Due to their ignorance, some people allege that lamentation for Imam Husain (a.s.) is an innovation (bidat) and is ‘haram’. Some of them knowingly support the propaganda of those who harbour selfish motives against Azadari (mourning) although reason demands …

  

A contemporary scholar Mr Abdul Ghaffar in the daily ‘Hindustan’ dated 21 June 1993 has raised certain objections about the ‘Welcome to Mourning’ (IstiqbaleAza). Perhaps his one-sided study might have plunged him into misunderstandings. Hence it became imperative for us to …

What was the course of Imam Husain’s (a.s) revolution? What reasons prompted him to initiate such a great and unmatched upspring? Did he intended to overthrow the Yazid regime? Did he wish to end the Umayyid dynasty? These and …

  

Let’s deliberate on a few things about our Imam (a.s.). But before we discuss as to what our ‎Imam (a.s.) expects from us, let us understand and comprehend the status of our Imam. Who is ‎he and what is his position? What is the magnitude of his lofty position? Though he is staying on ‎the earth, what is his relation with the skies? What are his powers? Here, our discussion will ‎centre on his authority and power in the sphere of religion rather than his powers in the ‎domain of the universe. We shall initiate our discussion on Imam (a.s.) from the general ‎conversations that people have in their daily lives about him (a.s.).‎

  

How can one eulogize that virtuous soul which not only made itself proximate to the source of light but enveloped its entire self within the shadow of that light. This light is not an ordinary illumination but the pure radiance of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) around which that person would circumambulate until he became the possessor of the salutation of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) to his fifth vicegerent (a.s.).
Yes! Indeed we refer to the exalted and illustrious companion of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), Janabe Jabir Ibne Abdullah Ansari (r.a.). His entire existence was in the service of the Pure Ahle Bait (a.s.).

Occasionally, there are questions that arise in some minds – “Can one seek our desires ‎directly from the Imam?” or “Isn’t the seeking of one’s needs directly from the Imam ‎tantamount to associating aught with Allah and polytheism?” or “Is it not against the concept of ‎monotheism if we ask for our needs directly from Imam (a.s.)?” Here is a review of these ‎questions and also their appropriate replies.‎

  

Every religious action is accompanied by some conditions in order for it to be accepted by Allah. These conditions are related to the one who is performing that action. The word ‘Deen’ refers to these very actions and it implies the rightful religion that is according to the satisfaction of Allah (viz. Islam). In the light of a tradition of Ameerul Momineen (a.s), only good actions performed by a religious person shall be accepted by Allah. In other words, good actions performed by those who are not on the ‘true religion’ will not be accepted.

  

The status and position of a believer before his Imam (a.t.f.s.) is equal to the importance and prominence accorded by the believer to his Imam (a.t.f.s.).’

The reality of human existence can be grasped from the …

  

Allah has always been more merciful to His servants. After their creation, they were not left on their own; rather He sent several guides for their guidance. Even today, despite the occultation of Hazrat Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.), He has ensured that the course of guidance is not disrupted. He has made a provision to the effect that some select persons are associated with the Holy Imam (a.s.) who then provide the essential guidance to the people at large. It will not be an exaggeration to state that these select personalities can easily be regarded as Hazrat Salman (r.a.) and Hazrat Abuzar (r.a.) of the modern world. In this period it is through these chosen men that Allah has conveyed the knowledge of the Holy Imams (a.s.) to the people.

  

If we turn the pages of history we will find numerous examples of personalities who have enlivened Islam through their sacrifices of life and wealth. One such personality is Abu Abdullah Muhammad Haaris Akbari famous as Shaikh Mufeed (r.a.). Mufeed implies the one who benefits others. He was born approximately seven years after the commencement of Ghaibat-e-Kubra in the month of Zilqad, 336 A.H. in the north of Baghdad. Shaikh Mufeed (r.a.) with the help of his vast knowledge passed through various difficulties and welcomed all the obstacles that came his way with a smile. He sipped real recognition from the ocean of Wilayat and quenched the thirst of the followers of Wilayat. He was attached to the infallible Imam (a.s.) and the Shias benefited immensely from him. This man of medium height and wheatish complexion had a ready solution for problems of a religious, ethical and social nature. It is because of this that he had become a thorn in the eyes of his opponents.

  

Various objections have been raised regarding the birth of Hazrat Mahdi (A.T.F.S.). Keeping in mind the necessity for brevity we shall discuss only two types of objections- hoping the sensible people would be able to get the replies to other objections too.
