In recent days we have seen that there is less interest in Islamic studies among the Muslim youth. Meanwhile, Islam pays special attention to the Muslim youngster, as the next generation of perfect Islam. For this reason, Mulla Shadra Hasan Abu Ammar foundation is building the Imam Ja’far Shodiq Hawza Ilmiyah (religious school) which will provide Islamic religious lessons from the original books such as: Ilmu Kalam -Chab Hadi Asyar, Bidayatul Hikmah, Muslim Logic ( Mantiq Science), Sharaf-Nahwu, Isyraq Wisdom, Ilahiyat Syifa ‘, Muta’aliyah Wisdom, Akhlaq, Islamic History, Practical Jurisprudence, etc. Hawzah Ilmiyah is located in South Tangerang, Banten province, Indonesia.
For the first stage, Hawzah Imam Ja’far Shodiq will open a class with a 1-year curriculum, and inshaAllah, in the future it will add other classes and types of longer study duration. By building this Hauzah Ilmiyah, we intend to develop a correct understanding of Islam in accordance with the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad SAWW and his holy family, especially among the younger generation. We open donations for all parties – both individuals and organizations – who care about the future of Islam among young Muslims, as the next generation.
We knock on the hearts of Muslims who have excess funds and savings to set aside a portion of their fortune to help carry out this Hauzah Imam Ja’far Shodiq, to do good deeds whose rewards will not be cut off, even though we are already in the barzakh realm.
We pray that your alms can be the fulfillment of all your desires, a cure for all diseases and a solution to every problem you are facing. Through the rights of the Prophet Muhammad and his holy family, may we all be gathered together with pious people.

Jakarta, Mulla-shadra.com – On a sunny Sunday, March 8, 2020, the birthday of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as falling on the 13th Rajab 1441, Mulla Shadra Hasan Abu Ammar foundation and the Itrah Istittut Palu foundation has held the birth anniversary of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as.
The event was attended by sympathizers and activists of the foundation along with their family members and was enlivened by nasyids sung by Ogho Dedeng from Bandung. Nasyid longing for Imam Ali as it adds to the excitement of this great Wiladah of the son of Ka’bah event.
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib as was born in the city of Mecca al-Mukarramah on the 13th Rajab, the 30th year after the year of the elephant, or around 600 AD. In the Shi’ah view, he was the caliph directly after the Messenger of Allah Muhammad SAAW died on the basis of the word of Allah Ta’ala and the confirmation of the Messenger of Allah.
There are many verses of the Qur’an that describe the immorality and purity of all kinds of defilements and defamation. Based on Shia sources and some Ahlusunnah sources, there are approximately 300 verses that were revealed regarding their importance.
 When the Quraysh tribe wanted to kill the Prophet Muhammad, he was willing to sleep in the bed of the Messenger of Allah to fool the enemy so that the Messenger of Allah could secretly make the move.
 The Messenger of Allah binds the Promise of Brotherhood (Akad Ukhuwwah) with him (al-Hakim Naisyaburi, vol. 3, p. 14). He participated in all the wars of the Prophet Muhammad, except for the battle of Tabuk, that was on the orders of the Prophet PBUH to stay in Medina. Therefore, Imam Ali is the commander of Islam who has the most virtue and honor.
The first person to convert to Islam
Imam Ali (as) was the first man to believe in the Prophet PBUH. In accordance with some Shia history, the Prophet PBUH introduced Imam Ali as the first Muslim, the first believer and the first person to believe the Prophet PBUH. Syeikh Thusi quoted a narration from Imam Ridha who introduced Imam Ali as the first believer. to the Prophet of Islam.  Allamah Majlisi mentions the order of those who believe in the Prophet as follows: first Imam Ali, then Khadijah sa and then Jakfar bin Abi Talib.
According to some researchers, ijma Shia said that Imam Ali was the first man to convert to Islam. In addition, some Ahlusunnah historians such as Tabari, Dzahabi, and others also quoted a number of indications that show that Imam Ali was the first person to convert to Islam. At that time Imam Ali as – in the opinion of the famous – was 10 years old. However, in some literature, it is mentioned that Imam Ali was a believer at the age of 12 because he was 64 when he met his martyrdom.
Noble Morals from the Supreme Personality Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “He lived in extraordinary generosity and very modest circumstances. When he fasted, he gave his breaking fast food to orphans so that the verse,” And they gave food that he liked to the poor, orphans, and Mufasir said one time Ali as only had 4 dirhams and then he offered 1 Dirham at night, 1 other Dirham at noon, 1 Dirham with secret, and 1 Dirham again he offered openly.
Therefore it was a verse, “Those who give up their wealth at night and day in secret and openly, then they get a reward in the sight of his Lord. There is no concern for them and they are not sad. “(Surat al-Baqarah : 274) came down in connection with this event. They said: Imam Ali irrigated the dates of the Jews of Madina until his hands were hard and his reward was dedicated and he himself propped his stomach with stones, they said: “Never once said no to someone who needed help.” One day, Mahfan bin Abi Mahfan went to Muawiyah. Muawiyah asked him, “Where are you from?” He intended to make Muawiyah happy. said, I have just come from the most stingy among all people. The point is Imam Ali. Woe to you! How is it possible for someone who if he has a storehouse of gold and straw he will use it to help the poor! ”
“Ali is a universal soul who has echoed the humming of eternity on the horizon of the Arabian Peninsula. But because his figure was greater than his time, the people at that time did not know who he was and could not digest his words … Ali had left the world, while the world watched its majesty. ” (Kahlil Ghibran, Poet)
Easy to Forgive and Tolerate
Ibn Abil Hadid said: “Imam Ali (as) has patience, is easy to forgive, is generous and ignores others who do no good to him, this is what happened in the Jamal war which is evidence of this. When Marwan bin Hakam was the enemy who was most obviously captured, the Imam released him and from this event had a tremendous effect. Abdullah bin Zubair uttered a vile word to Imam Ali in front of the public and when Abdullah with the Aisha army came to Basrah to read the sermon and Abdullah in the sermon said everything he wanted he said even by saying that now the least and the least despicable of men, namely Ali, will come to your city, but Imam Ali forgave him and the Imam only said, “Stay away from here so that I will not see you!” to Said bin Ash who was his enemy and after the Jamal war, he was captured in Mecca but it doesn’t matter.
Imam Ali’s treatment of Aisha was very well known. Although the Imam won, the Imam congratulated him. The Imam also ordered 20 women from the Qais Century tribe who all wore men’s clothes with sword gear to accompany Aisha to return to Medina even though during her journey Aisha continued to say abominable words to Imam Ali by saying that Imam Ali was undermining his honor and he sent a boy from his best friend to accompany his journey. After the entourage arrived in Medina, the woman said: “Look, we are all women who have been with you!”
After the war was over, the Basrah people who stood in Aisha’s ranks and part of her captive forces were all released and the Imam told his troops that no one should oppose this decision. They were declared free with the record they put down their weapons. Imam Ali did not make them prisoners of war, nor did they take their property as spoils of war as the Prophet Muhammad treated the people of Mecca in the Fathu Mecca incident.
Muawiyah forces in the Shiffin war closed the water for Imam Ali’s troops and troops. They made a barrier in the river Furat. The leader of the Muawiyah army said: “Ali and his army must feel a very thirst, as he killed Usman in thirst.” Then the two forces fought and Imam Ali’s forces succeeded in capturing the water. On that occasion, Imam Ali’s forces also forbade Muawiya’s troops to drink even a drop of water so that everyone would die of thirst, but Imam Ali said, “No, forever don’t do this, let them use some Furat water.”
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “As for the good side of temperament, he has become a saying as his enemies disgrace him. Sha’sha’ah bin Suhan and loyal friend of Imam Ali said,” Ali as among us is like one of us, does not judge the privilege of himself even tawadhu and humble so scared that we in front of him like prisoners with feet shackled under a man who was unsheathed his sword. ”
Jihad fi Sabilillah
Ibn Abil Hadid said: Friends and opponents of Imam Ali stated that he was a mujahid leader and that no one was worthy of this title. Everyone knows that the most fierce and fierce war in Islam is the Badr war when 70 infidels were killed. Half of that number was killed at the hands of Imam Ali and the other half was killed at the hands of the Muslims at the help of angels. The position and role of Imam Ali in the battles of Uhud, Ahzab, Khaibar, Hunain, and other wars have been recognized by history and need not be explained. Imam Ali is also good at understanding important issues such as the geography of Mecca, Egypt, and others.
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “He is the only champion who will always be remembered who erases the memories of the previous people and eliminates himself afterward.” Ali’s success in the battlefield was very well known in history so that even the Day of Judgment would always be an example. Knights who never fled from the battlefield and were not afraid of a large number of enemies. He does not fight unless he destroys his enemy and he is a person whose punch is so powerful that he never repeats the blow. When challenging Muawiyah to a duel so that one of the two died, people were confident and confident. Amr bin Ash to Muawiyah said: “Ali is no match for you. Muawiyah said to Amr bin Ash: Since you were with me, you have never once been cunning to me! You told me to fight someone who will never release another person from his clutches! I am very sure that after me, you are very enamored with the government of Sham. The Arabs are always proud if one day confronted him or my accomplice was killed by Ali as. “One day, Muawiyah was fast asleep on his throne, suddenly his eyes opened. He saw Abdullah bin Zubair nearby. He sat on nearby and jokingly said to Muawiyah: “O Amir al-mu’minin! If you agree, let’s wrestle wrestling. “Muawiyah said:” Woe to you Abdullah! I see you talking about someone who is brave and tough! Abdullah said: Do you deny my courage? I am someone who fought Ali on the battlefield. “Muawiyah said: ‘This is not the case at all. If you briefly stand before Ali then you and your father will be killed with his left hand while his right hand will remain ready to fight.”
Ibn Abil Hadid said, “Ali (as) is the most devout abid (devotee). Fasting and praying are the most of the others. People learn from him in performing night prayers and continuing to do sunnah prayers. And how do you judge one person? the man who guarded his sunnah prayers up to the Shiffin War on Laylatul Harir (the last night of the Shiffin War) between two lines, a prayer mat was held for him even though an arrow crossed between his hands and between his two ears without fear he keeps busy continuing his prayers, his forehead is like a camel’s knees because of the many prostrations, every time a person who listens to his prayers and prayers will realize how glorified he is to Allah, his simplicity before his greatness, his prostration before God and sincerity in him. where these prayers come from and through what word he flows.
Ali (as) was the leader of the people who ascended. Who will take this path, then he must follow the path of Imam Ali. Ali never once filled his stomach. Ali as consuming food and dressed roughly. Abdullah bin Abi Rafi ‘said, “I met Imam Ali on the feast. I saw him having a sealed bag. When I opened the cloth, I saw the rough bread that was untouched. He was eating the food. I said, “O Amir al-mu’minin! Why did you seal it? Imam Ali said, “I am afraid my children will smear it with butter or with olive oil.” The clothes he wore sometimes came from animal skins and sometimes from palm leaves. The footwear is made from palm fronds. And wearing clothes made from very rough. If you want to eat something other than bread then the side dishes are vinegar and salt. And if it’s better than this then some of it is mixed with plants or camel milk. He did not eat meat except a little and said, “Do not make your stomach like an animal storehouse.”
However, he was the most powerful person and the hunger he had did not reduce his strength in the slightest. He left the life of the world even though his wealth stretched throughout the Islamic world except for Sham he even shared his wealth with his people.
Nahjul Balaghah, Proof of Imam Ali’s Personal Greatness
The monumental work that has been recorded from the words and writings of Imam Ali is Nahj al-Balagah collected by Sayid Radhi, a prominent scholar in the 4th century H. After the Koran, Nahj al-Balagah is a sacred text for Shiites and is the highest religious literary values in Arabic. This book consists of three main parts: a collection of sermons, letters, and short lessons of Imam Ali in various situations or written by the Imam to be addressed to certain people. The sermons in Nahj al-Balāghah consist of 239 sermons and from a time review are divided into three: before the reign, in the reign, and post-reign.
The letters in Nahj al-Balagha consisted of 79 letters and almost all of them were written during his reign. Short sentences in Nahj al-Balāghah consist of 480 words of wisdom. Some of the Nahj al-Balāghah sharia are Syarh Ibn Maitsam Bahrani, Syarh Ibn Abi al-Hadid Mu’tazili, Syarh Muhammad Abduh, Syarah Muhammad Taqi Ja’fari, Darshāi az Nahj al-Balāghah by Husainali Muntazheri, Syari Fakhr al-Razi , Minhaj al Barā’ah by Qutb al-Din Rawandi, Syarh Nahj al-Balāghah by Muhammad Baqir Nawab Lahijani.
Imam Ali’s Milad was filled by Ustadz Ismail Daeng Naba’s live lecture from Qom al-Muqaddasah. The contents of his lecture include imitating the character of Imam Ali as who never gave up in his whole life because his life is only for Islam.
Imam Ali was also called by Tsarallah, whose meaning was a mazhlum (wronged) who was oppressed by the enemies of Islam, Tsarallah’s glory will only be repaid by Allah T’ala, for all the tormentors and shed holy blood.
In this event, Wiladah of Imam Ali as was enlivened by Nasyid and the coloring contest of the writing Ya Ali, Adrikni! This event was attended by all children who loved the Mulla Shadra Hasan Abu Ammar foundation and the Itrah Institute Palu . The excitement of the children who took part in the coloring contest added to the liveliness of the Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib as Wiladah event.
The highlight was Imam Ali as a blown candle cake that was blown by a handsome boy named Ali and the piece of the cake was given by the children to all fathers in the event. Because Imam Ali’s birth day is also celebrated as Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s Day to all dads on the glorious day of the birthday of the son of Ka’ba, Imam Ali bin Abi Talib as!
Jakarta, Mulla-Shadra.com – On the 16th of February, 2020, the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fathimah Az-Zahra as has been held in the foundation which was joined royally by the activists and was increasingly happily by the coloring contest of the Ahlul KIsa’s sketch by children.
Fathimah Az-Zahra as was born in Makkah al-Mukarramah on the 20th of Jumadil Akhir, in the 5th year of Bi’tah or 614 AH. In the early years of the prophetic Prophet Muhammad SAAW who was very bitter, Az-Zahra as had grown up as a noble daughter and always supported the Islamic da’wah of his father.
She is a holy woman who was given the title of Umm Abiha, Mother of his father. She was the only woman present with Prophet Muhammad SAAW, Imam Ali, Al-Hasan as, and Husein as at the time of Mubahalah event to the Christians of Najran’ progeny.
The historic event of mubahalah was reported by Allah Ta’ala in the Holy Qur’an, surah Ali Imran, verse 61:
“Then whoever argues with you about it after [this] knowledge has come to you – say, “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then supplicate earnestly [together] and invoke the curse of Allah upon the liars [among us].”
Although in the beginning, the mubahalah was only between Rasulullah SAAW and the male Christians, but in the end, they brought their children and wives in the mubahalah to be more convincing to those who preached on the truth of his da’wah.
Therefore they brought the best people from among them, who are beloved by the community, and in order to maintain the safety of the best people, they are willing to sacrifice themselves and put themselves in dangerous situations.
In addition, Allamah Tabataba’i (ra), noted that another reason for the inclusion of their families in the place of mubahalah was that perhaps by doing this, he wanted to say that one group condemned the other group, and the two groups laid down the curse of Allah Ta’ala to those who lied until His curse and punishment also surround his children, wives and themselves and in this way, hostility is uprooted to its roots.
From the said explanation, it is clear that it is not necessary for children, wives or self to be more than two so that the plural form of the verses can apply because according to the above explanation, the purpose of the plural is one of two joint debates the people, big or small, male or female, can all be destroyed.
Likewise, in this incident, the commentators, narrators, and historical evidence state that the Messenger of Allah PBUH did not bring anyone other than Ali, Fathimah, Hasan, and Hussein as.
And in this way, the selves are two people, the children are two people and only the wives are one person. And by doing that, the command of Allah remains carried out. In the Qur’an, it can also be witnessed by another thing that the verse in terms of causes of the descent of one person but the word form uses the plural; for example, the Zihar verse in QS. Al-Mujadalah.
Zamaksyari tells the story of Sayyidah Fatima’s participation in the Mubahalah event
Zamakhsyari in Tafsir al-Kasysyaf quoted the mubahalah verse from Ayesha that the Messenger of Allah (saaw) came out on the mubahalah and put on a robe to cover his black hair when Imam Hasan came, he put it in the robe, then Imam Husayn came and included it, and then Fatimah then Imam Ali, at that time he said:
“Verily, Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity (of sin), O Ahlulbayt (of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH), and to purify you with (extensive) purification.”
The Ahlu Sunnah ulama continued his explanation and said, “Bringing the children and wives at the time of mubahalah, shows more authority and trust than if they only mubahalah by themselves.
Because by including those who are loved, part of their souls, and who are deeply loved by society into curse and destruction and not only suffices itself, it shows courage.
Therefore, this shows that the Holy Prophet PBUH fully believed that his enemy was in a lie, which if there was a desire for a loved one and his baby would be broken to the base of the root.
The specialty of children and their wives is because they are the most beloved family who occupies a position in their hearts more than anyone even though humans are ready to put themselves in destruction just because they are not hurt at all and therefore in war, they bring his wife and children with him doesn’t separate.
Therefore, Allah Almighty put them first (wife and children) over himself (anfus) in this Mubahalah verse to show that their wife and children take precedence over themselves. ”
Based on this Zamakhsyari said: “This is the argument about the virtues of Ahlukisa’, where there is no proposition that is stronger than the proposition itself.”
Ustadz Ismail Daeng Naba (live from Qom al-Muqaddasah) was the lecture in the event of the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fathimah Az-Zahra as.
In his speech, Ustadz Ismail Daeng Naba emphasized the audience to always imitate the attitude and character of Az-Zahra as. Praised, trustworthy, and upholding the values of Islamic law are traces of Az-Zahra as we must always apply in various activities of our daily lives.
The event of the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fatima Az-Zahra as that organized by the foundation was also enlivened by a beautiful reading of nasyid about Fathimah as by Ogho Dedeng from Bandung. In the poetry of Nasyid that was sung beautifully,
Ogho Dedeng mentioned many virtues of Sayyidah Fatima as who is the leader of all woman in the universe and as the jewel of her father’s heart, Rasulullah SAAW, where Rasulullah SAAW said, “the pleasure of Fathimah as was my pleasure and my pleasure was the pleasure of Allah SWT and Fathimah’s anger is my anger and my anger is the wrath of Allah SWT. ”
The event commemorates the day of the Worship of Sayyidah Fatima as continued with the moment of the peak of the inflatable candle and cut the cake for Sayyida Fatima by a girl with a beautiful name Fatimah.
The red velvet tart is dedicated to the joy of Sayyidah Fatimah’s mother on the day of her glorious and glorious birth which gives blessings to nature.
The coloring contest an Ahlul Kisa’s sketch by the children enlivened the Wiladah Az-Zahra as event, where all the children got entertainment prizes from Mother Fathmah as and after finishing coloring the Ahlul Kisa as sketches each of the children unexpectedly came in to give a beautiful and fragrant rose that adds to the glory of the day of the birth anniversary of Sayyidah Fathima as, because in the day of wiladat of Fathima as is also a Mother’s Day.
Happy Mother’s Day, to all happy moms who are blessed by Mother Fatima Az-Zahra as!

The implementation of the training was intended for students aged 19-27 years. The purpose of the said training was to introduce and to guide the Moslem youth to the Islamic Epistemology. philosophy, and the true Islamic leadership that had been taught of Prophet Mohammed PBUH.
The Islamic epistemology concept explains in detail that Moslem has to get the meaning of Islam with its savvy in accordance with their belief and ideals so that Islam is made as to the main value towards the ma’rifatullah (knowing Allah SWT) as taught and exemplified by Prophet Mohammed PBUH and his holy family.

Also, this year-end training was aimed to recognize that Islam is the best way of life as exemplified by Prophet Mohammed PBUH and his holy family.
Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala says in the Qoran,” And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me” (Adz-Dzariyat: 56). The word of Allah on “to worship Me” is to “knowing Me”.
That is the words of Masumeen a.s. and statements of Ulamas. Therefore we can recognize the difference between ordinary people and knowledgeable people. Especially the prime knowledge that been given to them. “Surely Allah raises those who believe from you and those who are given some degree of knowledge. “(al-Mujadalah: 8).
By imitating the character of Allah (SWT) who elevates the ranks of pious people, here I want to reveal at a glance about the figure of the late Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimin Hasantono Abu Ammar or more familiarly known as “Syeikh Abu Ammar” as far as our togetherness and the range of my knowledge about the aspects of his life for Islam which can be a lesson for all of us
Syeikh Hasantono Abu Ammar was born in the city of Bondwoso East Java, Indonesia on February 17, 1962, from a simple but religious family. During his childhood, he was with his parents named Mr. Aswi and Mrs. Sudarlis. He also has a sister named Ummy Salamah. Their love did not make him complacent. Therefore, after completing his elementary school education, he entered the engineering school ST majoring in machinery which then proceeded to STM majoring in electricity with the aim of wanting to immediately ease the burden on his parents.
In addition to being a responsible person, he is also a true truth seeker. This has been proven since his youth. Departing from the background of Nahdhatul Ulama (the largest Muslim organization in Indonesia), he began his search by entering the world of Sufi tyrannies, after deep enough he was intrigued by Salafi doctrines which showed that the penance which he had been diving with turned out to contain shirk. His passion for truth saved him from dependence on penance. He left the penance which he said contained the shirk and tried to explore Tawheed while becoming an activist of Al-Furqon Jember city, East Java, under the guidance of the late Ustadz Asmawi. And joined the Muslim Brotherhood’s actual activities, namely the unity of the Islamic ummah who did not look at the schools at that time under the guidance of Ustadz Husein al Habsyi.
After navigating the ocean of knowledge of the Ahlul Bait, he was dealing with problems that were not easy to solve, so the deceased was involved in fundamental thought sciences, especially theology and philosophy. After studying for more or less five years he published his first book entitled AKIDAH SYI’AH, THE SERIAL OF TAUHID, and some else books such as: “The Summary of Muslim Logic”, “Imam Mahdi According to Ahlusunnah”. He studies intensively each level he went through with extraordinary enthusiasm ranging from the science of Logic, Philosophy, Bidayatul Hikmah to Fususul Hikam. And he is one of the students, in particular, Ayatullah Jawadi Amoli in the Asfar class (Hikmatul Muta’aliyah).
After all his knowledge of science, he traveled, according to the initial plan he was going home to devote himself to the homeland. However, he was confronted with the fact of the emergency needs of the community to mujtahid in the field of practical sciences, especially Islamic Jurisprudence (fiqh). Previously, he hoped that these needs could be met by other students in charge of the department. But due to various factors, and therefore those needs have not been fulfilled, and he should continue to study up to a Mujtahid Mutjazi level.
Based on the “principle of acting in accordance with taklif”, he is willing to postpone returning to pursue amaliah sciences while sharing knowledge through remote media. Relentless, day and night and with a deep longing he walked one by one the ladder of knowledge towards the mujtahid level. In the Usul Fiqh lessons he initially studied with Ayatullah Baqir Irawani but soon the teacher moved to Najaf then the deceased moved to Ayatullah Mahammad Sanad, soon he moved to Najaf after that from the Istishab chapter to the end he studied to Ayatullah Wahid Khurasani and from the first chapter to the Istishab chapter he studied in Ayatullah Khatami. And Jurisprudence argued he studied to Ayatullah Bahjat. After the Ayatollah Bahjat died the cleric studied with Ayatullah Jawadi Amuli until the end of your life. According to the deceased, at least a partial ijtihad (Mujtahid Mutajazi ‘) has been achieved. This means that he graduated from Bahtsul Kharij around 2005. And for a while, it was enough to cover part of the needs and emptiness of mujtahid in the country. Moreover, through his deep love of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Imam Khomeini, therefore still made him want to remain in the ranks of his muqallid. Therefore, he did not go to the test for ijtihad mutlak (Ayatullah level).
The love of knowledge and the spirit of searching for truth never faded and kept burning in him. True love. Not only for himself, he even tried to hide that love in the hearts of other students and encourage them to study until they became experts or mujtahids. Sometimes he even motivated young students with financial incentives. That he did maybe on the basis of “Kallimin nasa‘ ala qodri ‘uqulihim” and their conditions which sometimes still feel burdensome. Not because money should be a motivation for studying. Not once or twice he prevented others from dropping out of the study in the middle of the road and overcoming the obstacles they faced.
Besides Islamic studying, he was very persistent in preaching and sharing knowledge. Since the eighties (1980’s), he has been bonding like a traveling physician. Not waiting for someone else to come. He himself went around visiting them in any area of the archipelago; cities, villages, remote areas, even to neighboring countries and Iran. Difficulties, lack of facilities, even the threat of the enemy could not prevent his preaching activities. The responsibility of an intensive study again at Hauzah Scientific Qom also did not make him stop preaching. He updates the propaganda media according to the times. Before plunging into cyberspace he fostered questions and answers via electronic media and was published into a monthly magazine called al-Murasalat. He facilitated himself with sophisticated IT devices that made it easy to remote his tabligh. Sometimes he fell asleep in front of the computer. And almost one of the rooms in his house, he turned into a sound and image recording studio. But for one or two reasons it is not possible.
Tabligh traveling around the virtual world is quite concerned about his sadness, which has not been able to tabligh around the real world because he has to take the level of ijtihad. Lots of people get instructions, lessons and questions and answers with him. At least, it can be known from about 600 followers of the lifestreaming procession of his corpse on Iran’s HPI Instagram.
Among his prominent characteristics in the process of learning, teaching, and preaching the truth is the firmness of view and the resilience of criticism. Whenever he sees an error or deviation, he expressly expresses the view that he thinks is correct to the parties concerned. Never mind criticism, insults and curses did not make his face red or upset. In fact, not infrequently he even prayed the culprit during the evening prayers.
Many educational agenda, tabli, culture, and social service that he planned for the country, even he has made real preparations for it. But he died to pick him up first. And how many pious and good people are quickly called by God.
“Innamal a’malu bin niyat”, said the Prophet Muhammad PBUH. May Allah accept all is good deeds and plans, forgive all his shortcomings and mistakes, gather him with al Haq and his saints who are always with the truth, endow him with the intercession of Sayidah Zahra (AS) and the holly Ahlul bait (AS), give endurance to his family and brothers, and realize his good plans through other pious people and his successors.
