Pearl of Wisdom

'An Imam from among us can only be infallible. Infallibility is not an outward physical feature that can be noticed which is why it must be documented [in the Qur?an or traditions].' He was then asked, ?O son of the Prophet, and what does infallible mean?' to which he replied, 'It refers to one who clings fast to the rope of Allah, and the rope of Allah is the Qur?an. They do not separate from each other until the Day of Resurrection, and the Imam guides to the Qur'an and the Qur'an guides to the Imam, which is the purport of Allah's saying [in the Qur?an]: Verily this Qur?an guides to what is most upright.?

"O people! You are the ones who stand in need of Allah, while Allah is the self-Sufficient, the Praised One" (Quran, 35:15).

The root word of "al-Hameed" is hamd which means: praise, something more general than thanking. Al-Hameed is also al-Mamood, the Praised One.

Allah is al-Hameed due to praising His own Self since time immemorial, and also due to His servants praising Him. His qualities, such as His being Glorified and Exalted, are due to the fact that those who mention His Attribute glorify and exalt it.

Hamd in this context means enumerating or the attempt to enumerate the qualities of perfection conceived by those who praise Him. Al-Hameed grants you success and compliments you for it; He wipes out your sins and does not embarrass you by exposing them. He is Praised due to His merits. One whose beliefs, conduct, speech and action are praiseworthy is called hameed.

Such a description fits only the Messenger of Allah and those whose ranks are close to his from among Allah's prophets as well as others such as the friends of Allah, and the scholars. Each one of these is hameed with regard to his beliefs, conduct, deeds and statements.
