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

Masjid al-Aqsaa

Al-Aqsaa Mosque also known as Al-Aqsaa and Bayt ul-Muqaddas, is the third holiest site in Islam and is located in the Old City of Jerusalem. The site on which this silver-domed mosque sits, along with the “Dome of the Rock”, is referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif ("the Noble Sanctuary"). 

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, refers to the al-Aqsaa Mosque as the third holiest site in Islam (and calls for Arab sovereignty over it).

The Glorious Qur’an clarifies that Prophet Muhammad (ph&hp) was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Makkah to al-Aqsaa Mosque (in Al-Quds) during the well-known miraculous “Night Journey”:

Absolute Pure is the One Who took His devoted worshipper [Prophet Muhammad] for a Divine Excursion from Masjid-al-Haram to Masjid-al-Aqsaa, the neighborhood of which We have blessed, in order to show him Our Signs of Power.  Indeed Allah is the Seeing Hearer.

Surah Isra (17), Ayah 1

In Islam, the term "al-Aqsaa Mosque" refers to the entire Noble Sanctuary. This mosque is the second house of prayer constructed after the Masjid al-Haraam in Makkah.

The historical significance of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Islam is further emphasized by the fact that it was the first Qiblah of Muslims.  They faced al-Aqsaa Mosque during their prayers until Prophet Muhammad (ph&hp) received revelation by Allah to turn towards Ka’ba (in Makkah) instead of Masjid ul-Aqsaa in Al-Quds (Ayah 144, Surah Al-Baqarah (2)).
