  2. Things have come up in this topic that I would like to mention. Insults made against other members on this discussion board are not tolerated. Asking someone if they are blind or stupid is inappropriate and any Mod who sees such an insult can give a warning. It is against ShiaChat rules to copy and paste. So to the guest who copied and pasted a 10 page reply, it was not approved. If you cannot explain your points in a few sentences, don't copy/paste a pamphlet. https://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/12120-shiachatcom-rules-and-policy/?do=findComment&comment=3054933

  5. It is interesting to discuss these real historical Islamic marriages. Lady Khadijah was such a wonderful and elegant woman of virtue, who sacrificed everything for Islam.

  6. In our world view, it doesn't makes sense. But it makes a lot of sense in the world view of Aimma (عليه السلام) which is the best vision. Age is never considered a factor for marriage in that vision. Age is in fact calculated and should be calculated through the mental maturity and how mentally and pyschologically grown up a person is. Ayatullah Khoei did Ijtehad in the age of 13. So, he grew up really fast basically. We can sight numerous examples about it like this.

  8. Nowadays it's no longer a matter of finding them (very easy), look at duas.org. Finding nice compilations with good recitations etc. is a bit harder. There's a collection here of Al-Sahifa Al-Sajjadiyya by Imam Ali ibn Al-Husayn (Zayn Al-Abidin) (عليه السلام). So not a full corpus of Shia duas, but an important group done well.

    no friends

    I think you should at least try. It says in the Holy Quran 'Man (and women) are nothing except what they strive for'. So it is the effort that is important. If you put some effort into trying to meet people, you will make some friends, definitely. I think the main problem in the modern world is that as an adult, we don't have much time to just 'hang out' with people and talk like we did when we were kids and had alot of free time. But if you make some time for this, I think it will work. If you'd like, and you tell me what area you are in, I can see if there are other members in the same area

  13. Yes you often try to express youself like shias are mushrik, ghali etc. I just showed you the mirror, who you are! A witness over all believers? Wash your face thousand times and then think billions of time before making such claim. You believe that this thing cannot happen. Allah cannot appoint someone for "Yudabbir ul Amr". He has mentioned "Ulil Amr" to us. So managing the affair (mudabbirat e amra) is very small thing. He has presented before us examples of non-prophets & prophets in Quran. So Prophet Sulayman (عليه السلام) ruled over what? Does winds were not made

  14. Agreed. To call this sunni centric would simply show one's ignorance of traditional shia beliefs as transmitted through the Qur'an and authentic hadith. Without wanting to be too disrespectful, I don't think this brother was a particular knowledgeable debater (he jumped in without having a good foundation) and even in this video he makes some ignorant statements. His first point is that apparently we told not to read the Qur'an without tafseer as we won't understand it. This isn't really the case (although some people do tend to think this). We are definitely enocuraged to read the Q

Beating women is never okay it has nothing to do with feminism or any of the nonsense excuses u guys r making here anyone that’s grew up with an aggressive father will tell u how horrible it’s made their life not to mention the poor woman who got the abuse be it physically or verbally , it’s never okay ,so don’t act like it’s some part of religion or especially Shia Islam or try to justify it with some anti ism rhetoric , it has nothing to do with anything , it’s just abuse and it’s wrong the prophet was kind and gentle with all his wives and so were all imams and their true compa

    Imams see our deeds

    علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن سماعة، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول: مالكم تسوؤن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟! فقال رجل: كيف نسوؤه؟ فقال: أما تعلمون أن أعمالكم تعرض عليه، فإذا رأى فيها معصية ساءه ذلك، فلا تسوؤا رسول الله وسروه. `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from `Uthman b. `Isa from Sama`a from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام. He said: I heard him say: Why do you upset the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله?! A man said: How do we upset him? So he said: Do you not know that your deeds are presented before him; so if he sees sin in them, he is disturbed by

  19. You are not being honest here. If we wanted to silence you, it would be one click of a button. We haven't done it, because we believe this site should be based on rules. We have rules on the site. As long as you abide by the rules, you can stay on the site. We are not responsible for what everyone on earth who calls themselves as muslim does, we are only responsible for what we do. I will give my advice here, and this is from me, not from the mod team.

  21. Gentrification is a problem in some areas, but I don't think what he's saying applies here. The East side of Dearborn, where the coffee shop is and where most of the Shia businesses are, was traditionally an Italian / Polish neighborhood where the white people went who worked for Ford and GM but didn't want to live in Detroit (which is right next door) because they didn't want to live near black people. The Mayor at that time, Mayor Hubbard, was an open racist, against black people. This is the 50's and 60's. In the 70s and 80s Arabs started moving into the area, mostly from South Lebano

The اجماع of العترة is infallible We understand infallibility differently, i.e no exaggerations, none of this knowledge of the unseen, wilayah takwiyniyyah belief; rather they are infallible in their Hukm, decree, and action.

  30. I wouldn’t say Sunni centric. The views of modern day Shia such as wilayah taqwini are all anti Quranic sentiments which did not exist in the times of the Imams. I salute him for trying to follow Imam Ali as a Shia should instead of hero worshipping him.

  32. Salam Bro, I believe you are more aware about this issue than myself. Please educate me. Level of certainty (all will happen through "the self and inner self " via physical eyes and inner eyes (the heart) ). The inner self can witness certainty with his knowledge or belief (ilm ul yaqeen). Or witness it with eyes (ayn ul yaqeen) because we know seeing is believing. And beyond it (I guess melted in haqq and you will know what haqq is). I am not into sufism or Irfan. Don't have anything that qualified me to be into it. Just curiosity, observations and some experiences that I don

  33. Great in theory does not exist in the real world, upon scrutiny this “infallible” perspective towards the Imams is nowhere to be found. The differences in opinion between each imam is very much evident - to argue for taqiyyah is quite a stretch, especially when you had one of your grand Sheikhs Ibn Al-Junayd who lived at the time of Al-Kulayni - and is considered reliable by Al-Khoei, Najashi, Mufīd - did not believe that the Imams were infallible, and he considered the differences to simply be ikhtilafat in opinion. Therefore, if you’d like to take this route of taqiyyah and juxtapose it

  35. Your sunni friend is under nasibi influence if he thinks this is true - Maula Imam Hasan ((عليه السلام)) never gave bayah to that cursed hypocrite - bayah means swearing unconditional allegiance. He held a sulh - a truce - just like the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) signed the Treaty of Hudaibya with the mushriks. It's easy to see where the rest of your friend's thinking is coming from - sadly there is no known cure for his condition, unless he stops listening to nasibis. It's unlikely that he will listen to any sort of logic or reasoning.

Nothing have we omitted from the Book, and they all shall be gathered to their Lord in the end" (Quran 6:38). “Seest thou not that it is Allah Whose praise all beings in the heavens and on earth do celebrate, and the birds (of the air) with wings outspread? Each one knows its own (mode of) prayer and praise, and Allah knows well all that they do.” (Quran 24:41) There's a strong argument to be made that animals although lacking intellect do have some sort of des

To avoid the bloodshed of the remaining loyal Shi'a and under the agreement that after his death it would return to him and his brother. Yes, after stealing it from Amir Al Momineen Ali. Ok. Ignore his questions. He isn't interested in changing his mind. “The moment you start arguing with an ignorant fool, you have already lost.” ― Imam Ali AS

    I just want to say that I have children, three boys who are now teenagers. I would never think of saying something like that to them, 'Your ugly' or 'Your stupid', etc. I know the profound negative effect that has especially coming from a parent. The fact that you still believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Rasoulallah(p.b.u.h) and Wilayat of Ahl Al Bayt((عليه السلام)) and do the wajibat is the greatest gift that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) could ever give to anyone. You have that gift, the other things are very trivial compared to that. So, please, please don't ever think ab
