  1. Fundamental Question: Heaven is a place of eternal light and happiness as a reward for those who did well in the world. Hell is a place of eternal burning and pain as a reward for those who did poorly in the world. Two extremes. From what I know you're one or the other. Where is the in-between? What is the difference between the one in the lowest heaven and the one in the highest (least awful) hell?
  2. Any idea where the hand folding comes from? Always found it weird how they say its proper. Why would there be a dispute on this type of thing?
  3. So 85% of the Muslim population are offering invalid prayer... :0
  4. The legion of devils... What is the concept? How did they come to be? Looking for some clarification if there are any answers. Thanks
  5. 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.
  6. 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

  8. The lowest sky? What does that mean?
  9. 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?
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
