  1. (bismillah) (salam) Dear Brothers and Sisters, It strikes me that I became a member of this fine forum in September 2006, which is now almost seven-and-a-half years. "Time flies," as they say. I have never been a very active member here, nor I have I posted very much. But I have learned a lot as a lurker over the years and I appreciate the way this community has remained on the Internet and served to connect a great variety of people. So, I would like to offer my thanks to this forum and its members. May the next seven years be even better for you and yours! (wasalam)

  2. All the 'rebuttals' from our sunni brothers here are but red herrings, avoiding the main issue at hand which is firmly cemented in their Sahihs. Allah’s Messenger (SAAWS) said, "He who sees from his ruler something he dislikes, let him be patient with him, for he who splits away from the Jamaa’ah by a handspan and then dies, dies a death of Jaahiliyyah" and in a narration, "then he has thrown off the yoke of Islaam from his neck." Hadith - Al-Bukhari and Muslim, and other narration by at-Tirmidhee (no. 2867) and Ahmad (4/130) We can conclude from history that; Abu Bakr was the temp

  3. Music is drug. Its something that people resort to when they cant handle the reality around them. The lyrics, the melody ,the beat all contribute in creating a Lalaland for the person, causing them to fantasize, and this same fantasizing is what intoxicates a person's morals and value, it strips them of their spirituality. Not only that, music makes the human mind create an ideal image of him/herself, therefore its blocking the reality around them and who they really are.

  4. (bismillah) (salam) The prayer of Sanam-e-Quraish (the idols of Quraish) is a very authentic supplication of Amir-ul-Momineen Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib as and it has been recognised by all renowned historians as such. It has been narrated by Abdullah bin Abbas ra that one night I went to the Masjid-e-Nabbivi saww tooffer my late-night prayers and saw Amir-ul-Momineen as offering his supplications. I decided to sit in a corner and listen to Mola Aliasws’s recitation of Quran and prayers. After completing Salat (late night prayers, shafa and witr) , Imam recited supplications which I had ne

Such dedication and selflessness, really puts you to shame. Plus he has a cute smile :) Another awesome scholar, Ayatullah Syed Madadi. Wednesday nights they usually have a discussion on rijal and afterwards an informal gathering with very few people. It's a really humbling experience listening to him. Presently one of my favorite scholars. Ayatullah Syed Shubeyri Zanjani. They have an informal behas over different issues a short

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    Ya, no smell at all. I could sleep with it under my pillow and it was not tinned either. It was Durian. It's a shame I did not take photos. I'm guessing they probably treated the fruits before exporting because these fruits are only available in hypermarkets - they obviously don't want to drive people away because of its smell. Or as my friend mentioned, the Durians coming in this country are usually from Thailand which maybe lacking in smell and taste unlike the ones in Tanzania where he ate and swore it was so good. Next in line, in'sha Allah - Mangosteens: ^^^ If my friend gets

  11. In my opinion Western Media is dying. The internet is setting minds free. However, the "mass media" in the sense of movies, pop culture, mainstream western news, etc. is very seductive and powerful because lots of intelligent, money-hungry, power-hungry people have deep experience with it. They use profound psychological tactics ruthlessly. They know how to manipulate the subconscious mind, inflame desires for sex and materialism, play on status anxiety, and so on. A good documentary on mass media and psychological maipulation is "The Century of the Self." I recommend it.

    Confused

    "Only to make you happy" ?? Who can believe in a God that wants us to kill? Is there anyone who does not see this as the devil's work? I mean if I was a parent whose child was going to die because I could not feed him... I would rather he die an honest death of starvation, not a death of killing others. Is it just easier... a quick death rather than a long painful one... where parents do not have to watch their children dying... where it is easier to convince themselves that they do something good? I can not imagine what God does with the souls of these poor children taken advantage of by ev

    (bismillah) (salam) Just the Truth Rejecting the rulings that one knows to be from Allāh or His Representative is kufr. In this day and age, with the absence of His Representative - the Heir of His merciful Apostle - Imām al-Mahdī [as], the Muslim umma is compelled to understand the Law of Allāh from Texts, a lot of which is uncertain, either in their (in)authenticity or in their (non)ambiguity. This much is certain, the rejection of which is kufr for any Muslim of any sect: the clear indications (nuṣūṣ) of the Noble Koran, and any practice or doctrine that is the ijmāʿ of all A

  17. I will label it as Cold War hangover. There were clever people back in the '90s who said that Russia would not become another country carved in the image of the US and that it would reassert itself as soon as it gains some of its confidence back. Putin is just making it happen. Whereas US and allies just as usual are wallowing in self righteous rage.

    Random Hair Growth

    Okay so I am genetically hairy as it is, and this post is serious for those wondering, but recently, I've had thick black hairs starting to grow on my shoulders around my lats and on my back. Has anyone else experienced this as well or knows a reason why it would just happen? I thought all body hair growing in new areas would have finished long ago.

  21. If her committing zina is not proven shar`i, and her husband had consummated the marriage with her, and their divorce was ordinary (not khulu`) then she is entitled to the full mahr. Not giving her the dowry would be infringing on her rights in this case. My recommendation is to give the dowry, and learn from the mistake - it will end the animosity between the two families, and the they'll be able to move on. This is another black mark on arranged/forced marriages: don't marry someone you don't know, and don't promise a large dowry to a woman you've never heard of.

    Rejecting hadith is rejecting the sunnah of rasulillah and his ahlulbayt(as) and rejecting their sunnah is disobeying Allah(swt), hence it brings them out of the fold of islam. Allah(swt) clearly stated in the noble Quran to obey the messenger. The only way to do that in our age is via the authentic hadith

Plus sister maryam, the girl defnitely has done something wrong, but you were right in that she too is probably under a lot of pressure.

  40. Stupidity. Of course jin would love you to pray because being a Sunni every time you wake up for fajr, you pray your salat in the sunnah of muawiah (and in opposition of the sunnah of Prophet) by hand folded, making haram sajda on a piece of cloth (sajda has to be done on mud or earthen material or straw but not on the fabric), reading surah of Quran without Bismillah and so on. So Iblees would be calling in parties to have you pray your wrong salat.

  43. (bismillah) Do as you wish. But you'll find me ruthlessly logical in my approach: If one tries to prove a thesis is inconsistent, one can only take the thesis on its own terminology and semantics. Otherwise, any proof of inconsistency will be logically irrelevant to that thesis. So, in order not to waste anyone's time, refrain from being logically irrelevant. Have they not been able to find it? Here it is: http://www.ghadeer.org/hadis/KAFI_J1/o_kfi_26.html Last ḥadīth.

    Thanks for sharing CM, where are you from in Iraq? I"m going there in a few months and I'm pretty excited although the heat is going to be a killer. From my last trip, Najaf's graveyard was the most depressing of all, majority of the graves were all young men that have died in 2003 and up. Allah yin3al min kan el sabab.

  46. If I understood the Imam Ridha answer that bro Qa'im posted above, Imam Ridha said that Allah created the where without a where and created the how without a how.... Which means that "where " is a creation of Allah, by saying that Allah is everywhere, we are restricting Him to His creation "the where". But due to lingual restrictions and due to the limits of our brains, we do not know better than saying Allah is everywhere, thus we say it metaphorically.
