Imam Hadi (AS) Birthday
Imam Hadi (AS), God the almighty prepared the grounds for the savior of mankind, and you played an important role in this regard.
Imam Hadi, sent Bashr ibn Suleiman from Samara to Baghdad to buy a bondwoman, but he did not know the bondwoman would be Melika (Narjes (PBUH)), the daughter of Roman Emperor, who was going to be the mother of the promised savior of the world, Imam Mahdi (PBUH).
Bashr ibn Suleiman arrives in Baghdad on that particular day when ships anchor and present the captive women for sale. He sees a woman looking just like what Imam Hadi (AS) had described and while others were insisting on buying her, she wasn’t interested to be their bondwoman.
Bashr gives her the letter and she is moved insisting to her master, Amru bin Yazid to sell her to the owner of this letter.
Bashr says: I gave him the money and bought the bondwoman. She repeatedly kissed the letter and put it on her eyes on the way back. I was surprised and asked her why are you doing this when you still don’t know the writer and she replied “you wouldn’t say so if you knew the Prophet (PBUM) and his successors!” She told me her story and I realized her spiritual personality which made me highly respect her. When we arrived Samara and I took her to Imam Hadi (AS), he greeted her and told his sister, Hakima: this is the respected lady you awaited and she hugged her. Imam Hadi (AS) told her “how was the victory of Islam and abjectness of Christianity?” surprisingly she replied “How could I explain when you know it better?”.
Imam Hadi (AS) told her sister Hakima: take her home and teach her the Islamic rites and rituals because she is going to be the wife of my son, Hassan and the mother of Mahdi al-e Muhammad.
Imam Hadi (AS) told Narjes (SA): I congratulate you on a child who will make the world full of justice as it would get full of injustice.
