Sayyed Nasrallah: We will Triumph in Our Battle against Takfiris

Sayyed Nasrallah: We will Triumph in Our Battle against Takfiris
 Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah made a televised speech Sunday on the Martyr Leaders' anniversary and tackled several local and regional developments, starting with the ongoing Israeli threats and plots. His eminence divided his speech into three parts, the first was about the Israeli enemy and the ongoing threat it poses on Lebanon, second was about Hezbollah's confrontations at the current phase, and third was about the resistance's challenges on several aspects. After saluting the souls of the martyred leaders, resistance martyrs, Army martyrs, and citizens who were killed in terrorist explosions recently, his eminence indicated that "we have reached a situation in which people don't want to tackle the Palestinian cause and the enemy," pointing out that "this is what America had sought." Sayyed Nasrallah stated that "the US Admin ...

Praise of God in Sahife Sajjadiya

Praise of God in Sahife Sajjadiya
Sahife Sajjadiya Containing constructive supplications with sublime spiritual contains handed down from Imam Sadjad the Fourth Shia Imam.  When he began to supplicate , he would begin praise and laudation of God saying : Praise belongs to God , the First , without a first before Him , the Last , without a last behind Him . Beholders' eyes fall short of seeing Him , describers' imaginations are not able to depict Him . He originated the creatures through His power with an origination , He devised them in accordance with His will with a devising . Then he made them walk on the path of His desire , He sent them out on the way of His love . They cannot keep back from that to which He has sent them forward , nor can they go forward to that from which He has kept them back . He assigned from His provision to each of their spirits a nourishment known and ...

Freedom: spiritual and social-2

Freedom: spiritual and social-2
 And removes from them their burden and the shackles which were upon them. (7:157) Last week I mentioned that our discussion consists of three parts: The meaning of freedom, the two kinds of freedom, namely social and spiritual freedom and the dependence of these two types of freedom upon one another, especially the dependence of social freedom on spiritual freedom. Tonight, I wish to devote myself to the subject of spiritual freedom, its meaning and its necessity for mankind. This is particularly urgent since today little attention seems to be paid to spiritual freedom by human societies, which is the cause of many present troubles. This is so evident that many people consider spiritual freedom as something abolished, even though the need for it is much greater than in the past. What does spiritual freedom mean? Freedom requires two sides so that one s ...

Freedom: spiritual and social-1

Freedom: spiritual and social-1
The subject of our discussion is spiritual freedom. The points that I wish to submit to this gathering tonight are as follows: Firstly, the nature of freedom; secondly, how many kinds of freedom there are though I confine myself to two types here, namely, spiritual freedom and social freedom and thirdly, the relationship between these two types of freedom and the extent to which spiritual freedom is possible without social freedom and vice versa. The discussion will mainly be centered round the last point, namely, the connection between the two types of freedom. I begin my discourse with a point which is relevant to this occasion, the birthday anniversary of Hadrat Ali, the Master (mawla) of the virtuous, peace be upon him. One of the words we often use in connection with his personality is the word master and master of the virtuous and master of the mast ...

The Similarities of Christianity and Islam

The Similarities of Christianity and Islam
Jesus is one of the greatest persons ever to have walked the earth. Two world faiths hold him in high regard. Islam holds him to be God’s Messiah, Prophet, and Righteous Servant. Christianity holds him to be all of the above and even more. Some Christians believe that Jesus is God the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. Some believe that he is the Son of God. Some take this title to mean the Divine Son of God. Others think that ‘Son of God’ is a title that can refer to a person who is especially favoured by God; and that it refers to Jesus more so because he was favoured by God to a remarkable degree. Hence belief in Jesus is an element of faith that is common to Christianity and Islam even though the two faiths believe in him differently. Both faiths hold Jesus in high esteem. Muslims and Christians believe that Jesus entered the world in a miraculo ...

The strategies of Holy Prophet’s (s.w.a.) government

The strategies  of Holy Prophet’s (s.w.a.) government
The Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) was just and wise. If somebody studies the time the Prophet (s.w.a.) entered Medina – about the tribal conflicts, the attempts to attract the enemies from Mecca out into the desert, the repeated blows, the fight against the warring enemies – he will notice such wise, firm and comprehensive strategies that he will be astonished. The Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) was the person who enforced the laws, and he would not let anybody violate the laws. He himself was subject to the same laws, and Quranic verses clearly show this point. The Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) used to act according to the laws that other people had to observe, and he would not allow any violations of the laws. He would always keep his promise, and this was another characteristic of the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) as the leader of his society. He never broke a promise. Quraysh ...

The meaning of Allah in the Qur`an

The meaning of Allah in the Qur`an
Misguidance is a non-existent entity. Since guidance means to lead someone to a goal, then misguidance is the absence of guidance. In the parlance of the logicians, the relation between guidance and misguidance is privatives and positives (‘Adam wa malakah). In other words, if guidance were to exist in a certain place, then it is impossible for misguidance to exist there (from the same aspect); but if guidance were not there then the absence of guidance is misguidance. Because of this it is not possible to attribute misguidance to Allah (awj) since it is not possible to give or take something that does not exist. Unlike guidance, which relates both to existence and the law, misguidance relates only to existence and has no relation with the law. This is because Allah (awj) is essentially the Guide, since if this were not the case then the evildoers w ...

What is the meaning of the “beautiful patience”

What is the meaning of the “beautiful patience”
 “Beautiful Patience” meaning beautiful fortitude and that is continuous patience and endurance for the sake of Allah (SWT), without any despair or hopelessness and not mixed with any unrest or complaining. Beautiful patience is to stand against difficult trials and incidents of life. Such a resistance shows the personality and capacity of the soul of a human. Patience is a prominent character of all the messengers of God and was an effective element of their prophethood. Beautiful Patience is a patience that God’s messengers had when they confronted the enemies of the Almighty and at the times when their enemies called them magicians and liars as well as rejecting their glad tidings. But prophets of God did not complain and showed that believers are those who will not revolt when they reach the point of despair and will not utter words of ingratit ...
