    • Ah interesting...I always said that ex-punks and anarchists would make some of the best Shi'i Muslims...out of curiosity, what subgenre did you belong to? (Anarcho-punk, Oi, Straight Edge, Hardcore etc.)?
    • I was like "Can the internet load faster so I can give a Salawat?"
    • Symposium 'Is Israel Setup For Destruction?' Ahmed Deedat and former US congressman Paul Findley (circa 1989)…fast forward to 2:25:45 Christian doctrine of PREMILLENNIALISM    
    • Salam Bro, What is Islam?  Total submission to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  Do we agreed to this simple definition?  What kind submission we are talking about? It is only limited to intention???and the rest in our own?  The whole of our existence is for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Islam is complete in all sense, a way of life that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) already made for mankind.  Everything that covers all our actions (including intention) from the moment we are born until we die.  How to sleep, eat, drink, think, .... everything... all covered under complete religion named Islam.  When we were baby, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) take command of our souls until we are able to take care of our ownself.  Even knowledge to go to moon and solution to Covid19 covered by Islam.   Do we have choices to deviate when we submit to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)?  If we lack the knowledge in anything issue, we need to refer to the City of Knowledge (The Prophet (saw)).  Bottom line, we should show struggle not to deviate, if we are substandard in our daily actions, we make tawbah on daily basis.  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) loves those who make taubah. The other day I was having discussion with my friend.  What actually free will?  We actually have choices, follow or not to follow Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  Submit to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or not to submit to His Wills.  This only happen one time. The moment we decide to submit to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) (real submission, not lip services), we are done with our free will. If we choose Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), then we are submitting our will to His WIlls.  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will reveal his planning for us and define our roles.  Meaning whatever Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will in His plan of us is what we will do.  We listen and we obey.  We have to perform prayers, fasting... all other rituals....(common rituals).  How to walk, sleep, eat...everything else are covered under his plan. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has indeed specify a role for everybody based on individual capacities/capabilities.  It it our job to find our roles in submitting to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  Those who understand their roles and follow it will get Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) help.  Just like all the Prophets in the past, they all were having roles and they did not deviate.  That was why they were Prophet. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Just.  He plan every single human a role that the person can perform.  And we are tested on our roles. If we don't know our roles coming to the world then we are loss (like in stated in Surah Asr).  Can we ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to know about it?  Yes.  Some general  roles are given (but not specific).  Example, we are required to wait, prepare and assist Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام).  Many people know about it. How to be specific?  Then we have to be Mutaqqi and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) surely will inform us.   If we still get stuck in finding our roles... then we have our Ulil Amr.  Get closer and they will inform us (read surah Al-Fatiha...the opening for everthing).   Maybe the verses below can guide us a bit. قُلْ إِنَّ صَلَاتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ {162} [Shakir 6:162] Say. Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ ۖ وَبِذَٰلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ {163} [Shakir 6:163] No associate has He; and this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who submit. قُلْ أَغَيْرَ اللَّهِ أَبْغِي رَبًّا وَهُوَ رَبُّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ ۚ وَلَا تَكْسِبُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ إِلَّا عَلَيْهَا ۚ وَلَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَىٰ ۚ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ {164} [Shakir 6:164] Say: What! shall I seek a Lord other than Allah? And He is the Lord of all things; and no soul earns (evil) but against itself, and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another; then to your Lord is your return, so He will inform you of that in which you differed. وَهُوَ الَّذِي جَعَلَكُمْ خَلَائِفَ الْأَرْضِ وَرَفَعَ بَعْضَكُمْ فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ دَرَجَاتٍ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ فِي مَا آتَاكُمْ ۗ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ سَرِيعُ الْعِقَابِ وَإِنَّهُ لَغَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ {165} [Shakir 6:165] And He it is Who has made you successors in the land and raised some of you above others by (various) grades, that He might try you by what He has given you; surely your Lord is quick to requite (evil), and He is most surely the Forgiving, the Merciful.     Mutaqqi is a person who does not deviate (in their belief and action) when they "see and holding on onto" the truth....  (my understanding).  All truth is from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Wallahualam
    • @Ali bin Hussein, @Zaidismprior to hearing it from you two...I automatically assumed that Zaydiyyah (alongside Twelvers and Dawoodi Bohras/Musta‘lī Ismāʿīlīs) maintained a balanced spiritual tradition between bāṭin and zāhir expressions...is what you're representing here (i.e. Shia Chat) typical or representative of classical Zaydi thought or has it been influenced by modern Salafism?
