    My Friend And I Made Something

    (bismillah) (salam) how are you fellow brothers and sisters. i needed something for my books.i actually have an book shelf built in wall but with the passage of time and more books i needed something to keep my books. so my best friend was visiting my house and then we decided to make a book shelf kinda thing.

    (salam) Thank you for your response and inquiry. While the closing of the embassy does not apparently harm Iran or Canada per say - it will (and already is) definitely hurt many Iranian-Canadians living here, as well as many Shi'ite Muslims who travel to Iran for pilgrimage to the holy shrines and cities. Furthermore, we have a decent amount of Canadian students studying in the seminary in Qum and perhaps elsewhere who require services from the embassy. There are also numerous Canadians who travel to Iran either for tourism or they go for educational reasons (archaeologists, PhD students, researchers etc.). Two examples can be read here: Going to Iran and Urgent! Please help - future spouse in Iran! So the decision is essentially doing harm to the ordinary citizens and does little to effect Iran as a country it self. What is most mind-baffling is the way the media continues to portray Iran as a country, as if it is a hell-hole to live in. Every country in the world has issues and if any issue is exaggerated and presented disproportionately, it can be made to look into a big deal. The country is miles ahead in terms of education, freedom, women's rights, scientific progress and what have you. Countries lagging in these departments (many Arab countries) are never targeted, because of their close ties to USA, UK or Canada - this is blatant double-standards and hypocrisy. Wassalam

    The Secret Of Prayers

    The secret of Prayers By Mustafa Mawjee "The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays." Reminding ourselves often of our spiritual natures truly changes the quality of our lives. It helps us relax, slow down, lighten up, and generally find more space and joy in life. When we get down on ourselves or life, we can pull back and ask, "How might my soul regard this situation? What am I being invited to experience?" This shift in perspective helps us let go off the resistance that always comes with negativity. As energy once again begins to flow, our outlook brightens. "Spirituality is the sacred centre out of which all life comes. The spiritual journey is the soul's life mixing with ordinary life." If you want to live a peaceful and contented life, then remember the following: "It is not my business to think about myself. My business is to think about God. It is for God to think about me." Allah swt in Hadis-e-Qudsi: "You look after my affairs and I will take care of all your affairs"

    How Did Kerbala Save Islam?

    Who said sufism has anything to do with us? I was only saying many Shia saints disguised themselves as sufis whereas they were Shias, and its a fact. Go visit their Shrines , ask their descendants ,most of them were Shias. The 'righteous slaves' you are referring here were staunch Shias. If have any doubts go visit their places, read their works. They taught love of Ali(as) to many without declaring their sect. See Alams(flags) of Abbas(as) are still erected over their Mausoleums. BTW this thread is not about them, and your readings and experience is very limited.

    Bisemeh Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum. Thoughts: I want my Imam to come already and help the moustadh3feen. I want to see justice spread all over. I want my nafs to be pure. I want my babies to grow up and be around people who are kind and not cruel. Ya Allah, hear my requests and let me be alive to witness these events, with your permission. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Being Lebanese

    Ppl can call it 'culture' if it makes them feel better. You can call battering children 'culture' and leaving old ppl to die lonely and uncared for. What it actually is is a person being aware of a massive power difference between them and a fellow creature, one that is no harm to them and not even a cause of anxiey or concern, and choosing to abuse that power and even so far as to take enjoyment in its abuse and the pain and suffering they are causing. It doesnt matter if its s baby/child, a mentally handicapped person, an old and vulnerable person or an animal - the neglect and abuse is of the same nature. I know kids can 'know no better' to some extent, but when the awareness is there we become responsible.

    My Journey To Islam

    Salaam Brothers/Sisters Guys, it is rather lengthy but please read if you are interested :) My name is Ali. I am 17 years old and I live in NSW Australia. The main reason why I began to search for a religion is because I wanted to find the path to God. I needed a way to change my self because I was not happy with who I was. I felt sometimes that I am just terrible to people and I felt really bad for all the conflict and fighting that occurs in my family and sometimes friends. I spoke with a few friends about this and they said if anything, people are bad to you not the other way around. But I wasn't so sure. After finding Islam, I knew that it was my way out. To start living a proper life and to be an example to the people around so that one day inshAllah they might accept Islam to. So here's my story I was baptized as a catholic, but never learnt the religion. My parents were Spanish and Portuguese so they had strong ties to the catholic religion but they were not very religious at all. I never went to church, except for weddings, baptisms ect.. So I never had a proper education on the religion. Just as I was writing this I remembered an event that happened last year that is related to my story but to be honest, I can't remember if it was after I had researched Islam or before... But I think it was before. In my scripture class there was this old man and this young man, both teaching Christianity to the kids in my class. I was in the room and I kept shooting questions at him because of what he said. He was saying how he knows how is going to Heaven because he accepts Jesus as his boss and saviour. I was disagreeing with him on other things he said and afterwards I felt really stupid because he is properly right and pretty much the same religion I was in and I wanted to learn more about it and become a Christian but for some odd reason I was arguing with the teacher. When I first uncounted Islam it was through independent research online... I looked at all sorts of weird things... And eventually found the religion of Islam. I looked at it and it seemed to me like the last thing I would be interested in. And when I looked into Islam even more... I was horrified at it. People (mainly christians) said that Muslims worshipped a mood god called "Allah" and that an Arab man called Muhammad was a pedophile. May God forgive me. This scared me about islam. But that still didn't stop me doing further research. Eventually I found the Quran and saw all the amazing things inside it... I was in disbelief... But then every time I found something that made me closer to Islam there was something that drew me away from it. All through my childhood I would pray to god and ask him to help me... Even though I wasn't practicing a religion. Every night I would pray and when I didn't I would feel bad for not. After seeing the teachings of Islam I saw things that were weird or strange and out of ignorance one day I just said: "I'm going to become a Christian because Islam it too strange and different". At this stage I was really confused, upset, and I didn't have clue what to do. I aslo kept this all to myself so no one else knew what I was doing. One night I remember I was in my room about to go to bed and I was in a really upset state. I was quite emotional and I remember asking God to help me. I said please make this decision for me because I didn't know what to do. I asked him if Christianity is the right religion and you are Jesus or his son or whatever... then make me a Christian but if Islam is the right religion than make me a Muslim. I was after a sign of some sort cause I didn't know what to do. But I was still leaning towards Islam but doubt was still in my mind. After this I was quite emotional and then just went to sleep. Then things started to get really weird... After this. The next few days all I could think about was Islam.. It consumed my mind. The Quran, Muhammad, Allah, the religion.. All of it.. I couldn't explain it. All I was interested in looking up on the Internet was Islam. When I did research I found out the truth.. About Islam, Muhammad (pbuh) and everything else... I had found the source of the religion and judged it on it's teachings and not on some of it's followers like some people do unfortunately. Islam just made so much sense. I am so glad I wasn't a practicing Christian because it would of been so much harder to let go of it and become a Muslim.. I see all the time on the net, Christians who are presented with Islam and the miracles of the Quran but can't accept Islam because of the doctrine they have followed their whole lives. Then because they cant explain it, they often attempt to insult islam and the Prophet.They don't want to accept that what they believe in is wrong, and I am so grateful that I had nothing to let go off.. I pretty much had nothing to lose but everything to gain. Then on a website this man at the start if this year I think, I got in touch with a man named Najib. The website had a story about a man who embraced Islam and it was really beautiful. If you like I will post the link on here and you can see the story of the man and also my comments I made and I explained my situation there and I was overwhelmed with the support I got from Muslims.. People I didn't even know. It amazed me how well they treated each other. Anyway someone offered to help me and I got in contact with him and we have been speaking over MSN every weekend since the start of this year. He helped me so much and answered all of my questions for me. I owe him a lot for his help. Not too long after that I started to think that I really want to become a Muslim and one night when I was staying a friends place. I told two of my friends something.. Can't really remember how exactly i said it, but they guessed straight away and said are you going to become a Muslim? I was like... How did you guess that? haha. I was shocked and didn't really give them a straight answer. I was like, idk maybe.. And they said that would respect me if I did but one said I would have to be prepared for people who would say stuff to me about my beliefs and religion. Then the other one said, as long as you don't treat woman badly I am happy with you and your decision. I told them that Muslim men well good ones..would never harm their wives.. As Muhammad said: "the best among you, are the ones who are kind to their wives" or something along those lines. After I spoke to them I felt so much better but I still needed to tell my family. I just realized how much I have written now haha so I will trim it down from this point and get to the end. From then on I would speak with Najib every weekend or try to haha. It was hard with the times but he was in Holland but we managed. Every time I spoke with him it made me feel like nothing else really mattered. Just learning about Islam cleared my head and took my worries away. I had read bits and pieces of the Quran online but I wanted to buy a Quran myself and read it. So one day when we had an excursion for school I went and knew I had a chance to look at the book store. I waited til there was no one from my school in the bookshop (I was paranoid in someone seeing me buy a Quran) and went in and had a look. I must of went in and out a thousand times, not even joking. I looked at the religion section and found nothing on Islam and no Quran. I was upset but for some reason as I left I decided to look again. I was looking and looking and didn't find anything. I left the store again and I went back in later on to look at something else maybe check out a different book. But I found my self looking at the same section as before haha. But when I was looking I saw a shiny blue letters on the book and it said "The Qur'an" I couldn't believe it. I was in there looking for so long and didn't see anything and when I thought it wasn't there it almost appeared. I picked it up and flicked through the pages. I hesitated and I'm thinking... Is this a good translation? Who the guy who wrote it ect... Should I really buy it?? So I went out side AGAIN :/ haha and sat on a bench and on my phone I googled the translation of the Quran. I figured it's the only Quran there so I might as well take this opportunity and buy it, so I went back and bought it. As I was putting it in my bag, one of my friends asked what book did I buy? And I said the best book in the world haha. And then he started to try and open my bag... And I was like freaking out. I didn't want him to see what I bought even though chances are he wouldn't if know what it was.. Or maybe he would but I didn't want to take that chance. So for the next few months I read little bits of the Quran. I had to read it in secret because my family didn't know about this. During the holidays me and my brothers would go to out grandparents place some days and went I did I brought the Quran with me and went up stairs and read for hours when I should of been doing study and work for school :P but I didn't want to stop reading. I was determined to finish it. One day while up stairs I was reading the Quran and I know before you read it, its good to say... Sorry can't remember the exact words. But like ask God for protection against satan whilst reading the Quran but that time I must of forgot. So I was reading and then I hear this banging sound on the door to the room. It wasn't like a tap or anything and to be honest the first time it happened it scared the [Edited Out] out of me.. It was a big THUD and I was like... What the? Then again.., Bang! I'm thinking what is going on? So I got up and went and opened the door... I couldn't tell what was making the noise. So I shut the door and then continued reading the Quran. It happens again and I was like oh my goodness this is so annoying! So I got up again and looked out of the door... And nothing. Then I thought it might be really windy outside and the door near the window could be banging not mine.. So I looked and all the windows were closed.. And then I thought.. Hmm, this is weird.. So then I remembered that before reading the Quran I didn't ask God for protection from Satan and I was like... Sitting in the room with the Quran thinking... YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING!! Then the banging got faster.. I'm thinking... If he is banging on my door I'm screwed! I actually thought Satan was banging on the door of my room,, hahaha I couldn't explain where the noise was from... And for some reason I had enough and went to open the door... I seriously don't know how I brought my self to do it cause I was convinced that someone or something was before the door banging... So I opened it and nothings there... I was so confused haha and angry. I was like what the hell is going on!?!?! Then I went down stairs and saw that only one of my brothers were there. So I said where is Luis? And my brother Joel said I don't know. And then I thought... If this is him doing it I am going to kill him! Haha So I go up stairs again and then I see my younger brother lying under my grandparents bed, hiding from me Hahaha he was the one banging the noise I told him I was freaking out cause i didn't know what it was and he was just laughing at me haha. Afterwards I felt so stupid for thinking that Satan was behind my door banging.. That night I spoke with Najib and told him what had happened and he just couldn't stop laughing haha... I felt like such an idiot afterwards but I just couldn't explain what the banging was from. But eventually I finished reading the Quran and a few weeks later I broke the news to my mum. I had decided that it was time and I just couldn't out it off any longer. In my room before I went and spoke with her. My hands were sweating and my tummy was felling so sick... I was sooooo nervous. I had never done anything like this before and it would be the biggest shock to my mum. So I told her that night and to say the least, she didn't take it well. She cried when I told her and I was so upset that I had brought her to tears. But I said I've made my decision a long time ago and that there isn't much you can do to change my mind. She thought all Muslims were terrorists and hated western life and all this other stuff. I explained everything to her and then gave her some PDF files to read about islam. So now that I have told mum I can finally do it :D I told Najib what happened and he was zoo excited to hear that I can say shahadah. The next weekend it was a Saturday morning and it was really late online for him over there but he said he will stay up so I can say it in the morning. Eventually mum goes: "we are leaving in ten minutes" and I'm like :| NO WE NOT Hahah and I went and told her that I am going to say the shahadah online now and she said ok but be quick. S then I came back to the laptop and said the Shahadah online with Najib. My mum and brothers were already inside the car waiting for me and I'm like... Najib.. I got to go, like right now haha so I shut down the laptop and ran out side to get in the car before they left without me haha that was last week. After I said the shahadah, I felt really weird. I couldn't explain it but it just felt odd... I told Najib and he asked was it like weight being lifted off your shoulders? And I said yeah it kind of did.. But I think it was just in my head, but I wasn't sure haha Next on my list to tell was dad. I knew he wouldn't take it well, don't think he likes Muslims to say the least. But last Friday I told him. He was in disbelief. He just laughed and said: bulls$@t Dylan, your not a Muslim. I was trying not to laugh at his response and said: but I'm yeah.. Dad I am.. And he said... For a second I thought you were going to tell me you were gay. Hahaha I had quite a laugh then. I said so aren't you glad I said I'm Muslim and not gay? And he said.. I don't know which is worse Hahah. For someone that hears bad news or takes it as bad news, dad always tries to turn it into a joke. I'm laughing and I'm trying to explain that I'm not kidding. He just didn't understand why.. So I showed him so information and explained things to him. So because my parents are separated I had to tell them at different times. Mum now Alhamduliliah is so supportive and happy for me :) she really is happy that I have done this. I think likes the part of Muslims having to obey their parents :P But I've been really good to her since I've become a Muslim and hopefully one day she and dad will see the good and happiness in me and want that too. inshAllah So yeah, that's my story. I apologize for writing so much but that is close enough to the whole thing whole thing and I felt like I needed to explain everything to someone at least once. Currently now I'm still struggling but inshallah Allah will make for me a way out. What it came down to was the fact that the Quran was just too perfect to come from any other saw than God, and I can remember the day when I was reading about Islam outside looking on my iPod touch ( so no one could see what I am doing haha) and reading through the miracles of the Quran... It took my breath away and it was then that I decided that I have to be a Muslim. I recommend to anyone who wants to read a beautiful reversion story, to go to: http://islamicsunrays.com/becoming-muslim-in-america/ It is here were I got into contact with Najib and if you read the comments below you will see what I have written about my situation at the time. I as so impressed about how caring Muslims can be and so many offered to help. Unfortunately we have people from our Ummah who are harming the Muslims with the bad actions and their wrongs are affecting us all. One Muslim does something wrong and we all have to suffer. It's not fair I know, but all the negativity about Islam in the media, may very well be the handiwork of Satan in an attempt to prevent people from finding the true path. As you can see... Satan is failing because I was able to join the Religion of God and see through the rubbish of the media and so are many others everyday. That is why Islam is the fasting growing religion and no one is able to put out the light of God: "They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it." Qur'an 9:32 If you have any comments or wish to ask me anything regarding my journey to Islam I would love to hear them :) Salaam

    How Did Kerbala Save Islam?

    And your maulvis try their best to slander them. Your "scholars" condemn many sufi practices that include qawwalis, shrine visitation and the simply fact that classical sufis preached love for everyone, unlike the mullahs who are rude and abusive and thrive on hatred. Let's see what the most celebrated Sufi in Sindh had to say about Ameer-ul-Momineen (as) : Haiderium Qalandram Mastam Banda e Murtaza Ali Hastam Peshwa e tamam Rindanam Ke Sag e Koo e Sher e Yazdanam! I am Haideri (relating to Haider (as) , Qalandar and intoxicated with inspiration I am a slave of Ali Murtaza (as) I am leader of all saints Because I am a dog of the lane of Sher e Yazdan "Allah's Lion". So why don't you become a Shia of Ali (as) ?

    Proof of Imamat from Quran

    Sunnis believe in Unicorns actually rule the heavens and they come down to punish shias. The sheikhans were actually those unicorn who became human to benefit the mankind. Sunnis think that these unicorn assimilate together to form their God and can also become pretty boys on day of judgement. lets see if you can refute that......i wont accept any references from hadith books since they are all forgeries by ummayads and persians working together for the secretive brotherhood of unicorn lovers or from Quran since Aisha told sunnies that the real quran was eaten by goat.......

    Marriage, Got Some Questions

    Salam, Engagement is an entirely cultural concept and has nothing to do with Islam. There is no such thing as an Islamic engagement. In Islam, you are either married or not married (no third state of the relationship). If you have enough financial resources to (or your parents are willing to help you to acquire this) A) provide a house or apartment (even a small apartment) B )food and cloths for you and her C) Some kind of a mahr(dowry), even if it is small Then you should get married and skip the cultural engagement stuff, which usually leads to haram. If you don't have these resources at the moment, then you have two choices. A) Mutah, or temporary marriage with the understanding that you will get permenantly married once you have the resources. B )Just wait and be patient until Allah(s.w.a) gives you the resources for marriage.

    "6.32": And this world's life is naught but a play and an idle sport and certainly the abode of the hereafter is better for those who guard (against evil); do you not then understand? "29.64": And this life of the world is nothing but a sport and a play; and as for the next abode, that most surely is the life -- did they but know! "47.36": The life of this world is only idle sport and play, and if you believe and guard (against evil) He will give you your rewards, and will not ask of you your possessions. "57.20": Know that this world's life is only sport and play and gaiety and boasting among yourselves, and a vying in the multiplication of wealth and children, like the rain, whose causing the vegetation to grow, pleases the husbandmen, then it withers away so that you will see it become yellow, then it becomes dried up and broken down; and in the hereafter is a severe chastisement and (also) forgiveness from Allah and (His) pleasure; and this world's life is naught but means of deception. It is a game. The only thing that matters is to enjoin good and guard against evil through this game. :) Don't take it far too realistic and get deceived by this world.

    Coming out of the grave, the shiites faces is like full moon WHEN HE COMES OUT OF THE GRAVE, THE SHIITE'S FACE IS LIKE FULL MOON Mohammed bin al-Hasan bin Ahmed bin al-Waleed ® narrated to me that Mohammed bin al-Hasan as-Saffar narrated to him from Mohammed bin al-Hussein from Abdullah bin Jibilla from Muawiya bin Ammar from Abu Abdullah (a) from his father from his grandfather that the Prophet said to Ali : íÇ Úáíø áÞÏ ãËøáÊ Åáíø ÇõãøÊí Ýí ÇáØíä ÍÊøì ÑÃíÊ ÕÛíÑåã æßÈíÑåã ÃÑæÇÍÇð ÞÈá Ãä ÊÎáÞ ÃÌÓÇÏåã¡ æÅäøì ãÑÑÊ Èß æÈÔíÚÊß ÝÇÓÊÛÝÑÊ áßã.

I passed by you and your Shia, and sought Allah's forgiveness for you." Ali said: "O Allah's Prophet , tell me more about them." The Prophet said: "Yes, Ali . When your Shia and you will come out from your graves, your faces will be as bright as the full moon, your hardships will be alleviated, your griefs will be taken away from you, and you will be in the shadow of the Divine Throne. People will be fearful, but you will not, and will be sad, but you will not. A dining table will be installed for you while people will be called to the judgment." ____________ 37.

    BENEFITS OF AS SALAMU ALAIKUM 1. As Salamu Alaikum is a means to earn hasanaat A man passed by the Messenger of Allah while he was sitting with others, and said: As salamu alaykum. The Prophet said, He will have 10 hasanaat. Another man passed by and said: As-Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullaah (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah). The Prophet said: He will have 20 hasanaat. Another man passed by and said: As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakatuh (peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings). The Prophet said: He will have 30 hasanaat. As-Salaamu Alaikum is an aspect of Imaan Once a man asked the Prophet about which aspect of Islam was best. The Prophet replied: Feeding the hungry, and saying salam to those you know and those you don't know. As-Salamu Alaikum is a means of entering Jannah The Prophet said: You will not enter Paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I not tell you about something which, if you do it, you will love one another? Spread salaam (the greeting of peace) among you. As Salamu Alaikum gets rid of sins The Prophet also said: When two Muslims meet (give salam), and shake hands, they are forgiven their sins before they part (with each other). As Salamu Alaikum is the greeting of the people of Jannah Then, those that feared their Lord shall be driven in companies into Paradise. When they draw near its gates will be opened, and its keepers will say to them: Salamun Alaikum (Peace be upon you), you have done well. Enter and live in it for ever. (Surah Zumar:73) Even Allaah says As Salamu Alaikum Allah sends His Salam upon the people who believe in Him, especially the prophets such as Nuh (as , Ibraheem , Ismaeel , Musa , etc. (Surah as-Saffat) as well as other pious people. Al Fateha 1 In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 2 Praise be to Allah, Lord of the universe. 3 Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 4 Master of the Day of Judgment. 5 You alone we worship; You alone we ask for help. 6 Guide us in the right path: 7 The path of those whom You blessed; not of those who have deserved wrath, nor of the strayers. O Allah! Send Your Mercy and Blessings upon our master Muhammad and his family , the number which is in the Knowledge of Allah and Mercy forever

    Aslamalaykum, This is one of the main proofs that sunnis will bring forward, that because Imam Ali a.s names his children Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman then this means that it sufficient to say that they had good relations. 1. We read in history that these names were kept before and after the 3 caliphs, so the 3 caliphs were not the first to have these names 2. The Ahlul Bayt a.s knew that difficult times will come for their followers as they were spread out in different countries and just because of their links/love towards Ahlul Bayt a.s they will be persecuted. Individuals named Ali, Hassan, Hussain etc were automatically labelled as shias in those days especially under the Ummayad/Abbasids rule. This is evident even today in certain countries like Syria, Pakistan etc as followers I.D's are being checked if they have that particular name they are taken off the coaches/buses/cars and are being shot point blank. In those areas where there is high level of atrocities happening is there a crime keeping your names after the first 3 caliphs in order to protect and safeguard your lives/properties? 3. Imams whatever they did or say has open and hidden wisdom and through striving hard and by time we discover the treasures of knowledge which they try to convey to us. Like I've said earlier in my point 2 that the Imams knew the followers will have torrid time ahead of them, that's why we see lot of the Imams companions had not only the names of the first 3 caliphs but they also had names of Mu'awiya and Yazid. Now which shia in his right mind will name his children after staunch enemies of Islam, well they had to in order to protect their lives and of their families. That's why the Imam had to lead by example in order for the followers not to hesitate naming their children certain names that may dislike due to the atrocities that had taken place on the Ahlul Bayt a.s Enough said now some examples We read in Tahdheeb Vol 7 page 319 under the chapter of Dhikr Ali bin Rahba "During the Ummayad reign when information was recieved that a child that a child had been named Ali, he would be killed." Don't be surprised by the above quote as Imam Ali a.s was cursed/abused from the mimbars of the mosques for a long period, they couldn't stand His blessed name. This is a another topic for another day. The name of Abu Bakr First Abu Bakr is a kunniyat and not a name, Imam Ali a.s should have named his child after Abu Bakr's real name and not choosing Kunniya. Imam Ali a.s according to one report had a son called Abdullah and he was martyred at Karbala at the age of 25 and he had a son called Bakr, so people used to refer him as Abu Bakr. So we see that Imam Ali a.s never named his son Abu Bakr. Abul Faraj Isfahani records: "Abdullah bin Ali was 25 years of age when He was martyred in Karbala." Ref: Maqatilut Tallbiyyin Vol 1 Page 22 (d. 356) The name of Umar One of the habits of Umar Ibn Khattab was that he used change the names of many babies, has he had a habit of interfering in many matters, those who are well versed with history know exactly what I'm talking about. There are few examples but will give one example how Umar changed the name "Ajda Abi Masrooq, Umar bin Khattab changed the name of Ajda to Abdur Rahman" Ref: Al Isabah fee Tamizus Sahaba Vol 1 Page 186 No 425, Edited: Ali Muhammed Bajawi, Darul Jeel, Beirut, First Edition 1412-1992 Now he never changed the name of Imam Ali a.s son but he named Imam's child after Himself, we know exactly why he did that now. We read in Seer Alaamun Nubla by Imam Dhahabi Vol 4 Page 134 Beirut, 1413, Ninth edition, Edited Shuaib Arnaoot, Muhammed Naeem Araqasusi. "A son was born to Ali during the period of Umar ibn Khattab and the latter named the child after his own name" The name of Uthman Did he name his son after the 3rd caliph or after someone else? Abul Faraj Isfahani (d.356) records in Maqatilut Tallbiyyin in Vol 1 page 23 and Allamah Majlisii in Bihar al Anwar in vol 45 page 38 Imam Ali a.s said: "I named my son on the name of my brother, Uthman bin Mazun" So this goes to show that whatever reasons Imam named His children was definitely not because of the good relations/love that he had for the 3 caliphs

    Bismehe Ta3ala, Assalam Alikum. Our marj3as tell us to follow the law of the land. Who is that Imam? He should be deported to where he came from because he can't respect the country's laws. So don't live there, simple. Go figure you have the extremist right saying Muslims want to bring Shariah law to the west. M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

    Junk Dna?

    Im glad to see other people are as excited about this as I am. i work in a lab, for the past 5 days that is all we have been talking about, and at home, nobody really cares lol. There were supposedly 20,000 coded genes, now that is only the tip of the iceberg. The human genome is packed with at least four million gene switches that reside in bits of DNA that once were dismissed as 'junk' but that turn out to play critical roles in controlling how cells, organs and other tissues behave. The discovery, considered a major medical and scientific breakthrough, has enormous implications for human health because many complex diseases appear to be caused by tiny changes in hundreds of gene switches. ... Human DNA is 'a lot more active than we expected, and there are a lot more things happening than we expected. There also is a sort of DNA wiring system that is almost inconceivably intricate. "It is like opening a wiring closet and seeing a hairball of wires," said Mark Gerstein, an Encode researcher from Yale. "We tried to unravel this hairball and make it interpretable." about 10 feet of DNA stuffed into a microscopic nucleus of a cell -- that it fits only because it is tightly wound and coiled around itself. Encode researchers discovered that small segments of dark-matter DNA are often quite close to genes they control. In the past, when they analyzed only the uncoiled length of DNA, those controlling regions appeared to be far from the genes they affect. I can go on and on. to get a better understanding of the article check out this page , it shows you the different wording used by the media, and what really this means to have over 4 million switches, its a beginning, but well, it’s not going to be inert. Chromosomes Nucleosomes have low sequence specificity, and so we expect, in a large genome, many regions that, just by chance, have a random piece of DNA that reproducibly positions nucleosomes. Transcription factors recognize short, degenerate sequences that occur, again, just by chance, all over the genome. And so again, in a large genome, we expect plenty of reproducible but functionally irrelevant TF binding. That’s going to lead to pervasive, tissue-specific transcription at low levels, along with various chromatin marks. Transcription factor binding sites turn over fairly rapidly in evolution, and so we expect dense, complicated networks just by chance.

    So, reading from this thread Sonador has reached about a 9/10 on nasb level, Ugly jinn is a weird case, Wing i believe most of us have suggested you can leave multiple times. I mean there is no easy way to break it down for you. You are not here to learn just here to ridicule, using the same old 1200 year arguments that even our 10 year old knows of. Its a stalemate. Pick whatever you want, and not even a fly would shed tear from either side. But just go!

    Wa alaykum salaam There are Hadiths that I have seen, not sure how authentic they are but they basically state when food is served and the time to pray has come, you should eat first. I think the wisdom behind that is that you may be less focused on your Salah if you pray first as you will be thinking about the food and then it will be cold afterwards. But of course Allah knows best

    This is a long discussed issue. There are lots of things about Imamat, for example this: http://www.najaf.org.../book/19/36.htm I like this website too, because it explains our beliefs and differences with Sunnis very simply: http://www.al-islam.org/encyclopedia/ Yes, we kiss their shrines, the same way I kiss the Quran out of respect. Do I worship the Quran? No - I kiss it because I respect the contents of the Quran. In the same way, I kiss the shrine in respect of the person buried inside. Anyway - you have opened up MANY issues that will take forever to discuss. They have been discussed an infinite number of times on this website - just search for them (the search function on this website isn't very good so go to Google, type in what you want to search for, followed by 'site:shiachat.com' and this will yield better results). The main point of this thread is - Why Do Many Shia Hate The First Three Caliphs? Like I said, it's because they took Imam Ali's (as) right - that was their first crime, and this snowballed into many other things. The Prophet (pbuh) (from the orders of God) appointed Imam Ali (as) at Ghadeer to be his successor CLEARLY to all the people. Therefore, if someone else becomes leader instead of Imam Ali (as), we do not like them.

    Simply put - they stole the right from Imam Ali (as) to be the leader after the Prophet's (pbuh) death.

    All the Shia girls I know prefer facial hair on men. Some are rediculously cruel to clean shaven men, one friend even pointed a finger at one and started laughing her lungs off when she saw one clean shaven brother in a wedding. There used to be a time when clean shave was vogue, its sort of a blemish now a days, due to openly gay culture in the West. Overall who cares what women think, if you are MAN, you got to worry about what Allah (swt) has ordered you rather than worrying about some female opinions. If your concern is marriage, then obviously you want a less-superficial woman in your life, which is another reason for not worrying about their perceived likeness for a shaved face. You do what you are ordered by Allah, and they will come to you anyway.

    While I'm not a fan of his by any stretch, I can't say I disagree with what he's saying here. The Iranian government and their proxies in Lebanon have decided to put politics and power over the principle of justice and opposition to tyranny. Also keep in mind the context of his saying this was specifically to say that even though that's the case, they should not fall into sectarianism and blame the Shi`a for the actions of these few who hold power. The rest of what he was saying (about protecting the Christians, not transgressing the bounds of justice, etc) was to further re-enforce that message.

    This Canadian government is pathetic and not representative of most Canadians on foreign policy matters. They embarrass Canadians by being even more pro Zionist than US. Sickening move, and the way it is being covered in the media is also beyond sickening, all the pundits are condemning Iran even though some do not deem this move necessary.
