  1. Why would I need to prove that the living scholar who allows taqlid of dead scholars (in this case Sh. Janati or Ayatollah Haydari) is the most knowledgeable marja' of the current time? That is not mentioned in Sayed Fadlallah rulling. All he says is I have to find someone who meets all the required conditions for emulation and deems it permissible to emulate a religious authority after his death. Thank You Q: Is it permissible for he who has never emulated the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra) before his death to start to emulate him after his death? A: It is permissible for he who has not emulated His Eminence, Sayyed Fadlullah (ra), before his death to start to emulate him after his death by going back to the opinion of the living religious authority who meets all the required conditions [for emulation] and deems it permissible to start to emulate a religious authority after his death; and such a religious authority does exist. http://english.bayynat.org.lb/FAQ/FAQ_EmulationAfterDeath.htm
  2. Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) doesn't say that the marja has to be the living most qualified marja? He says that all I need is a fatwa from a marja stating that he allows the following of a deceased marja. Even though most don't allow Taqlid to a deceased marja their are a few who allow it. Thank You Is there a way i could do taqleed on sayyed fadhlullah even though he passed away? It is permissible to emulate the late marja’ Fadlallah after his death by going back to a fatwa of a living marja’ that deems amulating a dead marja’ right from the start including H. E. Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jinati http://english.bayynat.org/readers_mail/ Salam.Can a beginer start by emulating late Ayatollah Fadhalullah(qs), if not، is their any living marja'i who allow his emulators to used late Fadhalullah(q.s) fatwa? A1: This is permissible by referring to the Fatwa of a living religious authority who deems starting emulation by emulating a dead religious authority permissible, such as Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati. http://english.bayynat.org.lb/readers_mail/readers16.htm Q: Is it permissible for he who has never emulated the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra) before his death to start to emulate him after his death?

  3. The way I see Taqlid is that a highly respected marja like Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) allows following a deceased marja, and he is the marja I'm looking to follow. So even though this particular ruling goes against what the majority of the Shia scholars believe Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) is the marja who's opinion I look for in all matters in my life, and he believes that following a deceased scholar is permissible. Do you think that is reason enough to follow his advice and listen to the other scholars who also allow Taqlid to a deceased scholar? Thank You
  4. Do I have to follow them or is it enough that I refer to one of their rulings? The ruling states that all I need to do is go back to the opinion of the living religious authority. A: It is permissible for he who has not emulated His Eminence, Sayyed Fadlullah (ra), before his death to start to emulate him after his death by going back to the opinion of the living religious authority who meets all the required conditions [for emulation] and deems it permissible to start to emulate a religious authority after his death; and such a religious authority does exist. Thank You
  5. This seems like quite a difficult task, and one that could take years of my life to figure out. The way they make it sound on bayynat site is that it's as easy as 1 2 3. Does Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati have the same ruling of allowing taqlid of a deceased marja except with the pre conditions of having Sayyid Fadlallal's be 'the most knowledgeable in the history of Shia Islam? That would make this a lot easier for me. Thank You Name: hassan Country: ... Date: 28/09/2013 Is there a way i could do taqleed on sayyed fadhlullah even though he passed away?

  6. Whey protein powder, please help

    Salam, I know that this is not what your asking about, but I could not help but to reply since I thought you should be warned against ingesting known poisons. When I was younger I had this idea that taking Whey and other protein powders would make me big and strong. I went to a vitamin store to purchase the same protein powder that you mentioned Whey Protein sold by Optimum Nutrition, and I thank God that my father stopped me from making one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Years later I came to find out that Protein Powder and supplements in general are not what they appear to be and that the majority are full of harmful ingredients. Below are some youtube videos that might convince you otherwise. I suggest you research protein powders and supplements yourself to open your eyes to the negative effects they can have on the human body. Also when purchasing anything make sure to research some of the unfamiliar ingredients, and you'll be surprised what a simple google result will turn up. Based on what i have read related to the widespread contamination of supplements I would consider them dangerous, and would caution you to stay as far away from them as possible. I believe you can benefit more from eating foods that contain protein such as USDA Organic Peanut butter, USDA Organic Chia Seeds and Broccoli to name a few. Always remember to eat as organic as possible and avoid wheat and processed white sugar. You'll be amazed at how much healthier you will feel when you cut all processed foods. Whether they are organic or nonorganic processed foods will keep you fat for the rest of your life. Anyway if you still decide to take a protein supplement I would look into Nutiva's hemp protein since it seems like a healthier option. Remember just because something is popular doesn't make it right. After watching the below videos I'd like to hear if you are still interested in ingesting the poison. I mean Protein. Thank You After further research I have found that it's imperative to make sure that if you take protein powder that it's certified organic because if it's not certified organic it's not worth putting into your body. Remember just because it's organic doesn't mean it's safe to consume. Google the product itself and the ingredients listed to make sure of it's safety, and watch as many reviews of the product as possible to make sure that others have not found any faults with the product. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8CQNrzpgf0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Orop-VM9s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwpVDXZqq24 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O-ehIkwGME https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7j6K0S8pb4
  7. Well lets see. hmmmm Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) says you can close your eyes in prayer and Sayyed Sistani says it is not permissible. And since I love to close my eyes in prayer I'd have to agree with Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra), and take him on as my marja LOL. +1000 points Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) All jokes aside the only reason I started this topic was because someone pointed out to me that it was not allowed to follow a deceased marja. I have been happy with all the knowledge I have learned from Bayynat Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) website, and based on his knowledge I consider him a worthy marja. That's not to say any of the other marja's are lacking in knowledge and expertise. Whenever I have a question I also visit Sistani.org and read up on sistani's rulings, and have emailed his office several times asking them questions, but I find no reason to change my marja since I have found no issues with Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra), and his fatwas have made sense to me. Thank You
  8. This is good enough for me. Thanks for the ruling. So this ruling alone is good enough to put this matter to rest, and allow me to follow Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) since all I needed was an okay from a marja. I'm curious if I decided to keep Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) anyway without adhering to any rulling would I have committed a sin in some way? Thank You
  9. Did you get this rulling from Sayed al-khamenai? Would the above rulling apply to me even though I don't follow Sayed al-khamenai or any of the other marja's who support the rulling? My marja or the marja I'm trying to follow says that I can follow him if I find an opinion of a marja who is worthy of being followed that allows emulation of a marja after his death. Are Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati or Sayyid Kamal Al-Haidary worthy of being followed? And do you know where I can find the ruling that states that I can follow a deceased marja? Thank You BTW I know it is not appropriate to insult or talk bad about marjas, and I just want a little background info on Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati or Sayyid Kamal Al-Haidary beliefs to make sure that I can adhere to their rulling on following a deceased marja. http://english.bayynat.org.lb/FAQ/FAQ_EmulationAfterDeath.htm Q: Is it permissible for he who has never emulated the late Sayyed Fadlullah (ra) before his death to start to emulate him after his death? A: It is permissible for he who has not emulated His Eminence, Sayyed Fadlullah (ra), before his death to start to emulate him after his death by going back to the opinion of the living religious authority who meets all the required conditions [for emulation] and deems it permissible to start to emulate a religious authority after his death; and such a religious authority does exist.
  10. My mom tells me I was born following him since both she and my father were following him. Is that sufficient enough to keep him as my marja? Thank You
  11. If my parents were following Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) on my behalf would it be okay to keep him as my marja?
  12. I read that most marja's don't allow taqleed of a deceased marja, but there are a few exceptions such as Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati or Sayyid Kamal Al-Haidary. I was wondering if my parents were following Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) on my behalf would it be okay to keep him as my marja? Below is a question posed by a fellow muslim brother On Ayatollah Fadlallah’s English website, it said that it is permissible to begin following Sayyid Fadlallah (a deceased Marja’) by referring to the fatwa (ruling) of a living Marja’ who deems it permissible to do so, such as Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Jannati or Sayyid Kamal Al-Haidary. Is there anything wrong with this, especially since such scholars have endorsed it? Thank You
  13. Both my parents have been following Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) since way back. In 2010 Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) passed away. I was not aware what a marja was back in 2010, and when I did learn of their existence I took on Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (ra) as my marja without a second thought since he was the marja of my parents. Since following a marja who has passed on is not allowed do I need to change my marja? Thank You

  15. Tricky Rules

    This is the first time I have heard that you are not allowed to do wudu before wajib salah with the intention to pray that wajib salah. I always do wudu 5-10 minutes before salah. What does the wudu with the Niyat to be Tayyeb mean? Can you provide a ruling on why you are not allowed to do wudu with the intention to pray wajib salah before Azan? Thank You
