Pearl of Wisdom

'I went to the door of the place in Sarkhas where al-Rida was being held captive in chains. I sought permission from the jailor [to visit him) and he said, 'There is no way that you will be able to see him.' I asked, 'Why?' He replied, 'Because he sometimes offers one thousand prayers in the space of one day and night. He stops praying for a while at daybreak, before noon and before sunset. During these times he sits on his prayer mat and converses intimately with his Lord.' I said to him, 'Then request him to grant me permission during these times'. So he asked permission for me [to visit). I entered and he was sitting on his prayer mat meditating.'

The Lantern of the Path

The path of Islam contains a most comprehensive and total system of conduct for the wayfarer. The outer behaviour of a true Muslim reflects what is deep in his inner consciousness.

In his teachings, Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq shows the way to equilibrium in a most inspired way of tawhid. As a man of insight and knowledge he sees the unified hand and demonstrates it to the sincere seeker. These teachings can be of benefit to anyone who has an interest in spiritual matters and is concerned with benefiting from the path of Islam.

The Imam's explanations in 'The Lantern of the Path to Almighty Allah' contain many levels of understanding. Much depends upon the state of the seeker and the extent of his sincerity. Although this section is small, its meanings are vast.

We pray to Allah to increase our knowledge and experience of His vast compassion and mercy.
