Allah Ta’ala states in the Quran Majeed, “O believers when you come to speak with God’s messenger, offer him ahead of your conversation najwa...”

What is the meaning of the word “najwa”?

What did Amirul Mumineen SA do when this ayat was revealed?

It is the practice of Mumineen to offer najwa – that we also call salaam – to the Imam and Dai in every age, meaning they offer an amount of monetary value as a gift. Why do they do so? What is the importance and reward of doing so?

Do the Imam and Dai of the age need Mumineen’s najwa? If they do not need it, then why do they accept it?

Syedna TUS answers these questions in this Majlis, the 37th in the Majalis al Hikma series.
