He was fond of reading

   Author: مکبر 3    Issue:Imam khomeini ،



The Imam khomeini was fond of reading and he still continued with the habit and would read a little until his eyes were fatigued. I remember during holidays when in summer we would either come to Tehran or go to one of the provincial cities, he would read such a large number of various books that those who were responsible for arranging the books for him began to complain. He had read most of the books of the world’s great writers whether in the social or whether in the political fields. He was the most well-read theologian. He had studied the history of Iran frequently as well as the constitutional history.[1]

The Imam khomeini would make good use of all the hours of the day. For example, if the physician would prescribe that walking was good for his health, while acting on the instructions, he would make other use of his walking. For instance, he would take along a small radio set with him for the morning walk and listen to the proceedings of the parliament; or in the afternoons, he would tune in to the foreign radio stations or read the evening newspapers. He would perform at least two tasks simultaneously by acting on the instructions of the physician and also listening to the news of the situation all over the world.[1]

Imam Reza

The lesson Imam Reza teaches us all is that oh, Muslims! Do not get tired of struggling! Do not sleep, as the enemy is always awake and disguises in various forms and costumes, different masks and colorful makeups; be sharp-eyed! Recognize the enemy and learn how to fight the enemy; like Imam Ali Ibn Musa Al-Reza keep struggling from the beginning to the end! The Leader of the Revolution, 11/24/1984

The truth can never be suppressed

   Author: مکبر 3    

SayyidZakzaky-6

It might be possible to oppress a people, ... but the truth can never be suppressed. A flourishing generation can never, at any cost, be dissuaded from the path it has discovered and embraced.
~Ayatollah Khamenei, 25/10/2000

There was an effort by the enemies of Islam to suppress this Awakening - and they managed to suppress it in some areas - but Islamic Awakening is not suppressible. The flag of Islam has been raised and hoisted and the feeling of Islamic identity has been strengthened in Muslims all over the world and it will continue to be strengthened.

ghadir khom

As the successor of the Prophet (PBUH), Imam Ali informs people of an absent Imam from among his descendents who will make world full of justice and remove injustice.

How beautiful it is to combine the event of Ghadir with the words of Imam Ali on his grandson Mahdi.

1. Forgiving

He is so forgiving

2. Shelter

He is a strong shelter

3. Ideal of the good-doers

Whoever comprehends him will find him a glorious light which is an ideal for good-doer 

4. Savior of the Mankind

He breaks all chains and terminates the exploitation of man by man

5. Justice Expander

Imam Ali (PBUH) told his son Hussein (PBUH): “O Hussein! The ninth of your children is a righteous revolutionary. He clarifies the religion and expands justice.”‌

6. Rejoicing

The crowds on earth and heaven are rejoiced by his coming

7. Reward for Steadfast believers

“There will be a long absence for our Imam and beware, those steadfast in their religion whose hearts never darkens by his long absence, they will be on my side in the heaven on the Judgment Day”‌

8. Praying for Him

“O God! Make his occultation and reappearance the end for all sadness and remove all difference and enmity by him”‌.

Ghadir means swearing allegiance to Imamate for which Ali (PBUH) is the symbol and Mahdi is the last.

There is a basic question here:

Are we ready to accept the Imam of the Time or our benefits and lust makes us lose the way?!

Are we among those preparing for the green and beautiful future through knowledge and self-education?!

Characteristics of Imam Mahdi’s Government

   Author: مکبر 3    Issue:Imam Mahdi ،

imam mahdi (a.s)

Promotion of Knowledge and Ethics

Imam Mahdi’s reappearance is the day of endless torment for unbelievers while it is happiness and mercy for virtuous believers. In that era, people’s heart will turn kinder and their morality will be improved. All material thoughts will focus on spirituality.

According to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), all people obey and worship Allah and do their best in performing religious practices. In other words, when one perfect and immaculate human being, who is able to teach people to behave wisely, rules over the world, people naturally welcome worshipping of Allah and all moral corruptions will be removed. In addition, if a few disturb and bother others and prevent them from thinking wisely and behaving morally, they will be advised in the first place, else they will be removed. [1]

Scientific Movement

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “When the world is drowned in ignorance, he (Imam Mahdi) will reappear and make every one benefit from knowledge and wisdom.”‌ [2]

Commenting on the same issue, Imam Sadiq (A.S) says: “There are 27 letters of knowledge. The knowledge that has been revealed till date through all the Prophets (PBUT) is the interpretation of only two of those letters. When our Qaem (AJ) will rise, then Allah will reveal the remaining 25 letters and will add to the existing two letters. In this way knowledge with all 27 letters will become complete.”‌

This Hadith clearly defines the rapid scientific progress of Imam Mahdi’s movement in his era. It also refers to the most powerful and excellent education and training system in that era. Therefore, in that era, the scientific changes and developments will be much more than the previous eras.

Dealing with Offenders

In every society, there are some people who unknowingly commit sins and eventually they are warned through ‘enjoining good and forbidding evil’ which simply convince them stop committing evil deeds. However, there are some others who notice their mistakes only through strict and decisive implementation of divine commandments. Imam Mahdi’s reappearance is the outset of spring for the faithful and winter for wrongdoers.

Quoting the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), Imam Javad (A.S) states: “He will implement the rules and divine commandments.”‌ [3]

imam mahdi (a.s)

Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S) has said: "There are two characteristics, which surpass all others: having faith in Allah, and benefiting one's brothers (in faith)."

One of the major responsibilities of Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S), for which he endeavored earnestly, was to introduce the Imam after him to the Shiites and to inform them of the next Imam's occultation. At the time, the Abbasid dynasty, having had heard the words of the previous Imams (A.S) and those of Prophets' (A.S. about the savior that would be born to Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S), were in close watch of Imam Hassan's (A.S) residency to make sure he would not have a son. Thereupon, Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S) had to hide his son from the guards sent by the government and in that manner save his son's life. After the martyrdom of Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S), Imam Mahdi (A.S) went into the periods of his short and long occultation, whereupon most Shiites were deprived from seeing their Imam. Upon this matter, at the time of Imam al-Askari (A.S) it was necessary to introduce Imam Mahdi (A.S) to certain Shiites, and clarify his processes of occultation. Many narrations have been recorded on this matter, but in this excerpt we will refer to only one.

Ahmad ibn Is'haq, one of the reliable companions of Imam Hassan al-Askari (A.S), has narrated: "In one of my visits to the Imam, I had intended to ask about his successor. Yet before I had spoken, the Imam (A.S) said: 'O Ahmad ibn Is'haq! From the creation of Adam, Allah (SWT) has never left the earth without His successor on people, and will never do so until the Day of Judgment…'

I asked: 'O son of the messenger of Allah! So who is the successor and Imam after you?'

Imam Askari (A.S) stood up immediately, and entered the house. He then returned carrying a three year old boy, whose face was filled with a halo of light. He said:

'O Ahmad! If it were not for your eminence in the eyes of Almighty Allah and His chosen people, I would not have shown you my child. His name and nickname are the same as that of Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH); and it is he who will fill the earth with justice after it has been corrupted with oppression…

By Allah (SWT)! He will live through a long occultation from which people will not survive perdition and deviation, except for those who stand firm on believing in his Imamate, and those who are honored with the opportunity to pray for haste in his reappearance."

Ahmad ibn Ishaq narrates: "the minute I asked Imam Askari (A.S): 'Will any sign or miracle appear to make me confident?' the child began speaking:

'I am the remainder of Allah (Baqiatullah) on earth; the one who will take revenge on the enemies of Allah; and after seeing me, do not search for any other signs!"…

baqiyatallah

In numerous traditions, it is stated that the term BaqiyatAllah in verse 86 of Surah Hud is a reference to the person of Imam Mahdi (A.S) or some of the other Imams (A.S). For example, the book IkmÁl al-Din narrates the following from Imam Baqir (A.S): The first words which the Mahdi (A.S) will speak after his rise will be this verse: “‘What remains of Allah’s provision is better for you, should you be faithful…”He will then say: I am the BaqiyatAllah and his proof and his caliph amongst you. After that, no one will greet him except that he will say:  Peace be upon you oh BaqiyatAllah Fe Arzeh. ( اَلسَّلامُ عَلَیْکَ یا بَقِیَّةَ اللّهِ فِی أَرْضِه )
In regards to the verses of the Qur’an, it is true that while a verse may have been revealed in regards to a specific situation, it can also pertain in a general sense to other issues as well. This can extend and apply even in to other centuries in regards to various issues which are general in nature. It is correct that the aforementioned verse is specifically referring to the people of Shuaayb and the term BaqiyatAllah is referring to lawful divine benefit; yet at the same time, anything or anyone that is beneficial from God can also be considered as BaqiyatAllah. All of the prophets and divine leaders are a form of BaqiyatAllah. All of the truthful leaders who fight against the enemies of humanity can be considered as a form of BaqiyatAllah, this similarly applies to the soldiers and fighters who strive in such a path.
Since Imam Mahdi (A.S) is the last leader and his battle will be the final revolution in the history of mankind, it makes sense that the term BaqiyatAllah applies to him and he is indeed worthy of such a title. In addition, he is what remains of the Prophet (PBUH) and the rest of the Imams (A.S).
