Photo: Mirza Reza Kermani, born in Kerman, Iran and died on August 10, 1896 in Tehran, was an adherent of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and an Iranian revolutionary. On April 30, 1896, Kermani assassinated Nasser-al-Din Shah in the Shah Abdol Azim shrine. According to Professor Nahid Pirnazar at UCLA, he is reported to have said "I had a chance to kill him (the Shah) before, but I didn't because the Jews were celebrating their picnic after the 8th day of Passover. I did not want the Jews to be accused of killing the Shah." It is said that the revolver used to assassinate him was old and rusty, and had he worn a thicker overcoat, or been shot from a longer range, he would have survived the attempt on his life. Shortly before dying the Shah is reported to have said "I will rule you differently if I survive!" After killing the Shah, Mirza Reza Kermani escaped towards the border of the Ottoman Empire. Nasser-al-Din successor Mozaffar-al-din Shah sent a detachment of troops on camels to find Mirza Reza Kermani to avenge his father's death. He was captured at the Ottoman border. After months of interrogation, Kermani was executed on August 10, 1896 in order to be used as an example.

When the angels say, "O Lord, these servants of Yours are intending to perform a negative action," Allah the Exalted and Glorious responds:

Observe these servants. If they perform the negative action, inscribe in their books one negative action. If they refrain, inscribe for these servants a good action, but only if they refrain for My Sake. 

(Khabar 71 recorded in Ibn Arabi's Mishkat al-Anwar reported by the sage al-Baghawi. Khabar go back to God without a complete chain via the Prophet, and are mostly taken from well-known collections, such as those by Muslim or Tirmidhi)

'An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy'
B
Oliver Leaman  (Author)

Purchase Book:

Amazon.com

Description:


Islamic philosophy is a unique and fascinating form of thought, and particular interest lies in its classical (Greek-influenced) period, when many of the ideas of Greek philosophy were used to explore the issues and theoretical problems which arise in trying to understand the Qur'an and Islamic practice. In this revised and expanded 2001 edition of his classic introductory work, Oliver Leaman examines the distinctive features of Classical Islamic philosophy and offers detailed accounts of major individual thinkers. In contrast to many previous studies that have treated this subject as only of historical interest, he offers analysis of the key arguments within Islamic philosophy so that the reader can engage with them and assess their strengths and weaknesses. His book will interest a wide range of readers in philosophy, religious studies and Islamic studies.
