shia of ali

How beautiful is
The journey of Salah:
When you fall to your lowest 
You draw closest to Allah (96:19).
So fall in your sujood and cry,
As you praise your Lord the Most High.

The servant is nearest to his Lord during prostration, so increase your supplications therein.
 -Prophet Muhammad (saww) [Sahih Muslim]

If a praying person knew to what extent he was surrounded by Allah’s Mercy, he would never raise his head from Prostration.
-Imam Ali (as) [Tasnif al-Ghurar al-Hikam]

I can’t explain how happy the success of Mahershala Ali and Asghar Farhadi at the Oscars makes me as they are both minority sect Muslims (Ali being Ahmadi & Farhafi being Shia). Mahershala Ali is first Muslim actor ever to win an Oscar and he is a minority sect Muslim, which gets persecuted and discriminated against by majority sect Muslims for being so. Asghar Farhadi winning his second Oscar, and boycotting the ceremony in solidarity with Iranian, Syrian, Yemeni, Somali, Libyan, Sudanese, and Iraqi immigrants.

So many majority sect Muslims don’t even consider Ahmadis and Shias to be Muslim, and here we have members of both of these sects making history at the Oscars. Allahumdullilah.

They say that when you enter the vicinity of Karbala al-Muqaddas and first lay eyes upon the Golden Dome overpowering the skyline, you quickly come to notice that one is missing.
Although both the Shrines are built on the same leveled ground and are of the same size, only the dome of Hadhrat Abbas (as) is visible to the guests entering this Holy city.

When the scholars were asked why the dome of Aba Abdillah (as) is seemingly hidden from view, the reply came saying:

“Till today, those who wish to visit their Imam (as) must first go through his guardian, Abal Fadhl al-Abbas (as).”

اَللَّهُمَّ فَاقْبَل عُذْرِي
O Allah, so accept my excuse,

وَارْحَمْ شِدَّةَ ضُرِّي
Have mercy upon the severity of my affliction

وَفُكَّنِي مِنْ شَدِّ وَثَاقِي
And release me from the tightness of my fetters,

يَا رَبِّ ارْحَمْ ضَعْفَ بَدَنِي وَرِقَّةَ جِلْدِي وَدِقَّةَ عَظْمِي
My Lord, have mercy upon the weakness of my body, the thinness of my skin and the frailty of my bones.

–Duaa Kumayl

Verily we are Allah’s and verily unto Him shall we return. (Qur'an 2:156)

Now. the trust has been returned and what had been given has been taken back. As to my grief, it knows no bounds, and as to my nights. they will remain sleepless till Allah chooses for me the house in which you are now residing.

Certainly, your daughter would apprise you of the joining together of your (1) ummah (people) for oppressing her. You ask her in detail and get all the news about the position. This has happened when a long time had not elapsed and your remembrance had not disappeared. My salam (salutation) be on you both, the salam of a grief stricken not a disgusted or hateful person; for if I go away it is not because I am weary (of you), and if I stay it is not due to lack of belief in what Allah has promised the endurers.

Whoever curses the companions or one of them or joins with his curse, or claims that ʿAlī is worthy of worship (a god) or a prophet or that Jibrīl was mistaken, then there is no doubt in his kufr. Nay, there is no doubt in the kufr of he who stops (hesitates) in takfīr of him.
—  Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Sārim Al-Maslūl’Alā Shātim Al-Rasūl (p.591)

Rajab 💜 ☪


. The Holy Prophet () said ❝Rajab is the great month of Allah (ﷻ). No other month equals it in sanctity and merit. During this month fighting against the infidels is prohibited. Indeed Rajab is the month of Allah, Shaban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah. Surely whoever fasts one day in Rajab secures Allah’s greatest pleasure, distances himself from the wrath of Allah and one gate of Hell is closed for him.❞

 

. Imam Kazim (عليه السلام) said ❝For those who fast a day in Rajab, the fire of Hell recedes from them a distance of one year walking and whoever fasts for three days in Rajab is certain to enter Paradise.❞


. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝ Rajab is the month of forgiveness therefore seek much forgiveness during this month.❞

 

. Imam Kazim (عليه السلام) said ❝Rajab is a river in Paradise which is whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. Whoever fasts one day in Rajab will be given a drink from this river.❞

 

. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝Allah (ﷻ)has exalted the month of Rajab and given it a stupendous sanctity taking it upon Himself to honour those who fast it. Whoever fasts a single day of the latter part of Rajab will be saved from the severity of the throes of death, from the horrors encountered after death and the torment of the grave. Whoever fasts two days of the latter part of Rajab will cross over the Sirat (bridge) with ease and whoever fasts for three days will be secure from the terrors and calamities of the Day of greatest terror and will be given immunity from Hell.

 

. The Holy Prophet () said ❝Whoever recites ‘la ilaha il Allah’ 1000 times during the month of Rajab, Almighty Allah (ﷻ) will decide for them 100,000 rewards and award them 100 houses in Paradise.❞


. Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said ❝Whoever recites Surah al-Ikhlas 100 times on a Friday in Rajab will be given such a light that they will enter Paradise.

Each time they try to close the crack on the Ka’bah,
They open for themselves another gate to the fire;
With each merit of Ali’s they try to hide from the world,
It becomes clear who is with the truth and who is the liar.

يَا سَيِّدِي فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أَن لا يَحْجُبَ عَنْكَ دُعَآئِي سُوءُ عَمَلِي وَفِعَاِلي
O my Master! So I ask You by Your might not to let my evil works and acts veil my supplication from You,

وَلا تَفْضَحْنِي بِخَفِيِّ مَا اطَّلَعْتَ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ سِرِّي
And not to disgrace me through the hidden things You know of my secrets

وَلا تُعَاجِلْنِي بِالْعُقُوبَةِ عَلَى مَا عَمِلْتُهُ فِي خَلَوَاتِي
And not to hasten me to punishment for what I have done in private

–Duaa Kumayl
