                               Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hf) says:                               

"It is probable that I will be called soon, and I will respond.  So I leave behind me two weighty (very worthy and important) things: the Book of Allah (the Qur'an), which is a string stretched from the heaven to the earth; and my progeny, my ahl al-bayt.  Verily Allah, the Merciful, the Aware, has informed me that these two will never be separated from each other until they meet me at the Fountain of Abundance (the Hawdh of Kawthar, a spring in heaven).  Therefore, be careful how you treat these two in my absence."

This hadith has been narrated by more than twenty companions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh&hf) and has also been narrated by over 185 narrators mentioned in Sahih Muslim, 2:238; Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal, 5:181-182; Sahih Tirmidhi, 2:220, and others. (M.Ticani)

The Prophet of Islam(pbuh&hf), said:

"Whosoever dies without recognizing the Imam of his time dies the death of the ignorance (Jahiliyyah)."

Ahmad b. Hanbal, al-Musnad, p. 96.

               Every People With Their Imam

[Quran: 17:71] (Remember) the day when We will call every people with their Imam; then whoever is given his book in his right hand, these shall read their book; and they shall not be dealt with a whit unjustly.


The Shia of Ali (pbuh)

Ibn Abbas (RA) narrated from the Prophet (pbuh&hf):

When the verse

 "Those who believe and do righteous deeds are the best of the creation (Quran 98:7)" was revealed, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said to Ali: "They are you and your Shia." He continued: "O Ali! (On the day of Judgment) you and your Shia will come toward Allah well-pleased and well-pleasing, and your enemies will come angry with their head forced up. Ali said: "Who are my enemies?" The Prophet (PBUH&HF) replied: "He who disassociates himself from you and curses you. And glad tiding to those who reach first under the shadow of al-'Arsh on the day of resurrection." Ali asked: "Who are they, O the Messenger of Allah?" He replied: "Your Shia, O Ali, and those who love you."

Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 9329

I heard the Prophet saying, "There will be twelve imams." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, "All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraish."


Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4483

The Islamic religion will continue until the Hour has been established, or you have been ruled by twelve Caliphs, all of them being from the Quraysh.


Bukhari, Hadith:6420 

While we were sitting with the Prophet Surat Al-Jumu'a was revealed to him, and when the Verse, "And He (Allah) has sent him (Muhammad) also to other (Muslims)..."(62.3) was recited by the Prophet, I said, "Who are they, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question thrice. At that time, Salman Al-Farisi was with us. So Allah's Apostle put his hand on Salman, saying, "If Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya (pleiades, the highest star), even then (some men or man from these people (i.e. Salman's folk) would attain it."


Tirmidhi, Hadith:6244

Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him)  recited this verse, "If you turn back He will substitute other people for you and they will not be like you.  The people asked, "Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), who are these people whom Allah has mentioned will be substituted for us if we turn back and will not be like us?"  He struck Salman al-Farisi on the thigh and said, "This man and his people. If the religion were in the Pleiades men from among the Persians would attain it."


Bukhari Hadith:5283

I am from Ram-Hurmuz (i.e. a Persian town).


Tirmidhi Hadith:6249

Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "Allah, Who is Blessed and Exalted has commanded me to love four people, and He has informed me that He loves them." He was asked to name them and said, "Ali is one of them (saying that three times), also AbuDharr, al-Miqdad and Salman. He has commanded me to love them, and He has informed me that He loves them."

  Tirmidhi Hadith :6225

Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "Paradise is desirous of three people: Ali, Ammar and Salman."


      Who are Ahl al-Bayt?

 Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 5955:

  'A'isha reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) went out one

  norning wearing a striped cloak of the black camel's hair that there came

  Hasan b. 'Ali. He wrapped hitn under it, then came Husain and he wrapped him

  under it along with the other one (Hasan). Then came Fatima and he took her

  under it, then came 'Ali and he also took him under it and then said: Allah

  only desires to take away any uncleanliness from you, O people of   the   household, and purify you (thorough purifying) (quran 33:33)


Have you ever thought?  


The Imam of our time is Imam Mahdi (the twelfth Imam) and he is appointed by God.


  •   Where is he now and what should we do in his absence?

     He is alive and in occultation and will reappear whenever Allah wants.We should obey those scholars who obey 12 Imams, teach their knowledge and follow their instructions.

  •  Is is ok if we don't obey the IMAM of our time and live according to some other leaders?

    No,It is not ok. If we don't accept IMAM Mahdi (pbuh) as Imam of our time, our submission to God wont be accepted.Our deeds wont be acceped by God.Because those who don't accept the Imams are like those who don't accept God or the Prophet.

   Some Hadiths to Think About

"Oh..Ali!! you and your companions will go to Paradise on the day of Judgement."

"The parable of my ahl al-bayt is similar to that of Noah's ark.  Whoever embarks it will certainly be rescued, but the one who opposes boarding it will certainly be drowned."

"As the stars protect mankind from losing its way in travel, so are my ahl al-bayt; they are the safeguard against discord in matters of religion."

       "Acknowledgement of the Al-i-Muhammad means salvation from the Hellfire; the love of the Al-i-Muhammad is a passport for crossing the bridge of sirat; and obedience to the Al-i-Muhammad is protection from divine wrath
