam Ali (as) and its branches are in the houses of the believers. أنّه كتاب الله الناطق. Imam Ali (as) is the book of speaking book of Allah (swt).

  3. (bismillah) [Describing the event of Martyrdom of Imam Ali (as)]: And Jibreel called out from between the sky and the earth, and all who were awake heard him: "By Allah, the pillars of guidance have been demolished. The stars of the sky and signs of the pious have been extinguished. By Allah, the rope of Allah has been cut. The cousin of Mohammad al-Mustafa has been killed. The guardian al-Mujtaba has been killed. Ali al-Murtaza (as) has been killed. By Allah the chief of the guardians has been killed. He was killed by the most wretched of all the wretched." When Umm-Kulsoom (sa) heard the announcement of Jibraeel , She hit her face and her cheek, tore the side of her dress and screamed ‘O Father, O Ali (as), O Mohammad (saw), O Sayyedah (sa). .. ونادى جبرئيل عليه السلام بين السماء والارض بصوت يسمعه كل مستيقظ: " تهدمت والله أركان الهدى، وانطمست والله نجوم السماء و أعلام التقى، وانفصمت والله العروة الوثقى، قتل ابن عم محمد المصطفى، قتل الوصي المجتبى، قتل علي المرتضى، قتل والله سيد الاوصياء، قتله أشقى الاشقياء " قال: فلما سمعت ام كلثوم نعي جبرئيل فلطمت على وجهها وخدها وشقت جيبها و صاحت: وا أبتاه وا علياه وامحمداه واسيداه [source: Bihar al-Anwar, Vol, 42, Pg. 282] http://www.marefateahlebait.com/husain-and-karbala/hitting-ones-self
  4. Zakariya bin Adam narrates: و أخبرني أبو الحسن محمد بن هارون بن موسى قال حدثنا أبي قال أخبرني أبو جعفر محمد بن أحمد بن الوليد قال حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي قال حدثنا زكريا بن آدم قال إني لعند الرضا إذ جي‏ء بأبي جعفر له و سنه أقل من أربع فضرب بيده إلى الأرض و رفع رأسه إلى السماء و هو يفكر فقال له الرضا بنفسي أنت لم طال فكرك فقال فيما صنع بأمي فاطمة أم و الله لأخرجنهما ثم لأحرقنهما ثم لأذرينهما ثم لأنسفهما في اليم نسفا فاستدناه و قبل ما بين عينيه ثم قال أنت لها يعني الإمامة "Once I was with Imam Reza (as) that Aba Jafar Imam Muhammad Taqi (as) came. His (as) age was less that 4 years. He (as) struck his hands on the ground and raised his head towards the sky and thought for long." Then Imam Reza (as) said, "By my self, What are you thinking for so long?" Imam Taqi (as) said, "I am thinking regarding my (grand) mother Fatema (sa). By Allah سبحانه وتعالى, I want to remove those two (abu bakr and umar), burn those two and blow away their remains in the sea." Imam Reza (as) then kissed him between his eyes (on the forehead) and said, "My father and mother be sacrificed for you. For you is the Imamate." [source: Bihar al Anwar vol.50 pg.59 / Dalail Al Imamah Pg.212] Note: This is a long hadees, only a part is being quoted here. Amir Al Momineen (as) narrates that Prophet Muhammad (saww) said: "On the night of Me'raj......" فقال عز و جل ارفع رأسك فرفعت رأسي و إذا أنا بأنوار علي و فاطمة و الحسن و الحسين و علي بن الحسين و محمد بن علي جعفر بن محمد و موسى بن جعفر و علي بن موسى و محمد بن علي و علي بن محمد و الحسن بن علي و م‏ح‏م‏د بن الحسن القائم في وسطهم كأنه كوكب دري ‏قلت يا رب و من هؤلاء قال هؤلاء الأئمة و هذا القائم الذي يحلل حلالي و يحرم حرامي و به أنتقم من أعدائي و هو راحة لأوليائي و هو الذي يشفي قلوب شيعتك من الظالمين و الجاحدين و الكافرين فيخرج اللات و العزى طريين فيحرقهما فلفتنة الناس يومئذ بهما أشد من فتنة العجل و السامري "Allah (swt) said, "Raise your head". I raised my head and saw My light along with the light of Ali, Fatema, Hasan, Husain, Ali bin Husain, Muhammad bin Ali, Jafar bin Muhammad, Musa bin Jafar, Ali bin Musa, Muhammad bin Ali, Ali bin Muhammad, Hasan bin Ali, MHMD bin Hasan Al Qaim (peace be upon them all) in the center amongst them like a shining star. I (saww) said, "O Lord, Who are these?" Allah (swt) said, "These are the Imam's (as) and this is Al-Qaim (atfs) who will establish my halaal as halaal and my haraam as haraam. And by Him (atfs) I will take revenge from my enemies. He (atfs) is the source of rest for my friends. He (atfs) is the one who will heal the hearts of the Shia's from the oppressors, deniers and disbelievers. He (atfs) will remove 'Laat' and 'Uzza' (referring to Abu bakr and Umar) and burn both of them. The Fitna/Affliction of that day will be more severe than the fitna/affliction of calf and samarri.

  5. ~ Narrations on the importance of the remembering and talking about the AhlulBait (as) andthat the Zikr of AhlulBait (as) is the Zikr of Allah ~ عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن أبيه، عن فضالة بن أيوب عن علي بن أبي حمزة قال: سمعت أبا عبدالله عليه السلام يقول: شيعتنا الرحمآء بينهم، الذين إذا خلوا ذكرواالله [إن ذكرنا من ذكر الله] إنا إذا ذكرنا ذكر الله وإذا ذكر عدو ناذ كر الشيطان A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from his father from Fadalah ibn Ayyub from Ali ibn abu Hamza who has said the following: "I heard Abu Abdillah (as) saying, "Our Shia are compassionate to each other. When they are alone they speak of and remember Allah. To speak of us is to speak of Allah. When we are mentioned Allah is mentioned, but when our enemies are spoken of it is like speaking of Satan." [source: Al-Kafi, Vol. 2, Pg. 186, Chapter. 77, Hadees. 1] حمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن محمد بن إسماعيل بن بزيع، عن صالح بن عقبة، عن يزيد بن عبدالملك، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: تزاوروا فإن في زيارتكم إحياء لقلوبكم وذكرا لاحاديثنا، وأحاديثنا تعطف بعضكم على بعض(2) فإن أخذتم بهار شدتم ونجوتم وإن تركتموها ضللتم وهلكتم، فخذوا بهاو أنا بنجاتكم زعيم Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Muhammad ibn Ismail ibn Bazi from Salih ibn ‘Aqabah from Yazid ibn ‘Abd al-Malik from Abu AbdiAllah (as), who said, "Visit each other, verily in it there is a revival for your hearts and a study of our Ahadith (may take place). Our Ahadith helps you to be kind to each other. If you follow them you will find guidance and salvation in them. If you disregard them you will go astray and be destroyed. Therefore, follow them and I will assure you of your salvation." [source: Al-Kafi, Vol. 2, Pg. 186, Chapter. 77, Hadees. 2] عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد، عن الوشاء، عن منصور بن يونس عن عباد بن كثير قال: قلت لابي عبدالله عليه السلام: إني مررت بقاص يقص وهو يقول: هذا المجلس [الذي] لا يشقى به جليس، قال: فقال أبوعبدالله عليه السلام: هيهات هيهات، أخطأت(4) أستاههم الحفرة، إن لله ملائكة سياحين، سوى الكرام الكاتبين، فإذا مروا بقوم ذكرون محمدا وآل محمد قالوا: قفوا فقد أصبتم حاجتكم، فيجلسون، فيتفقهون معهم فإذا قاموا عادوا مرضا هم وشهدوا جنائزهم وتعاهدوا غائبهم، فذلك المجلس الذي لا يشقى به جليس A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from al-Washsha from Mansur ibn Yunus from Abbad ibn Kathir who has said the following: "I said to Abu Abdillah (as), "Once I passed by a storyteller who said to his audience, "This is a gathering whose attendants do not suffer wickedness." The narrator has said that Abu Abdillah (as), then said, "How extremely far is it from reality! You passed by the wrong gathering. (Astahahum al-Hufrah) How terribly wrong is their expresssion! Allah has certain angels who visit places, and they are other than the honorable scribes. When they pass by a people, who speak of Muhammad and Ale Muhammad (as), these angels say, "Stop here. You have found what you needed." They will sit down and begin to think and understand with them. When the gathering disperses they visit their people suffering due to ill health, attend their funerals and look after those of them who are absent. That is the gathering whose attendants do not suffer wickedness." [source: Al-Kafi, Vol. 2, Pg. 186, Chapter. 77, Hadees. 3] محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن علي بن الحكم، عن المستورد النخعي، عمن رواه، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال ; إن من الملائكة الذين في السماء ليطلعون إلى الواحد والاثنين والثلاثة وهم يذكرون فضل آل محمد قال: فتقول: أما ترون إلى هؤلاء في قلتهم وكثرة عدو هم يصفون فضل آل محمد صلى الله عليه وآله؟ قال: فتقول الطائفة الاخرى من الملائكة: ذلك فضل الله يؤتيه من يشاء والله ذوالفضل العظيم Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa from Ali ibn al-Hakam from al-Mustawrid al-Nakhai from those whom he has mentioned (in his book) from Abu Abdillah (as), who has said the following: "Certain angels of heaven look at one, two or three people on earth speak of the excellence and praise of Aal-e-Muhammad (as) and they say, "Look the small number of these people, their enemies so numerous, they still speak of the praise of Aal-e-Muhammad (as)." The Imam then said, "Another group of angels say to them, "It is a favor to them from Allah that He grants to whomever He wants, Allah possesses a great deal of favors."

  6. The following narrations are taken from a chapter of al-Kaafi titled; "Prayers to be performed upon the Naasibi.. enemies of the AhlulBait (as)" عدة من أصحابنا، عن سهل بن زياد، وعلي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه جميعا، عن ابن محبوب، عن زياد بن عيسى، عن عامر بن السمط، عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) أن رجلا من المنافقين مات فخرج الحسين بن علي صلوات الله عليهما يمشي معه فلقيه مولى له، فقال له الحسين (عليه السلام): أين تذهب يافلان؟ قال: فقال له مولاه: أفر من جنازة هذا المنافق أن اصلي عليها، فقال له الحسين (عليه السلام): انظر أن تقوم على يميني فما تسمعني أقول فقل مثله، فلما أن كبر عليه وليه قال الحسين (عليه السلام): " الله اكبر اللهم العن فلانا عبدك ألف لعنة مؤتلفة غير مختلفة، اللهم اخز عبدك في عبادك وبلادك وأصله حر نارك وأذقه أشد عذابك فإنه كان يتولى أعداءك ويعادي أولياك، ويبغض أهل بيت نبيك صلى الله عليه وآله A number of our companions, from Sahl bin Ziad, from Ali bin Ibraheem, from his father, from Ibn Mahboob, from Ziad bin Isa, from Aamir bin Samth, from Abi Abdillah (as): "A man from the hypocrites died and Imam Husain (as) walked along with him (i.e. in his funeral) and Imam (as) met his friend. Imam Husain (as) said to him, "Where are you going? O' so and so". He said to Imam Husain (as), "I am running away from performing the funeral prayers of this hypocrite." Imam Husian (as) said to him, "Look and stand to the right of Me. And you say the same thing what you hear Me say." So when the guardian of the dead person said Takbeer (for the funeral prayers), Imam Husain (as) said, "Allah is great. O'Allah curse so-and-so slave of yours, a thousand curses, combined without any difference. O'Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, disgrace this slave of yours among your slaves and in your cities and put him in the heat of your fire and make him taste your severe punishment. Because He used to Love your enemies and was hostile to your friends. And had hatred with the AhlulBait (as) of your Prophet (saww)." [source: Al-Kafi, Vol.3, Pg. 189, Hadees. 2] علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن حماد، عن الحلبي، عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: إذا صليت على عدو الله فقل: " اللهم إن فلانا لا نعلم منه إلا أنه عدو لك ولرسولك، اللهم فاحش قبره نارا واحش جوفه نارا وعجل به إلى النار فإنه كان يتولى أعداءك ويعادي أولياءك ويبغض أهل بيت نبيك، اللهم ضيق عليه قبره " فإذا رفع فقل: " اللهم لاترفعه ولا تزكه Ali bin Ibraheem, from his father, from Ibn Abi Umair, from Hammad, from al-Halabi, from Abi Abdillah (as): "When praying upon the enemy of Allah say, "O'Allah, Verily we do not know anything from him except enmity towards You and towards Your Prophet. O'Allah, Fill his grave with fire and fill this abdomen with fire and make him move quickly towards the fire. Because he befriended your enemies and had enmity with your friends and had hatred with the AhlulBait (as) of Your Prophet (saww). O'Allah, Narrow down his grave upon him." Then when you stand up say, "O'Allah do not raise him and do not cleanse him" [source: Al-Kafi, Vol.3, Pg. 189, Hadees. 4]Narration is Hasan as per the chain of narrators. See Mirat al-Uqool by Allama Majlisi, Vol. 14, Pg. 77 علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن حماد بن عثمان، عن الحلبي، عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: لما مات عبدالله بن ابي بن سلول حضر النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) جنازته فقال عمر لرسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): يارسول الله ألم ينهك الله أن تقوم على قبره ؟ فسكت، فقال: يارسول الله ألم ينهك الله أن تقوم على قبره؟ فقال له: ويلك وما يدريك ما قلت إني قلت: " اللهم احش جوفه نارا واملا قبره نارا وأصله نارا " قال أبوعبدالله (عليه السلام): فأبدا من رسول الله ما كان يكره Ali bin Ibraheem, from his father, from Ibn Abi Umair, from Hammad bin Usman, from al-Halabi, from Abi Abdillah (as): "When Abdullah bin Ubay bin salool died, the Prophet (saww) came to his funeral. Umar said to the Prophet (saww), "O' Prophet of Allah, Has not Allah prohibited you to stand at his (abdullah bin Ubay's) grave? The Prophet (saww) kept quiet. Umar said again, "O Prophet of Allah, has not Allah prohibited you to stand at his grave (abdullah bin Ubay's) grave? Prophet (saww) said to Umar, "Woe to you, and what do you understand what I said. Verily I said, "O' Allah, Fill his abdomen with fire and fill his grave with fire and put him in fire." [source: Al-Kafi, Vol.3, Pg. 188, Hadees. 1]Narration is Hasan as per the chain of narrators.

Tell me, why is it that your grandfather Ali - the Commander of the Faithful (s) became the one to divide up Paradise and Hell. What is meant by this? I have thought a lot about this." Then Al-Reza (s) told him, Has it not been narrated by your father, on the authority of your forefathers, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Abbas to have said that he had heard God’s Prophet (s) say, "Liking Ali is the same as faith, and despising him is the same as Kufr (disbelief)." Al-Mamun said, "Yes." Then Al-Reza (s) added, “Therefore, he is the one who divides up Paradise and Hell as it is loving him which equals faith, and despising him which equals atheism.” Then Al-Ma’mun said, "O Abal Hassan (Al-Reza)! May God not let me live after you! I testify that you are the inheritor of the knowledge of God’s Prophet (s)." Abi Salt (al-Harawi) added, "When Al-Reza (s) returned home, I went to see him (s) and said, “O son of God’s Prophet! How nice did you respond to al-Mamun's question!" Al-Reza (s) said, "O Aba Salt! I answered him using the same way that he was reasoning. I heard my father (s) narrate on the authority of his forefathers (s), on the authority of Ali (s) that Gods Prophet (s) told him, "O Ali! You are the one to divide up Paradise and Fire on the Resurrection Day. You will tell the fire, this is for Me (leave it) and this is for You (take it)." [source: Uyun al-Akhbar Al-Reza, Chapter. 32, Hadees. 30] This narration is a great piece of show of Hikmat by Imam Ali bin Musa Al-Reza (as). Such narration can come only from a true successor of Prophet Muhammad (sa). The last piece of narration is in direct conformity with the narration of Prophet Muhammat (saww) as below: قال حدثني المظفر بن محمد الوراق قال حدثنا أبو علي محمد بن همام قال حدثنا أبو سعيد الحسن بن زكريا البصري قال حدثنا عمر بن المختار قال حدثنا أبو محمد البرسي عن النضر بن سويد عن عبد الله بن مسكان عن أبي بصير عن أبي جعفر محمد الباقر عن آبائه ع قال قال رسول الله ص كيف بك يا علي إذا وقفت على شفير جهنم و قد مد الصراط و قيل للناس جوزوا و قلت لجهنم هذا لي و هذا لك فقال علي ع يا رسول الله و من أولئك قال أولئك شيعتك معك حيث كنت http://www.marefateahlebait.com/Hadees-on-marefat/reasons-for-various-things/imam-ali-will-divide-paradise-hell
  8. Below is an authentic Ziyarah of Imam Husain (as): عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ جَدِّهِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ رَاشِدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ ثُوَيْرٍ قَالَ كُنْتُ أَنَا وَ يُونُسُ بْنُ ظَبْيَانَ وَ الْمُفَضَّلُ بْنُ عُمَرَ وَ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ السَّرَّاجُ جُلُوساً عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع وَ كَانَ الْمُتَكَلِّمُ مِنَّا يُونُسَ وَ كَانَ أَكْبَرَنَا سِنّاً فَقَالَ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ إِنِّي أَحْضُرُ مَجْلِسَ هَؤُلَاءِ الْقَوْمِ يَعْنِي وُلْدَ الْعَبَّاسِ فَمَا أَقُولُ فَقَالَ إِذَا حَضَرْتَ فَذَكَرْتَنَا فَقُلِ اللَّهُمَّ أَرِنَا الرَّخَاءَ وَ السُّرُورَ فَإِنَّكَ تَأْتِي عَلَى مَا تُرِيدُ فَقُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ إِنِّي كَثِيراً مَا أَذْكُرُ الْحُسَيْنَ ع فَأَيَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَقُولُ فَقَالَ قُلْ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ تُعِيدُ ذَلِكَ ثَلَاثاً فَإِنَّ السَّلَامَ يَصِلُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ قَرِيبٍ وَ مِنْ بَعِيدٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْحُسَيْنَ ع لَمَّا قَضَى بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَ الْأَرَضُونَ السَّبْعُ وَ مَا فِيهِنَّ وَ مَا بَيْنَهُنَّ وَ مَنْ يَنْقَلِبُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ النَّارِ مِنْ خَلْقِ رَبِّنَا وَ مَا يُرَى وَ مَا لَا يُرَى‏ بَكَى عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْحُسَيْنِ ع إِلَّا ثَلَاثَةَ أَشْيَاءَ لَمْ تَبْكِ عَلَيْهِ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ مَا هَذِهِ الثَّلَاثَةُ الْأَشْيَاءِ قَالَ لَمْ تَبْكِ عَلَيْهِ الْبَصْرَةُ وَ لَا دِمَشْقُ وَ لَا آلُ عُثْمَانَ عَلَيْهِمْ لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ إِنِّي أُرِيدُ أَنْ أَزُورَهُ فَكَيْفَ أَقُولُ وَ كَيْفَ أَصْنَعُ قَالَ إِذَا أَتَيْتَ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَاغْتَسِلْ عَلَى شَاطِئِ الْفُرَاتِ ثُمَّ الْبَسْ ثِيَابَكَ الطَّاهِرَةَ ثُمَّ امْشِ حَافِياً فَإِنَّكَ فِي حَرَمٍ مِنْ حَرَمِ اللَّهِ وَ حَرَمِ رَسُولِهِ وَ عَلَيْكَ بِالتَّكْبِيرِ وَ التَّهْلِيلِ وَ التَّسْبِيحِ وَ التَّحْمِيدِ وَ التَّعْظِيمِ لِلَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ كَثِيراً وَ الصَّلَاةِ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ حَتَّى تَصِيرَ إِلَى بَابِ الْحَيْرِ ثُمَّ تَقُولُ Yunus bin Zibyan asked Imam Sadiq (a.s): “May I be sacrificed on you, what should I say when I attend gatherings of Bani Abbas?” Imam (a.s) replied, “When you attend their gatherings, extol us and then say, ‘O Allah, grant us ease and pleasure.’ Indeed if you do this, you will see that which you want.” I asked, “May I be sacrificed on you, how should I remember Imam Husain (a.s) more? What should I say?” Imam (a.s) replied, “You should repeat three times, “Peace be upon You, Abu Abdillah (as). Indeed salutations reached Imam Husain (a.s) from near and far.” Indeed when Imam Husain (a.s) passed away, the seven heavens, the seven earths, everything within them, everything between them, everyone who moves in Paradise and in Hell from among the creation of our Lord and everything which can be seen and everything which cannot be seen, cried over Abi Abdilah (a.s) except for three things. I asked, “May I be sacrificed on You, what are those three things?” Imam (a.s) replied, “Basra, Damascus and the family of Uthman. Curse of Allah be upon them all” I asked, “May I be sacrificed on You, I want to go to the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (as). How should I perform the Ziyarat and what should I recite?” Imam (a.s) said, “When you go to the Ziyarat of Imam Husain (a.s), perform a Ghusl on the banks of Euphrates and wear your most purified clothes. Then walk barefoot because you are walking in one of the sanctuaries of Allah (swt) and his Messenger (saww). You should recite Takbir and Tahlil and Tasbeeh and Tahmeed exceedingly and glorify and sanctify Allah (swt) more. Invoke blessings on Muhammad (saww) and his Family (a.s) until you arrive at the door of the Holy Shrine. Then recite the following: السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنَ حُجَّتِهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ يَا مَلَائِكَةَ اللَّهِ وَ زُوَّارَ قَبْرِ ابْنِ نَبِيِّ اللَّهِ “Peace be upon You, O Proof of Allah and son of His Proof. Peace be on You, O Allah’s angels who visit the grave of the son of the Prophet of Allah.” “Then take ten steps, stop and say ‘Allahu Akbar’ thirty times. Then walk towards the grave from the direction of the face. Stand with your face towards his face and your back towards Qibla and recite: السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا حُجَّةَ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنَ حُجَّتِهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا قَتِيلَ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنَ قَتِيلِهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ثَارَ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنَ ثَارِهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَتْرَ اللَّهِ الْمَوْتُورَ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ دَمَكَ سَكَنَ فِي الْخُلْدِ وَ اقْشَعَرَّتْ لَهُ أَظِلَّةُ الْعَرْشِ وَ بَكَى لَهُ جَمِيعُ الْخَلَائِقِ وَ بَكَتْ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَ الْأَرَضُونَ السَّبْعُ وَ مَا فِيهِنَّ وَ مَا بَيْنَهُنَّ وَ مَنْ يَتَقَلَّبُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ النَّارِ مِنْ خَلْقِ رَبِّنَا وَ مَا يُرَى وَ مَا لَا يُرَى أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ حُجَّةُ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنُ حُجَّتِهِ وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ قَتِيلُ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنُ قَتِيلِهِ وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ ثَائِرُ اللَّهِ وَ ابْنُ ثَائِرِهِ وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ وَتْرُ اللَّهِ الْمَوْتُورُ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ قَدْ بَلَّغْتَ وَ نَصَحْتَ وَ وَفَيْتَ وَ أَوْفَيْتَ وَ جَاهَدْتَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَ مَضَيْتَ لِلَّذِي كُنْتَ عَلَيْهِ شَهِيداً وَ مُسْتَشْهَداً وَ شَاهِداً وَ مَشْهُوداً أَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ وَ مَوْلَاكَ وَ فِي طَاعَتِكَ وَ الْوَافِدُ إِلَيْكَ أَلْتَمِسُ كَمَالَ الْمَنْزِلَةِ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَ ثَبَاتَ الْقَدَمِ فِي الْهِجْرَةِ إِلَيْكَ وَ السَّبِيلَ الَّذِي لَا يُخْتَلَجُ دُونَكَ مِنَ الدُّخُولِ فِي كَفَالَتِكَ الَّتِي أُمِرْتَ بِهَا مَنْ أَرَادَ اللَّهَ بَدَأَ بِكُمْ بِكُمْ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ الْكَذِبَ وَ بِكُمْ يُبَاعِدُ اللَّهُ الزَّمَانَ الْكَلِبَ وَ بِكُمْ فَتَحَ اللَّهُ وَ بِكُمْ يَخْتِمُ اللَّهُ وَ بِكُمْ يَمْحُو مَا يَشَاءُ وَ بِكُمْ يُثْبِتُ وَ بِكُمْ يَفُكُّ الذُّلَّ مِنْ رِقَابِنَا وَ بِكُمْ يُدْرِكُ اللَّهُ تِرَةَ كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ يُطْلَبُ بِهَا وَ بِكُمْ تُنْبِتُ الْأَرْضُ أَشْجَارَهَا وَ بِكُمْ تُخْرِجُ الْأَشْجَارُ أَثْمَارَهَا وَ بِكُمْ تُنْزِلُ السَّمَاءُ قَطْرَهَا وَ رِزْقَهَا وَ بِكُمْ يَكْشِفُ اللَّهُ الْكَرْبَ وَ بِكُمْ يُنَزِّلُ اللَّهُ الْغَيْثَ وَ بِكُمْ تَسِيخُ الْأَرْضُ الَّتِي تَحْمِلُ أَبْدَانَكُمْ وَ تَسْتَقِرُّ جِبَالُهَا عَنْ مَرَاسِيهَا إِرَادَةُ الرَّبِّ فِي مَقَادِيرِ أُمُورِهِ تَهْبِطُ إِلَيْكُمْ وَ تَصْدُرُ مِنْ بُيُوتِكُمْ وَ الصَّادِرُ عَمَّا فَصَلَ مِنْ أَحْكَامِ الْعِبَادِ لُعِنَتْ أُمَّةٌ قَتَلَتْكُمْ وَ أُمَّةٌ خَالَفَتْكُمْ وَ أُمَّةٌ جَحَدَتْ وَلَايَتَكُمْ وَ أُمَّةٌ ظَاهَرَتْ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ أُمَّةٌ شَهِدَتْ وَ لَمْ تُسْتَشْهَدْ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي جَعَلَ النَّارَ مَثْوَاهُمْ وَ بِئْسَ وِرْدُ الْوَارِدِينَ وَ بِئْسَ الْوِرْدُ الْمَوْرُودُ وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ “Peace be upon You, O Proof of Allah and son of His Proof. Peace be upon You, O the slain one of Allah and the son of His slain one. Peace be on You, O one whose avenger is Allah and the son of the one whose avenger is Allah. Peace be on You, O Allah’s un-avenged one in the heavens and the earth, whose revenge is yet to be taken by Allah. I bear witness that Your blood has lived in eternal paradise, the bearers of the throne trembled because of it and all the creation has wept on it. That the seven heavens, the seven earths, that which is on them and that which is between them, and all the creation of our Lord who move in Paradise and in Hell from among that which can be seen and that which cannot be seen, cried over Your blood.” “I bear witness that You are Allah’s Proof and the son of His Proof. I bear witness that You are the slain one of Allah and son of His slain one. I bear witness that You are the one whose avenger is Allah and the son of the one whose avenger is Allah on earth. I bear witness that You are Allah’s un-avenged one in the heavens and the earth whose revenge is yet to be taken by Allah. I bear witness that You advised the people and announced Allah’s messages. You were devoted and faithful to Allah and You fought in the way of your Lord. I bear witness that You died with insight in the same way as You lived – as a martyr who desired martyrdom and as the witness who was witnessed.” “I am the slave of Allah and your servant who is at your service. I have come to you as a guest to beg for the perfection of my position with Allah and to keep my steps steady in following your way and to beg for the path which does not prevent those who follow it from receiving an assurance from you; an assurance which Allah has ordered you to give. Those who seek Allah, begin with you. Those who seek Allah begin with you. Those who seek Allah begin with you. Allah exposed the lies through you and He keeps the times of affliction away from us through you. Allah started His creation with you and He shall end it with you. And Allah cancels or confirms that which He pleases through you. Allah removes disgrace from us through you and He shall avenge the un-avenged blood of the believers through you. The trees in the earth grow through you and they become fruitful through you. And the skies rain and send down sustenance through you. Allah removes the anguish thorough you and He rains mercy through you. The earth which carries your bodies glorifies Allah through you and it through you that mountains are fixed firmly in the earth. The will of Allah with regard to His destines affairs descends to you and is issues from your houses. In the same way, true and detailed rulings, which govern the people, are issued from your houses.” “Cursed are those who killed you, those who opposed you, those who denied your divine authority, those who supported one another against you, and those who were present but were not martyred with you. Praise be to Allah who made Hell their final destination. What a terrible abode Hell is and what an evil dwelling their dwelling is. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.” Then repeat three times: صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ أَنَا إِلَى اللَّهِ مِمَّنْ خَالَفَكَ بَرِي‏ءٌ “Allah’s blessings be on you, O Aba Abdillah (a.s). I seek Allah’s proximity by being aloof from those who opposed you.” Then move towards the grave of his son, Ali, who is located besides the feet of Imam Husain (a.s) and recite: السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ عَلِيٍّ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا ابْنَ خَدِيجَةَ وَ فَاطِمَةَ “Pease be on you, O son of Allah’s messenger (saww). Peace be on you, O son of Amir Al Momieen (a.s). Peace be on you, O son of Hasan (a.s) and Husain (a.s). Peace be on you, O son of Khadija (s.a) and Fatema (s.a).” Then repeat three times: صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ لَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ أَنَا إِلَى اللَّهِ مِنْهُمْ بَرِي‏ءٌ “Allah’s blessings be on you. Allah’s curse be on those who killed you. I seek Allah’s proximity by being aloof from them.” Then stand up and point to the martyrs, repeating three times: السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ فُزْتُمْ وَ اللَّهِ “Peace be on you, I swear by Allah that you have succeeded.” Then recite: فَلَيْتَ أَنِّي مَعَكُمْ فَأَفُوزَ فَوْزاً عَظِيماً “I wish I was among you to achieve a great victory.” “Then go around the grave and stand behind the grave of Imam Husain (as) and perform six Rakat prayers facing the grave." By doing this your Ziyarat is complete. You can choose to stay there or leave if you want.” [source: Al Kafi, Vol.4 Pg.575 & Kamil Al Ziyarat Pg.198] Narrators are Trustworthy, Hadees is Saheeh (Authentic) أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ - Imami, Trustworthy الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ يَحْيَى - Imami, Weak as per Ibn Gazairi, But Trustworthy as per study by Khoi.

"Imam is born circumcised and is pure and sees from behind just as he can see from the front. And does not have a shadow." "And when the Imam comes on the earth from his mother's womb, keeps his hands on the ground and raises his voice reciting the Shahadatain." "Imam does not get wet dreams. His eyes sleep but his heart does not sleep." "He is a Muhaddass (talk to the angels). And the shield of Prophet Muhammad (saww) fits him." "And has more authority over the people then they themselfs. And is more compassionate on them then their fathers and mothers. And be the most Humble before Allah (swt) then all other men." "And his prayers are accepted, even if he calls upon a rock to be split into two." "And with him is the weapon of the Prophet (saww) and this sword Zulfiqar. And with him is the book in which are the names of his Shias until the day of Resurrection. And with him is the book in which are the names of his enemies until the day of Resurrection." "And with him is the Jaamia. And that is a book 70 cubits long and in that is all what is needed by the children of Adam.

Is it permitted or not that he prostrates upon/on the grave? And is it permitted that when praying near the graves of some of the Imam's (as) that he stands behind the grave and makes the grave (in the direction of) Qibla? Or stands near the head of the grave or near the leg of the grave? And is it permitted or not that he stands in front of the grave and prays and the grave if behind him?" And he recited the letter [reply from the Imam (atfs)] from his copy: [Answer]: "As for prostration upon the grave it is not permissible in naafilah prayers, obligatory prayers, and in ziyaarah. And upon him is the act that he puts his right cheek on the grave. And as for the Prayers, keep the grave of the Imam in front and stand behind it. Its not permissible to pray in front of the grave because for the Imam (as) should not be advanced and (do not)*pray on the left or right side of the grave."

He said, ‘O Amir-ul-Momineen (as), I swear by Allah (swt) I love You and You swear by Allah (swt) that I do not love You, and it is as if You are informing me that You know what is in my soul? Amir-ul-Momineen (as) got angry, and it was a great narrative that came out of Him because of him being angry. He raised His hands towards the sky and said: How can that be, and He is our Lord Blessed and High, Who Created the souls before the bodies by a thousand years, Presented to Us the lover and the hater, for, by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, I did not see you among those that love Us.

  13. (bismillah) Salam. Here are a few narrations reported with Tawaatur (Frequently) which show that Prophet Muhammad (saww) and the Imam's (a.s) don't die like normal humans die and that they can be present in the world even after their death. Narration:1 ÍÏËäÇ ãÚÇæíÉ Èä Íßíã Úä ÇáÍÓíä Èä Úáì ÇáæÔÇ Úä ÇÈì ÇáÍÓä ÇáÑÖÇ Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã ÞÇá ÞÇá áì ÈÎÑÇÓÇä ÑÇíÊ ÑÓæá Çááå Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå åíåäÇ æÇáÊÒãÊå. It has been narrated to us from Muawiya Bin Hakeem, from Al-Husayn Bin Ali Al-Washa, who has said: Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (a.s) said to me in Khurasan, "I saw the Messenger of Allah (saww) over here and offered my Salam to Him." [source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 6, Chapter. 5, Hadees.1] Hadees is Authentic (Saheeh) as per chain of narrators.

It has been narrated to us from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Amaar Bin Marwaan, from Sama’at who said: "I came to Abu Abdullah (a.s) and I was talking to myself when He saw me. He said: ‘What is it with you? Would you like to see Abu Ja’far (a.s) ?" I said, "Yes" He said, "Get up". He made me to enter a room, and there was Abu Ja’far (a.s). He said, "A group of Shiites came to Al-Hassan Bin Ali (a.s) after the killing of Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s) . He (a.s) asked them: 'Would you all recognize Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s) if you were to see Him?" They said, "Yes" Abu Ja’far (a.s) said, "Al-Hassan (a.s) raised the curtain, They all recognized that they were with Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s), they could not deny it, and Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s) said: 'When one of Us is dead, He is not dead, and when one of Us remains, the remaining One is a Proof on you all." [source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 6, Chapter. 5, Hadees.4] The chain of narrators would not be a problem here as there are multiple narrations with the same meaning (Matn) and hence would be accepted due to the Tawaatur (frequency) of the narrations, which prove that the AhlulBait (a.s) do not die like we humans die and they are very much alive. The last part of the above narration is also said by Imam Ali (a.s) in a sermon in Nahjul Balagha.

It has been narrated to me Al-Husayn Bin Muhammad Bin Aamir, from Moala Bin Muhammad Bin Abdullah, from Bashir, from Usman Bin Marwan, from Sama’at Bin Mahran who said: I was with Abu Al-Hassan (as). I extended my sitting with Him. He said, "Would you love to see Abu Abdullah (as)?" I said, "I wish I could, by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì." He said: "Get up and enter into that room." I entered into the room, and there was Abu Abdullah (as) sitting. [source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 6, Chapter. 5, Hadees.8] http://www.marefatea...it-as-don-t-die There are many such narration in Vol. 6 Chapter 5 of "Basaair Al-Darajaat".

  14. قال : حدثنا السعيد الوالد أبو جعفر الطوسي ( رحمه الله ) ، قال : أخبرنا أبو محمد الحسن بن محمد بن يحيى الفحام السامري ، قال : حدثني أبو الحسن محمد بن أحمد بن عبيدالله المنصوري ، قال : حدثنا أبو السري سهل بن يعقوب بن إسحاق الملقب بأبي نؤاس المؤذن في المسجد المعلق في صف شنيف بسامرا ، قال المنصوري : وكان يلقب بأبي نؤاس لأنه كان يتخالع ويطيب مع الناس ويظهر التشيع على الطيبة فيأمن على نفسه ، فلما سمع الامام علي بن محمد لقبني بأبي نؤاس ، قال : يا أبا السري أنت أبو نؤاس الحق ومن تقدمك أبو نؤاس الباطل . قال : وقلت له ذات يوم : يا سيدي قد وقع لي اختيارات الأيام عن سيدنا الصادق ( عليه السلام ) ، مما حدثني به الحسن بن عبد الله بن مطهر ، عن محمد بن سليمان الديلمي ، عن أبيه ، عن سيدنا الصادق ( عليه السلام ) في كل شهر فأعرضه عليك ، فقال لي : افعل . فلما عرضته عليه وصححته قلت له : يا سيدي في أكثر هذه الأيام قواطع عن المقاصد لما ذكر فيها من النحس والمخاوف ، فدلني على الاحتراز من المخاوف فيها ، فانما تدعوني الضرورة إلى التوجه في الحوائج فيها فقال لي : يا سهل ان لشيعتنا بولايتنا عصمة لو سلكوا بها في لجج البحار الغامرة وسباسب البيداء الغامرة ، بين سباع وذئاب واعادي الجن والانس ، لأمنوا من مخاوفهم بولايتهم لنا ، فثق بالله عز وجل واخلص في الولاء لائمتك الطاهرين ، وتوجه حيث شئت واقصد ما شئت ، يا سهل إذا أصبحت وقلت ثلاثا: اصبحت اللهم معتصما بذمامك المنيع الذي لا يطاول ولا يحاول ، من شر كل طارق وغاشم ، من سائر ما خلقت ومن خلقت من خلقك ، الصامت والناطق في جنة من كل مخوف بلباس سابغة ولاء أهل بيت نبيك ، في جنة من كل مخوف محتجزا من كل قاصد لي الى أذية بجدار حصين الاخلاص في الاعتراف بحقهم والتمسك بحبلهم جميعا ، موقنا ان الحق لهم ومعهم وفيهم وبهم أوالي من والوا وأجانب من جانبوا ] فصل على محمد وآل محمد] ، فاعذني اللهم بهم من سوء شر كل ما اتقيته ، يا عظيم حجزة الاعادي عني ببديع السماوات والأرض ، إنا جعلنا من بين ايديهم سدا ومن خلفهم سدا فاغشيناهم فهم لا يبصرون . وقلتها عشاء ثلاثا ، حصلت في حصن من مخاوفك وأمن من محذورك . فإذا أردت التوجه في يوم قد حذرت فيه فقدم امام توجهك الحمد لله رب العالمين ، والمعوذتين ، وآية الكرسي ، وسورة القدر ، وآخر آية من آل عمران ، وقل اللهم بك يصول الصائل وبقدرتك يطول الطائل ، ولا حول لكل ذي حول إلا بك ، ولا قوة يمتارها ذو قوة إلا منك ، بصفوتك من خلقك وخيرتك من بريتك محمد نبيك وعترته وسلالته عليه وعليهم السلام ، صل عليهم واكفني شر هذا اليوم وضره وارزقني خيره ويمنه واقض لي في منصرفاتي بحسن العاقبة وبلوغ المحبة والظفر بالامنية وكفاية الطاغية الغوية وكل ذي قدرة لي على أذية ، حتى أكون في جنة وعصمة من كل بلاء ونقمة ، وابدلني من المخاوف فيه أمنا ومن العوائق فيه يسرا ، حتى لا يصدني صاد عن المراد ولا يحل بي طارق من أذى العباد ، إنك على كل شئ قدير والامور إليك تصير ، يامن ليس كمثله شئ وهو السميع البصير The Knowledgeable scholar Abu Ali Hasan bin Abi Jaafar Al-Tousi narrated from his blessed father Abu Jaafar Mohammad bin Hasan Al-Tousi, from Abu Mohammad Hasan bin Mohammad bin Yahya Al-Fahham, from Abul Hasan Mohammad bin Ahmad bin Ubaidullah Al-Mansouri, from Abu Serri Sahl bin Yaqoub bin I'shaaq known as Abi No'aas who said: I said to Ali bin Mohammad (as), "O my Master, I have heard a hadith from Hasan bin Abdullah Al-Motahhar, from Mohammad bin Sulaymaan Al-Dailami, from his father, from our master, Imam Al-Sadiq (as), about choosing the days of the month for travelling, Can I read it to you, and can you correct me accordingly?" Ali bin Mohammad (as) replied, "Read." So I read the hadith for him and he corrected some of my mistakes. Then I said, "O my master, we are refrained from travelling on most of these days. Can you teach me how to prevent the evil if I do have to travel on one of these days?" Ali bin Mohammad (as) replied: "Our Wilayat Protects our Shia even if they are caught in the waves of the sea or in the darkness of the desert or if they are surrounded by lions, wolves and the enemies from amongst the men and the jinn. Our Shia will be safe with our Wilayat. So entrust Allah and be loyal in your Wilayat of your pure Imams (as), and travel whenever you want and whereever you want." Every morning recite this Dua three times: O Allah! I start my day by taking refuge in your invincible protection, that cannot be postponed nor changed, from the evil of every oppressor, disaster, and anyone You have created or anything that is created from Your creations that speaks or is quiet. I start my day protected from anything that is feared because I believe in the Wilayat of the family of the Prophet (saww). I start my day protected from anyone who intends to harm me with the invincible wall that has been created around me for my loyalty and my asknowledgement of the rights of the family of the Prophet (saww) and for holding on to their rope. O Allah! I am certain that Haqq is for them, it is with them, it is in them, and it is to them. I befriend their friends and I stay away from those whom they abandon. O Allah! Send Your blessings to Mohammad and the family of Mohammad, and protect me from the evil of that which I fear through the the family of the Prophet (saww). O Mighty! Keep the enemies away from me! O Creator of the heavens and the earth! "We have set a barrier in front of them and a barrier behind them and covered them over so that they do not see" [36:9] Imam Ali bin Mohammad (as) continued: Recite this Dua three times in the evening also and you will be protected from whatever you fear and you will be safe from danger. If you have to travel on one of the warned days, do the following before you travel: Say, "Praise is to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds." Then recite Sura Al-Falaq, Al-Nas, Ayatol Kursi, Al-Qadr and the last verse from Aal-e-Imran. Then say, O Allah! Those who seek purification find it with You and receive their strength from Your mighty power. There is no strength except that which is from You and there is no power except that which is from You. I ask you through Your chosen creation and the best of the creation, Mohammad (saww), Your Prophet and his family, to send Your blessings on them and to protect me from any evil or harm on this day, and to sustain me with blessings, a good ending and the granting of my desires. O Allah! Protect me from the evil of the deviating oppressors and anyone else with power who might want to harm me. O Allah! Protect me from any evil or disaster. Change my fear to safety and change my difficulties to ease. O Allah! Protect me from the harm of Your slaves so they do not prevent me from achieving my goals. Verily You have power over all things and all affairs return to You. You are the Lord and there is nothing whatsoever like You. You are All-Hearing, All-Seeing.

  15. Conversation between Imam Ali (as) and Abu Bakr after Abu Bakr refused to return Fadak to Fatema Zehra (sa) فقال أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام يا أبا بكر تقرء كتاب الله؟ قال: نعم. قال: أخبرني عن قول الله عز وجل:" إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا " فيمن زلت فينا أم في غيرنا؟ قال: بل فيكم، قال: فلو أن شهودا شهدوا على فاطمة بنت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله بفاحشة ما كنت صانعا بها؟ قال كنت أقيم عليها الحد، كما أقيمه على نساء المسلمين، قال: إذن كنت عند الله من الكافرين، قال: ولم قال: لأنك رددت شهادة الله لها بالطهارة، وقبلت شهادة الناس عليها، كما رددت حكم الله وحكم رسوله Imam Ali(as): O' Abu Bakr. Have you read the book of Allahسبحانه وتعالى? Abu Bakr(la): Yes. Imam Ali(as): The verse " God desires to keep only the uncleanness away from you O'People of the Family and purifies you a thorough purification" has been send down in our praise or in the praise of others? Abu Bakr(la): Yes, in Your praise. Imam Ali(as): If a witness, witnesses against Janabe Fatima(sa) regarding a bad thing, what will you do in that case? Abu Bakr(la): I will apply the Islamic Had on her(sa) just like its done for other muslim women. Imam Ali(as): In that case you will be among the Kaafir in the sight of Allahسبحانه وتعالى. Abu Bakr(la): No. Imam Ali(as): Because in this case you rejected the declaration of Allah(swt) regarding the Purity of Janabe Fatima(sa) , accepting the declaration of the common people which is like rejecting the order of Allah (swt) and order of Messenger of Allah (saww).

  17. Chapter: 3Verse: 42 وَإِذْ قَالَتِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَا مَرْيَمُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصْطَفَاكِ وَطَهَّرَكِ وَاصْطَفَاكِ عَلَىٰ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ "Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee- chosen thee above the women of all nations." [3:42] وبهذا الاسناد قال : حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني ، قال : حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم ، قال : حدثنا جعفر بن سلمة ، قال : حدثنا إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفي ، عن إبراهيم بن موسى بن اخت الواقدي ، قال : حدثنا أبو قتادة الحراني ، عن عبد الرحمان بن العلا الحضرمي ، عن سعيد بن المسيب ، عن ابن عباس قال : ان رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) كان جالسا ذات يوم وعنده علي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين ( عليهم السلام ) فقال : اللهم إنك تعلم ان هؤلاء أهل بيتي وأكرم الناس علي ، فاحبب من يحبهم وابغض من يبغضهم ووال من والاهم وعاد من عاداهم واعن من أعانهم ، واجعلهم مطهرين من كل رجس معصومين من كل ذنب وأيدهم بروح القدس منك . ثم قال ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : يا علي أنت إمام امتي وخليفتي عليها بعدي وأنت قائد المؤمنين إلى الجنة ، وكأني أنظر الى ابنتي فاطمة قد أقبلت يوم القيامة على نجيب من نور ، عن يمينها سبعون ألف ملك وعن شمالها سبعون ألف ملك وبين يديها سبعون ألف ملك وخلفها سبعون ألف ملك ، تقود مؤمنات امتي إلى الجنة ، فأيما امرأة صلت في اليوم والليلة خمس صلوات وصامت شهر رمضان ، وحجت بيت الحرام وزكت مالها وأطاعت زوجها ووالت عليا بعدي دخلت الجنة بشفاعة ابنتي فاطمة ، وانها سيدة نساء العالمين ، فقيل : يارسول الله هي سيدة نساء عالمها ؟ فقال عليه وآله السلام : ذاك لمريم بنت عمران ، فأما ابنتي فهي سيدة نساء العالمين من الأولين والآخرين ، وانها لتقوم في محرابها فيسلم عليها سبعون ألف ( ملك ) من الملائكة المقربين ، وينادونها بما نادت به الملائكة مريم فيقولون : يا فاطمة ! ان الله اصطفاك وطهرك واصطفاك على نساء العالمين . ثم التفت إلى علي ( عليه السلام ) فقال : يا علي ! ان فاطمة بضعة مني ، ونور عيني وثمرة فؤادي ، يسوؤني ما ساءها ويسرني ما سرها ، وانها أول لحوق يلحقني من أهل بيتي فأحسن إليها بعدي ، واما الحسن والحسين فهما ابناي وريحانتاي وهما سيدا شباب أهل الجنة ، فليكونا عليك كسمعك وبصرك . ثم رفع ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) يديه إلى السماء فقال : اللهم اني اشهد ( ك ) أني محب لمن أحبهم ومبغض لمن أبغضهم ، وسلم لمن سالمهم وحرب لمن حاربهم ، وعدو لمن عاداهم وولي لمن والاهم With the previous chanin of narrators: Ahmed bin Ziyad bin Jaafar Al-Hamdani, from Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim. from Jaafar bin Salmah. from Ibrahim bin Mohammad Al-Thaqafi. from Ibrahim bin Musa. from Abu Qotadah Al-Harrani. from Abdul Rahman bin Ala Al.Hazrami. from Saeed bin Musayeb. from Ibnh Abbas, who said: The Messenger of Allaht (saww) was with Ali, Fatema, Hasan, and Husain (as) one day when he said: O Allah! You know that they are my family and they are the most honourable people in my eyes. O Allah! Love those who love them, and hate those who hate them. Befriend their friends, antagonize those who antagonize them, and support those who support them. O Allah! Purify them from any uncleanliness; make them infallible and support them with the Holy Spirit. Then the Prophet (saww): said: O Ali! You are the Imam of my nation, you are my caliph on my nation after me, and you will lead the believers to Paradise. It is as if l can see my daughter, Fatema, on the Day of Judgement. She will be brought on a platform made of light. There will be seventy thousand angels to her right, seventy thousand angels to her left, seventy thousand angels in front of her, and seventy thousand angels behind her, and she will be leading the (female) believers of my nation to Paradise. Every woman who prays five times a day, fasts in the month of Ramadhan, goes to Elajj, pays Zakaat, obeys her husband, and accepts the Wilayat of Ali after me will enter Paradise with the intercession of my daughter. Fatema is the Master of All of the Worlds' Women. People asked, "Is she the master of the women of her time?" The Prophet (saww) replied replied: "Maryam was the master of the women of her time. My daughter, fatema, is the Master of All of the World's Women from the first to the last. Every time she stands in her mihrab for prayers, seventy thousand high-ranked angels come and say Salaam to her. The angels call out to her, 'O Fatema! "Verily, Allah has chosen you, and purified you, and chosen you above all the women of the worlds" (3:42), which is the same way the angels used to call Maryam. Then the Prophet (saww) looked at Ali and said: O Ali! Fatema is a piece of my flesh, she is the light of my eyes, and she is the apple of my heart. That which saddens her saddens me, and that which pleases her pleases me. She is the first one (from my family) who will join me, so treat her with kindness after me. As for Hasan and Husain, they are my sons and my flowers. They are the Masters of the Youth of Paradise, so treat them like you would treat your eyes and ears. Then the Prophetes raised his hands toward the sky and said: O Allah! I testify that I love those who love them. I hate those who hate them. I am at peace with those who are at peace with them. I fight those who fight them. I am the enemy of their enemies, and I am the friend of their friends.'

When God created Adam, God placed this light in his loins and transferred it through him from one generation to the next generation until it reached the loins of Abdul Mutalib. Then God took it out of Abdul Mutalib's loin; divided it into two parts; placed one part in Abdullah's loins; and placed the other part in Abi Talib’s loins.

By the One who sent Mohammad as a truthful messenger, if Abu Taleb intercedes for every single sinner on the face of the earth, God would accept his intercession! My father is in hell, while his son is the divider of heaven and hell?! By the One who sent Mohammad as a truthful messenger, the light of Abu Taleb outshines the light of all other creatures except for five; the light of Mohammad, Fatima, Hassan, Hussein, and the light of his children; the Imams.

"I heard abu ‘Abd Allah (as) say, ‘Allah has created us from the light of His greatness. Thereafter He shaped our form from a preserved and hidden clay under the Throne. Then He made that light to reside in that clay. We were then a Nooraani (light) creature of the human being species.

He has created the spirits of our Shi‘a from our clay and their bodies from a preserved and hidden clay from below that clay.

O Allah: I thus beg You in the name of them; and I implore You with the imploration of a sinful one who confesses of his guilt, and who has done evil to himself, due to his violations—the past and the present. He thus beseeches You for protection from You up to the place of his grave. O Allah: (please) send blessings upon Muhammad and his Offspring, and include us with his group (on the Resurrection Day)and allow us to dwell in the House of Honor with him, and in the abode of residence. O Allah: as You have conferred upon us with the honor of our recognition of him, (please) confer upon us with the honor of being near to him, and bestow upon us with the bliss of accompanying him and enjoying a close rank to him,and include us with those who submit to him totally, and those who pray (You) for sending blessings upon him whenever they mention him,and also upon all his Successors and Selected Ones, whom are defined by You as twelve persons,being the luminous stars,and the Arguments against all humankind. O Allah: and (please) grant us on this day the best of grants,and make all our prayers on this day responded, in the same way as You gifted al-Husayn to Muhammad: his grandfather, and in the same way as the angels Futrus sought refuge with his (i.e. al-Husayn) cradle we are thus seeking refuge with his tomb after him (i.e. his martyrdom) as we are witnessing the soil of him and expecting his return. Respond to us; O the Lord of the worlds.

  21. كنت جالسا مع العباس بن عبدالمطلب وفريق من عبدالعزى بإزاء بيت الله الحرام إذ أقبلت فاطمة بنت أسد ام أميرالمؤمنين عليه السلام وكانت حاملة به لتسعة أشهر ، وقد أخذها الطلق ، فقالت : رب إني مؤمنة بك وبما جاء من عندك من رسل وكتب ، وإني مصدقة بكلام جدي إبراهيم الخليل ، وإنه بنى البيت العتيق ، فبحق الذي بنى هذا البيت وبحق المولود الذي في بطني لما يسرت علي ولادتي . قال يزيد بن قعنب : فرأينا البيت وقد انفتح عن ظهره ودخلت فاطمة فيه وغابت عن أبصارنا ، والتزق الحائط ، فرمنا أن ينفتح لنا قفل الباب فلم ينفتح ، فعلمنا أن ذلك أمر من أمر الله عزوجل ، ثم خرجت بعد الرابع وبيدها أميرالمؤمنين عليه السلام ثم قالت : إني فضلت على من تقدمني من النساء لان آسية بنت مزاحم عبدت الله عزوجل سرا في موضع لايحب أن يعبدالله فيه إلا اضطرارا ، إن مريم بنت عمران هزت النخلة اليابسة بيدها حتى أكلت منها رطبا جنيا ، وإني دخلت بيت الله الحرام فأكلت من ثمار الجنة وأرواقها ، فلما أردت أن أخرج هتف بي هاتف ، يا فاطمة سميه عليا فهو علي ، والله العلي الاعلى يقول : إني شققت اسمه من اسمي ، وأدبته بأدبي ، ووقفته على غامض علمي ، وهو الذي يكسر الاصنام في بيتي ، وهو الذي يؤذن فوق ظهر بيتي ، ويقدسني ويمجدني ، فطوبى لمن أحبه وأطاعه ، وويل لمن أبغضه وعصاه Narrated from Yazid bin Qaa’nab, who said: I was sitting with Abbas Ibn Abdul Muttallib and a group from Abdul-Ozza by the Kaaba when we saw Fatema bint Asad (sa), mother of the Commander of the Believers (as) came close to the Kaaba. She was nine months pregnant with him and she was in labour. Fatema bint Asad (sa) said: O Allah! I believe in You. I believe in what You sent to Your messengers. I believe in Your books. I believe in the message of my grandfather, Ibrahim Al-Khaleel, and the one who build Your house. I ask You through the right of one who build this house and through the right of the baby that I am carrying to make my labour easy. Then we saw the wall of the Kaaba open from the rear. Fatema bint Asad (sa) entered the Kaaba and she disappeared with the wall closing behind her. We tried to open the door of the Kaaba but failed. We understood that this was a miracle. After four days she came out of the Kaaba with the Commander of the Believers (as) in her arms and said: I have higher status than all off the women before me because Asiya bint Mozahem worshipped Allah secretly in a place that was not recommended to worship Allah except when necessary. Maryam bint Imran shook a dry palm tree and ate from its ripe dates, but I entered the Holy house of Allah and I ate from the food of Paradise. When I wanted to come out, a caller called me and said, “O Fatema! Name him Ali because he is Ali (High) and Allah is Ali Al-A’la (the highest). Allah tells you, ‘I derived his name from My name, I educate him with My manners and I taught him My most obscure knowledge. He is the one that will break the idols in My house, he is the one that will give the Adhan (announcement), sanctifying and glorifying Me on the roof of the Kaaba. Bliss and happiness be on those who love him and follow him and woe unto those hate him and disobey him.” Source: Basharat ul Mustafa Le Shiyyat e Murtuza Hadees.10 / Mani Al Akhbar Pg.62 / Bihar Al Anwar Vol.35 Pg.8 http://www.marefatea...atema-bint-asad
  22. حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الحَسَن بْنِ أَحْمَدِ بْنِ الوَلِيد رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قالَ: حَدَّثَنا مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الحَسَن الصَفَّار، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى، عَنِ الحَسَن النَّضر قالَ: قُلْتُ لِلرِّضا عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ: مَا الْعِلَّةُ فِي التَّكْبِيرِ عَلَى الْمَيِّتِ خَمْسُ تَكْبِيرَاتٍ قُلْتُ رَوَوْا أَنَّهَا قَدِ اشْتُقَّتْ مِنْ خَمْسِ صَلَوَاتٍ فَقَالَ هَذَا ظَاهِرُ الْحَدِيثِ فَأَمَّا بَاطِنُهُ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فَرَضَ عَلَى الْعِبَادِ خَمْسَ فَرَائِضَ الصَّـلاةَ وَالزَّكَـاةَ وَالصِّيَـامَ وَالْحَجَّ وَالْوَلايَةَ فَجَعَلَ لِلْمَيِّتِ مِنْ كُلِّ فَرِيضَـةٍ تَكْبِيرَةً وَاحِدَةً فَمَنْ قَبِلَ الْوَلايَةَ كَبَّرَ خَمْساً وَمَنْ لَمْ يَقْبَلِ الْوَلايَةَ كَبَّرَ أَرْبَعاً فَمِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ تُكَبِّرُونَ خَمْساً وَمَنْ خَالَفَكُمْ يُكَبِّرُ أَرْبَعاً Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Waleed - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan al-Saffar quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn Isa that Al-Hassan al-Nadhr asked Al-Reza (as), "What is the reason they say the phrase God is the Greatest five times over a person’s corpse?" He (as) said, “On the surface it seems that this is because it has been taken from the five daily prayers. However, there is another reason for that. Indeed the Honorable the Exalted God has made it incumbent upon His servants to perform five obligatory deeds: praying, paying the alms-tax, fasting, going on the Hajj pilgrimage, and accepting the Mastery (Wilayah). Therefore, He has established saying God is the Greatest once for each of the obligatory deeds. If he has accepted the Wilayah, then it should be said five times. However, if he has not accepted it, the phrase God is the Greatest should be said only four times. That is why when one of you (the Shiites) die, the phrase is said five times. However, when one who disagrees with you (i.e. is not one of the Shiites) dies, the phrase is said only four times.

  23. Here is a great narration of the knowledge of the Imam's (as) and reason behind the actions of Imam Ali (as), Imam Hasan (as) and Imam Husain (as) against the oppressors (curse be upon them) of their times. What is important to note here is the tone that Imam Baqir (as) uses. مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ ابْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنْ ضُرَيْسٍ الْكُنَاسِيِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع يَقُولُ وَ عِنْدَهُ أُنَاسٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِهِ عَجِبْتُ مِنْ قَوْمٍ يَتَوَلَّوْنَا وَ يَجْعَلُونَا أَئِمَّةً وَ يَصِفُونَ أَنَّ طَاعَتَنَا مُفْتَرَضَةٌ عَلَيْهِمْ كَطَاعَةِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص ثُمَّ يَكْسِرُونَ حُجَّتَهُمْ وَ يَخْصِمُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ بِضَعْفِ قُلُوبِهِمْ فَيَنْقُصُونَا حَقَّنَا وَ يَعِيبُونَ ذَلِكَ عَلَى مَنْ أَعْطَاهُ اللَّهُ بُرْهَانَ حَقِّ مَعْرِفَتِنَا وَ التَّسْلِيمَ لِأَمْرِنَا أَ تَرَوْنَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى افْتَرَضَ طَاعَةَ أَوْلِيَائِهِ عَلَى عِبَادِهِ ثُمَّ يُخْفِي عَنْهُمْ أَخْبَارَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ وَ يَقْطَعُ عَنْهُمْ مَوَادَّ الْعِلْمِ فِيمَا يَرِدُ عَلَيْهِمْ مِمَّا فِيهِ قِوَامُ دِينِهِمْ فَقَالَ لَهُ حُمْرَانُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَ رَأَيْتَ مَا كَانَ مِنْ أَمْرِ قِيَامِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَ الْحَسَنِ وَ الْحُسَيْنِ ع وَ خُرُوجِهِمْ وَ قِيَامِهِمْ بِدِينِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ ذِكْرُهُ وَ مَا أُصِيبُوا مِنْ قَتْلِ الطَّوَاغِيتِ إِيَّاهُمْ وَ الظَّفَرِ بِهِمْ حَتَّى قُتِلُوا وَ غُلِبُوا فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع يَا حُمْرَانُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى قَدْ كَانَ قَدَّرَ ذَلِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَ قَضَاهُ وَ أَمْضَاهُ وَ حَتَمَهُ عَلَى سَبِيلِ الِاخْتِيَارِ ثُمَّ أَجْرَاهُ فَبِتَقَدُّمِ عِلْمٍ إِلَيْهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص قَامَ عَلِيٌّ وَ الْحَسَنُ وَ الْحُسَيْنُ ع وَ بِعِلْمٍ صَمَتَ مَنْ صَمَتَ مِنَّا وَ لَوْ أَنَّهُمْ يَا حُمْرَانُ حَيْثُ نَزَلَ بِهِمْ مَا نَزَلَ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ إِظْهَارِ الطَّوَاغِيتِ عَلَيْهِمْ سَأَلُوا اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ أَنْ يَدْفَعَ عَنْهُمْ ذَلِكَ وَ أَلَحُّوا عَلَيْهِ فِي طَلَبِ إِزَالَةِ مُلْكِ الطَّوَاغِيتِ وَ ذَهَابِ مُلْكِهِمْ إِذاً لَأَجَابَهُمْ وَ دَفَعَ ذَلِكَ عَنْهُمْ ثُمَّ كَانَ انْقِضَاءُ مُدَّةِ الطَّوَاغِيتِ وَ ذَهَابُ مُلْكِهِمْ أَسْرَعَ مِنْ سِلْكٍ مَنْظُومٍ انْقَطَعَ فَتَبَدَّدَ وَ مَا كَانَ ذَلِكَ الَّذِي أَصَابَهُمْ يَا حُمْرَانُ لِذَنْبٍ اقْتَرَفُوهُ وَ لَا لِعُقُوبَةِ مَعْصِيَةٍ خَالَفُوا اللَّهَ فِيهَا وَ لَكِنْ لِمَنَازِلَ وَ كَرَامَةٍ مِنَ اللَّهِ أَرَادَ أَنْ يَبْلُغُوهَا فَلَا تَذْهَبَنَّ بِكَ الْمَذَاهِبُ فِيهِم‏ Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from ibn Ri’ab from Durays al-Kunasi who has said that he heard abu Ja‘far (as) the following to an audience of his companions. "What an strange case is the case with a group of followers! They acknowledge us as the Divine authority over themselves, accept us as their Imam and say that obedience to us is obligatory just as is the case with the Messenger of Allah. They then destroy the veracity of their belief as such and dispute against their own selves due to weakness of their hearts. They then diminish our right and blame those whom Allah has granted evidence to know us as it should be and the (ability) to submit themselves to our Divine authority. Do you not consider that how would Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, make it obligatory to obey those who possess Divine authority over his servants and then hide from them (people who possess Divine authority) `the new of the heaves and the earth? How would He cut them off of the sources of knowledge that might come to them to maintain their religion?" Humran then said to the Imam (as), "May Allah, take my soul in service for your cause, how would you explain the case of the uprising of Ali ibn abu Talib, al-Hassan and al-Husayn (as)? They came out and rose up for the cause of Allah, Whose name is so Majestic. How much they suffered and how mercilessly were they murdered at the hands of the rebels? They were defeated, murdered and over powered." Abu Ja‘far (as) then said, "O Humran, Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, had determined it on them. He had decreed, approved and made it unavoidable though the voluntary manner. He then allowed to take place. It, thus, happened with a pre-existing knowledge that had come to them from the Messenger of Allah. Ali, al-Hassan and al-Husayn (as) rose up for the cause of Allah with full knowledge of the consequences and remained silent from us those who remained silent. Had they, O Humran, when facing what Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, made them to face and suffer defeat at the hands of the rebels (apparent), asked Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, to remove their suffering and would implore Him to destroy the government and kingdom of the rebels He would have answered their prayers and would grant them relief. In such case the destruction of the governments of the rebels and the ending of their time would take place quicker than the dispersal under a great pressure, of beads threaded together. The suffering, O Humran, that befell them, was not because of the sins that they might have committed or the punishment for their opposition to Allah. It was because of the high marvellous position that Allah had prepared and wanted them to reach. Do not let people’s opinions take you away from the right path."

"Once I went to see Abu Ja‘far (as) and asked him, "Are you the heirs of the Messenger of Allah?" He said, "Yes, we are his heirs." I then asked, "Was the Messenger of Allah the heir of the prophets and knew all that they knew?" He said to me, "Yes, it is true." I then asked, "Do you have the power to bring the dead back to life and cure the lepers, and the blind?" He said, "Yes, we do have such powers by the permission of Allah." Then he said to me, "Come closer to me, O Abu Muhammad." I went closer to him and he rubbed my face and my eyes and I saw the sun, the skies, the earth, the houses and all things in the town. Then he said to me, "Do you like to live this way and will have what others have and be responsible for whatever they will be held responsible on the Day of Judgment or like to live as before and will have paradise purely?" I said, "I would like to live as I lived before." He rubbed my eyes and I found myself as before." The narrator has said that he told it to ibn abu ‘Umayr who said, "I testify that this is true just as the day is true."

"The pious servant of Allah passed in Mina by a woman who was weeping and her children around her also were weeping because her cow was dead. He went close to her and asked, "What has caused you to weep O slave of Allah?" She said, "O servant of Allah, we have orphan children. Our cow that was the means for our living has died and we are left without any means of living." He said, "Will you be happy if I will bring your cow back to life?" She was just inspired to say, "Yes, O servant of Allah I will be very happy." He stepped aside and said two Rak‘at prayers. He then raised his hands and gently moved his lips. He then stood up and called the cow to get up. He pushed the cow with his foot or a staff and she was up straight and standing. When the woman looked at the cow she cried and said, "Jesus, son of Mary, I swear by the Lord of the Ka‘ba (he is Jesus)." Many people gathered around and he disappeared among them and went."
