  1. "Rape" in Islam

    I believe it's a death sentence
  2. This is the problem right here. Focus on doing other beneficial things. Like any other powerful addiction, this just gives you a high that you don't get in your other activities. I don't mean to sound rude, but your life is just too dull. If you focus on building on positive, healthier habits and finding joy in other things, it will be easier to defeat this. You are only 14 years old with a life full of good deeds, and healthy relationships to develop inshaAllah.
  3. Yes I believe so. Since the ruling for seeking the father's permission is based on Ihtiyat (precaution), you can refer to a marja' with a more absolute ruling, i.e. Sayed al Hakeem, Sayed Sadiq Rohani
  4. Here is a hadith narrated from Imam Ali (as) found in Tafsir al Qummi that discusses this. "Allah wanted to create a creature by His hand, and that was after the jinn and the Nasnaas (a half-human half-beast species) remained in the Earth for seven thousand years. And it was His will to create Adam beyond the confines of the heavens. Allah said to the angels, 'Look at the inhabitants of the Earth, My creatures, the jinn and the Nasnaas.' So when they saw what they were doing in acts of disobedience, the shedding of blood, and unjustly spreading corruption in the Earth, that became significant to the angels. They became angry at the inhabitants of the Earth, and they could not control their anger. They said, 'Our Lord, You are the Almighty, the Able, the Powerful, the Supreme, the One of Great Consequence. These are your weak, servile creatures. They tumble within Your grasp, they live within Your sustenance, they enjoy Your pardon, and they disobey You with these great sins that You do not make them regretful for, nor do you get angry, nor do You seek vengeance for Yourself when You hear from them or when You see. But this has become significant to us.' So when He heard that from the angels, He said, 'Surely, I will establish a vicegerent upon the Earth (2:30) who will be My Proof in the Earth upon My creation.’ The angels said, ‘May You be glorified.’ ‘Will You place upon it one who will cause corruption therein (2:30) just as the children of the jinn caused corruption, and shed blood just as the jinn shed, and be envious and disobedient? Appoint that vicegerent from us, for we are not envious, nor are we disobedient, nor do we shed blood.’ ‘And we will declare Your praise and sanctify You’ (2:30) Allah said, ‘I know what you know not’ (2:30). ‘I want to create a creation with My two hands, and make from his progeny prophets, messengers, and righteous servants who are guided Imams, and I will make them vicegerents upon My creation in My Earth. They will prohibit them from disobeying Me, and warn them of My punishment, and guide them to My obedience, and put them upon the path of My cause, and be My Proof upon them. I will remove the Nasnaas from My Earth and purify it from them, and I will move the evil, disobedient jinn away from My goodly, preferred creatures and settle them in the space beyond the Earth so that they do not tyrannize this race of My creatures. I will put a barrier between the jinn and My creatures so that this race of My creatures will not see the jinn, nor sit with them, nor mix with them.’" فحدثني أبي عن الحسن بن محبوب عن عمرو بن (أبى ط) مقدام عن ثابت الحذاء عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي عن أبي جعفر محمد بن علي بن الحسين عن أبيه عن آبائه عليهم السلام عن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام قال إن الله تبارك وتعالى أراد ان يخلق خلقا بيده وذلك بعد ما مضى من الجن والنسناس في الأرض سبعة آلاف سنة وكان من شأنه خلق آدم كشط(2) عن اطباق السماوات قال للملائكة انظروا إلى أهل الأرض من خلقي من الجن والنسناس فلما رأوا ما يعملون فيها من المعاصي وسفك الدماء والفساد في الأرض بغير الحق عظم ذلك عليهم وغضبوا وتأسنوا على أهل الأرض ولم يملكوا غضبهم قالوا ربنا إنك أنت العزيز القادر الجبار القاهر العظيم الشأن وهذا خلقك الضعيف الذليل يتقلبون في قبضتك ويعيشون برزقك ويتمتعون بعافيتك وهم يعصونك بمثل هذه الذنوب العظام لا تأسف عليهم ولا تغضب ولا تنتقم لنفسك لما تسمع منهم وترى وقد عظم ذلك علينا وأكبرناه فيك قال فلما سمع ذلك من الملائكة قال "إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً" يكون حجة لي في الأرض على خلقي فقالت الملائكة سبحانك "أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا" كما أفسد بنو الجان ويسفكون الدماء كما سفك بنو الجان ويتحاسدون ويتباغضون فاجعل ذلك الخليفة منا فانا لا نتحاسد ولا نتباغض ولا نسفك الدماء ونسبح بحمدك ونقدس لك قال عز وجل "إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ" اني أريد ان أخلق خلقا بيدي واجعل من ذريته أنبياء ومرسلين وعبادا صالحين أئمة مهتدين واجعلهم خلفاء على خلقي في أرضي ينهونهم عن معصيتي وينذرونهم من عذابي ويهدونهم إلى طاعتي ويسلكون بهم طريق سبيلي وأجعلهم لي حجة عليهم وأبيد النساس من ارضي وأطهرها منهم وانقل مردة الجن العصاة من بريتي وخلقي وخيرتي واسكنهم في الهواء في أقطار الأرض فلا يجاورون نسل خلقي وأجعل بين الجن وبين خلقي حجابا فلا يرى نسل خلقي الجن ولا يجالسونهم ولا يخالطونهم (Tafsir al-Qummi, Surat al-Baqara, verse 34)
  5. Muslim Congress

    Anyone here going or have been to these conferences? This will be my first year going and so I'm not sure what to expect
  6. And why exactly does it matter what he says? Seriously, let's stop giving these people the time that they crave. The best thing we can do is to start ignoring these people and pay more attention to genuine scholarship.
  7. He didn't exactly trash WF. And the "Marg bar" phrase hardly refers to ulema that have a different opinion of WF. Ask any iranian that chants this if he/she is referring to Ayatullahs Khoi, Sistani, Shaheed Sadr, or anyone who claimed a different model of WF. It refers to those who stand in active opposition and actively work towards weakening the state. He did bash ulema that go around to various communities discussing this matter. WF may be a theory, but it's also being put into practice. This is an outcome of putting that theory into practice. Those issues pertaining to global affairs will definitely be discussed to share that vision and movement with the public. If they are saying you have to do taqlid of Sayyid Khamenei, this is strange.
  8. Circular Reasoning Of Twelvers

    Couldn't a person believe in the 12 Imams without subscribing to Twelver sources? https://ahmedamiruddin.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/the-correct-position-on-the-twelve-imams-by-sayyid-ahmed-amiruddin/
  9. Debate Invitation

    Agree with baradar. If you are that concerned over whether you will be damned on the day of judgement, you wouldn't be asking for a debate.
  10. Debate Invitation

    OP, If you are seeking to deliver some truth, then there is no need to wait for a 1 on 1 debate or Shiachat mod endorsements. Just deliver the truth to us here. You will have performed your duty and been a mercy to us for allowing us the opportunity to know that which is from our Lord. Debating is not even the optimal way of spreading truth. It polarizes the parties involved and can harden hearts.
  11. Shirk (A Proof Of God?)

    What is your reasoning in claiming that this is falsely attributed to Imam Hussein (as)?
  12. A Guide To Losing Weight!

    Great post OP. Energy balance will be the major determining factor when it comes to losing weight. Every diet works in helping you lose weight. Most diets fail because they do not result in long term change. It is just as much a psychological issue as it is a physiological one. After dieting, our bodies and minds are really good at getting you back to your previous weight, or even above it. Eating more protein helps because it results in feeling more full. It also takes more energy (burns more calories) to digest protein. A smart strategy would be to change your eating habits to incorporate more foods that would increase satiety (feeling of fullness), and these are correlated with protein, fiber, and water content. These are worth checking out. http://nutritiondata.self.com/topics/fullness-factor http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7498104
  13. https://twitter.com/MustafaNajafi/status/601092339852038144 Is there any evidence that shows Ayatullah Sistani (ha) does not agree with "the iranian approach"?
  14. Hafez The Libertine

    lol... he was actually Hafez the Mullah
  15. Would You Rather Be Flogged Or Imprisoned?

    lol I'm only trying to see if put in the shoes of a person actually facing the punishment, would it be preferable to give up a significant chunk of time from life vs facing a temporary painful punishment. Lashing can be considered a barbaric punishment from the observer's perspective, but what is the perceived suffering of the convicted?
