  2. As a Muslim I know for how far I've been educated about Islamic History is that the Quran was originally an Oral Recitation process just like the previous revelations of Allah where Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) recited a Quranic verse from Allah to his Sahaabas (Companions) piece by piece and his followers from which they memorized the Oral Recitation of all 6236 verses of The Quran began the process of writing it down through a pen and paper format. So it was a simple process. From Oral to Written. Similar to how you record down a dying man's last saying in writing. He says to you, "Tell my wife I love her" and wants you to record his saying down in writing. Done deal. Many Non-Muslims speculate and have their doubts about how the Quran was preserved through all this arduous process, but as a Muslim I do believe that ALL Verses of The Quran in its "written state" are 100% the exact same as how it was Orally Recited through Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). So I have no doubts about that. https://www.al-islam.org/collection-and-preservation-quran-sayyid-abu-al-qasim-al-khoei https://www.al-islam.org/prophethood-and-prophet-islam-ayatullah-ibrahim-amini/revelation-and-preservation-quran The ordering of The Chapters on the other hand comes into contention where there were Quranic manuscripts/codexes where the Chapters are in differing orders. https://www.islamic-awareness.org/quran/text/mss/ https://www.missionislam.com/quran/revealationorder.htm http://tanzil.net/docs/revelation_order Is it true that Surah Al-Alaq which is the 96th Chapter of The Quran the vast majority of Muslims have nowadays is the 1st Chapter that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) originally based on his meeting of The Archangel Gabriel/Jibrael (عليه السلام) reciting the first ayat of Surah Al-Alaq which starts with the Arabic word "Iqra"? No other Chapters in The Quran starts out with the word "Iqra" except Surah Al-Alaq. So why is Surah Al-Alaq not the 1st Chapter of The Quran the vast majority of Muslims have nowadays? There's even this discussion and debate about The Quranic Manuscript Controversy where Ali ibne Abi Tablib (عليه السلام) wrote down his codex of The Quran where the Chapters and Verses are in order of how they were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) originally from Allah. So why are the Muslim Ummah not using Ali ibne Abi Talib (AS)'s codex of The Quran? Instead the vast majority of Muslims have The Third Caliph Uthman's codex of The Quran where the Chapters are in differing orders. So I have a few issues regarding this issue of the relation between the Verses and The Chapters of The Quran. We all know that Surah Al-Fatiha is the 1st Chapter based on Uthman's codex of The Quran which the vast majority of Muslims have as the standard manuscript of The Quran. We also know furthermore, that there are 7 total verses in Surah Al-Fatiha. However, if we Muslims are well aware of Surah Al-Fatiha NOT being The 1st Chapter of The Quran as it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and instead was the 5th Chapter, then what would be so wrong REARRANGING The Chapters of The Quran strictly in the way how they were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) originally? We Muslims have this information. So why not study it further and see if The Quran can be re-compiled in a codex to fit exactly how it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) originally? I'm not trying to make any implications that The Quran is altered or changed or whatever. The Quran's Ayats are preserved 100% therefore it is Complete. All 6236 of them. I haven't denied that. However, The Surahs are in a completely different order. If we were to Rearrange the Chapters of The Quran such as Surah Al-Fatiha as the 5th Chapter as it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) then how would it affect its 7 total Verses in The Quran? Does Surah Al-Fatiha have more than 7 verses? No. I do somewhat understand why this is a touchy issue though for the Muslim Ummah as the idea of Rearranging The Chapters of The Quran would imply that the Rearrangement of the Verses of The Quran also needs to be done in Revelation Order for how they were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and further Islamic Historical Research needs to be done to evaluate which Verses came after the First Verse which is "Iqra". So if one were to Rearrange All 114 Chapters it would only be fair to Rearrange All 6236 verses of The Quran with respect to The Chapters. So, hypothetically speaking, Surah Al-Baqarah's verses containing a total of 286 from the Quran the vast majority of Muslims have might not have exactly 286 verses how it was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). It might have only 256 verses, hypothetically speaking, while the 30 verses after it might belong in a different Chapter. All in all, I shall await for Imam Muhammad Al-Mahdi (عليه السلام) to bring the Quran that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) chronologically throughout his life.
  3. i think that Mayweather might have a weak spot for that guy because he supposedly was a porn actor, and Mayweather is into the business of pimping if I remember correctly
  4. If you read surat munafiqun (the hypocrites) you will see that people change. Allah talks about them that they believed and then they stopped believing. At the same time God even talks about prophet mohamed having been lost (dhl) and then he was guided. So in terms of God's guidance people can definitely change according to Islam, and what change is more important than that. That is because they believed, and then they disbelieved; so their hearts were sealed over, and they do not understand. Munafiqun : 3 In other words, they were mumin then became kafir
  5. i haven't and have wondered the same several times. Are they really 313?
  6. The problem with intercession is that some few shias are taking it to extreme levels. Hence why we are being called kafirs by other sects.
  7. Yes, but how do you know they can hear your call and that they will intercede for you?
  8. Salaam, “And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not.” 2:154
  9. Most likely the method of performing the mutaa is not correct. Sahabas had a habit to find women for mutaa during expeditions. Since the number of women is limited, so they will try compete among each to get a women for mutaa. Competing between two men for one woman is not allowed because it will create jealousy and maybe figthing. Therefore, the Prophet made it haram to "compete for mutaa" among two muslims. Not to made the mutaa haram. Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3253: Rabi' b. Sabra reported that his father went on an expedition with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) during the Victory of Mecca, and we stayed there for fifteen days (i. e. for thirteen full days and a day and a night), and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) permitted us to contract temporary marriage with women. So I and another person of my tribe went out, and I was more handsome than he, whereas he was almost ugly. Each one of us had a cloaks, My cloak was worn out, whereas the cloak of my cousin was quite new. As we reached the lower or the upper side of Mecca, we came across a young woman like a young smart long-necked she-camel. We said: Is it possible that one of us may contract temporary marriage with you? She said: What will you give me as a dower? Each one of us spread his cloak. She began to cast a glance on both the persons. My companion also looked at her when she was casting a glance at her side and he said: This cloak of his is worn out, whereas my cloak is quite new. She, however, said twice or thrice: There is no harm in (accepting) this cloak (the old one). So I contracted temporary marriage with her, and I did not come out (of this) until Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) declared it forbidden. Who was the first person that forbid mutaa: Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3248: Ibn Uraij reported: 'Ati' reported that jibir b. Abdullah came to perform 'Umra, and we came to his abode, and the people asked him about different things, and then they made a mention of temporary marriage, whereupon he said: Yes, we had been benefiting ourselves by this temporary marriage during the lifetime of theHoly Prophet (may peace be upon him) and during the tinie of Abi! Bakr and 'Umar. Book 008, Number 3249: Jabir b. 'Abdullah reported: We contracted temporary marriage giving a handful of (tales or flour as a dower during the lifetime of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and durnig the time of Abu Bakr until 'Umar forbade it in the case of 'Amr b. Huraith
  10. thank you for your well wishes in the end. Amen! Your post is very long and not very direct, so I am sure that it is not just me who won't understand what points you are making. Let me give you advice on how to get through to people like me. Keep it simple, keep it direct. How? Post actual verses and hadiths that talk directly about "dua" and minimize your own opinions on the matter, and let the verses talk for themselves. Here is an example: My point: We should not call upon servants of Allah: Proof: إن الذين تدعون من دون الله عباد أمثالكم فادعوهم فليستجيبوا لكم إن كنتم صادقين Indeed, those you call upon (make duas to ) besides Allah are servants like you. So call upon them and let them respond to you, if you should be truthful. 7:194 Conclusion: I don't need to say anything after posting the above, because the topic of "dua" is addressed directly, and my point has a heavy proof to support it. I made my own grading system that will save you a lot of work! Just stick to the Quran verses and hadiths available, and you won't need to waste time on giving your own opinions anymore. Just see what Allah says on the topic of "dua" and you will find the truth coupled with hadiths about it in sha Allah. All the best and I look forward to your next more focused attempt. `Thank you

  13. "If our enemies besiege us economically, we are the children of Ramadan, And if they besiege us militarily, we are the children of 'Ashura." - Imam Khomeini (رضي الله عنه)
  14. Al- islam.org is very much clear on the topic of khums.. https://www.al-islam.org/shiite-encyclopedia/khums-one-fifth We read in the Holy Qur’an: Know that whatever of a thing you acquire, a fifth of it is for Allah, for the Messenger, for the near relative, and the orphans and the needy and they way farer ..... (Qur’an 8:41) Thus Khums (literally one fifth of gain) should go to six people: 1. Allah 2. His Messenger 3. The near relative of the Messenger (Ahlul-Bayt) 4. Orphan 5. needy 6. the person who has fallen away from his home-town (and has no money to comeback to his own place)
  15. Aren't there any hadiths from 12 Imams (عليه السلام) highlighting the topic of Khums for better understanding of this system ???
  16. Walaikum as sala Jazakallah and welcome back brother Nice to see you posting again.
  17. The supplications we receive from the Qur'an and from the ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) are directly and exclusively to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Therefore supplicating to Mary, Jesus, Mohammed (peace be upon all of them) or any one else is a practice that doesn't come from the Qur'an or from our narrations.
  18. Adding to this thread, I created a separate post but thought it'd be better I contribute to this one as well ________________ I've been having a discussion with another forum member on here regarding a video I came across by Dr. Robert Sapolsky. So far this seems to be the most rational explanation put forth explaining the creation/role of religion and a higher power within humans, from a biological/evolutionary perspective. As the saying goes "its all in your head" ..... maybe it actually is? I think disputing this worldview is a necessary aspect of any effective rebuttal against agnosticism/atheism. What are your thoughts? Quick 3 minute clip:
  19. Allahumma salli ala muhammadiw wa Ali muhammadin wa ajjil faraja hum Rabbinee lima anzalta ilayya min khayrin faqir Audhu billahi minash shaytanir rajeem دع كل الشتائم ضدي تُعاد سبعة أضعاف. Astaghfirillah Ya Allah, protect my sister from further harm and abuse Ya as-Sadiq, pray on my behalf, to Al-Haqq that my friend is guided to Islam and healed of her headaches. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Kadhim, pray to As-Sabur on my behalf that me and my brother in Islam are rewarded with a wife each and also that he can find the strength and to overcome his sadness. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Ridha, pray to Al-Wadud on my behalf that she gets peace of mind, verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) Ya Taqi, pray to Al Hakim on my behalf that my burden is lessened and I get the strength to take this deen and the sanctity of my life seriously. Verily with hardship comes ease. (إِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا - 94:6) I ask nothing more than for our happiness and wellbeing. May we all be protected from the plague by Your permission.
  20. you won't get far with that guy, he is fake insha'Allah & by Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) i will prove it. remember, Imam Ali as was struck by a Muslim, a fake.
  21. I have read hadith in Al-istabrar and man la yadur Hu Al fiqh The two authentic books of usool Hadith is from mola Ali ((عليه السلام)) with golden chain or narrators of ahle-bayt ((عليه السلام)) Where mola Ali ((عليه السلام)) says On the day of conquering the Khyber Rasool Allah((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).w) ordained for meat of domestic donkeys and mutta to be haraam Now I found this and I am shocked why our people don't know this
  22. All the wealth we have is Allahs. I depends how we use. All the power that exists is Allahs, how one uses is where one gets caught
  23. Mayweather is the enemy of Islam, he might be your best ever, they do that to make you think they care whilst in reality Mayweather is a slave just like the very same police working for the same team. police kill, mayweather type bury, mind remain ignorant & it votes for that guy who makes his money through blood spilling rituals.
  24. Salam, In Jawahir al-Kalam the author quote al-Saduq saying that the order is al-Qadr in the first and al-Ikhlas in the second. http://alhawzaonline.com/almaktaba-almakroaa/book/216-feqh/216-feqh al-sheaa/0125-jwaher alkalaam/09/09.htm
  25. I feel Shia need to education and of good standard. Promote good scholars who truly teach real Islam. Don't complete Sunni as if they are rival group, rather help them and recognise their efforts for progression of islam. Ie Shias should be happy on success of Sunni and unhappy for any type loss in Sunni Muslim.
