Hatred of Oppression - Sermon 224 of NahjulBalagha

Shia Truth: Hadith of Imam Ali (NahjulBalagha) about world, oppression and day of Judgment - حدیث از امام علی نهج البلاغه Shia
Part of sermon 224 of Nahjulbalagha
By Allah, I would rather pass a night in wakefulness on the thorns of as-sa`dan (a plant having sharp prickles) or be driven in chains as a prisoner than meet Allah and His Messenger on the Day of Judgement as an oppressor over any person or a usurper of anything out of worldly wealth. And how can I oppress any one for (the sake of a life) that is fast moving towards destruction and is to remain under the earth for a long time?
By Allah, even if I am given all the domains of the seven (stars) with all that exists under the skies in order that I may disobey Allah to the extent of snatching one grain of barley from an ant I would not do it. For me your world is lighter than the leaf in the mouth of a locust that is chewing it. What has `Ali to do with bounties that will pass away and pleasures that will not last? We seek protection of Allah from the slip of wisdom and the evils of mistakes, and from Him we seek succour.

Fear Allah While Using Social Networks

Be aware that for every sexy or another type of misleading photo you share on Instagram or other social media, you must answer. Furthermore every like on your photo, increases your burden before Allah.

🌻 "But they will surely carry their [own] burdens and [other] burdens along with their burdens, and they will surely be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about what they used to invent"Qoran, 29:13🌻"Fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered" Qoran, 2:203

Hadith of Imam Reza

Condolences on Martyrdom of Imam Reza in the last day of Safar...
Imam Reza, Shia Truth
Imam Reza: Nothing is more worthy than good temper

Condolence on Demise of The Prophet Muhammad

Today is Safar 28, the day in where the prophet Muhammad (sawa) passed away:
In the beginning of 11 AH, the Prophet (s) became sick and passed away. Before he passed away, when he was very ill, he gave a farewell speech to the Muslims and advised them to be kind to one other. He also said "If I owe anything to anyone, they should come to me to ask for it or else, they should disregard it. If I have annoyed anyone, I am ready to be punished in retaliation for it"[70].
The Prophet (s) passed away on the 28th of Safar or on the 12th of Rabi' al-Awwal 11 AH at the age of 63. It is mentioned in Nahj al-balagha that at the time of his death, the Prophet's (s) head lay on the chest of Ali (a).[71]
At the time of his death, none of his children were alive except for Fatima (a). All of his other children had passed away, including Ibrahim, who was born one or two years before the Prophet's (s) death. Ali (a), with the help of some others, as per the Islamic tradition, washed the Prophet's (s) body, and shrouded and buried him in his house, where it is now located in Masjid al-Nabi
Condolence on Martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad - شهادت پیامبر تسلیت باد

Condolences on death (or martyrdom) of the Prophet (SAWA) and Martyrdom of Imam Hassan (AS) and Imam Reza (AS).
In 28th of Safar 632 (11AH Islamic Calendar) the prophet Muhammad (SAWA) was dead. In the same day at 50 AH his grandson Imam Hassan was martyred by poison.
In 30th of Safar 203 AH, Imam Reza (AS), the 8th Imam of Shia Muslims was martyred by Mamun, Caliph of Bani Abbas. Imam Reza was martyred by poisonous grapes

What happened after the death of the Prophet?

How was Abubakr selected as the successor of the Prophet?

While Ali b. Abi Talib (a) and the Banu Hashim were washing the corpse of the Prophet (s) as per Islamic tradition, a few influential Muslims decided to choose the next leader for the ummah-- disregarding what the Prophet (s) had said just two months prior to his demise (see: Ghadir Khum). A number of people from Mecca (the Muhajirin) and Medina (the Ansar) gathered in a place called Saqifa Banu Sa'ida. They wanted a ruler to be chosen for the Muslims as soon as possible.  Finally they choose AbuBakr despite of the Prophet emphasis on leadership of Ali (as) after him several times during his life (See: Hadith Ghadeer, Hadith Manzilat, Hadith AlThaqalayn, Hadith Yawm al Inzar).

Second Letter of Imam Khamenei Towards The Youth of Europe

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

To the Youth in Western Countries,

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...

Arbaeen - Largest Annual Gathering is Underway

Dec-2-2015 is Arbaeen of Imam Hussein. I hope this year, western media send some reporters to see what is happening in Iraq during these days. Millions of Shia Muslims are traveling on foot towards Hussain from hundreds of kilometers away; but almost no TV channel or News site talks about it (they only see Self Flagellation!). Why? Because they think that this kind of Islam will change the world and if it is spread around the world and people know Who is Hussain, Capitalism will be diminished and Islam will be extended throughout the world... 

Some records for Arbaeen of Imam Hussein (as):

  • The largest annual gathering in the world (about 20 million pilgrims)
  • The longest continuous dining table (about 500 km)
  • Largest number of people fed for free
  • Largest group of volunteers serving a single event
  • Longest travel on foot (from 80 km to 500km and more)

Arbaeen 2015 is Coming

Arbaeen 2015 is coming; KEEP READY for the best travel in the earth. Fortunately I experienced this spiritual travel on foot previous year, Arbaeen 2014. I hope traveling again ,this year during Arbaeen 2015, to the heart of the world, Karbala, the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (as).
Don't miss the following documentary about Arbaeen and Imam Hussain:

What is Arbaeen (Arba'in)?

It’s not the Muslim Hajj, or the Hindu Kumbh Mela... Known as Arbaeen (or Arba'in), it is the world’s most populous gathering and you’ve probably never heard of it! Arbaeen Pilgrimage is the largest religious gathering which is held every year. It is held at the end of the 40-day mourning period following Ashura, the religious ritual for the commemoration of the Prophet Mohammad's grandson Hossein ibn Ali's death in 680. Arba'een marks a "pivotal event in Islamic history" in which the pilgrims make their journey to Karbala on foot, where Husayn ibn Ali, the third Imam of Shia, and his army were killed and beheaded by the army of Yazid.

Self Flagellation in Ashura?

Every time I look at Google for the word Ashura or Ashoora, I see lots of bloody photos of people who are flagellating themselves with chains of blades, sword, knife or other sharp metal things! Now the question is that:

Is Self Flagellation in Ashura Legal in Shia Religion?

Is this the truth about Shia and Ashura? That means do all the Shia Muslims flagellate themselves during Ashura? It seems so crazy and unbelievable, since that I am a Shia Muslim and I never did it and never see somebody flagellate himself in our Shia cities during my life! So why Google shows these Images in its first page and why it never filters them while they contain violent and rough images.

Answer is so clear. Google doesn't like Shia thoughts to be spread throughout the world. Google is under supervision of Zionists and it is not acceptable for them that the religion of resistance, Shia, which is against Israel (Hizbullah, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Iraq) has a good face in Google results! So it shows images of Hindu men that believe in No Pain, No Gain and mutilate themselves in Muharram procession!
Self Mutilation in Ashura! Forbidden in Shia
What Western Media and Google See for Ashura.
Most of those people flagellating themselves are Hindu, not Shia! Self-flagellation is forbidden in Shia according to Fatwas of their grand Ayatollahs like Ali Khamenei and Ali Sistani ( see )

Reason of Imam Hussein's Revolution in Ashura

What is the reason of Imam Hussein revolution?

Shia Truth: reason of Imam Hussein's uprising against Yazid - Ashura Truth Imam Hussein (as) introduced some reasons of his uprising in a testament letter to his brother Muhammad Hanafiah:
I did not come out seeking to do evil, nor seeking to have fun, nor seeking corruption nor oppression. Rather, I came out seeking reform in the nation of my Grandfather. I want to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.

Lessons from Imam Hussein and Ashura

Shia Truth - Lessons from Imam Hussein and Ashura
Some lessons from Imam Hussein and Ashura 

What is Ashura and Who is Imam Hussein?

Ashura is the tenth day of Muharram (the first month of the Islamic calendar). On this day, in more than 14 centuries ago and in a place called Karbala which is now in Iraq, Imam Hussain who was the 3'rd Imam of Shia Muslims and the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) along with many of his family members and all of his companions sacrificed their lives in order to save the teachings of Islam from utter distortion and destruction. Shia Muslims do not fast on this day. They dress in black and take to the streets and mosques on this day to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Hussein (PBUH) who is remembered as the symbol of freedom and dignity. Imam rose up against the tyrant of the time, Yazid, and was martyred after rejecting allegiance to him.
In the battle of Karbala, Imam Hussein and his companions were encircled by an army of 30,000 which decapitated martyrs and ran over bodies with horses.
Yazid’s army then plundered tents of Imam Hussein’s family and burned them. Then, they moved girls and women along heads of the martyrs to Yazid’s court.

Condolence on Martyrdom of Imam Sadiq (as)

Today, Shavval-25 is the day of martyrdom of Imam Sadiq (83-148 AH). We offer condolences to all Shia Muslims on this event.

Shia Muslim: Hadith of Imam Sadiq
Imam Sadiq (as): Good temper with neighbors, promotes houses and postpones death. (Usul al-Kafi, p. 624)

A brief biography of Imam Sadiq (as)

Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S) is the sixth Imam of Shia Muslims. During the Caliphate of Abu Jafar Mansoor Abbasi. Imam Sadiq (A.S) lived until 65 years. He had the longest life amongst the other eleven Imams (A.S). Thus, he is also called as the Sheikh-ul-A'imah.

After the martyrdom of his respected father, Imam Mohammed Baqir (A.S, he undertook the flag of the guidance of Islamic nation for 34 years. During the period when the Umayyad government was facing weakness and there was dispute and feud with the Abbasids, Imam Sadiq (A.S) utilized this golden opportunity in the revival of the Prophetic customs, the dissemination of the Islamic culture and trained students who created epics in the Shiite history.

During the said period, the theological university of Imam Sadiq (A.S) consisted of more than 4000 students in the different field of Fiqh (Jurisprudence), Tafsir (Commentary of Holy Quran), Kalaam, Hadith (traditions) and experimental science.

It is noteworthy to mention that two of the Imams of the Ahle-Sunnat, Abu Hanifa and Malik Ibn-e-Anas reaped from the harvest of the knowledge of Imam Sadiq (A.S). In this regards, Abu Hanifa says, "If it was not for those two years [I spent with Ja'afar as-Sadiq] Numan [Abu Hanifah] would have perished"

It is for this reason that the untiring efforts, struggles and endeavors of Imam Sadiq (A.S) in the revival and dissemination of the original Islamic culture became the cause for the Shiite creed being also called as the Jafari religion.

A great jurisprudent of Sunni Muslims, Malik Ibn-e-Anas says about Imam Sadiq (A.S) thus, “no eyes has seen and no ear has heard and on no human heart has passed to see a man in virtue, excellence and earning to be greater that Jafar Ibn Mohammed (A.S)”.

Abu Hanifa, one of the other four great Imams of the Sunni Muslims says about his holiness thus, “ I have not seen a man more learned and jurisprudent than Jafar Ibn Mohammed (A.S)”.

Again, he says, “On the directive of Mansoor, the Abbaside caliphate, I prepared forty questions and went in the presence of Jafar Sadiq (A.S) and asked him about the questions, he replied to all the questions. The answers were so excellent and profound that I had never heard them from any one until that time.”

With regards to the virtues qualities of Imam Sadiq (A.S), He can be describes as: Respect and humbleness in front of the Almighty, bravery and courage in front of the merciless and the tyrants, helping the afflicted and the needy endeavoring and working for earning a livelihood, awe and dignity and perseverance and steadfast. Some examples:

1. One day, when Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S) was having spade in his hand and was working in the agricultural field and he was soaked in perspiration. During this time, Abu Omar Shaibani saw the holy Imam and said to himself: Maybe, the reason that Imam Sadiq (A.S) is working himself with the spade in the field is that he is having no helper of worker, so let me [help you and] perform your work. The holy Imam replied, “ No, I like that one should endeavor and struggle himself to earn his livelihood”.

2. It is reported from the wife of Imam Sadiq (A.S) thus, it was the final hours of the life of Imam Sadiq (A.S) when suddenly he opened his eyes and said to gather all his family members and near ones. When all of them had gathered around him, the holy Imam said , “Our Shafaat ( intercession) will not reach to those who degrade and undervalue their prayers.”

3. Malik Ibn Anas says: We were on a Hajj journey with Imam Sadiq (A.S). when we reached to the place where we had to were and put on the ground from the horse. When he wanted to recite the labbaik:. The voice could not come out from his throat, I told him: O son of the Messenger of Allah, it is inevitable that you should say the Labbaik. In my reply, he said “ How can I be impertinent and dare to say Labbaik when I fear that my Lord will not comply with my request and will reply me, no Labbaik, no”.

Symbol of Shia

What is the symbol of Shia? 

What is Shiite Flag?

What is Sunni symbol?

These are questions that people unfamiliar with Islam think and ask about it in google! They think that all sects of Islam have their own flag, while there is no official flag for Islam. However huge propaganda of non Islamic group of ISIS in the cyberspace, biased some people to think that like countries which have their own flags, Shia and Sunni have some special flags or symbols. 
However I think that there must be an answer for those who search in google for the term "Shia Symbol". After all I found the best symbol for Shia to be AhlulBayt of the Prophet who are innocent according to Quran 33:33 and includes all Twelve Imams of Shiite.

Shia Symbol - Shiite Flag
Shia Symbol - Allah, Muhammad (pbuh) and his AhlulBayt including Fatima (sa) and 12 Imams (as)

Indeed Allah desires to repel all impurity from you, O People of the Household (AhlulBayt), and purify you with a thorough purification.
إِنَّمَا يُرِ‌يدُ اللَّـهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّ‌جْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَ‌كُمْ تَطْهِيرً‌ا ﴿٣٣

Shia or Sunni - Simple Proof

Which religion is right - Shia or Sunni?

There are a lot of books to answer this question, among them are Alghadir, Almurajiat and Nights of Peshawar. However there are several simple proofs for Shia which every Muslim without prejudice will accept them.
Shia - the true sect of Islam - shia or sunni?


Five simple questions from Sunni brothers 

There is a common narration from Sunni and Shia sources that says: everyone who dies and he does not know the Imam of his time, dies the death of ignorance. 
Question #1: Did Fatima (SA), know Imam of his time or not? If she did not, she is died in ignorance, NauzoBillah, and if she did, her Imam was Ali (as) not Abubakr. So Fatima was Shia

Sunni brothers say that the leader must be chosen by a council and shia say that the prophet appointed and mentioned all 12 Imams.
Question #2: Which council appointed the second caliph? Second caliph was appointed by Abubakr not a council! while Aboobakr was appointed by council of 13 people

There is a reliable Hadith from Shia and Sunni sources that says: Caliphs after the prophet (pbuh) are 12 (Twelve successors Hadith). 
Question #3: What are your 12 Imams? Count them and you can not find twelve Imams in Sunni Muslims while shia have exactly twelve Imams

Sunni Muslims, take their religion from four Imams: Imam Malik, Imam Shafi’i, Abu-Hanifeh and Ahmad-ibn-Hanbal. 
Question #4: These four imams you have, lived in what century? And what is their relation with the Caliphs? The Shia Imams are their Caliphs as well. But you have four caliphs and four imams who lived almost 100 years after Khulafa.

Shia Muslims have thousands of prayers and Monajats from their twelve Imams available in several books like Mafatih Aljanan, Sahife Sajjadiey, Almoraqibat, etc. 
Question #5: How many prayers, hymns or praise of the Lord you have quoted from your first three Caliphs or your 4 Imams? Count them and you will find nothing countable.

Now decide, Shia are wrong or Sunni? Unfortunately some extremist Muslims like ISIS say that shia are Kafir! and killing them has the reward of paradise! while grand Sunni scholars like Sheikh Shaltoot have confirmed Shiite as a true Islamic religion.

Google against Shia Muslims

Google shows violent pictures from 7 years ago (2008) for the search term "Shia Muslim" within past week results!
What the free flow of information!

It must be said that this type of mourning (self flagellation, Qameh zani, Tatbir or zanjir zani) marked by x in the following figure, is forbidden in Shia and these people are a minority unaware Muslims which their actions are highlighted by western media.

google is against shia islam and shows violent photos in the first page for search term "shia muslim"w

The following sentences are part of a speech from Imam Khamenei given to scholars of Kohkiluyeh and Boyir Ahmad, Muharram:

Blood mourning (Qam'e Zani) is a part of the culture that was made up. It is an issue that has no relation to religion and, without doubt, Allah is not happy with it.
It is an incorrect action which some people perform – taking a blade in one’s hand and hitting themselves on the head with it spilling their blood. What do they do this for? How is this action considered mourning? Of course, hitting one’s head with their hands is a form of mourning. You have seen over and over again, a person who has had something bad happen to them, hit themselves on their head and chest. This is a normal sign of mourning. But, have you ever seen a person who has had something bad happen to their most loved (ones) hit themselves on the head with a sword until blood flows down? How is this action considered mourning?

Night of Qadr - Shia Islam

Tomorrow night, Ramadan 23, is the most probable night of Qadr according to Shia documents. In this night we should be awake during night and pray for ourselves and the others. There are several doings listed in Mafatih book which we should perform in this night. The best action is praying for Muslims, including ourselves, our parents, etc.

Pay attention to your own wishes, the wishes of your country; the patients, the disabled veterans, the grieved, the worried eyes, the need of the people around you, in your country, in the world of Islam and on the planet earth. On the Night of Qadr, ask God to make all these wishes, every single one of them, come true. (Imam Khamenei 2/17/2000)

Condolences on Martyrdom of Imam Ali

Condolences on martyrdom of the first Imam of Shia Muslims, Imam Ali (as) AmiralMomenin (the grand leader of believers). He were hit on head by sword of Ibne Muljam (may Allah damn him) while in Sajdah of Morning prayer.

There is a narration which says that Imam Ali would give food to the orphans with his own hands so many times that once someone said we wished we were orphaned too so that Imam Ali would indulge us so much!  He would pay visits to the poor and the needy and the troubled and the stranded so often and so incognito that it is commonly said that it was only after he was stabbed that they just began to realize who that merciful person who would visit them and they never new him! (Ayatollah Khamenei, 31/12/1999)

Why do Muslims Fast

All Muslims, Shia and Sunni, fast during the month of Ramadan (Ramazan), i.e. they eat something, called Sahari, before Azan of morning prayer (about 1:30 hour to sunshine) and then don't eat anything during daylight hours until Azan Maghrib (about 15 minutes after sunset). They also must not drink, have intimate relations, swim, etc. After Azan Maghrib, they break their fast (Iftar).
Now, the question is Why do Muslims Fast during Ramadan?
Simple answer is that it is Wajib(obligatory) in Islam for healthy adults according to Quran(2:183):
O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous -
However, it has several advantages which some of them are described in Hadith of Miraj in where the prophet Muhammad(pbuh) ascended to the heaven and talked with Allah:
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) asked Allah: O God! What is the start of worship? He said: start of worship is fasting and silence. My Lord! What is the effect of fasting? Said: fasting leads to wisdom and wisdom leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to certainty; and when a person comes to the position of certainty, it’s no matter, his life is easy or difficult

Islam and Christians - Jesus Christ (Messiah) in Quran

Quran (or Qoran) is the holy book of Muslims which is sent down to the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Its content is not changed during more than 1400 years. Here you can find the opinion of Islam about Jesus Christ and the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. The following sentences are taken from Quran:

They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. 5:72

They have certainly disbelieved who say, "Allah is the third of three (Trinity)." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. 5:73

So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. 5:74

The Messiah, son of Mary, was not but a messenger; [other] messengers have passed on before him. And his mother was a supporter of truth. They both used to eat food. Look how We make clear to them the signs; then look how they are deluded. 5:75

Salavat Shabanieh - A Dua for every day of Shaban

In the name of Allah
It is reported through authentic sources that Imam Ali ibn Al-Hussein (AS)  used to recite the following Salavat every day in Sha`ban at the time sun passes the merdian (waqt-e-Zawal) and on the night of 15th Sha`ban.  The salawat is as under:     
 «اَللّهُمََّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ و َآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ شَجَرَةِ النُّبُوَّةِ وَ مَوْضِعِ الرِّسالَةِ وَ مُخْتَلَفِ الْمَلاَّئِکَةِ وَ مَعْدِنِ الْعِلْمِ وَ اَهْلِ بَیْتِ الْوَحْىِ. اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ و َآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْفُلْکِ الْجارِیَةِ فِى اللُّجَجِ الْغامِرَةِ یَامَنُ مَنْ رَکِبَها وَ یَغْرَقُ مَنْ تَرَکَهَا الْمُتَقَدِّمُ لَهُمْ مارِقٌ وَالْمُتَاَخِّرُ عَنْهُمْ زاهِقٌ وَاللاّزِمُ لَهُمْ لاحِقٌ. اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْکَهْفِ الْحَصینِ وَ غِیاثِ الْمُضْطَرِّ الْمُسْتَکینِ وَ مَلْجَاءِ الْهارِبینَ وَ عِصْمَةِ الْمُعْتَصِمینَ. اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلوةً کَثیرَةً تَکُونُ لَهُمْ رِضاً وَ لِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ اَداَّءً وَ قَضاَّءً بِحَوْلٍ مِنْکَ وَ قُوَّةٍ یا رَبَّ الْعالَمینَ. اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الطَّیِّبینَ الاْبْرارِ الاْخْیارِ الَّذینَ اَوْجَبْتَ حُقُوقَهُمْ وَ فَرَضْتَ طاعَتَهُمْ وَ وِلایَتَهُمْ. اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاعْمُرْ قَلْبى بِطاعَتِکَ وَلا تُخْزِنى بِمَعْصِیَتِکَ وَارْزُقْنى مُواساةَ مَنْ قَتَّرْتَ عَلَیْهِ مِنْ رِزْقِکَ بِما وَسَّعْتَ عَلَىَّ مِنْ فَضْلِکَ وَ نَشَرْتَ عَلَىَّ مِنْ عَدْلِکَ وَ اَحْیَیْتَنى تَحْتَ ظِلِّکَ وَ هذا شَهْرُ نَبِیِّکَ سَیِّدِ رُسُلِکَ شَعْبانُ الَّذى حَفَفْتَهُ مِنْکَ بِالرَّحْمَةِ وَالرِّضْوانِ الَّذى کانَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَیْهِ وَ آلِه وَ سَلَّمَ یَدْاَبُ فى صِیامِهِ وَ قِیامِهِ فى لَیالیهِ وَ اَیّامِهِ بُخُوعاً لَکَ فى اِکْرامِهِ وَاِعْظامِهِ اِلى مَحَلِّ حِمامِهِ. اَللّهُمَّ فَاَعِنّا عَلَى الاِْسْتِنانِ بِسُنَّتِهِ فیهِ وَ نَیْلِ الشَّفاعَةِ لَدَیْهِ اَللّهُمَّ وَاجْعَلْهُ لى شَفیعاً مُشَفَّعاً وَ طَریقاً اِلَیْکَ مَهیَعاً وَاجْعَلْنى لَهُ مُتَّبِعاً حَتّى اَلْقاکَ یَوْمَ الْقِیمَةِ عَنّى راضِیاً وَ عَنْ ذُنُوبى غاضِیاً قَدْ اَوْجَبْتَ لى مِنْکَ الرَّحْمَةَ وَالرِّضْوانَ وَ اَنْزَلْتَنى دارَ الْقَرارِ وَ مَحَلَّ الاْخْیارِ.»

English Translation:
In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
O' Allah! Bestow Your blessing on Muhammad and his progeny-the tree of prophet hood and the afrode of Your Messages, the place of visits of the angels, the mine of Your Knowledge and the people of the Holy House of revelation.
O` Allah I Bestow Your blessing on Mohammad and his progeny who are a boat sailing in the deep waters of fathomless sea.  Safe is he who boarded it and drowned is he who discarded it.  Those who went ahead of them were misled and those legged behind them were ruined and those who adhered to them were united with them.
 O` Allah! Bless Mohammad and his progeny who are the strong refuge, rescue for the distressed and the helpless, shelter for the fugitives and protection.
O` Allah! Bless Mohammad and his Progeny with plenty of Your blessings which should please them and grant them their due and it should be fulfilled with Your might-O` the Lord of the Worlds!
O Allah: (please do) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad--
the pure, the pious, the righteous whose rights have been made incumbent upon us by You
and the obedience to whom has been deemed obligatory upon us by You and whose (divinely commissioned) leadership has been (also) deemed obligatory upon us by You.
O` Allah! Bless Mohammad and his progeny and embellish my heart with obedience to You and disgrace me not with disobedience to You and bless me with tenderness for one struck with poverty from Your sustenance for You have blessed me with affluence in livelihood and because You have displayed Your justice on me and bestowed life on me to live under Your shade.
And this is the month You have attributed to Your Prophet the chief of Your Prophets month of Sha`aban You have encompassed it with your mercy and pleasure.
The Messenger of god used to keep vigil in devotion during its nights and observed fasts during its days humiliating himself before You honoring and respecting it till his departure from this World.
O` Allah! Help us in following his life pattern and in achieving his intercession.
O` Allah! Appoint him as an intercessor for me and his intercession is accepted by You and appoint him to show us a simple path towards You and make me his follower till I meet You on the day of resurrection in a state that You be pleased with me ignoring my sins for You have prescribed mercy and pleasure from you and my entertainment a peaceful abode and the abode of virtuous people

Stop War On Yemen

Its about 50 days that another war is conducted by the puppets of USA and Israel in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia started a child killing war on a great nation, Yemen, only because they said no to alien interventions and decided to make an independent Islamic country.
Just like the other cases in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, the US, EU and some Arab media started the propaganda that we want to return the legal government to Yemen and repel the Houthi rebels!! However Iran is making intervention in Yemen and prevent us from peaceful operations in Yemen! Another joke :)
The truth is that everyday tens of children and women are killed in Yemen and eyes of media are closed on them because no country must wake up and ask for independence. All countries in the world must be under supervision of America (they still think they are a sheriff!) and if some country like Iran or Yemen take another scenario they must be imposed with sanctions or war!
A common attribute of all countries under attack is that they are Shia Muslims (Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Bahrain) and  USA fears from Shia Muslims. They experienced a Shia revolution in Iran by Imam Khomeini in 1979 which is standing against arrogance for about 37 years. Neither 8-year war stopped them nor hard sanctions. They fear that another Islamic revolution take places in Yemen, Bahrain, etc.

Letter of Imam Khamenei to the youth in Europe and North America

 To the Youth in Europe and North America
21/01/2015 #letter4u

 In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful
 To the Youth in Europe and North America,

The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.
I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.

Letter of Imam Khamenei to the Youth of Europe and North America
I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.
Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies.

The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.

By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?

You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam.

My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.

I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.

Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?

Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries?

Letter of Imam Khamenei to the Youth of Europe and North America
I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders.

Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths.

Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.
