Lady Fatima:

Firstly your neighbor and then your home!

It means when you want to do some thing for your family it is morally recommended that you see whether your neighbors have any problem or not? And if yes you should solve their problem before yours.

Have hope in Allah! (Kitab al Kafi):

٢ ـ ابن محبوب ، عن جميل بن صالح ، عن بريد بن معاوية ، عن أبي جعفر عليه‌السلام قال وجدنا في كتاب علي عليه‌السلام أن رسول الله صلى‌الله‌عليه‌وآله قال وهو على منبره والذي لا إله إلا هو ما أعطي مؤمن قط خير الدنيا والآخرة إلا بحسن ظنه بالله ورجائه له وحسن خلقه والكف عن اغتياب المؤمنين والذي لا إله إلا هو لا يعذب الله مؤمنا بعد التوبة والاستغفار إلا بسوء ظنه بالله وتقصيره من رجائه وسوء خلقه واغتيابه للمؤمنين والذي لا إله إلا هو لا يحسن ظن عبد مؤمن بالله إلا كان الله عند ظن عبده المؤمن لأن الله كريم بيده الخيرات يستحيي أن يكون عبده المؤمن قد أحسن به الظن ثم يخلف ظنه ورجاءه فأحسنوا بالله الظن وارغبوا إليه. 

 

(It has been narrated) from Abu Jafar a.s having said: “We found in the book of Ali a.s that:

 Rasullah s.a.w said, and he was upon his pulpit: 

“By the one who there is no god except for him! A believer is not given anything at all from the good of this world and the hereafter except by the goodness of his thoughts in Allah (azwj). and his hopefulness to him and the good manners of his, and the restraint from backbiting the believer.

By the one , there being no God except for him! Allah(azwj) does not punish a believer after the repentance and the seeking of forgiveness except by the evil thoughts of his about Allah (azwj), and his deficiency from his hopefulness , and his evil manners, and his backbiting the believers. 

By the one who there is no God except for him! A believing servant will not have good thoughts about Allah (azwj) except that Allah (azwj) would transpire (matters) as per the goodly thoughts of his believing servant, because Allah (azwj) is benevolent. In his hands are the goodly things. He is too bashful that the believer would happen to have goodly thoughts about him, and then he would oppose his thinking and his hopes. Therefore have goodly thoughts about Allah (azwj) and turn towards him."

Kitab Al Kafi - Volume 2 - Patience

1704–12. Abū ‘Alī al-Ash‘arī (–) al-Ḥasan ibn ‘Alī al-Kūfī (–) al- ‘Abbãs ibn ‘Ãmir (–) al-‘Arzamī that Abū ‘Abdillãh (‘a.s.) said:

"The Messenger of Allãh (ṣ.a.‘a.w.a.w.s.) said: 'The time will come (soon) for people that a kingdom would not be achieved except by murder and insolence, and wealth would not be obtained except by usurpation and greedy. Also, love would not be attained except by taking out the religion (from one's self) and following carnal desire. So, he who comes to live in that time and endured poverty though he is able to obtain wealth; and endure the enmity (of people) though he is able to attract their love, and endure humility though he is able to achieve dignity, Allãh will grant him the reward of fifty honest persons who truly attested me.'

salam,

The Hadith of `Unwan al-Basri from Imam al-Sadiq (as)

Note: The advice of Imam al-Sadiq (as) contained in this long narration is truly remarkable, and it is worth meditating upon as we approach Shahr Ramadan.

 

 

I (`Allamah Majlisi) say: I found it (this narration) in the handwriting of Shaykh al-Baha’i (qs), with the following words: Shaykh Shams al-Din Muhammad ibn Makki has said: I copied it from the handwriting of Shaykh Ahmad al-Farahani (rh), who has narrated from `Unwan al-Basri, who was a grand old shaykh of 94 years, who has said: I would often visit Malik ibn Anas for many years. When Ja`far al-Sadiq (as) came to Madinah, I visited him (frequently) and I loved to learn from him like I would learn from Malik. One day he (as) said: I am a busy man, and besides I need to [say certain dhikrs/litanies] during the day and night. So please do not keep me busy that I miss saying these. You can learn from Malik and you can keep visiting him as you had done this in the past.

 

 

I felt depressed because of what he told me. I left him and thought: Had he found any goodness in me then he would not have treated me in such an unfavorable way, and would not have stopped me from visiting him as many times as I wanted, in order to learn from him.

 

 

I then went to the Masjid of the Prophet (sawa) and offered my salams. The next day I returned to his grave and performed two rak`ats, saying: O Allah, O Allah! Please soften Ja`far’s (as) heart to me, and grant to me from his knowledge so much so that it will ensure I find Your right path. I then returned home with sadness, and stopped visiting Malik, because my heart had drunk of the love of Ja`far (as). After that, I would not leave my house except for the wajib salawat, until finally my patience was reaching its limits.

 

 

When my chest grew constricted with anxiety, I put on my shoes and gown, and decided to visit Ja`far. It was after the `asr prayer. When I arrived at his door, I asked permission to see him. One of his servants came out and asked: What do you want? I said: I would like to give my salams to al-Sharif (as). He said: He is in his maqam.

 

 

I sat next to the door, and shortly thereafter, the servant came out and said: Enter with the blessings of Allah. I went inside and offered him (as) salams, which he requited, and said: Sit, may Allah forgive you. He gazed down calmly for some time, then raised his head and asked: Whose father are you? I said: I am Abu `Abdullah. He (as) said: May Allah make your fatherhood (patronym) firm and grant you success, O Abu `Abdullah. What do you wish to ask of me? I then thought: If nothing else, my visiting and offering him salams, just after his (`asr) salat, his supplication just now is more than enough for me!

 

 

Then he (as) then raised his head and asked: What do you want to ask? I said: I prayed to Allah to turn your heart with kindness to me, and to grant me of your knowledge, and I hope that Allah (t) has answered my prayer about al-Sharif (as). He (as) then said: O Abu `Abdullah, knowledge comes not only through learning. It is a light that falls upon the hearts of those whom Allah (awj) wishes to guide. If you desire knowledge, then first you must find, within your soul, the reality and essence of servanthood, and then seek knowledge through using this fact, and ask Allah to help you understand.

 

 

Then I said: O Sharif (a). He (a) said: (Please,) call me Aba `Abdullah. I then said: O Aba `Abdullah (as), what is the true essence of servant-hood? He (as) said: It is three things: That a man see nothing that Allah has privileged him as being from himself or belonging to him, because slaves own nothing. He must see that all possessions are the belongings of Allah. That he must only use his endowments (from Allah) as Allah commands of him. That he must not be self-reliant in managing and planning his affairs, but rather his whole efforts must be devoted solely to fulfilling his obligations to Allah, and abiding His prohibitions. When a servant realizes that, out of all the things with which Allah has privileged him, not one iota of it belongs to him, then giving charity becomes easy in matters Allah (t) has ordained. When a servant leaves the management of his affairs to his true Master and Planner, then accepting and coping with worldly afflictions becomes easy. When a servant busies himself solely with fulfilling his duties to Allah (t), and abiding His prohibitions, then there can be no room left in him for quarreling and arrogance. When Allah graces His servant with these three things then it becomes easy to cope with worldly difficulties, Shaytan (la), and Allah’s creatures; and consequently neither will he chase the dunyah in order to accumulate wealth and show off, nor will he seek what others possess, so that he might become powerful and increase his (worldly) rank. He no longer fritters away his days in vanity and falsehood. And Allah (t) has said: {This is the abode of the Hereafter which We shall grant to those who do not desire to domineer in the earth nor to cause corruption, and the outcome will be in favour of the Godwary. Whoever brings virtue shall receive [a reward] better than it, but whoever brings vice —those who commit misdeeds shall not be requited except for what they used to do.} (28:83-84).

 

 

I then said: O Aba `Abdullah, advise me. He (as) said: I advise you of nine things, and my advice is for those who wish to travel upon the sirat to Allah (t). And I pray to Allah to grant you tawfiq to make the best use of them. Three are in the matter of disciplining the soul, three are in the matter of forbearance, and three are in the matter of knowledge and learning. You must guard them and never neglect them.

 

 

`Unwan said: I then emptied my heart to make room for them.

 

 

He (as) said: Of the matters of disciplining the soul are that you must never eat unless you are hungry, because to do otherwise creates in one foolishness and weak understanding. You must never eat unless you are hungry, and when you eat, you must eat only what is lawful, and mention the name of Allah. You must recall the words of the Messenger of Allah (sawa): Of the containers that people fill up, the most wicked is one’s stomach. If one must eat, then fill one third of it (the stomach) with food, one third with water, and leave one third empty for breath.

 

 

Of the matters of forbearance are that if one says to you: If you say one word you will hear ten. To this person you must say: If you say ten words then you will not hear even one. If one slanders you, say to them: If you are right, I pray that Allah forgives me, and if you are wrong, I pray that Allah forgives you. If someone threatens you with slanderous words, you must promise him good advice and favors.

 

 

Of the matters of knowledge are that you must always ask the scholars about whatever you do not know; but you must not ask them because simply challenge or test them. You must never act on the basis of your own opinion; but rather you must act with ihtiyat in all affairs where maintaining it (precaution) is possible. You must flee from issuing (your own personal) fatawa just as you flee a lion, and you must never allow your neck to be used as a bridge by others (should they act upon such personal fatawa).

 

 

Now you must take your leave. I have advised you, O Abu `Abdullah, so do not spoil my dhikr of Allah because I am a man who is very protective of himself. May peace be upon those who follow guidance.

Chapter 61  Condemning the world and (adopting) the asceticism in it

ذم الدنيا والزهد فيها

(It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah a.s who said: The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w)  passed by an earless goat who had been thrown upon the rubbish heap, dead. So he asked his companions: ‘How much would this one be worth when alive?’ So they replied: 'Perhaps, if he was alive, it would not equate to a Dirham’. So the Prophet (s.a.w) said: ‘By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! This world is worth less to Allah(azwj) than this goat is upon its owners’.

He said: Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn Al-Husayn ibn Babawayh, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father who reported from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from ‘Ali ibn al-Nu’man, from Amir ibn Ma'qal, from Abu Hamza al-Thumali, that Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir (peace be upon him) said:

"O Abu Hamza, do not place ‘Ali (A.S.) below the level to which Allah has raised him, and do not elevate him above the level where Allah has kept him. It is enough (excellence) for ‘Ali that he is the one who fought the apostates and he is the one who will pair off the inmates of Paradise."

قالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ (صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ): قـارِيَ الْقُرآنِ وَ الْمُسْـتَمِعُ إِلَـيْهِ فِي الأَجْرِ سَواء.

The Messenger of Allah (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) has said: “The one who recites the Qur’an and the one who listens to it have an equal share in the reward.”

You thought you were hidden from Me???

It is narrated from Taliqani from Ali bin Ahmad Kufi from Salman bin Ibrahim Riqqi from Hasan bin Wajna Nasibi that he said:

"I was in my fifty-fourth Hajj and supplicating in prostration under the spout of the Kaaba after Isha prayer. I was lamenting and beseeching when all of a sudden somebody shook me and said: "O Hasan bin Wajna, get up." He said: I got up and saw a slave girl of pale complexion and thin stature. I thought she was more than forty years of age. She began to walk before me. And without asking any questions, I followed her till she reached the house of Her Eminence, Lady Khadija (sa).

There was a room in that house with an open door in the center of the wall. The slave girl went above. I heard a voice calling out: O Hasan, come
up. So I went up and stood at the door of the room and His Eminence, the Master of the Time (a.s.) said: "O Hasan, you thought that you were hidden
from me? By Allah, I had been with you every time you came for Hajj." Then he described my circumstances.
I fell down unconscious on the face. Then I felt a hand touching me; I got up. He said to me: "Stay in Medina at the house of Jafar bin Muhammad
(a.s.) and do not worry about food, water and clothes."
Then he gave me a paper on which were written Dua Faraj and recitations of salutations (salawaat) upon Him. And He said: "Recite this supplication and send salutations (salawaat) upon me in this manner. And do not show this paper to anyone except deserving ones among our Shia. As Allah, the Mighty and Sublime will give you Taufeeq."

I said: "O my master, would I never see you after this?" He replied: "O Hasan, whenever Allah wills, (you will see me)."

Hasan says: After concluding my Hajj, I went to Medina and stayed at the house of Jafar bin Muhammad (a.s.). I always went to the Masjid and except for three things I did not return to the house. For making ablution, rest and sleep, and for meals. When I entered my room at the time of breaking the fast (Iftar) I found a bowl one-fourth filled with water and upon it was kept a loaf of bread and food that I felt like having that day. I consumed it till satiation. Winter clothes arrived in winter and summer clothes in summer. During the day, I used to enter the water for bathing and sprinkle the water in the house also. I used to take the empty cup and fill it with food and whatever exceeded my needs I gave it away to the poor so that those with me may not come to know of my circumstances.

[ 15049 ] 9 ـ علي بن موسى بن طاووس في ( رسالة النجوم ) نقلا من كتاب ( تعبير الرؤيا ) لمحمد بن يعقوب الكليني بإسناده عن محمد بن بسام قال : قال أبو عبد الله ( عليه السلام ) : قوم يقولون : النجوم أصح من الرؤيا ، وذلك هو ، كانت صحيحة حين لم ترد الشمس على يوشع بن نون وعلى أمير المؤمنين ( عليه السلام ) ، فلما رد الله عزوجل الشمس عليهما ضل فيها علماء النجوم ، فمنهم مصيب ومخطئ

'Ali bin Tawus in Risalat al-Nujum, quoting from the book Ta'bir al-Ru'ya of Muhammad bin Ya'qub al-Kulayni, by his chain of narration from Muhammad bin Bisam, he said: Abu 'Abd Allah, peace be upon him, said: People say: the stars are more correct than the dream, and that was correct when the sun had not been brought backwards for Yusha' bin Nun and for the Commander of the Believers, peace be upon him. So when Allah, Glorious and exalted is He, brought the sun back for them, by that He cause the astrologers to err, so some (of the predictions) are correct and some are wrong.
