The Ansari Prayer Manual

In the manual "The Prayer" you find the basic instrutions for the performance of the 5 daily prayers.

Are the rulings of Prayer, Wudu’, and Ghusl in the Book of Jurisprudence correct?

Are the times of prayer as mentioned in the book of Jurisprudence correct?

A believer in the Black Banners asked due to the fitna the Illegitimate Office caused the following question:

"Also are the times of prayer as mentioned in the book of Jurisprudence correct?"

In the Name of Allah, The Abundantly Merciful, The Intensely Merciful All praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds O Allah send Your prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis Yes my brother they are all correct."See Answer on Black Banners Forum

Quotes from Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan about the prayer

The benefits of prayer

The benefit of prayer, and an answer from the holy Mawla Ahmed alHassan a.s. the leader of the blessed Black Banners of the East:

"Prayer is obligatory, and its benefits are many.

From its benefits is that you remember that there is a Creator Whom you must worship.

And from its benefits is that you bow and prostrate and remember that no matter how far you reach you [still] bend down your forehead and head, and it makes you forget your pride and arrogance.

And from its benefits is that it makes the soul (Ruh) of the human being elevate, and it makes his self (Nafs) lighten and become at peace.

All of that is something extremely little and small from the benefits of the prayer.

But all of those [benefits] take place only when you present your soul (Ruh) and self (Nafs) and senses and organs between the Hands of Allah, willingly and with love. And when you rise to pray while you are smiling. And especially the Fajr prayer.
Because usually the human being wakes up at the time of Fajr while he/she hasn’t slept enough, he/she wakes up lazy and tired and his face would be frowning. And that is impermissible." - Translation of a post by احمد احمد from the 10.07.2016

Value of the soil of Karbala

"Is there any value in having the soil of Karbala?"
"From which aspect? Meaning all the Hadiths that talk about the Turba and how it cures and and and? This is incorrect. And it is correct for those who believe in it." - See answer on the Black Banners Forum

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan explains the meaning of prostration to the created

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) said in The Book of Monotheism:

Godhood ["Uluhiyya" in Arabic] is like Lordship ["Rububiyya" in Arabic], for if the meaning of the Lord (Al-Rubb) is the discipliner (Al-Murrabbee), then the God (Al-ilah) is the one whom is sought (the one whom the person "yo'lah" (or turn) towards) in order that he may sustain the shortcoming and attain perfection. And just as "Lord" can be said about the father in regards to his sons, for he is the lord of the family if what we are looking at from his relationship with his sons is him and what he overflows upon them, as such, the attribute of God can be given to the father, if what we are looking at from his relationship with his sons is them and what they ask/demand from him. Therefore, the image of the Divine can be given to the special ones from the Prophets of Allah and His Messengers whom were truly the image of Allah (swt) in Creation.

And the prostration of a created being to another created being means the manifestation of His (swt) Truth/Reality in the one whom is being prostrated to. And the Truth/Reality only manifests in The Divine. Therefore, The one whom is being prostrated to, was prostrated to because of the manifestation of the Divine in him. So, it is clear in the verse that the Divine manifested in Adam (pbuh), and for that reason Allah commanded the Angels to prostrate to him. And it is also clear in the verse that the Divine manifested in Adam (pbuh) when Allah breathed His spirit into him {and breathed into him from My spirit}. Thus, the spirit of Allah is the image of the Divine (Allah has created Adam upon His image), so it was natural that Adam gets prostrated to when Allah breathed into him His spirit, for in reality it was prostration to the image of the Divine which manifested in Adam, so it was prostration to the True Divine whom was represented by this image and His Successor in His creation {And when your Lord said to the Angels verily I am making in Earth a Successor}.

The first Manifestation of the Absolute Divine in Creation and the clearer image of Allah and the True Successor of Allah and the first created being and the first Mind and the first Word is Muhammad (pbuh & his Family).

Thus, the meaning of the verse: {And I breathed into him from My spirit} becomes, when I breathed into Adam from the light of Muhammad (pbuh & his Family)[1], so prostrate to Adam and obey him, so Allah (swt) called Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) {My spirit}, meaning, the manifestation of My Godhood and Life[2]

And when Jesus (pbuh) is called the Spirit of Allah; that is because he is a manifestation to the True Spirit of Allah Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) (And you can find the details about this in the book "AlNobowwah Al-Khatimah" (The Sealing Prophecy))

Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) is the image of Allah in Creation, and the Creation are asked to look in it in order that they may know Allah. So if the reason for Creating [the creation] is Knowing {And I have not created the Jinn and Humans except that they may worship} - Surat Al-Dhāriyāt 51:56

...meaning [except that they may know], then we must know that the true path to Knowing is Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) and the rest of the Prophets and Vicegerents (pbut), each one of them is a manifestation and appearance for that path, and each according to their rank, in order that they make Allah (swt) known to the Creation. Thus, Prostration in reality was not to Adam (pbuh), rather it was to Muhammad (pbuh & his Family), and for that reason the manifestation of the Truth of Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) in Adam (pbuh) was made a condition [to prostration] {When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him from My spirit,then fall down to him in prostration}, rather, it was Prostration to the True Divine Allah (swt), after we have come to know that it was a prostration to an image which showed the Divine in Creation.

  1. And perhaps the one whom contemplates will not miss [the fact that] there are a lot of Prophets and Vicegerents (pbut) whom are better than Adam (pbuh) and higher in rank, for the image of Allah which Adam was created upon is not the first image (Muhammad pbuh & his Family), and the spirit of Allah from which He (swt) breathed into Adam is not the first spirit (Muhammad pbuh & his Family), rather, it is a manifestation from its manifestations in Creation, because between Adam and between it is all the creation whom are higher in rank than Adam (pbuh), but we can say that it is it, because it represents it and makes it appear and because it is a manifestation from its manifestations.
  2. Muhammad (pbuh & his Family) is the true successor of Allah whom is intended for the Creation to reach, and by him Allah is known. For that reason [Allah swt] breathed into Adam from the Truth which was intended to be reached. Therefore, the one who truly deserves to be called the Spirit of Allah and the image of Allah and the Successor of Allah and The Mind, is Muhammad (pbuh & his Family). As for when Adam (pbuh) is called the image of Allah or that he was created upon the image of Allah, that is because he was created upon the image of Allah [which is] Muhammad (pbuh & his Family); and because Adam represented a manifestation of Muhammad (pbuh & his Family).

Dua For Conceiving

"Bismellah ar rahman ar raheem, Allahuma sali ala Muhammad wa ali Muhammad al aima wa mahdieen wa salim tasliman kathira
Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu oh my dear Imam Ahmad Al Hassan a.s. and to my dear Imam Mahdi a.s.. It is both a great blessing and a great privilege to send a message to you and I pray that you are in the best of health and that you are safe. May Allah always protect you and give you victory.
I am writing to you both with the hope that you may pray for the relief of our hardship which my wife and I have been struggling with for years. you see, My wife and I got married in December of 2007 and in that time we were never able to start a family of our very own. The cost of adoption in America has been out of reach for us but we may have a chance at adopting an orphan from my wife's native Egypt.
Not having children has been very hard on my wife as she feels that life is quite empty. I wanted to have my own children but I can accept that Allah had a wise reason for not granting my wife and I children of our own. I only hope and pray to Allah that an opportunity would open up for my wife and I to be parents.
Would you please pray for us? I have complete and absolute belief in you and that you are loved by Allah so I hope that you may include my wife and I in your prayers as I am sure Allah would not leave the duas of an infallible unanswered as Allah is the most kind.
I hope that you are pleased with the video I recorded in your service.
Your sincere servant,

In the Name of Allah The Abundantly Merciful The Intensely Merciful
All praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds
O Allah send Your Prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis
Peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you
Yes, may Allah be kind to you and may He sustain you with goodness in this world and the hereafter. And I ask Allah to sustain you with the righteous progeny inshaAllah.
May Allah grant you success.. before gathering [for intercourse] with your wife, may Allah grant you success, in each time make Wudu' before it and read Surat Al-Ikhlas 3 times, then put your right hand on your wife's belly, may Allah bless her, and read these words (Allah Allah bi Muhammad wa Alee Muhammad) 30 times. And inshaAllah your wife will become pregnant by the permission of Allah The Exalted and by "La Hawla wala Qowatta illa billah (there is no power nor strength except by Allah)".
And inshAllah I see a message from you soon in which you are giving me the good news inshaAllah. And all praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds - Ahmed Al-Hassan / Shawwal 1436" – See Answer on Black Banners Forum


What does the Imam a.s. recommend we read?

Which verse in the quran indicates the relief of the believers?

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan was once asked on Paltalk...

د يᣅالنا: "A question for the yemani, which existing verse in the quran indicates the begining of the relief of the islamic nation, and which surah?"

"{When there comes the victory of Allah and the opening,
And you see people entering the religion of Allah in multitudes,
Then celebrate the praise of your Lord, and ask His forgiveness;
Indeed He is ever Accepting of repentance.}

This is the relief of the believers." - See Paltalk transcript from June 19th, 2017 as pdf
