  1. I am very interested in this topic. If you find out more on this verse, this hadith, and this topic, please let me know. Thank you!
  2. Have they elaborated more on this? What tests? What does it mean to test the hearts? why not the Nafs? or the ruh? or the lungs? or the liver?
  3. Thank you! This has been my experience, too. Some authors/scholars seem to be either intellectual lazy or too entrenched within a specific position to be able to look for reconciliation.
  4. Salam, Here's a tradition: الخصال: في الحديث الأربعمائة قال أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام: خالطوا الناس بما يعرفون ودعوهم مما ينكرون، ولا تحملوهم على أنفسكم وعلينا، إن أمرنا صعب مستصعب لا يحتمله إلا ملك مقرب أو نبي مرسل أو عبد قد امتحن الله قلبه للإيمان [2/79] al-Khisal: In the ‘Four Hundred’ Narration: the commander of the faithful عليه السلام said: Interact with the people with that which they know and leave them be as to that which they do not know, and do not impose (empower) them upon yourselves and us, our affair is hard (in of itself) and deemed hard (by others) - no one can bear it except an angel brought-near or a prophet sent or a slave whose heart has been tried for faith by Allah. Questions: What else have the Imams (as) taught us about such slaves? What does the Imam (as) mean by trying the heart for faith? Have we been given examples? I know, it is generally assumed that this must mean "tried through hardships in life." But is this what our Imams (as) teach?
  5. Salam, Here's a tradition: علل الشرائع: أبي، عن سعد، عن البرقي، عن ابن بزيع، عن ابن بشير، عن أبي حصين، عن أبي بصير، عن أحدهما عليهما السلام قال: لا تكذبوا بحديث أتاكم به مرجى ء و لا قدري و لا خارجي نسبه إلينا، فإنكم لا تدرون لعله شيء من الحق فتكذبوا الله عز و جل فوق عرشه [3/80] Ilal al-Sharai: My father from Sa’d from al-Barqi from Ibn Bazi from Ibn Bashir from Abi Husayn from Abi Basir from one of them عليهما السلام who said: do not reject a narration which is brought to you by a Murji or a Qadari or a Khariji which he attributes to us, for you do not know - perhaps it is something of the truth and you will be rejecting Allah Mighty and Majestic above his throne. Question: Knowing this, why and how do some people choose to declare some sayings to be taqiyya? How would they know? Maybe it is something of the truth but we just don't know or are not willing to accept?

    Salam brother, Thank you for your generous offer.
  7. Fou'ad and Qalb

    @Salsabeel Salam, I checked, and it seems none of those hadiths have an acceptable chain.
  8. Fou'ad and Qalb

    Thank you everyone! Any teachings from the Ahlul Bayt (as) on this distinction?
  9. Ka'Ba

    I understand that. That is the conventional answer. However, is the source of this view Ahlul Bayt (as)? Or is it based on guesswork and speculations?
  10. Ka'Ba

    Is that the reason given by Ahlul Bayt (as)? Or is that your speculation?
  11. Salam, Have been taught by the Ahlul bayt (as) the difference between Fou'ad and Qalb? (They're both translated as "heart.") Thank you!
  12. Ka'Ba

    Salam, Do we know why Ka'Ba has that name? ANy authentic hadith(s) to inform us where the name came from? Thank you
  13. Do angels have genders?

    Could you translate the texts please?
  14. Salam, Are there rules or anything that I need to be aware of before attending a Wake? Thank you
  15. Salam, Questions: 1. Have female pronouns or other female indicators ever been used for angels? 2. Do we have authentic hadiths on Ankar and Munkar? Thank you
