  1. I have to concur with your conclusion. Most of the sources available to us today are not verifiable. According to various (and often conflicting) historical accounts of the activities of the Council of Nicaea, Certain manuscript were retained because they had values that corresponded with the beliefs of the sect in power; works provided by the gnostics (followers of Arius, who insisted the person of Jesus the Christ was not divine) were discarded, more than likely burned. My uncle (dayi) has tried to access works locally in Instanbul and has recommended the following publication available online, i just have not signed up for this site yet. http://www.worldlibrary.org/eBooks/WPLBN0001027053-Origin-and-History-of-the-Books-of-the-Bible-Both-the-Canonical-and-the-Apocryphal-Designed-to-by-Stowe-Calvin-Ellis.aspx?&Words=blble manuscripts
  2. 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)
  3. An easy internet source on the opinion of some Christians on how the Bible is a "inspired work revealed by God" https://bible.org/seriespage/5-bible-inspired-revelation-god
  4. Interesting. I have an English Torah That has been re-translated to the English by The Jewish society of America. I will need to read parts of this volume of the five books of Moses (Musa) to assess what was written about the account of Moses and get back to you. Why would it be important if the Christian Theology States whether or not if the Books of the Torah were revealed or inspired as the Torah is referring to Musa of the Levite tribe of Israel and was not written originally by any Christians? Paul in the Greek Scriptures of the Bible (New Testament) stated : Every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, (2Timothy 3:16) I have a duo translation of the "new testament" in the new english side by side with modern Standard Arabic if anyone is interested in me posting pics of the writings in this arabic. https://bible.org/seriespage/5-bible-inspired-revelation-god
  5. I was a former Sunni and did Taraweeh when I was Sunni. Since I have been married to a Shia for 25+ years I have finally declared myself to be of the Shia. Taraweeh is a prayer started by the early rulers of the Sunni Figh and is not a practice that I have ever encountered in any hussainiya or gathering of shia.
  6. Are you speaking of Ayatollah Muhammad Momen of Qoms Iran? Here is a link to some of his information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Momen
  7. As far as I understand, in the 3rd century Common Era the "Bible" as we know it today was compiled on the Order of Constantine in a convening of Christian Clerics called "The council of Nicaea. However there are many theories as to what actually happened at this council' "http://www.tertullian.org/rpearse/nicaea.html Whether the Quran states that the Bible is revealed or inspired is interesting. Thank you for bringing this subject forward for the rest of us simple ones to learn from.
  8. Salaams-Not being sarcastic, as soon as I find the reference for my statement, I will leave it for you
  9. Salaams: Ok what are the rules and how does a basic old person such as myself obtain a signature? is there a point in time where I will not be monitored and have every post scrutinized, Just curious is all, I dont see that information posted for new member to the forum. Thank you
  10. if you read that in an English translation I would say that that was erroneous. The verse that you are referring to does NOT state that in Arabic. Arabic takes a skilled scholar to accurately translate it to a passable English statement. I know its erroneous but am not skilled enought to translate that as well as I am NOT a scholar. Could you please share with us the name of the person who translated the version you are referring to?
  11. Wa alaikum Asalaam. I feel for you sister. But the person to ask is someone you really respect or is more knowledgeable in Islam. [Personal information was edited out.] My request to you sister is this: If you are in a country where Islam is not the majority religion, you may need to look into all possibilities. I know you stated that you have. When you say you love him, have you met his family, his friends? Take a female companion and your Turbah, go attend a noon Jummah meeting in the masjid he attends and see how you are treated by the other sunni women. Let them see you pray as a Shia, do not hide it. And I would advise you to consult with a Shayk or learned person of your comfort and see if this is a viable choice. First and foremost, Supplicate and inquire to Allah SuhanAllah Wa ta'ala. if you are receptive, He will answer. Do not marry in haste. May you be shown the path that is most correct for you dear sister. ma'Salaama.
  12. Asalaam alaikum. Rappers are using names in these verses more as a political tool. They also are using the names of some of the prophets. In their world use of these names are not limited. I simply may email some of these rappers and let them know their use of holy prophets and of Allah is not appreciated. I don't know about blasphemy but I know of some individuals from my Sunni past that would take exception to the use. Best to consult a marja?
  13. This is an excellent topic..If there could be higher than five stars JakakAllahu
  14. Wa alaikum Asalaam. I feel for you sister. But the person to ask is someone you really respect or is more knowledgeable in Islam. I was born Sunni hanafi, and was married to a like minded person in my first marriage. We had five children together and he died when I was 28 and had these five small children alone. I went to school for nursing in those two year I remained a widow. Life was difficult alone, and my uncle and brother were always looking for a suitable remarriage prospect for me. In the sunni world it never came. I was still young but most men did not want the burden of dealing with my five orphan children. I was expecting to have to hoof it and spend the rest of my life alone. Then came T.... My current husband who has Alzheimers and cannot remember some things. The Shia Jafari honorable man who took on a lonely 30 year old widow with 5 small orphan children and who treated them as he did his four daughters by his first marriage. For this we were blessed with one son together. He always encouraged me to have them (my five sunni children) attend programs in their fathers madhab, and to raise them with their fathers name and heritage. I was not always well received in the Sunni masjids after that point. I was even told to my face that I was kafir and that my marriage was invalid and I was committing zina because my husband was Shia. Funny how not ONE shia had ever treated me in that manner in all the years I would accompany him to the various Majlis and programs during the years I have been married to him. I made a decision to migrate to the Jafari madhab this past Muharram. It actually has been a 20 year journey. My request to you sister is this: If you are in a country where Islam is not the majority religion, you may need to look into all possibilities. I know you stated that you have. When you say you love him, have you met his family, his friends? Take a female companion and your Turbah, go attend a noon Jummah meeting in the masjid he attends and see how you are treated by the other sunni women. Let them see you pray as a Shia, do not hide it. And I would advise you to consult with a Shayk or learned person of your comfort and see if this is a viable choice.

  15. What I have found in this walk in life in my 59 years is that humans can and will change if the basic elements are in place. This lady at least loves her husband enough to "fake it" by making the effort to go to an Islamic center and reciting the Kalima, or testimony of faith and belief. Possible just this act may either make or break her Atheist beliefs. Only God, Allah, knows what is in her heart and knows the condition of her heart.She may find something meaningful in this visit. To a person in the right heart condition there is nothing quite as beautiful as an adhan calling the faithful to prayer in a musllim land. It calls to people, and the shia Adhans are for the most part breathtaking. Inshallah this lady will at least find God in any way, and reignite the love of her husband for his Rabb,
