Imam Muhammad Al-Mahdi (a.s)

Imam Muhammad Al-Mahdi (a.s) said:

Ref: al-Islam.org

 

اَقدَارُ اللهِ لاَ تُغَالَبُ ،وَاِرَادَتُهُ لاَ تُرَدُّ، وَتَوَفِيقُهُ لاَ يُسبَقُ

Divine destinies will never be over whelmed or overcome; Divine Will does never get rejected; Nothing can exceed divine Grace

 

اِنَّ اللهَ تعالی لَم يَخلُقِ الخَلقَ عَبَثاً وَلا اَهمَلَهُم سُدیَّ

Allah has not created the creation in vain and has not let them go aimless and without purpose

 

 

بَعَثَ مُحَمَّدً صَلَّی اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَآلِهِ رَحمَةً لِلعالَمين وَتَمَّمَ بِهِ نِعمَتَهُ وَخَتَمَ بِهِ اَنبِياءَهُ وَاَرسَلَهُ اِلَی النّاسِ کافَّة

Allah (swt) raised Prophet Mohammed (saw) as kindness for the universes and completed His favors with him, and ended the (series of) Prophets by him. And sent him towards ALL people (for their guidance).

 

 

فِاِنَّهُ عَزَّوَجَلَّ يَقُولُ:« اَلم أَحَسِبَ النّاسُ اَن يُترَکُوا اَن يَقُولُوا امَنّاوَهُم لا يُفتَنُونَ» کَيفَ يَتَساقَطُونَ في الفِتنَةِ وَيَتَرَدَّدُونَ فیِ الحَيرَةِ وَيَأخُذُونَ يَميناً وَشِمالاً فارَقُوا دِينَهُم اَمِ اَرتابُوا اَم عانَدُوا الحَقَّ اَم جَهِلُوا ماجاءَت بِهِ الرِّواياتُ الصِادِقَةُ وَالأَخبارُ الصَّحِيحَةُ اَو عَلِمُوا ذلِکَ فَتَناسَوا ما يَعلَمُونَ اَنَّ الاَرضَ لا تَخلُو مِن حُجَّةٍ اِمّا ظاهِراً وَامّا مَغمُوراً

Allah (swt) says “ALIF LAM MEEM (الم) Do men think that they will be left alone on saying we believe, & not tried?”
So he says: ‘How people have undergone tests and trials, and how do they wonder around in astonishment and bewilderment, sometime to the left and sometimes to the right. They have been detached from their religion or involved in doubts or have become the enemy of the Truth or they are ignorant of the true traditions and correct prophetic information, or they intentionally forget what they know that the earth is never devoid of the Authority of Allah (the Prophet or Imam) whether he is evident and apparent or hidden and concealed (from the eyes)

 

 

أمَا سَمِعتُمُ اللهَ عَزَّوَجَلَّ يَقُولُ« يا اَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنُوا أَطيعُوا اللهَ وَأَطيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولیِ الأَمرِمِنکُم» هَل أَمرِ اِلاّ بِما هُوَ کائِنٌ اِلی يَومِ القِيامَةِ؟ أَوَلَم تَرَوا أَنَّ اللهَ عَزَّوَجَلَّ جَعَلَ لَکُم مَعاقِلَ تَأوُون إِلَيهَا وَأَعلاَماً تَهتَدُونَ بِهامِن لَدُون آدَمَ عَلَيهِ السَّلامُ اِلی اَن ظَهَرَ المَاضِي (أَبُو مُحَمَّد) صَلَواتُ اللهِ عَلَيهِ کُلَّما غابَ عَلَمٌ بَدا عَلَمٌ وَاِذا أَفَلَ نَجمٌ طَلَعَ نَجمٌ، فَلَمَّا قَبَضَهُ اللهُ إلَيهِ ظَنَنتُم أَنَّ اللهَ عَزَّوَجَلَّ قَد قَطَعَ السّببَ بَينَهُ وَبَينَ خَلقِهِ . کَلاّ ما کانَ ذلِکَ وَلا يَکُونَ حَتّی تَقُومَ السّاعَةُ وَيَظهَرَ اَمرُاللهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَهُم کارِهُونَ

Have you not heard the word of Allah that “O believers obey Allah and the Messenger (saw) and those in authority from among you”. Has Allah ordained anything except what is stable and consistent up to the day of resurrection? Do you not see that Allah has made shelters for you to seek refuge and signs to get correct guidance from the time of Adam (as) up to the previous Imam, Imam Hassan Askari (as).

Whenever a flag disappeared another flag appeared. And when one star disappeared another star rose. So when Allah turned his soul back toward Himself, you presumed that Allah disconnected the medium between Himself and His creation. Nay, never at all has this happened nor would this happen till the day of Judgement; and the order of Allah gets manifested, where as they, the infidels, dislike it.

 

«… اِنَّ الماضی (ع) مَضی سَعِيداً فَقِيداً عَلی مِنهَاجِ آبائِهِ عَلَيهِمُ السَّلامُ حَذوَ النَّعلِ بِالنَّعلِ وَفِينا وَصِيَّتُهُ وَعِلمُهُ وَمَن هُوَ خَلَفَهُ وَمَن يَسُدُّ مَسَدَّهُ وَلا يُنازِعُنا مَوضِعَهُ اِلاّ ظالِمٌ آثِمٌ وَلا يَدَّ عِيهِ دُونَنَا اِلاّ جاحُدٌ کافِرٌ وَلوَلا اَنَّ اَمرَ اللهِ لا يُغلَبُ وَسِرَّهُ لا يُظهَرُ وَلا يُعلَنُ لَظَهَرَ لَکُم مِن حَقِّنا ما تبهَرُمِنهُ عُقُولُکُم وَيُزيلُ شَکُوکَکُم لَکنَّهُ مَاشَاءَاللهُ کَانَ وَلِکُلِّ اَجَلٍ کِتابٌ فَاَتَّقُوا اللهَ وَسَّلَمُوا لَنَا

The past Imam Hassan Askari (as) walked the way of his fore fathers with great prosperity and success, and disappeared from the sights. He followed the conduct of his ancestors (as) with great exactness and similarity and led his life without any difference.
His testament and knowledge, and the one who is his successor follows the same program and path, exists. And nobody ever disputes his place and office with us, except the cruel sinner.
The one who proclaims the post of Imamate, other than us, is an infidel. And if it was not that Allah’s order is not to be subdued and His secrets are not to be revealed, I would have manifested to you my right in a way that your minds would have glowed and your doubts would have cast off; but only that which Allah desires takes place.
There is a fixed time for everything, therefore, be pious and be obedient to us.

 

وَاَمَّا اَلحَوادِثُ الواقِعَةُ فَارجِعُوا فيها اِلی رُواةِ حَدِيثِنا، فاِنَّهُم حُجَّتي عَلَيکُم،وَاَنَا حُجَّةُ اللهِ عَلَيهِم

When the incidents occur and take shape, turn to those who describe our traditions, ahadith, since they are my proof and authority over you & I am the authority of Allah upon them.

 

« اَللَّهُمَّ .. وَتَفَضَّل عَلی عُلَمائِنا بِالزُّهدِ وَالنَّصِيحَةِ، وَعَلیَ المُتَعَلِّمِينَ بِالجُهدِ وَالرَّغبَةِ، وَعَلَی المُستَمِعِينَ بِالاِتَبِاعِ وَالمَوعِظَةِ وَعَلَی مَرضَی المُسلِمينَ بِالشِّفاءِ وَالرّاحَةِ، وَعَلی مَوتاهُم بِالرَّأفَةِ وَالرَّحمَةِ، وَعَلی مَشايِخِنا بِالوَقارِ وَالسَّکِينَة ،وَعَلَی الشَّبابِ بِالإنابَةِ وَالتَّوبَةِ، وعَلَی النِّساءِ بِالحَياءِ وَالعِفَّةِ، وَعَلَی الأَغنِياءِ بِالتَّواضُعِ وَالسَّعَةِ، وَعَلی الفُقَراءِ بِالصَّبرِ وَالقَناعَةِ…

O Allah! Grace our learned scholars with piety and sincere advice, and those who are learning with determination and desire to learn; bless those who are listening with desire to follow the religious teachings; impart recovery and comfort to the Muslims suffering from illness and bless those dead among them with kindness and mercy. Award dignity and peace of mind to old people; confer repentance and turning away from sin to our young people; bestow modesty and chastity to our women; supply the rich with humility and abundance and the poor with patience and contentment….

 

«… قُلُوبُنا أَوعِيَةٌ لِمَشِيَّةِ اللهِ فِإذا شاءَ شِئنا…»

Our hearts are the utensils of the Divine will so when Allah wishes something, we too wish the same

 

فَاعلَم أَنَّهُ لَيسَ بَينَ اللهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ وَبَينَ اَحَدٍ قَرابَةٌ

So know it, there is no relation and kinship between Allah and any individual

 

«وَليَعلَمُوا اَنَّ الحَقَّ مَعَنا وفينا لا يَقُولُ ذلِکَ سِوانااِلاّ کَذّابٌ مُفتَرٍ وَلا يَدَّعِيهِ غَيرُنا اِلاّ ضالٌّ غَوِیٌّ…»

Know that the right of Imamate is with us and among us. Whosoever says or believes it to be with other than us, he is a culpable, liar. Anybody, other than us, who claims it has gone astray and is deviated.

اِلهی بِحَقَّ مَن ناجاکَ ،وَبِحَقَّ مَن دَعاکَ فیِ البَحرِ وَالبَرَّ، صَلِّ عَلی مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ،وَتَفَضَّل عَلی فُقَراءِ المُؤمِنينَ وَالمُؤمِناتِ بِالغِنی وَالسَّعَةِ، وَعَلی مَرضَی المُؤمِنِينَ وَالمُؤمِناتِ بِالشِّفاءِ وَالصَّحَّةِ وَالرّاحَةِ، وَعَلی أَحياءِ المُؤمِنِينَ وَالمُؤمِناتَ بِاللُّطفِ وَالکِرامَةِ،وَعَلی أَمواتِ المُؤمِنينَ وَالمُؤمِناتِ بِالمَغفِرَةِ وَالرَّحمَةِ، وَعَلی غُرَباءِ المُؤمِنِينَ وَالمُؤمِناتِ بِالرَّدِّ اِلی اَوطانِهِم سالِمِينَ غانِمِينَ، بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ اَجمَعِينَ

Oh Allah, for the right of the one who supplicates to you, and calls you in the oceans and the lands. Peace be upon Muhammad and his household. Grant vastness and abundance of sustenance to the poor Momineen men and women. Bestow health, relief and comfort upon the patients and diseased among the faithful men and women; mercy and magnanimity to the faithful men and women; beneficence, benevolence, and forgiveness to their dead. Grant their travellers a safe and successful return to their homelands. Grant all this for the sake of the right of Muhammad (saw) and all his household (as)
