The holy Imam 'Ali Zaynu 'l-'Abidin is the Fourth Apostolic Imam. His epithet was Abu Muhammad and was popularly titled as "Zaynu'l-'Abidin". The mother of this Holy Imam was the royal personage, Shahr Banu, the daughter of King Yazdgerd, the last pre-Islamic Ruler of Persia. Imam Zaynu'l-'Abidin spent the first two years of his infancy in the lap of his grandfather 'All ibn Abi Talib and then for twelve years he had the gracious patronage of his uncle, the second Holy Imam al-Hasan ibn 'All. In 61 AH, he was present in Karbala', at the time of the gruesome tragedy of the wholesale massacre of his father, his uncles, his brothers, his cousins and all the godly comrades of his father; and suffered a heartless captivity and imprisonment at the hands of the devilish forces of Yazid. When Imam Husayn had come for the last time to his camp to bid goodbye to his family, 'Ali Zaynu 'l-'Abidin was lying semiconscious in his sickbed and hence he escaped the massacre inKarbala'. Imam Husayn could only manage a very brief talk with the inmates of his camp and departed nominating his sick son as Imam.
The Holy Imam Zaynu'l-'Abidin lived for about thirty-four years after his father and all his life he passed in prayers and supplication to Allah and in remembrance of his martyred father. It is for his ever being in prayers to Allah, mostly lying in prayerful prostration, that this Holy Imam was popularly called "Sajjad". The knowledge and piety of this Holy Imam was matchless. az-Zuhrl, al-Waqid; and Ibn 'Uyaynah say that they could not find any one equal to him in piety and godliness. He was so mindful of Allah that whenever he sat for ablution for prayers, the complexion of his face would change and when he stood at prayer his body was seen trembling. When asked why this was, he replied, "Know ye not before whom I stand in prayer, and with whom I hold discourse?"
Even on the gruesome day of 'Ashura when Yazid's forces had massacred his father, his kith and kin and his comrades and had set fire to the camp, this Holy Imam was engrossed in his supplications to the Lord. When the brutal forces of Yazid's army had taken the ladies and children as captives, carrying them seated on the bare back of the camels, tied in ropes; this Holy Imam, though sick, was put in heavy chains with iron rings round his neck and his ankles, and was made to walk barefooted on the thorny plains from Karbala' to Kufah and to Damascus; and even then this godly soul never was unmindful of his prayers to the Lord and was always thankful and supplicative to Him. His charity was unassuming and hidden. After his passing away, the people said that hidden charity ended with the departure of this Holy Imam. Like his grand-father 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, 'Ali Zaynu'l-'Abidin used to carry on his own back at night bags of flour and bread for the poor and needy families in Medina and he so maintained hundred of poor families in the city.
The Holy Imam was not only hospitable even to his enemies but also used to continually exhort them to the right path. Imam Zaynu 'l-'Abidin along with the Ahlu 'I-Bayt passed through dreadful and very dangerous times, for the aggressions and atrocities of the tyrant rulers of the age had reached a climax. There was plunder, pillage, and murder everywhere. The teachings of Islam were observed more in their breach. The heartless tyrant al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf ath-Thaqaf; was threatening every one who professed allegiance or devotion to the Ahlu 'I-Bayt; and those caught were mercilessly put to death. The movement of the Holy Imam was strictly restricted and his meeting with any person was totally banned. Spies were employed to trace out the adherents of the Ahlu 'I-Bayt. Practically every house was searched and every family scrutinized.
Imam Zaynu 'l-'Abidin was not given the time to offer his prayers peacefully, nor could he deliver any sermons. This God's Vicegerent on earth therefore, adopted a third course which proved to be very beneficial to his followers. This was in compiling supplicative prayers for the daily use of man in his endeavour to approach the Almighty Lord. The invaluable collection of his edited prayers are known as as-Sahifah al-Kdmilah or as-Sahifah as-Sajjddiyyah; it is known also as az-Zabur (Psalm) of Al Muhammad The collection is an invaluable treasury of wonderfully effective supplications to the Lord in inimitably beautiful language. Only those who have ever come across those supplications would know the excellence and the beneficial effect of these prayers. Through these prayers the Imam gave all the necessary guidance to the faithful during his seclusion. On the 25th of Muharram 95 AH when he was in Medina, al-Walid ibn 'Abdi 'l-Malik ibn Marwan, the then ruler got this Holy Imam martyred by poison. The funeral prayers for this Holy Imam were conducted by his son the Fifth Imam, Muhammad al-Baqir and his body was laid to rest in the cemetery of Jannatu 'l-Baqi' in Medina.

Allamah Tabatabai writes:
Imam Sajjad ('Ali ibn al-Husayn entitled Zaynu'l-'Abidin and Sajjad) was the son of the Third Imam and his wife, the queen among women, the daughter of Yazdgerd the King of Iran. IIe was the only son of Imam Husayn to survive, for his other three brothers 'Ali Akbar, aged twenty-five, five-year-old Ja'far and 'Ali al-Asghar (or 'Abdullah) who was a suckling baby were martyred during the event of Karbala'. The Imam had also accompanied his father on the journey that terminated fatally in Karbala', but because of severe illness and the inability to carry arms or participate in fighting he was prevented from taking part in the holy war and being martyred. So he was sent with the womenfolk to Damascus. After spending a period in imprisonment he was sent with honour to Medina because Yazid wanted to conciliate public opinion. But for a second time, by the order of the Umayyad caliph, 'Abdu 'l-Malik, he was chained and sent from Medina toDamascus and then again returned to Medina. The Fourth Imam, upon returning to Medina, retired from public life completely, closed the door of his house to strangers and spent his time in worship. He was in con- tact only with the elite among the Shi'ites such as Abu Hamzah ath-Thumali, Abu Khalid Kabuli and the like. The elite disseminated among the Shi'ah the religious sciences they learned from the Imam. In this way Shi'ism spread considerably and showed its effects during the Imamate of the Fifth Imam. Among the works of the Fourth Imam is a book called Sahifah Sajjadiyyah. It consists of fifty-seven prayers concerning the most sublime Divine sciences and is known as "The Psalm of the Household of the Prophet." The Fourth Imam died (according to some Shl'ite traditions poisoned by al-Walid ibn 'Abdi 'l-Malik ibn Marwan through the instigation of the Umayyad caliph Hisham) in 95/712 after thirty-five years of Imamate.
al-Imam 'Ali ibn al-Husayn, peace be Upon him, said:
Refrain from lying in all things, big or small, in seriousness or in jest. For when one starts lying in petty matters, soon he will have the audacity to lie in important matters (also).
A man need not fear Allah except on account of his own sins, and should place his hopes only with his Lord. When about something one does not know, one should not be ashamed of having to learn about it. And patience is to faith what the head is to the body; one who does not have patience also lacks faith.

Tidak tahan dengan soalan hadirin;

 Sesi soal jawab ceramah anti-Syiah terpaksa 

Sesi soal jawab ceramah anti-Syiah terpaksa dihentikandihentikan 

 Agensi Berita Ahlul Bait ( - Hasrat seorang penceramah memfitnah mazhab Syiah menemui kegagalan apabila sesi soal jawab ditutup sekaligus meragukan orang ramai terhadap isi kandungan ceramahnya.

Ahmad Nasim Abdul Rauf, dikatakan memberikan ceramah selama dua jam di Masjid Daerah Seberang Perai Utara pada 15 Jun lalu untuk mengkafirkan mazhab Syiah.

Akibat tidak tahan dengan soalan yang ingin dikemukakan oleh para hadirin, sesi soal jawab terpaksa dihentikan oleh pihak masjid atas alasan belum menunaikan solat Isya. Malangnya penceramah dikatakan melarikan diri tanpa menunaikan solat terlebih dahulu setelah terpukul malu dan tidak bersedia menghadapi kritikan.

Masyarakat awam yang menghadiri program ceramah anti-Syiah selalunya meragui kempen muballigh Wahabi apabila para hadirin tidak diizinkan mengaju soalan mereka.

Golongan Wahabi al-mujassimah giat menganjurkan berbagai aktiviti anti-Syiah seperti seminar, ceramah, mengedarkan buku untuk dengan memperalatkan masjid menarik simpati orang ramai terhadap persepsi mereka terhadap Syiah sekaligus ingin menerapkan kepercayaan Allah berjisim di dalam masyarakat.

Antara akidah sesat yang dipegang oleh golongan Wahabi ialah Allah (s.w.t) berupa seorang pemuda dan berambut kerinting.
Tugas Media Islam Saat Ini Semakin Berat
Ayatullah Husaini Busyehri:

Tugas Media Islam Saat Ini Semakin Berat

"Sebagai Syiah Ahlul Bait kita harus tegar dan sabar dalam menghadapi berbagai kezaliman musuh. Dan diantara bentuk perlawanan umat Syiah dalam menghadapi mereka adalah memanfaatkan media-media berita. Media-media tersebut dapat digunakan untuk menjawab syubhat-syubhat dan fitnah-fitnah yang mereka lontarkan atas Syiah dan juga untuk mengungkap dan membongkar kebusukan-kebusukan konspirasi mereka dalam menghalangi-halangi manusia untuk mendapatkan dakwah suci ini." 

 Menurut Kantor Berita ABNA, Ayatullah Sayyid Hasyim Husaini Busyahri rabu (20/6) dalam pertemuan peresmian Kantor Berita ABNA berbahasa Myanmar menyatakan, "Terbentuknya media berita Ahlul Bait dalam berbagai bahasa sangat penting dan merupakan wasilah dakwah sehingga pesan-pesan Ahlul Bait dapat lebih banyak menjangkau lapisan masyarakat dari berbagai negara."

Dalam kesempatan pertemuan tersebut beliau lebih lanjut menyatakan, "Sebagai Syiah Ahlul Bait kita harus tegar dan sabar dalam menghadapi berbagai kezaliman musuh. Dan diantara bentuk perlawanan umat Syiah dalam menghadapi mereka adalah memanfaatkan media-media berita. Media-media tersebut dapat digunakan untuk menjawab syubhat-syubhat dan fitnah-fitnah yang mereka lontarkan atas Syiah dan juga untuk mengungkap dan membongkar kebusukan-kebusukan konspirasi mereka dalam menghalangi-halangi manusia untuk mendapatkan dakwah suci ini. Karenanya tugas media Islam saat ini semakin berat, bukan hanya sekedar berdakwah namun juga harus menjawab tudingan-tudingan negatif yang dilontarkan musuh."

Ulama yang juga menjabat sebagai pengurus Dewan Pers dan Media Berita Rahbar tersebut selanjutnya menukil sebuah hadits dari Rasulullah saww yang bersabda, "Barangsiapa yang mendengar jeritan permintaan tolong seorang muslim dan kemudian tidak menjawab dan membantunya, maka dia bukan muslim." "Hadits Nabi tersebut menegaskan diantara karakter keislaman seorang muslim, adalah membantu saudaranya seagama yang mengalami musibah dan sedang terzalimi. Kantor Berita ABNA setahu saya sementara mengusung misi tersebut. Yaitu mengabarkan kondisi kaum muslimin yang teraniaya dan tertindas di negeri-negeri mereka sendiri untuk diketahui kaum muslimin di seluruh dunia. Khususnya ketertindasan umat Syiah di Pakistan, Bahrain dan dinegara-negara lainnya yang umat Syiah merupakan minoritas di negara tersebut." Ungkapnya.

Ayatullah Husaini Busyahri kemudian menyebutkan bahwa tujuan utama terbentuknya Majma Jahani Ahlul Bait yang Kantor Berita ABNA termasuk di dalamnya adalah menyampaikan pesan-pesan suci Ahlul Bait as ke seluruh dunia. "Salah satu peran penting dari kantor berita adalah menyampaikan informasi dan berita kepada khalayak yang dengan itu mereka lebih mengenal zaman dan tempatnya. Saat ini bukan sekedar kebutuhan material yang dibutuhkan umat, melainkan juga informasi yang sehat, pengetahuan dan ilmu-ilmu keagamaan untuk menghilangkan rasa dahaga spritualitas mereka."

Pada bagian lain sambutannya, ulama yang juga merupakan anggota Jami'ah Mudarrisin Hauzah Ilmiyah Qom tersebut menekankan pentingnya persatuan umat Islam saat ini. "Kita memiliki dua organisasi besar dan penting, Taqrib Mazahib dan Majma Jahani Ahlul Bait, yang satu sama lain saling menguatkan. Ini menunjukkan bahwa kita muslim Syiah bukan sekedar membela hak-hak syiah namun juga tidak pernah mengizinkan musuh-musuh Islam merusak persatuan kaum muslimin dan menciptakan permusuhan antar sesama muslim." Jelasnya.
"Pihak musuh saat ini memanfaatkan media untuk menyerang negara-negara muslim dengan membentuk opini negatif. Mereka secara gencar melakukan propaganda yang dapat merusak persatuan kita dan menimbulkan kecurigaan sesama muslim. Karenanya kebutuhan media untuk membendung dan menjawab tudingan-tudingan mereka sangat diperlukan dan merupakan kebutuhan yang sangat mendesak. Harus ada informasi yang benar dan berimbang yang sampai ke masyarakat. Dan saya menilai Kantor Berita ABNA, telah menjalankan fungsi persnya dengan baik." Lanjutnya kemudian. 
Dipenghujung pembicaraannya, Ayatullah Husaini Busyahri menukil hadits dari Imam Ridha as yang mengharap kepada Allah SWT agar memberikan rahmat kepada siapa saja yang mempelajari ilmu-ilmu yang diajarkan Ahlul Bait lalu kemudian menyampaikannya kepada masyarakat.

The grand Ayatollah urged Muslims not to be silent and make a move to support Bahrainis’ rights.

“Because of the extremist acts perpetrated by Al-Khalifa and Al-Saoud, a fake and harsh image of Islam is projected to the World,”  Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani said.

Qom seminary instructor pointed to the spread of Islamic Awakening and said,” the wave will reach to Saudi Arabia and the collapse of these regimes is imminent and impending.”

The senior cleric pointed to the role of Islamic Republic of Iran in the Islamic Awakening and said,” the wave of Islamic Awakening spread on account of Islamic Revolution of Iran.”

“Sooner or later what happened to [the former Iranian regime] Pahlavi King, will occur to Al-Khalifa and Al-Saoud,” Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani concluded.
