  3. Bidah In Shia Islam

    (bismillah) (salam) Dear All, I have would like to put this topic forward and discuss this. Here is a beautiful hadeeth from our 6th Imaam (عليه السلام) showing just how crucial it is to expose bid`ah (innovation) that people create in Islaam, and the great reward you will receive, insha’Allaah, if you were to expose these bid`ah. مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ دَاوُدَ بْنِ سِرْحَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِذَا رَأَيْتُمْ أَهْلَ الرَّيْبِ وَ الْبِدَعِ مِنْ بَعْدِي فَأَظْهِرُوا الْبَرَاءَةَ مِنْهُمْ وَ أَكْثِرُوا مِنْ سَبِّهِمْ وَ الْقَوْلَ فِيهِمْ وَ الْوَقِيعَةَ وَ بَاهِتُوهُمْ كَيْلَا يَطْمَعُوا فِي الْفَسَادِ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ وَ يَحْذَرَهُمُ النَّاسُ وَ لَا يَتَعَلَّمُوا مِنْ بِدَعِهِمْ يَكْتُبِ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ بِذَلِكَ الْحَسَنَاتِ وَ يَرْفَعْ لَكُمْ بِهِ الدَّرَجَاتِ فِي الْآخِرَةِ The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “When you will find people of bid`ah (innovation) and doubt/suspicion after me, do baraa’ (disassociation) from them and increase in your insults (sabihim) to them, and oppose (them) and bring evidences against them so they may not become greedy in bringing fasaad (corruption) to Islam. You must warn people against them and do not learn their bid`ah (innovation). Allah will write for you hasanaat (good deeds) for this, and will raise you darajaat (levels) in the next life.’” Source: 1. Al-Kulayni, Al-Kaafi, vol. 2, ch. 159, pg. 375, hadeeth # 4 Grading: 1. Al-Majlisi said this hadeeth is SaHeeH (Authentic) à Mir’aat Al-`Uqool, vol. 11, pg. 77 (above taken from revivingalislam.com) Based on the above hadith, when thinking about the possible bidah , how firm should we be in promoting the good and forbidding the evil? Things such as: 1) Adding Ali (as) in the Adhan. With sayings such as ashadunnah aliyun waliullah, ashadu anna aliyun hujjutullah, or the long version : ashadu anna ameerul momineen wal imamul motaqeen aliyun hujutullah. 2) Hitting the chest as a tradition after a muharram lecture. 3) Use of weapons to cause self harm, such as zanjeer or tatbeer. 4) Some shias adding ali (as) in the Tashahud in salat. What should our position be without causing a disunity amongst the shias. Salaam Ali
  4. aqeeq?

    (bismillah) (salaam) I dont know if this is a cultural or relgious thing, but i am very confused regarding this and would like someone to guide me on this. My mother told me since i was a child, that wearing of a aqeeq (ring) can bring sucess in ones life or destruction One person must read duas and Allah swt will give him a dream to say if this ring is good for me or bad, if its good i can caryr on wearing it if its bad i shouldnt wear this. is this correct? if it is can someone please post the duas for this if its incorrect plz tell me personally i think it dont make sense, but if theres a dua or hadith which is authentic, that will prove otherwise jazakallah khair ali

    salaam. There is also Kamil Ziyarat, Mishkatul Anwar, Kitab Sulaym Qays, Behar Al Anwar around 4 volumes so far have been translated i believe. I do know more is on the way inshallah. Plus Al Kafi which i ordered just yesterday, is available in full.
  6. Salaam All. I am considering purchasing the Al Kafi books on here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Al-Kafi-1-8-English-Translation/dp/0991430867/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 Has anyone purchased this, as would like to know the quality of the product please. is it worthwhile waiting for the hardcover format to come out, or is this ok? My main concern as i dont want the book cover to be all bend after reading, especially if some books have 500 pages. If its bounded properly im sure its not a problem, but just wanted to check this with others who have this Thanks.
  7. Al Kafi - PaperBack. Thoughts?

    Thanks Brother. I have got the first book of Al Kafi by Shaykj Arastu. This would take along time to complete my set if I was to wait for this to finish which is a shame, as its been over a year with no 3rd book. I personally think if Shaykh Arastu authenticates each hadith from sources and with explanation on this too, i would have no problem ordering the books again. But as i have been waiting for Al Kafi full set for such a long time, I cant wait any longer, lol. Thanks for the suggestion.
  8. Turbans/Imamah

    Well meet up together and both wear it. lol.
  9. Turbans/Imamah

    I actually like wearing a turban. But sadly i dont feel comfortable wearing this in our centres due to being the ONLY one. When i did, people asked why i wore it as i wasnt an arab. So i didnt feel comfortable, but like to wear it in salah. Sunnis wear it all the time, and feel personally more comfortable wearing it there. However than feel the odd one again when praying Salah with hands on the side (shia alert), so its a no win situation. Things need to change!
  10. Al Kafi - PaperBack. Thoughts?

    Thanks again. Thats all I needed to know. Will be ordering it all today Very exited.
  11. Al Kafi - PaperBack. Thoughts?

    Thanks brother for the reply. Ah yes i can understand it must get confusing. I just ordered Kamiul Ziyarat and was impressed that the author added notes to say which imam it was. At the time i was rather impressed. Shame its not in Al Kafi, however that wont stop me from buying it. Does the book bend by any chance after a read. I read that from someones review on it, but not sure if its that bad as he says it is. I have got sahih muslim, and sahih bukhari in hard cover so got no idea how it will be like in paperback. Thats my main concern really.
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Simple. Whats the shia hadith system like. Its seems to be so hard to keep up because of the fact the grading of the hadith seems to be changing over time? also how authentic is ''a bundle of flowers'' and ''al amili''. Is there a definate consensus of the ulemah saying everything here is sahih? cuz if its not, why have i got this at home, why am i reading it. What books can i refer to to know the authenticity of hadith, and its isnad? salaamz
  13. Arm Bangles For Karbala A Bidah?

    Salaam. I wear one just for the purpose that it has ayat kursi written on it. However mine doesnt look like the karra which the sikh wear. But with all other muslim accesories being made, I don't see the harm in wearing it. Aslong as you know its not sunnah. The only benefit could be if a dua is written on it.
  14. Additions In Adhaan

    Salaam. According to the sunni school of thought, the recitation of as salaat khairal [.....] is established part of adhaan. They do not recognise that it was 'added' later. The shia school of thought do acknowledge that 'aliun waliullah' isn't part of the adhan and have added it, althought with the intention it's not part of the adhan...
  15. (bismillah) (salam) It pains me to announce the death of one of my best friend. Mohammed Iftikhar Ahmed. From : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_midlands/4279355.stm And another article:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/west_midlands/4281367.stm Please keep these people in your prayers. Infact plz read a surah fatiha for them now. And also to my mate that survived the crash and is currently in the hospital. ya Allah. Please grant Ifti a place in paradise. Ya Allah please grant the people that died in the crash a place in paradise. Ya Allah please give your mercy on the survivor. Salaamz
  16. If Caliphate Is Not In Sunni Aqidah ..

    hmmm. Who did he kill?
  17. Marriage; Before And After

    Married for just over 6 years with 2 lovely princesses. My wife is my best friend and my 2 daughters my lifeline. Can't live without them. Just saying. Ali
  18. Marja Forbids Tatbir

    Tatbir, zanjeer is all a relatively new act introduced in the mourning ritual. Those who try to justify it use rather weak hadith to kid themselves. Do you really need a fatwa to prove this is haraam? Just Saying Ali
  19. 12Ers Believe Majority Ahle Bayt Were Misguided?

    Allah [swt] knows best what's in their hearts and he will judge each person on an individual basis, and we believe in his justice. After reading a few lines in the post above, i couldn't continue as it was really incorrect. No surprise, as it was taken from an anti shia site. I don't know what you are trying to prove from this? Ali
  20. What Proof Is There Shia Sect Is From Ahle Bayt?

    Salaam Our Imams should not be confused with the Imams of the Ahle Sunnah Madhabs. They are not the same. Our Imams are divinely appointed to guide mankind. You seem to suggest that just because they didn't physically write their works or their students didn't compile their works, they aren't on the same level and therefore the shia faith is not right. Did Nabi Adam [a.s] write a book? Did Yusuf [a.s] write a book? The prophet were sent as a guide to mankind, not as a author to gather works in writing, to collect evidence in writing to prove to the future generation with references so they may assist them in their debates. Their life is proof that they were divine. If you overthink about a subject, you make a simple thing too big and too confusing for yourself to understand. 124000 prophets were sent in the past. One may have not recognised their prophet of their time, but as soon as they have recognised them, aslong as they acknowleged and obeyed them, are they than at fault, for not accepting them sooner? If you can accept this with Nubuwat? Why not Imamat? Ponder over this please. Just ponder over the lives of the 12 imams, rather than seeing it purely on a sunni vs shia scholars basis. The fact of the matter is. No sunni or shia can say anything bad on the imams of the ahlul bayt. Infact sufis praise them sometimes in such high manner (in poetry) as if they were shias themselves (but they are not). Just saying. Ali
  21. The Book Of Sulaym Ibn Qays Al Hilali

    Why not start with Scale of Wisdom, compilation of hadith, its on amazon. Or something basic such as A Bundle of Flowers (available on al-islam.org).
  22. Let Us Be One Muslim Ummah

    Insha'Allah we should all unite. The best way to unite is to accept the differences and unite on the common grounds. So to start off this topic by mentioning Umar Ibn Khattab, is not the way forward. Let's all unite in the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficient the Most Mericful. Ali
  23. What Proof Is There Shia Sect Is From Ahle Bayt?

    Salaam Aleikum Brother. Great question and good on you for asking this. Well there are. You seem like a knowledge guy so I am sure there's no need for me to mention them all. The point is that the sunni world needed scholars after the prophet as they do not consider their own caliphs divenely appointed. Their scholarship therefore started earlier than the Shia. The Shias were being guided by the 12 imams and they were quoting the words of the prophet etc. For this reason when the occultation of the Imam started, is the same year the scholarship commenced. Why would it start before when there was an infallible Imam the masses could go to? I hope the above the make sense. Allah [swt] Knows Best. Ali
  24. (salam) Can someone provide an authentic SHIA hadith which states Imam ali (as) is higher in status than the all the prophets exept prophet muhammad (saw)... I need this, ive read this so many times, but forgot to make a note of it, so please someone tell me where this hadith is. jazkallah
  25. Salaam. I would just like to know the following please. Might sound like a silly question. I am paying aqeeqah for my daughter via muslim hands. They seem like a reputable good company for this. However I would also like to personally pay a relative that lives abroad to do the aqeeqah and distribute it to the poor. Would it be ok to do the aqeeqah sacrifice twice? Gut instinct is that its good. More the better? Just want to double check, just incase. lol Thanks Alit
