  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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

  8. Fajr (Same definition by Shia & Sunnis?)

  9. 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.
  10. There is no zohr/asr nawafil on Fridays. Instead you have in total 20 rakats that can be read before zohr time spread from sunrise to zohr.
  11. "Believer" false translation?

    Muhammad does not come from hmd. It comes from hmmd.
  12. "Believer" false translation?

    Not every verb can have a m placed infront of it to make it have the meaning you suggest.
  13. "Believer" false translation?

    I dont think there is such a word as m-amn........amn ءمن is an intransitive verb so has no passive participle (ism mafool) which you are implying. If you write the arabic it would be better unserstood. Check the verb table here to see https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/أمن#Arabic
  14. "Believer" false translation?

    Not too sure I understand what you are trying to say but I will respond anyway Mu'man does indeed mean what is believed.... Mu'min means one who is a believer. Not sure where the confusion is tbh. I'm not aware of the islamic sources for the definitions of the words but i'm pretty sure they will be covered off in the various dictionaries (i gave the link in an earlier post which shows all the varieties of meanings). The verb is آمن....when it is used on it's own it means "to be rendered secure". When it is used with ب i.e. آمن به....it means "he believes in it/him". أمن has never been used to signify belief in something and mumin is not derived from this........"aamin" (active participle/ism faail) would be the equivalent.....only آمن has been used to signify belief from which mumin (active participle/ism faail) is derived. Anyway...translation seems perfectly valid to me
  15. "Believer" false translation?

    The word آمن has more than one meaning. This is the same word from which ايمان is derived from which we know means belief. Mu'min is the one who does the action of believing/protecting (ism faail). Whereas Muhammad is the one who is praised alot i.e. the one on whom the action of praising alot is done (ism maf'ul). http://ejtaal.net/aa/#hw4=48,ll=137,ls=5,la=140,sg=98,ha=33,br=75,pr=18,aan=49,mgf=68,vi=67,kz=66,mr=52,mn=40,uqw=139,umr=68,ums=49,umj=50,ulq=321,uqa=39,uqq=16,bdw=h56,amr=h31,asb=h33,auh=h119,dhq=h34,mht=h22,msb=h17,tla=h24,amj=h39,ens=h85,mis=h2125
