K: Knowledge – Alphabet of Friendship

In shadows of ignorance, a soul departs,
Untouched by the light, where wisdom imparts.
“He who dies unknowing,” the decree is cast,
A death veiled in ignorance, a fate so vast.
Imam of the era, an unseen guide,
Yet unrecognized, in ignorance, they abide.
A death akin to the age of old,
In Jahiliyyah’s grip, a story untold.
Seek the Imam, the key to unfold,
Knowledge’s fragrance, a truth to be told.
In knowing’s embrace, a vibrant bloom,
Narcissus flower, breaking the gloom.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):
“Anyone who dies without knowing the Imam of his time will die the death of one belonging to Jahiliyyah (death of idol worshiper in preislamic era).”

رَسُولُ اَللَّهِ صَلَّى اَللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ آلِهِ

مَنْ ماتَ وَ لَمْ يَعْرِفْ إمامَ زَمانِهِ مَاتَ مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّة
