Taquia

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Selam alikum, could someone please explain for the Sunnis what exactly Taquia is and when/how it should be used? I'm shia and know a little about it and have never had to use it. However, many sunnis assume that shiasm is based on Taquia and I don't know where they get this idea. Please clear this up for them for me.

there's a pinned thread that links to the shi'ite encyclopedia. In that there's at least one part that covers taqiyya. They can just read that, as can you. I'm leaving this thread open, but I think it's redundant, and may be closed in future.

    • If one turns to Jesus for a favor, I don't see how or why God should resent it. You see, SoP, asking someone for a favor does not mean that you worship him. Asking someone for something just means that you consider him capable of fulfilling your wish. That is all. It does not mean you necessarily equate him to God. So personally I would have no problem if a Christian (or even a Muslim) asks Jesus for something. Asking Jesus for something is no different to asking your boss to give you a salary raise or a promotion. Why do you ask your boss? Why don't you just ask God for a promotion and leave it at that? You ask your boss because you know that your boss will be able to fulfill your wish. Similarly, if you believe that Jesus, because of his close relationship to God, will be able to fulfill your wish, I find no problem your asking Jesus for a favor. Asking for something is not the same as worshiping. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. A lot of people make a lot of fuss on this topic. But to me it is perfectly OK. 
    • The Saudis have no shame in declaring that they are pro-Israel and anti-Shia: https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047348,00.html   https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047289,00.html
    • Brother, all Muslim women who don't observe Hijab know that it's Wajib. They all know that it's in Quran. Your approach should be changed. When I said be nice to her, I mean be super nice. For example, see what she likes to drink in the morning. Wake up early, GI to kitchen, make a perfect coffee or whatever and go to her room and give it to her. You should try hard. It's a Jihad. You can also peel fruit and give it to her during the day. She should feel that her brother is supportive and trustful first. I know you are good to her now, but for a big change like Hijab observation, you should try harder. When I was back in Iran, I used to do similar things for my mother, and it affects on the person. I made breakfast and gave it to my mum on her bed when she woke up. I didn't do that to ask my mum to do sth, I did that because I love my mum. I realized that women like it. After several months of supporting and being nice, you can gradually start talking about Hijab. That time you can be HOPEFUL to see some small changes in her dress style (maybe wearing long shorts or leggings instead of short ones). Regardless of whatever result you'll get, you did your effort and Jihad. If it's a small change, you should be proud of yourself. 
    • 1. The narrations from Ahl albaayt AS indicate the permission of wearing black clothes in  month of Muharram  for the  mourning for Imam Hussein over the calamities  faced by him 2.  The views of ulema indicate that the black clothes are not permissible while praying. The simple question arises here does it mean that the praying during the month of Muharram with black clothes is Makrooh . haram? Similarly, if the Kaaba is clothed black in all does it mean that all the persons praying there have makrooh  prayers because of black Kaaba? would you please like to clarify? wasalam
    • See this http://holywatcher.narod.ru/iblis.pdf Very dangerous path.  They keep saying that Iblis did not prostrate because he did not want to worship other than Allah. However the Quran, and Iblis' response in the Quran is not so! Iblis says in the Quran that he did not prostrate because Adam a.s. was made of 'mud' ... in essence saying he is higher... or in other terminology known as 'Racism' and Arrogance.  So why and where on earth are these people forcing the image that Iblis acted out of love for God?? Completely absurd.  @Haydar Husayn
