Welcome to the alThaqalayn web site. Our goal is to propagate the precious words, and the rich culture, of the Noble Wilāyah for entire human race in the world.                                                                  One Lord (Allāh), One Dīn (Divinity), and One Wilāyah (World-Law).                                                                  Verily, I leave among you two invaluable things (ath-Thaqalyn): The Book of Allāh, and my household, my Ahl al-Bayt.

Imām al-Riḍā ▧:

May Allāh ◣ shower mercy upon an obedient who has revived our cause.  The Imām was asked “how could one revive your cause”?  He replied: by learning about our knowledge, and making it known to [other] people.  People would indeed follow us if they knew about the virtue of our words.

 Book No. 25, v.1, p.180

Imām al-Ḥusayn ▧:

Verily, the love of us, Ahl al- Bayt, sheds sins off an individual, just as a strong wind sheds leaves off the tree.

Book No. 3, v. 27, p. 77, h. 9, c. 4.

Imām al-Bāqir ▧:

A believer can escalate to highest degree of belief with prudent study of our narration.

Book No. 3, v. 1, p. 106, h. 2, c. 3.

Ḥaḍrat Fāṭimah Zahrā ▨:

We, Ahl al-Bayt, are the intermediaries in His Creation, we are His favourites, and the descending point of divinities, and we are His final Proof of His unseen world, and we are inheritors of His prophets.

The Fatimiyyeh Sahifah, p.174

Introduction

In the name of Allāh (j.j.), the Compassionate, the Merciful, peace and blessing be upon Muḥammadand his purified and charismatic progeny.  OAllāh! We pray for the immediate manifestation of imām al-Mahdi (عج) and for his good health, and victory.  Please put us together among the best of his followers, supporters, and companions.

 

With the grace of Allāh(j.j.), we have currently collected and computer-processed over 3,200 short narrations (aḥādith) which are selected from over 30 of the most reliable sources.  They are cataloged under some 130 different subjects.  Allāh(j.j.) willing, they will be gradually translated to English and included in this website.  When completed, the alThaqalaynwebsite will be an endless ocean of heavenly knowledge, narrated by the infallible Wilāyah.  The world is full of quotations delivered by famous personalities of the western societies, but definitely lacks the invaluable aḥādith of the heavenly purified Wilāyah, due to the political reasons.  We hope this work can help ending the scarceness of the most precious words of wisdom uttered by the fourteen infallible personalities for the entire human race.

 

This work is basically prepared for the world of English speaking population.  Therefore, all peripheral information such as bibliography, footnotes, biography, glossary, and so on, are presented in English.  The aḥādith, however, are presented in the original language for their blessing divine omen, as well as the authenticity.  They are additionally relished by the Farsi language, the second language in the world of Islam.  Not only this website contains short narrations (aḥādith) uttered by the Wilāyah, but also includes various material for general acquaintance with the benevolent personalities who gave utterance to these invaluable words of wisdom.

 

Allāh (j.j.) willing, we hope that this series, when completed, 1) can be used as a basis for translation to other languages, 2) can be used as a basis to generate an encyclopaedia of the Wilāyahin English and other languages, 3) last but not least, once this entire work is accomplished, we hope that the selected aḥādith will be explored and commented upon to clarify their deeper meanings, using the Signs (Āyāt) from the glorious Qur ān to fulfil the objectives of the noble declaration of Thaqalayn [i] :

Verily, I am leaving among you two precious things:

The Book of Allāh, and (the tradition of) my Household; my Ahl al-Bayt.


 

At this point we would like to expose the very significant hidden truth of the first word of wisdom presented in this collection which happens to be from imām ʿAli (a.s.), in Section 1, Intellect and Ignorance, ḥadith No. 1-01.  He says: People are enemies of what they are ignorant about.  This is certainly a fact that if people came to know about the real meaning of the Islam, its glorious Qurān, and its noble Wilāyah, they would indeed fall in love with them, and would become their followers.  In fact it is the unending divine glory of the Qurān and the Wilāyah, and the lack of proper knowledge about the virtue of these two heavily precious things (the Thaqalayn), that has caused so much obnoxious propaganda against Islam.  Imām Riḍā (a.s.)says:  People would indeed follow us if they knew about the virtue of our words.  Imām Bāqir (a.s.)says:  A believer can escalate to highest degree of belief with prudent study of our narrations.  And, this is the very aim of the alThaqalayn website.

 

At the end of this introduction we would like to mention that this website belongs to the divine saviour of this era, imām al-Qāim al-Mahdi ( عج ), whose noble manifestation shall guide the misguided to the Straight Path, dissolve all religious differences, and establish Almighty Allāhs universal government on earth, in a true sense of monotheism: One Allāh (j.j.), One dīn, One Book of Reference for One human nation, One Wilāyah, and One standard of Justice for all.  The gravity of the secular world order and its associated ugly and dreadful oppression and double standard calls urgently for the much needed noble manifestation of our saviour, and establishment of the unique heavenly government.  May Allāh (j.j.) accelerate the emergence of this munificent infallible holy personality.
