Unaware of your own neighbour?


Seyyed  JawAd   Ameli, a  great  Mojtahed, was  having  his dinner
when someone  knocked at  his door. A  servant from  his  master,
AyatollAh Seyyed Mahdi Bahrol Uloom appeared and said: “Your master
has sent for you immediately. He has just sat down for his dinner
but refuses to eat till he sees you.”

There was no time to lose. Seyyed Ameli left his  dinner and rushed
to Seyyed  Bahrul  Uloom’s  residence. Just as he entered, the master
looked disapprovingly  at him  and  said: “Seyyid Jawad! You Have no
fear of Allah! Don’t you feel ashamed of Allah?”

This came  as  a thunderbolt, because  he  could not remember doing
anything to incur the wrath of his master. Hesitantly he asked: “My
master may guide me where I have failed.”

“It is now a week  that  your neighbour  and his family are without
wheat or rice. They were  buying some dates from a grocer on credit
and  today  the grocer  refused to grant him any further credit. He
returned home  empty-handed  and  the family is without a morsel of
food,” Seyyed Mehdi said.

Seyed  JawAd  was taken  by surprise. ” By Allah, ” he said,” I have no
knowledge about this.”
“That is why I am displeased all the more.  How can you be   unaware of
your own neighbour? Seven days of difficulties have passed and you tell
me that you do not know about it. Well, if you had  known  about it and
ignored him despite your knowledge, then you would not even be a Muslim,
Syyed Mahdi admonished.

And then Seyyed Mahdi  Bahrul Uloom instructed him to take all the dishes
of  food  before him  to the neighbour. “Sit with him to eat, so that he
does not feel ashamed. And take this sum for his future ration. Place it
under  his  pillow or carpet so that he is not humiliated. And  inform me
when this work is completed. Till then, I shall not eat.”
