Jihad Without Consent of an Imamasws is a Disbelief
A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad, who from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn abu Nasr from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah and Muhammad ibn Yahya from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf from Safwan ibn Yahya from Abd Allah ibn al-Mughirah who has said:
‘Once Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah said to al-Reza when I was listening: ‘My father has narrated from the people of his family from their ancestors that he said to a certain one of them (ancestors), ‘In our location there is a place called Qazwin for keeping guard against the enemy called al-Daylam. Is Jihad or Ribat (guarding) obligatory? He (the person of our ancestors) said, ‘You must not miss performing al-Hajj around the House,’ He repeated a Hadith, he had just said and the answer was again: ‘You must pay attention to this House to perform al-Hajj around it. Do you not agree that one of you stays home to spend on his family of his gains and wait for our cause to materialise? If he finds himself in such a day he is considered like those who were present with the Prophet on the day of Badr. If he dies, while waiting for our cause to materialise, he is considered like one standing with the one from us, who will rise with Divine authority, in his tent like this – ‘holding this two index fingers together- saying, ‘I do not say like this’-holding his index and middle fingers together - ‘because this one is taller than this.’ Abu alHassan al-Reza then said, ‘He had spoken the truth.

[Picthal 7:172]: And (remember) when thy Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their reins, their seed, and made them testify of themselves, (saying): Am I not your Lord? They said: Yea, verily. We testify. (That was) lest ye should say at the Day of Resurrection: Lo! of this we were unaware; (172)
[Shakir 7:172]: And when your Lord brought forth from the children of Adam, from their backs, their descendants, and made them bear witness against their own souls: Am I not your Lord? They said: Yes! we bear witness. Lest you should say on the day of resurrection: Surely we were heedless of this.
[Yusuf Ali 7:172]: When thy Lord drew forth from the Children of Adam― from their loins― their descendants, and made them testify concerning themselves, (saying): “Am I not your Lord (who cherishes and sustains you)?”― They said: “Yea! we do testify!” (This), lest ye should say on the Day of Judgment: “of this we were never mindful.” (172)

Hazrat Jabar narrates from Imam Muhammed Baqir (as) -he (Jabar asked)-
When was Amir al mumineen called Amir al momineen? He replied:
"That Allah made him as referred in this Ayat a compact which was made with the children of Adam that Allah is their Lord and Muhammed their Prophet and Ali the Amir al- momineen.”
مَن جَآءَ بِٱلۡحَسَنَةِ فَلَهُ ۥ خَيۡرٌ۬ مِّنۡہَا وَهُم مِّن فَزَعٍ۬ يَوۡمَٮِٕذٍ ءَامِنُونَ (٨٩

The Imam’s Displeasure
Little did people know, that the bible actually mentions Muhammed, by his name: Muhammed… The Bible says: Hicko Mamitaqim We Qulo Muhammadim, Zahdudey we zayra-ee, Bayna Jaruselam…
Im… Stands for the plural of respect, Muhammed-im… Muhammed, the all respected one…
The Bible in its very first verses says: Ello-im or Ill-im… Meaning, all respect for God, whom created the seven heavens, skies and the seas…
Surprisingly, the bible published these days translates the name of Muhammed, writing, the praised one whom deserves all respect. Now we know, that the praised one is certainly Muhammed, but how would others know, that the Song of Solomon, authenticated by even Shia Scholars, is directed upon the master of all the Prophets?
Yes! Indeed, this very piece of text, is 100% authentic, true and pure from the word of God, this piece hasn’t been tampered, yet!
(Song of Solomon, Chapter 5 verse 16)
Materials Which are not Permitted to be Worn:
Allama Majlisi; Book Tehzeeb-ul-Islam, second blessing
Men are not permitted to use pure silk and brocade and are asked to be
careful that their headgear and all those clothings which do not cover the
private parts should not be made of silk. Even certain accessories of
clothing, like borders, frills etc, should only be made of artificial silk, cotton
or any cloth, where silk is one tenth of the other yarn used in the material.
Cloth made of any yarn except silk is preferable.
parts of clothing like handkerchief, shawl etc. can be made of silk.
It is better for children who have not come of age, to be stopped from
wearing pure silk and gold; as according to the tradition of the Holy
Prophet (s.a.w.a.) as narrated by Imam Ali (a.s.), the Prophet had asked
Ali (a.s.) not to wear a golden ring and silk as he would be dressed in silk
in paradise and decorated with gold. Though Ali (a.s.) never used to
wear these but it was an indirect address to the people. Some persons
had asked Imam Ja’far-e-Sadiq (a.s.) whether they could dress their children
in gold. The Imam (a.s.) ordered them to refrain from using gold
themselves and dressing their children (not having come of age) in gold;
only their women and (female) slaves could use it.
The most hopeful ayah in the book of Allah
Tafsir al-Ayyashi, by Muhammad b. Mas’ud al-Ayyashi, from Abu Hamza Thumali, vol 2, p.161
Once, Amir al-Mu’mineen Imam Ali (a) was sitting with some people and he asked them,"Which verse from the book of Allah gives you the most hope?"
Some of the people quoted:
إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَغْفِرُ أَن يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَن يَشَاء وَمَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللّهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَى إِثْمًا عَظِيمًا
"Allah does not forgive shirk but he grants forgiveness for all but that (sin) to whomever he pleases" (Surat al-Nisa). He (a) said, "That is good but it is not the one." [4:48]
Then others among them quoted,
قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَى أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ
"Say, O’ My servants who have committed excesses against themselves! Do not despair of the mercy of Allah! Surely Allah forgives all sins…" (Surat al-Zumur). He (a) said, "That is good but it is not the one." [39:53]
Then others said that it is the aya:
وَمَن يَعْمَلْ سُوءًا أَوْ يَظْلِمْ نَفْسَهُ ثُمَّ يَسْتَغْفِرِ اللّهَ يَجِدِ اللّهَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا
"Whoever does an evil deed or is unjust to himself and then does istighfaar will find Allah to be Forgiving and Merciful" (Surat al-Nisa). He (a) said, "That is good but it is not the one." [4:110]
Others said it is the aya:
وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُواْ فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُواْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُواْ اللّهَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ لِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَمَن يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَلَمْ يُصِرُّواْ عَلَى مَا فَعَلُواْ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ
"(The pious are) those who, when they commit an evil act or are unjust to themselves, do dhikr of Allah and istighfaar for their sins. And who can forgive [literally: cover the stain of] sins except Allah?…" (Surat Aal-i-Imran)but the Imam (a) again said, “That is good but it is not the one.” [3:135]
The people then fell silent and the Imam (a) asked them, "What else, O’ assembly of Muslims?" They said, "Wallaah, we have nothing else to say."
He (a) said, I heard my beloved, the Messenger of Allah, say: The most hopeful ayat in the book of Allah is
وَأَقِمِ الصَّلاَةَ طَرَفَيِ النَّهَارِ وَزُلَفًا مِّنَ اللَّيْلِ إِنَّ الْحَسَنَاتِ يُذْهِبْنَ السَّـيِّئَاتِ ذَلِكَ ذِكْرَى لِلذَّاكِرِينَ
"And establish the prayers (wa aqim al-salaata) at two parts of the day and in the first part of the night. Indeed good acts wipe away evil deeds. This is but a reminder to those who are mindful" (Surat Hud, verse 114).
- Imam Ali (as): O' Abu Bakr. Have you read the book of Allah (swt)?
- Abu Bakr: Yes.
- Imam Ali (as): The verse " God desires to keep only the uncleanness away from you O'People of the Family and purifies you a thorough purification" has been send down in our praise or in the praise of others?
- Abu Bakr: Yes, in Your praise.
- Imam Ali (as): If a witness, witnesses against Sayyeda Fatima (sa) regarding a bad thing, what will you do in that case?
- Abu Bakr: I will apply the Islamic limitations on her just like its done for other muslim women.
- Imam Ali (as): In that case you will be among the Kafir in the sight of Allah( swt).
- Abu Bakr: No.
- Imam Ali (as): Because in this case you rejected the declaration of Allah (swt) regarding the Purity of Sayyeda Fatima(sa) , accepting the declaration of the common people which is like rejecting the order of Allah (swt) and order of Messenger of Allah (saww).
