  1. If threads that matter had such number of replies I would come on this site more often.
  2. I am always amazed by the existence of these discussions whilst Hadith al Ghader exists.
  3. Salamu Alaikum ^, I searched online too but couldn't find it, Don't think you'll find such a book online anyway. If I were you I would search for it in the libraries when going to zyara, hope you find it inshallah.
  4. Salamu Alaikum, The prince of the believers knew he would get killed and by who without a doubt, praise be to Allah who gave the prince this knowledge. But when Allah wants something to happen, the Imam will obey and accept, as he accepts the will of God like we all have to. If it was time for the prince to leave this world then so it is, and God knows best.
  5. Salamu Alaikum, people always focus on finishing the 100 ruk'at that I feel there is no sprituality in it. The reason we do an act of worship is to gain closeness to Allah through it, not only wanting the rewards. Similarly with the Quran, many try their hardest to finish it on time and may Allah reward them for that, but studying the tafseer of one verse will bring you closer to Allah much more than reading the whole Quran whilst not reflecting upon one verse. I think we need to focus on using the acts of worship to build a connection with God rather than doing it because it is recommended. That should be the intention of the servant, and God knows best.
  6. Salamu Alaikum, All sadaqat are rewarded equally as far as I know, if the intention is pure. The only time I came across a Hadith which speaks about a sadaqah being better than another is a sadaqah which is given private, rather than it being given in public and God knows best.
  7. ^salamu Alaikum, That's a very good question. I have never come across a Hadith covering the criteria of an Alim, only ahadith about their status and their rewards. An عالم (alim) comes from the word علم (ilm) which means knowledge. So, in the Arabic language at least an alim refers to a knowledgable individual. Regardless of what conclusion they come to with their knowledge, how their knowledge is used and what intention they hold behind gaining knowledge, they are an Alim, because they hold ilm. However, I'm sure most of us would rather call a person who uses his knowledge for good, acts accordingly to the knowledge he has gained, has humility and taqwa whilst having that knowledge etc as a alim. However I'm not sure about the approach of the Ahlulbayt towards this, and God knows best.
  8. Salamu Alailum, I agree with you. It is highly important for a Muslim to be politically aware, from the time of Rasool Allah (s) until today we are constantly being attacked, and one must become politically active for defence. Like what has been said above, it is quite impossible to not be involved in politics, with so many events happening around the world, as well as getting closer to the time of the reappearance of the 12th. Muslims have been told by the prophet and his holy household to stand up for the oppressed, which in our time at least means becoming active on the political stage, we cannot help Bahrain or Iraq unless we take a political stand. As the famous Hadith of the holy prophet states: A Muslim that wakes up and is not concerned with affairs of Muslims, is not a Muslim. I don't think there are justifications or reasons to why a Muslim should keep himself away from politics. Which I've never seen happen, as in the current political state of the world, the Muslim nation in particular is being majorly targeted, one becomes involved without thinking about it.
  9. Salamu Alaikum, I disagree with sister Hameeda. I think the best choice of covering or hijab is that which covers most, regardless of where you live. If you find your self in a community which is accepting and open minded then you should wear the abaya.
  10. Some beautiful narrations i would like to share: The holy prophet (s) said: when i was sent up to the heavens, Gabrial held me on his right shoulder, then i saw a red spot, it's color is is better than that of saffron, and it's scent is more beautiful than Misk and i saw there and old man with a helmet. So i said to Gabrial (as): what is this red place in which it's better than saffron and it's scent is more beautiful than Misk? Gabrial (as) replied: this is the place of your Shia and the Shia of you successor Ali (as). I (s) said: who is the old man with the helmet? he (s) replied: Iblees. I (s) said: what does he want to do with them? He (as) replied: he wants to take them away from the wilayah of Ameer Al Mo'mneen (as) and invite them to fornications and immorality. so I (as) said: get up (in Arabic Qom (قم) was used) you cursed one, so he went and took part in their money, children and women. You have no authority over My Shia and the Shia of Ameer Al Mo'mneen (as), so it was named Qom. source: علل الشرائع by Sheikh Sadouq volume 2, page 544, section 373 _______________________________________________ In those times Iran, was known as Al Rei. A group of men from Al Rei came to Imam Al Sadiq (as) and said: We are the people of Al Rei. The Imam replied: Greetings to the people of Qom. The men then said: We are from the people of Al Rei. The Imam said: Greetings to the people of Qom. The men said again: We are from the people of Al Rei. And the Imam replied: Greetings to the people of Qom. The Group of men would repeat their words, yet the Imam gave them the same reply. Then the Imam (as) said: Allah has a haram and that is Makka, the holy prophet (saw) has a haram and that is Madina, Ameer Al Mo'mneen has a haram and that is Kofa, and we (the rest of Ahlulbayt) have a haram and that is Qom. And a woman from my lineage will be burried there, her name is Fatimah, whoever visits her will have paradise. source: Bihar 216/60
  11. Unless anti-Assad individuals cannot bring any evidence or proof that Assad himself (i repeat: himself) has done anythting oppressive, then I reccomend you sit yourself down. We need to look at who he is figting. So many rulers are either selling themselves and their dignity or bowing down to America and it's allies, we should thank Allah we have someone who has the guts to stand up, and fights terrorism for three years. Firstly, when goverments like Saudi and America are fighting someone, that means they are fighting hypocrisy, murder and most importantly, terrosrim. I understand some of the memebrs here have family memebrs under attack or have been, we should blame who did it to them. My cousins in iraq have been completely ignored and disrepsected by the Iraqi army when they went to volunteer, a fight broke and they went home. Even though i am anti- Maliki, i don't blame him for this particular issue. Secondly, sons of Omar are fighting him, whoever they fight, are on the right side. If not, then to a limited extent. one of the memebers said above: "He is an oppressor, a tyrant, a Ba'athist." - I am confident enought to say the lineage of Omar and Mu'waya alongside America will never fight someone with those characteristics. I assure you, follower of Ali (as). Lastly, i think we should see what the majority of Syrians have to say, at the end of the day, they are the ones living there and fully acknowledging what is right and wrong in terms of the Syrian situation: http://rt.com/news/163228-syria-presidential-vote-assad/ http://rt.com/news/163696-assad-win-president-syria/

  13. Referring to the OP, i agree that we can't compare our little knowledge to the maraji. Then again, there are things that are obvious to all of us.for example, what Ahlulbayt (AS) say about cursing in public.
