    Fadak Argument Need Refutation

    was Fadak inheritance or a gift?

    New Subreddit Dedicated to Refuting Sunni lies

    Brother, honestly very few people are suited to apologetics, and this should be left to the scholars and those who have studied extensively. This could do more harm than good. Just from a quick look: - the first post doesn't even address the argument the title would suggest it's refuting, rather it brings up an incident relevant to the overall discussion regarding Abu Bakr and Umar, but has nothing to do with the argument it refers to. Shoddy methods of argumentation like this will get picked apart and used as an example by those who wish to suggest the Shia have no leg to stand on. It's not a good look for us at all. - the second post is by a user called xxx_Sunni_Slayer_313 (seriously? come on, how old is this person?)

    Did Sheikh Saduq Distort a Narration?

    http://www.aqaed.com/book/135/twhid1-22.html#twh60 The hadith came to Al-Sheikh Al-Sadooq through a slightly longer chain than to Al-Kulayni, and includes more narrators alongside Ibrahim ibn Hashim. I don't see what compels you to jump to this accusation, the same hadith can differ slightly in wording you know...

    Virtual Currencies

    Cryptocurrencies are already well known, albeit still new and unpredictable. The advice I've received from people who have studied finance/economics is that cryptocurrencies, despite having made a number of people an incredible return on investment, are still speculative in nature, and to only put in money that you can afford to lose. So putting in your savings is a big risk, especially if you're not well off and your savings account is your safety net. Since futures on bitcoin were introduced last month, bitcoin's value has mostly fluctuated between 12-16,000 USD, it keeps on going up and down. As for the catch, there are quite a few, especially with bitcoin: transaction costs which are now huge, making small purchases pointless unless through a service that doesn't charge for exchanges between individuals on their own platform. Cryptocurrency exchanges crashing at vital moments. Payment limitations: depending on your nationality, some exchanges like blockchain.info will only pay into an international bank account which can incur further fees, so it's best to buy from individuals on exchange boards. But they all set their buy/sell prices lower/higher than market value. I learnt this stuff the hard way. Thankfully I only put a small amount into bitcoin, and if it's value rises, I should make a small profit.
  5. The first part of a multiple part series looking into the incident of the door, made over the past few weeks by a Shi'i brother in Morocco. In this first video, he explores the narration of Umar's threat in the musannaf of Ibn Abi Shayba. He refutes Uthman Al-Khamees' attempt to weaken the narration, and demonstrates how others who have reported the same narration have omitted Umar's words in different ways such as cutting it short and saying there is "a story", or reporting that Umar said "so and so" etc.

    Kitab Sulaym bin Qays Al-Hilali

    What evidence do we have for this? Are there a range of manuscripts which differ greatly?

    what is shia view on Abu Hurrayrah.

    Frankly, this is getting really boring, and by that I mean this wave of posters like yourself who spend much of their time on this forum to ask rhetorical questions which are only intended to serve as shubuhaat against shiism. It's the same old recycled nonsense too. You have your religion, we have ours, do your own thing, live your own lives.

    Where is khilafa in the Qur'an? According to your school, it is wajib to give bay'ah to a caliph in every age. He who rejects the khilafa of Abu Bakr, Umar etc is upon falsehood. It's a very similar concept yet you can't justify it at face value from the verses of the Qur'an. You can't demand a standard of evidence that you don't abide by, and that your scholars even condemn as false (eg Al-Albani).
  10. No, you're not. Six years ago, I used to think it was just me and a minority of my friends, but it has turned out there are many brothers who are looking for wives with a standard of covering more conservative and old-school. Just ignore the silly comments.
  11. (1) That's neither what I said nor what I meant, although I do believe this. (2) Rasoolallah (s) said this. I'm sure you're aware of hadith al-thaqalayn, it's a mu'tabar hadith in your books too. (3) I literally just answered this with "No, it does not", and then gave an explanation as to why your understanding of the variant readings is incorrect, which you completely ignored. The whole point is to show the very foundation by which you argued that the Qur'an demonstrates sunnism as true, and shiism is false, as per your original post, crumbles under basic scrutiny. I believe your points have been deconstructed for anybody who they would otherwise confuse and misguide, and so I have no further interest in discussing this with you.
  12. I made a mistake here, but the point and everything else still stands.
  13. The long list of differences I just posted the link to between Shu'bah and Hafs demonstrates this to be untrue. There are differences in meaning in several cases. If you look at it objectively, they shouldn't even differ on a single letter if they both took from the same reciter. Of course, these differences are simply down to human error, but this goes back to the point of the true qira'ah needing an infallible imam in every age to preserve it. Without one, these human errors can not be rectified and the proper reading is irreversibly lost.
  14. I'm not going to keep repeating myself and going in circles. This is now twice you've ignored my point on the importance of taking Islam as a whole. No, it does not. I think you're confused. You keep saying that the variant readings are all undoubtedly legitimate modes of revelation by Allah, despite several holes in this argument which I have already pointed out but will do so one last time, after this I won't bother as it would be clear everything is going in one eye and coming out of the other. Even if you take the Sunni position that the Qur'an was revealed in seven modes, these readings are not those seven. There are more than seven readings. Some of these readings are variations in transmission from the same reciter. For example (only one of many!): http://live.islamweb.net/quran_list/shuaba/s2.pdf, 2:222, Hafs has it as تطهرن, Shu'bah has it as يطهرن, they didn't take from different tabi'een or sahaba, they both transmitted from Aasim! Are you going to claim their differences in transmission are both revelation from Allah? Nonsense! Even if you posit that these differences in wording do not change the meaning (and this is incorrect anyway, but for argument's sake), to be consistent you would have to conclude that there is no problem with omitting or changing words in the Qur'an as long as the meaning stays the same, and that reciting any modification of an ayah in your salat is acceptable as long as the meaning stays roughly the same. Just look at this long list of differences between Hafs and Shu'bah http://www.mobile4arab.com/vb/showthread.php?t=86338. Changes in pronunciation. Changes in wording. Omissions, or arguably additions of words. You're telling me that all these differences, despite them taking from the same reciter, are divinely inspired? If you say yes, then surely you are deaf, dumb, and blind to the truth. Guidance from Allah is not with the Qur'an alone, it is with the Qur'an and the Ahlulbayt together, the two weighty things. The Qur'an is with the Ahlulbayt, and the Ahlulbayt is with the Qur'an.
