  1. If he is just a jinn, how does he have the omnipresence and and ability to whisper to and misguide everyone? How is he still alive after all this time? How can anyone be so stupid as to condemn themselves to the worst of punishments over something like bowing? I know some with think these are stupid questions but I am not very knowledgeable and if anyone could provide any clarification I would appreciate it a lot.
  2. I was just wondering why people call Imam Ali Mola e Kainat? Master of the universe seems like a pretty extreme title. I'm not very knowledgeable about these kind of things so I'm just asking if this title is ok or if if its too much. Like did the Prophet (SAW) call Imam Ali (as) this or did people just adopt it

  4. The lowest sky? What does that mean?
  5. In the Qur'an, there is the verse: "We have adorned the lowest heaven with stars" Now, we know stars exist in space. Does this mean lowest heaven=space? It would make sense, but isn't heaven supposed to be off limits for people?
  6. Sincerely, thanks for your help Ozzy. The sunnis have a different tashahud but it shoudn't matter because you're not expected to read aloud right?
  7. Thank you for the info! Do you know if they perform any sunnah prayers before or after the obligatory prayer? I know that some sunnis consider sunnat prayers wajib.
  8. Ok so, in our school, you are able to go and read jummah prayers in the main hall at lunch time. I am a Shia but the majority of the people in our school are sunnis. They don't take kindly to Shias here. They're not haters or anything like that but they're gonna pop up with all sorts of questions that I can't be bothered to answer if they know I am shia. Does anyone know how the sunni Jummah prayers usually go and is it permissible for me to pray like a sunni would (hands above navel etc.) Please just answer the question
  9. That is an encouraging thought Btw I am not an athiest. I still believe God must exist through obvious reasons.The issue is with God being the God of Islam and all things related that I sometimes question. Hope that clears it up a bit
  10. Thank you everyone for your replies. So this 'empty worship' won't count for me on the day of Judgement then? That's a bit depressing. I can't force myself to fully believe in God if I can't just yet. I am no atheist, still follow Islam but with a twist of just theism. I think it's a bit unfair that even though I'm fulfilling my obligations (albeit not wholeheartedly) they don't count for anything. So in short I HAVE to fully believe in God while following obligations or I might as well not be doing it (aside from the fact it may prevent be having to make them up if I stop) Thanks again
  11. What if Someone were to be born a Muslim Struggle with the idea of God And ending up practicing all necessities of Islam but whilst not necessarily believing that what he is doing is real. He came to this conclusion by thinkingIf there is no God, I can do whatever But if there is a God and I do whatever then I will burn in hellfire. So as a result I will use the blessing of being born a Muslim to my advantageAnd follow all requirements of being a Muslim (i.e fasting, Salah etc.) However I'm not sure in the mind if God is even there. Weird question I know.
  12. It's still not quite clear to me which view Islam holds on the origin of man. Was Adam created literally on the spot and a mate made for him in the same way? Or was it a process as some verses in the Qur'an suggest? I feel there are arguments for both to be found in the Qur'an. This website seems to hold a strong view that Islam agrees with evolution citing a number of verses in support of it. http://www.answeringislamicskeptics.com/evolution-in-islam-overview.html Although some interpretations are shaky, it does seem to have some sort of standing when looked at. What are the opinions of those on ShiaChat?
  13. Jazakallah for your inputs In summary of your replies: Yes, there were peoples before Adam and Eve, not necessarily humans, but a people. Possibly seven ages of different peoples before Adam and Eve. We are not connected with the other peoples. We follow only the line of Adam and Eve. Now it is interesting a point about these other creations. Maybe these are the ones we see in the Neanderthals and the hominids. Also, it is curious how the Neanderthals became strangely extinct with the appearance of modern humans. Recently, it has been suggested by scientists that Neanderthals were cannibals. Could this be them 'making mischief and shedding blood in the land'? Anyways, thanks a lot. Wasalaam
  14. Can you please provide references from Quran or hadith on your first point that there were indeed humans before Adam. Everything I knew points to him being the first 'man'. Were his predecessors human or something like humans? I am in the process of learning about my religion and having certainty in it. I don't want to inherit it and leave it there. If I am to believe in something then I must be convinced by it. So right now I am looking at Islam and science- the relationship between the two. Insha'Allah I will find the answers. Wassalaam
  15. Some more digging reveals that the hadith goes on to say essentially that: The people around the prophet became depressed as a result of what they heard And then the Prophet said "The 999 will be from Gog and Magog and one from the rest" In retrospect, it does sound quite dodgy. The way all the numbers are sorted out in the way they are. 999 from Gog and Magog and one the humans- seems like a ratio from a maths question almost.
