  1. Hi there I want to be a shia or what ever Muslim but I want to ask some questions ...what is imams? And what's the proof? is imams more important the prophets?
  2. The original "Thoughts" thread has become too large and bloated. Here's an extra one to spread things out, so posts don't get buried so quickly. Enjoy!
  3. (bismillah) Dear brothers and sisters. Lately I have noticed that Shiachat and it's members, including me have changed for the worse. Shiachat in itself is just a website, but it is also the biggest shia community. Granted that it is digital, but in todays day and age, it is equally reflective and mirrors what shias believe and how they behave than it does in physical life. Perhaps even more. However, we are in a bad spot here. I am talking about the behavior and conduct of shiachat members, and their lack of understanding the effects of their words. Both how it affects other shias and how it looks in the eyes of our enemies. I am saying shiachat member, because I myself am a member and take equal part in this act. Some points: 1. Issue: We are constantly criticizing the Ulama. Now this in itself is ok, but everyone knows by now that it has gotten way out of hand. We all have different marjas, and we all have different opinions on their actions. But that does not give us the right to cause turmoil in public. Shiachat, is public, and the worst thing we can do is to show the enemies of AhlulBayt that we have such low opinions about each other. It often turns into personal insults and really bad behavior in the name of criticizing. What this does is create hatred towards each other, and nothing.....NOTHING, pleases the wahabis more than this. I have witnessed now from a discussion that i had with a wahabi that we are in bad shape. He specifically pointed out shiachat, and i had nothing to defend our behavior with. It truly broke my spirit, hence me making this thread. 1. Solution: No matter how the Marjas behave and how much we disagree, we must remember we are in the same camp. Marjas are our generals and we are the soldiers. The generals might disagree, and some generals might misbehave. But that does not give us the right to disrupt the peace between ourselves. The only thing we have in this world is Allah, Ahlulbayt and our brothers and sisters in faith. Let us now focus on creating threads that show the unity we have. Let us create threads that are intellectual and smart in purpose. Let us create posts and threads that promote Shia Islam, not tare it down. This is what discomforts the wahabis and whoever is against the Ahlulbayt. This is what causes their despair and strikes fear in their heart, our strong unity. If we happen to create threads that show sings of getting out of hand, it is the responsibility of every shia to respond with respect and behavior that the Ahlulbayt has taught us. Speak gently, and if someone disagrees, then respond respectfully and with dignity. If someone does go out of hand, let's all join in and stop such behavior. I am certain, that when Imam Mahdi looks upon our behavior as of late, and i am sure he does, he is extremely disappointed. There is nothing wrong with holding back and controlling what you want to say. Let us respect each others marjas and ulama, no matter how much we disagree, and show the world that we stand united regardless. I know it might sound cheesy, but this is the way it should be. If you don't believe in the Marja of your fellow brother or sister, at least believe in the brother or sister themselves and love them mainly because they love AhlulBayt. This is the code of Ziyarat Ashura! 2. Issue: Nationalism! Even though we perhaps never mention the nationality that we have a problem with, the undertone is there. What is this nonsense? Since when did Allah or Ahlulbayt love anyone for their passport and place of birth? It is clear as day that we have issues with nationalities, and sometimes it comes off as a joke, but any sane person that understands linguistics and how it is used, will see that there is a nationalistic tension between members. 2. Solution: Again, it is the responsibility of shia members to stop this. Everyone must join in and firstly correct their on behavior, secondly be smart and noticing such things, and finally speak out in a proper manner about it. 3. Issue: The urge to answer. We can see that sometimes someone creates a thread about Yasser Habib, or Nasrullah, or Shirazis, Khamenei, Hezbollah, Iran, Iraq, etc etc. And we have this urge to show our disgust with the article or case that the thread starter is presenting. 3. Solution: Control your urge as much as you can. You don't have to answer negatively to it every time, there is no purpose to it other than starting a big mess. I am not ordering, i am merely asking in the name of Allah and everything that we hold dear, namely the AhlulBayt whom are dearer to us than our parents and our lives that we start changing. Pitch in and be constructive. Our main enemy is wahabis whom are killing Shias day in and day out, and they laugh and point their dirty fingers at us. This is the platform we can use to do our part in showing that no matter how much we disagree on certain issues, we won't let them have the pleasure of seeing it or taking joy from it. I hope you take this into consideration. Wasalam
  4. (bismillah) I was looking for a thread dedicated to Islamic art but couldn't find one so I thought I'd go ahead and make one for all of the ShiaChat artists here. Here are some things I've painted. Feel free to add your own art on here as well (or any cool pieces you find somewhere)!
  5. 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 ?
  6. Oh, my Lord! I am yearning for the Call to pray when I can be close to the Kaabah wall for the day. Who would not wish to be close to the Kaabah wall praying and feeling closer to Allah SWT? Umrah is one such feeling of getting closer to the Lord of the Heavens. The charm of seeing Kaabah for the first time and igniting the inside spiritual love with your Divine Creator in his House is a blessing indeed. Performing the rituals of Umrah is a way to reunite with Allah Almighty and to purge our souls. One of these rituals is shaving or trimming hair after Umrah.

  7. Muslims believe that Quran is the Book of Allah uncovered to PBUH (Prophet Muhammad) that will proceed positively till fulfillment of the world to guide and direct the entire humanity, independent of country, land mass, nation, era, and region. It is not simply a wellspring of identification and direction for the follower additionally benevolence changing. This conviction requested that Muslims should create a dynamic association with it, consider over its verses, interpret it, got the light of its preaching, a conclusion it genuinely and ought to have satisfied the obligations set on them through this book. However, the instance of Muslims is unusual. They don’t even feel the need of perusing this book with perception. They are pleased only by reading it and trusting in. In the result, their connection with Quran has truly been laid up. The focal region of crucial should have been holding by this book and the Sunnah (customs) of the prophet for Muslims is carried by various identities and their books or that they have actually wound up being free to take after their own choice. This situation is not such that we could basically ignore it. Briefly, yet there is a need to analyze, the reason and dispose of the inabilities to think straight concerning this. Generally, individuals believe that the Quran is in Arabic and they don’t know Arabic, it is not required for them to understand the sense and meaning of the Quran. This reason would have been satisfactory if there were no resources available for comprehension its definition and message. Though, what does this reason describe when each kind of asset to appreciate its importance and message is promptly accessible? In modern times guidance is normal and the new routines for printing have really given enormous assets to distribution and diffusion of learning, thus far, as the Quran is concerned its interpretation is quickly accessible in loads of, and discourse in a very couple of, dialects of the world. At that point, what stays away from us to exploit them? Nowadays everybody must do an effort to make up a great career and future; a college peruses a number of books, studies them inside and out and commits a worthy piece of his life for receiving information. How extreme is his undertaking! Everyone is ready to face these issue for common advantages, yet, to deal the upsides of the hereafter none deals with the exploration of the Quran. By taking in the jargon of Quran or its explanation, the ability to comprehend the Book of Allah can be created and when Quran is presented in the Salat, its implications can be observed and its sweet taste can enhance the worship. When a person receives a letter from his dear ones in a language not known to him, makes another person read it keeping in mind the purpose to appreciate it. Likewise, he couldn’t care less to understand the message conveyed by the Allah for his slaves. So, surely you will go to perform Hajj and Umrah right? Yes, we are here to help out by offering affordable umrah packages usa to make your spiritual journey memorized.

  9. Hello, I am a 13 year old girl and recently I accepted Islam. i told my sister who has been muslim since a couple of years back (secret from my mum) and she taught me how to pray and then I took my shahada. My father is from a muslim country but non practising and my mother from a european catholic country. I wanted to tell my mother or ask her about becoming muslim and she did not take it well at all. She became very angry and said that she doesn't want muslim childre, that I won't get a job, and that she will "show me how it is in a real muslim country" also she said the stereotypical lies about women being oppressed in islam and that if I marry a muslim man I will not be able to do anything. Me and my sister tried to argue with her and show her this isn't true and it's just what she has learned from unreliable sources such as tv but she doesn't listen. Then I asked my dad and he said of course I can be muslim, because I am actually already since my father is muslim. And he also told me he and my mother disscussed before their wedding that their children would be able to choose their religion. Today (2 weeks after the first time asking) I tried talking to her again but she just became even more angry and started talking about how being muslim is "agreeing with what is happening in the middle east" and that she doesn't want me to be muslim etc etc. I am very sad about this because nothing me or my sister say to try to change her opinion works, and I don't know what to do anymore. If anybody has an idea then please help because this is very hard for me. I want to be able to practise my religion without being scared that my mother won't accept me and that the family will be torn apart. So if anybody wants to help or has suggestions then please help.
  10. Salam all, I hope these couple of questions can be answered by people from the 4 sheikh schools of thought, especially Hanafi: If a member of Ahlul Sunna stops following or believing in any of the first 3 caliphs, is that person still considered a muslim? Also, if a member of Ahlul Sunna stops following or believeing in Imam Ali or Sayeda Fatima, is that person still considered a muslim? I need to know the opinions of the general sunnis on these questions because the shia position is clear, however, I am lacking knowledge on the sunni opinion.
  11. Hi .. This is a serious issue.. My friend is a pious muslim and has commited homosexuality with a boy and wants to repent now.. My question is ..will his repentence bring him back to islam? Are all his previous deeds ( namaz roza etc ) void as he commited this great sin? Can he still expect jannt after commiting this sin if he at all repents or does he compulsory need to go for hajj to repent for his sin and again lead a life of pious muslim?
  12. There was a question 'Are Shias Muslim? If so what's the evidence?', My humble response was as follows: It is as if one poses questions that Are Sunnis Muslim? Are Catholics and Protestants Christian? Are days and nights parts of time? Do the black and white colors fall in the spectrum of colors? If so what's the evidence? Anyhow, to address the above-mentioned question precisely and to know whether or not Shias are Muslims, one should know in advance what does Muslim literally mean? What does make an individual a Muslim? Or what are the most integral parts of Islamic belief system? A Muslim is he who follows the religion of Islam and surrenders his will to the will of Allah. The most important constituents that make one a Muslim are to bear witness to the Absolute Oneness of Allah, to accept the Prophetic missions of the divine messengers including the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him and his family) as the seal of the Prophets and to confess to the existence of the judgement day. The Shias and Sunnis unanimously accept the very three fundamental principles and thus are entitled Muslims. He who meticulously observes the divine law in his private and public spheres of life and his actions translate his inner feelings and beliefs, is called a practicing and faithful Muslim. One can find a another definition of a Muslim in our Hadith literature that says: الْمُسْلِمُ مَنْ سَلِمَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ مِنْ لِسَانِهِ وَيَدِهِ Meaning that “a Muslim is he who the people are safe from his tongue and hand, i.e. he does not inflict harm to people”. Let me finish it with Allah’s saying: وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِّمَّن دَعَا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, "Indeed, I am of the Muslims." [Fussilat: 33]. Thanks Reference: The Quran. .من لايحضره الفقيه، شیخ صدوق، ج ۴، ص ۳۶۲، ح ۵۷۶۲ .سنن النسائی، المعجم ۴۷- الإیمان، ب ۷-۱۶، ح ٤٩٩٥؛-٥٠٠٨
  13. One has a question that "How would you, as a Muslim man, react if your wife or daughter decided to remove her hijab?" My Humble Response was as follows: On Hijab One Since you have promised to appreciate sincere answers and try to be a better practicing Muslim, the following material is provided: Had we accepted that Allah, the most Beneficent Being, is our Creator, Possessor and all-Knowing, we would have relied on His absolute Wisdom and Will more than on our own intellect. For He is the creator of our intellect as well. His commands will be beneficial in all areas, particularly in the field of legislation; because they stem from pure wisdom and benevolence. The Muslims are called Muslims because they have willingly accepted the Sovereign Authority of Allah. The Quran, the reflecting mirror of the legislative will of Allah, has declared certain objects and actions lawful or unlawful. Thus, every practicing Muslim observes those various legislative pronouncements on a daily basis. One among the obligatory acts is to keep modesty and observe Hijab. Observing Hijab is a must on both man and woman; for they both have their respective Hijab. Man are primarily commanded to lower their sight and avoid gazing at strange women whereas women are ordered to avoid wearing revealing cloths and attires. In terms of laws and regulations, it is to be kept in mind that wherever Allah has an explicit say, the human beings in general and the Muslims in particular, have nothing to say contrary to Allah. For it will run counter to their submission to Allah. Anyhow, neither you, nor your husband or other family members have the right to say something contrary to Allah’s Will and Law. For sure, the form of Hijab is something geographical, cultural and based on human made customs but the very concept of modesty is something divine and rooted in everyone’s primordial nature. The conclusion is that the Muslims are required to obey the divine laws and regulations; for their obedience will serve their worldly interests; leaving aside that they will be rewarded in the hereafter as well. The best way to convince our sisters, daughters and etc. to observe Hijab is to win their satisfaction through intellectual arguments and persuasion. Moreover, defying the Divine Commands will never win one’s prosperity and felicity. Thanks May Allah, Bless Us all to Remain Committed to the Divine Laws and Values.
  14. Assalam o Alaikum! First thing, all shias are not bad nor kaafir.Yes there are people who call themselves shias nd i've listen them nd they believe that (Angel Jibreel) made mistake Allah send jibreel to Ali (r.a) but he goes to Muhammad (SaW). Some of the writers compare Ali (r.a) with Allah. They abuse to ABUBAKAR(R,A) UMER(R.A) USMAAN(R.A) nd many other sahabas. like there speakers promote hate by telling these kind of stories which does not even exist in their books nd totally against the QurAn. But there are true Group of shias.Which is totally different from the other groupof shias.They're true following AhlyBait nd the teaching of Muhammad SAW. Yes they are right in their believe in a good manner. we should Differentiate between those.
  15. Hello brothers and sisters, I have known about a video for quite sometime about a Jewish professor admitting that all prophets were Muslim. It is quite interesting.
  16. I would like to know what should a Muslimah found homosexual text messages in her husband phone ,and she also found out that he engaged in homosexual activity .Do she confront him or should she talk to some one at the masjid about it? Or keep praying to Allah that he stop engaging in these Actives? Or ask Allah to forgive him for his sins and hope the marriage change
  17. Bismillah Assalaamu alaikum One day I was in the store, and while my husband was taking his time picking a birthday card for someone, a nearby bookshelf piqued my interest. I glanced over it--mostly cheesy-looking teen romance novels. But there were also quite a lot of children's coloring books for sale. I thumbed through some of the coloring books. Disney princesses galore. And then the idea struck. Why don't I make a Muslim coloring book so that Muslim parents options aren't limited to scantily clad princesses and other non-Muslim characters when buying coloring books for their kids? So I began. InshaAllah my goal is to have a completed book by the end of next summer (20-25 pages). In the meantime I am selling individual page downloads as I complete them. I've created this blog so that I can have feedback, advice, suggestions, etc. And of course, shameless self-promotion I haven't done any other promotion yet--I wanted to start here on Shiachat because it's more comfortable and I can get some advice. InshaAllah later when I have more pages, I can start branching off to more social media outlets. Download here
  18. Assalam O Alaikum Wa Rehmatullah Wa Barakatuhu, Probably, today its my 9th day on shiachat . I realy found this forum very interesting and helpful. Honestly I learned many things here.

  19. Asalaam 'alaikum. My name is Nūh and I'm a revert living in Richmond, Virginia. I was wondering if there were any other brothers living here. If so, inn sha Allah we could meet up. I don't know any other Muslims in my area, so it's good to keep links and ties with one another just in case we need each other.
  20. Assalam O Alaikum, Wa Rehmatullah, Wa Barakatuhu. Respect the difference of opinion if there is no clear indication of shirk or kufr in it.
  21. attributes

    The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘A servant’s faith in Allah is not complete until he has five attributes in him: 1. Complete reliance upon Allah, 2. Entrusting [his affairs] to Allah, 3. Submission to Allah’s will, 4. Contentment with Allah’s decree, and 5. Patience in Allah’s tribulations. Certainly one who loves for the sake of Allah, hates for the sake of Allah, gives for the sake of Allah, and withholds for the sake of Allah has in fact completed faith.’ [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 10, p. 177, no. 77] ‏اللهم صلي على محمد وال محمد

  23. i think that ISIS is not a big problem for us and for our muslim community the basic problem is started from our muslims because when we research on all Islami Jahadist or terrorist i saw all muslims in them and its mean that we are totaly failed to stop our peoples to kill humanity
  24. Be it Muslims or people belonging to any other religion, they all have been obsessed with the end of the World lately. A People belonging to another religion can only make assumptions at when will be the Judgment Day or what are the Signs of Judgment Day. We as a Muslim have a plus point over non-Muslims that we have been guided by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) regarding the end of the World and its signs. Read More: Judgment Day
