(salam) sisters (and brothers creeping in the sisters section!) :D

I just attended a lecture by brother Hasanain Rajabali at the mosque and that man never fails to amaze me! :D I seriously love his lecturing techniques. I wish I personally knew him... *sigh*

Anyways!

So my question is, do you girls (and guys, please feel free to answer) have a favorite lecturer and why?

Well, most of you may not know him because he is an Urdu speaker, but my favorite :wub: speaker would be Sayed Ali Murtaza Zaidi.

I also like:

- Murtaza Alidina (if I remember the name correctly): almost like an English version of Sayed Ali Murtaza Zaidi for me;

- Sayed Mahdi al-Modarresi;

- Sayed Ammar Nakshwani;

- Amina Inloes: not really a lecturer as such like how, say, Sayed Modarresi, Hassanain Rajabali or Sayed Ankshwani may be but when it comes to knowledge, she as looooooads of it, especially considering the fact that our women tend to be very deprived in this regard;

- Maulana Sadiq Hasan: one of the oldies in Urdu speaking and an ABSOLUTE legend at that;

- Hassanain Rajabali of course and

- Sheikh Usama al-Attar.

NOTE: the names are not in order and I may have missed some; when I remember anymore, I will post them here. :D

I agree with you sis, Hassanain Rajabali NEVER fails to completely blow me away. Every. Single. Time.

Remember, you agreed to come to Camp Taha with me this year!! Don't bail :P

I remember when I was about 14 years old, I had heard him for the first time at our mosque. I wasn't religious at all then. He was just an average brother who came to speak at our mosque. He spoke about simplistic concepts. Things that make complete sense but things that I have never thought about on my own. That man literally changed my world in that one lecture of his. And I am forever grateful for that. May Allah continue to give us speakers like him and many many more!

Wsalaam sister, MashaAllah you are very very lucky to be able to go his lectures and be one of his obediences. I can't say enough how this man is amazing. the fist book i read about shia islam was a book suggested by him in one of his lectures b4 i actually converted to shia. i read that book and alhamdulilah i decided to do more research about shia islam and i ended up being a shia in just few months ALHAMDULILAH. the book was amazing. i sent him couple of questions on his face book and had little convo, his words made me feel so good and very confident. may Allah continue blessing him ya Rab.

my Top favarite lecturers now:

1. Sheikh Abdelhalim Al-ghazie, Ya Allah this man has the knowledge itself, he talks so deeply and is very eloquent. i leant so much from him. my favorite ziaret Al-jamia i heard it from him first time and he has an entire show on the tafser of the ziara on his channel plz you must watch him if you speak arabic. he is from Iraq originally lives in London. i couldnt go to his lectures cos women cant attend its only for men :(

2. is brother Hassanain Rajabali, i already spoke about him :)

3. Sheikh Yassir Al-habib... this man is very controversial but he is one of the best speakers we have this days. if you can disagree thats fine.

4. Zahra Al-alawi... i love this girl mashaAllah she is amazing. we are friends on face book and exchanged messages few times, she invited me to come on reverts world :blush: me on a tele :!!!:

lastly anyone who talks about the holy Ahlulbayt is close to my heart and has my duas. even tho we disagree with each other on certain Ulama, bottom line we should remember selmun leman salamakom wa harbun leman harabakoom inshallah.

i have actually never listen to a female speaker before i shall start for now ! ill look up those two sisters that were mentioned i seriously never new women speakers existed

there are quite few female speakers, Zakira Shayroze Dallah is also good. she is from Canada, came on Ahlulbayt tv in Muharram. if you watch Ahlulbayt tv english you wud see we have some female speakers.

Insha'Allah! I wanna go so bad lol maybe I should get Hasanain to talk to my dad :D haha

He is an amazing speaker, and Knows how to balance everything. I can't stand it when speakers are completely morbid and serious, I like how Hasanain cracks a joke every once in a while. He has a daughter! I wanna see her and his wife >.<

shiekh usama al attar

Sheikh Nami was here during Muharram and I didn't like his lecturing style at all... I have no idea why.

For female speakers, Sister Najah Bazzy is really good.

Eh... Shes another person I didn't click with...

I don't remember what it was but I'd probably remember as soon as I see another one of her lectures.

There are! I know Noor Almosewy and she's pretty good! She gives lectures every once in a while. But hey if you find a really good lecturess tell me about her lol

Oh you guys! Before the lecture a young man went up and recited a beautiful poem... I was wondering if he was one of the awesome people of SC :D lol

nope who is he is he any good? or is she a she lol

she, yes, very simple nice lectures, sure to give the audience a strong desire to change. But more importantly, when she narrates the tragedy of karbala, she really sticks to a realistic story, more so than anyone else I have listened to, and because of that, it adds more emmotion to the whole thing.

I'm not really sure where to find her lectures online, I don't think she is famous enough to be on youtube,

here are some

this seems to be for younger people

Oh! How could I forget Sheikh Muhammed al-Hilli! :mad: He is BRILLIANT! :D I love his way of talking - soft and informative. SD, Thank you for reminding me! :D

I also have Sheikh Nami Farhat on Facebook but I have never seen any of his lectures so can't comment.

Sayed Jawad al Qazwini (SD, thank you for reminding me again) is also very good and, considering his age, he is an ace! :D

Let me name some people who are not really speakers or Ulama - like Sayed Modarresi, Sayed Nakshwani or the Qazwinis among others - as such but I still like them a lot:

- Abdul Rauf Shokoya: my sister likes the way he makes facial expressions :P ;

- Sajad Jiyad;

- Brother Murtaza KG;

- Zahra al-Alawi: quite knowledgeable for her age and also very confident;

There are others which, when I remember, I will post later, just like the speakers I which I posted in the first part but had forgotten them before.

I could give some more Urdu lecturers who I find inspiring but, considering the fact that most of you don't know Urdu, I will just leave them. :(

I really liked :wub: the little bit of his debate "Does God not exist" that I watched.

    • NO, IT IS HARAM. SENDING GIFT TO HER AND CONGRATULATING HER FOR HER FALLACIOUS MARRIAGE IS ALSO HARAM.
    • Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib(as)   I have avoided the discussion of “The God” and aspects and working, so we do not get distracted and dwell in the realm( of Evil, Mercy, Love, help, present/absent, why does he not act, or why he/ she is silent, why allow all this, that is going on ) that is out of our domain for this discussion at this point in time. If there is a need, I(Layman opinion) will say, The one who  created me, doesn't owe me anything, beyond guidance. If anything exists it's the lack of follow through or rejection of the guidance. I.e. If the humans allow conditions to develop, and there is oppression. Where is God is not the question. Question, is Humanity has been guided at two levels ( inner and outer), rejection of both is the issue not why God does not take away this evil person that we elected or tolerated until he/she turned on us(we were fine up untill it was happening to others). We human need to do our job, instead of having entitlement mentality, and deflect it to it's your fault God., where are you and why you do not help. We have been helped. Intellect/Guidance( brief understanding, as a layman). Maybe not the best example but it will suffice, We would not expect the Mars rover to dwell in the realm of our working, instead it should be concerned with its prime directive, and we are to provide it guidance to accomplish its work. There are may misunderstanding, in  definition, version, understanding due to linguistic, terminology(old/new), cultural (East/West) and lack of Conceptual discussion at the basic fundamental level instead of technicalities and mechanic(which is subconsciously embedded in the way we have been groomed in schools and universities). A charged and contentious environment does not help in getting to any resolution. It's usually tit for tat, and pride get in the way in different threads a that were responding to targeted and side issue out of context. No one to the best of my knowledge and understanding denies we are limited creations in all  aspects. Your creation and Your surrounding creation(s) , are proof of something that  can not be denied. So, there is a Cause, the unlimited, infinitely powerful, Unknown/Unseen Source of all this. What you(non Muslims) call that source is not relevant - you can call it a system,  I call it God. So, there are no Atheists or Agnostic here. What an Atheist/ Agnostic may be, saying is that they do not believe in the God of Islam as “presented “or as understood or as described. That is a very different issue. But this issue, gets mixed up with other issues dealing with the mechanics in other threads which are on specific topics. Getting back to the Topic. We turn now to Stephen Hawking. He proposes M-theory, a variant of string theory, to explain the origins of the universe. The conclusion of his last book, The Grand Design, states:
      Stephen Hawking is a SME ( Subject Matter Expert) in his field of Study. If he gave his scientific theory and left it at that. I would not care nor it should be my concern, as there are many SMEs and have their theories in the Scientific world about may things.  His connecting it to and concluding that there is no need for god( his understanding of what god is to him). Is the issue, I am highlighting it not only because of what he said, because he or people like him are followed and the laypeople use these ideas to formulate their ideology. This is something, prevalent, using  fiction which they call ‘Science” as a tool to attack Divine Religion. This is where this talk and connection / implication that this is the god and of you can’t pray to or ask for help form gravity, or physical laws are not empathetic, and are cold  and have no concern for the humans ….This connection makes no sense. Comparing apples and oranges and mixing stuff that is confusing. This mentally is delusional and it stems out of misunderstanding of the concepts of pray, or help, mercy, etc..or implications that ignorant people believe in miracles and angels. Or we can’t carbon date the text, or evidence of such and such event. In short ignorant conclusions by apparently learned people in their field of study Trickle down effect, and the lay Atheists/Agnostics take these talking point and formulate an opinion and argument with it. Objectivity is also an issue, here. Double standards. Scientific theories are not subject to the same rigorous, and shredding mentality.   Its 5000, 2000, 1400 old stuff, we are Technically advanced. We forget that this advancement is in Technology,(only). The basic alphabet  in terms of Social behavior, is as old as the cave people.  Moving beyond, Mechanics, working, Techinacilities and this attitude of the best generation to exist, every preceding generation had the same attitude. and we will be looked at and our theories considers as old and outdated by the new generations.  Its a Point is time assessment.  What are the benefits of the revealed information- i.e Revealed to us through our struggle and study through discovery of us and whats around us.? Do we follow the Laws, derived from this new knowledge?  If not what are we rally arguing about. If a person can't even at least in Theory acknowledge the laws of Nature for our(Humanity)  Benefit. If you were to do that, you may rethink you position, because you may realize that you have been arguing against something that Natural laws actually prove.  This is what concerns me, at this point. Why can't the objective, learned and "technically" advanced people  see that and make this connection? Technical stuff/mechanic, of Biological change, next stage, or toasters, cars, bridges, space race, new medicine and quest of the common animal are of what consequence except for knocking a book or theory of descent or maybe some new medicine may develop form the finding. If the theory of micro evolution as marketed to support the a particular version of evolution ,  is inserted here, its argues that we will always be a step behind and they(Virus) will mutate, or accomplishing something making life better and having some toys and pride issues over other nations that we went to pluto..so what ?  How does this help us , solving the social problems of Humanity? (That is what Divine Religion is about).. Is there a comprehensive Social theory under development due to above technical advancements. ?  Is there a comprehensive Social theory out there? (maybe not to the liking of the people due to Nurture, but is there) To, me it looks like a willful denial of the Nature, a clash of Nature vs Nurture. People are finding any thing to latch on to stay free of any obligation/accountability.  Correct me if I am wrong, I am a layman, average person. I read , what is written by people , i assess and drive at a conclusion. So, I post to be criticized, constructive criticism. So, I can better understand and remove misunderstanding(s) to gain better knowledge.   
    • The nature of the Existence is to exist. Thats all.
    • If the father doesn't approve of it, and didn't leave the door open for further contact, then that's it. They are not being disrespectful. Saying "no" should not forcibly come with an explanation, thus you can't demand it nor force them to listen to you. It is called freedom, and that is more sacred than anything you can tell them.
