We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

Language of God

" I came across a saying of Imam Ali (AS) and i was so inspired by the eloquence which reflected its peak, and the simplicity of the message yet its impact on the heart, that i decided to capture it in one of the propositions; this proposition.

We can do nothing what Allah does except for three things (which I could think of). This is not shirk and he can never be compared with anything existent for he is unparallel and someone like me may not be even able to define his Tauheed in clearest of words.

Returning to the topic, first thing is to recite the Quran. When one does so with comprehension, he is repeating the words of God and replicating his act.

The second thing is the sending of Durood. Quran (33:56) states that Allah and his angels bless the prophet. When we send the Durood and bless the prophet (and his progeny), it is a replication of the act of Allah.

The third thing which if we do is replicating the act of Allah, is when we are honest and speak the truth.

Imam Ali (AS) said, that Honesty is a divine language. How blessed is he who then speaks the language of God every day? "
