In Honor of
This book is written in the honor of Hz Aun (as) and Hz Muhammad (as) ibn Abdullah ibn Hz Jafar Tayyar (as). While helping Imam (as), They were such a perfect example for our youth not only of today but from now until the day of judgment. It is Their example our youth will follow after the reappearance of Imam Zamana (ajf). When Imam (as) will announce the call for assistance, our children will also say “Labaik” to Imam (ajf) the same way as the elders will.

Dedication
I dedicate this book to my beloved niece, Hinnah Ali, who is eagerly awaiting the publication of this book.

Kalima

I testify there is no god other than Allah. He is unique in His oneness. I testify Muhammad (saw) is the slave and messenger of Allah. I testify Moula Ali (as) is the master of all momineen, imam of all muttaqeen, and wali of Allah, successor of RasoolAllah (saw), and there is no separation between Them.

Ya Ali (as) Madad

So our children do not become accused, it is necessary for us to remove this misconception. When momineen meet each other, they say “Ya Ali (as) Madad”. The other momin will reply “Peer Moula Ali (as) Madad”. Munafiqeen intensely hate this. They say we have changed the way of greeting in Islam. I advise the youth whenever anyone objects to this to tell them “assalamu alaikum” and “Ya Ali (as) Madad” are not two different things. They are the same. In other words, “Ya Ali (as) Madad” is an easy translation of “Assalamu Alaikum”. The only difference is while others say it silently, we say it openly. For this reason, munafiqeen become jealous. We should remember ‘salam’ is the name of Allah. A vast majority of Muslims recite “Ya Salam” on a regular basis. My Moula Ali (as) is the name of Allah. The meaning of “Assalamu Alaikum” is may you be in the protection of Moula Ali (as). People hate to hear the name of my Moula (as). This is why they hate hearing “Ya Ali (as) Madad”. They should



always remember protection comes through Moula Ali (as) who is the helper of all creation.

Bismillah al Rahman al Raheem

Ya Ali (as) Madad

So far I have written books for elders, friends, adults, and women. Their encouragement always renews my energy and enthusiasm. This is the first time I am writing for the youth of my nation. It was a very difficult task, but my friends pressured me in such a way that I had to do as they wished. It is a very difficult task to teach children about. One must teach them in such a way they understand the true beliefs, but at the same time, they do not feel any burden upon their minds. I relied on my Moula (as) who is the helper of the whole universe. My real purpose is to make the youth become accustomed to thinking deeply upon the matters of religion. So when they become adults, they will have enough understanding of their religion that no one will be able to make them deviate from the true path. I have no doubt my Moula (as) will help me, and I will be successful in my purpose.

Basically it is the responsibility of parents to teach their children, but in these fast paced times, men are busy in their jobs and women are busy in the home. They do not have enough time to fulfill their most important responsibility. The result of this is they have left the teaching of their children up to the worldly schools and the maulvis (religious scholars). Now the maulvis have begun to teach the children a “shortened version” of beliefs, and the parents have no objections to this. When the child becomes older, the result of the education gained while under the tutelage of these maulvis becomes apparent. That is the time when the parents start to worry, but the time for teaching their children has passed. Children born in the houses of momineen sometimes disobey or even turn against Ahlul Bayt (as).


The parents are responsible for this. All of the parents must remember on the day of judgment Allah will ask them regarding their children.
In this situation I am forced to write such a book which tells the youth about the true beliefs. Once they fully understand, it will make their foundation strong. When they get older, they will continue their journey towards gaining knowledge and marifat (recognition).

10
This will keep them firmly on the right path, and also they will become the source of forgiveness for their parents. It is very important to tell them from birth that they are born only in the obedience of Masoomeen (as) not some mujtihid (scholar). If they want to find the solution to any issue, they will find it in the words of Masoomeen (as) not in the fatwas of so called scholars.

Namaz (Prayer)

Prayer is a way for recognizing one’s religion. In reality prayer is the most beautiful way to express one’s belief, but it should not be without marifat (recognition). He must understand not only what he is doing but why he is doing it. This is the basic mistake which every parent makes. They teach their children the method of prayer. Then they think they have fulfilled their duties, and their child has become a namazi (one who prays). This makes their children have a tendency towards blind following. If he has this tendency towards worshiping blindly, then throughout his life he will become more and more deviated from the right path. His relationship with his beliefs will become weaker and weaker. Until such a time will come, when he completely rebels against the beliefs he has been taught. He believes these apparent acts of worship will take him into the jannah (paradise). During this time, shaitan starts to teach him about these beliefs. He becomes a follower of shaitan. He becomes joyous because he feels he now has a guarantee of jannah because of his worship of Allah.

In reality he is worshiping shaitan.


11
A famous poet, Josh, said:

When someone reads namaz without marifat,

This is a deviation from shaitan

Look around yourself and see how many people have signs of sajda (prostrations) on their foreheads. They only talk about prayer and always keep themselves in wudhu (ablution), but you can see they are the fiercest enemies of Ahlul Bayt (as) in their words and actions. They consider the azadari of Imam Hussain (as) as if it was an ordinary everyday occurrence. They openly insult Ahlul Bayt (as). If you say one word against their so called scholars, there are some who will not hesitate in killing you.

This is a result of the wrong teachings they learned in childhood. They were taught the method of namaz (prayer), but no one explained to them what the true meaning of namaz is. This is why, in our book, we have divided the explanation of namaz into three parts.


  1. Order of Prayer

  2. Method of Prayer

  3. Description of Prayer

This book was written with intense sincerity and love. Please do not consider this book to be just an ordinary work. It is the duty of every momin to make sure this book is available in every Shia home. It is a necessity for every home and will save the upcoming generations from becoming astray.

The true beliefs of Shia religion

Who is Shia?

If someone claims to be a scientist but does not know what science is or if someone claims to be a cricketer but has no knowledge of cricket, then no one will accept either of them, as a scientist or cricketer. Likewise, if someone claims to be a Shia but has no knowledge of what a Shia is, then that person can never be a Shia. The whole world will consider him ignorant. It is compulsory on anyone who claims to be a Shia to be aware of the reality of the word “Shia”. It is compulsory for him to know the truth of the Shia religion, beliefs, methods of worship, and those things which not only include one in the Shia religion but also those things which will exclude one from the religion. In short a person cannot be a real Shia simply by labeling themselves as a Shia, or because they happened to be born in a Shia family. No one can be Shia unless they have full knowledge regarding the Shia religion.


There are two kinds of religion, religion by birth and religion by option. In religion by birth, the person has no choice. He is completely dependent upon the family in which he was born into.

14

This type of religion is totally worthless. This is only a label which is automatically placed upon him. It has no effect upon his personality. In our society, a vast majority of people belong to this type of religion. To Allah, their value is not more than the animals who wander here and there in the jungles. The true religion is religion by option. Whatever religion one selects, he must have solid proofs regarding his choice. This only becomes possible after he has studied the religion intensely and gained all of the knowledge regarding its tenets.



Description of Shia
If you look in the dictionary, you will find many different meanings of the word Shia. For example, follower, group, party, supporter, etc. So when the word Shia is spoken, immediately these questions come into the mind; Whose Shia? Whose follower? Whose group? Whose party? Whose supporters? Unless you find the answer to these questions, the word Shia has absolutely no value. In the time of Ameerul Momineen Hz Ali (as) ibn Abi Talib (as), there were two types of Shia. One was “Shiaian e Ali (as)” and the other was shiaian e muawiaya (la). Later the shiaian e muawiaya (la) changed their name, and only the Shiaian e Ali (as) remained. Because Shia are so beloved by Allah, He has made such an arrangement where the Shia and Ali (as) are associated with each other for eternity. So now the Shia is one who will be the Shia of Moula Ali (as). He cannot be Shia of anyone else.


15

This is a great blessing and kindness from Allah that even the shiaian e muawiya (la) do not like to call themselves ‘Shia’. Whenever the word Shia is spoken, it is meant only for the Shiaian e Ali (as). So we must understand if we call ourselves ‘Shia’, then we are only the Shia of Moula Ali (as). We are the group of Moula Ali (as). We are the party of Moula Ali (as). We are the supporters of Moula Ali (as). Alhamdulilah there is not one single part of our religion which is without Moula Ali (as). Whether it is the kalima, adhan, iqama, namaz (prayer), everywhere you will find Moula Ali (as). If someone excludes Moula Ali (as) from any part of the religion, then he will no longer be a Shia. He will become a munafiq (hypocrite). The meaning of being a Shia is to be associated with Moula Ali (as).We cannot disassociate ourselves from Moula Ali (as) even for the blink of an eye or even if we find ourselves in a loss.




Beliefs of Shia

Shia religion is based upon certain beliefs and ideologies. Anyone having these beliefs is a Shia even if he does not call himself ‘Shia’. One not having these beliefs can never be Shia even if he calls himself ‘Shia’. Allah, His Messenger, and Masoomeen (as) did not separate the beliefs and acts of Shia from each other. They are one and the same. Because beliefs are acts themselves. Acts are beliefs themselves. Because beliefs are exposed through one’s actions, and one’s actions exposes one’s beliefs.



16

Beliefs and actions cannot be separated from each other. The people themselves divided the Shia religion into two parts, usool e deen and furoo e deen.


Usool e Deen (Principles of Religion)

Asal means root. Its plural is usool. Usool means roots. So the meaning of usool e deen is ‘roots of religion’. According to the scholars, there are five usool e deen.1. Tawheed (oneness) 2. Adl (justice) 3. Nabuwiat (prophet hood) 4. Imamate 5. Qiyamat (Day of Judgment). We will discuss this later on in our book



Furoo e Deen

Fara means branch. Its plural is furoo. Furoo means branches. The meaning of furoo e deen is ‘branches of religion’. Because usool and furoo were established by non masooms, there is a dispute regarding this issue. In the beginning, there were six furoo e deen.


1. Namaz (prayer) 2. Sawm (fasting) 3. Hajj (pilgrimage) 4. Zakat (poor tax) 5. Khums 6. Jihad (struggle in the way of Allah), but later they included four more branches. 7. Tawalla (love of Ahlul Bayt as) 8. Tabarra (disassociation from the enemies of Ahlul Bayt as) 9. Amr bil maroof (enjoining the good) 10. Nahi anil munkir (forbidding the bad)

The people take the meanings of ‘amr bil maroof nahi anil munkir’ to be enjoining the good and forbidding the bad. Due to this explanation, there are many Islamic missionaries busy in this act. However, we will find its true meaning based solely upon the sayings of Masoomeen (as).



17

Someone asked Imam Jafar Sadiq (as), “Moula (as), who is ‘maroof’ which we must invite the people towards?” (Maroof means one who is recognized) Moula (as) replied, “This is one who is ‘maroof’ on the earth as well as in the heavens.” Then the person said, “Moula (as), please explain in detail.” Imam (as) replied,

Maroof is My Grandfather Ali (as) ibn Abi Talib (as), and munkir is His enemy.” So the real explanation of ‘amir bil maroof nahi anil munkir’ is to invite people towards the wilayat, imamate, and love of Moula Ali (as) and disassociate ourselves from the enemies of Moula Ali (as).

Love

We must know and remember the true root of the Shia religion, its spirit, purpose, destination, beginning, end, apparent, and hidden, is only one thing and that is love. In Usool e Kafi Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) says, “Religion is nothing except love and hate”. It means loving Ahlul Bayt (as) and being an enemy of Their enemies is the true religion. After delivering the whole religion, RasoolAllah (saw) asked for the reward of His prophecy to be the love of Ahlul Bayt (as). Quran says, “O’Prophet! Say I do not ask any reward from you except to love My Beloved Daughter Syeda Fatima Zahra (sa).”
