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

Salām is one of the derivatives of the Arabic root S-L-M, and denotes peace, tranquillity, salutation, accord and harmony with those around us, and resignation stemming from satisfaction.  It also means physical, mental, and spiritual health, and total immunity from any harm, injury, and damage.  The word Islām is also derived from the same root, meaning total submission to the will of Allāh (J.J.).  Most importantly, as-Salām is one of His Beautiful Glorious Names (Attributes).  Thus, by extending salām to someone, not only we greet him with honour and respect, but also we wish him peace, harmony, immunity, satisfaction, and total health.  Leave alone the reminiscence of the Beautiful Name of our Creator, which has its own grace and blessings.


Unithetically, salām resembles English words so-long, solemn, asylum to Allāh, and the Hebrew word Shālom.  The city of Jerusalem (Dār us-Salām, in Arabic)[I] means The House of Peace and immunity which is unfortunately occupied by the most arrogant of this era, and is converted to the House of ugly genocide instead of “gratifying peace, for the time being.

[I] - The old and the original Dār us-Salām.  It also mean the House of Allāh.  Please refer to Dār us-Salām in this Glossary.
