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

ḥadith:

The Arabic word ḥadith means narration, quotation, tradition, maxim, or statement.  Lexically, ḥadith refers to new and also to event (such as" احداث " and " حدوث " ).  If sometimes we find minor differences in various narrations and traditions, by the Wilāyah , it is due to various circumstances, especially different addressees, but also due to different times, locations, and other conditions.  Generally speaking, ʼAḥādith, inspired from the Unique Divine Being, are for the sake of guidance (hidāyah هداية) of people.  There are three types of ḥadith:  ḥadith Qudsi (Words of Allāh (J.J.)), ḥadith nabawi (words of the prophet (ph&hp)), and ḥadith wilāī (words of the Ahl al-Bayt (a.s.)).

 

 

Unithetically, ḥadith resembles heading.  Semantically, it refers to guiding in English.  It also resembles hidayat in Farsi and Arabic, with the same meaning of guidance.
