G: Generosity – Alphabet of Friendship

How beautiful is your generosity?
For even in occultation, you remember your lovers and extend for them your prayers,
Hidden behind the clouds,
How much at a loss are we? Deprived of your physical presence…
But, I sincerely pray,
We are able to recognise your efforts for the believers,
And the care you give even without our acknowledgement and thankfulness…
Can we truly fulfil your rights over us?
Have we recognised these rights you hold, as our master?
Have we embodied the traits of nobility that you possess?
And are we adhering to your path, in your absence?

Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him):
“And as for benefiting from me during my occultation, it is like benefiting from the sun when the clouds veil it from sight.”

Kamal al-Din wa Tamam al-Ni’ma; Ibn Babawayh, Muhammad ibn Ali, Volume 2, p. 483.

الامام المهدی عليه السلام

وَ أَمَّا وَجْهُ الِانْتِفَاعِ بِي فِي غَيْبَتِي فَكَالانْتِفَاعِ بِالشَّمْسِ إِذَا غَيَّبَتْهَا عَنِ الْأَبْصَارِ السَّحَابُ
