  1. Isnt it funny that she was going to meet Adnan Dulaimi from the "Official Sunni List" and near to where the offices of this party she was kidnapped? And isnt it funny also that when she was released it was through another "Official Sunni List" member Tariq Hashimi? Parliamentary bloc number 718 or the "Official Sunni List" have alot dealings with shadowy groups and characters that are guilty of kidnapping Iraqis and non-Iraqis as well as other terrorist atrocities.
  2. Hmm.. you do realise that if we were to use your logic and reasoning then Hamas in Palestine are "collaborationist traitors" as you put it. Some people have such hatred for the Shia, that no mater how hard they try to disguise it, the hate always comes out and prevails (a bit like using air freshner at a sewage treatment plant). For your sake Sabahudin look up the history of Shias and then read the Holy Quran (7:137) and see if that verse applies to the Shia.
  3. The part in bold letters and underlined should read "Iraq later became the resting place for 5 (not 4) other top Shia leaders of Imam Ali’s descent".
  4. To be honest I have not been to Sayyid Musawi's lectures before. However I have heard from quite a few people that he is a "good" speaker. He certainly has experience discussing with sunni and salafi/wahhabi scholars. To the people who say that Sayyid Musawi is not a good lecturer I say this: learn about Islam, go to Hawza and become a speaker so that you expand the pool of speakers in this country. Sayyid Musawi has all the credentials for his job. For a non-hawza educated person to criticize an Alim is as absurd as a plumber telling the doctor their not doing their job properly. May Allah (swt) guide us all.
  5. (bismillah) (salam) Try organising a seminar one week before it is scheduled to take place and you will see for yourself the complexities of doing such a thing. All the speakers based in London had Tabligh duties for the Arba'een of Imam Hussein. The topic of Sayyid Musawi will be on the Ahlulbayt (The Ark of Salvation Safeenat-un-Najaat). This will be a chance for the (open minded) Sunnis to learn more about the important position the Ahlulbayt have in Islam. All in all negativity is an unfortunate character trait that we as Muslims and Shia of Ahlulbayt have. Instead of those (well intentioned) comments, perhaps the poster could have prayed for the success of this event and that in the future the Shia movement in the London School of Pharmacy goes from strength to strength.
  6. Ali Latif will be the second of the two speakers. He will speak about Iraq from a political viewpoint
  7. (bismillah) (salam) There will be a seminar at the London School of Pharmacy on Wednesday 22 March 2006 starting at 1:30 pm. The seminar is entitled "The Ark of Salvation: From Karbala to Samarra". Confirmed speakers are Sayyid Mohammed Al-Musawi and Ali Latif. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. Address: 29/39 Brunswick Square, London, WC1N 1AX Nearest tube: Bus Russell Square 91, 168, 188 King's Cross 7, 59, 68
  8. (bismillah) (salam) Bro Salafi Boy: There is a Quranic precedent of building a mosque over the graves of righteous people. [18.21] And thus did We make (men) to get knowledge of them that they might know that Allah's promise is true and that as for the hour there is no doubt about it. When they disputed among themselves about their affair and said: Erect an edifice over them-- their Lord best knows them. Those who prevailed in their affair said: We will certainly raise a masjid over them. Following on from this verse we have the following verse 2.114] And who is more unjust than he who prevents (men) from the masjids of Allah, that His name should be remembered in them, and strives to ruin them? (As for) these, it was not proper for them that they should have entered them except in fear; they shall meet with disgrace in this world, and they shall have great chastisement in the hereafter. Another verse to bear in mind [9.18] Only he shall visit the mosques of Allah who believes in Allah and the latter day, and keeps up prayer and pays the poor-rate and fears none but Allah; so (as for) these, it may be that they are of the followers of the right course. I hope the resident Aalims on this board can give further discussions on these and other related verses. Wasalam
  9. Some people think that WW3 was the cold war which ended with the collapse of the USSR, and that waht we're seeing today is WW4. Fighting World War IV Fighting World War IV by Jimmy DeYoung A nation that has lost more than 21,000 of its finest young men and women in bloody conflicts in its short fiftyfive-year history understands what it is to be at war. From the beginning of its modern-day era, Israel has had to fight for its existence almost daily against those who wish to annihilate it. Bible students who understand the prophetic scenario for the last days realize there will be continuing conflict between the Jewish nation and the nations surrounding Israel. The Scriptures reveal that Israel's neighbors are set on removing this tiny state from not only the map of the Middle East but the region itself. For years some have speculated that World War III will play out on the battlefields of Israel and the Middle East. However, in the last six months or so, former U.S. Central Intelligence Agency Director R. James Woolsey, has said World War III is over. Said Woolsey, we are now fighting World War IV. Woolsey believes the Cold War was World War III and that we are now engaged with the enemies on three fronts. This war, he said, did not begin with the attacks on America on 9/11. September 11, Woolsey says, was merely when America discovered that three powerful and dangerous elements had been at war with her for some time. Woolsey points out that the enemies are (1) the Shiite Muslim fanatics who rule Iran and control Hezbollah, (2) the Islamo-fascists who rule Syria and previously controlled Iraq, and (3) the Wahhabi brand of Sunni Islamists who get their inspiration and funding from Saudi Arabia. Woolsey admits that these three enemies hate each other and occasionally kill each other in wars and smaller skirmishes. But he also believes they are fully capable of uniting against a common enemy and are doing so now in the Middle East. The battle in Iraq has seriously weakened the Islamo-fascist leg of this evil axis; however, World War IV is far from won, he suggests. Because Saddam Hussein's regime has been defeated and the Iraqi people once again have their country, the risk now, according to Woolsey, is that we simply pack up and go home and pretend the war is over. But it is not over. One partner of the Islamo-fascist camp in Iraq has been dealt with; but the other member, Syria, is very much a threat to the region and the rest of the world. Syrian officials have said lasting peace in the Middle East depends on Israel's "total retreat" from territories it acquired in the 1967 war. Syria claims that once Israel accepts the so-called right of Palestinian refugees to return to Israel proper and retreats to the 1967 boundaries, "all Arab countries will be willing to sign a peace treaty with Israel. Total retreat in exchange for total peace." The question of Syria hiding Saddam's weapons of mass destruction and harboring members of the Saddam Hussein-led Iraqi regime has never truly been answered. Many reliable reports have surfaced about Iraqi leaders hiding in Syria, and US National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice doubts Syrian promises that no such weapons crossed from Iraq into Syria. At the offices of at least eleven Palestinian terrorists organizations in Damascus, a Syrian official said he considers those offices "cultural information points." He warned that shutting them down would accomplish nothing, adding that terrorism in the region would end once Israel handed back "occupied" territories and allowed the "return" of Palestinian refugees. With its Shiite Muslim fanatics ruling the country and its surrogate terrorist group, Hezbollah, in southern Lebanon, Iran has presented to the world that it is moving toward reforming its government, even as it prepares weapons of mass destruction. US and Israeli intelligence have uncovered evidence that Iran will be ready to go nuclear in the near future. Under the pretense of building a nuclear reactor for much-needed electrical power, Iran built a major reactor with the help of Russian technology and technicians. Intelligence reports indicate Iran also has two other reactors and facilities to convert uranium for use in nuclear weapons of mass-destruction. It is a know fact that Iran has a delivery system and short-range and long-range missiles that could deliver a nuclear, biological, or chemical warhead to Israel and any part of Europe. Israel has always claimed that Iran is the real threat in the Middle East. Israel has also urged Russia to stop transferring its nuclear technology and technicians to Iran. On a landmark visit to Lebanon recently, Iranian President Mohamad Khatami said that Syria, Lebanon and Iran will not simply bow to US pressure and warned America against creating a crisis in the region. President Khatami's three-day visit included talks with Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah leader. To the strains of songs about resistance and martyrdom and chants of "death to Israel," thousands of Shiites from all over Lebanon greeted Khatami at Beirut's sport stadium. Khatami's visit the first by an Iranian head of state since the 1979 Islamic revolution, allowed the Iranian president to express his backing for Hezbollah, a terrorist organization. "The third group, the Islamist Sunni, al-Qaida and the like-thinkers, are in many ways going to be the hardest to deal with, " Woolsey says. "They are fueled by oil money from the Gulf, Saudi Arabia principally. However, many of the are wealthy in and of themselves. They are present in some sixty countries in the Middle East region and are fanatically anti-Western, anti-Christian and anti-Jewish." Though the Bush White House and the US State department's diplomatic corps continually praise Saudi Arabia's cooperation in America's war on terrorism, many questions are yet unanswered concerning Saudi involvement in worldwide terrorism. Wahhabism, founded by Muhamad al Wahhab almost three centuries ago, is the religious and political philosophy embraced by the present government of Saudi Arabia and its ruling family, the House of Saud. Wahhab was a zealous Muslim revivalist who lived during the Ottoman Empire's early decline. Wahhab believed that Islam in general and Arabia in particular needed to be spiritually and literally repurified and returned to the true tenets of the faith. His Qur'anic literalism gave rise to a movement that sees itself as the guardian of "true" Islamic values. In 1818 the Turks broke the first Wahhabi state in what today is known as Saudi Arabia. Later the Wahhabis resurrected to provide the focus of Arab resistance to the Ottoman Empire which they considered degenerate and corrupt. In the chaotic years after the demise of the Ottoman Empire, those who embraced Wahhabism proved to be an able and fanatical fighting force, securing victory for Ibn Saud, their leader and founder of the present royal dynasty. The rest of Arabia was united and placed under the Wahhabist view of the world, man, law and Allah. The house of Saud owes Wahhabism for its very existence and the dynasty it has today. Consequently, it is understandable that the funding and inspiration for terrorism around the world come from members of the ruling family of Saudi Arabia. Considering all this information, Woolsey's perception that World War IV is now underway is remarkably viable. Woolsey's list of enemies, the Shiite fanatics who rule Iran and control Hezbollah, the Islamo-fascists who rule Syria and previously controlled Iraq, and the Wahhabi brand of Sunni Islamists who get their inspiration and funding from Saudi Arabia, is precisely on target. Israel's participation in Woolsey's World War IV comes into focus practically and prophetically as one takes a closer look at the region and the potential for biblical prophecy to be fulfilled. To understand the practical aspect of the situation requires evaluating the region's political activities. Woolsey' Islamo-fascists who rule Syria have consistently supported those who want to destroy Israel. In June 1967 the Syrian military might moved down from the north to attack Israel as the Jordanians approached from the east and the Egyptians came from the south. The Israel Defense Forces stopped this three-sided invasion at least temporarily, only to face another effort by Syria to overrun Israel's military in 1973 and 1982. Since these desperate attempts to destroy Israel, Syria has facilitated Hezbollah's operation out of South Lebanon and its constant attacks on Israel's northern border. Syria's refusal to close down the offices of at least eleven terrorist organizations in Damascus, its relationship with Saddam Hussein's regime, hiding of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and development of its own weapons of mass destruction have positioned the country for its part in World War IV. The Shiite fanatics ruling Iran have made known that they are still in charge of this hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism and that Iran is preparing for the battle with the "big Satan" (the United States) and the "little Satan" (Israel). With Russia's help, Iran has developed a program that includes biological, chemical and nuclear warheads, with a delivery system to take a major war to Israel and even to the European Union. Israeli intelligence has long said that Iran, not Iraq, is the major enemy in the Middle East. And now British and American intelligence agencies are beginning to agree. The Wahhabi brand of Sunni Islamism that controls Saudi Arabia and the interest of the royal family have the earmarks of the scenario pictured in Woolsey's World War IV. Saudi funding of terrorism around the world and in particular in Israel has advanced the cause of radical Islam and set the stage for future intensity on this front. Interestingly, the Bible speaks of the same three enemies as in Woolsey's World War IV. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel revealed the truth about Syria, referred to as the "king of the north" in Daniel 11:40-42. Daniel helps us understand that Syria may be the first Arab state to move against Israel as the seven-year Tribulation Period begins. Daniel alluded at Iran (Dan. 11:44) when mentioning the tidings out of the east." Ezekiel provided more information about the "eastern" enemy in Ezekiel 38:5. Biblical Persia, included in the list of nations rising up against Israel in the last days, in what we know today as Iran. Iran of today was called Persia until the 1920s. The writer of Psalm 83 included another list of nations that aligned against Israel at the time of the end. In verse 6 the "Ishmaelites" are mentioned as part of a coalition of nations. Saudi Arabia is where Ishmael traveled to after leaving his father Abraham and where Ishmael established the one nation God promised him (Gen. 17:20). The psalmist described the scenario for James Woolsey's World War IV in verse 4: "They have said, Come, and let us cut them (Israel) off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance." The stage is indeed set, the nations are in place and the curtain is about to go up on World War IV-or whatever the number might be.
  10. Wahabism is associated with perverted beliefs regarding Allah (Swt). Allah is personified and is referred to as physically sitting on a throne and as having hands, feet and other body parts. As regards the bidah (innovation) issues one can safely say that Wahabis have not eradicated any bidah that appeared after the demise of the Prophet (pbuh) but instead have served to re-inforce these innovations. NB: (To the Mods: Shouldnt this thread be moved to a more relevant forum?).
  11. Her surname is al-Rishawi. That is not an Iraqi surname. The chances are that one will find this surname to be Palestinian i.e. the woman and her brother (a former al-Zarqawi aide) hail from either Palestine or Jordan
  12. Ossetia North Ossetia aka Alania This was a despicable act irregardless of whether the victims were Muslims or not. May the souls of the dead hostages rest in peace.
  13. Al Manar Television are reporting that as many as 74 people have been killed and 364 people have been injured in the attack on the Grand Mosque at Kufa.
