On 25th Shawwal Imam Sadiq (as) departed from the World.
We pay our tribute and remember his Life, Times and the Treasure he has left for humanity

Brought up by his father, the ‘Splitter of Knowledge of the First to the Last’, Imam Muhammad ibne Ali al-Baqir, the 6th Imam was blessed with being able to acquire knowledge directly from the never-ending spring of the ‘Divine’ through his father.

According to the narration of Shaykh Abbas al-Qummi in his masterpiece, Muntahal al-Amaal, as-Sadiq had no less than 4,000 scholars from the various Muslim sects studying under him while in Madinah. What we have in our hands today is perhaps less than one-tenth of what he conveyed to those around him!

His Timeless Treasure

  • The person moving to help his Momin brothers is like the person who is walking between Safa and Marwa.
  • He who treats people kindly will be accepted as arbiter.
  • To recognize the actuality of your friend, you should enrage him (i.e.try him). If he still keeps up his friendship, then he is a true friend.
  • Islam is a definite rank. Faith is one rank higher than Islam. Conviction is one rank higher than faith.
  • To remove a mountain is easier than removing faith.
  • The desire for the worldly pleasures causes grief and sadness.
  • Abstinence from the worldly pleasures brings about the rest of both heart and body.
  • He who mistreats people should not complain when people mistreat him.
  • A Muslim always has three characteristics:
    1. Knowledge about the religion
    2. Good management of life
    3. Perseverance in the faces of calamities.
  • Enjoining good and forbidding evil should be practiced with a faithful believer that he would learn a lesson.
  • Enjoining good and forbidding evil become surely worthless when they are applied to the powerful tyrants.
  • As some people showed ingratitude for Allah’s graces, He changed the graces into crises.
  • As other people showed steadfastness against the misfortunes that inflicted them, Allah changed the misfortunes into graces.
  • Thank him who did you favour, and confer favour upon him who thanked you.
  • Thanks increase the graces and saves against poverty.
