imam sadjad (a.s)

Imam Sadjad (A.S) delivered another sermon in the precincts of Medina for the people who had come to see the sorrowful caravan of captives. This sermon, too, deeply affected people so that a year after Ashura tragedy people of Medina revolted against Bani Umayyah. Their revolution is known as Harrah Uprising.

Purposeful and Saddening Tears

Imam Sadjad (A.S) used to shed tears on every occasion to commemorate the martyrs of Karbala. Today, all the lamentations that have formed the culture of Karbala come from his incessant efforts. When they asked the Imam about his crying he said: “Woe on to you! Prophet Jacob (PBUH) had twelve sons; however, when Allah took away one of them, grief overtook him so much that his hair was whitened, his back was bent, and he lost his vision due to excessive crying, even though his son was actually alive. But I witnessed with my own eyes how my father, my brother, and seventeen of my family members were killed. So how do you expect my sadness to be relieved or my lamentation to be over?"[i]

Supporting Anti-Oppressor Uprisings

One of the major impacts of Ashura Uprising was creating the spirit of epic and courage among the Muslims. The free people of the world took aspirations from theAshura Uprising and the revelations of Imam Sadjad (A.S) and Hazrat Zeinab to rise against the despotic rulers. Three distinguished uprisings were Tavvabin, Mokhtar Saqafi, and Medina.

!Watch Those Eyes

   Author: مکبر 3    Issue:Muslim Family ،


Many of us are very proactive when it comes to our medical needs. We get yearly physicals, go to the dentist twice a year, and some of us even make sure to get our monthly massage. One thing, however, for which many people wait until a problem arises to see a professional, is the eyes. I can say this because as an eye doctor, it is a daily occurrence for me to see patients who haven't had their eyes checked in five or more years. The eyes are one of the sensors Allah has given us to experience His wonders and by which to also gain humility by lowering our gaze. They should be taken care of and treasured just like any important organ of our bodies....

الإمامُ الباقرُ علیه السلام : إنّ الحسینَ بنَ علیٍّ علیهما السلام لمّا حَضَرهُ الّذی حَضَرهُ ، دَعا ابنَتَهُ الكبرى‏ فاطمةَ بنتَ‏الحسینِ علیهما السلام ، فدفَعَ إلَیها كِتاباً مَلْفوفاً ، ووَصِیَّةً ظاهِرةً. وكانَ علیُّ بنُ الحسینِ علیهما السلام مَبْطوناً مَعهُم لا یَرَونَ إلّا أنّه لِما بهِ ، فَدفَعَتْ فاطمةُالكِتابَ إلى‏ علیِّ بنِ الحسینِ علیهما السلام ثُمّ صارَ واللَّهِ ذلكَ الكتابُ إلَینا ... فیهِ واللَّهِ ما یَحتاجُ إلَیهِ وُلْدُ آدمَ مُنذُ خلَقَ اللَّهُ آدمَ إلى‏ أن تَفْنَى الدُّنیا .1

440.Imam al-Baqir (AS) said, 'Verily when al-Husayn b. Ali's time of death came near, he called for his eldest daughter Fatima bint al-Husayn, and handed over to her a wrapped note. Ali b. al-Husayn was with them, but had a severe stomach ache, the reason for which was unknown. Fatima gave the note to Ali b. al- Husayn. Now, by Allah, that note has reached us... By Allah, it contains all that mankind would ever need from the time that Allah created Adam until the end of the world.'2

His Virtues

   Author: مکبر 3    Issue:(Imam Hasan (as ،

الإمامُ زینُ العابدینَ علیه السلام : إنَّ الحَسَنَ بنَ عَلیِّ بنِ أبی طالِبٍ علیه السلام كانَ أعبَدَالناسِ فی‏زَمانِهِ وَأزهَدَهُم وَأفضَلَهم، وَكانَ إذا حَجَّ حجَّ ماشیاً وَرُبَّما مَشى حافیاً ، وَكانَ إذا ذُكِرَ المَوتُ بَكى ، وَإذا ذُكِرَ القَبرُ بَكى ، وَإذا ذُكِرَ البَعثُ وَالنُشورُ بَكى ، وَإذا ذُكِرَ المَمَرُّ عَلى الصِّراطِ بَكى ، وَإذا ذُكِرَ العَرضُ عَلى اللَّهِ تَعالى ذِكرُه شَهِقَ شَهقَةً یُغشى عَلَیهِ مِنها ، وَكانَ إذا قامَ فی صَلاتِهِ تَرتَعِدُ فَرائِصُهُ بَینَ یَدی رَبِّهِ عزّ وجلّ ، وَكانَ إذا ذُكِرَ الجَنَّةُ وَالنارُ اضطَرَبَ‏اضطِرابَ‏السَّلیمِ وَسأل اللَّهَ تعالى الجَنَّةَ وَتَعوذُ بِهِ مِنَ النَّارِ .۱

۴۲۲.Imam Zayn al-'Abidin (AS) said, 'Verily Hasan b. Ali b. Abu Talib was the best worshipper of his time, the most abstemious and the best of them all. Whenever he went for hajj, he went on foot, and sometimes even bare-footed. When he remembered death, he cried. When he remembered the grave, he cried. When he was reminded of the Day of Judgment and Resurrection, he cried. When he was reminded of the crossing over the Bridge [outstretched over Hell], he cried. When he was reminded of the great exposure before Allah - exalted be His remembrance - he would gasp in such a way that he would faint. When he stood for his prayers, his limbs trembled before his Lord. When he was reminded of Paradise and the Fire, he was greatly disturbed as if bitten by a snake, and asked Allah for Paradise and sought refuge in Him from the Fire.' ۲
