  1. Salam brother, This does happen be it a woman or a man. I think there are many reasons why this can happen. The root of all this does go back to not being rooted in tawhid. Once we stray away from our fitrah and don't understand who we are we will start acting unnatural and unfaithful. When someone is obedient and submissive to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) then that translates to all other aspects naturally. Aside from the fundamental which I just mentioned above, I also feel that when we marry the wrong spouse who we have no emotional, spiritual and physical connection to then these problems arise. That's why it's important to marry the right person so we are fully committed to them and can be faithful to them. Even with the right person it does require a lot of work - refining of the soul and constantly growing in nearness to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). But the root of all problems is straying away from tawhid. Someone who truly believes in God and has that deep connection would never engage in unfaithful behaviour.

  5. This is about how FTX (crypto) raised funds ... or one method anyway. Those not familiar ... FTX is a crypto-currency business started by a young man [Sam Bankman-Fried] in his thirties which has lost investors billions. Sounds cool huh ... https://www.ft.com/content/67b1899f-4b1f-4676-b264-0d19e205d64e So what does Bravo do? Obviously he looks into this investment opportunity and sinks money into it. This is how a law professor asks for money! He does not ask for it. He simply opens the door by asking for something as innocent as advice ... and he makes door opening even easier by saying that he (his son) wants to give money. Once the door is open ... he lets human greed take its course. Genius. And when the investment blows up as it did, the father loses no reputation at all ... he never 'sold' the investment, the investor came to him ...

  8. Some women and men cheat for the thrill of it, but most, it is due to something missing in their relationship with their spouse. A better approach to something missing would be to communicate with the spouse and try to resolve the problem. Really, infidelity is inexcusable under any circumstance, but it's not difficult to be a little understanding. We are raised to be nonconfrontational, so looking for the missing thing elsewhere seems more accessible than dealing with the issue. It won't work though - even if a person starts a new relationship, there is going to be some conflict eventually and the cycle would begin again.

  9. JazakAllahu khayran for your reply akhi. I personally think that this is because of their alleged beliefs were mostly explained by their opponents, which they actually used as arguments against them and since most Alawi hid their beliefs due to fear of persecution this has lead to using works by their opponents as a source of their beliefs.

  10. Slam this is a great lie & insulting to whole of Iranians which you accuse iran to these things even without having a single proof about it which according to Shia Islam accusing another muslim to any evil deed without having any proof is a great sin which now you have insulted whole of muslims in Iran without having proof about your baseles & hateful post . This is just your claim which Iran has not done anything for it's profit in producing of vaccines for fighting with covid-19 so therefore you can't put Iran to this category . He has done it because he has trust in knowledge of Iranian scientists & for supporting domestic products for helping people of iran so consequently rest of oppressed people of world which clearly he firmly stood against high pressure of American & zionist pharmaceutical companies about forcing Iran to buy their vaccines & products wich Barakat organization is a Public Stock Pharmaceutical group which shreholdrs of it are people of Iran. https://pharmacy.tums.ac.ir/fa/ngo/7 https://setad.ir/service/tadbir-group/گروه دارویی برکت https://bpharmed.com/منشور-اخلاقی/

Wallah I love Iran https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2022/06/27/684619/Iran-respond-Israeli-interventionist-move-Middle-East-region Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri has warned of Israel’s interventionist moves, saying the Islamic Republic will give a befitting response to any act of Israeli intervention in the Middle East. Baqeri made the remarks in a meeting with his Pakistani counterpart General Nadim Reza Nishan in Tehran on Monday. The top Iranian commander stated that Israel is at the core of all intrusions and destabilizing moves in the region, adding that “The regime, through the implementation of certain plots, seeks to forge relations with regional countries and achieve its interventionist goals.” ... “We (Iran) do not tolerate these threats and we will certainly respond to them,” Baqeri said.

  12. Salaman alaykum. My name is Sayeed Abdullah Almusawi. Raised in Australia, I began my studies in the Islamic Seminary of Qom in the field of Quran and Hadith 10 years ago. Furthermore, I have been engaged in Islamic educational and cultural activities for the past 20 years. Today I am working with a young and devoted team of Shi’a brothers and sisters from all over the world on an online educational platform called Islam4U. The objective of this project is to fill the void that exists in the Islamic educational platforms with an informative and up-to-date medium that can spread the values and teachings of the Quran and Ahlulbayt to truth seekers, especially the youth, all over the world. Throughout the past 3 years of our activities, we have been able to produce and launch over 10 courses in fields of: - Ahkam - Akhlaq - Tafseer - Family in the Quran - Marriage in the Quran - Child Raising in the Quran - Fundamentals to Quran Recitation - Tajweed - And more to come Furthermore, we have launched an entertaining and highly educational Quran application for kids which helps them learn and memorize short chapters from the Holy Book. Additionally, children can learn life skills, tafseer, and stories related to the revelation of surahs and verses through fun scenarios and creative arts and crafts. For more information regarding our content, you can go to our website: islam4u.pro and Qurankids.co Our goal is to be able to make our content accessible to anyone who is interested in learning the teachings of the Quran and the Pure Household in the convenience of their own home without any expenses. However, such an objective needs the support and aid of our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters to make their communties aware of these services. We ask you kindly to forward these links to your community through your social media platforms. www.islam4u.pro www.qurankids.co https://www.youtube.com/c/Islam4upro Sincerely Sayyid Abdullah Almusawi Contact info: WhatsApp: 0490144974 Email: a.almusawi1214@gmail.com

  13. Could you please explain the essence of infallibility? I personally believe only God is infallible. first stage is actually a response to the question: 'Can a human being who is the vicegerent of God prevail over the materialistic dimension [of his/her being] and live a life of virtue, purity, and infallibility?' Hence, infallibility here means that a human being, whilst having an animalistic instinct which can be the breeding place for oppression and evil, becomes absorbed in his/her inclination to divinity to the extent that through [actions chosen with] freewill he/she begins to reflect the characteristics and moral etiquettes of the angels. It is also worth mentioning that the Prophets and Imāms, due to their roles as dissimulators of Gods message, apart from possessing this type of infallibility, also enjoyed greater God given immunity as a guarantee and protection for the divine message [that they had to deliver for the people]. Nonetheless, these great personalities, more than others, perceive themselves to be flawed and blemished in front of God to the extent that they do not imagine themselves needless of God even for less than a second. https://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/fa21359

  14. Salam this is a fake story by too weak documentation which in rela story prophet muhammad (pub) after finishing of battle of Hunayn has given more share of booty of war to new muslims likewise Abusufyan too keep them between muslims because Abusufyan & noblemen of Quraysh and Arabs have been greedy for booty of war which giving more share of it has been for softening their heart "لْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ" about Islam. The shares of the booties When the Prophet (s) was allotting the booties of the battle, he first gave the noblemen of Quraysh and the tribes of Arab their shares in order to make them more inclined to Islam. He then gave 100 camels to some people, such as Abu Sufyan b. Harb, and gave 40 or 50 to some others. He then had people and booties counted, giving each person a certain share of the booties. When the Prophet (s) gave a remarkable share to the noblemen of Quraysh and Arabs, some people from Ansar objected to him. The Prophet (s) gave a speech to them, convincing them about his decision, and praying for them.[45] https://en.wikishia.net/view/Battle_of_Hunayn Dividing booty of between women It should be said that this hadith, in addition to the weakness of the document, also has textual anxiety. Some reports have considered the birth of Sahlah in the battle of Khyber and others in the battle of Hunain. If Sahlah was born in the war of Hunain, then the hadith can be considered as the softening of the hearts. http://hadith.net/post/54230/سهم-زنان-از-غنيمت-جنگ/ It is here that the ulterior motives of the biased orientalists become evident, because they describe the battles of Islam as plundering, but shut their eyes from their spiritual aims, as this type of discipline cannot be expected from a plundering group. It is not possible for the leader of a plundering community to treat honesty as the sign of faith and to train his soldiers in such a manner that he should be able to restrain them from taking even a shoe-lace from the public property. https://www.al-islam.org/message-jafar-subhani/chapter-43-fort-khayber-centre-danger#war-booty-divided

  18. Salam according to some sunnis likewise Wahbists & Salafists prophet wanted to commit suicide or he has bewitched in degree that he has lost his mind which these examples shows that Sunni definition from prophet is wrong which his personality has been misinterpreted by Sunnis in similar fashion your story about hs mistake in dividing the spoils of war is just an accusation by his enemies which if you believe to it so then you believe that prophet has been unjust so there he has not qualification for being a prophet which if anyone believes that prophet has been unjust so then is put of fold of Islam in similar fashion your belief about commiting mistakes by other prophets is not acceptable so therefore we don't accept making mistake about prophet Muhammad (pbu) & other prophets brcause it's an acusation aagaainst them about being unjust .

  20. Sheikh imran husein says that the enemies of islam and enemies of Iran saw an opportunity and made it their full-time mission, by taking advantage of Amini's death in order to destabilise the country, bring about its destruction, and install a secular government in its stead. Nobody has any regard to her death. It's all about taking advantage of her death. And, yeah, I agree with him. Furthermore, none of these influencers or other commoners who are only interested in getting likes and approval have the slightest regard for women. Iran is not the only country that would benefit from their assistance if they cared about women, there are tons of other countries that really could benefit from their support, but nah. And if they are so adamant about helping the Iranian ladies, then help them by opening your doors to them rather than destroying another nation and imposing your laws on it.

    So what are you proposing. Anyone who considers themself a 'healer' can supervise the treatment ? We have to look at the goal here. If someone has PTSD, for example, their goal is to get rid of the PTSD, which is affecting their life. In order to make a proper diagnosis (i.e. that this person actually has PTSD and not something else that seems to them like PTSD) and to come up with a proper course of treatment that is recognized by the medical community and general society as being effective and efficient, and to follow thru with that course of treatment until it is finished and specific goals and benchmarks are achieved, this requires someone who is 'highly qualified' in this area since we agree now that a person cannot do this on their own. In most cases, this is what the person themselves would want, a highly qualified profession, if their goal is to get rid of this problem or issue they are having. If their goal is something else, i.e. just to 'have fun', 'play around', 'get high', etc, then this is haram and those substances cannot be used for this purpose.

  26. Salaam, i hate to admit it, but i have the same questions which is why i want to know if they have a VAERS system there, cuz MAYBE the vx developed in-country is different than the ones developed outside of the country and have less adverse reactions. I know alot of iranians chose sputnik(russian), and ithers chose baraka(iranian) but id still like to know what their Vaccine Adverse Reactions reports and numbers are. I personally have no issue w Ayatullah Khamenei getting the vx on camera, id be more interested in knowing if it was Baraka or something else. If he got baraka made in-country, and the whole point of the vx in general was to supposedly protect the population from death/serious illness, etc, then i see no problem.

  27. @Hasani Samnani Given your position on the vaccination programme and your status as MD (if im not mistaken), I'm curious to hear what you have to say. Here you have Ayatullah Ali Khamanei get the vaccine on television, do you believe this was a wise move? Does this move from the Ayatullah resemble the teachings of Ahlul Bayt? I personally didn't believe in the "covid narrative" and I didn't believe in the "covid vaccination programme," both of which many people, including scientists, biologists, immunologists, doctors, etc., are now questioning. So ask yourself, why in the world would ayatullah khamanei take the shot on television, buy the covid narrative, and together with his officials initiate a mass vaccination programme in iran as well? Why would he expose his own people to something we know so little about and that has barely been tested at all. This seems more like widespread indoctrination. and all of this under the influence of who? that is a really great question.

  29. It doesn't matter anyway, as the narration says "المكيدة في الحرب" and not something like "اذا تكون في حرب". So Iran doesn't need to be directly involved in the war for lying to be Islamically allowed. Plus, the 7adeeth says that lying is good while plotting for war - "يحسن". Just because Iran isn't directly involved, doesn't automatically make denying 7aram.

  31. You do realise that...lying is Islamically allowed in times of war.....right? And Sayyed Abdul Husayn Dastghaib Shirazi writes in his book Greater Sins - Volume 2: Iran - like usual - did nothing wrong. Rather, it is a part of the teachings of Ahlulbayt (A) that lying is acceptable in times of war. Like I mentioned in the above post, most of the targets that Russia is firing at have Ukrainian weapons and soldiers in them. (That's according to Amnesty International - Western). With the targets that didn't - casualties were minimal. And this is also acceptable because according to Islamic law, a greater harm can be reduced by a lesser harm. From the website of Ayatollah al-Sistani (Q), I don't know what you're on about, but there's nothing wrong with this situation according to our religion.

  35. I am surprised to see as to why Sunni's asking about the necessity of Imamah from us while their own books contain Sahih ahadith like these: 1- رواه مسلم في صحيحه كتاب الإمارة ج6 ص 22 : " من مات وليس في عنقه بيعة مات ميتة جاهلية ". 2- في مسند أحمد ج4 ص 96 : " من مات بغير إمام مات ميتة جاهلية ". 3- في كتاب السنة لابن أبي عاصم ص 489 : " من مات وليس عليه إمام مات ميتة جاهلية ". So whatever they want to destroy with their "5 seconds of thinking with brain" is nothing but their own intelligence. That is ridiculous indeed!!

  38. Like I said previously, Russia does have legitimate security concerns. NATO is aggressively trying to dominate countries surrounding Russia with an eye to surround them and either 1) takeover Russia (maybe not militarily but economically and politically) or 2) make them into a nothing state, i.e. a third world country by limiting their influence and various other means they use to isolate them, like they are doing now with Iran. At the same time, to use that as a justification to invade a country militarily, with all the chaos and destruction that will cause, not just to Ukraine, but to the region, is foolish and will have side effects that noone can forsee. For example, I'm pretty sure Putin didn't expect that the Ukrainian military would put up such a stiff resistance, and that world opinion would swing so far the other way (i.e. against Russia). I don't think the economic sanctions will effect Russia as much as people think, because economic sanctions can be bypassed, but the swinging of world opinion against Russia I think is more damaging. This will have long term effects on the Russian people. As far as unintended consequences, it was the 1982 invasion of Lebanon that gave birth to Hzb. Before 1982, there were groups fighting Israel using asymmetric warfare (like the PLO), but these groups were not very strong or effective. By going in to 'get rid of the PLO', (kind of like what Putin is saying now, he went into Ukraine to 'get rid of the Nazis'), they created a group that was much stronger and much more powerful than what they were trying to destroy (offically anyway), and this is what happened. So these types of operations usually don't turn out the way the force doing 'military operations' expects it to.

  40. The only requirement for being a 313 is a Word from Allah where he says "Be" and it "Is". And that's easy for Him. Your question about previous pious people who prayed to be among the Mahdi is a good one. For me personally I believe from my own opinion and from my interpretation from hadiths that I read on the topic the following: - If we "wait" for it, which is basically asking to be there, then if one dies or is killed before it happens, then Allah will bring you back to be among them in the end. This is in line with the concept of Rajaa, or 'Return' of certain individuals who wished the same, such as people I heard of including Sayid Khidr and the Fellowship of the Cave. There is talk about many more known personalities to come back, because that is probably what they explicitly asked for. - As for myself I have little doubt that should I die, or be martyred before the zuhur, then I will be brought back in sha Allah. - Your thoughts about the reality of sacrifice that we have to be willing to make is very correct. Just like the Imam Hussain was willing to give everything up for the cause, the people of 313 have to be willing and ready to do the same. And if they are not in that state of mind yet, then they can pray for it, then it will be granted to them. This I guarantee, because this is a promise from Allah in the Quran and from all the messengers of God. Make dua and He will grant it to you. In sha Allah

    This is "General Politics" section, and doing takfir is counterproductive i believe. It would be interesting to discuss this (and hopefully prove it wrong) in a religious section of this Forum. Especially after finding out that it has not been discussed as much as one would expect. As for Hitler, yes he has done a lot of great things, and for me what interests me most is exactly how he did it with the financial system. It is interesting for me because i always wondered how the 313 will end up solving the financial problem and aligning it with the Islamic principles. Here in an example of a man who is working on it as well: http://townshiptimes.co.za/how-a-peoples-bank-solves-all-our-problems/ Also all the other good things he did would be interesting to discuss, so we may learn.

    can you back up your claims? A three minute search led me to Hitler's religious views on Wikipedia, and there he quotes apparently: The two Christian denominations look on with indifference at the profanation and destruction of a noble and unique creature who was given to the world as a gift of God's grace. For the future of the world, however, it does not matter which of the two triumphs over the other, the Catholic or the Protestant. But it does matter whether Aryan humanity survives or perishes. — Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf It seems that he did believe in a God, but had his differences with mainstream religious thought. For instance it is said that he believed that Christianity was corrupted by Paul earlier on. In addition most know about the intimate relationship Hitler had with the Catholic church and pope at the time, and not only the Islamic religious authority of Quds (an Arab). The church seemed to be behind him, and he did act like a Christian In this video where the famous Gott Mit uns - "God with us" phrase is emphasised, Hitler also talks about how they receive their commandment from " the God who has created our people" . Additionally a man who has the cross all over the place including himself can not be technically called a kafir of Christian religion for instance, just like Christian traditional Iron Cross medals of honour. notice the cross he looks like ahlul kitab. Hitler apparently saw that Jesus was working against usury of Jews and wanted to continue this work. Therefore, it is of no surprise that many saw Hitler as the defender of Christianity against Jewish run Bolshevism, especially that he was on good terms with their Pope and has his blessing. Hitlers' brand of socialism and nationalism is up to debate of course, and very different from the socialism we know today. Basically, one should look at intentions, and it seems that Hitlers intentions were in tune with Christianity and even Islam on many levels. Better not judge if he is in hell or not, as that is up to God to judge. Finally, i would like to say that environmental protection of animals and plants is not "useless", because caring about living creatures is the sign of a good heart, and a prosperous society.
