    • There are reasons why Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) instructed us to be with those who He has bestowed Favors, Ahlulbayt. They are inheritors of knowledge on how to understand Word of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) (Qur'an) and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). There know how to address or call Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in a proper manner as a Pure Slave. Do we know better on how to address Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in making duas or in salah or any other rituals? If we don't understand Qur'an  (words of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)) fully without the help of Ahlulbayt, how can we know fully to address Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) , who is the Author of Qur'an. That is the reason why Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) want us to be with those who He has bestowed favors. The question is how to be with those who Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has favored.  The world is so big and people are spread on the earth.  Not all have access to real knowledge, especially simple people. Physical Imams are not accessible. If they call the Imams to supplicate on their behalf (spiritual call) because they believed Imams know better then themselves to address Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), that is one way to be with the Imams with all the lacking that every human is.  Just like salah, we give salam to Prophet and His Family.
    • How could you possibly be any more out to lunch? This isn't true of the majority of Shias nor Muslims more generally. Then you have the gall to say this: Embarrassing. You're consistently the worst-mannered user on SC. You actively provoke people with conjectural anecdotal arguments about the quality of the Shia community in properly practicing their deen. You're even worse than eThErEaL in this regard. Instead you could be taking the time to speak your peace and promote what you believe to be the truth of the matter. As Mahdavist said, by showing people what is foreign to the teachings of Rasulullah (s) and the Imams (a). All other comments and quips are totally unnecessary.
    • Well to me it is absolutely shocking and disturbing that any Muslim can believe there is an equal to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم Of course, I believe it is impossible for any non-prophet to be equal, let alone superior, to any Prophet. The smallest of the Prophets is superior to the greatest non-Prophet in rank. Notice that when Allah Most High mentions the four categories upon which He has bestowed favor, the first category is that of the Prophets, followed by the Siddiqin, then the Martyrs, then the Pious (Surah 4:69). That right there plainly indicates that the Prophets are the most superior creation of Allah Most High, and that the smallest Prophet is superior to the greatest Siddiq non-Prophet
    • I think Imam Ali is the wali of the Prophet. However, I find it absurd to say Wilayah was the main message of the Prophet's mission. What were the pagan Arabs opposing? Were they opposing oneness of Allah the or wilayah of Ali? These extreme opinions are a function of polemics during the Golden Period when one party countered the other party's extremism (Nasb) with extremism of their own (Ghuluw).
