Do a Hajj before going to bed. Very interesting. Takes only 2 mins to read. ★The Holy Prophet (SAWS) one day said to Hz.Ali (R.A.) : Ya Ali! Do these 5 things before going to bed at night: ◆ 1. Give 4000 Dinars in Sadaqa and then sleep ◆2. Read 1 complete Quran and then sleep ◆3. Pay the price for Janna'h and then sleep ◆4. Make two people happy with each other when they are upset and then sleep ◆5. Do 1 Hajj and then sleep. ★Hazrat Ali (R.A.) said, Ya Rasulallah! This looks impossible. How will I be able to do it? Then the Prophet (SAWS) replied: ◆4 times reading surah Fatiha is equivalent to 4,000 Dinars giving in Sadaqa. ◆3 times reading surah Ikhlas (Qul hu Allahu Ahad) equals to one complete Quran. ◆3 times reading any durood shareef (Shortest: Sallalaho Alaihi Wa Salam) is the price of jannat. ◆10 times Astagfirullah (or any istighfar) is equals to making two unhappy people happy with each other. ◆4 times third Kalima is equals to one Hajj. ★After this Ali (R.A.) sai ...
What was aired on the rude and blasphemous morning show on Geo, i believe no one should be under any false impression or have any misgiving of the entailing consequences which will follow now. We live in a society where religion is preached by Amir Liaquat, right and wrong is discerned by Hamir Mir, matters of sensitive nature and national security are discussed by Ansar Abbasi, cricket governance is handled by Najam Sethi and crucial public opinion is shaped by the whims of Mir Shakil. Touching the hieghts of arrogance and ignorance, a third time lucky celebration of Veena Malik and Asad Khtk was adorned in a despicable manner with the musical mention of Sacred names of Hazrat Ali (RA) and Fatima Zahra (RA), which we are not even worthy to utter, were desecrated as if these were not the most respectable beings ever but some characters from our folklore, Nauzubillah. Before turning to support this TV Network, please do consider this is some thing above our political and ideological affiliations. I consid ...
Lanaat Lanaat Lanaat on for insulting Bibi Fatima ra & Hazrat Ali ra in a Morning show.
Amidst all craziness going on in the name of Hazrat Ali. Here is my tribute to the Great man.
Where is Imran khan now where is PTI ?? When Geo disrespect in his morning show Hazrat Ali and Hazarat Fatima RA ?
U think an apology will do justice to Hazra Fatima and Hazrat Ali and our Holy Book? U ppl should be shot at first sight
complete case if u like to go through They hv been disrespectful to Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Fatima (R.A).
Cnewsworld: On a morning show on Geo TV they staged a fake wedding for Veena Malik and her husband. It appeared to be a joyous affair full of music and dance, the song choice however left a lot to be desired. Over a loud some loud and thumping background music Geo chose a singer to sing a song about the wedding of Hazrat Ali (as) and Hazrat Fatima. While the host of the show pranced about on stage and gormless *** clapped in the crowds an ebullient singer sang the song containing the words ' Ali ke sath hain Zohra ki shadi' as the camera panned over Veena and her husband. Mubashir Luqman is having a right go at them on his channel. This could be another scandal for the controversial media outlet. PS - Whoever made such a tasteless and tacky song should be shot.

Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti is known as the Khawaja Ghareeb Nawaz as well. He was one of the pious and renowned saints of history. He is the founder of Chisht chain in India. He was born in the Sinjer town of Sesaan. His father, Khwaja Ghiyasuddin was a pious person and a rich trader. He was a Syed by caste and his blood line reaches up to Hazrat Ali (R.A). His father died when he was at the age of 20 years. He was given a garden and a mill as inheritance. So, he adopted the profession of a gardener. He used to perform every activity with his own hands. He watered the trees of the garden, kept the level of ground, took care of plants and used to sell the fruits on his own behalf. One day when he was taking rest in the garden, Abrahim Qandozi (who was a great saint too) came to his garden and brought a revolution in the life of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti with only a single stare. Now, Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaz started to pay his attention towards religious issues. He gave away all of his wealth and reserves in chari ...

In my view, if Sahaba had been alive today, they would have jubiliated on the fact that today they can spread Islam in America, in England, in Australia, in Russia without turning their respective leaders hostile against them. Surely all the countries of Kufar, except few, today allow us to spread Islam within their country legally provided you do it without guns. Hazrat Ali (May Allah Be Pleased With Him) said "Tableegh is the best Jihad". The world has completely changed from as it was 1400 years ago in numerous aspects. When Kufarz of today have no problem if you do Tableegh in their Home Land, then Jihad with guns is totally not understandable.

When He used to talk His companions were all ears. When ever some one else talked He listened attentively, when there was some thing to laugh He smiled, when others were surprised He was astonished.

Speaking about religious and social characters – as the best role models – can highly influence on the life of people. In this article, the writer has made efforts to analyze and propagate the culture of self sacrifice by elaborating on characteristics and behavior of Hazrat Imam Ali [The first imam of the Shiite people] as an outstanding role model. The Holy Quran has mentioned Hazrat Ebrahim [Abraham] and Hazrat Mohammad [The Islam Prophet] as the role models (Momtaheneh Surah, Verse 4 and Ahzab Surah, Verse 21) [Every chapter of the Holy Quran is called “Surah”]. Speaking about the life of Hazrat Ali – the second character of the Islam World – is of high importance; because studying his life strengthens the spirit of piety, innocence, belief, self sacrifice, resistance, bravery, manly behavior and following the truth [God]. There is no limit for doing good works and serving people in Islam. In addition to emphasis on behaving well with human, it has been advised to behave well with the anim ...

HAZRAT SULTAN BAHU (RA) is from the progeny of HAZRAT ALI (RA) and is a direct descended from Hazrat Ali (RA). Traditionally according to the law of the land he is Hashimi and belongs to the tribe of A'wan. Hazrat Sultan Bahu (RA) was born in the village of Shorkhote in Punjab Province in the year 1039 Hijri, during the reign of the great Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Already as a child his Saintly qualities became apparent. He too, like Sheikh Abdul Qadir Gilani (RA), refuses to drink his mothers milk from Sehri to Iftaar (before sunrise to sunset). Despite showing inherent spiritual qualities his training responsibility fell in the lap of his pious, devout and saintly mother, Ma Rasti (RA). In his childhood and early days, she was responsible for both his inward and outward training, colouring his personality in the Prophetic light. Ma Rasti (RA) saw a vision that soon she will be blessed with a child with inherent spiritual qualities whose light of Faqr will benefit many a seeker till the end of time. She ...
Hazrat Wahshi ibn Harb (R.A) Hazrat Wahshi (R.A) was the Ethiopian slave of Jubayr ibn Mut'im. He is best known for making Hazrat Hamza (R.A), the beloved uncle of Holy Prophet (S.A.W), Shaheed (Martyr) in the Battle of Uhud. Before accepting Islam, Wahshi had been appointed by Hind bint Utbah to kill one of the three people (Holy Prophet (S.A.W), Hazrat Ali (R.A) or Hazrat Hamzah (R.A)), so that she may avenge her father's death during the Battle of Badr. Wahshi said in reply, "I cannot approach Muhammad at all, because his Companions are nearer to him than anyone else. Ali too is extraordinarily vigilant in the battlefield. However, Hamzah is so furious that, while fighting, he does not pay any attention to any other side and it is possible that I may be able to make him fall by some trick or by taking him unaware.” After he had Martyred Hazrat Hamzah (R.A), he went to Taa'if up on the Conquest of Makkah but later presented himself in Madina Shareef to accept Islam. Rasoolullah (S.A.W) heard from him ...

Let me first properly introduce myself for those who are in doubt: Alhamdolillah, this faqeer is from Ahl Bayt, a Hasni Hussiani Syed. My both parents are Syeds alhamdolillah. We are from the family of Hazrat Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani. For all Syeds, Rasul Allah (sm) is our Nana mubarak, Bibi Fatima Zahra (RA) is our mother and Hazrat Ali (RA) is our father. Imam Hussain is our elder, our family, our ahl bayt. Our family sacrificed in Karabala and we are honored by it, alhamdolillah. So, now read carefully, what I am going to write. Nobody should give me a lecture on ahl beyt and our sacrifices. That is our family matter and we know our values and traditions. Today, the greatest fitnah which the Crusaders, Mushriks and Khawarij want to create between Ummah is on the basis of Shia-Sunni divide.

Why can't the accept I am a Muslim I must praise all of them... They all are MINE and I love and respect them all.

infact, Hazrat Ali named two of his sons Umar and two of his sons Uthman, not one of each.
Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, all 3 sons of Hazrat Ali, and also those who were first martyred at Karbala
You will only name your child after someone whom you love and adore; Hazrat Ali named his sons Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman.
Hazrat Ali, Hazrat Imam Hassan and Hazrat Imam Hussain, all had children with names of Abu Bakr, Usman and Umar.
It is the sunnah of Hazrat Ali to name his children Abubakar, Umar & Uthmaan. You won't find these names in a Shia family.
The sin which makes you sad and repentant is more liked by Allah than the good deed which turns you arrogant. - Hazrat Ali (A.S) Nahjul Balagha

Ahlebayt named their children Muawiya and maintained marital relationship with his relatives: Muawiyah bin Abdullah bin ja’afar bin Abi Talib: one of the sons of Abdullah he called him Muawiyah, mentionned in Ansab el ashraf P60-68 and Umdat el Talib P56. Yazid bin Muawiyah bin Abu Bakr bin Ja’far (his mother was Fatima Binte Husain bin Hasan bin Ail) Shia website confirmed this:         But unfortunately the present shian e dajjal seems to be more intelligent than ahlebayt because they ridicule the name of Muawiya , giving it incorrect meanings.     Had it been so then why would have Ahlebayt named their children with similar name? And wouldn’t the shia Imams have changed the names of their companions(since shia Imams had close companions named Muawiya)? Moreover Ali Akbar , the son of Imam Husayn, who was martyred in Karbala, was the son of Umm Layla, who was the daughter  of Abu Sufyan’s daughter Maymuna, who was Muawiyah’s sister. Comment: As we have seen the great bonding between ...

" The believers gets examined with sorrow and sadness just the way the gold gets polished by fire " : Hazrat Ali (R.A)
Remember that there are three kinds of people: one kind is of those learned people who are highly versed in the ethics of truth and philosophy of religion, second is the kind of those who are acquiring the above knowledge and the third is that class of people who are uneducated. They follow every pretender and accept every slogan, they have neither acquired any knowledge nor have they secured any support of firm and rational convictions. Remember knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. It decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge the more it increases. What you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you. --HAZRAT ALI (RA)
How foolish is man! He ruins the present while worrying about the future, but weeps in the future by recalling the past - Hazrat Ali ibn Talib radi Allahu 'anhu
“Kabi b kamyabi ko dimagh me or nakami ko dil me Jaga na dena. Qk Kamyabi Dimagh me Takabbur or Nakami dil me Mayusi peda kr Deti hi”. HAZRAT ALI (R.A)
Those who amass wealth, though alive, are dead to realities of life, and those who achieve knowledge, will remain alive through their knowledge and wisdom even after their death, though their faces may disappear from the community of living beings, yet their ideas, the knowledge which they had left behind and their memory, will remain in the minds of people". ---HAZRAT ALI (RA)
A hopeless man sees difficulties in every chance but a hopeful man sees chances in every difficulty.-Hazrat Ali(a.s)
Excellence and Nobility of Hazrat Uthmaan zun-noorain. Uthmaan ibn Affaan was the third Khalifah and hence the third best person in the ummah. His mother urwaa bint kuraiz was a cousin of the prophet sallallaho alaihe wasallam , since his maternal grandmother umme-Hakeem Al-Baidhaa bint Abdul Muttalib was the twin sister of the prophet's father Abdullah.(Tareekhul-khulafaa). He accepted Islam right in the beginning at the dawah of Abu Bakr r.a. He was blessed with the good fortune of being the ONLY man in the entire humanity to be married to two daughters of a prophet ,and not just any prophet but two daughters of the imam and seal of all the prophets. Hence he was known as Zun-noorain, the keeper of "two lights". He was initially married to Ruqayyah radhi Allaho anha. She and Hazrat Uthmaan radhi Allaho anhuma both made hijrah to Abysinia and then to Madinah. When Ruqayyah radhi Allaho anha passed away, the prophet sallallaho alaihe wasallam gave his other daughter Umme Kulthoom radhi Allaho anho in marr ...

THE SUNNI MUSLIMS ... After the death of Muhammad, Muslims who accepted Abu Bakr as the first Caliph became known as Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah or "the people of tradition and unification" in order to differentiate them from the Shi'a, who rejected Abu Bakr's authority in favor of Hazrat Ali, whom Sunnis accepted as the fourth Caliph rather than the first. The first four caliphs are known among Sunnis as the Rashidun or "Rightly-Guided Ones". Sunni recognition included as the first was the aforementioned Abu Bakr; as, the second, Umar; as the third, Uthman ibn Affan; and as the fourth, as mentioned above, Ali. After the first four caliphs, the Caliphate was upheld as a political system by dynasties such as the Abbasids and the Ottomans and the Mughal Empire of South Asia. It was also upheld for relatively short periods of time by other competing dynasties in al-Andalus, North Africa and Egypt. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk abolished the system of the Ottoman Caliphate after Abdülmecid II was officially deposed ...

History of KalabaghKalabagh, on the bank of Indus River, was a state ruled by the Nawabs for nearly 900 years, since the time of Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni. During the British Raj Kalabagh was not made a princely state by the British. It was a jagir that had been ruled by the Nawabs since 1100, while most of the other states were mere inventions of the British. The state was captured by his ancestors who were Awan of Arabs origin. He was very proud of his Awan origin. He always maintained that he was descended from an individual named Qutb Shah, a ruler of Herat and a general in the army of Mahmud of Ghazni, who himself was a Hashemite descendant of the Prophet Muhammad's cousin and son-in-law, Ali (but by a wife other than the Prophet's daughter, Fatimah). As Sir Lepel Henry Griffin states:"All branches of the tribe (Awans) are unanimous in stating that they originally came from neighourhood of ghazni to India, and all trace their genealogy to Hazrat Ali the son-in-law of the Prophet. Kutab Shah, who came f ...
