His protégé Noel is still the best ink artist in the prison, and their ment...

The Coming of Messiah in Glory and Majesty

By: Juan Josafat Ben Ezra

The coming of the Messiah.

ALL that I have to say to thee, my venerable friend Christophilus, reduces itself to the serious and formal examination of one single point; which, in the present constitution or system of the church and the world, appears to me of the highest importance; viz. Whether the ideas which we entertain concerning the coming of Messiah, that essential and fundamental article of our religion, be true and just ideas, faithfully drawn from the divine testimony, or not.

Kamiluz Ziyaraat : Merits and Method of Visiting Holy Tombs

By: الشيخ Ja’far Ibne Quluwayh Musa

In the long days and dark nights of occultation (ghaibat), neither our beloved prophet, Mohammad (s.a.w.a.) nor our Imam, Imam Vali-e-Asr (a.t.f.s) is present in our midst. The only way to quench the thirst of their recognition (ma'refat) and knowledge is through the treasure of books, which we have inherited from our great scholars. As it is narrated by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) - in the last era, the faith of the people will be based on 'black over white' i.e. book...

الايمان والعلم الحديث

By: Dr. محمد حسين الأديب

قامت بإعادة طبعة شعبة التراث الثقافي والديني في العتبة الحسينية المقدسة.

لقد استغل العلماء العلم بعيداً عن قوى الروح والقلب. فأعلوا من شأن العقل والعلم علواً كبيراً، وحكّموا العقل في القلب كما حكّموا العلم في الدين، فنتج عن ذلك ما تراه من فوضى خلقية، وحروب طاحنة رهيبة فاستأسرت الغرائز، واسرفت المطامع، فإذا آلة العلم تتجه نحو التدمير، والتخريب، والفتك، والتقتيل، حتى اصبحت القوة مقياس تقدم الأمة وعظمتها، ولو تدخل القلب، واتجهت آلة العلم نحو البناء والاثمار والخير والكمال لسمت المدنية، وارتفع شأن الإنسانية، ولسار العلم في خدمة الحياة وإعلاء مقامها.

كلمة لا بد منها كلمات السيد محمد حسين الطباطبائي... كيف كتبها؟. وكيف تؤثر في النفس؟. الكلمة ينبوع يفيض بالمعاني، لاسيما إذا كانت تحمل في طياتها معاني الحكمة. إن السيد الطباطبائي كان حينما يرسم الكلام يمسك ريشة الحقيقة، مع لون الإبداع؛ لتحيى المعاني بحروف النور، وتشرق بالطيف السامي في النفوس. ولما كانت الكلمة بذرة تنبت في القلوب لتحيى الروح بهيولانات العلم، أضحت حروفه غديرا. فلا سراب ولا جهل في كلماته التي هي حب وفضيلة ووطن تنبع من الوجود، ليبقى الوجود فيضا في ظل...
