  1. A prominent Iranian cleric has censured Boko Haram over its kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria, stating that the militant Takfiri group has nothing to do with Islam. Speaking in the holy city of Qom on Sunday, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi called Boko Haram militants a group of savage people who have nothing to do with Islam. The Ayatolalh warned that Boko Haram is helping Islam’s enemies with their anti-religion propaganda. The senior Iranian cleric also hailed Sunni scholars of the Muslim world for denouncing the terrorist actions of the Takfiri group. Nigeria and its

SHAYKH IBN TAYMIYYAH VS THE SAHAABAH AND TABI'IN: ------------------------------------------------- In the Name of Allah (s.w.t), The Benificient, Ever-Merciful, and May the Best Blessings be upon Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w) and Pure Family - Assalamoo 'Alaykoom wa Rahmatu Allahee (s.w.t), wa Barakatuhu - ** al-Shaykh ibn Taymiyyaah stated that a lot of the Sahabaah were in fact Nasibees', and that Imam Alee (a.s) was very much hated among the Sahaabah'.

  12. Just imagine African leaders gathering in Tehran or Ankara or Cairo or Riyadh for the meeting and there Muslim countries offering to send in their troops to help the government of Nigeria. Wouldn't that be a proactive approach for the otherwise slumbering Ummah? But this is something that never happens. When Malala Yousafzai was hit by Taliban bullets and luckily survived she was flown to the UK for security reasons. Canada and France also offered to host her and some other Western countries which I don't remember the names of. But what I absolutely remember that not a single Muslim country of

  16. @Marbles: For the most part I agree, but I also think you are being a tad harsh. For starters, even in Nigeria, vigilante organizations have formed to combat extremists like Boko Haram, but it's very scary when you are dealing with monsters like this who have almost no conscience. If you have scars from surviving one of their attacks, it's just a signal to them that they didn't finish you off well enough the first time. When someone insults the Prophet (pbuh), this is usually something that can unite both moderates and extremists (and even then most of the people you see in the streets probabl

  20. Colonialists had colonized the whole world- every nation, people, and religion. It was not only a dark era for Muslims but for all. So using colonialism as an excuse or an explanation does no one no good... specially the Muslims. Take a look at India and Pakistan- same people and same language and same circumstances but yet two completely different reactions to colonialsm. One is on its way to become fully independent and living, almost, upto its ideals, while the other one is regressing back to stone ages. Take a look at Ukraine and Syria- both countries in somewhat state of anarchy. We see

  21. Looks like the problem lies in your understanding. I in no way berated the cleric but merely acknowledged the existence of dark forces within the Islamic community. Believe me denying or blaming the US or Israel will get us no where. Remember the meeting in France few days ago hosting African leaders on the issue? That was smart and beneficial, not for Nigerian girls, but for France's PR campaign. A smart move in the Islamic world would have been for many organizations getting together and denouncing such acts. It would not have only helped the image of Islam but also would have reduced imme

  23. No the real problem in the Muslim world is stupidity & denial. Now without acting like a freak- arent those groups all Muslims? Denial never solves anything if you are after solution. Acknowledging a problem is the first step towards solving that problem. Denying a problem is the first step towards prolonging that problem. Write ^ that down.

  27. Wisdom Lion, brother, I don't mean to be offensive but you really are being a fanatic. You are the one who deserves to be banned, for all your name-calling. The ultimate purpose of Islam as the Prophet's words indicate is to perfect our etiquette and morals, not being obsessed with bashing anyone and everyone who doesn't agree. Please try to be more open-minded and accept that others may have different opinions after actual thought and analysis. There is not always a hidden agenda. Even if others reach the wrong conclusions, they don't deserve ridicule. You have not shown the construct

  29. The article is not bad. It comes to what you want to use as a definition of a marja. If you want to use this as a term for a mujtahid whose level of scholarship has passed peer review and achieved a certain status, and who others can turn to for advice, there's nothing really to object to. If you're including other roles such as being an administrator of the affairs of certain dependent people and of financial trusts and being a judge in court, then there are some textual evidences that might be brought to argue against it.

  30. (bismillah) (salam) Question: Banks in the West give loans —known as mortgage— to those who do not have enough money to buy houses; this is to be paid back in [weekly or monthly] installments with a high rate of interest. Is a Muslim allowed to use this facility? If it is not permissible, is there a solution in your view for someone who claims that he needs the mortgage to buy his own residential house and does not possess enough money to pay for it? Answer: It is permissible to take the money from the bank that is financed by non-Muslim government or private funds but not with the in

  33. ^^ Lol. For your last paragraph, are you saying that the West were more modern than the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)? Because Islam is modern, because Islam is until the Day of Judgement, and it doesn't change. You are one of those who are inclined towards what the West believes as "modern".

  34. Stupidity and reactionary politics are synonymous. Merely acknowledging the mercenaries and tribalists (Pashtuns etc) amongst our ranks isn't going to solve the problem either. And don't be cocky, u know what I meant about never being positive. This cleric clearly acknowledges these freak shows exists and is speaking against them, yet you berate.

    Salam Ruffles and thanks. Yes, indeed, green tea and those others have negligible amounts of caffeine if any. I feel sorry for spoiling Ruq's thread (I hope its not one of those feel good ones, good sister) and I also love tea myself but the prime reason for my last post was that checking my caffeine intake has seemingly cured my anxiety disorder. I still drink a cup of black tea once every other day or so but having the awareness of its hazard when taken in excess and cutting back sternly (tea and fizzy drinks) has apparently solved my huge, afore mentioned health problem. That said, I stil

    Are Sunnis Sinners?

    Yes. That's what I read. ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): إنَّ لِلجَنّةِ ثَمانِيَةَ أبوابٍ: بابٌ يَدخُلُ مِنهُ النَّبِيّونَ والصِّدِّيقونَ ، وبابٌ يَدخُلُ مِنهُ الشُّهَداءُ والصّالِحونَ ، وخَمسَةُ أبْوابٍ يَدخُلُ مِنها شِيعَتُنا ومُحِبّونا ...، وبابٌ يَدخُلُ مِنهُ سائـرُ المُسلِمينَ مِمَّنْ شَهِدَ أنْ لا إلهَ إلّا اللّه‏ُ ، ولَم يَكُنْ في قَلبِهِ مِقْدارُ ذَرَّةٍ مِن بُغْضِنا أهلَ البَيتِ.

I found in the handwriting of Jibril b. Ahmad - narrated to me Muhammad b. `Abdallah b. Mihran who said: narrated to me one of our companions from Muhammad b. Furat – he (i.e. the unnamed companion) said: he (Muhammad b. Furat) used to exaggerate in belief (i.e. was a Ghali) and drink wine, so al-Ridha عليه السلام sent him a Khum
