    Question regarding a supposed narration

    Thank you both for your responses, Jazakum Allah khair!
  2. Salam Alykom There is a widely spread quote that goes like this: "Work for this life as if you are going to live forever, work for the hereafter as if you are going to die tomorrow" which apparently is attributed to Imam Ali (a.s), however while searching for a source I couldn't find any. But while searching, I noticed that a similar quote seems to come from one of the other Imams (I think Imam Hassan a.s or Imam Kazem a.s), anyone who got the source for this and is it reliable? JazakumAllah Khair, Wsalam

    Ghulu: The Case of Mughira the Sorcerer

    Salam brother Thank you for sharing this, very interesting to read! Just one question regarding this statement: "The first person I heard abusing Aba Bakr and Umar was al-Mughira b. Sa’id" Weren't the Imams a.s speaking bad about the two themselves before Mughira l.a?

    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.
  6. 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!

    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/

    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

    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)?

    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
