  1. salaam. There is also Kamil Ziyarat, Mishkatul Anwar, Kitab Sulaym Qays, Behar Al Anwar around 4 volumes so far have been translated i believe. I do know more is on the way inshallah. Plus Al Kafi which i ordered just yesterday, is available in full.
  2. Thanks Brother. I have got the first book of Al Kafi by Shaykj Arastu. This would take along time to complete my set if I was to wait for this to finish which is a shame, as its been over a year with no 3rd book. I personally think if Shaykh Arastu authenticates each hadith from sources and with explanation on this too, i would have no problem ordering the books again. But as i have been waiting for Al Kafi full set for such a long time, I cant wait any longer, lol. Thanks for the suggestion.
  3. Well meet up together and both wear it. lol.
  4. I actually like wearing a turban. But sadly i dont feel comfortable wearing this in our centres due to being the ONLY one. When i did, people asked why i wore it as i wasnt an arab. So i didnt feel comfortable, but like to wear it in salah. Sunnis wear it all the time, and feel personally more comfortable wearing it there. However than feel the odd one again when praying Salah with hands on the side (shia alert), so its a no win situation. Things need to change!
  5. Thanks again. Thats all I needed to know. Will be ordering it all today Very exited.
  6. Thanks brother for the reply. Ah yes i can understand it must get confusing. I just ordered Kamiul Ziyarat and was impressed that the author added notes to say which imam it was. At the time i was rather impressed. Shame its not in Al Kafi, however that wont stop me from buying it. Does the book bend by any chance after a read. I read that from someones review on it, but not sure if its that bad as he says it is. I have got sahih muslim, and sahih bukhari in hard cover so got no idea how it will be like in paperback. Thats my main concern really.
  7. Salaam All. I am considering purchasing the Al Kafi books on here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Al-Kafi-1-8-English-Translation/dp/0991430867/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 Has anyone purchased this, as would like to know the quality of the product please. is it worthwhile waiting for the hardcover format to come out, or is this ok? My main concern as i dont want the book cover to be all bend after reading, especially if some books have 500 pages. If its bounded properly im sure its not a problem, but just wanted to check this with others who have this Thanks.
  8. Salaam. I wear one just for the purpose that it has ayat kursi written on it. However mine doesnt look like the karra which the sikh wear. But with all other muslim accesories being made, I don't see the harm in wearing it. Aslong as you know its not sunnah. The only benefit could be if a dua is written on it.
  9. Salaam. According to the sunni school of thought, the recitation of as salaat khairal [.....] is established part of adhaan. They do not recognise that it was 'added' later. The shia school of thought do acknowledge that 'aliun waliullah' isn't part of the adhan and have added it, althought with the intention it's not part of the adhan...
  10. Married for just over 6 years with 2 lovely princesses. My wife is my best friend and my 2 daughters my lifeline. Can't live without them. Just saying. Ali
  11. Tatbir, zanjeer is all a relatively new act introduced in the mourning ritual. Those who try to justify it use rather weak hadith to kid themselves. Do you really need a fatwa to prove this is haraam? Just Saying Ali
  12. Allah [swt] knows best what's in their hearts and he will judge each person on an individual basis, and we believe in his justice. After reading a few lines in the post above, i couldn't continue as it was really incorrect. No surprise, as it was taken from an anti shia site. I don't know what you are trying to prove from this? Ali
  13. Salaam Our Imams should not be confused with the Imams of the Ahle Sunnah Madhabs. They are not the same. Our Imams are divinely appointed to guide mankind. You seem to suggest that just because they didn't physically write their works or their students didn't compile their works, they aren't on the same level and therefore the shia faith is not right. Did Nabi Adam [a.s] write a book? Did Yusuf [a.s] write a book? The prophet were sent as a guide to mankind, not as a author to gather works in writing, to collect evidence in writing to prove to the future generation with references so
  14. Why not start with Scale of Wisdom, compilation of hadith, its on amazon. Or something basic such as A Bundle of Flowers (available on al-islam.org).
  15. Insha'Allah we should all unite. The best way to unite is to accept the differences and unite on the common grounds. So to start off this topic by mentioning Umar Ibn Khattab, is not the way forward. Let's all unite in the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficient the Most Mericful. Ali
  16. Salaam Aleikum Brother. Great question and good on you for asking this. Well there are. You seem like a knowledge guy so I am sure there's no need for me to mention them all. The point is that the sunni world needed scholars after the prophet as they do not consider their own caliphs divenely appointed. Their scholarship therefore started earlier than the Shia. The Shias were being guided by the 12 imams and they were quoting the words of the prophet etc. For this reason when the occultation of the Imam started, is the same year the scholarship commenced. Why would it start before
  17. Salaam. I would just like to know the following please. Might sound like a silly question. I am paying aqeeqah for my daughter via muslim hands. They seem like a reputable good company for this. However I would also like to personally pay a relative that lives abroad to do the aqeeqah and distribute it to the poor. Would it be ok to do the aqeeqah sacrifice twice? Gut instinct is that its good. More the better? Just want to double check, just incase. lol Thanks Alit
  18. ^^^ no thats not correct. ASR prayer is slightly before the sunni hanafi timetable and ISHA is kinda the same as the sunnis. Best thing to do is to go on moonsighting.com and they can produce a timetable for you based on where you are located, which is in accordance with the Jafari Madhab for praying the prayers seperate. Email them. moonsighting@gmail.com Ali
  19. Salaam. I would be happy to do this with the following conditions -it has to be in this forum. end of condition :) If you are interested PM me. salaam
  20. Salaam. When reading the nawafil prayers, i find it much easier praying seperate than combining. I also find it nicer to seperate as I spread out the prayers throughout the day. I tend to combine when I know I would miss it, or if i were to seperate the concentration would lack, due to the surrounding I am in, either at work or at someones house. This tend to be in winter period when the day is short. Salaam
  21. Salaam. I have received a private message relating to this, which i can only assume one thinks i am doubting my own belief, which is not the case. This is just one of my many thought provoking questions. Its good to question yourself. Sometimes when I do people think i have converted, when its not the case. I am merely stepping up the mark to contemplate and question our own ideologies and beliefs. I was hoping to have a dialogue on this. If we as the Shias can confidently answer this, when a non shia present the questions to us, atleats we can provide a constructive answer. Salaam
  22. As Salaam Aleikum Brother Nadir, I have no hatred in my heart for the caliphs. However I do not praise them nor do I agree with how they acted during and after the Prophet lifetime (saw). The belief in the caliphate in accordance with the Sunni faith, is not an part of Aqeeda (which a lot of them say, however I do not think is the case). If this is true, why make a fuss about this? Why care if Shias don't praise these individuals and criticise for their wrong doings? I understand wholeheartedly that its wrong and unislamic to abuse the caliphs, or any other living person for that matter
  23. You can't do Ijtehad when an imam is present (imam Ali) . As this falls in the concept of you Imamate, you can't do Ijtehad in aqeeda and expect the same reward. Allah knows best
  24. The issue with muswiyah and Aidha is different. That wasn't Ijtehad What they claim, you can't do wrong and pretend you are doing Ijtehad To get away with it.
