Seeking of Desires
Allah the Almighty has appointed the infallible
Imams (a.s.) as the media and doors for approaching
Him. Presently, Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) is that door
through whom Allah is approached. The Holy Quran
"And all the good names are for Allah, then
call Him through them."
(Surah A'raaf: 18)
In the interpretation of this verse, traditions say that
good names in the verse implies the infallible Imams
(a.s.) and that we should call Allah through them.
(Al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 618, H.2)
Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) is the Door of Allah and
His Name. If we plead to Allah through this all-important
medium, our supplications will be accepted. Besides, it is
the sincere desire of every father or every elder that the
youngsters of the family approach him for their needs
and that he fulfils them. Particularly, when he is in a
position of power and authority. The elders feel great joy
in fulfilling the needs of the youngsters.
Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) is our father, elder and
the master of all bounties. Today, it is an important duty
for us that we present our difficulties to him for their
Unfortunately, we speak of our problems to
everybody but to that Imam who is able to provide its
remedies within no time.
