  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

  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.

Assuming this narration is true, it informs us that in Sham, a certain individual never heard the name Ali or Hassan. But how much of Sham, or any place, must one experience before his or her words can speak for an entire region? Also, the narration says nothing about names such as Hussain or Jafar, et cetera. Were there children named Hussain, Jafar, et cetera? Let us assume that there were no one na

  31. Sitting in one of the corner whispering some words he was looking at the holy shrine. This was the first time he had come to Mashhad in his life. Having short knowledge made him participate in sessions held by the tour guide in order to raise their information about the pilgrimage. "The great amount of cognition is needed to perform the true pilgrimage," he was told in that session. He wanted to do a completed pilgrimage but how could he assure himself of it? Suddenly, he remembered," to understand that Imam A.S has permitted us to enter the holy shrine rely on your eyes. Having tears run dow

  34. Salam, The only way is to be extremely harsh with your nafs and punish yourself if you make a mistake. For example, tell yourself that if you look at a women with lust, then you will fast for three days consecutively in order to punish your nafs.Threaten yourself and be harsh with yourself so that you will be kind to other people. Those who are easy with their own nafs are usually too critical and mean with others, while those who are worried about their own nafs are too busy thinking about that to notice too much what others are doing. I agree that it is getting more difficult now,

  35. What hes trying to say is, in our opinion after Prophet Muhammed (as) it is Imam Ali (as) sunnis Technically deny Imam Ali (as) as First Khalifah and Imam. They deny the authorities of All 12 Imams (as). that in itself is a Sin. In my opinion meaning it has no value because i'm just a ordinary person if one man Knowingly knows the right of imam Ali(as) and on purpose denys then yes he is a sinner, however if he doesn't know or believes Imam Ali (as) not to be the 1st khalifah and he may not be a sinner due to ignorance however still accountable because everyone needs to search for the

  38. The age of 9 is so young and it is kind of jolting that that age keeps getting mentioned for girls maturation. Currently, girls get their period on average about 12 - 13 years; however, the "average" range is stated as between 10 - 15 (I just looked it up). I knew one girl who started at 10 (who told me she was terrified and thought she was dying) and one who started at 15 (who was starting to worry that there was something wrong with her) and lots who started 12 - 13 - so guess it is on a bell curve! Even though it is possible, I have never met anyone who started at 9. Historically, girls we

  40. The problem is not that blasphemy has been committed, and it's not that Hub-e-Ali(A.S) has suddenly awakened in SSP/ASWJ, MWM and the scholar-kind. It is that Geo has done it. With a nudge from the Establishment, all religious parties from Karachi to Peshawar through Jhang took up the cause. Had Mubasher Lucman not picked up the issue, nobody would've even noticed. But the Khakis were waiting for a slip just like this, and now they are going to exploit it to the max. It definitely is a set up. And one which Geo helped create. Also, Marbles bhai, the civil society (rather ironically)

(Although we believe Imams are the same nour and traits are equal for all of them . it's just the era and area that make their traits visible to us) Imam Hadi a.s. was not only oppressed in his time but he is oppressed in our time , even by bombing his shrine (by takferies ) or by ignorance toward him (by shias) اللهم صل علی محمد و آل محمد و عجل فرجهم
