  1. (salam) People have 'assumed' that manaf or munaf was the name of an idol.. this was assumed because there were many by the name of 'Abd-e-Munaf'... wassalaamun alaikum
  2. ^ (salam) Not the Brother's fault.. he only copied and pasted what someone else posted on their website.. JazaakAllah for the clarification :).. wassalaamun alaikum
  3. (salam) JazaakAllah Brother Online PDF file Occultation of the 12th Imam, by Jassim M Hussain Assalaamun Alaikum
  4. Wa 3alaikassalaam So the believers can't curse the enemies of the Prophet(saww)? Does the Quran prevent the believers from cursing the enemies of the Prophet(saww)??.. I think not :) Tabbarra (dissociation of oneself from the enemies of islam) comes under the furu-e-deen.. rules that are compulsory to follow and are mentioned in the Quran which aren't included in the usuul-e-deen.. wassalaamun alaikum
  5. I need the 'use to use gel but now don't but use desi oil instead' option up there :)
  6. Wa 3alaikassalaam If some sahaba of the time were against the family of the Prophet(saww).. then shia are correct to dissociate themselves from these sahabas Verse 23 of Sura 42 reads {42:23}: "Say O Muhammad to mankind: I do not ask of you any reward for it, but love for relatives, and whosoever earns good". According to traditions when the Holy Prophet was asked as to who were the relatives alluded to in the verse, the Holy Prophet said, "Verily, the reference is to Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Husain". There are quite a few.. however.. I think this will suffice Verse 55 of Sura 5 reads {5:55
  7. India is going to win the second one cuz the matches are fixed.. so was the last series
  8. (salam) Maulana Ishaq on Shia-Sunni unity This video is a must see.. I believe the person giving the speech is a deobandi.. not entirely sure though.. unfortunately its only in urdu.. wassalaamun Alaikum
  9. Hmph.. remarkable indeed.. I have to say I am quite impressed by the way points that you raised.. may I ask you which sunni school were you following?.. wassalaamun alaikum
  10. (salam) There are some very good points in this post.. never thought of some myself.. I was quite surprized.. its the feeling that you get when you come across 'new material' :)... wassalaamun alaikum
  11. (salam) I find it a bit weird that people tend to hold Ayesha's status higher than those who strictly followed the islamic code of conduct and didn't cause any unrest or dissention in the ummah.. I don't suppose the deobandies would have supported the ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto if she rebelled against the Saudi king for having ties with the Americans... then they downplay the atrocities that were committed during the time of war and the civil unrest that followed afterwards.. it gets unbearable sometimes.. just my opinion.. wassalaamun alaikum
  12. Wa 3alaikum Assalaam I don't mean to make fun.. but if you don't believe in the people who 'cursed'.. then why accept their views on other people at all?.. its like saying.. I don't call you my brother because you have been cursed by a shiek who I don't consider to be a shiek at all... just an example :).. wassalaamun alaikum
  13. (salam) I heard this explaination from a speaker very recently and it was regarding the word 'ahl' or family... the explaination was that the word 'ahl' (when used in the Quran) refers to people who 'deserve' to be in the family or those who have 'absorbed' the qualities/characteristics of the leader of the family (usually the father or the grandfather).. for example... regarding Hadrat Nuh(as)'s son... he was regarded as a 'na-ahl' [its urdu :)] or 'not being in the family' of Hadrat Nuh(as) because he didn't obey his father.. Allah(swt) uses the word 'ahl' over there as well.. so.. even tho
  14. (salam) You shouldn't compare Bukhari with Muslim here because both the ahadith are from Sahih Muslim and followed his criteria of 'saheehness'... wassalaamun alaikum
  15. (salam) Huh??.. Its Zaid who said "No, by Allah..." not the 'later narrators'. and if it wasn't authentic... why'd they include it in a sahih book. You are actually suggesting that the compilor of the book took a hadith that 'could have been partialy fabricated' and thats why you reject it... why call it a sahih when it has some lies in it? :) There was another question which this brother asked... if the wives were included and they were purified of any and all irregularity (rijs)... then why did Ayesha fight a civil war leading to the death of thousands of muslims.. why is it that she and H
  16. (salam) Brother newnew... here is what I was refering to in my previous post http://www.shiachat.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=73920&hl=# You said it in post #4 Just refreshing your mind :)... wassalaamun alikum
  17. (salam) Umm.. wasn't it you who said that the sahih books aren't 'perfect'... even though the companions don't lie... they could have 'forgotten' something... so.. the ahadith that you quoted is missing a line.. and that line is in the hadith that I quoted... if the hadith is quoted in sahih muslim.. its authentic by sunni standards... if the companion was truthful.. then his narration was 'worthy' of being accepted in a sahih book.. both ahadith are considered authentic by sunni standards... one is missing a line.. while the other has it.. so I quoted that one.. its more related towards the
  18. (salam) Thought I should add this hadith Sahih Muslim Book 031, Number 5923: Yazid b. Hayyan reported: We went to him (Zaid b. Arqam) and said to him. You have found goodness (for you had the honour) to live in the company of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and offered prayer behind him, and the rest of the hadith is the same but with this variation of wording that lie said: Behold, for I am leaving amongst you two weighty things, one of which is the Book of Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, and that is the rope of Allah. He who holds it fast would be on right guidance and he who ab
  19. (salam) Bibi Fizza(as) was a maid given to bibi Fatima(as) by the Prophet(saww) after this incident Since you brought up this topic brother.. 003.061 YUSUFALI: If any one disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!" By saying that it was wrong for Bibi Fatima(as) to ask for her father's wealth.. Abu bakr implied that she lied.. but how could she lie when the Prophet(sa
  20. (salam) No... wassalaamun alaikum
  21. (salam) So does that mean that we HAVE TO do everything that is made halal for us.. I mean.. I don't eat many fruits and vegetables that are halal for me.. what about eating meat.. thats halal.. but some people think its too luxurious.. so they won't eat it.. does that mean they are committing a sin by not eating meat?.. I highly doubt that. Plus.. the verses suggests that the Prophet(saww) forbade himself something to please their wives and Allah(swt) disliked it... which would mean that Allah(swt) wouldn't let the wives the pleasure to have any control over His Prophet(saww)... because...
  22. (salam) Bro Ali and Sis Heaven... I think.. if I am mistaken.. then ban me :P
  23. (salam) Alhamdulillah brother.. great story and a wonderful site.. you are putting me to shame :).. the sections on the 'Scienticists of Faith' and 'Objections?' are particularly interesting.. thanks so much for sharing.. wassalaamun alaikum
  24. (salam) Just thought I should clarify something.. most parent do act the way you described not because they are racist.. its because they want their son/daughter-in-law to belong to a culture that they can relate to.. even muslims from different countries don't get married that often.. I remember an egyptian christian lady that I work with telling me that she wants her son to marry someone from egypt because (even though living in N.America).. she would sometimes like to talk to her in egyptian arabic :)... wassalaamun alaikum
