الحمد لله رب العالمين حَمْدًا يُوافِي نعمه ويكافئ مزيده

Those who have spent time poring over old tomes in the way of medieval scribes can witness to the pleasure and solace that delving into their words can give. There is no greater joy than noticing hidden links and joining the dots as it were – gaining in confidence that the ‘Aimma were building for us a supra-structure of the Deen the bricks of which fit intricately.

It is hoped that through this blog: wisdom might be uncovered that jurists looking for the law might have overlooked, the socio-historical context of those times can be brought into sharp relief, obscure lexical etymology of words can be highlighted, but perhaps more importantly – an enthusiast can find space to share any interesting tidbit which caught the eye in the self-contained world that is the Shi’ite corpus.
