“Rajab is the month of Allah, Sha’ban is my month and Ramadhan is the month of my followers. Whoever keeps one fast during Rajab becomes entitled to the great pleasure of Allah, the wrath of Allah remains at bay from him and a gate of hell is closed for him.”
3rd of Rajab 1437AH is the Shahadat Anniversary of our 10th Holy Imam, Imam Ali An Naqi, Al Hadi, born in the year 212AH and attained Shahadat in the year 254AH. On this occasion of sadness & grief in the house of Prophet Muhammad(saww), we extend our condolences to the Prophet(pbuh), Imam-e-Zamana(as), the Ahl-e-Bait(as) and to all the Mu’mineen and Mu’minaat.
The blessed Imam was born on 1stRajab 57AH in Madina. His mother was Fatima, the daughter of Imam al-Hasan (A) and his father was Imam Ali bin Husain, Zain al-Abidin (A). He was unique amongst the Imams (A) in that both his paternal and maternal grandfathers were also Imams (A). He was present in Kerbala – he was only 4 years old, but remembered the events clearly. The insignia of his ring was “Al Izzatu Lillah” – All greatness/honour belongs to God.
