Poison screaming

D: Hey, i have heard KAAttOU RANi likes you a lot and is deeply in love with you?
D: So, is she?
SCARfACE: How will i know? She hasn’t said anything to me.
D: Come on, she must have given some signs!
SCARfACE: Perhaps, but i never witnessed anything conclusive.
D: Conclusive! Who are you, an evidence seeking idiot?
SCARfACE: Look, as long as she keeps her love to herself, how would I know that, You know what last words She has said to mE…She said…ShE HAtES mE…I dont remember when was the last time ShE said ShE loves mE….its been ages that I have heard hER voice…its been so long that ShE had said ShE love mE…I had been dying to hear this from hER…but I never heard hER saying that ShE loves mE…Its been like months now that I have seen hER face….It’s seems that it is her personal matter, and like it doesn’t concern me. If she ever did reveal it, i’ll tell her that I love her more than anyone could ever love her. I love her madly and deeply. But maybe  cannot be togather in this world and maybe thats why she would think that I wont be able to return her feelings. Though i hope that these rumours are wrong, because i hate to disappoint someone who only means world to me. She knows that and yet still ShE dont trust mE… :@

Poison is asking where are you

Look deep inside me..
Can you see the flame…
It burns so bright..
It burns only for you..
It’ll never fade…
Forever it will always remain..
Faithfully it will always be true…
Lay your hand on me…
Feel mY heart beat
To your voice…
To your gentle caress
This heart is yours with a love so sweet…
Faithfully my love you I’ll always confess…
Look into my eyes…
Where your soul lives…
See the emotions stirring that I can’t control..
Feel its strength…
Feel the passion it gives…
Faithfully I’ll cherish your soul…
Enter my dreams…
Journey through my mind…
And fly with me freely in our own place…
Where all our troubles will be left behind…
As I faithfully I’ll hold you in my embrace….

21st Ramadan-Night of Dead of Imam Ali (as) After Being Attack at Kufa Mosque

August 22nd, 2011, posted in Ramazan, Saying Of Hazrat Ali ( A.S )


In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The commander of faithful, the father of eloquence, the caretaker of the orphans, the shelter of the needy and the perfect of all humans after Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw). Born in the House of Allah, Holy Kaaba, and martryed in the House of Allah, Masjid-e-Kufa. He died on the 21st day of Ramadan 40 A.H. and buried in Najaf al-Ashraf (Iraq).

On the eve of the martyrdom of Imam Ali (as) we take this opportunity to extend our heartiest condolences to Imam of the time, Imam Mahdi (a.s) and the Muslim world. Oh Allah (SWT) help us live the life of Imam Ali (as)!

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) had prophesied his departure from this world several days before hand, and on the day of his martyrdom he mysteriously desired his sons Imam Hasan and Imam Hussain (as) to offer their morning prayers in the house and not to accompany him as they usually did to the mosque of Kufa. When Imam Ali (as) was leaving his abode, the household birds began making a great noise and when one of Imam Ali’s servants attempted to quieted them, Imam Ali (as) said, “Leave them alone, for their cries are only lamentations foreboding my death.”

On the 19th of the month of Holy Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan) of the year 40 A.H, Imam Ali (A.S) came to the mosque in Kufa for his morning prayers. Imam Ali (A.S)gave the call for prayer (Azaan) and became engaged in leading the congregation. Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam pretending to pray, stood just behind Imam Ali (A.S), and when Imam Ali (A.S)was in a state of prostration, Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam dealt a heavy stroke with his sword, inflicting a deep wound on Imam Ali’s (A.S) head.

This was the time when Imam Ali (as) uttered his famous words : “Fuzto warab-il-Kaaba” – “By the Rab of Kaaba, I am successful”.

Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had prophesied the assassination of Imam Ali (A.S)and his issues. Regarding Imam Ali (A.S) Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had said, “O Ali! I see before my eyes thy beard dyed with the blood of thy forehead.”

They assassinated Imam Ali (A.S) at his finest time – the hour of standing before Allah, the Exalted, during a prayer of submission, in the best of days, while fasting during the month of Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan); during the most glorious Islamic duties, while preparing to wage jihad, and in the highest and most pure divine places, the Mosque of Kufa.

May joy be to Amir al-Muminin Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (A.S) and a blessed afterlife!

The crime of assassinating Imam Ali (A.S) remains one of the most cruel, brutal and hideous, because it was not committed against one man, but against the whole rational Islamic leadership. By assassinating Imam Ali (A.S), they actually aimed at assassinating the message, the history, the culture and the nation of Muslims embodied in the person of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (A.S). In doing so, the Islamic nation lost its guide of progress, and at the most wondrous opportunity in its life after the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

Imam Ali (A.S) suffered from his wound for three days, and He (A.S) passed away on 21st of the month of Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan) at an age of 63 years.

During these three days, he (A.S) entrusted his son, Imam Hasan (A.S) with the Imamate of guiding the nation ideologically and socially. During those three days, as during all his life, he never ceased remembering Allah, praising Him, and accepting Him and His ordinance.

Likewise, he continued giving pieces of advice and directions leading to good, pointing to the right, defining the way to guidance, explaining the course for deliverance, calling for the observance of Allah’s ordinances, and warning against following one’s ill desires and set-backs from not carrying out the divine message.

The following is one piece of advice offered to his sons, Imam Hasan (pbuh) and Imam Hussain (pbuh), as well as to his people, the nation and coming generations:

“I advise you to fear Allah, and not to run after (the pleasure of) the world, even if it may run after you. Do not be sorry for anything from it which you have been denied. Say the truth and act for (Allah’s) reward. Be an enemy of the oppressor, and be a helper of the oppressed.”

“I advise you, my children, my household and all those who may receive my message, to fear Allah, to arrange your affairs well, to maintain good relations among yourselves, for I have heard your grandfather (pbuh) saying: ‘Good relations are better than prayer and fasting in general.'”

“(Fear) Allah when handling matters of orphans. Do not let them starve, nor allow them to be lost as long as you are there.”

“(Fear) Allah in respect to your neighbors, for they were the trust of your Prophet (pbuh). He went on asking us to take care of them, so much that we thought he would make them heirs (of our heritage).”

“(Fear) Allah in respect to the Holy Quran, (take care that) no one may excel you in following its tenets.”

“(Fear) Allah in respect to prayer, as it is the pillar of your religion.”

“(Fear) Allah in respect to your Lord’s House (Kaaba), do not forsake it so long as you live, because if you do you will not be looked upon with respect.”

“(Fear) Allah in respect to Jihad, fight with your wealth, your lives and your tongues, in the way of Allah.”

“Have mutual liaison and give-and-take. Beware of turning your faces from, and of renouncing, one another. Do not abandon bidding good and forbidding evil, lest vicious people may overrule you, and then in such a case, your invocations will not be responded to (by Allah).”

Then he said: “O, Banu Abdul Muttalib, certainly I do not want you to wade through the blood of the Muslims, crying: Amir al-Muminin was murdered. You certainly kill for me no one but my killer.”

“Wait till I die by this stroke of him (Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam), then strike a single stroke against him, and do not disfigure his body, for I had heard the Holy Prophet (pbuh) saying: ‘Avoid mayhem even with a rabid dog.'”

Such was the heroic end of this great man! The loss to the Mission and the nation was the gravest after the loss of the Holy Prophet (pbuh).

By the death of Imam Ali (A.S) the nation lost:

A heroism that had become the song of the time;

A courageous history that has never dreamt of its like;

A wisdom no one can fathom, save Allah;

A purity, the like of which was only in the prophets;

An abstinence from the pleasures of life that could be attained only by the nearest to Allah;

An eloquence such as to be the echo of Book; and

A jurisprudence, and a thorough knowledge of the laws of religion, that made him the ‘gateway of the city’ of the Prophet’s knowledge, and the authority to whom the Islamic nation referred in all its affairs.

Peace be upon Amir al-Muminin the day he was born, the day he was martyred on his altar, and the day he shall be raised alive.

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds.

20th Ramazan

August 21st, 2011, posted in Ramazan


Amir Al-Mumineen Imam Ali (AS) was the son of Abu Tablib bin Abdul Mutalib and the cousin of the Holy Apostle of God, Mohammed bin Abdul Mutalib al-Hashimi. His father, Abu Talib, the chief of the Bani Hashim , was the uncle and the guardian of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the person who had brought the prophet to his house and raised him as his own son. After Muhammad was chosen for his prophetic mission, Abu Talib continued to support and protect him from the evil of the infidels among the Arab’s and the Quraysh.

His mother was the Holy Fatema(AS), daughter of Asad bin Hashim bin Abd Manaf. She was also like a mother to the messenger of the of God, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and indeed Muhammad was brought up under her care. The prophet was grateful for her kindness and she was among the first to believe in his message. She emigrated with him in the great hija (flight of emigration). When she died, the prophet shrouded her with his own shirt in order to protect her from the insects of the earth, and he laid her to rest in her grave.

Imam Ali was born in the Sacred House (kabah). His mother stayed in the Kabah for three days and, as the fourth day approached she went out from those confines carrying her new-borne baby in her arms. To her great surprise, she found the Holy Prophet anxiously waiting to receive the child.

The birth of Imam Ali in the holy Kabah is unique and he was brought up under the care and affection of the Holy Prophet himself. As Imam Ali stated “The Holy Prophet brought me up in his own morsel. I followed him wherever he went, like a baby-camel following its mother. Each day a new aspect of his character would beam out of his noble person and I would accept it and follow it as a command”. (Nahjul-Balaghah)

When the prophet Muhammad was receiving revelation from the mouth of the archangel Gabriel in the cave of Hira, Imam Ali was the first to witness the birth of the new message. At an early age, between ten, he became the first person to accept Islam, Imam Ali was at the right hand of the Holy Prophet, and was his bravest and most useful supporter.

The emigration, or Hijra , from Mecca to Medina was the first opportunity for the believers to escape from their opposition. The prophet decided to emigrate while the leaders of the Quraysh were planning to assassinate him in the dark of the night. Imam Ali slept in the prophet’s bed so that the men stationed to kill the Messenger of God would think that he was still within their grasp. Thus, Imam Ali provided sufficient time for the Holy Prophet to escape to safety under the cover of darkness. Imam Ali has thus given us one of the first examples of self-sacrifice in Islam.

After the departure of the Prophet Muhammad, Imam Ali gave back to the people all the trusts and charges that they had left with him. Later, he left for Medina with his mother and the daughter of the Prophet, Fatema(AS), and two other noble ladies. In Medina, Imam Ali was always in the company of the Holy Prophet both in private and in public. The Prophet gave Fatema away in marriage –his sole , beloved daughter – to Imam Ali. When the Holy Prophet was creating bonds of brotherhood among his companions, he selected Imam Ali as his brother.

Ali was present in all the wars in which the Prophet participated, except the Battle of Tabuk , when he was ordered to stay in Medina in the Place of the Holy Prophet. He did not retreat in any battle nor did he turn his face away from the enemy. He never disobeyed the Prophet and the Prophet said “Ali is never separated from the truth nor the truth from Ali”.

When Muhammad was coming back from his farewell pilgrimage he stopped at Ghadhir Khum, on the 18th of the month of Dhul-Hijja (10th March 632 AD), in order to make an announcement to the pilgrims who had accompanied him from the Mecca. After the noon prayers, the Prophet sat on the pulpit and made his last public address to the large gathering before his death three months later. Taking Imam Ali by the hand, Muhammad asked his followers whether he was not superior in authority, awlah, to the believers. The crowd cried out that he was. He then declared, “ He of whom I am the Mawla’ (the patron, master, leader) Ali is also the mawla’. O God the friend of he who is his (Ali’s) friend, and be the enemy of he who is his (Ali’s) enemy”.

On the day of the demise of the Holy Prophet, Imam Ali was thirty-three years old. Although he was foremost in religious virtues, and the most outstanding among the companions of the Prophet, he was pushed aside and was cut off from most public affairs. He retreated to his house where began to train competent individuals in the Divine Sciences, and in this way he passed twenty-five years of the caliphate of the first three caliphs. When the third caliph was killed, people gave their allegiance to Imam Ali and he subsequently became the fourth caliph.

During his caliphate, which lasted for nearly four years and nine months, Ali followed the path of the Holy Prophet and gave his caliphate the form of spiritual movement and renewal, initiating many reforms. Naturally, these reforms were against the interests of certain parties that sought their own personal benefites. As a result, a group of sahaba (foremost among whom were Talha and Zubair, who also gained the support of Aisha , the Prophet’s wife, and especially Muawiya, a long time and committed enemy of the Prophet Muhammad during his lifetime) made a pretext on the death of the third caliph, Uthman, and raised their heads in opposition. They began a serious revolt and rebelled against Imam Ali.

Imam Ali had to fight a number of wars, such as that near Basra which was known as the Battle of Siffin against Muawiyah on the borders of Iraq and Syria and another one against the Khawarij in the battle known as Nahrawan.

The death of Imam Ali occurred before dawn on Friday 21st of Ramadhan, in the year 404AH. He was the victim of the sword of Ibin Muljuim al-Muradi , may God curse him, who attended the mosque of Kufa which he had come out of in order to wake the people up for prayers on the night of the nineteenth of that holy month. Mulkim had been lying in wait for Imam Ali from the beginning of the night. When the Imam passed by, the assassin pretended to be asleep amid a group of others. Suddenly, he sprang out and struck Imam Ali on the top of the head with a sword which was poisoned. The Imam lingered on for nearly three days in a very poor state. Soon after, he died. His two sons, the Holy Imam s Hasan (AS) and Hussain (AS) washed and shrouded him according to his own bequest. Then they carried him to al-Ghari in Najaf where they buried him quickly.

During the four years and nine months of his caliphate, Imam Ali was not able to eliminate the disturbed conditions which were prevalent throughout the Islamic world, but he was successful in many ways. As a result of his just and upright manner of living he revealed once again the beauty and attractiveness if the way if of live of the Holy Prophet and Islam, especially to the younger generation. In contrast to the imperial grandeur and ostentatious habits offered and exhibited so vainly by the likes of Muawiyah and other Umayyad offspring, Imam Ali lived in simplicity and humility, never favouring his friends   or relations and family above others, nor preferring wealth to poverty or brute force to weakness. Despite cumbersome and strenuous difficulties which absorbed much of his time he left behind among the Islamic community a valuable treasure of divine sciences and Islamic intellectual discipline. Nearly 11,000 of his proverbs and sayings on different intellectual, religious and social subjects have been recorded. He established Arabic grammar and laid the basis for Arabic literature. He was the first in Islam to delve directly into the questions of metaphysics combining intellectual rigour and logical demonstration. He taught a large number of Islamic servents and religious scholars, among whom are found a number ascetics and Gnostics, who were the forefathers of Sufis. Such men included Uways al-Qarani , Kmail al-Tammar, others among hid disciples became the first teachers of jurisprudence , theology , Quranic commentary and recitation.

19th Ramazan

August 21st, 2011, posted in Ramazan, Saying Of Hazrat Ali ( A.S )

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Allah says in His Glorious Book :

And among men is he who sells himself to seek the pleasure of Allah; and Allah is Affectionate to the servants. (2:207)

Only Allah is your Vali and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayers and pay the poor-rate while they bow. (5:55).

This is Ali the man who has sold himself to God. His mind became the mind that opened up on God by clinging to the Right… His heart became big enough to love all people for it is the heart that was big enough to love Allah…This is Ali’s secret.He did not think about himself. He only thought to please God… That is why he used to say to the people… that he was not like any of them… He wants them for God, while they want him for themselves.

Ali was an image of the Messenger( SAW) . He was raised by Muhammad( SAW) who nurtured his mind, personality and soul, until he became an image of the Prophet( SAW) .

When he became the commander of the faithful, the Imam(a.s.) used to say to the people who had conflicting opinions regarding his caliphate:

You the people of conflicting souls and dispersed hearts…I call you for the Right and you run away from it, like a goat running away from a lion …There is no way that I can climb with you to the level of Justice and straighten the deviation away from the Right…

This was Ali’s tragedy:
He wanted to raise the nation to the top but they wanted to stay at the bottom and chose not to listen to him or learn from him.

The Role of the caliph :

Then Ali talks about his role as a ruler, and explains why he accepted this post, and emphasizes that he wanted to serve and had no personal ambitions or interests… Then he talks to God, as a prophet on an Imam should when he shoulders a responsibility feeling that he is responsible before God in the first place and to the nation in the second.

Thus the Imam(a.s.) stands in submission to say to Allah:

O God… you know that I did not seek to engage in any struggle for power or money or such national benefits men might be tempted to acquire, but to defend God’s religion and seek justice and reform in God’s land, so that “The wronged and the back trodden will feel safe” and your laws will be observed… I was the first to be called for Islam and the first to respond to the call.. ”No one has preformed prayers before me except God’s Messenger”.

He was a Muslim in his heart and mind before the message was revealed , then when the Prophet (SAW) called him to Islam he was ready to adopt what has already lived in his mind and soul…

The caller and the militant

Thus, the Imam lived Islam as a kid and he grew up to vow as a young man that he will dedicate himself to the cause of Allah as a caller and a fighter…

He lived in the Messenger’s house and used to say:
“the first house in Islam held three: God’s Messenger, Khadja and me”

And when the Messenger( SAW) wanted the Imam(a.s.) to sleep in his bed, he asked only if this would secure his safety. Then he graciously accepted.

Ali was also the man whom the Messenger( SAW)chose to return all what the people of Makkah have entrusted him with. He was also the bravest fighter in the battle of “Badr” where he killed half of the those the infidels lost, and took part in killing the other half… to the extent that Gabriel was saying while the angels were cheering the Muslims: “There is no man (champion or fighter for a cause) except Ali (a.s.) and there is no sword except Ali and there is no sword except Zilfiqur (Ali’s sword ). He was the sword that vowed it will only fight for a just cause.

He used to move from one war to another, not because he liked to fight but to defend Islam and fight those who wanted to thwart Islam and kill it in its curdle. He was also the caller who learnt all the Islamic sciences his teacher, the Prophet( SAW) , taught him, to the extent that the Messenger( SAW) said:

“I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate”.

In the battle of Al-Ahzab, he fought on infidel fierce fighter called Amr bin Abd Wid, whom all the Muslims were afraid to. And on the eve of the battle of Uhud Muhammad( SAW)said:

“I will give the banner tomorrow to someone who loves God and His Messenger( SAW), and who is loved by God and His Messenger”…He is a man that attacks and does not retreat until Allah grant us victory”

This medal the Prophet( SAW) gave to no one else indicates that Ali ,just as the prophet has said, is worthy of the love of Allah and His Messenger, for he is the right in its entirety. He is as Muhammad( SAW) said:

“Ali is with the Right and the Right is with Ali, May Allah turn the Right with him wherever he turns”.

Then when the Messenger gathered the Muslims in Ghadir Khum , having been told by Allah that if he did not convey what was revealed to Him, he would not have conveyed God’s Message… The Messenger(SAW) stood up and raised Ali’s hand and said:

Whoever I am his master , then Ali is his master.. . But things changed and events turned out to deviate the Muslims from the straight path.

Nevertheless, Ali (a.s.) remained patient and nothing could change his dedication to Islam. He decided to “to keep the peace as long as the affairs of Muslims were maintained and the only wrong inflicted was against me personally”. Ali’s sole concern was to keep the state of peace among Muslims and prevent internal strife. He believed that the unity of Muslims is the weapon that safeguards their strength and dignity… He was the champion of unity who helped those who set him aside and took his place, because the issue was not personal, but that of the Message.

Even when he became a caliph, they planted mines on his road and forced him to engage in several wars he wanted none of. His sole goal was to open up on Muslims peacefully and lead them to straight path of Islam but they did not let him.

On the 19th of the month of Holy Ramadan (Mah e Ramzan) of the year 40 A.H, Imam Ali (A.S) came to the mosque in Kufa for his morning prayers. Imam Ali (A.S) gave the call for prayer (Azaan) and became engaged in leading the congregation. Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam pretending to pray, stood just behind Imam Ali (A.S), and when Imam Ali (pbuh) was in a state of prostration, Abd-al-Rahman ibn Muljam dealt a heavy stroke with his sword, inflicting a deep wound on Imam Ali’s (A.S) head.

This was the time when Imam Ali (as) uttered his famous words : “Fuzto warab-il-Kaaba” – “By the Rab of Kaaba, I am successful”.
