Sender: Jafar toori

Imam Zayn ul-'Abidin, peace be on him, martyred on Moharram 25, entrusted his commandments to his son Imam Mohammed al-Baqir, peace be on him. The following are some of his commandments to him:

1. He commanded him to take care of his she-camel. He said to him: "I performed the hajj on this she-camel of mine twenty times, yet I did not whip it. When it dies, bury it. Let not the beasts eat its meat, for Allah's Messengers, may Allah bless him and his family, said: 'If a camel stops seven times at 'Arafa, Allah will place it among the favors of the Garden, and bless its offspring. (Al-Barqi, Maha`sin, vol. 2, p. 635)

2. The Imam gave to his son this commandment, which displays the brilliant sides of the qualities of the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt) , peace be on them. He said to him: "O my little son, I will command you with what my father commanded me when death was close to him. He said to me: 'O my little son, beware of wronging him who finds no helper against you except Allah. (Al-Ama`li, p. 161. Al-Khisa`l, p. 185)

3. He commanded him to wash and shroud him and to undertake all his other affairs until he buried him in his final resting place. 

  "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 ..
