  1. A documentary on Lady Fatima Ma'suma (as):
  2. Salamun alaykum. There is no وَ (wa: and) or فَ (fa: then) between the Verses. So the sequence is not based on time; rather, it is based on the importance. Therefore, the Holy Qur'an is mentioned first as it is more significant than human being. It is interesting to know that عَلّمَ has been mentioned in Chapter Al-'Alaq as well but in that Chapter, the creation of human being is mentioned first: اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذي خَلَقَ (1) Read in the Name of your Lord who created خَلَقَ الْإِنْسانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ (2) created man from a clinging mass. اقْرَأْ وَ رَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ (3) Read, and your Lord is the most generous, الَّذي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ (4) who taught by the pen, عَلَّمَ الْإِنْسانَ ما لَمْ يَعْلَمْ (5) taught man what he did not know. The reason might be the fact that in this Chapter, there is no mention of the Holy Qur'an; rather, it is about any kind of knowledge which is obtained by the pen. In this case, the creation of human being is more important. Commenting on Chapter Al-Rahman, Allamah Tabataba'i writes: و لما كان القرآن أعظم النعم قدرا و شأنا و أرفعها مكانا- لأنه كلام الله الذي يخط صراطه المستقيم و يتضمن بيان نهج السعادة التي هي غاية ما يأمله آمل و نهاية ما يسأله سائل- قدم ذكر تعليمه على سائر النعم حتى على خلق الإنس و الجن اللذين نزل القرآن لأجل تعليمهما. Al-Mizan, vol. 19 p. 94 "Since the Quran is the most important and significant blessing of Allah ... its teaching has been mentioned before other blessings even the creation of human and Jinn for whom the Qur'an was revealed".
  3. With due respect, I prefer to avoid "what if" questions! Imaginations and nothing more.
  4. Salamun alaykum. This is the content of a narration from Imam Sadiq: عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع أَنَّهُ قَالَ مَنْ قَرَأَ إِذَا أَوَى إِلَى فِرَاشِهِ قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ وَ قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَهُ بَرَاءَةً مِنَ الشِّرْكِ Al-Kafi, vol. 2 p. 626 Usually the narrations which talk about the virtues of the recitation of certain Chapters are explained by the scholars as referring to both reciting and acting upon the Verses. Now when the main message of this Chapter is to be away from disbelief and polytheism the effect of its recitation with contemplation is to be immune from Shirk.

    Salamun alaykum. Welcome to SC and congratulations for your decision. The following thread is about the same question. i hope it would help:
  6. Will we ever "see" god

    If what we mean by seeing God is seeing Him through the outer physical eye, it something totally ruled out both by the intellect and Islamic sources. The intellect: the action of seeing takes place only when things are exposed to light beams and their reflection is captured by the eye. This means that there should firstly be an external thing present and secondly it should be captured by the eye in the field of vision. Based on this we cannot see things which are behind us, whereas God is not a physical entity and He does not have the physical features of a physical being. Therefore He can not be seen with the naked eye. Islamic sources: There are verses in the Holy Quran and traditions which stipulate the impossibility of seeing God. a) The Holy Quran says: 1 - O Moses you can never see me.[1] 2 – The eyes cannot see Him.[2] b) Traditions: "God never appears before the eyes"[3] "The eyes have never seen you"[4] and “The eyes will never see him openly”[5] But if what we mean by seeing God is seeing Him through an inner witnessing and witnessing the light of the names and attributes of God in the heart, within the limits that human beings have then it is possible. Imam Ali Úáíå ÇáÓáÇã says: "Hearts can perceive Him".[6] In another tradition he says to Za'lab: "Shame on you! Eyes cannot see Him but the hearts can."[7] [1] Surah Aaraaf, Verse 143 [2] Surah Anaam, Verse 103 [3] Nahjul Balagha sermon: 49 [4] Nahjul Balagha sermon: 109 [5] Nahjul Balagha sermon: 179 [6] Nahjul Balagha sermon: 179 [7] Mizan Al Hekmat, Vol. 6, P. 190, Hadith: 12095 Source: http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa1748
  7. Why is Abu Huraira not trustworthy?

    Salamun alaykum. If you know Arabic you can see the book at: http://library.tebyan.net/ar/Viewer/Text/108386/1#1 Also see: http://ar.wikishia.net/view/أبو_هريرة
  8. Why is Abu Huraira not trustworthy?

    Concerning Abu-Hurairah's life before Islam, not much information is in hand other than what he himself has said. He says that in his childhood his only playmate was a small cat, and he himself was a poor orphan who would work for others in order not to starve. In his book, Al-Ma'aref, Daynouri says he was of the Dus tribe in Yemen who was a poor orphan that moved to Madinah in the age of thirty and was one of the companions of "Saffah" there. (The companions of Saffah are those who migrated from Makkah with the Prophet (pbuh) and since they were extremely poor and had no family there, resided in the Prophet's mosque and went through a lot of hardship during that time.)[1] Abu-Hurairah himself explains that the main purpose of him embracing Islam was for his stomach to become full and be freed of poverty, nothing more.[2] He himself reports that I was always thinking about my stomach, to the extent that some Madinians would run away from me because of the fact that I would go to their house everyday for food. He considers Ja'far ibn abi-Taleb as the highest individual after the Prophet (pbuh) because of his great hospitality towards him and has some marvelous statements regarding him.[3] In his book, Thimarul-Qulub, Tha'labi says that Abu-Hurairah would dine with Mu'awiyyah and pray behind Imam Ali (as), explaining this act by saying: Muawiyyah's food is much more oily (meaning that it is much better) and delicious, while praying behind Ali is of more virtue.[4] As for Umar punishing Abu-Hurairah as a result of him forging hadiths, one must say that first of all, it is true that although Abu-Hurairah accompanied the Prophet (pbuh) for only a year and nine months, he has narrated more hadiths from him than any other of the Prophet's companions.[5] Ibn Hazm has mentioned some of his statistics in narrating, by saying that the Musnad of Buqayy by itself contains 5374 hadiths reported by Abu-Hurairah, and Bukhari has 446 by him.[6] As Bukhari has narrated, Abu-Hurairah says: "None of the sahabah have narrated from the Prophet as much as I did, other than Abdullah ibn Amr, who would write the hadiths (after hearing them), but I wouldn’t."[7] The tremendous amount of hadiths by Abu-Hurairah worried Umar, to the extent that he whipped him and told him: "Oh Aba-Hurairah, you narrate far too many hadiths from the Prophet; I'm afraid that you will lie about him." He then warned him that if he doesn’t give up narrating, he will be sent to exile from Madinah.[8] Hence, most of his narrations belong to after Umar's death because it was after him that he wasn't afraid anymore.[9] He himself would admit: "I am narrating hadiths for you that if I was to narrate at his time, would be whipped."[10] Zuhari narrates from Ibn Salmah that I heard Abu-Hurairah saying: "We weren’t able to narrate these hadiths from Rasulullah until Umar passed away. (Do you think we were able to narrate these hadiths during the time of Umar? By God, I am still frightened by his vows of whipping me on the back."[11] He has some special principles for justifing the great number of hadiths he has narrated from the Prophet (pbuh) and says: “As long as a hadith doesn’t forbid something that is halal, or doesn’t allow what is haram, there is nothing wrong in relating it to the Prophet (pbuh).” His reason for this principle are hadiths such as the one Tabrani narrates from Abu-Hurairah that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “As long as you have reached the truth and don’t allow a haram act or forbid a halal one, there is nothing wrong in relating it to me.” He also claims that he heard the Prophet (pbuh) saying: “Anyone who narrates a hadith which pleases Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, then I have said that hadith, even though I might not have said it.”[12] This is while what has really been narrated by the Prophet (pbuh) is: “Whosoever narrates something I truly haven’t said will be in the burning Hellfire.”[13] Umar had ordered for Abu-Hurairah to be reminded of this hadith when he saw him over-doing himself in narration.[14] Abu-Hurairah and Tadlis Tadlis means for you to narrate from someone that you have been with, something that you haven’t heard from him/her, or to narrate something from a contemporary that he/she hasn’t said and imply in your way of narrating that he/she has said it.[15] It is clear that all forms of tadlis are bad and haram; it has even been referred to as the brother of lying.[16] Hadith experts say that if it is proven that a narrator has narrated using tadlis, no hadith will ever be accepted by him, even though he has only done tadlis once.[17] Daynoori and Ibn Kathir have narrated from the son of Ibn Saeed that he would say: “Fear Allah and don’t narrate hadiths for by Allah I was with Abu-Hurairah; he narrated a hadith from Rasulullah (pbuh) and one from Ka’b Ahbar, then he told some of those around us that he relates Ka’b’s hadiths to the Prophet (pbuh) and the Prophet’s to Ka’b.”[18] Hadith experts all say that Abu-Hurairah, Abadilah, Mu’awiyyah and Anas have all narrated from Ka’b Ahbar the Jew, the very person who had hypocritically become Muslim in order to trick the Muslims. Abu-Hurairah has learned the most hadiths from this person and has depended on him more than others have.[19] In reality, Ka’b has tricked him into adding superstition and imaginative material to Islam. As one can conclude from the different viewpoints on Ka’b, he has had his special ways. In his book, Tabaqatul-Huffadh, Dhahabi says: “Ka’b says: I haven’t seen anyone who hasn’t studied the Tawrah, yet is more knowledgeable than Abu-Hurairah on it.”[20] Just look at how this Jewish priest has tricked him! How can Abu-Hurairah be the most learned on the Tawrah, while he wasn’t familiar with it, and even if he was, he surely wasn’t able to read it since it is written in Hebrew, because he was an illiterate individual not even knowing Arabic literature (let alone Hebrew).[21] Bukhari narrates from Abu-Hurairah that: “The people of the book would read the Tawrah in Hebrew and explain it in Arabic for the Muslims and if I knew Hebrew, I would become one of its interpreters.”[22] Concerning him, Daynoori has written: “Since Abu-Hurairah has narrated things that none of the great Sahabas or those of his level have narrated from the Prophet (pbuh), they have accused him (of forging) and have rejected his hadiths asking how he has heard these hadiths from him, while he has never been alone with him.”[23] Daynoori says that Aisha would harshly reject him[24] and some of those who would accuse him of forgery were Umar, Uthman, Ali (as) and others. Abu-Hurairah had narrated from the Prophet (pbuh) that: “Considering women, animals and homes of bad omen is okay.” When Aisha heard of what he had said, she answered: “By the one who revealed the Quran on Abul-Qasem (meaning the holy Prophet [pbuh]), whosoever relates this hadith to the Prophet is a liar; what he has said is that during the Jahiliyyah (referring to the era of “ignorance” prior to Islam) women, animals and homes were considered of bad omen (not that the Prophet [pbuh] says that they are of bad omen).” Imam Ali (as) would say that he is the biggest liar among all people and that he is the biggest liar regarding the holy Prophet (pbuh). It has been reported that he once said: “Haddathani khalili…” (meaning that my friend (the Prophet) once told me…) Right there Imam Ali (as) stopped him, saying: “Mata kanal-nabiyyu khalilak?” (since when was the Prophet your friend?[25] Abu-Jafar Iskafi says: “Mu’awiyyah influenced a group of the sahaba and tabe’in (those who came after the Prophet and weren’t his immediate companions) to forge ugly hadiths against Ali (as). They were Abu-Hurairah, Amr ibn As and Mughayrah ibn Shu’bah of the sahaba, and Urwah ibn Zubayr of the tabe’in.[26] Concerning this specific issue, two books have been written about Abu-Hurairah: 1.

    Salamun alaykum. Ethics has no special forum while many are interested in. Why should it be merged into the forum of society? After all, main topics are individual and not social.
  10. Looking too old

  11. Spiritual Accounting (Muhasabat Al-Nafs)

    · Repetition of other formulae in supplications. The last part of the books is about the virtue of calling the Names and Attributes of Allah and its effect in fulfilling one's needs and requests. Here, the author has mentioned 3 formulae and the relevant narrations: 1. Repeating the following formula 10 times: "یا الله" (O Allah!). This prayer has been recommended in the following narration: "اشْتَكَى بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع فَقَالَ لَهُ قُلْ يَا اللَّهُ يَا اللَّهُ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ مُتَتَابِعَاتٍ فَإِنَّهُ لَمْ يَقُلْهَا مُؤْمِنٌ إِلَّا قَالَ رَبُّهُ لَبَّيْكَ عَبْدِي سَلْ حَاجَتَكَ".[1] "One of the companions of Imam Baqir complained to him [for certain problem] whereupon Imam Baqir indicated: 'say O Allah 10 times since no believer does so except that his Lord responds: 'here I am O My servant! Ask me your request'". 2. Repeating the following formula 10 times: "یا رَبّ" (O my Lord!). Imam Sadiq has been quoted as saying: "َمَنْ قَالَ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ يَا رَبِّ يَا رَبِّ قَالَ لَهُ رَبُّهُ لَبَّيْكَ سَلْ حَاجَتَكَ".[2] "Whosoever says 'O my Lord!' 10 times his Lord responds: 'here I am. Ask your request'". 3. Repeating the following formula 3 times: "أی رَبِّ" (O my Lord!). Imam Sadiq has been quoted as saying: "َإِنَّ الْعَبْدَ إِذَا قَالَ أَيْ رَبِّ ثَلَاثاً صِيحَ مِنْ فَوْقِهِ لَبَّيْكَ سَلْ تُعْطَهْ".[3] "When a servants says 'O my Lord' 3 times it will be called out from his above: 'here I am. Ask [your request] and you will be given [what you have asked for].'" Sayyid ibn Tawus ends his invaluable book with the 17th and 18th Verses of Chapter Zumar: "فَبَشِّرْ عِبادِ الَّذينَ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقَوْلَ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ أَحْسَنَهُ أُولئِكَ الَّذينَ هَداهُمُ اللَّهُ وَ أُولئِكَ هُمْ أُولُوا الْأَلْبابِ". "So give good news to My servants who listen to the word [of Allah] and follow the best [sense] of it. They are the ones whom Allah has guided, and it is they who possess intellect." Conclusion Undoubtedly, spiritual accounting, as described in this paper, is considered as an essential part of spiritual wayfaring. The guidelines, recommendations and supplications mentioned by Sayyid ibn Tawus in his Muhasaba Al-Nafs are of great value and importance for every wayfarer who aims at spiritual progress as outlined by the Holy Prophet and Infallible Imams.

  15. I need help

    Salamun alaykum. To begin with, it is a Divine blessing that you are looking for a way to get rid of a sin. Masha Allah. I have not been under the same situations as I live in an Islamic country and there are many difference. However, your story reminded me of a story about Shahid Abbas Baba'i, an Iranian Major General, who was martyred in Iran-Iraq war. One of his friends and classmates in America says: در دوران تحصیل در آمریکا روزی در بولتن خبری پایگاه «ریس» که هر هفته منتشر می­شد، مطلبی نوشته شده بود که توجه همه را به خود جلب کرد. مطلب این بود: « دانشجو بابایی ساعت ۲ نیمه شب می دود تا شیطان را از خود دور کند.» من و بابایی هم اتاق بودیم. ماجرای خبر بولتن را از او پرسیدم. او گفت: چند شب پیش بی خوابی به سرم زده بود. رفتم میدان چمن و شروع کردم به دویدن. از قضا کلنل باکستر فرمانده پایگاه با همسرش مرا دیدند و شگفت زده شدند . کلنل ماشین را نگه داشت و مرا صدا زد. نزد او رفتم. او گفت در این وقت شب برای چه می دوی؟ گفتم: خوابم نمی آمد خواستم کمی ورزش کنم تا خسته شوم .گویا توضیح من برای کلنل قابل قبول نبود او اصرار کرد تا واقعیت را برایش بگویم. به او گفتم مسائلی در اطراف من می گذرد که گاهی موجب می شود شیطان با وسوسه هایش مرا به گناه بکشاند، در دین ما توصیه شده که در چنین مواقعی بدویم یا دوش آب سرد بگیریم. آن دو با شنیدن حرفهای من تا دقایقی می خندیدند ، زیرا با ذهنیتی که نسبت به مسائل جنسی داشتند نمی توانستند رفتار مرا درک کنند. Once the bulletin of our military base wrote the following: "Baba'i runs at 2 AM to be away from Satanic desires". I asked him about it. He said: Some nights ago, I could not sleep. So I went to the court and started running. Suddenly, I happened to see Colonel Boxster and his wife who became surprised. Colonel stopped the car and ask me why I am jogging at this time. I told him that i want to get tired so that i can sleep. This explanation did not convince the colonel. Due to his insistence i had to tell him the reality. I told him that sometimes there are some situations where I feel that Satan is going to deceive me (he meant sins related to sexual desires). Our religion has advised us to, under such circumstances, take a cold shower or run. Both the colonel and his wife could not stop laughing at me for some minutes as they, based on their mentality about sexual desires, could not understand me.
