guest022017b got a reaction from _Fatima in Do Not Sacrifice An Ocean For A Few Drops
Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wasallam) said: “By Allah, this world in comparison to the hereafter is nothing but as though one of you dipped his finger in the sea. So ponder how much (of sea water), the finger returns with.” [Mishkaat]
Do not sacrifice for a few drops for a complete ocean.
guest022017b got a reaction from JawzofDETH in Write Your Letters To The Imaam Of Our Time (as)
with all due respect to everyone's posts here
here is some thing to keep in mind
the reason we have these people today which many people called for their death by the Imam, is because a long time ago when the Imams were around people began to slip and slide
The Imam is not a reset button where he comes and kills those who went to the limits and broken them, because as some people are calling for blood letting, they are not fixing the actual issue of why such people exist today, i.e because they began to believe that the answer was in power and force and not in softing the hearts and forgiveness and mercy, they became like every other nation who took hold of power and wanted to rule with an iron fist "my way or the highway" and hence their power and iron fists and indulging in the world corrupted them "the root of all evil is love for this dunya" , that is not to say that there isnt people who have achieved perdition and for whom there is no place of return except direct justice for their crimes, but the answer is not "kill all who think otherwise" and rule with force and take power and position, the idea is to distinguish truht from falsehood and fill int he gaps of where people are going wont today, and they are going wrong at the most important spots , they love this life and everything in it and its comforts, and their hearts have become hardened with hate and animosity and tribalism/sectarianism this is the epiphany of ignorance
nor is the Imam some person whom nobody can follow in his actions and behavior and hence get his insights and guidance to guide others, everyone here loves the Imam not because he has a heavy body and unmatachable strength , his unwavering courage
we love him because of his mercy, his purity, his justice, his forgiveness, his infalibility, his disconnectedness from this world, his love of God, his pure face which shines like the bright moon, his numerous tears, his love of Islam and his hate of all external heretics and inventors of new religion and disbelievers and hypocrites, this is what makes him who he is, anyone can pick up a sword or gun and run to their death, whether they fear death or not
but who can control their anger when wronged? who can fight without hate and anger in his heart? who can prove with his intelligence and knowledge all arguments wrong, and his arguments from the memorized quran and all knoweldge of its meanings? his knoweldge of the malakut which God gave him due to his disconnectedness from anything but he love of Allah
we can achieve some of these things as individuals and be shinning examples, not just sitting ducks living like everyone else and waiting for everyone to just "die" , we can change today and tomorrow right now, we can be shinning examples, but instead we take to the lovers of this life, the lost of this world, the haters of Islam and truth, the evil ones, we follow them and their music, their tv shows, their jokes and their perversions and we take them as friends we imitate them in clothes(to limits) we talk like them we listen to what they listen to , we argue how they want us to argue
where is our backbone? where is the Islam deeply rooted in our hearts so that nothing of their scares us or entices us? let them live their pathetic lives and chase after pathetic things of this life, but why do we want to be like them/ live in their cultures, their lies and their falsehood, and be "free" like them in their blind prisons , reading their "holy books" and imitating them while ignoring what we know is truth
we are weak and we are useless to our religion but to them we are their pawns, you want the Imam, change yourself now and for good and be the true Shia of Ali
guest022017b got a reaction from Muslim2010 in Imam Ali (A.s) Higher Than The Previous Prophets
One thing to say here, when Isa(A.s) returns and so does Imam Mahdi(ajtf)
Isa will be praying behind Imam Mahdi(ajtf) so clearly the status of Imam Mahdi(ajtf) is higher, although these are subtle differences and it is not for us to compare them as the Quran says
"....believe in the Allah and the Quran and the messengers....and we make no distinction between one another of them...."
guest022017b got a reaction from Waiting for HIM in How To Gain Power Of The Soul
Well this is quiet simple, the example is in nature itself and even externally it is there as well
Bear in mind this information is not to be used for haram things or to be used for the wrong way and wrong things, you are fully responsible before God for everything
It is just like going to the gym. You start weak and skinny and have to push small weight time and time again. However there is a difference, the muscles tire and need rest, while soul gets stronger and stronger immediately. Then you move to greater weights and push them, until you gain its strengths and so on and so forth
The other difference is that as your soul grows so does the nafs until it collapses and you gain its full power, or that power level
So basically your weights are your desires, and as you feel their urges, you must resist them, you must push them away as you push weights away. Once you do this you become stronger spiritually, and this spiritual strengths is shared with your physical senses and physical strengths.
Also anything haram is also another opportunity to grow, so when you feel some urge for something you know is haram, you must resist it, and you gain the power of the soul over the nafs by resisting it.
So when difficulty comes your way welcome it with open arms and defeat it.
if you feel yourself get angry, defeat it by not getting angry,m if you feel jealousy or pride defeat it by not getting jealous or not getting proud, if you feel doing something you know is wrong ignore it and resist it, and you will gain that power and slowly and slowly you will become a spiritual mammoth.
As this grows it spreads its energy to your body, you become stronger, you become smarter, you need less sleep, you need less anything of this life, and you become more conscious and inclined to God of course because you perceive more, and as well as the universe you defeat it and master it.
This is the bottom line. Anything which harms your soul and oppresses your soul(i.e weakens it) especially haram things must be avoided or your setting chains upon your soul, otherwise you will grow and become stronger.
So now the definition of evil becomes apparent. Evil is anything which oppresses your soul, and good is anything which overcome your nafs.
guest022017b got a reaction from haideriam in Imam Ali (as) And Khalid Ibn Walid
There is so much deception and lies which has been branded with truth, and so much truth which has been branded with lies. Inshallah may Allah hasten the reapperance of mahdi(ajtf) because truth has been mixed with lies at the hands of those who consciously are out to deceieve and cause confusion by using names and places and books.
The enemy is a mastery with averice and craftiness. They are story tellers in nature, and twist truth. Their mouth have become twisted from all the lying.
guest022017b got a reaction from a human in The Most Difficult To Please His Majesty The Lord
Bismillah Praise be to Him for what He is which cannot be described
I thought i would let people know, God is EXTREMELY difficult to please, i am not criticizing Him, but i am just informing you, so you know so that you dont become too hopeful
I have spent almost a decade going through extreme scenarios to please Him and gain His approval, but bear in mind you are competing with Prophets like Muhammad(pbuh) and Jesus(phub) and Moses(pbuh0 and etc and the Imams and most notable Imam Hussein for his extreme sacrifice in such a sweet and perfect manner
I know it sounds like i am complaining, but i am just letting you know, and before somebody thinks maybe i was doing it wrong, bear in mind that i have done it all
I have prayed nights in 100's or rakaaats, i have read munajaats and Jawshaan's daily , i had led myself to extreme mortification, and its not that there was nothing i did get some results which are always there, but to actually go to truth in its pure form, is very very very difficult
Getting mercy from His Majesty(SWT) which cannot be denied, is not because our end deserved something, but it is because He is Most Mercifull, its not that we earned Mercy, but we simply received it so dont let that fool you
But to ACTUALLY PLEASE HIM, is very very very very very difficult, and besides He has already got from teh Human race what was required from their covenant namely trhe sacrifice of Imam Hussein and the efforts of the Imams
But other then that that book is sealed tight, and anyone that gets anything in the future, any special treatment will be from the Mercy not from the deserving side.
Just letting you people know how it is, and believe me when i say that i have done EVERYTHING a person can do, i have served His servants, i had fasted days on end, i had given every last cent, and i had even approached Him with full sincerity and He is witness to this i am not making it up, but to actually achieve anything with God is long sealed up, all there is left is to get to Heaven, but those who know truth are not satisfied with heaven, if anyone tasted any of the closeness to God would give up even Heaven to get some of this most addictive Drug which the old arifs called "wine" in their poems
But anyway the truth is this, and yes we can achieve Heaven and most of us will, but Heaven to me personally is boring
In fact if u gave me this whole universe and the heavens i wouldnt be satisfied because that is just how much this pleasure of closeness to God feels that nothing can compare to it
But anyway if we get any of it, we get crumbs which only leave us depressed because we cant have more, and once this life is over that will be it, no more chance to get close to Him anymore
Anyway God is almost impossible to please in our day and age, we are the last and missed out on so much
guest022017b got a reaction from ZaqiYumani in Are The 313 Scholars?
Hadith say that the 313 will know everything on everything, they will be informed of every knowledge. This is partly from their study, but majorly will be knowledge inspired by God. If a person reached a certain level of faith and truth in their heart God has promised to remove all veils from them so that all knowledge will be available, from this life and the barzakh(etc malakut).
"......and I shall let him see the minute things of knowledge so Satan may not enter upon him." Hadith Qudsi about those close to Allah SWT which will be the characteristics of the 313 and also they will be , after the wars and justice, elected and set by Imam Mahdi into 313 position of power to rule over the world with justice, so they will be required to know everything in order to run the world justly.
guest022017b got a reaction from HamzaTR in Sermon On Difficulties (A Must See)
i hope people act upon this instead of just agree on this , its not an easy thing to do , and much much easier said then done
in actions today people are light years away from this they go the opposite way and look for ease in life and Islam
guest022017b got a reaction from HamzaTR in Any Bosnian/serbian/croatian/montengrin/albanian Shias?

guest022017b got a reaction from HamzaTR in Philosophy Of Acceptance Of Prophethood & Salawat
when you think about God in our minds, how can we say that what we think of God that it is precisely God?
we cannot and we cant, and hence we have the attributes of God with which we refer to God the names and attributes of God are our connection with God
and what are the names of God? the most merciful, the most kind, the most loving etc but relative to us, this is how we perceive God, but this is not God, this is only the connection between us and God, He is unique and cannot be comprehended and to say that He is only this or a group this(the names and attributes) would be limiting Him
and hence this is where the names and attributes come in, and it allows us to know Him by them, however we are creatures that we know and understand by example, that even if we knew the names it wouldnt be enough, we need to understand its meaning, and hence why examples are important
and the best example are the Imams and the Prophets, they are the connection with God and us, by their perfection of the soul they serve to remind us and make us recognize God, they are the Hujjat of God the proof of God
see if we didnt have the naems and attributes of God and if we didnt know their meaning, what would we have to even know of a God? the answer wuld be simple and that is the Imams and Prophets, however they are most closest to us because they are also humans and they shown grand amounts of patience and mercy even to the worst enemies of God, hence we know God by them, they are the names of God as there is a hadeeth from the Imams including Imam Ali who says "we are the names of God"
and this which i described above is the meaning to it, the names of God are what we invoke and repeat to remind us of God, and knowing their life we can relate to God and what it means to be merciful
also in the Quran Allah(swt) says that He taught Adam(a.s) the names
guest022017b got a reaction from Tonks in ?
marja or not, if a person cannot see wrong in this, then how can is see him as a person?
just because they are marja, if they have personal bias they can prove anything they want using whatever sources it requires to prove it
i think it is a matter of personal opinion, finding the "evidence" is as easy as any other field , such as when a person wants to believe in darwinism then he/she can go to great lengths to "prove" with complicated evidence their case, despite that looking at it macroscopically or microscopically you might get a different conclusions
this is where personal bias overshadows reason
a child is not able to make such a decision for them selves, they do not understand the scenario and what is going on, while another person could be putting that child in danger, besides what is this blood lust that they seem to have? why do you need to let your blood out? does that make you a better person? does it make you a better shia? does iot make you a better "mourner?"
the answer to all of these is no
the lessons of kerbala are not about blood they are about perfecting the characters and being patience in adversity, it has nothing to do with blood letting, if you want to let blood then go donate blood there is plenty who need it and the methods of donating blood is clean and safe and actually helping people , as opposed to looking like some dim witted barbarian with blood all over ur face and some childs and a huge knife in hand
guest022017b got a reaction from -Enlightened in Prayer To Fulfill Any Wish From The Prophet
It is narrated from the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) that one who recites ten rakats prayer on Thursday and in each rakat recites Surah Hamd and Surah Tawheed ten times each the angels will tell him: Ask whatever you want and it shall be fulfilled
Have your legitimate wishes fulfilled. This does not work for wishes which are haraam or evil(i.e to hurt somebody or get revenge)
