43. Almighty Allah Helps In Worship
Regularity in praying for our master, the Master of the Time (aj) would be a cause of being helped by Allah in worship. That which proves this is a tradition mentioned in Oddattud Dai from the Messenger of Allah (S) that he said:
Allah, the Mighty and the High said: “When I know that My servant is mostly occupied with Me, I make him passionate in supplicating and Munajaat, and when a servant is thus, if he wants to commit a mistake I come between him and the error; truly they are my Awliya and indeed they are warriors.”
The point derived from this tradition is: Just as verses of Qur’an and traditional reports say, Dua is one of the most important worship acts and there is no doubt that the most valuable and important type of Dua is Dua for someone whose right the Almighty Allah has made obligatory on all the creatures. And through the Barakah of whose being all the things get blessings and benefits.
And also doubtlessly being busy with the Almighty Allah means being occupied with His worship and it is this regularity in which is a cause that the Almighty Allah helps man in worship and makes him among the Awliya of Allah. The conclusion is that: Regularity and steadfastness in Dua for our master, the Master of the Time (aj) and supplicating the Almighty Allah for the early reappearance of His Eminence would be a cause of receiving this great benefit.
On the basis of this, it is obligatory for the people of faith that in every time and place they should make special arrangements for this. And the matters that support this point are that my dear brother in faith and the great scholar Mirza Muhammad Baqir Isfahani1 – may Allah exalt his status and grant him whatever he wishes – recently narrated to me that: One night in dream – in half sleep and half wakefulness – I saw my master, Imam Hasan Mujtaba (as) that he said something like this: Say to the people from the pulpit and order them that they should repent and pray for the early reappearance of Hazrat Hujjat (as). And this Dua is not like the funeral prayer (Salaat Mayyit) which isWajib Kifai so that if some do it, others are absolved. Rather it is like the Daily Ritual Prayers which is obligatory on all who are able and all have to perform it…”
