An excerpt from Sheikh Usama Abdul Ghani’s speech:

There was one time when Sayyed Nasrallah came to Qum. Normally, for the students, that’s like Eid. Sayyed Nasrallah comes, everybody is excited. MashAllah, he’s here. He wants to give a little talk. So we came to a school in Qum called Hujadiyya. So just in case I get questioned by the FBI or CIA or anbody else, I don’t know Sayyed Nasrallah, I’m not one of his boys, he was there, it’s Eid! Anyhow, so he’s giving this lecture and he says a beautiful beautiful hadith which illustrates this point. The Prophet—in this hadith—is talking to Ammar, his companion. He’s telling him that there will be a time after me when there will be a lot of division among the Ummah. They will be taking swords to one another. They will be seeking distance from one another. So what the Prophet did was he gave Ammar the criteria of Haq (truth) and where to be. The Prophet told Ammar: If everyone goes into a valley—all of the people are in one valley—but Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into another Valley, you go into that valley that Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into and leave the people. You follow Ali. And Sayyed Nasrallah—when he was speaking to us—this was years before the victory in Lebanon—he said, “Brothers. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m going to be frank with you. If all the Ullama go into a valley, and Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into a valley, go into the valley that Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into.” Right now, when times are tough, you don’t know where the truth is. Everybody is talking. Just remember the words of the man who is more old school than all of us—Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

shias always talk about how imam sadiq’s (as) imamat was an era of knowledge but they never talk about how he told his companions not to say salam to him in public and how he taught his shia students in private, or how mansur had his house burnt down.. 

Ya Abbas (as), I only hope to reach the level of love you had for your brother, for his imamat and the wilayah of your father.

Ya Abbas you didn’t fail as as-Saqqa, because your death brought your family to Rasoolallah (sawa) who gave his progeny the drink from Kawthar, the sweetest drink in all of the worlds.

jiye jo agle baras ham hain aur yeh gham hai jo chal base toh apna salam e akhir hai on Flickr.

salam khaak nasheeno pa sogwaron ka
ghareeb dete hai pursa tumhare pyaro ka

salam un pa jinhe sharm khaaye jaati hai
khule saron pe aseeri ki khaak aati hai

salam us pa jo zahmat kashe salaasil hai
musibaton may imamat ki pehli manzil hai

salam bhejte hai apni shahzadi par
ke jisko sawnp gaye marte waqt ghar sarwar

musafirat ne jise bebasi ye dikhlayi
nisar kar diye bache na bach saka bhai

aseer ho ke jise shaamiyo ke narghay may
husainiyat hai sikhaana ali ke lehje may

sakina bibi tumhare ghulam haazir hai
bujhe jo pyas to ashkon ke jaam haazir hai

ye sin, ye hashr ye sadmay naye naye bibi
kahan pa baithi ho qaime to jal gaye bibi

pahaar raat bari der hai sawere may
kahan ho shaam-e-ghareeban ke ghup andhere may

zameen garm, yateemi ki sakhtiyan bibi
wo seena jis pa ke soti thi ab kahan bibi

janaab-e-maadar-e-baysheer ko bhi sab ka salam
ajeeb waqt hai kya dein tasalliyon ka payam

abhi kaleje may ek aag si lagi hogi
abhi to godh ki garmi na kam hui hogi

nahin andhere main kuch soojhta kidhar dhundhen
tumhara chaand kahan chhup gaya kidhar dhundhen

na is tarah koi kheti hari bhari ujdi
tumhari maang bhi ujri hai godh bhi ujdi

nahi layeeno may insaan koi khuda hafiz
darinde aur ye be-warisi khuda hafiz

shareek-e-haq darood-o-salam-e-payghambar
salam sayyid-e-lawlaak ke lute ghar par

salam mohsin-e-islam khasta tan laasho
salam tum pe shaeedon ke be kafan laasho

salam tum pe rasool-o-batool ke pyaro
salam mehr-e-shahadat ke gird sayyaro

bache to agle baras ham hain aur ye gham phir hai
Jo chal base to ye apna salaam-e-aakhir hai

MENJAGA NYALA API

Bacaan: Roma 12:9-12
NATS: Biarlah rohmu menyala-nyala (Roma 12:11)

Saat ini tungku perapian yang modern telah menyederhanakan kegiatan yang biasa dilakukan untuk menjaga rumah tetap hangat pada saat musim dingin. Kita dapat dengan mudah mengatur waktu pada termostat, sehingga rumah kita akan tetap hangat ketika kita bangun di pagi hari. Akan tetapi, dahulu, api harus dijaga dengan hati-hati dan persediaan bahan bakarnya harus selalu diperhatikan. Kehabisan bahan bakar bisa menimbulkan akibat yang mematikan.

Begitu pula dengan kehidupan rohani. Apabila kita berpikir bahwa “api rohani” kita dapat dinyalakan dengan mudahnya seperti tungku perapian modern, maka kita mungkin akan kehilangan gairah terhadap Tuhan.

Pada zaman Israel kuno, para imam diperintahkan untuk menjaga agar api di altar tidak padam (Imamat 6:9,12,13). Hal ini membutuhkan kerja keras, tidak hanya masalah mengumpulkan kayu bakar di hutan lebat yang belum pernah dijamah.

Sebagian ahli teologi menganggap api di altar sebagai simbol kobaran penyembahan kita kepada Tuhan. Gairah rohani bukanlah sesuatu yang bisa dianggap enteng atau hal yang wajar. Gairah tersebut akan menjadi dingin apabila kita tidak bisa menyediakan bahan bakarnya.

Rasul Paulus membicarakan kegairahan rohani dalam suratnya yang ditujukan kepada jemaat di Roma (12:1,2,11). Supaya api penyembahan kita tetap berkobar-kobar, kita harus senantiasa bekerja keras mengisi persediaan bahan bakar kita dengan harapan, kesabaran, doa yang tekun, kemurahan hati, keramahan, dan kerendahan hati (ayat 11-16) —JAL
