  1. Salaam everybody: Here's an opportunity to increase blessings throughout this community and throughout the whole world. I remember seeing old threads from years past about salawat pledges, but this thread will be slightly different. The only goal of this thread is to post the salawat as often as we can, and nothing more: اللّهُمّ صَلّ عَلَى مُحَمّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمّدٍ Allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin O Allah: (please do) bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad Rules of this thread: 1. All members are encouraged to post the salawat as often as they like, English or Arabic (but only once per post please) 2. Like as many posts as possible (reciting it yourself out loud while you like the post) 3. No other discussions or statements please, this is purely for salawat only Let's see how long this chain will go, and how much blessing we can all accumulate from posting and liking. More information on the salawat: http://www.duas.org/salwaat.htm I'll get started: Allahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ali Muhammad
  2. (salam) (bismillah) A NICE HADITH: Intercession on Day of Judgment The Holy Prophet (pbuh) (said to Hazrat-e Fatemeh): On the Day of Judgment, you shall intercede for the ladies and I shall intercede for the men; every person who has wept over the tragedy of Husayn (as), we shall take him by the hand and lead him into Paradise. Bihar al‑Anwar vol. 94 pg. 192,
  3. Salaam all, and thank you for participating. I'm wondering the majority opinion concerning the substance of Qareen in the Shia world. From what I read in Quran, it mentions that only those who turn away from God's beneficence will be assigned a Qareen, but we have hadith and literature (from what I know in Sunni world) that the Prophet SAW said we all have qareen including himself. With regard to the hadith of Muhammad, “There is none of you who does not have a companion (qareen) appointed for him from among the jinn.” They said, “Even you?” He said, “Even me, but Allaah helped me against him fa aslama [or fa aslamu], so he only tells me to do that which is good.” There are two well-known views that have been reported. Those who read the phrase as fa aslamu said that it means, “So I am safe [aslamu] from his evil and temptation.” Those who read it as fa aslama said that it means, “The qareen became Muslim [aslama] and became a believer, so he only tells me to do that which is good.” [8] ----- This makes me wonder about the Prophet Muhammads SAW substance as a person/soul comparer to us. It seems to fit alongside a narrative supposing Muhammad was an erring human like the rest of us but just was best representation of a human being the best it can be, rather than a being we can never hope to achieve the same level in terms of piety and belief.
  4. SA, Does anybody know where I can find a link to watch online/buy/download an English subtitled version of the new Iranian movie, Muhammad, the Messenger of God. Cannot seem to find it anywhere- wondering if anyone has had any luck. Been looking forward to watching it. Thanks

  6. SalamAlaykum Brothers and Sister, I hope you are all well I was wondering if someone can tell me where in the Quran it says that the Old and New Testament is Corrupt. Because Muslims say that the Injeel and Torah was changed but where does it say that in the Quran. PLEASE DONT BRING VERSES WHICH TALK ABOUT THE WORDS BEING ALTERED ORALLY, But verses which mention that it was changed in writing. Jazakallah
  7. Asalaam Alaikum wr wb brothers and sisters, Have you come across this narration from Prophet Muhammad sawas? "The Messenger of Allah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã said: Hijaz will be ruled by a man who has the name of an animal (i.e King Fahd (leopard). If you looked at him you will see that he is cross-eyed from far and if you came close to him, you will not see anything wrong with his eyes. A brother called Abdullah will succeed him. Woe unto the Shia from him, he repeated it three times, give me the glad tidings of his death, I will give you the glad tidings of the appearance of the Hujjah" - 250 Signs p.122 Muhammad Ali Tabatabai
  8. I'm a Sunni, I don't know much about Shia, I just want to know, if we both Sunni and Shia are following same God Allah, and Same Prophet Rasoolallah SAW and same religion Islam, why are we fighting in every aspect ? Killing each other in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, etc. Can't we unite under one banner ISLAM, and can't we fight our common Zionist enemy? And why Shias are disrespecting some of the companions of Prophet Muhammad SAW ?
  9. 1) There is literally no evidence that she poisoned him. 2) There is literally no way (save a time machine) to find out whether or not she poisoned him. 3) There are plenty of respectable sources that both Shia and Sunni agree on that show that the prophet loved her and showed her a lot of affection. 4) What purpose does it serve to propagate or start rumors about her without evidence that doesn't exist and is unobtainable? 5) How will this information affect how you practice Islam? If you are Shia you like likely already reject hadiths reported by her, and if you are Sunni you likely accept hadiths reported by her. And if you're trying to decide whether to be shia or sunni based solely off a matter that is unprovable at this point in time, then I think you need to reevaluate. Sorry for not answering your question. My guess would be that I highly doubt it.
  10. Assalamalekum Brothers and Sisters, It's the holy month of Muharram and the great Ashura has already passed. I would like to draw and topic to you and share my findings on the context. Kindly guide me on the issue if required. Fasting on 10th of Muharram is a common practice all over the world. However, I'd like to dissect the issue based on a lecture of Syed Ammar Nakshwani below: 1. Hadith of Fasting in Ashura Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Prophet (ﷺ) came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, "This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "We have more claim over Moses than you." So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day). Sahih Bukhari: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 222 Narrated Abu Musa: The day of 'Ashura' was considered as `Id day by the Jews. So the Prophet (ﷺ) ordered, "I recommend you (Muslims) to fast on this day." Sahih Bukhari: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 223 Narrated Ibn `Abbas: When Allah’s Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) came to Medina, he found the Jews observing the fast on the day of Ashura. They (the Jews) were asked about it and they said: It is the day on which Allaah granted victory to Moses and (his people) Bani Isra'il over the Pharaoh and we observe fast out of gratitude to Him. Upon this the Prophet of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: We have a closer connection with Moses than you have, and he commanded to observe fast on this day. Sahih Muslim: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 2518 Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) arrived in Medina and found the Jews observing fast on the day of 'Ashura. The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to them: What is the (significance) of this day that you observe fast on it? They said: It is the day of great (significance) when Allaah delivered Moses and his people, and drowned the Pharaoh and his people, and Moses observed fast out of gratitude and we also observe it. Upon this the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: We have more right, and we have a closer connection with Moses than you have; so Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) observed fast (on the day of 'Ashura), and gave orders that it should be observed. Sahih Muslim: Book of Fasting, Hadith# 2520 2. Narrators of the Hadith Now let’s dissect this issue in the light of the narrators of the Hadith: Ibn `Abbas: Abd Allah ibn Abbas or ′Abd Allah ibn al-′Abbas otherwise called (Ibn Abbas; Al-Habr; Al-Bahr; The Doctor; The Sea) was born c. 619 CE. He was the son of Al-‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, an uncle of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, and a nephew of the Maymunah bint al-Harith, who later became Muhammad's wife. He was one of Muhammad's cousins and one of the early Qur'an scholars. Since Ibn Abbas was only approx. 3-4 years old (as our Prophet (SAW) migrated on 622 CE), it’s quite ironic that a child of such age experienced the event of Jewish fasting and can explain the whole event such accurately later on. Abu Musa: Abu-Musa Abd-Allah Ibn Qays al-Ash'ari, better known as Abu Musa al-Ashari (d.ca. 662 or 672) was a companion of Muhammad and an important figure in early Islamic history. He was at various times governor of Basra and Kufa and was involved in the early Muslim conquests of Persia. Abu Musa came originally from Zabid, region of Yemen, where his tribe, the Ashar, lived in the pre-Islamic period. He accepted Islam at Mecca prior to the hijra and returned to his native Yemen to propagate the faith. There was no news of him for more than a decade until following the conquest of Khaybar in 628 when he came to Muhammad in Medina with more than fifty converts from Yemen including his two brothers Abu Ruhm and Abu Burdah. Since Abu Musa returned in Khaybar on 628 CE, it can be seen that he was not also present during the Jewish Fasting issue. 3. Meaning of Ashura Although the term Ashura is considered as the 10th of Muharram, but according to the explanation of Arabic language scholar Ali-Ibn Al Athir (1160-1233), the word Ashura has two meanings, an old meaning and a new meaning. Ashura came from ‘Ashrah’ which means ten in Arabic, so according to the old meaning- the 10th day of any month is known as Ashura, and according to the new meaning- after the martyrdom of Hussain bin Ali (AS) the term Ashura refers to 10th day of Muharram month. So if for the sake of argument if we believe that the Jewish fasting was on Ashura, it’s not necessary that it was the 10th of Muharram. 4. Arabic Calendar VS Jewish Calendar It’s quite ironic that Jews of medina were following the Arabic calendar that time, whereas they had their own calendar. It’s assumed that the day they referred that time could be the 10th of Tishri or 15th of Nisan according to the Jewish calendar. 10th of Tishri in Judaism is known as YOM KEPOOR or Ayiam e Kaffara (Year of Attonment) was the date when Moses (AS) came back from mount Sinai and saw his followers worshiping the golden calf. And 15th of Nisan was the date when the Jews were saved from being drowned in Nile. Now let’s peep into the miscalculations of dates for the event: 1. If the event referred to 10th of Tishri, the only year that time when 10th Muharram and 10th Tishri collided, was on 40th Year of Hijrah. So it could not be the Year when Prophet (SAW) entered Medina. 2. If it was 15th of Nisan, then it should have been the 23rd of Ramadan of the Year of Hijrah, not 10th of Muharram. 3. Last but not the least, Prophet (SAW) entered Medina on Rabiul Awwal, not Muharram!! Considering the discussed facts we can conclude that the Hadith of Jewish fasting is a fabrication and should not be let supersede the greatness of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (AS) and his holy family. Jazakullah Khairan.
  11. Pilgrim

    within next hours for the first time in my life, I will be a pilgrim of Ahlulbayts(as) buried in Iraq, first Najaf, the shrine of Imam Ali(as), the Karbala, and this happens on this year that lunar and solar time is the same which means the days are exactly the same days of karbala event, and in the end I will go to Kazemein to visit Imam Kazem(as) and Imam Javad(as). Firstly of all I beg you to forgive me if I did anything wrong to you and I really need your forgiveness. Secondly, despite my own urgent need in prayer and guidance, if anyone wants anything I can be his/her messenger and deliver whatever you wish in the shrines that I visit, with the condition of "If it is beneficial for him.her..." sometimes we ask something that is bad for us, I have to mention you need not to tell me what you want just let me know you have a message and I will tell Imams that you have a message and they will know your message. in the end I have request from you, pray for me in your duas and prayers for seeing the one we are waiting for, I am sure during these days he is there in Karbala specially the shrine of Hazrat Abbas(as). اللهم ارزقنا شفاعت الحسین و شهادت فی سبیله
  12. Salam can you explain the following quote from allamah tabatabai: "The universe is temporal (in constant change and movement) and each particular part of it can become nonexistent. Therefore, it (the particulars) are not the existence that cannot be made nonexistent. This world depends on a reality which cannot be made nonexistent and it is in the light of that reality that the world becomes existent. If that reality did not existent, this world and whatever in it would not have existed. Of course, it does not mean that the reality unites with the thing in a way such that they become one thing. It does not permeate or indwell in them either or that a part of the reality separates and joins things; in fact, it is like light with which dark objects become bright and without which they remain dark." How does cosntant change and movmenet mean that things become non-existence, if I throw a ball, how does the change of ball make stuff go from existence to non-existence. "Therefore, it (the particulars) are not the existence that cannot be made nonexistent." If they can't become non-existant then why did you say particular parts of it become non-existent "This world depends on a reality which cannot be made nonexistent and it is in the light of that reality that the world becomes existent. If that reality did not existent, this world and whatever in it would not have existed." How did he reach that conclusion
  13. 29th Shawal is the birth Anniversary of Hz Abu Talib (as) so this would be an opportune time to ask this question. Before the hijra, was there a greater servant to Islam and the Prophet than Hz Abu Talib as?

  16. This post will seek to prove a great matter, the existence and appearance of the black banners of the East as promised by the Holy Prophet of Allah Muhammad (s) and the Ahlul-Bayt (as), it will also seek to prove the reality of the one who raised them on the blessed Friday of <<<<<23/01/2015>>>>> The Holy Prophet of Allah (s) said: "We (AhlulBayt) are members of a household that Allah has chosen for them the life of the Hereafter over the life of this world. And the members of my household (AhlulBayt) shall suffer a great affliction and they shall be forcefully expelled from their homes after my death. Then there will come a people from the East carrying black flags, and they will ask for some good to be given to them, but they shall be refused service, as such, they will wage war and emerge victorious, and will be offered that which they desired initially, but they will refuse to accept it till they pass it to a man from my family, who emerges to fill the Earth with justice as it has been filled with injustice. So whoever reaches that time, go to them even if crawling over ice/snow, for among them is the vicegerent of Allah, the Mahdi." -Sunan Ibn Majah, v2, Tradition #4082, -Tabari al-Sawa'iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar, Ch. 11, section 1, pp 250-251 The Messenger of Allah (s) said: (…Until black banners are raised from the East. They will ask for the truth/right but they will not be given it, then they will ask for the truth/right but they will not be given it, then they will ask for the truth/right but they will not be given it. So they will fight, so they will be given victory. So whoever realized him from you, or from your descendants, then let him go to the Imam of my Ahlul Bayt, even if crawling on ice, for they are banners of guidance, they will push it to a man from my Ahlul Bayt, his name matches mine, and the name of his father matches the name of my father, so he will rule the earth, so he will fill it with justice and equity as it was filled with oppression and injustice) -Mu’jam Ahadith Al Imam Al Mahdi Volume 1 Page 382 Thawban said that The Prophet of Allah (s) said: “The black banners come from the east, as if their hearts are pieces of iron, whoever hears about them then go to them and give allegiance to them, even if crawling over ice.” -Bihar Al-Anwar Volume 51, page 84, Ghayat Al-Maram v7 p104 From Thawban, he said: The Messenger of Allah s.a.w.w said: “Three will be killed at your treasures all of them are the son of a Khaleefa (Caliph/Successor) and then it will not be to anyone of them. And then black banners from the East will emerge and will fight them with a fighting not a folk will fight like it, and then he mentioned a youth and said: 'If you see him pledge allegiance to him, for he is the successor, the Mahdi” -Bisharat Al-Islam page 30 The Messenger of Allah (s) said: “If you saw the Black Banners came out from Khurasan (east) then go to them even if crawling on ice, for they have the Successor of Allah The Mahdi with them” -Sayyed Ibn Tawous Alhasani page 52 So what is the description of this blessed black banner which appears from the east? Ubayed ibn Karb said: I heard the Prince of the Believers Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) say: "Verily we, AhlulBayt have a banner, whoever goes before it has renegaded, whoever is late to it has perished, and whoever follows it has followed us, it is written upon it Allegiance is to Allah. -Book of 250 Signs, p15 "Allegiance is to Allah" is "Al Baya'tu Lillah" in Arabic. So far, we know the banner which shall have among it the promised Mahdi, it comes from the east, and it is black banner, and it has written upon it "Al Baya'tu Lillah" Let's continue to a famous hadith, The Holy Prophet of Allah Muhammad (s) said: Hejaz (Saudi Arabia) will be ruled by a man whose name is the name of an animal, when you see him from a distance, you would think he has a lazy eye, and if you get close to him, you do not see anything wrong in his eyes. He will be succeeded by a brother of his, named Abdullah. Woe to our Shia (followers) from him! Woe to our Shia (followers) from him! Woe to our Shia (followers) from him! - he repeated it three times - Give me the good news of his death, and I shall give you the good news of the appearance of the Hujjah (Imam al Mahdi). -Book of Two Hundred and Fifty Signs, sign number 122 Hijaz (Saudi Arabia) will be ruled by a man whose name is the name of an animal, The king with the name of animal - is King Fahad. Fahad means Cheetah/Leopard. When you see him from a distance, you would think he has a lazy eye, and if you get close to him, you do not see anything (wrong) in his eyes. Eyes appear normal from near Abnormal from far He will be succeeded by a brother of his, named Abdullah. Give me the good news of his death, and I shall give you the good news of the appearance of the Hujjah (Imam al Mahdi a.s). King Abdullah's death = Appearance of Imam al Mahdi a.s. On the night of the death of king Abdullah (la) twelve men came forth and claimed that they have met Imam al Mahdi Muhammad ibn al Hasan a.s Here is the link to the video made by one of those 12 men on that night giving the glad tidings (23/01/15) (in Arabic) (https://www.youtubedotcom/watch?v=4bsCD2dWaHI) With those twelve men was their Imam and master, the son and messenger and successor of Imam al Mahdi Muhammad ibn al Hasan, who is Ahmad al Hassan a.s. And on that night the blessed banner of the AhlulBayt a.s was raised "The Qaim shall not rise until twelve men come forth and say that they have seen the Qa'im, but the people shall belie them." -Al Ghaibah al Nu'mani p285 More undeniable proofs (https://www.youtubedotcom/watch?v=qphI255e7h0) These narrations are absolute narrations which cannot be claimed except by its rightful companions or else there is no wisdom in giving the glad tidings if it can be claimed by other than its rightful companion. Just as the Will of the Messenger of Allah (s) on the night of his death to Imam Ali a.s. it cannot be claimed except by its rightful companion. Al-Asbagh ibn Nabata said: "I went to the Commander of the Believers (as), I found him drawing lines on the ground, so I said to him: 'O Commander of the believers, why do I see you contemplating and drawing lines on the ground? Do you desire it? So he said: “By Allah, I have never desired it nor have i ever desired the world. Rather, I was thinking about a man who will be born from the eleventh from my sons, he is the Mahdi who will fill this world with justice and equity just as it was filled with oppression and injustice. There will be a confusion and an absence for him, people will go astray in it, and some others will be guided in it” So I said? How long will that confusion and absence be? So he (as) said: “Six days, or six months, or six years" -Ghaybat AlToosi p 165 hadith 127 Who is the 11th from Imam Ali’s a.s sons? The 11th son is Imam Mahdi (as). So who will be born from the 11th son/Imam Mahdi (as)?? Imam Ahmed Al Hassan a.s. The Holy Prophet of Allah (s) said: “O Ali, you are from me and I am from you, and you are my brother and vizier, so if i die there will appear to you the hatred in the chests of the people. And there will be after me a silent disastrous Fitna, every inner and hidden (every hypocrite) will fall in it. And that is when your shia lose the fifth from the seventh of your sons. The inhabitants of the heavens and the earth will grieve for his loss! How many believing men and women will be grievous and anxious and confused when he is lost! -Bihar al anwar v26 p350, Ghayat Al Maram v1 p212 Who is “the fifth from the sons of the seventh” of the sons of Imam Ali (as)? First let’s count and see who is the 7th son, then we can see who is the 5th from the 7th. first son - Imam al Hasan (as) second - Imam al Husayn (as) third - Imam Ali al Sajjad (as) fourth - Imam Muhammad al Baqir (as) fifth - Imam Ja'far al Sadiq (as) sixth - Imam Musa al Kathim (as) seventh - Imam Ali al Ridha (as) peace be upon them all So the 7th son is Imam al Ridha (as) Now let’s see who the 5th son from Imam al Ridha (as) is first son is Imam Muhammad al Jawwad (as) second son is Imam Ali al Hadi (as) third son is Imam al Hasan al Askari (as) fourth son is Imam Muhammad al Mahdi (as) fifth son is Imam Ahmad al Hassan (the son and messenger and successor of Imam al Mahdi, the promised Yamani, who shall be supported by the Khurasani and Shuayb ibn Saleh) So what is the condition of Ahmad al Hassan (as) during this silence? “…Then The Messenger of Allah sawas turned to us, raising his voice, saying: Be cautious when the fifth from the seventh of my sons is lost. So I said: O Messenger of Allah, so what would this absence be? So he said: Silence, until Allah gives him permission to emerge…” -Al-Bihar 36/333, Ithbat Al-Hudat 1/589, The Encyclopedia of the Hadiths of Imam Mahdi `63, 164 And it is a known fact that Imam Ahmed al Hassan (as) entered into an absence after being betrayed by some hypocrites, and he returned a year and a half before the death of king Abdullah of Hejaz l.a, Mid 2007 to Mid 2013 “So he (as) said: “Six days, or six months, or six years" Imam Al-Baqir (as) said: “The companion of this matter will go into an occultation in some of these passes” and he pointed out with his hand to the direction of Thee-Towa. Then he said: “Until before his rising, the Mawla [Imam Ahmed], who was with him will come forth until he meets some of his companions and ask: ‘How many of you are there?’ They will reply: ‘We are forty people.’ Then he will ask: ‘What will you do, if you see your Companion [Imam al Mahdi]’ They will reply: ‘By Allah, if he goes from here and takes refuge at any mountain, we will also be with him.’ Then he [Imam Ahmed] will come to them and say: ‘Point to ten of your leaders or the best of you,’ then they point to them for him, so he takes them and brings them to their Companion (Imam al Mahdi). He will promise them about the coming night..” - Ghaibat Al-Noa'mani, P. 187, Tafsir Al-Ayashy, V. 2, P. 56, Bihar Al-Anwar, V. 52, P. 341, Mu'jam Ahadith Al-Imam Al-Mahdi, V. 5, P. 2. And here brothers and sisters, is the story, told by one of the 12 men who met Imam al Mahdi Muhammad ibn al Hasan a.s on the night of king Abdullah's death, Keep the above hadith in mind. This is a question which was sent to one of the 12 Chiefs a.s who met Imam al Mahdi Muhammad ibn al Hasan a.s "Peace of Allah be upon you O companions of the Qaim, peace be upon you all, O purified twelve. – Was the situation like it was mentioned in the book ” An advice to the students of the Academic Hawzas” that you were forty men then Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) came to you and commanded you to point to the best ten of you then he took you to meet Imam Al-Mahdi (as)? – Was Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) already with you a while ago after his absence ended? Or he appeared to you for the first time on the day of King Abdullah’s death? Meaning if the absence started in 2008, did it end in the end of 2014? Answer: In the Name of Allah, The Abundantly Merciful, The Intensely Merciful All praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds O Allah send Your prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdies Peace, Mercy, and Blessings of Allah be upon you the believing Ansar of Allah in the easts of the Earth and its wests. I, and I seek refuge from the word of the I, am your servant Aba Gibra’eel (Aba Gabriel) one of the twelve men who have been honored to meet the Hujjah of Allah (Imam Muhammad son of Al-Hassan Al-Askari) pbuh. I will mention to you the story of the meeting, and I will make sure not to mention some of the details because of the sensitivity of the matter. May Allah grant you success to all which is good. We are forty two men, and with (Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan) (pbuh) we become forty three men. Among us is he who believes in this blessed call before hearing about it, and among us is he who believes in it since the first day he heard about it, and among us is he who believes not so long ago. The Sayyed the Father Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) has gathered us from several countries, among which are Arab, Islamic, Western, and Asian countries, until one year and a half ago we gathered in one place. And Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) was with us and among us. We had a place where all of us would gather at a certain time everyday, until after the Fajr prayer each of us would go to their job which the Father Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) has given to him and charged him with. Until that blessed promised day came and we heard about the destruction of the criminal (Abdullah the king of Hijaz). As usual we gathered in that blessed place which is fortified by Allah swt. The Father (pbuh) had been absent from us for some nights before this night, and we were missing him very much. One hour before the Fajr prayer, the courageous lion of Allah came forth to us with his glory which seizes the hearts and eyesights, him and two of his companions from your purified brothers who are used to accompanying Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) everywhere and wherever he goes. And he (pbuh) entered upon us while he was smiling, so he said: ”Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His blessings”. So everyone responded to the greetings with yearning and longing. So he (pbuh) said: “How are you O my sons, inshaAllah you are all well”. So the brothers said “All praises belong to Allah O my father, we are well and all praises belong to Allah”. So he (pbuh) said: “Did the news of the destruction of the tyrant Abdullah, may Allah curse him, reach you?” So they said: “Yes”. So he (pbuh) said: “This is the day of Allah. This is the promise of Allah The Almighty for His righteous sincere servants”. Then he (pbuh) said: “What will you do if you see Imam Al-Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan Al-Askari may my soul be sacrificed for him?” So they said: “By Allah by Allah if he goes from here and takes refuge at any mountain we will go with him”. So The Father (pbuh) said: “By Allah you have said the truth, for Allah did not create Ansar (supporters) on the Face of Earth like you, neither before you nor after you.” Then he said: “Now I want you to point at the best of you and to choose ten to meet Imam Al-Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan Al-Askari (pbuh)”. Here everyone was keen to choose their brothers, and it didn’t cross the mind of any of them to choose himself or to think that he is better than his brother. So everyone was telling everyone “I choose you”. And the Father (pbuh) was looking to them and smiling pbuh. Then he said: “Send prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis”. So everyone sent prayers upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad. Then the Father (pbuh) said again “I swear by Allah The High The Great that Allah never created Ansar like you, you are the best Ansar on the face of the Earth, there never came Ansar like you, and there will never come Ansar like you, with this sincerity, loyalty, and faith in Allah The Almighty”. Then he praised Allah and thanked Him. Then he became silent for some seconds, then he said: “You must choose ten”. So he (pbuh) said: “Form ten groups, each group has four believers, and let every group composed of four to choose one believer to represent them”. So the believers did as the Father (pbuh) requested. So each group chose a person. So the total number of the chosen ones were ten believers. So the Father (pbuh) said: “The Fajr prayer time has come”, so he pointed to one of the brothers and told him, “Rise and make the Athan”. So he made the Athan and we prayed in congregation by the leadership of the Sayyed the Father (pbuh). So we went forth twelve men and with us was the Sayyed the Father (pbuh) and we were filled with longing and yearning and excitement and a heart which was beating so fast like the speed of the lightning and a body which was shaking like a tree on a stormy winter day, because of the greatness of the matter. So we arrived to the place which Imam Al-Mahdi (Muhammad son of Al-Hassan Al-Askari) (pbuh) was at. So we met him (pbuh) and after the greetings and after a long conversation which took more than two and a half hours, he (pbuh) directed us and informed us of unseen matters which will take place, and events worldwide, with the most accurate details. And he (pbuh) informed us of what will happen in the world and in accurate details, from them are Iraq, Egypt, Turkey, Iran, Japan, Italy, the greater Devil America may Allah curse it, North Korea, South Korea, Qatar, Jordan, and in the most accurate details, even with mentioning the day and the hour. And we take this occasion in our challenge with the Sameri and the Calf may Allah curse them the companions of the alleged Office which is falsely and by fraud attributed to Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) while he is innocent of them, and the cursed companion of the page, and the cursed companion of the voice, to bring forth one unseen matter (one future event) and to give us all the details with mentioning the day on which it will take place. And we will do them same; we will give you one matter of the unseen which no one has ever heard of and no one will hear of, and no one has ever talked about it, you will hear it for the first time from us, and it will take place inshaAllah, and we will give you the most accurate details with mentioning the day, the hour, and the minute. So if you are truthful like you claim, then accept our challenge to you. Otherwise, you are liars, hypocrites, immoral, corrupt, and disbelievers, and at that time nothing will remain as a cure except for the sword to you, and at that time, I swear by Allah The High The Great, we will not have mercy upon you, and we will crush and destroy your nests, the nests of misguidance, disbelief, lying and slandering against Ahlul Bayt (pbuh), and at that time no regret nor repentance will benefit you."
  17. “I have only been sent to perfect good manners (/moralities)” (Bihar al-anwar, vol: 68, p: 382) This is a famous hadith (narration) from the holy prophet of Islam. I think this is one of the key concepts that Islamic teachings should be understood according to it. The hadith shows what is the goal of prophet hood, what is the aim of inviting people to Islam. In contrary to some groups that try to present a vicious and violent image of Islam, this is a narration from the prophet of Islam that clearly expresses his goal which is morality and ethics. When we consider this narration with a verse of Quran, it makes more sense. In Quran, God says: “Certainly Allah conferred a benefit upon the believers when He raised among them an Apostle from among themselves, reciting to them His communications and purifying them, and teaching them the Book and the wisdom, although before that they were surely in manifest error.” (Al ‘imran: 164) These two quotations, completes a picture of the prophet of Islam. He was sent to people to help them to be better persons. Guide them to morality and spirituality. His aim was to build a society based on justice and mutual respect. And that is how we should think about him and his teachings. What is your idea?
  18. Can anyone besides Allah have the power of creation even by the will of Allah ? Is this what is meant by wilayat-e takwini ? I consider such belief as shirk
  19. Salaam everyone, I uh have been trying to reconcile something. If Adnan was the ancestor of the Quraysh and the Prophet SAW, and he existed sometime 562 BC, after Nebuchadnezzar II took out the Qedar (tribe of Ishmael pbuh, and ancestor to Quraysh purportedl) Kingdom.... and the Prophet SAW himself was born in 570 AD... This would mean there's roughly 1100+ years between them. And the Prophet SAW says his descendants are 20/21 men before from himself, all the way to Adnan. So.. There's a small contention here. This would mean on the AVERAGE age of each and every one of the prophet's forefathers at conception of the next descendant, would be 54 years old......... I'm sure some of you already realize that this is problematic. Most people have kids between the ages 20 - 30 years old. Especially in ancient culture/traditions, wives may have had kids as soon as they hit 17/18 or even younger. The Prophet SAW himself had his first child in his 30's. This is really hard to reconcile as plausible guys. It seems highly unlikely that this claim is true. Unless the first 10 or so ancestors had their patrilineal main guy at 60/70 years old, then the last 10 guys had their kids at 30/40 years old.... This wouldn't make too much sense (even that example is highly dubious). The average survival age for males back then... as you all may already know.. was 50's, 60's if one was lucky. Logically, it makes sense why culturally we have kids from a very young age: Because they didn't live too long during those times. Can anyone provide or offer some insight who is knowledgeable on the subject of the Lineages and Pre-Islamic Arabia?
  20. I have heard that the Prophet Muhammad had a night journey to Jerusalem. Where he met Jesus, Abraham, Moses, and John the Baptist and led them in prayer. How did the prophet Muhammad know that he was in Jerusalem? And, also how did he know who these other prophets were? Did he ask them their names, or did they address themselves?
  21. I just wanted to see fellow shia's view on prophet Ibrahim (a.s) and how he corresponds on the greatest creation list. I personally think he is the second best creation and that if it wasn't for him, Allah would not have made among his offspring the 12 imams were it not for his dua.
  22. https://www.quora.com/When-converting-to-Islam-how-did-you-choose-between-Shia-and-Sunni-Islam/answer/Majed-Jamaleddine/comment/15503190?__snids__=1496838197&__nsrc__=1&__filter__=all From Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa, from Al-Husain bin Saeed, from Muhammad bin Abi Umair, from Abi Ayub Ibrahim bin Usman Al-Khazaz, from Aban bin Taghlub who said: “I was in the presence of Abi Abdillah (Imam asSadiq), when a man from Yemen came up to Him.The Imam said to him, “O Yemeni brother, are there scholars among you?”He said, “Yes”.The Imam said, “What do your scholars achieve from their knowledge?”He said, “He travels in one night the travel distance of two months of the flight of the bird and the effects would remain.”Abi Abdillah said, “The scholar from Medina [referring to himself] is more knowledgeable then your scholars.”He said, “What does the scholar of Medina achieve from his knowledge?”The Imam said, ” He travels in one hour of the day, the travel distance of a year’s travel of the sun, to the extent that he cuts through twelve thousand worlds the like of this world of yours whose inhabitants are not aware that Allah created Adam (as) or Iblees”.He said, “They recognise You?”The Imam said, “Yes. There is no obligation upon them except for Our Wilayah and the keeping away from Our enemies.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 15]-All narrators are trustworthy. Hadees is Saheeh.-There are more narrations with the same meaning, hence making the Matn “Tawattur” (frequently narrated)Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Razi Al-Jaamoorani, from Ismail bin Moosa from his father, from his grandfather, from Abd Al-Samad bin Ali who said :A man came up to Ali bin Husain (as). Ali bin Husain (as) said to him, “Who are you?”.The man said, “I am an astrologer.” The Imam said, “So you are a fortune-teller.” He then looked at him and then said, “Shall I show you a man who since the time you have come to us, moved through 14 worlds, with each world being 3 times bigger than this world, without having moved from his place?”The man said, “Who is He?”The Imam said, “it is I, and if I wish, I can inform you what you ate and what you have stored in your house.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 13]Imam Jafar Sadiq narrates:“We have been given the knowledge of the beginning and the end.”A person from the Imams (as) companions said: “May I be your ransom. Do you have Knowledge of the unseen (Ilm e Ghaib)?”Imam(as) replied:”Woe unto you. I know what is in the loins of men and womb of women. Woe unto you all. Open us your heart and see with your eyes and accept with your hearts. We are the proof of Allah in his creations. And none can accept this except all those believers whos hearts are as strong as the mount of Tahama and by the will of Allah.”[Source: Bihar Al Anwar Vol.26]And so on and so forth. I am sure you would know many more than I know.Edit: Just got sent this video. Do you guys really believe this stuff? Which Muslim does?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... I was arguing with a sunni and he presented these arguments, can a shia please refute these and see where I went wrong with my arguments
  23. Asalamualaikum, I heard that there is a verse in the quran where certain people are given the qadr of Allah. Before it use to be Rasullulah, but because there is no prophet then there must be an infallible guide to recieve the qadr of Allah in present day. Therefore there must always be a hujja on this earth. Does anyone know the reference to this verse? Also can one provide an article on the verses alluding to ALL 12 imams. Not just Imam Ali(as) or Imam Mahdi(as)
