Dua is the best of Worship

IMPORTANCE OF DUA Dua is the best of Worship. 8. رَّبَّنَا إِنَّنَا سَمِعْنَا مُنَادِيًا يُنَادِي لِلإِيمَانِ أَنْ آمِنُواْ بِرَبِّكُمْ فَآمَنَّا رَبَّنَا فَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَكَفِّرْ عَنَّا سَيِّئَاتِنَا وَتَوَفَّنَا مَعَ الأبْرَارِ {193}[The Quran 3:193] Our Lord! surely we have heard a preacher calling to the faith, saying: Believe in your Lord, so we did believe; Our Lord! forgive us therefore our faults, and cover our evil deeds and make us die with the righteous. 1.Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) Says : Dua is the weapon of believer. It is pillar fo religion. It is noor of earth and sky. 2.Imam Sadiq (a.s.) Says : One who does not ask Allah for his grace he will remain dependent (upon people).(25022008) 3.Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) said : Dua nulifies (prevents) those calamities which are destines and those calamities which are not destined. The narrator asked which are not destined. Those calamities which are not decended (naazil )Yet. 4.Tradition Says : One who knows the door again and again the door will be opened for him ( we should not be maayoos with Allah).(06032008) 5.Ask again and again from Allah. We should not ask only for big things we should ask also small things. Beacause ther are some small things which turn into big things.(11082008) 6.وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ {}[The Quran2:186] And when My servants ask you concerning Me, then surely I am very near; I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he calls on Me, so they should answer My call and believe in Me that they may walk in the right way. (10092008) 7. وِمِنْهُم مَّن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ {201}[ The Quran 22:201] And there are some among them who say: Our Lord! grant us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and save us from the chastisement of the fire. (18112008)

Dreams(Ru'ya) and Death(Maut)‏

MANAZILE AKHERAH BY SHAIKH ABBAS BIN MOHAMMAD REZA AI-QUMMI TRANSLATED BY AejazAli Turabhusain Bhujwala (Husaini) Dreams (Ru'ya) Imam Moosa-al-Kazim (A.S.) states that in the former part of creation, man did not dream. Allah sent upon the people His Apostle to guide them towards virtue and warn against evil. The Prophet advised them that if they followed the Right Path as preached by Him, they would be successful and be rewarded in Paradise. But if they erred and did not avoid sin, they would face tribulation in hell. They asked the Prophet as to how could they rely on something which they had never seen. They said that they observed that after death a man's body become motionless and turns into dust, how could then he be rewarded or chastised for his actions. It is after this incident that they started dreaming in which they witnessed Allah's rewards in Paradise and His wath in hell. They went to the Prophet and narrated this to him. The Prophet replied that as in the dreams they met people, conversed with them, and visited far off places, after death even if their bodies would be reduced to dust, they would still taste chastisement or reward (as the case may be) in Paradise or hell. Death(Maut) Scholars differ regarding the explanation of death. Some call it a continuous phenomenon (Amre Wujoodi, not the end of life), while others opine that it is terminal one (Amre Adami, the end of life). But the generally excepted fact is that it is purely a bodily affair. Regarding death it is said that, "It is a continuous process and the vice versa to life". The Holy Qur'an says. Blessed is He in whose hand is the kingdom (of the heavens and the earth), and He has power over all things, Who created death and life that He may try you, (to prove) which of you is best in deeds". (Surah-al Mulk: 1-2) The above verse (Ayah) refers to the purpose of the creation of life and death. Non existence is not the essence of creation. If death had been an ending process, the word "Khaliq" (Creation) would not have been used. Death in reality is the divorce of the spirit (rooh) from the body, and can be illustrated by many examples. It can be compared to a sailor estranged from his wrecked ship. The spirit is a light which illuminates the dark body and its components derive benefit from it. Whereas death is the estranger of this light from the body, leaving it again in darkness. It is not true that the spirit enters the body, because it is free of enter and exit. It shares a limited relation with the body, after which it leaves the body for immortality. In short, the detachment of the spirit (Rooh) from the body is called death (Maut). It is incumbent upon us to believe that death is a phenomenon solely governed by the will and command of Almighty Allah only, and He maintains the relation of the spirit to the body from mother's womb till the end. He is the Creator (Khaliq) of all things, and the Giver of life and death. The Holy Qu'ran says: "Allah takes the spirits (Rooh) at the time of their death" (Surah-az-Zumar : 42). Some ignorant people are of the opinion that the Angel of death (Izraeel) is an evil demon and an enemy who estranges us from our children and orphans them. But the reality is that he acts in accordance to the command of Allah only and has no personal options.

Fornication of Organs‏

The women are also ordered not to look at namehram men, and the men are similarly warned. It is ordered in Surah Nur, “Say to the believing men that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts; that is purer for them; surely Allah is aware of what they do.” (Surah Nur 24:30) Fornication of Organs Both Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (a.s.) and Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.) have informed, “There is no man who is not to some extent guilty of fornication . The fornication of the eyes is the evil glance, the kiss is the fornication of lips and touching a namehram woman is the fornication of hands.” (Wasaelush Shia ) It is also recorded that, “Those who look at a namehram woman with an evil intention and fill their eyes with this sight (that is they look for a long time) Allah will, on the day of Qiyamat fill (pierce) their eyes with burning rods. They will continue in this way till Allah completes the hearing of the cases of all the people. Only after that will He order them to be thrown into Hell.” (Wasaelush Shia )

Ring tones on QURAN AAYATH are HARAMM because the AAYATH are not complete‏

Saudi council of Muftis have given an unanimous Fatwa that ring tones on QURAN AAYATH are HARAMMbecause the AAYATH are not complete when we pick the phone and meanings of AAYAT changes when they are not complete. QURAN is for Hidayat and not for ring tones. Please inform others BE ADVISED Don't say 'Mosque' Say always ' Masjid' Because Islamic organization has found that's mosque = mosquitoes Don't write ' Mecca ' Write always correctly ' Makkah' Because Mecca = house of wines Don't write ' Moh'd' Write always completely as ' Muhammad' Because Moh'd = the dog with big mouth. Forward it to as many Muslims as you can for Sawab. Nothing bad will happen if you don't forward this but these points are important and it is our duty to educate ourbrothers and sisters.

Questioning in the Grave by Munkir and Nakeer

One of the principal factors of Shi'aism, belief in which is obligatory (wajib), is the questioning in the grave by Munkir and Nakeer. Allamah Majlisi relates in 'Biharul Anwar' and `Haqqul Yaqeen' that it is a proven fact from reliable traditions that the questioning and the squeezing in the grave is for the physical body, as also for the spirit. In the grave one is questioned regarding one's beliefs (Aqaid) and deeds (A'maal). The questions are put to every believer as well as a non-believer. Only infants, the mentally retarded, and the people of lesser intellect are exempted from it. The period of `Barzakh' offers them neither reward nor retribution. One is questioned about the Prayers (Namaz), Fasting (Siyam), the Pilgrimage (Haj), Zakat, Khums, love of Ahlulbait (A.S.), and also about how he spent his entire life and wealth. Imam Ali Zainul Abedeen (A.S.) says that after the questioning about the beliefs of Islam, a person is questioned about how he spent his life, and also about the way he earned his wealth and spent it. There are many whose tongues would cease to answer the questions put forth to them, and would not be able to answer, or would reply wrongly. It also happens that in reply to the question "Who is your Lord?", the person will reply to the Angels that they (i.e the Angels) are his lord. The person who is well acquainted in his life time with the beliefs and principals (of Islam) will be able to answer without trouble. And if he does so, his grave will be broadened to the length his sight reaches. The period of `Barzakh' passes away easily with Allah's blessings, and the Angels proclaim to him, : "Sleep thou like a newly wedded bride". (Usoole Kafi) If the dead man is a non believer or a hypocrite, and cannot answer the questions put forth to him, one of the doors of hell is opened in his grave, and the entire grave is filled with the raging-fire. As Allah says in the Qu'ran: "And if he be of those who have belied, gone astray, He shall have an entertainment of a boiling water, And the boiling in the hell -fire" (surah -al Waqe'ah: 92-94). Imam Ja'far-as-Sadiq (A.S.) says that, "A person who denies the following, is not one of our Shi'ahs: (1) Ascension (Me'raj of the Holy Prophet), (2) Questioning in the grave, and (3) Our Intercession (Shafa'at). It is related that two Angels having a fearful countenance enter the grave for the questioning, their voices are like thunder, and their eyes like lightening. They put forth the following questions: (1) Who is your Lord? (2) Who is your Prophet? (3) What is your Religion? (4) Who is your Imam? The dead man feels uneasy in answering these questions because of the fearful environment and needs help at that moment, hence Talqeen is recited at the following two places so that he is reminded of his beliefs (Aqaid). (1) When the body is laid in the grave. It is better to place one's right hand on the right shoulder of the dead body, and the left hand on the left shoulder, and shake slightly when the name of the dead man is recited in the `Talqeen'. (2) When the grave Is closed. It is recommended (sunnat) that a near relative of the dead man should sit near the head of the grave after people leave, and should recite the `Talqeen' in a loud voice. It is better to place one's palms on the grave and take one's face near the grave while reciting. There is no problem of another person other than the relatives is deputed for it. It is related that when the `Talqeen' is recited, and the Angels (Munkir & Nakeer) hear it, Munkir tell Nakeer, "Come let us leave, for the Talqeen is a proof of his beliefs, and there remains no ground for further questioning". Ref: Manazale Akherah

THE PATH TO JANNAH ( PARADISE )‏

Anas Ibn Malik reports that a Bedouin came to the Messenger of Allah (saws) and greeted him in the mosque. The Messenger of Allah (saws) asked him where did he come from. The Bedouin said: "I came from far seeking answers to some questions". Our master told him to ask his questions: I wish to be an intelligent man, what should I do? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Fear Allah" I wish to be a loyal servant to Allah and do what He wants me to do? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Read the Qur'an" I wish to be enlightened and have peace of heart? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Remember Death" I wish to be protected against enemies? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Trust in Allah" I wish to follow the Straight Path? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Do good to others for Allah's sake" What should I do so that Allah does not abase me? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Do not respond to the desires of your flesh" I wish to have a long life? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Praise and thank Allah" I wish for prosperity? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Be in a state of ablution at all times" How can I save myself from the hellfire? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Protect your eyes and your tongue and your hands and what is below your waistline against evil" How can I cleanse myself from my sins? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Shed tears for what you have done and repent by undoing what you have done wrong" I wish to be a respectable person? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Then, don't ask for anything from anybody" I wish to be honorable? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Then don't divulge the wrong doings of anybody" What should I do to protect myself from the tortures of the grave? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Recite the Surah Mulk" What should one do to be rich? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Read the Surah Muzammil" How should I calm my fear of the day of last judgment? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Remember Allah before you eat anything and before you sleep" What should I do to feel the presence of Allah when I make my prayers? Holy Prophet (saws) Replied, "Give the utmost care in taking your ablutions and in being clean and pure" Ref: www.ABNA.IR AL AJAL AL AJAL YAA MAULA YAA SAHIBAZ ZAMAAN

A'mal which saves one from the Squeeze in the Grave‏

There are many acts (A'amal) to save one from the squeeze in the grave, but for brevity's sake, I state here only seventeen of them. (1) Amirul Mo'meneen Ali (A.S.) says, that a person who recites Surah-an-Nisa on every Friday will remain safe from the squeeze in the grave. (2) It is narrated that if a person recites Surah-az- Zukhruf, Allah will save him from the reptiles of the earth, and the squeeze in the grave. (3) A person who recites Surah-al-Qalam in Obligatory Prayers (Wajib Namaz) or Supererogatory Prayers (Nafela), will remain safe from this punishment. (4) Imam Ja'far-as-Sadiq (A.S.) says, that if a person dies between the sunset of thursday and the sunset of friday, Allah will exempt him from this punishment. (5) Imam Ali-ar-Reza (A.S.) says, that the Midnight Prayers (Namaze Shab) is recommended (sunnat) for you. So if a person gets up in the last part of the night and recites Namaze Shab, Allah will save him from the squeeze in the grave and grant him immunity from the fire of hell, and will increase his age and sustenance. (6) The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S.) says, that if a person recites Surah-at-Takasur before going to bed, Allah will grant him freedom from this punishment. (7) If a person recites this supplication (dua') ten times daily will be saved from this punishment. (The du'a has already been quoted in Chapter - I under "Those A'mal which prove beneficial during death and eases it's tribulations"). (8) A person who is buried in Najafe Ashraf. Because the earth of that place has got the speciality, that a person buried there will be saved from the punishment in the grave, and will be exempted from the questioning by Munkir and Nakeer. (9) To put Jareedatayn (two wet sticks or branches) along with the dead body in the grave. It is narrated that so long as the sticks remain wet, the dead person is saved from chastisement. It is related that once the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S.) was passing by a grave on which Allah's wrath was descending. He called for a leafless branch. He cut it from between, wetted it with water, and kept one on the head of the grave and the other on the feet. It is also related that to sprinkle water on the grave is also beneficial, for so long as the mud of the grave remains wet, the dead person remains safe from the punishment in the grave. (10) A person who recites ten units (Rak'at) of Namaz on the 1st of Rajab such that in every Rak'at after Surah al-Hamd recites three times Surah-at-Tawheed, will be saved from the squeeze in the grave. To recite twenty Raka'at Namaz on the night of 1st Rajab, such that in every Rak'at after Surah-al-Hamd recite once Surah-at-Tawheed is beneficial to save oneself from the punishment in the grave. (11) To fast for four days in the month of Rajab or twelve days in the month of Sha'ban is also beneficial. (12) To recite Surah-al-Mulk on the grave is an act which saves the dead man from the punishment in the grave. Allamah Qutubuddin Rawandi relates from Ibne Abbas, who says that once a person pitched a tent on a ground not knowing that there was a grave beneath. Thereafter he started reciting Surah-al-Mulk. Suddenly he heard a voice saying that the Surah gives salvation. He related this incident to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S.), who replied that, "Verily this Surah frees a person from the punishment in the grave". Shaikh Kulanini also narrates from Imam Mohammad-al-Baqir (A.S.) who said that the recitation of Surah-al-Mulk saves one from the punishment in the grave. (13) It is related from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) in "Da'waat" of Allamah Qutubuddin Rawandi that, when a person is being buried and someone recites this supplication (du'a) thrice, the corpse will remain safe from the punishment in the grave till the day of Qayamat: اللهم اني اسالك بحق محمد وال محمد ان لا تعذب هذا الميت (14) Shaikh Toosi in his `Misbahul Mutahajjid' relates the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S.) as saying that, if a person recites the following two Rak'at Namaz on friday night, Allah will free him from the punishment in the grave, and save him from fear on the day of Qayamat. In each Rak'at after Surah- al-Hamd recite fifteen times Surah-az-Zilzal. (15) To recite thirty Rak'at Namaz in the middle part of the month of Rajab, such that in each Rak'at after Surah-al- Hamd recite ten times Surah-al-Tawheed is beneficial to ward off punishment in the grave. In the same manner to recite the above Namaz on the night of 16th and 17th Rajab and the 1st of Sha'ban is also beneficial. On the night of the 1st of Sha'ban to recite 100 Rak'at Namaz, such that in each Rak'at after Surah-al-Hamd recite once Surah-at Tawheed, after ending the Namaz recite fifty times Surah at-Tawheed. On the night of 24th Sha'ban recite one hundred Rak'at Namaz, such that in each Rak'at after Surah-al-Hamd recite ten times Surah-an-Nasr. Also to recite fifty Rak'at Namaz such that in each Rak'at after Surah-al-Hamd recite fifty times Surah-at-Tawheed, fifty times Surah-al-Falaq, and 50 times Surah-an-Naas saves one from the punishment in the grave. To recite the same Namaz on the night of `Ashoora' (10th of Moharram) is also beneficial. (16) To keep `Khake Shifa' (the mud of the grave of Imam Husain ( A.S.) in the shroud (kafan), or to rub it on the parts of prostration (Sajdah). (17) It is narrated from Imam Ja'far-as-Sadiq (A.S.) in "Anware No'maniyyah" that if forty persons gather near the body and recite: اللهم انا لا نعلم منه الا خيرا وانت اعلم به منا فاغفر له Allah will safeguard the dead man from the punishment in the grave. It is related from Imam Ja'far-as-Sadiq (A.S.) that there was a virtuous man in Bani Israil, regarding whom it was revealed to Prophet Dawood (A.S.) that he was a hypocrite (riyakar) When he died, Hazrat Dawood refrained from attending his funeral But forty other people attended his funeral and said: اللهم انا لا نعلم منه الا خيرا وانت اعلم به منا فاغفر له Then another forty came and repeated the same, for they were not aware of the hidden reality. Allah then revealed to Dawood (A.S.) and asked him as to why did he not attend his funeral? Hazrat Dawood answered, "O Lord! You said that the man was a hypocrite, and so I avoided his funeral". Allah said, "Verily it was true, but because forty persons bore witness to his goodness I forgave his sins". It is Allah's mercy and beneficence who thus forgave His servant with any trial or tribulation. It is for this reason that the believers (mo'meneen) in the olden days kept their shrouds (kafan) with them, and would request other believers to write down their testimonies on it The sight of the shroud made them remember death and increase the fear of the hereafter. We too should follow this example and request other Mu'meneen to write down their testimonies on our shrouds, and preserve it with us, so that we are always reminded of the hereafter Ref: Manazale Akherah

Ali Al-Akbar (p), Look-alike of the Prophet (p)

By: Mikdad El-Awsat The Hashemite Prince Hazrat Ali Al-Akbar (p), son of Imam Al-Hussain (p) and Hazrat Umm-e-Layla (p), born on 11 Shaban, possessed so much remarkable resemblance to the holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad (p) that the Chief of Martyrs and Leader of the Youths of Paradise Al-Imam Al-Hussain (p) was often heard to say “Whenever I desire to see the holy prophet (p) I look at him.” In looks, in voice, in mannerism, in gait and in every way, Ali Al-Akbar (p) resembled the Seal of Prophets Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (p). The resemblance was so marked that people from far and wide were coming to see him, to be reminded of the Prophet (p) whom they were missing so much. Those who had not had the good fortune to see the Prophet (p) were told by their elders that Ali Al-Akbar (p) was the very image of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (p). His handsome looks were matched by his handsome deeds. His nobility of character, his sense of duty, his generosity, his chivalry, his geniality, his love of justice and fairplay had endeared him to every soul. 18-year-old Ali Al-Akbar (p) had been taught fencing and archery by Inheritor of Haidari Valor Hazrat Al-Abbas (p). In the battle of Karbala in 61 AH, Ali Al-Akbar (p) went over to his father Al-Imam Al-Hussain (p) to ask his permission to go out into that gory arena from which no person from his camp had returned. Hussain (p) looked at his face; it would be more correct to say that for a couple of minutes his stare was fixed on that face which he loved so much, which reminded him every time of his grandfather (p) whom he resembled every inch. He tried to say something but his voice failed him. With considerable effort he whispered with sad eyes: Akbar, I wish you had become a father, then you would have known what I am experiencing at this moment. My son, how can a father ask his son to go, when he knows that the parting would be for ever! But Akbar, the call of duty makes me helpless in this matter. Go to your mother (p), and to your aunt Zainab (p) who has brought you up from childhood and loved you and cared for you more than for her own sons, and seek their permission. Hazrat Zainab Bint-e-Ali (p) said: Oh God, can it be true that Akbar has come to bid me and his mother the last farewell! Akbar! Do not say that you are ready for the last journey. So long as my sons Aun and Muhammad are there, it is impossible for me to let you go. Hazrat Al- Al-Akbar said: My aunt, for all my father's kinsmen the inevitable hour has come. I implore you, by the love you bear for your brother, to let me go so that it may not be said that he spared me till all his brothers and nephews were killed. Abbas, my uncle, is Commander of our army. The others are all younger than me. When death is a certainty, let me die first so that I can quench my thirst at the heavenly spring of Kausar at the hands of my grandfather. After getting permission from Hazrat Zainab (p) and Hazrat Umm-e-Layla (p), Hazrat Ali Al-Akbar (p) said to her aunt Zainab (p): My aunt, I am leaving my mother to your care. I know, from your childhood, your mother Fatima (p) prepared you for the soul-stirring events of today and what is to come hereafter. My mother will not be able to bear the blows and calamities that are to befall her, unless you lend her your courage. I implore you by the infinite love you bear for me to show the fortitude that you are capable of, so that your patience may sustain my mother when she sees my dead body brought into the camp's morgue. I entrust her to your care because there will be none to solace her and look after her in the years of dismay and despondency that lie ahead of her. Sending Ali Al-Akbar to the battlefield, Imam Hussain (p) raised his hands and said: “O lord be a witness against this people that a youth is leaving who was resembling the Holy Prophet (p) most ... whenever I was desirous of seeing the holy prophet (p) I looked at him ...” In the battlefield, he was addressing the forces of Amr Ibne Saad with an eloquence which he had inherited from his Grandfather Ali Al-Murtaza (p) and the Prophet Muhammad Al-Mustafa (p). He was telling them that Hussain, his father, had done them no harm. He was explaining to them that by shedding the blood of Hussain (p) and his kinsmen, they would be incurring the wrath of God and displeasure of the Prophet (p) who had loved Hussain (p) more than any other person. He was exhorting them not to smear their hands with the blood of a person so holy, so God-fearing and so righteous. His words cast a spell on the army of the opponents. The older ones from amongst them were blinking their eyes in amazement and wondering whether the Prophet (p) had descended from the Heavens to warn them against the shedding of Hussain (p)'s blood. What a resemblance there was with the Prophet (p), in face, features and even mannerism! Even the voice was of Muhammad (p)! But on second thoughts, they realized that this was Ali Al-Akbar, the 18 year old son of Hussain (p), about whose close resemblance with the Prophet (p) people were talking so much.

Laborers rejoice completion of Askariyain shrine dome, minarets‏

SAMARRA, Iraq: Al-Marjaiyah Ad-Diniyah representatives, clerics and high government officials attended a grand reopening ceremony of the rebuilt holy shrine of Al-Imamyan Al-Askariyain in Samarra on April 16, 2009. HOLY SAMARRA, Iraq: Sacred dome and minarets of the holy shrine of Al-Imamayn al-Askariyain (AS) in Samarra have been completed by the grace of Allah Almighty and help of fourteen Masumin (peace be on them). The holy dome and minarets were razed to ground in terror attacks at the hands of terrorists in 2006 and 2007. United Nations cooperated in rebuilding the holy shrine of the 10th and 11th infallible descendants of holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him and his holy progeny). The completion took time of less than a year. The celebration with “tears of happiness” came soon after putting the last brick in the holy dome.

The Messenger’s Command to Pledge Allegiance to the Mahdi‏

Thawbān says, Said the Messenger of Allah (a.s), “Three people will be killed before your treasury; all of them will be sons of a caliph and the treasury will not become of anyone of them. Then black standards will rise from the direction of the east. They will kill you in a massacre that no nation has killed like it.” Then he said something I do not remember. The Messenger of Allah (a.s) said, “When you see him pledge allegiance to him, even if you have to crawl over ice, because he is the Caliph of Allah, the Mahdi.” Ibn Māja has narrated this.

Believer happy

Imam Mohd. Baqir (a.s.) Says : Smiling on seeing your believing brother is a good action and to remove his difficulty is a good action and Allah does not like any good deed (worship) more than making a believer happy. Imam Sadiq (a.s.) Says : Allah revealed to Hazrat Dawood (a.s.) if a servant does not good deed than I will make jannat Mubah for him. Then Hazrat Dawood (a.s.) asked what is that good deed ? Allah replied : To make a believer happy. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) Says : He who hurts a muslim believer surely he has hurt me. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) Says : One who makes a believer happy then surely he has made me happy, and one who made me happy then surely he has made Allah happy. 1.Imam Baqir [a] said: "... He who obeys Allah is a lover of us, and the one who disobeys Him then he is an enemy for us (AhIul-Bayt)..." Al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 75(25122006) 2.The Holy Prophet [s] said: "Shall I not introduce 'a believer' to you? A believer is the one whom other believers trust with their souls and wealth. Shall I not introduce 'a Muslim' to you? A Muslim is the one from whose hand and tongue other Muslims are safe.... It is unlawful (Haram) for a believer to do wrong against another believer, or leave him/her in a lurch, or backbite against him/her, or suddenly reject him/her." AI-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 235(g29122006)(11062007) 3.Imam Hassan, the second Imam [a], said: "Treat others similar to the way you would like for them to treat you."

Al-Kafi, Vol.2, p. 170(30042007) 5.The Holy Prophet [s] said: "He who hurts a Muslim believer, surely he has hurt me." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 67, p. 72 (11062007) HELPING THE BELIVER 6. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) Says : One who fulfills need of a believer will get reward equal to one who serves Allah the whole of his life. 7. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.)
