Importance of Imam Reza
Some body from this IP posted this comment on Talk:Ali ar-Ridha:
A very respected scholar of Shia religion recently noted that, imam reza is not one of the holiest and perhaps emphasised for misled interests. He noted that a man such as khoemini, who inspired a revolution, who was highly knowledgable about the faith, never once visited mashad imam reza's shrine.just my two cents about this, i think the site has historical, religious significance but it is perhaps exaggerated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:20, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
- I think you need to clear your fundamentals. If you are a Muslim, a Shia & a Athna-Ashari then you may have heard hadeeth "Aw'wal'na Muhammads.a.w.a. ... Kulllana Muhammads.a.w.a.". Reason of imphasis on Imam Musa al-Rezaa.s. is due to the fact that he is the only Imam who is buried in a land where Shia have been in majority and power for very long so its easily ascessible for ziyarat and envoironment is favourable and friendly. You can't even think of reciting a Fateha at tomb of Prophets.a.w.a. save Aa'im'maa.s. in Saudi Arabia and in Iraq everybody is aware of conditions since decades. Regarding Aqa'e Khumaini(this fact is beyond my drop of knowledge) I'll say that Imam Hasan Askaria.s. never went for Hajj in physical form and going or avoiding of some Ulema to a place does not change its importance. Imam Musa al-Rezaa.s. importance is same as other Imams from Imam Alia.s. to Imam Mahdia.s. (they all are one and same in virtues and deeds).
- I hope that you will not be satisfied by my reply/explanation, you are welcome to my talk page for further discussions(if willing).
