Sayings of Imam Ali Raza (AS)

1.      Imam Ali Ar-Reza (A.S.) is also known as Imam-e- Zaamin (A.S.). Zaamin means ‘The Guarantor’. When Muslims go on journeys they take with them something called ‘Imam-e-Zaamin’ which is some money tied in a cloth. This tradition probably came from the time of Imam Reza (A.S.) when people used to carry money with them especially because it had Holy Imam's (A.S.) name on it. As Ma'mun, the Abbasid caliph the contemporary of Imam Reza (A.S.), had coins minted with the name of Imam Reza (A.S.) on them, it was very easy for the Muslims to carry the name of Holy Imam (A.S.) with them, especially when they went on journeys. One day when Imam Reza (A.S.) was on his historical journey from Madinah to Marw (Khurasan), while in a jungle the Holy Imam (A.S.) came across a hunter who was about to kill a deer. The deer was trying to get away and when she saw Holy Imam (A.S.), she said something to him. Holy Imam (A.S.) asked the hunter to free the deer so that she could go and feed her little baby deer that were very hungry. Imam Reza (A.S.) also told the hunter that once the deer had fed her babies she would come back. The hunter allowed the deer to go because Holy Imam (A.S.) had told him to, but he did not think the deer will come back. But Imam Reza (A.S.) waited with the hunter until the deer returned with her young ones. The hunter was amazed on witnessing this miraculous event and he set the deer free as a mark of respect for Imam Reza (A.S.). After this historical event Imam Reza (A.S.) became famous as Imam Zaamin (A.S.).

2.      Hazrat Imam Ali Raza a.s said , On the Day of Resurrection , I will save whoever has made a pilgrimage to me , at three levels [at the scale mizan], at the bridge [sirat] , & when he is given the record of his deeds .( & came for help in grave).

3.      *Imam Ar-Raza (peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The followers and Shia of each Imam are involved in a pledge that they should fulfill for him. The pilgrimage to the Imam’s shrine is a sign of the perfection of fulfilling that pledge. Hence, the Imam, on the Day of Resurrection, will intercede to him who visits his shrine out of desire and credence to the Imam.” [Bihar-ul-Anwar; vol. 22, page 6 (as quoted from Oyounu Akhbar ir-Riza, Ilal-ush-Sharaayi, and Ibn Qolawayh’s Kamil-uz-Ziyara)]

4.      The one for whom the day of A'shura is a day of tragedy, grief and weeping, Allah The Mighty, The Glorious, shall make the Day of Judgment, a day of joy and happiness for him.

21.  If you desire that for you be the reward equivalent to that of those martyred along with Husain (A.S.), then whenever you remember him say: 'Oh! Would that I had been with them! A great achievement would I have achieved'.

  22. Then he (PBUH) said, "The tenth one and what is the tenth?" The person asked him(PBUH) what is that?" The Imam reflected:
  23. "He does not see a person but that he says, ‘He is better and more pious than myself.’"
  24. Allah may take pity and be merciful to the servant who resurrects and revives our affair.
  25. So I said, "How is it that your affair gets revived?"
  26. He responded, "By learning our knowledge and teaching it to the people."
  27. He who takes himself to account gets benefited and the one who gets negligent and careless about himself bears loss.

101.                      Ja`bir b. Yazďd al-Ju'fi has narrated, saying: [I heard the testamentary trustee of the testamentary trustees and inheritor of the knowledge of the prophets, Abu` Ja'far Mohammed b. 'Ali b. al-Husayn b. 'Ali b. Abu` Ta`lib, peace be on him, say: The master of the worshippers 'Ali b. al-Husayn related to me on the authority of the master of martyrs al-Husayn b. 'Ali on the authority of the master of the testamentary trustees, the Commander of the faithful 'Ali b. Abu` Ta`lib, peace be on him, who said: Allah's Messenger, may Allah bless him and his family, said: "A piece of me will be buried in the land of Khurasa`n. If a distressed person visits it, Allah will remove his distress; if a sinful one (visits it), Allah will forgive him his sins. (Uyun Akbar al-Reza, vol. 2, p. 258).

  1. Mohammed b. 'Amma`ra has narrated on the authority of his father, on the authority of Imam al-Sadiq, peace be on him, on the authority of his fore-fathers, on the authority of Imam (Ali), the Commander of the faithful, peace be on him, who said: Allah's Messenger, may Allah bless him and his family, said: " A piece of me will be buried in the land of Khurasan. If a believer visits it, Allah, the Great and Almighty, will make the Paradise obligatory to him, and his body will be prevented from (touching) the Fire. (Uyun Akbar al-Reza, vol. 2, p.255).
  2. Al-Hasan b. 'Ali al-Washsha`' has narrated, saying: Abu` al-Hasan al-Reza, peace be on him, said: "I will unjustly be killed by poison. So he who visits me out of knowledge of my right, Allah will forgive him his past sins and those to follow. ('Uyun Akbar al-Reza, vol. 2, p. 261).
  3. Sulayma`n b. Hafs al-Marwazi has narrated, saying: I heard Abu` al-Hasan Mu`sa` b. Ja'far, peace be on him, say: "Surely my son 'Ali will unjustly be killed by poison and buried at Tu`s. He who visits him is like him who visits Allah's Messenger, may Allah bless him and his family. (Uyun Akbar al-Reza, vol. 2, p.260).
  4. Al-Saqr b. Dalaf has narrated, saying: I heard my master 'Ali b. Mohammed b. 'Ali al-Reza`, peace be on him, say: He who has a need with Allah must wash his body, visit the grave of my grandfather al-Reza`, peace be on him, at Tu`s, perform two rak'as by his head, and ask Allah for his need during his personal prayers (qunu`t), for surely He will respond to him, unless he asks (Him) regarding a sin and cutting the bonds of blood relatives; his (al-Reza`'s) place is one of the places of the Paradise. If a believer visits it, Allah will release him from the Fire and make him stay in the Abode of Stability. (Uyun Akhbar al-Reza, vol. 2, p. 262).

106.                      Imam Reza (A.S.) said: He who sits in a gathering in which our affairs (and our path and aims) are discussed and revived, his heart shall not die on the day (Day of Judgment) when hearts shall die (of fear).

107.                      Those who weep should weep over the likes of Husain (A.S.) for surely, weeping over him does away with one's great sins.

108.                      For seeking well-being and thanking for it: He said that once `Ali b. al-Husayn (a) saw a person doing tawaaf of al-Ka`bah and saying: O God I ask from You the patience (as-Sabr). The Imam stroked his shoulder and said: you have asked for affliction (balaa'), [Instead] say: Allaahumma innee as-alukal-`aafiyah, wash-shukra `alal-`aafiyah. O Allah I ask from You the well-being, and to be grateful for the well-being.

  1. For seeking richness: From Imam Ar-Reza (a) on the authority of his forefathers who said that the Prophet (s) said: He who says every day 100 times [the following] will attract richness through it and drive away poverty: Laa ilaaha il’lal-laahul-malikul-Haqqul-mubeen (There is no god, except Allah, the Ruler, the Real, the Manifest)
  2. Cure from all sorts of pain: Khalid b. al-`Absee has narrated that: `Ali b. Moosa (a) taught me the following instructing me to teach fellow believers for it works with all sort of pains and aches. U`idhoo nafsee bi’rabbil-ardhi wa rabbis-samaa' U`idhoo nafsee billadhee laa yadhurru ma`a-smihi daa' U`idhoo nafsee billadhee-smuhu barakatun washifaa' I seek protection for my soul in the Lord of the earth and the Lord of the heavens I seek protection for my soul in the One in whose name no sickness can hurt I seek protection for my soul in the One whose name is Blessed and a Cure.

111.                      O' Son of Shabib! Should you weep for Husain (A.S.) in the measure that tears roll down your cheeks, Allah would forgive all the sins committed by you, whether they be the great sins or the small sins and whether they be meagre or immense.

112.                      Imam Reza (A.S.) said (to Ibn Shabib): O' Son of Shabib! If it makes you happy (and you desire) to be with us in the elevated ranks of paradise, then be sad in our grief and happy at our happiness.

113.                      One who refrains from seeking his (worldly) desires on the day of Ashura, Allah shall grant him his desires of this world and the hereafter..

114.                      Imam Reza (A.S.) said: My father, talked of his father, Imam Sadeq (A.S.), as saying that the Ghadir feast is much more famous in heaven than on Earth.

115.                      Whoever visits her (Qum) (does her ziyarat) acknowledging her right, is entitled to heaven.

116.                      In Kamil-al-ziyarah it is quoted from Imam Raza (a.s) Whoever does the ziyarat of Masooma in Qum it is as though he/she has done my ziyarat

117.                      Imam Reza (A.S.) said: "The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said:  "On the night of my ascension to Heaven, Gabriel took my hand and led me into Paradise, then he handed me dates from which 1 ate; those dates were formed into sperm. When I descended to Earth, I came unto Khadija who became pregnant with Fatima; thus, Fatima is a human huri, whom whenever I long for Paradise I smell."

  1. "Messenger of Allah (P.B.U.H.) said: `Whoever does not believe in my reservoir, may Allah not bring him to my reservoir, and whoever does not believe in my intercession, may Allah not extend to him my intercession.'
  2. Then he said: `Verily, my intercession is for those of my Ummah who shall have committed great sins; as for the good-doers, there shall be no difficulty for them.
  3. " Al-Hussain Ibn Khalid said: "I asked Al-Ridha (A.S.); `O son of the Messenger of Allah! What is then the meaning of the words of Allah, Mighty and Great is He: `and they do not intercede except for him whose religion Allah is pleased with, "'
  4. "When the resurrection comes, Allah, Great and Mighty is He, will manifest himself to His believer servant, and will remind him of his sins one by one; then Allah will forgive him; Allah will not let (even) a near angel or an apostle prophet know of his (sin), and will cover it least anyone becomes aware of it. Then He will say to his bad deeds `Be good deeds."
  5. Sheikh Saduq quotes Sulaiman ibn Ja'afar as saying: "I asked Imam Reza (AS). Will the earth ever be devoid of a sign of God?" The Imam replied: "Even if that were to happen for as long as the blinking of an eye, the earth would cave in with all its inhabitants."
  6. Imam Ali Riza (a.s.) has said that on the day of judgment four days will be presented before Allah (swt) with such glamour as that of a bride - Day of Friday, Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Azha and Eid-e-Ghadeer - and the day of Eid-e-Ghadeer will be the most most distinct and will be like a moon among stars.
  7. Aamal and prayers of Eid-e-Ghadeer , It is recommended to take bath early in the day for purification and the offer 2 rakaat prayer of Eid-e-Ghadeer before mid-day.
  8. In each Rakaat after Sura Hamd recite 10 times Sura Ahad (Qul ho Allah ho Ahad), 10 times Sura Qadr (Inna anzalna ho fi lailat-il-Qadr) and 10 times Ayat al-Kursi.
  9. This prayer is highly rewarding and whatever dua is asked for from Allah(swt), inshallah, will be granted. It is recommended to recite this prayer closer to but before mid-day since that was the time when Prophet Mohammad (pbuh&hf) announced the successorship and nomination of Imam Ali (a.s.) as master of the faithfuls.
  10. After the prayers go into prostration and recite 100 times "Shukran Lillah" and 100 times " Alhamd-o-lillah". Imam Jaffer Sadiq (a.s.) says that whoever does so will be like a person who accepted the Imamate and Caliphate of Imam Ali (a.s.) and pledged allegiance at the Ghadeer-e-Khum in front of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf).
  11. The person who performs this act will also like those who will be with the Imam-e-Zamana(a.s.) under his flag. It is highly recommended to recite the Ziarat of Imam Ali (a.s.) both in the night of Eid-e-Ghadeer (the night before the day of Eid-e-Ghadeer) and the day of Eid-e-Ghadeer.
  12. It is customary among the followers of Ahl-e-Bait(a.s.) to greet each other on this day and shake their hands and say to each other the following : "Akhaituka fil lah-e wa safetoka fil lah-e wa safahtoka fil lah-e wa aahad tullah-a wa malaekatahu wa kutubahu wa rusulahu wa ambiya-uhu wa aaimmatul ma'soomeena alaihumus salam ala anni in kuntu min ahlil jannati wash shafa'ate wa oozina lee be an adkhulal jannah la adkhulaha illa wa anta ma ee aa".
  13. The other momin/momina should also greet him/her saying: "Asqat tu anka jame'ah haqooq-il ukhuwate ma khalad dua-e waz ziarat-e wash shafa-ah"
  14. "The pure religion of Muhammad (S.A.) will not be abrogated till the Day of Resurrection, and also no Prophet will follow him."

132.                      Imam Redha and Imam Jawad (a.s) said:"We heard Ma moon narrating from Rashid, from Al-Mahdi, from Al-Mansoor, from his father, from his grandfather that Ibn Abbas said to Muawia:'Do you know wily Fatima was given that name?'

  1. "He said 'No.' Ibn Abbas said: 'Because she and her followers are protected from Hell, I heard Allah's Messenger say this."
  2. Imam Redha, quoting his Fathers (a.s) said: "The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: 'O Fatima, do you know why you have been given the name Fatima?'
  3. Ali (a.s) said: 'Why was she named (Fatima)?' He replied: 'Because she and her followers (Shiites) are protected from Hell."
  4. Imam Sadiq (a.s) said: "Do you know tile explanation of (the name) Fatima? I said: 'Inform me my Master.'He said: 'She is safeguarded from evil.'
  5. He then added: 'Hazrat Amir Al-Mu' mineen not married her, no man on earth from Adam on would have been suitable for her until the Day of Rising."
  6. "The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said to Ali: Do you know the reason Fatima was given that name?' Ali said: Why was she given hat name?'
  7. He said: 'Because she and her followers (Shiites) are safeguarded from the fire."
  8. Imam Redha (a.s) said that his father quoted Amir Al-Mo'mineen (a.s) as saying:"I heard Allah's Messenger say:
  9. 'Fatima was given that name because Allah has safeguarded her and her progeny from the Fire; those who meet Allah as monotheists and believers in what I preach."
  10. "The Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said to Ali:'Do you know the reason Fatima was given that name?'
  11. Ali said:'Why was she given hat name?'
  12. He said: 'Because she and her followers (Shiites) are safeguarded from the fire."
  13. Imam Redha (a.s) said that his father quoted Amir Al-Mo'mineen (a.s) as saying:"I heard Allah's Messenger say:
  14. 'Fatima was given that name because Allah has safeguarded her and her progeny from the Fire; those who meet Allah as monotheists and believers in what I preach."
  15. A dialogue between the Imam Ali Al-Ridha and Al-Ma-Moon (a prominent Abbaside caliph) went as follows:Al-Ma-Moon: "What is the evidence on the caliphate of your grandfather (Ali)?"
  16. The Imam Al-Ridha: The evidence is the word of God,"and ourselves and yourselves."
  17. The Imam meant that by bringing the Imam with him in the event of "Mubaha-lah,"
  18. The Messenger made him an extension of himself; and whoever is an extension of the personality of the Messenger would be the Imam of the Muslims. Al-Ma-Moon: This would be true if there is not "our women and your women."
  19. Al-Ma-Moon meant that it is possible that there were among the Muslims other men who were like Ali in being an extension of the personality of the Holy Prophet, but he did not want to bring all of them. He chose to bring one of them, Ali, as a representative of his equals. The evidence of this is the word "Our women," since this word includes all women who are related to the Holy Prophet by birth or marriage. But the Messenger brought only one of them, Fatima, who is related to him by birth as a representative of the women who are related to him.
  20. The Imam Al-Ridah: This would be true, if there were not the words:
  21. "And our sons and your sons." He meant that Fatima was brought as the unequaled woman rather than a representative of her equals in the family of the Prophet. Had other women been equal to Fatima, the Holy Prophet would have brought them with her.
  22. For he brought Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein together, because they were equal to each other, and did not bring one of them as a representative of his sons.
  23. Therefore, presenting Ali on this occasion is an evidence that Ali is the only one whom the
    Prophet considered to be an extension of his personality. It is reported that Amr Ibn Al-Auss asked the Prophet:
  24. "Who is the most beloved to you from men?" The Messenger said: Abu Bakr. Then he asked him: "Who is next? "And the Messenger said: Omar. Ibn Al-Auss said: "Then where is the place of Ali?" The Prophet turned his face to the people around him, saying: "This man is asking about
    the self."
  25. The Imâm Rezâ says that Mohammed gave orders at the battle of Badr that none of the Benee Abdulmutalib should be slain or taken prisoners, because they were brought thither by compulsion. Seventy of the enemy were taken prisoners. Nine Musulmâns were martyred, but none were taken prisoners.
  26. Imam Raza (a.s.) said that his father quoted Amir Al-Mo'mineen (A.S.) as saying:  "I heard Allah's Messenger say:  'Fatima was given that name because Allah has safeguarded her and her progeny from the Fire; those who meet Allah as monotheists and believers in what 1 preach. "

159.                      The best and most respected virtue of a man is to do good and to fulfill the desires of the needy.

160.                      Silence is one of the gates to wisdom.

161.                      God extends His mercy upon those who learn our knowledge and pass their learning to others. For if people know about our sayings they would act on them.

162.                      Patience is a gateway to Knowledge and Wisdom.

163.                      Never become angry with others and do not ask anything from them. Wish for the people whatever you wish for yourself.

164.                      “The affliction of a believer who succeeds in Dua will be soon removed whereas the affliction of a believer who stops Dua will last long. Therefore whenever an affliction befalls you, supplicate to God.”

165.                      Ibrahim Ibne Abi Mahmood says I said to Imam Reza (AS): people say: The Holy Prophet (SAW) has said: God comes to the sky of the world every night. What is your opinion of it? He said:
 “May God curse those who distort the words of others. By God! The Holy Prophet (SAW) did not day it, rather he said: In the last third of every night and on Friday night, from its beginning, God sends an angel to the sky of this world calling:
-Is there anyone who calls upon Me so that I will grant his request?
-Is there anyone who repents so that I will accept his repentence?
-Is there anyone asking forgiveness so that I will forgive him?
-O seeker of good! come to Me and O seeker of evil! stop it. God keeps on calling until dawn. At this time that angel returns to his place in the heavens. This was polyquoted by my father, his father and the Holy Prophet (SAW).”

166.                      Prudence keeps repentance away.

167.                      Nothing is more worthy than good temper.

168.                      To be in the company of villains will result in suspecting the good.

169.                      Imam Reza (A.S.) said: My father, talked of his father, Imam Sadeq (A.S.), as saying that the Ghadir feast is much more famous in heaven than on Earth.

170.                      The highest degree of wisdom is self-cognition.

171.                      Doing seven things without doing the seven other things is self-mockery:  asking for forgiveness from Allah verbally without repenting with the heart; asking for Allah's help without undertaking any effort; making a firm

  1. Imam Musa Ibn Jaafar (a.s), mentioned by Bihar Majlisi on the authority of Oyun Akhbar A1-Redha, Haroun said to the Imam: Khadija (a.s) said:"... Then, when (Fatima's) delivery came ii ear, I sent for the Quraishan midwives who refused to help me because of Muhammad (p.b.u.h) During childbirth, four ladies whose beauty and brilliance were indescribable entered the house. One of them said: 'I am your Mother Eve.' The second said: 'I am Um Kulthum, Musa's sister.' The third said: I am Mariam, and we have come to help you." Here is the same narration but in a different manner:
  2. "When Khadija was about to deliver, she sent for the Quraishan women to help her give birth to her child. They refused and said: 'We will not help you; for you became Muhammad's wife.' In the meantime, four women entered the house; their beauty and brilliance can not be described. One of them said: 'I am your Mother Eve.' The second said: I am Asyia Bint Muzahim.' The third said: 'I am Kulthum, Musa's sister.' The fourth said: I am Mariam Bint Imran, (Isa's mother). We have come to deliver your child."Fatima was then born. When Fatima fell on the ground, she was in a prostrating position, raising her finger."

  1. Once Hazrat told a person as such: 'o abdulla! be satisfied with what Allah wishes and be prepared for that which is inevitable for you to occur. then on the third day abdulla died.
  2. This incident has been narrated by hakem. also, he narrates from muhammad-ibn-isa who narrates from abu habib who said: i saw in my dreams that i had visited the holy prophet and greeted him. at that very moment, i saw a tray of saihani dates next to him and he offered eighteen of those dates to me. then i woke up and interpreted my dream in this manner that i would live for another eighteen days. however, after the twentieth day,
  3. Abul-Hassan Ali ar-Raza arrived from medina and came to the same mosque where i had seen the holy prophet in my dream. people hastened towards him in order to offer their greetings. i too went close to him and saw him sitting in the very place which the holy prophet had sat and besides him was kept a tray of saihani dates,
  4. The same tray of dates which i had seen in my dream. later, i greeted him and he called me close to himself and offered me a handful of those dates. when i counted them, i realized that they were exactly the same number of dates the holy prophet had offered me in my dream. i asked for more but he said: if the holy prophet had offered you more than this amount, i too would offer you more.
  5. When Hazrat arrived in naishabour he was mounted on a mule and on top of the mule-litter was a cover which was not visible from behind. then two persons from the experts of traditions, i.e. abu zarra raazi and muhammad-ibn-aslam tusi went in his presence along with a large number of scholars. they asked Hazrat to disclose his blessed face and narrate for them traditions which he had received from his fore-fathers. then, as per his commands the mule-litter came to a stand-still and his slaves drew back the curtain. when the people's eyes fell on his blessed face they began to rejoice. a group was jubilating while another group was crying out of excessive happiness. yet others threw themselves on the ground and those who were near were seen kissing the hooves of his mule. then the scholars cried out:
  6. 'O people, be quiet and listen to what hazrat says'. when the people prepared themselves to listen, Hazrat started to deliver this tradition and as the crowd was great in number those too i.e. abu zarra and muhammad-ibn-aslam were calling out hazrat's message to the people. later,
  7. Hazrat said: 'my father musa kazim narrated to me from his father Jafer sadeq who narrated from his father Muhammad baqir who narrated from his father Zain-ul-abedeen who narrated from his father Hussein who narrated from his father Ali-ibn-abi talib (may allah be satisfied with him) who said: my dear and beloved Messenger of Allah (s.a.w a.) said: Gibra'eel (Gabriel) told me as such:- i heard the exalted lord saying: the words of:
  8. Is my castle. so anyone who recites it shall enter my castle and the one who enters my castle will be saved from my chastisement.thereafter, he removed the cover from the mule-litter and moved ahead. about twenty-thousand writers have narrated this tradition.
  9. In another tradition it has come that hazrat said: 'faith' is recognition by the heart, confession by the tongue and action by the limbs. perhaps he said both of them. ahmad says: 'if this tradition which is having a chain of transmitters is read for an insane person he shall be cured of his madness.'

240.                      95 hadith on: "Mahdi is the fourth descendant of Imam 'Ali Razas.

241.                      The honest man has not betrayed you, but you consider the betrayer as the honest one.

242.                      "My father Musa Al-Kadhim narrated to me from his father Ja'fer As-Sadiq from his father Mohammed Al-Baqir from his father Ali Zaynul Abedeen from his father , the martyr of Kerbala from his father Ali ibn Abu Talib saying :

243.                      "My loved one, and the pleasure of my eyes, the Messenger of God (S.A.W.) told me once, that Jibrail told him from the Lord

244.                      "The kalima of LA ILAHA ILLALLAH is my fort; whoever said it would enter my fort; and whoever entered my fort was safe from my punishment".

245.                      Those who wrote down the hadith numbered twenty thousand. People started reciting the Kalima when Imam put his hand up and continued: "Yes, the kalima is Allah's fort.

246.                      It will provide you with excellent safety but on one condition only and that is that you obey and follow us - the holy Imams in the progeny of the holy Prophet (S.A.W.).

247.                      On reaching Marw Mamun forced Imam to accept the heir apparency (To be the leader after him). Imam accepted unwillingly.

248.                      That is to say, the emergence of imam and his leadership is a certainty. he shall rise in the name of Allah and will be a blessing. he shall separate the truth from falsehood and recompense as per good and evil actions. Hazrat cried bitterly and then said:

249.                      'O Gabriel, the holy spirit has spoken through your tongue. do you know who this imam is? i replied: no, i do not know him. but, i have heard that an imam shall emerge from your household, the one who shall fill the earth with equity and justice.

250.                      Hazrat said: the imam after me shall be my son muhammad and after muhammad will be his son ali and after ali will be his son hassan and after hassan will be his son hujjat al-qaem and he is the awaited one.
