    • @313_Waiter, I always thought he was an initiate of Ikhwān as-Ṣafā...I stand corrected...thanks for correcting me. @Ashvazdanghe, found this on Wikipedia..."A number of theories have been proposed regarding Avicenna's madhab (school of thought within Islamic jurisprudence). Medieval historian Ẓahīr al-dīn al-Bayhaqī (d. 1169) considered Avicenna to be a follower of the Brethren of Purity. On the other hand, Dimitri Gutas along with Aisha Khan and Jules J. Janssens demonstrated that Avicenna was a Sunni Hanafi. Avicenna studied Hanafi law, many of his notable teachers were Hanafi jurists, and he served under the Hanafi court of Ali ibn Mamun. Avicenna said at an early age that he remained "unconvinced" by Ismaili missionary attempts to convert him. However, the 14th century Shia faqih Nurullah Shushtari according to Seyyed Hossein Nasr, claimed he was a Twelver Shia. Conversely, Sharaf Khorasani, citing a rejection of an invitation of the Sunni Governor Sultan Mahmoud Ghazanavi by Avicenna to his court, believes that Avicenna was an Ismaili. Similar disagreements exist on the background of Avicenna's family, whereas most writers considered them Sunni, recent Shiite writers contested that they were Shia."
    • Bismehe Ta3ala  Assalam Alikum  Since we are talking about fiqh issues, when fasting in the month of Ramadhan, one of the rulings to break your fast is if you falsely contribute a hadith to Allah, Rasoul Allah and to the Imams, your fast becomes invalid.   (C) Moral/Ethical 10. Kizb (lying) of the highest type —falsely attributing a statement to Allah, the Prophets, and the Imams— makes the fast invalid. Remember that these actions only make the fast invalid (batil) if they are done knowingly and intentionally. But if it is done unknowingly or by mistake, then the fast is still valid. https://www.al-islam.org/fasting-ramadhan-simple-guide-ritual-social-spiritual-dimensions-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi/things M3 Salamah, Fe Amin Allah
    • Salam, I am aware of Hirsi Ali's stance. My aim was to highlight the process that results in people like her. Tarek Fatah is a Canadian-Pakistani "modernist" whose self-professed aim is to "reform" Islam, which, in his praxis, translates to siding with the neoconservative/far-right anti-Muslim narrative. He regularly writes for neocon/far-right/new atheist anti-Muslim outlets. His viewpoints are the same as Tawhidi's- casting doubts on core tenets of the faith and validating Western anti-Muslim narratives to win their approval, except that he doesn't claim to be a "scholar" like Tawhidi. Wiladah of Ameer ul-Mu'mineen (عليه السلام) mubarak to everyone!!
    • The material that the turbah is made of is valid for tayammum to be performed upon. However, as far as I am concerned, one turbah is insufficient. You need to find something, like dirt for example, that the entire of both hands can be placed upon simultaneously. 
    • Even Abbas (عليه السلام) - the son of Ali (عليه السلام) was enough to face the entire enemy of Yezid and destroy it single handedly. That's why Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) never allowed him to fight and took his sword away from him because otherwise the result of the battle would have been much different. Yezid's army itself had the greatest fear of Abbas (عليه السلام). The fact that he was able to reach Furat River pushing away hundreds, if not thousands of Yezidi soldiers, without even using a sword is indicative of  his super-human warrior skills. If this is the son, imagine how the father would be like.
