Labaik Ya Zahra(sa) - World wide Baqee Demolition Day; Message of Agha Hamid Moosavi

Such (is the Pilgrimage): Whoever honours the sacred Rites of God, for him. It is good in the sight of his Lord. In the light of Ahadees, what does Hurmaat mean the explanation of it is given as stated by renowned companion Abi Saeed Al-Khadri: The Holy Prophet (SAAW) said, no doubt, there are three Hurmaat, if any one made relaxation, protection and defence of the same then Allah Will protect and take care of his matter here and the Hereafter. If Allah’s Hurmaat were not protected then Allah Will extend no relaxation, these Hurmaat are: Hurmat of Islam, my hurmat and the hurmat of my Ahle Bait (A.S.)” (Al-Moajam Al-Kabeer Tibrani, edition 3, page 135).


  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
