  1. Brother I give up when you say that Ayatullah Khameini and Sheikh Nimr are of the same level.

    Reverts are the best.
  3. It is comparative brother, some things are more tricky and complicated than others and hence require greater depth in all those fore mentioned fields. Further when you understand the first you will begin to understand that contrary opinion only carries weight when the field and skill levels are the same.
  4. I do not have the intelligence nor the resources nor the piety to make a judgement call and hence defer my decision to the Leader. Makes life easy. The most difficult bit is choosing the Leader, it is the Leader who makes it easy for us. Piety is a condition along with the knowledge. Hence anyone who offers a contrary opinion on Syria is either not properly informed or thinks he knows better, both of which positions are flawed.

    Quranic/Biblical stories as allegory?

    These stories have many layers of understanding. Thank God for the yearly ritual of Ashura and the visitations of the shrines the being literal of these events is kept sacrosanct. This seems to be a new technique from marking events from Adam(as) to the other Prophets(as) and eventually in the culmination of our Holy Prophet(sawws) as allegorical and the death of monotheism, Not to worry Husayn (as) is there to safeguard it.

    US-UK-France Launch Attacks on Syria

    It is not about the CW . it is about hegemony and the PetroDollar. And a bully never fights alone and will always have his appeasers.

    Ali in the athaan

    Can't seem to find it but had read that if you read it with the intention of compulsory then the adhan and the iqamah are void. Also please note that the adhan and the iqamah are not compulsory either.

    Ali in the athaan

    This is one of the problems when one has not mastered the entirety of getting to either issuing rulings or of usul derivations. A lot of the modern western educated religious students also get ahead of themselves because they have western Uni education under their belt as well. A sort of an arrogance creeps in. It is good to discuss and learn but never in a challenging manner for that will never teach you the right from the wrong. Discuss with inquisitiveness because you genuinely want to learn. What the author of that article is saying is that he has more knowledge about this issue than the Maraja and that the Maraja have not come across the texts of previous Mujtahids. So he has found a new secret that the Maraja were unaware of and we should now go into his taqleed, otherwise why even try and convince us. What the present day Mujtahids say is absolutely correct and what this pseudo scholar is saying is devoid of all logic and goes against the spirit of the hadith of rulings for changing circumstance. This person even does not know what Dars e Kharij is and the subjects those people have to cover to reach this stage. I will quote Ayatullah Bashir Najafi in that he says these people should come here and discuss with us and prove to us what they are saying but having the knowledge of derivation. Just as an example it will be difficult to discuss maths equations with some one who has only seen the figures and numbers and thinks he knows all.
  9. Ammar is not pro Tatbir and has spoken against it if I am correct. Hi is not a Shirazi and is a Sistani if I am correct again or now probably does tabeed. The Islamic Pulse people do not call non WF shias an non shias. Wilayat e Faqih is not just a theory anymore, it is being implemented in IRI. It is our natural progression from a Marja to ruling a state. People will take time to understand this and that is fine. Not everyone is at the same level of understanding.

    'Ali (as) in salat

    Bro they were right for their time and now these Mujtahids are right for their time. They have no where made it wajib and infact if you consider it wajib then your Adhan and Iqamah are void. Anyway we each have to follow our paths with utmost sincerity. Thanks bro

    'Ali (as) in salat

    For the OT Adhan and Iqamah are both recommended obligatory/Mustahab and Salah is Wajib. Hope the above answers also answer your questions to an extent.

    'Ali (as) in salat

    Dear brother IR Perhaps my questions might not have been framed very clearly and well Let me say that ours is Living Ijtehad whilst in their Ijtehad 'the doors are closed'. Which in turn resonates with the Hadith(paraphrasing) that in emerging times refer to the fuquha. Correct me but Ijtehad of a prior Marja is allowed if you have followed him while he was alive and you believe he has greater knowledge than the living Mujtahid you refer to. What you will notice here is that the Taqlid is still of the living Mujtahid and newer situations might arise for which the deceased Marja might not have given a ruling. From Agha Sistani (may Allah SWT prolong his life) below. 9. If a Mujtahid, who is followed by a person dies, his category will be the same as when he was alive. Based on this, if he is more learned than a living Mujtahid, the follower who has a general notion about the variation in the day to day Masae'l, must continue to remain in his taqlid. And if the living Mujtahid is more learned, then the follower must turn to him for taqlid. The term 'taqlid' used here implies only an intention to follow a particular Mujtahid, and does not include having acted acco rding to his fatwa. 10. If a person acts according to the fatwa of a Mujtahid in certain matter, and after the death of that Mujtahid, he follows a living Mujtahid in that matter according to his obligation, he cannot act again according to the fatwa of the dead Mujtahid. So being aware of all Ahadith and rulings of prior Ulema the present Living Mujtahid is giving a Fatwa as per the present situation and circumstances. Hope that answers your questions bro.

    Bro shiaman14, you completely missed the point but that is fine. Let us get back to the topic now, shall we.......and let us not drift.

    'Ali (as) in salat

    Bro SMHA my questions to bro IR might just answer your questions too. See if you can answer or shall we wait for IR. Just refreshing Brother IR 1. What is the difference between Shia and Sunni Ijtehad from a timeline point of view? 2. Do you think what you write in terms of what was recited earlier and what the prior Ulema said not known by the Living Mujtahids who formulated these present opinions?

    The brother IR has a valid point and one needs to explain the reasons why or just say ask someone more knowledgeable. I will be back in a little while to explain.

    Would you befriend a Wahhabi?

    Why not? Only the rejectors or the Nasibis can be classified as not good to be friends with.

    Judgmental Shias

    Especially on Shiachat we should be away from forming groups. And we should see that if we happen to be excessively arguing with every other person on every other thread, then perhaps there might be a problem within. And we should take positive action to try and eliminate these negative traits immediately.

    More Important: Muhammad (saw) or Quran

    The Holy Prophet(sawws) was the exception, he could marry more than 4 and at the time of his passing away he had nine. The Salatul Layl was compulsory for him. He could fast continuously for more than a day. These are the 3 I am aware of. Someone more knowledgeable will be able to shed more light on this.

    How can we prove taqleed to akhbaari?

    [S.V. Mir Ahmad Ali 2:2] This is the book; there is no doubt in it, {it is} a guidance to those who safeguard themselves with full awareness of divine laws. I think the bold above is a beautiful translation of the word 'muttaqin' and like different signs are sufficient for different people this suffices for me in that in order to ensure, or let us for arguments sake say closer to, the requirement of getting as close to the divine order with the maximum certainty, one definitely has to refer to one who is more knowledgeable for without that one is lost. This is especially valid in these times of life being easy and yet not easy because of information overload and false information. I know they have their own arguments for this also but on the flip side life is made so much safer and easier by just consulting the risala of your marja on the net in English and that is that. They might say that we act on differing fatwas but the same applies to them for they act on differing hadith and that is what we entrust the marja to do. The marja does not sit in a room sorting this stuff out but rather he presents his 'paper' to his seniors and peers and students and it is after that scrutiny only does he form an opinion/get the approval on just one fatwa. The difference of a knowledgeable man is progression whereas the difference of an ignorant person is 'fitnah' And this is where the 1 reward for a wrong ijtehad and 2 for a right one comes in. Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى loves striving in his cause and for his sake as per the prescribed route and methodology for otherwise your rebellious nature is coming through. May Allahسُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى save us all.

    How can we prove taqleed to akhbaari?

    1. Can you see bro where you are heading by making reference to Bukhari. Him you do not trust yet take hadith from him. Does this tell you that the hadith no matter how collected is different from the person and his opinion or not as in his case. Luckily in the case of Shaykh Tusi you trust him and take the hadith but not his opinion as that opinion is his own and is subjective to his interpretation. The opinions are not the words of the hadith but only the opinions are the words of the scholar. The Akhbari brothers might have serious disagreement with our present scholars but when that scholar narrates a hadith from the books they will not reject it. 2. Look up google and especially wikishia please for that will save space for staying on topic. 3. If you know then I do not need to repeat it, and so does his stance make it any clearer that hadith and opinions are separate. Thanks bro and if there is anything further please do not hesitate.

    In your defence you have quoted below that you quote Bukhari a lot more than me. Should explain things to you bro that being against Bukhari is not the same as not accepting his correct as per us Hadith. Being trustworthy and as I explained in last post about science of hadith collection. These hadith do not belong to Shaykh Tusi but his opinion on jurisprudence is his own. So one cannot not accept the hadith but the interpretation and opinion one has the choice not to accept. We are not the talibs that all have to agree on our opinions. Are we on the same page now and do keep asking your questions if there are any further confusions. BTW are you aware of Ayatullah Khoei's stance on Taqleed with regards to sources and that probably sums up for all others' as well.
