The Secret of The Family of Muhamad a.s

The Allegories Q180 (The Secret of The Family of Muhamad a.s)
Question: Peace be upon whom has believed and has been guided
In the Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Intensely Merciful
May the peace, blessings, and mercy of Allah be upon you

I have been informed that you claim you have visions and [that you are] an ambassador for and see the remnant of Allah (Baqiyyet Allah) on his Earth. So I shall present a matter to you, if you answered it, then you have said the truth, and if you were not granted success in answering, then know that Allah is watching you, and that you have asked for a great matter, and that you have assigned yourself a great task.

I know that we have been informed from Muhammad son of Al Hassan Al Saffar that Al Sadiq (PBUH) said: (Verily, our matter is the truth, and the truth of the truth, and it is the apparent, and the inner of the apparent, and the inner of the inner, and it is the secret, and the secret of the secret, and the secret that is safeguarded with a secret, and a secret that is masked by a secret), and from him (PBUH): (Our matter is a safeguarded secret, and a secret that is not benefited except by a secret, and a secret upon a secret, and a secret masked with a secret).

So what do the two Hadiths mean? And what is their interpretation? And where is their place in the book of Allah?

Clarify your proof, and prove the truth of your call, and may the peace, blessings, and mercy of Allah be upon you

The Answer: In the Name of Allah, The Merciful, The Intensely Merciful
And Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.
May Allah send His peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.

The reality/truth of these two hadiths is great, and no one can bear it except its people: (and they are the Family of Muhammad PBUT), but I shall clarify to you something from it, lest Allah wills for you guidance and knowing the truth and the people of the truth from this clarification.

From Abi Abdillah (PBUH), he said: (Knowledge is twenty seven letters. All what the prophets have brought forth is only two letters, so people have not known except the two letters until today. So if our Qai’m (our riser) rises, he shall bring forth the twenty five letters, and he shall disseminate them among people, and he shall add the two letters to them, until he disseminates the twenty seven letters) [1]

In reality, the knowledge which man can possibly know is (twenty eight letters), out of which twenty seven will be disseminated as is mentioned in the narration, as for the rest [of the letters], that is what was [given only to] the Family of Muhammad (PBUT), and it is their safeguarded secret which is masked by the secret, meaning, [masked by] the twenty seven letters, and it is the knowledge that can not be handled except by a prophet messenger, or a close angel, or a tested believer whom Allah has tested his heart for faith.

As for the remaining letter (from the twenty eight letters), neither a prophet messenger, nor a close angel, nor a tested believer whom Allah has tested his heart for faith can bear it. From Abi Baseer, he said: Abu Abdullah (PBUH) said: (O Abu Muhammad, verily, with us is a secret from the secrets of Allah, and a knowledge from the knowledge of Allah, by Allah, neither a prophet messenger, nor a close angel, nor a tested believer whom Allah has tested his heart for faith can bear it, by Allah, Allah has not assigned this to any other than us, and He has never made [someone to] worship Him by this except us. And indeed with us is a secret from the secrets of Allah, and a knowledge from the knowledge of Allah, Allah has commanded us to inform people [about it], Thus we informed them what He has commanded us to inform, so we did not find for it a place, nor a people, nor carriers whom can bear it, untill Allah has created peoples to [bear] it, they were created from a clay, from [the same clay that] Muhammad and his Family and his Progeny (PBUT) [were created from], and from a light which Allah has created Muhammad and his Progeny from, and He made them by the Grace of his Mercy from which He made Muhammad and his Progeny. Thus we have informed from Allah what He has commanded us to inform, thus they accepted it, and they handled it [they were informed about this from us thus they accepted it and could bear it], and they were informed about our remembrance, so their hearts inclined towards knowing us and our hadiths. If it wasn’t for [the fact that] they were created from that, they would not have been as such, no by Allah, they would not have handled it.

Then he said: Verily, Allah has created peoples to the abyss and hell fire, so He commanded us to inform them like we informed [the others], so they were disgusted by [what we informed them], and their hearts were repelled [by it], and they returned it back to us and they could not bear it, and they disbelieved in it (belied it), and they said ‘a lying magician’. Thus, Allah has stamped over their hearts and made them forgetful of that, then He has made their tongue pronounce with some of the truth, for they utter it while their hearts deny it, in order that this may be protection for His preferred ones and the people of His obedience. And if it weren’t for that, Allah would not have been worshiped on His Earth. So He has commanded us to cease from them and to hide and conceal. So secrete from those whom Allah has commanded to cease from, and hide from whom Allah has commanded to hide and conceal from.
He said: then he (PBUH) raised his hands and wept, and he PBUH said: (O Allah, verily they are a little group, so may You make their life our life, and their death our death, and do not give power to their enemies over them lest u make us agonize over them [from a tragedy they could be afflicted by], for if You made us agonize over them [from a tragedy they could be afflicted by] you will not be worshiped ever on your Earth, and may Allah send His peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad) [2]

These twenty eight letters are the same number as that of the positions of the Moon, fourteen moons (and they are Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad) in the beginning of this nation: (Muhammad, and Ali, and Fatima, and Al-Hassan, and Al-Hussein, and Ali, and Muhammad, and Ja’afar, and Musa, and Ali, and Muhammad, and Ali, and Al-Hassan, and Muhammad (PBUT)), and fourteen Crescents, and they are the Family of Muhammad in the end of this nation, (and they are the twelve Mahdis from the sons of Imam Al-Mahdi (PBUH), and to the first of them belong two ranks/positions (Al-Risala (The Message) and Al-Wilayah (Authority), meaning, [to him belongs] two positions from the positions of the Moon (the Crescents), thus he becomes from the Moons and the Crescents, and for that he was counted to be from among the Imams in some of the narrations.

Abu Ja’afr (PBUH) said: (The twelve Imams from the family of Muhammad (PBUT) are all begotten from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH & his Family), and from the descendants of Ali, and the Messenger of Allah and Ali (PBUH) are the fathers) [3]

And from Abu Ja’afar (PBUH), that Jabir Ibn Abdullah Al Ansari said: (I entered upon Fatima (PBUH) and between their hands was a board in which were the names of the vicegerents from her descendants, so I counted twelve, their last is Al Qa’im (The Riser), three of them are Muhammad, and three of them are Ali) [4]

And Abi Ja’afar (PBUH) said (Verily, Allah sent Muhammad (PBUH & his Family) to Jinn and Man, and made after him twelve vicegerents, some of them preceded and some of them remained, and each vicegerent practiced a Sunnah. And the vicegerents who came after Muhammad (PBUH & his Family) are on the Sunnah of the vicegerents of Jesus and they were twelve, and the Prince of the Believers (PBUH) was on the Sunnah of Christ) [5]

And on the authority of Zirara, he said: I heard Abu Ja’afar (PBUH) saying: (We are twelve Imams, from them are Hassan and Hussein, afterwards [come] the Imams from the descendants of Al Hussein (PBUH) ) [6]

and Abu Ja’afar (PBUH) said: (The Messenger of Allah (PBUH & his Family) said: I, and twelve from my descendants, and you Ali, are the button of Earth, meaning its pegs and its mountains. By us Allah has cemented the Earth [in order for it ] not to melt with its people. For if the twelve from my descendants go away the Earth shall melt with its people and they shall not be saved) [7]

and Abu Ja’afar (PBUH) said: (The Messenger of Allah (PBUH & his Family) said: From my descendants are twelve chiefs, chosen, Mohadathon [those who speak and know the meanings of the traditions/knowledge of Muhammad (PBUH & his Family)] and Mofahamon [those who understand and make understood the traditions/knowledge of Muhammad (PBUH & his Family)], the last of them is Al-Qa’im (The Riser), he shall fill it with justice as it was filled with injustice) [8]

And there remains one position, which you shall find its interpretation in Tafsir Surat Al-Tawheed (The interpretation of Surat Al-Tawheed), when its time comes and is published, if Allah so wills.
Thus these are twenty eight positions, the same in number as the letters of knowledge, and the same in number as Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad (PBUT).

As for what remains from the month, it is a day, or a day and a part/some of a day, the moon disappears/becomes absent in it (for the month is twenty nine or thirty), and a day or a day and part/some of a day means a letter or a letter and some/part of the letter is in accordance to the rank/position of the Preferred One. For in regards to Muhammad (PBUH & his Family) it is one day only, and in regards to Ali and Fatima (PBUT) it is a day and some/part of a day, and in regards to Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein the part of the day increases, and as such in regards to the Imams and the Mahdis (PBUT).

And this day is the day of the Ghayba (The Occultation/The Absence), and it is the hidden safe guarded Name, which has not come out from Him, The Glorified, to His creation, and it is His, The Glorified, The Exalted, secret. No one knows it except Him, The Glorified, The Exalted.

As for (some/part of the day), it is: (The veil which is flapping), and which was opened to Muhammad (PBUH & his Family), thus nothing remained for him except the day (a letter) of the Ghayba (The Occultation/The Absence), or a letter from The Greater Name, and it is that which is hidden and safeguarded with Him, The Glorified, The Exalted, or The Greater Greater Greater Name.

And in the Hadith from Al-Sadiq (PBUH): (So Gabriel stopped him saying to him, [stop here at] Your Place O Muhammad – meaning this is your rank [O Muhammad], for Gabriel can not reach the rank of the Prophet thus he indicated to him to ascend to his rank (PBUH & his Family) – for you have stood at a place whereat no prophet or angel has ever stood before. Verily, your Lord is praying, so [Prophet Muhammad] said: O Gabriel, and how does He pray? [Gabriel] said: He says The Glorious, the Holy, I am the Lord of the angels and the Spirit. My mercy exceeds My wrath. So [Prophet Muhammad] said: O Lord, I beg Your forgiveness, I beg Your forgiveness. Then [Imam Sadiq PBUH] said: It was as Allah has said, [he was at] a distance as the length of two bows or nearer. It was said: And what is the length of two bows or nearer? He (PBUH) said: It is the distance between the arch and the head of the bow. Then he (PBUH) said: Between them there was a veil that shined and oscillated, and I do not know it, until he (PBUH) said: [it was] aquamarine, He looked into what Allah willed from the light of Greatness the size of the eye of a needle, so Allah the Most Holy, The Most Exalted, said …)) [9]

And this is the Clear Opening to Muhammad (PBUH & his Family). He, The Exalted, said:
{Verily We have opened for you a Clear Opening * That Allah may forgive for you what preceded of your sin and what will follow and complete His favor upon you and guide you to a straight path} [Surat Al-Fath 48:1,2}

For the veil flaps, and at certain times, there remains nothing except Allah, The One, The Conqueror, and that is the forgiveness of the remaining sin [which exists] with the remaining of Muhammad (PBUH & his Family) because it is the I and the character (Read the book Something from The Interpretation of Surat Al-Fatiha, and The Allegories, so the matter of the Clear Opening may be clear to you).

Thus, at the time of the opening, nothing remains except Allah, nothing remains except Light which has no darkness, for the darkness is the forgiven sin of Muhammad (PBUH & his Family), meaning [the forgiven sin] that has been raised from his page of existence (PBUH & his Family), and by such, nothing remains for Muhammad (PBUH & his Family) except the Truth and Reality [of Allah, The Glorified, The Exalted], or (The Greater Greater Greater Name), or the hidden safeguarded name with Him, The Glorified, The Exalted, or the day of the Ghayba (day of The Occultation/The Absence), or The Letter.
And remains for the Family of Muhammmad a day and a part of a day, because this veil was not exposed/revealed to them. The Prince of The Believers (PBUH) said: ( If the Veil was revealed/exposed to me, I would not have increased in certitude (faith)) [10]. And in regards to the Family of Muhammad (PBUT) the part of the day increases or decreases according to the rank and status.

And know that the Ghayba (The Occultation/The Absence) of Imam Al-Mahdi (PBUH) is according to his rank, meaning a day and a part of a day, meaning, a thousand years and some of the thousand years:
{He regulates the affair from the heaven to the earth; then shall it ascend to Him in a day the measure of which is a thousand years of what you count} [Surat Al-Sajdah 32:5]

And also know that The Mahdis are the signs of The Hour and its time, for this physical world is sealed by the last of them, and [then] starts the world of The Rajaa’ (the world of the Return), then the Qiyamah (The Resurrection)
{They ask you about the new moons/crescents. Say, “They are measurements of time for the people and for Hajj.” And it is not righteousness to enter houses from the back, but righteousness is [in] one who fears Allah. And enter houses from their doors. And fear Allah that you may succeed} [Surat Al-Baqarah 2:189]

And the Hadith of The Secret (from Jawami’ Al-Kilm), it is easy words but by these words many meanings were meant. (The Secret) is the Family of Muhammad (PBUT), because they are veiled from people, for no one knows them a complete knowing except Allah, The Glorified, The Exalted, for they are the first real/true secret in the ranks of ascension, and they are The Secret in the creation.

As for (The Secret of the Secret), it is the Divine Essence, or Allah, or The Most Beautiful Names of Allah (Asmaa’ Allah Al-Hosna).

As for (The Secret of The Secret of The Secret) – and it was not mentioned in the Hadith – because it is veiled from them (PBUT), and it is not their matter – for it is The Greater Greater Greater Name : (He), or The Truth and Reality.

Thus they are The Secret, and their matter (Their knowledge and knowing) is attached to The Secret of The Secret (Allah), and they are also a Secret masked by The Secret, and this mask, or the last secret, is not a real secret in the creation, rather, it is a secret in regards to the rest of the creation. And according to Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, and they are from the creation, it is not a secret, rather, it is their mask, and the veil between them and the creation. And this secret is: The Prophets and Messengers and the close Angels and the tested believers, for it was clarified that they (PBUT) are a secret in a secret, and a secret safeguarded by a secret, and a secret that is not benefited except by a secret (meaning [a secret] that is not known except by a secret, and they are The Prophets and Messengers and the close Angels and the tested believers).

And (a Secret masked by a Secret) meaning, a secret that is veiled by a secret, and they are The Prophets and Messengers and the close Angels and the tested believers.

As for their [the two hadiths] place in the book of Allah, He, The Exalted, said:
{Do they not then reflect on the Quran? or on the hearts there are locks?} [Surat Muhammad 47:24]

And praise be to Allah alone
