8th of Rabi al-Akher, Food for Thought

“O You, Whose light covers darkness, O You, by Whose holiness rugged mountain passes are lit, O You, to Whom all the inhabitants of the earth and the heavens submit, O You, to Whom every insolent tyrant surrenders with obedience, O You the Aware of hidden consciences. You are Merciful to everything and Aware of everything, forgive those who repent and follow Your path; protect them from the torment of Fire, give them soon Your victory that You have promised them of and You do not fail the promise! Devastate the people of evil and take them to the worst abode in the worst punishment and the ugliest retreat.”

Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S)'s Traditions and Jurisprudence

Historians agreed unanimously that Imam Abu Muhammad (a.s.) was the richest scientific personality in his talents at his time, and no one was ever comparable to him in virtue and knowledge. Historians said, ‘He was the highest authority for jurisprudents in taking the rulings of the Shariah and the principles of religion. They put forward to him books of Hadith and jurisprudence, and if he permitted these books, they would act according to them. Once, a book written by Ahmad bin Abdullah bin Khanibah was offered to him. He read it and then said to his companions, ‘It is true. Act according to it!’

Message of the Month of Mourning

Message of the Month of Mourning

While the blood of the innocent flows freely on the streets of Bahrain, Yemen, Egypt, and the eastern parts of Saudi Arabia, the regimes in power, which worship at the altar of the Great Satan (the US) and its Zionist brat, have no inhibitions in insulting the memory of the martyrs by celebrating the 1st of Muharram – with pagan-like gaiety reminiscent of the days of Abu Jahal and Abu Sufyan – as the New Year, despite the fact that the migration of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) from Mecca to Medina was on the 1st of Rabi al-Awwal and not on this day.
