    A few things to contemplate from Isaiah.  A few things I have contemplated.
     
    Isaiah

    26:13 O Lord our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
    This sounds like the muslim.

    15 Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
    This sounds like Israel

    14:1 once again he will choose Israel
        and will settle them in their own land.
    Aliens will join them
        and unite with the house of Jacob.
    2 Nations will take them
        and bring them to their own place.
     

    14:20 for you have destroyed your land
        and killed your people.
    I had made a note in my Bible about how this sounded like Syria 2012.

    A Prophecy Against the Philistines (also known as the palestinians)

    28 This prophecy came in the year King Ahaz died:

    29 Do not rejoice, all you Philistines,
        that the rod that struck you is broken;
    from the root of that snake will spring up a viper, (Zionism ?)
        its fruit will be a darting, venomous serpent.
    30 The poorest of the poor will find pasture,
        and the needy will lie down in safety.
    But your root I will destroy by famine;
        it will slay your survivors.

    31 Wail, you gate! Howl, you city!
        Melt away, all you Philistines!
    A cloud of smoke comes from the north,
        and there is not a straggler in its ranks. (the defeat in 1948, 1967 ?)
    32 What answer shall be given
        to the envoys of that nation?
    “The Lord has established Zion,
        and in her his afflicted people will find refuge.”


    A prophecy against Damascus:
    17 “See, Damascus will no longer be a city
        but will become a heap of ruins.

    A prophecy against Egypt:

    19:2  “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—
        brother will fight against brother,
        neighbor against neighbor,
        city against city,
        kingdom against kingdom.
    3 The Egyptians will lose heart,
        and I will bring their plans to nothing;

    4 I will hand the Egyptians over
        to the power of a cruel master,
    and a fierce king will rule over them,”
        declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.

    the cornerstones of her peoples
        have led Egypt astray.
    14 The Lord has poured into them
        a spirit of dizziness;
    they make Egypt stagger in all that she does,
        
    15 There is nothing Egypt can do—
        head or tail, palm branch or reed.


    24:5 The earth is defiled by its people; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.


    26:11 Lord, your hand is lifted high,
        but they do not see it.

    Anyone is welcome to share the positives that the palestinians achieved while they were living in the land.  I just want to stick to sharing positives though.  I want this thread to take a positive tact.
     
    I actually realized sometime later last night, after I had re-read, and re-posted, that the palestinians never were really in possession of the land.  It was ruled by the British and it was the British mandate that provided for accommodating the Jewish refugees after the war.  So maybe that is what needs to be discussed.

    Modest Muslim reacted to Striver forIslam in Khamenei Or Sistani?   
    Both of them are amazing, amazing men, who are a gift to the 21st century. 
    I was in the taqlid of Ayatollah Syed Ali Sistani and changed to the leader, Syed Khamenei later on.
    Why? Well, both were highly intellectual and both are great Marjas, but I changed my taqlid because of Syed Khamenei's fatwa against cursing the sahaba and wives of the Holy Prophet. It was this fatwa, which I believe is an amazing way of bridging the gap between Sunni and Shia Muslims today. This fatwa truly amazed me and I embraced it immediately because (although many Shia brothers and sisters would disagree with it for their respective reasons), I knew that it would have a profound effect on Sunni/Shia relations. Many Muslims will come towards the Shia school of thought because of this fatwa, inshallah..
    But that's just one reason. The other reason is that Syed Khamenei is true leader, and that's what I needed and wanted in this precarious time in history. Whereas Syed Sistani is more of a scholarly figure, and appears to be more confined by the geopolitics of Iraq and the people in his office etc. 
     
    Yeah, so that's my reason. Hope you guys see my view point...

    Good analogy.  Can you imagine how muslims would feel if Jews took over Mecca and even claimed Saudi Arabia as their own?
     
    and I'm with you, I'm not defending all the action of the government of Israel, but I do understand how they got to this point, and I do believe that if they would be allowed to live in peace, they would leave the rest of the world to live in peace.  I believe we could see great changes in the way the government governs if others were willing to lay down and cease their own hostilities towards Israel.  I think then they would see and receive the benefit from Israel that others in the world have received.  Not saying I could not be wrong, but it sure would be nice to at least see people give it a try.

    Modest Muslim got a reaction from Hassan_S in This Doesn't Make Sense   
    It not could but can work without an infallible because the man has been taught enough. It's just like we teach a small boy and then he takes his master's degree. What does he do then? He starts with his own research and becomes a professor. Similarly, God taught man enough by sending prophets. Then he sent Imams for completion of education. Now man is capable of finding his way out and if doesn't do that then he's an idiot.
     
    You want a wasila? There's a wasila. We have Qur'an unchanged and interpreted by Imams. We have hadiths and a proper system to check them out. We have Ayatollahs who know the depths of religion. What do you want else, man? Do you want a representative of God to teach you? That's not necessary. We don't a representative to teach us.
     
     
    Yes, representatives of God are to arrive but they'll arrive to impose Islam on the infidels, not to teach us anything. Representatives have taught us enough and now we're able to get guided but it's our fault if we stay misguided. 
     
    Sunni Muslims preferred a fallible over an infallible however they could chose the infallible. The infallible of our time is in occultation and he'll come back to fight, not to preach.
     
    If two Ayatollahs differ at some point, we must see who is the most knowledgeable of two of them to follow that more knowledgeable. Moreover, we have our own brains to use and other sources for guidance (like Qur'an, hadiths etc.).
     
    Thus, guidance is everywhere and easily available but it's us who ignore. God is indeed above than us all.

    I believe insulting them by name will not really help much nor will it raise your level of spirituality or awareness. If we read many of the passages and Ziyarat of our Imams and Prophets, peace be upon them all, we would see that we are grouping la'anat on those who opposed them. Generally speaking, this is a much more efficient method than naming one or two who have took away the rights of Ahlulbayt. We all know what those impostors, hypocrites and Kufars will get in the day of judgement.
     
    Send la'nat on all those who have opposed them by using the phrases in the Ziyarats, dua'as, etc. All this naming and finger pointing will do is bring more fitna, and at the end of days which we are in right now, we cannot afford to fight even more. We need unity brothers, not merely faith.

    Seriously, how can some of you understand what is going on in Syria when you still have not realised that abu 3antar is simply joking and actually mocking Wahabis. All those others here who continue to question why the Shia support Syria obviously do not know anything about Syria. 
     
    Syria like all Arab countries has been a dictatorship for over a thousand years, this can not change overnight. So all these ignorant Shias who simply support the "Rebels" because Assad is a "Dictator" really need to get educated in politics because this is not a legitimate reason to support the oppossition.
    Syria needs reform and Assad had already began reforms when he first came into power.  If the opposition was peaceful and really after democracy then everyone would support them. 
     
    These "rebels" who slaughter Men, women and Children like goats, while screaming "Allahu Akbar" are not peaceful, reform demanding folk. They could not care less about freedom and Human rights. They want to wipe out the state of Syria because it is:
     
    Secular Allied with Iran opposed to Saudi Arabia and friends Has a "Rafidi" president protects all ethnic and religious minorities
    Modest Muslim, I would love for you to go hang out with your "rebel" friends. Good luck coming out alive. we don't support Assad because he is one of our Allies. We support him because we support the Syrian state and its Institutons. We believe in reform like in all countries not a violent sectarian revolution. We support Syria because we as Shias know exactly what the game they are playing is. If you support the opposition then you support the takfiris who are blowing up Shias in Iraq everyday
     
    What are Bashar al Assads good works? Hmm lets see

    Welcome to the scariest job interview ever! LG terrifies applicants by faking massive meteor crash through 'window' that was actually an ultra high-definition TV screen
     
    Applicants for a job interview with LG Electronics in Chile had the scare of their lives when the company played a cruel prank on them that has been turned into an amusing TV advertisement.
     
    To promote just how life-like images appear on the company’s 82-inch ‘Ultra HD’ TV, LG created a fake office in which one of its screen was positioned to look like a window.
    Four unlucky applicants – two men and two women – were then filmed in the fake office being interviewed for a job with the company. 
      Applicants for a job interview with LG Electronics in Chile had the scare of their lives when the company played a cruel prank on them that has been turned into an amusing TV advertisement
     
     Terror in the sky? The poor unsuspecting job applicant has the fright of her life as something appears to light up the city skyline
     
    To begin with, the interview process seems perfectly normal as the interviewer shakes their hand and starts to look at their resume.
    But then the cityscape outside starts to change, the blue sky turns black, a meteor emerges from the clouds and suddenly the city explodes. 
     
    The combination of high-def images and sound is – apparently - so realistic that each of the four interviewees freaks out, panicking and screaming as they see what they think is their city being destroyed.
    Next the lights go out and the poor unsuspecting victims are left in the dark for a couple of minutes to add to the drama.

     Welcome to the scariest job interview ever! Company play cruel...  The commercial starts with the fake office being created and a 82-inch 'Ultra HD' TV being fitted to look like a window

     Suddenly the city is destroyed by a meteor and the interviewees start to freak out at what they've seen
     
     The end of the world as we know it? The interviewee doesn't know how to react to what they've just seen
     
    When the lights go back on, the door suddenly opens and in walks the LG team behind the prank to congratulation the poor unsuspecting targets.
    The interviewee reactions after the prank are just as animated as some scream and shout, while others are quick to see the funny side of things and are probably just grateful that they haven’t just experienced the apocalypse.
    It is a cruel but entertaining prank which does a highly effective job of promoting LG's ultra high-def televisions.
    However, some comments online by those who have seen the ad claim the whole process was faked. They claim actors are playing the parts of applicants and interviewers to promote the company's latest television. Either way, it's not yet known which is true.
    This type of marketing is called a prankvertisement and since the clip appeared on YouTube on Monday it has been viewed more than 700,000 times.
     Survival instincts: Next they are plunged into darkness unsure if the world as they know it has changed forever
     Everything okay! When the lights go back on, the door suddenly opens and in walks the LG team behind the prank to congratulation the poor unsuspecting targets

    I am sorry that someone has decided to defame the Patriarch Noah, without looking at the Scripture that they are misusing from Genesis 9:
    20 And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard.
    21 Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent.
    22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
    23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
    24 So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him.
     
    This has been commented on plenty of times and it doesn’t have to be a Christian comment. --- It has been studied, tested, and experimented with, that the way fermentation happens is for bacteria to start the process.
    --- If you take ‘whole milk’ as it comes from the cow and cool it to perhaps 40 degrees, which is about where most refrigerators are set, it will keep indefinitely.
    If you allow it to reach 50 degrees even once, this allows bacteria to start working and it ‘turns sour,’ --- once the process starts you can’t stop it or reverse it.
     
    There had been discoveries of foodstuffs and fruit juice found in caves or caverns that were not exposed to outside air, and at a cool moderate temperature, where there was no bacteria to start the ‘spoiling process.’
     
    --- It gives this description of the creation in Genesis 1:
    6 Then God said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
    7 Thus God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so.
    8 And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.
    9  Then God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so.
    10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
     
    --- This dividing of the waters caused the waters above to be a canopy for the earth, giving a ‘greenhouse effect’ on the earth. --- The sun was filtered through the water canopy or ‘vapor barrier’ so the rays of the sun would not hit the earth directly.
    --- In the flood, that is where the water fell from. --- after the flood, growth was good and Noah perhaps harvested his grapes and made grape juice, but was not aware that the sun had a different affect on the earth, so the grape juice became intoxicating, and he drank it. --- It would then be ‘sour wine,’ but drinkable.
     
    Notice that when Ham came to see his father, he found that Noah had ‘become uncovered in his tent.’
    --- (He was not running around naked, --- He was in his tent, and became uncovered no doubt,while he was sleeping.)
     
    Had Ham been a modest person, he would have simply covered his father, before he went out, --- but he left him there and went and told his two brothers, Shem and Japheth. --- Notice the different and honorable reaction in this verse:
    23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
    --- What could be more modest and honorable than that?
     
    When Noah heard what his younger son Ham had done, he pronounced a curse on Ham’s descendants and said they would be servants to Shem and Japheth.

    Asalamualaikum,
     
    I wanted to  create dedicated thread on classifying and understanding Ahlul Sunnah Wa Al Jammah comprehensively. I noticed many Shi'is not being able to distinguish between an orthodox sunni and a wahabi/salafi.
     
    This is a brief outline of ASWJ, hope members can expand it. 
     
    Sunni Theological Schools: 
     
    1) Ashari 
     
    The Founder Abu al-Hasan al-Ash'ari was originally a Mutazilite, and his school was essentially the introduction of some Mu'tazilite principles into mainstream Sunni theology.
     
    The Asharite view holds that:
    Complete comprehension of the Unique Nature and Attributes of God is beyond the capacity of human reasoning and sense experience. Although humans possess free will (or more accurately, freedom of intention), they have no power to create anything in the material world as this is entirely the province of God. This doctrine is now known in Western philosophy as occasionalism. Knowledge of moral truths must be taught by means of Revelation, and is not known a priori or by deduction from a priori propositions or by sheer observation of the world. It is permissible for a Muslim to believe and accept that a proposition is a moral truth based solely on the authority of a consensus of authorised scholars (ulama). This is known astaqlid ("imitation" in religion).
