  1. All the tents were burnt down except one?

    When I think of it, could it maybe have been Imam Zainul Abedeen's (A.S) tent? I remember watching a scene where they came to his tent to kill him a.s but because of his sickness, they left him.
  2. Salam Alykom brothers and sisters! May Allah SWT accept your deeds on these sorrowful days! A friend in my class was asking if it is true that it is said that all the tents in Karbala were burnt down except for one. If yes, to whom did the tent belong to? Anyone who have heard about this before? If sources could be provided as well, that would be much appreciated!
  3. Reliable Narration: Wilaya and Thaqalayn

    Thank you brother for the explanation!
  4. Reliable Narration: Wilaya and Thaqalayn

    @Islamic Salvation Salam brother, what do you think about the claims on this page that there is only one authentic version of Hadith Al-Ghadir from Shia sources? http://ghadirkhumm.com/shia-version-hadith-al-ghadir/
  5. Why is shrimp halal ?

    Salam Alykom I think this article may answer your question: http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa2070 There are also some hadiths from Ahlulbayt A.S that specifically mentions Shrimps as Halal such as: وباسناده عن محمد بن الحسن الصفار ، عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد ، بن يونس بن عبد الرحمن ، عن أبي الحسن ( عليه السلام ) ، قال : قلت له : جعلت فداك ، ما تقول في أكل الاربيان ؟ قال : فقال لي : لا بأس بذلك والاربيان ضرب من السمك ، قال : قلت : قد روى بعض مواليك في أكل الربيثا ، قال : فقال : لا بأس به . Sahih from Yunus b. `Abd ar-Rahman from Abi ‘l-Hasan (as). He said: I said to him: May I be your sacrifice, what do you say about eating shrimp? He said: So he said to me: There is no problem with that, shrimp is a type of fish. He said: I said: Some of your companions have narrated about eating ar-ribbitha. He said: So he said: There is no problem with it. Wsalam

  7. NEW DEBATE Muhammad Hijab vs Shia Academic

    Wsalam brother Nice to see you here, I watched the debate and you did very good, may Allah SWT reward you! Are there any plans for more debates between you two (maybe more specifically about the 12 Imams a.s, going further into hadiths etc)?
  8. Do Hanafis/Hanbalis/Shafis pray like pagans?

    Very true indeed.
  9. Do Hanafis/Hanbalis/Shafis pray like pagans?

  10. Infallibility for Sahabah (companions)

    Salam brother I am not sure so can't confirm, I got the information from this article: https://web.archive.org/web/20160909101750/http://www.wilayat.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2006:verse-of-purification-a-refutation&catid=155:ahlulbait&lang=en&Itemid=121 Wsalam alykom Excretion in Shia Fiqh is obviously considered as impure. When it comes to the Prophets & Imams a.s, I do not know honestly. However according to Sheikh Suduq r.h, the Imams a.s do urinate and defecate: SHEIKH SADOOQ R.A: The Imam is born. He also has children. He gets ill and he gets cured. He eats and drinks. He urinates and defecates. He gets married. He sleeps. He forgets and he makes mistakes (1). He gets happy and sad. He laughs and cries. He lives and then dies. He is buried and the people go to visit his shrine. He is resurrected and questioned. He is rewarded and honored. He intercedes. Wsalam

  13. Imam Ali and taqqiyah?

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks that they are most likely the same person lol. Allahu A3lam
  14. Imam Ali and taqqiyah?

    Sermon 3 has previously been discussed here: Also, there is another sermon (authentic in isnad as well) where Imam Ali A.S mentions the previous caliphs in a negative manner (since you don't prefer the sermon from Nahjul Balagha): علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن محبوب، عن علي بن رئاب، ويعقوب السراج، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) أن أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) لما بويع بعد مقتل عثمان صعد المنبر فقال: الحمد لله الذي علا فاستعلى ودنا فتعالى وارتفع فوق كل منظر وأشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له وأشهد أن محمدا عبده ورسوله خاتم النبيين وحجة الله على العالمين مصدقا للرسل الأولين وكان بالمؤمنين رؤوفا رحيما فصلى الله وملائكته عليه وعلى آله. أما بعد أيها الناس فإن البغي يقود أصحابه إلى النار وإن أول من بغى على الله جل ذكره عناق بنت آدم وأول قتيل قتله الله عناق وكان مجلسها جريبا [من الأرض] في جريب وكان لها عشرون إصبعا في كل إصبع ظفران مثل المنجلين فسلط الله عز وجل عليها أسدا كالفيل وذئبا كالبعير ونسرا مثل البغل فقتلوها وقد قتل الله الجبابرة على أفضل أحوالهم وآمن ما كانوا وأمات هامان وأهلك فرعون وقد قتل عثمان، ألا وإن بليتكم قد عادت كهيئتها يوم بعث الله نبيه (صلى الله عليه وآله) والذي بعثه بالحق لتبلبلن بلبلة ولتغربلن غربلة ولتساطن سوطة القدر حتى يعود أسفلكم أعلاكم وأعلاكم أسفلكم وليسبقن سابقون كانوا قصروا وليقصرن سابقون كانوا سبقوا والله ما كتمت وشمة ولا كذبت كذبه ولقد نبئت بهذا المقام وهذا اليوم ألا وإن الخطايا خيل شمس حمل عليها أهلها وخلعت لجمها فتقحمت بهم في النار، ألا وإن التقوى مطايا ذلل حمل عليها أهلها وأعطوا . أزمتها فأوردتهم الجنة وفتحت لهم أبوابها ووجدوا ريحها وطيبها وقيل لهم: ” ادخلوها بسلام آمنين “، ألا وقد سبقني إلى هذا الامر من لم أشركه فيه ومن لم أهبه له ومن ليست له منه نوبة إلا بنبي يبعث، ألا ولا نبي بعد محمد (صلى الله عليه وآله)، أشرف منه على شفا جرف هار فانهار به في نار جهنم. حق وباطل ولكل أهل، فلئن أمر الباطل لقديما فعل ولئن قل الحق فلربما ولعل ولقلما أدبر شئ فأقبل ولئن رد عليكم أمركم أنكم سعداء وما علي إلا الجهد وإني لأخشى أن تكونوا على فترة ملتم عني ميلة كنتم فيها عندي غير محمودي الرأي ولو أشاء لقلت: عفا الله عما سلف، سبق فيه الرجلان وقام الثالث كالغراب همه بطنه، ويله لو قص جناحاه وقطع رأسه كان خيرا له، شغل عن الجنة والنار أمامه، ثلاثة واثنان خمسة ليس لهم سادس: ملك يطير بجناحيه ونبي أخذ الله بضبعيه وساع مجتهد وطالب يرجوا ومقصر في النار، اليمين والشمال مضلة والطريق الوسطى هي الجادة عليها يأتي الكتاب وآثار النبوة، هلك من ادعى وخاب من افترى إن الله أدب هذه الأمة بالسيف والسوط وليس لاحد عند الامام فيهما هوادة فاستتروا في بيوتكم وأصلحوا ذات بينكم والتوبة من ورائكم، من أبدى صفحته للحق هلك . Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Mahboub, from Ali Bin Ra’ab abd Yaqoub Al-Sarraaj who has said: Abu Abdullah (as) has narrated that: ‘Amir-ul-Momineen (as), when they had pledged allegiance to him (as) after the killing of Usman, ascended the Pulpit, so he (as) said: ‘Praise be to Allah Who is High and thus all is in His possession and He is Closer than any in the view. And I hereby testify that there is no god but Allah,One with no associates to Him, and I testify that Muhammad Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã is His servant and His Messenger Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã, the last of the Prophets and a Proof over the worlds, a ratification for the former Prophets and was kind and merciful to the Believers. The Angels sent ‘salam’ greetings of peace upon himsaww and upon hissaww Progeny(as). Having said that, O you people! The transgression (indecency) places its owner into the Fire, and the first one to transgression (commit indecency) against Allah Majestic is His Remembrance was Onaq the daughter of Adam (as), and the first one who was killed, whom Allah Killed was Onaq. And the area that she occupied when seated upon the ground measured one square acre (Jarib) of the land, and she had twenty fingers and on each of her fingers were two nails like two sickles. So Allah Mighty and Majestic Made her to be overcome by a lion which was like an elephant (in size), and a wolf which was like a camel (in size), and an eagle like a mule (in size). So they killed her. And Allah had Killed the tyrants in their best conditions, and gave Safety to those who used to be (oppressed). And He Made Hannaan to die, and destroyed the Pharaoh, and He has Killed Usman. Indeed! Your misfortunes have returned to what they were on the day Allah Sent His Prophet Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã. By the One Who Sent him by the truth, you will be confused with a (severe) confusion and be sifted with a (severe) sifting, and stirred and turned like the contents of a frying pan until your underside becomes your upper side and your upper side becomes your underside. The ones who used to be with the shortcomings will become the foremost ones, and those who used to be the foremost ones would become the people with shortcomings. By Allah! I have neither concealed, nor blocked, nor lied a lie, and I have been foretold about this place and this day. Indeed! And the sins are like uncontrollable horses which carry its riders, with its harnesses removed, plunging into the Fire. Indeed! And the piety is like a humble ride which takes its rider, along with its rein, to the Paradise, and its Doors will be opened up for them, and they will find its aroma and goodness. And it will be said to them: ‘Enter it in peace and security’. Indeed! The ones who had no association with it has preceded me to this command (Caliphate), and the ones to whom it had not been Granted to, and the ones for whom there was no chance from it except if they were to be Prophets who had been Sent. And indeed! There is no Prophet as to be after Muhammad Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã who is more noble than him over the intercession on the brink of the Fire. So they will fall with by it (their lies) in the Fire of Hell. Truth as well as falsehood, for each of them are its people. The matter of falsehood is a very old one and has been active. And if the truth is less (in practice) it is because of ‘if’ and ‘maybe’. And it is rare that if a thing gone away comes back, and if your command (Caliphate) returns to you, you would be pleased, and it is not on me except for the striving, and I am afraid that you all will end up being on the nature of your nation (away) from me, the nation that you were in beforehand and would not have a praiseworthy opinion in my sight, and if I so desire to I would say: ‘May Allah Forgive what was in the past’. Two men preceded me with regards to it (Caliphate), and the third one stood up like the Raven. His main concern was his stomach. Woe be unto him! Had his wings been clipped and his head cut-off, it would have been better for him. He was distracted from the Paradise and the Hell was in front of him. Three and two make five, there is no sixth of them – An Angel who files by his wings, and a Prophet whom Allah has Grabbed by his shoulders (Given him Divine Status), and a diligent seeker (momin), and a hopeful student, and a reducer(Muqassir) are in the Fire. The right and the left are misleading, whereas the middle path is the street on which you will come across the Book and the effects of the Prophet-hood. Destroyed is the one who makes a claim, and disillusioned is the one who fabricates that Allah Disciplined this community by the sword and the whip, and there is no leniency for either of them with the Imam. So, hide in your homes and mend your relationships in between yourselves and the repentance is behind you all. The one who turned his cheek (opposed the Imam) to the truth is destroyed.

  15. Imam Ali and divine revelation?

    It's funny how you try to portray that only Shia hadiths claim such big knowledge, but that is not the case: حدثنا عبد اللَّهِ حدثني أبي ثنا بن أبي عدي عن حُمَيْدٍ عن أَنَسٍ قال قال رسول اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم لاَ تسألوني عن شيء إلى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ الا حَدَّثْتُكُمْ. Holy prophet asws said: You cannot ask me anything till day of qayamat but that i will tell you about it sheikh shoaib says about the narration تعليق شعيب الأرنؤوط : إسناده صحيح على شرط الشيخين chain is sahih on the condition of sheikhain (i.e on the condition of Saheeh Bukhari & Muslim) sheikh albany also authenticates the narration 1 – لا تسألوني عن شيء إلى يوم القيامة إلا حدثتكم الراوي: أنس بن مالك المحدث: الألباني – المصدر: صحيح الجامع – الصفحة أو الرقم: 7308 خلاصة حكم المحدث: صحيح https://ahlubait.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/holy-prophet-asws-and-his-knowledge-till-day-of-qayamat-sahih-sunni-hadeeth/ REFERENCE NO. 1 we find abdul razaq saying in his tafsir ul quran, 3/241 عن معمر عن وهب بن عبد الله عن أبي الطفيل قال شهدت عليا وهو يخطب وهو يقول سلوني فوالله لا تسألوني عن شيء يكون إلى يوم القيامة إلا حدثتكم به وسلوني عن كتاب الله فوالله ما من آية إلا وأنا أعلم بليل نزلت أم بنهار أم في سهل أم في جبل. Ali said: “Ask me anytthing; by Allah! you cannot ask me about anything till day of qayamat but that i will tell you about it. Ask me about the Holy Book of Allah; by Allah! there is no verse in it but I know whether it was revealed in the night or during the day, on a plain field or in the steep mountains” الصنعاني، ابوبكر عبد الرزاق بن همام (متوفاى211هـ)، تفسير القرآن، ج3، ص241، تحقيق: د. مصطفى مسلم محمد ، ناشر: مكتبة الرشد ـ الرياض، الطبعة: الأولى، 1410هـ ANALYSIS OF CHAIN 1- mo’mar bin rashid ibn hajar writes معمر بن راشد الأزدي مولاهم أبو عروة البصري نزيل اليمن ثقة ثبت فاضل . العسقلاني الشافعي، أحمد بن علي بن حجر ابوالفضل (متوفاى852هـ)، تقريب التهذيب، ج1 ص541، رقم: 6809، تحقيق: محمد عوامة، ناشر: دار الرشيد – سوريا، الطبعة: الأولى، 1406 – 1986. so, he is thiqa 2- wahab in abdullah ibn hajar writes وهب بن عبد الله بن أبي دبي بموحدة مصغر الهنائي بضم الهاء ونون ومد الكوفي وقد ينسب لجده ثقة من الخامسة وروايته عن سلمان مرسلة عس تقريب التهذيب ج1 ص585، رقم: 7478 3- aamir bin wathila he is a companion of holy prophet REFERENCE NO. 2 This reference i am taking from another source, and it is from ibn abdul bar’s book “jami’i bayan ul ilm wa fadlah”; vol 1, page 464, narration 726; and researcher of the book says “chain is sahih; and all narrators are thiqa” you can see scans here https://ahlubait.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/imam-ali-asws-and-his-knowledge-till-day-of-qayamat-authentic-sunni-narration/ This is the problem when you only look at hadiths in Saheeh Bukhari & Muslim (and compare only them to for example Al-Kafi) while there are many more other collections & hadiths in Sunni literature (among those are hadiths which contradicts the ones in for example Sahih Bukhari & Muslim). If one wants to make a true and honest comparison, then one should take all the Sunni hadiths (both weak and authentic ones, from whatever collection) and then compare it to Al-Kafi and the other Shi'i hadith collection.
