you can only convert to shia if you are already a shia. go read plato, all knowledge is recollection, and this knowledge above all.

you just need to remember that you are a shia of Ali a.s.w.s ... if you are, indeed, a shia of Ali aza wa jallah... i sometimes have doubts about myself :(

remember your troth, remember your bond, remember the face of Ali, and all will be well inshaAllah

If you are already Muslim, there is no conversion, just be Shia. 

also the above.

I'm keeping husn dhan and think that you mis-wrote this dear brother.

Ali aza wa jallah - what does that mean?

Its always Ali alehes salam. Ali AS shahadat in sajda to one and only Allah swt tells us that he is but a creation of Allah swt.

Since couple of posts looks suspicious, I would like to remind brothers here the verse:

"Surah Al-Hadid, Verse 4:

وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنتُمْ وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

and He is with you wherever you are; and Allah sees what you do."

So do not try to fool us by writing "Azza wa jallah" with the name of Moula Ali. Better know the fact that what is hidden in your heart is open for the One which is Supreme in knowledge and power. Therefore, with any such act, you are only making yourself a fool.

acha sorry, but there is an Ali who is in fact aza wa jallah, not even a hardcore wahhabi would deny that, and to be a shia of One is to be the shia of the Other

no one is trying to fool you. aap sai certificate nahi chahye apne khuloos ka. aap ki acceptance nahi maangta. i accept i may be a fool myself, no problems with that. chhorain baat ko. baat ki spirit dekhen. sorry for urdu, mods.

i dont know. i wrote it in the spur of the moment. what does that say about my aqeeda? judge for yourself and enlighten me.

ive only ever heard even muhibs known for extreme love for Mola Ameer ul Momineen say or write jalla jallala hu and thats it! i did a google search for Ali aza wa jallah and the only link that came up was this thread.

do i consider Mola the pinnacle and source of all izzah and all jallal? yes.

do i know how Mola cursed and burnt those who called him God? yes

do i understand that Mola died during sujood to give the message that he was but a servant of God? yes

does the first statement conflict with the two that follow it?

Ali aza wa jallah - what does that mean?

The word ‘Azza’ is derived from ‘Izzah’, which means might and power and the word ‘Jalla’ is derived from Al-Jalaal, which means greatness and reverence. Therefore, the term Azza wa Jalla is an attribute of Allaah which means that He is the Owner of Greatness and Reverence and that He is The Most Strong Who is never defeated. 
 

This user believes Ali have attribute of Allah (swt), which is a shirk. If this kind of person keep posting such a viewpoints, he should get banned for sure.

F.Y.I

Shi’a means "to follow and support someone", follower etc.

So if you mean "Al-Ali-ul-Azeem" (Allah S.W.T), how can you follow a thing, like of which there is nothing? You can be among HIZBULLAH but you cannot be the "SHIA of Allah".

He is absolutely right. This the theme of the name Ali in Quran. To be a follower of Ali is to be a follower of Al-Ali. To believe in Ali is to believe in Al-Ali. And to believe in Al-Ali is to believe in Ali. If you can remember the light of Ali, you can see that Imam Mahdi is with you. You are not the light, but the light with you. You are not the darkness but the darkness is with you. We choose which side to take because the darkness helps on in what we get quickly (so we are hasty) and the light helps us get what is forever.

We don't know it means to be patient and resolved without Mohammad, and we don't know what it means to connect to God without Ali. Ali is patience, and Mohammad is the connection. And vice versa.

The Guide is with every one of us. And the Imam is the spirit by which Allah helps believers, the spirit from him.

Ali and Ali are both names of God, and the hadiths say they are, and they say this is one of the meanings of the four sacred months in 12 months being the firm religion, that the sacred names are Ali which have the name of God. The Quran also states both Al-Ali and Ali for Allah.

The name of Ali, one of the most common names in Islam and the name of imam Ali bin Abi Talib, cousin of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings up him and his family, is also derived from one of the 99 name of Allah: Al-Ali (The High One). Thus you cannot use Al-Ali as a name, but when you remove the "al" from the beginning, you get the acceptable name Ali, which means high, exalted, sublime.

" The Quran also states both Al-Ali and Ali for Allah."

Yes, but have you ever taken into consideration the verses where Allah has used the name Ali, it immeduately follows another name e.g:

Surah Ash-Shura, Verse 51:

وَمَا كَانَ لِبَشَرٍ أَن يُكَلِّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا وَحْيًا أَوْ مِن وَرَاءِ حِجَابٍ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ رَسُولًا فَيُوحِيَ بِإِذْنِهِ مَا يَشَاءُ إِنَّهُ عَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ

Surah Az-Zukhruf, Verse 4:

وَإِنَّهُ فِي أُمِّ الْكِتَابِ لَدَيْنَا لَعَلِيٌّ حَكِيمٌ

 

The "tarkeeb" La Aliyyun Hakeem is not for Allah in this verse.

The Quran has a verse saying God is the most worthiest of being followed but we know he is to be followed through a leader and guide.

The first in Quran "By the name of God...." in Suratal Fatiha and the 2nd verse "All praise is due to...." is emphasizing among the many things it's emphasizing, the wisdoms of the names of Mohammad and Ali, and with Suratal TaHa we see here it has the theme implicitly among it's many meanings, through Ali you will achieve Mohammad for Ali is by which the heart of Mohammad was relieved entrusted to spread knowledge with eloquence, and has a theme of "Lord of Harun and Musa".  The name of God is by which everything glorifies God, and Imam Hussain and the 9 sons of Hussain, are primarily those hinted in "To God belongs the most beautiful names".

You were on the right track but are backing out for nothing. Allah being Al-Ali implies he is Ali, and Ali is subset of Al-Ali, but Al-Ali is definitely an Ali. That is proven in all basis of logic and reason. To say Allah (swt) is not a Ali is the same as saying Allah is not an Ilah, it makes no sense. As for Uloohiya, then none share in that, as for Uloowiya, then Imams have that status, as for being praiseworthy, they have that status as well.

This is the most middle thing, because the cut off point is Ali. The cut off point between Uloohiya and non-uloohiya is Ali. That is the highest stage to acknowledge before we go to shirk.

That is why their names are sacred. Praise is not a cut off point, neither is goodness, neither is beauty, all though God is praised, good, and beautiful, the cut off point between Shirk and Allah, is Exaltedness. We go beyond exalting, and we are in Shirk. We go below exalting the Imam and we are disbelievers.

You were on the right track. Allah being Allah, stating he is Ali or Atheem is redundant almost, but it's to emphasize Imams and their reality, and the cut off point is Ali.

That is to say everywhere where Allah is mentioning his lower names that are already implied by the rank of Godhood, is to reveal the reality of his favor upon us, and the reality of the Imams and particularly emphasizing on Ali in most of these places.

Ali is the most repeated out of these in Quran, and blind be the blind who can't see the Quran is about Ali.

There is no sword but Zulfiqar, there is no champion but Ali - Jibrael (as).

It's ok to have your point of view, but when Imams say the four sacred months refers to the four Alis because they been named with the name of God that these are the "sacred". We have to believe there is wisdom in Imams saying this, in Quran revealing the 12 Imams in this manner, etc.

There is also more to be said, we go through cycles, and as God is represented by all things and all things reveal something about him, a circle also points to infinite praise that is connected. Straight path is a series of spiraling up this circle, and the names of the 12 Imams, are part of this circle. The first name has to be Ali, because every time we enter a new stage, we go up higher much higher, the next name makes sense to be what it means to be good once in this stage (a new standard), we need to know what it means to be good, then it's to perfect this image (beauty) but once we achieve beauty we are doing so by spiraling through going through 9 signs...and 9 signs have their mini stages denoted by name and nicknames of Imam. The final when guided to the praise of the next stage, one recycle, from exaltedness, and the names repeat, we need to know what it means to be good again in this stage, the final name before Al-Mahdi name is about how we help God's cause and be party of his army, what we do to fight oursleves but as well as help others and be firm and strong against enemies. Each stage has a new stage. And when we go beyond 7 veils, this cycle still repeats.

not for nothing. for intellectual honesty.

I stand by this: to be one of Ali son of AbuTalib a.s.w.s's people is to be one of al-Ali's (Allah's) people. however, the reason i said it then may not have been quite honest. it was to defend something i had said inconsiderately and in a flow of emotion, maybe even exhibitionism, maybe something worse.

The respected gentleman was saying something like -as far as i understand it- we cannot claim to be the shia of Allah because Allah is beyond our comprehension to the extent that, for example, we may say He deserves all praise, but cannot praise Him, except through formulae taught by Masumeen a.s.w.s. So to that extent, we can only be said to follow masumeen a.s.w.s (if that).

but Zaidi sahib, if al-Ali is beyond our comprehension, so is Ali ibn AbiTalib (salawat on the family of Muhammad). this has been dragged out for too long, all for the inconsiderate use of one word by one who cannot even be said to be a muta'alim but hopes to be counted among their ranks one day, who only hopes he is not counted among juhallaa at the close of his youth. so pray for me.

let us not waste anymore time on this meaningless thread, but rather return to the words of Ahl al Bait alehim us salawat o salam in the hope that each may find the wisdom that is his/her rightful portion from the treasures of Aale Muhammad, salawat ala alehim ajmaeen.

Brother, if you have taken my words something other than an advise, then excuse me for this mistake, but dont insist on your point, here is the verse you to which you are pointing:

Surah Yunus, Verse 35:

قُلْ هَلْ مِن شُرَكَائِكُم مَّن يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ قُلِ اللَّهُ يَهْدِي لِلْحَقِّ أَفَمَن يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ أَحَقُّ أَن يُتَّبَعَ أَمَّن لَّا يَهِدِّي إِلَّا أَن يُهْدَىٰ فَمَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ

Say: Is there any of your associates who guides to the truth? Say: Allah guides to the truth. Is He then Who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed, or he who himself does not go aright unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you; how do you judge?

Here the word SHIA is not used, instead Allah has used the word "Yuttaba'a", we have been commanded to do "itteba'a" (follow) Rasool & those who're firmly rooted in knowledge. There is difference of meaning in the words Shia & Yuttaba'a.

Have you seen anywhere in Quran where Allah called His Prophets as His Shia? Everywhere in Quran Allah has used the word "Abd" for prophets & choosen ones.

Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 56:

وَمَن يَتَوَلَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللَّهِ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ

And whoever takes Allah and His apostle and those who believe for a guardian, then surely the party of Allah are they that shall be triumphant.

Here again, the word Shia is not used, instead Hizbullah is used. So try to remain within the parameter set by Allah (s.w.t).

There is a difference between these two as mentioned by Moula Ali (a.s) in his manajaat:

"Moulaya ya Moula, AntAl-Khaliq wa anal makhlooq, wa hul yarhamul makhlooqe illal khaliq.

Moulaya ya Moula AntAr-Rab wa anal murboob, wa hul yarhamul marboobe illa-Ar-Rab."

And above all, you can find the difference with this verse:

Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 103:

لَّا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الْأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ

Vision comprehends Him not, and He comprehends (all) vision; and He is the Knower of subtleties, the Aware.

Shia has to meaning either:

Supporter, follower, or party of...as for party of you know the word hizb for that.

As for supporter, Allah [swt] calls upon people to help him.

As for follower, that's exactly the same as the other word.

One more perhaps word that Shia can mean, is who obeys the person, that is to say he doesn't follow example of but obeys.

All these are emphasized in Quran.

By your argument, we might as well abandon all 12 Imams because their names are not mentioned explicitly in Quran.

Just because the Quran didn't use "Shia", doesn't mean it's not a good use nor does it mean God forbid it.

Admitting and accepting truth be it from a child is a sign of humbleness.

In 'Ikmal-ud-Din' a tradition, through 'Jabir-il-Ju'fi', is narrated from 'Jabir-ibn-'Abdillah' thus: "I said: 'O Messenger of Allah we have known Allah and His Apostle; then who is 'Ulul-Amr', those that Allah has made their obedience the same as your obedience?' Then, the Prophet (p.h.u.h.) said: 'O' Jabir! They are, after me, my successors and the guides of Muslims; the first of them is Ali ibn Abi Talib; then (Imam) Hassan, and (Imam) Husayn; then Ali ibn Husayn; then Mohammad ibn Ali; known in the Turah as Baqir, whom you will see, O' Jabir! When you visit him, give my regards to him. After him, there is Sadiq, Ja'far ibn Muhammad; and after him Musa ibn Ja'far; then Ali ibn Musa; then Muhammad ibn Ali; then Ali ibn Muhammad, then Hassan ibn Ali; and after him (there comes) Al-Qaim, whose name and epithet is the same as mine. He is Allah's Authority on the Earth and His Remainder amongst His servants. He is the son of (Imam) Hassan-ibn-Ali (al-'Askari). This is the very personality by whose hands Allah will open the Easts and Wests of the worlds and this is the very personality who will be absent from his followers and those who love him, in which his mastership cannot be proved by a statement of anyone except for the one whose heart Allah tests for Faith." Jabir said: "I asked him: 'O' Messenger of Allah will his followers avail of him during his occultation?' He answered: 'Yes. By the One Who appointed me to prophethood, they will seek brightness from his light and will avail by devotion in his absence the same as the availing of people from the (glow of) sun when clouds cover it...' (Ikmal-ud-Din, vol. 1, p. 253, with nearly similar meaning in Yanabir-ul-Mawaddah, p. 117)

Quran did mention the word Shia in several places specially while describing the story of Prophet Musa (a.s), 

"Surah Al-Qasas, Verse 15:

وَدَخَلَ الْمَدِينَةَ عَلَىٰ حِينِ غَفْلَةٍ مِّنْ أَهْلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيهَا رَجُلَيْنِ يَقْتَتِلَانِ هَٰذَا مِن شِيعَتِهِ وَهَٰذَا مِنْ عَدُوِّهِ فَاسْتَغَاثَهُ الَّذِي مِن شِيعَتِهِ عَلَى الَّذِي مِنْ عَدُوِّهِ فَوَكَزَهُ مُوسَىٰ فَقَضَىٰ عَلَيْهِ قَالَ هَٰذَا مِنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ عَدُوٌّ مُّضِلٌّ مُّبِينٌ

And he went into the city at a time of unvigilance on the part of its people, so he found therein two men fighting, one being of his party and the other of his foes, and he who was of his party cried out to him for help against him who was of his enemies, so Musa struck him with his fist and killed him. He said: This is on account of the Shaitan's doing; surely he is an enemy, openly leading astray."

Here Prophet Musa helped the person mentioned as his Shia, now in next verse the same person is discussed in a totally different manner:

See "Surah Al-Qasas, Verse 18"

I have no objection at all if you want to call yourself the Shia of Allah. Just know  that what is the "sirat (path)" of Allah, which you have to follow:

"Surah Ash-Shura, Verse 53:

صِرَاطِ اللَّهِ الَّذِي لَهُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ أَلَا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَصِيرُ الْأُمُورُ

The path of Allah, Whose is whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth; now surely to Allah do all affairs eventually come."

What has been prescribed for you is not the sirat of Allah, it is sirat al-mustaqeem.

"Surah Ash-Shura, Verse 52:

 وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهْدِي إِلَىٰ صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ

and most surely you show the way to the right path:"
