    Rijal Al-Kashi

    حدثني محمدبن مسعود، قال: حدثني أبوعبدالله الحسين بن أشكيب قال: حدثني محمدبن أورمه، عن الحسين بن سعيد، قال: حدثني علي بن النعمان، عن ابن مسكان، عن ضريس، قال قال لي أبوخالد الكابلي: أما أني سأحدثك بحديث ان رأيتموه وأنا حي فقلت صدقني، وان مت قبل أن تراه ترحمت علي ودعوت لي سمعت علي بن الحسين عليه السلام يقول: ان اليهود أحبوا عزيزا حتى قالوا فيه ماقالوا فلا عزيز منهم ولاهم من عزيز، وأن النصارى أحبوا عيسى حتى قالوا فيه ماقالوا، فلا عيسى منهم ولاهم من عيسى وانا على سنة من ذلك ان قوما من شيعتنا سيحبونا حتى يقولوا فينا ماقالت اليهود في عزيز، وماقالت النصارى في عيسى بن مريم، فلاهم منا ولا نحن منهم 191. Narrated to me Muhammad b. Masud who said: narrated to me Abu Abdallah al-Husayn b. Ushkayb who said: narrated to me Muhammad b. Awrama from al-Husayn b. Said who said: narrated to me Ali b. al-Numan from Ibn Muskan from Dhurays who said: Abu Khalid al-Kabali said to me: as for me - I am going to narrate to you a narration - if you see it (i.e. materializing) while I am still alive - you will say: he was (has been) truthful to (with) me, and if I were to die before you see it - you will pray for mercy on me and supplicate for me, I heard Ali b. al-Husayn عليهما السلام say: the Jews loved Uzayr until they said about him what they said, so Uzayr is not from them, nor are they from Uzayr (i.e. he has nothing to do with them - and likewise they with him), and the Christians loved Isa until they said about him what they said, so Isa is not from them, nor are they from him, and we are upon a similar course (path) like (of) that, a group from our Shia will love us until they will say about us that which the Jews said about Uzayr and that which the Christians said about Isa b. Maryam, so they are not from us, nor are we from them.

    (Salam) (Bismillah) First, I want to clarify the quote that Muhib-e-Ali did was not Imam al-Husayn (AS), instead it was Abū al-Fadl al-`Abbās, when he was near the river and he was talking with the enemy. These lines are famous in Arab countries when discussing the maqtal of Abū al-Fadl al-`Abbās. If you say it was India because of it was a place of knowledge and mystics, then what about Rome? Obviously this is not to be taken literal. I swear, we get mad at the Salafis and call them literalists, but when it suits us we become the biggest literalists (I.e. Abū al-Fadl al-`Abbas feet touching the floor when he was mounted on a horse, etc. ) (Salam)

    I give up, you win. I am turning Hindu as well, it is much easier than being a Muslim. Also i am going to change my name to Christina La Garcia to avoid being associated with bloody cursed Arbs predecessors. I may as well go though a number of surgical operations to look like a Korean. And I a going to support LGBT rights And I am going to let the blood from my body on every Ashura and follow horoscopes for luck tips and I am going to zeyara of Imam Husain every year, bare feet, walking on fire Love of AHlulbayt is my religion but religion of Ahlulbayt is not my cup of tea.

    A land full of mushriks was a sacred land? So was it a bad thing when Islam came to them? Having love for Imam Husayn (as) won't save anybody on Judgement Day it they have no love for Allah, and associate others with Him.

    Ali Hadi.

    Ten Promised Paradise

    This is one of the most insulting narrations of Bani Umayyah عليهم لعنة الله to cover up those who truly angered al-Zahra عليها السلام. You believe that Ali عليه السلام wanted to propose for Abu Jahal's daughter? Abu Jahal? One of the worst enemies of the Prophet صل الله عليه وآله ? Does that make sense to you? You claim to love Ali ibn Abi Talib عليه السلام? Anyone who acknowledges the status of Ali عليه السلام will reject the hadeeth at that point, and it isn't surprising when you look at the chain of narrators. Do you know who narrated this hadeeth? Al-Miswar ibn Makhramah: The guy was born in the 2nd year after hijrah, and this fabricated proposal supposedly happened in the 8th year after hijrah, so how could a 6 year old possibly be a witness to this event. Whoever fabricated this, clearly didn't think through how he was going to make the chain look believable. He is the only one who reports this event taking place, so at this point anyone with sense will reject the narration. Abu Bakr forgot to read the Qur'an when he made up that hadeeth: يرثني ويرث من آل يعقوب واجعله رب رضيا Who should inherit me and inherit from the children of Yaqoub, and make him, my Lord, one in whom Thou art well pleased. [19:6] Can I ask you a question - do you not find it suspicious that Abu Bakr and his daughter are the only ones to narrate this hadeeth which clearly goes agains the words of Allah? Nope, he said they were cursed as Sheikh al-Mufeed عليه رحمة الله mentions in his book on Jamal: قال له طلحة : سبحان الله ! تزعم أنا ملعونون وقد قال رسول الله : عشرة من أصحابي في الجنة. فقال أمير المؤمنين - عليه السلام - : هذا حديث سعيد بن زيد Talha said to him: SubhanAllah! You claim that we are cursed and the Messenger of Allah said "Ten of my companions are in paradise". So Imam Ali [as] said: This is the hadeeth of Sa'id ibn Zaid. Where does Abu Dharr رضوان الله عليه narrate this hadeeth?

    Good News From Syria

    I think recently Mleiha was the turning point for other small towns occupied by terrorist groups in and around Damascus. The Takfiris got the message that there is no way out of this. They better give up everywhere and they know it that they cannot live with or under ISIS. It is either ISIS or the Syrian government, and the current events in Syria/Iraq suggest that the ultimate survivor in Syria is only and only the government forces and its allies.

    Ate/Eating/Will Eat?

    The more the choco chips, the better! The one is the middle was made in a different mould. My mom purchased a small oven, it is only 28 litres in capacity so I can only fit in one tray meant for 6 cupcakes (the little ones you see in the pic above). The rest of the space in the oven was getting wasted so I had to go and buy individual moulds as the one in the centre above. They are a bit larger. There are 2 small ones left...which my sister is keeping her eyes on :D :D Next time, I'll make a full batch just for you. P.S.: My mum is getting increasingly annoyed by my baking spree... -_-

    The difference between Islam and atheism is just a few words 'La Ilaha' is atheism, then add 'illahLah'. Like I said previously, one is obedience to Allah(s.w.a) and the other isn't. The difference between and mumin and a fasiq is only that one obeys Allah(s.w.a) and the other doesn't, but this will determine their eternal fate, so it is extremely important. I have shared this before here is a 'roundabout' way, but I will say it directly now. I did mutah before I married permenantly. Now I have been married for more than 10 years and haven't done it. I am not that great of a person, there are many brothers like me.

    Importance Of Rijal

    (salam) This thread has a good summary of what you might be looking for (see post #12 & 13): http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235007317-discussions-on-ilm-ar-rijal/ Wassalam

    Bismillah Perhaps the best way to address this topic is to address the "controversial" verses head on. Unfortunately in our very non-academic, instant gratification obsessed modern world people tend to just want quick, easy answers without really properly looking into things. In the case of the controversial "kill them wherever you find them" (9:5) verse, this is exactly what has happened, but fortunately the solution is very, very simple: read the verses before and after it. So, let's have a look. 9:1 [This is] a [declaration of] repudiation by Allah and His Apostle [addressed] to the polytheists with whom you had made a treaty: Right away, we realize there is a context to the verse in question (9:5). We realize that these verses are not dealing with all polytheists, but rather those who have a treaty with the Prophet (s), let alone all non-Muslims, infidels, or whatever Fox News would like you to believe. 9:2 Travel [unmolested] in the land for four months, but know that you cannot thwart Allah, and that Allah shall disgrace the faithless. 9:3 [This is] an announcement from Allah and His Apostle to all the people on the day of the greater Hajj: that Allah and His Apostle repudiate the polytheists: If you repent that is better for you; but if you turn your backs [on Allah], know that you cannot thwart Allah, and inform the faithless of a painful punishment 9:4 (barring the polytheists with whom you have made a treaty, and who did not violate any [of its terms] with you, nor backed anyone against you. So fulfill the treaty with them until [the end of] its term. Indeed Allah loves the Godwary) 9:3 [This is] an announcement from Allah and His Apostle to all the people on the day of the greater Hajj: that Allah and His Apostle repudiate the polytheists: If you repent that is better for you; but if you turn your backs [on Allah], know that you cannot thwart Allah, and inform the faithless of a painful punishment Therefore, when we read the "kill them whoever you find them" verse, we realize it is only talking about a specific group: people who had rejected or violated peace treaties with the Muslims, and were therefore at war with them. Those who hate and actively preach against Islam make this verse appear to be a universal declaration of death to all non-Muslims, but just reading the preceding verses makes it very, very clear that they were limited to the time of the Prophet (s), and even then only applied to a specific group within a group, i.e. those who were working against the establishment of peace between the Muslims and others. So, 9:5 Then, when the sacred months have passed, kill the polytheists wherever you find them, capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them at every ambush. But if they repent, and maintain the prayer and give the zakat, then let them alone. Indeed Allah is all-forgiving, all-merciful. The verse alone appears frightening, yes, and it is a perfect tool of propaganda. But the previous verses make clear who "the polytheists" are in verse 5. We can even go onward to verse 6, which makes it even more clear: 9:6 If any of the polytheists seeks asylum from you, grant him asylum until he hears the Word of Allah. Then convey him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know. So much for killing all the polytheists! Had that been the case, the polytheist in question would either have to convert or be killed, since not converting would mean he has remained in his polytheism. Further, if Muslims were indeed supposed to kill all polytheists, how could they have a "place of safety" to return to? The Muslims would be obliged by these very verses to attack it, not return someone safely to it! I hope this helps to clarify things. There are other points that can be mentioned, but I think this is hopefully a good start...

    I Need Sister's Advice

    Did she outright lie, or just not tell everything? There is a world of difference. If she outright lied, did she do so because she thought you would leave her if you found out? Did she fear being humiliated in her community or beaten by her family? That also makes a difference. Finally, has your trust in her been utterly ruined, or just your pride damaged? And were you perfectly forthright about your past?

    Ten Promised Paradise

    This has not yet been responded in the light of Quran and Sunnah which is a discredit for Sunnis. Prior to the demise of the prophet saww during his illness days, Abu bakr, Umar and others were ordered by the prophet to join the Army under the command of young Usama. But they disobeyed the prophet orders by not joining it and keeping them self out as per own motives. The details can be found at the given link http://www.al-hadi.u...lamity/2.html#1 Quran 33:36It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path. وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْرًا أَن يَكُونَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَن يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا مُّبِينًا This confirms that they were fond of disobeying the prophet saww. Such disobedience of the prophet saww orders from a group of companions ( 1, 2 ) is quite shameful and disgusting. Also, In the light of quoted verse above they cannot be considered as qualified for paradise. Regards.

    Ten Promised Paradise

    You mean how THEIR OWN books, their SAHIH books, Allah has CURSED them on one of the top 10 ? In SAHIH Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 53, Number 325: Narrated 'Aisha: (mother of the believers) After the death of Allah 's Apostle Fatima the daughter of Allah's Apostle asked Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to give her, her share of inheritance from what Allah's Apostle had left of the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) which Allah had given him. Abu Bakr said to her, "Allah's Apostle said, 'Our property will not be inherited, whatever we (i.e. prophets) leave is Sadaqa (to be used for charity)." Fatima, the daughter of Allah's Apostle got angry and stopped speaking to Abu Bakr, and continued assuming that attitude till she died. Fatima remained alive for six months after the death of Allah's Apostle. In SAHIH BUKHARI ( Bukhari Volume 5, Book 57, Number 61) and SAHIH MUSLIM: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) had frequently said: "Fatimah is a part of me. Whoever makes her angry, makes me angry." [33:57] Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment.

    Ibn-Ahmed Aliyy Herz

    Shia Adhan Proven

    I came across two authentic Hadith from the books of ahlus sunnah that show that the phrase "haya 'ala khayr l 'amol", was actually the original and proper adhan. When looking at the sunni replies from both the English and Arabic forums I saw that they said two things... 1- Ibn umar was reviving a sunnah or he was doing it optionally, and it is not a bidah and the shia are not blamed in this and are actually correct. (For example Imam shafii agreed with the shia on wearing aqeeq and raising the hands in qunut, and as An-nawawi mentions the shia did not innovate in this particular area). 2- Ibn umar and zayn Al abideen (as) both were wrong and made a mistake (give me a break...). 1-Let's look at the hadith and their authenticity. 2- Let's look at their replies from both the Arabic forums and the English section. 3- Let us then comment. So the first hadith is from Malik's al-muwata. حدثنا أبو أسامة قال أنا عبيد الله عن نافع قال كان ابن عمر زاد في أذانه حي على خير العمل Abu Usama said Ubaidallah reported to him from Naafi' that Ibn Umar would add in his Adhan hayya 'ala khayr l 'amol (come to the best work). End of hadith. As we can see the chain is very high (it has few intermediaries) and the men in it are of high status, ahlus sunnah are grade it sahih without question. The second hadith is found in the famous Musannaf of Ibn Abi shayba. حدثنا أبو بكر قال أنا حاتم بن إسماعيل عن جعفر عن أبيه ومسلم بن أبي مريم أن علي بن حسين كان يؤذن فإذا بلغ حي على الفلاح قال حي على خير العمل ويقول هو الأذان الأول . Abu bakr reported to us that haatim ibn ismael reported to him from Imam Jafar as saadiq (as) from his father (as) and muslim ibn abi maryam that Ali Ibn hussayin (Imam zayn al abideen) would say the adhan and if he came to the part of haya 'ala falaah he would say haya 'ala khayar l 'amol and he (Imam Ali ibn hussin) ع would say "this was the original adhan". The chain is authentic according to ahlus sunnah, none of them deny it's authenticity, also if you noticed they reported from our Imams as-saadiqayn ع. Now let us look at some of the replies from the English section from "[Edited Out]" may Allah make their children rafidhis.. Mashallah, what would we do without Abdullah Bin Zayd al Ansari? Astaghfurallah how misguided these people are, we pose a question to our Sunni brethren why did Allah send the one of the largest aspects of the religion to a sahabi in a dream and not to the Prophet himself (ع)? Such a hadith is an obvious fraud and hoax, let us laugh some more and look at the same hadith. So the prophet (ع) was so clueless and to the point where he ordered that a bell should be used like Christians, but then, alhamdulilah, Abdullah ibn zayd had a dream by Allah to correct the prophet's method. My dear rafidhi bretheren and sisters, I regress, let us go to their comments regarding these two authentic hadith, the nasaibi then says the following... In fact, he is the liar, he has no room to reject them as unauthentic, and I challenge them to do so, many of their scholars have even confirmed this hadith including shaykh al islam ibn taymiyya, trust me...he is shaykh al islam he is never wrong...never. (except when they feel like it), moving on... Subhanallah,we hear day and night from these people "we follow the companions we follow the companions, we follow ahlul bayt", and when two authentic hadith are presented to them showing how a companion the son of their 2nd caliph did the adhan and how a Mujtahid mutlaq from Ahlul bayt Imam zayn Al abideen did the adhan their proofs become void evidence. I applaud your intellects, not only did you just affirm that Ibn Umar would recite the adhan this way, you affirmed it, and then denied it as evidence. Regarding zayn al abideen let us see what he says. His argument amounts to the following, Imam Zayn al abideen was wrong and believed in fake hadith, and that he didn't see the way his father and brothers recited the adhan and assumed and made a mistake in believing false hadith and also misunderstanding hadith that were attributed to bilal, and Ibn umar was also mistaken.... la ilaha illa Allah.... Thank you Sunnis of the English section, we benefited greatly from you, let us turn to the arabic forums. This is from an arabic forum, where a sunni is asking for an explanation --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- POST 1 سؤالي لكل الشيعه انا احترت اريد جواب : 1-هل هذا هو الاذان الذي كان ينادى به في عهد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم I have a question for all the shia, I would very much like the answer. 1- Is this adhan the adhan that the Prophet (3) would call with in his time? POST 2 كل شي عند الشيعة مبتدع ولم يثبت عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ولا عن ال بيته الطيبين الطاهرين رضوان الله عليهم بل هو من تأليف المجوس تجدهم يتشابهون مع اليهود والنصارى في مسائل من كل دين يأخذون شيئا Everything that is with the shia is made up and there isn't anything from them that is proven from the prophet nor from the ahlul bayt at tayyiben at tahireen radi Allah anhum. However this is from writers of the majus, you find them(shia) similar to the Jews and the Christians in their issues, they took from every religion.... POST 3 قال ابن عربي في الفتوحات المكية:... وأمّا من زاد في الأذان حيَّ على خير العمل فإن كان فُعل في زمان رسول الله ـ كما روي أنّ ذلك دعا به في غزوة الخندق ; إذ كان الناس يحفرون، فجاء وقت الصلاة وهي خير موضوع كما ورد في الحديث، فنادى المنادي أهل الخندق "حيَّ على خير العمل" ـ فما أخطأ مَن جعلها في الأذان، بل اقتدى إن صحّ الخبر، أو سنّ سنّة حسنة.الفتوحات المكية (1: 400) Ibn Arabi said in his futuhat al makiyya " As for who adds in his Adhan haya ala khayr l amol then this was actually done at the time of rasulallah (saw), this was also called with in the battle of khandaq, when the people were entrenched and the time for salah came, and this is the best of actions as the hadith narrates, so the caller would call to ahlul khandaq "haya ala khayr l amol", so it isn't a mistake whoever places this in the adhan but instead it is authentic information, and a practice that is sunnah hasana". POST 4 We don't accept sufis as a proof upon us. POST 5 My friend you feel embarrased for yourself to take the words of a sufi and you left the words of ibn umar, is ibn umar a sufi too?! POST 6 مجموع فتاوى ابن تيمية - (ج 5 / ص 279) كَمَا يُعْلَمُ : " أَنَّ حَيَّ عَلَى خَيْرِ الْعَمَلِ " لَمْ يَكُنْ مِنْ الْأَذَانِ الرَّاتِبِ وَإِنَّمَا فَعَلَهُ بَعْضُ الصَّحَابَةِ لِعَارِضِ تَحْضِيضًا لِلنَّاسِ عَلَى الصَّلَاةِ "majmu ibn taymiyya" "as it is known that haya ala khayr l amol is not from the proper adhan however some of the companions did it to urge people to pray". End of posts. My final comments- Ibn tamiyya himself admits that this was the practice of the companions but makes the lame excuse that it was only a methodology for pushing people to pray, may Allah guide us ameen. I invite the Sunnis to correct their adhan, thanks.

    (salam)Most women that haven't been married often choose not to accept a proposal by men that were once married. Most of the time it goes both ways, and even then it's the mommies and daddies of said women that choose not to even listen to a proposal by men that were once married. A positive step forward is for the community to respect both men and women who have been previously married. To be honest, I believe a lot of this negativity towards previously married individuals comes mainly from the mentality of the mommies and daddies that if he/she isn't virgin, he/she isn't good enough for my child.

    The scene from the other side: When I read the westerners comments on the Quranic verses , their perception scares me honestly. I feel that they do allot of projection. I don't like how they understand the world. It is simply scary. When you perceive your opponent or enemy as barbaric and ruthless , you will not become much merciful with it when battle erupted. I have serious question: Why do Westerners always view the "other" as ugly and serial killer? It is not only Muslims but even those aliens who live in the outerspace whom we have not met yet! Why? Japanese anime view the other unknown creatures as cute sometimes. Even the angel of death in death note was cute scary angel eating apples.

    Is Mutah Frowned Upon In Your Culture?

    My point was not to get into a mutah war, but to stop dancing around the main issue (which you agree with) with long protracted posts about the benefits of mutah vs the horrors of the haram and the possible life long disastrous detriments of such. The only way the gender specific mutah stigma is going to be eradicated is when boys/men looking for a wife, and even more so, the parents of boys and men looking for a wife, openly choose to accept girls who have been married before. It would be an even stronger step in the right direction if the leaders in the community started the ball rolling by marrying their sons to previously married women in highly celebrated marriages. There is no other way. You can beat your chest, beat your drums and pontificate about mutah all you want but if the community does not have respect for women who have been previously married (mutah and nikah), you are yelling into the wind. And bruising your chest.

    I understand your zeal for mutah due to all the haram that is scooping up the young.... However.... Not to be a pain - well guess I am being a pain - but.. according to what you have written, men, after nikah, who before marriage: have been celibate - will continue to be celibate as there is something wrong with their levels of testosterone and they probably will not be able to have childrenhave been masturbating - will continue to masturbate as it has become an ingrained habit and the wife is in for some nasty surpriseshave been committing zina - will continue to commit zina as this is a lifestyle that is now impossible to break - and this will lead to divorceSo, to continue that line of reasoning, men/boys who contract mutah will also carry this habit into permanent marriage as, according to the above reasoning, it will be a lifestyle that is difficult (impossible) to break. In addition, as it is halal, there are no Islamic restrictions as there are with the above and would be much much easier to continue. If this is true, you will not get many women who will welcome this lifestyle into their family life. Also, in reference to women/girls: "live carefree in a large house with a new car, maids to wait on her, eating chocolate bon bons and chatting with her friends. This is what her parents tell her, and any brother who doesn't give her this is lazy, fasiq, stupid, mean, and stingy." ... kind of insulting as most women/girls are not flaky air heads and understand that marriage is hard work and it is a struggle to make it work (everyone has been raised in a family), especially in the West with the overwhelming financial demands. Most women understand that education is important for their personal development, and that, also, if things get tough that they will need to be employed outside the house. In the West, wives are the Plan B Financial Plan.... women more than get that and so do their husbands, although of course they would prefer that that never needs to be the case. I think you have sold men and women short as brain dead. What IS real is that girls that engage in mutah are NOT considered marriageable by prospective suitors and their families - so until that is addressed - this will remain an academic discussion that goes nowhere.

    Do Islamic Marriages Lack Romance?

    I'm not really sure to be perfectly honest. There's so little written on the subject by contemporary Muslim scholars and they mostly just blame the desire for "romance" on Western movies corrupting our minds with fanciful thoughts, rather than discussing the concept of romance itself as it has been interpreted historically I have. To be honest, from what I have found, they don't really address the idea of developing a personal relationship with another person too well. They focus more on stuff like "Allah (swt) says you need to share the household duties," than anything else.

    (salam) In regards to Qum, Hotel Fadak will charge around 100,000 tomans per night (depending on season), with breakfast. It's a really decent hotel and the breakfast is also much better than what you normally get in other hotels. You have to be careful though. If they see a foreigner coming in, they will probably tell you that the per-night price is around 170,000 tomans (speaking from experience) so you have to let them know that they are talking bogus. Tell them that other hotels (like al-Zahra which is much closer to the harram) are charging lower and threaten to walk out. Hotel Khorsheed and Qom International are really expensive and personally I don't think it's worth staying there. Hotel al-Zahra is a very close hotel and very decent (around 120,000 tomans per night as well with breakfast). There are a bunch of hotels right on that street where al-Zahra is and you can just go in and ask the prices. There is also hotel Irum right on Irum Street and the price is around 70,000 per night with breakfast. Besides that, if you go down this alleyway where the office of Ayatullah Zanjani is, there are about 2-3 hotels there as well, very cheap and really nice and comfortable ones. Though they are without breakfast, but the price range is aroudn 50-60,000 tomans per night. I think one of them was called Hotel Bahman. As for Mashad, there are just too many hotels there. Hotel Rizwan is a really nice and famous one and they charge around 70,000 per night - really close to the harram as well. Hotel Nima is also good (but it's a 15 minute walk from the harram). Wassalam

    How childish your last statements are...is beyond belief. Since you want to take clothing as an example for your "ya madad" then here have this.. Surah 12 verse 93 Take this, my shirt, and cast it over the face of my father; he will become seeing. And bring me your family, all together." Please go learn before talking

    (salam) Basically in Pakistani society sex and things concerning it are a taboo. Kids arent told even about sharii things worth knowing and have to discover on their own with almost zero guidance. They get caught in dilemmas about sex and the changes their bodies undergo. Kids are not born of mothers but angels drop them at the hospital and mothers have just to pick them. A kid asked his parents about what semen is(as he read it in regards to things making fast void) and he got a response as if he has done something heinous. If some one in late teens or even early to mid twenties ask for marriage, he is branded as besharam (shameless). First time I came to know about muta was when i got my hand on a booklet and on the first read I had to appreciate the very concept mutaa holds. I am quite sure mutaa may result in honor killings if parents come to know, you know people have Everest high honour here in Pakistan. Allah help us.

    Imam Hussain Wanted To Go India

    Im not sure how your brain works, but mine accepts evidence and reason, not hearsay and rumour. Allah says "Bring your proof if your truthful" in the quran several times.

    "Ahlussunnah wal Jama'ah"?

    I ask, is there any Sunni who can give me Quranic proof for the justification for proclaiming yourselves and using the bidah term of 'Ahlul Sunnah Waljamma'? Thanks.

    "Ahlussunnah wal Jama'ah"?

    no, most sunnis are the shias of Umar, and of Muawiya (LA) who is the one who coined the term "Ahlussunnah wal Jama'ah" which they still proudly call themselves while cursing the shia of Ali (as)... Btw, shia means follower, not party.
