    No Woman, No Drive

    Less than two days after it was posted, No Woman, No Drive has had more than three million views on YouTube. It's the most popular YouTube video in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries, and has been a big hit around the world from South Africa to Denmark to Canada. "Insanity" is the word 26-year-old comedian Hisham Fageeh uses to describe the way his video has taken off. "For two days my brain has been on fire - I can't wrap my brain around what is happening," he told the BBC. It's a satirical video set to the tune of Bob Marley's No Woman, No Cry, with the words changed to focus on driving. It was put together by Fageeh and colleagues at the production house Telfaz11, which specialises in making comedy for an online audience. In short, they wanted it to go viral.

    Shia Imams Divinity

    Our belief is that Allah always has a representative on the Earth. This representative is called a Proof (hujja) of Allah. All of the Proofs are protected by God from evil. Their duty is to be guides, leaders, rolemodels, and representatives of Allah. They speak on behalf of God, and their actions are consistent with His will. Their allies are God's followers, and their enemies are God's enemies. And they are of three types: 1) Messengers: People sent with a Book. They receive revelation both awake and asleep. 2) Prophets: These are guides who receive revelation when they are asleep. Some are sent with a special commandment or mission. 3) Imams: Guardians of the prophetic message. They are inspired. The Proofs of Allah are not "divine", they are ultimately servants of Allah. A Muslim's salvation is with Allah. But we know Allah through His messengers, His prophets, and the Imams.

    Shia Imams Divinity

    بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم I believe the nicest explanation can be seen from a Hadith from Kitab Basa'ir Al-Darajat: حدثنا أحمد بن محمد عن الحسين بن سعيد عن حماد بن عيسى عن إبراهيم بن عمر اليماني عن سليم بن قيس الهلالي عن أمير المؤمنين صلوات الله ع قال إن الله طهرنا وعصمنا وجعلنا شهداء على خلقه وحجته في ارضه وجعلنا مع القران وجعل القران معنا لا نفارقه ولا يفارقنا Narrated to us Ahmad ibn Muhammad, from Al-Husayn ibn Sa'id, from Hammad ibn 'Isa, from Ibrahim ibn 'Umar Al-Yamani, from Sulaym ibn Qays Al-Hilali, from Amir Al-Mu'mineen (saa), he said: Verily Allah purified us, and (made us) Infallible, and established us witnesses over his creation, and his proofs in his earth, and established us with the Qur'an, and established the Qur'an with us, and we do not separate from it, and it does not separate from us. Basa'ir Al-Darajat page 1 hadith 6 والسلام على من إتبع الهدى

    She can go to an Islamic judge or scholar and get him to grant the divorce. The following fatwas by Sayyid Sistani are relevant: 2425. If the husband who is responsible for the wife's maintenance, does not provide her the same, she can draw her expenses from his property without his permission. And if this is not possible, and she is obliged to earn her livelihood, and she cannot take her case to the Mujtahid, who would compel him (even by threatening him with imprisonment) to pay the maintenance, it will not be obligatory upon her to obey her husband while she is engaged in earning her livelihood. 2427. It is not permissible for the husband to abandon sexual intercourse with his youthful, permanent wife for more than 4 months, except when sexual intercourse is harmful to him, or involves unusually more effort, or when the wife herself agrees to avoid it, or if a prior stipulation to that effect was made at the time of Nikah by the husband. And in this rule, there is no difference between the situations when the husband is present, or on a journey, or whether she is a wife by permanent or temporary marriage. http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2349/ He can take another wife and/or divorce her. See also: 2421. For a woman with whom permanent marriage is contracted, it is haraam to go out of the house without the permission of her husband, though her leaving may not violate the rights of the husband. Also she should submit herself to his sexual desires, and should not prevent him from having sexual intercourse with her, without justifiable excuse. And as long as she does not fail in her duties, it is obligatory on the husband to provide for her food, clothes and housing. And if he does not provide the same, regardless of whether he is able to provide them or not, he remains indebted to the wife. 2422. If the wife does not fulfil her matrimonial duties towards her husband, she will not be entitled for the food, clothes or housing, even if she continues to live with him. But if she refuses to obey occasionally, the common verdict is that even then she cannot claim any entitlement from her husband. But this verdict is a matter of Ishkal. In any case, there is no doubt that she does not forfeit her Mahr. http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2349/ Because men and women are different, and have different rights and obligations.

    ^Why? That was pretty creative, and brilliant satire if you've been following the Saudi campaign to lift the ban on female drivers.

    From Ayatollah Ibrahim Aminis book - Imam Mahdi - Just leader of humanity This custom is common among all the Shi'is around the world. It is related that Imam Rida was present in one of the gatherings in Khurasan when the word qa'im was mentioned. At that he rose, put his right hand on his head and said: "O God, make his deliverance soon and his rising graceful! Ilzam al-nasib (1351 AH edition), p. 81

    Bismillahi ArRahmani ArRaheem It is narrated that a man came to Imam Sadiq and told him that there is X man who is cursing the Three openly in the mosque, Imam Sadiq said with disagrrement " What's wrong with him, may Allah curse him for he is (ya'ridhu bina) Ya'ridhu bina is like making us a target, it is like how you wave the red cloth for a bull or take some live humans as shields in the battles etc. وقيل للصادق عليه السلام: يا ابن رسول الله، إنا نرى في المسجد رجلا يعلن بسب أعدائكم ويسميهم، فقال: "ما له لعنه الله يعرض بنا" . وقال الله تعالى: "ولا تسبوا الذين يدعون من دون الله فيسبوا الله عدوا بغير علم ". I've heard stories about non Saudi nationals going to hajj and zeyarah of prophet, cursing publicly and going in with quarrels with the wahabis , thinking that they are safe from being killed or harmed. Brothers, know that you are not safe and that you might be targeted either by police or by masses. Also, know that these actions are frowned upon by the Shia, that you will not get their support. Also know that what you seem to see as courage action and proper rafidhi attitude is in fact a cursed attitude by our imams. Brothers, consider yourself in Saqifah when you are doing Zeyarah to prophet, consider yourself present in the day when prophet asked for a pen and paper but was given argument and quarrel, always remmeber that prophet dismissed them all who were present and said "there should be no quarrel around a prophet" Brothers, act with high respect while in the presence of our prophet, if you heard bad words, do not respond, if you heard others cursing our Imams do not respond It is narrated that Imam Sadiq said " Verliy, when I hear the man curse me in the mosque, I hide from him so he will not see me" وقال الصادق عليه السلام: "إني لأسمع الرجل في المسجد وهو يشتمني، فأستتر منه بالسارية كي لا يراني". The winner is not the loudest, the winner is not the strongest, brothers, remember that winners are the one who can resist to act lowly Imam Sadiq said " May Allah have mercy upon the man who make others like us" وقال عليه السلام: "رحم الله عبدا حببنا إلى الناس ، ولم يبغضنا إليهم"

    Maybe you are spreading the same material on multiple websites or multiple cyber users (including yourself) are copy-pasting from the same source but in another forum, a brother had this to say about the narration you have shared with us. "The Ulema of Rijaal and Hadith have classified the above narration to be weak, baseless and a fabrication. And you can read for your ownself their detail explanation regarding its weakness by referring to these classical texts: Al-Aali of as-Suyuti [1/325], Al-Mawuduaat [1/277], Ad-Daeefah [2/545], Al-Fawaaid [376], al-Thufaa ithna Ashariyyah [165-166]". Say whatever you will but as a Muslim, I refuse to believe that another pious Muslim - a member of the family of Prophet (saw) - was above Ibrahim (asws), Musa (asws), Dawood (asws), Sulaiman (asws) and 'Isa (asws) [just to name a few].

    Nah Bob would be cool, knowing it has something to do with emancipation of sorts, he'd probably endorse it. Maybe if he were like one of the "artists" of today then maybe. Also there were no instruments involved, so the mods can't remove it. :P

    Why 1/2 Hijab?

    (salam) I think the 1/2 :Hijab might be due to the height of the sister , if she is like less than 80 cm , only half the material is required for her to fully cover. Unless she has disabilities ,but let's not go into that . The other reason might be that she is not married , so she is only fulfilling half her :Deen , and :Inshallah when she marries she will wear 100% :Hijab. I also wonder if it's possible for the bros to observe 1/2 :Hijab , like any brothers here less than 80 cm ? ws

    we should never show any respect to that filthy baghi. the most mind bogglingly irritating and ignorant thing i have read in this thread is "i hate her sins not her"...wtf is that even meant to mean? thats like saying "i hate the whole holocaust thing but hitler was really nice to his mum" the sin and the sinner in this case are the same. the sin is being a baghi - a crime so serious it is forbidden to even perform janaza upon the body of a baghi - and the sinner is ammi jaan, who performed the rebellion. the sin is being a nasibi and ordering arrows to be fired at the body of an imam en route to burial. the sinner is ammi jaan. the sin is murdering the holy prophet by force feeding him poison, the sinner is ammi jaan but you shia choose in your graciousness to forgive her because imam ali (as) couldnt put her to death since the idiot ummah would have been manipulated into yet another hysteria like after the death of uthman? have you lost your minds? kamal al haideri, with all due respect, is talking to the whole world, so cannot speak his mind. this doesnt bloody mean we shia start RESPECTING her! ya rabb!
