  1. Not to mention that a "gay gene" has never been found and probably will never be found, ever; because it doesn't exist. But like I said, I feel bad for gay people because they are being lied to by society with the whole "Born This Way™" nonsense, as well as being told that being gay is a "perfectly OK way to be", so they never try to resist the urges to commit homosexual acts or try to change themselves to be of the normal orientation, the way that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created them to be. Matter of fact, if you suggest that people aren't "Born This Way™" and that there is hope for them to change, you're compared to Hitler and are treated like the worst human being imaginable when really, you just want what's best for that person and what's best for society.

  3. Neither the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) departed the world without nominating his successor nor Imam Ali (عليه السلام) عن على بن ابراهيم عن أبيه عن حماد بن عيسى عن ابراهيم بن عمر اليماني عن سليم بن قيس الهلالي قال شهدت أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام حين أوصى إلى ابنه الحسن وأشهد على وصيته الحسين ومحمدا وجميع ولده ورؤساء شيعته وأهل بيته ثم دفع إليه الكتاب والسلاح وقال له يا بنى أمرنى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم أن أوصى اليك وأدفع اليك كتبي وسلاحي كما أوصى إلي ودفع إلي كتبه وسلاحه وأمرني أن آمرك إذا حضرك الموت أن تدفعها إلى أخيك الحسين ثم أقبل على الحسين عليه السلام فقال وأمرك رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم أن تدفعها إلى ابنك هذا ثم أخذ بيد على بن الحسين وقال وأمرك رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم أن تدفعها إلى ابنك محمد فاقرأه من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ومنى السلام And there are other reports too: وعنه عن عدة من أصحابه يرفعه إلى أبي الجارود عن أبي جعفر قال إن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام لما حضرته الوفاة قال لابنه الحسن أدن منى حتى أسر اليك ما أسر إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم وأئتمنك على ما ائتمننى عليه ففعل Also this: وباسناده يرفعه إلى شهر بن حوشب ان عليا عليه السلام لما سار إلى الكوفة استودع أم سلمة رضى الله عنها كتبه والوصية فلما رجع الحسن عليه السلام دفعتها إليه وقد ثبت عند فرق الإسلام كافة ان عليا عليه السلام لما مات دعا الحسن عليه السلام إلى الأمر بعد أبيه فبايعه الناس على انه الخليفة والامام And also there is a famous khutbah of Imam Hassan (عليه السلام) himself and what is said by Ibn Abbas: فقد روى جماعة من أهل التاريخ أنّ الإمام الحسن (عليه السّلام) خطب صبيحة الليلة التي قبض فيها أمير المؤمنين (عليه السّلام) , فحمد الله وأثنى عليه , وصلّى على النبي محمّد (صلّى الله عليه وآله) , ثمّ قال : (( لقد قُبض في هذه الليلة رجل لم يسبقه الأولون ولا يدركه الآخرون , لقد كان يجاهد مع رسول الله (صلّى الله عليه وآله) فيقيه بنفسه , وكان رسول الله (صلّى الله عليه وآله) يوجّهه برايته فيكتنفه جبرئيل عن يمينه , وميكائيل عن شماله , فلا يرجع حتّى يفتح الله تعالى على يديه . ولقد توفي (عليه السّلام) في هذه الليلة التي عرج فيها عيسى بن مريم , وفيها قُبض يوشع بن نون , وما خلّف صفراء ولا بيضاء إلاّ سبعمئة درهم فضلت من عطائه , أراد أن يبتاع بها خادماً لأهله )) . ثمّ خنقته العبرة , فبكى وبكى الناس معه , ثم قال : (( أنا ابن البشير , أنا ابن النذير , أنا ابن الداعي إلى الله بإذنه , أنا ابن السراج المنير , أنا ابن من أذهب الله عنهم الرجس وطهّرهم تطهيراً , أنا من أهل بيت افترض الله تعالى مودتهم في كتابه فقال : (قُلْ لاَ أَسْأَلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْراً إِلاَّ الْمَوَدَّةَ فِي الْقُرْبَى وَمَنْ يَقْتَرِفْ حَسَنَةً نَزِدْ لَهُ فِيهَا حُسْناً) . فالحسنة مودّتنا أهل البيت )) . ثم جلس , فقام عبد الله بن العباس بين يديه وقال : يا معاشر الناس , هذا ابن نبيكم , ووصي إمامكم فبايعوه . فتبادر الناس إلى البيعة له بالخلافة .

    They're might few videos but that's all just act. They're acting and don't really mean it. Otherwise why would take down the flags of Ahl-bayet, Why would they starting forcing girls into marriage. They're savage thugs animals wild dogs and hyenas. I have to reduce how much I listen to the news because I find it very hard to take, plus what the coward leaders did to the county. Funnily, the tax payers where these cowards live, will have to pay for their cost of living. The countries the hold Ghani or Hamid Kharazi, must be stupid or what??? you holding these country cowards in your country, paying for the cost and what you getting out of them, seriously, they got nothing better else to do with their money.

  8. Assalam Alaykum everyone! Now before I begin, it is very important that I need to state this and for the reader to keep this mind while reading the below: Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has created the human being and everything attached to that human being such as sexual desires, intellect, etc. Thus, what I want you the reader to realize is that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created the intellect for a reason and that we must use it as he says this in the Quran, think and not follow blindly what our forefathers follow. Points: 1) The Prophet had always appointed a successor behind him EVEN when he left his own house (agreed by Sunnis), how in the world could he leave the WORLD without appointing a successor??? Use your intellect. 2) If the Prophet left the leadership for people to decide (election as Sunnis believe), why was there no election committee? And the funny thing is the people didn’t even decide, it was just a few who were with Abu Bakr and Omar at Saqifah who decided (agreed by Sunnis) the greater people had no say in it whatsoever. Use your intellect. 3) Not a single prophet or messenger out of the 124,000 had a successor who was chosen by people or had an election, you will find all of those successors were chosen by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), which is what the Shia believe for the final Prophet as well. Use your intellect. 4) Lets say we were to imagine the prophet left the leadership for an election, why was there no election for Omar’s Caliphate? Abu Bakr literally handed the Caliphate to Omar, his best friend, not a single person had a say in it. Sunnis believe this too, it’s funny because if a Christian were to look at their “election system” they would burst out laughing. A similar thing happened for Uthman’s Caliphate as well, anyways, please use your intellect. 5) Why did Khalid bin Walid who is praised by Sunnis as the commander of Abu Bakrs army, murder Malik bin Nuwayrah and sleep with his wife in the same night when he refused to pay zakat to Abu Bakrs caliphate and said he would only pay it to Ali bin Abu Talib? This scenario is in Sunni books and tafasur. Can give reference if someone ask. Jazakullah, There are tons of other points which I have researched but I wanted to give some for the people who may have a weak Shia foundation or those who are hesitant to convert to Shia Islam. The Prophet said in a hadeeth: This religion will be split into 73 sects, all will go to Jahannam, and 1 will go to Jannah. I myself swear to you by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), this sect is the sect which had remained loyal to the Prophets successor after his death, this man is called Ali ibn Abi Talib. Man kunto mawla, fa hatha Aliyyun mawla. ”Who ever I am his leader, Ali is also his leader!” Wassalam.

    Is marriage wajib?

    I'm 30 yrs old and single. I wanted to know is marriage wajib? Because I don't wish to get married anymore for so many reasons, I can literally give a lecture or write essays on why I don't want to and why it wouldn't/can't happen. I just want to make sure I won't be punished for it.

  10. Assalam Alaykum followers of Ali! I was wondering if anyone would care to provide their input if I should continue to memorize the full Quran or just the important ones which are mentioned in hadeeth? I have memorized Surah 80 to 114 thus far, and I feel that it is kind of useless since I am just memorizing them without understanding the context. Should I continue to memorize the Quran like this or should I read the tafasir (Tabatabai) along with it? If so, my next goal would be Surah 70 to 80 (starting backwards). Anyhow, please let me know what everyone thinks? Need some advice! Wassalam :)

  11. Start from.the basics. Go step by step Find a book on fundamentals and go through the evidence. Then build from there. You are lucky as 12er have a huge online English Library. I recommend theological instructions by Ayatollah Yazdi. You can find it on al-islam.org I'm Zaidi so trying to find books is very difficult.

  14. Actually I don't have too. We are in agreement about the Imamah of Ali(عليه السلام), Hasan (عليه السلام) and Hussain (عليه السلام). All other Imams are not pertinent to the debate at this time. You made this a debate instead of a discussion. You made a very broad statement that "12ers do not follow the Ahlul-Bayt". I interpret this as 12ers do not follow a single ruling/edict/recommendation from any member of the Ahlu-Bayt including the Imams. Given that we've agreed upon Ali(عليه السلام), Hasan (عليه السلام) and Hussain (عليه السلام) as Imams, all I have to do is prove that I follow just 1 edict from any one of them and this debate is over. Conversely, you have to prove from ALL their rulings/edicts/recommendations that 12ers don't follow any of them. Here I go. Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) asked shias to remember him when drinking water. I always say YA HUSSAIN after drinking water. Therefore I follow Imam Hussain. Debate over?

  15. I don't think there is a need to discuss the subject of infallibility after the video shared by @Zaidism. Kamal Hyderi has mentioned the nass in that video. Let me quote the same along with another hadith from Imam Ali (عليه السلام): حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عبد الرحمن المقري، قال: حدثنا أبو عمرو محمد بن جعفر المقري الجرجاني، قال،: حدثنا أبو بكر محمد بن الحسن الموصلي ببغداد، قال: حدثنا محمد ابن عاصم الطريفي، قال: حدثنا عباس بن يزيد بن الحسن الكحال مولى زيد بن علي، قال: حدثني أبي، قال: حدثني موسى بن جعفر، عن أبيه جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه محمد بن علي، عن أبيه علي بن الحسين عليهم السلام، قال: الامام منا لا يكون إلا معصوما وليست العصمة في ظاهر الخلقة فيعرف بها ولذلك لا يكون إلا منصوصا. فقيل له: يا ابن رسول الله فما معنى المعصوم؟ فقال: هو المعتصم بحبل الله (2)، وحبل الله هو القرآن لا يفترقان إلى يوم القيامة، والامام يهدي إلى القرآن والقرآن يهدي إلى الامام، وذلك قول الله عز وجل: " إن هذا القرآن يهدي للتي هي أقوم http://shiaonlinelibrary.com/الكتب/1148_معاني-الأخبار-الشيخ-الصدوق/الصفحة_226 The bolded part: He (Imam Ali bin Hussain (عليه السلام)) said: The Imam of us is only infallible. علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن إبراهيم بن عمر اليماني، عن سليم بن قيس الهلالي، عن أمير المؤمنين صلوات الله عليه قال: إن الله تبارك وتعالى طهرنا وعصمنا وجعلنا شهداء على خلقه، وحجته في أرضه، و جعلنا مع القرآن وجعل القرآن معنا، لا نفارقه ولا يفارقنا http://shiaonlinelibrary.com/الكتب/1122_الكافي-الشيخ-الكليني-ج-١/الصفحة_239 The bolded part: God, Blessed and Exalted be He, has purified and protected us, and made us witnesses to His creation, and His proof in His land, and made us with the Qur’an, and made the Qur’an with us, we do not separate from Him nor separate from us. Now back to topic please.

  16. Salam, I kind of used the wrong wording to describe what I was trying to say. What I mean to say is that I have heard there are surahs which the prophet said are to be recited before sleep those ones, ayatul kursi, the verses of ahlulbayt, the verse of imam alis zakat (ring in sujood). Anyhow, thank yall for the advice, I will go ahead doing so. And by the way, would anyone know how to get my hands on the English version of the Quran Tafsir by Allamah Hussein Tabatabai? Thanks!

  17. Brother vi answered this before. There isn't There is no Nas or Ismah for Imam Zaid. This is not our claim. You claim Nas and Ismah for all 12 of your Imams Please bring a hadith with multiple complete chains for this point which is aqeeda for you.

  18. Great thread. My view Sunni should admit that there is plenty of evidence for the succession of Imam Ali 12er should admit the level of evidence of 12 infallible appointed Imams doesn't reach a level to base aqeeda on. Once you both agree we can all unite under a Zaidi Imam and make a stand against the kuffar.

  19. This is what most young adults don't understand about 'Obedience to Parents' in Islam. 'Obedience to Parents' is only an absolute (wajib) when what they are telling you is the same as what the clear guidance of the religion is telling you. For example, if your parents tell you not to drink alcohol, it is wajib for you not to do it. It is wajib for you not to do it even if your parents didn't tell you. When it comes to your parents telling you things that are against the clear guidance and teachings of Islam, it is wajib to disobey them. For example if they tell you not to pray or they tell a girl or young lady not to wear hijab. If they tell you something that is not in either one of these categories, i.e. it is not haram or wajib, then you have a choice, but you should obey your parents out of precaution, if it is possible for you to do that and it doesn't affect your life in a negative way. This is 'respect' for parents, which is something Islam very much encourages. When it comes to marriage, if not being married is causing you to go toward haram, commit haram, or causing negative consequences in your life, then you should try your best to get married, despite what your parents tell you. That is because you will have to live with the consequences of your sins or the negative consequences that are happening to you as a result of not being married, and your parents won't. If you are not going toward haram and not having any negative consequences in your life as a result of not being married, then you should respect the wishes of your parents. At the same time, you should talk to them and try to convince them on the merits of you getting married, then maybe they will change their mind.

  21. Wa alaikum as salam If have a religious community/center nearby then sometimes there are people there who arrange events or meetings between people looking to get married. You can also discuss it with the sheikh, if there is one. Otherwise there are online platforms available for the same purpose. Once you find someone you're interested in your parents will hopefully understand that you are serious about getting married.

  22. Btw it's an established fact. Otherwise all identical twins would share sexuality. There are very few phenotypes that rely on a single gene and they are very simple physical traits. Once you bring multiple genes into the equation and non physical behaviour you can not say it's purely genetic. And like I previously stated even genes can be switched on and off from environmental factors It's like a mountain of evidence out there. Compare it to this example people who says surgery changes your sex. It doesn't unless we can alter a person DNA and reverse all the effects of what that original DNA dictated. In this case it scientific impossible. But it maybe possible one day. So we can entertain a future possibility. But even then it's not the current reality. . Homosexuality is clear cut. You are not Bron gay ! Don't entertain nonsense.

  26. My point exactly, the soul surely is neither masculine or feminine, which creates a much more complicated debate about this all, ultimately we must observe the law of Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) but let's realise there are 'some' that have homosexual feelings and they are suffering,, it's not like those people who just want to experiment etc.. no time for that from an Islamic perspective... but let's at least appreciate this is something beyond a simple born gay or straight debate.... Surah Nur verse 31 is to be pondered over..... [24.31] And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! so that you may be successful. Also look into the fact that Ulema allow open discussions about gender and even approve some sex changes.... Certainly don't have the answers but know for sure that I now think differently rather than my original very harsh anti gay attitude I grew up with.....

  28. As for gay legal marriage, I think it's none of the secular government's business who is married to who. Marriage in general should not be regulated, so long as it's non-coercive and between consenting adults. If my husband wants to take four wives or if my lesbian neighbor wants to marry her girlfriend, why is that any concern of a secular government? It's clearly forbidden for Muslims to engage in homosexual acts.

  31. Homosexuality is en vogue in America. You can't turn on the television without seeing some trash program that glorifies the homosexual lifestyle as "fashionable" or "trendy". The media is doing it's best to convince normal Americans that the majority of people are some manner of LGBTQ+ and this simply isn't the case. Homosexuality and other "queer" lifestyles are a learned behavior and are socialized into children, it isn't something that arises naturally. Because the media is promoting "queer" lifestyles, you have more kids in America that think that they have to behave this way in order to be fashionable and "cool" in the culture, and it's having a disastrous result on the public morals of American society (not that American public morality was ever great. America is a nation built upon avarice and covetousness)

  37. I guess there will always be such debates as long as there are ahadith which at the same time command us to do some active tabarra and enjoin us to pray in the same mosques. Some will argue that tabarra is a principle while praying with Sunnis is not, I will say that prayer is above tabarra in order of principles, so the preference goes to prayer and how to stick to proper prayer ethics. Funny thing is you mentioned just earlier how several of your acquaintances ignored the zulm of their own figures, then what seems so awful to you to be united with them in a spiritual sense - be it ecumenical and not madhabi?

  38. It's a bit more than that. Please look at the Backfire video again: Islamic Pulse - British Shiaism II | The Lady Of Heaven | BACKFIRE | Facebook Also, why constantly start up fitna, casually associating Sunnis with Daesh in nearly every lecture (There's literally a clip in 15:46 where SAN does this very CLEARLY. )? It's not just opinion, it's goal is to cause fitna that serves the US. SAN is associated with UMMA, and organization that had Paul Wolfowitz, the architect of the Iraq War, was a keynote speaker in their first event. They are not agents, they act in their own accord with different intentions, but these intentions align with the US.

  39. It's all political. I don't have an issue with people of any community disagreeing about this and that, but their are clear connections between SAN (and others) with US and British elites, which he even acknowledge meeting up with former US Secretary of State John Kerry. After seeing that, it's hard to not see his anti-Islamic unity rhetoric as not just a personal opinion, but an attempt to cause fitna for the purposes of preserving US oppression on Muslim lands that we all live in. Be aware.

One day he speaks to a certain audience he sings to their liking, the next day he sings another tune. The guys track record isn't exactly very good, considering his numerous mistakes both academically and approach. He is charismatic which is why people are attracted to him.

  42. I think he did a great job with his series on Prophet and Aimmah in the past. My objections about him are related to his stance over the last, say 5 years. A point to consider, if you look at YouTube which is his chosen platform, is the reach of his speeches through 'regular' months, compared with that of Muharram - meaning in thousands of views. We are talking of triple to quadruple in Muharram. So it is obviously a criterion of how he chooses the themes of his lectures. Actually sister, I remember him more for his lectures on Wilayat al faqih and Tatbir, where he explained in a respectful way that Iran didn't have the monopoly on shias. It is his most basic right, but in the current context, I cannot believe this doesn't show an will to oppose some of his fellow shias, for some reason. Hence me thinking he is not that pro unity with Shias himself. And as far as I am aware, it was not 'Iranians shias' that took the first shots at him, I think he had big respect from the whole Shia World until he took some particular trajectory. I never implied that. My point is that it is not what they need to hear in priority. My priority in Islam is not learning about zulm, it's about how to overcome it. If I am focused on the act of zulm, I'd rather watch Netflix documentaries on criminology and serial killers.

  45. What is actually haram are the acts of homosexuality. There are some desires which can be fulfilled in a halal manner and others which can't. Homosexual acts are among those that cannot be fulfilled (in the same way as desiring whisky, pork, marriage with an idolator etc) If someone happens to desire someone of their own gender, or happens to crave pork, this in itself is not punishable. However, fulfilling these forbidden desires is punishable.

  48. I think some of us are neglecting the dangerous and detrimental characteristics of the Shirazi movement/British Shia (whatever its name is). I am going to list some of these dangerous behaviors and characteristics: 1. They are using Ahlulbayt against Ahlulbayt: While it’s clear that Imam Ali corporated with Caliphs, while we know in many cases he helped and even defended them, while we know our Imams asked us to respect Sunnis, pray along with their tribe, visit their sick people, attend their funerals, so on and so forth (Read the contents in this link to see how wide the extent of Islamic Unity is), we are seeing people in this movement saying: ” there is no unity between us and the followers of X and Y who oppressed Ahlulbayt”, “Unity with Sunnis is a political scam”, “Unity doesn’t make sense, unless they follow the path of Ahlulbayt” etc. Clearly these are against what Ahlulbayt did and what Ahlulbayt want us to do. The same can be said about their behaviors regarding disrespecting Sunnis’ respected symbols. Yes, we too know what they did to Ahlulbayt. We too know who deserves to be cursed. But... 2. They have a habit of creating controversy over differences: Differences between scholars are natural. Scholars have various differences over several issues and or individuals – Irfan, tatbir, Rumi, Wahdat Wojoud, Ibn Arabi, fiqhi issues etc. But you rarely see them making a big deal out of it or make takfir on others. However, you see people in this movement making differences political and even make takfir on other scholars – which comes from their takfiri ideology. They even don’t call Iran, Islamic Republic, but Republic of Iran. This is ridiculous. 3. They are castrating Shia and making it safe to the oppressors: While we are asked to be “اشدا علی الکفار” and “للظالم خصم”, oppressors don’t regard this movement as a danger to them. Shia is identified with its special characteristics in fighting tawaghit and oppressors. Emerging a group among us that is acting against these characteristics is there to distort this identity. This is one example, out of many (it's about Shirazis' hussayniah in London): It’s not just that. Not only are they benign toward our enemies, but also: 4. They are regarded as hope for enemies to pursue their goals: Fit for enemy's agenda... Maybe now we can know where these so many media tool they have come from, can't we? We are also seeing them doing what enemies seek in regard to Ummah unity -- a good tool for enemies to add fuel the fire of differences among us and Sunnis. 5. They, willingly or unwillingly, are endangering the lives of Shias: For some Sunnis, being a Shia is a crime -- an unforgivable crime which allows them to kill you. That’s why we are being killed since the very beginning just for being Shia. But there is an important “but” here. For many other Sunnis, being a Shia alone is not considered a crime, but if you disrespect their holy figures then yes, you must be killed. I translate remarks by head of a terrorist group in Eastern Iran, named Abdul-Malik Rigi (more than 150 Iranian citizen were killed and more than 300 were injured by this group – let’s not talk about how he was being supported by the US and how he was arrested): Also we should not forget when Daeshis were killing Shias in Speicher mass killing, they were shouting “ثار لام المومنین عایشه (blood/revenge for mother of believers Aisha)” “ثار لام المومنین عایشه” is a natural respond to “عایشه فی النار’’. Do those who are promoting the ceremonies where these things are being said know the consequences of their activity? Does Sadiq Shirazi know this? Do his sons know this? Do his followers know this? If only you knew Persian: http://www.ansarclip.ir/video/6582/مستندی-گویا-از-نقش-شیعه-انگلیسی-در-کشتار-شیعیان/ Add to the list how they are playing with the marjaiaiah position (remember they even advertised for their marja on this very site, does a marja need to be advertised in this way), the picture of Shia they are presenting and … Although many other things left to be said about this movement (maybe in another time), its goal, its agenda and its activity, aren’t these things enough for all of us to see this movement as a danger to Islam and Shia?
