What is the Holy Spirit?

What is the Holy Spirit?

 

 

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Purification or Infallibility.

So if the servant is dedicated with his intention to Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, and wants the face of Allah, Allah would love him and Allah would assign for him an Angel that causes him to enter into all good and takes him out of all evil, and leads him towards the Noble Morals, and and the Holy Spirit would become an intermediary to transfer knowledge to the human being that he [the Holy Spirit] has been entrusted with.

And the Holy Spirits are many and not [just] one.

And the one that was with Jesus (pbuh) and with the Prophets is not like the one that was with Muhammad (pbuh & his family), and Ali (pbuh), and Fatima (pbuh), and the Imams (pbut), and this [Holy Spirit] is the Greatest Holy Spirit; which was not sent down to anyone except Muhammad (pbuh & his family), and after his death it was passed to Ali (pbuh), and then to the Imams (pbut), and then after them [it shall be passed] to the twelve Mahdis.

[Narrated] from Abi Baseer he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding the saying of Allah, the Blessed, the Most High: {And we have inspired you with a Spirit by our command, you haven’t known what the book is, neither the Imaan (faith)} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Shura 42:52}  So he (pbuh) said, ‘It is a creation from the creation of Allah, the Glorified and Exalted, that is greater than Gabriel and Michael (pbut), it was with the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), informing him and enforcing him, and it is with the Imams after him.’

[Narrated] from Abi Baseer he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding the saying of Allah, the Blessed, the Most High: {And they ask you concerning the spirit. Say, "The spirit is the affair of my Lord."} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Isra 17:85}.  So he (pbuh) said,‘It is a creation greater than Gabriel and Michael (pbut), it was with the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), informing him of news and it is with the Imams and it is from the Kingdoms of Heaven.’” Al-Kafi: Volume 1, page 273.

[Narrated] from Abi Hamza he said: “I asked Aba Abdullah (pbuh) regarding knowledge, is it the knowledge learned by a man of knowledge from the mouths of men, or is it in the Book with you, you read it and then learn from it?  He (pbuh) said, ‘The matter is greater than that, and imperative, have you not heard Allah’s, the Glorified and Exalted, saying, {And we have inspired you with a Spirit by our command, you haven’t known what the book is, neither the Imaan (faith)} {The Holy Qur’an Surat Al-Shura 42:52}   And then he (pbuh) said, ‘What do your companions say regarding this verse, do they agree that he was in a state of not knowing what the Book is and the faith?’  So I said, ‘I do not know, may I be your ransom, what they are saying.’  So he (pbuh) said to me, ‘Indeed, he was at a state of not knowing what the book and faith are until Allah, the Almighty, sent the Spirit which He mentioned in the Book, so when Allah inspired it to him, he knew by it the knowledge and understanding, and it is the Spirit that Allah, the Almighty, gives to whomever He wills, so if He gives it to a servant, He has taught him understanding.’” Al-Kafi: Volume 1, page 274.

So the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (pbuh & his family) when he was sent down to this physical world in order to begin his second test after the first test in the Atom World (Tharr World), he was veiled with the physical body, but when he was dedicated to Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, a kind of dedication/sincerity that the Earth has never known the likes of, Allah, the Glorious, the Almighty, loved him and assigned for him the Greatest Holy Spirit, and he was the winner of this race in this world likewise he was the winner of the race in the first test in the Atom World (Tharr World).

And the Greatest Holy Spirit was with the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family), so when [the veil] was opened for him, the Greatest Holy Spirit transferred from the Messenger to the Prince of the Believers (pbuh), because the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) was sufficed with the enforcement which came from the opening [more] than the enforcement of the Greatest Holy Spirit.

And thus Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) shall not need the Greatest Holy Spirit during the time of appearance, for verily:- it [the veil] was opened to him during the time of the smaller occultation, so the Greatest Holy Spirit shall be transferred to the first Mahdi.  So just as “ourselves and yourselves” is applied on the Prophet of Allah (pbuh & his family), and Ali (pbuh), likewise it is applied here on Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh), and the first Mahdi (pbuh), from the aspect of the robe which was worn by the Messenger of Allah and the Prince of the Believers, and it is:- the Greatest Holy Spirit.

Otherwise, they are not equal except from this aspect, for the Messenger of Allah (pbuh & his family) is better than Ali (pbuh), and likewise Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) is better than the first Mahdi, and the equality [between them] from this aspect is the aspect of dress, and it is the Greatest Holy Spirit, which the first Mahdi has worn, for verily he needs enforcement and the opening has not occurred for him.

Whereas, the opening occurred for Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh), so his enforcement is from the opening, because there are times where nothing remains except for Allah, the One, the Conqueror. As for the first Mahdi the opening has not occurred for him, so because of that he is aided/enforced by the Greatest Holy Spirit, and one should supplicate for him [by saying]:- “that he worships You and does not associate anything with You” meaning, that he does not see even the “I” that exists between his sides, so that he may not see nor know except Allah, for worship is knowing.

Worship You means Know You, and not associate anything with You [means] not know other than You, [not] even himself, meaning that the Clear Opening occurs to him.

And also the companions of the Qa’im, other than the first Mahdi, are aided/enforced by the Holy Spirit, however, a Holy spirit, [and] not the Greatest Holy Spirit, and each one according to [their degree]. For that reason they are made Infallibles: “Your covenant is in your palm.” [1]“Allah places His hand on the heads of the worshipers, so their minds will be gathered by it and their dreams will completed by Him..” [2]
