    $100 per kw/H. This is the price for batteries that will make Electric Vehicles cheaper than Gasoline Vehicles. This is because the major cost, by far, of EV (Electric Vehicles) is the price of energy storage (batteries). This will cause a collapse in the price of oil. Since all they have as a source of their power is that fact that they control the oil, they will also collapse. My prediction. You can quote me on this. We are at $200 per kw/H now. Prices are dropping fast. 80% drop since 2010. We should achieve this by 2022 given current price curve. Big Party at my house in 2022 (further details coming.... ;)

    Mut`a is just as halal for women as it is for men, but there are reasons why the cultural double standards exist. For most men, to even consider marriage, you must be financially independent. It's very difficult to marry permanently before 25; and even marrying before 30 requires one to be very proactive, mature, go through rejections, etc. Muslim women on the other hand are regularly approached for marriage before 30. Regardless of where they are, what they're wearing or who they are with, they are pursued. It does not matter if they're still in school/college, it does not matter if they're working full-time or part-time, it does not matter if they hide all day in their basement; it does not even matter if they're mature or not, they and their families are still approached at that age. And it's not just the "pretty" ones, normal-looking women in that age group can get married if that is their goal. Libido for women peaks in their late 20s and 30s. For men, libido peaks after puberty and declines later. 15-25 is an awkward age for men, because they're not quite men, nor are they boys; and they cannot marry until they learn to become men. In general, women prefer a man that knows what he's doing (emotionally and physically mature, knows how to please women), and in general, men prefer a woman with less experience. So it makes complete sense to me that men would rely on mut`a until they can support a wife, and that women instead find a quality spouse while they are young. Obviously there are many millions of exceptions to everything I've said here, I'm speaking very generally. To answer your last questions, it really depends on their age. If a woman in my family is older or divorced, mut`a is her business. But it's usually not worth it for a woman to waste her youth or virginity on mut`a, because those are important in finding a permanent spouse.

    Just for the sake of increasing information and clarity: Mutah does not necessarily entail physical intimacy nor does the mahr necessarily consist of money.

    Request for prayers!

    Salam dear Shia of the nobility, Forgive me for opening a thread about this, but I would like to use you people as a Wasila to success. My situation is as follows. Since my mother passed away tragically due to my step fathers psycho terror and God-knows-what-else, my step father has waged legal war against my sisters and me. He has been trying to kick me and my wife out of our home and has succeeded via hook and crook to take almost all of our inheritance land (agricultural land) from us. I am holding out under a sort of siege in my house, making sure somebody is home all the time, so he doesn't send people to break in. I have seven vicious guard dogs in case a few of them get poisoned, and am fighting as much as I can with limited resources, while he is stacking up insane amounts of money in offshore accounts of British virgin Islands. He is super connected and threatened to send people with guns after my sisters if they step foot into our lands. At the same time he confessed to being OK with playing dirty. This is just an introduction and small summary of what I went through and am going through. In Sha Allah we will win, but I would like to urge you all to pray for your fellow Shia brother to win against those who follow in the way of those who disinherit people. Supposedly praying for our siblings in Allah is like praying for ourselves - to the power of one million. So please anybody who prays for me, let me know in specifics in this thread, pm, or elsewhere, what I can pray for you. If Allah gives me the chance to do so, I will. This man killed my mother and is trying to destroy me now. He will fail in Sha Allah. Him and his evil new wife, all my lawyers who jumped ship because of his money, all his accomplices, and supposed "friends" of my mom who took his side. Fi amanilah

    Bismehe Ta3ala Assalam Alikum dear brother That's why what people wear, I do not hold a first impression of that person. Only through conversation and multiple occasions do I know if the person is sincere, authentic, and really has taqwa. There is an Arabic saying, Idtha ma bekhaf Allah Khaf minnu If he doesn't fear God, fear him. M3 Salamah, Fe Amin Allah

    Also, I would say that we can't treat 'Women in the West' or 'Jews' or 'Christians' as a block. They are all different, with different goals, personality, knowledge and levels of commitment to their religion. I was hoping you'd see the humor in my answers, but basically 'it varies' is the answer. In Christianity and Judaism, there is no such a thing as 'Mutah' or 'Temporary Marriage'. Historically (excluding the last 150 years or so), there was Polygamy practiced in both Christianity and Judaism and educated Christians and Jews are fully aware that Polygamy was a practice of the Prophets of God that they believe in (Abraham, David, Soloman, etc) and we believe in. The ones who know their religion and stick to it 'to the letter' would never do it. But as you probably already guessed, most Christians and Jews are not like that. They (and most Muslims also do this) take the 'Shopping Cart' approach to religion, they follow what they like and don't follow what they don't like, then try to find some way to justify to themselves why they aren't following the parts they know to be true. Also in Christianity, there is no 'Sharia' or religious law that carries with it penalties for violating it. So most laws that are in Islam are also in Christianity and Judaism, but these are 'recommendations', not 'requirements'. So they have a different view of religion and religious law.

    Thanks again uhty. This is called "inclusiveness" which includes anybody. That is how gays got 'accepted' in the 90s. Anything to keep the money coming in. l read a couple of years ago many small churches are now closed because in the 1990s people wanted to go to the rock-bands and sing-alongs at the megachurches and these are now having trouble filing their bleachers.

    My argument to my Iranian friend who was sure that asking imam for help gave him results was as follows: Just like Christians call upon Jesus, father, son, holy ghost, saints, mother of God, etc, for help, calling upon any other can work in the short term. We have shayteen around us who dance in happiness when we choose to partner others than God in our prayers, so they become our waly and solve whatever problem we may face. When we ask for help from an imam, how do we know it's really him who answers? There is no way to be sure of where the response is from, just like if you play wija board and call upon and imam, and I can guarantee you that there will be a response. But I can also guarantee that the person or jinn responding isn't actually and imam, Elvis, or a diseased relative. It is not a safe way, and it Arabic the word safety is amn, and a momin is literally somebody who has amn/safety upon him or her. We just want the safe way, the straight way. The way of God and his prophet. The prophet only prayed to God and God tells us clearly about only praying to Him for help and I understand and respect that some don't see it. To me it's crystal clear alhamdulilah.

    Once an Iranian friend of mine had this discussion with me about calling upon Ali for help in times of trouble. At the end of the spoken discussion he got so frustrated that he actually said (in German) : "I hope that you get in real trouble and then are forced to call upon him". I thought that was kind of mean, but I forgave him for that. Sad that people don't find calling Allah for help as enough. It works for me alhamdulilah, and I've been in a lot of trouble in my almost 40 years of living in this body.

    There is absolutely no doubt about the existence of Allah. “I found myself subject to one of two options: either I created myself or something other than myself created me. If I created myself, I am also subject to one of two options: either I created my self while my self already existed – but then I would not need to create it since it already existed – or I created my self while I was nonexistent, but you already know that the nonexistent cannot bring about anything. Therefore, the third meaning is proven – that I have a Creator, Who is Lord of the Worlds.” Imam Sadiq (as)

    What Happens After Death?

    is there a guide or written document or hadiths saying what happens after death? Does the spirit stay on the earth for forty days? Or they face punishment of the grave? Or do they go directly to barzakh and wait till judgement day or does the grave become wide if they did good deeds and it becomes comfortable? also can the deceased see other family members that are deceased at barzakh.

    Parents thread

    Surely any academic shortfall could be made up with enrichment activities at home? Would it severely hurt his university or work training options? Having regrets about academics is not nearly so bad as having regrets about social choices, especially where it comes to boys and girls. I say this as a person who was raised non-Muslim and has experienced both.

    May Allah (s.w.t) ressurrect you with those three, the people of higher Iman according to you. Just have a look at their higher Iman in the following verses: Surah Al-Hujraat, Verse 1: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تُقَدِّمُوا بَيْنَ يَدَيِ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ O you who believe! be not forward in the presence of Allah and His Apostle, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is Hearing, Knowing. (English - Shakir) Surah Al-Hujraat, Verse 2: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَرْفَعُوا أَصْوَاتَكُمْ فَوْقَ صَوْتِ النَّبِيِّ وَلَا تَجْهَرُوا لَهُ بِالْقَوْلِ كَجَهْرِ بَعْضِكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ أَن تَحْبَطَ أَعْمَالُكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لَا تَشْعُرُونَ O you who believe! do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, and do not speak loud to him as you speak loud to one another, lest your deeds became null while you do not perceive. (English - Shakir) They were on the height of faith when running away from battle fields in Uhud & Hunayn: Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 153: إِذْ تُصْعِدُونَ وَلَا تَلْوُونَ عَلَىٰ أَحَدٍ وَالرَّسُولُ يَدْعُوكُمْ فِي أُخْرَاكُمْ فَأَثَابَكُمْ غَمًّا بِغَمٍّ لِّكَيْلَا تَحْزَنُوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَاتَكُمْ وَلَا مَا أَصَابَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ When you ran off precipitately and did not wait for any one, and the Apostle was calling you from your rear, so He gave you another sorrow instead of (your) sorrow, so that you might not grieve at what had escaped you, nor (at) what befell you; and Allah is aware of what you do. (English - Shakir) Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 155: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَوَلَّوْا مِنكُمْ يَوْمَ الْتَقَى الْجَمْعَانِ إِنَّمَا اسْتَزَلَّهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ بِبَعْضِ مَا كَسَبُوا وَلَقَدْ عَفَا اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ حَلِيمٌ (As for) those of you who turned back on the day when the two armies met, only the Shaitan sought to cause them to make a slip on account of some deeds they had done, and certainly Allah has pardoned them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Forbearing. (English - Shakir)

    The Nature of Atheistic Doubt

    when ever I read such topics, All I take away is confusion. Not confusion of how great the information is, rather how much jargon and nonsensical opinion is implied with the hue of weak literature. In a previous state, it gave the impression of intelligentsia, but with improved reading, even the debates of clowns on the YT, one is left with only one conclusion. the motives of both parties is never about the existence of a deity, it is more about their own positions. To prove a deity should be simple just as to disprove it would be simple too. Neither can do it simply, thus they retort to complex idea and language. And with time, its sinks further into the abyss of complexity just to prove how much more thinking has been involved. Just a fallacy. Both belief and non-belief are based on need. Fill that stomach and the need will be associated.

    If you can read Arabic sister, this hadith says it loud and clear; أنّ ممّا كتبه‌ الإمام‌ الرضا علیه‌ السلام‌ للمأمون‌، قوله‌: إنَّ اللَهَ لا يُدْخِلُ النَّارَ مُؤْمِناً وَقَدْ وَعَدَهُ الجَنَّةَ؛ وَلاَ يُخْرِجُ مِنَ النَّارِ كَافِراً وَقَدْ أَوْعَدُهُ النَّارَ وَالخُلُودَ فِيهَا. وَمُذْنِبُو أَهْلِ التَّوْحِيدِ يَدْخُلُونَ النَّارَ وَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهَا، وَالشَفَاعَةُ جَائِزَةٌ لَهُمْ. Besides, this is the consensus of our sect, that a Shi'i will not be sentenced to eternal damnation. I'm not sure about the one who has abandoned prayer. There are some hadiths which imply or say that the one who abandons prayer is a kafir, or that he will not be granted intercession. Either way, this may be an exceptional case, but I'm not sure. But just about sinners, then they will be given intercession insha Allah even if some of them will temporarily be punished

    I've been thinking about exactly the same thing recently. I haven't read any of the later posts so I hope that I'm not repeating what someone else has written. I don't think it's arrogance. Sadly one of my cousins is an atheist too. He knows literally everything there is to know about every religion. He has read almost every book that is worth reading about Islam. He is without a shadow of doubt one of the most emotionally evolved and intelligent people I know. He is working as a Managing Director for a multinational company and is an exceptionally emotionally intelligent individual. He is a morally upright man so it's not as if he is using this as his ticket to live a crazy lifestyle - he just has no faith in Islam or religion. My family are all well read and very well versed in religion - in all honesty I have a fair bit of catching up to do in comparison to them. My entire family have spent literally evenings upon evenings debating with my atheist cousin but to no avail. It may sound terrible to you but sometimes my atheist cousin is so convincing in his arguments that my sis in law once said that she better call it a night because she felt that she was beginning to question her own faith. I could see that others in the room were showing the same signs but probably didn't dare to express it. I'm sure they felt relieved that someone else said it first and that they weren't alone in their thought process. But, when my sis in law woke up the next day she felt resolute in her faith again. In the case of my cousin, how can you make someone revive their faith in Allah when he already knows everything that is worth knowing about world religions, theology, philosophy, sciences etc. etc? We are not dealing with an ignorant person here. He is a very eloquent and impressive individual. He has spoken to many maulanas too but when they get stumped because they can't answer his questions the maulanas start acting all defensive and coy. There are some people who are atheists out of sheer ignorance and laziness. I believe that individuals like @Klanky are not necessarily averse to religion or God. Some atheists probably in fact want to be convinced of the existence of a creator or alternatively want someone to challenge their thought process in every way possible to ensure that their decision of being an atheist is correct. Why else would individuals like @Klanky waste hours of his/her life on this forum. He/she is not trying to convince you all to be an atheist, but subconsciously he/she probably wants someone to convince him/her that there is a God. I sense the same thing with my atheist cousin. Muslim people in the community are often rude to my cousin and say why can't you "Just believe? We do." His answer is: "Why don't you convince me to believe then?" His response always makes me think that there is hope for him. I hope and pray that one day the penny drops and my cousin finds his faith. Let's not be disrespectful towards atheists. We should be compassionate and understanding. Maybe they are trying to find a reason to believe and by being negative towards them we may push them even further away from believing. BTW I am not accusing you of this @dragonxx. It's just a general comment. I don't view atheists as people who don't believe in God... but merely people who don't believe in God yet. On a side note the sis in law that I'm referring to is not married to my atheist cousin.

    The only problem is Assad is against the Muslim Brotherhood and his experience with Hamas ended up with a stab in the back. The pro-Qatari media still demonises him and attacks him, and they are the ones who spent billions on toppling him along with Turkey. This is why Assad openly supported the coup in Egypt against the Morsi regime, while the Iranians were clearly against the coup. The Iranian-Syrian alliance is based on mutual interest in that they were both enemies of Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi Ba'athists, that they both housed anti-Saddam opposition groups, they both allied on the Lebanese front during and after the Civil war, which made Syria the transit route for Iran to Lebanon. Ideologically, however, the Iranians are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. Which is why they will support the Brotherhood cause almost anywhere except in situations like Syria, where they have a special relationship from the 1980s.

    There's a million reasons to be proud of Iraq. Have you been to all of our imams and holy places in Iraq? Have you ever witnessed Iraqis during the mashaya and Arbaeen and the service they offer to foreigners? How they let them into their private homes, feed them, wash their clothes, offer them everything they have for free? After all wars, poverty and thulm they are still standing and serving our imams. MashaAllah on all of them! Wallahi rafa3to rasna! I've been here almost a month now touring all of our holy sites. And I have never been prouder as an Iraqi. (As if that is even possible as proud as I already am).

    There are lots of simple and clear incidents where an Aalim or even a common man asked Imam of our time (atfs) for help, he (atfs) came and helped them and not even once he said 'You should ask Allah for help and not me'. If Imam (atfs) has no problem someone calling him for help then the God-given intelligence tells me no one should have.

    Problem Adolescence

    Who said that's right and healthy? Not every 16 year old is mature enough to handle the commitment of a relationship, whether temporary or permanent. If this individual is mature enough and responsible enough, then that's amazing. But is it practical for a 16 year old? How will he handle the situation if the wife gets pregnant? Realistically, it won't be a great situation at all. Secondly, who said there are young shia/ahl al kitab girls willing to have a temporary marriage with young shia boys?? Thirdly, young girls are not little tools for boys to play with, seek their pleasure from, and then refresh with a new girl when they get bored. Finally, would the men on this thread be willing to marry a girl who's had a mutah/s previously, especially at such a young age? Would all men be willing? The simple answer is no, you don't even need to look further than this forum to realise that. Will many women want to marry a man who's had many mutahs in the past? Again, simple answer is no. Instead of looking at temporary solutions, young boys should learn to control themselves and their desires. Unfortunately, life's not fair, and no one gets everything their way. That is an important and valuable lesson for young boys struggling with such issues. What will happen if they get married and have a fight with their wife? Go have a mutah because their wife is unavaliable? What happens when their wife is pregnant, and cannot fulfill his desires? What happens when she is literally physically unable to please him? OP: long story short is, find other ways to get rid of this urge. Exercise alot, and as another member has suggested on a different topic, if you have to, spend alot of time outside, with other people where you know you're unable to resort to haram when you get such urges.

    Is it shirk?

    You come to realization that help comes only from Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. So calling should always direct to Him سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى and it would be shirk to direct to others, because directing to other than Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى means that person believes that help comes also from other than Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, which is false.

    Returning to my old sins

    Blaming someone else for their sins frees them from responsibility to improve. Their thinking is "if only (other person) (did/didn't) (thing), then I'd be so much a better person." Better would be for them to say "if I (do/don't) (thing) I will be a better person." And then they can take action to improve. As it is, all they can do is wait, stay the same, and blame. It is arrogance. Instead of being humbled by their sins, they feel superior to the blamed one.

    How do you even define a miracle to begin with? What kind of a miracle would it take exactly? I think the beating of your heart that has been beating non stop without the need for any maintenance stops since you were inside your mother all those years ago until the second you read this text is a miracle. You might not think about it because its taken for granted as part of your nature but that does not make it any less of a miracle in my opinion.

    The Most Reliable Hadiths On The Mahdi

    قيام القائم The Rise of the Qa’im ظهورالمهديفيرواياتمعتبرة The Appearance of the Mahdi in Established Narrations On the special occasion of the 15th of Sha`ban, I have re-released my free online resource on the Mahdi. This resource - called "Qiyam al-Qa'im" (The Rise of the Qa'im) - is a collection of the most reliable hadiths on the 12th Imam from the most ancient sources. It is available in both Arabic and English. The book covers various topics on the Mahdi, including his occultation, his uprising, parallels between him various prophets, the Sufyani, signs of his coming, and more. The hadiths were taken from books like al-Kafi, Kamal ad-Deen, Tusi and Nu`mani's books on Occultation, and others. You can read about our hadith-grading standards in the "Preliminaries" section. This book was available online up until a few months ago. Since then, I've revised all of the gradings, added a new section, added many new hadiths, and added a commentary. I would recommend this version to both new and older readers. Without further ado, we present Qiyam al-Qa'im: http://www.imamiyya.com/hadith/qiyam 1. Preliminaries 2. Recognition of the Imam 3.
