  1. Tricky Rules

    I'd like to see the ruling for this too. First time i've heard this.
  2. What is correct dhikir Muhammad or Muhammadin?

    Na bro....it's about the Arabic. Muhammadin Muhammadan Muhammadin. All the same meaning. Just are different depending on where they are used in a sentence. Nothing to do with fiqh.
  3. Is Bitcoin Halal Under The Laws of Islam?

    So is there any fatwa etc regarding this?
  4. Lectures?

    AoA Where is the usual thread with all the lecturers etc? Also anyone know where Hamza Sodagar is reciting this year? Cant seem to find anything since he was "banned" last year
  5. Why do we revere Sayids?

    On http://quran.al-islam.org check the tafseer for surah momenoon verse 101 (23:101) onwards.....you will find the agha Haji Mirza Mahdi Pooya state: The Holy Prophet said: "All distinctions and relations shall cease to exist on the day of resurrection except the distinction and relation connected with me." You can also check the tafseer for the same verse in Tafseer Namoona by Makarem Shirazi where he provides the same tradition. The reference given is from Majma Ul Bayan by Shaykh Tabrasi (shia). There are further traditions (albeit from sunni sources which should not in itself discredit them) on shiapen given - just scroll down the page to "Reply – The familial lineage of the descendants of Muhammad (s) shall not be severed on the Day of Judgment": http://www.shiapen.com/comprehensive/non-egalitarian-imamate/hereditary-leadership.html HTH
  6. Why do we revere Sayids?

    Wow...comparing Syeds to Khojas Anyhow as much as some people may dislike it: https://www.al-islam.org/a-shiite-creed-shaykh-saduq/concerning-alids-alawiya Also there are other hadith saying things like the only lineage that will remain on the day of jusgement is the lineage of the Prophet saww and all else will be cut off. One more thing...the haters must be bursting with fury by now....surah Fatir verse 32...... Surah Fatir, Verse 32: ثُمَّ أَوْرَثْنَا الْكِتَابَ الَّذِينَ اصْطَفَيْنَا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا فَمِنْهُمْ ظَالِمٌ لِّنَفْسِهِ وَمِنْهُم مُّقْتَصِدٌ وَمِنْهُمْ سَابِقٌ بِالْخَيْرَاتِ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْفَضْلُ الْكَبِيرُ Then We gave the Book for an inheritance to those whom We chose from among Our servants; but of them is he who makes his soul to suffer a loss, and of them is he who takes a middle course, and of them is he who is foremost in deeds of goodness by Allah's permission; this is the great excellence. (English - Shakir) According to the interpretation of Imam Muhammad bin Ali al Baqir and Imam Jafar bin Muhammad as Sadiq the reference in this verse is to the progeny of Ali and Fatimah, which is the progeny of the Holy Prophet. (i) There are those who do not recognise Allah's chosen Imam of the age. They are those "who make their souls suffer." (ii) There are those who although recognise the Imam of the age but are not fully aware of the laws ordained by Allah and its proper application in day to day life. (iii) The Imams of the Ahl ul Bayt are Allah's chosen guides who live a godly life governed by perfect knowledge and practical application of all the Quranic injunctions. By their inherent example they stand as guides to humanity, constantly calling the people towards truth and godliness, and forbidding evil in every form.
  7. Dictionary?

  8. NEW DEBATE Muhammad Hijab vs Shia Academic

    I think the point was to prove imama from the Quran only and not hadith. The shia brother mentioned this at the start and also repeated it later..and this is why he did not use any hadith. Also the problem with this "debate" was that the shias were on the defensive trying to prove a concept of their own rather than on the attack. Anyway i think the bro did a good job and at least he stuck to what he mentioned at the start and did not go off topic. All that was needed to be proved was the concept of Imama from the Quran and he did it pretty well (although the sunnis disagreed!), and like he mentioned there were many many other verses he could have used but did not. I don't think he got owned at all, it just kind of showed up the sunnis' lack of understanding around the concept of imama. The problem is they want the concept from the Quran, when you give them the concept with explicit verses, they want you to show that there are 12 of the imams using only the Quran, then they want their names and so on and so on and so on.
  9. Taraweeh - shia narrations

    Dood...not sure why you posting here as I never asked for the sunni opinion......maybe you need to get back to this: Clearly relying upon a single dodgy narration which contradicts other narrations to try and prove taraweeh and then make assertions as though they are facts.
  10. Taraweeh - shia narrations

    The thing about the narration in Bukhari is that it says some people were praying individually and some were already praying in small groups.....then Umar gathered them into one massive group? What were the small groups praying? Isha?
  11. Aoa, Are there any narrations from our imams (as) regarding the taraweeh prayers that the sunni pray and how it is an innovation? I.e. praying the nawafils in congregation being wrong. I know about all the hadith in Bukhari about it but would like to know what the Imams said about it etc. Thanks
  12. Concerning The Alids ('alawiya) Says the Shaykh Abu Ja'far, the mercy of Allah upon him: Our belief concerning the Alids ('alawiya) is that they are the progeny of the Messenger of Allah, and that devotion to them is obligatory, because it is the requital of his apostleship. Says Allah, Exalted is He: “Say (O Muhammad, unto mankind): I ask of you no requital therefor, save loving - kindness of (my) kinsfolk” (Qur'an 42:23).1 The acceptance of sadaqa2 is forbidden to them, because it is the dirt contained in the hands of the people. And there is no purification3 for them (the people) save what they give to their (sadat's) slaves and slave-girls, or to one another. But as for the khumus, this is permitted to them in lieu of the zakat, which was forbidden to them. And our belief concerning those (sadat or 'alawiya) who act sinfully is that they will be punished doubly, and those who do good acts among them will receive a double reward. .............etc

  15. How to offer nawafil of asar in zohrayn prayers

    772. There are many Mustahab prayers which are generally called Nafilah, but more stress has been laid on the daily Mustahab prayers. The number of the Rak'ats everyday excluding Friday, is 34. It is an follows: 8 Rak'ats Nafilah for Zuhr 8 Rak'ats Nafilah for Asr 4 Rak'ats Nafilah for Maghrib 2 Rak'ats Nafilah for Isha 11 Rak'ats Nafilah for Tahajjud (Namaz-e-Shab) 2 Rak'ats Nafilah for FajrAs an obligatory precaution, the Nafilah for Isha prayers should be offered while sitting, and therefore its 2 Rak'ats are counted as one. But on Friday, 4 Rak'ats are added to the 16 Rak'ats of the Zuhr and the Asr Nafilah, and it is preferable that all these 20 Rak'ats are offered before the Zuhr sets in.
