GHADAMGAH is a village which is located on the way from Mashhad to neyshabour. What makes this ancient and beautiful village important for

Siiat Muslims is that there is a pair of foot prints on a piece of stone which

they believe it belongs to Imam Reza (the eighth religious leader after

Mohammad the prophet).

 

I've uploaded some images from this village which mainly are added

to Forgotten Land set.

 

Meanwhile I'm going to upload some shots of that part of the village

which attracts too many pilgrims and visitors not only from other cities

of Iran but pilgrims from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Arabian countries.

Khorasan (also transcribed as Khurasan and Khorassan, anciently called Traxiane during Hellenistic and Parthian times) currently names a region located in north eastern Iran, but historically referred to a much larger area east and north-east of the Persian Empire (see Greater Khorasan). The name Khorasan is Persian and means "where the sun arrives from." The name was given to the eastern province of Persia during the Sassanid Empire. Khorasan is famous world wide for its saffron and zereshk which are produced in the southern cities of the province. Production is more than 170 tons per year. Khorasan is also known for its famous rugs as well as for the Ferdousi and Imamreza shrines/tombs.

One year ago I was in Iran. After a week travelling to many wonderful and beautiful places together with my collueges from University I visited Mashhad on my own.

I didnt know, what to expect from the city of the holy shrine of Imam Reza - would the let me inside, would it be allowed to visit the shrine itself? I my dreams I couldnt even imagine if I would be allowed to take pictures. After all I was warned by many collueges and also Iranian friends that I - as not being a muslim - might be refused entry...

 

Now, a year later, this visit is one of my most vibrant memories. I visited the holy shrine three times and spent countless hours watching, admiring, wondering. I was warmly welcomed by all, the guards and pilgrims. As a non muslim I was truly surprised how I was taken into this experience by the shiite pilgrims visiting at the same time as me. I am also thankful for the opportunity to take some pictures (some even suggested me buying a small tripod, which I of course did and I used it for some photos which turned out to be wonderful).

 

There are indeed not many occasions in the world which can give you the feeling you are witnessing something special - seeing the pilgrims in the holy shrine of Imam Reza is certainly one of them.

 

On one of my visits I was accompanied by an Iranian flickr friend, who introduced me in the wonderful architecture and many aspects of past and modern culture in today's Iran. To him and to Soudeh I dedicate this photograph and many thanks.

 

As I know that photographing in the shrine is usually strictly prohibited I will only post this single photograph - but I strongly recommend everyone to visit Iran and have a look by yourself.

Congratulation On The Birth Of Imam Reza (pbuh)

    

Name Ali

Title Musa Al-Reza

Kunyat Abul Hassan

Born Thursday, 11th of Dhul-Qa'dah 148 A.H. Medina

Father's Name Musa Ibin Ja'far

Mother's Name Ummul Baneen Najma

Buried In Mashhad, Iran

Martyrdom At the age of 55 years, in Mashhad,

Khorasan, 17th of Safar 203 A.H.

poisoned by Ma'moon, the Abbasie Caliph.

   

Imam Reza was born on Zulqadih 11, 148 A.H. His father was the seventh Imam and his mother was a very virtuous lady called Najmeh. He was called “ Ali” after his grandfather’s name. According to the history, there were other nicknames for him too. Among them the most noticeable ones are “Abol-Hasan”, “Reza”, “Sabir”, “Razi”, and “Fazil”. When he was 35, Imam Kazim (his father) became martyr and then he took the control of the Muslims’ affairs. The period of his Imamate was about 20 years and it was along the three kings of Abbasid dynasty. “Harroon” and his two sons “Amin” and “ma’moon” who were the most influential kings of this era. Their political policies were full of tyranny and deceits. They followed this policy while facing Prophet’s family and Shi’ites to prevent the potential rebels of the believers of the innocent Imams, against them. Adhering to this policy, they respect Imam Reza a lot. They handed over the garden of “Fadak”, the Shi’ites were granted highly, valued status. However; Imam was totally aware that it was nothing but a trick and the reason was that his followers were controlled. Imam Reza spent the most of his life in Medina and a great deal of attention was paid to him by the Muslims. “Abu Saraya” Rising was formed under the shadow of Imam’s guidance aimed at the overthrow of the Abasid and enforcing of Imam Ali’s progeny. Adhering to their tricky policy the Abasids could suppress that revolt. However; his followers had been identified for many years as the followers of Imam Ali’s progeny and the enemies of the Abasids in Mecca, Yemen, and Basra. This public attention and the other movements directed by Imam Reza and Alavians (the followers of Imam Ali) made Ma’moon to arrange a plot. This would mean that he forced Imam Reza to move from Medina to Khorasan so that he could observe him closely, besides he could disintegrate the Shi’ites. Being an obligatory invitation and no desirable at all, Imam left for Cufah and Basra. However; he was stopped by the Abasid Caliph and the next destinations had to be Basrah, Ahwas and Fars. Imam Reza went to Khorasan in 201 (AH). He was welcomed dearly in accordance with Ma’moon’s command, in Marv. At the beginning it appeared that Imam was going to be appointed as the Caliph. Having rejected the idea, Imam was threatened to accept Ma’moon’s heir presumptive. Imam Reza’s life, which was after the scientific movement of Imam Baqir and Imam Sadiq, was the age of the Islamic scientific progress. The spirit of the Islamic school of thought was well known every where. However; Imam Reza was the most outstanding scientist ever existed in that era. There have been historical documents, which are indicative of many scientific discussions between Imam Reza and the great religious figures of that era. On his birthday, we pray to God that this honorable Imam whose shrine is our sanctuary in this world would set the things so that our sins would be forgiven.

Shah Cheragh is the most important place of pilgrimage within the city of Shiraz since 14 century AD, although its origin comes from 12th century AD.

 

Shah Cheragh is a funerary monument and mosque in Shiraz, Iran, housing the tomb of the brothers Amir Ahmad and Mir Muhammad, sons of Musa al-Kadhim and brothers of Imam Reza. The two took refuge in the city during the Abbasid persecution of Shia Muslims.

 

‘Alī ibn Ḥusayn was born in Madina some 22 years ago, on 5th Shabaan 38 year of Hijra. In some history books his date of birth is shown as 15th Jumada Awwal 38 AH. His mother was Shahr Banu the daughter of Yazdjurd II, the last of the Persian Kings before Islam.

The calm and peaceful life of the Imam was not to be tolerated by the Ummayad's cruel regime. They realized that the Imam was succeeding in his mission of spreading the message of his father Hussain (AS). The Syrian monarch Walid Ibn Abdul Malik had him poisoned. He died in Madina on the 25th of Muharram 95 Hijri. His eldest son Muhammad Ibn Ali al Baqir arranged the burial and laid him to rest in the grave yard of Jannatul Baqi beside his uncle Imam Hasan (AS).

 

He is known as Zayn al-Abidīn "Beauty/Best of the Worshippers". He is also referred to as Imām al-Sajjad "the Prostrating Imām" and Sayyid as-Sājjadīna wa r-Rāki‘īn "Leader of Those who Prostrate and Bow".

 

Maxims of Imam Zainul Abedin(A.S.)

As he was asked to define the greatest of people, Imam As-Sajjad(A.S.) said: The greatest of people is that who does notsee the world as great.

Before Imam As-Sajjad(A.S.), a man said: O Allah, make me do without people," The Imam instructed: This is not accurate. People are in the service of each other. You should say: O Allah, make me do without the evil ones.

The richest of people is that who is satisfied with what Allah has chosen for him

Imam Zeynel Abidin (as) behavior toward his Enemies- Jihad with character (Akhlaq):

~~~~~*****~~~~~

 

Incident 1

As a reaction people of Madina revolted against Yazid, after hearing the horrifying stories of Karbala from Imam Zeynel Abidin (as) in the year 64 AH. The people of Medina removed Yezid's governor from his post of governorship in Medina, Fearing for their lives, the Bani Umayyah started running away from Medina. Marwan bin Hakam had a large family of women and children and could not run away for his life unless he could find someone who would agree to house his women and children. Marwan bin Hakam approached several people including Abdullah ibn Umar bin Khattab but all refused to help him. Finally Marwan bin Hakam turned to Imam Zeynel Abidin (as) for help.

 

Marwan bin Hakam was enemy number one of the Holy Prophet (saw) and his family. As a matter of fact, the Holy Prophet (saw) had ordered Marwan and his father Hakam bin Aas to leave Medina as unwanted persons. It is the same Marwan who had fought against Imam Ali (as) in the battle of the Camel (Jung-e-Jamal). Marwan also was one of those who prevented Imam Al-Hassan (as) to be buried next to his grandfather's grave. Again, it was Marwan who had told Walid, the Governor of Medina in 60 AH to force "Bayah" from Imam Al-Hussein (as) in the court or to cut-off his head if he refused.

 

Despite all this, Imam Zeynel Abidin (as) agreed to help Marwan bin Hakam without any hesitation. Marwan's family stayed with the Imam in Imam's house for as long as they wished. Imam Zeynel Abidin (as) then arranged for them to go to where Marwan was. In fact, Imam's house was open for anyone who came seeking for protection at this time.

 

Incident 2

As for the behavior of the Ima`m toward his enemies, those who harbored malice against him, and those who wronged him, it was distinguished by kindness to them.

The historians said: "Isma`'il b. Hisha`m al-Makhzu`mi, the governor of Medina, harbored malice against the members of the House (ahl al-Bayt) , peace be on them, hurt Ima`m Zayn al-'Abidin, and cursed his grandfathers on the pulpits in order to seek nearness to the rulers of Damascus.

When al-Walid b. 'Abd al-Malik became caliph, he removed Isma`'il b. Hisha`m al-Makhzu`mi from office because of a previous enmity between them. He ordered him to be stood up before the people to take their rights from him. Isma`'il b. Hisha`m al-Makhzu`mi was very afraid of the Ima`m because he transgressed against him many times and mistreated him, so he said: 'I fear no one except 'Ali b. al-Husayn, for he is a righteous man, so the people will listen to his words concerning me.'

As for the Ima`m, he asked his companions and followers not to mistreat Isma`'il, and then he hurried to him smiled at him and said to him: 'Cousin, may Allah make you prosperous, what was done against you has displeased me and urged me to do what you love.' Isma`'il b. Hisha`m was astonished to hear these words of the Ima`m, thus he said with admiration: 'Allah knows better where to put His message."

( Hayat al-Imam al-Baqir, vol. 1, p. 35. Tabaqat b. Sa'd, vol. 5, p. 220).

Now, let's carefully listen and consider to his holy supplication for his enemies, and those who wronged him:

"O Allah, if any of Your servants should harm me in what You have forbidden or violated me in what You have interdicted, and if he should pass into death with my complaint or I come to have a complaint against him while he is alive, forgive him what he did to me and pardon him that through which he turned his back on me! Inquire not from him about what he committed toward me and expose him not through what he earned by me! Make my openhandedness in pardoning such servants and my contribution in charity toward them the purest charity of the charitable and the highest gift of those seeking nearness to You! Recompense me for my pardoning them with Your pardon and for my supplicating for them with Your mercy so that each one of us may gain felicity through Your bounty and each may attain deliverance through Your kindness!"(Al-Sahifa al-Sajjadiya, supplication no. 39).

Indeed, there is no one in the history of mankind similar to Ima`m Zayn al-'Abidin, peace be on him, except his grandfathers. In his behavior he represented a matchless world of honor, nobility, and humanity.

The Treatise on Rights

Among the most important works in the world of Islam is the 'Treatise on Rights' by the greatest Ima`m, Zayn al-'Abidin, peace be on him. In it the Ima`m has mentioned all the methods necessary for man's conduct, developing his life, and building his civilization on foundations which lead to tranquillity and protection from anxiety, disorder, and the like.

The wise Ima`m carefully and inclusively considered man, studied all the dimensions of his life, his relationships with his Creator, his soul, his family, his society, his government, his teacher, and so on. He wrote for man these rights and duties and made it incumbent on him to conform to them. Hence man is able to establish an Islamic society which believes in social justice and has strong ties such as mutual confidence, love, and other means necessary for social development and progress.
