The Retirement

The Retirement
The old man, a Christian by religion, had worked all his life; but had not been able to save anything for his old age. Lately he had also become blind. Old age, poverty and blindness had joined hands and he had no other way except begging. He used to stand at the corner of a lane for begging.

Hazrat Fatimah was scarified for the sake of justice and right seeking

Hazrat Fatimah was scarified for the sake of justice and right seeking
The policy, after the death of her father, was an illogical and aggressive policy was “الغايه تبرر الوسيله”‌ [the end justifies the means]. This is the policy of aggression, setting fire to the door, inserting Fatimah (peace be upon her) between the door and the wall causing miscarriage for her, breaking her side, slapping her in the face in order to make Ali (peace be upon him) submit, usurping the Fadak to ...

Imam Hasan al-Askari (A.S.), the Master of Interpreters of the Holy Qur'an
The infallible imams of the Ahlul Bayt (a.s) paid excessive attention to the interpretation (tafsir) of the Holy Qur'an. Each one of them had a school of tafsir, and they were definitely the most aware of the contents of the Qur'an and all its sciences. The master of the pure progeny, Imam Ali (a.s.) was, among all the Prophet's companions, the most aware of the facts and minute details of the Qur'an, its muhkam (clear) verses and mutashabih ...

The Prisoner Who Perpetually Reigns

The Prisoner Who Perpetually Reigns
“O God! You know that I have always wished that you put me in an ideal place where I can say your prayers and You have granted my wish. I praise You and I am grateful to You.” These are not the words of a supplicant worshipping God in luxuriant solitude, while the less fortunate toil day and night for a meager livelihood that barely enables them to perform their obligatory prayers. Nay! These are the words of a person ...

The “Penultimate” Imam

The “Penultimate” Imam
Worship is not the quantity of prayer and fast, it's how much you are cognizant of God." These words are indeed food for thought. They stimulate the mind and make us realize the dynamism of Islam, which is the complete and universal code for all humanity.  No ordinary scholar who had spent any part of his life in trivial matters or un-Islamic behaviour, even for a single moment could, have expressed such words of ...

Distinguished Non – Muslims Ideas about Imam Hossein (as)

Browne (A Literary History of Persia1)-"A reminder of the blood-stained field of Karbala, where the grandson of the Apostle of God fell at length tortured by thirst and surrounded by the bodies of his murdered kinsmen, has been at anytime since then sufficient to evoke, even in the most lukewarm and heedless, the deepest emotions, the most frantic grief and an exaltation of spirit before which pain, danger and death shrink to unconsidered ...
