  1. who is your favorite recitor?

    so, who is your favorite recitor? and what do you like? quick or slow?
  2. Salaam, So I got into an interesting discussion with a Sunni brother about what is more important - the Prophet (saw) or the Quran? I said, "Prophet" He said, "Quran" Thoughts?
  3. 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.
  4. Salaam Alaikum brothers and sisters! "But that day belongs to the Lord, the LORD Almighty-- a day of vengeance, for vengeance on his foes. The sword will devour till it is satisfied, till it has quenched its thirst with blood. For the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will offer sacrifice in the land of the north by the River Euphrates." Jeremiah 46:10 Thoughts on this verse? Do you guys think it is in reference to Imam Mahdi (as).
  5. Salaam Hope everything is good with you and your family. May the Imam of time (ajtf) bless you all with great blessings in this world and success hereafter. It is my utmost pleasure to introduce our brothers and sisters about the Quran application that MAHRAM (Maulana Aejaz Husain Rizvi Academic mission) team from Lucknow, India, has developed for the iOS and is available for download on Apple Appstore (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-last-reminder-holy-quran/id1303541064?mt=8) You may wonder what prompted me (member of MAHRAM team) to burn my midnight oil for last 5 months to develop a Quran application while there are loads of Quran application already available on Appstore and Playstore? Because none of the Quran application available have any Quran translation from Shi’a Ulama or Commentaries (Tafasir) from our Ulama, especially in English language. You would be surprised to know that alone in India, daily 3 million people search for the keyword “Quran” in Apple Appstore and they are downloading the apps which are available in top 10 positions (search results). So far, we have launched the iOS basic version (all Quran chapters, translations of our Ulama in English, Urdu, Persian etc. and Tafsir like Tafsir Al-Mizan (12 volumes) in English and Study Quran Tafsir by Sayyed Hussein Nasr). I have put my lot of efforts in developing this application but I do not have budgets for full scale marketing. Therefore, can I request my brothers and sisters who have been blessed with great number of following to help me spread the word about this application so that maximum number of believers get benefited? I would recommend you all if you are using an iPhone or Android to try it yourself the application to witness the hard-work and if you feel delighted with the work, then pray for the success of efforts and share feedback on Appstore or Playstore. Download it either by searching the keyword “The Last Reminder - Holy Quran” in Appstore/Playstore or download it from respective Application stores: iOS App: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-last-reminder-holy-quran/id1303541064?mt=8 Android App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=in.hexalab.holyquran May Allah’s choicest blessings be upon Muhammad pbuh and his holy progeny. Wassalamo Alaykum http://www.thelastreminderapp.com http://facebook.com/thelastreminderapp
  6. Imamah in Quran

    I'm a sunni I want to know 1 aya that says imam Ali is imam in the quran. I don't want to hear the ruku argument cuz abu bakr also gave zakat in Ruku.
  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. Is the Qur'an from GOD?

    SalamAlaykum Dear Brothers and Sister, This question might have been asked a several times on SC but what evidence do we have that the Qur'an has no ERRORS and that it is from GOD What is the biggest EVIDENCE that makes you say "YES THE QURAN IS WITHOUT A DOUBT FROM Allah AND THERE NO MISTAKES" As we also are aware, there are VARIANTS of the QURAN such as HAFS and WARSH. If the QURAN is the UNALTERED Word from the CREATOR then why are there VARIANTS The VARIANTS arent the main focus of this THREAD but the EVIDENCE for it being from the CREATOR and that it has no ERRORS PLEASE DO NOT BRING VERSES WHICH MENTION IT IS FROM Allah OR THAT IT DOESNT CONTAIN ERRORS AS THAT IS A CIRCULAR ARGUMENT Peace
  9. Following the Prophet: The following verses describe the instruction to follow the Prophet saaw. لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِمَنْ كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا Ye have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern of (conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day and who engages much in the praise of Allah. (33:21) يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌۭ رَّحِيمٌۭ َ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّه : Say: "If ye do love Allah follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful." (3:31) قُلْ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ {٣٢} 003:032 Say, ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger.’ But if they turn away, indeed Allah does not like the faithless. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَلَا تَوَلَّوْا۟ عَنْهُ وَأَنتُمْ تَسْمَعُونَ {٢٠} 008:020 O you who have faith! Obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not turn away from him while you hear [him]. قُلْ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا۟ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْهِ مَا حُمِّلَ وَعَلَيْكُم مَّا حُمِّلْتُمْ ۖ وَإِن تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا۟ ۚ وَمَا عَلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ إِلَّا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ {٥٤} 024:054 Say, ‘Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger.’ But if you turn your backs, [you should know that] he is only responsible for his burden and you are responsible for your own burden, and if you obey him, you will be guided, and the Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. ۞ يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ أَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَلَا تُبْطِلُوٓا۟ أَعْمَٰلَكُمْ {٣٣} 047:033 O you who have faith! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and do not render your works void. ٣_١٣٢ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ 003:132 and obey Allah and the Messenger so that you may be granted [His] mercy. ٥_٩٢ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَٱحْذَرُوا۟ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ فَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّمَا عَلَىٰ رَسُولِنَا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ 005:092 And obey Allah and obey the Messenger, and beware; but if you turn your backs, then know that Our Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَلَا تَنَٰزَعُوا۟ فَتَفْشَلُوا۟ وَتَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ ۖ وَٱصْبِرُوٓا۟ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلصَّٰبِرِينَ {٤٦} 008:046 And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute, or you will lose heart and your power will be gone. And be patient; indeed Allah is with the patient. وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ ۚ فَإِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَىٰ رَسُولِنَا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ٱلْمُبِينُ {١٢} 064:012 Obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away, then Our Messenger’s duty is only to communicate in clear terms. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تُقَدِّمُوا۟ بَيْنَ يَدَىِ ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ ۖ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌۭ {١} 049:001 O you who have faith! Do not venture ahead of Allah and His Messenger, and be wary of Allah. Indeed Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing. How to Follow the Prophet?: First Example: Mubahila The Verse of Malediction (Mubahala). فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَل لَّعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ "But whoever disputes with you (O' Muhammad) in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our selves (anfus) and your selves, then let us beseech Allah and invoke His curse upon the liars" Our'an(3:61) This verse points towards an epoch-making event, narrated by all historians and commentators; an event which revealed to the Muslims how near and dear the progeny of the Prophet are to Allah the Exalted. This event which clearly marked out the distinct status of the AhIul-Bait, is known in the annals of Islamic history as Mubahala, that is invoking Allah's malediction on the liars. Historians and exegists have narrated the event as follows: A deputation (5) from the Christians of Najran came to the Prophet of Islam to argue the merits of their faith. The Holy Prophet advanced to them arguments showing that Jesus the son of Mary was a human-being and a Prophet, and it was blasphemy to regard him as a son of God, because Allah the Exalted is high above all such human characteristics. It was, when the Prophet having argued to the point fully and convincingly, found them still deliberately persisting in their false belief in the deity of Prophet Jesus. that Allah revealed this verse. It was a challenge to the Christians, to pray and invoke Allah that the curse may overtake the party that insisted upon falsehood. Early the next morning on the 24th of the lunar month of Dhilhijja, the Prophet in accordance with Allah's command came out to the meeting grounds, carrying Husain in his arms and leading Hasan (our sons) by his hand, followed by his beloved daughter Fatima (our women), behind whom came Ali (our selves) carrying the banner of Islam. Seeing the Prophet was accompanied by his immediate family and convinced that Muhammad (s.a.w.) was truthful, otherwise he would not have dared to bring his dearest of kin along, the Christians hacked away from the maledictory confrontation and agreed to pay Jizya instead. Zamakhshari says in his book Al-Kashshaf: That (when this verse was revealed) the Prophet asked the Christians to a Mubahala (malediction) to invoke the curse of Allah on the liars. The Christians held a discourse among themselves that night. in which their leader Abdul Massih stated his views as follows: "By God, O Christians, you know that Muhammad is a God-sent Prophet, who has brought to you the final message from your Lord. By God, no nation ever dared to challenge a Prophet for malediction, but woe befell them. Not only will they perish hut their children will also be afflicted with the curse". Saying that it is better to reach a compromise with the Prophet. rather than challenge his truth and perish, Abdul Massih advised his party to stop hostilities and retain their religion, by submitting to the Prophet's terms. "So if you persist (for a confrontation), we will all perish. But if you want to keep your faith you should refuse (to have a showdown) and remain as you are. Therefore make peace with the man (the Prophet) and return to your land'. Zamakhshari continues: "the next day the Prophet. carrying Husain in his arms, leading Hasan by the hand; followed by his daughter Fatima, behind whom came Ali, entered the appointed place and was heard saying (to his AhluI-Bait): "When I invoke Allah, you all say: Amen. The pontiff of Najran on seeing the Prophet and his AhluI-Bait, addressed the Christians: "O' Christians, I am beholding such faces that if God wishes (for their sake), He would move mountains from their places. Do not accept their challenge for Mubahala for if you do you would all perish and there would remain no Christian on the face of the earth till the Day of Resurrection.' Heeding his advice the Christians said to the Prophet: "O Abul Qasim, we decided not to hold Mubahala with you. You keep your religion and we will keep ours. The Prophet told them: "If you refuse to hold (Mubahala), then submit, (accept Islam) and you will receive what the Muslims receive, and contribute what the Muslims contribute. . The Christians saying they had no desire to fight the Arabs. proposed a treaty asking for peace, and freedom from forced compulsion to make them forsake their religion. In return they agreed to pay the Muslims an annual tribute of two thousand suits; one thousand of which in the month of Safar and the remaining one thousand in Rajab, besides thirty coats of iron mail. Accepting the proposal the Prophet remarked: "By the One Who has my soul in His hand, death was looming large over the people of Najran. (Had they dared to accept the challenge of Mubahala'). They would have been transformed into apes and swines, and the valley would have been set ablaze. Allah would have destroyed Najran with its people, sparing not even the birds on the treetops, and before the passing of the year the Christians would have all been dead." Continuing his comments on the Mubahala verse', Zamakhshari lays emphasis on the position of the AhluI-Bait by quoting the following narration from the Prophet's wife Aa'isha: He mentioned them Ahllul -Bait before mentioning the word selves in order to highlight their position and their proximity (to Allah), and to stress their preference to selves', which could be sacrificed for them. ..There is no stronger evidence than this regarding the merits of the Ahl aI-Kisa(6). It is the proof of the truthfulness of the Prophet's mission, because nobody however biased has narrated that they(the Christians) dared to accept that (the challenge for Mubahala) . Fakhruddin Razi in his al-Tafsir al-Kabir', gives an identical narration and after having stated what Zamakhshari has said; adds: Mind, that all interpreters (of the Qur'an) and narrators (of the Prophet's traditions) are unanimous about the authenticity of this narration . Allama Muhammad Husain Tabataba'i the renowned modern day exegist, in his monumental commentary on the Holy Qur'an, Tafsir al-Mizan', referring to the verse those through whom Allah has cursed their enemies', says that these are none other than the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. He adds ...this narration has been related by all traditionists and recorded by all compilers (of traditions) in their collections, such as Muslim in his Sahih' and Tirmidhi in his Sahih', besides historians have confirmed it as well. Ever since the interpreters have related it without any objection or doubt, including such famous traditionists and historians as Tabari, Abul Fida, Ibn Kathir, Suyuti and others.' Thus in the light of the above discussions it is clear that all interpreters have unanimously defined the Ahlul-Bait as Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain. The very mention of them in the Mubahala verse, which makes them the means for invoking Allah is a clear pointer to their lofty and sanctified stature. The fact that Allah asked His Messenger to bring these pure personalities along with him to the malediction grounds is once again a clear proof of their purity. The challenge for invoking Allah's curse on His enemies, discloses in what high esteem they were held by the Almighty. Since the confrontation was between truth and falsehood, two directly opposite currents, the situation demanded that faith be represented by its very best, upon whom the whole edifice of Islam stood. And no one was more qualified to accompany the Prophet to Mubahala, on whose outcome hung the fate of Islam, than his Ahlul-Bait: the torch of guidance and virtue. The Almighty -bearers Allah, Who Himself had bestowed on them the mantle of purity earlier in the Holy Qur'an, once again made them the cynosure of all eyes, proving the truth of Islam through them. In fact, He, the All-wise was indicating to the faint-hearted Muslims that the continuation of divine mission will not stop with the Seal of the Prophets, but will continue through his infallible progeny. No invocation of theirs would be ignored and no word of theirs could be belied; even mountains would move, by their mere utterances as was well understood by the Christians. This itself is sufficient to remove the last lingering doubts from the minds of certain segments about these immaculate personalities; the result of centuries of hypocrisy, which misled many simple souls. With the clearing of the mist, the picture gradually emerges all the more vivid that what we have received from the Ahlul-Bait; of teachings, thoughts, interpretations, narrations, jurisprudence etc... .is the pure unpolluted nectar of Islam, bequeathed by the Prophet and sincerely preserved and conveyed to the Muslims by his Household. Through them the Qur'an challenged the enemies of Islam, and made it clear for all time that those who oppose them are nothing but liars, deserving to be cursed and punished: ...invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie.' Had it not been for their eternal truth and unwavering steadfastness, Allah would never have bestowed upon them such an honour, and the Qur'an would not have spoken of them in such glowing terms. There are some minute linguistic points in this verse which are worthy of note. This group (Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Husain) is used as the adjunct, and the Prophet as the possessor, in a genetive term, as is seen in our sons', our women' and ourselves'. Had not the Prophet taken Fatima along with him, people would have thought that our women' means the Prophet's wives and our sons' refers to Fatima though she was a female and ourselves' indicates his sacred self alone. But by taking along only these four and no one else besides the Prophet was showing the Muslims, that the best example for women is Fatima and the best example for boys are Hasan and Husain, according to the Qur'an's wordings, which also delicately used the word our selves for Ali, thereby pointing to his close proximity with the Prophet, and solving the question of succession once and for all. Verse of Mubahila فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِن بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنفُسَنَا وَأَنفُسَكُمْ 1. Prophet Muhammad SAWW 2. Imam Ali AS 3. Fatima Al Zahra SA 4. Imam Hassan AS 5. Imam Hussain Ahl albayat are true followers of the foot step of the prophet to declare the victory and truth of the religion. No one else including wives and Companions have this status. Second Example: Verse of Purification إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا 1. Narrated Aisha: One day the Prophet (S) came out afternoon wearing a black cloak (upper garment or gown; long coat), then al-Hasan Ibn ‘Ali came and the Prophet accommodated him under the cloak, then al-Husayn came and entered the cloak, then Fatimah came and the Prophet entered her under the cloak, then ‘Ali came and the Prophet entered him to the cloak as well. Then the Prophet recited: "Verily Allah intends to keep off from you every kind of uncleanness O’ People of the House (Ahlul-Bayt), and purify you a perfect purification (the last sentence of Verse 33:33)." Sahih Muslim, Chapter of virtues of companions, section of the virtues of the Ahlul-Bayt of the Prophet (S), 1980 Edition Pub. in Saudi Arabia, Arabic version, v4, p1883, Tradition #61. 2- "The Tradition of Cloak”which is related to Safiyya who was another wife of the Prophet (S). Ja’far Ibn Abi Talib narrated: When the Messenger of Allah noticed that a blessing from Allah was to descent, he told Safiyya (one of his wives): "Call for me! Call for me!”Safiyya said: "Call who, O the Messenger of Allah?”He said: "Call for me my Ahlul-Bayt who are ‘Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn.”Thus we sent for them and they came to him. Then the Prophet (S) spread his cloak over them, and raised his hand (toward sky) saying: "O Allah! These are my family (Aalee), so bless Muhammad and the family (Aal) of Muhammad.”And Allah, to whom belong Might and Majesty, revealed: "Verily Allah intends to keep off from you every kind of uncleanness O’ People of the House (Ahlul-Bayt), and purify you a thorough purification (Qur’an, the last sentence of Verse 33:33)". References: • al-Mustadrak by al-Hakim, Chapter of "Understanding (the virtues) of Companions, v3, p148. The author then wrote: "This tradition is authentic (Sahih) based on the criteria of the two Shaikhs (al-Bukhari and Muslim)." 3-Another version of the "Tradition of Cloak”is written in Sahih al-Tirmidhi, which is narrated in the authority of Umar Ibn Abi Salama, the son of Umm Salama (another wife of Prophet), which is as follows: The verse "Verily Allah intends to ... (33:33)" was revealed to the Prophet (S) in the house of Umm Salama. Upon that, the Prophet gathered Fatimah, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn, and covered them with a cloak, and he also covered ‘Ali who was behind him. Then the Prophet said: "O’ Allah! These are the Members of my House (Ahlul-Bayt). Keep them away from every impurity and purify them with a perfect purification.”Umm Salama (the wife of Prophet) asked: "Am I also included among them O Apostle of Allah?”the Prophet replied: "You remain in your position and you are toward a good ending." Reference: Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v5, pp 351,663 4. In the tradition of al-Hakim the wording the last question and answer is as follows: Umm Salama said: "O Prophet of Allah! Am I not one of the members of your family?”The Holy Prophet replied: "You have a good future but only these are the members of my family. O Lord! The members of my family are more deserving." Reference: al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v2, p416 Also the wording reported by al-Suyuti and Ibn al-Athir is as follows: Umm Salama said to the Holy Prophet: "Am I also one of them?”He replied: "No.You have your own special position and your future is good." Reference: • Usdul Ghabah, by Ibn al-Athir, v2, p289 • Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthoor, by al-Suyuti, v5, p198 Thus confirming that the traditions narrated by the wives of the prophet indicate that Fatima, Ali, Hasan, and Hussain are ahl albayt of the prophet. Also it is confirmed that the wives are not covered under the scope of the verse of purification. Verse of Purification for Prophet and Ahl albayat إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا 1. Prophet Muhammad Saww 2. Imam Ali AS 3. Fatima Al Zahra SA 4. Imam Hassan AS 5. Imam Hussain AS Ahl albayat are true Followers of the prophet as per verse of Mubahila. They followed the foot step of the prophet to declare the victory and truth of the religion. They also share the verse of Purification to declare their purification ie the same level of purification as that of the prophet himself covered in the verse of purification. No one else including wives and companions share this status. Third Eevnt: Verse of Muwadah: قُل لَّا أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِلَّا الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَىٰ It has been widely reported by the Sunni commentators of the Holy Qur’an that: Ibn Abbas narrated: When the above verse (42:23) was revealed, the companions asked: "O’ the Messenger of Allah! Who are those near kin whose love Allah has made obligatory for us?”Upon that the Prophet (S) said: "‘Ali, Fatimah, and their two sons.”He (S) repeated this sentence thrice. References: 1.

References: • Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p26 • al-Sirah, by al-Mala The Messenger of Allah (S) said: "I advice you to be kind to my Ahlul-Bayt for verily I will dispute you about them on the day of Judgment, and whoever I dispute him shall enter the Fire.”He (S) also said: "One who regards me by regarding my Ahlul-Bayt, he has taken a promise from Allah (to enter the Paradise)."

The Prophet Declared to follow his Ahl albayat: The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said it at Arafat, in front of all the Muslims during his Farewell Sermon. . Imam Tirmidhi in his Sunan (Vol. 5, p. 662, no. 3786) records the following tradition: Jabir ibn `Abd Allah said: "I saw the Messenger of Allah - upon whom be God's peace and benedictions - in the course of his hajj pilgrimage on the day of `Arafah. The Prophet (S) was seated on his camel, alQaswa', and was delivering a sermon. I heard him say: 'O people, I am leaving among you that which if you hold on to you shall never go astray: the Book of Allah and my kindred, my household." Imam Tirmidhi states that the same tradition has been narrated by Abu Dharr, Abu Sa`id, Zayd ibn Arqam and Hudhayfah ibn Usayd. FIVE Companions have narrated it, and there is thus absolutely NO doubt about its authenticity. Mullah Ali al-Qari puts it nicely here: Holding firmly onto the Ahl al-Bayt (as in Hadith Thaqalayn) means loving them, defending their rights, acting by their narrations (of the Sunnah) and basing one’s religion upon their words. Mirqat al-Mafatih, Vol. 9, p. 3974 We all know who Mullah Ali al-Qari is of course! He is one of the highest ranking Sunni Imams ever! Shaykh al-Munawi states: The Holy Prophet (pbuh) made the Holy Qur’an and the Ahl al-Bayt his successors and instructed his Ummah to be kind to them both, to place their rights above their own and to hold onto them both in the religion. Fayd al-Qadeer, Vol. 3, p. 20 Shaykh Hasan al-Saqqaf writes: Holding firmly onto the Ahl al-Bayt (as in hadith Thaqalayn) means loving them, defending their rights, copying their manners, following their guidance and conduct, acting by their narrations (of the Sunnah), basing one’s religion upon their opinions, statements and jurisprudence and to prefer them above all others. Sahih Sharh al-Aqidat al-Tahawiyah, p. 653 Ibn al-Athir said: The two (i.e. Qur’an and Ahl al-Bayt) have been called Thaqalayn (i.e. the Two Weighty Things) because holding firmly onto them and acting by their instructions is a heavy (responsibility), and it is said that everything that is weighty is precious. The two have been called Thaqalayn in recognition of their authority and importance. Al-Nihayah fi Gharib al-Hadith, Vol. 1, p. 216 Al-Nawawi said: The scholars said: The two have been called Thaqalayn to show their ealtedness and the greatness of their importance. It has also been said that the word is used to show the heaviness of the (responsibility to) act by their instructions. Sharh Sahih al-Muslim, Vol. 15, p. 180 Al-Zamakhshari states: Jinn and man have been called the Two Weighty Things (i.e. Thaqalaan, as in Qur’an 55:31) because both of them dwell on the earth, and are actually the two most important beings on it. The Qur’an and the itrah have been likened to them because the good health and survival of the religion is dependent upon them, just as the survival of the earth is dependent upon the existence of jinn and man on it.

They shall not separate from each other till they both return to me by the Pool (of Paradise)."

  11. Abolqasem Shakouri Qur'an's answer to Khadim al-Haramain's pardon!(Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques) Al-Saud reports on the development of the Holy Shrines of the Holy Shrine with the slogan "Serving the pilgrims and pilgrims is an honor for us!" It's key. What is the view of the Qur'an about this? Writer: Abul Qasem Shakuri Quran Tebyan The Saudi government has, since a long time, developed heavy projects for the development of the Shrine of the Holy Shrine with the slogan: "Serving pilgrims and pilgrims is a glorious sign for us!" It's key.According to Sheikh Sedis, the head of the General Office of the Holy Sepulcher, the third phase of this project's grand milestone during this hajj season, with the slogan "Serving the pilgrims and pilgrims is an honorary show for us", under the supervision of Khalid al-Faisal, Amir Meca Makmareh and Faisal bin Salman Amir Madinah Mounirheh Will be. (1) The Saudi government launched its first reconstruction project in 1954, and the mosque's capacity for the project increased to 300,000. The second project was conducted during the King Fahd period, and the capacity of this holy place increased from 300 thousand to 630 thousand. According to the mayor of Makkah, the completion of the third construction project in this sacred place will increase its capacity to more than a million people. These designs are not exclusive to the Holy Mosque, but also include Moshairam Moghadas Mena, Meshraal Haram and Arafat. These days, the harsh and serial events of the Hajj season have injured the soul of Islam. From the collapse of the crane's death in the mosque until the combustion in the Pilgrim's Camp, and finally in the wrong direction, closing the ramps leading to the streets of Remyammar, which led to a terrible catastrophe and a mournful catastrophe. These abnormal events cast doubt on the global community's mentality of Saudi Arabia's goodwill and adequacy to hold Hajj ceremonies. Perhaps this is why the Saudi rulers are trying to be honored with the title of "Khadem Al-Harmian"! In the shadow of the massive slogans of special attention to serving the pilgrims and the livelihood of pilgrims, the mind of the international community is diverted from the true truth of the story and casts these incidents as part of the inevitable outcrops of construction projects. Holy Shrines. However, what has happened has made the hypothesis that the Saudi family did not least believe in not only the truth of Islamic rituals and monotheistic hajj prayers as the only unifying practical ritual of the Islamic ummah, but all of these seemingly The welfare is in the direction of the rebelliousness and revival of the abominable traditions of the ancestors, as well as the attraction of more dollars to strengthen the foundations of the pillars of the honorable family of Saudi Arabia, and according to Jalal Al-Ahmad, in the wake of the mith: "This government against Saudi! ... His head is said to be in bad condition for oil supplies. All of these hajjis will be out of dirt, well! Well! There are many views about the origins of the Al Saud family. According to a hypothesis that is based on some of the historical documents approved by Al Saud, the descendants of this family reach the tribe of the Hibis (3). According to another hypothesis, the descendants of this clan will come to each other. (4) Their third view points to Abu Ghabshan, one of the people of the Khuziye tribe. Abu Ghobshan is the one who assigned the Qa'ī's office to drunk in front of a black camel and a wine to Qasī ibn Kalab, the fourth grandfather of the Prophet (PBUH), and from then on, the well-known proverb "My Aqqir Abu Ghabshan" in Arabic made this story. (5) Whether these hypotheses are true or not, what is certain is that the treacherous behavior of the Saudi family during the years of rule in the Hejaz district is exactly the same tradition of Shikr in the early Islamic era, which includes offices such as cloak, cloakroom, curtain and mansion They considered God to be a special social status, and they used it to disgrace others. In the Holy Qur'an, there are at least two verses that indicate that the Al Saud family does not have the privilege of the ministry and the office of the Holy Shrines. One. According to the 34th chapter of the Holy Quran of Mobarakeh Anfal, Firstly, according to the provisions of this verse, it is essential to appoint a guardian to deal with the affairs of the house of God. This necessity can be obtained from the phrase "إن أولیآوه إلا المتقون" (since the verse is in the position of explaining the circumstances of the trustee, not the principle, so the existence of a covenant is assumed.) , the position of the great Tale of the Holy Shrine is only in the affairs of the Piety, as it says: "And as for us," وَمَا لَهُمْ أَلَّا يُعَذِّبَهُمُ اللَّـهُ وَهُمْ يَصُدُّونَ عَنِ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَمَا كَانُوا أَوْلِيَاءَهُ ۚ إِنْ أَوْلِيَاؤُهُ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقُونَ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ﴿٣٤﴾ وَمَا كَانَ صَلَاتُهُمْ عِندَ الْبَيْتِ إِلَّا مُكَاءً وَتَصْدِيَةً ۚ فَذُوقُوا الْعَذَابَ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْفُرُونَ ﴿٣٥﴾ إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّـهِ ۚ فَسَيُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ ۗ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُونَ ﴿﴾.٣٦ " And what did they do that God did not punish them? If the path to the Holy Mosque is closed to the servants of Allah and they are not guardians of it, then its caretakers are not pious, but most people are not aware. Firstly, according to the provisions of this verse, it is essential to appoint a guardian to deal with the affairs of the house of God. This necessity can be obtained from the phrase "إن أولیآوه إلا المتقون" (since the verse is in the position of explaining the circumstances of the trustee, not the principle, so the existence of a covenant is assumed.) Secondly, the infidels considered themselves as unjust to be the custodian of the Masjid al-Haram, and proudly chanted the motto "Nahano valaol-Bait Al-Harm". However, according to the monotheistic viewpoint, the devotee, especially the mosque, should also be Mecca of the Prophet. Therefore, all believers have the duty to purify the holy places, especially the house of God, from the presence of the unpures. Two Allah also considers some of the services, such as the Ka'bah's mansion and water supply, to the hajjis, without the support of faith, to lack credibility and value: "أ جَعَلْتمْ سِقایَةَ الْحاجِّ وَ عِمارَةَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرامِ كَمَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَ الْیَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَ جاهَدَ فی سَبیلِ اللَّهِ لا یَسْتَوونَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَ اللَّه لا یَهْدِی الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمینَ».(19/توبه) "(19 / Repent) [Did you make the watering of the pilgrims and build the mosque al-Haram, like the (act) someone who believed in Allah and on the Day of Resurrection, and in his path Jihad Has it been ?! (These two) are not equal to Allah! And Allah does not guide the group of oppressors! ] This verse, which is famous for its verse, is descending, according to the famous scholar of Sunnis, the ruler of Abu al-Qasim Hasakani: "Sheba and Abbas were proud of each other and were busy talking about Ali Ali Salam, and asked what you were proud of? Abbas said that I have been given a privilege that has no one, and that is the issue of giving water to the pilgrimage of God's house. Shayba said, "I am the repairer of the mosque al-Haram (and the key to the Ka'bah's house)." Ali (as) said: "Although I hate you, I have to say that with this low age I have an honor that you do not have, they asked what honor? He said: "I fought with the sword, so that you will believe in God and the Prophet." Abbas, an angry man, came up and went to the Prophet (peace be upon him) (and complained): Do you not see how Ali speaks to me? The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Call Ali, when he came to the service of the Prophet (PBUH), he said: why did you speak this to your uncle (Abbas)? Ali (AS) said: O Messenger of Allah! If I have upset her, she has been truth-telling, she wants everyone to be upset against speech, and everyone wants to be pleased! Gibreel came down and said, Mohammed! Your Lord will send hello to you, and he will say to them to read these verses. (6) أَ جَعَلْتمْ سِقایَةَ الْحاجِّ وَ عِمارَةَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرامِ كَمَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَ الْیَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَ جاهَدَ فی سَبیلِ اللَّهِ لا یَسْتَوونَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَ اللَّه لا یَهْدِی الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمینَ (19/توبه) الَّذینَ آمَنوا وَ هاجَروا وَ جاهَدوا فی سَبیلِ اللَّهِ بِأَمْوالِهِمْ وَ أَنْفسِهِمْ أَعْظَم دَرَجَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَ أولئِكَ هم الْفائِزونَ (20/توبه) یبَشِّرهمْ رَبّهمْ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِنْه وَ رِضْوانٍ وَ جَنَّاتٍ لَهمْ فیها نَعیمٌ مقیمٌ (توبه/21) Count ye the slaking of a pilgrim's thirst and tendance of the Inviolable Place of Worship as (equal to the worth of) him who believeth in Allah and the Last Day, and striveth in the way of Allah? They are not equal in the sight of Allah. Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk. (19) Those who believe, and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah's way are of much greater worth in Allah's sight. These are they who are triumphant. (20) Their Lord giveth them good tidings of mercy from Him, and acceptance, and Gardens where enduring pleasure will be theirs; (21) At-Tawba Yes These verses are a response to al-Saud's claims that al-Qa'idah's titles and social positions, when there are no merciful purposes behind them, are not the smallest base with God, even if they are a Hajj's fall or a householder of dear Allah's house! subscripts: 1.

  12. Ok, so a kheera, as everyone I know calls it, is when you hold the Quran, recite something in your head, open the Quran on a random page and start reading to find the answer to what you’re looking for. My mum does that as she is a descendant of prophet Muhammad. I grew up with it and have seen things happen that are pretty fair. Never gave it a thought. But every time I’m accused of things like: talking to a boy in 3rd grade, saying that I didn’t use my iPad to text a boy, or now, saying that my little brother was talking to me about something he shouldnt be saying, the Kheera comes of false. Look, I KNOW that what I said happened was absolutely true. There’s no lie in it. Some things are things that shouldn’t even be lied about. Like seriously. But why is it false? Why does the Kheera say that I’m a liar. Mum once took a Khira and it said something extreme about me and my family had beaten me for a week. Over what? A false Kheera? I said it was false and now they’re saying I’m a Khafira for not believe it onthe words of Allah. For some reason, every time it’s about me, it’s a lie. Are Kheeras even to be trusted? Apparently the twelve imams instructed to take Kheeras.
  13. Bad translations of Quran

    I am talking about verses like 41:12 & 67:5in which Quranic Arabic clearly states 'Samaat Dunya' meaning 'sky of this world' or rather 'space of this dunya/material world/known universe'. Yet i see these bad translations in which it is translated as " nearest heaven " or " lowest heaven". Cognitively, it is imperative for us to discern clearly, such as Pickthall, that it refers to " world's heaven ", rather then lowest sky, or whatever it is imprinted in translators' primitive thought patterns
  14. The Claims of Jesus

    Wa salam alaikum! (did I spell that right?) I have a question about which I would love to hear a Muslim perspective. It regards Jesus Christ, a favorite for all of us. In my conversations with Muslims, many say things like "Jesus never claimed to be God." So I would like to know what you (the Muslims on here) would say about this passage from John chapter 8: 54 Jesus answered, “If I want glory for myself, it doesn’t count. But it is my Father who will glorify me. You say, ‘He is our God,’ 55 but you don’t even know him. I know him. If I said otherwise, I would be as great a liar as you! But I do know him and obey him. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced as he looked forward to my coming. He saw it and was glad.” 57 The people said, “You aren’t even fifty years old. How can you say you have seen Abraham?[j]” 58 Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I am![k]” 59 At that point they picked up stones to throw at him. But Jesus was hidden from them and left the Temple. [emphasis mine; for full context, check here] In this passage, we see Jesus expressing several important things. God is his father Jesus is older than Abraham Jesus uses the name of God {"I am"} as a description of himself. The Jewish authorities recognized this as a claim to divinity, as evidenced by their grabbing of stones to kill him. God vindicated this claim by hiding Jesus so he could leave the Temple safely. What are your thoughts about this passage?
  15. I would like to see reliable / trustworthy shia Quran translation site or sites and also for the Prayer times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXLUOrhtxk4 In this video , around 1:00 , a Quraniq verse is shared. In the video two different translation's are shown. When I read Shakir's english translation , it was the same as the non-shia translation int his video. While some said he was maybe a Shia and his tafsir was good. Can we conclude now that that is not the case ? Second on praytime.info wich is also considered as a Shia site for Shia and Sunni muslims , the same Non-shia translation is given about the verse 4:24 What am I missing here ? Does somebody know wich translation source is used or a possible one for the translation in the video ? Thus a shia translation. After reading the following page i think it is a site for shia and sunni muslims , that is why they give different calculation methods for prayer , but I do not know if this " group of muslims " is only shia or not.. http://praytime.info/about.html Your thought's ? Thank you in advance and may Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى grant you succes
  16. Husband

    Salam aleykom! I have A sister who's very very religious. I have never seen A more religious woman who lives in the west. She prays on time, never skip prayer, never had any contact with any guy, she didn't put makeup until she got married (she got married at The age of 23 in iraq). Her husband seemed good and nice and all that but not very religious. So they got married and after that My sister never slept without crying. He was really bad to her. It have been to many problems between The Two of them for me to write it in here. So in The Holy Quran Allah SWT says "Good women are for good men and good men are for good women". I really dont understand this can anyone explain? I mean My sister she is good, very good and she always listens to him and she pleases him and his evil mother. I could never stand out with the pain she has been through. I would've been crazy within an hour. So she is good really so why did she get such a bad husband? And he abused her 2-3 times. They have been married 2 years now. They had A fight 2-3 months ago and she is considering a divorce. Her husband and his parents knows that but still they didn't care. She is staying with me and our family now.
  17. Qur'an on Racism

    وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ خَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافُ أَلْسِنَتِكُمْ وَأَلْوَانِكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِلْعَالِمِينَ And one of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your tongues and colours; most surely there are signs in this for people of knowledge. [Surah 30, verse 22] According to this verse the diversity of colours of people is a good thing - its one of the signs of God. I can imagine a black person 1400 years ago hearing this, having been told his whole life that he was inferior because of the colour of his skin, and now realising that differences in colours is a beautiful thing in Islam, and one of the many sign of Allah swt. It must have been a very liberating thing to grasp.
  18. Salaam What do you know about these questions related to the Quran please: 1. Was the book form compiled during and under the supervision of the Prophet (saw)? 2. Is the Quran in the order as intended by the Prophet (saw)? 3. Why is the Quran not in the order of revelation? 4. Were entire verses revealed at a time, or were segments of a verse revealed on separate occasions but collated into one verse at a later date? (E.g 33:33 first part that talks about the wives revealed in January, second part that talks about purification revealed in July). Just some background info; Discussing the above with a Twelver Shia who believes that there was a committee endorsed by Abu Bakr whom were tasked with compiling the Quran after the Prophet's (saw) demise. And that the Quran was also compiled by Imam Ali, which supposedly had a different order, but this was dismissed by the establishment. This is a popular belief in the Twelver community I've grown up in - as read from the mimbar. I don't personally believe this. IMO, if the Quran hasn't been left by the Prophet (saw) in the intended order then that would mean a distortion in Allah's book which would question ayats such as "Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian" [15:9] and "Falsehood shall not come to it from before it nor from behind it; a revelation from the Wise, the Praised One" [41:42]. Allah refers to the Quran as a book [correct me if I'm wrong]. Why if it wasn't in book form? Then you have hadith Thaqalain where the Prophet (saw) said that he leaves behind the Quran and Ahlulbayt. Rationally it doesn't make sense that the Prophet (saw) would leave without compiling it as it ought to be compiled. So I believe yes for 1 and 2, and for 3 i believe it was left in the best order for mankind to derive benefit, albeit you still have to refer to external sources/Imam to know about the historical event that happened. 4 would be interesting to find out about... Something interesting i heard from Nakshawani (who believes the Quran is in the intended order) is that (with exception to surah Fateha) the first verse of a surah is a continuation of the last verse of a previous surah. E.g 1:7 and 2:1 both talk about guidance. Another theory I've heard is that (for example) the reason why the first revelation "iqra" is at surah number 96, is because it was the 96th surah to be revealed in full. In other words, once all the verses of a Surah were revealed, that's the order it got in terms of chapter number. Your thoughts?
  19. 99 names of Allah - results?

  20. Surah Duha

    S/w, In the recitation of Surah Duha why does everyone completely pronounce the last word of the 3,4,5,8, and 9th aayat Even if there is a 'to' over it? As far as I know, we have to stop(not completely pronounce) the last word if there's a 'to' over it.Am I wrong? @Simra Abbas

  22. Question for Shia brothers

    i have a few questions and hope some knowledgeable brother can answer these. 1. can you explain the shia usul e hadith? in brief for now. especially how you guys check the sanad and matn and reject whatever goes against the quran. 2. how do you know the quran that we have today is the same quran that was revealed to the prophet pbuh? is it just a belief, like christians believe the bible is the true word of god that jesus preached or whatever. or do you have proof that the quran today is the same quran 1438 years ago. and jbtw, this has nothing to do with tahreef, in case anyone goes there. i am coming from a different point of view. just these two for now. a lot more to follow inshaAllah.

Inshallah we'll be adding translations in other languages also. Size of application is very small (< 3.5 MB). It is purely text based, ad free, completely offline with various available customizations. Please do have a look at it and if possible provide required feedbacks. Link to the app is given below https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=quran.salman.saif.com.databaseapplication
