  1. Past hour
  2. Same with Uthman lots of sahaba and followers hated and cursed him Ibn tamiyyah was obsessed with debating Shias he wasted his talents really
  3. Imamate has been mentioned as a divine covenant in Qur'an. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) took the test of Prophet Ibrahim (عليه السلام) prior to granting him the Imamah. Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 124: وَإِذِ ابْتَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ رَبُّهُ بِكَلِمَاتٍ فَأَتَمَّهُنَّ قَالَ إِنِّي جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَامًا قَالَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي قَالَ لَا يَنَالُ عَهْدِي الظَّالِمِينَ And when his Lord tried Ibrahim with certain words, he fulfilled them. He said: Surely I will make you an Imam of men. Ibrahim said: And of my offspring? My covenant does not include the unjust, said He. (English - Shakir)
  4. This narration is against Qur'an: And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge...6/108 The above narration also is not mutawatir and besides, it is mistranslated. Here, باهتوهم means "astounding them by presenting strong arguments": الوقيعة في الناس: الغيبة. والظاهر أن المراد بالمباهتة الزامهم بالحجج القاطعة .... From al-Kafi (footnotes)
  5. For all those who want to know & learn about the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), (those who are mentioned as ulil amr & whose obedience is obligatory as per Qur'an), should start their journey with hadith e kisa specifically the phrase "innahum minni wa ana minhum".
  6. I have no affiliation with the Mehdi Army or Sayyid Sadr but I do admire him, and agree with him, and you act more like a nationalist than someone actually concerned with the teachings of this religion and the justice we as the Shia of Ali must uphold
  7. Did the previous Prophets (عليه السلام) have the final and complete version of the religion of Allah? If the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is the final Prophet, then doesn't it logically follow, that he completed all of the details and laws of the religion of Allah? So if somone is preaching and guiding the masses to the laws and details of the final and completed version, then wouldn't that make them of a higher status then those that came before everything was finalized? Isn't the expert that speaks on the completed version more important, than the one who spoke about the previous, incomplete version? Same logic as above, right?
  8. Time to permanently fix these tongues: "Shaheed Thalith Allamah Nurullah Shustari writes: "He was one of the greatest companions and is reckoned among the foremost of the companions who embraced Islam. In embracing Islam his number was third, that is, he embraced Islam after Mother of the Faithful Khadijahtul Kubra and Commander of the Faithful Ali. According to the author of "Isti'ab" he was distinguished in knowledge, austerity, piety and truthfulness, among all the companions. Ali has said that Abu Dharr achieved that position in the acquisition and comprehension of religious learnings which nobody else could reach. The Holy Prophet used to say, "Abu Dharr is like Prophet Isa in my ummah. Abu Dharr possesses the same austerity as Prophet Isa had". According to a tradition one who wants to see the modesty of Prophet Isa should see Abu Dharr. Shaykh Saduq in his book “Uyunul Akhbar ar-Ridha” writes that Imam Ali ar-Ridha (a) has said from the authority of his forefathers that according to the hadith of the Holy Prophet, "Abu Dharr is the truthful person of this ummah". Ali says that Abu Dharr is the only person who will never care for any reproaches about Allah and His orders and commands, that is, he will say whatever is right and will act upon it, and will neither care for any threats in this connection, nor will he be over-awed by the power of the government. Scholars have written that Abu Dharr had sworn allegiance to the Prophet (s) with the promise that in the faith of Allah he would not care for any reproacher and that he would speak out the truth howmuchsoever bitter it might be. Truthfulness and courage is a quality which even the greatest personalities do not hold fast. The Holy Prophet (s) has prophesied this quality of Abu Dharr and said that Abu Dharr would perform a great role in this matter and will remain steadfast even in the face of severe persecution which he had to bear. The Prophet said: "There is nobody more truthful than Abu Dharr between the canopy of the sky and the carpet of the Earth".1 In the elucidation of this hadith Allamah Subaiti writes: “The Holy Prophet addressing his companions said, "O my companions! Who is one out of you who will meet me on the Day of Reckoning in the same condition in which I leave him in the world?” On hearing this everyone kept quiet, except Abu Dharr who spoke that it was he. The Holy Prophet said, "No doubt! You are true". After that he added, "O my companions! Remember what I am telling you. There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr".2 Allamah Majlisi has written some narratives after having quoted the above mentioned tradition in his book Hayat ul-Qulub. Ibn Babwayh has narrated on reliable authority that somebody asked Imam al-Sadiq if Abu Dharr was better than the Ahlul Bayt of the Holy Prophet or otherwise. The Imam said, "How many months are there in a year?" He answered, "Twelve". The Imam said, "How many of these months are respectable and sanctified?" He said, "Four months? The Imam asked, "Is Ramadhan also included in those four months?" He said "No". The Imam asked “Is Ramzan better or those four months?" He answered, "The month of Ramzan is better". The Imam said, “The same is the case with us, the Ahlul Bayt. You cannot compare anybody with us". One day Abu Dharr was sitting in the company of people who were describing the virtues of this nation. Abu Dharr said, "Ali is best of all in this nation, and he is the apportioner of Heaven and Hell, the Siddiq and Farooq of the ummah and, the divine proof for this nation". Hearing it from him those hypocrites turned their faces from him and refuting his statement called him a liar. At once Abu Amamah rose from there, went to the Holy Prophet and told him what Abu Dharr had said, and how that group had refused to accept it. The Holy Prophet (s) said, "There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr". The same book has narrated on another authority that somebody asked Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a) if that was an authentic hadith wherein the Holy Prophet (s) has declared like this. The Imam said, "Yes". He said, "Then what positions do the Holy Prophet, Ali, Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn hold?" The Imam replied, "We are like the month of Ramadhan which contains one such night the worship of which is equal to that of one thousand months while the rest of the companions are like the respected month in relation to other months, and nobody can be compared with us, the Ahlul Bayt". It becomes as clear as day light from the above mentioned hadith of the Holy Prophet that Abu Dharr was second to none in truthfulness. The commentary and the elucidation of the same hadith as made by Subaiti, describes that Abu Dharr will leave the world in the same condition, in which the Prophet had left him, and will see him in the same condition in the Hereafter. If it is looked into deeply, Abu Dharr's firm stand on the path which had been strengthened by the Holy Prophet (s) reveals his important virtue. Scholars agree on the point that Abu Dharr did not swerve an inch from the path of the Holy Prophet. After the Prophet even a companion like Salman was forced to swear allegiance and was so much beaten in the masjid one day that his neck became swollen. But Abu Dharr was never found silent." https://www.al-Islam.org/the-great-companion-of-Prophet-Abu-dharr/chapter-6 Interestingly, a similar hadith which mentions Abu Dharr (رضي الله عنه) as Isa (عليه السلام) of Ummah is also present in Sahih Tirmidhi.
  9. You just uses Sadr picture as your profile picture it doesn’t prove your connection to Sadrist or Imam Mahdi Army also I never talked about it but your enmity toward Iran completely match with Wahhabists & Zionists
  10. Yes. I did want to mention that as well, but then again, there are so many things one can say.
  11. Badr organization assistated the invaders Mehdi Army fought the invaders but all you can say is Zionist to wipe away the truth.
  12. Surah An-Nisa, Verse 150: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْفُرُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يُفَرِّقُوا بَيْنَ اللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيَقُولُونَ نُؤْمِنُ بِبَعْضٍ وَنَكْفُرُ بِبَعْضٍ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَّخِذُوا بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا Surely those who disbelieve in Allah and His apostles and (those who) desire to make a distinction between Allah and His apostles and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and desire to take a course between (this and) that. (English - Shakir) Surah An-Nisa, Verse 151: أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ حَقًّا وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَذَابًا مُّهِينًا These it is that are truly unbelievers, and We have prepared for the unbelievers a disgraceful chastisement. (English - Shakir) These two verses are giving a precise answer to your question.
  13. I'm not sure which version you are using. I think it's safe to call it a version rather than a translation. Khalifa says gentiles, Pickthall, Sherali, and Yusufali use the word unlettered. Shakir mentions Mecca. but none of these go into expanded detail. Some say to teach them, "the book", the others say "scriptures", yours' is the only time I've seen "Heavenly book" which, of course, would imply the revelation of the Qur'an, which was not yet available, so what scriptures?. Not a lot of love for Jews in this Surah. I'm not aware of any time Muhammad took the time to teach Jews anything. There are a few mentions of contact, or confront, but no mention of anything more than a fleeting conversation. It's also the only version I've seen where "polytheism" is used. I don't see that in direct translation from the Arabic into English either. The word is simply not there. It begs the question, Why is it there in this version? The sermon on the mount is an example of a messenger teaching the Jews. I'm not aware of anyone else trying. Whatever/whomever...it didn't work.
  14. How so?  Hinduism is not a religion. In fact Hindu means a person who lives in Hind, it's rather a nationality. Muslim invaders called the country Hind because of the river sindhu. Later people of Bharata (India) under the influence of Muslim than British first become Hind later India. Religion of people of Bharata is Sanatan Dharma and this religion is nothing but monotheism, in their scripture it is written "there exist no one except the One."
  15. I don’t have no word who insults to Shia martyrs & repeats Zionists propaganda
  16. Al-Tijani's books (or at least Then I Was guided) has too many weak arguments including an example of a false reference (attributing a Shi'I source to a Sunni scholar to bolster a point), so it doesn't offer much in terms of honest academic discussion when trying to seek the truth. The Qur'an is the main thing that I would suggest reading since if that cannot guide one to Tashayyu, why should one use other books unless to imply the book of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is deficient?
  17. Are you familiar with Solagh who over saw operations in Abu Ghraib? Iraq's take over was a coordinated effort.
  18. Today
  19. Read the Qur'an and go to where the clear unambiguous text guides you
  20. You may see more of this in coming days. Playing with emotions of people will get you votes and Modi doesn't want to lose.
  21. Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, “Bihar al-Anwar” Vol 26, pg 82: "On the whole, after admission of the fact that the Imams are not Prophets, we are bound to acknowledge the fact that they are superior to all Prophets and legatees except our Prophet (salutations and peace upon him and his family). To our knowledge there is no reason not to describe the Imams as Prophets except consideration to the status of the Final Prophet. Our intellect too, cannot perceive a distinction between Prophet-hood and Imamah." Al-Sayed Amir Muhammad Kadhim Qazwini, “Al-Shia Fi Aqa’idihim Wa Ahkamihim” pg 73: "Because they deserved the higher rank which is Imamah, then by default they deserve the lower rank of Prophet-hood. The fact that they deserve it is established for the Imams of the prophetic household (عليه السلام) but the only preventative was the rank of ‘seal of Prophets’ that was awarded to our messenger (SAW)" --- Bit of a strawman to mention that Hadith. Using the conditional 'If' does not make Umar the recipient of divine revelation or miraculous power to the extent of Prophets Bi'ithinillah, rather it just means his character and/or judgement are akin to those of Prophets. This is like how the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said to Ali that he is to him like Haroon (عليه السلام) is to Musa (عليه السلام) - it is a compliment of character and the task that Ali was undertaking in staying behind rather than going on an expedition.
  22. This statement is a bit odd as as it publicly condones private insults. I don't see how this helps.
  23. “Are We Saving Nukes For Diwali?” Referring to India’s festival of lights, Diwali, Modi boasted that India’s 140 nuclear warheads are not just for a fireworks show. The comments come less than a week after Modi threatened Pakistan with the “mother of nuclear bombs.” https://www.ccn.com/India-deadly-nukes-Pakistan-modi-sri-lanka-attacks/amp
