  1. I would recommend having a look at the following articles, which were written by a research team associated with Ayatollah Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani (ha). https://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa1027 http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa4761 A few highlights of these articles include the following: "In the early period of Islam also, a number of the enemies of Islam conspired against it by first accepting Islam and then turning away from it so as to weaken Muslims' faith. In order to prevent this threat, Islam prescribed capital punishment for apostasy,
  2. Brother, you are ignoring my reply to your question(s) and bringing up completely new ones. I'll reply to these points once you address my response to your original questions. As far as your points on WF, first of all, calm down. I purposefully did not reply to those points because there are others on here more knowledgeable than me who can do a far better job with the particular details on that issue. And you tell me I have my "fingers in my ears" and I assume I am a "supporter of the Iranian government," Uhh, ok...
  3. Brother thuglife, The problem with this video and others from similar mentalities is that they are speaking about topics of which they have little knowledge. Studying Ibn Arabi, who has written literally thousands upon thousands of pages, is just like studying any other subject in the hawza: you need proper teachers, resources, and should spend time with the subject for a considerable amount of time. All of those who have done that come to opposite conclusions, i.e. Ibn Arabi is NOT a pantheist (believing everything is God), an enemy of Ahlul Bayt (as) (on the contrary, some believe he was a
  4. Well brother, your question didn't have a question mark, so I took it as a statement, not a question. I have no problem answering it: no, I do not believe in relative morality in the Western sense. But in Islam there does exist, according to some narrations and as can be understood from certain verses like the one you quoted, the idea that as societies change, certain laws can also change. For example, in the never-ending chess debate, there is a narration in which Imam Sadiq (as) states that chess is forbidden because his society knew it as a gambling tool. Therefore, some fuqaha state that i
  5. Brother, you know full well that a claim requires evidence. Your response reminds me of the whole theist-atheist discussion of "prove God exists" (atheist), followed by "prove to me He doesn't exist" (theist). Surely you can see how your claim requires proof? Let's not forget we are talking about Qur'an and its tafsir here. Interpreting the book of Allah (swt) is not a light matter…so, again, do you have any evidence for your statement?
  6. The verses he quoted do not directly show that God changes rules, but they reveal that hukm in its ultimate sense belongs to God, which implies that He can change it if He desires. The verse I quoted, and verses about abrogation, show that part of that ownership is in fact changing laws at times. Also, have you read the individual tafsir of each of those verses in al-Mizan? He may actually discuss the issue using other verses. We shouldn't say for sure until we have read each one. At times Tabatabai (ra) left certain discussions for one particular place in his tafsir to avoid repetition (see f
  7. This is not completely true. We know that during the Prophet's (saws) own life, laws were changed through abrogation. We also have verses like the following: And [i have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you. And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, so fear Allah and obey me. (3:50) So the point of Allamah Tabatabai (ra) stands as valid.
  8. I am not "narrating" it. I was quoting you. And now you are changing it. Your original post says that her forehead was struck. Now you are saying it was her "head." Which is it?
  9. Brother, this was the hadith you posted: "Zainab (sa) turned and saw the head of her brother, then hit her forehead on the front part of the Mahmil, until we saw blood coming out from under her veil." If she was wearing standard hijab, her forehead would be exposed. So in that case, her forehead would have simply bled, and there would be no need for mention of blood coming "from under her veil," unless she struck the part of her head that was covered by the "normal hijab." However, the narration does not say that she struck that part of her head. On a side note, what is your opinion of S
  10. His character aside (I've never even met him), just looking at his posts on his Facebook page is very disturbing and reveals his mentality. Here are some recent examples: "If all Maraji Taqlid rule that Tatbir is Haram. We say goodbye to Taqlid, not Tatbir." "I find myself in love with every weak Hadith. I wonder why?!" "The sacred ritual of Tatbir in itself is Mustahab. However, due to the war against Tatbir from all sides and governments, it becomes Wajib to preserve and protect this sacred ritual. Tatbir is Wajib." When questioned about this, he followed up with: "I do not follow
  11. Bismillah Perhaps the best way to address this topic is to address the "controversial" verses head on. Unfortunately in our very non-academic, instant gratification obsessed modern world people tend to just want quick, easy answers without really properly looking into things. In the case of the controversial "kill them wherever you find them" (9:5) verse, this is exactly what has happened, but fortunately the solution is very, very simple: read the verses before and after it. So, let's have a look. 9:1 [This is] a [declaration of] repudiation by Allah and His Apostle [addressed] to the po
  12. So if the announcement was delayed, people were prevented from knowing it was Eid, and therefore fasted on Eid, which is haram…?
  13. Where did we even imply we are "privy to certain knowledges" others don't know? On the contrary, I have shared videos, articles, book recommendations, etc in the hope that you all will actually study these issues and not make baseless accusations. You were asked by several posters to back your claims about Light Within Me. You never did. I asked you to explain your background reading in the field several time, and you ignored me. This would be a perfect time to bring credit to your case, as it would show you have researched the field and therefore hold some weight in the discussion! Yet we
