  1. We shouldn't become animals

    Wa aleykumsalaam, From `Abd Allāh bin Sinān said, I asked Abā `Abd Allāh, Ja`far bin Muhammad al-Sādiq (عليه السلام), I (narrator) said: “Are the angels better (afDal) or the children of Adam? So he (عليه السلام) said that Amīr al-Mu’minīn, `Alī bin Abī al-Tālib (عليه السلام) said: “Verily, Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) has composed in angels `aql (intellect) and no desire, and he composed in beasts desire and no intellect, and he composed in the children of Adam both (`aql and desire). So whoever (lets) `aql overcome his desires, he will be than the angels, and whoever (lets) his desires overcome his `aql, he is will be worse than the beasts” Source:Ilal al-Sharai by Sheikh Sadooq,Vol 1,Ch 6,Pg 4,H 1
  2. A problematic narration in Al-khisal

    Dear Goswami, Yes, hadeeth is Weak since Al-Hikam ibn Meskin al-Saqafy is Majhool (Unknown). here is the complete chain of that hadeeth. 22-31 حدثنا أبي، ومحمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي لله عنهما قالا: حدثنا سعد بن عبد لله قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن الحكم بن مسكين الثقفي، عن أبي الجارود وهشام أبي ساسان، وأبي طارق السراج، عن عامر بن واثلة
  3. How did Fatimah (sa) die?

    Assalaamualeykum, Problem with Muhammad bin Harun bin Musa is that we do not have clear Tawtheeq for him, we have difference of opinion among the scholars whether Muhammad bin Harun was the Shaykh of Najashi, as all the Mashayakh of Najashi are considered to be "Thiqah". Shaykh Najashi says in his Rijaal, pg 460 while talking about Harun bin Musa that (كنت أحضر في داره مع ابنه أبي جعفر ) "I got into the house along with his son Abu Jafar ", it is believe that he must have met Muhammad bin Harun, but issue is that scholars like al-Khoei, al-Muhsini do not consider him among the Mashayakh of Najashi. While I think quote from Najashi is good enough proof to believe him to have met Najashi. Allah knows best. Here are some positive views on Muhammad bin Harun bin Musa at-Tal'akbari from some scholars: Najashi praised him by saying "Rahmathallah" in his Rijaal, Pg 79. (قال أبو الحسين محمد بن هارون بن موسى رحمه الله) Allamah Majlisi says in Bihar al-Anwaar Vol 1, Pg 33 that Muhammad ibn Harun is the 'honourable sheikh', and 'one of the great narrators'. (للشيخ الجليل أبي الحسين محمّد بن هارون التلعكبريّ وهو من أكابر المحدثين.) Shaykh Jawad Tabrizi (student of al-Khoei) consider narration Mu'tabar with Muhammad bin Harun in chain in his book Ṣirāṭ al-Najāh, Vol 3, Pg 441. Shaykh Mohammad Sadiq Behr ul Uloom consider him to be the Shyakh of Najashi in his book Al Fawaid ur Rijaliyya, Vol 4, Pg 121. Sheikh Jafar Subhani also consider him to be the Shyakh of Najashi in Kuliyat fi Ilm Ur Rijal, Pg 281. Wa aleykumsalaam
  4. Pure Stream on youtube

    Assalaamualeykum, Google is very strict on copyrighted videos, since you must have not submitted permission to YouTube prior to uploading the videos, that is why your channel got banned. I had face similar issue while I was making live channels App, all you have to do is take permission from Pure Stream via Email, save email in PDF format and submit it to YouTube, Inshallah you wont face any issue after that. Wa aleykumsalaam
  5. Wa aleykumsalaam, Yes, Black clothes and black shoes are Makhruh (Disliked), but black turban and black cloak is allowed according to our narrations.
  6. Jahiliyya time Question

    Assalaamualeykum, This is what Imam says: 1 - علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن محبوب وغيره، عن العلاء بن رزين عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال: من كان مؤمنا فعمل خيرا في إيمانه ثم أصابته فتنه فكفر ثم تاب بعد كفره كتب له وحسب بكل شئ كان عمله في إيمانه ولا يبطله الكفر إذا تاب بعد كفره. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn Mahbub and others from al-‘Ala’ ibn Razin from Muhammad ibn Muslim from abu Ja’far(as), who has said the following: “One who has been a believer and had performed good deeds then suffers a misfortune and turns to disbelief, then after disbelief repents, all of the good deeds that he had performed as a believer will be written down for him. Disbelief does not invalidate them if he repents after his disbelief.” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 2, Pg 461, H 1(2). Grading: Allamah Majlisi said hadeeth is "Hasan Kal-Saheeh" (Good like Authentic) in his Mirat ul Uqool, Vol 11, Pg 385. Shaykh Bahbudi grades this hadeeth as "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Saheeh al-Kafi, Vol 1, Pg 133.
  7. Jahiliyya time Question

    Wa aleykumsalaam, Here is what our Aimmah has to say on this regard. 1 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن أبي عبيدة، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال: إن ناسا أتوا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) بعد ما أسلموا فقالوا: يا رسول الله أيؤخذ الرجل منا بما كان عمل في الجاهلية بعد إسلامه؟ فقال لهم رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): من حسن إسلامه وصح يقين إيمانه لم يأخذه الله تبارك وتعالى بما عمل في الجاهلية ومن سخف إسلامه ولم يصح يقين إيمانه أخذه الله تبارك وتعالى بالأول والآخر. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from Jamil ibn Salih from abu ‘Ubaydah from abu Ja’far(as), who has said the following: “Certain people came to the Messenger of Allah after accepting Islam and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, will any of us, after accepting Islam, be held responsible for what he had done in the time of ignorance?’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Whoever is good in his Islam and corrects the certainty of his belief is not held responsible for his acts in the time of ignorance in the judgment of Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High. Whoever’s Islam is nonsense and has not corrected the certainty of his belief will be held responsible in the judgment of Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High, for his past and later deeds.’” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 2, Pg 461, H 1. Al-Mahaasin by Shaykh al-Barqi, Vol 1, Pg 250, H 264. Grading: Allamah Majlisi said hadeeth is "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Mirat ul Uqool, Vol 11, Pg 383. Shaykh Bahbudi also grades this hadeeth as "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Saheeh al-Kafi, Vol 1, Pg 132. 2 - علي بن إبر هيم، عن أبيه، عن القاسم بن محمد الجوهري، عن المنقري، عن فضيل بن عياض قال: سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام)، عن الرجل يحسن في الاسلام أيؤاخذ بما عمل في الجاهلية؟ فقال: قال النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله): من أحسن في الاسلام لم يؤاخذ بما عمل في الجاهلية ومن أساء في الاسلام اخذ بالأول والآخر. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Qasim ibn Muhammad al- Jawhari from al-Minqari from Fudayl ibn al-‘Iyad who has said the following: “Once I asked abu ‘Abd Allah(as), ‘Will a man who is good in Islam be held responsible for his deeds in the time of ignorance?’ The Imam said, ‘The Holy Prophet has said, “Whoever is good in Islam will not be held responsible for his deeds in the times of ignorance and anyone who is not good in Islam will be held responsible for his acts of the past and those thereafter.’” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 2, Pg 461, H 2. Wa aleykumsalaam

  11. When did Adam (as) appered on earth ?

    Assalaamualeykum, We have this hadeeth which states the date. From Isa Bin Hamza who said: ‘A man said to Abu Abdullah(as), ‘May I be sacrificed for you! The people are claiming that the world, its age it of seven thousand years!’ So he(as) said: ‘It is not as they are saying. Allah Created for it fifty thousand years, so Left it empty of its inhabitants for ten thousand years. Then Allah Began its beginning, so He Created in it creatures who were neither from the Jinn, nor from the Angels, nor from the human beings, and Measured out for them ten thousand years. So when they came near to the end of their term, they created mischief therein, so Allah Destroyed them with a damaging Destruction. Then He left it empty from its inhabitants for ten thousand years. Then He Created in it, the Jinn, and Measured out for them ten thousand years. So when the end of their term came near, they were mischievous therein, and shed the blood. And these are the Words of Allah (the Angels said) [2:30] Are You going to Make in it one as shall make mischief therein and shed the blood, just as the Clan of Jaan had shed?’ So Allah Destroyed them. Then Allah Began the Creation of Adam(as), and Measured out for him, ten thousand years. And, from that, seven thousand two hundred years have passed from that, and you all are in the end of the era’.

  12. Wa aleykumsalaam, We do have many authentic hadeeth which proves that Imam Mahdi was born, for example one below. 2 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن إسحاق، عن أبي هاشم الجعفري قال: قلت لابي محمد (عليه السلام): جلالتك تمنعني من مسألتك، فتأذن لي أن أسألك؟ فقال: سل، قلت: يا سيدي هل لك ولد؟ فقال: نعم، فقلت: فإن بك حدث فأين أسأل عنه؟ فقال: بالمدينة. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Ishaq from abu Hashim al-Ja‘fari who has said the following. "I said to abu Muhammad (a.s.), ‘Your grace causes shyness to me to ask you questions. May I ask you a question?" He said, "Yes, you may ask." I said, "My master, do you have a son?" He said, "Yes, I do have a son." I then said, "If anything will happen to you, where would I ask him (about my religion)?" He replied, "Ask him in Madina." Source: Al-Kafi by Kulayni, Vol 1, Pg 328, H 2. Allamah Majlisi has said hadeeth is "Saheeh" in Mirat ul Uqool Vol 4, Pg 2. And Muhammad Baqir Bahbudi also says hadeeth is “Saheeh” (Authentic) in his Ṣaḥīḥ al-Kafi, Vol 1, Pg 38. Even Sunni Scholars admit that there was son of Imam Hasan Askari (as) named Muhammad which was born in year 255 H. Al-Dhahabi in his Tarikh Al-Islam Vol. 19, p. 113 states: وأما ابنه محمد بن الحسن الذي يدعوه الرافضة القائم الخلف الحجة، فولد سنة ثمان وخمسين، وقيل سنة ست وخمسين "As for his (Hassan al-Askari) son Muhammad ibn al-Hasan, who the Rawafidh call the Qaim al-Khalaf al-Hujja, he was born in the year 258. Some say 255" Source: Tarikh Al-Islam Vol. 19, p. 113 Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, in his Lisan al-Meezan (Vol. 2, p. 119,no 493) in the section on Ja'far al-Kadhdhab): ... أخو الحسن الذي يقال له العسكري، وهو الحادي عشر من الأئمة الإمامية ووالد محمد صاحب السرداب... He (Ja'far al-Kadhdhab) is the brother of Hasan, called al-Askari, the eleventh Imam of the Imamiyyah and father of Muhammad ... Source: Lisan al-Meezan Vol. 2, p. 119,no 493. You can get all the authentic hadeeth regarding Imam al-Qaim (as) from the book which is complied by brother Qaim from this link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1hosdSD29VXMlF0alZyWmZGQnM Wa aleykumsalaam
  13. Assalaamualeykum, I was going through the quotes of all the great leaders who had praise the goal and aim of Imam Hussain (as), then I stumble upon the quote of Mahatma (Great Soul) Gandhi, this made me eager to dig more about the authenticity of his quote. I was searching for his saying on Imam Hussain from any book or letter source, unfortunately all that was available online was mere a quote not a reference was mentioned, this made me more curious to find out whether all his saying are legit or are they all forged. Then I happened to find the website www.gandhiheritageportal.org, which have authentic letters of Mahatma Gandhi in a Book form, which is named as 'The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi' and it is in 100 Volumes. It is on their website which says, "A one-time authentic documentation of Gandhiji’s available writings was carried out meticulously, and conscientiously under the CWMG project of the Government of India in 1956." And after going through this book, I have collected some authentic sayings of Mahatma Gandhi regarding Imam Hussain (as). And I was amazed how well this Hindu leader adopts his life by following the footsteps of Imam Hussain (as). Saying #1: Imam Hasan and Hussein refused to acknowledge the authority of Yazid, for it would have been wrong to do so. For this reason, that is, in order to preserve their honour, they became martyrs. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 7, Letter #89, Pg 122-123. Scan Page: Pg 122: http://oi63.tinypic.com/2lldci8.jpg Pg 123: http://oi64.tinypic.com/9kr18z.jpg Saying #2: Mr. Shahji Saheb, after referring to what Hazrat Imam Hussein had suffered, said that what had happened to Ram Sundar Pundit might also happen to a Muslim priest. Unable to bear this thought, he had forced himself to be prepared to follow the Pundit to gaol. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 7, Pg 418. Scan Page: Pg 418: http://oi65.tinypic.com/2mw8qxw.jpg Saying #3: Imam Hassan and Hussain were merely two boys. They felt that an injustice had been done to them. When called upon to surrender, they refused. They knew at the time that this would mean death for them. If, however, they were to submit to injustice, they woud disgrace their manhood and betray their religion. In these circumstances, they yielded to the embrace of death. The heads of these fine young men rolled on the battlefield. In my view, Islam did not attain its greatness by the power of the sword but entirely through the self-immolation of its fakirs (saints). Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 13, Letter #395, Pg 518. Scan Page: Pg 518: http://oi65.tinypic.com/2mfllol.jpg Saying #4: Muslim students have before them the example of Imam Hasan and Husain. Islam has not been kept alive by the sword, but by the many great fakirs (saints) with a high sense of honour whom it has produced. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 19, Letter #36, Pg 48-49. Scan Page: Pg 48: http://oi67.tinypic.com/11tolz4.jpg Pg 49: http://oi63.tinypic.com/2hrl5zo.jpg Saying #5: The marks of a Kshatriya spirit are not cruelty and hard-heartedness; it consists, rather, in forbearance, readiness to forgive, compassion, nobility, apalayanam (Not running away from battle in fear) and the strength to stand unshaken and fearless even under a shower of bullets. The true Kshatriya does not kill but receives blows on himself. Imam Hussen and Hassan were Kshatriyas. Their oppressor was a tyrant. Source: The Collected Works Of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol 20, Letter #60, Pg 52. Scan Page: Pg 52: http://oi64.tinypic.com/2qiprmb.jpg Note: Kshatriya (from Sanskrit kśatra, "rule, authority") is one of the four varna (social orders) of the Hindu society. The Sanskrit term kśatriya is used in the context of Vedic society wherein members organised themselves into four classes: kshatriya, brahmin, vaishya and shudra. Traditionally, the kshatriya constituted the ruling and military elite. Their role was to protect society by fighting in wartime and governing in peacetime. Saying #6: In this connection, it would be well to ponder over the lives and examples of Harishchandra, Prahlad, Ramachandra, Imam Hasan and Imam Husain, the Christian saints, etc. How beautitful it would be if all of us, young and old, men and women, meditated, till next week, on these thoughts at all hours of the day, whetther working, eating, drinking or playing, and were rewarded with innocent sleep?

  14. Salman farsi

    Assalaamualeykum, This is what our Imam al-Baqir(as) says: حمده بن نصير، قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى، عن حنان بن سدير، عن أبيه، عن أبي جعفر (ع) قال: جلس عدة من أصحاب رسول الله (ص) ينتسبون و فيهم سلمان الفارسي، و أن عمر سأله عن نسبه و أصله فقال أنا سلمان بن عبد الله كنت ضالا فهداني الله بمحمد و كنت عائلا فأغناني الله بمحمد و كنت مملوكا فأعتقني الله بمحمد فهذا حسبي و نسبي ثم خرج رسول الله (ص) فحدثه سلمان و شكا إليه ما لقي من القوم و ما قال لهم، فقال النبي (ص) يا معشر قريش في حسب الرجل دينه، و مروته خلقه، و أصله عقله، قال الله تعالى: إنا خلقناكم من ذكر و أنثى و جعلناكم شعوبا و قبائل لتعارفوا في أكرمكم عند الله أتقاكم. يا سلمان ليت، I هيف يو نو Hamdawayh bin Nusayr who said: Muhammad bin Isa from Hannan bin Sadiyr narrated to me from his father from Abi Ja’far (s) who said: A number of the companions of the messenger of Allah (pbuh) were seated recalling their ancestry, and among them was Salman the Persian, so Umar asked him about his ancestry and his pedigree, so he said: I am Salman the son of the slave of Allah, I was misguided, but then Allah guided me through Muhammad, and I was poor but then Allah made me self-sufficient through Muhammad, and I was a slave but then Allah set me free through Muhammad, so this is my lineage and this is my pedigree. Then the messenger of Allah came out and Salman narrated to him what had happened and complained to him regarding what he encountered from the people and what he had replied to them, so the Prophet said: O assembly of the Quraysh! Verily the pedigree of a person is his religion, and his manliness is his good-habits, and his origin is his intelligence, Allah has said: ‘we have created you from a male and a female, and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know each other, verily the most honorable of you in the estimation of Allah is the most god-conscious of you’ (49:13), O Salman! there is no one from among these who has a merit over you except by the Taqwa of Allah, and if Taqwa is for you over them, then you are better. - All narrators are trustworthy, except Sadiyr, he is praised by Shaykh al-Kashi and Allamah Majlisi, Hadeeth is Mu'tabar. http://www.iqraonline.net/lesson-10-november-14th-rijal-al-kashi/
