| Al – Bay'a is the pledge and commission to Allah and the prophet (P) and the witness that Muhammad (P) in the Prophet . Allah mighty and sublime He be – relates the Bay'a to the prophet . to that of Allah as He says , ( Verily those who plight their fealty to thee plight their fealy is over their hands ) 1 .|
The prophet(P) said , ( Who shakes my hand or the hand of those who hold me till the day of judgment go into paradise ) . Shaking the hand , here , means the confession and witness of Muhammad's prophecy , and the promise by hands to cling to the rules of Islam . This is clear by putting his hand , in the from of shaking in Miuhammad's hand (P) and Has Allah's hand will be over . hand . Thus , he will be a great winner , for there is no great profit but that when Allah's hand is over yours . What a standing that after the prophet , for to plight the Baya to him is to make it to Allah . This had happened at the prophecy time , but after the prophet , (P) is dead , Al-Imam Ali-May Allah be pleased with him – inherited the spiritual touch and the succession of the Caliphate of Attariqa . About that the histonan sheikh Abdul-Rahman Al-Jabarit mentioned that Ali said , ( O " Prophet ! may you guide me to the shortest and easiest way to Allah . " the prophet (P) then , said ( You have to persevere on the remembrance of Allah in privacy ) Ali said " This is the reward or remembrance and all people do it ." The prophet said , ( The doomsday will not come while someone says ( Allah) . Then Ali said , " How to do this ? ' The prophet answered him , ( Close your eyes and hear from me thrice , then , say them thrice which I listen ) then He (P) said " There is no god but Allah thrice ) closing his eyes and raising his voice which Ali listened , Ali , then ; uttered ' There is no gods but Allah" thrice closing his eyes raising his voice which the prophet listened) 2 . Al Hussein (P) inherted this spiritual touch from Al-Imam Ali and which Muhammad Al-Baqir , then , Al-Imam jafar Al-Sadiq , then by Al-Imam Musa Al-Khadhem , then by Al-Imam Ali Ar-ridha forming by this the first branch of Attariqa Al-Alia Al-Qadria , Al-Kesnazania ( called the golden chain) .
Al-Bay'a in the Holy Qura'n
We can infer that Al-Bay'a and fenlty and clinging to them and never breaching them are found in the
Holy Qura'n through the following verse :
Almighty Allah says ( Verily those who plight their fealty to thee plight their fealty in truth to Allah : then any one violates his oath , does so to the harm of his own soul , and any one who fulfills what he has covenanted with Allah , Allah soon will grant him a great reward )3.
And Al-Mighty Allah says ( Fulfill the covenant of Allah when ye have entered into it , and break not your oaths after ye have confirmed then : indeed ye have ye have made Allah your surety ) 4
And Al-Mighty Allah says ( and fulfill engagement ; for engagement will be enquired into ( on the day of reckoning
And Al-Mighty Allah says ( and fulfill your covenant with me and I shall fulfilling covenant with you ) 6.
And Al-Mighty Allah says ( None shall have the power of intercession , but such a one as has received permission from ( Allah ) most gracious ) 7.
Al-Bay'a in the Prophetic Sunna
In the authority of Ubadah bin Al-Samit , Al-Burkhari mentioned that the prophet (P) ( Promise and support me , but not to be polytheist . Don't seal or kill your sons , Don't do false hand you yourself create . Do not disobey a favorite , who redeems his pledge , Allah rewards him , who did some sins and was punished in life , this his sin expiation , who did something , then , Allah concealed it , he will be up to Allah who may forgive or punish him " Then we plighted our fealty to him ) 8.
On the authority of Abu Shaddad bin Aws and ubadah bin Al-samit . Ya'ali bin Shaddad said , " we were at the Prophet who said , Os there a stronger among you ? we said no . He commands us to close the door and said , " raise your hands and say , there is no God but Allah , we did it . He (P) , then , said , " O Allah thanks for you , for sent me with this word and commanded me with it and promise me the paradise with it , and you don't breach your promise ) . The prophet (P) , then , said ( rejoice ! Allah forgave you ) 9 .
Attabarani narrated that-Bashir bin Al-Khsazi said ( I came to the prophet (P) to promise and support him and said ; " We should I promise you on ? The prophet (P) said ( To say , " I witness that there is no God but Allah , alone , and that Muhammad is his servant and prophet and you have to do your five prayers on their time , you have to pay the imposed Zakat and fast in the month of Ramadhan , to visit the holy house and to do holy-struggle for Allah's " I then said " By Allah , I have but ten and they are my family's means of living . concerning holy-fight , I am timid and it is said that who that who withdraws , Allah will be angry with him . And I am afraid that when the fight takes place , I may withdraw , then , Allah's wrote will fall spun me . The prophet (P) shrank his hand , then , releaved it and said ( can do neither Zakat nor holy-fight , then , with what do you want to go into paradise ) I said , " You prophet ! may you stretch your hand so as to plight and support you " . " The prophet (P) stretched his hand I plighted him the fealty and supported him ) 10.
Salma Bin Qaiss , one of the prophet's aunts , said that ( I came to the Prophet (P) and plighted and supported him with a group of woman from Al-Ansar . When he (P) imposed the condition that me must not disbelieve in Allah , not steal , prostitute , kill our children , make false hood , disobey and not to cheat to husband , we promised and supported him then we left . ) 11.
( On the authority of Muhammad bi Ali Bin Al-Hussein – May Allah be pleased with him – Attabarani narrated that the prophet (P) plighted and supported Al-Hassen and Al-Hussein and Abdullah bin Al-Abass and Abdullah bin Jafar when they were immature ) 12.
( On he authority of Abdullah bin AlZubair and Abdullah bin Ja'far , Attabarani narrated also that they promise and supported the prophet (P) when were seven years age , and when the prophet saw then , he smile and stretched his hand for Bay'a)13 .
It sounds clear from the aforesaid that Bai'a is not restricted to men only . it is for both man and women and adolescent as well . Since Attariqa in the right way which leads to Allah , anyone who has mind and insight must take the Bay'a from the prophet's family and the prophet Sheikh who restrict themselves to the prophet (P) saying ( who died while having no Bay'a , then , his death is like that of the pre-Islamic people )
