    One of the most common excuses to cover up the context of the Ghadir Khumm speech is that mawla means friend or ally, but all of these famous scholars from Ahlul Sunnah say that mawla, in this context, means awla, which me ands first in authority. But forget our obvious and logical argument, look at these famous scholars from Ahlul Sunnah who agree with us. 1. al-Wahidi (d. 468), in "al-Wasit" 2. al-Akhfash Nahwi (d. 215), in "Nihayat al-Uqul" 3. al-Tha’labi (d. 427), in "al-Kashf wal Bayan" 4. Ibn Qutaybah (d. 276), in "al-Qurtayan", v2, p164 5. al-Kalbi (d. 146, quoted in "Tafsir al-Kabir", by al-Razi, v29, p227) 6. al-Farra’ (as quoted in "Ruhul Ma’ani", by al-Alusi, v27, p178) 7. al-Nasafi (d. 701), in his "Tafsir", v4, p229 8. al-Tabari (d. 310), in "Tafsir al-Tabari", v9, p117 9. al-Bukhari (d. 215), in "Sahih al-Bukhari", v7, p271 10. al-Zamakhshari (d. 538), in "Tafsir al-Kashshaf", v2, p435 11. Qazi Nasiruddin al-Baydawi (d. 692), in "tafsir al-Baydawi", v2, p497 12. al-Khazin al-Baghdadi (d. 741), in his "Tafsir", v4, p229 13. Muhib al-Din al-Afandi, in "Tanzil al-Ayat" 14. Mu’ammar Ibn Muthanna al-Basri (as quoted in "Sharh al-Mawaqif", by al-Sharif al-Jurjani, v3, p271) 15. Abul Abbas Tha’lab (as quoted in "Sharh al-Sab’ah al-Mu’allaqah", by al-Zuzani) 16. Ibn Abbas, in his "Tafsir”written on the margin of Durr al-Manthur, v5, p355 17. Abu al-Saud al-Hanafi (d. 972), in his "Tafsir" 18. and many more such as Yahya Ibn Zaid Kufi (d. 207), Abu Ubaida Basri (d. 210), Abu Zaid Ibn Aus Basri (d. 125), Abu Bakr Anbari (d. 328), Abul Hasan Rummani (d. 384), Sa’d al-Din Taftazani (d. 791), Shaba Uddin Khafaji (d. 1069), Hamzawi Maliki (d. 1303), Husayn Ibn Mas’d (d. 510), Abu Baqa Ukbari (d. 616), Ibn Hajar al-Haythmai (d. 974), Sharif Jurjani (d. 618), Abdul Abbas Mubarrad (d. 285), Abu Nasr Farabi (d. 393) and, Abu Zakariya Khateeb Tarizi (d. 502),... Only a couple try and cover it up and say it means friend, and you accept their lies. How can you not accept the wilayah of Ali looking at those? Mawla means first in authority in this context, not according to us, but your scholars analysis and us May Allah guide you towards the obvious truth.

    Salaam, I need prayers for myself and my two kids. I don't want to share my circumstances for it might displease Allah in a scenario where I feel I'm not heard. This could be test or trial and I don't wish to spread my hands to anyone but Allah. Somehow I feel that my prayers aren't heard yet or maybe they don't reach Allah because of nothing but my deeds, intent and humility isn't how they should be. Allah may answer your prayers be-haqqe Mohammed (Pubh) and Aale-Mohammed (as). Iltimaas dua

    Britain are talking about doing something similar, Saudi have also recalled their youth, the end must really be nigh for the rebels, that is why all these countries are taking measures to stop these people returning to their countries of origin and causing trouble there. Most of them were trouble makers to start with, petty criminals who wanted to be gangsters their whole lives - until they thought it would be cooler to be Bin Laden, if they are allowed to return, they will be 100 times worse, which would be bad news. Nice to see all these groups and countries fighting each other and stabbing each other in the back, they deserve each other.

    [TRASH PIT]Do You Dance?

    Well said! This dude is all conjecture, no sense of rationality. Where the heck is dance in the quran in sunnah if it is that good for our nafs!? While we have tens of hadith against it. Im pretty sure this person is not a shia, and maybe not even muslim. His posts are all rubbish.

    What is going wrong… Our lives are too stressful. We are encouraged to strive for material things that really have no meaning – sometimes it seems media hype and social marketing completely program us. This puts a strain on home finances, debt is the norm, women need to work, children see less and less of their parents -which then spawns associated problems. The parents and their children lack direction and social, ethical and moral guidance. Women are more educated, more independent financially and more competent in navigating our world. They are becoming more discerning. They are willing to put off marriage if they think it will hamper their newfound freedom of life choices. They are more assertive and more confident. However, the traditional women’s role of taking care of their husband, assisting their elderly family members, and overseeing the health and the welfare of their children, etc., has increasingly less focus and priority. Husbands need more support in our modern world but are getting less, strangers care for the elderly, and more children are left to their own devices without sufficient supervision and guidance and, consequently, are at risk in many ways. Women have become less tolerant and more selfish. As mentioned above, men are under more stress to provide a higher standard of living for their family, which is sometimes unattainable; hence the debt load. They feel less confident and less successful, demoralized and resentful. They are confused as women are entering their work world and competing with them. Their traditional de facto roles and leadership are often brutally questioned. They often can’t cope and check out mentally from the family. The wife then feels less support and leadership within their family, and the women embrace, even more, the role above. All too common nowadays, the men run from the wife and children and start over – creating yet another disastrous situation. The wife and children often struggle to keep their head above poverty and have much less support in every area. Men have become increasingly weak and selfish. Our well-intentioned social nets have inadvertently formed nanny states that are willing to provide financial and various social supports to broken families – which makes it more of a viable option to break the family apart. In fact, in the West – many women are having children with men who have no intention of forming a family unit and have little to nothing to do with the raising or support of their children. The mothers know that they will be able to receive state support and sometimes too willingly enter into single motherhood. However, nothing is ever free – these financial supports often come with a high price to their family’s autonomy and privacy. These supports definitely encourage a sense of despair and personal failure. It is hard to emerge once one has entered this system. The real honest value systems that create successful adults and their children are still there but they are hard to maintain in a world where we are being pulled in a multitude of directions. Marriages fail because we are failing as humans to work as comprehensive units and make the family, the focus above all. Strong families are the building blocks of successful communities that will support family values and structure and relieve stress and despair. If we don’t have strong communities then we wont have strong families and marriages will continue to fail. It doesn’t have to be this way.

    [TRASH PIT]Do You Dance?

    So all our Imams (as) , Prophet (pbuh) and Ulama were "ultra prude and they make the worst spouses" and Michel Jackson was the nearest person to God because he did not only danced himself but also encouraged so many people to dance and get nearer to their ruh and as the result to God. He was also the best husband in some stage of his life and the best wife in the other stage of her life !! So the best way and closest way (just in one month) to approach Allah by improving your ruh is dancing. Do not hesitate and start dancing today , you will be inshallah one of the 313 companion of Imam Mahdi a.a.f.s soon, for sure. Do not miss this opportunity and do not let the other rock bands and dancer take it from you !! So sorry to say that you are wrong , obligatory precaution does't mean that you can follow EVERY OTHER MUJTAHID but just a mujtahid which is equal to your marja' in knowledge so if somebody believe that e.g. Ayatullah Khamenei is the most knowledgeable and no one is equal to him, he can not refer to another marja' when Ayatullah Khamenei has obligatory precaution in his fatwa. والسلام

    Forgive me, but are you talking about Yassir Habib from youtube? The one who openly curses and uses extremely provoking words against revered symbols of our brothers and sisters in the ahle Sunnah, while he is in his safe room in the UK protected while shia's in Iraq and pakistan are being blown up due to the hatred being spurred on by his words? Yes we do not revere Aisha, Abubakr, Umar or Uthman, but it is harram to mock them like he does or openly ask Allah swt to remove his mercy from them (lana'h). By this i mean public lana'h. Imam Ali a.s despite having a right to the caliph role after viewing the situation decided it would be best to keep the unity of the Ummah and try to be an advisor to Abubakr, Umar, and co. You have to understand, we are not even allowed to insult Gods of other religions, let a lone revered symbols of our own brothers in Islam. Sheikh Yassir Habib doesn't sound like a dumb guy. I don't like judging peoples intentions but how can he not see the damage he is doing? I love Ayatullah Khamanei. Ayatullah Khamanei has condemned yassir habib. Please forgive me if you're on about another yassir.

    [TRASH PIT]Do You Dance?

    (salam) Question: Is it permissible to learn dancing? Answer: It is not allowed at all, as a matter of obligatory precaution. Question: Is it permissible to organize dance parties where each husband dances only with his own wife to the sound of soothing musical tunes, wearing dresses that are not indecent? Answer: It is not allowed. Question: Is it permissible for women to dance in front of other women or for men to dance in front of other men in a gender-wise segregated gathering with or without music? Answer: Dancing of women in front of women or dancing of men in front of men is problematic, as a matter of obligatory precaution, one must refrain from it. The rules governing music have already been discussed earlier. - Source: Sistani.org

Abu Bakr and Umar were there. Abu Bakr inquired if he was that person and the Prophet (S) replied in the negative. Then Umar inquired if he was that person and the Prophet (S), replied "No. He is the one who is repairing my shoes (i.e., ‘Ali)." http://www.al-islam.org/shiite-encyclopedia-ahlul-bayt-dilp-team/some-traditions-virtues-imam-ali

    I see the video as a result of an inferiority complex to the West. We're legitimizing ourselves through their music, their dance (dancing hijabis? paradox), their goal of attaining "happiness" in this life. And we all know that most non-Muslims would cringe watching this video too. Imagine a video of Sikhs or Buddhist monks dancing to this song - they'd look foolish, not "happy". Be happy Muslims, happy with our Lord and His Messenger, but express your happiness differently.

    Imam al-Baqir (‘a) said: "No intercessor for a woman, on the Reckoning Day, is more effective with Allah than the consent of her husband." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 81, p. 345 Imam Abi-l-Hasan-ir-Ridha’ (‘a) narrates from Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen ‘Ali (‘a) who said: The best women among you are those who have five qualities." Amir ul Mu'mineen (‘a) was requested what those five were when he said: 1. She is easy-going, obedient, humble, and economical to her husband. 2. She is good tempered to him. 3. She is cooperative and helpful to him in difficulties. 4. Whenever her husband is angry or depressed, she does not rest until she finds him happy and pleased. 5. When her husband is absent from her, she protects his belongings in his absence. Such a woman is an agent of the agents of Allah and the agent of Allah will not be disappointed, (she gains her correct hopes)." Al-Kafi, vol. 5, p. 324 Imam as-Sadiq (‘a) said: "Any woman who spends the night while her husband is rightfully angry with her, her prayer is not accepted from her until he becomes pleased with her." Al-Kafi, vol. 5, p. 507 The Holy Prophet (S) said: "The right of a man upon (his) wife is: lighting the light, preparing food, receiving him at the threshold of the door of the house with pleasant conversation, and avoid refusing to offer herself to him except for the time there is an excuse." Makarim-ul-Akhlaq, vol. 2, p. 246 The Holy Prophet (S) said: "A woman has not performed the right of Allah, Almighty and Glorious unless she performs the right of her husband." Mustadrak-ul-Wasa'il-ush Shi'ah, vol. 14, p. 257 Imam al-Baqir (‘a) said: "Once a woman came to the Prophet (S) and said: "O' Messenger of Allah! What is the right of a husband upon his wife?" Then, he answered her: "That she obeys him and does not offend him!" Wasa'il-ush Shi'ah, vol. 10, p. 527 http://www.al-islam.org/a-bundle-of-flowers-sayyid-faqih-imani/admirable-qualities-wives ---------------------- In marital life, it is very easy to create an issue out of nothing. When there is tension in the home, spouses act in spite of each other, and are even looking to get into an argument. Sometimes, creating controversy is a spouse's way of gaining the wanted attention of his/her partner. On some days, a husband or a wife will be feeling more defensive; on some days days they'll be more needy and emotional. Allah knows that a being patient as a wife is a tough task. This is why He called it a jihad - while the jihad of men is to fight oppressors, the jihad of women is to obey their husbands. A woman who dies in childbirth is even considered [equal to] a martyr in Ja`fari fiqh. Allah did not obligate working for women, nor did He obligate fighting, nor did He obligate going to jum`a prayers, but He did obligate an undying support for their husbands. Even if he gets on her nerves sometimes, she should refrain from pushing his buttons. The Muslim man is a working man, and so home should be the "safe zone" for him - a place where he can find love, order, simplicity, support, and happiness. With regards to sexuality, yes, it is true that a wife cannot deny the conjugal rights of her husband if she does not have a legitimate excuse. There are reasons for this. The use of sex as a weapon or a tool is poisonous to a marriage. There are women who withhold sex and make unreasonable demands on their husbands for them to attain it. There are also women who try to deliberately punish their husbands by abstaining from him. Not only does this create animosity and disorder in the relationship, but it spills outside too. A man who is being deprived of sex will most likely seek it outside of the marriage. That can potentially include zina, rape, and masturbation. Sexual repression can also make men more tense, aggressive, or depressed. All of these factors can lead to the breakdown of marriages and the destruction of traditional family structures. Islam curtails this by obligating regular sex within a marriage and giving sexual recommendations to both men and women.

    I know it is quite disgusting Where? Is this actually justifiable. You're trying to justify Prophet Soloman (as) doing that? You think Rasulallah (pbuh) would do things like that? It is ironic, you bring the Prophet's (pbuh) status down to bring the status of the first three Caliphs up. It is a reality that is so true. Please do refer me to whichever person has actually had the arrogance to try and justify this. And answer my question, you think the Prophet (pbuh) , the best of Allah's creation did those things? The Prophet committed sexual atrocities? The Prophet sells slaves? He, with the greatest akhlaq, tells his wife he wants her head to burst?Even when that woman told him his breath stinks he showed his morals. Giving Imam Ali (as) a disgusting disease which he never, ever, showed any signs of and he apparently had it 24/7. You believe that? Anyone from the school of the Sahaba answer those questions. The flags of Bani Umayyah should be on the front cover of this book. Their hate of Ahlul Bayt is so clear. This book was published in the time when the Khalifah tried to destroy the grave of Imam Hussain (as) over 50 times and got actors to play Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) as a female. Thats the hate they had for the Prophet (pbuh) and his family and it has clearly rubbed off on this book and by trying to bring their levels down it brings the level of the first 3 up. Have respect for the Prophet (pbuh)

I agree with him on the way he is strong and firm against the the opposition, I agree with him on his views regarding irfan, I enjoy much of his polemical work. I disagree with him on using swords to cut yourself I think these acts are foolish and have nothing to do with the sharia, I disagree with him on the way he attack some scholars.

    Salamun alaykum O my goodness! So as you claim it is nafs who inhibits the body from dancing and we should release our soul by dancing. Then surely the first edict of Quran should be about obligation of dancing… Or the main ahādith shall be regarding dancing… Or prophet, Imams and marāje should order to dance and perform it… And even those Indian ascetics must practice dancing instead of living without and physical pleasures and comforts…

    In this case the Shari' talaq has not happened. Ask your Marja or his representative to declare talaq on ex-husband's behalf, this can be Shari' enforced even if husband doesn't agree. This ruling is unique to Islam and it's logic is taken from the Quran and Hadith that Prophet and Prophet's representative hold more sway over Muslims than their own selves. Other religions such as Sunnism, Wahabism do not have such ruling because for them a Prophet can make mistakes and can judge wrongfully (astaghfirullah), and it's ok if Prophet's so called representative drink, watch dances, wear silk, or change the Islamic sharia because he feels so.

    So Pakistan is the least sexually immoral place? Fascinating. No wonder the world is in the dumps. I have another theory. The Christians and Muslims are lying. Why? Pakistan tops the pornography searching country and I know just what kind of people are here around me. They are highly immoral in practice and when they are committing all sorts of sins, from corruption to killing babies to supporting terrorism, how come they are moral when it comes to sex? Makes no sense. India is not that sexually immoral either according to the graph, which is another mistake because even the bus seat will rape you in there just for fun. The statistics are confusing and unbelievable. Its kind of hard to accept that other countries have more immorality. It could be that the atheists have no reason to hide anything and lie about their opinions.

    Can My Wife Have Breast Implants

    (bismillah) (salam) This post is not directed at you, but at a very important point you inadvertently brought up. Insha'Allah it is of benefit. So many things are 'halal' that are implicitly actually haraam, in a way... "Say to them, "Are the blind and the seeing equal?" Why then do you not think?" (6:50). The Quran commands us to use our intellect. In the same way tattoos, male ear piercings, dying your hair pink as a male, doing base-jumping off buildings with a high likelihood of dying is halal, breast implants are too. But do you think a person in Imam Mehdi (as)'s army will have any of these? End of the day, Allah constantly tells us to use our brains. He has made things Haraam for us that may not have easily been recognized by our intellects to be detrimental, such as pork, and has therefore guided us at a basic level. Other things he has left to our intellect to decide. The power of the intellect is very strong and it is the best creation given to mankind. The fact that we don't use it shows our lack of thankfulness to Allah. We are not 2 year olds that need a fatwa in every single situation to distinguish between right and wrong. The Quran metaphorically 'facepalms' at the stupidity of mankind in that verse. Why do we not think indeed... Bottom line: It may be halal and mubah, but that doesn't mean it is the right choice. Again, this all goes back to the Sharia diagram here: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235021806-marital-rape-a-husbands-right/page-5#entry2693215 “The beginning of all things, their origin, their force, their prosperity, is that ‘aql [Reason/Intellect] without which one can profit from nothing. God created it to adorn His creation, and as a light for them. It is through ‘aql that the servants recognize that God is their Creator and that they themselves are created beings, that He is the Director and they are the directed, that He is the Eternal and they are the ephemeral; they are guided by their ‘aql when they observe God’s creation, His heavens, His earth, His sun, His moon, His night and His day…It is thanks to ‘aql that they can distinguish what is beautiful from what is ugly, that they realize that darkness is in ignorance and that light is in Knowledge”–Abu ‘Abd Allah Ja‘far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq (A.S.) (Al-Kafi) We have been commanded to use our intellect. If our intellect tells us this 'halal' thing is clearly detrimental, then we must stay away from it. This is part of Islam. We skip that and refer to Sharia alone and this is where we fail. As I said in the other post, we must go above and beyond Sharia. It is the two loafs of bread in a sandwich. Our 'aql fills the inside of the sandwich itself... The meat and lettuce and whatever else. We are not robots acting ok a set of instructions. Yes, those instructions are there to guide us, but we are autonomous beings and have been commanded to make our own decisions from time to time. I guess it is too hard for some people to do this... Think. Reflect. Make wise decisions. People forget this aspect of Islam and work on fatwas 24/7. That mindset is detrimental to society and personal spiritual development. (Wasalam)

I like your response and i agree with what you have to say. Mashallah, i like the information you have. one thing i noticed with MTO members and i like to clear up is that when meeting them in person, they identified themselves as muslims. At an event i was attending few years back, they were not promoting just the general and more universal aspects of Sufi doctrine they promoted Islam and their school of islamic sufism (just like you stated above). their website is fascinating www.mto.org i advise anyone with any intrest to take a look. i just want to point out that the International Association of Sufism and MTO are not affiliated. completely different groups. MTO does seem to be the more expanded organization thoughout the world.

    Marital Rape; A Husband's Right

    If your marriage is in good shape and there is mutual regard and trust and hopefully love – hesitancy for intimacy would not be an issue for either the husband or the wife. Forcing himself without both of them working on fixing what is wrong, is only going to lead to bigger problems. Yes, I am aware of Islamic guidelines to the wife not denying sex, but that is within the context of other Islamic guidelines, and treating your wife with compassion and esteem is one of them and the husband’s duty to fulfill her sexual needs is another. Women are not machines – vending or any other type. When you find a woman you respect and care for and who respects and cares for you – and inshallah you do, perhaps your perspective will change. _____________ Also, most women earn money (or have family money) nowadays in someway so that should not be such a big issue in marriages - or perhaps more in the future this will take off some of the pressure off men trying to financially provide for their families. This seems to cause a lot of stress. ­­­­_____________ The idea of rape has been minimized throughout some of these posts. Rape is a violent act born of blind anger and aggression, not because someone wants sexual intimacy – the two acts are polar opposites. It is because someone wants power over another. Marital rape is usually part of a domestic assault – an ugly part.

    It will never be halal. No where in the quran al kareem does it say you can force your wife. Anything that's forced upon a person will damage that person... Some men need to be gentle with their woman and not act like animals. And if your wife treats it as a tool then go question yourself why. Maybe you need to act more like a human and do all your islamic chores before you demand for your rights.... It's pathitic that some people need to be told whats allowed and not allowed. You dont need a fatwa to know it's wrong.

    Marital Rape; A Husband's Right

    Physical force is wrong. Threatening and coercing are also wrong. If a man does any of these to his wife, he will ruin his family. Even if it is "halal" it is stupid.

    It's sad that as soon as you say that you are against this video you get called 'haram police', when did that become mainstream?

    Marital Rape; A Husband's Right

    ^ That presupposes that the sense that is common is the good sense. If common sense says a man should force his wife to have sex with him, regardless of how she feels about it, then im not so sure it is good sense. This has nothing to do with 'feminism', its to do with having a sense for whats good. I rather incline towards the view that when ever either partner demands more from their partner than they know is healthy for them to give (either for their own well being or the well being of the relationship) then they are sacrificing their better selves and the security of the relationship for desires of a lower order. The Quran tells us marriages are meant to be loving/supportive unions; so you work on your issues and differences with this in mind. If your relationship has become so abusive that you demand to the point of damaging the other person, the kindest thing might be to leave their life to minimise the suffering youre causing. This of course goes both ways - whether youre a person who recognises that they desire things beyond whats healthy for the other person to provide, or if youre a person who recognises you cant provide whats reasonable and health for the other person to ask for. The mature thing to do would be to recognise these realties and either work lovingly to change them or part. To propagate this notion that wives should submit to their husbands advances, as if a slave, is ugly and on very shaky ground, as it is a notion completely ignorant of the every day realities of peoples relationships and so utterly absurd in practical terms. If women went around submitting to sex literally whenever their husbands wanted, irrespective of what was happening in their relationship, it would only serve to cause resentment and disgust, damage the relationship and reduce the act itself to that of an animal. Show me where the Quran teaches us to act like impulsive animals. Ive noticed people throwing around ahadith about the necessity for foreplay - whats the point in foreplay if your wife is upset because her husband is attempting to force himself on her knowing its the last thing she wants or needs at that moment. The whole thing is oddly incongruous to say the least.

    Marital Rape; A Husband's Right

    That would be the same for any false claim of criminal behaviour - she could have accused him of stealing from her or holding her hostage or abusing their children. No false claim is funny. The wife should never be in fear of her husband - so much so - that she has to guard herself against him and not feel safe and secure. In a marriage, trust is imperative. Rape is not an act of marital intimacy born of sexual need, but one born of violence and anger. It is akin to beating her up - but worse.

    It is one of the amaals of the wedding night. The groom should wash the bride’s feet and sprinkle that water in all the four corners of the room and house. Allah(swt) will remove 70,000 types of poverty, 70,000 types of blessings will enter the house and 70,000 blessings will come upon the bride and groom. The bride will be safe from insanity, ulcers and leprosy.

    Salah While Having Doubts.

    the only reasons we have doubts and disbelief is due to sin God doesn't make us doubtful,. we throw the veils over our hearts with sin and hence we cannot see what is right on front of our eyes i.e God "it is not the eyes that go blind but it is the hearts that go blind" also even when yous top sinning, you need to go through purification in order to achieve and reach faith , and the worst part is that afterwards if you make a mistake again , you are thrown back into that previous state of disbelief the most important thing is not to sin, and you will need to pay for your sins in this life, or the next, this is a fact , once you did something sinful consciously, you will need to suffer consciously even Prophet Yunus(a.s) was punished for what couldnt even be compared to a sin, when we compare the sins that general people do i.e adultery/gambling/alcohol so if he had to go through such a "recovery" then you can be certain that the same will happen to you you sin, you must suffer, and it is MUCH better to suffer here then to suffer in the hereafter and the doubts you have inside that tear you apart and interrupt you from praying is actually part of that suffering there is a verse of the Quran where God says that if a person "goes back to sinning, after he had been guided" that God appoints a shaytaan which misguides the person and even torments the person so you must be patient, dont go back to your sins, and just put your trust in God, dont listen to the "waswasa" of shyataan while your faith si weak, because this is his most powerful position just be patient if you be patient and dont give in, i promise you that you will find peace and tranquility and full faith which will never leave you unless you leave it(by sinning) actually you will be quiet surprised but as a person goes through the unveiling of the self, he must face such doubts in his heart which are even GREATER then the ones you face now, until he is FULLY purified so that NOTHING evil remains in him and this pain and torment and suffering is GREATER then anything you have ever known, and take my word on it because i have tasted it, and i would equate it to actual burning of hel fire , because it HELLA burns to remove and RUmi has written a poem about it , a couple actually "each moment the fire rages, it burns a 100 veils" and also "the wound is where the light enters you" and also "how do you expect your mirror(heart) to be polished if youa re irritated by ever rub?" and finally “When someone beats a rug, the blows are not against the rug, but against the dust in it.” if you are patient at this stage and bear all the torment and doubts and sufferings, you wil find that God will unveil a light in your heart which will illiminate all the sky and outside yourself that it will feel and look like somebody turned on a powerful light inside you which illuminates everything outside

    You seem not to have the aklaq' of Ahlulbayt, anyhow, that's not my main area. If you see this as bad attitude, then fine, you can say that - but what I pointed out was that you did not see Imam al-Mahdi. I am backed up by Ayatollah al-Sayed Kamal al-Haydari. Peace to you, and remember me in your duas.

    "Engineering students at Karachi's Iqra University have manufactured the first ever solar powered rickshaw. A rickshaw which only runs on Solar and Electrical charging at the maximum speed of 60 Km/h. The new rickshaw is cost effective and do not pollute the environment as well. The running cost of CNG rickshaw is 3 Rs/km but the cost of SOLECT Hybrid is only 1 Rs/km." aw snap. geo karachi :wub:

    Yes she has the right to ask for so, whilst obeying him. This goes back to the understanding and respect that exists between the two.
