    • Salam,  It may be the case that what appears as "unseen" for us might not be unseen for others. Like heaven, hell, sidratul muntaha etc, these are the unseen. Every Prophet, from Adam to Jesus (and obviously to the last Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) are unseen for us. Is there anything unseen for God? Nothing, for He is the A'alim ul Ghaib. And there is none who can stop Him from informing whatever He decide to disclose to His Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).    What I think is that there is a verse in Quran, chapter 96 verse 5:    What is the sphere & limits of phrase "ma lam ya'lam" (what he knew not)? The word (عَلَّمَ) Allama is فعل ماض so it cannot represent the development & growth of human knowledge in future generations. So there are some people, perhaps the chosen ones, who have been taught by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) what they knew not.  Apart from that, we believe that Quran contains knowledge of everything,    And we also believe that there exist some "mutahharoon" who have access to the book:   The very being of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) can also be understood as "Kitab". It was nothing but his purified heart which received this honored Quran.  So before getting into this delicate discussion, I suggest all friends here to start with what is "ilm"? Furthermore, I would also like to ask questions about the knowledge of Hazrat Khidr (عليه السلام) as mentioned in chapter 18 of Quran. He punctured the boat, killed the boy and repaired a wall and after doing all that he said "وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي" (I did it not of my own accord). The interesting phrases in that story:   فَأَرَدْتُ أَنْ أَعِيبَهَا (I wished that I should damage it) فَأَرَدْنَا أَنْ يُبْدِلَهُمَا رَبُّهُمَا  (So we desired that their Lord might give them in his place) فَأَرَادَ رَبُّكَ ( so your Lord desired) It is interesting that Khidr (عليه السلام) (who was mentioned as abd by Allah to whom He has granted knowledge & mercy 18:65) was with a Ulil Azm Nabi famous as "Kaleemullah", yet kaleemullah never knew the ways how Khidr (عليه السلام) was able to establish communication with his Lord to find out what Lord desired, neither was able to see any angle bringing the message of Lord (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to Khidr (عليه السلام). 18:65 itself is a very interesting verse:   This verse mentions Khidr (عليه السلام) as an Abd from Ibadena (a plural of Abd), so there may be other abd of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) too to whom He has granted the knowledge from Him. And it can also be viewed in light of the verse 96:5 which says "taught men what he knew not".  In the last, I would also like to quote words from a famous hadith in which Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said "Ana madinatul ilm (I am the city of knowledge)". Now who can understand & calculate the vastness & depth of this city. It is therefore not suitable for ignorant people like us to speak any words about the knowledge of Madinatul ilm (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) & bab-e-madinatul ilm (عليه السلام) as well.  Wassalam.  
    • You do Hajj which is Tawassul of Ibrahim, but you say Allah dislikes if someone says Ya Ibrahim Madad. Make dua bro and say to Allah, I dislike cirmumbulating kaba, it's like saying Ya Ibrahim Madad. You are in tawassul everytime, Quran is given by means of Muhammad deny it. Imam Ali's narrations on jurisprudence and judicial and political narrations are tawassul. Deny them, make you own Deen and seek Allah directly if you are so sure about your piety. 
    • @AkhiraisReal The very first picture isn’t infrared.
    • Just to add, I don't understand the distinction you've made here. Making a supplication for the Prophet would be saying something like "Oh Allah send by salaams to the Prophet" But this isn't what is happening when we say "Peace be upon you oh Messenger" This quite clearly seems to me like we are supplicating (your understanding of supplication, which is supernatural calling) to the Prophet, not for the Prophet. In other words, we are clearly addressing the Prophet here.  Also, keep in mind as well that I could have the intention that me sending salaam to the Prophet is benefitting me, because I know the Prophet will return the salaam. So, I am calling to other than Allah to gain benefit.
    • I'm not doing things differently that's your misunderstanding. I already gave you plenty of evidence, just bring one hadith which says Sahaba who took name "Wa Muhammada" so that Prophet Mubammad ask Allah to reduce their grief and console them-is wrong, I will gradually accept your point.  But if you can't, and know that intercession is part of our religion and that Prophet and Aimah are Shaheed and you call them as a living person, you show back to these verses then please. Don't give twist and turns and come back with same argument. Quran does not limit intercession to Prophet till he is alive show me any verse which says don't go to Prophet after death and seek wasilah. You seek wasilah of stones of Hazrat Ibrahim but disregard prophets. How wonderful of you. Why do Sae and tawaf? Of stone made buildings and kiss Hajr-e-Aswad just deny it. And, God will show you respect when you die. Know that to Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Ibrahim's sincerity is more previous then Kaaba. So, God will show you respect while you accept intercession of Kaba but not those who protected it. 
    • I think @guest 2025 is on to something. We believe that God is a living active God.  He communicated in the past and as comunication is in his character he must still be communicating today.  I come to God each day expecting God to speak with me and answer my questions and deal with my doubts. As a follower of Jesus I believe that it is through Jesus and his life, teaching, death and resurrection that we see and understand the truth and answers to our life's questions, doubts and fears.
    • @Northwest the second picture looks more like a bird not a drone or missile. I don't understand why it's encircled. As for the claims of a missile, why is it only visible through infrared? Looks like the video has been edited....
    • Please list them and inshaAllah whoever can share some information or insight will try and do so. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide us all. 
    • @Flying_Eagle like I said, the ma'soomeen (عليه السلام) have taught us how to supplicate (long and short supplications) in the same way as they have taught us so many other things. I strive to try and follow their teachings. If you want to do things differently then it's your decision, I prefer to follow what has been taught by our guides (عليه السلام)
    • I don't know which country this is and what were the actual situations in which the person was forced to bribe but having lived and worked in Pakistan all my life I haven't had to bribe anyone until now Alhumdollilah. May Allah never put me in a situation in the future where I am forced to do so. Let me add that it's not that I have led a very sheltered life where things were handed to me on a plate. I have been involved in properties matters, buying cars, gotten lots of paperwork done for various issues.  I think as we near the end of times more so than ever we need to trim and roll back our dunya affairs(properties, businesses etc) to save ourselves from sinning. It's going to get more and more difficult to hold on to faith as time goes by and expanding worldly affairs is one potential pitfall. It's mostly in property and financial matters that money exchanges hands illegally. So involve yourself in only what is essential and be prepared to walk away from status and position if it involves haram at any step. This is the only way to gain salvation.

      World Suicide Prevention Day is a yearly event on September 10. If you are having suicidal thoughts, please reach out for help. If you know someone is having suicidal thoughts, reassure them, support them, and encourage them to seek professional help. There are people who are willing to listen. Suicide is never the right thing to do.

      My Rab! For the sake of Hazrat Ayub (عليه السلام), help me to recover from this illness. I caused myself a great misery but I had no other choice for I do not have knowledge of the secrets but my calculations. I tried to protect everyone by relinquishing my own desires so look at my sincerity and heal me for the sake of Patience of Syeda Zahra (عليه السلام) which she endured with broken ribs.

      Stress can worsen illness or even trigger it; stop worrying or you can make yourself sick.

      Ya Rab! Whenever we get something without an effort, we forget its importance but when we lose it, we remember what we have missed. This happens because of pride and which lead us to look down upon it. I have been a convict of you, for not respecting your love and attention towards me and have led Shaitan to poise my ears, thus, preventing me to respect you which lies in worship. I am lazy worshipper but I have not ruled out your importance for me, and have not ruled out the fact that you deserve every praise and humility and submission but the issue is "who is gonna make me realise, how shall you be thanked?" I know that you are not in need of my thanks but I'm in need of your attention, and the problem is you don't pay attention to who is not sincere. Thus, first rule to sincerity for the beggar is to thank the benefactor. So make me humble towards you by reminding me all the beneficience you showed towards me, and make me humble to yourself more than my self and my parents  for if If I do not learn the way, I'm doomed. Teach me your right over me and do not caste me away because of my sins.
