ahlul bayt

Narrated ‘Āishah (radīAllāhu 'anha): "The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “The word 'Ar-Rahm’ (womb) derives its name from 'Ar-Rahmān’ (i.e. Allāh). So whosoever keeps good relations with it (womb i.e. Kith and kin), Allāh will keep good relations with him, and whosoever will sever it (i.e. severs his bonds of Kith and kin) Allāh too will sever His relations with him.”
—  [Sahīh al-Bukhārī Vol. 8, no. 18. Translated by Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khān]

Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa aali Muhammad

My sincerest congratulations to all believers as we celebrate the Birth Anniversary of our Holy Prophet (saww) and our sixth Imam, Imam Jafar ibn Mohammad Al - Sadiq (as).

May we all be blessed to strive in following the Islam brought to us by our Holy Prophet (saww) and that which was continued and perfected by the Ahlul Bayt (as).

May Allah (swt) curse all those who conspired and killed the Holy Prophet (saww) and his Holy Household (as).

Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin wa aali Muhammad

O’ Allah, send blessings upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad.

They always describe the forehead of Zayn al-Abidin AS like that of a camel’s knee due to his constant prostration. But what’s interesting to note is that this wasn’t the only physical transformation that occurred after over a half century of worship. Marks from prostration were found on numerous parts of his body, but the markings from prayer were not fascinating at all. After the imam’s death, his Shi'a found unexplained marks on his back. It was uncovered that the imam had been providing food for a hundred poor families which he would feed in secret during the night. The marks on his back were from the bags of food that he would constantly carry to the Muslims. Every single part of his physical being was honoured by Allah SWT, and the Muslims didn’t even know it until after the man died.

Peace be on you O the son of the Messenger of Allah! Peace be on you O the son of the first of the successors (of the Holy Prophet)! I bear witness that Allah put faith in you like He had full confidence in your father, and that you always looked for and collected good and virtue, lived a highly praiseworthy life and departed from this world a martyr, forsaken and abused; I bear witness that Allah will promptly fulfil the promise, He made to you, and destroy those who left you helpless and punish those who killed you; I bear witness that you kept your promise made with Allah, and strived in His way till what was certain came upon you, so curse of Allah be an those who killed you, curse of Allah be on those who oppressed you, curse of Allah be on the people who came to know and approved.
—  Ziyarat Arbaeen
Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): The Prophet (ﷺ) used to like sweet edible things and honey.

Imam Ja’far Al Saqiq (as) advised to recite this ziyarat on the say of Arba’een.

When Sayeda Zainab (as) and Imam Ali ibn Hussain (as) returned to Karbala with the other prisoners of war from Syria, 40 days after Ashura, they brought with them the heads of the martyrs of the Blessed Household of the Prophet (salawat).

“O Allah, I do ask You to witness for me that I am loyal to those who are loyal to him and enemy of his enemies. I, my father and mother, are at your disposal O the son of the Messenger of Allah. I know and bear witness that you were light in the sublime loins and in the pure wombs, never touched you the dirt of ignorance, nor ever obscurity concealed you in its folds; I bear witness that you are the pillar of deen, support of the Muslims, refuge of the faithful…”
