  1. Salam, It's really not that hard to stop sending pics 'accidentally' to guys without hijab. And if it's really so hard and you don't think before sending, then delete the guys from your snap, there is no point in having them as friends on there if you know you accidentally post them on your story. Also, read about the true meaning of hijab, and you will understand that it is not only the cloth on your head but also the rest of your body, and the way you act, speak etc. If you understand the true purpose of hijab you will be hesitant about chatting to guys, and hopefully more aware of what you send to who.
  2. @Ya Allah Madad I said I did not come here to debate a wahabi on tawassul, so please stop quoting me. If you want to understand the shia view further watch this lecture.
  3. Assalamu alaikum, could somebody provide me with the correct dates for laylat al Qadr, because I am very confused about this as always. And I follow Sayed Sistani so 1st shahr ramadan was 28th may for me.
  4. omg i'm sorry!! I promise I quoted ya Allah madad, i'll try again... I think shiachat was acting weird but is it fine now?
  5. You call my arguments lame yet you don't even have any evidence or logic backing up what you're claiming. Also, for your information, I didn't only copy and paste I wrote the analysis concerning the hadiths that were relevant, you have to copy hadiths otherwise they won't be authentic. I didn't find it necessary to answer any other parts because it won't go anywhere since you will not accept any of my points, and please stop quoting me and use your brain next time, without trying to stay loyal to wahabism. The person who asked wanted proof and hadiths and ayahs from the Quran are proof, not my words. Plus I never asked to debate with you so I am not going to be extensive since I know you will only mock the shi'i beliefs
  6. I am not here to debate with you, the thread starter asked a question and I answered with clear proof. It is up to you if you take it to you or not, you are clearly ignoring very blatant proofs and coming up with your own interpretations. I would also suggest that you read about 'the calamity of thursday'. + uour argument about Ghadeer not being about leadership is not backed up all. Do you not see the line where it says 'whoever I am the leader of Ali is his leader'. I end the discussion here because you can't provide proof that what I am saying is wrong other than illogical statements that go against the teachings of Rasulallah (saw) in your own books. Ma assalama. And you can't claim to love ahlulbayt (as) while also loving their enemies.
  7. There are numerous additions where he says this exact thing, if you want to look for them then do it, but that would not suit your views. I included those ahadith that were relevant to the topic asked. If tawassul is so haram then why are both the sunni and shia schools of thought agreeing upon it? Also, it is not sufficient with loving Ahlulbayt and this is very clear. There is the event of Ghadeer to read about. Then the Messenger of Allah continued: "Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?" People cried and answered: "Yes, O' Messenger of God." Then Prophet (pbuh) held up the hand of Ali and said: "Whoever I am his leader (Mawla), Ali is his leader (Mawla). O' God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him."

(Quran 5:3) Some of Sunni references which mentioned the revelation of the above verse of Quran in Ghadir Khum after the speech of the Prophet: (1) al-Durr al-Manthur, by al-Hafiz Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, v3, p19 (2) Tarikh, by Khatib al-Baghdadi, v8, pp 290,596 from Abu Hurayra (3) Manaqaib, by Ibn Maghazali, p19 (4) History of Damascus, Ibn Asakir, v2, p75 (5) al-Itqan, by al-Suyuti, v1, p13 (6) Manaqib, by Khawarazmi al-Hanfi, p80 (7) al-Bidayah wal-Nihayah, by Ibn Kathir, v3, p213 (8) Yanabi' al-Mawaddah, by al-Qudoozi al-Hanafi, p115 (9) Nuzul al-Quran, by al-Hafiz Abu Nu'aym narrated on the authority The Quran is clear on that without the Prophet (saw) saying that Imam Ali (as) was to be his successor, Islam would not be complete. Which of you, then, will help me in this, and be my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you?’ All remained silent, except for the youthful ʿAlī who spoke up: ‘O Prophet of God, I will be thy helper in this.’ The Prophet then placed his hand on ʿAlī’s neck and said, ‘This is my brother, mine executor and my successor amongst you. Hearken unto him and obey him.’ (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah, tr. A Guilaume, The Life of Muhammad, 118) Three things were revealed to me regarding ʿAlī: he is the leader of the Muslims, the guide of the pious and chief of the radiantly devout (sayyidu’l-muslimīn, imāmu’l-muttaqīn, wa qāʾidu’l-ghurra’lmuḥajjalīn). Prophet Muhammad, (al-Hakim al-Naysaburi, Al-Mustadrak ‘ala’l-Sahihayn, Beirut 2002, 936, No. 4723) [To ‘Ali]: Are you not happy that you should have in relation to me the rank of Aaron in relation to Moses, except that there is no prophet after me. Prophet Muhammad, (Ahmad b. Shu‘ayb al-Nasa’i, Khasa’is Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali b. Abi Talib, Tehran 1998, 76) We also has ayahs of the Quran where in sunni tafsir they are agreed upon that this was revealed about Imam Ali (as), for example: Certainly your Master is Allah and His Messenger and those who believe who eshtablish prayer and give charity while they bow. And who ever takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe as a guardian, so surely the party of Allah will be victorious. (Qur’an 5:55-56) This verse is clearly referring to Imam Ali (as), as he once gave his ring to a beggar while he was bowing down in prayer. Sunni references: (1) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Ahmad Ibn Muhammad al-Tha’labi, under Verse 5:55 (2) Tafsir al-Kabir, by Ibn Jarir al-Tabari, v6, pp 186,288-289 (3) Tafsir Jamiul Hukam al-Qur’an, by Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Qurtubi, v6, p219 (4) Tafsir al-Khazin, v2, p68 (5) Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthoor, by al-Suyuti, v2, pp 293-294 (6) Tafsir al-Kashshaf, by al-Zamakhshari, Egypt 1373, v1, pp 505,649 (7) Asbab al-Nuzool, by Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, Egypt 1382, v1, p73 on the authority of Ibn Abbas (8) Asbab al-Nuzool, by al-Wahidi, on the authority of Ibn Abbas (9) Sharh al-Tjrid, by Allama Qushji (10) Ahkam al-Qur’an, al-Jassas, v2, pp 542-543 (11) Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v5, p38 (12) Kanzul Ummal, by al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, v6, p391, Tradition #5991 (13) al-Awsat, by Tabarani, narrated from Ammar Yasir (14) Ibn Mardawayh, on the authority of Ibn Abbas “O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority from among you.” (Qur’an, Surah Nisa 4:59) This verse refers to the 'Ulil Amr', meaning those in authority. And who are they? They are the twelve Imams and there is a hadith in Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal which confirms this: Abdullah ibn Masud narrates: I heard Rasulallah (saw) say: there will be 12 caliphs after me, like the 12 nuqaba' (chiefs) of the Children of Israel. The 12 chiefs he is referring to are mentioned in the following verse in the Quran: (5:12) And, indeed, God took a solemn pledge from the Children of Israel and raised up from among them twelve leaders and representatives (one from each tribe, to look after their affairs and as spiritual mentors). The twelve Imams are therefore the Ulil Amr, as well as the 12 caliphs that Rasulallah (saw) mentions, since he even described them as one of the two caliphs he is leaving behind: Zaid Ibn Thabit narrated from the Messenger of Allah (P): “Surely, I leave behind two Caliphs for you: the Book of Allah, a linked rope between heaven and earth, and my noble family, and truly these two will not be separated until they return to me at the Pool (of Kauthar).” (Kanzul-Ummal, vol. 1, p.44).
  8. Asslamu alaykum, Tawassul is not haram, actually it is one of the things that both the sunni and shia schools of thought agree upon, it is the wahhabis who have declared it haram because they do not understand the religion of Islam. I will explain to you why tawassul is not haram. First of all, tawassul is not praying to other than Allah swt, but rather asking someone beloved to Allah to make dua for you. Then you might say that Imam Ali (as) or the other Imams (as) are dead, but the Quran proves us otherwise. In Surah 2 verse 154 Allah swt says that those who are martyrs are not dead, and as we know, all Imams except Imam Mahdi were martyred: And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah , "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not. Another ayah: Think not of those who are martyred in the way of Allah as dead. Nay! They are living, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord.”(Qur’an 3:169) Clearly this ayah tells us that those who are martyred are not 'dead' as we would think, but alive but we are unaware of them, therefore, asking Imam Ali (as), Imam Hussain (as) or any other Imam or someone killed in the way of Allah swt is not haram or shirk. It is rather very clear that this is permissible and completely fine to do, if you are aware of the fact that the person you ask is not the one granting your dua. Tawassul is a concept of Islam because we as servants of Allah swt can ask him to grant us things, and he can answer, but the dua of the masomeen, who are beloved to Allah swt, will always be stronger than the dua of a regular muslim. It is very clear that the concept of tawassul does not include belief in that the Prophet (saw) or Imams (as) have any independent power from Allah. You can read more in depth here: As for the issue of tatbir, there is not one view on this in the shia school of thought. Some maraja3 prohibit it, while others such as Sayed Sadiq Shirazi encourage it, and others do not have a specific fatwa or view on tatbir. Here are views of different scholars: Grand Ayatullah Khoei: “If blood matam and hitting oneself with chains, which are practiced in Muharram, cause serious harm, or harm or ridicule the religion and sect then it is impermissible.” Al-Masa’il al-Shar’iyah, istifta’at Imam Khoei, al-Ibadat and al-Tariq al-Najah, v.2, p.445 Sayed Ali al-Sistani: Question: I want to know the status of beating our backs with knives (Zanjeer) on the day of Ashura? What is it’s status in our Fiqh? The philosophy of mourning during ‘Ashura’, is to respect the symbols of religion and remember the suffering of Imam Hussain, his companions, and his uprising to defend Islam and prevent the destruction of the religion by the Bani Umayyad dynasty. These rites must be done in such a way that in addition to serving that purpose, it draws the attention of others to these lofty goals. So those actions which are not understandable and cause misunderstandings and contempt for the religion must be avoided. Ayatullah Khomeini: “Mourning and chest beating for the “unjustly treated” (the victims of the tragedy of Karbala) is amongst the best of religious practices, but the participants must exert due diligence to avoid wounds and the flowing of blood. If such actions bring about disrepute to the religion then they are forbidden. At any rate it is reccomended that the participants refrain from such actions.” Sayed Sadiq Shirazi: As for the ritual of Tatbir (Qama Zani) it is Halal and Mustahab. As you can see there are different views on the topic, but most of them are either against the very intense tatbir or prohibit it because it can give us shias a bad name. And then there are some scholars who do not prohibit it at all. And lastly, your claim about us shias putting more emphasis on the Ahlulbayt rather than the Propthet (saw), is not true. To follow the sunnah of Rasoolallah (saw) is to follow and LOVE the Ahlulbayt (as). We emphasize the Ahlulbayt because the Prophet (saw) told us to do so. In Sunni sources you have different versions of hadith al Thaqalayn for example. /../ I am leaving behind two precious things (thaqalayn) among you. The first of the two is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light. So get hold of the Book of Allah and adhere to it." Then he urged and motivated (us) regarding the Book of Allah. Then he said, "And my Ahlul Bayt (family). I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt"'" .... (Sahih Muslim, part 7, Kitab fada'il al-­Sahabah [Maktabat wa Matba’at Muhammad ‘Ali Subayh wa Awladuhu: Cairo] pp. 122-123.) Verily, I have left behind two precious things amongst you, one of which is greater than the other. The Book of Allah, the Exalted, and my ‘itrah (kindred). So watch out how you treat these two after me, for verily they will not separate from each other until they come back to me by the side of the Pond.' Then he said 'Verily, Allah, the Almighty and the Glorious, is my master (mawla) and I am the master of every believer (mu'min).' Then he took ‘Ali, may God be pleased with him, by the hand and said, 'This (‘Ali) is the master of whomever I am his master. O God, love whoever loves him and be the enemy of his enemy.'" (Bukhari and Muslim) So as you can see the Prophet (saw) himself put a huge emphasis on the Ahlulbayt (as) and there are numerous ahadith where he speaks about the members of his family, for example Imam Ali (as). The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said: "Had there been any soul on the whole earth better than Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan and al-Husain, Allah would have commanded me to take them along with me to Mubahala. But as they were superior in dignity and respect to all human be beings, Allah confined His choice on them only for participation in Mubahala." Sunni reference: Tafsir al-Baidhawi, under the commentary of Verse 3:61 The Messenger of Allah said: "Whosoever wishes to live and die like me and enter that heaven (after death), which my lord has promised me, namely, the ever lasting heaven should acknowledge Ali as his patron after me, and after him he should acknowledge the sons of Ali, because they are the people who will never leave you outside the door of guidance nor will they let you enter the door of misguidance." Sunni references: Kanz al-Ummal, by al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, v6, p155, Tradition #2578 "Verily Allah has dedicated my wage (of prophethood) to love of my Ahlul-Bayt, and I shall question you about it on the day of judgment." Sunni references: Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p26, al-Sirah, by al-Mala The Messenger of Allah said: "He who loves me and loves these two: al-Hasan and al-Husayn, and loves their father and mother, he will be with me in Paradise." Sunni reference: Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v5, p641, Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, on the authority of Imam ‘Ali (as), Fadha’il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v2, p693, Tradition #1185, al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Ch. 11, section 1, p264 "Loving Ali (A.S.) is the Sign of Belief" "Loving Ali is the sign of belief, and hating Ali is the sign of hypocrisy" 1. Sahih Muslim, v1, p48; 2. Sahih Tirmidhi, v5, p643; 3. Sunan Ibn Majah, v1, p142; 4. Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal v1, pp 84,95,128 5. Tarikh al-Kabir, by al-Bukhari (the author of Sahih), v1, part 1, p202 6. Hilyatul Awliya', by Abu Nu'aym, v4, p185 7. Tarikh, by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi, v14, p462 Rasulullah (s) said: "Whoever leaves Ali, leaves me, whoever leaves me, leaves Allah" [Kanz ul Ummal, hadith numbers 32974 - 32976, narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar {through two chains} and Abu Dharr Ghaffari (ra). I hope that is sufficient if you want more hadiths check these pages, and if you want me to elaborate on something then please just ask.
  9. Why not latmiyat and anasheed? Even if you don't know arabic you can listen to them, try to find some that are fast and have more of a 'tatbir' vibe if you get what i mean I can post some below that you could listen too
  10. Thank you @magma ! And Happy New Year to everyone on SC
  11. Assalamu 'alaikum, Can somebody help with how to read this word and similar ones (only the two letters in the beginning). When I'm reading Quran I'm always so confused which letter i should read first and which one should have a kasra' and which one a dhamma (I hope you understand what I mean). It's a yaa and a kha right?? but which one should be said first and how do you see which letter the dhamma and the fatha is for
  12. Assalamu 'alaikum, I call myself Shia because I believe Imam 'Ali was (a.s) was chosen by the Prophet (saw) as his successor. There is of course more to being Shia but this is the fundamental thing that differs from the Sunni beliefs. We believe the 12 Imams were chosen by Allah swt and by not accepting them as leaders is going against Allahs will. The Prophet (saw) never said Abu Bakr was supposed to be his successor. Instead he said this (pointing to Imam 'Ali a.s); “By Him in Whose hand my life is, verily this man (‘Ali) and his Shi‘ah shall be the triumphant on the Day of Resurrection.” Another reason for me being Shia and for this being the right path is hadith al-Thaqalayn, where the Prophet (saw) clearly says to the Muslims to follow the Quran and his Ahlulbayt (NOT the Sahaba). The Ahlulbayt are people that I can proudly call my role-models, without and second thought and without doubting their actions for a second. For me, being Shia is not just believing something that others say is true, it's actually having proof of this path being the true one. "I am leaving behind two precious things (thaqalayn)among you. The first of the two is the Book of Allah. In it is guidance and light. So get hold of the Book of Allah and adhere to it." Then he urged and motivated (us) regarding the Book of Allah. Then he said, "And my Ahlul Bayt (family). I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt. I urge you to remember God regarding my Ahlul Bayt"
  13. You know there are many Western people, both men and women, that are converting to Islam and it's their own decision. And the myth you think is true about muslims having so many babies to force Europe to become muslim is not true.
  14. Okay so just because there are some values in Islam that go against Western ideals it is okay to label all muslims as extremist terrorists, assault women who are wearing hijab, ban the niqab and burkini and force women to take off their clothes and spread lies about muslims that make them a target for hate and hate crimes? And what exactly are these Western ideals you are talking about, is it women being objectified and seen as sexual objects? or colonizing and attacking countries, raping innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan and getting away with it??? And if you really think Islam is so bad then you're really misinformed what Islam acctually stands for.
