    The Divine Will

    The first creation of Allah is His will (mashi’a). The mashi’a is a created light that operates on the realm of the creation and interacts with the rest of creation. Since the mashi’a is subject to change and affect, it is separate from His Unified and Unknowable Essence. علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن عمر بن اذينة، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: خلق الله المشيئة بنفسها ثم خلق الاشياء بالمشيئة. Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq (as) said, “Allah created the will (mashi’a) by its self. Then, He created the things by the will.” The mashi’a is one entity (ذات بسيطة) with four d

  3. Salam, I have been watching this very well done, in depth, and informative lecture series by Maulana Rizwi in Toronto. I will post the videos here. If anyone has questions or would like to discuss, please post on this thread. It is rare to find lectures of this caliber and detail on this topic in English.

  9. As salaamun aleikum, few points here. There are many things to take into consideration here, and as always, there are exceptions and outliers. One of the things is, many people who are still young and virgin themself, want someone of the same standing as them, and this is understandable. May Allah grant them their wishes. Another type of people don't care too much, and say it's okay if it was done in a Halal manner. Then there are the older ones who have lived life long enough to understand that this is not something that has so much importance in and of itself to obsess over. Ultim

  10. Salam, Such people as Rumi and Ibn Arabi would consider themselves to be slaves of the Prophet (S) and his family (as). They may not have been Shia in form and in outward activity, but they were certainly Shi’a in their hearts or else they would not be seeing Prophet (S) or Anbiya (as) in their waking states with their eyes and learning from them.

  12. Salam it is a hadith from Imam Mahdi (aj) which during occultion shias must refer to Narrators of Hadiths which currently Marajis are these common deputies not private deputies of Imam Mahdi (aj) in principles of Shia Islam we must find it with ourselves only for Furu deen for everyday life &incidents we must choose a Marja wisely not blindly (Refference) in light of Quran & teachings& hadiths of Ahlul-Bayt (as) Happy birthday of Imam Ali (a.s) The born in Kaaba

    Probably your longest post in SC history...and it’s about Vitamin “D”enialism and sun shunning? Life is qualitative, not just a binary “alive” or “dead”. Vitamin D deficiency is well known to be associated with negative mood, immunosuppression, chronic pain, and the like. Also, more people live closer to the equator than near the poles. How did that happen?

  17. The people who openly practice homosexuality, even if they call themselves muslims(a) are considered fasiq from an Islamic perspective. Fasiq means someone who does haram openly and without considering it as haram. There are certain rules for dealing with such people. For example you are not allowed to enter business or contracts with them, you are not allowed to marry them, as sis Hameedeh said above, women are not allowed to uncover themselves in front of them (even if it is another women). For men also, the rules about dealing with other men (for example you are allowed to shake their hand,

  18. Donya is not heaven, nor hell. It is between the both. You can experience hell here and heaven here depending on how good you are as a person. The fact that you are a human means you have an ability to choose whatever you want, that's the gift we got from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. The thing is... Hardships surely kills sins, if you are trying to get to him, he tests you with your struggles now. Instead of focusing on losing hope, try to ask Allah to not test you with tests that can lead you astray. Try to focus on your daily prayers and really, pray salat al layl. It has a lot of benefit

  23. No. It is known that the bloodline of Muhammad (SAW) is through Fatima Al Zahra (AS) and that the Prophet had no sons that grew up and his offspring is through this Holy lady. It is interesting and I do want to know what is the background etc. here. There are hadiths and literature on this subject. If someone is able to then please share it with us.

  28. How the Gospels were created Constantine then instructed Eusebius to organize the compilation of a uniform collection of new writings developed from primary aspects of the religious texts submitted at the council. His instructions were: Eusebius amalgamated the "legendary tales of all the religious doctrines of the world together as one", using the standard god-myths from the presbyters' manuscripts as his exemplars. Merging the supernatural "god" stories of Mithra and Krishna with British Culdean beliefs effectively joined the orations of Eastern and Western presbyters

  30. It sounds unauthentic to me because of two main reason: 1. Imam do not command indecencies like what is mentioned in this alleged hadith (to walk down the street naked). 2. Imam knows his status that if he ask or say something to anyone, it will become obligatory on listener to obey his command. For instance, if Imam asked me to walk down the street naked, I would have obeyed his command without hesitation and without wasting a second.

    No one is saying that Iranians should stop celebrating Nowruz, and no one is hating on it. But there's a big difference between a cultural event being accepted, and that cultural event being portrayed as a Shi'a 'eid', and the day that Adam descended to earth, and the day Imam Mahdi will return. There are, unfortunately, very many people who do not understand the very subtle distinction made by Ayatollah Khamenaei above, for example, about the 'true meaning' of Nowruz and assume that 1 Faravardin is some big, important date in Islamic history. Believing that is more or less a bid'ah as you're

  37. The institution of marriage as practiced in patriarchal civilizations was a corrective to hypergamy. Hypergamy is what happens when these institutions and customs fall and base animal nature is the law of the land. It is the pursuit of women to a small minority of high-status males who either would not or cannot keep them. The overall result is fewer marriages, fewer monogamous relationships, fewer fathers, a declining birth rate, more homosexuality, and interestingly, less sex overall. Marriage was almost a guarantee a few decades ago, but it is increasingly becoming luxury. Western societies

Second, acid throwing is not really a "western" thing. This is like a, mountain dwelling fundamentalist abusive husband thing, not really like a western, i like eating crumpets kind of thing.

  42. There was a book written by Prophet Moses AS that was inspired by God. This has now been mixed with writings that are not from Moses, that is our position. We dont say everything in the Torah or Bible is not from Prophets, but we say it has been mixed and now we do not know what is the correct.

    Would you marry her?

    Dear child. Humans have biological needs and they come in many forms. A child like fantasy that the divines did not do X and Y has no relevance to the majority. Sexual abstinence does and cannot conform to all types of the human. If it is available they will take it, if not then it express it self in other forms. Be it self abuse or emotional dejection. Only with wisdom and age does the human has the ability to control such a transfer of energy. There are many here who do not agree with it, yet many of these are still single. Its not like women are throwing themselves to them. Mutah is practic

    Would you marry her?

    Let us remember the example of Bibi Asma bint Umays (sa). She was first married to Ja'far ibn Abi Talib (as), then Abu Bakr ibn Abi Quhafa, and then Ameerul Mu'mineen, Ali ibn Abi Talib(asws). She was the mother of such great sons as Muhammad ibn Ja'far (as), Abdullah ibn Ja'far (as), Awn ibn Ja'far (as), and Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr (ra). She bore two sons, Yahya (as) and Awn (as) to our master, Ameerul Mu'mineen (as). In Shaykh as-Saduq (rh)'s book al-Khisal, she is listed as one of the women of paradise.
