Statement of Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (alaihi salam) Regarding the Ark of the Covenant



Scene from a Mausoleum (c. 1550 CE Falnama (“The Book of Prophecies”); Qazvin, Persia, Safavid Empire) -Jafar al-Sadiq (Author, Artist) (? Scene from a Mausoleum H Miniature Painting; Mulk-i Vasii`’ al-Fadhaa-yi Iiraan, Faaris, Qazviin; The Safavids and their Successors – The David Collection Miniature from a copy of Jafar al-Sadiq’s Fal-nama. “Scene From a Mausoleum” Iran, Qasvin; c. 1550

 “…With me is the Sword of the Messenger of Allah, prayers and salutations be upon him, with me is the Flag of the Messenger, his Coat of Arms, his Pennon, and his Helmet. If they are truthful, let them describe the Coat of Arms of the Messenger of Allah? With me is the Flag of the Messenger of Allah, the Victorious. With me is the Staff of Moses. With me is the Ring of Solomon, son of David. With me is Tray of Moses, used for offerings. With me is the Name of God Almighty the Messenger of Allah would place between the Muslims and pagans during war, so no arrow from the pagans would reach the Muslims. With me is the…object that the Angels carried, “As the evidence of his kingship, he will bring to you the Ark of the Covenant, which will be a security to you from your Lord, and relics of the House of Moses and the House Aaron. It will be carried by the Angels. This is the evidence for you if you have faith“(2:248).  The Ark with us is as the Ark among the Israelites. The family at whose front-door the Ark arrived would receive Prophethood. To whomever of us the Arms are transferred, he receives Imamate. My father wore the Coats of Arms of the Messenger of Allah. It would reach the earth, and leave marks. I wore it also, and it reached the earth and sometimes it would not. When the Qaim from us who will rise to establish heavenly authority on earth will come, it will fit him perfectly, if Allah would so will.”
