In the name of Allah the Merciful the Compassionate
Salam Alikum: Let's think deeply(Tadabor) in Ahd Doa, inshallah:
My God, the Lord of the Great Light He is the Lord and the trainer of Velaye and Imammate(the Great Light)
اللهم رب النور العظیم and the Lord of the Top Earth. (و رب الکرسی الرفیع He is the trainer of Velaye and Imammate(the Top Earth) and the Lord of the Boiling Sea(و رب البحر المسجور)
He is the trainer of Velaye and Imammate(the Boiling Sea) Since Velaye and Imammate are such as the great light , the top earth and the boiling sea. It has such a great light and it is a top earth and it is a boiling sea(it is lasting and flowing for ever. So, my God, you are the trainer of Velaye and Imammate( the great light, the top earth and the boiling sea).(اللهم رب النور العظیم و رب الکرسی الرفیع و رب البحر المسجور)
And You who sent down the Torah(the Old Testament) and the Bible and and the Book of Psalms(و منزل التوراه و الانجیل و الزبور) They were sent down. They were so greater than what they looked to be when they were sent down since their reality and their original was Quran.
And the Lord of shadow and the hot sunshine(رب الظلل و الحرور) He is the trainer of what seems to be cold such as shadow and what seems to be hot like the hot sunshine. He is the trainer of Velaye and Imammate what you may some time think it is like a shadow or like a hot sunshine He is the trainer of both Imam Hassan(A.S.) and Imam Hossain(A.S.), too.
And You who sent down the Great Quran(و منزل القران العظیم) The Great Quran was sent down since its reality was so greater then what it looked to be. Its reality and its original was Prophet Mohammad(PBUH). And now on its reality is Imam Mahdi(AJ) which is now like a shadow but he is being trained to appear his hot shines (his Velaye and Imammate) as soon as possible, inshallah.
And You the Lord of the so closed angels and the Prophets and the ones who have missions(رب الملائکه المقربین و الانبیاء و المرسلین) He is the trainer of them all . The reason that Allah trained and still trains them all is for the Arrival of Imam Mahdi(AJ). And we call Him in this Ahd Doa to ask for those holy moments.
My God: I ask You and swear You to Your Generous Side, Representative(اللهم انی اسئلک بوجهک الکریم) Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Generous Side and Representative. And we are asking for his Arrival by swearing Allah to himself. Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Representstive. It means that he is showing Allah's Side(Face).
And ( swear You) to the Shiny Light of Your Face(Representative)(و بنور وجهک المنیر) Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Shiny Light of His Face(Representative). And we are asking for his Arrival by swearing Allah to himself. Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Representstive. It means that he is showing Allah's Shiny Light.
And (swear you) to Your Old Dominion(و ملکک القدیم) Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Old Dominion(Representative). And we are asking for his Arrival by swearing Allah to himself. Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Representstive. It means that he is showing Allah's Old Dominion. Imam Mahdi(AJ) is Allah's Generous Face, Shiny Light of His Face and Old Dominion. So, we conclude that He is Allah's Representative and we ask Him to reach us to his Arrival as soon as it is possible, inshallah. You, The Alive, The Permanent(یا حی یا قیوم) We are calling Him through these names to ask him something about our alive Imam and who is permanent for along.
We ask You through Your name which the skies and earths were brightened through it.(اسئلک باسمک الذی اشرقت به السموات و الارضون) We are calling Him through this name to ask Him about his Arrival which is going to brighten all the skies and earths(lands).
And through Your name which the first and the last were reformed (و باسمک الذی یصلح به الاولون و الاخرون) We are calling Him through this name to ask him about Imam Mahdi(AJ)'s reformation.
You, The Alive before any alive(یا حیا قبل کل حی)
And You, The Alive after any alive(یا حیا بعد کل حی)
And You, The Alive while none were alive(و یا حیا حین لا حی) We are calling Him through these names "The Alive before, after and while none were alive" to ask Him about our alive Imam who was alive before, after and while none of us were alive.
You, The One Who Restores To Life to The Death(یا محیی الموتی) We are calling Him through this name to ask Him about our Imam who is supposed to restore to life all the death hearts.
And You, The One Who Causes The Death To the Alive(و ممیت الاحیاء) We are calling Him through this name to ask Him about our Imam who is supposed to cause the death to the alive worldly desires.
You, The Alive; There is no God other than You(یا حی لا اله الا انت) We are calling Him through this name to ask Him who is The Alive and The only God face to face. We are getting closer to Him by praying(Doa) for our Imam so we call him as :
There is no God other than You(یا حی لا اله الا انت)
My God, convey my mother, my father and my blessings: to our master, Imam, the guidance, the guided, and the standing to Your orders the one whose Allah's blessings is to him and to his purified forefathers from all the men and women believers from the east and the west of the earth from the flat and the mountain part of it from the dry and the sea part of it from the blessings as worthy as Allah's Heaven and as many as His words and as to what His Knowledge is surrounded it and as to what His Book is acquainted it اللهم بلغ مولانا الامام الهادی المهدی القائم بامرک صلوات الله علیه و علی آبائه الطاهرین عن جمیع المومنین و المومنات فی مشارق الارض و مغاربها سهلها و جبلها و برها و بحرها و عنی و عن والدی من الصلوات زنه عرش الله و مداد کلماته و ما احصاه علمه و احاط به کتابه
My God: I renew my oath, promise and obedience of my allegiance for him(Imam Mahdi AJ) at the beginning of this day and throughout my life اللهم انی اجدد له فی صبیحه یومی هذا و ما عشت من ایامی عهدا و عقدا و بیعه له فی عنقی
This vow will never change And it will never destroy, never! لا احول عنها و لا ازول ابدا It shows that we should renew our relation as an Omah( a nation) to our Imam each morning and throughout our life. It is supposed to never change and destroyed at all. And it is showned in our lives throughout our deeds It is firstly showned through our words and then through our hearts and deeds. The difference between our oath, promise and obedience is exactly these three ☝️levels of relations that we could establish for our Imam. We show our oath through the words we use in our talks to him. And we show our promise through our heart while we love him. Finally, we show our obedience to our allegiance through our deeds for his Arrival inshallah.
Oh, my God: Put me one of Imam Mahdi(AJ)’s helpers , supporters, the defenders , those who hasten to varry out his instructions, of his assistants, his Abdals, his pegs, and his devotees اللهم اجعلنی من انصاره و اعوانه و الذابین عنه و المسارعین الیه فی قضاء حوائجه و الممتثلین لاوامره و المحامین عنه و السابقین الی ارادته و المستشهدین بین یدیه
Stages of Preparing Helpers of Imam Mahdi (as Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said:
“How will you be when you are without any leading Imam and guide? Some of you will detach yourself from others. At that time you will be separated from each other as in a sieve, and at that time:
The first stage: “to mayyazoon” (you will be separated); the bad and good will be separated from each other.
The second stage: “tomahhasoon: (you will be refined); like refining of mine stone, like gold which first is melted and then some substance is added to it so that its impurities are separated.
The third stage: “togharbaloon” (you will be shaken in a sieve); like sieving of grain when weak and bitter grains don’t stay in the sieve Our relief (the time of Imam Mahdi’s Arrival) will not come until you are sieved and sieved and sieved, until God Almighty separates the impure from the pure.” (Kulayni, Usul Kafi, vol. 1, p. 370 and vol. 8, p. 67)
The defenders …:” والذابین عنه All their capabilities and actions must be at the service of defending Imam Mahdi (AJ) and theWilayah Faqih during the occultation of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) is the continuation of the Wilayah of the infallibles;[ meaning that during the absence of an infallible Imam, the responsibility of administrating and managing the affairs of the Islamic society should be carried out by the jurists](1). , not defending themselves and their own deeds and words.
The defenders …:” All their capacities along with pure faith and belief, good deeds and words, sound writing, knowledge, wealth, time, tongue and … should be spent on the way of defending Imam Mahdi (A.S.) and his companions.
Those Who Hasten to Carry Out Imam Mahdi (A.S.)’s Instructions “…: والمسارعین الیه فی قضاء حوائجه These are people who have put aside their personal concerns and are only concerned with their beloved Imam’s requests and orders. Their speed is a sign of their eagerness and enthusiasm to comply with their Imam’s instructions And this eagerness is revealed in their midnight prayers.
The Assisstants of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) The abiders of his orders: و الممتثلین لاوامره If we consider our own desires or protest about His orders, we would be deprived of the attainment of abiding Imam’s orders. We would receive the rest of Imam Mahdi’s orders through inspirations, which is a divine mercy; and by obeying His orders, we must abide them as much as we can.
The “Abdals” of Imam Mahdi (A.S.) (His supporters): والمحامین عنه are His privileged, high-ranked, righteous fellowships, and His servants, scapegoat, and supporters. In fact, Allah banishes the disasters away from mankind by these holy entities. Prophet Mohammad (PBUH): Apprehend that “Abdal” (Imam Mahdi’s supporters) have not achieved this eminence by praying, fasting or alms. He was asked: So how have they reached this prominence? By bounty, generosity and benevolence, he responded. (Al-Tabarani, Vol. 1, p. 224)
Pegs of Imam Mahdi (AS) (Those who compete with each other to fulfill his intention) : والسابقین الی ارادته In a part of the "tradition of Ascension" Almighty God says to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) : "O Ahmad! Do you know why I choosed you over the other prophets? »grand prophet of Islam says : I swear to God, no. And the Lord says: "For [type of] creation, good natured, generous and kindness to people.
And Otad, pegs of earth are like this and only the people who have these attributes can be among them .
Devotees of Imam Mahdi(A.S.):والمستشهدین بین یدیه They also as real lovers like butterflies orbit around his shiny candle of Imam Mahdi.They burn and dedicate their existence to him. . Allah purchases his/her soul because that martyr become a witness of his/her satisfaction so he makes his slaves satisfied this way.
My God: Whether my death caused a distance between me and him(Imam Mahdi AJ)اللهم ان حال بینی و بین الموت It is talking about the ones whom there is not any distance between them and him while they are alive, So, they are worried about this point that if their death causes a distance between them and him what is going to happen.(This doa is said by Imam Sadeq A.S.) So, he asks God through this doa to insure about after he reaches his death. The death which You have settled it for all Your servants( creatures) certainly and constantly. الذی جعلته علی عبادک حتما مقضیا It refers us to a death which could make a distance between us and the Imam. We might have two deaths: the death of our body and the death of our heart.
So, at this phrase of Ahd Doa we talk to God about both these deaths which each of them causes a distance between us and the Imam. 1⃣ Please, send me your Tadabor about any of the above phrases of Ahd Doa in my pv. (@golhayearbain ) I'll put them in this channel as soon as possible. We are supposed to be trained over here on how to propagate better for Imammate and Velaye inshalleh. I am looking for your participation in this Tadabor . Send me all your suggestions for a better working in this channel, too.
Take me out of my grave فاخرجنی من قبری Since the only distance between the real Ansar Al-Mahdi and their Imam while they are dead is their grave, they ask God to be taken out from it. Because they cann't resist to be away from him at his Arrival.
Even if I am covered by death clothes موتزرا کفنی They are so much in rush for giving service to their Imam so they ask to be permitted to help him even though while they are in their death clothes With an uncovered sword شاهرا سیفی It shows that Ansar Al-Mahdi don't want to even hesitate in helping the Imam even for a second With an uncovered dart مجردا قناتی It seems that they ask some helping war weapons, too, to be at the servic of the Imam.
Since, they want to help him much more than a sword. And the sword and dart could be a symbol of so many things such as a pen, a tongue and etc. to be at the Imam's service, too. While I accept his invitation while he invites (everyone for helping him)ملبیا دعوه الداعی He is supposed to invite everyone to help him for his Arrival. And we ask Allah to give us this opportunity to accept his invitation while we are truely ready for it.
Whether I am in habitable or inhabited place فی الحاضر و البادی I am worried about being far away from the Imam . Since , some places might be far away from where he is going to be at his Arrival. So, I ask Allah to call me and to take me out of my grave to be at his service anyway. (It continues)
My God, show me Imam Mahdi(AJ)'s valueable eleganceاللهم ارنی الطلعه الرشیده Show me his valueable elegance. So, the main thing is that we could see how a praying, a doa , could reach us to such an aim. He has a worthy and valueable elegance. Imam Sadeqh(A.S.) prefers to call for his visit by mentioning his adjectives such as that to urge us to ask for his visit, too.
We understand the reason that Imam Mahdi(AJ)'s elegance is worthy and valueable is because all the beauties of Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) and all the Imams(A.S.) could be all seen in him. You know since when we see him it is like we see all of them. That beauty and valueable elegance is the manifestation of Allah's elegance and beauty. Since he and all the Imams pay all their attentions to Allah and they do whatever He orders so His elegance would manifest on them.
So, whoever wants to see Allah's worthy and valueable elegance ask Him to show Imam Mahdi(AJ)'s elegance. His praised forehead (Show me that enlighten respectable man ), والغره الحمیده It could mean that I want to see him so closely eventhough to see his forehead The reason that we are supposed to see his praised forehead could also mean that not only I want to see his face but also to know him through his understandings.
Since Imam Sadegh(A.S.) in this Doa is not repeating exactly the same phrases. But also he is trying to show the different aspects of his aims. Since what Imam Mahdi(AJ) understands is praised by Allah. And we are asking Allah to show his understanding and thoughts to us so that we could know him better.
And anoint my eyes to look at him through your attention to me واکحل ناظری بنظره منی الیه Anyone could anoint his eyes with collyrium to see everything better. Since, it is so useful for his sight. And the point is that if Allah anoint our eyes with collyrium so that we could see him much better. This opportunity would be given only to those who have attracted Allah's attention to themsleves through doing good deeds by believing and obeying Velaye and Imammate.
Imam Sajjad(A.S.) told one of his friends named Aboukhaled, rahmatollah: " The people who live in Absence Time of Imam Mahdi (AS) and believe in his Imamate and leadership and are waiting for his Appearance and uprising are superior than the people of any other era, because the Almighty Allah has granted them such wisdom, understanding and cognition that his Absence is the same as his appearance. (For awareness and cognition, they consider Imam Mahdi(AS) Absence like his appearance)" So, Allah has anointed their eyes to look at him and see him always as he is appear. It is a kind of wisdom, understanding and cognition that Allah have given it to them because of his belief in his Imammate and waiting for his appearance by doing good deeds, inshallah.
(My God) rush in his Arrival and make his existance easy and widen his path: و عجل فرجه و سهل مخرجه و اوسع منهجه We ask Allah to rush for his Arrival so that all could see him, too. We ask Him to make his existance easy from where he is now, so that no people reach any trouble by his Arrival. And we ask Him to widen his path of Arrival so that all the poeple could reach him for the allegiance with him.
And disciple me at his manner and execute his order and strenghten his back: واسلک بی محجته و انفذ امره و اشدد ازره We ask Allah to put us as his real followers and to make others to be as his real followers, too.
So, that he could become powerful. My God, fertilize your lands and give a new life to your servants(your people): واعمر اللهم به بلادک و احی به عبادک We ask Allah to let Imam Mahdi(AJ) to Arrive since all lands would fertilize by his Arrival. And also, all Allah's servants would get a new life through his Arrival.
Since You just told and Your talk is The Truth: فانک قلت و قولک الحق Due to the bad deeds of people immorality appeared : ظهر الفساد فی البر و البحر بما کسبت ایدی الناس A sign which was supposed to occur before the Arrival of Imam Mahdi(AJ) and it has occurred, is that immorality appears throughout the world because of the bad deeds of people And that was told by Allah and you know that is The Truth.
So, my God, appear Your Vali(Imam Mahdi AJ) for us: فاظهر اللهم لنا ولیک We ask Allah that since the immorality has appeared so you appear your Vali, too.
Whom is the son of Mohammad’s daughter and has the same name as Your Prophet: وابن بنت نبیک المسمی باسم رسولک Allah's Vali is the son of the Prophet's daughter and his name is the name of His Prohet(PBUH), too. What could it be its reason? Probably, it is because he is supposed to be introduced to the world through the Prophet(PBUH).
So, that none of the Falsehood would overcome untill he would vanish it and fix and confirm the Truth : حتی لا یظفر بشیء من الباطل الا مزقه و یحق الحق و یحققه We ask Allah to appear Imam Mahdi(AJ) so that all the Falsehood vanishes and of course the Truth appears.
Imam Mahdi(AJ) is the Truth which Allah is going to fix and confirm it throughout the world. Velaye and Imammate is the Truth which Allah is going to fix and confirm it by the Arrival of Imam Mahdi(AJ), inshallah.
My God! Place him as a backer for weak people واجعله اللهم مفزعا لمظلوم عبادک Some of the people have been oppressed and became weak through some oppressors and we ask God to send Imam Mahdi(AJ) to help them Since he is the saviour of all the oppressed people.
Make him as a helper or support for those who have no other than you . و ناصرا لمن لا یجد له ناصرا غیرک All the people need help for all their needs and some of them don't have any help other than Allah. So, we ask Allah to put Imam Mahdi(AJ) as their help and to support them.
Make him to renew any rules of Your Book which is not in its place anymore . و مجددا لما عطل من احکام کتابک You know many of the rules of The Holy Book of Quran is not actually and truely done. And we ask Allah to send him to do whatever is ordered in it.
Make him to strenghten all the signs of your religion and Mohammad’s sonat(traditions) و مشیدا لما ورد من اعلام دینک و سنن نبیک صلی الله علیه و اله When Imam Mahdi(Aj) Arrives he would help the weak people, renew any rules of Quran and strenghten all the signs of religion and Prophet's traditions. So, we ask Allah for his Arrival for those wishes, too.
Peace be upon Prophet Mohammad and his Ahlol Bait(PBUH) My God, protect him(Imam Mahdi AJ) as those whom you protect them against the violence of aggressors. واجعله اللهم ممن حصنته من باس المعتدین We ask Allah to protect him, since he is our Imam. Since the aim of the aggressors of the world is to hurt him.
My God, make your prophet, Mohammad(peace be upon him and his family) happy through meeting him(Imam Mahdi AJ) and all those who followed his invitation . اللهم سر نبیک محمدا صلی الله علیه و آله برویته و من تبعه علی دعوته Since it was all the aim of Prophet Mohammad(PBUH)'s mission to reach the Arrival of Imam Mahdi(AJ).
That is the only way that his mission would reach its great result through the worldly revoulution of Imam Mahdi(AJ) And may You have mercy upon us after that. وارحم استکانتنا بعده We should take refuge from Allah especifically for the time of his Arrival since all would be examined at that time and we need His mercy to success them.
God, dissolve this grief from this nation by his presence.اللهم اکشف هذه الغمه عن هذه الامه بحضوره And hurry up for us in his Arrival و عجل لنا ظهوره They look for it in a long time but we look for it in a short time انهم یرونه بعیدا و نراه قریبا As to Your Mercy, You The Merciful برحمتک یا ارحم الراحمین
We ask Allah to take off this grief(that Imam Mahdi AJ) hasn't arrived yet) by two things: firstly by his presence and secondly by his Arrival. If we believe that Imam Mahdi(AJ) is present and he is with us throughout our lives it would help us to get ready for his Arrival so sooner. If we believe that he is present we talk with him, we would have at least an spiritual relation with him. We would have a good moral and good deeds at his presence. If we believe that he is present we would see his Arrival, too. Imam Sajjad (AS): "Oh, Abou Khaled ( Abou Khaled Kaboli)! Verily the people of his ( Imam Mahdi A.S.) Absence era, who believe in his Imamate and are waiting for his arrival are the best people of all eras, because the Almighty Allah has granted them such wisdoms, understandings and cognitions that Absence is deemed like presence."
Hurry up, hurry up Ya Molla, Ya Saheba Zaman(AJ) :(3 times) (Ya Mahdi hurry up and arrive) العجل العجل یا مولای یا صاحب الزمان Yes, he should hurry up and ask Allah for his Arrival, since he is our master(our Molla). Since, he is the owner of this time.
This era belongs to him. We ask him three times, since our call should pass three levels of our beings to reach him. Those three levels are the natural world, the inner world and the reasonal world.
We should call him such as a mother who has lost her child and calls him. She calls her child so deep even through her natural, inner and reasonal level of her being.
The more sincere we become, the more we could reach and pass these👆 three levels of our being.
The more we have dependence to these three levels the less we could reach and pass them.
There are three levels that we should put away from our heart in order to reach Marefat, wisdom
We have lost our reality.
Three levels have made us busy. One is this natural world that we live in.
Everything at this natural world has a body and a face.
The other is that inner world. Dreams are from that world . Everything at that level doesn't have a body but it has a face.
The last world which we should reach to it is the reasonal world. Everything there neither have a body nor a face.
We should reach and pass it, too, to realize that The Reason is only Allah.
After reaching and passing those three levels we confront with some level that there is nothing but Allah. I mean we reach a level which there is nothing but his names and adjectives.
And then we do not pass it after reaching it, since that's the end of what we are supposed to get from Marefat.
But the more we do good deeds the more we get familiar to that stage.
And that is what Imam Hossain(A.S.) said at the last passages of his Arefe Doa :
فصار العرش غیبا فی ذاته محققت الاثار بالاثار و محوت الاغیار بمحیطات افلاک
یا من احتجب فی سرادقات عرشه عرن ان تدرکه الابصار
Arefe Doa is supposed to give us Marefat. And he has pointed to these three levels at the end of his Doa.
Especifically, he pointed to the stage we could reach but not pass it, which is called The Unity. And he praises Allah, for it at the end of Doa.(الحمدلله وحده)
