I ask pardon, my God,

For all of these and their likes, with an asking of pardon in remorse which may act as an admonisher against similar things ahead of me. So bless Muhammad and his Household and make my remorse for the slips into which I have fallen and my determination to refrain from the evil deeds which present themselves to me a repentance which will make Thy love for me obligatory,                                              O lover of those who repent!

Commandment 31

He has opened for you the door of repentance. Therefore, whenever you call Him He hears your call, and whenever you whisper to Him He knows the whisper. You place before Him your needs, unveil yourself before Him, complain to Him of your worries, beseech Him to remove your troubles, seek His help in your affairs and ask from the treasuries of His mercy that which no one else has power to give, namely length of life, health of body and increase in sustenance. Then has placed the keys of His treasuries in your hands in the sense that He has shown you the way to ask Him.

Reciprocal right 15

Rights of acts.

As for the right of ritual prayer (salat) is that you must know that it is an arrival before God and that through it you are standing before God. When you realize it, then your stand will be that of a humble {servant of God}, longing {for His grace}, afraid {of His punishment}, fearing {His displeasure}, hoping {for His mercy}, poor, imploring {His kind-ness}, respecting the One in Whose presence you stand with calm and quite, showing reverence in your limbs, submitting your soul to Him, telling Him the secrets of your heart in a fine manner, asking Him to emancipate you from the sins which have enslaved you and the mistakes which have ruined you. And there is no power save in God.

Prayer (Salat)

Salat

How to Perform the Salat.

At first we should condition our soul for worshipping the Almighty Allah. Then by expelling all other thoughts from our mind, We focus our entire attention toward Him.

Beginning with Takbir after Resolving for Salat (Fig. 1)

In all sincerity and whole- heartedly we utter “Allahu Akbar” i.e., Allah is the Greatest. Allah is Supreme and Sublime. Allah is incomprehensible and beyond our imagination.

Thus, with the utterance of Allahu Akbar, the greatness of all other things vanishes form the eyes of the worshipper. Hethen thinks of nothing but the grandeur of Allah and with all his heart and soul, he stands humbly before his Creator for salat and glorificatio

Murder

Ali’s effort to establish the Kingdom of Allah on earth, was cut short by the assassin’s sword. Ibn Muljam, the tool of Mu’awiyah, murdered ‘Ali while he was saying his morning prayer and was crowned with martyrdom on 21st Ramadan 40 A H, and was buried in an-Najaf al-Ashraf (Iraq), (See photo on p.50). Born in the House of Allah, the Kabah and was killed in the House of Allah, the Mosqueof Kufah, the Lion of Allah, the most brave-hearted and gentle Muslim that ever lived, began his glorious life with devotion to Allah and His Apostle and ended it in the Service of Islam. And do not speak of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead; nay (they are) alive, but you do not perceive. (2: 154)

His Supplication in Asking Pardon for Misdeeds to God’s Servants and for Falling Short in their Rights and that his Neck be Set Free from the Fire

O God, I ask pardon from Thee for the person wronged in my presence whom I did not help, the favour conferred upon me for which I returned no thanks, the evildoer who asked pardon from me and whom I did not pardon, the needy person who asked from me and whom I preferred not over myself, the tight of a believer who possesses a right incumbent upon me which I did not fulfil the fault of a believer which become evident to me and which I did not conceal, and every sin which presented itself to me and which I failed to avoid.

Nahjolbalaghah 18

Commandment 31

Know that in front of you lies an impossible valley where in the light-burdened man will be in a better condition than the heavy-burden one, and the slow-paced would be in a worse condition than the swift-paced. Your terminating point at the other end of this passage will necessarily be either Paradise or Hell. Therefore, reconnoitre for yourself before alighting, and prepare the place before getting down, because after death there can be no preparation nor return to this world.

Know that He who owns the treasuries of the heavens and of the earth has permitted you to pray to Him and has promised you acceptance of the prayer. He has commanded you to beg from Him in order that He may give you and to seek His mercy in order that He may have mercy on you. He has not placed anything between you and Him that may veil Him from you. He has not required you to get a mediator for you to Him, and if you err, He has not prevented you from repentance. He does not hasten with punishment. He does not taunt you for repenting, nor does He humiliate you when humiliation is more appropriate for you. He has not been harsh in accepting repentance. He does not severely question you about your sins. He does not disappoint you of His mercy. Rather He regards abstention from sins as a virtue. He counts your one while He counts your virtue as ten.

ALTAFSIR --Surah Nas

(commentary)Noor al-Quran(    Vol12    page 319

By invoking this great attribute, Man can be hopeful and expect an especially particular retreat. Everyone should seek refuge with Allah as their King and Owner, invoking His authority over the affairs of Man, i. e., He is the One Who can independently act over His creation to seek the protection by invoking the divinity of the Lord as the God of Mankind for it is His authority which must necessarily be obeyed, i. e., it is His command or His Will which is always done. Therefore, against the evil of these whisperers, there are heavenly angels for the believing servants of Allah and seekers of Truth, to come to help them, as Sura Fussilat, No. 41. Verse 30 says: In the case of those who say: 'Our Lord is Allah', and, further, stand straight and steadfast, the angels descend on them( from time to time )...

But, in any case, we should never be proud and feel that we are not in need of the Divine lessons, admonishments and assistance. We should always take refuge with Him and be aware and prepared.

Supplication:

O Lord! Protect us all from the evil of every tempter and dark inspiration.

O Lord! The trap is deep, the enemy is wakeful, his plots are hidden, and rescue is impossible but with Your Grace.

Al-Qiblah---the Direction (of Ka bah) which a Muslim Facees at Salat

Then stand facing the Ka ‘ba, the House renowned for the remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim (A.S.) the hero and champion of monotheism along with his son Prophet Isma’il (A.S.).These tow, the father and the son of pure temperament, once built this House at Makkah for the worship of Allah, the One and the Unique. Islam has declared this House as the very focal point of monotheism, and the Muslims have been ordered to turn their faces towards it, wherever in the world they may be, during the performance of their ‘salat’ so that it becomes the focal center of monotheism. The Holy Qur’an says:   و من حیث خرجت فول وجهک شطر المسجدالحرام و حیث ما کنتم فولوا وجوهکم شطره . 

"And from whatsoever place you set out, turn your face towards Al-Masjidul-Haram (the Sacred Mosque); and wherever you are, turn your faces towards it. (The Holy Qur’an, 2: 150) The place where we perform ‘salat’ and our dress should be unobjectionable, i.e., not having been acquired by force, nor by violation of the rights of others, nor these should be prohibited from other Islsmic viewpoints.

Nahjolbalaghah 17

Commandment 31

Know that self-admiration is contrary to propriety (of action) and is a calamity for the mind. Therefore, increase your striving and do not become a treasurer for (wealth to be inherited by) others. When you have been guide on the right path humble yourself before Allah as much as you can. Know that in front of you lies a road of long distance and server hardship and that you cannot avoid seeking it. Take your requirements of provision keeping the burden light. Do not load your back beyond your power lest its weight become a mischief for you. Whenever you come across a needy person who can carry for you your provision to hand it back to you on the Day of judgement when you will need it, then accept him as a good opportunity and get him to carry it. Put in that provision as much as you are able to, for it is likely that if you may need him (afterwards), you may not get hold of him. If a person is willing to borrow from you in the days of your affluence to pay it back to you at the time of your need then make use of this opportunity.

Ali

Among sufferings and chaos, the Muslims clamoured to elect ‘Ali as the successor of the Holy Prophet and caliph of Allah.

Looking to the condition of the society, how everyone was running after this world, ‘Ali at first refused to accept the responsibility of the state, but on the third day with great reluctance, he agreed to take up the charge and to accept their oath of allegiance as a caliph. Following the footsteps of the Holy Prophet, ‘Ali established the Islamic tolerance and justice, brotherhood and goodness, He re-lit the torch of Islamic learning and progress. ‘Ali’s famous sermons and lectures given from the minber (pulpit) of the mosque of Kufa and on other occasions, have been published in a book called Nahju’l-balaghah are worth reading. In his old age, Ali’ had to make three more jihads in the battles of camel, Nahrawan and Siffin against the hypocrites, who rebelled and revolted against the commands of the Holy Qur’an and the Apostle of Allah.

As for the right of your stomach, is that you should not turn it into a container for what is unlawful { to you ] – whether little or much –and that you should not overeat, otherwise, it will turn eating into gluttony and loss of dignity { instead of giving you strength }, and you should keep it under control when hungry or thirsty because over-eating causes laziness, hinders one from work and cuts a man off from every good and nobility ; and over-drinking makes one look stupid and ignorant, and destroys one’s dignity.

ALTAFSIR Nas 4

 

 

If they appear on the scene in their real form, if they do not mix wrong with right, and if they speak clearly and honestly, the truth would become apparent; as Hazrat Ali( p. b. u. h. )says: The fact is, had falsehood been allowed to appear separately from truth, seekers of truth would have easily discerned it and would have kept away from falsehood ....­ 1‑

They always take parts of truth and falsehood and mix them together to get control over people; as Amir-al-Mo'mineen Ali( p. b. u. h. ), continuing the above sermon, says: ... and Satan took advantage of this situation and gained complete control over the minds of its followers ...­ 1‑

The words 'whispers' and 'hearts' used in the verse: Who whispers evil into the hearts of Mankind are an emphasis on this idea.

All of these are on the one hand, and on the other hand the phrase: 'From Jinn and Mankind' informs us that 'the slinking whisperer' is not among only a group of people or a special class of Man with a particular sign, but they can be found here and there among Jinn and Man with any form and in any society. We should be careful of them and take refuge with Allah from the evil of all of them.

Explanation::

Why Do We Take Refuge With Allah? At any moment it is possible that one may go astray, and when Allah bids His Apostle to take refuge with the Lord from the evil of the 'slinking whisperer' it is an evidence that becoming involved in the trap of the tempters, who whisper evil in people's minds, is possible. So, everyone must seek refuge to Allah, with His name/ rabb/, i. e., the Lord of Man, i. e., the Cherisher and Sustainer. By invoking this great attribute, Man can be hopeful and expect an

Reciprocal right 13

As for the right of your hand, is that you should not extend it to what is forbidden to you, otherwise, you will earn punishment from God in the life hereafter and condemnation from people in this life. And you should not withhold it from {actions} which God has made obligatory for you. Rather you should enhance the honour of your hand by withholding it from unlawful things and by extending it for most of such {good} deeds which are not even obligatory for you, because if the actions of your hands are based on wisdom and nobility, they will surely reap a good reward in the life hereafter.

Ali the Caliph

During his caliphate of nearly four years and nine months, Ali followed, exactly, the way of the Prophet and gave his caliphate the form of a spiritual movement and renewal and began many different types of reforms.

According to the Holy Qur’an, Prophets and Apostolic Imams are chosen by Allah and not elected, nominated or appointed by men.1- When under Divine instructions the Prophet invited fourty Arab chieftains and delivered the message of Islam, he proclaimed ‘Ali as his Successor and Caliph.2- When the Holy Prophet of Islam was returning to Medina after his last pilgrimage to Mecca 11 A H, he under Divine instruction, stopped at Ghadir Khumm and in the midst of about 124,000 Muslim, he officially and finally proclaimed ‘Ali as his Successor and Caliph.

Commandment 31.

The example of those who are deceived by this world is like the people who were in a green place but they become disgusted with it and went to a drought-stricken place. Therefore, for them nothing is more detestable or abominable than to leave the place where they were to go to a place which they will reach unexpectedly and for which they are heading. O’ my child, make yourself the measure (for dealing) between you and others. Thus, you should desire for others what you desire for yourself and hate for others what you hate for yourself. Do not oppress as you do not like to be oppressed. Do good to others as you would like good to be done to you. Regard bad for yourself whatever you regard bad for others. Accept that (treatment) from others which you would like others to accept from you. Do not talk about what you do not know even though what you know be very little. Do not say to others what you do not like to be said to you.

Salat prayer

Wudu’ the Ritual Ablution before Salat.

First wash the face and then, the arms, from elbows to the fingers; then draw the wet hand, once from the top of the head up to the forehead, and then on the feet. The Holy Qur’an says:

یا ایها الذین آمنوا اذا قمتم الی الصلوه فاغسلوا وجوهکم و ایدیکم الی المرافق وامسحوا بروسکم و ارجلکم الی الکعبین .

“ O you who believe! When you rise up for the Salat, wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe, your heads and feet to the ankles…..(The Holy Qur’an 5:6)

Wudu, should be performed with pure niyyah (intention), and for the sake of the Almighty Allah. If any part of the body becomes najis ( impure), we should wash it and also wear tahir (pure ) clothes.
