  2. Just as the Muslim world finally moved on from the practice of slavery, similarly, we need to move on from the pre-modern concept of child brides. The concept of adolescence, and the importance of it, needs to be ingrained within our cultures. Children don't stop being children after puberty. Norms of 7th century aren't applicable today.

    Help

    Tell the organizers to buy this On a serious note though... I've never heard of this problem... Usually there are enough adults in the mosque to ensure the masses act maturely and listen... Is your mosque very small? If so, the hadith option may be good. Or sit next to the speakers?

  8. The hadith of ashra mubashara is a forgery because both Umar and AbuBakr wished they were stools of animals. If they were sure of Jannath then why they wished to be stools of animals? Statement of Umar: "I wish I was my family's sheep. They would have fattened me up to the maximum. When they were visited by friends, they would have killed me and roasted part of me, and made qadid (meat cut into strips and dried) from the other part of it, then they would have eaten me, and lastly, they would have relieved me with their bowle evacuation ... I wish I had been all that, rather than a human being." Minhaj as Sunnah, Ibn Taymiyya, vol 3 p 131 Hilyat al Awliya, Ibn Abi Nuaym, vol 1 p 52 . A supposed statement of Abu Bakr: He looked at a bird on a tree, then said, "Well done bird ... You eat the fruits, you stand on the trees and you are not accountable to anybody nor indeed can anybody punish you. I wish I was a tree by the road, and that a camel would come along and eat me. then relieve me with his bowel evacuation ... I wish that I had been all that, rather than a human being." Tarikh, Tabari, p 41 al Riyadh al Nadira, vol 1 p 134 Kanz al Ummal, p 361 Minhaj as Sunnah, Ibn Taymiyya, vol 3 p 120

  11. This man is in fact the very antithesis of all the gratuitous name calling he receives. Watch this interview and try to not drown in respect for him. This "dictator" makes Charlie Rose, an otherwise respectable journalist, look like a belligerent dumb ass here. Charlie begins and ends the interview with predetermined assumptions and conclusions, and Assad dealt with it brilliantly. A true diplomat.

    Difference ?

    Raj'ah is a resurrection before the judgement day. Example : the village that ran away from their home due to fear from eminent death, Allah said die and they all died then he resurrected them all , they lived and followed prophet Uzair Prophet Uzair is another example of Raj'ah. incarnation means that the body will not be revived, it will only be the soul that will inhibit another body Raj'ah : one body one soul incarnation : many bodies, one soul Raj'ah : selective, happens to few, dose not happen more than once reincarnation : general, happen to everyone, and happens everytime the creature dies (unless the creature reaches the absolute perfection) it happens in an endless numbers of times Raj'ah is Haq, incarnation is Batil

  14. Yes they are. I've found them to be highly racists. For e.g if you are of Indian/Pakistani origin, you can live all your life in some of the middle eastern countries and contribute to their economy but you would still get treated as a second class citizen.

  18. Nuclear technology and weapons are a must have. There is nothing wrong with them and no problems in sharia if you use them properly. See, our thinking is limited to hollywood depiction of nukes where big nuclear warheads are used on cities. On the other hand, miniaturized nuclear weapons with much smaller area of effect are very powerful and capable weapons and ignored by us civilians due to the hollywood visions we have. A mini nuke when used in artillery can decimate amassed enemy troops, say, an invasion force base, say, a USMC base in Afghanistan. No civilian casualties. Or it can be fired to obliterate an armored assault meant to punch a hole through your lines. Or a mini nuke can be used on a naval fleet, say, the satanic fleet in the mediterranean. Clean, effective, controlled and guaranteed kills. Next, nuclear power makes the old diesel/electric submarines look like child's play. Nuclear power and submarines were made for each other. Subs are incomplete without it. In this world where the mad rabid satan is free to assault and invade anyone for no reason it is only prudent to have nuclear weapons. Just never think of using it on civilians. Thats what satan did and its not our way.

  20. It is an absolute tragedy that the word 'coward' and 'Saudi Arabia' was used in one post, but not next to each other!!! Saudi has signed BILLION $ contracts for arms shipments to it from the West, yet it stands like a scared little school girl BEGGING America to attack Syria lol If there was even a handful of honourable Arabs within the Saudi Army they would have died from shame. Their King prostrates to the West to fight for him, while he sends his own humiliated forces to quell peaceful unarmed protesters in Bahrain. What a cowardly country, with a cowardly King, controlling a cowardly Army.

  21. Selam brothers and sisters Bismillah-hir-rahman-irraheem - may God help me convey my sincere message to you I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about THAT which is real. Now i would like to say firstly, i am not crazy or delusional, or have psychological issues , what i am telling you is completely real in order to help you also , and if you listen to me now i promise you will be thanking me on Judgement Day, maybe even before Judgement day(hopefully inshallah) Now i know i am not perfect before anything i will say, i dont have perfect ahlaaq heck maybe not even average ahlaaq as some of you may have noticed in discussion with me, and you might think certain things i have said are strange and very "morbid" and maybe even anti social however overlook my faults i am not perfect but what i am telling you now is 100% real i swear on my life, and if i am lying to you or if i wish to gain something from you God is my witness that i say now, may he punish me and destroy me and send me to hell What i am telling you is in the hope that yo u too will take to this, forget me, dont take to me, dont put your hope in me, i cant do anything for you, but take from what i have pursued for almost a decade now and fear me out and do listen to my cries to yourself to help yourself. Truth is that nobody can help you, not now not in the grave, and not on judgement day, UNLESS you help yourself first. And i say this fully conscious of the Ahlul Bayt and their intercession, even for them to help you, it requires that you take the initial step, and you will KNOW when you have taken the initial step, there is no mystery there, it will become obvious to yourself. Let me give you some advice, and this advice is not preach but firstly practice, before i even decided to write this up, i have been chasing this for years. Now alot of you have read stuff i have written about the soul and nafs, about God's signs about witnessing about "marifah" to call it that, however i prefer not to call it that because i feel like i am not being honest, i dont want to talk about something i dont use in my everyday vocabulary, and i am not an arab so arabic i read(i.e the Quran quiet well) but my arabic understanding is at the level of a chil from primary school, maybe even less. Thereopre i dont like to use terms in order to sensationalize my paragraphs, i would prefer to talk to you in what i am comfortable. To start from a short beginning, i was like you are now(in faith only[from what i have read from your posts etc] not the stuff that follows this) I had doubts, i wasnt a good person, i wasnt a good Muslim, i struggled to practice the basic things , and i never really sat down to think about Islam or God or hereafter, i was enjoy life as the next person, of course i never got "carried away" in life, but if somebody was to see me(outside of the mosque and away from the sheik) they wouldnt recognize me as a Muslim in my behavior, my look, my speech, my actions etc. I blended in with the rest and all. Around the shikh at the local mosques and centers i was "sucking up and all innocent" but the moment i was alone with "others" i couldnt care twice or less for anything, i was disrespectful to my parents because i thought i 'knew better" and i was after a good job and money , that was my goals in life. Maybe some of you can relate to some of those things, or maybe u were never as bad as me. I wil say this also, woman did chase me and i was not too "active" in this field, i was always shy (thank God) but i did spend a bit of time around woman innocently(perhaphs) Anyway to get to the point as this is already getting long, my journey started with the month of Ramadhan, when i was young (early 15-18) i dreaded the month of Ramadhan, i kind of looked forward to it, but i dreaded not being able to live normally, to have smelly breath, to watch others eat, to suffer, to have to go to work in those hot days and spend hours thirsty suffering even blaming God as to 'why do i have to do this?", etc and when it came near i used to feel sad yet hopeful, but the pessimistic side was much stronger because i was much more "used" to life. However one month of Rajab, i had this idea, which came from my personality, in which if i feared something i would dive in head deep and tackle it on until i overcame it, i decided to do some "homework" i didnt want the month of Ramdhan to be hard, so i came to the conclusion that "i wil fast Rajab and Shaban" so that the month of Ramdhan will be easier. Now i know what you might be thinking, how is that easier? Well since i was doing it voluntarily i knew that if it got too hard i can break it, and somehow it was easier to 'worship myself" as opposed to worshiping God when you have to fast and it is obligatory etc and that is how i "awoke" This fasting from Rajab i eventually eased into fasting, and so since i eased into fasting i thought, well since i am already used to fasting, why not continue to fast and make up for all those (multipole) times that i had intentionally broke my fast in the past and get it over and done with. So i fasted and fasted, and i kept fasting for days, for months, for years. This became a habit of mine, however i will say that in all these times, i never noticed any change about myself, other then the usual things such as not to eat during the day, and at night to be extra careful to not eat anythign haram or conspicuous etc . And so my life tarried on, i started begin to practise the sharia, pray on time, not listen to music, slowly but steady i got rid of everything haram(and yes i failed and went back and forth on some things along the way) but eventually i made it, i made myself a half decent muslim. However as time progressed i never felt satisfied, i started to ask Questions as many of you ask today, i started to read philosophy books, to study science, to find teh answers to my questions. Is there really a God? why do i need to pray? why deos God need me to do this and that and who do i have to abstain from this. I was angry, i couldnt understand God's justice, i couldnt make sense of so many thing as i read from so many people on these forums , i had all those questions you have and had, i swear it is like reading my history the questions people ask here, the ideologies people have, the thoughts, the belief etc all of this i went through it, it was impossible to avoid. Eventually after frustrations and unanswered questions, i came accross all these topic of faith(naturally reading about all these books on God etc) and i came across so many hadith, so many verses of the Quran which didnt make sense to me, what is this "faith" what is their "believer, what is this "children of adam" that the verses refer to, that the hadith talk about. What is evil etc And i probed and probed, i looked and looked. Eventually i came accross the boks of the "urafa" as they call them, and i became as astonished as any other persons, i read exaggerations, i read truth, i read lies, and i read falsehood, i read "bidah" i read al of these issues, i became interested in "real power" in "divine knowledge" in "knowing the future and past" in being "famous and everyone around me with me humbly in between them all only seeing Allah" as you see some of the urafa in their pictures and videos. However despite all this excitement, i had teh same opinion many of you have here, i read people saying "its subjective" its psychological "its fake, its "imagination" its "extremities and hallucinations" its made up etc i had all those thoughts people have said to me, people have argued with me about, people have questioned me on, i had it all, i had doubts thick as my skull, and beliefs as thin as paper, i had nothing but perplexity and confusion, But i had a curiosity so i said to my self, i will do all that i can in 40 days and see what happens. I was already used to fasting, i thought i got nothing to lose, 40 days of worship and extra activities cant harm me, if i find nothing from this all, then i will just disregard it and make my own opinion about it end of story, however if it is real i will decide what to do from there. So here i am. One decade later, and i have this to say to all of you. Firstly it is all real. Let me just say so that people dont assume; i am not Ayatollah Bahjat, i am not Allamah Tabatabai, i am not these "heavyweights" in this field who have gone such a distance that if you knew what they could do , yet how humble they were, you would be as astonished as i am, how they remained so humble and so secretive(and they didnt have to remain secretive) , and they kept their focus on God from day one to the end. Nothing ever distracted them or enticed them, not power, not fame, nothing, thjey reached whatever they were supposed to reach and now they are enjoying the most unimaginable bounties from God but yet they are who they are. back to what i was saying and here is where i want to draw your attention to: This stuff is all real, this faith is real, it is more real then this life, God is real(of course) and this path is COMPULSORY ON AL OF YOU here is the most important facts i wanted to make to you and listen up 1) The Path of faith is compulsory for you, it is not an ambiguous path where you are not sure if you have it or you dont have 2) it is not an easy path, it is probably the hardest thing any man/woman can do in this life, but yet the MOST important 3) If you have NEVER experienced real faith(and when real faith comes to you there is no question about "what is this" etc in fact when you get it it is so real that it makes this life look fake, you think you are dreaming or hallucinating and it makes you tremble and fear and shake and question everything about your self 4)when it comes, and excuse this analogy, it comes built up inside you, until FINALLY it explodes or what feels like "breaks or tears your heart/soul" . You feel yourself crack, you feel something inside you break, you feel light hit your face, you SEE God, you cry and cry and cry and there is no QUESTION about its authenticity, its not like a mosquito bite where you felt it but it was not big enough to make an impact, it feels very potent, it is VERY real, if you have NEVER felt this you have NEVER felt real faith, and i am sorry to be so straightforward but THIS is truth i am telling you 5) God sends you some sign when you attain it, so to further confirm what had happened to you, you get a sign after the event, like something which stays with you for some time, it could be (as was in my case) a tree which i used to look at when i wanted to "see" the truth of God, but for you probably will be something else, i dont know, i dont have that much knowledge about this stuff, i am stil despite all of this at the bottom levels of faith, i have through the Quran received confirmation that i have attained the faith of a "believer" and not much more then that since 6) along the way towards this faith, there are what feel or experience like 'flashes" where these moments prepare you for that ultimate "big bang" because it is even physically daunting, i remember i felt like i was going to pass out when it happened, but prior top it, and i never knew what was coming, when i felt the prior ones i always doubted them later on, i couldnt "revive" them in my mind or heart afterwards, but after you get the BIG one it stays with you, or i guess as they describe it, becomes a state 7) getting faith doesnt mean you are actually forever fee from losing it, in fact getting it is hard, but keeping it is even harder, i have lost this many many many many times, and each time you lose it it becomes "watered down" where the next you acquire it, it is weaker and more vunreable and feels like it needs to be strengthened 8)now here is the most important points, if you cannot SEE god with your heart, you are the most FURTHEST point away from God, in fact i hate to say this to you, but i promise you it is truth, you are actually in Hell(in accordance with relativity from here to hereafter) because the "further you are from God" you are actually also further away from Heaven and at the bottom of Hell, i know this might come as a shock to you, and that is why i wanted to make this post to alarm you about the truth, to alarm you about your state, about where you are in reference to your soul, i know you people pray and fast etc, but when it comes to faith, you are relatively speaking in hell, now does that mean you will end up in hell when you die? no not necessarily, although you share the same stage or faith as those who dont pray and dont do anything 9) if you leave this state or this place, as i mentioned above you will know it, you will begin to get closer to God and hence you will see God, and more importantly you will love God, you will grow attached to those faith, nothing in this life will ever satisfy you, you will feel that only God is your friend and companion, everyone else will seem insignificant, you will feel a deep desire to get even MORE closer to God, you will sacrifice everything to keep this little bit of faith you gained, you will not be happy anywhere else but this new position you gained, life will become so depressing and dark and sometimes you wont be able to sleep at night thinking about this new reality which opened to you, you wil fear God yet feel shy of Him, you will see His Greatness in his creation, and you will begin to lose sight of your self, food and those thing you once admired in this life will become meaningless and empty to you, this life wil seem so dull and boring, nothing of this life will satisfy you, but when God sends his mercy to you, you will hang onto it like a dying man hangs on his loved ones, wanting ti to last forever, you wil become addicted to God as if it is some drug, and i know this all sounds very strange and maybe even bad, but words cant describe these things, they will lead you to do extreme acts to try to satisfy God, you will starve yourself, you will exhaust yourself, you will feel weak and hopeless and humble yourself to such an extent to feel that beam of love from God, that is how it becomes, but dont think this sounds bad or sounds pathetic, trust me when i say this, it is beyond words, and in that pathetic nature you fins such happiness and such comfort and such dafety and such love that nothing in this life cam compare to it now there is so much more i can say on this topic, but honestly i have said enough, i hope people read this and really take it into account, besides you are the shia of Ali , you have access to the best of knowledge and best of tools to raise to the highest ground , and meet them in the best form, yes it is hard but use the time you have, and one last thing it is not easy, so dont expect much from little, it is like training your body , if you go for a 15 minute run, you will find that you will get nothing, but eventually if you do things right you will find that in the end you will spend most your time on this, and hardly find time for anything else in this life , you will drift away from this life until you lose your own self, of course some of the things i mentioned dont last forever, you see stages you see flashes you see rarely and after much work and effort states which are very hard to keep, but eventually they must be reached as well truly i tel you this, if you do decide to go on this, know that your life will change dramatically, you cant keep yourself as you are and do this, you will really have to give up everything, even your own personality and self, until you cant recognize even your own self, and i know that sounds crazy and even scary, it feels like you are dying while alive until even it feels like you are dead to the world, you could be next to people whoim you have known closely all you life(like you parents and siblings) and feel so distant from everyone including yourself, it is not a joke these things, it is real, really really real and even scary at times, the things you encounter along the way, the experiences you have, the sings you see, the future and past that come to you, and these are all beginners stuff, i couldnt and havent been able to make it past certain points no matter what i do, because they are not easy to bear, and one slip at these level sends you crashing but here i the important thing, if you trade your next life for this life, is it really worth it? all of this i described and more will be imposed upon you anyway in barzakh if you dont do it now, but however over there there will be no happy ending, there will be only suffering and maybe even eternal damnation because you never turned to God truly here, you sacrificed this life for the eternal one you really must give up and choose to die here now, you really must accept death, even go to your own funeral, i did it for myself i went o my funeral and i accepted death for my self here, death from this life, i know it sounds scary and even crazy now, but how do you want it? do you want to have it imposed on you as punishment without the rewards and levels of faith or do you want to do it as the Imams and God told us to do it? i know it is hard to give up this life, to say "i dont care for money or for life or for pleasures or for tastes or for cars or for houses or for anything, it is not easy to give up the only thing you know yourself and your feelings and emotions and step into this darkness and unknown not knowing when and what will happen to you and one other thing i forgot to mention, there is HUGE tests along the way, i really cant get into the details, but every facet of yours, every fear, every doubt, every little shadow in your heart will be taken into the spotlight and tested, every litel thing until it is obliterated from you, every thing you knew and know and dont know will be brought out into the light by God you will be HEAVILY tested with all those things you fear and hate and love and desire, it is not an easy path but you have time, God is forgiving and merciful you will get to know God in ways you never knew or known before, see right now if you think of God or hereafter you have only these subjective thoughts in your mind, they are not REAL they are created by yourself, in order to get to know the REAL God and the REAL hereafter and the REAL life you must actually meet them, you must actually go to them but dont think this is "extra curriculum" or homework , dont think "i dont care about this now i wil do it when i die or get old or whatever" this is not a joke, if you die you can die in such a state from which you can never come back from, despite that you prayed and fasted and even did good, the veils they cover you every day in the kingdom of God and most people dont know this, you are always moving in either direction, there is no stagnation, God says himself in the Quran that He it is who Guides and Misguides, so if you dont pursue guidance you will be sent astray and away, and when you reach death you will be beyond help dont be like the jews and think " we are Muslims" we have intercession we are safe etc , no that is not the case! yes God has promised reward and safety from hell fire from certain actions like fasting etc, but at the same time God has threatened some serious threats like "Good deeds will not be accepted from the polytheists" and this: O Allah, I ask You for protection on the day when property will not avail, nor sons except he who comes with a heart free (from evil)(26: 88) And I ask You for protection on the day when the unjust one will bite his hands saying: O would that I had taken a way with the messenger.(25; 27) and I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty shall be recognized by their marks so they shall be seized by the forelocks and the feet.(55; 41) and I ask You for protection on the day when a father shall not give any satisfaction for his son nor shall the child give any satisfaction for his father, Surely the promise of Allah is true.31; 33) and I ask You for protection on the day when the unjust shall not benefit from their excuse and for them is curse and for them is the evil abode.(40; 52) and I ask You for protection on the day when no soul shall control anything for (another) soul and the command on that day shall be entirely Allah's.(82; 19) and I ask You for protection on the day when a man shall flee from his brother, and his mother, his father, his spouse, and his children, each one of them on that day will have a concern which will occupy him.(80;34) and I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty will wish to redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children, and the near of kin who gave him shelter and all those that are in the earth (wising) that this might deliver him. by no means! Surely it is a flaming fire, dragging by the head (70; 11; 16) dont be foolish and think you are safe, shaytaan is fooling you and dont think "i have to finish uni first,m i have to get a good job, raise a good family" etc these are all dunya and shaytaan foling you, they come to you as wolf in sheeps clothing, dont be fooled and put your focus on this life, we are only here temporarily and who knows how long we wil live? what if tomorrow you die? what will you do? what will you say to God? there is no more coming back from dath it is not a joke, your PRIORITY should be this dont mess with your life dont be fooled and so comfortable where you are, just because we live in the west doesnt mean anything,, people die every day , in their sleep and otherwise, dont play with you r lie and dont put your focus on here people wil tel you as they have often told me 'what about your this and that etc" they are so concerned and infatuated with this liffe, and they are so lost from God, they dont know God they are busy with this life, and buisnesses and family, and religion and GHod gets maybe 10% of their time, they are awlays tired from life and family and work they never stay up praying except oin special occasions, they are too tired and busy to fast etc their whoile life is about this life dont mess with your life, what you will find in the grave wil not be plesent and easy, it will be painful and hard and unbearable people often say "my love for ahlul bayt will save me" etc "my tears fro Imam Hussein will save me" etc they have put all their eggs in one basket, one tiny little basket they are not even sure about honestly who out there has this much focus on their religoin? all these people talk about how "merciful Allah is" and how "safe they will be" but their life passes infatuated with this life, bellies out to the pavement, cars and houses and good clothes, how is thier lives resembling a life of a true seeker of God and hereafter? people are so infatutated with this life that they are sick of this life, they have tasted every food, they have so much favorite food and places to visit, they have huge kitchens with all kinds of condiments and meats etc just go to thje Ate/Eating/etc page on here , look at what people busy themselves with people are so obsessed witrh university , they pray to God for university entrance but they dont pray for entrance into Heaven the way they prey for university even after reading all of this unfortunately not many of you will take actual heed, not many of you will do what i did, and i dont say that boasting i say that sadly dont you want to see your Imam? i haven't seen him but he opportunity to meet him in person is there, you dont have to wait for the reappearance, but he wil come to you and greet you and tell you and confirm you are on the real path God's elite will come to you in dreams and instruct you and guide you and God will be constantly guiding you, and the most beautiful thing is that you will love God and God will love you , you wil be free and when you die you will get everything which nobody in this life can achieve for eternity you must truly accept that the hereafter is your home and this place is just a "bus station' why would you build your house at a bus station? why would you study the "timetable of this bus station" when your only getting the bus once you have to REALLY give up this life, and i mean REALLY not just say it and then pursue it subconsciously, you must put your complete trust in God, what is this life worth? as Imam Ali said not even the bottom of his sandal it is not even worth that you think when he said that he was just "saying it?" anyway i have said enough , hopefully it falls on the right ears faith is more real then this life and if you are wondering if you have it, compare your faith to this life and see which is more real, if you find this life more real i would consider myself in trouble if i were you

  22. Actually 12 is still quite small, menstruation is just a beginning......15 years old and up is usually a bit more on the safe side when it comes to marital relations and resulting pregnancies (and even those ages are a bit risky at times)......as for mental maturity, well that is an entirely different matter because much of the time a teenager is just a young girl stuck in the body of a woman.

  25. If it goes to a Chapter 7 vote, Russia still has to vote for the Resoultion at that point. It is not an automatic authorization under Chapter 7 if the U.S finds Syria in Non compliance. In 2003, Russia was in a different situation than they are today, i.e. more isolated and with less political cloat. Even if Syria doesn't rush to comply with the U.N. mandate, I doubt the U.S. would table a Ch. 7 vote. Bottom line, Russia had to put something in the resolution that would allow the U.S to seem like it got something from the negotiations. That's politics. BTW, the U.S will continue to attack Syria, but thru its Salafist proxies and not directly. I think the era of direct U.S military intervention is over, at least for a while.

  26. The concept of an 'enlightened' version of a religion is the biggest joke of an argument that I've ever heard. So basically you are saying that God was wrong in his decree and that He forgot that things change over time and therefore needs us humans to reform his religion so that we can correct His mistakes. Ridiculous. As for the Greenland argument, see below: I didn't know about the state of the Greenland Eskimo's apart from what the above poster had said so I based my argument off of the facts that I was told. I apologize for putting forth an invalid argument based on a half-truth. My argument was based on the assumption that the problem arose from the lack of availability of spouses and not from the fact that the suitors were family members. I was arguing the wrong point because of a misunderstanding. If what you say was the case and the problem stemmed from the lack of genetic differentiation, then the following will show you the correct position: 1. Yes, I know very well the meaning of inbreeding. Please don't act like Muslims are forms of neanderthals that lack intelligence. Your misconceptions about Islam are baseless. The Quran says to migrate when living conditions are bad or if you can't practice your faith. If it is absolutely NECESSARY to fornicate to survive (as you are trying to argue), you must migrate. If they were Muslims, they would have migrated. End of story and solution offered. No use trying to use that story to justify your "enlightened Christianity"'s sanctioning of fornication. And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many [alternative] locations and abundance. And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him - his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah . And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful (Quran 4:100). But, if there was truly no alternative in that situation (which I doubt), Islam has this to say: Except for the oppressed among men, women and children who cannot devise a plan nor are they directed to a way (4:98). For those it is expected that Allah will pardon them, and Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving (4:99). 2. I thank Allah that the education levels of the Muslim scholars is much higher than that of the Christian scholars (the ones that put their own opinions over God's command and altered Christianity) because that allows Islam to remain unchanged and unadulterated throughout the ages while other religions (Christianity, Judaism, etc.) are converted into 'enlightened' forms which go completely against Allah's will and exist solely to serve the lusts and illicit desires of pseudo-Christian societies (USA, UK, etc.). 3. To conclude, there will (thank god) be no 'enlightened' forms of Islam in the future even if you and other 'Christians' decide to twist Christianity into what you think it should be and completely brush God's command to the side.

  30. i just wonder , i am not a good person to that i bear witness, i have anger and pride in my heart, and i am not without sin, maybe there is some things i have overcome, and yet God has shown me all of these things, despite that probably so many more deserving people are in a better position then me, but i wonder despite my so many fallacies and shortcomings , the ones the public knows(that i mentioned) and the ones i haven't mentioned, how i dont compare in any way with the Imams who were infallible , can you just imagine what they witnessed when they prayed to God? its no wonder Imam Ali , that they were able to get an arrow out of his leg when he prayed and he didnt even feel it, just goes to show how low and pathetic we are, even the ones who were lucky to see a few things like myself, and there isnt even hardly any of those around these days

  33. People often as and discuss this fact about God They say "does God know i will do this or does God know i will do that" They ask "did God know that he will not bow down to Adam(a.s) etc" And i am going to answer this question on a small scale using an example Okay going back to basics If i have a coin, and i ask you what are the possible results if i flip this coin? You will tell me from looking at the coin, that it can either be a head or tail So i give you the coin you flip it and it is as you said either heads or tails Now if i tell you, i am going to tell you about gravity, gravity exists , and gravity affects the coin how it lands and then i tell you , air molecules exist and they provide a force against that coin when it soars through them, an air resistance force and then i tell you, that the coin moves in circular motion and it has a revolution momentum provided by the initial force applied by your thumb when you apply the initial force and then i tell you the angle which you tilt you hand when you strike the coin also will effect the momentum of the coin and the landing of the coin and then i tell you if somebody nudges you this will also effect the coins result and then i tell you the inital force applied + the force of gravity + the force of air resistance + revolutionary forces of the flipping coin + plus the rest of the not mentioned force all of them applied will result in how the coin lands and then i give you the coin and i tell you if you flip it this way or apply force that way then it will be heads or tails etc and you tell me you dont believe in gravity, and lets assume that you were able to adjust your initial velocity to match the force of gravity and have the coin flip in this manner and end up in this result, and you told me "i think i know better" and go about doing it another way which i knew of its outcome would you blame me for the coin not landing as you had predicted? as you can see our minds are limited, our perceptions are limited, our minds ability to calculate event he outcomes of such factors for a coin is very difficult, our control on our own hands and angle and force applied to that coin we in reality have no say in, we just hit it, and the result conclude a certain way now this is how God works in his "all knowing" and His being the "controller" see for us in our limitation we cannot control even how much force we apply to that coin, what angle we apply it at, what opposite forces do to the momentum of that coin, what other factors might be involved that we might not even know about such as winds or somebody bumping us, or we tripping or whatever may be the cause which in reality would end up being an infinite amount of possibility even the most complex and fastest calculating computer couldnt count infinity for you, it could maybe give you an estimate, but that would very easily be wrong due to some unforeseen circumstance but God he knows everything, he knows the outcome of every possibility of that coin , he knows that if you angle your thumb or hand this way, he knows if you apply this much force(knowing or unknowingly) he knows what other factors will contribute, he knows the winds that might be imperceptible and undetectable which will play a part in the result of that coin, he knows every possible infinite combination of that coin and He knows also what could change the flip of that coin, so that if you flip it , he might control the winds that might make that 0.00001 effect that would change the effect of that coins result etc he knows every outcome and every factor, he is infinite in His calculations, and we cannot even perceive that simple result of a coin even if we had a computer to calculate all of those factors, and we had a controlled situation such as a vacuum and even we had a machine which applies an exact amount of force to that coin that we want, and even if we knew all of the physics of rotational dynamics etc there could be something we missed or God decided to control, such as maybe the lubrication in the flipping mechanism was not oiled but the sensor didnt percieve it because it was such a small amount of influence but nevertheless changed the outcome of that coin and again God is the controller , but the free will rests with us, we choose to flip that coin and we wanted a certain outcome and we built all of this mechanism and scenario for it and we did the claculations and we controlled the environment etc and in the end we flipped the coin, but the outcome we couldnt control etc now this applies to everything, when you think of life how many factors influence and change so many things about us, such as we want to catch a Bus and we leave early following the schedule of the bus station times, but however we got to the bus stop on time but we didnt realize that the Bus might have punctured a tire on the way and when we waited and the time for the Bus arrival came we found that the Bus didnt come on the time and we thought we somehow missed it, so we think that maybe the time we have is wrong or we think maybe the day we checked the timetable was the wrong day, or maybe we think the timetable changed etc there is a billion factors which can effect the outcome of anything and we cannot change or know the outcome, we have free will to do what we want but the outcome might not go as planned, however sometimes God lets us have what we want and other times God works against us in his wisdom because we are limited in knowing although we pretend to be smart, therefore the only way to go is to go with the flow trust in God and ask him for everything!!! even ask him to make the Bus come on time as we go to catch the bus

  35. come back to basics, you want to talk about food? well if your going to talk about food, let me put it this way your freeze framing every video at a certain picture, ignoring the previous circumstances and then focusing on that single frame and looking for answers, yoiu need to open your mind up further then that what caused you to choose bananna or custard? there was two things on two levels, one was your nafs and the other was your body's needs for vitamins and minerals see even food is a result of a snowball effect if you apply what i said about the coin to every situation , taking into consideration the surrounding factors, of course they will not be the same for every single thing, and some factors are effected by different variables and food is a much more complex situation then a coin because a coin was a very simply and basic example which i have proven that even that coin is affected by a infinite amount of factors and food is even more complex then a coin, and food is a fuel for the body, so to take food into consideration you have to take the body into consideration you keep thinking on a macro scale that is your fault in this and you keep thinking in a single dimension, while each and every dimension is effected by the subsequent dimension and each dimension is just as important as the last the fact that you wanted to eat a banana or custard was based on, from the information we have about our existence, the body and the nafs(desires) which resulted from an array of previous decisions and even could have been something external like you seen a commercial from Tv which inspired that desire in you and to list a few of the factors here: maybe that day you exercises and hence burned sugar levels in your body, and due to you being somebody with a sweet tooth, your body had a habit of storing sugar levels again as mentioned Tv commercial inspired your desire(nafs) to taste that food or maybe you never tasted that food but was curious to taste it maybe you have diabetes which is yet undiscovered hence your body's desire for sugar maybe you needed to empty your fridge and hence you wanted to make space do you see just how absolutely every single factor plays an effect on what you will do? do you see how if i keep track of every atopm in the universe and able to calculate every single atom on a micro scale and macro scale i can predict how every single thing will act/react? if i created the body with its billion of chemical interactions going on every second, and i know how the external environment effects it, and i know how if something is applied what the result will be, going from state to state, how it will result you in so many ways? do you see just how complex all of this is? your problem with understanding this is that you have limited God's ability you dont perceive God's infinity to be conscious of and aware of every single thing and not only at just that one moment, but prior to it and post it, and how today your choice in bannana or custard will have an effect upon you tomorrow? there is a hadith from Imam Jaffar Sadiq where he says "an evil action of a person will effect 7 generations after him" do you see just how each action has a reaction and consequence? so your free will is like a driving force which starts a wave, and that wave goes through the course(life and its billions of potential scenarios) and then that wave just keeps on going and not only affecting you but affecting other variables in existence see physics have this theory that every atom is connected in the universe( and that each change affects every other atom ion the universe) so that as if you can imagine there is this huge moving or living "material" and the change and the momentum is caused by free will, so all together all humans all free willed beings are caused the universe to move in some direction on a a macro scale, in between these movements is a billions cause and effects like you can imagine to put it in a linear fashion, the universe is a huge domino;s falling effect

  37. Vigilare, I thought you were praised for your knowledge, i am baffled by your statement! Which companion are you referring to? Who did not know Dont define the word "sahabi" according to the Ummavis (read "Sunnis"), even a 2 year old toddler who has seen the Prophet (sawa) is known as a companion, what a joke! It is super clear that All the REAL companions of the Prohet (sawa) were aware about the claim made by Ameer ul Mumineen (as). Have you read Tabri? read the chapter on Shura.

  40. She is not in proper hijab, but what does this have to do with Imam Khomeni(ra) ? The opinions about this really express a bad feature of Iranian and other cultures, i.e. that the grandfather or his family is judged as a whole for what one member of the family does that is un-Islamic. The one who did the photoshop job really should reconsider how their actions have drawn more attention to the issue than it otherwise would have received. It clearly says in the Quran in many places, each soul with be rewarded or punished based on its own actions, not the actions of the family. If she chooses to wear tight cloths and not observe proper hijab, she is doing the wrong thing, but this has nothing to do with Imam Khomeni(ra) and the other members of the family who do observe proper hijab. Each person decides for themselves whether they want to follow the religion or not, regardless of which family they come from.

    Khamenei Or Sistani?

    (salam), 1) You can't come to a conclusion about how knowledgable a person is by visiting their websites. Neither Sayyid Sistani nor Sayyid Khamenei made their websites themselves. In fact, I doubt if either of them have even visited their own websites recently. Their websites are not in the least bit representative of their knowledge. There must be hundreds (maybe thousands) of rulings missing from their websites and there have been and will continue to be errors on both websites (glitches, typos, etc.). That you like one's website over the other's is not a good enough reason to start following another Marja1 You don't know for sure if Sayyid Khamenei has or has not solved the 'modern problems' you speak about. Perhaps he has and they just haven't put it on his website so you don't really know. Furthermore, have you really looked everywhere for Sayyid Khamenei's views on these issues? I doubt it. You are basing your conclusion on what could be termed as mere 'skimming' through both of their websites. 2) It is also unlikely that Sayyid Khamenei is unaware of something as basic as the proof for and against chess. Don't make such assumptions. Personally, I lean towards the prohibition of chess but I don't go as far as to say Sayyid Khamenei (or Sayyid Khomenei, are you aware he allowed chess as well if gambling is not involved?) or the scores of other mujtahideen have allowed prohibited acts. That's accusing them of a grave sin. You may not intend to be contemptible but by saying someone who is followed by millions as the Marja` Taqlid has less knowledge than you or me, you actually are disrespecting him. It's like telling a car mechanic he doesn't know what the gear of a car is, or a cell biologist that she doesn't know what the cytoplasm means. If you and I know the arguments against chess, Sayyid Khamenei must know them too. And despite all that if he comes to another conclusion, it may be us who do not know/understand something that he does. Keep in mind it is also a sin to prohibit something that is allowed by Allah. So the least you can do is give him the benefit of doubt given his calibre and not be so quick to undermine his knowledge (especially since he's not the only one who allows chess). 3) There's no such thing as Khamenei-ism or Sistani-ism. I'm sure if they themselves hear such words being spoken they would be angered by them. There are already too many 'isms' around for us to start creating new ones. Try and avoid using such divisive terminology, it doesn't do anyone any good. I am a muqallid of Sayyid Sistani, by the way. (salam)

  43. Those who are protecting the shrines in Syria are doing the biggest service to the humanity. If Takfiris succeeded in their plans of desecrating any of the shrines of the Haram of Holy Ahlulbayt (as), this would engulf into a 1000 years civil war between Shias and Takfiris. (Sunnis as silly as they are would either join Takfiris or give up on Islam all together). May Allah strengthen the hands and hearts of those Shia who are protecting shrines in Syria.

  45. ^ I second that , get rid of all those freaks that talk of such things , and while we're at it , why not stop there . let's continue and ban those that talk of a super human being , over 1200 years old , but looks in his 30s, perfect in all aspects of creation , lives in a parallel dimension and will come one day with an army of only 313 men and will destroy all the oppressors , and bring truth , peace and justice. Let's ban those that talk of curing all diseases using a simple :Dua , let's ban those that dwell deep into the glorious :Ayats of the :Quran , and explore the many hidden meanings . Let's ban those fairy tales of another super human that travel back and forth in time , and visited heaven and hell. Let's ban those who talk of another super human , who is over 6000 years old and looks like 30s. Let's ban anything and everything that disturbs and effects the sheep into using their minds that :Allah swt has given them. we have no room for such people and their crazy ideas . because everything is just dandy , just click your heals 3 times Dorothy , and say "there's no place like home "
