Research by Your Own Self & Know the Truth

From Ahmed Al-Hassan Wiki


It is upon every person to carefully investigate the path which leads them to God.

We say: Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) is the Qaim of the Family of Muhammad (as), and the leader of the Black Banners of the East.

But it is upon the believer himself to investigate the matter and return to God.

Whoever is denying or mocking the newly revealed knowledge of the Imam (as)...
Did you research and investigate by your own self first about the proofs of the Call of Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as)?
Did you ask God about him (as) before you make fun of his (as) words?
The Quran says: {And now they reject the truth when it reaches them: but soon shall they learn the reality of what they used to mock at.} – Sura Al-An'am 6:5

"We do not call anyone to believe with ignorance, without awareness or knowing.
Research and scrutinize in our matter and in our Call.
I do not want anyone to enter into this Call without knowledge or awareness or research."
– Imam Ahmed alHassan a.s the leader of the blessed Black Banners of the East; Aba Abdullah alHussein a.s in his Return

"Search​ ​for​ ​your​ ​religion​ ​until​ ​it​ ​is​ ​said​ ​about​ ​you​ ​"crazy."
and​ ​I​ ​tell​ ​you​ ​search​ ​for​ ​your​ ​religion​ ​until​ ​it​ ​is​ ​said​ ​about​ ​you​ ​"infidel." - A​ ​saying​ ​from ​Ahmad​ ​Al-Hassan​ ​peace​ ​be​ ​upon​ ​him

Allah (swt) says in the Holy Qur'an:
{O you who have believed, if there comes to you an immoral/ disobedient one with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful}. [49:6]

But how would the truthful call be distinguished from the false one?

From Abdur Rahman bin Muslima that he said: "I said to Abu Abdullah Imam Sadiq (a.s.):
"Sunni blame us and ask how the truthful call would be distinguished from the false one when they both occur?"
He said: "What do you answer them?"
I said: "Nothing."
He said: "Say to them: He, who has believed in them before they occur, will know which of them is true and which is false.
Allah has said: {Is He then Who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed, or he who himself does not go aright unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you; how do you judge?} [Surah Yunus 10:35]"

Imam Ali (as) said...
"Know the Truth and you shall know its people." - Imam Ali

Ahmed Al-Hassan wants people to recognize the truth themselves

Throughout this dawah Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan has clarified many times, that he is not looking for blind followers, and warned people to use their own minds, so they do not wrong their own selves or oppress others...
His warnings show clearly that he does not care for fame or power, nor a crowd that claps for him-
rather he encourage everyone to find the truth themselves.

I have not told anyone to follow me blindly

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan has said:

"I, and I seek refuge from the I, have not told anyone to follow me blindly,
rather, I say open your eyes and distinguish the proof,
and know the companion of the truth,
in order that you may save yourself from hell fire."

Read, research, scrutinize, learn, and know the truth by your own selves

And he (pbuh) says:

"O people, do not be fooled by the scholars of misguidance and their supporters.
Read, research, scrutinize, learn, and know the truth by your own selves
Do not depend on someone to decide your hereafter for you
thus you regret it tomorrow when no regret shall benefit you
{And they said, O our Lord, we have obeyed our masters and leaders so they have led us astray}."

Research by your own self and know the truth

When you read the following Paltalk transcript of a session with Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) you will see one more time that he (as) does not want people to be misguided, but rather wants them to find the truth themselves....

Someone asked Brother Alrayt Alsud: Are you sure of the truthfulness of your companion Ahmed Al Hassan, that he is the Yamani and can swear upon that?

So he asked the Imam (a.s) if he allowed him.

So The Imam (a.s) said: And would you believe him if he swears?
The Imam (a.s) said to the guest: But I call you to not depend on the swear of someone other than you, and research by your own self and know the truth.

Before this the Guest asked brother Alrayt Alsud to do the swear of innocence, brother Alrayt Alsud asked permission from the Imam (a.s).

So the Imam (a.s) said: Go ahead O’Jafar.

Go ​and ​research ​with ​the ​mind and ​not ​with ​the ​heart

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) said to someone who asked him a question about Taqlid on Paltalk:

"I fear for you and others than you from speaking.
Go and research with the mind and not with the heart.
Did you understand what I mean by the mind?"

- Q&A from 02.12.2017 with Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan & Aba Sadiq (as)

Verify and become certain

"Do not judge a matter before you are absolutely certain of it, so that you do not fall into confusions or oppress anyone in your life.
Do not judge before you verify and the matter becomes certain (Yaqeen) for you.
If you see that in your work there is goodness for the Dawa, then work.
And if you see that in your work there is lying about Allah and His messenger and there is insincerity/hypocricy, then leave it." - A saying by the truth Ahmed Al-Hassan (as), the leader of the blessed Black Banners of the East
