Your appearance on Mount Faran

Question 69: What is the meaning of what was narrated in the Supplication of Samat: “And through Your Glory, which appeared on Mount Sinai, and through which You addressed Your slave and Your Messenger; Moses, son of ‘Imran, and through Your rise in Sa’ir and through Your appearance on Mount Faran near Rabawat, which are clean and holy places, when troops of heavenly angels were in rows, and with the submissiveness of the angels praising You…?”

Imam Ahmed Alhasan (pbuh) answered:

(Sa’ir) is the land of worship and monotheism, and it is the holy land, meaning Beit Al-Maqdis (Jerusalem) and what surrounds it. And (Faran) is the haven of seeking forgiveness and repentance, and it is Makkah and what surrounds it. And the Prophet who was dispatched in Sa’ir was Jesus (pbuh), and the one who was dispatched in Faran was Muhammad (pbuh & his family).

As for the Glory which appeared on Mount Sinai, so Allah (swt) spoke through it to Moses (pbuh), and it was Ali (pbuh), and he is the door of the overflow amongst creation. So Ali (pbuh) is the one who spoke to Moses (pbuh), and Ali (pbuh) was the staff of Moses (pbuh), for the truth of the staff of Moses (pbuh) was not that staff, but rather, the real staff of Moses (pbuh), which he struck the sea with, are the words of Allah: {No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He shall guide me.}
And it is Yaqeen (certitude) [that is] firmly established in the heart of Moses (pbuh), and the words of Allah and Yaqeen (certitude) [is]: Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh).

And about “through Your rise in Sa’ir”: Meaning the rise of Allah (swt) in Sa’ir, and Allah (swt) rose in Sa’ir through Jesus son of Mary, and the rise, meaning coming into view and the partial incomplete appearance. So Jesus (pbuh) represented Allah (swt) in the creation, however, in an incomplete way.

And that is why his dispatch was the rise of Allah (swt), and as such Jesus (pbuh) was paving the way for the dispatch of Muhammad (pbuh & his family); for verily the rise precedes the appearance.
“And through Your appearance on Mount Faran”: Meaning the appearance of Allah (swt), and this appearance was through sending Muhammad (pbuh & his family), so the greatest Prophet Muhammad (pbuh & his family) is Allah in the creation. And this is why the Imam (pbuh) in the supplication expressed the dispatch of Muhammad (pbuh & his family) by the appearance of Allah (swt).

So the Imam (pbuh) wants to say in the supplication that Muhammad (pbuh & his family) is Allah in the creation, and that his dispatch is the appearance of Allah. So whoever knows Muhammad (pbuh & his family) has known Allah, and whomever sees Muhammad (pbuh & his family) has seen Allah, and whomever looks towards Muhammad (pbuh & his family) has looked towards Allah.

And Sayyed Ahmed Al-Hasan (pbuh) continues: And this reality today began to appear and be clarified by the preference of Imam Al Mahdi (pbuh), the Almighty said: {By the sun and its brightness. And [by] the moon when it follows it. And [by] the day when it displays it.}

And ‘the sun’ [is] the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (pbuh & his family). And ‘the moon’ [is] Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh), for he is the one who followed the Messenger of Allah.
And ‘the day’ is the Qa’im (Riser) (pbuh); for verily [it is] he who shows and manifests the true preference of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family), and his great rank.
And although in the existing reality in this physical world the sun is what brightens the day and shows/manifests it, however, Allah (swt) said in this verse, “And the day when it displays it” (meaning the sun).
So it is true that Imam Al Mahdi (pbuh) appeared and manifested from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family), however, in the End Times he is the one who shall show and manifest the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) to the people.
