Istikhara is indeed a proof!

Postby Norhan Alquersh » Sun Jun 21, 2015 9:09 pm

Istikhara is one way of the unseen to know and determine the rightful Successor of Allah swt on His Earth.
The companions of the Black Banners keep saying: "Ask Allah swt about us". But what does the office and its people say? They tell you do not ask Allah swt about the Black Banners because this would be disbelief and doubt! They never once told anyone to ask Allah swt about them! Why? Aren't they claiming to be with the truth? And why are they forbidding the Ansar to ask Allah swt?!

Haven't we been debating non-Ansar and using the Istikhara as a proof for the truthfulness of the call of Imam Ahmed Alhassan a.s?! What has changed now?!

Let's see what those hypocrites themselves said about Istikhara:




"O believers, pay attention to the danger of those who cut off the path from the people and make people doubt the ways of guidance which Allah swt has put for the people, and some of the clearest of those ways are the Istikhara and the truthful vision, and a lot other than that, as many as the breaths of creation!

Thirdly: A lot of narrations have been narrated from Ahlul Bayt pbut urging people to turn to Istikhara at the time of confusion and when they do not know guidance and when matters are confusing.

In the will of Imam Ali pbuh to his son AlHassan pbuh: "" Nahjul Balagha p393


The Messenger of Allah sawas said: "" - Mafatih AlJinan, AlBaqiyat AlSalihat


And many more hadiths other than this, urging people to turn to Allah swt and making Istikhara to Him swt. And it has been narrated that Safwan ibn Yahya AlJammal proved the imamate of Ali son of Musa AlRidha pbuh through Istikhara, and he is from the best companions of Imam Musa AlKathim pbuh and from the closest ones to him. Sheikh AlToosi narrated in his book AlGhayba p54:

From Ali ibn Mo’ath, he said: “I said to Safwan bin Yahya: ‘By what thing have you determined that Ali – meaning [Ali] Al Rida (pbuh) – [is the Imam]?’ He said: ‘I prayed, and supplicated to Allah, and I made Istikhara and became certain that he was him (the Imam)’” (Ghayba Al-Toosi: p. 54)"

This is something from the evidence that Istikhara is a proof. As for the ones who say that Istikhara is not a proof, they do not have an evidence! How could they deny an evidence with no evidence! What is wrong with you, how are you judging! So whoever says that Istikhara is valid for certain things and not for others, than he is saying this with no basis, so do not listen to him!" End of Nathim's words

Don't Nathim and his likes keep telling the Ansar "your istikhara about the Black Banners is invalid?" What makes them decide that istikhara for the Black Banners is invalid! What are they so afraid of if they are truthful?! Listen to your own words O Nathim!

Indeed Nathim AlUqeili and the other hypocrites of the office are like what Jesus a.s. said:
"" - The book The Calf by Imam Ahmed Alhassan a.s. P.55"








"Istikhara and the Companion of the Matter:

Another Divine Sign which has a connection to identifying the companion of this matter, but it was belittled by the people, and especially the great ones of the people, and it is the istikhara, the Imams of guidance pbuh have narrated a lot of Hadiths urging [people] to make Istikhara, from those narrations are:

The Commander of the believers pbuh said "." - Amali AlToosi V1 P135


It was said to Imam Sadiq a.s.: “Who are the most honorable/noble creations with Allah?” He (pbuh) said: “” It was said: “Who are the most hateful creations with Allah?” He (pbuh) said: “.” It was asked: “And does anyone accuse Allah?!?!” He (pbuh) said: “.” Bihar AlAnwar V75 P247

From Abi Abdullah (pbuh):“.” Bihar AlAnwar V88 P223


And from Imam AlSadiq (pbuh): “.” - Bihar AlAnwar V88 O225[Same Source]."





"Despite of all that, and many other than that from the traditions of the purified ones pbut, the people belittled the Istikhara in terms of it being capable of guiding them and participating in knowing the caller towards the truth today, even though they see the saying of the Commander of the Believer pbuh and how he pbuh determined that one of the way to know his son the Qa'im pbuh is through Istikhara. Sulayman ibn Hallal said"

Suliman bin Bilal narrated to us saying: Ja’far bin Muhammad (Upon them Peace) narrated to us from his father, [who narrated] from him grandfather, [who narrated] from Al Hussein bin Ali (Upon them Peace), saying: “A man came to the Prince of the Believers (Upon him Peace) and said to him: ‘O Prince of the Believers! Tell us regarding this Mahdi of yours!’ So he (pbuh) said: ‘ So he said: ‘O Prince of the Believers! From who is this man?’ So he (pbuh) said: ‘until he said: Then he returned to the description of The Mahdi (pbuh) and said: .” - Ghaybat Al-No'mani page 212."





"And it is known that the Commander of the Believers pbuh is speaking about the Mahdi who shall be given allegiance "make his allegiance an exit from adversity", and in fact he is the same whom the Messenger of Allah sawas spoke about when he mentioned the mahdi and described his allegiance and determined his name


Huzaifa said: I heard the Messenger of Allah sawas - and he mentioned the Mahdi, so he said: "."



. The hadith is about Safwan Al Jamal, and he is from the companions of the two Imams Al Kathim and Al Ridha (pbut), and he became certain, through Istikhara, about the Imamate of Imam Al-Ridha during the Fitna of The Waqifite (The Stoppers). Here is the narration which Alaa AlSalem quoted:

From Ali ibn Mo’ath, he said: “I said to Safwan bin Yahya: ‘By what thing have you determined that Ali – meaning [Ali] Al Rida (pbuh) – [is the Imam]?’ He said: ‘I prayed, and supplicated to Allah, and I made Istikhara and became certain that he was him (the Imam)’” (Ghayba Al-Toosi: p. 54)" - End of Alaa AlSalem words

Consequently, Safwan Al Jamal determined the Imamate of Ali Al Rida (pbuh) through Istikhara




Narrated from Abi Abdullah (Imam Ja’far As-Sadiq) (pbuh): “” [Wasa’il Al Shia / Door of Prayer and Istikhara].

And from him (pbuh): “” [Same source].

And from him (pbuh): “” [Same source].

Subhan Allah! I have just seen this part which I did not translate. Now I added it above (the added part is the one is red):

In the first quote from Nathim AlUqeili, where he said: This is something from the evidence that Istikhara is a proof. As for the ones who say that Istikhara is not a proof, they do not have an evidence! How could they deny an evidence with no evidence! What is wrong with you, how are you judging! "

Don't they keep telling the Ansar "your istikhara about the Black Banners is invalid?" What makes them decide that istikhara for the Black Banners is invalid! What are they so afraid of if they are truthful?! Listen to your own words O Nathim!

Indeed Nathim AlUqeili and the other hypocrites of the office are like what Jesus a.s. said:
"" - The book The Calf by Imam Ahmed Alhassan a.s. P.55
