Imam Sadiq Online Seminary offers heartfelt felicitation on the Occasion of the 15th of the Holy Month of Ramadhan, the Birthday Anniversary of Imam Hasan al-Mujtaba (the Selected one)


 One of the consequences of being away from the teaching of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) is that we tend to take our concepts from fallible sources and thereby end up committing mistakes or embarking on a journey which doesn’t yield the intended result. On this beautiful day, lets read through a few definitions and concepts provided by Imam Hasan peace be upon him

 Amir al-Mu'minin (peace be upon him) asked his son Hasan (peace be upon him): "O my son, what is righteousness?"
