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

Allāh

Allāh (J.J.) is the Unique Paramount Divine Being, the Source of all other beings in all worlds and in all times.  Therefore, none of the words God (English), or Gott (German), or Khudā (Farsi), or other similar words [I] in other languages are equivalent of Allāh.  First, neither one of them are unique (consider, for example, gods, goddesses, Khudāyān, etc.), and second, they lack a definite article (the).  Anything unique must have definite article such as the sun, the moon, and the universe.  Therefore, even if the English word, God, were to be used, we shall say The God in order to reflect the Uniqueness and the Unity of the One and Only Paramount Divine Being .


He is the One and Only, the Compassionate, the Merciful, in His Pure, Unique, Eternal, and Absolute sense.  The One to Whom all depend, and the One to Whom no gods or goddesses are associated.  ...  He begets not, nor is He begotten, and there is not a single one to equate with Him, according to the last āyah of Sūrah al-Ikhlāṣ (No. 112)

 

Unithetically, it is very interesting to realise that if major prophets of Allāh called their Creator Aloha , Elijah , Jehovah , Alāhā , or Allāh , it is because of their different mother tongues and different pronunciations, not because each one of them had a different creator.  If Muslims prefer to use the word Allāh instead of God, it is not a matter of prejudice.  It is simply because they cannot find any other word to reflect all aspects and dimensions of the Unique Allāh (J.J.).



[I] - Unithetically, these three words Gott, God, and Khuda resemble one another.  Consider, also, Aḥad in Arabic, ḥād and ’Iḥād in Arāmāic and Hebrew.
