  1. I need some help on writing a letter to Imam Mahdi. I want to mention in it that i want him to come back. I also want to mention that I would like to be one of the 50 companions that are womans. Please reply:) Thanks
  2. This is very puzzling. In fact it is illogical. A martyr is someone who dies for someone else's cause. Because they believe in that cause. Hussain died to become caliph... was this martyrdom or vain egotism? I wonder if dying to become caliph is the central message of shiaism? But on the other hand, hypocritically, shias don't want Sunnis to support caliphs.
  3. I am quite new to shiachat, and recently in some of my threads, I have been asking some of the doubts I have had. Unfortunately some brothers have accused me of being sunni and an advocate of sunnis because of these questions I have asked. I am writing this article to reply to these individuals and show my true stance. Main arguments By Sunnis to Claim wives are ahlulbayt Refutation of those arguments Hadith al-kisa and sunni arguments Refutation of those arguments Doubts which Sunnis give and Answer Conclusion Main arguments By Sunnis to Claim wives are ahlulbayt The main arguments you will see that sunnis use to prove that the wives of prophet are included in the ahlulbayt are surah 11:73 the beginning of the verse 33:33 and. They say that surah 11:73 is addressing the wife of Abraham (as) and that it mentions her as ahlulbayt. "The (angles) said: Do You wonder at Allah’s decree? The grace of Allah and His blessings be upon you, O People of the House!" (11:73). They also might bring ahadith in their books in which the prophet (saw) addresses his wives as ahlulbayt. As for Surah 33:33, they say the start of the verse starts by addressing the wives of the prophet, then the ayat of purification comes. Then after comes a verse again about the wives of the prophet. They conclude that it is clear that this verse was revealed for the wives. Refutation of those arguments As for Surah 11:73, then yes it is addressing Sara, the wife of Abraham (as). But who said it was only her? The verse is addressing Abraham also. Two verses before, it was revealed that Sara was going to have a progeny, Ishaq and then Yaqoub. Then comes this verses in which Allah sends salam on the household. Another reply would be that the argument is flawed. Just because a wife of the prophet is included in ahlulbayt, that does not mean all wives of every prophet are also included as part of their ahlulbayt. The final argument would be that we accept that ones wife is generally considered to be part of the household, but the specific ahlulbayt mentioned in ayat tatheer does not include the wives. This answers why the prophet might have addressed his wives in the general sense of ahlulbayt in their books. As for their argument for surah 33:33, then again it is flawed. Just because the verse starts by addressing the wives, does not mean that the rest does too. For example, in surah 5:3, the start of the verses was revealed early in Islam, but the next part was revealed later during Hajj/ghadir. Also in surah 12:29, "Joseph, overlook this; but you [wife], ask forgiveness for your sin- you have done wrong" the verse starts by addressing yusuf (as), but then changes to the wife. Now when we argue that ayat tatheer in surah 33:33 is not addressing the wives, we usually point out the grammar and how it switches from feminine to masculine and in ayat tatheer it is masculine (AnKUM). Now Sunnis try to argue that it is masculine because the ahlulbayt is a collective noun and it has to be masculine. I believe brother Abbas gave a good reply in 2004 and 2006. http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/25523-ahl-al-bayt-and-ayat-e-tatheer-interpretation/ http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/68297-verse-3333/?page=5 At the end of all this, I think the best possible way to identity who was being addressed in the verse is to go back to the authentic ahadith. It seems like every time we discuss imamah with the sunnis, they suddenly become quranists and don't want to go to their books. However, going to the hadith is the best option as it explains the quran and makes ambiguous things clear.
  4. I remember reading a thread with all the conditions about when to accept a muwathaq hadith from a non-imami. Unfortunately i cannot find it anymore. Can someone please post the link if they find it or if you know the conditions, please post them.
  5. Salaam alaykum I was reading the Qur'an and came across a verse that I didn't quite understand, heres the verse; Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with Him is the Mother of the Book. [13:39] and in the Quranic text is the actual word used for mother, who is this "mother" that it is refering to?
  6. Asalamulaikum, my grandmother from my father's side was a Seyed, does that make my father or me a Seyed as well? Thank you for taking the time to respond.
  7. Salaam everyone, I found an old post about the Bektashis in the Balkans/Turkey. While the article was well written, it seems the person who wrote it was banned and from what I found, was very toxic. I'd like to try to clear some things up and bridge the gap that Bektashis find themselves in. The following is a comment that was posted in reply to the post: Here is my reply: I would like to put my 2 cents in. My father is a convert, who was first very Salafi, after going to school in Pakistan for 6 months to learn Islam. When he traveled to the Balkans he found a more meaningful Islam, and gave his Bay'ah to Sheikh Nazim. He learned more about the Bektashis and became interested in their thought. He took me when I was just becoming a man to Turkey, then met with a Bektashi Baba to become initiated into the order. He is soon to be the Baba of the American chapter. Now my mom's family is very Salafi, and I am very close to them, which in turn led me down a Salafi path. When my father really started teaching and showing me Sufism, I felt awakened in a sense. I learned that nearly all Tariqas trace their spiritual lineage to Imam Ali (as), and I had veneration for my namesake but still considered myself Sunni, following the Hanafi school, the one followed by the Ottomans. I was reading a book written by the founder of the Bektashi Tekke in America, and in it he mentioned constantly the Twelve Imams, so I looked into it more. This eventually led to me calling myself a Shia (although I don't think I've earned that title yet iA). Being around Bektashis and learning about the Tariqa, I can say with no doubt they are Muslim. They profess in the Oneness of God and the Prophethood of Muhammad (PBUH). Bektashis DO NOT dismiss the Salat, or Sawm, or Hajj. They simply do not have them as high on the priority list as others may have them. The belief in personal meditation and Zikr is emphasized much more for Bektashis. I cannot say that they are or are not Shi'a, as I am still an infant in the Jafari Madhhab, and do not know enough about Bektashism. I can say that they are Muslim, and they call themselves Muslim. I can say they have complete love for Rasullulah and the Qur'an. I can say that they believe in the Tawhid of Allah. Final note: the Ismailis should not be ostracized, they have contributed greatly to Islamic thought and theology, and the claims against them are usually baseless and refuted. Please refer to https://ismailignosis.com for a better understanding. Salam brothers and sisters.
  8. can some of the knowledgable people here tell me if this hadith is authentic or not according to the sunni rijal stabdards? حدثنا علي بن حرب الموصلي ، حدثنا زيد بن الحباب ، حدثنا حسين بن واقد ، عن يزيد النحوي ، عن عكرمة عن ابن عباس في قوله : ( إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ) قال : نزلت في نساء النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم خاصة وقال عكرمة : من شاء باهلته أنها نزلت في أزواج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم
  9. Mut'ah Contradictions

    As we know in al kafi it says that the number of mut'a marriages one can have is like that of slaves (meaning there is no limit). However, in Al-Istibsar (p. 693), from the path of Ibn Abi Nasr that he asked Al-Redha: I asked him about a man that is married to a woman and if it is possible to marry her sister as mutah. He said: No. I said: Zurarah narrates from Abi Ja’afar – peace be upon him – that they (mutah wives) are like slave girls and one can marry as much as one likes. He said: No, they are from the four. Al-Tusi also narrates from Mohammad bin Hasan Al-Saffar from Mu’awiyah bin Hakeem from Ali bin Al-Hasan bin Ribat from Abdullah bin Muskan from Ammar Al-Sabati from Abi Abdullah (that he was asked) about mutah, so he said: They are from the four. How can we reconcile these ahadith
  10. as salaam alakim! Is it haram to play cruel jokes on people, people keep doing that to me and others an its getting me mad, they are actually causing fitnah and claiming to be joking, what do shias think.
  11. Famous Hadith on Infalibility

    There is a famous hadith that is commonly said on the pulpits in which imam says that infallibility does not mean they can't commit sin but they won't commit sin because of their taqwa. The imam asks a person to walk down the street naked and the person says no and then the imam says why and the person says because other people will see and then the imam says this is what infallibility is. They can commit sin but won't because they are always conscious of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. What is the source of this hadith and is it authentic?
  12. Scholars and Apostasy

    What are the views of Shia scholars on apostasy. Is someone to be punished for leaving islam generally, or is it only when one leaves islam publicly? Please give sources with scholars such as syed sistani, syed khamanei, and others
  13. Questions About the Verse of Purification

    How does ayat tatheer prove the infallibility of the imams if 'rijs' does not mean sin. Now if we look at the qur'an, no where does it indicated that rijs means sin. Also, in our books it mentions in that the imam said 'rijs' means doubt. How can we prove ayat tatheer proves infallibility if rijs does not mean sin? In surah 8:11, very similar words that are used in ayat tatheer are used for the companions. Does this mean that the companions are infallible. Specifically, the ayat uses 'Ankum' which we often bring up about ayat tatheer to say that they were always purified. Using this logic, does that mean the sahaba were also always purified? Final question is why does the event of kisa have to happen if the ayat was already revealed for the five?
  14. Hadith proving Wives are Ahlulbayt

    Man times sunnis say that ayat tatheer was revealed for the wives. However, we show them the hadith where it was revealed for ahlul kisa. Then they show hadith that try and prove that the verse was revealed for the wives. They argue first with the hadith from ikrimah to ibn abbas which I think is a weak argument because ibn abbas was not present at this event unlike umm salama who said the verse was not revealed for the wives. However, then they bring hadith about umm salama claiming that the verse was revealed for the wives. Can knowledgable brother give the gradings of these chains? حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي حدثنا أبو النضر هاشم بن القاسم حدثنا عبد الحميد يعني ابن بهرام قال حدثني شهر بن حوشب قال سمعت أم سلمة زوج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم حين جاء نعي الحسين بن علي لعنت أهل العراق فقالت: قتلوه قتلهم الله غروه وذلوه لعنهم الله فإني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جاءته فاطمة غدية ببرمة قد صنعت له فيها عصيدة تحمله في طبق لها حتى وضعتها بين يديه فقال لها: أين ابن عمك قالت: هو في البيت قال: فاذهبي فادعيه وائتني بابنيه قالت: فجاءت تقود ابنيها كل واحد منهما بيد وعلي يمشي في أثرهما حتى دخلوا على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فأجلسهما في حجره وجلس علي عن يمينه وجلست فاطمة عن يساره قالت: أم سلمة فاجتبذ من تحتي كساء خيبريا كان بساطا لنا على المنامة في المدينة فلفه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم عليهم جميعا فأخذ بشماله طرفي الكساء وألوى بيده اليمنى إلى ربه عز وجل وقال: اللهم أهلي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي اذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا اللهم أهل بيتي أذهب عنهم الرجس وطهرهم تطهيرا. قلت يا رسول الله ألست من أهلك قال بلى فادخلي في الكساء قالت: فدخلت في الكساء بعد ما قضى دعاءه لابن عمه علي وابنيه وابنته فاطمة رضي الله عنه ..."He sat them (i.e Al-Hasan & Al-Husien) on his lap, and Ali sat on his right, and Fatima sat on his left. Umm Salama said: he pulled a cloak (a Kisa) from under me … and then he [Salah Allah ‘Alaihi wa Salam] wrapped it around them all, taking the edges of the Cloak by his left hand, and pointing with his right hand towards his Lord [Exalted and Glorified is He] and said: “O Allah, remove from them the Rijs (evil deeds and sins, etc.), and purify them with a thorough purification”, three times. She (umm salama) said: [So] I said: O Messenger of Allah, am I not [also] from your Ahl? [So] he said: Yes, Indeed, [you are]. He said: So enter the Kisa (the cloak) [too]. She said: So I entered after he completed his supplication to his cousin Ali, his sons, and his daughter Fatima" في بيتي أنزلت : ? إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا ? قالت : فأرسل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى فاطمة وعلي والحسن والحسين ، فقال : هؤلاء أهل بيتي ، وفي حديث القاضي والسمي : هؤلاء أهلي ، قالت : فقلت : يا رسول الله ! أما أنا من أهل البيت ؟ قال : بلى إن شاء الله تعالى Umm Salmah said: in my house these verses were revealed ” God wants to remove all kinds of uncleanliness from you Ahlul-Bayt and to purify you thoroughly.” So the Prophet PBUH called for Ali and Fatima and Hassan and Hussein and then said: These are Ahlu-Bayti, In the Hadith of al Qadi and al Summi: They are Ahly. So I said: O Messenger of Allah! aren’t I also from your Ahlul-Bayt? He said: yes you are Inshallah. دثنا أبو كريب، قال: ثنا خالد بن مخـلد، قال: ثنا موسى بن يعقوب، قال: ثنـي هاشم بن هاشم بن عتبة بن أبـي وقاص، عن عبد الله بن وهب بن زمعة، قال: أخبرتنـي أمّ سلـمة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم جمع علـياً والـحَسنـين، ثم أدخـلهم تـحت ثوبه، ثم جأر إلـى الله، ثم قال: ” هؤلاء أهل بـيتـي ” ، فقالت أمّ سلـمة: يا رسول الله أدخـلنـي معهم، قال: ” إنَّكِ مِنْ أهْلِـي On authority of Abd Allah bin Wahb bin Zam’ah, Umm Salamah informed me that the Messenger of Allah SAWS assembled Alii and the two Hasan’s (Husayn and Hasan), he brought them under his thawb, then supplicated to Allah and said: “These are the people of my household”. Then Umm Salamah said: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah, bring me in with them’. He said: “Indeed you are from my household
  15. Abu Hanifa liar?

    How can Abu Hanifa be a liar when he narrated the hadith "hasan and husayn are the two masters of the youth of paradise"? And aisha narrated hadith al kisa? The usual response is that the pagan arabs use to also say the virtues of the prophet but i find this argument weak because the pagas arabs only spoke fondly of the prophet before he conveyed revelation but after they called him a liar and magician etc. Thoughts?
  16. Tawassul Question

    Many people have argued that saying ya ali and doing tawassul is shirk because it makes the prophet/imams all hearing and makes them able to hear people all around the world in different languages and so on. This seems like a strong argument against tawassul. Thoughts?

  18. The Narration of Abu Balj

    Salam brothers. The hadith we bring up in sunni books- "ali, you are the wali of every believer after me" is a strong proof to use to show that 'wali' does not mean friend and it has to mean leader because of the usage if 'after me'. However, after looking at the debate on this hadith, i have found that there are 3 chains. 2 of them contain shiees so they reject them but one of them contains no shia, the narration of abu balji. Although, I have seen some try and weaken this hadith because they say abu balj made a mistake and instead of narrating to amr bin maymoon, he meant to say mayoom abu abdillah who is weak and would make the hadith weak. thoughts?
  19. Kheira

    Can someone please do a kheira for me. I am very desperate for one.
  20. I have learned that there are significant differences between the videos I have seen on Shi'a salah as compared to what I have been practicing as a Sunni, following the Shafi'i Madhab. These differences include: combining prayers, prostrating on a Turbah (prayer stone), not saying Ameen after al-Fatiha, the recitation upon standing from Jalsa, different words in Tahhajud, saying SubhanAllah, Al hamdu lillah, la ilaha illAllah and Allahu Akbar 3X in 3rd and 4th rakats instead of al-Fatiha, saying salam once straight ahead instead of to right then left, and 3X Allahu Akbar to end salah. I have similarly recognized differences between the 4 Sunni Madhabs and chose the Shafi'i as it seemed to me the most authentic as being based on Hadith collections.. The questions I have are, "What is the basis for the Shi'a way of offering salah and why is it significantly different?" Is it based on Shi'a collections of hadith or passed down by word of mouth and demonstration? Should we not follow the way that Prophet Muhammad (saaws) prayed as closely as humanly possible?
