  1. Salam Cake. I have a few questions on a hadith. The hadith is the one we bring up from sunni books where it says 'ali is the wali of every believer after me'. Now looking into the debate on this hadith, i have seen 3 chains. 2 of them contains shiees so they reject those. However one of them does not, the chain with abi balj. However, our opponents argue that this chain is weak because abu balj made a mistake and was suppose to say maymoon abu abdillah instead of amr bin maymoon. Thoughts?

  3. @Cake Sorry to disturb you cake, but can you please tell me if these hadith are sahih

    Ali ibn Muhammad and others have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ayyub ibn Nuh from Safwan ibn Yahya from ibn Muskan from Badr ibn al-Walid from abu al-Rabi‘ al-Shami from abu ‘Abdallah

    Abu Ali al-Ash‘ari has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan from ibn Muskan from Badr ibn al-Walid from Abu al-Rabi‘ from abu ‘Abdallah

    Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from ‘Umrah ibn Musa from Musa ibn Ja‘far from ‘Amr ibn Sa‘id al-Mada’ini from abu ‘Ubayda al-Mada’ini from abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.)

      None of these three hadiths are reliable. I hope that this helps.

  4. May Allah make us all worthy of praise, cover our shortcomings, increase us in knowledge, guide us along the right path, and increase us in fear of Him. Amin.

  6. The burial is in Qum on the morning of the 19th there. Please supplicate, give in charity for him, and benefit from what he wrote - especially on the first night of his burial. Muhammad b. Isma`il from al-Fadl b. Shadhan from Safwan b. Yahya from Mu`awiyah b. `Ammar. He said: I said to Abi `Abdillah (al-Sadiq) (a): What reaches the deceased after his death? So he said: 1) A Sunnah that he established, that is acted on after his death. So, there would be the reward for him like that of the one who acted on it without decreasing their reward at all. 2) On-going charity, continuing after him. 3) A good-natured child, supplicating for his parents after their deaths. And he makes pilgrimage, gives in charity, and emancipates for them both. So I said: Am I to associate them in my pilgrimage? He said: Yes.
  7. Final juzs: 15 h. 16 k. 17 m.
  8. People off SC would like to read: #7- A: He very much wants to read this juz`. Please would Irfani313 read another one if he does not mind? #8 - J. #11 - I. #19 - Me.
  9. Please pick the juz's that you would all like to read on his behalf. I will make a list soon, unless someone beats me to it. (Regarding the cause of his passing, I am not very familiar with the details and I am personally unsure of whether it is appropriate to post more on that publicly).
  10. Salam. This is probably the best subforum on SC to post this. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji`un. I regret to inform you of the passing of brother Toyib. Those of you who have known him online will have known his ardent fervour for Tashayyu', his zeal for writing in defence of the truth, and his passion for spreading knowledge to help others. He had ambitions to help the people of his country, Nigeria, by studying and then writing in order to benefit its people. Like the rest of us, he was not a perfect person. But, may God forgive him and us our shortcomings, and have mercy upon him and us. He has had more than one account on SC in the past, of which the latest was probably: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/profile/185993-أبو-فاطمة-المحمدي/ If there is sufficient interest, perhaps we can carry out a complete reading/khatam of the Qur'an for him.
  11. My sister is showing interest....

    May I recommend that she read On the Muslim Question by Norton? It is an alternative view on themes such as war, women, etc.
  12. What just happened :O!?

    Quran, Hadith, Dua forum - which is one of the more active ones - has become part of Theology... There is also no reference to it there. There were clearly redundant and obsolete subforums, but this is too far in the opposite direction. With such a huge change, I hope that the moderators were involved in the discussion. Even the Development team. After all, it is their forum, too, and they are active. There is no point voting a moderator in, but having no say in something like this.
  13. Thank you for the update. Where else shall I lurk silently, watching for naughtiness, speaking once in a blue moon?
  14. At the same time, the door of forgiveness is always there for the one who feels truly regretful. So, a sin - even if it is a great one - does not mean the end of the world for someone. Moreover, when Allah forgives someone, then what right do others have to hold something historical against someone who had committed something in the past but regretted it intensely, did not repeat it, and greatly improved themselves? If your friend wishes not to undermine her shame and regret, then perhaps she ought to cut off all contact with this man; be wary of her own susceptibility to men vis-a-vis her desires and feelings, maintaining a greater distance from men than a woman who is less susceptible; and increase in her knowledge and appreciation of the Din, work on her spirituality, etc. Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." And return [in repentance] to your Lord and submit to Him before the punishment comes upon you; then you will not be helped. And follow the best of what was revealed to you from your Lord before the punishment comes upon you suddenly while you do not perceive, Lest a soul should say, "Oh [how great is] my regret over what I neglected in regard to Allah and that I was among the mockers." Or [lest] it say, "If only Allah had guided me, I would have been among the righteous." Or [lest] it say when it sees the punishment, "If only I had another turn so I could be among the doers of good." (Al-Zumar 39:53-58)
