Brothers in Islam,

The live nations always remember their special days so as to provide guidance to the coming generations. The most important of the nations is Millat-e-Islam. "Islam is a singular nation".
The whole Islamic history is imbibed with different important days which also include 'Youm-e-Ghadeer' and 'Youm-e-Mubahila'. Youm-e-Ghadeer is on Zilhij 18, the day on which the Holy Prophet (SAW) delivered an important Message of God: (Translation) 
 "O, Prophet! Deliver them the message which has come to you from your God. If you did not do so then consider that you have not delivered any of His Messages. And do not be afraid, God will protect you from the evil" (Sura Maidah, Ayat 67)

Ibne Hatim quoting Saeed Khudri (R.A.) said this Ayat come down in Ghadeer-e-Khum in honour of Hazrat Ali (A.S.).

The Holy Prophet (SAW) asked his disciples to make a stage (Mimber) using 'Palaan-e-Shutr' in Ghadeer-e-Khum where more than one lakh Sahaba Karaam were present. He then sat on the stage, praised God Almighty and addressed the Sahaba Karaam: "Am I not better than all of you and am I not your Maula?" They all said with one voice: "Yes, yes, Ya Rasool Allah".

The Holy Prophet (SAW) then took the hand of Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.), raised it and said: (Translation) "This Ali is the Maula of all those who accept me as their Maula". Then all Sahaba Karaam in general, and Hazrat Umer ibne Khattab (RA) in particular, greeted Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) saying: "O, the son of Abi Talib, accept our greetings". "Congratulations, O, the son of Abi Talib (A.S.) that today you have become our Maula and of all the Momineen".

On this occasion God Almighty sent down an Ayat: (Translation) "Today the religion has been completed". This Ayat indicated that the religion which was not complete before has been completed after the Holy Prophet (SAW) delivered that Message. So the religion completed by the announcement of Wilayat-e-Ali.

Youm-e-Mubahila is on Zilhij 24, the day on which Mubahila took place. Christians of Najran were not satisfied with the preachings of the Holy Prophet who threw a challenge of Mubahila on them by the Commandment of Allah:

(Translation) "When the Quran has reached you, and even after that someone confronts you about Hazrat Eisa (A.S.) then ask them to come out. We bring our sons and you bring yours, we bring our women and you bring yours, we bring our lives and you bring yours, then we bow down before Allah and seek cursing of the God for those who were lieing" (Sura Aal-e-Imran, Ayat 61)

Therefore, the Holy Prophet (SAW) brought Ali, Fatima, Hassan, and Hussain (A.S.) with him in Mubahila. On seeing these holy personalities Christians of Najran not only accepted the truthfulness of Islam rather they accepted to give 'Jazia' (Capitation Tax). Thus the great victory for Islam.
We observe 'Hafta-e-Wilayat' from Zilhij 18 to 24 to commemorate these two days every year for the last so many years. On this occasion we resolve to always prefer our religion on world because Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) have increased the dignity of the religion rather they sacrified all their belongings for the upgradation of Islam.

Today our motherland Pakistan, which was created in the name of religion, was confronting a host of problems. Importance is being given to no-religion in place of religion, and materialism in place of spiritualism. Biases are being promoted in place of Shariat, Hypocrisy in place of politics, and enmity in place of love as a result of which Pakistan has been converted into 'Zulmistan'.
We will all have to follow the character of Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) if we desire to make it 'Roshinistan'.

The Khakpai Muslimeen,

on the occasion of" YOUM AL-HUZN"
On Rabi-ul-Awal 26 to Mark the Death of Hazrat Abu Talik (A.S)


Brothers in Imaan and Islam!

He is the Creator, there is universe, the earth and the sky. There are human beings, why, and what was the objective to create them.

To reach a conclusion, and to adopt it after believing it in these matters and other similar affairs is called religion, maslak, maktab, Imaan, and belief. This religion is the best of all other things in the universe and all relations have no value in front of this religion. The relations can be given up like Hazrat Noah has ousted his son from his fatherhood. The wife of Hazrat Noah showed an example of sacrificing her relation and all their belongings. So did Ummul Momineen Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.) who spent all her wealth for the promotion of the religion of Islam. Relationship with the motherland is considered the holiest relation but the Holy Prophet (SAW) left Makkah and Syed-us-Shuhada Hazrat Imam Hussain (A.S.) left Madinah giving us a message that the religion was more dear to them than the motherland in the wake of any threat to the religion. This has been the strongest argument in favour of Imaan-e-Abu Talib (A.S.) that followed the same religion which was preached by Paighambar-e-Islam Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). Had he been following any other religion then he should not have accepted the responsibility for the upbringing of Paighambar-e-Islam after the demise of Hazrat Abd Al-Mutlib, had not taken him along on trade tours, had not read his Khutba-e-Nikah, had not gone through the process of facing atrocities at the hands of Kuffar facing economic sanctions confining himself to the Shoeb-e-Abi Talib for three years, and had not asked his son (Hazrat Ali) to sleep in the bed of Paighambar-e-Islam so as to save him.

No power of the Kufr, how big it may be, could cause any harm to Paighambar-e-Islam during the life time of Hazrat Abu Talib who enjoyed immense and dignified place in the heart of the Holy Prophet that he greatly shocked on two occasions during his era spread over 63 years that he termed the two different years Aam Al-Huzn (the year of mourning) in which the father of Hazrat Abu Talib (father of Hazrat Ali Murtaza) and Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (mother of Hazrat Fatima Zehra) passed away. Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) achieved this great honour owing to his service for Islam and he would not have been bestowed with such an honour had his belief been different from that of Paighambar-e-Islam. It is believed that Paighambar-e-Islam always uttered those words which had come to him as 'Wahi' which means that terming those two years 'Aam Al-Huzn' was the Godly Directive. The poetry in the honour of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) said by a renowned Ahle Sunnat scholar Azauddin Abdul Hameed bin Abdul Hadeed Mu'tazali praising his Imaan and religious commitment is the beacon of light for the Muslims (See Nehjul Balaghah, third edition, S-318 published in Egypt).

Without Abu Talib and his son Ali, the religion of Islam would not have achieved that laurels which were achieved with their help. Abu Talib (A.S.) brought up the Holy Prophet (SAW) in Makkah and supported him while Hazrat Ali (A.S.) protected him in Madinah. Abd Munaaf (Abu Talib) continued the upbringing of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and Hazrat Ali (A.S.) completed that service. Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) left this world leaving his 'Khushboo' in the shape of Ali. Abu Talib (A.S.) laid the foundation of services to be rendered for God Almighty and Hazrat Ali (A.S.) achieved recognition by putting that services to their extreme. Utterances of any illiterate and foolish people cannot harm the greatness and dignity of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) as if someone insists it is dark early morning but that does not cause any harm to the morning signs. Observing the 'Gham' of Abu Talib (A.S.) is Sunnat-e-Nabawi. Today the whole Islamic World in general, and Pakistan in particular, was on the target of enemies of Islam and Pakistan is being punished for conducting nuclear blasts while Aalam-e-Kufr following in the foot-steps of Kuffar-e-Makkah was imposing every type of sanctions on them but was also trying to mould them according to their own desires. In these circumstances we have Shoeb-e-Abi Talib episode to follow that how Paighambar-e-Islam taking refuge in Shoeb-e-Abi Talib along with his Ahle Bait declared upon the Dunya-e-Kufr that they cannot stop him from preaching Islam even if they place the Sun on their one hand and the Moon on the other. Today the Ummat-e-Muhammadia and the citizens of this pious land Pakistan who follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAW) are set to tell the colonial powers the world over that such sanctions cannot cause any harm to them as a Momin is bound to follow the Godly commandments only. 

On the occasion of Youm Al-Huzn we present condolences in the honour of Paighambar-e-Islam and resolve that our life and death is for the religion and the motherland.
Wassalam Ma'al Ikraam

 on the occasion of
"AL-QUDS DAY HIMAYAT-E-MAZLOOMIN"


The respect for Allah's signs is obligatory for all. These signs are instrumental in seeking the Ma'arfat of Almighty Allah and one of these is a greatest sign of all i.e. Al-Quds Al-Sharif for which the God says: "He is Pious Who took His man from Masjid Al-Haram to Masjid Al-Aqsa (Bait Al-Maqdas) in the night around which We have showered Barkat so as to show the Prophet some signs".
Bait Al-Maqdas is a part of Palestine where there are natural canals and fruits in plenty and which enjoys an extraordinary status being the hub of Anbia-e-Karam that is why it has been termed Ba-Barkat. But unfortunately it was taken over by Israel that keeps on trampling its dignity and sanctity off and on. Islam is a Millat and likewise Kufr has also been termed a Millat. It is tragic that the Ghairat of Islamic World was in deep slumber while the Kufr was united. Russia was carrying out atrocities against Chechen Muslims after crushing Muslims in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Kosovo, Zionists were creating trouble for Palestinians bombing Lebanon while causing harm to Al-Quds day in and day out, India was making the life of Kashmiris miserable for the last 52 years, crushing minorities in India besides desecrating their places of worship. Babri Masjid is one such example.
The chief terrorist America was imposing sanctions on Sudan, Iran, and Afghanistan in the garb of Islamic movements, engaged in killings of innocent people including women and children in Iraq and still attacking Iraqi areas including the holy places of Najaf Ashraf, Karbala-e-Mualla, Kazmain, Baghdad and Samrah. The United Nations, on the other, was playing the role of American slave while the only representative body of the Islamic World i.e. OIC was keeping criminal silence over all these developments providing food for thought to the Islamic World.
There is no justification for these organizations to exist. We strongly condemn the atrocities against the whole of humanity in general, and the Islamic World in particular rather we, following the saying of Amirul Momineen Maula Ali (A.S.) are enemies of the oppressors and friends of the oppressed. We respect the Tehriks launched by the oppressed all over the world and express full solidarity with their struggle for independence. 

We demand from the United Nations to:

     1.Get free Al-Quds from the Israeli occupation.
     2.Palestine should be given full independence.
     3.Russian oppression against Chechen must stop.
     4.Economic sanctions against Muslim States be lifted and they must be given right to live.
     5.Indian atrocities against Kashmiris must stop, India should be pressurized to accept the          ........Kashimiris' right to self-determination and solve the Kashmir issue in the light of the United ........Nations Resolutions ensuring peace in the region.

Wassalam,

 on the occasion of "YOUME HURMAT-E-NISWAAN"
on 20th Jamadi -us -Sani

he Creator of this world has bestowed supremacy to some articles over others. Man has been termed Ashraf-ul-Makhlooqaat in whole of the universe while Khanwada-e-Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) has been named best and super most Khanwada among the human beings. Therefore, the wisest of all the last Prophet of Islam (SAW) has declared his Sharafat-e-Nasbi and family supremacy on many occasions. 

On one occasion, he says: "Allah has selected Hazrat Ismail (A.S.) from Aulad-e-Ibrahim (A.S.), Bani Kananah from Aulad-e-Ismail (A.S.), Quresh from Bani Kananah, Bani Hashim (A.S.) from Quresh, and myself (Muhammad, SAW) from Bani Hashim (A.S.) {Kitab Al-Shifa, Qazi Ayyaz}. Then what he said on another occasion means that there were many Sahiban-e-Fazeelat and Kamil Al-Iman among men but there are only four women in the world who are placed at the highest pedestal of supremacy, honour, and Iman: Aasiya binte Mazahim, Mary (the mother of Christ), Khadija binte Khawelad, and Fatima binte Muhammad (SAW) {Tafseer Kishaaf & Tafseer Baizawi}. 

For that very reason, the Holy Prophet (SAW) used to respect Hazrat Fatima Zahra (S.A.) and loved her in a manner that no one in the universe could be loved. The Holy Prophet (SAW) said Fatima (S.A.) is a part of my body, whoever caused any harm to her caused harm to me; and whoever caused harm to me has caused harm to Allah. The only basic reason for respecting Hazrat Fatima (S.A.) was ideology because the Ulema-e-Akhlaq have the consensus that favour of religion and thought is superior than all other favours that means that a person could leave anything but ideology and ideology is linked with Iman and belief. 
The Holy Prophet (SAW) was well aware that only Khanwada-e-Fatima Zahra (S.A.) was capable of protecting the belief and ideology introduced and preached by him. Fatima (S.A.) whose father is the super most in the universe, whose mother is the guardian of woman rights, whose husband Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) is the Imam-e-Mubeen, whose pious offspring are the protectors of the holy religion of Islam and Fatima Zahra (S.A.) herself is the leader of women all over the universe. 
Zulm-o-Barbariyyat was the order of the day all over the world, Dunya-e-Kufr was in full control all around, idol-worship was common instead of worship of Tauheed, woman was the name of disrespect and humiliation, price of a woman was not more than one camel, she was used to be buried alive soon after her birth. All of a sudden the echo of Tauheed spread all over the world and the day on Jamadi-us-Sani 20 dawned in Makkah leaving the dark night behind in the shape of Fatima (S.A.) who gave respect to woman in the universe and took the sanctity and greatness of woman from earth to the highest extreme giving such a place to her she can boast on rightly. That place is heaven under the feet of mother. 
The Holy Prophet (SAW) then declared upon the universe that all human beings enjoy equal status and piousness was the only standard of supremacy. Fatima (S.A.) was not only placed on the highest pedestal of piousness but was also biggest supporter of the oppressed and protector of woman rights and sanctity of woman on the basis of her Zuhd-o-Taqawa. Woman today is wandering all around facing humiliation and disrespect demanding rights for woman while the colonial powers were misusing her obscenity for self-interest. If today's woman is sincere to be laced with honour and sanctity, she would not get it by knocking at the door of colonial powers but only by bowing down on Dar-e-Fatima (S.A.) who is the guiding force and beacon of light for women all over the world. 
On this auspicious occasion, let us make a commitment that we will protect the message and mission of Khanwada-e-Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad (A.S.) which actually is the Khanwada-e-Zahra (S.A.) and would utilize all our resources and energies in defending and promoting their pious mission and Nazria-e-Asaasi which also is the Pakistan's Nazria-e-Asaasi.

On the occassion of "YOUME AL HUZN" 
(10 Ramazan)1420 Hijree

Almighty Allah has termed the human being as Ashraf-ul-Makhlooqat and standard of Sharaf-o-Fazeelat amongst human beings is Zuhd-o-Taqwa. It is said: "In Akramakum Indallah Itqaqum" (Allah considers one distinguished and honoured who follows Taqwa). There is no discrimination between man and woman, strong and weak, young and old, any one with Taqwa whether belongs to any colour and creed, Allah gives him importance. Asaas of Taqwa is Iman. Stating the Tafseer of the last Ayah of Surah Tehreem, the Mufassireen has written that there had been many Kamil Al-Iman amongst men. "Wa Lam Takmal Min Nisa Al-Arbah" but Kamil Al-Iman amongst women who reached the height of Sharaf-o-Fazeelat were four: Aasia binte Mazahim, Maryam the mother of Eisa, Khadija binte Khwelad, and Fatima binte Muhammad. Hazrat Fatima (S.A.) is that great a personality who was the chief of the women in the universe. It is crystal clear that when the daughter enjoys a great status then one can imagine what could be the status of Fatima Zahra's mother. She was Khadija binte Khwelad (S.A.) who was the first to certify the Rasalat from amongst the women rather she displayed the great exemplary sacrifice by giving a helping hand to the Holy Prophet (SAW) in his chores of Risalat and Nabuwwat. Today Islam is on its heights courtesy Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) who played full part in the process. If men boast that they have great sacrifices for Islam then women could also say with their heads high that Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) was that Malikatul Arab who if not showered her all wealth in the feet of the Holy Prophet (SAW) then Islam may have remained incomplete. That is why Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) amongst men and Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) amongst women have the singular honour that the Holy Prophet (SAW) termed the years of their death Aam Al-Huzn (year of grief). This spirit shows the respect they enjoyed from the Holy Prophet (SAW). 

It has been said that when Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.) was nearing death, she asked the Holy Prophet (SAW) to sit near her for a while so that she could see his face while taking the last breath. Then she said: "Thou Holy Prophet, Fatima (S.A.) is young, I am going to hand her over to you". The Holy Prophet (SAW) neared the daughter, sat her in his lap, kissed her and said, Fatima (S.A.) is the piece of my heart. At last Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) briefly said: "A part of my life was spent serving you, I wish you to take care of me on the day of Judgement and do Shifa'at for me. Forgive me, if I lacked in fulfilling any of your right. Maula, there is another request to you that I would like to make through my daughter, Fatima (S.A.). Therefore, as directed by mother, Hazrat Fatima (S.A.) requested her father saying: Baba, my mother desires that the chaddar you used to wear at the time of Wahi may be given for her coffin so that she could become the centre of Allah's blessings. The Holy Prophet (SAW) went weaping hearing this and handed over that chaddar to his daughter. In the meanwhile, Jibrael Ameen appeared with a Message of God and said: Thou Holy Prophet, Khadija (S.A.) is Mohsina-e-Islam because she has spent all her wealth in the way of God. Under "Hull Jaza Al-Ehsan Al-Ehsan", Allah feels that Khadija's (S.A.) coffin is His responsibility and it would come from the Heaven. After that, Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) breathed her last (reference Muftah Al-Jannah Muhammad bin Ashaar Fakhar Al-Muarrekheen Al-Muqaddas Al-Zanjani). Hazrat Khadija (S.A.) has the honour that she was given the coffin from the Heaven. It could be judged from this conversation that what status she enjoyed before God and the Holy Prophet (SAW). Woman in this dark era desires absolute independence. If she ponders and acts on wisdom she would find out that she has been given honour and respect that could not be given in any other religion and Millat. If she desires that her respect to be restored, she has the Seerat-e-Khadija Kubra (S.A.) for her to follow as a complete example. She could give train and upbring her offspring decently by following that example. That way they could emerge successful by following the Islamic principles and get rid of the colonial aggression and atrocities against the Islamic World including Kashmir and Palestine besides raising the Parcham-e-Islam in Kashmir and Palestine after getting these areas freed. On the occasion of Youm Al-Huzn, we reiterate our resolve that we will make the foot-prints of Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.), who is the mother of Millat-e-Islamia, beacon of light for ourselves. Taking advantage of this occasion, we strongly demand from the Saudi government to restore the dignity of the mausoleum of Ummul Momineen Hazrat Khadijatul Kubra (S.A.), and reconstruct the mazars of all Mashaheer-e-Islam including the Jannat Al-Mualla and Jannat Al-Baqee. The dream of the Islamic World could not come true unless they do all that desired. 

On the occasion of " AYYAM-E- AZAA" 
(19-21 Ramazan)1420 Hijree

The objective of Ba'asat of Khatmi Martabat (SAW) was the completion of morality and character. "Ba'asat Laa Tamam Makaramul Akhlaq" (I have been sent to complete morality). It declares that human character-building was the main objective of the Islamic religion and for this purpose we need to quote a best example. "Laqad Kana Lakum Fi Rasool Allah Asswah Hasanah" (No doubt, the personality of Rasool Allah is an example for you). Definitely, only that personality could be quoted as an example that "Minal Mahad Ilah Al-Lahad" is decorated with every good thing and piousness. Thus like the Holy Prophet (SAW), the Khanwada-e-Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad is also pious. "Innama Yureedullah Le Yazhab Ankumur Rijsa Ahle Bait Wa Yutahirrukum Tatheera". After the Holy Prophet (SAW), the greatest personality of this Khanwada is Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) for whom the Holy Prophet (SAW) has said, "Ana Wa Ali Min Noor-e-Wahid" (Me and Ali were created with one Noor). I was showered with Nabuwwat while Ali with Imamat, I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its door, Ali is the Maula of all those I am Maula of. Hazrat Ali (A.S.) has the singular honour in the universe to be born in Ka'aba and being martyred in mosque, he is that great personality who opened his eyes in the lap of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and Holy Prophet's closed his eyes in Ali's lap. Every moment of Maula Ali's life was spent with Rasool (SAW). About his childhood, Hazrat Ali tells himself: the Holy Prophet (SAW) used to make me sit in his lap and hug in my childhood, and used to feed me after mashing the food in his mouth. When Ali stepped out of his childhood, it was a time when the manly power was on its height. At that time, Ali was defending not only the Holy Prophet (SAW) but Islam also, with his strong arms. During the war of Hunain when the enemies surrounded Muslims, it was only Ali who not only helped the Holy Prophet but also forced the enemy to drive back. Whether at home or outside, during journey or stay, whether it is Makkah or Medina or the battlefield, he remained with the Holy Prophet all along and never chose to run away. He was only afraid of Allah and used to say: By God, if there is me on one side and all the persons in universe on the other, I will fight with them alone without caring of any critic. Ali is an example within himself imbibed with qualities of Shua'at, Sakhawat, Seerat, character, Guftaar and Rehm-e-Karam. The Holy Prophet (SAW) says: Ya Ali "Nafsaka Nafsi" and Allah says: "Qul Ta'alu Al-Da'au Abna'ana Wa Abna'ana Kum Wa Nisa'ana Wa Nisa'au Kum Wa Anfusana Wa Anfusakum". In this Ayah Ali has been termed Nafas-e-Rasool. Ali is the only personality in the universe who claimed "Salooni Salooni Qabal Un Tafqadooni" (Ask me from wherever you desire). Another saying of Maula Ali goes: By God, a Momin keeps a friend in me and Munafiq keeps enmity. Similarly he says: Always keep fearing a mean because he does not have the fear of God. Maula-e-Kainaat terming the Muslim a reflection of Muslim had advised that if he commits a mistake, make him understand that politely. Alas"! Muslim Ummah could have benefited from Ali (A.S.) so as to see an altogether perspective. Then there would have no colonial aggression against Muslims, no violation of honour and dignity of Kashmiris and Palestinians at the hands of Zionists and Hindus, no problems being faced by the Islamic World and there would have no victims of Zulm-o-Barbariyyat. Shahadat is hereditary for a Momin and Ali (A.S.) is the personality that is called Amirul Momineen. He always waited for Shahdat and the time of Shahdat came near at last. It was 19th of Ramazan and Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) was busy in saying Fajr prayers when a voice came out from his pious lips: "Fazat Be Rabb Al-Ka'aba" (By Rabb-e-Ka'aba, I have achieved success). Hazrat Gabriel spoke out that Arkaan-e-Hidayat have been demolished, Amirul Momimeen has been killed. People came out from their homes listening this and took the wounded Maula-e-Kainaat Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) to his home. Ibne Muljim was arrested. Ali (A.S.) made a will to his son, Hassan Mujtaba (A.S.): My son, Hassan, it is up to me to punish him or set him free if I survived, but if I breathed my last then do not give him more than one beating. Son, take care of his food as long as he is in jail, he should not remain hungry or thirsty. These last words uttered by Ali (A.S.) are the beacon of light for Dunya-e-Adl. Visibly, Ali was no more but his life-style is the leading source for whole of humanity even today. Hazrat Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.) passed away from this finite world on Ramazan 21 in the Hijra year of 45 in the age of 63. His enlightened mausoleum is in Najaf-e-Ashraf and spreads the guiding light towards the whole world. We resolve on the occasion of Ayyam-e-Aza to continue our pious struggle for the promotion of Wilayat-e-Ali and enforcement of Nizam-e-Mustafa under the Intizaam-e-Murtaza in the motherland that was achieved in the name of Islam. We will never hesitate in offering any sacrifice in the larger interest of Islam, Pakistan and its people.

 

On the occassion of " AYYAM-E-SADIQ AAL-E-MUHAMMED"

(15-17 Shawwaal 1421 hijree)

 

          Almighty Allah says: Ya Ayyohal Lazinah Aaman-ut-Tuqullah Wa Koonu Ma’as Sadiqeen (Oh, the people with Iman, be afraid of Allah and include yourself in those who speak truth). The message is addressed not to the general people but the people imbibed with Iman. One who enjoys Iman has to do two things; i) adopt Taqawa; ii) keep company with those who speak truth. The real meaning of Taqawa is to safeguard the Nafs from every thing that is supposed to be harmful but sometimes the word Taqawa and fear are used in similar meanings. In terms of Shariat safeguarding Nafs from each and everything that could involve it in sin is Taqawa. The meaning of truth is unison of heart and the tongue while the Nafs for that matter is in line with such happening. If none of these two conditions is fulfilled the complete truth could not survive because worship of God is termed the purpose of creation of human beings and height of the worship has been termed Taqawa. A pious person could never ever adopt the company of those who lie. Besides discussing Taqawa, we should also keep in mind that Sadiqeen enjoy more honour than the pious persons. Those imbibed with Iman have been asked to keep the company of Sadiqeen after adopting Taqawa. As Islam is a universal religion, complete code of life and source of survival, it is imbibed with solidarity, positive posture and eternity. Therefore, question does not arise that any moment or era is free of Sadiqeen. The real Sadiq is the person who is free of every type of evil, lie, Munkiraat from the lap to the grave and is decorated with all types of good habit performing good activities. 

          From amongst these Sadiqeen is a great personality of Khanwada-e-Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad, Hazrat Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) who enjoys the title of Sadiq Aal-e-Muhammad and his every saying and activity is truth. He is the sixth heir of his grandfather Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). He was named Jafar ibne Muhammad following the name of Holy Prophet’s cousin Hazrat Jaffar Tayyar. He is the pious son of Baqar Al-Uloom Hazrat Muhammad Baqar (A.S.) and his mother’s name is Umme Farwah binte Qasim binte Muhammad bin Hazrat Abi Bakar. Qasim bin Muhammad was considered one of the seven pious persons of Madinah Munawwarah and Hazrat Umme Farwah was woman of character, Kamil Al-Iman having full knowledge of Shariah commandments. Hazrat Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) was the best example of his forefathers as far as his moral, habits, and character is concerned. The character of a person indicates his moral and everyone is identified from his character. There are very few persons who do not allow their inner feelings to effect their character rather what is in their hearts is indicated to others through their character. That is why the inner and outer of a Momin is the same rather inner is more clearer than the outer.

          The life of Imam Jafar Sadiq preached the real religion, moral and character like his forefathers. If you study the whole universe you would not find a father and a son who are similar in knowledge, deeds, moral, character, language, gait, thinking and approach but this quality could only be found in Khanwada-e-Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad that is headed by the Holy Prophet (SAW). They are seen following the same path, same objective, same target, same approach, same thinking and one could not find any difference in their language, moral, character and gait. That is why the Holy Prophet had said: “Awwalona Muhammad, Ausatona Muhammad, Aakhirona Muhammad and Kullona Muhammad” (Hadis).

          The all phases of the holy life of Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) were beacon of light for the world of humanity. Momineen who have been directed in the Holy Quran to adopt Zuhd-o-Taqawa and that objective of which has been termed worship, it actually is the best judge of human importance. All human beings enjoy similar status and it is only Taqawa that give them edge over the others. Hazrat Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) was decorated with Taqawa like his forefather Ali ibne Abi Talib (A.S.). Malik ibne Anus says that Imam Sadiq (A.S.) always used to be busy in worship of God, he was a great pious person. Abdul A’ala says: I had seen Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) going somewhere in the summer season, I asked him that with great Iman and attachment with the Holy Prophet (SAW) why you are out in this hot weather? He replied: I am going to fetch my livelihood so that I fulfil my responsibility. It indicates that there is honour in labour. Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) used to wear best outfit when out and used to ride the best horse. Some people considered it against Zhud-o-Taqawa. Once a person by the name of Sufyaan objected that you are a member of Khanwada-e-Muhammad but are wearing the best outfit. The Imam replied: Look Sufyaan, there is a simple Khaddar outfit beneath this best outfit. I have chosen to wear this outfit so that unwise persons like you do not think that I am a Faqeer or very poor while the Khaddar outfit you are wearing has a soft and best outfit beneath it so as to befool the people. Oh Sufyaan, don’t be narrow-minded as Zuhd-o-Taqawa could not be achieved through wearing the best outfit but through character and deeds. The hard times faced by a person in his life indicate how much Iman he has been enjoying.

          Imam Jafar (A.S.) confronted all difficulties that came in his life with courage and fortitude and used his tongue to curse anyone. He launched jehad against dumping and preached the knowledge to Muhammad and Aal-e-Muhammad all around. He established an Islami University in the city of Madinah. It is blessing of Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) on whole of the universe that he left so many pupils imbibed with the knowledge he had. Some names in the Fuqhas are Zararah and Muhammad bin Muslim; in beliefs and knowledge of talking are Hasham and Momin Al-Taaq; in Irfaan-o-Ma’arif are Mufazzal and Safwaan; in mathematics and science are Jabir bin Hayyan. Almost more than four thousand students achieved training in different sciences and arts in the University of Sadiq Aal-e-Muhammad who preached this knowledge further throughout the world, worked to the benefit of Islamic World, put down the Parcham-e-Kufr and keeping the Parcham-e-Islam fluttering high. Hazrat Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.) kissed martyrdom on Shawaal 15 in 148 Hijra and was buried in Jannatul Baaqee. One of the golden sayings of the Imam goes: The fruit of keeping love is wilderness and grief while piousness and being good provides satisfaction to the body and the soul. One who tries to fulfil the requirements of a brother in Islam, he carried out Jehad in the way of Allah. The foremost objective of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan is to preach the teachings of the Imam, welfare of the people, promotion of love and tranquillity, and rejecting the biases because the preacher of Islam and Shariat is Hazrat Muhammad (SAW), spokesmen Aal-e-Muhammad amongst and so is the Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S.). Therefore, we are observing the days of Sadiq Aal-e-Muhammad marking the martyrdom of Imam Sadiq (A.S.). We resolve on this occasion to promote righteousness and truth and will never allow any one to cause harm to his pious mission, to our motherland and to our religion because truth needs no justification.
