    syed_shia got a reaction from AliTanjiro in Qur'an & Sunnah Or Qur'an & Ahlul Bayt?   
    theres nothing wrong with Quran and Sunnah, and i wont be surprised at all if it is authentic in the eyes of the shias.
    All it means follow the sunnah .
    but who is gonna teach us the sunnah?
    hence there are more hadith answering us this , for Allah knows best:
    Follow the Quran and my Ahlul Bayt

    syed_shia got a reaction from Abdul-Hadi in Pictures Of The Prophets And Imaams   
    hmmmm?
    so you think were not showing respect to them?
    why is that?
    Do we draw them with bombs on their head?
    do we draw them naked?
    do we draw them without showing any respect at all?
    the answer to all of them is no?
    so how are we not showing respect?
    Im sure youve seen some animated films such as ''prince of egypt'' which is a film on prophet moses (as). Even this film we are allowed to watch islamically because the prophet was depicted in a respectful way.
    The image here suppose to jog up your memory reagarding the infallible 12 imams, and sometimes the best way to spread your message is through a picture.
    Just like sometimes reenactments are done to spread a message just like on ashura.

    Your a funny guy.
    According to syed sistani. To which you and me are in taqleed saying ali name in salat is not allowed. Proof is here:
    Theres the proof from our mujtehid. Syed Sistani (ra)
    even ayatullah Khameini says :
    So thats the proof of two big scholars.
    Also something to ponder over is what Brother Hizbullah said in another thread on this topic:
    We should not dwell into this much. This is the whole point of taqleed. Ayatullah Sistani (ra) knows more then me and you put together. So hence we should rely on him, and hence i posted his ruling on this.

    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!

    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.

    I have copies of the first 3 volumes.  They are excellent and well constructed.  My only complaint is that I wish that the publisher had included a reference list as to which Imam they were referring - this may be no problem for someone raised as a Shi'a, but if I know Imam Ja'far al Sadiq (AS) as such, referring to him as anything other than that is massively confusing.  Only complaint.  Otherwise, these were reasonably priced and a good buy.  I will be completing the set in the near future in shaa Allah.

    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 they may assist them in their debates. Their life is proof that they were divine.
     
    If you overthink about a subject, you make a simple thing too big and too confusing for yourself to understand.
     
    124000 prophets were sent in the past. One may have not recognised their prophet of their time, but as soon as they have recognised them, aslong as they acknowleged and obeyed them, are they than at fault, for not accepting them sooner?  If you can accept this with Nubuwat? Why not Imamat? Ponder over this please.
     
    Just ponder over the lives of the 12 imams, rather than seeing it purely on a sunni vs shia scholars basis. The fact of the matter is. No sunni or shia can say anything bad on the imams of the ahlul bayt. Infact sufis praise them sometimes in such high manner (in poetry) as if they were shias themselves (but they are not).
     
    Just saying.

    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 when there was an infallible Imam the masses could go to?
     
    I hope the above the make sense.

    syed_shia got a reaction from Netzari in Five Daily Prayers - Separating Vs Combining   
    As salaam aleikum jameean warahmatullah wabarakatuh,
    Firstly I would like to explain that I am not disputing the validity of combining prayers. However a question comes to mind as to why Shias and Shia centres are not adequately promoting the validity and importance of separating the prayers at its appointed time?
    It seems the only option available to a layperson is the option of combining their prayers. Mosque prayer timetables would only show the three prayer time tables per day, instead of the five.
    Why is this?
    I know at times combining prayers would be better than missing it altogether, however, if one is at home all day and it is possible for him to pray at the Salat appointed times (separately), why don’t we?
    In the mosque, especially during special events, why don’t the people separate their prayers in a Jamaat as its more rewarding? I find that people would be present in the mosque for Maghrib and Isha while they are listening to a lecture but still find the need to combine?
    Why can’t we read Maghrib before the lecture and Isha once the lecture has finished? The excuse that there won’t be enough people for the Jamaat, hence they would combine it, is weak, as the believers would be present during the programme.
    Don’t take your prayers lightly my Brothers and Sisters. Don’t be lazy. Don’t assume the combining prayers option is the only option available.
    The Holy Prophet said: "The one who takes prayer light is not of me. No, by Allah such a person will not reach the Haud, Pond of abundant."
    Man La Yahduruhul Faqih, vol. 1, p. 206
    The Holy Prophet said: "Be careful of the prayers, for, on the Day of Resurrection, when Allah the Exalted, will bring the servant (for reckoning), the first thing that He will ask him about will be the prayer. If one brings it completely, he will be of the people of salvation, otherwise, he will be thrown into Fire."Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 82, p. 202
    Prayer is very important and I think Shias have got it the wrong way round when it comes to combining and separating. They stress on the validity of combining more and less on separating albeit both being allowed.
    Why can’t the Shia Centres show the individual prayer times instead, and leave it up to the individual if one wants to combine it?
    Again I am not against combining prayers, but I believe we should be less ignorant and not forget the individual prayer time’s as well.
    Thank you
    Ali

    As Salaam Aleikum.
     
    With sects such as fivers, severs and twelvers, all believing their Imams to be rightly guided. How did these sects emerge?
     
    If Ammar ibn Yasir (ra), Malik Ibn Ashtar (ra) were alive today, would they hold the same views as the Shias of today (twelvers)?
     
    While they were followers of Imam Ali (as) were they automatically also a Shia? How were they different in belief then those of the Sunnis at the time, other than their political view?
     
    If the followers of Imam Ali (as) at that time lived longer, would they have been Waqifi, Ismaili? Would they have rejected the Twelver school of thought if they were alive today?
     
    Why is it that each time an Imam is appointed , from Imam Ali (as) to Imam Mehdi (as) that a sect emerges?
     
    It's therefore quite evident that the view of 12 imams wasn't inscribed in the minds of the early Shias. Therefore how were they different from the Sunnis? What view did they hold different, if they didn't believe or know that there would be 12 Imams?
     
    If it's just the concept of Imams, could it be that this is misunderstood?
    The Sunnis also refer the Imams of Ahlul Bayt as Imams, or Imams of guidance, however they also refer their other learned people or companions by that same title.
     
    So how do we know that the early companions such as Bilal, Salman Farsi etc were Shia, and not Sunni who would hold the Imams of the Ahlul Bayt in high regards. How do we know that if someone who loved the Imams were Shia and not Sunni?  Even today you will find Sunnis with immense love towards the Ahlul Bayt.
     
    The Sunnis say for instance that Imam Husayn (as) is an Imam of Guidance (not divine appointed), but so are all learned people of the religion as they all guide people to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. So Hazrat Abbas (as) would be an Imam, Hazrat Jaffar Tayyar (as) would be an Imam etc. They say Imams doesn't limit to 12.

    I do not agree in abusing any person, whether it be a muslim or non muslim.
     
    I also do not curse any person myself, as I believe its against Islamic morals.
     
    However I merely recite the duas prescribed by the Imams, and say how it has come to us.
     
    For instance Ziyarat ashura mentions Lanah on Yazeed etc.
     
    The whole context of the dua you can see that you are merely asking Allah for justice and standing firm for the Prophet and his Household.
     
    I don't think I have read any dua which categorically sends lanah on the first three caliphs, and to date I have not done so however I do  disagree with them.
     
    Islam itself is far greater than to dwelve in the matters of the 3 caliphs.

    Instead of using narrations, what does the Quran say on tawussal?
     
    Are there Quranic evidences, that even though the dead can hear, that they can help, even if it just means raising their hands to do your dua?
     
    Imagine the salafies are right and that the verse they quote against tawussal is correct, wouldn't we be doing a major sin? Wouldn't callling upon anyone other than Allah be a major shirk.

    Salaam.
    Combing prayers is a legitimate practice performed and allowed by both schools. However the timings differ.
    According to the hanafi school , you may combine the prayers by ''delaying' the previous prayer to the point where when you pray the next when it become due. However this raises question as delaying prayers isnt recommended. Therefore the argument is how could the prophet validate a practice to delay worshipping Allah in such a manner,
    The shia school say combining it is allowed aswell as reading it seperate. When combining it should be read as soon as possible when the prayer is due. So if Zohr time is due the prayer of zohr than asr is due at that time, to allow you to combine it.... However if you do have time it is very much stressed upon by the prophet and ahlul bayt to read the prayers at its appointed times, ie seperating. Although combining is allowed, its unfortunanate that most shias forsake seperating prayers altogether.
    Allah knows best.
    Salaam
