Happy the Birth of Jesus Christ

The following message is written by the Shias to all Christians throughout the world, We are a group of Muslims called Shias.
Of course, we are not ISIS and they are not from us.
Moreover, many of our youth and soldiers are already fighting ISIS.
ISIS are some extremists of course, not Muslims and they just claim to be Muslims.
Unfortunately, they have put the name of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) on their flag.
They suggest to the people around the world that the acts of violence so cruely.
Even though, Prophet Mohammad(pbuh) was so kind and merciful to even the enemies.
We, Shias mourn for the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (the third Shia Imam and son of the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad) in the month of Muharram every year. And of course, Shia religious leaders and noble scholars does not even approve the actions of afew extremists of Shias who hurt themselves at their mourning's ceremonies.
One of the honorable 72 of the best Imam Hussein(as)'s companions was a Christian called Wahab. They were are martyared(killed in the path of God) with thirsty lips in an unfair and unequal war in the desert of Karbala.
❤So they even teared with their swords the throat of the infant and six months of Imam Hussein(as).
And now we see these brutal and inhumane methods of killing and cruely behaviors by ISIS in today's world, too.
Karbala is where each year a large population (over 25 million) in the largest walk-fortieth(Arbaeen Walking) of the biggest event in the history of mankind is the fortieth day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein in Karbala. It delivers this message that:
We believe in the teachings of the holy Bible and it was sent through God before Quran.
And we believe that Jesus Christ(as) will return(reappear) besides Imam Mahdi(aj) for the Justice.
Since we believe that he was God's Prophet sent before Prophet Mohammad(pbuh).
❤Congratulations and Christmas greetings for the birthday of Jesus Christ(as).
And also believe that Jesus (PBUH) without a father and with the breath of God in the life of the Virgin Mary was blown by the right has been born
We invite you dear Christian friend to search about Islam through valid Shia books and don't prejudge about us, please.
With the hope that all justice-loving people live together so peacefully
Please, send this message to other Christian friends around the world, peace be upon all the followers of the Truth. ❤
The bitter events brought about by blind terrorism in France have once again, moved me to speak to you young people. For me, it is unfortunate that such incidents would have to create the framework for a conversation, however the truth is that if painful matters do not create the grounds for finding solutions and mutual consultation, then the damage caused will be multiplied.
The pain of any human being anywhere in the world causes sorrow for a fellow human being. The sight of a child losing his life in the presence of his loved ones, a mother whose joy for her family turns into mourning, a husband who is rushing the lifeless body of his spouse to some place and the spectator who does not know whether he will be seeing the final scene of life- these are scenes that rouse the emotions and feelings of any human being. Anyone who has benefited from affection and humanity is affected and disturbed by witnessing these scenes- whether it occurs in France or in Palestine or Iraq or Lebanon or Syria.
I genuinely believe that it is only you youth who by learning the lessons of today’s hardship, have the power to discover new means for building the future.
Without a doubt, the one-and-a-half billion Muslims also have these feelings and abhor and are revolted by the perpetrators and those responsible for these calamities. The issue, however, is that if today’s pain is not used to build a better and safer future, then it will just turn into bitter and fruitless memories. I genuinely believe that it is only you youth who by learning the lessons of today’s hardship, have the power to discover new means for building the future and who can be barriers in the misguided path that has brought the west to its current impasse.
It is correct that today terrorism is our common worry. However it is necessary for you to know that the insecurity and strain that you experienced during the recent events, differs from the pain that the people of Iraq, Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan have been experiencing for many years, in two significant ways. First, the Islamic world has been the victim of terror and brutality to a larger extent territorially, to greater amount quantitatively and for a longer period in terms of time. Second, that unfortunately this violence has been supported by certain great powers through various methods and effective means.
Today, there are very few people who are uninformed about the role of the United States of America in creating, nurturing and arming al-Qaeda, the Taliban and their inauspicious successors. Besides this direct support, the overt and well-known supporters of takfiri terrorism- despite having the most backward political systems- are standing arrayed as allies of the west while the most pioneering, brightest and most dynamic democrats in the region are suppressed mercilessly. The prejudiced response of the west to the awakening movement in the Islamic world is an illustrative example of the contradictory western policies.
The other side of these contradictory policies is seen in supporting the state terrorism of Israel. The oppressed people of Palestine have experienced the worst kind of terrorism for the last sixty years. If the people of Europe have now taken refuge in their homes for a few days and refrain from being present in busy places- it is decades that a Palestinian family is not secure even in its own home from the Zionist regime’s death and destruction machinery. What kind of atrocious violence today is comparable to that of the settlement constructions of the Zionists regime?
This regime- without ever being seriously and significantly censured by its influential allies or even by the so-called independent international organizations- everyday demolishes the homes of Palestinians and destroys their orchards and farms. This is done without even giving them time to gather their belongings or agricultural products and usually it is done in front of the terrified and tear-filled eyes of women and children who witness the brutal beatings of their family members who in some cases are being dragged away to gruesome torture chambers. In today’s world, do we know of any other violence on this scale and scope and for such an extended period of time?
Shooting down a woman in the middle of the street for the crime of protesting against a soldier who is armed to the teeth- if this is not terrorism, what is? This barbarism, because it is being done by the armed forces of an occupying government, should not be called extremism? Or maybe only because these scenes have been seen repeatedly on television screens for sixty years, they should no longer stir our consciences.
The military invasions of the Islamic world in recent years- with countless victims- are another example of the contradictory logic of the west. The assaulted countries, in addition to the human damage caused, have lost their economic and industrial infrastructure, their movement towards growth and development has been stopped or delayed and in some cases, has been thrown back decades. Despite all this, they are rudely being asked not to see themselves as oppressed. How can a country be turned into ruins, have its cities and towns covered in dust and then be told that it should please not view itself as oppressed? Instead of enticements to not understand and to not mention disasters, would not an honest apology be better? The pain that the Islamic world has suffered in these years from the hypocrisy and duplicity of the invaders is not less than the pain from the material damage.
Dear youth! I have the hope that you- now or in the future- can change this mentality corrupted by duplicity, a mentality whose highest skill is hiding long-term goals and adorning malevolent objectives. In my opinion, the first step in creating security and peace is reforming this violence-breeding mentality. Until double-standards dominate western policies, until terrorism- in the view of its powerful supporters- is divided into good and bad types, and until governmental interests are given precedence over human values and ethics, the roots of violence should not be searched for in other places.
Unfortunately, these roots have taken hold in the depths of western political culture over the course of many years and they have caused a soft and silent invasion. Many countries of the world take pride in their local and national cultures, cultures which through development and regeneration have soundly nurtured human societies for centuries. The Islamic world is not an exception to this. However in the current era, the western world with the use of advanced tools is insisting on the cloning and replication of its culture on a global scale. I consider the imposition of western culture upon other peoples and the trivialization of independent cultures as a form of silent violence and extreme harmfulness.
Humiliating rich cultures and insulting the most honored parts of these, is occurring while the alternative culture being offered in no way has any qualification for being a replacement. For example, the two elements of aggression and moral promiscuity which unfortunately have become the main elements of western culture, has even degraded the position and acceptability of its source region.
So now the question is: are we sinners for not wanting an aggressive, vulgar and fatuous culture? Are we to be blamed for blocking the flood of impropriety that is directed towards our youth in the shape of various forms of quasi-art? I do not deny the importance and value of cultural interaction. Whenever these interactions are conducted in natural circumstances and with respect for the receiving culture, they result in growth, development and richness. On the contrary, inharmonious interactions have been unsuccessful and harmful impositions.
We have to state with full regret that vile groups such as DAESH are the spawn of such ill-fated pairings with imported cultures. If the matter was simply theological, we would have had to witness such phenomena before the colonialist era, yet history shows the contrary. Authoritative historical records clearly show how colonialist confluence of extremist and rejected thoughts in the heart of a Bedouin tribe, planted the seed of extremism in this region. How then is it possible that such garbage as DAESH comes out of one of the most ethical and humane religious schools who as part of its inner core, includes the notion that taking the life of one human being is equivalent to killing the whole humanity?
One has to ask why people who are born in Europe and who have been intellectually and mentally nurtured in that environment are attracted to such groups? Can we really believe that people with only one or two trips to war zones, suddenly become so extreme that they can riddle the bodies of their compatriots with bullets? On this matter, we certainly cannot forget about the effects of a life nurtured in a pathologic culture in a corrupt environment borne out of violence. On this matter, we need complete analyses, analyses that see the hidden and apparent corruptions. Maybe a deep hate- planted in the years of economic and industrial growth and borne out of inequality and possibly legal and structural prejudice- created ideas that every few years appear in a sickening manner.
In any case, you are the ones that have to uncover the apparent layers of your own society and untie and disentangle the knots and resentments. Fissures have to be sealed, not deepened. Hasty reactions is a major mistake when fighting terrorism which only widens the chasms. Any rushed and emotional reaction which would isolate, intimidate and create more anxiety for the Muslim communities living in Europe and America- which are comprised of millions of active and responsible human beings- and which would deprive them of their basic rights more than has already happened and which would drive them away from society- not only will not solve the problem but will increase the chasms and resentments.
Superficial measures and reactions, especially if they take legal forms, will do nothing but increase the current polarizations, open the way for future crises and will result in nothing else. According to reports received, some countries in Europe have issued guidelines encouraging citizens to spy on Muslims. This behavior is unjust and we all know that pursuing injustice has the characteristic of unwanted reversibility. Besides, the Muslims do not deserve such ill-treatment. For centuries, the western world has known Muslims well- the day that westerners were guests in Islamic lands and were attracted to the riches of their hosts and on another day when they were hosts and benefitted from the efforts and thoughts of Muslims- they generally experienced nothing but kindness and forbearance.
Therefore I want you youth to lay the foundations for a correct and honorable interaction with the Islamic world based on correct understanding, deep insight and lessons learned from horrible experiences. In such a case and in the not too distant future, you will witness the edifice built on these firm foundations which creates a shade of confidence and trust which cools the crown of its architect, a warmth of security and peace that it bequests on them and a blaze of hope in a bright future which illuminates the canvass of the earth.
Dear Friend! Do you know Islam and Muhammad? You may have heard many things about Islam and its Prophet from mass media. Most of the time Muslims are depicted as extremists and terrorists and Prophet Muhammad is repeatedly insulted there. It seems that you are logical thinkers who listen to all words in order to select the best. One of the great Islamic leaders, Imam Khamenei, has written a letter to all people who believe in freedom of speech. If you want to hear others you can read this letter. It takes you a few minutes. Please have a look. You can refer to the following link:
A very close discussion with God:
As a youth I had some questions that I asked them from God and got His answers through Quran.

And when My obedient worshippers Ask you[ O, Messenger! ], concerning Me, then[ answer them on My behalf ]:" I[ the Owner of Glory ]am indeed near To them; I respond to the invocation Of the supplicant when he calls on Me, So they should obey My Call and Believe in Me, so that they may be led Aright."(Baghare:186)
Q. 4: Should I despair of your grace, my God?
«وَ لا تَیْأَسُوا مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لا یَیْأَسُ مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الْکافِرُونَ» (یوسف/۸۷)
And do not Despair of Allah's Grace. Verily, no-one despairs from Allah's Grace, save The disbelieving people."(Joseph: 87)
Q. 5: How would your devoted friends be?
«اَلا اِنَّ اَوْلِیاءَ اللَّهِ لاخَوْفٌ عَلَیْهِمْ وَ لا هُمْ یَحْزَنُون»(یونس/۶۲)

Q. 6: My God, what are your orders about the idolaters?
«وَ إِنْ أَحَدٌ مِنَ الْمُشْرِکِینَ اسْتَجارَکَ فَأَجِرْهُ حَتَّى یَسْمَعَ کَلامَ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ أَبْلِغْهُ مَأْمَنَهُ ذلِکَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لا یَعْلَمُونَ»(توبه/۶)
And if any one of the idolaters Seeks refuge in you,[ O, Messenger ]Grant him, so that he may hear The Word of Allah and then escort him To where he can be secured, that is Because they are a people who lack Knowledge[ and their disbelief is due to Their ignorance .(Tube: 6)
Q. 7: Whom would you guide and what are their specifications?
وَ الَّذِینَ اجْتَنَبُوا الطَّاغُوتَ أَنْ یَعْبُدُوها وَ أَنابُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ لَهُمُ الْبُشْرى فَبَشِّرْ عِبادِ/الَّذِینَ یَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقَوْلَ فَیَتَّبِعُونَ أَحْسَنَهُ أُولئِکَ الَّذِینَ هَداهُمُ اللَّهُ وَ أُولئِکَ هُمْ أُولُوا الْأَلْبابِ»(زمر/۱۸-۱۷
Those who avoided worshipping false Deities and turned to Allah, seeking His Forgiveness, for them will be Glad-tidings, so[ O, Messenger ]give The good news to My obedient Worshippers!

The Non-Muslim questions and the answers of Quran (1-10)
Following Imam Khamenei message to the youth in Europe and North America about knowing Islam via Quran, please circulate this method and the content in web. (part one)
(A new method toward knowing more about Quran preferred by young generation)
(A youth or every interrogator asks and God answers via Quran)
Q1: What is the reality of Islam
After sending down the Torah, the Gospel, and other holy books God in fact has split the stone of all divine religions and get the Islam out of it. Actually, Islam is the core of all religions. God, indeed, brings forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living. And through sending down the Quran he, in fact, has refined the non-applicable as well as non-alive part of other holy books. He, then, has kept and completed the remaining alive and applicable parts and sent down a new religion named Islam.
إِنَّ اللَّهَ فالِقُ الْحَبِّ وَ النَّوى یُخْرِجُ الْحَیَّ مِنَ الْمَیِّتِ وَ مُخْرِجُ الْمَیِّتِ مِنَ الْحَیِّ ذلِکُمُ اللَّهُ فَأَنَّى تُؤْفَکُونَ (انعام-95)
It is Allah who caused the seed-grain and the date-stone to split and sprout. He caused the living to issue from the dead, and He is the One to cause the dead to issue from the living. That is Allah: then how are you deluded away from the truth? 95-Anaam (Surah 6)
Q2: Why do many people have not received the truth of Islam
Those who God has led them astray due to their hypocrisy, never find the way.
فَما لَکُمْ فِی الْمُنافِقینَ فِئَتَیْنِ وَ اللَّهُ أَرْکَسَهُمْ بِما کَسَبُوا أَ تُریدُونَ أَنْ تَهْدُوا مَنْ أَضَلَّ اللَّهُ وَ مَنْ یُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَلَنْ تَجِدَ لَهُ سَبیلاً (النساء-88)
Why should you be two groups concerning the hypocrites, while Allah has made them relapse because of their deeds? Do you desire to guide someone Allah has led astray? Whomever Allah leads astray, you will never find any way for him. 88-Nisa (Surah 4)
Q3: What should we do to get out of wrongdoing
We have to pray and ask God to direct us into right way like the prophets and pious servants of God who did the same and were responded by God.
وَ نُوحاً إِذْ نادى مِنْ قَبْلُ فَاسْتَجَبْنا لَهُ فَنَجَّیْناهُ وَ أَهْلَهُ مِنَ الْکَرْبِ الْعَظی (الانبیاء- 76)
(Remember) Noah, when he cried (to Us) aforetime: We listened to his (prayer) and delivered him and his family from great distress. 76- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
وَ أَیُّوبَ إِذْ نادى رَبَّهُ أَنِّی مَسَّنِیَ الضُّرُّ وَ أَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمینَ (الانبیاء- 83)
And (remember) Job, when He cried to his Lord," Truly distress has seized me, but You are the Most Merciful of those that are merciful." 83- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
فَاسْتَجَبْنا لَهُ فَکَشَفْنا ما بِهِ مِنْ ضُرٍّ وَ آتَیْناهُ أَهْلَهُ وَ مِثْلَهُمْ مَعَهُمْ رَحْمَةً مِنْ عِنْدِنا وَ ذِکْرى لِلْعابِدینَ (الانبیاء- 84)
So We listened to him: We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his people to him, and doubled their number, - - as a Grace from Ourselves, and a thing for commemoration, for all who serve Us. 84- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
وَ ذَا النُّونِ إِذْ ذَهَبَ مُغاضِباً فَظَنَّ أَنْ لَنْ نَقْدِرَ عَلَیْهِ فَنادى فِی الظُّلُماتِ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ سُبْحانَکَ إِنِّی کُنْتُ مِنَ الظَّالِمینَ (الانبیاء-87)
And remember Zunnun, when he departed in wrath: He imagined that We had no power over him! But he cried through the depths of darkness," There is no god but You: glory to You: I was indeed wrong!" 87- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
فَاسْتَجَبْنا لَهُ وَ نَجَّیْناهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ وَ کَذلِکَ نُنْجِی الْمُؤْمِنینَ (الانبیاء-88)
So We listened to him: and delivered him from distress: and thus do We deliver those who have faith. 88- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
وَ زَکَرِیَّا إِذْ نادى رَبَّهُ رَبِّ لا تَذَرْنی فَرْداً وَ أَنْتَ خَیْرُ الْوارِثینَ (الانبیاء- 89)
And (remember) Zakariya, when he cried to his Lord:" O my Lord! Leave me not without offspring, though You are the best of inheritors." 89- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
فَاسْتَجَبْنا لَهُ وَ وَهَبْنا لَهُ یَحْیى وَ أَصْلَحْنا لَهُ زَوْجَهُ إِنَّهُمْ کانُوا یُسارِعُونَ فِی الْخَیْراتِ وَ یَدْعُونَنا رَغَباً وَ رَهَباً وَ کانُوا لَنا خاشِعینَ (الانبیاء-90)
So We listened to him: and We granted him John: We cured his wife's (barrenness) for him. These (three) were ever quick in doing in good works; they used to call on Us with yearning and awe, and humble themselves before Us. 90- Anbiaa (Surah 21)
Q4: What is the similarity between Moses (AS) and Prophet Jesus (AS) with Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)
They all have the God in common and all of them are the Lord of the World's messengers.
وَ قالَ مُوسى یا فِرْعَوْنُ إِنِّی رَسُولٌ مِنْ رَبِّ الْعالَمینَ(الاعراف- 104)
Moses said:" O Pharaoh! I am a messenger from the Lord of the Worlds". 104- A'raaf (Surah 7)
قالُوا آمَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعالَمینَ (الاعراف- 121)
Finally, the sorcerers told:" We believe in the Lord of the Worlds- 121- A'raaf (Surah 7)
رَبِّ مُوسى وَ هارُونَ (الاعراف- 122)
" The Lord of Moses and Aaron." 122- A'raaf (Surah 7)
Q5: Who at last confirm the promise of God messengers
God gives life to those who do good deed. He, also, gives them the light to get guided and walk proudly among people.
أَ وَ مَنْ کانَ مَیْتاً فَأَحْیَیْناهُ وَ جَعَلْنا لَهُ نُوراً یَمْشی بِهِ فِی النَّاسِ کَمَنْ مَثَلُهُ فِی الظُّلُماتِ لَیْسَ بِخارِجٍ مِنْها کَذلِکَ زُیِّنَ لِلْکافِرینَ ما کانُوا یَعْمَلُونَ (الانعام- 122)
Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a Light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out? Thus to those without faith their own deeds seem pleasing. 122- Anaam (Surah 6)
Q6: Who does get guided, in fact, and find the right path
Only sincere get guided.
(Iblis) said:" Then, by The Power, I will lead them all astray. 82- Saad (Surah 38)
"Except The Servants amongst them, sincere and purified (by Your Grace)." 83-Saad (Surah 38)
Q7: What testimonies existed to stabilize the legitimacy and rightfulness of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)
Asking for the guidance from Prophet and being responded by him is enough to stabilize the rightfulness of Islam and Prophet (PBUH). It is in this case that you for sure get to water (the truth) rather than the water foam (the vain).
لَهُ دَعْوَةُ الْحَقِّ وَ الَّذینَ یَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ لا یَسْتَجیبُونَ لَهُمْ بِشَیْءٍ إِلاَّ کَباسِطِ کَفَّیْهِ إِلَى الْماءِ لِیَبْلُغَ فاهُ وَ ما هُوَ بِبالِغِهِ وَ ما دُعاءُ الْکافِرینَ إِلاَّ فی ضَلالٍ ( رعد- 14)
To Him is due the true prayer: any others that they call upon besides Him hear them no more than if they were to stretch forth their hands for water to reach their mouths but it reaches them not: for the prayer of those without Faith is nothing but vain prayer. 14- Ra'd (Surah 13)
Q8: What are the characteristics of God's messengers specially Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنینَ رِجالٌ صَدَقُوا ما عاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَیْهِ فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَضى نَحْبَهُ وَ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ یَنْتَظِرُ وَ ما بَدَّلُوا تَبْدیلاً (احزاب-23)
Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have died, and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least. 23- Ahzaab (Surah 33)
Q9: In a nutshell, what does God say the world about Prophet Muhammad
وَ مِنْهُمُ الَّذینَ یُؤْذُونَ النَّبِیَّ وَ یَقُولُونَ هُوَ أُذُنٌ قُلْ أُذُنُ خَیْرٍ لَکُمْ یُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَ یُؤْمِنُ لِلْمُؤْمِنینَ وَ رَحْمَةٌ لِلَّذینَ آمَنُوا مِنْکُمْ وَ الَّذینَ یُؤْذُونَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ لَهُمْ عَذابٌ أَلیمٌ (توبه- 61)
Among them are men who molest the Prophet and say," He is (all) ear." Say," He listens to what is best for you: he believes in Allah, has faith in the Believers, and is a Mercy to those of you who believe." But those who molest the Messenger will have a grievous chastisement. 61- Tawba (Surah 9)
Q10: What will be the end of oppressive states and hired media who does not let the people to perceive the reality and truth of Islam and mission of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
فَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ کَذَبَ عَلَى اللَّهِ وَ کَذَّبَ بِالصِّدْقِ إِذْ جاءَهُ أَ لَیْسَ فی جَهَنَّمَ مَثْوىً لِلْکافِرینَ (زمر-32(
Who, then, dose more wrong than one who utters a lie concerning Allah, and rejects the Truth when it comes to him! Is there not in Hell an abode for the unbelievers? 32- Zumar (Surah 39)
وَ الَّذی جاءَ بِالصِّدْقِ وَ صَدَّقَ بِهِ أُولئِکَ هُمُ الْمُتَّقُونَ (زمر- 33)

My questionsand His answers
(God’s answers through Quran)
Q11: How could we find the truth abouteverything in this world
The truth should be understood through purehearts, so we should go after it firstthrough asking forgiveness from God.
قُل لِّلَّذِینَ ڪَفَرُوٓاْ إِن یَنتَهُواْ یُغۡفَرۡ لَهُم مَّا قَدۡ سَلَفَ وَإِن یَعُودُواْ فَقَدۡ مَضَتۡ سُنَّتُ ٱلۡأَوَّلِینَ (انفال-38)
Quran-(Surah Booty, verse 38)
“Tell those who disbelieve that if they cease (frompersecution of believers) that which is past will be forgiven them; but if theyreturn (thereto) then the example of the men of old hath already gone (beforethem, for a warning).” (38)
Q12: Where isthe truth of everything

Q15: What are the main differences between Islam and the otherreligions?
إِنَّ هَـٰذِهِۦۤ أُمَّتُکُمۡ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ وَأَنَا۟ رَبُّڪُمۡ فَٱعۡبُدُونِ (انبیاء – 92)
إِنَّ هَـٰذِهِۦۤ أُمَّتُکُمۡ أُمَّةً۬ وَٲحِدَةً۬ وَأَنَا۟ رَبُّڪُمۡ فَٱعۡبُدُونِ (انبیاء-93)
فَمَن یَعۡمَلۡ مِنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحَـٰتِ وَهُوَ مُؤۡمِنٌ۬ فَلَا ڪُفۡرَانَ لِسَعۡیِهِۦ وَإِنَّا لَهُ ۥ ڪَـٰتِبُونَ (انبیاء-94)
"Lo! this, your religion(Islam), is one religion, and I am your Lord, so worship Me. (92) Andthey have broken their religion (into fragments) among them, (yet) all arereturning unto Us. (93) Then who so do some good works and is a believer, therewill be no rejection of his effort. Lo! We record (it) for him)". (94)
The non-Muslim questions and the answers
Q 16: Who should we learn the real Islam from?
Differentiating truth from vain, especially in the world today, is faced with different challenges. For instance, to know Islam, besides spreading rumour and lies by the enemies of Islam there is a big challenge named “Muslemin” (Muslims).
A bigger challenge comes to exist, too, when people want to know Islam through mixed behaviour of Muslims. But, Quran learns us the way of knowing Islam:
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِکَ إِلاَّ رِجَالًا نُّوحِی إِلَیْهِمْ فَاسْأَلُواْ أَهْلَ الذِّکْرِ إِن کُنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ ( نحل-43)
بِالْبَیِّنَاتِ وَالزُّبُرِ وَأَنزَلْنَا إِلَیْکَ الذِّکْرَ لِتُبَیِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ مَا نُزِّلَ إِلَیْهِمْ وَلَعَلَّهُمْ یَتَفَکَّرُونَ ( نحل-44)
We never sent but men before you to whom we revealed, ask the people of the remembrance, if you do not know. (- Al Nahl) (Surah 16-verse 43)
(We sent them) with clear signs and the psalms. And we sent down to you the remembrance so that you can make clear to people what has been sent down to them, in order that they reflect. 4- Al Nahl) (Surah 16-verse 44)
Yes, Quran introduces prophet as a best teacher and interpreter of Quran and Islam. He (the Prophet) as well as his traditions (Ahadith), the way of his living, and his true successors are the authentic and genuine references for knowing Islam rather than unaware Muslims who commit crime with the name of Islam.
The non-Moslem questions and the answers of Quran
Q17: Does Islam agree with the commandments of Judaism and Christianity? Is there any similarity between religions commandments
The Quran has referred to the competence of the Prophets in its chapters (surahs) to the extent that God commands Prophet of Islam to follow Quran way. He also brings Moses’ commandments in Quran and named them straight path.
Say, "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited to you. [He commands] that you not associate anything with Him, and to parents, good treatment, and do not kill your children out of poverty; We will provide for you and them. And do not approach immoralities - what is apparent of them and what is concealed. And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden [to be killed] except by [legal] right. This has He instructed you that you may use reason." (151- Al-An’am) (Surah 6)
And do not approach the orphan's property except in a way that is best until he reaches maturity. And give full measure and weight in justice. We do not charge any soul except [with that within] its capacity. And when you testify, be just, even if [it concerns] a near relative. And the covenant of Allah fulfill. This has He instructed you that you may remember. (152- Al-An’am) (Surah 6)
And, [moreover], this is My path, which is straight, so follow it; and do not follow [other] ways, for you will be separated from His way. This has He instructed you that you may become righteous. (153- Al-An’am) (Surah 6)
Yes, these are the life-giving commandments of Prophet Moses (AS) which are emphasized in Quran.
Now You Judge: What is Islam? And who is Muslim?
Whoever follows these commandments is called Muslim and whoever in whatever dress and whatever job does not follow these commandments is not Muslim. Prophet Muhammad stated that there are three things no one (being Muslim or non-Muslim) should leave:
1. Doing good to parents
2. Fulfilling the promise
3. Faithful to the trust
(Nahj-ul-Fasaaha, page 115)
He also mentioned: The more Muslim is the one among you whose morality is the best and understanding of the religion is deeper
Question 18: What were the first words God revealed to Prophet Mohammad(PBUH)?
The first words of God with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH):
اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّکَ الَّذِی خَلَقَ
خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ
اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّکَ الْأَکْرَمُ
الَّذِی عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ
عَلَّمَ الْإِنسَانَ مَا لَمْ یَعْلَمْ
(سوره العلق، آیات 1-5)
Read in the Name of your Lord Who created - He created man from a clot
- Read and your Lord is Most Honorable - Who taught (to write) with
the pen - Taught man what he knew not - (Al-Alagh 1-5) (Surah 96)
After mentioning in these verses the state of creator-hood, divinity,
and creating the best creation in the world, human, God has pointed to
man teaching with pen and the crucial role of knowledge in his life.
Could its reason be anything but the effort of Islam for learning and
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) stated: اطلبوا العلم من المهد الی اللحد
Seek knowledge from cradle to grave.
Also, he mentioned: العلم حیاة الاسلام و عماد الایمان .
Knowledge is the life of Islam and the pillars of faith.
(Nahj-ul-Fesaaha P: 418 tradition no. 4107)
The Holy Quran in most of the verses invites man to thinking about
sky, stars, strange events happening among them, the strong order
directing and managing them, and mediating on earth, seas, and
mountain creation, and etc. as well as reflecting on the surprising
creation of plants plus the life order exists among them, and creation
of man himself besides the mysteries behind his body structure.
The holy book, also, calls man to learning physical science,
mathematics, philosophy, literary arts, and finally all the sciences
available to human thought only if their learning is in favor of human
being and prosperity and happiness of their society.
Yes, the Holy Quran invites man to these sciences in case they act as
a guide toward truth and include the true worldview with the
cornerstone of theology within themselves. Otherwise the science which
occupies man by himself and prevents him from learning about truth is
equal to ignorance in Quran lexicon. Prophet Mohammad stated that
there are three things no one (being Muslim or non-Muslim) should
1. Doing good to parents
2. Fulfilling the promise
3. Faithful to the trust
(Nahj-ul-Fasaaha, page 115)
He also mentioned: The more Muslim is the one among you whose morality is the best and understanding of the religion is deeper.
Question 19: Why is the Koran introduced as the final Book, and Islam as the final religion? How could the needs of the modern man be achieved through the laws and rules of 1400 years ago?
“… the nature made by Allah in which He has made human beings; there is no altering of Allah’s creation…” (The Koran: 30:30)
The Holy Koran has mentioned many matters and discussed lots of issues. It talks about theology and rational knowledge, about Creation and Resurrection, metaphysics, the soul, angles and jinn and Satan. It points to the Earth and other planets, to the history of the past people, the prophets and their followers. Sometimes, it brings proverbs, proofs and reasoning, and sometimes enters the moral issues and explains family rights. Once it talks about the seat of government, social order and rules of war; and puts forward lines for worship, treaties, political and economic issues, and canonizes marriage, inheritance, lawful punishments and so on. In all these cases it introduces the best and most interesting realities to human being; realities which are not falsifiable and cannot be refuted by any one. This is what is not essentially possible for human beings to canonize whether totally or partly. This law must be permanent, perfect and above reproach. Hence we see that a short while after a book on any of theoretical sciences is written, many of its theories get disproved, for the more theoretical sciences are discussed and studied, more truths are discovered and the invalidity of the past theories becomes more obvious.
Question 20: what is the difference between Islam viewpoint toward human with
other thoughts and viewpoints?
In Islamic viewpoint about human being is a two-dimensional being;
physical and spiritual. The spiritual side which is the same as
humanity never dies. And the goal of Islam and Quran teachings is the
happiness (eudemonism) and peace of this dimension.
The human spirit is mentioned several times in the Holy Quran:
And when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created]
soul, then fall down to him in prostration." (Al-Hijr 29)(Surah 16)
The Holy Quran besides referring to the divine spirit of man; declares
it as a dignity and mastery of man over other creatures and also the
reason of angels prostrating him. But unfortunately, other thoughts
has confined human being and his desires to the mortal man. So, today,
the man is deprived of human spiritual delight besides the perfection
following it while Islam has honored both the human dimension and has
a plan for both so that man has benefited from both the material world
and the world of meaning.
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): “The one is better from among you who does
not lose the life after death for his material life and vice versa and
the one who is not a burden to people. (Nahj-ul-Fasaaha P: 275)
He also mentioned: the world is sweet and verdurous and God has placed
you in it to see what you do. (Nahj-ul-Fasaaha P: 276)
Question 21 - Why do Muslims call their religious book (Quran) a miracle?
1. Prophet of Islam was illiterate, whereas, the Holy Book was full of complicated philosophical and logical instructions, scientific facts, and the news of the previous Holy Books which indicates that Quran is not the word of human being but an eternal and divine miracle. God has referred to Prophet Muhammad as illiterate several times in Quran:
"And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt." (48- Al-Ankabout)(Surah 29)
2. Complete coherence among the verses (from the beginning till the end) whereas being revealed gradually over 23 years in different situations (ward, peace, failure, victory, and etc.) confirms that This Book is not written by man. As the Quran states:
"Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction." (82-An-Nisa)(Surah 4)
3. Miracle on legislation: Quran attention to legislation in confirmed and indefectible rights as well as equality in legislation is another aspect of its miraculousnees which makes the Holy Quran unique and eternal. For instance, when Quran expresses the attributes of the descent servants it verbalizes:
"And [they are] those who, when they spend, do so not excessively or sparingly but are ever, between that, [justly] moderate." (67-Al-Furghan)(Surah 25)
4. Many sibylline news…
5. Stories of the previous Prophets…
6. Mysteries of creation( living creatures having couple and being pair, movement of the earth, the earth being circle, insemination, unknown continents, revolution of the moon in distinctive orbit, and etc.
7. Asking the opponents of Quran to bring a chapter (Surah), 10 chapters, or even a whole book like Quran.
8. If you wish to study more about it you can refer to the book “Quran Science” written by Ayatollah Ma’refat, “Al-Etghan” by Siyooti, or “expressing Science and general matters in Quran” by Ayatollah Khoyee.
Question 22 - How is the Status of Women in Islam?
A) According to Islam and holy Quran's ideology woman and men are the same in humanistic and spiritual aspects. Because:
1. In Quran's point of view being man or woman is not the main goal in creation. What was he not an ejaculated drop (of sperm)? (37) Then he was a clot of blood, and then he created and formed him (38) and made from him two kinds, male and female. (39). (AL-QIYAMA)
2. Quran's addressee is mankind (both men and women). The merciful (1) has taught the Quran. (2) He created the human (3) and taught him its pronunciation (4). (AR-RAHMAN)
3. Women and men are the same in achieving Devine and humanistic statuses. For whosoever does a righteous deed, be they believing men or women, we shall recompense them with their wage according to the best of their deeds.( AN-NAHL 97).
B) But, in spite of having the same divine spirit, they are created for unique duties in this mortal world.
Consequently, Man and woman are complementary and their unity causes permanency and reservation in existence.( For more details refer to Woman in the Mirror of Divine Beauty and Divine Glory by Ayatullah Javadi Amoli and the book - Woman And Her Rights In Islam” by Allama Murtaza Mutahhari).
The prophet Mohammad who is the greatest teacher for mankind and lived in the era that women did not have any rights, said: Seeking knowledge is incumbent upon every Muslim, male and female.
Question 23 - Does the holy Qur’an have any scientific information about the creation of the universe?
The holy Qur’an has referred to the creation of the universe in several verses. Cosmologists have some scientific theories about the formation of the universe; and some scholars and thinkers have tried to prove the scientific miracle of the holy Qur’an by showing how these scientific findings are similar to the Qur’anic verses. The following are only some of the verses which are related to this issue and are studied by commentary writers and experts:
“Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke…” (The holy Qur’an, 41:11)
“Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?” (The holy Qur’an, 21: 30)
Astrology has proved that at the beginning of creation, celestial bodies were in the form of smoke and stuck together. Then gradually because of severe pressure, the gasses turned into solid. “This scientific fact was first stated about two centuries ago by Laplace, the famous French mathematician and astronomer. Today modern astronomy has proved the validity of Laplace’s scientific theory.” (Javad Eftekharian, Qur’an va Olume Rooz (Qur’an and Modern Sciences), p. 235).
“If we take the Sun and its subproduct the Earth as an example (the only one accessible to us), science informs us that their formation occurred by a process of condensation of the primary nebula and then
their separation. This is exactly what the Qur'an expresses very clearly when it refers to the processes that produced a fusion and subsequent separation starting from a celestial 'smoke'. Hence there is complete correspondence between the facts of the Qur'an and the facts of science.” (Dr. Maurice Buccaile, The Bible, the Qur’an and Science (The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge)
The Bible, the Qur’an and Science (The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge), by Dr. Maurice Buccaile, Translated from French by Alastain D. Pannell and the Author. (The PdF file is
available on the internet)
Question 24 - Are there any scientific news about man creation and fetus life cycle in Quran?
Don’t forget Quran verses belong several years ago and science had many mistakes and negligence about fetus life in those days. Quran mentions three fundamental subjects about fetus life:
یَا أَیُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاکُم مِّن ذَکَرٍ وَأُنثَى
1. People, we have created you from a male and a female, (AL-HUJRAAT13).
2. Quran categorized fetus life steps with elegance and accuracy which is coincident with modern scientist researches.
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِینٍ ﴿12﴾ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِی قَرَارٍ مَّکِینٍ ﴿13﴾ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَکَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ فَتَبَارَکَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِینَ ﴿14﴾
We created the human from an essence of clay: then we made him, a drop, in a secure receptacle (the womb). Then we created of the drop, a clot (of congealed blood) and we created the clot into bite size tissue, then we created the bite size tissue into bones, then we clothed bones with flesh, and then produced it another creation. Blessed is Allah, the best of creators! ( AL-MUMENOON12-14)
3. Quran introduces Divine soul as main criteria of man creation:
فَإِذَا سَوَّیْتُهُ وَنَفَخْتُ فِیهِ مِن رُّوحِی فَقَعُواْ لَهُ سَاجِدِینَ
When I have shaped him and ran my created soul in him fall down prostrating towards him'. (AL-HIJR 29) .In addition, Quran never prohibits mankind from searching about creation but orders him to do it:
فَلْیَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ خُلِقَ مِن مَّاء دَافِقٍ یَخْرُجُ مِن بَیْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ
Let the human reflect of what he is created. He was created from ejaculated water. That issues from between the loins and the ribs. Surely, he is able to bring him back,
There are more than 60 verses about creation in Quran that each of them reveals a secret from creation secrets. for more details you can refer to expressing general science in Quran written by Seyed Abolghasem Khoei , searching in scientific miracle in Quran written by Muhammad Ali Rezai Esfahani and miracle in Quran verses in man creation written by Muhammad Fayaz.
Question 25 - Is there anything about gravity in Quran?
Some interpreters and thinkers believe that Quran mentions to gravity in some cases:
اللّهُ الَّذِی رَفَعَ السَّمَاوَاتِ بِغَیْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا
It is Allah who raised the heavens without pillars that you see. (AL RAD 13)
خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ بِغَیْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا
He created the heavens without pillars.(LUQMAN10)
Limiting (عمد) to (ترونها) is because of this matter that sky doesn’t have visible pillars and it means that there are some pillars but they are disappeared….this is delicate expression which shows gravity and repulsive force that is like a strong pillar holds planets. There is a Hadith from Imam Reza that proves this matter: Hussein ibn Khalid asks Imam Reza about the interpretation of this verse of Quran:
وَالسَّمَاء ذَاتِ الْحُبُکِ
By the heaven with its passages, (ADH-DHARIYAT 7)
He answered: This sky has some ways to the earth. Hussein ibn Khalid said:
I told him how there are some ways but Allah says the skies don’t have any pillars.
“But Allah says there are no visible pillars” Imam answered.
“Yes “I said.
“So, there are some pillars but you can’t see” Imam continued (Borhan interpretation v2p278) then Imam says some Quran verses and Hadith against Batlamyus astronomical ideas.
By ..............(A non-muslim friend) :
I have a set of scientific questions that I want the Quran to answer.
By Ansaralmahdi :
It's very good that you spent a time to at least ask some questions and if you truly want to know their answers not for testing Quran, God would answers you through it. He would clear your thought through it.
He would clear everything for you. And it's very important that your aim to be for helping the science for the people interests not for your benefits.
And it's very important you know that there is no helper other than him. As he has said in Surah Repentance , verse 116 :
"God holds control over Skys and Earth. He both grants life and brings death, while you (all) have no patron nor any supporter besides Him"
Quranic verses should be understood firstly through its translation then through its interpretation. Even though it would be understood by yourself, too, if you truly want to know your answers , ask sincerely
from God to clear it for yourself , open your eyes and be clever then you certainly would get your answers through it. Of course, there are a lot of scholars who interpreted Quran. I suggest you refer
to Almizan Interpratation of Quran(written by Alameh Syed Mohammad Hussain Tabatabai) to understand the secrete means which is inside the verses. Since Quran is not supposed to show its treasures to dishonest people.
Please, pay a lot of attention to the deep and mysterious points in the verses of Quran.
Questions and Quranic Answers:
(Qustions by ...............(The non-muslim friend) and the answers from the Quran provided by Ansaralmahdi)
1-Do the subatomic particles in the Standard Model have supersymmetric partners? Can they be detected by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN?
(Hood Surah,v. 37) :
"Build the Ark under our eyes and our inspiration. D not preach to me about who have done wrongs they will be drawned"
2-How exactly does the Higgs field generate additional mass?
(Coalition Surah,v. 43) :
"He is the one who accepts prayers from you, as do His angels, to lead you out of darkness into Light, He is Merciful with believers"
3-Why does the universe contain more matter than antimatter?
(The Standard Surah, v. 45-50) :
'Have you not seen how your Lord lenghthens shadows? If He so wished, He would make them stand still. Then We placed the sun as an indicator for them, next We gradually pulled them toward Us. He is the One Who has placed night as a garment for you, and sleep for repose; He makes daytime for rising again. He is the One Who has sent the winds as heralds announcing His mercy. We send pure water down from the sky, so We may bring life to a dead land, and let everythind We have created drink from it, such as livestock and men aplenty. We have spelled it out forthem so they may bear it in mind; yet most men refuse(to do) anything except disbelieve(in it).
4-Can string theories ever be empirically tested? Do they have any validity as a true description of the real world?
(Sheba Surah, v. 48-50) :
"Say: "My Lord, the Knower of unseen things, aims at the truth" .
"Say: "Truth has come, while falsehood neither originates nor does anything over again."
"Say: "If I have strayed, I have only led myself astray, while if I have been guided, then it is because of what my Lord has inspired in me. He is Alert, so Near."
These are 4 Quranic answers to your 4 scientific questions. If you got it, tell me so I send you the rest of its answers. This was the end of what I could send you at the internet. The secrets of Quran are
not supposed to be available for all. I suggest you consult with an Islamic scholar to clear their interprations for you. But please, if it lightened even a small part of your heart, firstly, ask God to help you in this way and then go and search for a suitable scholar...
An example for science in Quran:
(The Cave Surah, v.94-97)
"They said: "Double Horns, Gog and Magog are ravaging the earth. Shall we pay you tribute on condition that you place a barrier between us and them?" He said: Whatever my Lord has empowered me to do is even better, so help me with some (man)power, I'll place a rampart between you and them. Bring me blocks of iron. When he had leveled off (the space) between both cliffs, he said: "Blow on it", untill when he had built it up into a fire, he said: "Bring me molten brass so I may pour some over it nor were they able to tunnel through it."
How does Christianity and Islam differ from each other???
Their stance and beliefs on common issues:
✅The status of wisdom and knowledge
Wisdom is the Satan's greatest lewdness.
Knowledge is the greatest enemy of Faith.
In Holy Quran the words knowledge, wisdom, contemplation, and reflection have been repeated 780, 49, 18, and 4 times, respectively. And the worst of living creatures are those who don't use reason.
✅The stance of sin
Jesus has been crucified to make up for our Sins, Therefore don't worry about your Sins.
And every soul earns not [blame] except against itself, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another.(This has been repeated 5 times in Holy Quran: An'am 164, Fatir 18, Asra 15, Zumar 7, and Najm 38)
✅The status of Repentance
Confess about your sins in front of Priest then you get purified from the sins you committed.
Ask for repentance from God, improve your deeds and if you have done something wrong to someone, ask them to forgive you, too.
✅The status of Prophet
Christ is the son of God and God has been represented in Father, Son, and Holy spirit!
Muhammad is a creature like others. He is a mortal man like others and he is God's messanger.
We believe that anyone who understands his truth, his soul , he would understand God
So, please, at first answer me, if you may
Do you beleive that you have an spiritual aspect, too?
O.K. So, explain for us, that are you just this natural body?
O.K. Tell me who makes you walk, talk , think , .......?
What kind of power is it?
What kind of power rules over them?
O.K. What happens when all of them die? Do you die throughly, too.?
If so, what has put such an order in your organic substances to remain alive until you are alive?
So, this kind of life ( without any aim) seems to be so meaningless
Since, for ex. : when I say that I put my hands over there, it means that my truth is something other than my hands,
No , problem. Now, we are not talking about God
Just answer me, if you may
While we say my tongue, it shows that I am something other than that tongue so that I am independent from it , while I say this is my tongue
It shows that I am not just this body,
Even though I am something independent from it, and I own my body such as my tongue
Words are some symbols to manifest our wills
See, we conclude that my truth is something other than this body that I own
You just tell me if we have a body so who are we?
We call it our spirit
But you see I just said "our spirit"
So, we are not even though an spirit, too
We are something other than these two
We are neither a spirit nor a body
We are something which own these two
We are a truth which own both our spirit and our body
Do you know what our truth is? It is from a world higher and greater from the spiritual and natrual world
I am trying to refer you to a higher world
I explained it to you logically
My defenition of it is that if we want to releaize whether God exists or not , we should first understand our truth, our reason , then look at Him from that angel
No one could realize God from their bodies,
Even from their spirits
Yes, you're right, unless we don't realize our truth we cannot realize THE TRUTH which is God
Even though most religious people might think that they realize Him, but they might not be able to realize Him except by realizing their truth at first
We have questions at first that we are unfamiliar with God and religion, but after getting familiar with the truth we would get all the answers of the questions
So, the more I know my truth I know Him
And you know it that if you have all the sciences in this world but you don't know who your truth is, you are confused
Through dividing what you own. you will understand and distinguish between your truth, your body and spirit
O.K. Did you accept that the creator of the universe is him?
The universe was created to reach us to our perfection . Our creation is a step to our perfection , since if we pass this step in beleiving Him well and do good deeds we would reach our perfection throughout this world, too.
And certainly, this universe is a very small part of what he truely created and it might not mainly even imagine through our understandings.
You know our perfection throughly depends on what we realize about ourselves, the universe and God. It's our understanding about these truths which should reach its perfection.
An example for the steps of perfection: And he(a disbeliver) extracted for them [the statue of] a calf which had a lowing sound, and they said, "This is your god and the god of Moses, but he forgot." (Ta-ha: 88)
👉Did they not see that it could not return to them any speech and that it did not possess for them any harm or benefit? (Ta-ha: 89)
👉 And Aaron had already told them before [the return of Moses], "O my people, you are only being tested by it, and indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful, so follow me and obey my order." (Ta-ha: 90)
Everything in this world is a test for us, and in reality, it's a chance for us to either believe, follow and obey His orders in the process of our perfection, or to disbelieve Him and loss the opportunity of getting perfected.
Of course, we have actually three levels to pass(to realize) to reach our perfection(realizing our Lord)
The 1st level is to understand our natural body in this natural world
The 2nd level is to understand our soul in the Malakoot world(spiritual world)
The 3rd level is to understand lahoot world( our truth)
After realizing ourselves in these three worlds and actually while pass them, then we realize what we are supposed to realize about THE LORD OF UNIVERSE(aalam)
They are three processes for our perfection(realizing our Lord)
✅The more we realize our truth, the more we realize our Lord
When we realize our truth , then we look at this natural body and this natural world through the magnifying-glass(our soul).
We believe that a night is coming in afew days that God would approve a destiny of the human beings for the next year(Qadr Night).
We are going to pray at that night so that He approves Arrival of the world’s Saviour, whoever you call him.
So, we ask you who are from all beliefs and religions to pray for his Arrival at that night, too.
(The night of June 29 of this year)
《 بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم 》
In the name of Allah the Merciful, the Compassionate
We are supposed to regard this group👇 to an online non-Iranian haiat(a gathering) from the night of 15th of Sha'aban inshaAllah. So that we could have some madahi, lectures and some prayers for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi(aj). Since all of us our supposed to stay at home at these days so it is the best way that we could have a haiat in here.
❌ Plz, if any of you could either have some madahi yourself or send any in this group or present some lectures through these days plz tell me in my pv so we could have some plan for it, inshaAllah.
Some become heavenly at the beginning of the path, some at the middle of it and still some at the end. But some don't even become heavenly though they reach the end of it.
Exactly like those who reached Karbala the night before Ashura but didn't become heavenly because they left their Imam, so it is for those who reach the night of Arbaeen but don't become heavenly - we may.leave our Imam.
Only those who empty their heart for Imam Mahdi (aj) will reach the victory.💚
Ya Allah, plz hasten the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (aj)

✅In order to understand someone it's better to understand his talks
Imam Hossain(A.S.)'s marrafat would be acheived specifically at his last word of his Arafe Doa, while he said: "He is The One".
The more we sincerely ask Allah for forgiveness , we try our best to do good deeds and have Tawasol we could understand a little bit of what he understood, from his last statement at the Arafe Doa.
You know good deeds means doing it for Hossain(A.S.) and his lovers. (like in Arbain Walking).
You see the people in Arbain Walking serve the lovers and Zowar of Imam Hossain(A.S.) sincerely just because of that reason.
We should get matured one day and realize that the secret that the Hossain's real followers at Ashura remained at Karbala so sincerely and finally got martyard for him, was that they just loved to serve him. That was all what they wished to do so.
And their sincere aim to just serve him and his family(etrat) caused Marefat for them. And they finally saw a little bit of what he saw and said that: " Allah is The One".
🌹Ya Allah, please hasten the reappearance of Imam Mahdi(aj)🌹

Understand the presence of Imam Mahdi(Aj) means believing in his presence.
Do we really believe that he is present?Do we believe in his presence as well as believing in presence of others?
An example: Non of us has ever seen their own heart, but we can see it through our heart's eye. Is that right?
Let's look at our heart just a monent through our heart's eye.
Why are we successful to do that?
Because we believe it. We believe we have a heart in the chest.
If we believe that the heart of the world that is Imam Mahdi (Aj) the son of lady Fatemah(s) does exist too, then we would see him through our heart's eye as well.
This is understanding of the presence.

"In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful"
:📣 It is necessary to mention some delightful points
But the good news of tonight are the respond to all those who have doubt if the reappearance of Imām Mahdi(aj) is near and our leader [ Ayatollah Khamenei] is the one who gives the flag of this revolution to its owner
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "Soon we will enter BeytoAllah al-Harām(the Ka'aba)". Our leader Ayatollah Khamenei also has said, "I am not worried that Saudis buy so many weapons because soon Mujahidin( warriors of Allah) will obtain these weapons
✅Imām khomeini said, " Ayatollah khamenei is amongst the dutiful and good ones in this resolution who has been from before this revolution and will be till the highest point of this revolution InshaAllah
✅Imām Khomeini said, "Israel must be vanished from the face of the earth". Mr. khamenei also said in the respond to a senator who had said, "We made Iran 25 years far away from the nuclear power" that they will not see next 25 years. Now we can see that Israel's dream of Nile to Euphrates has turned into the dream of drowning in the ocean.
✅Ayatollah khamenei said that soon you will perform the prayer in al-Aqsā mosque and we will.This means that Israel has finished:
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "This revolution broke the grandeur of East and West.
???Did you all see this event recently or not?
✳Did you not see the form of sitting of Putin before our leader?
✳The Prime Minister of East was sitting, hand tied with respect like a child before an eminence and how beautiful Ayatollah khamenei belittled West.
The power that Ayatollah khamenei demonstrated showed that the enemy has reached the end.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said, " America's power is waning and then he said, "Indeed my Lord is with me, He will guide me".👉انّ مَعیَ رَبی سَیَهدین ( Ash-Shu'ara:62 )
This is the verse that Moses recited it by the Nile river.
Because he was asked that the armed enemy is coming near to us and many people were afraid. Moses said, "Indeed, my Lord is with me, He will guide me".
✅ Ayatollah khamenei also said, "I am saying that my Lord is with me, too, He will guide me" it means God is with us and will guide us.
Soon you will see the opening of Nile river by Moses of this time(Imam Mahdi aj) and he will crush the flimsy power of the enemies.
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "Do not say two super powers anymore, say three super powers, we will become the greatest super power of the world.
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "This century is the century of overcoming the falsehood by the truth.
✅ Imām Khomeini said that America cannot do any damn thing.
Believe that if there would be no undercover agents , America cannot do any damn thing now too. May God curse undercover agents that whatever we tolerate is because of them.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei our leader also said that they cannot do any damn thing, because if they do, we will raze Haifa and Tel Aviv to the ground.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said, "Do not be afraid, there will be no war and we will not negotiate."
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said that we will make the year 98, the year of opportunities. That is to say whatever threat they want to make, we will finally turn it into the opportunity.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said that we are becoming near to the reappearance of that true beloved of hearts, Imam Mahdi(aj). Events that are happening in the region indicate that a great event is going to occur.
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "This century is the century of overcoming the falsehood by the truth. (Be continued👇)
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "waiting for the reappearance of Imām Mahdi, means waiting for Islām's power and we should try so that Islām's power comes into being and preparations for the reappearance of Imām Mahdi(aj) would be made InshaAllah.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei also stated in the statement of the second phase of revolution that we should prepare the ground for the emergence of the new Islamic civilization with the leadership of the great wilāya(Imam Mahdi aj).
✅ Imām Khomeini said, "Our governors must know that our revolution is not limited to Iran, the revolution of Iranian people is the beginning of the great revolution of the world of Islam by Imām Mahdi (May our souls be sacrificed for him) that God made an obligation on us and put his reappearance in the current area.
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said, "We are becoming near to the reappearance of the true beloved of hearts, Imām Mahdi (May our souls be sacrificed for him), because sagacity of people has developed.
📣 Some vital points:
You may know by a handful the whole sack so that those people who consider the reappearance of Imām Mahdi(aj) near, know that we are inside his reappearance.
✅ The reappearance of Imām Mahdi must be 👉made not be waited for.
✅ The reappearance of Imām Mahdi must be made.
New Islamic civilization must be made.
We should work.
Young people must go back to the top points of the government and undertake the works.
And the final statement:
✅ Ayatollah khamenei said that young people will make the new Islamic civilization and we will see that very day soon, inshaAllah🌹.
In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate
📣 The realization of Imam's presence
The main future of a waiter (muntazir of Imam Mahdi) is the realization of his presence, but the question is, what are our responsibilities to achieve this realization? :
1We have to recognize the position of Imam...that he's the mediator of God's grace. The very existence of this universe is blessed by the presence of the Imam of time ( عج ).
2Our every deed must be done with the sole aim of pleasing him and hastening his reappearance , even every regular tasks like eating and speaking etc.
3His arrival must be our topmost priority because it's our only wish and in his reappearance, lies our benefit! We should wait for him every single day.
Although his grace is more effective than these behaviors, but we shouldn't expect to be taken to his tent and counted among his helpers without putting our own efforts. The realization of Imam is not easy, but reciting Zuhur related supplications such as dua Ahad, Nudbah and Iftetah etc with wudhu and facing the Qiblah can be very effective.
Imam Khomeini (pbuh) said that the man must repeat and induce all the issuse related to self development , an issue that is supposed to affect the soul can be fixed in the soul by more repetition and more induction.
When you wake up every morning, renew your covenant with your Imam, as this is a practice to achive the feeling of his presence. Also, our asking for forgiveness should be done through the wasila of the Imam of time and he should be taken as Shaffi (itermediater)...who repents and supplicates to Allah on our behalf due to his lofty position in the eyes of Allah.
The realization of Imam's presence is beyond his Zuhur, any apparent thing is limited while any present and inapparent thing is a reality beyond the limitations.
📣 The Imam of time is present and the realization of his presence is like that of the sun behind the clouds that shines all over the world and with it's light, it nurtures every living thing. So he has been named as the sun behind the cloud in the narrations. This realization of his presence amongst us leads to feelings of shame and refines our deeds and prepares us to help him, so that he could choose us among his helpers InshaAllah.

Wellaye Tadabor of some of Versuses in Chapter 28/29/30 of Quran
اسْتَحْوَذَ عَلَیْهِمُ الشَّیْطَانُ فَأَنسَاهُمْ ذِکْرَ اللَّهِ ۚ أُولَئِکَ حِزْبُ الشَّیْطَانِ ۚ أَلَا إِنَّ حِزْبَ الشَّیْطَانِ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ ﴿١٩﴾
Satan has overcome them and made them forget the remembrance of Allah. Those are the party of Satan. Unquestionably, the party of Satan - they will be the losers. (19)
"Satan surrounded them hard, so they neglected God's remembrance and became devils from the army." Therefore, if we are ignorant of God's remembrance, it is because Satan is surrounded by our hearts and has become dominant in our hearts👉فأَنسَاهُمْ ذِکْرَ اللَّهِ. .
Satan, with the dominion on our hearts, not only made us to forget God, but also made us ignore the memory of our master, Imam Mahdi(aj). Let us be reminded and regularly ask forgiveness from God and withdraw ourselves from Satan's dominion so that we will not be among the devils.
کَمَثَلِ الشَّیْطَانِ إِذْ قَالَ لِلْإِنسَانِ اکْفُرْ فَلَمَّا کَفَرَ قَالَ إِنِّی بَرِیءٌ مِّنکَ إِنِّی أَخَافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِینَ ﴿١٦﴾
[The hypocrites are] like the example of Satan when he says to man, "Disbelieve." But when he disbelieves, he says, "Indeed, I am disassociated from you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds." (16)
Those who make humans to go away from Allah swt are like Satan.
The same way that Satan in Hereafter will make the humans be alone, the ones who have made humans to go away from the path of Allah swt, they will disunite them and leave them alone. And like Satan, they will say “ we are afraid of Allah swt”.
Satan although is fearful of Allah swt👉إنِّی أَخَافُ اللَّهَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِینَ , but continue deceiving and enticing the people; because wetland or swamp is around him, since there is no way back or not a way ahead for him anymore. Therefore, even though he has a lot of fear of Allah swt he continues to do his own work. Unfortunately many of us also go on the path of Satan; that means that although we have fear of Allah but do sins . And the reason of that is that we think we will go to hell anyhow. But if we have an actual fear of Allah swt and have kept ourselves under the umbrella of Imamate and Wilayat of our Imam of time(and specifically obeying Wellaye of Faghih in the time of his occultation), we will not go towards the path of Satan and will not do sins anymore.
یَا أَیُّهَا الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَوْبَةً نَّصُوحًا عَسَىٰ رَبُّکُمْ أَن یُکَفِّرَ عَنکُمْ سَیِّئَاتِکُمْ وَیُدْخِلَکُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِی مِن تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ یَوْمَ لَا یُخْزِی اللَّهُ النَّبِیَّ وَالَّذِینَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ ۖ نُورُهُمْ یَسْعَىٰ بَیْنَ أَیْدِیهِمْ وَبِأَیْمَانِهِمْ یَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَتْمِمْ لَنَا نُورَنَا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ۖ إِنَّکَ عَلَىٰ کُلِّ شَیْءٍ قَدِیرٌ ﴿٨﴾
O you who have believed, repent to Allah with sincere repentance. Perhaps your Lord will remove from you your misdeeds and admit you into gardens beneath which rivers flow [on] the Day when Allah will not disgrace the Prophet and those who believed with him. Their light will proceed before them and on their right; they will say, "Our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us. Indeed, You are over all things competent." (8)
Allah swt asks us to repent to Him with sincere repentance: "sincere repentance" 👉تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَوْبَةً نَّصُوحًا, it means the repentant person will never repeat or turn toward committing sins anymore.
The main pillar of sincere repentance is to repent while being connected to Imamate and Wellayat, asking them to help us or obeying them as how to repent, and never repeat committing sins.
In fact, we can do such a sincere repentance only by believing and obeying Imamate and Wellayat. And if we enjoyed such a blessing to do sincere repentance, Allah swt not only forgives our sins but accepts this repentance as a compensation for the losses stemming from committing sins, then admits us into the promised Paradise, and gives us rewards.
A light will proceed before us and on our right, then we ask Allah swt to perfect for us our light👉نورُهُمْ یَسْعَىٰ بَیْنَ أَیْدِیهِمْ وَبِأَیْمَانِهِمْ ; this light is in fact the light of Imamate and Wellayat. This is because in the world we were connected to Imam Mahdi(aj), so we receive the light in Paradise.
However, if in this world we are not connected to Wellayat, we are blind in Here and there will not be any light with us in Hereafter too.
إِنَّ هَذِهِ تَذْکِرَةٌ ۖ فَمَن شَاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِیلًا ﴿١٩﴾
Indeed, this is a reminder, so whoever wills may take to his Lord a way. (19)
Quran is a reminder and an attention towards God and this Quran guides and guides those who have taken the way of Imāma and Welāya towards God👉فمَن شَاءَ اتَّخَذَ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِ سَبِیلًا ..
The ones who read Quran but do not go the path of Imāma and Welāya, they are not admonished thereby. Therefore If we want to be admonished by Quran and be reminded, we should take obey and follow the path of Imāma and Welāya.
وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ ﴿٤٠﴾
But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination, (40)
If we want to be Imām Mahdi(aj)'s soldiers and be nurtured by Imāma and welāya, there are two conditions:
1. We should fear (our) Lord👉وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ . That is to say we should fear that lest we separate from this process of nurturing, and we should be careful that someone who separates [from this way], is not connected to welāya.
2. We should constantly warn ourselves that lest we follow self-desires. We should always forbid ourselves from following self-desires👉 وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ.
یَا أَیُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ إِنَّکَ کَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّکَ کَدْحًا فَمُلَاقِیهِ ﴿٦﴾
O mankind, indeed you are laboring toward your Lord with [great] exertion and will meet it. (6)
As Imam Ali (as) said, death follows us rapidly and will reach us at last. We are exactly on the way to encounter Allah. and someday we will definetly encounter Allah👉 إِنَّکَ کَادِحٌ إِلَىٰ رَبِّکَ. We don't know how but the main point is that we definitely will encounter Allah. The way how to encounter Allah depends on how much we follow Imamate and Wellayat.
یَا أَیَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ ﴿٢٧﴾ ارْجِعِی إِلَىٰ رَبِّکِ رَاضِیَةً مَّرْضِیَّةً ﴿٢٨﴾ فَادْخُلِی فِی عِبَادِی ﴿٢٩﴾ وَادْخُلِی جَنَّتِی ﴿٣٠﴾
[To the righteous it will be said], "O reassured soul, (27) Return to your Lord, well-pleased and pleasing [to Him], (28) And enter among My [righteous] servants (29) And enter My Paradise." (30)
The true example of the "reassured soul" is Imam Hossein(as)👉یَا أَیَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ . Allah told Imam Hossein on the day of Ashura: "oh you who have reached to the "reassured soul", meaning the highest level of your soul, now return to your Lord. ASHURA was the best path of getting close to your Lord and you have reached to your reassured, the highest level of your soul and faith status. Pleased and pleasing. Enter the paradise. Those who reach to their highest level of their soul and faith are those who have reached to the Imam of time.
وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّکَ فَحَدِّثْ ﴿١١﴾
But as for the favor of your Lord, report [it]. (11)
God commands us and reminds us our duty.
And says :
"Speak about the blessings of your Lord to the people." The blessing of our Lord is Imamate and Wellayat.
It is true that the Imam of our time is in occultation , but we know that our dear Imam is present anyhow. So, we have to revive the name and memory of our Imam , and talk about him to the others wherever we are and ask them to do whatever is necessary to make his reappearance haste 👉فَحَدِّثْ.
وَمَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِیَعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِینَ لَهُ الدِّینَ حُنَفَاءَ وَیُقِیمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَیُؤْتُوا الزَّکَاةَ ۚ وَذَٰلِکَ دِینُ الْقَیِّمَةِ ﴿٥﴾
And they were not commanded except to worship Allah, [being] sincere to Him in religion, inclining to truth, and to establish prayer and to give zakah. And that is the correct religion. (5)
God only, and only and only requires us to pay attention to Him sincerely, even further than praying and giving zakah, ...👉ومَا أُمِرُوا إِلَّا لِیَعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِینَ لَهُ الدِّینَ حُنَفَاءَ.
That is to say, we need to put the needle of the compass of our being in the spot of sincerity and then turn around and carry out our tasks and duties and know that the purity of intent is the most important. And in the first place, we would be asked about the intentions of our actions on the Day of Judgement .
So, let's connect our heart with Imam Mahdi(aj) , since then we would be able to purify our life for only God.
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِیمِ
إِذَا جَاءَ نَصْرُ اللَّهِ وَالْفَتْحُ ﴿١﴾ وَرَأَیْتَ النَّاسَ یَدْخُلُونَ فِی دِینِ اللَّهِ أَفْوَاجًا ﴿٢﴾ فَسَبِّحْ بِحَمْدِ رَبِّکَ وَاسْتَغْفِرْهُ ۚ إِنَّهُ کَانَ تَوَّابًا ﴿٣﴾
بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
When the victory of Allah has come and the conquest, (1) And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes, (2) Then exalt [Him] with praise of your Lord and ask forgiveness of Him. Indeed, He is ever Accepting of repentance. (3)
When comes the Help of Allah👉 نصْرُ اللَّهِ(Imam Mahdi aj) and the conquest (the globalization of Islam)👉والْفَتْحُ:
2. And you see that the people enter Allah's religion (Islam) in crowds,
3. So glorify the Praises of your Lord, and ask for His Forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and forgives.
A day, very soon, our beloved Imam Mahdi(aj) will come. And when he comes, the Help of Allah will come too. Of course Allah swt has always been helping us since He created us, but it hasn't been along with the global victory yet; when our beloved Imam reappears, this Allah's Help or assistance will be accompanying victory (the victory will be granted), and this is the Muslems' worldwide victory which is called Imam Mahdi(aj)'s global revolution.
At that time, the people enter Allah's religion (Islam) in crowds; as it is said "the people"👉ورَأَیْتَ النَّاسَ, and it did not say, the Muslims or Shias enter, So we realize that the people from any religion or sect will enter to Allah's religion.
Thus, we should not be proud of our being Muslim or Shias. A majority of people might have not been a follower of any religion, but enter the religion at that time. And it might also happen vice versa, May Allah swt prohibits, that propably all of Shias are not allowed to be Imam Mahdi(aj)'s companions due to our pride or selfishness because of our own good deeds.
Therefore, let us praise Allah swt because Allah Loves us. And through our praising and gloifying Allah, we should show and prove to Him that there won't be any true Love other than for Him. We should constantly repent from both our known and unknown sins because Allah swt is the Forgiving, Merciful and Beneficent. 'Forgiving' means that He allows us to return to Him, but this happens on the condition that we have our heart connected to Imam Mahdi(aj), obey him and at his occultation obey Wellaye of Faghih as he ordered us to it👇
وأمّا الحوادث الواقعة : فارجعوا فیها إلى رواة حدیثنا فإنهم حُجّتی علیکم ، وأنا حُجّة الله علیهم. (بحار الأنوار ج53 ص181)
And as for the recent occurrences, turn to the narrators of our Hadiths(Faghih) for they are my proof upon you, and I am Allah's proof upon them. (Bihar al-Anwar Ch.53, P.181)

Wellaye Tadabor of some of Versuses in Chapter 27 of Quran
وَفِی الْأَرْضِ آیَاتٌ لِّلْمُوقِنِینَ ﴿٢٠﴾ وَفِی أَنفُسِکُمْ ۚ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ ﴿٢١﴾ وَفِی السَّمَاءِ رِزْقُکُمْ وَمَا تُوعَدُونَ ﴿٢٢﴾
And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith] (20) And in yourselves. Then will you not see? (21) And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised. (22)
We are the travellers towards Allah swt and must reach Allah swt and Allah in this place sends us the address and says” we must pass the 3 phases or stages so we can get close to Allah swt”:
1.The first stage: The material world or this world where we are living, which means the same earth made of sand and clay and is included in this world👉وفِی الْأَرْضِ آیَاتٌ لِّلْمُوقِنِینَ .
And in this world there are signs , if we are among the ones who believe, from these signs we can reach Allah swt.
In this world we must disconnect from its desires so we can reach Allah swt.
2.The second stage: the second stage is the insight of our soul. Meaning that we in Alam e Malakoot(internal world), the realm beyond this material world, we enter and understand the essence of our souls and get to the insight of ourselves and when we achieve true knowledge and insight of our true selves which is the soul that is when we can reach Allah swt, who has created us to reach and to understand Him. As a result will get the closeness and proximity to Allah swt👉 وفِی أَنفُسِکُمْ ۚ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ.
3.The third stage: We will get His signs not only in this apparent sky from where the sustenance of rain and other blessings of Allah swt reaches us, but also from the hidden world or realm or the realm of intelligence and insight that Allah's sustenance reaches us, that if we reach the realm of intelligence and insight, Allah grants us our provisions whatever we are promised👉 وفِی السَّمَاءِ رِزْقُکُمْ وَمَا تُوعَدُونَ.
We must pass from these 3 stages so that we reach the closeness of Allah swt. We must know that without the connection of Imam Mahdi(aj) and without following him it's impossible to be able to pass these 3 phases or stages.
إِنَّ عَذَابَ رَبِّکَ لَوَاقِعٌ ﴿٧﴾ ....فَوَیْلٌ یَوْمَئِذٍ لِّلْمُکَذِّبِینَ ﴿١١﴾
Indeed, the punishment of your Lord will occur. (7) ....Then woe, that Day, to the deniers, (11)
In this verse God has supported Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) and the infallibles (as) and has brought certain reasons and evidence for their true authority.
In verse 7, God says after swearing six times, "Indeed, the punishment of your Lord will occur". In verse 11 says, "The woe, that Day, to the deniers". What is meant by the deniers in this verse is those ones who have actually denied God by denying the infallibles.
The prophets and the infallibles (as) have come to declare for the Divine religion and when the deniers deny them, they have actually denied God👉للْمُکَذِّبِینَ .
Denial is of two types: I
*Sometimes denial is apparently and by tounge. For example sometimes - God forbid - we deny the Imamate and Wellayat of the infallibles (as) verbally.
*Sometimes the denial is the inward denial and practical which means we do not say it by tounge but we actually act in a way as if we do not have Imām we do not obey Imāmate and Welāya.
In fact Imām is someone who goes in the forefront and we follow him. But many of us do not follow the infallible Imāms at all and we actually don't have Imām in our life and this is a practical denial.
While we should follow Welāya like our body that is the follower of our head, wherever the head goes, the body obeys and follows it, because the head is the imām of body.
We too should be like the body to the head for Imam of our Time that means we should obey and follow him truely.
وَأَن لَّیْسَ لِلْإِنسَانِ إِلَّا مَا سَعَىٰ ﴿٣٩﴾ وَأَنَّ سَعْیَهُ سَوْفَ یُرَىٰ ﴿٤٠﴾
And that there is not for man except that [good] for which he strives (39) And that his effort is going to be seen soon - (40)
What is important to God is our endeavor to do God's commandments, and God rewards our efforts and our efforts in carrying out the divine works of our eternity.
For example, during one-day prayers, the morning prayer is more emphasized because it needs more efforts to be done while we are slept at the early in the morning.
In fact, our efforts are recorded👉وَأَن لَّیْسَ لِلْإِنسَانِ إِلَّا مَا سَعَىٰ.
Imam Ali (as) has said, "You are not our Shia if your today isn't better than your yesterday(meaning your heart and deeds)
But we generally do not make any effort, and our every day is like our yesterday. We have no progress, and we are just rolling around ourselves.
And this means we have been stopped in the path of Allah, and we actually go towards Allah while we do our best to be better than our yesterday. Then He would surely rewards our try so soon👉 وَأَنَّ سَعْیَهُ سَوْفَ یُرَىٰ.
Pay attention that our efforts should be connected to the Wellayat of Imam Mahdi(aj), in order to reach our perfection and get closed to Allah.
So let's try to do God's commandments and despair, and know that those commands and desires that are harder worth more. Meanwhile, their rewards are greater and we reach the reappearance of Imam Mahdi(aj), soon, inshaAllah.
Allah in surah Qamar constantly mentions that Quran has been made easy for people to comprehend and whereby find the path towards Allah swt👉ولَقَدْ یَسَّرْنَا الْقُرْآنَ لِلذِّکْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّکِرٍ(And We have certainly made the Qur'an easy for remembrance, so is there any who will remember?) ; but unfortunately we forget Allah being immersed in neglect. We recite Quran but don't remember Allah swt although Allah made Quran such that we easily understand it and remember Allah by reciting it, we don't receive admonition.
Allah swt made Quran easy to speak to us. When someone wants to become close to a person, he tries to speak to him, to have communication with him; Allah swt also wants us to be nearest to Him or to be the foremost, so he speaks to us.
فِی مَقْعَدِ صِدْقٍ عِندَ مَلِیکٍ مُّقْتَدِرٍ ﴿٥٥﴾
In a place of truth, near a Sovereign, Perfect in Ability. (55)
"In a place of truth, near the Omnipotent Lord👉فِی مَقْعَدِ صِدْقٍ."
"Place of truth" of Allah is for those who are pious; those who are pious or God - fearing, getting rid of their worldly desires and don't do anything they like, don't say anything they want (control their tongue), don't go anywhere they wish. They first take time to think deeply trying to have their heart connected to their Imam, hence they will have an enlightened mind being able to distinguish which action is right and which one is wrong to do.
As a matter of fact, the real place that the pious deserve to be in is not only "paradise", but "a place of truth"; "a place of truth" means not only they are the nearest to Allah swt but they will be given whatever they wish in Here and Hereafter. So if we purify ourselves for the sake of Allah swt and become pious and sincere, we we will be near the Omnipotent Lord and we also get power and be granted anything we want specifically the reappearance of Imam Mahdi(aj) soon.
We don't have Imam Mahdi(aj)'s 313 companions yet; those who have power and strength. Let us purify ourselves and become pious so as to be near the Omnipotent and almighty Lord and gain great power and influence, in order to become among those 313 companions, and be helpful for his reappearance, inshaAllah.
God tells us 31 times in this surah, "So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? 👉فبِأَیِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّکُمَا تُکَذِّبَانِ . "
The blessing of God , are actually the blessing of Imamate and Wellayat. And from the fact of blessings, punishments, and heaven and hell that is spoken between the verses , we realize that the whole world is manifastation of Muhammedan (pbuh), the original essence reality of Muhammad .
It means , we get our share of any blessing in Here and in Hereafterfrom the Prophet and the purified Imams .
When God asks us " So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? ",
It means that all our Lord's training for our completion is through Imammate and Wellayat.
مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَیْنِ یَلْتَقِیَانِ ﴿١٩﴾ بَیْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لَّا یَبْغِیَانِ ﴿٢٠﴾ فَبِأَیِّ آلَاءِ رَبِّکُمَا تُکَذِّبَانِ ﴿٢١﴾ یَخْرُجُ مِنْهُمَا اللُّؤْلُؤُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ ﴿٢٢﴾
He released the two seas, meeting [side by side]; (19) Between them is a barrier [so] neither of them transgresses. (20) So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? (21) From both of them emerge pearl and coral. (22)
The two marines that come together at the first view seem to be two salty and sweet seas but subjectively is the sea of the being of Imam Ali(as) and Lady Fatima(s) , they came together and got married👉مرَجَ الْبَحْرَیْنِ یَلْتَقِیَانِ.
And the meaning of barrier is a distance. A distance between these two people ( Imam Ali and lady Fatima as ) is Prophet Mohammad(pbuh)👉 بیْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لَّا یَبْغِیَانِ.
And from them ( Imam Ali and lady Fatima as ) are borned , a "pearl" ,Imam Hassan (as), and "a coral" , Imam Hussein (as)👉یخْرُجُ مِنْهُمَا اللُّؤْلُؤُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ.
تَبَارَکَ اسْمُ رَبِّکَ ذِی الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِکْرَامِ ﴿٧٨﴾
Blessed is the name of your Lord, Owner of Majesty and Honor. (78)
God declares in this verse the reason that we should'nt deny the blessing of Wellaye and Imamate ." And says : The name of your Lord is High and Happy " .
The word " name " means "sign ."
When something or someone is called with a name that name is his sign .
And The Lord who is our God . He wants to educate and complete us.
He educates us by His name or sighn and the sign of our Lord is Wellaye and Imamate . It means we will reach to perfection through the infalibles(as) .
وَالسَّابِقُونَ السَّابِقُونَ ﴿١٠﴾ أُولَئِکَ الْمُقَرَّبُونَ ﴿١١﴾
And the forerunners, the forerunners - (10) Those are the ones brought near [to Allah] (11)
The foremost ones try constantly to be better than others and even better than their own yesterday and from their last hour or even their last moment to reach their completion. As a result all the blessings are for them in both Here and Hereafter and their prayers are accepted👉وَالسَّابِقُونَ السَّابِقُونَ.
Infact these the foremost ones are the ones near to Allah and the one who is near to Allah gets close to his own perfection and gets power and honour and Allah's blessing. All these blessing are due to the Imam .
The reason of reaching to such blessing is that he follows his Imam. Such person sees his Imam is the foremost so he tries to be foremost, too.
وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَیْهِ مِنکُمْ وَلَکِن لَّا تُبْصِرُونَ ﴿٨٥﴾
And We are nearer to him than you, but you do not see - (85)
When we are beside someone who is dyingو we feel we are so close to him. But Allah says We are closer to him and in the previous verse Allah said: We are nearer to him than his jugular vein. This closeness does not exist in this world. Allah brough this example as there is nothing closer to human but his jugular vein.
Allah wants to tell us to pass this material world and reach to the spiritual and internal world to understand that Allah is near you.
Infact we would not be able to get close to Allah from this material world because our truth is in the spiritual world. If we reach to the spiritual world we get to know our true selves then we would understand the closeness of Allah. And we understand how close we were to Allah but we didn't realize that👉وَلَکِن لَّا تُبْصِرُونَ.
یَا أَیُّهَا الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَآمِنُوا بِرَسُولِهِ یُؤْتِکُمْ کِفْلَیْنِ مِن رَّحْمَتِهِ وَیَجْعَل لَّکُمْ نُورًا تَمْشُونَ بِهِ وَیَغْفِرْ لَکُمْ ۚ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِیمٌ ﴿٢٨﴾
O you who have believed, fear Allah and believe in His Messenger; He will [then] give you a double portion of His mercy and make for you a light by which you will walk and forgive you; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (28)
In the surah (Al-Hadid) which means the iron(a severe thing), Allah has talked about the most delicate truth of the world which is the light.
In the verses of 12,13, 19 Allah talks about the light which is for the Faithful. And the unbelivers want to take benefit of such light.
Verse 28 of Al-Hadid Surreh:
Allah has granted a light for the Faithful to go to the right path through that. The faithful who take benefit of this light have three charactristics👉یا أَیُّهَا الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَآمِنُوا بِرَسُولِهِ :
1)they have faith in Allah.
2) they have piety and self control.
3)They have faith in Imamate and Wellayah.
Allah grants the faithful double share of His Mercy as the Faithful believe and obey the Imams. It means Allah gives the extra blessings to them comparing to others and Allah gives them the light of Imamate and Wellayat in their life so they could get close to Him and He forgives them too.
