SAHIFEH SAJJADIEH 13

Sahifah Sajjadiyyah

Doa's 8

 

We seek refuge in Thee from harbouring dishonesty toward anyone, being pleased with our works, and stretching out our expectations. We seek refuge in Thee from ill-mindedness, looking down on the small, satan's gaining mastery over us, time's afflicting us, and the sovereign's oppressing us. We seek refuge in  Thee from acting with prodigality and not having sufficiency. We seek refuge in Thee from the gloating of enemies, indigent need for equals, living in hardship, and dying without readiness

Prayer (Salat) 8

When a Muslim get up in the morning, he performs the "salat" to enable him commence his daily work with a pure heart, goodwill and attention towards the Almighty Allah. At noon, during his lunch break, he temporarily stops his work and again performs the "salat" . He does so, because as he cats to provide Fresh energy and joy to his body, he enriches and cheers his soul through perfotming the "salat". Before resuming his job in the afternoon, he performs the "salat" again so that he may work, with Allahh in mind. After sunset (evening), when it is usually time to stop the daily work and enjoy dinner, he once again performs the "sala", so that he may nourish his soul while gratifying his body withfood. At night , when one about to retire to bed , he once again stands up before Allah and performs his "salat". So , just as he started the day by remembering and prying to Allah Almighty, he end it with "salat" and remembrance of Allah. Thus, he goes to sleep with a comforted soul and a pure heart.

Nahgolbalagheh 12

Nahjolbalaghah 12

Appreciate my advice, O’ my child, and know that He Who is the Master of death is also the Master of life that the Creator causes death a well; that He Who destroys is also the restorer of life and that He Who inflicts disease is also the curer. This world continues in the way Allah has made it with regard to its pleasures, trials, rewards on the Day of judgement and all that He wishes and you do not know. If anything of this advice is not understood by you then attribute it to your ignorance of it, because when you were first born you were born ignorant. Thereafter, you acquired knowledge. There are many matters of which you are ignorant and in which your sight first wonders and your eye wanders then after this you see them. Therefore, cling to Him who created you, fed you and put you in order. Your worship should be for Him, your eagerness should be towards Him and your fear should be of Him.

ALTAFSIR KAUTHAR 13

Kauthar 13

 

In the verse under discussion the term/ an/ is also another emphasis on this meaning and the phrase/ a'taynaka/ 'We have given you', rather than/ ataynaka/, is an evidence to the fact that He has awarded him/ kauthar/, which, itself, is a great glad tiding to the Prophet( p. b. u. h. )in order to keep his holy heart aloof from annoyance resulting from the nonsensical remarks of the enemies, and, consequently, languor does not affect his firm determination, and for him to know that Allah is his support Who is the source of all welfare and grace in abundance.

Supplication:

O Lord! Do not deprive us from the blessings of that 'abundance of good' that You granted to Your Prophet( p. b. u. h. ).

O Lord! You know that we heartily love Your Prophet and his pure progeny( p. b. u. th. ); include us among them.

O Lord! The glory of his essence and his religion is much notable; add to this grandeur, majesty and honour.

The End of Sura Kauthar( The Abundance )

ALTAFSIR KAUTHAR 12

The third prediction of the Sura is that the enemies of the Prophet( p. b. u. h )will be 'abtar', i. e., without posterity. This, too, actually happened and those enemies were so rooted out that no trace of their generations can be seen today. Tribes such as the Umayyad and Abbasids, who opposed the Prophet( p. b. u. h. )and his prophecy and who enjoyed such a population that their family and children could not be counted, today, of which there is not one of them to be introduced.

Allah and the Plural Pronoun:

It is noteworthy that, here, and in many other verses of the Holy Qur'an, Allah introduces Himself by the first person plural pronoun, thus: Surely We have given you abundance of good( Kauthar ).

This sense, and the likes of it, is for the expression of Glory and Power. because when the nobility talk about themselves, they announce not only themselves, but, also their commissionaires, and this refers to the power and nobility as well as to the presence of those in obedience along with the commands.

The character and caliber of ‘Ali as judged by al-Mas’udi’ is, :if the glorious name of being the first Muslim, a comrade of the Prophet in exile, his faithful companion in the struggle for faith, his intimate associate in life, and his kinsman” if a true knowledge of the spirit of his teachings and of the Book” if self –abnegation and practice of justice” if honesty, putity, and love of truth” if a knowledge of low and science, constitute a claim to pre-eminence, then all must regard ‘Ali as the foremost Muslim. We shall search in vain to find, either among his predecessors (save one) or among his successors, those attributes,”

A.RIGHTS OF GOD OVER ONESELF

1. As for the greatest right of God over you, is that you worship Him without associating anything with Him. When you fulfil this (duty) with {utter} sincerity, He has undertaken to Himself to suffice you in the matters of this world and the next, and to preserve for you whatever you like of it.

2. As for the right of yourself (nafs). Over you, is that you should engage it fully in obedience to God: then you render to your tongue its right, to  you render to your tongue its right, to our hearing its right, to your hand its right, to your leg its right, to your stomach its right and to your private part its right, seeking the hep of God in all that

And before you probe into this, you should begin by seeking your Allah’s help and turning to Him for competence and keeping aloof from everything that throws you into doubt  or flings you towards misguidance, when you have made sure that your heart is clean and  humble and your thoughts have come together and you have only one thought which is about this matter, then you will see what I have explained to you: but if you have not been able to achieve that peace of observation and thinking which you would like to have, then know that you are only stamping the ground like a blind she-camel and falling into darkness while a seeker of religion should not grope in the dark or create confusion. It is better to avoid this.

Prayer (Salat) 6

Salat 6

Cleaning of the Heart and Soul

Therefore, in the same way as we wash and clean our clothes and bodies, we must also spend time in cleaning our hearts and souls. To attain the pleasure of Allah – The Primary Source of purity and perfection – we must spend some time for remembering and thanking Him, in supplication and sincere prayer. In this way we shall wash our contaminated souls with the pure and Limpid water of the Divine Fountain. This is what ‘salat’ (ritual prayer) is, which a Muslim performs several timea every day. It is narrated that the holy prophet (S. A.) had concisely said to his companions: Suppose in front of the house of one of you, there is a river, and he washes himself in it five time a day, will there still remain any dirt on his body? They said “No, this washing will cleans the body of all dirt. Then he said, “ the five –time “salawat ( ritual prayers) do the same thing. With these five daily prayers Allah obliterate all one’s sins and makes one pure and clean.

Then there is the right of him who asks you for advice (mustashir), then the right of him whom you ask for (mushir), then the right of him who counsel (mustansih), then the right of him who counsels you (nasih). Then there is the right of him who is older than you, then the right of him  who is younger than you, then the right of him who ask {something} from you, then the right of him whom you ask {something}. Then there is the right of him who does wrong to you by word or deed, or him who makes you happy by word or deed- intentionally or unintentionally.

Fourteen Infallibles 5

The fourteen infallibles  5

Prophet: I am the city of knowledge and’ Ali is the gate. Nobody knows ‘Ali except Allah and I.

When the Holy Prophet reached Yathrib( Medina) and met his followers who had come from Mecca at his call, he immediately appointed for each such followers a person from the people of Yathrib known as Ansar (helpers) who had accepted his prophethood, to be a brother to him. His appointment of brothers was a great act

Of help for the refugees known as Muhajirun (Emigrants), who left their home and come to Yathrib. He made brothers of people who followed the same trade so that the Muhajirun could be usefully employed immediately. While the Prophet was appointing an Ansar a brother to a Muhajirun, Ali who was present there was not appointed as a brother to any Ansar. On being questioned as to why he had not appointed a brother for ‘Ali, the Prophet said: “He shall be a brother to me.

ALTAFSIR KAUTHAR 11

Tafsir 11

Here, we encounter a very interesting discussion from Fakhr-i-Razi who, along with other commentaries on 'Kauthor', says: The third statement is that this Sura has been revealed to reject those who criticized the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. )for his lack of progeny, therefore, the meaning of the Sura is that Allah shall give him a generation which will remain stable through all ages. And consider this, that although a number of Ahlul-Bait have been martyred, the world is replete with them, where as from the Umayyad( who were the enemies of Islam )there remains no mentionable figure in the world. Then, behold and see how many of the great men of leadership such as Baqir, sadiq, Rida, and Nafs-i-Zakiyyah­ 1‑ ... are found among them,( the household ).­ 2‑

The Miracle of this Sura:

This Sura virtually contains three important miraculous predictions. On the one hand, it informs the Prophet( p. b. u. h. )of the glad tidings of the 'abundance of good',( although the verb/ a'tayna/ is in the past tense form, but it may be as the indisputable tense common to the present and future which has been stated in the form of the past tense )and this 'abundance of good' encompasses all victories and successes that were obtained, later, by the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. ); were not predictable in Mecca at the time of the revelation of this Sura.

On the other hand, the Sura foretells that the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. )shall not be without posterity, and his generations and descendants shall exist abundantly in the world.

He rose up against them seeking victory through Thine aid, becoming strong in spite of his weakness with Thy help. He fought against them in the center of their cities and attack them in the midst of their dwellings, until Thy command prevailed and Thy word rose up though the idolaters were averse.

O God, so raise him because of his labours for Thy sake to the highest degree of Thy Garden, that none may equal him in station, none may match him in level, and no angel brought nigh or prophet sent out may parallel him in Thy sight. And inform him concerning his Household the pure and his community the faithful of an excellent intercession, greater than what Thou hast promised him!

Nahjolbalaghah 10

Know O’ my child, that what Iove most for you to do adopt from my will is to fear Allah, to confine yourself to what Allah has made obligatory on you, and to follow the actions of your forefather and the virtuous people of your household, because they did not fall short in seeing for themselves what you will see for yourself, and they did about their affair as you would like to think (about your affairs) Thereafter, their thinking led them to discharge the obligations they came to know of and to desist from what they were not required to do. If your heart does not accept this without acquiring knowledge as they acquired it, then your search should first be by way of understanding and learning and not by falling into doubts or getting entangled in quarrels.

Fourteen Infallibles 4

  The fourteen infallibles

Ali, at all times accompanied the Holy Prophet to help and protect him from his enemies, He used to write down the verses of the Holy Qur’an and discuss them with the Prophet soon as they were revealed by the Holy Messenger, the Gabriel. He was so closely associated with the Holy Prophet that as soon as a verse was revealed to him during the day or night, Ali was the first to hear it. The Holy Prophet has said of Ali; O ‘ Ali, you are my brother in this world as well as in the Hereafter.

ALTAFSIR KAUTHAR 10

Explanation:

Lady Hazrat Fatimah( p. b. u. h. )and Kauthar:

It was said earlier that 'Kauthar' has a vast inclusive meaning which is 'goodness in abundance' and the examples are many. A large number of scholars of the Shi'ah school believe that one of the most clear examples of that word is the auspicious existence of Lady Fatima Zahra( p. b. u. h. ), because the occasion of the revelation of the verse says that they accused the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. )of being without offspring, but the Qur'an says: Surely( O Mohammad )We have given you abundance of good( Kauthor ).

From this meaning we understand that this 'abundance of good' is the very Lady Fatimah Zahra( p. b. u. h. )of whom the descendants of the Prophet( p. b. u. h. )increased abundantly and thousands and thousands of them scattered in the world preaching his religion and preserving it. It is a fact that none can correctly count the number of descendants of Hazrat Ali and Fatimah( p. b. u. h. )who are recognized as the descendants of the holy Prophet( p. b. u. h. ), among whom so many great scholars, scientists, writers, commentators, jurisprudents, traditions and splendid leaders left some outstanding works and unmatched fame in this world, and tried to protect Islam with their donations and devotions.
