Religious truth & wisdom to bless your life

Keep repenting and repeating secretly in mind: "God is enough for me and I bear witness that there is no other worthy of worship than the Almighty Creator alone" for the joy and abundance of God to flow in.
(Surat al-Baqarah 2:163)

Whoever makes the Hereafter (aims for piety & righteousness to attain salvation) his/her goal, Allah (english: God) makes his/her heart rich, and organizes his/her affairs, and the world comes to him/her whether it wants to or not.
(Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2465)

And God is the most merciful and loving. The God Almighty said: By My might and majesty, I will continue to forgive them, as long as they seek My forgiveness.
(Musnad Aḥmad 11237)

And God protects the faithul more than a caring Mother protects her child.
(Sahih al-Bukhari 5999)

Do not perform idolatry, impiety, disrespect for parents. Never endanger lives (saving one life is like saving whole humanity). Do not commit theft, adultery, false witness (disregard all cruel conspiracies towards innocent believers), and do not envy.
(Surat al-An’am 6:151-153)

The Messenger of God [PBUH] used to stress charity in his sermons, and prohibit mutilation. But protect truth and believers at all costs.
(Sunan an-Nasa'i 4047)

There must be no racism, sects, tribes, or gangs amongst you, and take special care of women, and increased rewards get those who educate women especially who suffer in calamities.
(The Last Sermon, Riyad as-Salihin 278)

Holy Prophet [PBUH] raised the status of and established legal rights for women which were never present before, and protected them from harassment, and stressed duty and good treatment to mother. Also, completely prohibited injustice towards girl-children (unjust people used to get rid of them for financial reasons).

(Sahih al-Bukhari 3446, Al-Adab Al-Mufrad 5, al-Baqarah 2:228)

All people are practically beleivers if they believe in one God, The Prophets (some of them: Solomon, Moses, Jesus) and The Seal of Prophets (Muhammad) peace be upon them. That is, do not be quick to judge and leave judgment to God except when there is direct threat to righteous beleivers.

Muhammad [PBUH] was most akin to Jesus [PBUH], who is coming back, and the best of people will be under protection of Jesus [PBUH].
(Riyad as-Salihin 1808)

Some of The Last Words of God via The Last Prophet [PBUH]

This combination will produce and amplify all the positive results from this house. Accordingly, it indicates (like timepiece) being blessed with (by God) a great amount of luck, fortune, and prosperity. In addition to that, it promotes becoming successful and high achievements. Furthermore, as the Sun is the significator of Father, it indicates harmonious relations with one’s father, who is also blessed with longevity and good health.

Possible Dharma-Karmadhipati Yoga

If Sun in Leo as 9th house lord gets connected with 10th house lord via mutual reception (exchange of signs, mutual aspect), it produces the most powerful Raja Yoga, which is distinctively called a Dharma-Karmadhipati Yoga.

Thereby Dharma represents the 9th house and Karma the 10th house. The connection between these houses indicates righteous (Dharma) actions (Karma) and various good deeds.

In addition to that, these pious deeds of this combination promote becoming renowned, respected, and powerful in society and blessed with king-like status and position.

Classical Interpretation

Bhrigu Sutras

In Bhrigu Sutram, it is mentioned that individuals with this combination are extremely faithful and devoted to God. They will be religious from the soul.

However, with the influence of a natural malefic and dominant planet Sun in the 9th house of the father, there will be some opposition or difference of views with one’s father. There are also dominance issues between the natives and their fathers.

On the other hand, if Sun is in good dignity in this house, that is, in its own or exaltation sign, the auspicious results will predominate and negate the malefic effects.

As a result of the strong Sun in this house, the natives with this combination will be fortunate regarding romance. That is, they will enjoy good feelings shared with their partner.

In addition to that, the native will also be blessed with good children who will bring happiness and brightness to the life of the native.

As the 9th house is the house of luck, prosperity, and abundance, a strong Sun in this house provides ample wealth to people with this combination. They are naturally lucky and fortunate.

The father of the native despite being dominant is also very religious, righteous, humble, and free from major issues in life.

Not only their father, but the natives themselves are very righteous, moral, ethical, humble, and religious. They will show a great amount of respect to a higher power, God. They will be extremely devoted to serving the almighty, as Sun itself is a Sattvic planet as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

However, if Sun is in bad dignity, afflicted by inimical planets, or fallen in this house, it promotes some negative results.

As a result, the relationship with the father suffers tremendously. the native finds it almost impossible to find agreements with their father which takes all the fatherly happiness away.

It is also said to affect the longevity of the father of the native adversely due to loss of vitality.

On the other hand, if Sun is fallen but saved by an aspect from or through association with a functional benefic planet, it saves the father from bad results. It also relieves the debilitation of the Sun and saves from other negative results to some extent.

Brihat Jataka

In this classical source, the results from a positive case scenario of a strong Sun with good dignity are emphasized.

Namely, it mentions that such individuals with this combination will be fortunate regarding progeny, finances, and happiness.


In this classical source, the same positive results are mentioned like in Bhrigu Sutras.


In this classical source, it is mentioned that the effect of a natural malefic planet Sun on the 9th house affects the sense of contentment of the father adversely. As a result, the father is constantly unsatisfied.

These are default results without any positive impact on Sun from other planets.

Chamatkara Chintamani

In Chamatkara Chintamani, it is stated that such individuals are constantly stressed and immoral in behavior.

It is also mentioned that they will be involved in religious activities but not with pure intentions.

Additionally, such individuals will be troubled by their siblings because Sun casts a direct aspect upon the 3rd house of younger siblings.

As the 9th house elongs to the triangle of righteousness, the positioning of the Sun gives a clue whether the native is ethically aligned or not.

In this scripture, the results of an average Sun with bad dignity are mentioned. Thus, the weakness of the Sun causes being bereft of morality, righteousness, faith, and higher wisdom which is the reason for the results mentioned in this classical source.

    • Hello Eesha

      When considering the details you mentioned here you are able to attain wisdom and fortune through hard work and ultimate self-discipline. The more obstacles you have, the more chances there are to grow.

      Generally speaking, this combination brings better results if you discipline yourself to follow a moral and righteous life path.

      You are not blessed by having everything working out easily, but by righteously fighting your way to your goals.

      Best wishes

  • This was all very interesting. I have sun in Leo in the 9th house that is also conjunct Venus in Leo in the 9th. I notice that I’m very interested in religion and spirituality more so then anything else in my life. I feel as if I’m on a path of spiritual understanding. Is there anything else you might be able to tell me about these aspects? Thanks!
