A meeting between Ayatollah Haqshanas and Imam Zaman (A.S.)
One of the students and close friends of the religious scholar Hazrat Ayatollah Hajj Mirza Abdul Karim Haqshanas, in a telephone interview with him by the reporter of Labik, he shared an unspoken and instructive memory of that divine scholar, which you will see below:
Mr. RL said: The late Haj Agha (Ayatollah Haqshanas) missed his flight at Mehrabad airport when he wanted to go to Mecca and had to be sent alone for the next flight.
After getting off the plane in Saudi Arabia (Jeddah) because no one knew him and he had lost his caravan and he also did not know where the accommodation of the caravan and his companions was, they boarded a taxi and the taxi driver accompanied them. A convoy is disembarked and they are not treated with respect during this route.
Even that caravan gives a place like a warehouse where onions, potatoes, etc. were kept to Ayatollah Haqshanas and they say that you are not our pilgrim.
Ayatollah Haqshanas, who had become “distressed” due to his old age and physical condition on the one hand, and people’s inappropriate treatment of him, found recourse to the holy presence of Sahib al-Zaman (a.s.) (Imam Mahdi a.s.) in the same place (the hotel storeroom).
Ayatollah Haqshanas says: Until I found refuge with Hazrat Hojjat (A.J.), Agha (A.J.) came, I stood up, I stood up, he smiled at me and I held Agha Imam Zaman for 15 minutes and I reported to them that I I got stuck on the flight, I lost my way and…they mistreated me, they said these things to me and they say you are not one of us… I used to say that they heard all my prayers, after my prayers were over, Hazrat Hojjat came, when Imam Zaman left, suddenly the door of the warehouse opened and the head of the Iranian consul in Jeddah came in and said where were you and we searched for you a lot and…
Then, after expressing this memory, Mr. R-L continued by quoting Ayatollah Haqshanas:
This was while no one knew where Ayatollah Haqshanas was, then he was treated with great dignity and respect and all facilities were provided.
After expressing this memory, Ayatollah Haqshanas used to say:
Any person in need, wherever he is, appeals to Hazrat Baqiyat Allah, Hazrat himself will come.

The opinion of the Shia – the opinion of the Sunnis
Which is more rational?
In all divine and non-divine religions, it is emphasized on the savior of the end of time that he will eliminate oppression and oppression in the world and establish the rule of justice.
Not much has been said about the characteristics of the savior, but in Sunni religion it is claimed that the savior is born before the advent and rises in youth or middle age and fills the world with justice and justice after it has been filled with oppression.
We know that throughout the history of mankind, there has never been a single person to rule over all the people of the planet.
And regarding the implementation of justice on earth, the first prophets who were constantly in contact with the source of revelation and received orders from God through Gabriel. They were also unable to establish complete justice in the small community where they appeared and remove oppression from their society. We even have the case of Prophet Noah who, despite 950 years of prophecy, was able to make a handful of people follow his beliefs, let alone govern and implement justice in Society .
- Now, how can we accept that a person who was born from ordinary parents and has no connection with revelation. At the age of 30-40, he can form such a religious government in the age of inexperience that he can take over all the military-political and economic governments in the world and create justice in the world and all the nuclear and non-nuclear powers. subjugate the world. So, with the knowledge that was only obtained from the appearance of the Qur’an and hadiths, what if we have the words of our honorable imams, which at the end of time, religion is like an upside-down sheepskin. Also, using traditions that have undergone changes and distortions over the course of 1400 years. So, common sense does not allow an ordinary person with this ordinary ability to do something that no prophet has ever done.
Arbaeen Hosseini is famous for the 40th day of the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him) and his faithful companions, which coincides with the 20th day of the month of Safar.
According to some reports, the prisoners of Karbala went to Karbala on the 20th day of Safar 61 AH on their return from Syria to visit the grave of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) and other martyrs. However, some scholars such as Sheikh Tusi and Sheikh Mofid believe that the captives went from Syria to Medina; Also, some scholars, writers and Muqatil considered it unlikely that the captives arrived in Karbala during the first Arbaeen of Hussain and rejected the traditions and evidence in this case. However, Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari’s arrival in Karbala in Arba’in and the visitation of that Prophet, there is not much difference between the sources and the tradition of Arba’in pilgrimage was established by him.
Arbaeen pilgrimage is one of the recommended actions of this day and according to a narration from Imam Hassan Askari (peace be upon him), it is considered one of the signs of a believer. Shiites mourn on this day. The Arbaeen walk to Karbala is one of the largest mourning ceremonies and one of the largest religious gatherings in the world.
On the night of Ashura, the Imam gave a speech to his companions and said: The target of Yazid and his army is me, and they want me to pledge allegiance to Yazid, while the humiliation of pledging allegiance is far from me. I prefer to die with dignity than to live with the shame of allegiance to this corrupt person. The Imam said: As you know, Ibn Ziyad sent a large army to fight with us (it is mentioned in history that there were thirty thousand people in Ibn Ziyad’s army). And with these few people that we have, surely none of us will be alive tomorrow. Therefore, I take my allegiance from you and turn off the lights so that you can use the darkness of the night without shame and return to your city with your family. (This was one of the fountains of Imam’s chivalry, although he was a little strong, but he was not ready for anyone to lose his life for him and his family.). With this suggestion of the imam, some people took advantage of the darkness of the night and left. But every one of them was upset when they heard these words and said that it is not a pity that you die and we live after you. And some of them said that if we become martyrs 70 times on this road and come back to life, we will still sacrifice ourselves to you and your way.
The day before Ashura, Shammar was one of the commanders of Ibn Ziyad’s army. Because the brothers of Imam Hussain (A.S.) (Abbas (Abul-Fazl) Aoun, Jafar and Abdullah) their mother was from his tribe, he had obtained a letter of protection for them from Ibn Ziyad. He asked them to leave the Imam’s tents and get a letter of protection in front of the Imam’s tents. He faced the harsh and humiliating treatment of Hazrat Abbas and his brothers and returned embarrassed.
When the day of Ashura came, it had been three days that Ibn Ziyad’s army had closed the Euphrates water route to the Imam and his companions.
This was while the Imam had pitched a tent on the edge of the Euphrates a few days before, when Ibn Ziyad’s army was still small. He left the way for drinking water and even ordered the horses to water themselves and take whatever water they wanted.
This dam caused thirst in the tents and companions of the Imam and was an important factor in weakening the forces of the companions of the Imam. As we have in the hadiths that Hazrat Ali Akbar (eldest son of Imam) after making several brave attacks on the enemy. He returned to his father and said, “Father, I am thirsty, I see the sky dark.” Imam Hussain started crying and said, “My son, put your tongue in my mouth, maybe it will quench my thirst a little.”
The Imam said: Be patient, my child, you will soon be fed by the hand of the grandmother of the Messenger of God. And Hazrat Ali Akbar returned to the field and killed a number of other enemies. He advanced to the heart of the enemy and fell down from his horse. Suddenly, his voice was raised to shout for me. Like an angry lion, the Imam tore through the enemy army and appeared on the bed of his son and placed his head on his chest until his soul was separated from his body. He said, O my son, I will leave this world after you.
The imam brought Ali Akbar’s body to the front of the tents and placed it next to the purified body of the other martyrs.
As Imam was a zealous person, he wanted no one to be exposed to the tent of his Ahl al-Bayt and his companions as long as he was alive. Therefore, they pitched the tents in such a way that the enemy could only attack them from one side, and that side was also limited by digging a ditch and filling it with firewood in order to set fire to them in times of danger. At this time, one of the enemy’s people came near the ditch and said, “O Hussein, you want to burn in the fire of hell in this world” and the Imam cursed him.
His horse ran from the side of the ditch and knocked him to the ground and went to hell.
During the 10 days they were stationed in the plain of Karbala, the Imam regularly advised the enemies. On the last day, before the war started again, the Imam preached a sermon to the enemy’s army and said: “Was it not you who sent me a letter to come to Kufa?” And he ordered one of his companions to take all the letters and even called the people of the enemy army by name saying that this is not your letter. In the end he said: Now that you don’t want me, I have nothing to say. Let me go back to my city and country. Or should I go to other provinces? Am I not the son of your Prophet? What will you gain by killing me?
Imam said: If you have no religion, at least be a free man. They said: You have only one way and that is to pledge allegiance to Yazid.
The Imam said: The humiliation of swearing allegiance to the corrupt Yazid is far from us. One of the enemies shouted, “Hossein, stop, you have made us tired, and only the sword will judge between us and you.”
After fulfilling the duty, the Imam gave the command to be ready to fight.
First, the companions of the Imam came one by one and asked permission from the Imam to go to the battlefield. With their brave attacks, which were caused by the spirit of martyrdom. Some of the enemies were sent to hell. And finally, they died due to exhaustion, thirst and injuries. From 80 years old to 13 years old, they were among the Imam’s companions.

Although Muawiya knew that Imam Hussain (a.s.) would rise against him if he had an opportunity, and even though he even threatened Imam (a.s.) at times, he refrained from taking practical action against that Imam. After the death of Muawiya, the situation changed; Because on the other hand, Yazid was known for his debauchery and irreligion, and he did not care about committing any sin even publicly. He was a raw and inexperienced youth and had no experience in Islam. For this reason, he was not privileged and acceptable among the Companions and their children.
On the other hand, a large group of Kufa people had announced their readiness to accompany Imam Hussain (AS). Imam (a.s.) saw the ground for revealing the true face of the Umayyads and helping God’s religion, and he started his uprising and movement with the aim of reviving God’s religion. In the first stage, if possible, that Imam sought the formation of an Islamic government, and otherwise, he fulfilled his duty by martyring himself and his companions. In his words, he has expressed the motives of his uprising, which we mention.
First: Revealing the true face of Bani Umayya
Eid al-Qorban or Eid al-Adha is the tenth day of Dhu Hajj, which is one of the great Islamic holidays. According to traditions, on this day God commanded Ibrahim Khalil to sacrifice his son Ismail. He took Ishmael to the altar, but Gabriel came down with the “goat” and Ibrahim sacrificed it instead of Ishmael. The tradition of sacrifice on the day of Eid al-Adha in the land of Mena commemorates that event. Muslims who go to visit the house of God for Hajj, according to conditions, they are obliged to sacrifice in Mina.
In religious sources, practices for the night and day of this Eid are mentioned. Staying awake, bathing and pilgrimage Imam Hussain (pbuh) is one of the practices of the night of Eid and bathing, Eid al-Adha prayer, offering sacrifices, pilgrimage Imam Hussain (pbuh) and reciting the Nadbah prayer are some of the activities of Eid day. Fasting on Eid al-Adha is forbidden.
Eid al-Adha is an official holiday in Islamic countries and Muslims celebrate on this day.
Is the Prophet of Islam superior to all the prophets of God? Surely, We have exalted some prophets over others. asra /55
Imam Sadegh (as) said: That the first prophets are 5 people and creation * revolves by the blessing of their existence. “Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (PBUH) (the first prophets, Olel-Azm).” 3
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: The Almighty God has exalted His sent messengers over His close angels and made me superior to all the messengers and messengers … »4 3 and 4. , C 3, p 198.
Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi says in this regard:
“The prophet is apparently a messenger; That is, all the prophets had the status of prophethood, but the status of mission was assigned to a group of them. And according to a narration … the number of messengers is three hundred and thirteen, and naturally their position will be higher than the position of other prophets, just as the messengers themselves were not the same in terms of position and virtue, and some of them were the position of Imamate. “They are also honored.” 5
From a rational point of view, it can be said that the scope of the prophets’ field of operation is directly and closely related to their scope of existence; That is, the progress and development of each prophet in the field of science and practice and his utilization of physical and divine knowledge in the form of revelation and inspiration – directly or indirectly – is in line with the circle and field of Shari’a and his propaganda scope; To the extent that some of those holy beings remained only “prophets” and some were sent to send divine messages to the people, they were referred to as “messengers”; And some of them are considered to be the owners and creators of the Shari’a, they formed the truth of “the first determination” and some of them, because they understood the scope of time and place and overcame all the perfections and spiritual characteristics in the world, their Shari’a included jinn and humans. They remained immortal. ** Indicators of the superiority of the Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him and his family, including;
- The Gospels of the Past Prophets: The Holy Qur’an says about the good news of Jesus (pbuh):
And when Jesus son of Mary said: O children of Israel! I am the Messenger of God to you, the one who confirms the book that was sent before me, and the bearer of good news to the Messenger who comes after me and whose name is “Ahmad” … ”
Ayatollah Javadi Amoli in the interpretation of the above verse says:“The good news is that the next prophet will bring something new to his nation or to others. If the Prophet Khatam had spoken at the level of the previous prophets … there was no opportunity for evangelism … because … Jesus Christ said to his people: “I … announce the coming of a prophet.” It can be said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is better than Jesus (PBUH) and the Qur’an is higher than the Bible.
- Bringing the heavenly book (Qur’an) and its supreme example: Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (as) says about the unique and high position of the Qur’an:
The value of learning science and science in Islam There are many verses and hadiths about science and scholars and scientists and the study of science and the reward of it, and some information will be provided for brief information about them.
Science and awareness are two wings that human beings can fly to infinity. The value of each human being is determined by how they are used. The more knowledge a person has, the more colorful his leadership role in life becomes.
From the beginning when man was created, he began to learn. God says: “And We taught Adam all the names” (Surat al-Baqara, 32)
Imam Ali (pbuh) in Nahj al-Balaghah, Wisdom 113 says: There is no honor and value like science.
In the Holy Quran and the narrations of the Infallibles (peace be upon them), there are beautiful words in the virtue of knowledge and learning science, some of which we mention here: In Surah Al-Imran, verse 18, he says:
God, who always advises justice, testifies that there is no god but He, and that angels and scientists (testify). It is possible for scientists to reach the level of understanding the monotheism of God and witnessing it, and this is enough to understand the virtue of science alone. Because science has such a pleasant fruit, God has said: Surah Al-Mujadala
God exalts those who believe and those who are given knowledge. God has shown the superiority of the universe in many positions and has specified this superiority in verses: Surah Zumr, verse 9.
Tell me, are those who know and those who do not know the same? The Qur’an encourages and enjoins learning science: Surah An-Nahl, verse 43.
So if you do not know, ask the informed. It has been narrated from the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that: When God wants good for someone, he makes him a profound scholar in religion;
It has also been narrated from him: The world is seventy degrees superior to the worshiper. [Mohajat, vol. 1, p. 18
In the honor and value of science, other narrations have been received from the Commander of the Faithful:
Imam Ali (AS) says:
Friendship is the most unbreakable bond, and knowledge is the highest honor.
(Baharalanwar, vol. 1, p. 183
Ali (AS) says; (Abdul Wahed bin Muhammad Amadi, Gharr al-Hakam).
People excel each other through knowledge and intellect, not through wealth and lineage.
Imam Ali in Baharalanvar, vol. 1, p. 185 says;
The difference between science and wealth
Kamil says: Amir al-mu’minin Ali ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him) took my hand and took me to the cemetery of Kufa. When we reached the desert, he sighed and said:
O Kamil bin Ziad! These hearts are like vessels, the best of which is a vessel that has more capacity and storage; So memorize and remember what I say to you; There are three groups of people: the divine scholars and the seekers of knowledge who walk in the path of salvation in pursuit of the education of the learned and the stupid fools who run after every sound, with every wind, they are not enlightened by the light of science and knowledge .
O Kamil! Science is better than wealth; Knowledge protects you, but you must be the guardian of your property; Wealth decreases with charity, but knowledge increases with charity; The masters of wealth disappear as soon as wealth decays (but the disciples of science are stable).
O Kamil bin Ziad! Knowledge is a ritual science with which punishment is given and it is presumed and necessary for all; by it, man obeys God’s command during his life and after death, a good name remains from him; science is ruling and the property of the condemned and defeated.
O Kamil! The wealthy are dead, while apparently in the ranks of the living, but the scientists are still alive to the world.
Nahj al-Balaghah Wisdom 147
Kamil Ibn Ziad Nakhai Kufi is considered a close friend of the Commander of the Faithful. The famous prayer of Kamil is also attributed to him. He was martyred by the pilgrims – God damn it. He had heard the news of his martyrdom before from Imam Ali (AS) and when he testified, he said to the pilgrims:
It is true that the Imam informed me of the murder of me by you.
Imam Sadiq (as) said: It is obligatory to seek knowledge.

The verses rely on science and knowledge in two places:
First, in the text of the example, understanding the similarity of idols to spider webs and idolaters to spiders themselves is subject to knowledge and awareness (لوْ کانُوا یَعْلَمُونَ).
And in response to the pagans’ objection to why God Almighty exemplifies weak and helpless animals such as mosquitoes and spiders,
It is stated in the Qur’an: Only scientists and scholars understand the cause.
The meaning of these two sentences is that the Holy Quran relies on science and knowledge everywhere and the main audience of the Quran is scholars, thinkers and thinkers, although this dear book is useful and usable for all human beings.
Therefore, the higher a person’s scientific capacity, the more he will benefit from the Qur’an.
Science and knowledge are so important in our religion that it is considered the supreme and ultimate goal of all virtues (Mizan al-Hikma, Chapter 2831, Hadith 13330) and as one of the deeds of the Night of Destiny – that night of prayer and its world and secret and need and repentance It is ordered. (Mesbah Al-Munir, page 395.)
The Prophet of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him:
The question is half the knowledge.
The Prophet of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him:
Knowledge is treasures and its keys are questions; So, God bless you, ask, for by doing so, four people will be rewarded: the questioner, the respondent, the listener, and the lover.

The Prophet of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him
Whoever seeks knowledge is like one who spends his day fasting and his night worshiping. If one learns a chapter of science, it is better for him than the mountain of Abu Qabis is gold and he spends it in the way of God.

The first verse revealed to the Prophet is about teaching and knowledge.
The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said: Seek knowledge, even if it is in China, because seeking knowledge is obligatory on every Muslim. (. Baharalanvar, Allameh Majlisi, vol. 1, p. 177 AH 55
It is enough to look at the narrations and verses related to the virtue of science and scholars over other people. In the virtue of science and the world, several verses and hadiths are mentioned. 1. Tell me, are those who know the same as those who do not know? Only the owners of the brain are mentioned (Surah Zumr, verse 9). In this verse, God Almighty addresses His Prophet that the ignorant and the world are not equal, and this is an obvious comparison between the conscious and the ignorant, and the wise and the ignorant. This sentence begins with a negative question and is one of the basic slogans of Islam and highlights the greatness of the authority of science and scholars over the ignorant. 2. God exalts the status of believers and scientists ... (Surat al-Mujadaleh, verse 11). In addition to the verses of the Qur'an, which use every opportunity to express this truth, there are interpretations in Islamic narrations that are not considered higher than the importance of science: A hadith from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) states: Life is of no use except for two people: a scientist whose ideas are implemented, and scholars who listen to a scientist. (Sufficient Principles, Volume 1, Chapter on the Adjective of Knowledge and Waste, Hadith 7). ۲. In some narrations, Amir al-Mu'minin Ali (AS) mentions science as the beacon of wisdom and life of Islam and the best honor. (Mizan al-Hikma, vol. 6, Article of Science - Nahj al-Balaghah, Wisdom 113).
And in the greatness of the rank and rank of the world, it is enough that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) says: The scholars are the lights of the earth and the successors of the prophets and the heirs of me and the prophets. It is narrated that all human perfection is achieved through division in religion and planning in economic life.
The importance and greatness of the position of science; It is to the extent that God commands His Prophet in the Qur’an: Say: Is he who is knowledgeable equal to he who is ignorant? (Zumar, verse 9). The Prophet of Islam, in the position of valuing knowledge, says: It is obligatory for every Muslim to learn. Indeed, God loves those who seek knowledge. ”(Sufficient Principles, vol.
The most important mission of religion is to create supernatural motivation among human beings and to direct the correct efforts to daily efforts, so that in addition to meeting the daily needs of life, to act purposefully and strive to achieve the purpose of existence. Therefore, in Islamic culture, all the knowledge needed for human life is important and it is recommended that people take the necessary amount and needs of society to learn it, and it has been interpreted as “obligatory sufficiency”.
But for all human beings in every scientific level, paying attention to the purpose and purpose of the world and believing in the origin and resurrection is considered necessary and “objectively obligatory” and the neglect of the majority of human society is unfortunate because even the experimental and engineering sciences Power can achieve that sacred goal and is not in conflict with daily life, so according to the Qur’an and hadiths, science is a means and not an end; It is the means that perfects man and makes him prosperous in this world and the hereafter.
It is worth mentioning that the value of any science is equal to the value of the subject of that science, and in this regard, the divine and religious sciences – according to its subject – are superior to other noble sciences; But this does not mean that other sciences are insignificant and worthless and not science.
In the general view of the Qur’an, any science that leads man to worldliness and puts him in the clutches of materialism and draws his understanding and consciousness to sleep and enjoyment, making his ultimate goal only the attainment of materialism, is nothing but misguidance and misguidance. .
In short, the science that has been emphasized and praised in the narrations and verses and is considered as the Ashraf of sciences is the science of theology because it is known that this science is superior to the other sciences and Ashraf and every science is as valuable as its known.
The Prophet, who himself has reached the stage of the “frame of the arches” and has not forgotten God for a moment in all stages of his life, shows the importance and sensitivity of the issue when he utters such words.
This means that man should always try to draw closer to God and the Lord of the universe, and this is possible only by gaining knowledge of God and His greatness and greatness. The way in which man equips himself with knowledge that leads him to his Lord, and this equipment and readiness not only pushes him forward but also protects him from deviations and temptations.
On the other hand, science and learning are not the limit and the end, and man should seek to learn from the cradle to the grave.
It is stated in a hadith of the Prophet (PBUH): “If a day passes over me and I do not learn knowledge that brings me closer to God, the sunrise of that day will not be blessed for me!”
In the words of the Commanders of the Faithful, Imam Ali (as) also emphasizes the importance of acquiring knowledge, and he says in a speech: “If anyone teaches me a word, he has made me his slave.”
Therefore, the Prophet and the infallible Imams knew well that the cause of misguidance and distance from God and getting caught in darkness is ignorance, because knowledge is like a light that acquaints man with reality and truth and puts him in the arms of God. He throws and causes his exaltation and movement towards God.
- In many narrations that have been narrated from Ahl al-Bayt (AS), many rewards, works and blessings have been stated for acquiring knowledge and acquiring knowledge. Consider a few narrations in this regard:
1- Whoever learns something and acts on it and teaches it to others, he is greatly remembered in the kingdom of heaven and it is said: This person learned, acted and taught for God.
Sea of Lights vol. 2 p. 27 Chapter 9
2- Angels forgive the seeker of knowledge and pray for him in heaven and on earth.
3- Anyone who wants to look at God freed from fire should look for knowledge.
Guidance of hearts to truths vol. 1 p. 164
3- Imam Baqir (AS) said: All the creatures of the earth and even the fish of the sea send greetings and blessings to the seeker of knowledge.
