    [I really recommend and urge you to read this, this is purely for the intention of helping you!] Salam Alaikum, Many believe Imam Mahdi will reappear, become the king of the world, fill the world with justice, complete his mission, and die. This is true. Many also believe he is the twelfth guided imam. This is also true. But what many DONT know is that Imam Mahdi (a.j) knows every single action we do, and all the secret good deeds we perform, just as Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى knows. I do not have the source right now, but we have traditions that tell us every Wednesday and Thursday, Allah reports all of our actions to Imam Mahdi (a.j). Just how wonderful is that? We also have evidence in the Holy Quran. In Surah Tawbah (surah 9) verse 105, we read, "And say, “Go on working: Allah will see your conduct, and His Apostle and the faithful”. According to our eighth imam, Imam al-Ridha (a.s); this verse refers to the imam of the time, and it means that Allah, rasulullah (s) and the imam of the time (a.j) will be aware of what you have performed. Please, when you have a chance to commit a righteous deed, whether it be small or big; do it. There is NO shame in losing money for a good cause(not only money can make a person's day). Don't you know that Imam al-Hassan ibn Ali (a) lost ALL of his money twice in his lifetime by giving to the poor? Or that he lost half of all his money 3 times by giving/caring for the poor? Let me share just one incident from our eighth holy imam, Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (a). "His holiness was unique in his time in generosity and favoring the poor. One year, on the day of ʿArafa (the 9th day of Dhul-Hijjah), he gave away all his property. Fadhl b. Sahl said, “This is damage and loss.” His holiness said, “Never consider as a loss what through which you have obtained reward and magnanimity.” Reference- (Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 49, p. 100.) For the Muslim men and women, I urge you, when you are about to commit a sin, ask yourself, is it really worth it? If during your lifetime, you will have the honor to see the blessed face of our imam, Imam al-Hujjat al-Mahdi (a.j), how embarrassing will it feel to know that he knows you committed that one sin? Or how embarrassing will it be for him (a.j) to know you seen that poor man on the street, or that poor woman on the street, or maybe that poor child on the street, and drove by not donating a cent? Do you not know that Allah is very pleased when you commit righteous deeds? Do you not know that rasulullah, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s) smiles when you go and sit by a lonely person, and have a chat with them, ask them how their day went? Or do you not realize that all twelve of the imams (a) especially the one living (aj), pray and intercede for us because of our righteous actions? Why disappoint them? Have they not already gone through enough for us? Why do you think they had such hard lives?! It was all for our guidance! If you claim to be a Muslim and don't follow in their holy footsteps, you need to reflect. I remember seeing on TV a Wahabbi/Salafi reading through the events of Karbala and sobbing emotionally. Why? Because he is human. Human beings have emotions, brothers and sisters. We need to stop thinking only about our selves, and realize other people around us have troubles and difficulties in life as well. Why shouldn't we ease their problems, help them out, or just smile walking past them? If you go around the world, it would be hard to see someone look at you with a smile. Either they stare at you for 2 seconds and look away when you look, or they don't look at all. Trust me when I say that one smile can make someone's entire day. Brothers and sisters, we must be more aware of our actions. Everyone reads in the Holy Quran that Allah is the "All-knowing", but do we really comprehend what it means? Do we realize that what this means is that if we are in the darkest spot in the Earth and commit a sin, Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى reacts in a split second and records it? Or do we not realize that Rasulullah sees that act? How disappointing would that be? Just imagine walking to Imam al-Mahdi (aj) in his home in Kufa, and seeing a change in his face because he knows you committed that one sin? O brothers and sisters, I have not only written this for you to ease others' lives, but for your own benefits as well. Below is the dua the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s) recited when distressed or troubled, worried or sad. From al-Am: Narrated from Zayd, from his fathers, , who said: Whenever the Noble Prophet (s) was distressed or troubled he would recite the following dua: يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّومُ، يَا حَيّاً لاَ يَمُوتُ، يَا حَيُّ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، كَاشِفَ الْهَمِّ، مُجِيبَ دَعْوَةِ الْمُضْطَرِّينَ. أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَنَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدَ لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ الْمَنَّانُ، بَدِيعُ السَّمٰوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ ذُو الْجَلاَلِ وَالإِكْرَامِ، رَحْمٰنَ الدُّنْـيَا وَالآخِرَةِ وَرَحِيمَهُمَا، رَبِّ ارْحَمْنِي رَحْمَةً تُغْنِيَنِي بِهَا عَنْ رَحْمَةِ مَنْ سِوَاكَ، يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ. O Ever-living! O Ever-lasting! O Ever-living who never dies! O Ever-living there is no god but You. Remover of the troubles! Answerer of the calls of the desperate! I ask You, as all praise is due to You – there is no god but You – O Bestower of Favors! Originator of the heavens and the earth! Lord of Might and Glory! The Beneficent in this world and the next and the Merciful in them both! O Lord! Bless me with the mercy that would make me free from needing mercy from other than You, O Most Merciful of the merciful. The Noble Prophet (s) said: “Whoever, from among the Muslims, recites this dua three times is guaranteed to get what he asks for except if it (what he asks for) is a sin or if he has broken off ties with his close relatives.” http://www.duas.org/prophetprayer/43.htm#_ednref1 Salam

    From Quran يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ (5:51 O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for your Wali: they are but Wali of one another and whoever of you allies himself with them becomes, verily, one of them; behold, God does not guide such evildoers. The word 'Wali' in Arabic is very similar in meaning to the word 'Wakil', which I mentioned in my post. Wali is someone who protects someone and helps them to carry out the essential aspects of life (such as giving them financial support, helping them with their relationship with God, etc). Sometimes this verse is mistranslated and people translate 'Wali' as 'Friend' meaning we cannot be friends with Christians or Jews. This is a wrong translation. We can be friends, coworkers, do business with them, etc, but we cannot make them our 'Wali' or 'Wakil'. This verse specifically prohibits that. وَالْوَالِدَاتُ يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلاَدَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَن يُتِمَّ الرَّضَاعَةَ وَعلَى الْمَوْلُودِ لَهُ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَكِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ لاَ تُكَلَّفُ نَفْسٌ إِلاَّ وُسْعَهَا لاَ تُضَآرَّ وَالِدَةٌ بِوَلَدِهَا وَلاَ مَوْلُودٌ لَّهُ بِوَلَدِهِ وَعَلَى الْوَارِثِ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ فَإِنْ أَرَادَا فِصَالاً عَن تَرَاضٍ مِّنْهُمَا وَتَشَاوُرٍ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا وَإِنْ أَرَدتُّمْ أَن تَسْتَرْضِعُواْ أَوْلاَدَكُمْ فَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا سَلَّمْتُم مَّآ آتَيْتُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَاتَّقُواْ اللّهَ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ (2:233) 2:233 And the [divorced] mothers may nurse their children for two whole years, if they wish to complete the period of nursing; and it is incumbent upon him who has begotten the child to provide in a fair manner for their sustenance and clothing. No human being shall be burdened with more than he is well able to bear: neither shall a mother be made to suffer because of her child, nor, because of his child, he who has begotten it. And the same duty rests upon the [father's] heir. And if both [parents] decide, by mutual consent and counsel, upon separation [of mother and child], they will incur no sin [thereby]; and if you decide to entrust your children to foster-mothers, you will incur no sin provided you ensure, in a fair manner, the safety of the child which you are handing over. But remain conscious of God, and know that God sees all that you do. - This verse shows that it is the duty of the father (and noone else) to provide financially for the child and the mother. This means he is the Wali or Wakil. Here is another verse from Quran 1. The permissibility of a Muslim man marrying a woman from the ahl al-kitab (‘People of the Book’) is understood from the Qur’anic verse, “It is lawful for you to marry chaste Muslim women and chaste women of the People of the Book when you have given them their dowries.” (5:5) According to most scholars, this verse specifies or abrogates a previous verse of the Qur’an (2:221) that prohibited men and women from marrying non-Muslim polytheists. The exception in Qur’an 5:5 was only extended to men and not to women as is clear. As such, the permission to marry the ahl al-kitab only extends to men. [al-Jassas, Ahkam al-Qur’an (2:15-20); al-Qurtubi, Jami li-ahkam al-Qur’an (2:453-57)] From http://seekershub.org/ans-blog/2017/01/11/muslim-woman-not-allowed-marry-non-muslim-man/ I think this should be sufficient. There are additional hadiths on this, if you need additional proof. There are some scholars (such as Sayyid Sistani(may Allah(s.w.a) prolong his life)) who say that it is also not permissible for a muslim man to marry a Christian or Jewish women in permenant marriage (zawaj tul nikah). Also, this is not one of those issues where there is a difference between Sunni and Shia scholars. It is basically a universal opinion.

    Please, Do not follow it if you are not sure & have not yet recognized it as haqq. Dont try to ridicule the haqq. Identify it as a true path in first place then practice it. Practicing anything without knowledge is nothing but ignorance.

    Everyone is responsible for the knowledge that they have. People are rewarded or punished not only based on their apparent action, but on the belief, knowledge, and intention behind the action. The fact that Allah(s.w.a) exists, He(s.w.a) is One, All Powerful, Merciful, etc and that Muhammad(p.b.u.h) is the Messenger of Allah(s.w.a) is quite obvious. If anyone doesn't believe the preceding and would like to have a discussion, I would be glad to oblige. Any sincere person seeking the truth will find it. The only ones who don't find the truth are the ones who are not looking for it. They are not looking for it because they are averse to it. They are averse to it because they are afraid that if they find it and accept it they will have to give up something of their lusts and habits (i.e. some of the dunya which they falsely believe they can't do without). So those people who live many years and decades on this earth and never make any sort of effort to seek out the truth or reject it after they find it are people who have forgotten about their Creator(s.w.a). So their Creator(s.w.a) has forgotten about them, and since Allah(s.w.a) is the source of all happiness, goodness, peace, mercy, basically every good thing, when Allah(s.w.a) forgets about you, you have noone and nothing and the result of that is punishment (the absence of good). Especially now, in the modern world, where we have access to more information and good sources of information than any previous generation in human history, we have the responsibility to seek out the truth and once we find it to follow it.

    Will Israel-Hizbollah war break out?

    Listen, Hezbullah is part of Wilayat al faqih,... that is no secret. As part of wilayat al Faqih they adhere to the leader Syd Ali Khamanei. Wilayat al Faqih has never instigated a war ever. The western powers have started a campaign against Syria, they painted it as a revolution in disguise as a way to break the axis of resistance between Iran and Lebanon because that is the only land route between the two and Assad allows the transfer of weapons between the two. The west and ksa paid billions to syrian mercenaries to fight as well as swarmed Syria with satanic wahhabis disguised as muslims. All the groups over there are wahhabis under different labels. All of them were bred to hate and kill shias. They are there under the pretext of fighting the shia axis and not "liberating" Syria. They have shown their true colors by attacking Sayyeda Zeinab shrine and even tried to attack Lebanon numerous of times. If anyone here still thinks USA and KSA want democracy in Syria they are flat out idiots. Syd Khamanei has made a fatwa to kill the takfiri terrorist and deemed it a legal jihad. Hizbullah first went to Syria to protect the shrine of Sayyed Zeinab and then continued to rid it of takfiris. They are there as allies of Assad and have every right to be there as long as the Syrian regime allows it, which it does. The rest of the apes have no right to be in Syria.. So @Mishael im sorry hizbullah are terrorizing your apes... I hope they continue to do so until every last one of them is dead. Hizbullah is an islamic resistance, they do not go around killing women and children and raping them like the "rebels" do. They treat their prisoners humanely and do not target civilians. I know this because almost everyone in my village is hizbullah and they are the kindest, most pious, fathers, sons, and brothers you will ever meet. You on the other hand listen to what your mother tells you from saudi arabia and spread out this nonsense crap and think you know it all. Stay quiet and learn.

    My point was that scholars should be more responsible with their words. When they give such lectures, men think it's okay to expect so much from women. It's not in my head, shia scholars are becoming more misogynist and racist in their lectures. I am getting tired of people always talking about Karbala and Infallibles. These people are always telling other people to sacrifice and protect Islam like Islam is in some kind of danger, while they themselves live luxurious lives. Forget about Holy personalities and infallibles, in Today's world, it is hard to be a human being. If someone manages to act like a human, he /she deserves appreciation. I am hoping you second post was not for me.

    I really hate seeing shia praise Assad. I really respect shaykh nimr al-nimr (ra) for speaking against Assad and having a consistent stance against tyrants. You should read about Syrian involvement in the Lebanese civil war if you haven't.

    Salam my dear brother, he who is filled with knowledge, He understands intercession and does not have a problem with it. He is concerned with the fact that some shias actually do sujood to an imam's grave, and say, "O Ali! Give me Rizk, O All mighty Ali, Grant me sustenance!", and the likes of that speech. That's what he means by, "leading to shirk"

    A Creator or Creators?

    Brother Exaggeration of masoomeen(a.s) statuses? This is as per Quran “Verily, the likeness of ‘Eesa (Jesus) before Allaah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: ‘Be!’ — and he was” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:59] Ali(a.s) is Yadhullah, Ainullah, Asadullah, wajhullah and it goes on... So since Ali (a.s) is the hand of Allah do we believe that Ali(a.s) created Adam(a.s)? Brother honestly, There is nothing as such as exaggerating their status, the reason being is in order to exaggerate someone's status you have to know their limitations first and nobody knows the limit of Prophet Mohammad(saww) and Ali(a.s). No one knows their limit.
