Pearl of Wisdom

Narrating from Imam al-Rida (AS) when a man believing in dualism asked him, 'I believe that the creator of the world are two, so what is the proof that he is One?' The Imam replied, 'Your belief that there are two is proof in itself that he is One, for verily you have only claimed the second after having affirmed the existence of the One. So, the One is already agreed upon -it is more than one that is controversial [and remains to be proven].'

Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
Ibid. p. 270, no. 6

Subject: celebrations in Islam
Question: Celebrating birthdays allow in Islam?
Answer: We Shia Muslims, the followers of the Ahlul Bayt (a), have many occasions where we celebrate special occasions such as the 4 Eids, Meraaj, 13 Wiladats, i.e. birthdays of 14 Masumeen, etc.

Celebrating birthdays has the same logic where we recognise and acknowledge our trial on this earth and we should set yearly goals in order to truly appreciate the year lapsed.
