  1. Asslamoalaikum, Just to make the Shia leadership and Shia population of an emerging media threat for them in Pakistan. Wesal Tv is creating religious/sectarian hatred against Shia Muslims in Pakistan but do not you worry PEMRA is sleeping.
  2. حوزة الامام الحسين (ع) في وندزر كندا Imam Hussain (A.S.) Hawza in Windsor, Canada *Message is in English and Arabic* بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم تعلن حوزة الإمام الحسين (عليه السلام) عن قبولها لطلاب جدد للعام الدراسي 2017-2018. تدرس في الحوزة مواد مرحلة المقدمات ومرحلة السطوح. تستغرق هاتان المرحلتان ما يقارب عشر سنين. Imam Hussain Hawza would like to inform of its acceptance of new students for the year 2017-2018. The Hawza provides its students with the first two stages of Hawza: Muqadimat (introductory stage) and Sutooh (intermediate stage). Both of these stages require about 10 years to complete. ------------------- مقدمة بالنظر الى ازدياد عدد المسلمين في أمريكا الشمالية وغيرها من البلاد وتكاثر عدد المؤسسات الإسلامية فيها، فقد نشأت حاجة ماسة الى تهيئة العلماء والمبلغين الذين يحسنون التحدث باللغة الانجليزية وغيرها، ولهم معرفة بالخصوصيات الثقافية والحضارية والإجتماعية لبلادهم، مما يؤهلهم للقيام بدورهم في سد الحاجات الدينية والإجتماعية على نحو أفضل. وبالنظر الى وجود رغبة عند الكثيرين بطلب العلوم الدينية، وعدم تمكنهم من الالتحاق بالحوزات العلمية الكبرى في النجف الأشرف وقم المقدسة وغيرها، فقد نشأت الحاجة الى تأسيس حوزة علمية في أمريكا الشمالية توفر لهم فرصة الدراسة وتحقيق رغبتهم في هذه البلاد. INTRODUCTION Due to the increase of Muslims in North America, there is an urgent demand for Islamic scholars. Hundreds of Islamic centers and mosques are in need of clergymen (ulama) to teach and preach them. The demand is more for ulama who speak the language of the country i.e. English and French. All these needs necessitated the establishment of a Hawza in North America to help meet the needs of individuals interested in studying Islam instead of them having to be forced to migrate to Iraq or Iran for their higher religious educational needs. حوزة الإمام الحسين (ع) تأسست حوزة الإمام الحسين (ع) للدراسات الإسلامية عام 2006م وقد تم افتتاحها بمناسبة عيد الغدير الأغر من عام 1426 وهي حوزة علمية تهدف الى تربية وتعليم الراغبين في دراسة العلوم الإسلامية، وهي مع التزامها بالنهج الحوزوي الأصيل المعتمد في الحوزات العلمية في النجف الأشرف وقم المقدسة، تراعي ظروف المكان والزمان وخصوصيات المنتسبين اليها في البلاد الغربية. Imam Hussain Hawza For Islamic & Arabic Studies Imam Hussain Hawza was established in January 2006 and had its opening ceremony on the occasion of Eid al-Ghadeer1426H. I.H.H. provides various Islamic subjects in the Arabic language with the aim of producing graduates (clergymen; ulama) who can provide proper religious education to the North American Muslim community.

  4. My question is regarding the hijri shamsi new year. I know that it starts the same date as hijri qamari but it is based on the moving of the earth in regards to the sun and not the moon. Now my question is what Ahlulbayt have said about celebrating Nawruz and is it incouraged or discouraged?
  5. dream

    AsSalamualaikum to everybody to who are going to read this. So i am a 17 year old Shia Muslim girl with strong beliefs and like any other teen, i too use social networking sites but i dont talk to guys except my childhood friends or my colleagues at highschool. A few months ago i recieved a msg from this unknown guy and i hadnt told him that i was Shia but he figured it out somehow. Then he started talking about dreams and i told him about how i get these isharas in my dreams just like my mother aunts and their parents. And he said that it was the same for him. After sometime, he said that if you dont mind me saying i had this series of dreams regarding you that you are this star and that you belong to me and that there was this guy in his dreams that talks to him and this guy told him that the time is near and that if the guy and i stay together we wont get away from deen and all and that we should plant a seed ( children ) and that one day i will save his life somehow and that to get the qurb to get close to the Lord i have to be with him or unless he will lose his life and my worships will be meaningless and will get lost. Something along these lines. Btw that guy is 24 y/o. I really need some help with this. I told my mother about this and she says that a lot of people are fake nowadays and that we shouldnt trust anybody and thats what i do. I dont feel like i should trust this guy but i dont know because what if its true ? But then Allah loves everybody equally why do i need this person to get close to Allah. Why do i have to keep talking to this na-mehram to stay on the right path when i know that my Lord will never let me go astray. I dont want to believe him and my friends have told me to block him because this dude is creepy. People with knowledge, please help me out. Knowledgeseeker x
  6. I am in South Texas; I originally looked into Islam last year and like all reverts, was flooded with nothing but Sunni information. As I thought about reverting, I decided to look at what Shias believe and since I have done that I have found myself a follower of the Ahlul-Bayt. I don't know any Shia Muslims in my area or even online really. I was wondering if anyone here had some connections to Shias in my area or knows a good Masjid to attend since the only ones I know are Sunni. Thanks.

  9. I am a proud Shia, but I've come across a bump. Almost all the muslims I know are Sunni and I know that Shiaism is correct. I'm just not sure why anymore. Help please? I'm really young, not going to state my age, but under 15.
  10. Hi. This is my second asking here. As the political topic was controversially I expect this topic not be. I am just trying to learn. Is about the difference between Prophet and Imam. As you know sunni tradition take the difference just in a social and political sense. But I read in Henry Corbins' works, and some shia's works, that shiism have a metaphysical view about that. Of course this topic overcomes rational knowledge, but within my limits I would like understand something. Some sufis, like sheij Al Akbar Ibn Arabi, talk about Prophet Muhammad as pure divine light (nur muhammadiyna) which in our world appears as the individual known as Muhammad, but in this essence is not a mere individual. Is not just an historical figure. I saw something similar in shia tradition about Ali. So, from my point of view if we try to overcome the individual and historical understanding about Muhammad and Ali, we can not means them as two individuals. Their difference is not like difference among common people as John and Matheu or Sayd and Samid. Then, it seem like the sufi's view and shia view are the same, or at leas very similar. So, why the status of Muhammad and Ali became a controversial topic? Which is the best source (translated into european language) for to study that? can you recommend me something? Thank you very much. Be well
  11. Salam. At first I want to say thank you for accept me in this forum. I'm trying to get a better understanding about Shia Islam, and have many doubts. This is one: As I understand Ayatollah Khomeini drove a political revolution which was inseparable of spiritual goals. As I read before enter into political arena Khomeini was in Quom studing many things, also philosophy and mystic knowledge ('irfan). And when he became leader of the social and politic transformation of Iran this knowledge guided him. Is right? But, I see in different shia places (websites, blogs, etc) that today the anti western feelings are dominant, and the spiritual goals are not so clear. For example: Some shia people likes cuban revolution (Fidel Castro's revolution) and North Korea government because they are anti west. My problem about that is this: Castro and Kim (North Korea leader) are declared atheistic men. So those revolutions really have nothing to do with a spiritual revolution as Khomeini made. Those are or were materialistic revolutions... then, perhaps those are farest from iran's spirit than many western people. So, I ask you: the politicization of Shia Islam has not diverted (at least in part) the course of revolution? I am asking it with genuine good willing. I'm not trying to deny shia values. Is a real doubt. So, please do not take it as a lack of respect. If can give some light about that I'll be thankful.
  12. Assalamalaikum Brothers and Sisters, I have seen some of Dr.Zakir Naik videos. Is there any other Guy who is better than Zakir Naik ?... Do Shia like Zakir Naik ? Many non-believers have converted to Islam after interacting with Zakir Naik.... Can you suggest me some other Speaker.... The Speaker should be speaking in English...... Thank you

  15. As Salam Alekum, I am working in Dadar West, Mumbai. Can anyone please help me to locate Shia Jama masjid near dadar west. As I would like to offer Namaz-e-Jumma with jamat. Which is the nearst shia jama masjid from Dadar west. (The Ruby Tower). "Maula salamat rakhe har insaan ko jis ke dil me Rasulallah aur ale Rasulallah ki mohabbat ho' Regards
  16. Greetings everyone, I hope you are doing well. Well I need to state that I'm a non-Muslim seeking my path of being a better human and in process of researching all sorts of things (religions, spirituality, occult, etc) I was always attracted to Arabic things, especially taweez (talismans), vefks and similar. What I noticed is that Sufism would fit me as I begun meditating on Allah's names as mantras and they really make my meditations better. I'm also attracted to out-of-body experiences and surfing the Internet I got a feeling that Shia community is far more accepting to personal development (one's path) to Allah and relationship with the Qur'an. Did I conclude wrongly or is this true? I feel absolutely as I said in love with mystical side of Arab/Islamic world that I can't help it but still have a need of having some belief and prayers to God so would you recommend me a Shia/Sufi mixture of self development or? Oh and just to be clear - taweez only and only in case of helping others overcome ill situations both physically, spiritually and morally (and I do believe that the power from them comes from God himself but I don't agree that God is long bearded guy somewhere in the cloud but more as an intelligent (supreme) energy (all attributes with the names of God apply). Any advice and help is appreciated!
  17. Salaams, I'm really interested in attending a short Hawza program (1-3 months?), obviously during the summer (preferably to attend, and not virtual, altho at this point I don't mind either). I know they're offered by UK and Iranian Semiaries, but can't seem to find them online. Anyone have any links, or anything? Thank you! Duas,
  18. Greetings, To begin this, I need to express that I am not a Western leftist, or anyone trying to virtue signal to Muslims about how "open-minded" i am. I believe in God, country, community, family, and honor. I reject the godlessness of modern America, and seek to resemble my ancestors and their faith. I am the descendant of French Huguenot pilgrims that came to America in the early 17th century, American militiamen that fought against the British, and Confederate soldiers that fought against an invading Federal government. I would give my life to fight this godlessness that has taken the West. Now though i consider myself a true patriot, i despise the American government (and mostly all Western governments) that have been the source of our moral decay and separation from God. Since 1861, they have been the only true enemy of Christianity and the freewill of the American people, and now their tyranny has spread throughout the world. I would give my life to fight against this satanic entity without hesitation. I am reaching out to Shias because i see them fighting this same cause, but with remarkable honor. I listen to Ayatollah Khamenei, and Hassan Nasrallah, and their insight and wisdom. The NSA is probably going to have a field day with me after saying this, but i have a great respect for Hezbollah, and the Islamic revolution of Iran. I will not condemn men who are willing to fight and die to protect Christians and innocent civilians against Daesh in Syria and Iraq. No where else in the world can a resistance movement even begin to compare. I cannot deny that i have felt an urge to convert to Shia Islam, but my heart feels empty when i drift from Christ. Even though i know that there is still a great respect for Jesus as a prophet in Islam, my soul cannot abandon Christianity. I am learning more and more about Islam everyday, and gaining more and more respect, but i do have some serious concerns about what is happening with migration and the heinous crimes that are following. Before anyone else, i again condemn these governments for destabilizing these Middle Eastern countries (and i would even go so far as to speculate that these criminals have engineered this to tear apart Europe, making it easier to control). However, this doesn't change the fact that there is now a horrible rape epidemic that is plaguing European women, the terrorist attacks, the migrants assaults, etc. etc., and the fact that in the next hundred years, native Europeans and Christians may be a minority on their own soil. I cannot tolerate this, and it absolutely drives me insane with rage. I want to see Muslims and Christians living together peacefully, but capitulation to Islamic values in Western nations via immigration is invasion, and i believe wholeheartedly European men need to begin to fight back. I know these are not true Muslims, but how else does a Christian fight this invasion without fighting Islamic migration? Of course, there are Muslims who condemn this, but with the undeniable spike in crimes coming from Muslim migrants (especially horrific migrant sex crimes), what is there left to do? To the Muslims reading this, could you ever imagine seeing a Christian-Islamic alliance to fight both the criminal Western governments, the Zionist control of our government, media and their debauchery, but also the criminal migrants assaulting Western women, and disrespecting our nations? There would have to be compromises on both sides, but do you believe there is a possibility for this? And when i say Christians, i don't mean the modern Western Christian. Imagine Christianity could be reformed to where we resemble what we were during the Renaissance up until the 19th century. Men like Jan III Sobieski, and Confederate General Stonewall Jackson. Honorable men who stand against immorality and invasion with great honor, and do so, without fear, and give all credit to God. Even though Islam and Christianity have a horribly brutal and bloody history fighting one another, perhaps i must learn to accept God's will and see this Islamic migration as a potential blessing. The understanding of God and honor has been lost in the West, and with the rise of immoral atheism, we see their replacement. I believe there is great potential for Muslims and Christians to unite and fight against these evils, bringing an end to this horrible violence between our two religions. However, i am not a Muslim, and I do not know if this is possible. To Muslims, if Christians would act as true Christians, do you believe this type of alliance would be possible? I want to end saying i greatly respect true Islam, and I thank you for reading this wall of text, Sincerely, [Name removed by moderator] PS I must convey that though i condemn and despise the actions of the US Federal government and their use of the US military, i will always have a great respect for much of the American military community. Though there is evil among their ranks, many of these men are very honorable. They are men trying to serve their nation, but are horribly abused by the treachery and selfishness of their Generals and government.

  20. Aslaamu-alaikum to all the readers. I have a question that I was asked by a friend recently but got stuck for an answer. His question started with, in the Shia Fiqh, is The act of Hajj (pilgrimage) obligatory (Wajib) on females? To which I replied that Hajj is wajib on every Muslim, from my common sense. HOWEVER, he further asked me to prove if any females in prophets household (more so referring to Lady Khatijah sa, Lady Fatima sa, Lady Zainab sa) performed hajj and asked for prove. I have tried to research but couldn't find any obvious answers or hadees in regards. Has any one got more information to enlighten me about this? Many thanks, Jazakallah

  22. Popular shia website wilayat.net in one of its article on defense of Zurarah (one of the main shia hadith narrator) said: حدثني حمدويه، قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن مسمع كردين أبي سيار، قال : سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول لعن الله بريدا و لعن الله زرارة Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam) said: “May Allah curse Buraydah and may Allah curse Zurarah. Hadith is weak. Reason: "Whatever Muhammad b. Isa narrated exceptionally from the books of Yunus is not reliable. LINK But when same Muhammad bin Isa narrated from same Yunus in criticism on Abu Bakr a.s and Umar a.s, it become thiqah. (9) حدثنا محمد بن عيسى عن يونس عن عبدالصمد عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام قال سمعته يقول ان من ورآء هذه اربعين عين شمس ما بين شمس إلى شمس اربعون عاما فيها خلق كثير ما يعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه وان من وراء قمركم هذا اربعين قمرا مابين قمر إلى قمر مسيرة اربعين يوما فيها خلق كثير مايعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه قد الهموا كما الهمت النحل لعنة الاول والثانى في كل وقت من الاوقات وقد وكل بهم ملائكة متى مالم يلعنوها عذبوا - كتاب بصائر الدرجات للصفار 1/506 From Muhammad ibn 'Isa ibn 'Ubaid (thiqa) from Yunus ibn 'Abd ur-Rahmaan (thiqa) from 'Abd us-Samad ibn Basheer (thiqa) from Abu Ja'far (a.s.). He ('Abd us-Samad) said: "I heard Abu Ja'far (a.s.) saying that: 'Behind this sun are forty such suns, and what is between a sun to another sun is forty years. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). And behind this moon of yours are forty such moons, and what is between a moon to another moon is forty days. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). They have been inspired, just like the Bee has been inspired, to curse the first and the second, all the time. And with them are Angels, who torture them when they do not curse the two." Basaa'er ud-Darajaat of Saffaar (r.a.) 1/506 LINK
  23. Salaam all, I have created this account because I love the helpful feedback and comments I've seen on this forum for months now, because I now am in need of help: To cut a long story short I keep wanting to leave my husband, he is very emotionless and my marriage feels one sided. I come from a Wahhabi and Sunni background, and he introduced me to the teaching of Shia Islam and I reverted within the week. I am young, and I did not have a wedding as my mum being from a Wahhabi background was unhappy with this choice, but my dad supported me, thank god, and we got our Nikah done. Since then, I have become increasingly isolated, I do not have any Muslim friends and I have never spoken to anyone about my marriage issues (besides my husbands- who does not seem to care). I have been pressured into wearing hijab by his family as they would forbid him marrying me, but he does not see any wrong in this and says that it was a good thing. All of these changes started to happen very fast, and I was 21 years old when I fell in love with him, I have been telling myself that things will get better, but nothing does and I am becoming increasingly depressed. I cannot speak to my parents regarding this because of everything we went through to be together, and I once spoke to my mum and she implied that I deserve this for my choice in husband. It has been a struggle and we have been together now for 4 years, he is a [occupation], which I realise is draining him and I am patient and try and be as good as I can, I cook for him his favourite meals, I am not [ethnicity] but have tried to learn some [language] and to learn all his favourite [ethnic] meals, and I try to give him space as best as I can too. All he wants to do is play computer/ video games when he comes home and very rarely spends time with me, I have brought this up many times, but nothing changes, and he seems not to care. Also, I have struggled with the hijab, as I live in a very racist town, but have persisted to wear it for God, the only thing that I hate is the hypocrisy that I'm starting to notice, such as, he pressured me to put it on, but when there is a semi naked lady on the telly he doesn't change the channel or look away? I don't understand, but we have had a few arguments regarding this. Today, I said to him I am very unhappy and am considering a divorce, he didn't seem to care and said go ahead... Problem is, I do actually love him, and don't want a divorce, especially as I know it will make things harder in many ways. Has anyone else gone through anything similar or has any advice or coping strategies please? I'm considering seeking professional help, but the town I live in rather racist and it would be hard to find a therapist that can empathise with a Muslim. Thanks for your time.
  24. Below is the trailer of a new movie called American Hussaini. Movie is to be released on youtube and will be of multiple series.
  25. Salam wa alaykum, brothers and sisters I have had something on my mind for a while and needed a place to talk to more people about it, gain more knowledge about it, and discuss the problems I See. As we all know, the major branches of Islam is Sunni & Shia, I myself am a open minded Muslim who even contemplated god and religion itself at one point. I think that was important because Allah SWT is the one who guided me on to a straighter path with clear answers. Most of us, actually, ALL of us are born and raised following what our fathers believed. I come from a Sunni family so I was taught the Sunni way, Shias as well, Christians as well, Jews as well. Many Christians say Jesus is god because they have not studied their religion but just believe what they were told, believe what their fathers have told them, believe what in their mind seems believable. Same to us Muslims, and every person of every religion. Until that person uses his own brain that Allah has given each of us to use and learn for themselves. Here are a few good examples for my point; SOME sunnis don't like Shias, Because; could be for many reasons, their own father was just a bad person that hates Shias, they went to a school where the teacher looked down on Shias. Etc etc. Also vice versa for Shias. (These are examples, taken place for any group of any party) Another example, some Shias call Imam Ali in the athan, this could be because of many reasons. One person was raised around other Shias who call him in athan, or, I have met a Shia who said Imam Ali was greater than the prophet, maybe he believes Imam Ali deserves it. REGARDLESS OF THE EXAMPLES,, my point is many people follow blindly. **please do not comment on my examples, they are one of 1000 examples of weird things I have seen sunnis and Shias do** -------- My main question by the way is, Do you agree that it is WRONG to call yourself a Sunni or Shia? - one might claim, no because "we are doing it the right way" - one might claim, no because "I don't want to be like those sunnies" "Shias" - one might claim, no because "they don't follow the imams the right way" ---- your duty as a Muslim is not to do anything for other people, but in the end for Allah. i call myself a Muslim and not a Sunni because for one, I am a Muslim Lol the Quran states, the prophet does not like those who separate Islam. By calling myself a Sunni I am HELPING the problem, and if you are a good Muslim, you would comprehend that, you would understand what I am trying to say instead of trying to find an excuse to keep calling yourself Shia or Sunni -- the Imam issues of ahlul bayt are another story, not here to discuss it but for the curious, my bottom line, is that for us to fight about what the imams did for the sake of Islam is dumb what happened back then, only god knows it is not our responsibility to figure it out or fight about it. You will only be talking to hard headed, stubborn people or believe they are right regardless. Facts tell it all. And regardless they did at they did for Islam, and Allah. -- THANK YOU ALL. BY THE WAY, i don't care if you reply, or if you agree or not, or agree but just have to much pride to NOT say it out loud. Even tho it would be for the sake of Allah, not me. I don't care, because I would rather hoped I could install some knowledge and wisdom into my fellow brothers and sisters instead of debating the issue. To each their own to understand, i have done my duty to try and spread my knowledge. There's only so much one can do.
