    Simple question to Sunnis, please think before you answer, your answer can lead to fundamental problems. You are standing before the start of the Battle of Camel, you haven't decided which side to be on. Ali comes to you and says "Fight for me, I'm on the side of truth". Ayesha comes to you and says "Fight for me, I'm on the side of truth". You have to pick one side, which side would you pick and why?

    Chaotic Muslem


    lol salam, I am addicted on them recently, they are fun. I admire the irtijal of poetry in hosat, the bravery of standing amongst a crowd that contains all sorts of men, the good and the bad then recite a poem related to this very event and maybe even to some conversation that took place few hours/minutes ago. It needs powerful presentation of the event which is not easy. But I am really not sure about one thing, so hosat is done even in funerals? and even then the dancing part takes place ? lol I understand the rithaa poetry in funerals but dancing after rithaa seems odd!

    عنه، عن أبيه، عن ابن سنان، عن الحسين بن المحتار، عن عبدالله بن أبي يعفور، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: لم يكن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول لشئ قدمضى لوكان غيره From him (Ali b. Ibrahim) from his father (Ibrahim b. Hashim) from Ibn Sinan from al-Husayn b. al-Mukhtar from Abdallah b. Abi Ya'fur from Abi Abdillah عليه السلام who said: the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله never used to say about something that has already passed - if only it could have been something else. NOTES: We find people saying about something that has occured - 'if only that had not been - if only this could have occured instead of that', this is against the teachings of the prophet who never contested the decisions of Allah, or second guessed Him, more importantly, we should realize that the past is the past and it cannot be changed.

    Hello, Thanks for replying. I thought I wasnt getting any more responses in my thread. Yeah, I agree with you. The hadith does not prove anything. Well back in school, our teachers were telling us that abu hanifa is the best scholar and imam to follow by simply using the above hadith as their proof. Of course it's ridiculous to think that way that someone will appear like a 100 years after the prophet (PBUH & HF) and will find the true teachings of the prophet. Our brothers form ahlu sunnah should think over this that how could the prophet (PBUH and HF) leave the ummah behind without appointing a successor in order for them to seek guidance after him. As according to us Shia's the prophet PBUH &HF) commanded us to hold to the Quran and his family members, so no one could go astray and as everybody knows this tradition can be found in the most authentic books of sunnis too, but none of them seem to care.

    A real Muslim will never win the nobel peace prize. Only a 'muslim' with not an ounce of dignity left in his soul, who's sold himself as a slave to the 'west', who is for 'progressive muslim' values would be able to win such a 'prize'. Western understanding of peace and tolerance runs contrary to Divine Law and Islam's version of peace and tolerance.

    The Nobel Peace Prize has no meaning. At this point, it is not even a matter of trying to find worthy people to receive the award. Rather, it is about worthy people avoiding doing anything to make them a candidate. The Nobel Peace Prize is irredeemable. It is an all-star team of war criminals and traitors, including such gems: - Henry Kissinger - Shimon Peres - Shirin Ebadi - Barack Obama

    Reply To Swords Of Sunnah

    Aslamoalaikum . I hope every one would be fine with the grace of Allah Almighty. Some months before a user named swords_of_sunnah attacked the infallibility of imam Ali (as). I am enclosing his post in parenthesis. { al-kishi said : كان يدَّعي النبوة وأن عليًّا عليه السلام هو الله، فاستتابه عليه السلام ثلاثة أيام فلم يرجع، فأحرقه في النار في جملة سبعين رجلاً ادَّعوا فيه ذلك he(abdullah ibn saba) used to claim prophethood and that ali(ra) is Allah ( astaghfirollah) so imam ali gave him three days to repent but he refused so he burned him with fire with seventy more men who claimed this also ref: rijel ibn dawood . NOW ACCORDING TO IMAM JAFAR SADIQ BURNING ALIVE IS GINAH KABEERA. The problem was presented to Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (a.s.) and he asked her mother which sin she had committed. When the mother confessed, Imam (a.s.) said that earth would never accept her because she used to punish Allah's creatures with the punishment that only Allah has the right to punish (That is, burning alive). Then Imam (a.s.) told them to place a little turbah in her grave. This was done and then the earth did not convulse when she was buried in it. (Mustanadush Shia) (greater sins the complete book by Ayatullah Abdul Husayn Dastaghaib Shirazi , chapter 56) So this incident can be used to answer multiple arguments of shias, as it is proved from shia texts. 1. Hz ali was not infallible, so this implies to their whole concept that their are masoom and now its proved that they are not. 2. Hz ali was not the most knowledgable, since he too didnt kew some prophetic ahadees. If he would have known he wouldnt have ordered to burn ibn saba alive. And many more as depending upon the situation. } Now its a time for refutation. Point number 1: Now first let us analyze the chain of narration. The chain of narration of this tradition is considered to be the most authentic i agree . Point number 2: the two events have been discussed. First one the burning of Ibne Saba by Imam Ali (as) the second event that is mentioned in the greater sins the complete book by Ayatullah Abdul Husayn Dastaghaib Shirazi.The latter event has not been completely mentioned.In order to relate these to events it will be important to present the entire event from the book by Ayatullah Abdul Husayn Dastaghaib Shirazi. Below is the entire event. “There was a [Edited Out] and whenever she bore an illegitimate progeny, she burned them in the oven due to her fear from her family and no one was aware of this action except her mother. When she died and they wanted to bury her, the earth didn’t accept her and threw her back. They tried to bury her in different places and the same story repeated. when the problem was presented before Imam Jafar-Sadiq(as) and He asked her mother what wrong action your daughter used to do. Then mother revealed her story and Imam said: “The earth doesn’t accept her because she tortured the God’s creature by the God’s torment ”. Then he (as) said “put some Torbat-el-Hossain on her grave” and they did so and earth accepted her.” following thing should be noted that the women in this event used to burn Allah's creature on her own will,, that is the main point. Therefore , it was a major sin. Point 3: Now can we relate this event to the burning of ibne saba??? certainly not because Imam Ali (as) did not burn him according to his own will. He (as) was the slave of Allah Almighty and Allah (SWT) can order his slave to do something. In order to strengthen my point i will present an other authentic tradition . حدثني محمد بن قولويه قال حدثني سعد بن عبد الله قال حدثنا يعقوب بن يزيد و محمد بن عيسى عن علي بن مهزيار عن فضالة بن أيوب الأزدي عن أبان بن عثمان قال سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول لعن الله عبد الله بن سبإ إنه ادعى الربوبية في أمير المؤمنين (ع) و كان و الله أمير المؤمنين (ع) عبدا لله طائعا الويل لمن كذب علينا و إن قوما يقولون فينا ما لا نقوله في أنفسنا نبرأ إلى الله منهم نبرأ إلى الله منهم. Translation: I heard Aboo `Abd Allaah (as) saying: 'May Allaah curse `Abd Allaah bin Saba, he claimed a divinity / lordship for Ameer Al-Mu’mineen (as). By Allaah, Amierul-Mu'mineen (as) was voluntarily the slave of Allah. Woe to him who lie about us, for there are people who say about us what we don't say about ourselves, we disassociate ourselves to Allah from them, we disassociate ourselves to Allah from them'." source ( Al-Kashee, Rijaal, pg. 107, hadeeth # 172) in order to make it more clear let me cite another example. If some one ask me who is the Divine creator and i reply both Allah and Jesus(as) because he (as) used to make birds from clay. Am i right???? definitely wrong because Allah is the only Divine creator but He (SWT) can order his slave to do anything. {Holy Quran 5 :110 إِذْ قَالَ اللَّهُ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ اذْكُرْ نِعْمَتِي عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَىٰ وَالِدَتِكَ إِذْ أَيَّدتُّكَ بِرُوحِ الْقُدُسِ تُكَلِّمُ النَّاسَ فِي الْمَهْدِ وَكَهْلًا ۖ وَإِذْ عَلَّمْتُكَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنجِيلَ ۖ وَإِذْ تَخْلُقُ مِنَ الطِّينِ كَهَيْئَةِ الطَّيْرِ بِإِذْنِي فَتَنفُخُ فِيهَا فَتَكُونُ طَيْرًا بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَتُبْرِئُ الْأَكْمَهَ وَالْأَبْرَصَ بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَإِذْ تُخْرِجُ الْمَوْتَىٰ بِإِذْنِي ۖ وَإِذْ كَفَفْتُ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَنكَ إِذْ جِئْتَهُم بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ فَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ إِنْ هَٰذَا إِلَّا سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ } Translation : [The Day] when Allah will say, "O Jesus, Son of Mary, remember My favor upon you and upon your mother when I supported you with the Pure Spirit and you spoke to the people in the cradle and in maturity; and [remember] when I taught you writing and wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when you designed from clay [what was] like the form of a bird with My permission, then you breathed into it, and it became a bird with My permission; and you healed the blind and the leper with My permission; and when you brought forth the dead with My permission; and when I restrained the Children of Israel from [killing] you when you came to them with clear proofs and those who disbelieved among them said, "This is not but obvious magic." Conclusion: Imam Ali (as) did not burn ibne saba according to his own will. He (as) is the most knowledgeable man after Prophet (saw). He (as) is infallible. Holy Prophet (pbuh) said " I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate."

    We have the benefit of hindsight and we are much more aware of both sides than they were aware of each other's motives and intentions at that point of Fitna. Being someone living in that time, the side you choose would be dependent on many factors such as your relation to Uthman, your relation to Ali, your relation to Aisha, etc.If I am to be sent back in time somehow, I would simply stay away from the Fitna.

    Question To Sunnis: Answer This Scenario

    If people allow themselves to admit the problems that arise from the Quran and ahadith regarding Aisha's character/judgement it would mean she would no longer be considered a reliable narrator for hadith and seeing as see narrates such a substantial proportion of Sunni ahadith this would be obviously problematic. So the only option when it comes to characters like Umar and Aisha seems to be to live with a load of cognitive dissonance and say Allahu alam.

    Salam alaykum, my dear brothers and sisters. Please read these hadiths, and thank Allah for his blessings. _____________________________________________ "The Prophet (saaw) said: 'Ablution is half of faith."

[bihar al-Answar, v.80. p.237, no. 11 Imam al-Baqir (as) said: 'Ablution is one of the boundaries of Allah with which He knows who obeys him and who disobeys him". [Aellal al-Shara'i'a p. 279. no.1 Imam al-Ridha [a] regarding the reason for ablution, said: 'So that the servant is pure when he stands before the Mighty One when engaged in supplication to Him, being obedient to Him through what He has commanded him, purified of filths and impurties, and also because it does away with laziness and repels drowsiness and purifies the heart for standing before the Mighty One". [Aellal al-Shara'i'a, p. 257, no.9 The Prophet (saaw) said: "Allah will ressurect my community on the Day of Resurrection among other communities, having white and illuminated faces from the effects of ablution".

    Googoosh Sings For Sodomites

    Salam, I called their actions bad, not their tendencies (many of our thoughts, tendencies, desires are not in our hands so on one level we can't be condemned for them). One who can control the tendencies is subject to enormous reward by Allah. So by extension, I said the actions should be kept away from public. Those with the tendency should be helped by the community but its manifest actions should not be tolerated. As far as I know, the mainstream Christian view is similar to that of Islam, the problem is with actions, not people.

    Googoosh Sings For Sodomites

    You are writing as if "rights" are universal and unalienable. That is not correct. The central and primary judicial framework of Islam is that of responsibility (in which rights are largely defined by responsibility as well), both towards Allah and the ummah with the underlying goal of human salvation. The function of the ummah is to act as a nurturing cradle for the healthy individual heart to grow and be saved on the Day of Judgment and it is on this basis that responsibilities (and not "rights" as defined by modern state today) take primacy in the legal framework of Islam. Homosexual acts are not only a crime against Alllah, but they are a crime against the ummah as they pollute and corrupt the salvific platform of the ummah. Muslims are not utilitarian, we believe that even the smallest actions affect the spiritual environment which means that sins, especially greater sins (kaba'ir) are particularly egregious in that they put the afterlife of others in danger by corrupting that nurturing cradle and this cannot be tolerated. Now let me be clear, I am not saying that people who have tendencies towards the same sex should be humiliated, "dehumanized" (whatever that means), or randomly attacked or assaulted in the streets. This is haram and goes against Sharia. However, people who do have these tendencies should immediately control their desires and seek help (and seeking help will not incur any Shar'i punishment). If they cannot do so they should keep it private and have the decency to pray to Allah to help them and forgive them. But the hudud are clear in the Shari'a as to what happens when these acts are made public. The Ummah has a right to have mechanisms that protect and keep it healthy from these diseased and criminally sinful acts. As the saying goes in the Biblical proverbs, the beginning of knowledge is fear of God. That is at the essence of rububiyah (lorship) in Islam.

    Man Harrasing Potential Wife

    Salams [edited] Maybe she should slap him so he can move on... Your future wife seems to like the attantion she is getting, because a woman that doesnt want to upset her man would have deleted that guys face along time again. These excuses are just not good, backbiting she says, will tell her if you know soo much about backbiting you would of known by now sending mixed signels is not right... Make sure you dont smack your head on the wall, your wife seems like those men that say 'i dont know' or the onces that cant make a descision, it just makes you want to stab a teddy bear,lool.

    As I said, if any of that did not happen, would you change your stance on the 3? Yes/No? Who is talked about more or less is irrelevant and subjective, the stance on all of them is the same, Shias believe they have dirt on all 3. No. The difference is that Shia's believe in a divinely appointed successor, Sunni's don't. That's where you differ. Shukran, but I'm not a Sunni :P

    All Sects Are Believers ?

    According to the hadith I mentioned in my previous post and also the verdicts of the Shiite maraji', whoever states the words of shahaadayn enters the realm of Islam and the Islamic rulings are applicable to them, until they deny the shahaada literally or practically. As far as individuals are concerned, one is not allowed to ascribe kufr to them as long as they claim to be Muslims, unless he/ she is certain, through their words or actions that they don't really believe in Islam.

    Whatever the case may be, the evidences you provided can only give IMPLICATIONS, while the verses I provided were all explicit. Also, you did not provide any authentic hadiths showing that the Imams(pbut) encouraged or supported it, which leads me to believe that there is little to no proof that they did. Therefore, this is a grey area, a grey area involving the worst of sins, so I think I will continue to refrain from asking prophets and imams for help, until indisputable logic and evidence comes to me proving otherwise. Thanks for your input though ! as well as providing me with the sources so that I can begin looking into this further. Jazakallah Khair akhi!

    Rijal Al-Kashi

    حدثني محمد بن قولويه و الحسين بن الحسن بن بندار القمي، قالا حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن يونس بن عبد الرحمن، أن بعض أصحابنا سأله و أنا حاضر، فقال له يا أبا محمد ما أشدك في الحديث و أكثر إنكارك لما يرويه أصحابنا فما الذي يحملك على رد الأحاديث ؟ فقال : حدثني هشام بن الحكم : أنه سمع أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول لا تقبلوا علينا حديثا إلا ما وافق القرآن و السنة أو تجدون معه شاهدا من أحاديثنا المتقدمة، فإن المغيرة بن سعيد لعنه الله دس في كتب أصحاب أبي أحاديث لم يحدث بها أبي، فاتقوا الله و لا تقبلوا علينا ما خالف قول ربنا تعالى و سنة نبينا (صلى الله عليه و آله) فإنا إذا حدثنا قلنا قال الله عز و جل و قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) قال يونس وافيت العراق فوجدت بها قطعة من أصحاب أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) و وجدت أصحاب أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) متوافرين فسمعت منهم و أخذت كتبهم، فعرضتها من بعد على أبي الحسن الرضا (عليه السلام) فأنكر منها أحاديث كثيرة أن يكون من أحاديث أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) و قال لي إن أبا الخطاب كذب على أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) لعن الله أبا الخطاب و كذلك أصحاب أبي الخطاب يدسون هذه الأحاديث إلى يومنا هذا في كتب أصحاب أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) ، فلا تقبلوا علينا خلاف القرآن، فإنا إن تحدثنا حدثنا بموافقة القرآن و موافقة السنة إنا عن الله و عن رسوله نحدث، و لا نقول قال فلان و فلان فيتناقض كلامنا إن كلام آخرنا مثل كلام أولنا و كلام أولنا مصادق لكلام آخرنا، فإذا أتاكم من يحدثكم بخلاف ذلك فردوه عليه و قولوا أنت أعلم و ما جئت به فإن مع كل قول منا حقيقة و عليه نورا، فما لا حقيقة معه و لا نور عليه فذلك من قول الشيطان 401. Narrated to me Muhammad b. Qulawayh AND al-Husayn b. al-Hasan b. Bundar al-Qummi – both of whom said: narrated to us Sa’d b. Abdallah who said: narrated to me Muhammad b. Isa b. Ubayd from Yunus b. Abd al-Rahman – that one of our companions asked him (i.e. Yunus) while I was present (i.e. Muhammad b. Isa b. Ubayd) – so he (i.e. the companion) said to him (i.e. Yunus): O Aba Muhammad - what made you stringent in the matter of the Hadith (i.e. made you adopt a critical attitude to it) and increased your rejection of what is narrated by our companions - so what leads you to reject the Ahadith? So he (i.e. Yunus) said: Hisham b. al-Hakam narrated to me that he heard Aba Abdillah عليه السلام saying: do not accept a Hadith on our authority except that which agrees with the Qur’an and the Sunna or you find for it a Shahid (witness) from our past Ahadith, for al-Mughira b. Said – may Allah curse him – has interpolated into the books of the companions of my father (i.e. al-Baqir عليه السلام) Ahadith which were not narrated by my father, so fear Allah, and do not accept on our authority that which opposes the words of our lord – the Exalted – and the Sunna of our prophet صلى الله عليه و آله, for when we (the Ahlulbayt) narrate we only do so saying - ‘Allah الله عز و جل said’ and ‘the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه و آله said’, Yunus said: and I travelled to (i.e. reached) Iraq, so I found in it a small portion of the remaining companions of Abi Ja’far عليه السلام and I found in it a large number of the companions of Abi Abdillah عليه السلام, so I heard from them and took their books, so I presented them to Abi al-Hasan al-Ridha عليه السلام at a later time after that – so he rejected a lot of the Ahadith in them that they could possibly be the Ahadith of Aba Abdillah عليه السلام and he (i.e. al-Ridha) said: verily Aba al-Khattab had lied upon Abi Abdillah عليه السلام - may Allah curse Aba al-Khattab, and likewise, the companions of Aba al-Khattab do insert these Ahadith into the books of the companions of Aba Abdillah عليه السلام to this day of ours, so do not accept on our authority that which is against the Qur’an, for when we narrate we only do narrate what is in agreement with the Qur’an and in agreement with the Sunna, we narrate only on the authority of Allah and on the authority of the prophet, we do not say – so and so said (the following) and so and so said (the following) (i.e. we do not narrate from fallibles) - such that our words could ever contradict, the words of the last one of us is like the words of the first one of us, and the words of the first one of us collaborates (accredits) the words of the last one of us, so if anyone comes to you narrating a Hadith which opposes that - repel it back to him and say: you know best in regards what you have brought (its origins and circumstances), for there is for every word originating from us a truth with it and a light upon it, so what does not have a truth with it and no light upon it then it is from the words of the Shaytan. (Sahih) NOTES: This proactive stance of Yunus is in direct opposition to the stance of the Qumiyyun whereby they made Tawaquf for any Hadith that they found suspicious, examples of which have come before in this translation, the Qummis would fear rejecting a Hadith even if it appeared to directly contradict the Qur'an, this is one of the reasons why the Qumiyyun weakened Yunus b. Abd al-Rahman despite him being one of the foremost companions (apart from his rationalistic based theological views inherited from the school of Hisham b. al-Hakam - one of his primary mentors). One also finds Ahadith propagating caution in rejecting Ahadith, this attitude would be opposite to what Yunus seems to be doing here, unless this apparent contradiction is resolved, and the real message of the Aimmah is revealed by study. All this is left for a more in-depth investigation by the students of Ilm.

    I Am An Atheist. Who Wants A Debate?

    it is not the matter of being confrontational , because I think you're more like: emotional! the whole story is about this: if you are ignorant about something, you can't deny its existence. none of the messengers who were sent by God, managed to take all humanity to believe in God, that's the significant part of the story, the way for disbelief in God never will be shut as long as you are alive in this world, but the matter of the fact is: you will never be able to prove them wrong, you are always able to express your ignorance and dizziness about immaterial issues not their impossibility. if you could prove the impossibility of immaterial world, I would gladly become an atheist but I'm sure you can't, you only are able to express your doubts about it, that's why you always repeat: let me debunk your beliefs. you see? you don't have anything of your own. many great skeptical thinkers have been recorded is human history who were much stronger than you, but you have not studied about them. you even don't know the difference between agnosticism and atheism. I believe in immaterial world because I trust the messengers of God who brought divine scriptures to humanity, you may not trust them, as many didn't, don't and will never do until they die. however, I think it's safer to trust them, just in case there is something after I die! and anyway I don't see any harm in having a balanced belief in God, considering many "signs" for his existence, it's a win-win deal while what you're doing is a little risky, considering the "eternal" life. no prophet claimed to be able to convince people of this kind, how would I claim the ability to convince you? since you don't WANT to. these kinds of arguments are not something new, Holy Qur'an has foretold everything: The parable of (calling to) the faithless is that of someone who shouts after that which does not hear anything Had We sent down to you a Book on paper so they could touch it with their own hands, still the faithless would have said," This is nothing but plain magic." When they come to you, to dispute with you, the faithless say," These are nothing but myths of the ancients." Yet if you say," You will indeed be raised up after death," the faithless will surely say," This is nothing but plain magic." The faithless say," You have not been sent by Allah ." Say," Allah suffices as a witness between me and you. Whenever the faithless see you they only take you in derision:" Those who are faithless persist in their doubt about it, until the Hour overtakes them suddenly Certainly we have drawn for mankind in this Qur'an every kind of parable. Indeed if you bring them a sign, the faithless will surely say," You are nothing but fabricators!" there are a lot more.

She was caught in the middle of debris from the ongoing violence in Syria and left for dead. When rescuers came to save her, she was more concerned about her Hijab than anything else.

    A finite universe is one in which indefinite regression of finite causation would have to be occurring, but this is impossible due to each cause needed a cause for itself going on forever. This chain would need to find itself at a beginning in order for it to be a valid explanation, however there can be no true beginning in a finite model since that beginning will likewise need its own causation to occur. The universe itself is easily proven as finite due to the very nature of our own thoughts, it is not even necessary to employ empirical data to prove such a thing, but rather we are consciously aware of the separation of our own thoughts as independent, and in need of causation. Therefore, these models being insufficient explanations (as well as magic, since this would just be another finite source of causation), then there is the need of an Infinite Being that is the source of all things, relying upon nothing, outside all constraints that define a thing to be finite (time, and all other dimensions). Indeed, direct understanding of God is not possible for a finite being, but what I have spoken on does not rely on direct understanding or limitation upon God, rather it demonstrates an evident need for the existence of such a Being to sufficiently explain finite existence.

    this is a question asked from Ayatollah Khamenei concerning this topic: Q: Concerning the taqlīd issue, whom should we follow? A: It is obligatory to follow a mujtahid who meets all requirements needed for issuing a fatwā and functioning as a marji‘. And according to caution, he should be the most learned as well. but how to choose one among all of these Mujtahids : Q: What are the methods for selecting a marji‘? A: Ijtihād of a marji‘ and that he is the most learned one is verified through examining him and becoming certain, even if due to publicity which makes one certain or confident, or the testimony of two just experts. (Ayatollah Khamenei, Q&As)

    a better one: Shias who prostrate on earth, worship clay. Prostration on an object implies idol worship. Sunnis prostrate on prayer mates, therefore they worship it.

    What beautiful logic, I am honestly amazed by this person's sophisticated intellect and his delicate and precise application of logic. I even benefited from his method and came up with my own theory. People who wear showls over their heads are Jews. Sunnis wear showls over their heads. Sunnis are jews.

    Help- How To Answer A Disbeliever?

    Assalam u Alaykum This is the complete verse: "Have you not considered him (Namrud) who disputed with Ibrahim about his Lord, because Allah had given him the kingdom? When Ibrahim said: My Lord is He who gives life and causes to die, he said: I give life and cause death. Ibrahim said: So surely Allah causes the sun to rise from the east, then make it rise from the west; thus he who disbelieved was confounded; and Allah does not guide aright the unjust people" The verse is referring to a debate or a 'challenge' of Ibrahim to Namrud to make the sun rise from the west, if he was indeed a deity. From their point of view - infact, from the point of view of any laymen and/or observer on Earth and/or the naked eye - the sun does rise from the east. The focus of the verse is not the movements of celestial bodies;rather, a challenge to earthly Gods to change the nature of their existence.

    (salam) (bismillah) As I said on the other topic regarding this. You cannot take hadeeth from the Sunni books of "Only Allah burns people", then apply that hadeeth in our Shee`ah books. It doesn't work like that. From what I have seen, there is not an authentic hadeeth which says that only Allah can burn people, since this is the case, then there is nothing really to be said. (salam)
