  1. وَاحِدٌ لاَ بِعَدَد، وَدَائِمٌ لاَ بِأَمَد، وَقَائِمٌ لاَ بَعَمَد، تَتَلَقَّاهُ الاْذْهَانُ لاَ بِمُشَاعَرَة، وَتَشْهَدُ لَهُ الْمَرَائِي لاَ بِمُحَاضَرَة، لَمْ تُحِطْ بِهِ الاَْوْهَامُ، بَلْ تَجَلَّى لَهَا بِهَا، وَبِهَا امْتَنَعَ مِنهَا، وَإِلَيْهَا حَاكَمَهَا، لَيْسَ بِذِي كِبَر امْتَدَّتْ بِهِ النِّهَايَاتُ فَكَبَّرَتْهُ تَجْسِيماً، وَلاَ بِذِي عِظَم تَنَاهَتْ بِهِ الْغَايَاتُ فَعَظَّمَتْهُ تَجْسِيداً بَلْ كَبُرَ شَأْناً، وَعَظُمَ سُلْطَاناً. He(God) is One, but not by counting. He is everlasting without any limit. He is existent without any support. Minds admit of Him without (any activity of the) senses. Things which can be seen stand witness to Him without confronting Him. Imagination cannot encompass Him. He manifests Himself to the imagination with his help for the imagination, and refuses to be imagined by the imagination. He has made imagination the arbiter (in this matter). He is not great in the sense that volume is vast and so His body is also great. Nor is He mighty in the sense that His limits should extend to the utmost and so His frame be extensive. But He is great in position and mighty in authority. ~Imam Ali (as) Nahjul Balagha sermon 185
  2. What was the reason and substantiate it with reference
  3. the scholars have said that there are two kinds of 'Will of God' one which is for Ahkaam and issues like that, that AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì wants to change and send them whenever needed which is called Irada Al-Tashri'i, and the other is that kind of 'Will' which is eternal,Irada Al-Takwini, the eternal Will means Allah always wanted that, and since whatever He wills it will be done, so when AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì created the Prophet(saw) and his Household he purified them and took away every impurity from them. and that was even before AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì has created Adam(a.s), otherwise it would mean that the Prophet(saw) was not infallible prior to this verse. about Irada(Will) of Allah there are books that have been written, it is a very complicated issue though. this being said that this verse is not the only verse that proves the infallibility of the Prophet(saw) and Ahlulbayt(saw), there are more verses that prove the infallibility of the Prophet(saw) and his successors, like the Sura Al-Waqi'a[56:79]. this verse says: "do not touch it(i.e. Qur'an) except the pure ones." note that there should have been those 'pure ones' that AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì pointed to them, otherwise it doesn't make any sense. btw touching in this verse is not the physical touch, as it is clear that every impure person can touch it physically, the meaning of touching here is touching of the true meanings of Qur'an and the narrations of Ahlulbayt(a.s) state it clearly. other verse is [2:124] when Ibraheem(a.s) asked Imamat for his children but AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì said that it would not be given to the unjust, since every sin is unjust, so the Imamat is only given to infallibles. and verse [4:59], [9:119] and so on.
  4. Sister the greatest gift God has given us is our ability to bear without breaking and this ability comes with hope . Vicissitudes make me depressed most of the times as well . Whenever I feel like this , I just open Bhagvad-geeta and its soothing verses fill my heart and mind with patience and calmness . Let me share some of them The non-permanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed. Reference: Bhagavad Gita 2.14 "For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends ; but for one who has failed to do so , his mind will remain the greatest enemy." Bhagvad-Gita 6:6 The true yogis, uniting their consciousness with God, see with equal eye, all living beings in God and God in all living beings.Reference : Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6, Verse 29
  5. Studies/ grades alone doesn't determine whether a person is intelligent or not : ) . Philosophical people are very intelligent and sagacious , not being able to screen out unnecessary stimuli, over analyzing and over thinking everything, being able to see through fake and shallow people surely take toll.
  6. “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.”~Ernest Hemingway
  7. No. the verse says 'If you disagree'. It doesn't say anything about 'if those vested in authority dispute with each other'. That answers all the objections above. As for the verse regarding the Quran the Shias have their own interpretation. The other issue here is that assuming that those vested in authority should be obeyed or followed we come to know that the so called 'Rightly guided Caliphs' and adhering to their ways is not compatible with the Sunni ideology. For example let us look at the following statement from the renowned scholar Ibn Qayyim; 'The violations of Umar against Abu Bakr are widely known, and don’t require mention. As he went against him on the matters of captures of apostates whom Abu Bakr captured, but Umar did not. And the violation went so far that he freed the apostates to their families. 'Source: A'lam Ul-Muwaqqi'een 'an Rabb il A'lameen. Vol. 3, Pg. # 530. Abu Bakr treated the captives as slaves and apostates, yet Umar disagreed. Now the Muslim's must obey those in authority and adhere to the Sunnah of the rightly guided Khalifah's who do not innovate according to Hadith. These rightly guided Khalifahs disagreed with each other and Umar evidently did not agree to follow the orders of Abu Bakr. Indeed, if Abu Bakr had been acknowledged as a Khalifah of his era, then Umar was required to obey him unless he was sinning. From this, we can only conclude that Umar himself did not believe Abu Bakr was rightly guided. Alternatively this non existent belief that Sunnis have come to believe today was not present even in the views of the idols they follow.
  8. ok so what is the problem then ? It is the character of person that matters most. Lineage doesn't matter but unfortunately sunni understands this much better than shias these days
  9. That is very astute of you august brother but as per the prevailing hamartia ; humans have been wearing a mask for so long that they have forgotten who they were beneath it .
  10. insaan ka chehra bhi bari ajeeb cheez hai . Ye bilkul piyaz ki manind hota hai . Ess ko cheelay chalay jao . Jab tamam paratain (layers) cheel chukain gay tab ja kar asli chehra dikhnay ko milay ga
  11. Why human is the only creature who refuses to be what he is ?

  13. It is beyond my imagination how the tiny creatures like bees and ants are still protected from their takfeer
  14. both do takfeer of each other . الْإِمَامَ أَبَا بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ إسْحَاقَ بْنِ خُزَيْمَة يَقُولُ : مَنْ لَمْ يُقِرَّ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى عَرْشِهِ قَدْ سْتَوَى فَوْقَ سَبْعِ سَمَوَاتِهِ ؛ فَهُوَ كَافِرٌ بِهِ حَلَالُ الدَّمِ يُسْتَتَابُ فَإِنْ تَابَ ؛ وَإِلَّا ضُرِبَتْ عُنُقُهُ وَأُلْقِيَ عَلَى بَعْضِ الْمَزَابِلِ . Imam Aba Bakr Muhammad bin Ishaq bin Khuzaima said: ‘Whoever does not admit that Allah is sitting on a throne above the seventh sky, is a Kafir and his blood must be shed. He must be made to repent. Otherwise his neck must be struck and thrown into the garbage.’ Majmo’a al-Fatawa, Volume 5, page 391 In ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' it is said that attributing a place to Allah is disbelief. In the book ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' compiled by shaykh Nidham and a group of 500 scholars, it is mentioned that: (/it is said:) '' Whoever attributes a place to Allah ta'ala has disbelieved '' Following on from this it says: '' And if he says, '' Allahu fi's-sama '' , [there are two cases:] if his aim was to simply repeat what has been transmitted to us in its apparent manner from the texts, then he has not disbelieved, but if through this, he desires 'the place' then he has disbelieved '' Useful infomation : al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah is a compilation of fatawa from Hanafi scholars from Asia, mainly from the Indian sub-continent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh...) that gathers together nearly all the opinions of the Hanafi school, and until today it is a reference with regards to the rulings of that school. It was written more than 300 years ago. It is said that 500 scholars from the Indian sub-continent worked on this compilation (a group of scholars from each stated was in charge of one chapter), and they would only write a fatwa when there was no dispute about it. The original title of this compilation is Fatawa-e-Alamgiri, in persian, from the name of sultan Aurangzeb, deceased in 1707, who had facilitated the compilation of these fatawa. They were quickly renamed ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' in arabic. - Here (/In it) it is clearly stated that attributing a place to Allah is disbelief. And also, he who says '' Allahu fi's-sama '' through these words, aiming to attribute a place to Allah has also disbelieved.
  15. What is the big deal if there are mickle of Sunni Huffaz? Everyone is cognizant of how brutally children are treated in their seminaries. They are beaten , lashed and rebuked for committing minor mistakes and asking questions. They are forced to rote learn the verses of Quran .These seminaries are the hatcheries of suicide bombers and mass murderers .I have a firsthand knowledge of this prevailing hamartia. If someone considers it to be an achievement of monumental value then I pity such rotten intellect
