    Thoughts 2019

    Please everyone, if you can, make some duas for my mother-in-law. The doctors have never figured out what has been making her ill for months, but she wants to have the machines removed, and without them, the doctors give her only days to live. We'd all like to see her prove the doctors wrong and make a full recovery, God willing.

    Let's make Eid Ghadeer plans!

    Salam everyone! Eid Ghadeer is just around the corner. There are very few of us who live in a Shia society and for most of us Eid Ghadeer can be like any other day apart from the celebration at our mosque and that too if one happens to live close enough, but there are other things that can be done to reap the benefits of this great day. So everyone let's join in and make some plans and niyyah of doing something(other than joining in the milads at Islamic centre) that day to please the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imam(عليه السلام) It can be one of the Amaals from Mufatih, any good deed, a promise to stop a bad habit or cultivate a new good one. I just watched a video by Agha Panahiyan and he talked about giving food to people on the day of Ghadeer and quoted a narration from Imam Ali,"feeding people on this day is like giving food to ten hundred thousand Prophets." So right now I have made a niyyah that I will feed some people on Eid Ghadeer, InshaAllah.

    Yemenis celebrated Eid Al-Ghadeer with mass rallies in the capital Sanaa on Monday. Yemen’s Al-Massirah TV channel reported that three public rallies were organized in Sanaa. Thousands of Yemenis flock to Al Tahrir Square, West of Al Thawra Garden and Al Sabeen IN THE Yemeni capital, according to Al-Massirah. The Yemeni network said the three squares were overcrowded with people raising flags and banners related to the event. They also chanted against the US policies in the region. The ceremony started with Quranic verses followed by poems about Imam Ali’s virtues and sacrifices of Prophet Mohammed’s ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) Ahlul Bayt (household) in bid to preserve the Islamic Religion. Shia Muslims worldwide annually celebrate the Eid al-Ghadeer on the 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah in the Islamic calendar. It is a day when the Prophet of Islam appointed Imam Ali – the first Shia Imam – as his successor and the Muslim’s next leader. http://english.almanar.com.lb/807358

    Yes and no. Men are women are not the same creatures, although they have the same needs to certain extends, they do not have them to the same extend in all cases. Islam does not say that men and women are the same creatures, so why would there be equality in what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) asks of them? Nor does Islam preach equal rights for men and women, rather there are numerous differences in the two genders rights that are based on the hikmah of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the clear differences in the nature of men and women, which in turn affects their needs and wishes. That is not to say that one gender is better than the other, rather both are equally good in the sense of their worth as human beings and beings with a roh(spirit) in them. This is my understanding of what Islam says based on my own research and studies. If you have scholars who says the same things your saying in regards to rights and equality (similar to your definition) I would appreciate it if you shared it so I can also see.

    Hard to walk away

    As Salam Aleykom, I would like to ask for advice. It is very hard for me since I have never done this before but I feel that I am no longer able to carry on. I have been married for 13 years and have 4 beautiful children, Alhamdurilla. Our family is the perfect family to the outsiders, my husband is in a highflyer job earning huge amount of money, our children are good kids, but as I said it is only from the outside. During our marriage my husband, from his own fault have lost his entire money few times due to bad business deals, and we had to start everything from zero, I have never complained and never made him feel bad about it, I stood by him, I have never married him for his money or his good looks, I have always been there thick or thin. He was someone I looked up to I thought he will guide our family the right way, but unfortunately it is not the case. He very much changed during the years, family does not interest him other than paying the school fees and buying food. He is always angry at home, verbally and physically abusive, he controls everything by money, for us he is not happy to provide, but for his siblings the funds are unlimited. But this is something you could live with if there was love or care, or even respect, but there is none, we and especially myself I am dying for my husband`s effection, But there is none, I get only the degrading words, that I am useless and worthless, slowly he reduced my confidence to nothing. He has friends whom are neither married or have been divorced, they go on boys holiday and engage in mutah with prostitutes, my husband since we are married has done this at many times as I came to know just recently, that includes the times when we were newlyweds and when I was pregnant, even during Muharram, it is absolutely heartbreaking, he justifies his actions making up stories about me to his friends, as I came to know, he portrays me as a horrible dirty person. I would have loved to feel loved by my husband I do not know how it feels like when your husband take you out for dinner, or speak to you with effection, how sad is that. From his wife he denies this but for the prostitutes he gives it freely. I have no respect left for him at all and I do not see it in me to stay, I hoped and prayed that he might change, I stayed to let my kids grow up in a family, but now I do not see any other way , other than leave with the children. But I am sad for them, they deserved better than this. May Allah give me guidance.

    Nice, the guy is a piece of work. Almost turned me away from Islam actually. I think he's a racist clown. Out of all countries to deported from, he is about to get deported from Malaysia, wow. Oh what's that? I guess PeaceTV will have less people using your Chinese channel because the news of your remarks will spread like wildfire. The Chinese were in Malaysia long before you were, Zakir Naik. You were a guest and now you'll be leaving.

    Stop giving woman Confirmation

    I don't think (most) women dress to be looked at by men. I think most women dress to fit in with and be accepted by other women. But besides that minor point, I do agree that we all need to practice social hijab. Men and women who are not married to each other should never even come close to flirting or being overly friendly. Lowering gaze is one aspect of that.

    I had read that the black plague during the medieval times failed to spread to Muslim nations because people used to wash themselves 5 times a day (for salah) and before eating. So the germs could not spread as easily as they could in the European lands where they had no tradition of washing. For me it is the inner peace and tranquillity I feel after prayers or reading the Qu'ran. Nothing else can give that feeling for me. Also the emotional impact of the events of Karbala... Usually men feel ashamed about crying but Karbala is completely different. You cry and it purifies your soul. Nothing else in the secular world really feels this way.

    Indian Muslim preacher Zakir Naik has ignited outrage in Malaysia after suggesting the expulsion of its ethnic Chinese minorities, even as the country's cabinet mulls the possibility of cancelling his permanent residency. At least four cabinet ministers have publicly urged Prime Minister Mahathir to deport controversial preacher to India. On Wednesday, two ministers told Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammed at a cabinet meeting that Naik needs to be deported as his speeches were "inflammatory in nature". At least four cabinet ministers have called for Naik’s deportation along with other senior politicians. "We have expressed our position which is that action must be taken and that Zakir Naik should no longer be allowed to remain in Malaysia," said Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo and Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran in a joint statement. "The Prime Minister has taken note of our concerns. We leave it to him to consider the position and to decide soonest possible what will be done to deal with the problem," the statement said. https://www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2019/08/outrage-malaysia-zakir-naik-suggests-chinese-expulsion-190814230715236.html

    Find the ḥādith in Arabic, and then write [beside] it in the search bar (in Google), “shiaonlinelibrary.” For example, I did so, and this is what I found. مَنْ يُحْرَمْ الرِّفقَ يُحْرَمْ الْخَيْرَ “Whoever is deprived of gentleness is deprived of all good.” I found it in ʿal-Kāfi, volume 2, page 77. عَلِيٌّ، عَنْ أبِيهِ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ المُغِيرَةِ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ أبِي المِقْدَامِ، رَفعَهُ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ قَالَ : إِنَّ فِي الرِّفقِ الزِّيَادَةَ وَالْبَرَكَة، وَمَنْ يُحْرَمِ الرِّفقَ يُحْرَمِ الْخَيْرَ (This is one of the listed aḥādith in the link you posted).

    Let's make Eid Ghadeer plans!

    Fasting on the Day of Ghadir: قَالَ الصَّادِقُ:صِيَامُ يَوْمِ غَدِيرِ خُمٍّ يَعْدِلُ صِيَامُ عُمْرِ الدُّنْيَا لَوْ عَاشَ إِنْسَانٌ ثُمَّ صَامَ مَا عُمِرَتِ الدُّنْيَا لَكَانَ لَهُ ثَوَابَ ذٌلِكَ It has been narrated from as-Sadiq [Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad] (peace be upon him) that: “Fasting on the Day of Ghadir is equivalent to fasting the time span of the (existence of the) entire world – meaning that if a person were to live a life of the entire existence of the world and were to fast this whole time, the reward for this fasting would be equivalent to fasting (this one day of Ghadir).” Wasa'il ash-Shi'a, Volume 7, Page 324, Hadith 4

    Stop giving woman Confirmation

    Men give women the confirmation, not the other way around, so why are you telling sisters to cover their feet, why aren't you telling us men to sort out our lust? Seems to me that when it boils down to it, your argument is that women are still the problem not the men. Us men give the confirmation, but it's the woman's fault for accepting that confirmation? I'm not trying to be funny, but which women do you think perverted men in Muslim countries lust after, women in hijabs and abayas or women with no hijab and strap tops? You're preaching to Muslim women who let's be honest do a commendable job of getting through life without being attacked, they observe hijab in a time when it's easier not to. They do their best. You won't go and tell non-Muslim women and non-Muslim men what you just told us though, will you? They are after all the ones who influence Muslim men and Muslim women. It's easier to lecture the easy targets. Muslim women are easy targets to all sorts of garbage being thrown at them and I think they deserve some credit where it's due and they deserve a break as well.

    What is your own personal hujja or proof of Islam for you? Of course we all believe the Qur'an, Prophetic Sunnah and teachings of Ahlul Bayt are sufficient in of themselves, but for some in addition to these, there probably is some specific aspect or teaching in Islam that personally convinces you that this is the Haqq. Now personally, in regards to Islam in general, and don't laugh y'all I'm being serious (for a change), but I swear our toilet hygiene etiquettes really is profound. I just think truly from the depths of my heart, alhamdulillah for being a Muslim. Can you imagine, (especially guys), there are grown ass adults out there walking around with soiled underwear, and it's all down to ignorance. If we were not blessed with being believers, honestly many of us, if not most would be like this (most of the global population as a whole). Yet we have instructions taught to us by Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to cleanse ourselves properly. This is from the divine no doubt at all. In regards to Shia Islam, for me again, something simple, yet profound, our wudhu, I strongly believe it to be the authentic way, both in regards to Quranic description and the historical likeliness with 7th century Arabia and availability of water that this is how it would have been performed, especially with the mudd volume the Prophet used. And of course our rememberance of Ashura. Honestly, had we just fasted "because the Jews did to commemorate Moses' victory over Pharoah" like most Muslims, and just seen the battle of Karbala as merely unfortunate and a tragic period in history, rather than the true impact it had on saving the essence of Islam from corruption, then seriously, if not for us, who would remember the sacrifice and oppression of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and the family of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)? More importantly, further questioning digs deeper questions as to why Imam Hussain rose up and events that led up to this, going back to Saqifah. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Alameen, wa sallalahu 3ala Muhammad wa aale he taahireen

    Below is a rough outline on how to go about validating Islam and in particular Shia'ism - "from nothing to Shi'ism". As it will be seen, majority of the people do not possess the skills to complete all these steps and hence they have no choice but to remain imitators in some stages. Perhaps some things can be added or tweaked, but this is what a general journey would look like: Metaphysical 1. Acknowledging the existence of apriori knowledge and self-evident principles, such as: I exist, law of non-contradiction, law of identity, law of excluded middle 2. Acknowledging certain tools for knowledge, understanding their relationship and giving them priority as follow: Knowledge by Presence, Intellect, Senses etc. 3. Determining one's moral philosophy - objective, subjective, intuitive etc. 4. Establishing the need to even investigation into religion (Wujub al-Nazar fi al-Din) I.e. Pascal's wager - conclusion directly dependent on one's moral philosophy 5. Proving the existence of a Necessary Existence (various arguments exist) 6. Discuss existential qualities of a necessary existence: Most important to prove oneness; a necessary existence cannot depend on another existence for its existence, it cannot be a composite 7. Proof of oneness of God: a. Argument of composition (tarkeeb), or b. Argument of Kamaal Mutlaq (primarily a philosophical argument) 8. Prove that there is a purpose in life and necessity of sending a Prophet Textual 1. Rule out majority of religions, particularly Eastern religions, because they are theologically incompatible with what was proven concerning the necessary existence, specifically oneness of God 2. Other religions/cults can be easily ruled out, mostly through further theological development 3. Abrahamic Tradition: a. Perhaps most easily viable method would be to consider traditions prophesizing Islam, Prophet Mohammed (p) etc. b. For example, this thread is very beneficial c. Chronology + reports of miracles carried out by Prophet: Would require the development of a methodology to criticize chains of reports as someone from the outside looking in, or some historiographical methodology when analyzing the Islamic historical + hadith corpus d. Miraculous nature of the Qur'an: This is the least viable method for the majority of people. Also requires one to look into discussions of collection of the Qur'an, Qira'at of Qur'an and Tahreef al-Qur'an 4. Islam: Sunnite vs Shiite a. Multiplicity of narrations present in both corpuses for Imam 'Ali (a) 5. Shi'ism: Rebut Kaysaniyyah, Zaidiyyah, Waqiffiyah, Isma'iliyyah, the mystery of the 12th Imam etc. Wasalam

    Plastic Pollution

    Assalamallikum, Plastic pollution is a real problem. Plastic straws are currently the 'popular' topic, but I can remember my first plastic straw, in a restaurant, in grade school. Everyone at the table wanted to try one because they were new, and all thought they were/are better than the waxed paper we always had. So we can go back to paper straws, which also had a 'bendy' version. Paper bags for shopping I also grew up with, and you had to be careful they did not rip, but were good to use. So what else can we do to eliminate plastic problems?

    Pernkopf's Atlas

    People are idiots in my humble opinion. It's a very detailed and accurate atlas, however it went out of publication in the 90s due to its dark past and many don't want use it(It's still available in libraries). Why stop using it? It's still a valuable learning resource and not using it is not going to bring those people back from the dead. Instead they should start publishing and selling it again with addition of a special editior's note about the book's history and a percentage of the price donated towards some some charitable cause or scholarship started in the memory of the people in the book.

    I lived there for a time and continue to visit every year at least once. While the average Masry in the street will believe the Wahabi propaganda that reaches them through sermons or satelitte channels that Shias worship Imam Ali or were founded by a Yemeni Jew, etc, traditional Islam in the country which has a more Sufi inclination, definitely is more open in their love for Ahlul Bayt than other Sunni Arab countries and names of Ahlul Bayt are very common. As we know it is in their history, plus with religious sites believed to contain members of the Prophet's family, including the blessed head of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) (of course majority view is not the case), as with the burial site of lady Zainab sa. My friend told me there is even an Egyptian expression that mentions sayida Zainab's name. Whether they are more open to Shia is of course another matter, but love for Ahlul Bayt is certainly prominent. Watch this clip https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2061790093911148&id=100002405325835 Also You'd be hard pressed to see this openly in Gaza or Amman, etc.

Wrote it straight through, then went back and double check the 'accounting' -names and numbers consistent kind of work. Then added in words or sentences -which came to 500 more words. In the end, it came out ~99% the way l wanted it because some of the editing didn't get published.

    So you're saying that society has this vendetta against women and women are helpless flailing little dolls that have no mind of their own that they use to disassociate from the satisfaction of being admired by men and maintaining hijab? Men might be helpless in the face of their desires, but I assure you, women have enough self respect and pride and fear of Allah in order to be able to maintain the required level of hijab, regardless of how many men look at them.

    That's a great tip in my opinion. I feel like at least 50% of the day is activities like this (cooking, cleaning, driving, taking a shower, etc.), all which can be transformed into a God-related action if you recite a surah in your mind, or make dhikr of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I also do this! Lately I've started to listen to dua kumayl and dua makarimul akhlaq daily, and I alternate between them from one day to the next. And also along with it one short surah from the Qur'an (usually the musabbihat surahs which are nr 57, 59, 61, 62 and 64). Apparently the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) used to recite these surahs every night before sleeping. Though reciting them all takes soo long, so I just pick go one by one each night. I feel like reading duas and Qur'an along with their meanings really gives a spiritual boost in a persons life.

In nearly all the episodes there is nothing objectionable BUT In one of the episodes about the miners there is full frontal male nudity. It's a sub-plot to the overall story and you won't miss anything by skipping over that material. It's in episode 3 from about 36:46 to 38:46. .

    You're reading it from a Biblical narrative, in which Eve tempted Adam which places the blame on her, and consequently the pains of child-birth are a punishment. We disagree. Both equally were deceived by Shaytan. Both ate from the tree (the fruit is not mentioned). Qur'an 7:22-23 So he made them fall, through deception. And when they tasted of the tree, their private parts became apparent to them, and they began to fasten together over themselves from the leaves of Paradise. And their Lord called to them, "Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you that Satan is to you a clear enemy?" They said, "Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers." Also Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) intended to place Adam (عليه السلام) as a khalifah on Earth. The lesson we draw from the "Original Sin", is not that all humans are condemed to inherit Adam's sin from birth, rather we can attain Allah's Mercy from turning unto Him in repentance. 20:122 Then his Lord chose him and turned to him in forgiveness and guided [him].

    Ws. Why can't you be both? One of the greatest calamities our hawzas have had is having scholars who only and only specialize in religious sciences. For a vast majority, this has also meant that they rely on the religion to feed, clothe and house them : a recipe for disaster and potential compromise of the independence of the scholars.

    A question about Ghadir Khumm

    I think this is a better map. As you can see only the Muslims coming from Yemen and Oman have to travel south, the other all have to follow the same route. So while people from these two countries may or may not have been at Ghadeer the rest of them(80%) would still have travelled tof that point. But this is just one point. Here is Qur'an verse 5:67 "O Apostle! Deliver what has been sent down to you from your Lord; and if you don’t do it, you have not delivered His message (at all); and Allah will protect you from the people ...” Shias believe the revelation for above verse came when Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was three miles from Ghadir Khumm and this led to him stopping the people at Ghadir and addressing them there (From AlMufid->) even though on that particular day weather conditions were very tough and there wasn't enough water for the animals at Ghadir highlighting how critical it was to make the announcement right there and then. Sunnis,however believe the verse to be Madani.

    What happened to the other warnings?

    Because people have always distorted the teachings of the true religions. The basic message has been the same since the time of Adam(عليه السلام). We see it happening these days with Islam. We have scholars giving interpretations of the Qur'an which better suit the 'liberal' Muslims. For example taking verses from the Qur'an to prove all music is halal and permissible. لاَ إِكْرَاهَ فِى الدِّينِ won't change till the end of times but there will be people who will twist it to use it to their wishes and they will have people following them, most of them being individuals who have never picked up the Qur'an, who have no idea what the whole verse is,zero knowledge about the context but they will shout left and right 'there is no compulsion in deen' as a justification for their unislamic lifestyle. Maybe you have heard of the tradition that says Imam e Zamana (عليه السلام) will implement a new sharia. It won't be a new sharia but the same Islam Prophet Muhammad(عليه السلام) preached but Islam would have become so 'ghareeb' in that age that people will think of it as something unfamiliar and new.
