How To Write Letter To Our Master, The Leader Of The Time (Peace Be Upon Him)


Writing letter to Imam is among the effected means and it has tremendous and surprising effects, because our master as it was narrated is strongly pitiful to his well-wishers. I have personally in several occasions written letter to him (peace be upon him) and I saw a tremendous and surprising effect.




How to Write Letter to Our Master, The Leader of The Time (peace be upon him)




Write all that we shall mention and drop it in any of the tomb of the Imams (peace be on them) or you wrap it and cover it with pure soil and drop it there, or you throw it into a river or deep well or into a pond of water, surely it shall reach the leader of the time peace be on him, he shall personally take control of your demands.




Write the following:

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ




كَتَبْتُ يَا مَوْلَايَ صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ عَلَيْكَ مُسْتَغِيْثًا، وَشَكَوْتُ مَا نَزَلَ بِيْ مُسْتَجِيْرًا بِاللهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ، ثُمَّ بِكَ مِنْ اَمْرٍ قَدْ دَهَمَنِيْ، وَاَشْغَلَ قَلْبِيْ، وَاَطَالَ فِكْرِيْ، وَسَلَبَنِيْ بَعْضَ  لُبِّيْ، وَغَيَّرَ خَطِيْرَ نِعْمَةِ اللهِ عِنْدِيْ، اَسْلَمَنِيْ عِنْدَ تَخَيُّلِ  وُرُوْدِهِ الْخَلِيْلُ، وَتَبَرَّاَ مِنِّيْ عِنْدَ تَرَاۤئِيْ اِقْبَالِهِ اِلَيَّ الْحَمِيْمُ، وَعَجَزَتْ عَنْ دِفَاعِهِ حِيْلَتِيْ، وَخَانَنِيْ فِيْ تَحَمُّلِهِ صَبْرِيْ  وَقُوَّتِيْ۔




فَلَجَاْتُ فِيْهِ اِلَيْكَ، وَتَوَكَّلْتُ فِي الْمَسْاَلَةِ للهِ جَلَّ ثَنَاۤؤُهُ  عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْكَ  فِيْ دِفَاعِهِ عَنِّيْ، عِلْمًا بِمَكَانِكَ مِنَ اللهِ رَبِّ  الْعَالَمِيْنَ، وَلِيِّ التَّدْبِيْرِ وَمَالِكِ الْاُمُوْرِ، وَاثِقًا بِكَ فِي  الْمُسَارَعَةِ فِي الشَّفَاعَةِ اِلَيْهِ جَلَّ ثَنَاۤؤُهُ فِيْ اَمْرِيْ، مُتَيَقِّنًا لِاِجَابَتِهِ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالٰى اِيَّاكَ بِاِعْطَاۤئِيْ سُؤْلِيْ۔




وَاَنْتَ يَا مَوْلَايَ جَدِيْرٌ بِتَحْقِيْقِ ظَنِّيْ، وَتَصْدِيْقِ اَمَلِيْ  فِيْكَ، فِيْ اَمْرِ كَذَا وَكَذَا



(You mention your needs)

فِيْمَا لَا طَاقَةَ لِيْ بِحَمْلِهِ، وَلَا صَبْرَ لِيْ عَلَيْهِ، وَاِنْ كُنْتُ مُسْتَحِقًّا  لَهُ وَلِاَضْعَافِهِ بِقَبِيْحِ  اَفْعَالِيْ، وَتَفْرِيْطِيْ فِي الْوَاجِبَاتِ الَّتِي للهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ۔




فَاَغِثْنِيْ يَا مَوْلَايَ صَلَوَاتُ اللهِ عَلَيْكَ عِنْدَ اللَّهْفِ، وَقَدِّمِ الْمَسْاَلَةَ للهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ فِيْ اَمْرِيْ، قَبْلَ حُلُوْلِ التَّلَفِ، وَشَمَاتَةِ الْاَعْدَاۤءِ، فَبِكَ بُسِطَتِ النِّعْمَةُ عَلَيَّ۔




وَاَسْاَلِ اللهَ جَلَّ جَلَالُهُ لِيْ نَصْرًا عَزِيْزًا، وَفَتْحًا قَرِيْبًا، فِيْهِ بُلُوْغُ الْاٰمَالِ، وَخَيْرُ الْمَبَادِيْ، وَخَوَاتِيْمُ الْاَعْمَالِ، وَالْاَمْنُ مِنَ الْمَخَاوِفِ كُلِّهَا فِيْ كُلِّ حَالٍ، اِنَّهُ جَلَّ ثَنَاۤؤُهُ لِمَا يَشَاۤءُ فَعَّالٌ، وَهُوَ حَسْبِيْ وَنِعْمَ الْوَكِيْلُ فِي الْمَبْدَءِ وَالْمَالِ۔



Then you intend going to the river or any deep valley and rely on some of the doors, like the door of Uthman son of Sayyid Al-Amri, or the door of his son, Muhammad bn Uthman, or Al-Husein bn Ruh or Ali bn Muhammad Assamari (may Allah be pleased with them). Those are the doors of Imam Al-Mahdi (may Allah's blessing be upon him) you mention one of them when intending throwing the letter and say the following

يَا فُلَانَ بْنَ فُلَانٍ سَلَامٌ عَلَيْكَ، اَشْهَدُ اَنَّ وَفَاتَكَ فِيْ  سَبِيْلِ اللهِ، وَاَنَّكَ حَيٌّ عِنْدَ اللهِ مَرْزُوْقٌ، وَقَدْ خَاطَبْتُكَ فِيْ حَيَاتِكَ الَّتِيْ لَكَ عِنْدَ اللهِ جَلَّ وَعَزَّ، وَهٰذِهِ رُقْعَتِيْ وَحَاجَتِيْ اِلٰى مَوْلَانَا عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ، فَسَلِّمْهَا اِلَيْهِ، فَاَنْتَ الثِّقَةُ الْاَمِيْنُ۔



Then you throw it into a river or a deep well or pond, your request will be granted by Allah's wishes.[1]




Allamah Majlisi included after his saying "then throw it in to a river " you imagine as if you are delivering it to him, it shall reach him and your request shall be granted by Allah's wish.[2]




A narrator by name Nuri said: it can be deduced from this noble tradition that these four great noble men who are the intermediaries between him and his followers during the lesser occultation do take people's request to him and deliver their answers back to them, they also maintain the same position during the longer occultation.




From this direction we can understand that Imam's table of goodness, openhandedness, generosity, favour and benefaction (peace be upon him) is spread to every spot of this Earth for those that are weak, those that are in difficulties and for those that are roaming about without getting the right path and so on.




When an ignorant person requested from him, he shall drink from his noble knowledge, if one loses his ways, he shall guide him to his way, when one is sick, he shall wear him the cloth of healthiness as it was clearly stated from the beginning.




The out come in this respect is that the leader of the time (may our souls be sacrifice for him) is present between the servants and overlook his followers, and he is able to detect afflictions and he is acquainted with all hidden and secrets, he did not secluded himself from his position due to his occultation.
