ALLAMAH SAYED MAHDI BAHRUL


Allah has always been more merciful to His servants. After their creation, they were not left on their own; rather He sent several guides for their guidance.

Sayyed b. Taoos


Sayyed b. Taoos (r.a.) was extremely conscious of his family history, about which he has written with great reverence. And rightfully so – since, on his father’s side, his family roots reach Imam Hasan (a.s.) and from his mother’s side, they reach Imam Husain (a.s.).

Jafar Sadiq


O Ahmad Ibn Ishaaq! I swear by Allah, he will go in occultation. None will remain safe in this era (of occultation) except the one whom Allah has kept firmly rooted in the belief of his (a.s.) Imamat and has granted him the grace to pray for his early reappearance. (Kamaaluddin, chapter 38, vol. 1)
