The King of Khorasan
Imam Reza (pbuh) was born on the 11th of Dhiqaadah in 148 AH in Medina.
He is the eighth Imam of Shiites and his father is Imam Musa Kazem (PBUH)
and the name of his mother is Najmi khatoon.
Befor going to Marve, he was in Medina to guide people based on religion and tradition
of Holy Prophet(pbuh). His followers in Medina loved him too much in used to obey his orders.
During 20 years, he was Imam that he spent 3 last years in Khorasan.
He had to go there by Mamoon plot and eventually he was killed in the age of 55 by the hands of Mamoon.
During the Imam’s way to Merve, wherever they stopped, there were many people of that area. For example, when the Imam entered Neishabour, many people who had heard about the arrival of the Imam in Neishabour all welcomed the Imam. At this time, two scholars and memorizers of the Prophetic Hadith, along with countless groups of scholars and scholars of hadith and wisdom, took control of the compound and said: O Messenger of God, tell us about the ancestors and the Messenger of God and tell us the hadith. The Imam ordered to stop and the people gathered around him to listen the Hadith.
《کَلِمَةُ لا إلهَ إلّا اللّهُ حِصنی فَمَن دَخَلَ حِصنی اَمِنَ مِن عَذابی بِشُروطِها وَ أنَا مِن شُروطِها》
The word “there is no god but Allah, this is the fence (God), so whoever enters my fence will be safe from my torment, and there is the condition and I (Ali ibn Musa al-Reza) I am one of those conditions.
This is《حدیث سلسلة الذَهَب》that means…it is narrated by his ancestors.
This hadith indicates that one of the conditions for acknowledging monotheism words, which is one of the principles of monotheism in religion, is to acknowledge the Imamate of that Imam and to obey and accept the speech and behavior of the Imam, which is determined by God Almighty. In fact, the Imam considers the condition of liberation from divine punishment to be monotheism and the condition of monotheism to accept guardianship and Imamate.
It means we should obeys our Imams to worship Allah then we can be safe.
In the time of Imam Reza(pbuh), he was the safe fence and now, who is our safe fence?
Imam Mahdi(pbuh) is the condition and safe fence.
All the time we should be beside him and obey him.
O’ my king
If I have you, I will have every thing…
