  5. 2020 was for me life changing I failed, I learned to accept my failures and to move on. I shattered in thousand pieces but Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gave me the power to change myself to come to his path and accept my existence. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) blessed me and gave me hidayat to follow his path with wasila of Ahlulbayt AS. Maybe 2020 will be considered as the darkest year in the history but for me it is the brightest year of my life because I found the truth.

  6. Concerning that ayah saying obey Allah, his Messenger, and Ulil Amr, we do not disobey them. Why? Because they are Ahlulbayt (عليهم السلام). If it is the “Caliphs” they say they are, then they are proving their ignorance to the whole Ummah. If it is how they say it, their most revered sahaba should be in hell. All they did was argue with each other. Now, as for the Prince of Believers (عليه السلام), he disobeyed them. Does that mean he is in hell (authobillah)? Never. Refer to Verse 33 of Surat al Ahzab. He is purified from sins. It is not a sin in the 1st place. Why? Because he was the divine

  7. I don't know if the hadith is true or not. And I think saying Qur'an has a tehreef is a question upon Allah's book and Allah's words in the verses related to preservation. And I think this should invalidate the authenticity of Hadith. You can question Tafseer al Qummi but not Quran when Allah is saying that Allah is the protector of Quran. Imamate/Wilayat had a purpose of establishment and that was to keep the guidance alive and to provide the real true message. If actual Qur'an is with Imam al Mehdi (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف), how is it useful for the humanity? If it was k

So as Sadaqa on her behalf I would like to mail it to anyone who is in need as I know they are ridiculously expensive. Plz do not resell for profit but use it genuinely. I want to help others out.

    Bullying

    Maybe I'm wrong but I feel like your doing this thread because of someone that has bullied you recently. Yes, throughout childhood by my own family I was fatshamed. Now as a child i thought it was bullying, and even though their intentions as parents were because they were worried for my health, it was still wrong. A bully's intention will always be wanting to make you feel insecure and put out their own insecurities on you, just to make themselves feel better. They want you to become vulnerable to their commentary. Parents on the other hand believe they're doing it for good intentio

  11. We all know about the importance of offering prayer in its prime time, unless there is a genuine valid reason not to do so. We have the famous dying words of Imam Jafar Sadiq ((عليه السلام)): "Our shafa'at doesn't reach those who neglect prayers" The generally accepted view is that delaying prayers unnecessarily comes under the heading of 'neglecting prayers'. I have been trying my best to offer my obligatory prayers in their prime time for the past couple of weeks. As soon as there are 5 mins left for the beginning of prayer, I rush to change into my prayer clothes (having a pe

  12. This is one of the most controversial topic in Islamic History. I took the time to research and bring together a thread over the complete story. We are not trying to dive in on how Abu Bakr usurped the Caliphate or how the Saqīfa went down. Just the attack on the house. It starts with Ali Ibn Abi Talib (عليه السلام) not wanting to give allegiance, he wasn’t the only one who opposed Abu Bakr, (The people who opposed the pledge to Abu Bakr) “Ali, Abbas, Zubayr, and Sa’d Ibn Ubada...” Al Aqd al Farid, Ibn Abd al Bar al Andlusi, Vol.5, P.13 "...He (A

  14. It is not simply the fact it was narrated over 300 years after the Messenger, but the mere fact that it appears from nowhere with no chain of transmission or chain of transmitters that are authentic. Do not use the appeal to hypocrisy to defend your position. If you make the claim that the Ibn Saba' story is a fabrication, prove it. Though there is no need, because I really will not read it or look at it. It is prevalent in both of our books. Bring the quote from Ibn Hajar's book in response to al-Masudi. You will see that he mentions that al-Masudi is a Shi'a because of his tendencies an

  16. I only sincerely have two issues with Zaydism: 1) That I find that there are a lot of Zaydis, historically and in our modern times, who hold the same takfeeri views that the 12ers have. 2) I am not sure of the Zaydi madhhab's sources; meaning, who are the "Ahl al-Bayt" that the Zaydi scholars take from and how much can I rely on the Zaydi scholars to accurately report their madhhab. Since I've never studied Zaydism on that level, I can't really say one way or the other whether I think its a legitimate madhhab to follow or not. I'd have to check out some of your other entries si

  19. It is preserved in the purified hearts, no doubt about that. The sequence, the place & reason of revelation as well as its ta'vil. This alone is the very reason to believe that the text available with us is the true revealed text. إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ 15:9 If you think that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has preserved the dhikr in the purified hearts as mentioned in this verse: بَلْ هُوَ آيَاتٌ بَيِّنَاتٌ فِي صُدُورِ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ وَمَا يَجْحَدُ بِآيَاتِنَا إِلَّا الظَّالِمُونَ 29:49 And those pur

  20. 1st point is true and I don't have any doubts about it. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) did write the tafseer of the Holy Quran. Imam Hasan al Askari (عليه السلام) wrote the tafseer of the Quran. What we have today as tafsir from Imam al Askari (عليه السلام), might or might not be exact. So, as of tafsir yes. And it even relates with other hadith such as thi that Imam al Mehdi (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف) will fight for the interpretation of the Holy Quran. But as of 2 and 3, I still think it opposes the Quran's verses. Such as 'Quran is a clear sign'. So, why doubts would be left??

  22. Yes, although rare, there can be people in this world who are compelled to remain single and have no option of marriage or mutah. Prophet Isa (عليه السلام) is an example whose circumstances did not allow him to get married and he remained celibate all his life. People in today's world who face situations where marriage is not an option, should follow the footsteps of Isa (عليه السلام).

  23. Wa alaikas salam, No, dear sister. I don't think it's going to adversely affect your spiritual experiences. I just noted something which I have been told that the greatest of the mystics do. I myself am not very sure of the reasons though. My guess is that they are secretive about their experiences because normally when they narrate them to people, it elicits praise and can cause pride to creep into their hearts, and thus deviate them from the path of humility. But this isn't the case with you. And I don't think it's going to have any adverse effects. I would, once again, strongly ad

  26. There were a few replies so I will try to summarize everything in one post: -Arabic: yes, obviously he does speak it to arabic speakers and it is fus7a. Whether he also speaker local dialect, I don't know. -Political fatawa: yes, there have been instances of this but they are the exception rather than the norm -Leadership: I don't say that ulama cannot be leaders, some of them do have leadership positions such as Sayyid al Khamenei. However being a jurist does not require leading prayers and giving sermons so one shouldn't automatically assume that every jurist will do so.

If you post a video of yourself, there is a facial recognition that could be used to search other TikTok videos. Who knows if videos that are not you will be retrieved in the search and considered to be you? Stay away from TikTok. Very dangerous.

  33. Salaam, Right. Shiism is for wise people, not for fools. The people who fall in such traps are those who reach to a point of view without going in depth. This is the mindset of a foolish person literally. Rational people, clear headed people, those who use their brains can never fall in these traps and lies. In fact, it will help them in coming closer to faith, to explore their self in Shiism. Even for a born shia it is important to read, study, explore and think. If a Shia doesn't do these things, he will fall back from this holy Caravan. Take the example of the Battle of Si

    Salam, dear sister! "Whomever Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) loves, He drowns him in a sea of sufferings." - Imam as-Sadiq (عليه السلام) Words, I know, are very poor comforters. But remember that it is the darkest hour before the light of dawn. You have displayed extreme fortitude through these trying times, and I am sure Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will reward you for your unwavering tawakkul. In the qada and qadr of Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) there's always a great blessing; only that we know it not. And sufferings, as Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen (عليه السلام) said, are the pu

  38. Yes, barakah is the word. Besides “blessings or grace”, the root meaning of The word “barakah” also means something that is in abundance. Which is exactly what you described as an expansion of time. Now barakah is from heaven. But there is something in us that is already in heaven (namely our ruh). So the source of our barakah is in actualizing the ruh within us. And the ruh is precisely our consciousness. So whatever you bring your conscious attention towards, that is where the barakah will be! Our ruh is expansive, like the open air. But our nafs (attachment to our desires) is i

  39. Following rules helps one develop conscious attention / mindfulness. (This is the purpose of the sacred law). following the rule of “praying on time” helps bring conscious attention to time. whatever anyone brings their conscious attention to is seen for what it is. In your case, because you have brought conscious attention to the passage of time you noticed that time expands and that you tend to do things (like tasks at work) on time that you otherwise wouldn’t have done. But ask yourself “why does this happen?” The answer is simple: That which you are conscious of, you ar

  42. I have an agnostic brother, and at least a couple of atheist friends (one was born in a strict Deobandi household). I have a couple of cousins who are militant atheists. I have tons of non-practicing Muslim friends from all sorts of sects. The reasons for their disbelief are varied, but there is one common factor in all of them. They all started thinking that faraiz were a chore at some point in their life. They all think that avoiding haram actions is a huge PITA.

  43. I am not an atheist, but getting quite close to it... I was born shia Muslim in a practicing family, was fairly practicing myself, but roughly 5 6 years ago I started having many doubts. I do not consider atheism a religion or set of beliefs. My problem is with being forced to believe in the imaginary. I don't ask to be able to see God, I understand He can't be seen. My primary issue is in having to "believe" in everything that falls under the category of unseen "angels, jinn, heaven, hell, barzakh, reality of actions, soul... etc". The China example isn't that bad actually. In reali

  44. Not trying to discourage you, but dreams aren't really something that you can control. They come from your subconscious mind and are usually your brain attempting to process information that you took in during the day, almost always unknowingly. Like this week I've had dream almost every night about walking through New York City... except that it's not the real New York City, it's a fantasy version of it that I have in my head. I think these dreams stem from the fact that I used to want to live in NYC when I was younger because I thought that it was something different than what it really is.

  47. You may mean well but you are sugar-coating and that does not do him or anyone favours. Being a Quranist is not a solution, secondly falsely claiming the Prophet "forbade slavery" (pretty sure you ironically will need to rely on ahadith to even try to make this claim) is disingenuous. And FYI the Qur'an referring to those whom our right hands posess is widely understood to refer to slaves. OP should ideally seek help from a learned person in his community. If not, hopefully someone here can address these points individually.
