  1. From the Messenger of Allah (saw), he said: "The Imams after me are twelve. The first one is 'Ali b. Abi Taleb (as) and the last of them is the Qa'im (as). The one who seeks nearness to them is a believer. And the one who rejects them is a disbeliever". [Kamal Aldeen, Hadith 4, Page 248] https://ia801708.us.archive.org/18/items/348783478349/kmal-aldin.pdf
  2. I understand the point that you're trying to reach but there is also a greater context to this. One of the meanings of the word Sunnah in Arabic is 'teachings' and in the context of the aforementioned Hadith, it is the teachings of RasulAllah (saw), so the Hadiths are not entirely mutually exclusive or conflict with each other. Malik's report is not absolutely weak and I believe its more appropriate to rather say that the issue with it is that its vague or generic since it could be interpreted to mean that the "Sunnah" of the Prophet (saw) can be taken from anyone who met him, like Abu Hurayra or Malik b. Anas and other individuals whom are not recognized by Imamis, and not restricting it to the Ahlulbayt (as). The Prophet (saw) ordered the Muslims to follow the Ahlulbayt (as) because they are the most authentic source to reach his Sunnah.
  3. Simply because loving the Ahlulbayt (as) out of words without absolutely following their teachings does not suffice in obeying the orders of the Prophet (saw). Both the Sunni and Imami school fundamentally believe that the Prophet (saw) before his demise ordered the Muslims to follow the Quran and his Sunnah, and that one will not separate from the other until the final hour, and we believe that the only gateway to the Sunnah is via the Ahlulbayt. The Ahlulbayt from all of the Sahabah, Tabi'in and Atba' at-Tabi'in are the only ones qualified to hold an authoritative position in teaching the Prophet's Sunnah to the Muslims and they hold this unique position based on their superiority in virtues, knowledge and piety as shown in this thread.
  4. A man came to Imam 'Ali b. Musa al-Redha ع and asked him, "Is your God able to fit the heavens and the earth and everything within them inside an egg?" Imam al-Redha answered him: Yes, and smaller than an egg, he fitted them inside your pupil. Because when you open your eyes, they are encompassing the heavens, the earth and everything in them, and if he wished he would have blinded you from seeing them as well. [at-Tawheed] جاء رجل إلى الرضا عليه السلام فقال: هل يقدر ربك أن يجعل السماوات والأرض وما بينهما في بيضة؟ قال:نعم، وفي أصغر من البيضة، قد جعلها في عينك وهي أقل من البيضة، لأنك إذ افتحتها عاينت السماء والأرض وما بينهما، ولو شاء لأعماك عنها
  5. يخويه تنادي ولا لك امعين وقومك على الغيره مطاعين أنا منين اجيب المرتضى منين عن كربلا بويه غبت وين تدري بأميّه تطلب بدين يطلبون ثار ابدّر وحنين هجموا فرد هجمة على حسين
  6. I shall go towards death, and there is no shame for a man in death, as long as his intentions are based on truth and he struggles as a Muslim. There is no shame in death for the valiant, as long as they support the righteous, fight the criminals and abandon the tyrants. Thus, if I live, I shall not have any regrets, and if I am slain, I will not be blamed. Nothing is more humiliating than living under the humiliation of oppressors  - Sayed ash-Shuhada (as)

  7. I humbly ask that you pray by the right of Sayed al-Shuhada (pbuh) for me and my father who was recently laid off from work to find secure employment despite the current depressing state of the economy.
  8. MUHSIN KHAN - Say: "Allah knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the unseen of the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees, and hears (everything)! They have no Wali (Helper, Disposer of affairs, Protector, etc.) other than Him, and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." [al-Kahf: 26] Allah's divine rule encompasses the authority of his Hujjaj on earth, whether it's the authority of the prophets or their successors (Khulafah). This includes the Khalifate of prophet Muhammad (saw) because based on Ahadith and Ayah 59 of Surat an-Nisa, the successor of the prophet is the Hujjah of Allah on earth and we must obey him just as we must obey the prophet and Allah. He inherits the authority of the prophet and acts as the representative of Allah on earth and judges only based on what Allah orders him and not via his fallible Ijtihad. This can only be an infallible person like the Prophet whom Allah Himself appoints on His behalf to govern the affairs of the people of his time.
  9. Close 1) Muhammad b. Abi Bakr (rah) died while he was in Egypt when the army of 'Amr b. 'As invaded it, not as he was traveling to it. Malik al-Ashtar (rah) died on the way there after being ordered by Amir al-Mu'mineen (as) to become the governor of Egypt instead Muhammad, as he saw him to be more fit to oppose Muawiyia's invading army but he was eventually poisoned by one of Muawyia's soldiers during his journey. 2) As king said. For anyone who is interested in a detailed answer you can read the following: Except the face of Allah everything will get destroyed. (Surah Qasas 28:88) Most commentators have said that ‘face’ means the self of Allah and everything would be destroyed before the day of Judgement and then created again. Some have said that it means the religion of Allah and His worship. Ibne Babawayh in Tawheed has narrated from Ibne Khusaima that I asked Imam Sadiq (a.s.) about its explanation and he replied: The face of Allah is the religion of Allah and the Holy Prophet (S) and Amirul Momineen (a.s.) were the religion of Allah and creatures of Allah they were the eyes of Allah who used to see their action by the light of Allah and they were the tongue of Allah, as Allah used to converse through them. And these gentlemen used to convey the knowledge of Allah to His creatures. https://www.al-islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol3-allamah-muhammad-baqir-al-majlisi/part-39-side-Allah-face-Allah-and-hands-Allah 3) Correct. The Meccans had no previous knowledge of those stories about the Prophet's prophecy that the Jews in Medina had knowledge of.
  10. 1) A close companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as). He played a significant role in the revolution against 'Uthman b. 'Affan, was appointed by Amir al-Mu'mineen (as) as commander of his army during the battle of Jamal, and was eventually poisoned by one of the supporters of Mua'wiyia on his way to Egypt. Who is this companion? 2) What is the meaning of Wajh (the face) when referred to Allah as mentioned in Ayah 27 of Surat ar-Rahman and other Ayat in the Quran, according to the exegesis of the Ahlulbayt (as)? 3) What was the main factor that persuaded the Aws and the Khazraj tribes of Medina to believe in the prophecy of Muhammad (saw) and accept him as their first leader to unite them after centuries of feud between them, all before they even met and saw the Prophet and despite the Mushrikeen of Mecca living for 10 years around him and yet still refused to accept Islam?
  11. 1) Mina? 2) Abu Sufyan 3) I always thought that Musailamah was only killed by Wahshi b. Harb when Wahshi threw his spear at him. I don't know about another member also playing a role in killing him. 4) Between 7 and 8 years old 5) al-Ma'mun?
