ahlul bayt(as)

Leave aside that which does not concern you and busy yourself with the important work that will save you in the Hereafter.
—  Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) Ghurar al-Hikam p. 766, h. 3

Salaam,

هل صليت على محمد و ال محمد اليوم؟

Did you send blessings on Mohammed & the family of Mohammed today?

*“May God sweeten the mouths of all the Shi'ites with the reappearance of the hidden Imam, peace be upon him. Sweets are foods that are beyond our necessities, but the sweetness of the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, peace be upon him, is of the greatest necessities.”*

*~ Ayatollah Bahjat (rA)*

*It is important to also add to the end of a salawaat,*
*و عجل فرجهم..*
*(Wa 3ajjil farajahom)*
*Meaning, and hasten their (the Prophet & Ahlul Bayt’s) relief, especially the Imam’s relief through the reappearance.*

اللهم صل على محمد و ال محمد *و عجل فرجهم*

Narrated Alī bin Al-Husain (radhiAllāhu ‘anhu):

Safīya, the wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) told me that she went to Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ) to visit him in the mosque while he was in I'tikāf in the last ten days of Ramadān. She had a talk with him for a while, then she got up in order to return home. The Prophet (ﷺ) accompanied her. When they reached the gate of the mosque, opposite the door of Um-Salama, two Ansārī men were passing by and they greeted Allāh’s Apostle (ﷺ). He told them: Do not run away! And said, “She is (my wife) Safīya bint Huyai.” Both of them said, “SubhanAllāh, (How dare we think of any evil) O Allāh’s Apostle!” And they felt it. The Prophet (ﷺ) said (to them), “Shaytān reaches everywhere in the human body as blood reaches in it, (everywhere in one’s body). I was afraid lest Shaytān might insert an evil thought in your minds.”

Narrated ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her): The Prophet (ﷺ) used to like sweet edible things and honey.

Keep yourself hungry, your faces uncovered, your hair not made up, and be sad. Associate less with the people and more with God. Then you may see God through your hearts.

Responsibility in Knowledge and Da’wah

‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (Allāh be pleased with him) said:

“Narrate to people what they can understand; do you want Allāh and His Messenger to be disbelieved?”

[Quoted by Al-Bukhārī, Al-Sahīh, Chapter about a person preferring some people with certain knowledge to the exclusion of others].

Ibn Hajr said in Fath Al-Bārī,

“[In this narration] there is evidence that ambiguous knowledge should not be mentioned amongst the general public.”

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sālih Al-‘Uthaymīn (Allāh have mercy on him) explained this very important and often misunderstood point beautifully. After mentioning the narration of ‘Alī, he states:

“It is therefore an aspect of wisdom in da’wah (calling others to Allāh) that you should not surprise people with things they are not able to comprehend. Rather, you should call them in stages, bit by bit until their minds settle…”

He goes on to say:

“[The statement of ‘Alī] ‘Do you want Allāh and His Messenger to be disbelieved?’ is a rhetorical question, posed as a criticism of such behavior. It means: by narrating to people things they cannot understand do you want Allāh and His Messenger to be disbelieved? This is because in such cases when you say, “Allāh said, and His Messenger said” they will say you have lied if their minds cannot comprehend what you are saying. Here, they are not disbelieving Allāh and His Messenger, but they are disbelieving you because of this speech that you have attributed to Allāh and His Messenger. Thus they will end up disbelieving Allāh and His Messenger – not directly – but by way of the one who transmits this knowledge (i.e. you).

Now if it is said: Should we stop telling people things they cannot understand even if they need to know? The answer is: no, we do not leave this knowledge altogether, but we should tell them in a way that they will be able to understand. This is done by telling them stage by stage, bit by bit until they can accept the speech we want them to know and they can feel comfortable with it. We do not abandon knowledge that people cannot understand and just say ‘this is something they will reject or dislike so we will not speak about it.’

The same is the case with acting upon a Sunnah that people are not used to and which they might find objectionable. We should act by this Sunnah, but only after informing people about it, such that they will be able to accept it and feel comfortable about it.

We learn from this narration (of ‘Alī) that it is important to employ wisdom in calling to Allāh, and that it is incumbent upon anyone who calls to Allāh to consider the level of understanding of those he is inviting, and that he should put everyone in their proper place.”

[Majmū’ Fatāwā Ibn ‘Uthaymīn Vol.10 p. 140]

I asked the Prophet (ﷺ) about one’s looking here and there during the prayer. He replied, “It is what Satan steals from the prayer of any one of you.”

ahlul bayt on my blog

fell in love after reading nahjul balagha

I study comparative madhabs on my own but I’ve always loved and admired Fatima Zahra (a). 

He who marries a woman solely for her beauty will not find anything he likes in her, he who marries her for her wealth will be deprived of it as soon as he marries her, so look to marry women of faith.

The Relationship Between the Noble Wives of the Messenger of Allāh (ﷺ)

It is reported that ‘Ā’ishah (Allāh be pleased with her) said,

“Umm Habibāh (Allāh be pleased with her) called for me on her deathbed and said, 'There used to occur between us the kinds of things that happen between co-wives (al-darā’ir), so may Allāh forgive me and you those things.’

I said, ‘May Allāh forgive you all those things and release you from [all liability] for that.’

She replied, ‘You have made me happy, may Allāh make you happy.’

And she sent for Umm Salamah (Allāh be pleased with her) and said the same things to her.’“

[Source: Imām Al-Dhahābee, Siyar A’laam Al-Nubalaa’, Vol. 2, p. 223]

When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) finished his prayer late in the night, he would see if I was awake and he would talk to me. If I was sleeping, he would awaken me, and pray two rak'ahs, then he would lie down as long as the mu'adhdhin came to him and call him for the dawn prayer. Then he would pray two rak'ahs lightly and come out for prayer.
