السَّلآمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ الله وبَرَكآتُه 

Respected Scholars, Brothers and Sisters

We all know that all the masoomeen(asws) are actually one  but are sent in different times and in different bodies perhaps.

As we all love the masoomeen(asws) I would like to request my brothers and sisters as to who do you invoke 'in particular' in the time of a hardship or in the time of Joy? 

If there is any particular masoom(asws) that you are attached to please share it.

Or do you invoke any specific masoom(asws) then also please share it.

Like any masoom(asws) that is your escalation area when you realise that things are now beyond your reach?.

Or do you directly invoke Allah or do you invoked Masoom(asws) and Allah as well?

It could be anything, Looking forward.

Apart from the holy ones, do you approach your father or mother right away when you think their prayers are the most required in times of hardship?

Very difficult question!! While we know "kullona Muhammad (asws)".

Zikr of Imam Ali (asws) and remembering Imam Hussain (asws) is advised... so I remember them by mentioning Imam Ali in majalis &  whenever drink water, whenever in any sort of hardship, I remember Imam Hussain (asws).

Ever since I was 10, It was in that age that I was so interested in islam and what it was about, why I was wearing the hijab etc so I used to do a lot of researching, at that time I used to also go to arabic school every Saturdays and had a very nice teacher who I still see sometimes in majalis.

I remember one time, she took a bottle and out of nowhere she said kids, every time we drink water, we must remember Hussain and say assalmu alaikum ya aba abd Allah. so ever since that moment forth, every time I drink water, I send my sell sallams.

And then one day when I was 13 or 14 I was scrolling through quotes of imam Ali, and read this, 'before you sleep say bismillah 21 times and the angels will protect you throughout the night and for every breath you take while you sleep, a good deed is recorded'. so every single day till now and in sha Allah for the rest of my life, thats what I always do and I remember imam Ali a.s

When I was 17, I was going through some hardship, imam hussein a.s came to me in a dream and let me know it was all going to be okay. So during hardship, I always remember what hussein a.s said to me in that dream and my hardships begin to look small and easy.

Before an exam or a surgery or anything big, I always recite Sarah al Fatiha and gift it to  sayedda Umalbanin A.s, and everything ends up fine.

I have only asked Imam Ridha once a.s for three special things and by the will of Allah swt, I have not been let down.

I guess for me, everyone is special to me in all the same degrees but I invoke them in different times of need. However, the most one I feel connected and attached  to is imam hussein A.s for sure. for so many reasons.

No, not in hardship, because our hardship is always usually the same since we live together and if it isn't the same, I honestly don't approach my parents or tell them because their brains will go haywire haha. But I always ask them to pray for me for my exams or for uni and I always ask them if I do anything wrong, make sure to let them know I love them, and ask for their acceptance above all.

I always ask Allah on behalf of the massoomeen, and then say my needs. I never invoke them alone.

I love all of my Imams, and I often think about Imam Ali(as) most, but the turning point(albeit it was very minute) was Imam Musa Kazim(as). My master his patience, his honor, his tragedy! It brought me closer than ever to my deen. Although Imam Hussein(as) has had the deepest impact along with Imam Ali(as)

my little brother his namesake is also Imam Musa(as) because he was born in his birthday as well.

bismillahirahmaniraheem

labayka Ya Ali(as)!!!

Labayka Ya Musa ibn Ja’far(as)!!!

Labayka Ya Hussein(as)!!!

allahumasalleallah Muhammedin wa ale Muhammed

I'm more connected to Imam Jawad (as) whole of his life despite short span was full of strange incidents that he was shining like a sun among all of them .

For me, it's always been my mum. I used to have trouble believing that if you ask Allah, or the imams for anything, you will be given it. My mum's sickness made me question and doubt that even more. 

Anyway, so I needed the prayers quite recently, I was in a very desperate situation (in my eyes at the time), so I just offered one of the most sincere prayers I've probably offered my whole life lol, which is quite funny, because the thing I wanted to happen, wasn't that much of a big deal, looking back now. My mum is a very staunch believer in having your prayers answered by ahl al bayt and Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, so she did something called "ma3ajiz al zahraa" meaning "miracles of al zahraa". Alot of people have tried it around me, and they've said it worked for them, I was sceptical though. I'm not entirely sure how it works, so this may not be very accurate, but I think you just give some people sweets/desert, and you do it with the intention of "ma3ajiz al zahraa", I'm not sure if you need to do a specific dua for it to work. Long story short, my mum did it on my behalf, once without me even knowing about it. And both times the thing that I really, really, really wanted to happen worked out. I think it only worked out because of Sayyeda Al-Zahraa. So, from that time on, I've mostly just been asking Allah, or any of the masoomeen, usually Imam Hussein, Abal Fadhl Al Abbas though. Sorry if I went too off-topic.

@2Timeless Respected brother

You did not go off-topic. In fact, these topics can be very helpful for muslimeen and momineen in terms of supplication.

We find various ways of seeking help through such topics.

Brother, Send my salam to our mother and if you could ask her the actual procedure and share it here so that benefit can be gained. Do we have to intend in heart that we are giving sweets and we request you to help fulfill so and so thing for us?.

Please confirm.

Usually, Imam e zamana, and Mola Mushkil Kusha (Imam Ali).

Thank you. 

Basically, all you need to do is get a sweet/ desert (it could be a chocolate, cake, fruit etc), recall/retell the previous miracles caused by Fatimah Al Zahra, and then recite the following dua:

allahuma bi haqqi fatimati wa abeeha wa alsirri al mustawdaei beeha illa ma qadhata hajatee (I'm sorry I don't know the translation of it). Throughout this, you have the intention of asking Sayyeda Fatimah Al Zahraa to fulfill your dua. 

I know of a few miracles back in the time of Lady Fatimah, but I don't know of the extent of their reliability. Does anyone have any reliable sources about miracles caused by her (as)? I know of many people (including myself) who have had their prayers answered because of this. You don't even really need to do this specific thing. I forgot to add that my mother also recited hadith al kissaa and had her prayer answered, and even got a message/sign from Lady Fatimah, and this was in relation to her illness at the time. I think as long as you have the aqeeda, and the right intention, all your prayers will be answered inshallah.

I am of those who only supplicate to Allah. I pray and worship only the One who has no partners, the knower of hearts, the hearer of duas, the only One who can help us. I reserve my private and spiritual demands to the only One that Prophet Mohamed and Sayidna Ali prayed to. The One that we have been ordered to pray to for whatever it is we want, including intercession. Whether Allah accepts my prayers to Him is a different thing, which I do not know the answer to. But so far it has worked better than anybody else I see around me subhan Allah! I am feeling in a superior position than most if not all humans and creations! I feel instant work done when asking Allah for anything, and Allah is enough for me as an executor of all affairs. Allah and the prophets and imams have warned us throughout the years of the dangers of associating other with Allah and our duas. I urge all to stop making duas or spiritual invocations, summoning, asking for help from any other than Allah. Allah has promised Hell and a great punishment for those who do it. Let us follow the safe way, the way of the prophet Mohamed wa aali Muhamad. They only invoked and asked Allah for help in their prayers.

I must agree, my mother for me too, I almost worshipped her like a god as a child. I’m sure that feeling of loyalty and love is something given by ahlulbayt. Now I’m trying to make sure I’m not pushed away from the purest of the pure. I want to love them more than my mother...

and I have found the few times I have directly asked sayeda...it without fail always happened...ya sayeda!!!! All you do is give!!! Please let us fulfill your dua...

Since a young age I have always had an attachment to Imam Ali (as) even though I wasn't very religious or practicing. Also my dad use to always tell our family some stories regarding Imam Ali (as) and I found them very inspiring. When I would listen to Dua Kumayl, some of the words use to be soo moving even though as a teenage guy I was very ignorant. For example, I would never forget this phrase in Dua Kumayl:

وَكَم مِّن ثَنَاٍء جَمِيلٍ لَّسْتُ أَهْلاً لَّهُ نَشَرْتَهُ

And how much beautiful praise, for which I was unworthy, You hast spread abroad!

Whenever I am faced with hardship although I directly make a dua to Allah, I tend to remember Imam Ali (as).

I would just listen to this song and tears would flow down my face. This is the reason why I kept my user name as 'ali-fatheroforphans'.

Wa 'alaykum al salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakattahu

Good thread, but I'm going to have to say, respectfully of course, that this saying which I have quoted from your topic, is incorrect. We believe the Infallibles are different personalities, and not one person in essence. Sure, they are all noor (light) created from Allah, but it is not correct to say they are all the same but sent in different times and places. This would be like reincarnation, which is far from the Muslim belief of death and resurrection (we don't believe in reincarnation). They were each different people, and although all infallible, and all WOULD act the same, for example switch al-Hasan (as) & al-Husayn (as) , they would both do the same stuff of course, but they are NOT the same people.

Perhaps you misunderstood him brother. The 12 Imams are the bearers of the "minniyat" of Rasool Allah (S), like a famous hadith mentions "Hussaino minni wa ana min Hussain". That is why it is mentioned in another hadith "Awwalona Muhammad, Awsatona Muhammad wa Aakhirona Muhammad, Kullona Muhammad."

This is not the concept of re-incarnation. Even the Noor of Prophet & Ali (peace & blessings of Allah be upon them) remain united for a period of time & then it splitted.

Salam Alaykoom,

As we all love the masoomeen(asws) I would like to request my brothers and sisters as to who do you invoke 'in particular' in the time of a hardship or in the time of Joy?
Noone in particular.

If there is any particular masoom(asws) that you are attached to please share it.
Definitely Imam Reza (as). A good friend of mine made a du'a at his (as) shrine so i may become Shi'a as i was going through a hard period in my life, at a time when i knew what was right yet didn't want to take a clear stance. There also was one of his (as) sermons about the greatness of Allah (azwj) in particular, for which i am eternally grateful.

Like any masoom(asws) that is your escalation area when you realise that things are now beyond your reach?. Or do you directly invoke Allah or do you invoked Masoom(asws) and Allah as well?
I tend to invoke Allah (azwj). I tend to be more self-conscious about whether my endeavors are enough for my requests to be accepted than thinking about intercession. And more often than not, i find myself lacking.

Apart from the holy ones, do you approach your father or mother right away when you think their prayers are the most required in times of hardship?
No, unfortunately not.

Wa Salam
