  1. I see. So, we shouldn't praise the one who praises the Ahlul Bayt (as) in circumstances that would be more harmful to them rather than helpful. Right? Even if what he/she is saying is accurate?
  2. Doesn't the underlined part imply that we shouldn't praise most (if not all) of Shi'ite speakers and scholars, who, often and regularly, praise Ahlul Bayt (as) in public?
  3. Noble Traits of a Believer

    سلام, What exactly does الْإِقْتَارِ mean? Also, what is meant by expansion? Thank you
  4. Thank you. Do you know of any other example where "Ruh" is used to mean something other than "spirit"?
  5. Salam, Here's an authentic hadith: ْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ مِنْ صِحَّةِ يَقِينِ الْمَرْءِ الْمُسْلِمِ أَنْ لَا يُرْضِيَ النَّاسَ بِسَخَطِ اللَّهِ وَ لَا يَلُومَهُمْ عَلَى مَا لَمْ يُؤْتِهِ اللَّهُ فَإِنَّ الرِّزْقَ لَا يَسُوقُهُ حِرْصُ حَرِيصٍ وَ لَا يَرُدُّهُ كَرَاهِيَةُ كَارِهٍ وَ لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ فَرَّ مِنْ رِزْقِهِ كَمَا يَفِرُّ مِنَ الْمَوْتِ لَأَدْرَكَهُ رِزْقُهُ كَمَا يُدْرِكُهُ الْمَوْتُ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِعَدْلِهِ وَ قِسْطِهِ جَعَلَ الرَّوْحَ وَ الرَّاحَةَ فِي الْيَقِينِ وَ الرِّضَا وَ جَعَلَ الْهَمَّ وَ الْحَزَنَ فِي الشَّكِّ وَ السَّخَطِ What does it mean by "Ruh" to be made in conviction and contentment? Can the word الرَّوْحَ be trabnslated as something other than "spirit" in this context? Thank you!
  6. The Treasure Beneath the Wall

    Salam, Right. But are these phrases supposed to be Dua? In other words, is it permissible to utter لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا? Or are they more like reminders?
  7. Salam, Here's a good authentic hadith: صَفْوَانَ الْجَمَّالِ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ أَمَّا الْجِدارُ فَكانَ لِغُلامَيْنِ يَتِيمَيْنِ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ وَ كانَ تَحْتَهُ كَنْزٌ لَهُما (الكهف : 82 ) فَقَالَ أَمَا إِنَّهُ مَا كَانَ ذَهَباً وَ لَا فِضَّةً وَ إِنَّمَا كَانَ أَرْبَعَ كَلِمَاتٍ (1) لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنَا (2) مَنْ أَيْقَنَ بِالْمَوْتِ لَمْ يَضْحَكْ سِنُّهُ وَ (3) مَنْ أَيْقَنَ بِالْحِسَابِ لَمْ يَفْرَحْ قَلْبُهُ وَ (4) مَنْ أَيْقَنَ بِالْقَدَرِ لَمْ يَخْشَ إِلَّا اللَّهَ What grabbed my attention was the very first one. "There's no God except me." Why do you think "me" and not "Allah"?
  8. Salam, Here's a hadith, which is most likely acceptable/Sahih. I am, however, not sure about the status of Muhzim. َ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ مِهْزَمٍ وَ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ الْكَاهِلِيِّ وَ عَنْ أَبِي عَلِيٍّ الْأَشْعَرِيِّ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنِ الْعَبَّاسِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ رَبِيعِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ جَمِيعاً عَنْ مِهْزَمٍ الْأَسَدِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَا مِهْزَمُ شِيعَتُنَا مَنْ لَا يَعْدُو صَوْتُهُ سَمْعَهُ وَ لَا شَحْنَاؤُهُ يَدَيْهِ وَ لَا يَمْتَدِحُ بِنَا مُعْلِناً وَ لَا يُجَالِسُ لَنَا عَائِباً وَ لَا يُخَاصِمُ لَنَا قَالِياً وَ إِنْ لَقِيَ مُؤْمِناً أَكْرَمَهُ وَ إِنْ لَقِيَ جَاهِلًا هَجَرَهُ إِلَى أَنْ قَالَ شِيعَتُنَا مَنْ لَا يَهِرُّ هَرِيرَ الْكَلْبِ وَ لَا يَطْمَعُ طَمَعَ الْغُرَابِ وَ لَا يَسْأَلُ عَدُوَّنَا وَ إِنْ مَاتَ جُوعاً الْحَدِيثَ A Shiite does not praise one who advertises the Ahlul Bayt (as). What do you think that means?
  9. Salam, Here's an authentic hadith: عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ ع قَالَ: مِنْ أَخْلَاقِ الْمُؤْمِنِ الْإِنْفَاقُ عَلَى قَدْرِ الْإِقْتَارِ وَ التَّوَسُّعُ عَلَى قَدْرِ التَّوَسُّعِ وَ إِنْصَافُ النَّاسِ وَ ابْتِدَاؤُهُ إِيَّاهُمْ بِالسَّلَامِ عَلَيْهِمْ Could you please translate this? I read a translation, but didn't understand the initial part. Thank you!
  10. سلام, Based on acceptable traditions, do we know what the prophet (pbuh) used to do, when he retreated to the cave, before Islam? Do we know for how long he used to visit the cave and stay in it? Any information on this topic would be appreciated.
  11. It is initially enraging to read opinions that you strongly disagree with, but as you continue to do so, not only the rage subsides, but you'd begin to formulate counter-arguments or responses, subconsciously. Subsequently, when you encounter such opposing opinions outside of the online world, your initial subconscious reaction won't be rage or frustration. You'd be more rational and composed in your reaction. I'd also recommend reading academic books that put forward arguments or supported opinions against conventional views. Unfortunately, in my opinion, a lot of Shia don't bother, and as a result, unintentionally permit the perpetuation of myths and superstitions.
  12. Salam, If most of your friends and family members holds the same views as you, if on your social media most people think like you, if you look for answers only in avenues that you've always looked, if you search for Truth within a narrow environment, how do you know you're not stuck in an echo chamber?
  13. "Intoxication of death"

    Salam, The tafseer doesn't answer some important questions. 1) Is the "unconsciousness" before death the "intoxication" of death? So, technically, one is still alive but unconscious? 2) Is it at this point, alive but unconscious, that one will witness the Truth? 3) Why did God make a distinction between "death" and "intoxication of death"? This tafseer seems to equate this intoxication with death itself. 4) What about the so many documented near death experiences? 5) Can one reach this intoxication level, witness the Truth, and come back? (Many people with NDEs would say yes.)
  14. Salam, وَجاءَت سَكرَةُ المَوتِ بِالحَقِّ 50:19 What is intoxiation of death? "Intoxication of death" and "Death" aren't the same things. So, what is the former? Can one obtain the "intoxication of death" without dying shortly after? Why is the word "intoxication" or سَكرَ used here? Does it (whatever it is), come with truth or brings truth? Thank you!
