  1. Limitation of questioning ! who would like to accept such a belief or religion !! as someone who believes that the covenant continued through Muhammad as the prophet of Allah and the twelve imams after him, as it was promised in the Bible already, I would never accept such a limitation.
  2. The jurists believe, based on the hadithes, it is better that men have some covering during sex. This is a preference not a must. You can refer to your marja.
  3. Is it really so hard to perceive that Rasulullah is submitted to the will of Allah the same as the twelve imams after him ?
  4. Scaling, describing, comparing is one of the important tools of humanity for discovering the truths. The same humanity understands Allah through his signs and manifestations. One of the greatest signs and manifestations is the existence of caliph of Allah on the earth. Caliph of Allah does not invite people towards himself, he invites them towards Allah and he is himself the great sign of Allah in the universe so that people perceive the greatness of Allah through him when they say "Allah is greater". Caliph of Allah is like Kaba, people themselves gather around Kaba for dignifying and worship
  5. The problem is that you consider it an absolute power, an absolute knowledge, an absolute infallibility. These are all shirk akbar. There have been always a minority of Ghali Shias who believed in an absolute power, knowledge or infallibility. In fact the mainstream Shias consider great power, knowledge, infallibility for Rasulullah and then the twelve imams after him, not an absolute power, knowledge or infallibility. There is a big difference. No Shia says that there is no difference between Rasulullah and Allah ! except the ghali mushrik ones. What you say is a shallow and su
  6. You say it is shirk because you do not get the purpose. Yes if one says that Rasulullah is the hand of Allah, or eye of Allah, this can be shirk, depends on the meaning. There is a famous hadith in the books of Sunnies that Shias also agree with. I do not know how they ignore this hadith ! We should not simply condemn people to shirk akbar without investigating what they truly mean. "My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I s
  7. Yes exactly. This is very minimal that laymen Shias do tawassul to them only for the worldly things.
  8. We do not have to consider whatever we do not understand it as shirky. Exactly this is the point. Before calling this or that shirky we should ask about the reasons !? It has nothing to do with shirk ! So we should improve our knowledge about religion to understand well what is shirk and what is not. If you consider such things shirk, then Quran and hadithes are full of shirk !!
  9. 1- Shias believe that Rasulullah and the imams get aware of the people and specially their followers. There are many Sahih hadithes in Kafi and elsewhere. That the deeds are presented to Rasulullah and the imams, of course whatever Allah wills and permits. Even Sunnies have hadithes about that deeds are presented to Rasulullah. Sometimes this may be called that the caliph of Allah is the eye of Allah or the hand of Allah or the ear of Allah of course not literally. This means that some of the names of Allah manifests in the caliph of Allah. This is a little complicated issue. If caliph of
  10. Even if burning alive is really considered as one of the punishments for example for homosexual intercourse, if I were a judge I would never dare to do so ! because as I said Ali ibn abi Talib did not burn the wrongdoers alive or at least there are one or two vague hadithes about this. Most of hadithes show that they burnt the dead bodies not the alive bodies. Or Ali executed by gas not fire itself. Anyhow we are not infallible and we are just trying to discover the truths among so many hadithes. Burning alive is not mentioned as a form of execution for the sodomy in the Islamic
  11. Well, to tell the truth most of what I have heard and read from the authentic hadithes in the books of Shias and the view of Shia jurists is that in some occasions Ali ibn abi Talib burnt the dead bodies after execution. For example : there is a Sahih hadith in the book Kafi that at the time of second caliph a gay person was arrested because of homosexual intercourse. Umar asked the elites what to do with him, Ali proposed to execute him by beheading and then burning his dead body. Also Ali executed the followers of Abdullah ibn Sabah by gas (produced by fire), not fire itself. Also
  12. In fact Press-TV is not established for self-criticism. The mission of Press-TV is not so. What would be the point that they establish a purely English media to criticize themselves while most of Iranians do not speak English ! If they want to criticize themselves, they use their internal Persian media for their internal issues. For sure Iran has many shortcomings and no one claims that it is perfect and for sure Press-TV itself has shortcomings. The mission of Press-TV is to highlight the other side of the story. So you are free to listen, watch, compare and think so that you can ha
  13. In the view of Arabs being old itself on it's own was a value. The tribal values of Arab nation. While in the view of Islam ........ Those who captured and occupied Fadak and refused and rejected Ali and Fatima can not be honest.
