    The Light reacted to GermanShia in Why We Shi'as Can Not Tolerate Each Other?   
    mashaAllah thats it. people told me often how stupid i am or that they will find me and kill me because i am against religious unity with sunnis etc.
    i experienced so much violence amongst shia. how can it be that mosques became bloody fight places. its not normal what i experienced in only 1 year
     
    unity with sunnis seem to be a pillar of deen for many.  but shia who dont share mainstream view: la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah better buy safety west
     
     
     
     
     
     
    (i have to correct: my definition of shia here is wrong. real shia of course wouldnt do it)

    The Light reacted to Khalilallah in Why Does Khamenai...   
    I have watched loads of his speeches, he supports Palestine, when Palestine has mosques named after Muawiya and they didn't even ask for Iran's verbal support. However I have never once heard him say anything about the shias; east from Iran, Shias such as those who were martyred or made refugees under the Taliban rule, or the shias in Pakistan who were terrorized or any of the shias who were martyred by the Buddhists.
     
    Also Syria and Lebanon has a very low Shia population but Iran gave it all the support needed, however Afghanistan, Pakistan have a huge Shia population and they are oppressed but no one in Iran cares to help them? especially when these people place all their hope in Iran, since it is the capital of Shia Islam, especially when those forgotten shias have given 1000s of martyrs for Iran, in Syria, Afghanistan.
     
    Or what about the poor afghan shias who come to Iran for work but they treated like animals, they were not allowed in parks and were treated like how the blacks were treated in America before the whole movement, and now I have heard that every Iranians have the right to stop foreigners and ask them for IDs, no sane person would stop some stranger and ask them for ID, only those deviant youths will do that to annoy poor Afghans for fun, the way I see it is that it is a green light for allowing discrimination. The oppression of Afghan shias is widely known, isn't it embarrassing for a nation that calls itself Wilayet e Faqih? and calls Khamanei Wali amr muslimeen?
     
    I have never been to Iran, but every Shia I know who has been to Iran has faced insults like "Afaghana" or "Afgan e Kisafat" etc...
     
    I am not against Iran's policies and I don't expect them to be like Ali's government but why do they claim so? and why do they call khamanei "wali amr muslimeen"?
     
    Btw when an argument comes up about Shias vs Sunnis or shias vs anyone, I always take Iran's side, but between us shias; why are we treated differently when we come from the same school of thought?

    Why does he ignore the Shias in Afghanistan, in Pakistan.
     
    He talks and criticizes Israel, US etc however he ignores the crimes happen and happened to shias in Afghanistan, Pakistan and oriental countries. Why does he not at least speak for them or at least recite fatiha for them?
     
    And why does he not criticize what the Saudi's are doing to Baqey? the place in Medina where 4 of our 12 Imams are buried?
     
    This is why I think Iran is using the Shia Madhab as its personal propaganda since Iran the biggest Shia country in the world.
     
    And also I have noticed that Iran puts national interest before Shia interests since it has supported Shias when it was in Iran's gain however they have ignored oppressed shias and their holy sites when it was not in Iran's interest.
     
    Can someone please explain this? I might be wrong.

    The Light reacted to Qa'im in Are These Points True (Video)   
    I'll give the Salafis one thing - they know how to produce videos that appeal to different learner styles. Written references, videos, sound bytes, translations, scary music, scary Rafida. Even I'm getting goosebumps!
     
    I'll respond to the written references, since they're the only points of any substance:
     
    #1. At 1:49, they have references to titles and not actual ahadith. This is somewhat misleading, because it is literally judging a book by its cover. I encourage you to look at the established narrations in these chapters, which can be found here and here.
     
    Firstly, it's worth asking: if an Imam were to know when he was going to die, is that shirk? Absolutely not. Imam `Ali (as) was informed by the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) that his beard would be dyed by the blood of the stab wound he would suffer. This isn't unique to our sources. It is widely narrated in Sunni sources that the Prophet (pbuh) said, "This shall be dyed red from this". We also see ahadith about the tragedy of Karbala' narrated in Sunni sources, which would also imply that al-Husayn (as) knew when, where, and how he was going to die. I see no theological issue with the Imams being given the foreknowledge of their deaths.
     
    As for them having the choice to die, this is saying that the Imams (as) died voluntarily, and accepted what Allah had written for them. This is the hadith from the chapter:
     
    عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن سيف بن عميرة، عن عبد الملك بن أعين، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: أنزل الله تعالى النصر على الحسين عليه السلام حتى كان [ ما ] بين السماء والارض ثم خير: النصر، أو لقاء الله، فاختار لقاء الله تعالى.Several of our companions from Ahmad b. Muhammad from `Ali b. al-Hakam from Sayf b. `Umayra from `Abd al-Malik b. A`yan from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام.
     
    He said: Allah تعالى sent support for al-Husayn عليه السلام until it filled that which was between the heaven and the Earth. Then he was left to choose: victory, or meeting Allah. So he chose to meet with Allah تعالى. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 671)
     
    Again, I see no issue with this. Imam al-Husayn (as) knew when death was written for him, but Allah gave him a way out. And the Imam chose to humbly obey his Lord's instruction. If this is shirk, then what about the hadith of Moses (as) beating up the angel of death and overturning Allah's decree? Is that not choosing where you die?
     
    As for the point that "nothing is hidden from them", we have narrations all over al-Kafi about the Imams not having complete knowledge of the ghayb. References are available upon request. Anyway, the chapter has one established narration, and again, there's nothing controversial about it:
     
    محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن ابن محبوب، عن ابن رئاب، عن ضريس الكناسي قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول - وعنده اناس من أصحابه -: عجبت من قوم يتولونا ويجعلونا أئمة ويصفون أن طاعتنا مفترضة عليهم كطاعة رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ثم يكسرون حجتهم ويخصمون أنفسهم بضعف قلوبهم، فينقصونا حقنا ويعيبون ذلك على من أعطاه الله برهان حق معرفتنا والتسليم لامرنا، أترون أن الله تبارك وتعالى افترض طاعة أوليائه على عباده، ثم يخفي عنهم أخبار السماوات والارض ويقطع عنهم مواد العلم فيما يرد عليهم مما فيه قوام دينهم؟! فقال له حمران: جعلت فداك أرأيت ما كان من أمر قيام علي بن أبي طالب والحسن والحسين عليهم السلام وخروجهم وقيامهم بدين الله عز ذكره، وما اصيبوا من قتل الطواغيت إياهم والظفر بهم حتى قتلوا وغلبوا؟ فقال أبو جعفر عليه السلام: يا حمران إن الله تبارك وتعالى قد كان قدر ذلك عليهم وقضاه وأمضاه وحتمه على سبيل الاختيار ثم أجراه فبتقدم علم إليهم من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قام علي والحسن والحسين عليهم السلام، وبعلم صمت من صمت منا، ولو أنهم يا حمران حيث نزل بهم ما نزل بهم ما نزل من أمر الله عز وجل وإظهار الطواغيت عليهم سألوا الله عزوجل أن يدفع عنهم ذلك وألحوا عليه في طلب إزالة ملك الطواغيت وذهاب ملكهم إذا لاجابهم ودفع ذلك عنهم، ثم كان انقضاء مدة الطواغيت وذهاب ملكهم أسرع من سلك منظوم انقطع فتبدد، وما كان ذلك الذي أصابهم يا حمران لذنب اقترفوه ولا لعقوبة معصية خالفوا الله فيها ولكن لمنازل وكرامة من الله، أراد أن يبلغوها، فلا تذهبن بك المذاهب فيهم.Muhammad b. Yahya from Ahmad b. Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from ibn Ra’aab from Durays al-Kunasi.

    He said: I heard Abu Ja`far عليه السلام saying – and with him were people from his companions: I am surprised by a community that acknowledges our wilaya, accepts us as Imams, and says that obedience to us is compulsory upon them just like the obedience to the Messenger of Allahصلى الله عليه وآله ; yet they break their proof (hujja) and dispute amongst themselves by the weakness of their hearts. They diminish our rights and blame those whom Allah has granted evidence to know us and submit to our command. Do you not consider that Allah تبارك وتعالى has made it obligatory to obey His awliya’ upon His slaves? How would He hide the news of the heavens and the Earth from them, and cut them off from the sources of knowledge that maintain their religion?! So Humran said to him: May I be your ransom, have you deliberated regarding what occurred from the rising of `Ali b. Abi Talib, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn عليهم السلام? They came out and rose up for the religion of Allah عز ذكره; how much they suffered from their deaths at the hands of the tyrants – they were defeated, murdered and overpowered. So Abu Ja`far عليه السلام said: O Humran, Allah تبارك وتعالى had destined that for them; decreed it, approved it, and necessitated it – it was beyond choice. It thus occurred and the knowledge of it had come to them from the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله. `Ali, al-Hasan, and al-Husayn عليهم السلام rose whilst knowing [the consequences]. By its knowledge, there were those of us who remained silent. Had they, O Humran, whilst facing what Allah عز وجل made them face and suffer defeat at the hands of the tyrants, asked Allah عزوجل to remove their suffering and implored Him to destroy the kingdom of the tyrants, He would have answered their prayers and granted it for them – then, the decree would have removed the tyrants and their kingdom would end faster than the dispersal of threaded beads under pressure. That which they endured, O Humran, was not because of a sin they committed or a punishment for opposing Allah, rather, it was a deliverance and a bounty from Allah, who wished for them to attain it. Do not allow them (i.e. the people) to take you away from the [correct] path. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 675)
     
    This is saying that the knowledge of their deaths came from the Messenger of Allah (pbuh), and the family of the Prophet knew that all of this would take place. But, they fulfilled their duties towards Allah and follow His decree.
     
    #2: What is "Fatuhat-e-Shia" (3:30)? Where is this book and who wrote it? Again, very misleading referencing.
     
    #3: At 5:43, it says that the Mahdi would resurrect `A'isha and punish her for committing adultery. Again, misleading. The only books I recognize here is Hayat al-Qulub and Haq al-Yaqeen, by `Allamah al-Majlisi, and the reference does not say that `A'isha would be punished for her adultery. It says that she would be punished for her accusation against Mariya al-Qubtiyya in the incident in Surat at-Tahreem. Look it up yourself. But instead of quoting a 17th century biography of the Prophet (pbuh), why don't they quote the hadith reference itself? Because the people who make these kinds of videos do not know their way around Shi`i sources, plain and simple. You won't even find a reliable narration which says `A'isha will be raised up by the Qa'im, it simply does not exist.
     
    #4: At 8:38, it says that the Mahdi would kill the Sunni scholars. But find the reference - neither volume of Haq al-Yaqeen even go to 527 pages. Even if it did, this is a 17th century work and not a hadith book. Our hadiths say that the Mahdi would start his fight against self-proclaimed Shi`as, followers of the Sufyani, and the polytheists. If you read our eschatological narrative, it's very clear that prior to his coming, very little of Islam will exist. The Prophet popularly said that Islam began as a stranger, and it would return to being a stranger. The Muslims of the end times will largely consist of hypocrites, following an Islam that is virtually unrelated to the original message. The deterioration of the Muslim world by the end times is very clearly described in both Sunni and Shi`i hadith literature.
     
    #5. The video ends by saying that Saqifa took place in the Prophet's Mosque, that Imam `Ali rushed to attend, that Ali gave his bay`a to Abu Bakr on the day of Saqifa, and that Muslim valued this hadith. Ok, but you won't find it in his sahih. And, on the contrary, Sahih al-Bukhari has a hadith that clearly contradicts this: in volume 5, book 59, hadith 546, `A'isha narrates that `Ali (as) did not give his allegiance to Abu Bakr until Fatima (as) had passed away, which is up to 6 months after the event of Saqifa. The fact of the matter is, Saqifa took place while `Ali was washing the body of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). It was started by the Ansar, who were looking to elect Sa`d b. `Ubada as their leader. It was interrupted by Abu Bakr and `Umar, and Sa`d b. `Ubada suddenly died (lol), and Abu Bakr was declared the Caliph on the spot. We know from Bukhari that there was a confrontation between Fatima and Abu Bakr, and that she remained angry with him until she had passed away. If anything, she's the original Rafidiyya.
     
    And Ali Musaaa's right, these videos are a waste of time.

    From one side the islamic society is mixed with western values. They see early marriage as something backward and it really angers me a whole lot. :angry:
     Islam encourages early marriage as a cure for young people, but it's the society that makes things hard for themselves.
    When a young guy eg, say 18- 21 says that he wants to marry, relatives and family members make fun of him telling him that first "higher education, then Masters, then a decent job and then you need to work a few years to earn some money in order to be eligible for asking a women's hand in marriage".  :realangery:
     
    It's completely injustice to do this to a guy who has sexual urges at it's highest in those ages. Isn't it?

    Whether Bibi Fatima's  (as) rib was broken or not, the behaviour of Umar bin Khattab towards her  (as) makes him an unjust person. 
    Everything is clear from your own books. It cannot be refuted. 
    As for Imam Ali  (as) not defending Bibi Fatima  (as), according to our narrations in the book of Sulaym bin Qays, as if I can recall correctly, Ali  (as) did grab from Umar's belt and slammed him to the ground and said, "if Rasullallah  (pbuh) didn't tell me to be patient, I would have killed you" as the narration says. I will post it if I find it Inshallah. 
    If in Sunni books, it does not say that Ali  (as) took action against Umar, it doesn't mean it never happened. Imagine Ali  (as) only having a few faithful and loyal sahaba's left on his side and the first Caliph Abu bakr having many people on his side. Dont you think Ali  (as) would be outnumbered? It is not astonishing to think that Ali  (as) did not do anything with Umar. In fact he was defenceless and had no other choice, but to be patient.

    Dear sunni brothers, 
     
    Although we bring proofs form your own authentic books that the wives of the messenger of Allah  (pbuh) is not included in the ahlul bait which are supposed to be followed and purified, but still you insist that wives are also included. 
     
    Let's say they were included. Ok?
    If Aisha was purified in that verse, then why did Allah (SWT) revealed Surah al tahreem in the holy Quran in which the two wives of the prophet (Aisha and Hafsa) are warned to a degree that Allah (STW) said He will be in war with them if they conspire against the prophet  (pbuh). 
    Then later on, She waged war against the imam of her time which in itself is kufr and a grave sin.
     
    So, if she was one of the purified ahlul bait and one of the greatest wives of the prophet  (pbuh), then why did she go against the verse of the Quran (33:33) and went out of her house waging war against Ali  (as) which is not a women's job to do.

    Aisha was at least 20 or 21 when she was married to the our Holy Prophet (SAW). There are some hadiths that proves that Aisha was at least 20 or 21 years old.
