The Sermon of Hajj

Peace and prayers upon Muhammad and his kinship of Imams and Mahdis. The Almighty said,
56. ﴾Thus We empowered Joseph in the earth, he takes from it whatever he pleases. We reach with Our mercy whom We will and We lose not the reward of the good, and the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and those who are pious.﴿ —Surat Yusuf (Joseph) 12.

Who was crucified instead of Jesus? Who is the crucified look-alike?

Question 9: When reading about the matter of crucifixion and sacrifice in the statements of the religious clerics, one finds obvious contradictions, so is it possible to provide a conclusive statement from the texts in which they believe?
And what is the interpretation of this narration: ﴾it was said to Imam Abu Abdullah Jafar al-Sadiq℗, “For what reason was he named the Riser?” He℗ answered, “Verily, he rises after his death, he rises with a great matter, he rises with the matter of Almighty God.”﴿?

Moses said, I did it then, while I was of those astray

Question 41: In the answer to a previous question, you said that Moses did not apologize for his killing of the Coptic because he was a work of Satan. Rather, you said that he intended to kill the Coptic and it was a righteous act; so if it was right for Moses to kill the Coptic, then what is the meaning of his saying in Surat ash-Shuaraa, (([Moses] said, “I did it then, while I was of those astray.))?

What is the difference between the remembrance of Ruku and prostration?

Question 36: What is the difference between the remembrance of Ruku “Subhana rabbya al-atheem wa bihamdih” [Glory and praise be to my Lord the Almighty] and the statement of prostration “Subhana rabbya al-ala wa bihamdih” [Glory and praise be to my Lord the Most High]”?

Question 34: What is the meaning of Takbeerat [1] Al-Ihram during the prayer, and what is the significance of the Takbeerat of Ali bin Abi Talib?

Answer: The Takbeerat* for ihram in prayer are actually seven and not one, although ihram with one is permissible, if what is intended by that is the seven Takbeerat which are referring to the seven skies

Intercession in the Quran

Question 26: What is the meaning of the verse ⸨And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will justice be taken from it, nor will they be supported.⸩ [Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:48]?

And also the Almighty’s saying ⸨ And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, and no justice will be accepted from it, nor will any intercession benefit it, nor will they be supported⸩ [Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:123]? Do these verses negate intercession?

Verily We have given you seven of the praises and the great Quran

Question 24: What is meant by the seven praises?

Answer: Allah swt said,
{Verily We have given you seven of the praises and the great Quran.} [The Quran 15:87]
The praises in this verse are the verses of Surat Al-Fatiha.
And the word praises is obtained from the word praise, which means to acclaim and give thanks, as the verses of Surat Al-Fatiha are seven verses, and all of them are verses that praise Allah swt. For that reason, they are called the seven praises

Woe unto those who pray

Question 20: What is the meaning of Allah’s swt saying,
{Woe unto those who pray}, in Surat Al-Maun?

Answer: In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful,

{Have you seen him who denies the religion?}: The question here is directed to

We are closer to him than his jugular vein

Question 18: Allah swt said,
{O you who believe, respond to Allah and the messenger when he calls you to that which vivifies you, and know that Allah intervenes between the man and his heart, and [know] that unto Him you will be gathered.} [The Quran 8:24]
And He swt said,
{We verily created the human and We know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than his jugular vein.} [The Quran 50:16]
What is intended by “the heart” and the “jugular vein” in the two verses?

O Ahmed if it had not been for you I would not have created the orbits

Question 8: What is the meaning of the Hadeeth Qudsi by Jabir bin Abdullah Al-Ansari, that Muhammad pbuhap said that Allah SWT said, 

“O Ahmed, if it had not been for you, I would not have created the orbits, and if it had not been for Ali, I would not have created you, and if it had not been for Fatima, I would not have created either of you.” [Mostadrak Safinat Al-Bihar Vol. 3 page 334, Al-Janna Al-Asima page 148]?

How is it appropriate for prophet Abraham to say that the planet or moon or sun is his Lord?

Question 7: How is it appropriate for a prophet from Uli Al-Azem [1], who is Abraham pbuh, to say that the planet, or moon, or sun is his Lord?

Answer: Only a deluded person would assume that these words came from Abraham pbuh in the world of Shahada, meaning this worldly life, even though Abraham perhaps repeated it in this worldly life to reproach his people who worship these planets, or the spirits which move these planets.

Strike with your staff the sea, and it parted

That Pharaohs’ belief came after the water enclosed him and he was drowning in it, however, before death over took him completely.
And this possibility – which Sarkhi imagined to be valid – is incorrect. For the people to say in this physical world means the utterance of words, and this cannot be achieved without a medium in which he utters through, which is the air. So with the occlusion of water the utterance of Pharaoh’s voice was made absent due to the closure of the pathway of air, thus it is not possible for him to say anything.
It should also be noted that the water surrounding Pharaoh was two mountains.

My God! My Master! You have run a law upon me but instead I obeyed the desires of my own self

In Dua’ Kumayl:
(My God! My Master! You have run a law upon me but instead I obeyed the desires of my own self. And I did not guard myself against the allurements of my enemy, he deceived me with that which I desire, and fate helped him in that respect. Thus I transgressed some of Your limits, and I disobeyed some of Your commands.You have therefore a (just) cause/proof against me in all those matters and I have no plea against Your judgement which You passed against me. I have therefore become (justifiably) liable to Your judgement and afflictions. But now I have turned towards You, my Lord, after being guilty of shortcoming against myself and wasting my self, apologetically, repentantly, broken heartedly, entreating earnestly for forgiveness, yieldingly confessing (to my guilt) as I can find no escape from that which was done by me and having no refuge to which I could turn except seeking Your acceptance of my excuse and admitting me into the vastness of Your capacious Mercy)

The Black Stone and Its Relationship with Imam Mahdi

And he said to me: come behind me and I shall make you circle [the Kaa’ba]. So my wife and I went behind him and he made us circle the Kaa’ba (Tawaf Al-Hajj/The Circling of Pilgrimage), and we did not feel any crowd or narrowness [of space], and he was reading Dua’s and Dhikr (invocations), and from them was Dua’ Kumayl, and I was sending a lot of peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad ([making a lot of Salawat]), and I was saying within myself: perhaps this is The Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan (pbuh), but I would say: who am I that the Mahdi may come [especially] for me and make me circle [the Kaa’ba]?!

Peace be upon you father of Al Hasan

During these days, the life of Ali bin Abi Talib, may the prayers of Allah be upon him, was sealed.

A life filled with pain and suffering and which he found no comfort in.
He was a boy but he did not find an opportunity to play like every other boy and enjoy his childhood; Allah wished to dispatch as a prophet the one who raised him, so he found himself in the heart of a verbal battle that often led to the throwing of stones. In fact, sometimes it led to ripping the guts apart
