    Hezbollah And Assad Gain Yabroud

    BEIRUT - Government forces backed by Hezbollah fighters took full control of the Syrian town of Yabroud on Sunday after driving out rebel fighters, state media said, helping President Bashar Assad to secure the land route linking the capital Damascus to the former commercial hub of Aleppo and the Mediterranean coast. The fall of Yabroud, the last rebel bastion near the Lebanese border, would also choke off a vital insurgent supply line from Lebanon and consolidate government control over a swathe of territory from Damascus to the central city of Homs.

    حدثني محمد بن قولويه القمي، قال حدثني محمد بن بندار القمي، عن أحمد بن محمد البرقي، عن أبيه محمد بن خالد، عن أحمد بن النضر الجعفي، عن عباد بن بشير، عن ثوير بن أبي فاختة، قال : خرجت حاجا فصحبني عمر بن ذر القاضي و ابن قيس الماصر و الصلت بن بهرام، و كانوا إذا نزلوا منزلا قالوا انظر الآن فقد حررنا أربعة آلاف مسألة نسأل أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) منها عن ثلاثين كل يوم، و قد قلدناك ذلك، قال ثوير فغمني ذلك حتى إذا دخلنا المدينة فافترقنا، فنزلت أنا على أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) فقلت له جعلت فداك ابن ذر و ابن قيس الماصر و الصلت صحبوني و كنت أسمعهم يقولون قد حررنا أربعة آلاف مسألة نسأل أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) عنها فغمني ذلك . فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) ما يغمك من ذلك ؟ فإذا جاءوا فأذن لهم . فلما كان من غد دخل مولى لأبي جعفر (عليه السلام) فقال جعلت فداك بالباب ابن ذر و معه قوم . فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) : يا ثوير قم فأذن لهم . فقمت فأدخلتهم ; فلما دخلوا سلموا و قعدوا و لم يتكلموا، فلما طال ذلك أقبل أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) يستنبئهم الأحاديث و أقبلوا لا يتكلمون . فلما رأى ذلك أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) قال لجارية له يقال لها سرحة هاتي الخوان فلما جاءت به فوضعته، فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) الحمد لله الذي جعل لكل شي‏ء حدا ينتهى إليه حتى أن لهذا الخوان حدا ينتهى إليه . فقال ابن ذر : و ما حده ؟ قال : إذا وضع ذكر الله و إذا رفع حمد الله . قال، ثم أكلوا، ثم قال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) : اسقيني . فجاءته بكوز من أدم فلما صار في يده . قال : الحمد لله الذي جعل لكل شي‏ء حدا ينتهى إليه حتى أن لهذا الكوز حدا ينتهى إليه . فقال ابن ذر : و ما حده ؟ قال : يذكر اسم الله عليه إذا شرب و يحمد الله إذا فرغ و لا يشرب من عند عروته و لا من كسر إن كان فيه . قال، فلما فرغوا ; أقبل عليهم يستفتيهم الأحاديث فلا يتكلمون . فلما رأى ذلك أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) قال يا ابن ذر أ لا تحدثنا ببعض ما سقط إليكم من حديثنا . قال : بلى يا ابن رسول الله، قال، إني تارك فيكم الثقلين أحدهما أكبر من الآخر كتاب الله و أهل بيتي إن تمسكتم بهما لن تضلوا . فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) : يا ابن ذر إذا لقيت رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) فقال ما خلفتني في الثقلين ؟ فما ذا تقول له ؟ قال : فبكى ابن ذر حتى رأيت دموعه تسيل على لحيته، ثم قال، أما الأكبر فمزقناه و أما الأصغر فقتلناه . فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) : إذن تصدقه يا ابن ذر، لا و الله لا تزول قدم يوم القيامة حتى يسأله عن ثلاث عن عمره فيما أفناه و عن ماله من أين اكتسبه و فيما أنفقه و عن حبنا أهل البيت . قال، فقاموا و خرجوا . فقال أبو جعفر (عليه السلام) لمولى له : اتبعهم فانظر ما يقولون ؟ قال : فتبعهم ثم رجع , فقال : جعلت فداك سمعتهم يقولون لابن ذر على هذا خرجنا معك ؟ فقال : ويلكم اسكتوا ما أقول لرجلا يزعم أن الله يسألني عن ولايته ؟ و كيف أسأل رجلا يعلم حد الخوان و حد الكوز؟ 394. Narrated to me Muhammad b. Qulawayh al-Qummi who said: narrated to me Muhammad b. Bundar al-Qummi from Ahmad b. Muhammad al-Barqi from his father Muhammad b. Khalid from Ahmad b. al-Nadhr al-Ju'fi from `Abbad b. Bashir (or `Abbad b. Kathiyr) from Thuwayr b. Abi Fakhita who said: I came out to perform the Hajj (from Kufa) whilst accompanied by Umar b. Dhar - the Judge, and Ibn Qays al-Masir, and al-Salt b. Bihram, and whenever they used to disembark at a station (along the way) they would say: watch now! (i.e. at what happens) - for we have written down four thousand questions - we will ask Abu Ja’far thirty questions from these every day, and we have put you in charge of that (i.e. given you the task of facilitating this), Thuwayr said: so this fact grieved me - until we entered Madina and went our seprate ways (i.e. for lodging), so I disembarked upon Abi Ja'far عليه السلام (at his place) and said to him: may I be made your ransom, Ibn Dhar and Ibn Qays al-Masir and al-Salt accompanied me, and I used to hear them saying: we have written down four thousand questions which we shall ask Aba Ja'far about – and that grieved me, so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: and what grieves you about that? so if they come - permit them (to enter). So when it was the morrow (the next day) - a Mawla of Abu Ja'far entered and said: may I be made your ransom, at the door is Ibn Dhar and there is a group with him, so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: O Thuwayr - arise and give them permission to enter, so I stood and welcomed them, so when they had entered – they bid their greetings and sat, and did not speak, so when that (the silence) had continued for a long time - Abu Ja'far عليه السلام began inquiring from them about the Ahadith (which they narrate), while they remained silent. So when Abu Ja'far عليه السلام saw that - he said to a female slave of his who was called Surha - bring the plate (of food), so when she had brought it and placed it, Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: All praise is due to Allah who has set up for everything a limit - at which (i.e. by fulfilling it to its limit) it (i.e. that thing) ends (i.e. is appropriately completed), so much so that even this plate has a limit at which it ends, so Ibn Dhar said to him: and what is its limit? he عليه السلام said: when it is placed - Allah is mentioned, and when it is lifted - Allah is praised, he (Thuwayr) said: then they ate together, then Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: give me to drink, so she (Suhra) came with a vessel made of skin (filled with water), so when it was in his hands, he عليه السلام said: All praise is due to Allah who has set up for everything a limit - at which (i.e. by fulfilling it to its limit) it (i.e. that thing) ends (i.e. is appropriately completed), so much so that even this vessel has a limit at which it ends, so Ibn Dhar said: and what is its limit? he عليه السلام said: the name of Allah is mentioned over it when you drink from it, and Allah is praised when you finish (drinking from it), and it is not drunk from the side of its handle, nor from a crack present in it - if it has one, he (Thuwayr) said: so when they were done, Abu Ja'far عليه السلام began asking them about the Ahadith (which they narrate), while they did not speak. So when Abu Ja'far عليه السلام saw that - he said: O Ibn Dhar, will you not narrate to us some of what has dropped to you from our Hadith (i.e. narrations about us)? he (Ibn Dhar) said: definitely - O the son of the messenger of Allah, the messenger of Allah said: 'I leave behind me in your midst two weighty things, one of them is greater than the other, the book of Allah and the people of my House, if you hold on to them you will not go astray', so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: O Ibn Dhar, if you meet the messenger of Allah and if he asks: how did you deal with the two weighty things after me (in my absence)? what will you reply to him? he (Thuwayr) said: so Ibn Dhar began crying until I saw his tears flowing down into his beard - then he said: as for the greater one - then we have torn it apart (disintegrated it), and as for the smaller one - then we have killed it, so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: then you would have told him the truth O Ibn Dhar (i.e. if you reply to him like this), No, by Allah! a foot will not be lifted (move) on the day of judgement until three questions are asked (i.e. to the owner of the foot): about his life - in what did he pass it? about his wealth - from where did he obtain it and in what did he spend it? and about his love for us - the Ahlulbayt, he (Thuwayr) said: so they stood and left. So Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said to a Mawla of his - follow them and observe what they say (to each other), he (Thuwayr) said: so he followed them and returned after a while and said: may I be made your ransom, I heard them saying to Ibn Dhar - is it for this that we came out with you?! so he said: woe upon you - be silent! what do I say to a man who claims that Allah will ask me about his Wilaya?! and how do I ask a man who knows the limits of the plate and the vessel?! NOTES: - Ibn Dhar, Ibn Qays and al-Salt were Murj'i proto-Sunni scholars and Hadith specialists, they expected by preparing these four thousand questions [in jurisprudence] that they could challenge the Imam, and perhaps even make it difficult for him and humiliate him, but as we have seen, when they entered upon him - it was as though they were struck by muteness in his presence, they could not speak anything, they only spoke when they were spoken to and not otherwise. - The Imam used the words 'dropped to you' - because they did not access them from the right source, that is - the Ahlulbayt themselves, so it was just like crumbs that were gathered here and there because of having a common source [coincidentally and not by a conscious decision]. - As for the protagonists of this Hadith, Thuwayr has been seen in a negative light by the proponents of proto-Sunni narrator criticism who weakened him, as found in their books of biographical evaluations. قلت ليونس بن أبي إسحاق : مالك لا تروي عن ثوير ، فإن إسرائيل كتب عنه؟ قال : إسرائيل أعلم ما صنع به، كان رافضيا. وقال الحاكم : لم ينقم عليه إلا التشيّع For example, when Yunus b. Abi Ishaq was asked – why do you not narrate from Thuwayr while Israil had written down from him? he said: Israil knows what he did with him (why he did what he did with him i.e. write down from him) – ‘he was a Rafidhi’. And al-Hakim said: nothing caused a grudge against him except his Tashayyu. While the others (Ibn Dhar, Ibn Qays and al-Salt) - despite being acknowledged as the leaders of the Murj'i sect in Kufa and its founders – they were all seen as worshippers, pious, Thiqat (trustworthy), and the best of the narrators in Kufah of their time and the most truthful of all its people (ref. to the Taqrib of Ibn Hajar).

    Barriers For Marriage.

    Salam, I know there are many single brothers and sisters on SC. I also know that most of them want to get married. So maybe we can come up with a list of the 'top three' or 'top five' barriers to marriage in the modern world and propose some steps to overcome them. From my single days, I can tell you the top three things that delayed me getting married (which I regret now). This is from a male perspective. 1) Money, or lack of money and financial resources to support a family 2) Prejudice / Cultural baggage. I only want my daughter to marry an Iraqi, Lebanese, Iranian, Paki, etc. 3) Non-acceptance by Shia of Muta' or fixed term marriage. It is halal, but try asking. Solutions 1) Earn enough to supply the basics (food, clothing, shelter for you and your wife) and once you are married, continue to make efforts to improve your living situation 2) Learn to make a case for yourself and speak up. (I'm a good guy, despite the fact that I'm not Iraqi, etc) 3) More brothers and sisters doing mutah openly and more Islamic education

    Barriers For Marriage.

    Absolutely true. So I guess the parents are the ones who need to be educated, not the young adults. The sad thing is if nothing changes the next generation will have the exact same issues, all in the name of "I want my kids to have it better than I did."

    Including people by embracing our culture can be a very positive thing - but using culture as a reason to exclude others not of your race/ethnicity/culture (however it is expressed), is ultimately a very negative thing.

    Barriers For Marriage.

    Biggest barrier to marriage: Parents. Parents. Parents. And their idealistic and misguided expectations. You don't need much money to be married - if you are a self-sufficient adult before you marry, you will do fine. You don't need to marry someone from within your ethnicity or culture. Marry someone who has compatible goals and values. You don't need a degree or job to get married - but you do need plans, goals, and you need to be willing to work toward them. What you do need is to be flexible, compassionate, intelligent, and let go of all your expectations and just live as a good Muslim and enjoy life.

    There is an interesting book out by James Dunn called "Did the First Christians Worship Jesus?" ... in chapter 4 of that book he seems to suggest that Jesus was not God. Here is part of a review of the book that talks about Chapter Four: This chapter also includes treatment of key passages from Paul’s letters, such as Philippians 2:6-11 and 1 Corinthians 8:6. In the latter, Dunn highlights that one God is affirmed, and what is said about the one Lord uses prepositions indicative of agency (p.109). And in 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 it is felt to be particularly clear that “the kyrios title is not so much a way of identifying Jesus with God, as a way of distinguishing Jesus from God” (p.110). Dunn regards Hurtado’s case for the Christ-devotion of the New Testament Christians having been controversial in their time as “surprisingly weak” (p.113), and draws attention to the lack of evidence for such controversy. Also in this chapter are treatments of the Book of Revelation, Jesus as God/god and Jesus as Last Adam. Here is the link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0664231969/ref=s9_simh_gw_p14_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1C7MK1A4FG23C0DGVEJJ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846 I would add my own two cents. I think Paul might have been a bit lost, but I don't think he was a devil worshiper or whatnot (I find that quite offensive honestly). Any decent Muslim who reads him can gain many spiritual insights from him. This doesn't mean that everything he said was right, but he did say a whole lot that was quite deep, thoughtful and even beneficial for us Muslims who like to think about Allah, morality and our overall purpose in life. I have especially enjoyed his discussions in Corinthians on why people disbelieve, why kufr leads to immorality and how sins alter our perceptions and intellect.

    Barriers For Marriage.

    Salam, Barriers: Finishing education, alot of people like to focus at one thing a time. Female docters delay the most in my view because they have alot more studies. Their are men that are not supportive and dont care about education, some dont even approve of your degree, its like nothing to them. Some men are just jealous, and they dont want you to successed... Men taking your freedom away, meaning he wants to be incharge of ever little thing. Their is an extant to how much you can take charge of,you cant push the limit... Seeing faild marriages... You need to help your parents. I would like to add that it's not just men that support their family,females support them too. If you dont have a brother, its like duty to support them. Solution Get a educated patner, try to balance out stuides and marriage. Delay pregrence/children will studying. Or just marry after you finish your 3 years at university. Find someone that appricates you and respects you and what you have accomplished. Not all men will take your freedom away, you just need to find that 2%,lool. Just explain to him your not used to some things. Sometimes we can take this freedom thing too far without noticing, we want to be equal we want to be as good as the oppisite, we feel like that if we given in the other person will only take. In some cases they do take and not give but remmber some men will give more then you think. Look at the positive aspcte of marriage. Delay children just in case it doesnt work out. Look at people that have a great relationship and ask questions and understand how and why they have a good marriage. Find a better job,lol. Oh I forgot, some people just dont get any proposales, not many people know them and some people dont like to go to commuinty events and some are just shy. Offcourse the soultion would be to goo to events but that will not guarante them a proposal.

    Jami` al-Tirmidhi, Volume 6, hadith 3733: Chain: Nasr b. `Ali al-Jahdami from `Ali b. Ja`far (ra) from Musa b. Ja`far (as) from Ja`far b. Muhammad (as) from Muhammad b. `Ali (as) from `Ali b. al-Husayn (as) from al-Husayn (as) from `Ali b. Abi Talib (as) from the Prophet (pbuh). Content: Those who [sincerely] love the Prophet, `Ali, Fatima, al-Hasan and al-Husayn will be with the Prophet (pbuh) in Paradise. Although Tirmidhi graded this hadith as hasan gharib (good, solitary narration), the editor (either Darussalam or Zubair `Ali Za`i) weakened the hadith and left a note at the bottom. The note was left untranslated, but it says that the hadith is mastoor - meaning, it is an unknown narrator and/or an unknown hadith, and most Sunni rijalists do not accept unknowns. It then says, "No one authenticated him except Tirmidhi. And al-Mutawakkil the Abbasid Caliph wanted to strike him with 1,000 lashes (Tarikh al-Khateeb)" Up from Nasr b. `Ali al-Jahdami we see the golden chain, which is superior to all chains. The only Nasr b. `Ali in Shi`i books is one who narrates five times altogether, and his status is unknown. But, let's look deeper into the status of this man in Sunni books: قال عبد الله بن أحمد : سألت أبي عنه ، فقال : ما به بأس ، ورضيه . `Abdillah b. Ahmad said: I asked my father about him, so he said: There is no problem with him. And he approved him. وقال عبد الرحمن بن أبي حاتم : سألت أبي عن نصر بن علي ، وعمرو بن علي الصيرفي : من أيهما أحب إليك ؟ قال : نصر أحب إلي ، وأوثق وأحفظ ، نصر ثقة. And `Abd ar-Rahman b. Abi Hatim said: I asked my father about Nasr b. `Ali and `Amr b. `Ali as-Sayrafi: which of the two is more beloved by you? He said: Nasr is more beloved to me, and more reliable, and he has better memorization(?). Nasr is reliable. وقال النسائي وابن خراش : ثقة. And an-Nasa'i and Ibn Kharash said: Reliable. وقال عبد الله بن محمد الفرهياني : نصر عندي من نبلاء الناس . And `Abdillah b. Muhammad al-Farhayani said: Nasr to me is from the noblest of people. --- In the hadith below, Nasr relates this hadith to the Caliph al-Mutawakkil: عبد الله بن أحمد بن حنبل : حدثني نصر بن علي ، أخبرني علي بن جعفر بن محمد ، حدثني أخي موسى ، عن أبيه ، عن أبيه ، عن علي بن حسين ، عن أبيه ، عن جده: أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- : أخذ بيد حسن وحسين ، فقال : مَنْ أحبَّني وأحبَّ هذين وأبَاهُمَا وأُمَّهُمَا ، كان معي في درجتي يوم القيامة . قلت : هذا حديث منكر جـدا . ثم قال عبد الله بن أحمد : لما حدث نصر بهذا ، أمر المتوكل بضربه ألف سوط ، فكلمه جعفر بن عبد الواحد ، وجعل يقول له : الرجل من أهل السنة ، ولم يزل به حتى تركه . وكان له أرزاق ، فوفرها عليه موسى . `Abdillah b. Ahmad b. Hanbal said: This hadith is very weak. Then `Abdillah b. Ahmad said: When Nasr narrated this, al-Mutwakkil ordered to strike him 1,000 lashes. So Ja`far b. `Abd al-Wahid talked to him, and said to him: This man is from Ahl as-Sunna! And I will not leave him until he is left alone. And he (Nasr?) had wealth, so Musa saved it for him. --- So here, we see that Nasr was considered a good, trustworthy Sunni narrator. Yet, his narration of a hadith that sounded Shi`i in content almost got him lashed 1,000 times under the `Abbasi Caliphate. We also find that the hadith is being weakened by reactionary rijalists, even though Nasr received high praise, and the rest of the chain consisted of the scholars and Imams of Ahl al-Bayt. Even if this hadith were a solitary one, that does not negate the strength of its chain. The claim that this hadith of Imam Ja`far's was unheard of stems from the rejection of most of Ja`far's students as Rawafid heretics. This is yet again another effort to cover up the too-Shi`i side of the Imams (as). Hadiths like this suggest to readers that the Ahl al-Bayt really did teach what the Shi`a attribute to them. And that is, that the love and wilaya of Ahl al-Bayt are pivotal to the salvation of every person. al-Mutawakkil's reaction to the hadith confirms the suffering that actual Shi`as endured; and it establishes the need for the Imams and their followers to have kept quiet over such issues. If hatred of `Ali is hypocrisy, then what can we say about those who raised the sword against him and killed tens of thousands of Muslims?

I wonder what is worse for the arab society to deal with; their defeat and the following shame or the treachery of their own political, intellectual and religious leadership? CLynn: Of course he's not serving God. His interest is to conquer the lands of Another people; removing them from their land through any possible means & pacify a potential resistance. This is how warlike tribes and people Think about stuff like this, particularly the israelis who Believe that they are a "chosen race of God" putting everyother human Community as the de-facto "untermensch"..

    Embarassed And Depressed

    Lets us think from the point of view of the agrressor. The aggressor- He is talking on the phone and is looking for some privacy. He can walk to a secluded place and talk, but he does not. He decides to tell a kid to get away from his place. Why? He has something that you are not aware of. A gun or he himself is a martial arts expert or simply a bully and genrally gets away with what he wants. So he asks you to take a walk. Does he think you will retaliate? No, he believes not. Mainly because you are younger than him. What does that give him? Now that is a difficult question. Satisfaction, maybe? Is he a sadist? Is he a racist? probably both. Your response, "Who me?". That was an good response in itself. It showed that you did not care who that guy was. But then you decide to walk away. Now, what is worng in it? You have acted in a safe manner in a ambigious situation . That is entirely fine. Alternate scenario- You said, "I wont, so what?".or "what if I dont?" The guy raises his fist and there is a fight (The gun scenario looks too extreme). Maybe this is what you presently wish had happenned. So that you could punch him real hard. Right? My opinion- If you walked out from an ambigious situation, there is nothing to worry or think about. Being safe is not being foolish. In such a wierd scenario, it is normal for people to make decisions that they would have not made otherwise. The next time you see that guy, look him straight in the eye and he will cast his look down.

    Hezbollah And Assad Gain Yabroud

    Yea, like the map of Qusayr is chaning every week! :) Yea, in fact the comment posted really makes sense. And true, the war of liberation is fought by fighters from Saudi, Tunisia, Chechnya, Turkey, Britain, France and 10s of more countries??? 52 counries' fighters you mean? Alongside western, Saudi and Turkish intelligence? It is a big shame when people like you defending rebel-terrorists are speaking of 'foreign' groups or fighters in Syria... by all accounts, confessed and proven by all sides, even the so called opposition now cry about foreign terrorists and they made different groups killing each others.... The difference is: Hizbullah and other Shia fighters went to Syria to DEFEND Lebanese civilians or Zainabya and are doing that, while your terrorist allies went to Syria to ATTACK & KILL civilians, behead, impose your garbage-Salafi Sharia, destroy graves and Shrines, and kill people based on sectarian lines (kill Rafidhis, kill Alawites, kill Christians). AND implement a Zionist-agenda in Syria against regional countries. And the hypocrites as you people are, Turkey declares that if ISIS attacks some Turkish guy's shrine who was one of the important guy of Ottoman empire, then Turkey (who by the way fed these terrorists) will defend Turkey's interests and will respond against the terrorists, reported by all Turkish media, and foreign media yesterday... but Shias do not have the right to intervene and defend civilians who are being slaughtered by foreign terrorists? They don't have the right to defend the Shrine of granddaughter of prophet (pbuh)? And if I am not mistaken, you are the one who under a different nickname posted this news on Yanabi forum where you felt sympathetic to Turkey and shrine of a nobody guy.... ______________________________________________ Turkey will intervene if Ottoman shrine is attacked in Syria Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said in a press conference on Friday that Turkey will intervene to protect a historic Ottoman period shrine in Syria if it is attacked by either side of the conflict. The shrine commemorates the grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Empire. The Suleyman Shah Shrine is located 25 km away from the Turkish border in the Syrian province of Aleppo. It was designated as Turkish territory in a post-World War One agreement between Turkey and France signed in 1921. According to Davutoğlu, the 25 Turkish soldiers protecting the shrine are on high alert after warnings by the militant ISIS group that it will attack the site. "Turkey will respond to whoever attacks the shrine, be it the Syrian regime or extremist groups," he told reporters, "including ISIS." middleeastmonitor.com __________________________ Mr. Davutoglu, 'but Shias do not have the right to intervene and defend civilians who are being slaughtered by foreign terrorists? They don't have the right to defend the Shrine of granddaughter of prophet (pbuh)?'

    It doesn't matter especially because the holy Prophet (pbuh) was more closely related to Abu Lahab (l.a.). Kinship without right actions means nothing in Islam. And if it does mean anything then Bakris, of all people, should hold Imam Ja'far (as) in higher position than some Iraqi scholar of fiqh, since he is related to Abu Bakr? :)

    I don't see a logical contradiction here. Someone who is a "city" of primordial knowledge doesn't need to have formal school education. At the same time, someone who never went to school, despite being a repository of cosmic knowledge, may be able to relate better to simple people who also didn't have formal education and relied more on intuition.

    Man, sorry to know about your situation, really. It bears a big stamp of Karachi (unending violence) Syed (royally special) Urdu (best language, others are rotten) mentality through and through. So all you can do is give more figurative heart attacks to the 'old guard'. They have lived their life, doing whatever, and now it's your turn to live your life, and like in East in East (film), when the Pakistani father scolds his sons for being "bad Pakistanis", he gets told, 'but dad, we're not Pakistani; We're British' :D In the eyes of some, that puts in you in the burger category so it's not something you can fight off really. Just listen to (and ignore) fatwa-labels wherever they come from, and keeping moving on with your life.

    Brother, Turkey has a 90 year old history. Yet, it is the 61th government ruling today. Noting that until 1946, the single pary period was there (founding other parties was banned by Mr. Ataturk and his successors, even in that period there were 14 times changes in the cabinet), it really is like every ONE year, we had a new government mostly through early elections and few with coups. Yes, we had numerous early elections, because, the so-called Independence Tribunals prosecuting every people who were against the government, the army attacks on Islamic revolutionary movements (e.g. Sheikh Said, etc.), arming and sending fascist fools on muslims (a sad example of the many is that of a brave young man, Metin Yüksel) and on especially Kurds (e.g. Dersim), on Alewites (e.g. Maraş Massacre, Çorum Massacre), on Socialists, etc.. None of these attacks were enough to stop the people standing against the regime. That is why the government was always in the verge of a greater revolution, and that is why they always had early elections with new promises by many parties. This might silly to you all, but I believe all parties (ruling and ''opposition'') are the same and they are working together, like in a collusion. And when their tricks had some results that they could not handle, (e.g. when people were fooled by the ''opposition'' parties, and the oppositon parties win and they could not stop or shape their fans, when the people wanted to act by the early promises of their leaders, a revolution was about to emerge with which sincere people could get into the power), so, there was millitary coups to stop this. (Like that of in Egypt lately. Both the early govt. and Mursi were in collusion. But when Mursi, the cunning man, could not handle his followers, sincere people among the movement were on the verge of getting into power. Thus, a millitary coup they had. 1997 coup in Turkey was just like that. Necmettin Erbakan was like the teacher of Mursi. lol. They know the trick of collusion well. And they know how to step back, even ''suffer'' when their sincere followers may have the chance to come into power.) Anyway, you asked me about the options people have. Yes, if the people don't act themselves, rather they let the politicians do anything they want, it seems there only is two options (other parties can not win, they don't have many supporters). And the CHP will probably lose, because the AKP, just with letting the girls wear hijab in certain schools was enough to fool Muslims here. Erdogan will probably get their votes and then continue to work harder for the NATO agenda in and outside the country. (If CHP wins, they can only make Turkish nation suffer, but no other nation, this is the requirement of the policy they have had in this collusion. Whereas if AKP wins, they can make every neighbouring country suffer along with Turks. That's why, to them, the AKP has to win). But, of course, there is always a way out. And it can only be achieved, if people make decisions for themselves, and not let the politicians use them (religious, non-religious; fascist turks, racist kurds, etc.). So inshaAllah the nation gets what they have always wished for, to become a sovereign state.

    Bhai gaari tho meh neh kab ki start ki hui hai. Aap abi thak, mocking ke naam par, jatke mar rahe ho. Siraf aap ki mukamal tawajo ki zarurath hai. Aur is baath ka intezar hai ke aap kab sehih tara shareek ho geh. They will come out with the old and usual excuse: Either the narration is weak or the narrator is unreliable. Same old excuse and same old story. Just deny everything point blank.

    In the English language, atheism is a belief - the belief that there is no God (or gods). My dictionary describes an atheist as someone who believes that God does not exist. Another dictionary defines an atheist as a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings. The word atheism is defined as the doctrine or belief that there is no God.

    Barriers For Marriage.

    There are lots of positive promotion to be married – but you asked for Barriers! -_- I totally agree with your general barriers that you listed – money, ethnicity (and also lots of mixed ethnicity nowadays - oh no!! :o ) and lack of acceptance of temporary marriages. Barriers (self imposed) to nikah marriage for women: Distrust – need to make sure Plan B is firmly in place – school, training, jobs.Loss of independence and freedom of choice – which, ironically, you get used to having when in school, training and jobs…Possible abusive situation from husband or his family – this could be a nightmare. Women look for mature/responsible, caring, financially secure, independent men who are broad minded and flexible. If they can't find them, they put off marriage.

    Barriers For Marriage.

    How about age and maturity? A lot of kids around here want to get married asap, but it's quite obvious that they lack the emotional maturity to shoulder the responsibilities that marriage entails.

    Until atheists can propose a plausible alternative theory as to how we and everything else got here and how it is maintained in perfect order, It will be a belief, and a very shaky one at that.

    Some Mass E-Mobilization Needed

    Derogatory? So if a kettle or pot is called black would that be a derogatory insult in your opinion? Are you hurt to read about his view on homos? Pardon me but I don't get what you're trying to start there. Regards.

    Embarassed And Depressed

    (salam) Dear young one, I know that he made you feel a certain way about yourself; however, I think you reacted as an adult. For a random person to walk up to you and speak to you in such a manner (he might be clinically insane).. I am happy you walked away ;) Imam Baqir, the fifth Imam, (as) said: "No one is safe from sins unless the one controls his/her tongue." [bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 78, p. 178] You might not feel it at the moment, but you are the stronger person in this situation (probably the most intelligent and mature one as well). You used commonsense, you didn't engage with someone who seems mentally disturbed, you guarded your tongue, you protected yourself from committing errors (i.e. sins); pick your head up!! You did the right thing :angel: (wasalam) AB313

    Dear brother, the only thing that you are lacking is not enough knowledge. I would suggest you to research more before you make a decision. From the above posts of yours, It's easy to analyze that your knowledge is still less. You aren't seeing the whole picture. Yes, the caliphs did a lot of good things. Yes, they were praised. Yet they made a few mistakes. Even Sunnis admit that the Caliphs made those mistakes but the difference between them and us is that the Sunni scholars don't consider it a bad act because they say that the caliphs had a reason to do such things. Unfortunately, the reasons the scholars give are not good enough. I myself am a convert from a Sunni. Though I don't curse them. I believe that the caliphs did make mistakes and when I discus those mistakes with my Sunni pals, they also agree that the caliphs did wrong (I also give the lame reasons which the Sunni scholars do yet those pals say that the caliphs were wrong) whereas I myself never call the caliphs wrong in front of anyone yet they see the truth themselves. Then, Why can't you? Brother, I know our Shia brothers can brother harsh here. So, do me a favour and PM me if you wish to discuss the matters. I'll b more than just happy to get back at you. (Salam) !فی امان اللہ

    Imam Zaman (As) Allows Tatbir?

    Many people loved Hossein (as) but when he asked for help, only a few gave their blood for him. People that do Tatbir are expressing that "they are ready"

    20,000 ? These numbers are grossly exaggerated. History is built on documented proof, not made up numbers. Take a look at the Amnesty International report about the executions, here is what they found from their investigation: So what we see is that in reality, the numbers of people executed - that names have been provided for, does not reach higher than 2,000 people, and this is according to Amnesty International. The only groups advocating very high numbers are MKO and other related oppasition groups. The executions took place after MKO invaded iran - with Iraqi support, after Iran already signed the peace treaty. Those in prison were asked to denounce the MKO - and asked if they would be willing to defend Iran against MKO, and asked questions to see if they were still muslim or not. Those who were deemed murtad (apostates) were executed. Is it possible that some people were executed unjustly - any thing is possible Theoretically though - did Iran act against Islamic law? It doesn't appear so.
