  1. Bismillah and Salaam everyone. Hope you are all healthy and well inshAllah. I have come in need of all your prayers inshAllah. I am hoping that through your prayers as I am a sinful human, maybe Allah will help me (not saying that He does not). I have been struggling with anxiety recently and once in a while it comes down hard. I have a hard time swallowing food and at random times trouble breathing. I want you all to pray for me, my health, and my life to get better inshAllah. If you can please, keep my family, and all those who are going through any kind of pain and struggle as well. My life in terms of mental, physical, and economic health is not so well. Alhamduillah none the less. I have been not feeling the same as I once used to and it scares me. If any of you is currently visiting the kaaba, the holy prophet, or any of our imams A.S. If it is not too much to ask please do a special request prayer for me there and if you can please donate any sum of money on behalf of me to whoever or whatever you wish be it for the sake of the shrine or for the poor. God bless you all, and thank you so much for this. I will as always keep you all in my prayers as well. Wa Salaam.
  2. In reading A Shi'ite Anthology, I get the impression that Allah's Oneness transcends attributes and names, but the Sunni tradition lists 99 names of Allah. I am sure that many of these names are found in the Qur'an, for example, ar-Rahman and ar-Raheem. Does this concept of 99 names of Allah exist in Shi'ia teachings? I know that Allah is beyond our comprehension, but He has described Himself in terms that we have some semblance of understanding as humans else the words would be meaningless. Do these various names give us some comprehension of the Uncomprehendable and Incomparable One?
  3. Surah Al Baqarah, 117th Ayat بَدِيعُ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلأَرۡضِ‌ۖ وَإِذَا قَضَىٰٓ أَمرً۬ا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُ ۥ كُن فَيَكُونُ The Originator of the heavens and the earth; and when He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be”, and it is. ------ Surah Al Lahab, 1st Ayat .تَبَّتْ يَدَآ أَبِى لَهَبٍ وَتَبَّ May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined, and ruined is he. ------ Some commentators have also translated the above ayat as 'May the hands of Abu Lahab be broken, and tabba to mean: may he perish of he perished. Q. Allah says be and it is then as soon as this ayat was revealed for Abu Lahab his should have broken or should have perished right on the sametime as Allah had made a decision then why did not it break? And please don't come up with assumptions of your own such as this ayat being metaphorical etc... Something authentic should come as a reply.
  4. As the Quran mentions in Surah 10 aya 47, there is a warner/messenger to every group of people and also you will find such a verse in surah 16 aya 36 and so on. If this is true then how does it say Surah 36 aya 6 that O Muhammed you may warn people who are not warned and their forefathers are not warned and so they are unaware. Isnt this a contradiction and as a Muslim this confuses me. If any of our brothers and sisters are able to clarify then please do.
  5. Asalam Alaykum everyone, It may be a childish question but please answer I'm very curious. In heaven, what do you do exactly? I know there is gardens and beautiful luxurious houses etc., but can you do things like fly, teleport, super speed, etc.? What age do you enter in? I heard we all enter in as adults, so babies like Imam Hussain's (a) son will enter heaven as an adult, and so will Mohsen ibn Ali (a) I heard we will all enter in the form of Nabi Adam (a), and the females in the form of Hawaa (eve). Is this true? If so how will we recognize prophet from prophet or imam from imam, or loved one from loved one? Also, when you go to heaven; do you still have relations with your family members? (mom,dad, children, etc.) And when you are in heaven, I know there are 7 levels/stages of heaven, does this mean if you are in any level other than 7, you cannot meet or see a prophet or imam, or holy personality? I hope this isn't the case, I really hope it isn't. That would be so terrible for me. Can you meet or request to see someone on a higher or lower level than you? SubhanAllah...
  6. Please explain the three attributes just, most compassionate and one when attributed to God. http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa2614 https://www.aparat.com/v/u93HC/خدا_برای_همه_ی_موجودات_ارحم_الراحمین_می_باشد
  7. Wikipedia notes: as well as: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahweh So, is YHWH the same as Allah? As a Christian, I certainly consider him my God, the only true God of all things, and the only one deserving of worship. I would consider Allah the Islamic "spin off" (I don't mean that in a rude or offensive way) of YHWH. Thoughts or other opinions/viewpoints?
  8. why ask help from imam?

    I need help one of my sunni freind ask that why u ask help from imam ??? And he said u should ask only from Allah ? What shpuld i reply help
  9. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Despite the repeated use of the phrase “there is no proof or evidence for the existence of God,” I would imagine most atheists, and indeed most people, are unaware that there is in fact a technical difference between evidence and proof. Fittingly, the distinction between proof and evidence was initially taught to me in an introductory evolutionary biology course by an ardent atheist professor during my first year of university. My professor used this distinction to justify why she would not be receiving objections to evolution in her class. (Literally, she said that we were not allowed to question evolution or present counter evidence during the lecture, and that she would not entertain it during her office hours.) It was the most bizarre and dogmatic moment I had in my entire education, and I say this as someone who was blessed to study theology in a seminary environment for a year. Contrary to popular opinion, the seminaries are far less dogmatic when it comes to foundational beliefs, as they permit questioning the existence of God and raising objections to the proofs offered. She argued that evolution was based upon good evidence, but could never attain the status of complete certainty. It was a probabilistic argument, like virtually all of science, rather than a demonstration, as in the case of mathematical proofs (and, as we shall see, metaphysical arguments.) I still vividly remember the slide used to showcase an example of rational certainty – it was that of a triangle with some lines and an accompanying trigonometric proof. Because evolution (along with all empirical science) could never attain 100% rational certainty, she argued that it was always possible to be a skeptic, to raise objections about inductive inferences which are probabilistic at best, or to posit alternative explanations that could explain the data, no matter how improbable. Oh the irony. If scientific atheists only applied their standards consistently, they would either deny science or accept God. We will see why more clearly later on when we explore the evidence for the existence of God. But there is neither here nor there. For now, what I want to do is just go over some basic concepts in reason in order to set the table for the coming arguments... This article was originally published on themuslimtheist.com.

  10. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم As we stated earlier, before we can answer the question “how can I know that God exists?” we must first ask the question “how do I know anything at all.” There are multiple ways that the intellect comes to know, and these modalities (or ways) of knowing are arranged hierarchically. I will go from the lowest form of knowledge to the highest – though this may seem unintuitive to the modern mind, which has been conditioned to see certainty as ordered in precisely the opposite direction. I will sort out these modern confusions as we proceed upon each level, inshaAllah. The lowest form of knowing, and the least certain is that of sense perception. “Huh? But I thought you had to see it to believe it?” you may ask. Ah, but you see sense perception deceives us all the time. We readily admit that. Sometimes we see things that aren’t really there, and sometimes what we see does not reflect reality. For instance, we perceive the earth as being flat, the sun as setting upon the horizon, the stars as being small, and if I were to put my finger in a glass of water it would appear to break due to the refraction of light. Your eyes deceive you Take a look at this clip around 12:30 where Dawkins himself says that if he were to see a direct sign of God – the heavens opening up and seeing the angels – he would still disbelieve in God. Instead, he would find it more probable that he were hallucinating, that David Blaine or some magician were playing a trick on him, or that aliens with some advanced technology could manipulate reality to make him think he were seeing what he were seeing. You can hear his own words here.... This article was originally published on themuslimtheist.com. Click here to continue reading.
  11. Salaamunalaiqum, I have a very busy schedule coz of my work, I pray my daily salaah but I am feeling very low spiritually. Can you people give me suggestion how to remember Allah and His Hujjat a. T. F. S during my office hours? Are there any practices which you all r doing and it's helping you... Please share
  12. Why do some Shias say Ya Ali Madad Do you not seek guidance strictly from Allah as Rasulalah s.a.w did the same. Ali a.s was a human being and not a Wahi since Prophet Mohammad s.a.w is the final Messenger. What is the belief behind this chant
  13. Salaam Has anyone here ever recited Allah SWTs 99 names from duas.org / similar? i wanted to ask about the recitation of Ya Aziz- it is said to recite it 115x for acquaintance with the unseen...anyone tried this and any results?
  14. SalamAlaykum Brothers and sisters, I hope you are well. I had another question that came in my mind. We have ancient texts of the Jewish Bible (Tanakh/Old Testament) that the name of the LORD was YHWH. But what about according to Islam? Was wondering if one of the names of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى was YHWH or if it's a man made name. Would really appreciate if a knowledgeable brother or sister can reply Jazakallah khair
  15. He is free of any Need. His Essence can't be known. He is Independent. He is Ever Living. He does not undergoes any state of change. His Attributes are known only to Him in the real Essence. I know He created us to know Him, to Love Him, not because He needs our Love and Devotion but because We need to know Him and to become best of His creations. But I had one Question, Why did He decided to create us? Why did He decided to shower His blessings upon a creation like us? Why? Why us? Any ahadeeth? Because this is a very basic Question of Tawheed. Any I suppose I can get as many as more than hundred thousand ahadeeths on this Question of mine. Please do a favor if you have some explanatory ahadeeth to this Question.
  16. Why we shouldn't skip prayers!

    I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  17. Did you know that Caliph Umar helped co-author the Quran. Here is prove directly from him: Narrated `Umar (bin Al-Khattab): My Lord agreed with me in three things: -1. I said, "O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), I wish we took the station of Abraham as our praying place (for some of our prayers). So came the Divine Inspiration: And take you (people) the station of Abraham as a place of prayer (for some of your prayers e.g. two rak`at of Tawaf of Ka`ba)". (2.125) -2. And as regards the (verse of) the veiling of the women, I said, 'O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ)! I wish you ordered your wives to cover themselves from the men because good and bad ones talk to them.' So the verse of the veiling of the women was revealed. -3. Once the wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) made a united front against the Prophet (ﷺ) and I said to them, 'It may be if he (the Prophet) divorced you, (all) that his Lord (Allah) will give him instead of you wives better than you.' So this verse (the same as I had said) was revealed." (66.5). Sahih al-Bukhari Book 8, Hadith 53 https://sunnah.com/bukhari/8/53 Thank you Caliph Umar for if it wasn't for you our deen wouldn't be complete, our women would be promiscuous and the Prophet's wives would have continued to harass him.
  18. Which Hawza city (Qom, Najaf, etc.) is best for learning Irfan? Which specific program do you recommend? Are these degrees connected to Academic degrees like Masters and PhD. I want to go to Hawza and focus primarily on the science of Irfan. I know it will take many years to master. I want to focus on theoretical and eventually practical Irfan.
  19. THE SAHABA KNEW OF IMAM ALI'S SUCCESSION TO THE PROPHET!Those who oppose the Shia repeatedly argue that the belief in Imam Ali (peace be upon him) succeeding the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) is a belief which was created later in history by a Jewish man, known as Abdullah bin Saba.Little do they read of their own most prominent books of Hadith - which they regard to be their most authentic collections of reports. For if they had delved into their very own Hadith books, they would know that this idea of Imam Ali's succession was something which was known amongst the people. watch the video
  20. The question is clear I think, and does not require further explanation. @Ali_Hussain, @313 Seeker, @yaAllahmadad, @S.M.H.A.
  21. Here is some dhikr of names of Allah certain amount of times to attain for example piouty, rizq, good manners etc. It is writen in the beginning of the link below but I don't understand really if it from imam Ali (as). Are there any other ahadith from Ahlulbayt about saying for example al-Fa'tiru 290 times everyday and a difficult will be easy or some other name of Allah certain times and corresponding benefit? https://www.al-islam.org/qunut-talib-hussain-zaidi/part-3-dhikr-beautiful-names-Allah
  22. So i came across this rather peculiar hadith when i was reading the famous shi'i hadith book by ibn Qulawayh you all know about, called Kamil al-Ziyarat, the hadith goes like the following: "Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said: One day Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.s.) was in Fatima’s house with Husain (a.s.) on his lap. Suddenly, the Prophet began to cry and went into prostration. Then he said: O Fatima, O daughter of Muhammad! Just now Allah the Most High and Exalted just appeared to me here in the most beautiful form and asked me, “O Muhammad! Do you love Husain (a.s.)?” I replied, “Yes, he is the light of my eyes, fruit of my heart, fragrant flower and the skin between my eyes.” Allah said: O Muhammad! – and placing His Hand on Husain’s head2 – Blessed is this newborn upon whom I have sent prosperity, blessings, mercy and pleasure. My curse, wrath, chastisement, disgrace and punishment are upon one who kills him, is inimical to him or rises up against him. Indeed, he is the Chief of Martyrs from the first to the last, in this life and Hereafter." hmm... i am really confused now, is this hadith reliable, is it not? Does this hadith have a particular meaning? Is it metaphorical? Lets assume this hadith is fabricated and has no origin, then we would have to admit that Kamil Al-Ziyarat is not completely reliable... But what if it is reliable, but the likes of Allah "putting His (AWJ) hand" on Hussain or Allah (AWJ) coming to the Holy Prophet (SAWS) in a beautiful form is nothing more than a metaphor. What is your take on this? Jazakum Allah khair jaza'
  23. I need a supplication for cure from his sickness. I want a dua so that he gets cured. Please pray for him.
  24. Salaam everyone. I have a request, see I was looking at this site, Sufi Comics, and I came upon that I really liked. So I looked around for the hadith it is based on but... I came up short. I tired many different search terms but I could not find it. So I would really appreciate it if someone could provide the hadith for me. Thanks!
