From Hajj to Ghadir

Shaikh Tabresi in the most respected book AlEhtejaaj, vol. 1, p. 55, through a chain of noble narrators through Shaikh Toosi through other trusted narrators has narrated from Imam Mohammad Baaqer (PBUH) who has said:

The Rasool [Messenger/Apostle] of Allah intended Hajj from Medina while he had surely conveyed all the Sharaaye’ [precepts] of his people except Hajj and Welaayat [Wilayat, Allah Ordained lordship]; and Jebra’el [Gabriel] (PBUH) descended to him and told him:

Part 2

In another ever-glorious anniversary of Ghadir, once again we are reminded of a very special choosing by Allah, the choosing of the Successors of the very last Prophet and Rasool of Allah, the Awsiya who by the exclusive Grace of Allah, have possessed the Knowledge and Hekmat of all previous Prophets of Allah in their Allah-Expanded chests, those, most loving and benevolent to humankind after Rasool of Allah, those whose hearts have only beaten for the Pleasedness of their Lord, the one and only Allah, …. Let us continue reading together the words of one of those chosen ones, Imam Reda (PBUH), in regard to the sublime reality of the twelve Infallible Imams (PBUT); on the one hand, we are thankful to Allah (SWT)for Enshaa’Allah being blessed with their love and obedience, and on the other hand, we are sorrowful for the heart breaking fact that many have not really realized their Allah-Bestowed position, and that the last of them is still in Occultation partly perhaps because you and we too have not truly realized their status!

Safwaan son of Yahya, one of Saaberi’s companions, has narrated that Aboo-Qarah, a companion of Jaathaliq, wanted him to take him to Imam Red(z)a (PBUH). He said that he requested permission from Imam Reda (PBUH), and the Imam said to bring him to his majlis.

In The Name of Allah, the Sender of the Prophets and the Appointer of the Successors

And with the help of the Kindest Father of this era, The Remained-One by Allah's Grace

Salaam be upon the Rescuer of the distressed,

And upon him, for whom the land of Khoraasaan became Khoraasaan.

Salaam be upon the Light of Fatimah's eye,

the Lady of the women of the worlds.

Salaam be upon the Razawi joyfulness, and the moral principles Allah is pleased with,

And upon the sprung branches of the Ahmadi Tree.

Truth behind 'Lady of Fatima' - Part III

Truth behind ‘Lady of Fatima’

Part 3

It is also thought provoking that although it is quite logical that some Portuguese who had embraced Islam were named Fatima after Hadrat Fatima (PBUH), but ever since the so called apparitions, it has become a popular tradition among Catholics to name their daughters “Fatima”. It makes one wonder why the very first baby who was named Fatima in Portugal after the so called apparitions, was named Fatima? On the one hand, it does not make sense to name one’s child after just the name of a village, and on the other hand, if the lady of apparition was really Mary (Maryam -PBUH-), then it would make sense to name one’s child Mary, not Fatima, considering that Fatima was the name of the daughter of a Prophet whom Catholics do not believe in! It makes one think that perhaps the Lady of apparitions had actually said things which had re-awakened the love and belief in Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) in people’s hearts, thus they named their daughters Fatima; but then as time passed, the facts regarding the alleged event got distorted but the tradition of naming girls Fatima remained as a living sign!

Now let us explore other aspects of the Fatima story; in order to do that understanding sister Lucia’s background may be quite helpful:

It is important to mention that it has been said: “Private revelations do not form part of the deposit of faith of the Catholic Church and its members are not bound to believe in any of them. However, as a matter of prudence, assent would normally be expected of a Catholic based on the discernment of the Church and its judgment that an apparition is worthy of belief … The visions of Fatima were officially declared "worthy of belief" in October 1930 by the Bishop of Leiria-Fátima, on behalf of the Catholic Church.” (The Wikipedia, and from the Encyclopedia Britannica).

Truth behind “Lady of Fatima”

Part 1

In 1917 C.E. in the town of Fatima in Portugal, three shepherd children, ten years old Lúcia Santos (born: March 22nd, 1907) and her cousins, siblings seven and almost nine years old Jacinta (born: March 11, 1910) and Francisco (born: June 11, 1908) Marto, claimed that they had a series of visions of a lady who introduced herself as the Lady of the Prayer Beads; the Christians, since the 13th century C.E., have been calling such beads, the Rosary. Lúcia described seeing a woman "brighter than the sun, shedding rays of light clearer and stronger than a crystal ball filled with the most sparkling water and pierced by the burning rays of the sun."

A peculiar night

A peculiar night

How much longer, should he carry the scar of loneliness?!

How much longer, should he bend over the well and shed tears of loneliness?!

This night is a peculiar night, the night of orphanhood of the entire world …

The father of all ages is going to depart from this world, and will become orphan again, the whole world …

This night in history, is going to be the night of a very lonely migration …

And finally he said, "Swear by the Lord of Ka’bah, I have been delivered and reached Salvation."

The everflow of Divine Knowledge in Ramadan

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Surely We sent It in the Night of Qadr [Measurement, Grandeur, …].

And what makes you comprehend what the Night of Qadr is?

The Night of Qadr is more superior than a thousand months.

The angels and the Rooh [Spirit] descend therein, by the Permission of their Lord, regarding every Amr [Decree, Command, affair, …].

Salaam it is, till the rising of the dawn.

Qur’an, Surah Qadr (97)
