  1. Salam all, i am new here. i am a muslim, a "sunni" so to speak, but have a few differences with the majority found nowadays. i recently made an account on a sunni forum but was banned soon and the reason told to me by the mods was that i am a closet shia and i should take my "propaganda" to a shia forum, while all i did was state facts and ask questions in a very respectful manner. i mention this only to make clear that i am not someone who follows the herd blindly, but rather am a student of knowledge and always look for the truth. anyway, i am here to find some answers and to give some answers inshaAllah. but the former shall be done in a different post. for now, i welcome any questions or "Challenges" the shia brothers have about/for the "ahlussunnah" and i will try to answer them to the best of my ability.
  2. Sunni and Shia marriage

    Salam W Alaykum I am in a very confusing situation right now.. I have been stressing too much about it. I am originally a Shia Lebanese and live abroad with my family and have been doing it ever since I was kid. I always had in mind that I would marry a Lebanese girl since Lebanese suffer of extreme nationalism. For the past 3 months I have been dating an Iraqi girl who I adore and admire. I enjoy every second with her. When we first started talking she told me that her father is Sunni and her mother is Shia but she has very little knowledge of both, so she told me doesn't count herself as either. When we would go out, we would kiss (I know, haram) but I kissed her and then told her that what we are doing is wrong and we should do Mut'a (she was married before and I asked a Sheikh about it and he told me it is permissible). She was reacted in a negative way and didn't like the idea because in her point of view, kissing and such are not haram because we live in a different era etc. But I explained to her that that is not the way I see it and so on. After about 1.5 month I managed to convince her to do Mut'a and we are both happy. My goal with this girl is to marry her but right now she tells me she is more into Sunni because of her father (he is not even living with her) and her view on Shia is bit weird because she has only a couple of friends of Shia and they were bad people and her mother didn't teach her a lot. Right now, we are in a critical situation where I told her that if I want to marry her, I am expecting her to pray, eat halal food only and fast and I would prefer if she would be Shia and I told her that I could prove to her why Shia is wrong using Sunni and Shia hadith. But she is very upset and I know her point of view on religion is a little bit European since she grew up here. But I am willing to sacrifice a lot to change her mind and we are almost on the edge of breakup because of this. Please what are your views on this ? I am really stressing about this and in my opinion, if she is Sunni but loves Ahlul Bayt I would not have a lot of problems with it but I would still worry about my children since I prefer them to be Shia.. Please, ANY ADVICE/OPINIONS WOULD BE EXTREMELY APPRECIATED. AC
  3. Asalam Aleikum brothers and sisters. I've been using shiachat.com many times in the past to learn about all kinds of things and experiences in Islam and today I'm writing my first topic to ask for advice and help from everyone here. I'm a Shia Muslim living in a non-Islamic country with very few Muslims and barely any Shia Muslims. I've been search for a potential wife for a few years with no luck. In the past year I've had a Sunni Muslim sister freind and we both have been helping each other out in this non-Islamic country and have been getting along very well because we both have many common interests and backgrounds (we both have mixed cultures). Both me and her have shared with each other that we are in search of a soul mate but neither of us has asked the other about a potential marrige but she does seem to have implied it by tell me about her wishing to get married many times. Now I know there are shia brothers who have married sunni sisters but I don't plan on doing that. But I feel that if I'm able to talk to her about wanting to get married and tell her that I would be willing to do that if she would look into the Shia Mazhab and potentially become a Shia Muslim. But I'm afraid of her reaction, I'm not sure how open she is to other Mazhabs and wheather she would be willing to look into and learn about the Shia Mazhab. I don't know how I should suggest this idea to her without her feeling that I'm enforcing something on her. I want to convey to her that I'm willing to look into getting married and willing to listen to her requests too if she is willing to look into my Mazhab. So here I am asking you brothers and sisters for your advice and experiences in this subject. Thanks in advance to everyone for giving your time to read my request.
  4. Salam, I will try and be quick. These are JUST three points that made me leave this religion and became a Muslim, trust me there are many. The only reason I even bother to write this is because I used to be one of you. Blindly following these mawlanas, but alhamdullialah Allah guided me and without a doubt there are many Shia out there that don’t know the truth about their religion. Inshallah Allah will guide them. BTW I can provide scans for all the below. The Quran. Firstly, the Quran is the best guide for any Shia as it completely destroys every aspect of their aqeedah. Anyway, I was shocked by the Shia scholars and tahreef! What shocked me the most about this is the fact that these Shia scholars are not only still considered Muslims but are highly praised in the howzat. For example, Majlisi in his “Miratul uqul” (3/31) he said: و الأخبار من طريق الخاصة و العامة في النقص و التغيير متواترة، و العقل يحكم بأنه إذ كان القرآن متفرقا منتشرا عند الناس، و تصدي غير المعصوم لجمعه يمتنع عادة أن يكون جمعه كاملا موافقا للواقع، لكن لا ريب في أن الناس مكلفون بالعمل بما في المصاحف و تلاوته حتى يظهر القائم عليه السلام، و هذا معلوم متواتر من طريق أهل البيت عليهم السلام و أكثر أخبار هذا الباب مما يدل على النقص و التغيير و سيأتي كثير منها في الأبواب‏ ” and traditions from the ways of the elite (i.e Shia) and the public (i.e Sunnah) regarding omission and change are mutawatir, and logic dectates that if the Quran was seperated and spread amongst people, then if a fallible has tried to collect it, then it is highly unlikely that its collection would be complete and in compliance with reality. However, there is no doubt that people are obliged to work with what is included in the Mushafs and to read it until Al-Qayem appears, and this is known through numersous traditions (mutawatir) from the way of Ahlul Bayt and most traditions relating to this topic point to omission and change, and many of it will be related in the chapters……….” Also, Al Kulayni! And Al Qummi! And Al Alayshi and the list goes on and on and on. Al Kulayni writer of Al-Kafi the number one Shia hadith book believes in tahreef… Al Qummi and Al Ayashi writers of the two oldest Shia tafseers believe in tahreef. And you want me to take hadiths from the likes of these people? And I don’t even want to talk about “Fasl Al-Khitab Fi Tahrif Kitab Rabb Al-Arbbab” by Noori. The only cult ever in any religion to write books attacking the authenticity of their holy book must be the Shia. Even modern-day Shia like Qazwini and Al-Fali and others believe in tahreef. Al-Ghizi even went and said that whoever doesn’t believe in tahreef is a kafir as he has gone against the muttawatir! What’s funny is that Shias claim that the Quran is the greater thiqah and the Ahlulbayt is the smaller thiqah yet those who attack the greater thiqah are praised and buried next to Imam Ali like Noori!!! But those who attack the Ahlulbayt are nawasib that more najis than dogs and pigs. And following the Shia narration its Halal to kill them and take their money to pay as Khums. Don’t get me wrong attacking/hating the Ahlulbayt (RA) is a sin but this hypocrisy. Anyway, even the Shias who argue against tahreef have no isnad (chain of narrators) to the Quran. Both sides of the coin are a joke. Especially with over 1200 hadiths on tahreef. As Kamal al Haydari said there are more hadiths on tahreef than Ghadir. Anyway, the Quran that is in our homes is narrated to use by the Sahabah (RA) and every argument a Shia makes using the Quran is always using mutashbihat and weak narrations from books all other the place. Please post your arguments and I will easily dismiss them. 15:9 It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder, and it is certainly We Who will preserve it. 2)Shirk. I really do not know the difference between Shiasim and Christianity. Even the way they speak is the same. Christians tell me to try Jesus and I read somewhere on THIS form saying try salatal istigatha to Fatimah (shirk). Even these Arab Christians say Ya Isa and Shias say Ya Ali!! Yet when we read the Quran and we see verses that condemn these actions. Do I even need to quote the verses? 1:5 It is You we worship and You we ask for help. And we read this every day in our Salah but we don’t think about what we are saying. 72:18 And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone. 13:14 To Him [alone] is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water [from afar, calling it] to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it [thus]. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error [i.e. futility]. This verse clearly calls those who call besides Allah as kafirs. 35: 13-14 He causes the night to enter in upon the day, and He causes the day to enter in upon the night, and He has made subservient (to you) the sun and the moon; each one follows its course to an appointed time; this is Allah, your Lord, His is the kingdom; and those whom you call upon besides Him do not control a straw. If you call on them they shall not hear your call, and even if they could hear they shall not answer you; and on the resurrection day they will deny your associating them (with Allah); and none can inform you like the One Who is Aware. BTW there is a BIG difference between tawassul and istigatha. And the verses go on and on. I don’t even want to talk about wilayatul takwinniyah. (The accusation that the Imam has control of every atom in the universe). What is taught in Saturday schools and said on the mimbars is only a small portion of the shirk that we read in the Shia books such as Ali being the Lord (rabb) of the earth and Allah the Lord (rabb) of the heavens. 43:84 And He it is Who is Allah in the heavens and Allah in the earth; and He is the Wise, the Knowing. If you want I can gladly quote some hadiths for you. Imammah. The SHIA TAFSEER of verses used to “prove” imammah is a joke. They bring a couple of mutashabihat and suddenly they make takfir on everyone who doesn’t believe in it. The lack/absence of verses in the Quran about Imammah is what lead Shia scholars to believe in tahreef. There are even verses that suggest otherwise: 42:38 And those who respond to their Lord and keep up prayer, and their rule is to take counsel among themselves, and who spend out of what We have given them. 3:159 Thus it is due to mercy from Allah that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you; pardon them therefore and ask pardon for them, and take counsel with them in the affair; so when you have decided, then place your trust in Allah; surely Allah loves those who trust Furthermore, Imammah goes against other verses: 33:40 Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things. Watch the video and you will see how he even quotes from Al-mufeed. Also, we are given this idea that Imams are better than prophets while Allah says: 6:83-87 That is Our argument. We gave it unto Abraham against his folk. We raise unto degrees of wisdom whom We will. Lo! thy Lord is Wise, Aware. And We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob; each of them We guided; and Noah did We guide aforetime; and of his seed (We guided) David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the good. And Zachariah and John and Jesus and Elias. Each one (of them) was of the righteous. And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot. Each one (of them) did We prefer above (Our) creatures, With some of their forefathers and their offspring and their brethren; and We chose them and guided them unto a straight path. After Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى mentions his Prophets, He سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى mentions that they have been preferred over the other creations. You can even give the Quran to a non-Muslim in any language and if you asked him about all the pillars of Islam he would know about them but if you asked him about Imammah he will say "what is that?" I would like everyone who has read this post to comment any questions as the more questions you ask the more the truth will be revealed. I would also like to thank websites like anti-majos and twelevershia even though I doubt they read these forums. Also, thank all Muslims that were patient with me and spent their time spreading the truth. PLEASE READ THE QURAN WITH AN OPEN MIND AND IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE ARABIC TRY USING A TRANSLATION WHILE IN THE MEAN TIME LEARNING ARABIC.
  5. Assalamu Alaikum brothers and sisters. I need some advice on a situation I'm currently. To give some background, I am a Sunni muslim and the girl I want to marry is a Shia Syed. Her parents are very traditional and want her to marry Shia man. We're both in love with each other, but she believes her family will never allow us to be together. I've told her I will become Shia and learn everything I need to. I'm not going to lie, I'm not the most religious person right now and I have a lot to learn before making a decision like this, but I am willing to dedicate myself and follow the faith accordingly. Even after telling her this, she is still doubtful that her parents will agree. I want to believe that doing that for her, and reasoning with her father how much I will love her and care for will be enough. But at the same time we both dont want to give each other false hope. I please ask brothers and sisters to give your advice and perspectives. I'm willing do everything to make it right for this girl and show her family I am the man for her. I know no one will love her like I do and I want to approach this the best way.
  6. Why we shouldn't skip prayers!

    I know many of us (believers) have been through this, and I personally experienced my boat sinking and I know it is tough getting it back up. But if you won't understand why you have to get back up then you're definitely going to drown. My point of bringing this topic up is not to scare you away by telling you about the torment of hellfire or the agony in the grave, surely I'll do that by the end of our short exchange, but before everything else I want you to know what benefits and positive change prayers can bring to your life! BENEFITS OF PRAYING There are actually a lot; me and you could go on and on about how practicing Islam can benefit you and the people around you, but this once, let me just mention a few of those that I experienced first-hand. Health Prayer can be a source of exercise for most people. It keeps check on your physical fitness. All the obligatory acts in prayers benefit greatly to ones health. For example, going to ruku and sajda and tash'had saves one from back pain and knee-joints pain. Prayer also wards off many illnesses. Down to Earth When you go down in sujood, it gives you a feeling of how small and insignificant you are in front of all the blessings and creations of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. He made so much, and still blesses you and showers upon you from good. Prayer kills your ego and brings you closer to Allah and the reality. Focusing on how you're alone in this world, and how only Allah is your supporter and benefactor even in the time of adversity. Strengthens the heart and the belief Prayer gives you the strength that you are lacking when facing adversity. It becomes a driving force when met with a lot of short-comings. It strengthens ones resolve to keep moving forward and facing new challenges while knowing that Allah never burdens a soul more than what it can bear. Closeness to Allah When we recite the verses sent down to us Humans by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, we naturally feel close to Him. His words are the reflection upon our own-selves. When we make dua to Him and kneel down to Him, it shows that we are ready to give in our desires for pleasing Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. And that: He is the only "one" we can turn to in the time of adversity... There's nobody else, is there? Countenance and Spiritual Pleasantness Did you know that prayers make your face and spirit brighter? Who wouldn't want their face glowing with happiness and zeal. This not only allows others to look at you in good light but also brings a smile to their faces (especially your family). And it takes off a lot of tension from their shoulders (for some reason). Keeps you away from sins and keeps sins away form you Now this is note-worthy, because both sound just about the same. So where lies the difference? The difference is that there in you will come a sense of responsibility and a sense of accountability once you start praying. You will become more aware of your performance near Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and you'd want to please him more and more. Who wouldn't want beautiful reward from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى?And alternatively, Allah will keep you away from sins with his authority over you if he finds your actions pleasing. And no doubt, he is the most merciful and the most benevolent. Along with oft-forgiving. Gets rid of laziness and grooms punctuality Most of the time we are extremely lazy when it comes to our responsibilities and obligations. But once we start being punctual in prayers habitually, we (Insha'Allah) will become more aware of the limited time we have and the utilization of it. Prayer somewhat grooms the instinct of time within you. When you start praying five times a day, you'll begin to realize if you're spending the remaining time the right way. You will have thoughts like: Am I fulfilling my religious obligations correctly? Is Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى going to be pleased enough with the current me? Have I been listening to every words my parents say? Have I done the job that I must in time? Sense of Accountability I know I am kinda repeating myself here, but I couldn't just skip this point. Because this one is very significant when it comes to prayers. In our daily life, if we skip a prayer, do you know how many things go wrong then? How many times we attempt sins and bad acts? Have you ever reflected upon them?Prayer gives you a chance of reflection. And in the future it keeps you intact and in-check that you don't fall astray to bad acts from Satan. Keeps you pure and clean Before going to prayer, you remember, that you have to be Tahir (pure from any impurity). Thus this single remembrance can keep you more than enough clean and pure. Also, performing ablution three-to-five or more so times a day, protects you from Satan and his devilish whispers. Takes away nightmares and bad dreams I am sure many of us had nightmares or dreams that were bad, something you wish you'd never seen. But if you sleep after doing a wudu, and with faith that Allah and His angels will protect you from such dreams (that come from Satan), you'll be protected. WHAT DOES THE QURAN SAY ABOUT PRAYERS? I hope this thread will open your eyes to the importance of prayers and will bring you closer to Allah. If I made a mistake somewhere in the text, then it is solely from me. Forgive me, as I am only human. P.s. Thanks to my brothers and sisters here, they gave me confidence enough to post my material here. lol. I have some serious confidence issues. :P Anyways, thanks to everybody for reading and supporting! Jazak Allah Khair. Hope it will be helpful to at least a single soul!
  7. English Pakistani Sunni scholars pilgrimage Imam Reza holy shrine (AhlulBayt News Agency) - Twenty Sunni scholars from Pakistan living in England went on pilgrimage of Razavi Holy Shrine in Razavi Karamat Ten Days Celebration. According to Astan News, head of this group said, “A 20-person group including prominent and effective religious scholars residing in England visited Mashhad and Razavi Holy Shrine”. Ja’far Najm stated, “After visiting Razavi Holy Shrine, the group met with Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Imami, Educational Assistant of Razavi University of Islamic Sciences, and got familiar with activities, fields of study, establishment method and cultural activities of this university”. He recognized Imam Reza’s (A.S.) Holy Shrine as a center for unity of Muslims and added, “In addition to receive spiritual emanations, pilgrimage of Sunni Muslims in this holy place consolidates Muslims’ unity”. On the sideline of his visitation in Razavi Holy Shrine, Seyyed Amir Hossein Naqvi, another member of the group stated, “Grandeur and vastness of this holy place is exemplary and unexplainable. Devotion and affection toward Imam Reza (A.S.) is like an elixir which close our hearts to each other, despite of our different Islamic sects”. Birmingham’s Friday leader said that western countries try to tarnish Islam’s face by forming and supporting Wahhabism and Isis. He also added, “Unity among Sunni and Shia Muslims has to be followed seriously so that we can resist against evil plots of the enemy”. “Thanks to God, I have had the success of visiting Razavi Shrine for a few times. However, I am very happy today because my current visitation is happening in Karamat Ten Days Celebration”, he stated. Qur’an museum was introduced by Birmingham Friday Leader as one of the most equipped museums in the Islamic world. He also added, “This museums’ Qur’ans can be found nowhere and it has perfectly shown greatness of Islamic culture to the people of the world”. It is worth mentioning that the group visited Astan Quds Razavi’s physical education institute on the first day of its presence in Mashhad. It should also be mentioned that during their presence in Mashhad, members of this group also met with Ayatollah Noori Hamedani. http://en.abna24.com/news/iran/english-pakistani-sunni-scholars-pilgrimage-imam-reza-holy-shrine_845238.html
  8. Ahlus Sunnat Wal Jamaat are not Yazeedis

    Most of the Shias think that Ahlus Sunnat Wal Jamaat are Yazeedis. This is the biggest misconception between Shias.
  9. Sheik Hassan Allahyari. Salam. Last week Sheikh Asrar Rashid issued at challenge to the Shia Ulema based in the West to debate him. I hereby accept the challenge. Having previously debated and destroyed a plethora of Bakri titans via TV debates, I'll happily do the same with you. I'm based in the USA so therefore fulfill your requirement that the scholar be from the West. As the debate will need to be via satellite I'm happy for it to be aired live for all to see. We can show it concurrently on my Ahlelbayt TV channel and whatever Bakri channel (using your facebook live or any other means of live streaming) you want to show it on. So Shaykh Asrar, I am here, ready, willing and able. Now all that's left is for us to agree the conditions of the debate on the uprightness of the Sheikhayn (Abu Bakr, Umar, A'isha ) and all other companions who deviated from the path of Allah (swt). I'll look forward to hearing from you in due course. Ahlbaittv@gmail.com https://eng.abtv.org
  10. Assalamualikum. I am a Sunni Muslim (For Now). I consider myself to be a devoted Muslim. In our sunni community, all we are taught about Shi'as are that, they believe Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) wasn't the true successor of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and it was Hazrat Ali (RA). But this seems illogical. Because if Allah, Glorious and Exalted as He, had willed, then surely Hazrat Ali (RA) would have been the First Khalifa. Right? Forgive me if I am asking a very obvious question. I spent too much time on the internet debating Atheists, that I didn't have time to research about which is the correct sect of Islam. Thank You for answer.
  11. AntiMajosProduction on Youtube

    Salam! I came across a channel called "Anti Majos Production" where they upload videos that claims to refute our beliefs. They seem to show clips from "Shia scholars" that says pretty weird stuff, I don't know if they have edited the videos to make them seem bad or if these scholars aren't really representing Shia Islam. This video for example, who is the Sheikh and did he really say that Allah swt obeys the Imams (a.s) (Stagfurallah)? Anyone who has seen this channel before? I'm sure the videos aren't representing us Shias, however it'd be interesting to see if these "scholars" really said all those strange things, or if they really are Shias to begin with.
  12. Salaam all, I have been watching the Umar series just to allow free thought and invite open-mindedness and to understand the roots of Islam and shism better. I just had a question: The prophet passed away, not long after the event of ghadeer whereby he proclaimed Imam Ali (a.s) as a successor. Upon the tragic death of the prophet, the "muslims" decided to take control of the ummah (as though it was their responsibility and not Allah's command). They treated Islam as a country, rather than a divine message, allowing to 'elect' leaders themselves, whereas, Islam has always been a religion propagated by DIVINELY CHOSEN individuals, not those chosen by ordinary fallibles. So my question is, how come, upon 'electing' the next successor, not one individual spoke about ghadeer, how can such a vast majority of muslims simply 'forget' about such an important event. I mean, not all of them would have been power hungry, at least someone should have remembered it.. Since so many people had forgotten about such an event, and so quickly, what does that say about ghadeer itself, it happened, for sure, but how would one justify it through this lens? Wassalam
  13. [ADMIN NOTE]: This is a thread devoted to sharing stories and issues pertaining to all reverts to Islam, particularly Shia Islam. Allah bless you. Salam Alekum, I am writing an article regarding women reverts to Islam. The common belief amoung researchers is that the vast majority of revert women between 17 to 35 are married to non revert men (arab, persian, indo/pak, etc). So I would like as many revert sisters as possible to participate in order to get some good information regarding this subject. Please do not vote unless you are a revert to Islam, a women, (not born into a muslim family and currently identify your religion as Islam) and between the ages of 17 to 35. Some definitions. Non revert muslim man. A man who was born into a muslim family and currently identifies his religion as Islam revert muslim man. A man who was not born into a muslim family and currently identifies his religion as Islam.
  14. Assalāmu ʿalaykum wa Rahmatullah. I, converted to Shia Islam after I had all my questions anwsered about it. But I have recently come across a page showing references from narrations not by Sayf Ibn Umar and from Shia narrators. http://www.*************/2013/05/30/ibn-saba-the-jew-the-spiritual-father-of-the-rafidha-an-unquestionable-truth/ how could we respond to this?
  15. Allowed? Will her parents be angry? (ofcourse we will ask for their consent) What can I say to their parents to have their consent?
  16. Marriage Shia/Sunni

    Asalam alikum brothers and sisters, I have read a few of Shia/Sunni marriage answers. And I do understand that it's discouraged. However, I feel that it's parents decision on how to raise their children. Just for clarification, I will stay Shia if I marry this person. I like a sunni guy. He is an educated man, have a good job and is financially stable. We have now known eachother for about 3 years. We have always wanted to get married. About 2 years back my parents found us talking to eachother and they refused to believe that he is an educated man and have a good job. They said he was fooling me (which he was not, even if I am young and naive in my parents eye - I am not a complete idiot). They also said they I don't know what zaat he is from or if he is a "bhangi or taley", he is a Patel. His eldest sister is married to a Bangali man and his older brother is married to a Pakistani girl. My parents also said that they (His family) is too multicultural for them to be comfortable with it. My parents also hide behind the curtain of being Shia and Syed. I understand that Syeds are cconsidered descendents from Prophet Muhamma (PBUH) ahlulbayt. I know that it's a great honor however, we have to be proper Muslims and a true Shia for us to take that title. In my opinion, the title doesn't give us any superiority to other Muslims. (If we have such frim believe in zaat system then isn't it copying from Hindu culture). We both wantes our parents blessings in the marriage and keep the family together. And as he is a sunni, he has to face same problems from his parents, although his as well as my siblings are more accepting to the fact. The main concern is with parents acceptance and blessings. We haven't tried approaching our parents again. His mother have already engaged him to another girl and he has said yes because our parents wouldn't agree. I made istikhara form istikhara e Sajjadia book. "جس کام کوتبرا دل چاہتا ہےاس میں سعی کر. کیونکہ زہد میں راحت ہے اور قناعت میں عزت." (I am sorry, I can not attach the picture files) I made istikhara twice and it wasn't the same but similar to it. Now don't know how to interpret it. My istikhara niyat was "if marriage between me and him would be a good for us - for a our faith, livelihood, and our akhirat. Also if our parents raza and blessings will be in our marriage. I am not sure if I made the istikhara right. Right now I am just scared to approach him and my parents Please don't judge me based on just this part of the story. I do not need anyone to tell me I will go to hell or how I am not a Muslim anymore. I apologized for this long message. And thank you for taking the time to read it. Wassalam, Silah
  17. Before Sunnis come to us with a weak hadith and say 'Look! The Shia believe the Quran is incomplete!'. First we should say, they are weak and were compiled by fallible people. We don't believe the Quran is incomplete. Then we should say 'How about these which you say are completely perfect?'(I'm only quoting from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim). Umar ibn al Khattab said, Certainly Allah sent Muhammad with the truth and revealed him the Book. One of the revelations which came to him was the verse of stoning. We read it and understood it. The Messenger of God stoned and we stoned after him. I am concerned that if time goes on, some one may say ‘ By God we do not find the verse of stoning in the Book of God ‘; thus, the Muslims will deviate by neglecting a commandment the Almighty revealed. Al-Bukhari recorded in his Sahih, v8, pages 209-210 According to Umar, there was a verse of stoning revealed when we know there is no verse of stoning, and he's concerned that people will stop stoning because that bit is missing. 3 options here:1) Bukhari isn't sahih 2) Umar is a liar 3) the Quran is actually incomplete. It's obviously the first or the second. If I were not afraid of the fact that people may say that ‘Umar has added to the Qur’an extra (verses), I would have written the Verse al- Rajm (stoning to death of married adulterers) with my own hands. Sahih al-Bukhari, vol 9, p212.Here, Umar says he would have added the verse with his own hands if he wasn't afraid of the people (whole host of implications about the persona of Umar there, but that is a different topic). Aisha said that the Qur’anic verse enjoining stoning for adultery was written on a leaf, but the leaf was accidentally eaten by a goat while the Prophet Muhammad was on his death-bed, and thus the verse was lost. Sahih Muslim, the book of nursing (al-Ridha), v10 pages 29 (Arabic). We used to read a Chapter from the Qur’an similar to Bara’ah in length and seriousness, but I forgot it. I can remember from the Chapter only the following words:Should a son of Adam own two valleys full of wealth, he should seek a third valley and nothing would fill Ibn Adam’s abdomen but the soil.Sahih Musllim Chapter CCCXCI, p500, Tradition #2286. If I were a Sunni and I read those ahadith, I would have to ponder as to whether these 'sahih' books are actually sahih- just a side note- the book of Nikah in Sahih Bukhari contains some shocking ahadith which are an insult to the Messenger (pbuh) and I will make an article about that inshallah. To conclude, Bukhari and Muslim think that that there was an ayah about stoning, a whole Surah the size of al Bar'ah is missing, and, oh, I almost forgot, Allah can't protect his holy book from a goat.
  18. (Bismillah) Salam I don't wanna sound like an atheist but I'm trying to be as critical as I can cuz these questions are holding me back from being a Shia Muslim and I would be so happy if u could answer these questions so that people don't always win me in argues with these questions thank u. 1. Is it true that if u revert or convert away from Islam u will be killed: Quran Quran (4:89) - "They wish that you should reject faith as they reject faith, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper." Verse 4:65 says that those who have faith are in "full submission" to Muhammad's teachings. This verse explains what should happen to Muslims who do not have faith. Quran (9:11-12) - "But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief - Lo! they have no binding oaths - in order that they may desist." Other verses that seem to support the many Hadith that establish the death sentence for apostates are Quran verses 2:217, 9:73-74, 88:21, 5:54, 9:66. Hadith and Sira The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse4:80 of the Quran: "Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah." Sahih Bukhari (52:260) - "...The Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " Sahih Bukhari (83:37) - "Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Sahih Bukhari (84:57) - [In the words of] "Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'" Sahih Bukhari (89:271) - A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle." Sahih Bukhari (84:58) - "There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, 'Who is this (man)?' Abu Muisa said, 'He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.' Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, 'I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.' Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, 'Then we discussed the night prayers'" 2. Why is Shiism the right sect when we hit our selfs for Imam Hussein wen hurting yourself is haram and hitting yourself on the chest makes health issues worse. And did the imams or prophet tell us to hit each other or slice each other up and tawasul is haram right u can only pray to Allah or else it's haram in the beginning of the Quran it says worship Allah alone only him and there is no verse supporting to say ya ali or ya Hussein why can't we say ya Allah or ya Muhammad rasolallah why do we put more focus on the imams and not as much to the prophet. If you answer to these questions and it make sense and with sources I will convert to Shia Islam 3. Is the Darwin theory true? Or Adam and Eve can any of it be true and how. 4. It's haram to take over other countries and take their land like tha caliphs did right and if the prophet allowed it is their any proof and why was it to have power is this the pure Islam? 5. We shouldn't be visiting Imams shrines no I mean like puttinggg gold around it it's haram right and also people talk with the imams why isn't this haram and some imams say that the Quran is not the right version. And they focus so much on Imam Hussein and hit them selves why is it ok if u don't do that? Extra questions why are the Middle East contries back is it cuz of o freedom like the sharia law why do people that don't Belive in Islam have to follow our rules and don't u think thoose rules were good for 1400 years ago, why do we have marjas? thank u so much brothers and sisters Allah hafiz
  19. (salam) (bismillah) I came across this fatwa by al-Sistani that has been recently given. I found it interesting. Sunday, October 13, 2013835 MasonDearborn, MI 48124United StatesSee map: Google MapsQuestion No. 100644 The subject of the question: Insulting the companions and wives of the prophet (s.a.w.a.) --------------------------------------------- The Question: as-Salamu Alykum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuhu, A video clip has been seen several times on social network web sites showing a congregation during the martyrdom of al-Imam al-Jawad (a.s.). This group of people from the area known as al-A'dhamiyyah are shown shouting out insults upon 'Omar, A’isha, and others. Is this type of behavior condemned by the supreme religious authority, especially since it involves the insult of religious figures of our brothers of the Sunni school of thought, and it could potentially fuel unrest amongst the people of Iraq and jeopardize peace? The Answer: In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful This type of behavior is condemned, strongly denounced and contrary to the commands of the Imams of the Holy Household of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) to their followers. Allah is The Guide. The Office of Ayatullah Sayyid al-Sistani The Holy City of Najaf 12/2/1434 Source: https://secure.imam-us.org/fatwa/companions?utm_source=Sayyid+Sistani%27s+fatwa+about+the+Prophet%27s+%28s.a.w.a.%29+companions&utm_campaign=Sistani+Companion+Sahabah&utm_medium=email (salam)
  20. Taqqiah 90% of faith?

    As mentioned in Al-Kafi, Chapter Taqqiah, " Imam Al-Jafer Sadiq said Taqqiah is 90% of Deen (faith), its my Deen and the Deen of my ancestors" Why did the Holy Quran ignore the 90% of Deen and talked merely about the 10%? Why its not among five pillars of Islam? (Though given such a huge percentage in Shia school of thought )
  21. Cousin Feels Toilet Frequently

    Assalamalaikum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu, My Cousin feels that he has peed in pant while he is performing ablution, or performing salat or reciting holy Quran. But when he check it in the washroom, nothing has happened So while numerous times he used to go to washroom, by which he's underpants gets wet he feels the same problem and can't do Ibadah properly . Pls provide some solution to heal this disease hazrath this happens during all these times (while doing wuzu, sometimes while in salaat and sometimes while reciting Qur'an).. So pls add to the question if he id Pak or If he need to perform another wuzu? Pls Janab, he is fasting in the holy month Ramadhan, yet he feel very sick to move out in the middle of jamat every 1 or 1/2 hours.. It embarrasses him. Juzkumullah Kharan...
  22. Help with knowledge!!

    Can anyone here give me some channels/sites where I can learn more about the beliefs of Shia, Sunni, Salafi, science etc. Because Ramadan is about learning too! Now I am a Shia, and I have the proof for the Shia are right, but I want to know what my brothers believe in (But I do not think Salafi see me as a brother...)
  23. Combining prayers

    Salam alaikum brothers and sisters. I am a revert now for maybe 4 months and I am having some trouble understanding what is permissible or not. My wife is Sunni muslim of african decent and I am of the USA. She lives in the EU and Im in the US for now(working of immigration process). Ive been recently combining my zhuhr and asr prayer together and sometimes the maghrib and isha prayer. When i started this i actually combine the two so zhuhr and asr 8 rakat and 7 for maghrib and isha. This is not all the time but most of the time because of convenience and work. Is this acceptable? My wife says that I have to separate them but from the research ive done online this is acceptable and some say no. Some sunni brothers told me that this is acceptable as long as the reason is valid. On this site I have read that this is an acceptable practice no matter the reason. Why the differences? Is it a cultural or regional thing and or sunni and shia thing? Can someone give me a little guidance here with references. Thank you all! and Ramadan Kareem
  24. Do you have a lot of knowledge
