Prophet Hazrat Lut (A.S.) and Hud (A.S.)

The Holy Quran presented by the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad SAVA mentioned the Ugly practises, the details of the prophet Lut’s a.s people, the character of the wives of Nuh a.s and Lut a.s living with their pious and godly husband and the torment of God’s wrath for the idolaters.

Imam Mahdi (A.J.)

Now that we have come to the prophecies about the advent of Imam Mahdi (a.j.) and Prophet Jesus, son 'of Mary (a.s.), it is advisable to describe these subjects in some detail, because Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani claimed not only to be a prophet but also to be Imam Mahdi (a.j.) and Jesus - thus giving the world another example of 3-in-1 identities.

An Outline of Governance from a Qur'anic Perspective

This paper is an attempt to partially delineate the salient features of Shi'ite political thought. It seeks to clarify that Islam is an all-embracing religion consisting of a set of laws and injunctions which are requisites for the establishment of an ideal society. The paper presents a brief discussion about governance during the period of occultation of the twelfth Imam, the role of the supreme Leader and the essential qualifications for administrators of the law, especially for the one at the top of the pyramid of power.

Imam Jafar al-Sadiq's Attitudes With Al-Mansur And His Governors

Allah, the Exalted, granted ahl at Bayt many outstamerits. Wisdom was among them. You maybe astonished at the attitudes of al- Sadiq towards al- Mansür and his governors because he sometimes used soft words and spared no effort to justifa’ his innocence and sometimes faced them with intensity and violence, admitting nothing even though his attitude would make them angry.

The Piety and Devotedness of Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (A.S)

The piety and abstemiousness is the standard of the man’s value. Holy Quran considers all the people as equal, except for those who are decorated with the ornament of piety.

The Importance of Seizing the Opportunities of life (Part 2)

Imam Sadjad (A.S) said: “How poor son of Adam is! Every day, he is inflicted with three misfortunes. Nevertheless, he does learn lessons from any. Had he learnt a lesson, all the misfortunes of this worldly life would have been easy in his sight. The first misfortune is that the day which comes upon him decreases his age. If a decrease occurs to his wealth, he will become so depressed, while he can cover the decrease of wealth,

The Importance of Seizing the Opportunities of life (Part 1)

If man compares all desires and pleasures of this life to his age, he will find that the latter is more precious. He will also discover that nothing at all can come to the value of his age, since the pleasures of this world can be regained, while the lifetime cannot be elongated or extended to a single moment:

Understand the Greatness of the Night and Day of the 27thof Rajab

The most important thing that can be done on this day is to Understand the greatness of the night and day of the 27th of Rajab. There is no person greater or higher in rank than the Messenger of Allah (blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny). He is the leader of all of the creations and the noblest and closest of all of them to Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He) and the most beloved of Allah (Glorified and Exalted is He)!

The Use of Reading Questions As a Pedagogical Tool: Fostering an Interrogative, Narrative Approach to Philosophy (1)

The Use of Reading Questions As a Pedagogical Tool: Fostering an Interrogative, Narrative Approach to Philosophy (1)

In this paper I examine the text of the Symposium to illustrate two non-philosophical responses to Socrates' pedagogical provocation. While Apollodorus and Aristodemus, two Socratic disciples, demonstrate their erotic commitment to Socrates, they do not practice philosophy. They manifest their non-philosophical behavior in two ways. First, they idolize and imitate Socrates. Second, they constantly tell stories about Socrates.
