31-1 My father and Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn al-Waleed - may God be pleased with them - quoted on the authority of Sa’ad ibn Abdullah and Ja’far al-Hemyari, on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Hashem, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Al-Jahm that he had heard Abal Hassan Ali ibn Musa (Imam) Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) say, “Everyone’s friend is his intellect and everyone’s enemy is his ignorance.”

31-2 Ali ibn Ahmad ibn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Imran ad-Daqaq, Muhammad ibn Ahmad Al-San’ani and Al-Husayn ibn Ibrahim ibn Ahmad al-Mokattib - may God have mercy upon them - narrated that Abul Husayn Muhammad ibn Abi Abdullah al-Kufi quoted on the authority of Sahl ibn Zayd al-Adami, on the authority of Abdul Adheem ibn Abdullah Al-Hassani, on the authority of Mahmood ibn Abil Bilad that he had heard Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) say, “Whoever is ungrateful for the blessings from the created ones is not grateful to God the Honorable the Exalted.”

I established Ali as his brother; Trustee; Minister; the one to fulfill the Prophet’s mission for the creatures after him; as My Regent over My creatures to clarify My Book for them; and to carry out My orders amongst them. I established Ali as the guiding knowledge away from deviation; as a gate to approach Me; as a house to which whoever enters is secure from My Fire; as My castle in which whoever takes refuge is immune from the abominable things in this world and the Hereafter; as a face to which whoever turns to I will not turn My Face away from him; as My Proof in the heavens and the Two Earths62 over all My creatures. No one’s deeds are accepted unless they bear witness to Ali’s Mastery and the Prophethood of My Messenger Muhammad. He is My hand that is extended over My servants. He is the blessing which I have bestowed upon those of My servants whom I love.

(Many) will it bring low; (many) will it exalt; When the earth shall be shaken to its depths, And the mountains shall be crumbled to atoms’63 seven times over each seed. Then recite the following verses (of the Qur’an), ‘We know best what they will say, when their leader most eminent in conduct will say, ‘Ye tarried not longer than a day! They ask thee concerning the Mountains, say, ‘My Lord will uproot them and scatter them as dust; He will leave them as plains smooth and level; Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place.’64 seven times over each seed and then blow over it. Take one seed at a time and rub each seed on one wart. Then put all of the seeds in a wet cloth, tie it up and hang it up in a dark place.” Ali ibn No’man reported, “I did so and on the seventh day I looked. There were no longer any signs of the warts. Everything was as clear as the palm of my hand. It is best to do this at the end of the month when the Earth is dark.”

I advise you to be good-tempered as this will cause the good of this world and the Hereafter. Know that those of you closest in looks to Me are the ones who are the best-tempered.”

It had a silver coating. It is with me now.”

Does that apply to looking at just you, i.e. the Immaculate Leaders from the progeny of God’s Prophet? Or does that apply to all of the people from the progeny of God’s Prophet?” Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) replied, “Of course, looking at anyone from the progeny of God’s Prophet is worshipping as long as he/she has not deviated from the straight path and not unpurified himself by committing sins.”

31-198 Tamim ibn Abdullah ibn Tamim al-Qurashi - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his father quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Ali Al-Ansari, on the authority of Abdul Salam ibn Salih al-Harawi, “I went to see Abil Hassan Ali ibn Musa Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) on the last Friday in the (Arabic) month of Sha’ban. Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) told me, ‘O Aba Salt! Most of the (Arabic) month of Sha’ban has passed. Now this is its last Friday. Perform the good deeds that you neglected to do during all this month in the few remaining days. I advise you to do what is beneficial for you, and abandon doing what is of no use for you. Increase the amount of supplications, asking for God’s forgiveness, reciting the Qur’an, making repentance to God for the sins you have committed so that God turns towards you in this month while you have been sincere with your Lord - the Honorable the Exalted. Do not let the responsibility for anything you have been entrusted with remain on your shoulders. Return them to their owners. Do not let any hate for any believers remain in your heart. Throw it away. Do not let any sins that you have committed remain. Get rid of them. Fear God and rely on Him regarding your private and public affairs. God suffices for whoever relies on Him since God is one who perfects His acts. He has indeed established a destiny for everything. You should often say the following in the remaining days of this month, ‘O my God! If you have not forgiven us up until this time of the month, I beg of Thee to forgive us during the remaining period of this month’ as God the Blessed the Sublime frees many people from the Fire during this month for the respect they hold for the (Arabic) month of Ramadhan.’”

As-Sadiq Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.), on the authority of his father (a.s.), on the authority of his grandfather (a.s.), “Salman invited Abu Tharr to his house - may God have Mercy upon them both. He brought two loafs of bread for him. Abu Tharr picked them up and looked at the back of them. Salman asked him, “Why did you do that?” Salman replied, “I wanted to make sure that they have not been baked incorrectly.” Salman got terribly angry and said, “How dare you pick at the bread to see if it is well-baked or not? I swear by God that the water under the Throne has been used in their baking. The angels have worked to make that water reach the winds. The wind has moved it to the clouds. The clouds have worked to send it to the Earth. Thunder and lightening have also been instrumental in this. Also the angels have worked to spread it over the right places in the Earth. The Earth has also worked on it. Wood, iron, animals, fire, firewood, salt and many other things which I did not mention have been at work to make this bread. How can you be grateful for this bread?” Then Abu Tharr said, “I shall repent to God and ask him to forgive me for what I have said. I also apologize to you for what I did which you disliked.”

It has also been narrated that Salman invited Abu Tharr to his house and brought him one loaf of dry bread and wet it with some water from his jar. Abu Tharr said, “How nice it would be if there was some salt to eat with this bread.” Then Salman got up and went out. He pawned his jar to borrow some salt and took it to Abu Thar65. Abu Thar took some of the bread, put some salt on it, ate it and said, “Thanks God that made contentment our share of daily bread!” Then Salman told him, “If you were content I would not have had to pawn my jar.”66

31-205 According to the same documentation, Abdul Adheem ibn Abdullah Al-Hassani narrated that he asked Muhammad ibn Ali Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) about the Honorable the Exalted God’s words, ‘Woe be to thee, (O men!), yea, woe! Again, woe be to thee, (O men!), yea, woe!’68 He (a.s.) replied, “The Honorable the Exalted God says, ‘You became distant from the good of this world. You will also become distant from the good of the Hereafter.’”

31-206 (The author of the book narrated) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’d ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ali al-Kufi, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Abil Aqeeb al-Sayrafi, on the authority of Al-Husayn ibn Khalid al-Sayrafi, “I asked Abil Hassan Ali ibn Musa Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.), ‘What is the decree about one who cleanses himself (after defecation) while wearing a ring with the slogan There is no god but God (La illaha illallah) marked on it?’ The Imam (a.s.) replied, ‘It is an abominable act.’

Al-Husayn ibn Khalid al-Sayrafi asked, ‘May I be your ransom! Is it not so that God’s Prophet (S) and your forefathers did this while wearing their rings?’ The Imam (a.s.) replied, ‘Yes. But they wore their rings on their right hand.69’ Then the Imam (a.s.) added, ‘Fear God and take care of yourself.’70

Al-Husayn ibn Khalid al-Sayrafi asked the Imam (a.s.), ‘What was the mark on the ring of the Commander of the Faithful?’ The Imam (a.s.) said, ‘Why don’t you ask about that of the people before him?’

205 - وَبِهذَا الإِسناد عَنْ عَبْدِ العَظِيم بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّه الحَسَنِيِّ قالَ: سَأَلْتُ مُحَمَّد بْنِ عَلِى الرِّضاعَلَيْهِمَا السَّلاَمُ، عَنْ قَوْلَهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ (أَوْلى لَكَ فَأَوْلى ثُمَّ أَوْلى لَكَ فَأَوْلى‏) قالَ: يَقُولُ اللَّه عَزَّ وَجَلَّ: بُعْداً لَكَ مِن خَيْر الدُّنْيا [بَعْدا] وَبُعْداً لَكَ مِن خَيْرَ الآخِرَةِ.

فَقالَ: أَكرَهُ ذلِكَ.

فَقُلْتُ لَهُ: جُعِلْتُ فِداكَ، أَوْ لَيْسَ كانَ رَسُول اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَكُلُّ واحِدٍ مِنْ آبائِكَ‏ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلاَمُ يَفْعَلُ ذلِكَ وَخاتَمُهُ فِي إصبَعَ لَهُ؟

فَقالَ: بَلى. وَلكِن كانُوا يَتَخَتَّمُونَ فِي اليَد الُيمنى‏، فَاتَّقُوا اللَّه وَانظُرُوا لانفُسَكُم.

قُلْتُ: وَما كانَ نَقشُ خاتَم أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنين‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ؟ قالَ: وَلَمْ لا تَسأَلَني عَمَّا كانَ قَبْلِهِ؟

Then Al-Husayn ibn Khalid al-Sayrafi said, ‘O.K. Now I will ask. What was marked on the ring of Adam (a.s.)?’ The Imam (a.s.) replied, ‘It was There is no god but God. Muhammad is the Messenger of God. Adam descended to Earth with that ring. When Noah (a.s.) was about to board the Ark, the Honorable the Exalted God revealed to him, ‘O Noah! If you fear that you will be drowned say There in no god but Allah one-thousand times and then ask me to rescue you from getting drowned and save those who are with you.’ When Noah and the people with him climbed aboard the Ark and he released the cable, it became stormy. Noah feared to get drowned when the storm got stronger. He did not have enough time to say There is no god but God one-thousand times. So in the Soriani language he said, Haylolia hizar hizar ya marya, ya marya, ayqen meaning Haylolia a thousand times, a thousand times. O Waves! Calm down! The waves calmed down and the Ark came to a steady condition. Noah (a.s.) said, ‘Now that the Words of God have saved me, they deserve to never be separated from me.’ Thus he put down There is no god but God a thousand times O Lord! Improve me.

The Imam (a.s.) added, ‘When Abraham (a.s.) was placed on the catapult Gabriel got angry. The Honorable the Exalted God sent him a revelation and asked, ‘O Gabriel! What made you angry?’ Gabriel said, ‘O Lord! This is Your friend! There is no one else on the Earth who worships you. Now You have let Your enemy and his overcome him (Abraham).’ Then the Honorable the Exalted God revealed to Gabriel, ‘Relax! Rushing is for someone like you who is scared of death. But as for Me, I consider him to be My savant and can attend to him whenever I wish.’ Thus Gabriel’s (a.s.) soul calmed down and went to Abraham (a.s.) and said, ‘Do you need anything?’ Abraham (a.s.) said, ‘Nothing but good for you.’ Then the Honorable the Exalted God sent Gabriel down to him with a ring on which it was written There is no god but God. Muhammad is the Messenger of God. There is no power nor any strength save by God. I entrust my affairs to God. I rely on God. God suffices for me. God sent him a message which said, ‘Put on this ring and I will make the fire cool and healthy for you.’ The Imam (a.s.) added, ‘There were two statements from the Old Testament on Moses’ ring meaning, Persevere to get rewarded. Tell the truth to be saved. The Imam (a.s.) added, ‘That which was marked on Solomon’s ring means, Glorified is He who controlled the genies with His words. And the following taken from the Bible was

In another tradition it has been narrated that ‘Khazeya Wa Shaqeya Qatil Al-Husayn ibn Ali’ was marked on Ali ibn Al-Husayn’s ring which means ‘the murderer of Al-Husayn - the son of Ali (a.s.) - is contemptuous and miserable.’

31-207 (The author of the book narrated) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’d ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn Al-Husayn ibn Abil Khattab, on the authority of Ali ibn Asbat that he had heard Ali ibn Musa Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) quote on the authority of his forefathers (a.s.), on the authority of Ali (a.s.) that God’s Prophet (S) said, “None of the wise sayings of the Prophets have remained except: ‘If you have no shame, then do whatever you wish!’”

31-208 Ahmad ibn Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashem - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his father quoted on the authority of his grandfather, on the authority of Ali ibn Ma’bad, on the authority of Al-Husayn ibn Khalid, on the authority of Abil Hassan Ali ibn Musa Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.), on the authority of his father Musa ibn Ja’far (a.s.), on the authority of his father Ja’far ibn Muhammad (a.s.), on the authority of his father Muhammad ibn Ali (a.s.), on the authority of Ali ibn Al-Husayn (a.s.),

Once when Imam As-Sadiq (a.s.) was asked about this he said, “Since the love for Ali (a.s.) equals faith, and despise for him equals atheism, and Paradise is for the faithful ones and Hell is for the atheists, then that is why Ali (a.s.) is said to be the one who will allocate Heaven and Hell.” A similar tradition has also been narrated from Imam Ar-Ridha’ (a.s.) in response to a question from Al-Ma’mun.

Each one of them We seized for his crime: of them, against some We sent a violent tornado (with showers of stones); some were caught by a (mighty) Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up; and some We drowned (in the waters): It was not Allah Who injured (or oppressed) them:" They injured (and oppressed) their own souls.”[Qur’an, 29:39-40].

They spent a lifetime in the battlefields, military training, scientific inquiry and discussion. They were also virtuous on par with the monks and theosophists of the East. Today, with the information available on his meditations on God, Abu Tharr is the best guide to knowing the Quran. A look at the Prophet's companions indicates that all were just, sensitive warriors, and constructive individuals who were concerned with building a better society and establishing justice.

Pomegranates typically thrive well when grown in regions where the temperature is mild and where there is little humidity. Pomegranates are the fruits that are produced from the pomegranate tree, which is a tree that can grow to heights of up to 25 feet. Pomegranate trees live for many years and produce many fruits. The pomegranate tree is also an attractive tree that bears white and red flowers. Once a pomegranate tree is planted, its fruit begins to develop after approximately one year. Pomegranates are also very anti-parasitic in property. As stated in the March 2001 edition of Nutrition Science News, "Pomegranates are a top antioxidant."

Our bodies produce several kinds of wastes, including sweat, carbon dioxide gas, feces (also known as stool), and urine. These wastes exit the body in different ways. Sweat is released through pores (tiny holes) in the skin. Water vapor and carbon dioxide are exhaled (breathed out) from the lungs. And undigested food materials are formed into feces in the intestines and excreted from the body as solid waste in bowel movements. Urine, which is produced by the kidneys, contains the by-products of our body's metabolism - salts, toxins, and water - that end up in our blood. The kidneys and urinary tract (which includes the ureters, bladder, urethra, and the kidneys) filter and eliminate these waste substances from our blood. Without the kidneys, waste products and toxins would soon build up in the blood to dangerous levels.
  • 38. Lentils are a low calorie, low fat and protein rich food as well as being inexpensive. Lentils provide more folic acid than any other food. Lentils are also an important source of iron. Eating lentils with foods rich in Vitamin C, such as tomatoes, green peppers, broccoli etc. helps the body absorb iron more efficiently. Soluble fiber found in lentils decreases blood glucose and cholesterol and decreases insulin requirements for people with diabetes.
  • 39. Pulses, including lentils, are increasingly being used in health-conscious diets to promote general well-being and reduce the risk of illness. They are low in fat, high in protein, and are an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibre, complex carbohydrates, vitamins (especially B vitamins) and minerals (especially potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc). Lentils are an inexpensive, high quality source of protein. Since lentils are high in fibre, low in fat and are cholesterol free, they are an excellent heart healthy food that may be beneficial to the prevention of coronary and cardiovascular disease. Eating lentils may help lower blood cholesterol levels due to their high content of soluble fibre and vegetable protein. Lentil consumption can be beneficial in the management of type-2 diabetes because lentils have a low glycemic index of 55 or less, indicating that their effect on blood glucose is less than that of many other carbohydrate containing foods. Lentils also have other health effects, such as reducing blood lipids, that may help some serious complications of diabetes. Flour made from lentils is gluten free and is a very nutritious option for people with celiac disease. Lentils fit well in vegetarian diets as they are a good source of iron and protein, and complement the amino acid profile of cereal grains and nuts. Insoluble dietary fibre consumption can be beneficial to a healthy colon and has been associated with reducing the risk of colon cancer. In addition, diets high in fibre have demonstrated beneficial effects on weight loss because they deliver more bulk and less energy. Lentils contain non-nutritional components called phytochemicals which have demonstrated favourable effects in the prevention and treatment of numerous chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension.

It is a cracking of the skin, and a dissundering and gradual falling off of the flesh. However, leprosy is a well-known disease, which is a whiteness incident in the skin, which appears upon the exterior of the body, by reason of a corrupt state of constitution.

Upon the accession of Ali (a.s.) to the caliphate, Mu’awiya refused to pay him allegiance, and in 658 A.D. the Syrians acknowledged Mu’awiya as caliph. That same year he gained control of Egypt; following Ali's (a.s.) martyrdom in 661 A.D., he subdued Iraq and then formally established himself as caliph. The Umayyads dynasty ruled from 661 A.D. until 750 A.D.

  • 62. There is some evidence of two earths in the Biblical literature and also among the scientific community. For example consider the following, “It is suggested that the four centres of the projections, grouped as they are in pairs, might represent two magnetic fluxes of remote origin. From here it is a short step to the surprising notion of the existence of two magnetic forces that, through the galaxy, could give rise to two magnetic fields which, in turn, generate the Rotating Magnetic Field whose particular dynamic mechanisms could be considered the real originators of the dynamic stress to which the Earth is subject, and not only the Earth but also the Sun and other planets. This is an idea which, on the basis of the principles enunciated by Galileo Ferrais on the existence of a bipolarity in the presence of rotating magnetic fields, could justify and consolidate the figure of a second Earth. This line of reasoning exceedingly gratified long years of study and the discoveries made in the period from 1960 to 1980 which now, with the intuition about the existence of two Earths as a pair, confirms the proposal of a geocentric conception. This conception could have been considered a purely imaginary idea before the revealing discovery was made about rotating dynamics generated by the presence of the bipolarity which can be expressed by the nuclei of the two Earths. The concept of bipolarity evidently leads to suggest the existence of a universal magnetism on which the innumerable galaxies depend and to think that the nuclei of the Earths follow an extra-galactic course. It also becomes plausible to deduce that the whole Universe is linked by an interminable series of magnetic fluxes.” [Source: NEW CONSIDERATIONS ON GEOLOGICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL ASSESSMENTS with url address http://www.geo-eliocentrismo.it/english/nuovevalutazioni.htm
