Hazar Imam's Birthday: A Time for Reflection on the Concept of the Present, Living Imam
Please reflect on the following ayat of the Holy Quran and Hadith about Imam-e-Mubin:
"Verily We, (and) We (alone) give life unto the dead, and We write down what they have sent before them and (even) their footprints (which they leave behind them): And everything have We confirmed into a *Manifesting Imam (Guide)."
(Holy Qur'an Surah Yasin:12, S.V. Mir Ahmed Ali's translation).
*Said the Holy Prophet: "He who died while he recognized not the Imam of the Age, certainly died he the death of ignorance."
(Note from Holy Qur'an, S.V. Mir Ahmed Ali's translation, page 1318).
Peace, Light, Barakat, Tayid, and Didar,
