Jannat al-Baqi Cemetery in the Holy City of Madinah

Jannat al-Baqi Cemetery in the Holy City of Madinah

Jannat-al-Baqi is the famous burial place of great personalities without whom the history of Islam is incomplete, in fact, some of them wrote the history of Islam with their deeds and achievements. The Prophet's companion Usman bin Mazoon was the first companion to be buried there on instructions by the Prophet (SA). The Prophet's son, Ibrahim, who died in infancy (and was very dear to the Prophet) was also buried there. Then the Prophet's beloved grandson Hazrat Imam Hasan (AS), was also laid to rest in al-Baqi. Al-Baqi has the graves of three more stars of the Prophet's family, his grandsons, Hazrat Ali ibn Imam Husain, Hazrat Muhammad Baqir ibn Ali ibn Imam Hussain, and Hazrat Jafar Sadiq ibn Muhammad Baqir ibn Ali ibn Imam Hussain.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is the “Seal of Prophecy” What is meant by necessary is that whoever joins the ranks of the Muslims must understand that all Muslims believe this and that this is among their decisive beliefs. That is, just as those who have deImam Ali (A.S.)ngs with Muslims know that they emphasize the principle of unity, they must also know that the seal of the prophethood by the Prophet of Islam is also agreed to by all and there is no group of Muslims who are in anticipation of the coming of another prophet.

1st Day of the month of Safar (Entry of the Household (Ahlulbayt a.s.) into Syria)

1st Day of the month of Safar (Entry of the Household (Ahlulbayt a.s.) into Syria) The author of Kamile Bahai relates the narration of Sahl bin Sa'ad briefly and says that he said, that I saw the heads mounted upon the lances while the head of Abbas bin Ali (a.s) was in the forefront. The head of Imam Husain (a.s) followed them while the women of the Prophet's family were behind the head. The head displayed magnificent awe while light emanated from it. A round beard, which had a few white hair in it and was dyed with Wasmah, seemed very much attractive. His eyes were large and dark, and eyebrows were joined together. His forehead was wide, nose long, while his lips were smiling raised towards the heavens, and his eyes were gazed towards the horizon. The wind was whirling his beard towards the right and left and it was as if he was the Commander of the faithful (Ali).

The Glorious Qur'an and the Holy Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) cannot be separated from each other

The Glorious Qur'an and the Holy Ahlul Bayt (A.S.) cannot be separated from each other Among the arguments put forward from the Ahl' ul-Sunnah to justify the adallah (justice) of the sahaba is that they complied the Qur'an. To question their trustworthiness is to question the authenticity of the Qur'an.
