6. Reviving after death

I also heard from Aga Mirza Mahmud that there was a person in Najaf Ashraf named late Aga Shaykh Muhammad Husain Kamashai, a student of great scholars and late Murtaza Kashmiri. He was famous as a runaway from the grave and the reason of this fame, as I heard from him directly, was that when he was eighteen years old, he contracted small pox in Kamash and his illness intensified by the day. By chance it was the season of grapes and the room where he lay was used for storing grapes. So without telling anyone he ate those grapes and his illness worsened till he passed away.
Those who were present there started weeping and mourning and when his mother arrived and found her son dead, she said: Till I don’t return, no one should touch my son. After that she took the Quran and retired to the terrace and started pleading and supplicating in the court of the Almighty. She said, making the Holy Quran and Imam Husain (`a) as mediators and said: I will not leave you till my son does not return.
Only a short time must have passed that life returned to the body of Aga Muhammad Husain. He looked around and not finding his mother, said: Call my mother here, since the Almighty Allah has gifted me to Imam Husain (`a). Inform my mother that her son has become alive again.
He narrated: When the time of my death arrived two persons dressed in white, having luminous faces came to me and asked: What is your problem? I said: My whole body is in pain. One of them passed his hand over my leg and the pain of legs disappeared. In the same way, as he passed hands over my body, the pain continued to recede, till I saw that my family members were weeping. I tried my best to explain to them that now I was comfortable, but I did not succeed. At last the two of them pushed me upwards. At that time I was extremely elated.
On the way a person with an illuminated countenance met us and said: I have given him thirty more years of life and since his mother has sought my mediation, you must take him back. They brought me back with speed. Now, when I opened my eyes, I saw people weeping around me. I told my mother: Your seeking mediation was accepted and I have got thirty years of life.
Most people of Najaf Ashraf, who had heard this story directly, were anticipating his death after thirty years had passed. When this destined period was over, he passed away in Najaf Ashraf.
Another similar incident is mentioned at the end of Darus Salam narrated from the righteous personality, Mulla Abdullah Husain, caretaker of the tomb of Imam Husain (`a).
It is a long story whose gist is that the son of Mulla Abdullah Husain fell down accidentally from the upper storey and died. His father was shattered; weeping and wailing, he took refuge in the court of Imam Husain (`a). He supplicated for his son’s life and said that till that time he would not leave the shrine.
When the neighbors despaired after waiting for a long time, they said that the burial cannot be delayed any further. So they took the body to the corpse wash room. During the funeral bath, due to the intercession of Imam Husain (`a) his soul returned to his body and he put on his clothes and walking on his own, came to the shrine and returned home with his father.
Such miracles of the Holy Imams (`a) are present in large numbers, some of which are mentioned in the book of Madinatul Maajiz.

7. Relief from the enemy

It is narrated that with an aim to perform the Ziyarat of the Holy Imams (`a) buried in Iraq, Aga Shaykh Muhammad Husain Kamashai procured a fast moving donkey and packed his books and clothes and loaded them on the beast. They included a booklet, in which he had made important notes and some things opposed to dissimulation (Taqayyah) [curse and condemnation of opponents].
The caravan set out and reached the Baghdad check post where the inspector decided to check the luggage of this Shaykh. By chance he found the same booklet, opened it and read the contents and then looking at Shaykh angrily, said: Take the Shaykh to the high court, and after arresting him left the other pilgrims without inspection.
There was a long distance between that check post and the city and there was no habitation in between. Two soldiers loaded the Shaykh’s luggage on donkeys and set out from there.
After traveling for some distance, the donkey tired out and no matter how much they tried the two soldiers could do nothing to drive them. One soldier said: I am extremely tired. This Shaykh cannot run away. I am going ahead, you follow. After covering some distance, the second soldier was also exhausted due to extreme heat and thirst. He told the Shaykh: I am going ahead to reach shade and water. You catch up on me later.
The Shaykh found himself alone and free. He was also tired. So he mounted the donkey. As soon as he mounted, the attitude of the donkey changed. He raised its ears and started galloping like an Arabian horse till it reached the first soldier. Though he wanted to inform him that the donkey has recovered and you may also come abroad, it seemed as if someone closed his mouth, and he could say nothing.
He passed that soldier, who also could not understand what was happening. The Shaykh understood that it was the grace of the Almighty Allah; till he reached the second soldier as well, but did not tell him anything and he also neither saw nor heard anything. After that the Shaykh left the reins of the donkey loose, so that it may take him wherever it wanted. It reached inside Baghdad city and galloping through the lanes entered Kazmain; then conveyed the Shaykh to the house where his friends were present. There it began to hit its head against the door. After meeting his friends, the Shaykh set out from Kazmain and thanked the Almighty for saving him from a great mischief.

8. Miraculous opening of the gates

It is narrated from Shaykh Muhammad Husain that: I came out of my house late one night to purchase some pickle from a shop near the city boundary wall. In the past, Najaf was surrounded by a wall having a gate. This gate was next to the big market, which led to the holy courtyard and the gate of the holy courtyard opened into the golden hall facing the building; such that if all gates were open the holy sepulcher could be seen from the city gate.
The Shaykh says: Passing from there, I heard some people banging at the gate from outside and saying: O Ali, open the gate, but the guards were unmoved, because the gates were supposed to be kept locked all night. I moved on and after buying the pickle, on my way back, I reached the gate again. The visitors were screaming in a desperate way and thrashing their feet on the ground, saying: O Ali, please open the door.
I leant against the door and watched from the sides of my eyes. Once I saw a blue light emanate from the grave having two types of movements. One around itself and another towards the courtyard and the big market and it was moving forward with absolute tranquility. I was watching it with rapt attention. It slowly passed in front of me and hit the gate. Suddenly the door and its frame uprooted from the wall and crashed to the ground and the Arabs entered the city in joy.
The people of Najaf in general and scholars in particular are familiar with the 6th, 7th and 8th story, and scholars who have met Late Muhammad Husain and heard the story directly from him are yet alive. If all their names were to be quoted, our discussion would be unduly prolonged.

9. Imam Ali Reza (`a) cures the sick

The late Mirza has narrated from Shaykh Muhammad Husain that he set out from Iraq for the Ziyarat of Holy Mash-had, when he reached there, he developed a boil in one of his fingers, which caused him severe pain. Some scholars took him to the hospital. The Christian surgeon declared that it was absolutely essential to ampute the finger lest the infection spreads to the whole body. The Shaykh did not agree to have his finger amputed. The doctor said that if he comes the following day, he would have to get his hand amputed from the wrist.
The Shaykh came home, but the pain continued to increase and he wailed and screamed all night. The following morning he consented to have his finger amputed, but when they took him to the hospital again the doctors declared that now he would have to get his hand amputed from the wrist. The Shaykh did not agree and said that he was only prepared to have his finger amputed. It would not be of any use, said the surgeon; and if you don’t have the hand amputed from the wrist today, the infection would spread further and tomorrow you would have to get your hand amputed from the shoulder.
The Shaykh returned home once again, but the pain intensified to such an extent that in the morning he was ready to allow amputation of his hand. When he was again taken to the surgeon, he said: Now, the poison has spread further and the hand would have to be amputed from the shoulder and amputation from the wrist is useless. If it is not done today, tomorrow it would spread to all the organs. It might also reach the heart, causing death.
The Shaykh didn’t allow his hand to be amputed from the shoulder and he returned from there. The pain intensified further and he continued to moan and scream all night. At last he agreed to have the hand amputed from the shoulder. His friends took him to the surgeon. On the way, the Shaykh said: Friends, it is possible that I might die in the hospital, so first take me to the holy shrine.
They took him there and made him sit in a corner of the holy mausoleum. The Shaykh wept intensely and complaining in the court of the Imam, said: Is it appropriate that your visitor should be involved in such a difficulty and you don’t come to his help, though you are a very kind Imam, especially to your visitors? After that he fell in swoon and in it he saw Imam Ali Reza (`a). The Imam passed his blessed hand from his fingers to his shoulder and said: You have been cured.
The Shaykh regained his senses and found that his hand was perfect and there was no pain at all. His friends arrived and took him to the hospital. He did not divulge anything about how the Imam had cured him. When he was brought to the Christian surgeon and he looked at the hand, there was no sign of that boil. Thinking that it might be the wrong hand, he examined the other hand as well, but found that also in perfect health. He asked: O Shaykh, have you met Hazrat Masih (Jesus Christ)?
He replied: I met one who is more exalted; and he has cured me, and after that he narrated how the Imam had cured his malady.

10. Bestowal of Imam Ali Reza (`a)

I heard from Haaj Shaykh Muhammad Razi, a practical scholar and accomplished author of books like Athaarul Hujjat that he heard from Late Haaj Aga Yahya (congregational leader of Masjid Haaj Sayyid Azizullah, Tehran) and other scholars, that the Late Haaj Shaykh Ibrahim alias Sahibuzzamani said: I composed a panegyric (Qasida) on 11th Zilqad, birthday of Imam Ali Reza (`a) about the birth and praise of the holy Imam and left my place intending to recite it to the minister. When I was passing through the holy courtyard, I said to myself: Stupid man! The real king is this only. Where are you going? Why don’t you recite your Qasida to him?
So I regretted my previous intention and came to the sepulcher (Zari) and recited my Qasida. After that I said: O master, I am in very constrained financial conditions. It would be great if you can bestow some reward to me.
Suddenly someone placed ten tomans in my hand from the right side. I said: Master, this is less. Immediately someone gave ten tomans from the left. Again I said that it was less and someone gave another ten tomans. In short, I requested six more times and each time ten tomans were given to me. (In fact at that time Ten tomans was a huge amount). When I found sixty tomans sufficient for my needs, I felt ashamed to ask for more. So I pocketed the money and thanked for it and came out of the holy shrine.
At the shoe booth, I met Haaj Shaykh Hasan Tehrani. As soon as he saw me, he took me aside and said: Haaj Shaykh, you have become very clever and you came to Imam Ali Reza (`a) directly. You composed the couplets and the Imam rewarded you. Tell me what is the amount you received as recompense? I said: Sixty Tomans. He asked: Are you prepared to exchange them for double the amount? I accepted the offer and gave him the sixty Tomans and took 120 Tomans in return.
Later, I regretted exchanging the money that the Imam had gifted. So I went back to the Shaykh and tried to persuade him to cancel the deal, but he was not prepared to do that any cost.

11. Bestowal of Imam Husain (`a)

The pious and righteous personality, the late Haaj Shaykh Ghulam Reza Tabisi, approximately thirty-three years ago came to Shiraz and stayed there for some months in Madressa of Aga Babakhan. When I went to meet him, he said:
I performed the Ziyarat of the holy places in a caravan of some friends. A night before returning to Iran, I remembered that though we had performed the Ziyarat of all the holy places, we had not visited Masjid Buratha. How nice it would have been if we had visited this place as well and had not been deprived of the blessings of that place? I said to my companions: Come, let us go to Masjid Buratha, but they did not agree and instead said that there was no sufficient time for it.
When they declined, I left alone and traveled from Kazmain to Masjid Buratha. I found its gate closed and it seemed that people had locked the door from inside and left and there was no one there. I was perplexed as I had covered this distance with great anticipation. When I examined the wall, I realized that it would be possible to scale it. So I climbed over it and entered the mosque and took it for granted that since the door was closed from inside, it would be easy to open it, whereas no one else was present in the Masjid.
After the rituals, I noticed that people had placed a very strong lock from inside and then exited from there with a ladder or something. I was extremely anxious as the wall was absolutely un-scalable from inside. I said: I have spent my lifetime in devotion to Imam Husain (`a) and hope that when I reach the gate of Paradise, it would open with the blessings of the Imam, and the gate of Paradise is more important than this gate, so it can also open with the blessings of Imam Husain (`a). After that I placed my hand on the lock and pulled it saying: O Husain; and it opened immediately. I came out and thanked the Almighty. After that I also managed to join my caravan.

Amazing Stories

1. Charity (Sadaqah) delays death

I heard from Aga Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi that once our respected uncle (mother’s brother), Late Aga Mirza Ibrahim Mahallati was involved in such a terrible disease that physicians admitted helplessness in curing him back to health and said that his mentor, Haaj Shaykh Muhammad Jawad Bedabadi should be informed immediately. So we sent a telegram to him. Reply came: Give 200 Tomans in alms so that the Almighty Allah may cure him.
Although at that time this was a big amount, but it was procured in any way and distributed among the poor. It proved effective and the Mirza recovered.
Mirza Mahallati fell ill again the second time and the physicians expressed helplessness. First of all, I sent a telegram to Late Bedabadi. I had sent a reply telegram and had also requested for reply, but no reply came and finally Mirza died of that ailment. Then I understood that the reason of not receiving any reply from Late Bedabadi was that the time of destined death had arrived for the Mirza, which could not be delayed by alms.
Two conclusions can be derived from this story. One is that the ill can be cured through alms (Sadaqah). On the contrary, death can also be delayed through it. A large number of traditions and incidents have come down from Ahle Bayt (`a) regarding the effectiveness of charity in curing illnesses, delaying death, increasing lifespan and warding off seventy types of calamities. Those who are interested may refer to the books of Layaliul Akhbar of Toisarkani and Kalmah Tayyabah of Muhaddith Nuri.
Another point is that when death is definite and destined and living longer is against divine wisdom, charity is of no use, although one benefits from it in the other world. Another incident is narrated here to support this point.

2. No cure for destined death

Haji Ghulam Husain, the tobacco seller informed me that: I heard from Aga Haaj Shaykh Muhammad Ja’far Mahallati that during the illness of Hujjatul Islam Late Haji Mirza Muhammad Hasan Shirazi some prominent scholars were gathered around his bed and saying: Many religious persons have performed supplications in holy places like the tomb of Imam Husain (`a) and other holy places, especially Kufa Masjid and have prayed to Allah for your health. In addition to this, excessive charity has also been given for your well being. We believe that the Almighty Allah will cure you with the blessings of supplications and charity and keep you in health in order to benefit the Muslims.
The Late Mirza responded with a statement, which apparently showed that his destined death has arrived and that it was now necessary to leave the world. He said: These mediations cannot block the definite wisdom of Almighty Allah.

3. Recitation of Quran at the time of death

Since an incident about the terminal illness of Mirza Muhammad Mahallati was mentioned before, I would like to narrate the story about his death as well.
The Late Haji Mirza Ismail Kazerooni used to say that Mirza Mahallati started reciting the last verses of Surah Hashr in the agony of his death, till he was in the middle of the verse:

هُوَ اللَّهُ الَّذِی لَا اِلَٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَ الْمَلِک الْقُدُّوسُ السَّلَامُ…
“He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy, the Giver of peace, the Granter of security…” (Surah Hashr 59:23)

True success and good fortune is only that in the last moments of ones life ones tongue and heart should be engrossed in remembrance of the Almighty and that death should arrive in this condition and it is the sincere wish of all believers:

وَفِی ذَٰلِک فَلْیتَنَافَسِ الْمُتَنَافِسُونَ.
“…and for that let the aspirers aspire.” (Surah Mutafaffifeen 83:26)
May Allah make us die on righteousness for the sake of Muhammad and his purified progeny.

4. Janabat(5) is spiritual impurity

Aga Rizvi has narrated that the Late Bedabadi mentioned above came to Shiraz from Bushahar on way to Medina and stayed there for two months. He was a guest of Aga Ali Akbar Maghazai and congregational prayer was held there under his lead. At all three prayer times a crowd of believers was present there to gain from his company.
One night the ritual bath had become obligatory on me, so after the Morning call for prayer, I left my place to go to the public bath. Suddenly I saw Shaykh Muhammad Baqir Shaykhul Islam on way to meet Aga Bedabadi. He asked: Are you not coming with me? I felt ashamed to say that I was going to the public bath. So I accompanied him thinking that there was enough time yet and that I would go the public bath after greeting Aga Bedabadi. When we two came to him, first Aga Shaykhul Islam shook hands with him. When my turn came, Aga Bedabadi whispered to me in my ear: Going to the public bath was more important.
I was astonished and moved at his insight and started retreating with shame and regret, Shaykhul Islam asked: Aga Rizvi, where are you going? The Late Bedabadi said: Let him go, he has something important to do.
It can be concluded from this story that impurity of seminal emission and other impurities are not mere nominal issues, for which the Messenger of Allah () has fixed some laws, as some scholars have opined. On the contrary, all kinds of impurities, that is any act, which necessitate ritual bath (Ghusl) and ablution (Wudhu), especially seminal emission; all are factual matters. That is, due to them a type of impurity, filth and darkness is created in the soul, in the presence of which, that person is not having any inclination to Prayers and the Prayer becomes invalid. It is so, because this act is having the capacity of presence in the court of the Almighty and is a whispered supplication to Him.
Due to this internal impurity, it is detestable in that condition (Makruh) to eat, sleep, read more than seven verses of Quran and to go in the presence of one having agony of death, because angels are present there and the dying person is in dire need of divine mercy, whereas angels abhor the impurity of Janabat and menstrual period (Haiz).
Moreover, all unlawful or detestable acts in that condition are only deemed as such due to that impurity. Thus, those sincere Shia and followers of Ahle Bayt (`a) who have undertaken spiritual struggles and lawful penances are bestowed with an illuminated conscience by Allah and they can feel matters, which are beyond human perception. It is possible that they are even able to perceive that impurity, as seen in the case of Late Bedabadi.
There are many similar incidents of this type; like in Tankabani’s book, Qisasul Ulama the following statement of the Late Aga Sayyid Abdul Karim Ibne Sayyid Zainul Abideen Lahji is narrated:
My respected father used to say: I was studying in the holy places and it was the last period of Late Aga Baqir Wahid Bahbani and the Aga was not giving lectures due to his old age and weakness. On the contrary, his students were performing this duty, but the Aga held a token lecture, in which he gave superficial talks on Sharh Lumah and some of us students attended it as a token gesture. By chance, one day I became needful for ritual bath (Ghusl Janabat) and my prayers had also lapsed, and it was time for Aga’s lecture.
I said to myself that I would attend the lecture first, so that it is not disturbed and after that go directly to the public bath and perform ritual bath. The Aga had not arrived when I reached the lecture room. When he did so, he did most cheerfully and smiling. He glanced at all who were present there. All of a sudden signs of sorrow and grief became apparent on his face and he said: There would be no lecture today. All of you may go back. People started leaving, but when I wanted to leave, he said: Be seated. I continued sitting. When all had left, he said: There is some money below the carpet where you are sitting, take it and perform the ritual bath and you must never again attend such a gathering in condition of ritual impurity.
A similar incident is mentioned in the book of Mustadrakul Wasail, Vol. 3, Pg. 401 in the biography of the great scholar, Sayyid Muhammad Baqir Qazwini. It is narrated that during the year 1241 A.H. a terrible plague spread in Najaf Ashraf in which 40000 lives were lost and for whomsoever it was possible, he fled from there except this Sayyid.
A night before the plague, Amirul Momineen (`a) informed him in dream saying: You would be the last martyr among those who die in plague. It was exactly same; that after the Sayyid’s death, the epidemic ended and in that whole period from the morning to night the Sayyid performed prayers of dead in the holy courtyard. He appointed some persons for giving funeral bath and shrouding and some for burying the dead.
Sayyid Murtaza informed me that he was with the Sayyid in those times: One day a good-natured old caretaker of Najaf Ashraf started weeping on seeing the Sayyid, as if he wanted something from him, but was unable to reach him. When the Sayyid saw this, he said to me: Ask him what he wants? When I went to him and asked, he said: If I were also to die during this, it is my wish that only the Sayyid (r.a.) should pray my funeral prayers separately. (due to excess of dead, the Sayyid prayed for a number of corpses at a time). I turned around and conveyed his wish to the Sayyid and he accepted it. That old man went away from there.
The following day a youth arrived weeping and said: I am the son of that old man and he has contracted plague today. He sent me to request you to visit him. The Sayyid agreed; and leaving someone as substitute to pray on the dead, himself set out to visit that religious man. A group of believers also accompanied him. On the way, a believer came out from his house. When he saw the Sayyid and his companions, he asked where they were headed. I said: We are going to visit a patient. He said: I will also come with you to earn the same rewards.
When the Sayyid reached that patient, he was extremely elated and expressed his love and sincerity to each of us in turn. Till the person who had joined us on the way came before him and greeted him. At that moment, the patient’s condition worsened and he gestured to him with his hands and head in anxiety. He was in fact asking him to go out. He also signaled his sons to take him out. All of us were astounded, because there was no familiarity between that man and the patient. That man went out immediately. After sometime he returned and now the patient smiled at him and expressed approval and pleasure.
When all of us left the house, we asked that person what the matter was. He said I was in a state of ritual impurity and I was going to the public bath when I met you all. I thought that first I would visit this sick person and after that go to the public bath, but when I saw his severe displeasure, I understood that it was due to my ritual impurity. So I went out, performed the ritual bath and returned; and you saw how this time he was so much pleased.
After narrating this strange story, the author of Mustadrak says: This proves why Islamic law discourages persons with ritual impurity and menstrual period not to visit one who is in the agony of death.

5. Miracle of covering long distances

The prominent scholar and researcher named Mirza Mahmud Mujtahid Shirazi, a resident of Samarrah has narrated an incident from Sayyid Muhammad Ali Rashti, who has passed a major part of his life in lawful penance and spiritual struggles. He says: When I was a student of Madressa Haaj Qawam it was famous among students that a person in patched garments and slippers, who usually sat at Tusi Gate was having the miraculous powers of covering vast distances in no time and every Thursday day he recites the Evening (Maghrib) Prayer in Wadius Salaam at the Place of Mahdi and the Night (Isha) Prayer in the sanctuary of Imam Husain (`a) in Kerbala. Whereas there is a distance of around 50 Kms between Najaf Ashraf and Kerbala and for one who is on foot it is two days of travel.
I wanted to investigate this in order to gain certainty. So I became friendly with that man in patched garments and when our friendship was on a firm footing, on Wednesday I told my roommate whom I trusted, to go to Kerbala and spend Friday eve in the holy sanctuary and check if my friend with patched garments is seen there. When he set out for Kerbala, I went to my friend with patched garments and mentioned that I had a problem. He asked: What is it? I said: There is an important matter, about which I have to convey information to my classmate this very moment, but regretfully he has already gone to Kerbala and I cannot contact him now. He said: Explain the whole matter to me. The Almighty Allah is powerful and your message can reach him tonight itself. I handed to him a letter that I had written from before and he set out to Wadius Salaam, after which I did not see him till on Saturday my classmate returned and giving that letter to me, said: That gentleman with patched clothes came to me in the tomb of Imam Husain (`a) and gave this letter.
When I saw the letter, I became certain that the gentleman with patched clothes was having the power of covering long distances in no time. I decided to ask him how I can also get the same powers. So I invited him for dinner at my home. Since it was hot, we retired to the terrace from where the dome of the holy shrine of Amirul Momineen (`a) was visible. After a brief dinner, I said: I invited you for this dinner because I have become certain that you have the powers of covering long distances in no time and the letter that I gave you was to gain certainty. Now I request you to guide me and teach me what I should do to gain this power?
When he realized that his secret was exposed, he gave a loud scream and fell in a swoon like dried wood. I thought that he was dead, but he recovered after sometime and pointing to the holy dome said: What I have is a blessing of that Master. You may also ask him whatever you want. Then he went away from there and was never seen in Najaf Ashraf again and as much as I investigated, no one else also saw him. I heard this story from other scholars of religion also, and all have narrated it through Late Rashti.
No one should have any difficulty in believing this incident and none should doubt it, because it is not a difficult matter for the Holy Imams (`a) to bestow the power of covering long distances in no time to anyone of their followers and many such examples are available in books of traditional reports.
For example, in Biharul Anwar, the following incident regarding Ali bin Yaqtin, the Prime Minister of Harun Rashid is mentioned in the life history of Imam Musa Kazim (`a):
Ibrahim Jammal Kufi was deeply hurt by Ali bin Yaqtin. Thus, when Ali bin Yaqtin came to meet the Imam in Medina Munawwara, the Imam disregarded him and said: Till Ibrahim is not satisfied with you, I will also not be satisfied. He said: Ibrahim is in Kufa and I am in Medina. Imam (`a) enabled him to reach the door of Ibrahim in a moment, miraculously. He called Ibrahim out. When he came out, he found Ali bin Yaqtin worried and anxious. Ali explained the matter to him and made him satisfied. On the contrary, he placed his cheek on the ground and adjured him to put his foot on it so that the Imam is satisfied. After that he returned to Medina the same moment and the Imam was satisfied with him.
Similar is the incident of Imam Muhammad Taqi (`a), in which he conveyed the caretaker of Raasul Husain Mosque in Syria from Damascus to Medina and then to Masjidul Haraam and then conveyed him back to his place. There are other examples as well, but it is beyond the scope of this book to mention them all, because only incidents heard or memorized from reliable persons are mentioned, although in order to strengthen our arguments, we have provided references in some instances.
