  1. There is a hadith e qudsi in our books too and I remember this from Sheikh Farroh Sekaleshfar's lecture that Allah the most Glorious says that O ibn Adam when you kill your egoic self for Me then the blood money falls upon Me and so I become the eyes by which you see and become the tongue through which you talk and become the hands through which you do things etc and so much so that it is then I who takes your ruh when you die and not the angel of death. (Paraphrased as I remember) What one has to realize is that these attributes and functions fall in the vertical arch and in that

    Salam. I feel the same way sometimes. You can only do what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gave you the ability to do, nothing more. The only thing you really control in this world is your own niyyat (intention). That can go a long way, but it can't solve everything.

  4. I advise you to read one of his book "Fusus Al-Hakam". You would need a teacher who can first teach you the terminologies used in each "Fus" of that book. @haideriam has highlighted the matter correctly. There exist always a capacity of betterment and expansion in any understanding. So we need to go through the views of Ibn Arabi first and then we will be qualified to say something about his work. Following is the link where a Sunni Scholar Ahmed Javed is explaining first chapter of "Fusus al-Hakam". It is in Urdu language. @Cherub786, do you know the speaker in above

  5. I agree, we can look to Muhammad (sawas) or the Imams (عليه السلام) for inspiration in trying times but they should never be a source of emotional blackmail or guilt for us. Not every situation they endured is applicable for us. Not every situation that we modern humans deal with on daily basis can be compared to their lives.

  6. @Gaius I. Caesar @layman I agree with both of you that one of the tests is saber, and the other being a test relying fully on Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I also agree with Gaius that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wants me to be thankful for having a logical, sound mind. Yes, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wants me to understand that human beings cannot be relied on one another for complete peace, comfort, and security-not even from your spouse. That has to come from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Everyone is going to take consequences for their actions alone. When we die, we

  8. Bismillah. Many Ulima of Shia has considered it to be halal and completely valid but people of subcontinent abuse them and curse them for this. There is a famous hadith of Imam Jaffer-e-Sadiq (عليه السلام) that everything is permissible until its forbidden. Can anyone who believes that Syed girl cannot marry Non-Syed boy, show any authentic hadith in which imam prohibited it? If not then why are you innovating deen with your personal views? Isn't that Qias? There is no Ayah of Quran on that, no Hadith, no ijma then what do you have?

    True ^^ Where I live men usually don't go to women for help. The fact that two of these were men (who had worked for me in the past) who sought help for finding a job and family issues lead me to think that a. Maybe Allah put a thought in their head to come to me in which maybe I should be doing something for them b. But more likely, they had exhausted/been disappointed with any potentially helpful men around them which is the main source of my frustration. Their problems weren't big but what I so commonly observe is that people who are settled in their own lives rarely go out

    I feel so restless and frustrated. People approach me for help with various problems. I am not always in a position to provide a solution and it leaves me heavy-hearted. I mean someone from so far away and who I don't talk to on regular basis, in a desperate state of mind, thought of reaching out to me for help and I couldn't do anything for him. :(((

    There's a few different ways you can approach this topic. People have different opinion, beliefs, and life experiences, so there is no 'one size fits all' approach to convincing yourself of this. The first way, the most common was, was already stated in this thread. You believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Rasoulallah, and Quran. If you believe that the Quran is from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) then there are literally hundreds of verses that speak of the afterlife. So Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is telling you there is an afterlife, so believe it. In fact, this is the basis. If

    Kurds And Jinn

    It was my personal unique idea. I don't have a huge understanding of Arabic, I have only read the translations and memorized transliterations with the usage of their recitations by Arab speakers. However, the quran is a book of context. Dhureya could/does very well mean Offspring or seed but it could be a case that the offspring is referring to the devils associated with Iblis(LA) who may or may not be his children. The second thing I'd say is my own experience, the only hadith about Iblis having children I've read is this from many years on shiachat. I managed to find it: But it turns o

    Salam, Your mind is very healthy. It has good imagination. Just you need to control and manage it. We hear through our ears many type sounds, but we will listen to the importance portions. We can control what we want to listen, but we can't control what the ears hear. The heart is important and powerful tool to focus. If a person heart falls in love, the mind will follow it. The heart can hear, see, understand and intelligent. The mind can hear and see physical events, but the heart is to listen, control, filter and compute. If the heart fills with love to Allahbswt, Nub

  22. Salam brother, I think that happens to pretty much everyone. The inability to control this bird of imagination. For namaz, what works for me is the inner dialogue I have with myself before starting namaz that I’m going to be talking to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) so that when I am reciting I’m not reciting surahs but making conversation. Meditation helps too? Focusing on your breathing, honing in to the different sensations taking place in your body. That also helps silence the nonstop chattering taking place in the mind. Allowing thoughts to come and go; basically becoming

    Controlling the Mind

    Salam, As for your question, We're in the same boat brother. I overthink things as well but don't think of this as something negative. People who overthink things have very analytical minds in terms of thinking solutions for problems for example when I'm in a situation, I think of a hundred ways this situation can go and propose a 100 solutions to counter those scenarios if I get into them. Is this a bad thing? No it's not. However, the problem is if you're overthinking negatively about your future/school/anything that is giving you anxiety. As Imam Hassan((عليه السلام)) says only concern

I then heard from the Prophet (ﷺ) some remarks which I could not understand. I asked my father: What is he saying: He said: all of them will belong to Quraysh.

  27. Just fyi opindia is pro-bjp. However, I have heard this story before and this kind of statements can be expected from both sunni & wahabis. For starters, this old man doesn't understand that converting someone to Islam by terrorizing & luring does not mean anything. It has to be through logic and rationale. Secondly, he's furthering the BJP/RSS narrative of 'Hindu khatre me hai' (Hindus are in danger). Thirdly, without passport of Wilayat-e-Ali (عليه السلام), no one is going to heaven. So, uncle should not jump on Hindus are going to hell.

  28. Yes, and some of the shi'a scholars have endorsed it while some are totally against it. No wonder our Aimma (عليهم اسلام) has cursed these people and warned us against them. Imam al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) called Sufis as enemies of Ahl al-Bayt (عليه السلام) and regarded those inclined toward them as to be resurrected with them and said, “Soon a group of people who claim to love us will incline toward the Sufis, assimilate to them, name themselves after them, and justify their sayings; whoever is inclined towards them is not from us and I am averse to them.” (Al-Ithna ‘Ashariyya, p. 32)

  33. Spirituality is nothing but other name of knowlng Allah or getting proximity to Allah . And it's not the verses are narration that makes one to know Allah. When one really breaks every relation and dependence from other than Allah. Then Allah gradually makes His Tawheed to decend or manifest in one's heart.

  37. Those books are Qur'anic verses or traditions of Ahlulbayt (عليهم اسلام) or their explanation. Ibne Arabi was neither shi'a nor did he had Aqeedah similar to us. That's why we can refer books written by our scholars (with an open/critical mind) but not Ibne Arabi's non-sense. I don't understand why some people are hell bent on learning Ibne Arabi's crap when everything we need is given by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) through Ahlulbayt (عليهم اسلام).

After this episode started, I'm seeing more and more clips in favor of Yazid (la), potraying him as God-fearing legitimate caliph and using titles like rahimallaho anhu. If we don't expose them this movement of theirs will continue till all sunnis unanimously start believing in his khilafat as they do for the first two.

It declares that this transformation comes through knowing Jesus the messiah (Christ) 2 Corinthians chapter 5:17-18 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. As I was thinking about it, I drew this picture. The old life of boakenness and emptiness has been transformed to a new li

  48. Muslims, at least, don't confess sins to a person to be 'forgiven' by them. That is not something that is part of the religion as it is in other religions. But they confess, mostly, because they think if they tell someone they can 'get it off their chest' and they will feel better, psychologically. Not everyone thinks that way but alot of people do.

  49. (salam) (bismillah) Ibn Taymiyyah professed to be Sunni, are you saying Ibn `Arabi professed to being a Shee`ah? This isn't about Ibn Taymiyyah and his kufr beliefs, but to compare Ibn Taymiyyah's standing to the Salafis and Ibn `Arabi's standing to the Shee`ah is sheer and utter nonsense. If you read the books of Ibn `Arabi and compare them to the teaching of our A'immah (AS), you will see that he was not a Shee`ah no should any Shee`ah praise what he has said. (salam)
