Ahadith from Imam Ali bin Mousa Ar-Reza (AS)

By: Nayyar Hussain

Imam Reza (AS) described the magnanimity and glory of Quran's authority it's miracles saying, “That is the firm cable of Allah, firmest handhold, the ideal model path, it guides and leads toward paradise, and is the saviour from the fire (of Hell). It does not corrode and wear out by the passage and flow of time. More over, it's continuous repetition and recitation through the tongue does not devalue and depreciate it, since, it is not made to exist for a certain age and period apart from other ages and periods. Instead, it has been made a proof and logic for all human beings. Falsehood does neither find passage in front of it nor from it's back side. It has been descended (revealed) by Allah, the All-Wise, All-Praise Worthy.” (BIHAR UL ANWAR Vol 92, P 14)

Rayyan says I said to Imam Reza (A.S.) “What do you say about Quran?” he replied “It is the speech of Allah; do not exceed and move ahead of it; do not seek guidance from other than it, otherwise, you would go astray.” (BIHAR UL ANWAR Vol 92, P 117)

“Indeed Imamate is the rein of religion, the system of Muslims the righteousness welfare of the world, the honour and glory of faithfuls. Verily, Imamate is the growing ongoing root of Islam, it's elevated sublime branch. Services, alms, fasting, Hajj, Jehad (the holy war) attain completion and perfection. The Allah's bounds, sanctions, ordinances get executed, the frontiers boundaries (of Islamic lands) get safe secure, through Imam.” (USOOL KAFI, Vol 1, P 200)

“A faithful will not become (real) faithful till such time he acquires three qualities: A way of Allah's treatment, the Prophet's rule, a rule of his Wali. However, the Allah's treatment is the concealing of his secret. Allah said "The Knower of the unseen! So He does not reveal His secret to any except to him whom He chooses as an apostle. More over, the Sunnah is rule of the Prophet (PBUHP) is conciliation with the people. So Allah commanded the Prophet (PBUHP) to conciliate with the masses saying, ‘Take to forgiveness and enjoin good.’ Nevertheless, the rule of his Wali is ‘exercising patience and endurance in (the times of) adversities, poverty and apprehensions.’” (USOOL KAFI, Vol 2, P 241)

“Becoming part of the officials of sultan (king, ruler), providing help and assistance to them, putting in endeavor to fulfill their needs and requirements is equivalent to infidelity. And looking intentionally and purposely at them is one of the great sins, which deems one fit to deserve the hell fire.” (BIHAR UL ANWAR Vol 75, P 374)


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"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."
