    humanbeing101 got a reaction from notme in Muqtada Al-Sadr calls for Assad to leave again   
    With the greatest of respects, most people here commenting are not from Iraq or haven't lived in Iraq for long periods of time. To understand Sadr is to understand the politics of the Iraq and how it relates to its people. Sadr isn't a religious scholar but he has never claimed to be one, his stance is a political and not religious one. Although at the end of the end, everyone is entitled to their opinions.

    The article calls him a leader, not the leader. If he's got even a handful of followers, it's not incorrect to call him a leader. 
    But I get the feeling he thinks Assad's resignation would be the best way to avoid total world war. It's worth considering, regardless of your opinion of the messenger. 
    Considering, not taking as law.

    Do you know how authentic the article is? It makes claims but I'm not entirely sure if they can be linked back to Ayatollah Sistani. I know he opposed America's presence in Iraq but he also had disagreements with the Mahdi Army.

    LOL! Hahahaha, I hope this makes it CLEAR to Americans, because you literally have to spell it out for some of them, that attacking Syria has got NOTHING to do with caring about the Syrian people, its amazing how much of a cognitive dissonance many possess, its like they forget all about the crimes they or their allies commit when they justify attacking another country on humanitarian grounds.

    There is a relevant speech by Sayed Hassan Nasrallah where he says the only good Trump's government brings is they will expose the truth and admit these things.

    ^^ Seriously though, now all the "rebels" have to do is to launch an attack, blame the government and get more military action, and the US trusts the most BS sources on the ground from what we can tell in the corporate media. Doctors that have faced terrorism charges in the past, are now considered sources, SMH. Why don't they send journalist to Idlib, oh wait I forgot, they'll probably lose their head.

    Wonder how Russia will respond. I can guarantee if Assad goes, ISIS is taking over and that'll be the third failed intervention by NATO, yet they feel they have the authority to continue to topple governments.

    humanbeing101 reacted to Ibn al-Hussain in Is taqiyyah only permissible in certain situation?   
    Unfortunately Taqiyyah has not only been incorrectly understood by us, but it has also not been utilized correctly by the Muslim community (particularly in the West). The narrations described Taqiyyah as a shield of a believer - something which itself entails that you are in some sort of a battle/engagement and have to currently defend/protect yourself. What follows is a summary of some of my notes taken on the topic and hopefully it will give the readers a bit more insight into it.
    The general definition given by jurists is that Taqiyyah is to do or say something that is not correct, in order to protect one's life and wealth, or of your family's, from an external harm. In many cases this can be expanded to beyond just yourself and your family and can include other Muslims, or even the religion itself. The justification of Taqiyyah - although there are narrations for it - is most fundamentally in the intellect itself. The human intellect itself dictates that when you have two acts, one being important and the other being more-important, that you discard the important for the more-important. For example, having to choose between doing Wudhu like a Shi'a, when there is fear of you losing your life - the intellect will tell you that saving your life is more important and not worth losing for not performing the Wudhu correctly. Of course we have many, many narrations that mention the importance of Taqiyyah or show us how the Imams themselves performed Taqiyyah that are important to read. Some of the narrations may even come across as really surprising for some Shi'as (I read a few narrations for some individuals a few weeks ago and there were some people who I could tell felt uncomfortable, confused and shocked).
    The permissibility of Taqiyyah as a practice can be independently discussed in both Usul al-Din and Furu' al-Din. For example, are we allowed to commit Shirk out of Taqiyyah, or curse Imam Ali? These would be an example of doing Taqiyyah in Usul al-Din. As for Furu' al-Din, there are many scenarios and you would have to figure out if it is permissible for us to do things such as praying like the Sunnis, doing Wudhu like them, dealing with non-Muslims a certain way etc.
    Taqiyyah can be divided from a few other perspectives as well. From the perspective of its legal status it is divided into:
    Wajib – to prevent a harm which is imminent or currently present Mustahabb – is when if one does not do it for a long time, it will eventually lead to harm (like not having good ties with the Sunnis for a long period of time) Haram – anything that involves you killing someone else, or anything that brings serious harm to the religion or weakens it in the eyes of others (like destroying the Ka'ba, or a scholar consistently drinking alcohol in public) Makruh –  is when taking on the harm and dealing with it is better than doing Taqiyyah. Or doing Taqiyyah in an act that itself is Mustahab (like folding the arms during prayers, if you are amongst a group of Sunnis who themselves pray with their arms on the side) Mubah – the act is equally allowed (there is a famous narration of two men of Kufa who were kidnapped and threatened to curse Imam Ali or else they would be killed. One of them denied and was killed, the other cursed Imam Ali and was let go. Imam Baqir (s) said that the person who denied was someone who hastened towards heaven, but the person who cursed Imam Ali was a Faqih - well versed - in his religion) From the perspective of its purpose:
    Khawf (out of pure fear) Mudarat (out of tolerance for someone - Taqiyyah Mudarat is generally used to refer to our relationship with the Sunnis) Ijbar/Ikrah (being forced/pressured into doing something - like taking the Hijab off or shaving beard) Kitman (to conceal something, particularly true under tyrant and unjust regimes) From the perspective of the person doing Taqiyyah:
    Normal person in a society Influential religious status in society (for example, it may be permissible for a normal person to do Taqiyyah in a certain scenario, but not be permissible for a person of a high and influential religious status, if their actions will lead to the religion being weakened in the eyes of others) From the perspective of who you do Taqiyyah from:
    Non-Muslims (Rulers or normal people) Rulers of Ahl ul-Sunnah Judges and jurists of Ahl ul-Sunnah Normal Sunnis With Shi’as (Rulers or normal people) When you take into consideration all these perspectives, look at the narrations on Taqiyyah and see to what extent some of the Imams went to do it and how they did it and for what reasons, only then can we have a proper understanding of when, how and where we should be employing Taqiyyah.

    humanbeing101 reacted to Sindbad05 in Br Shamsi and a Shia debate.   
    Bro, good points but hide some information as well, He mentioned a verse of Surah Toba, where it is said that Follow the Muhajirin and Ansar in goodness not in evil and Br. Shamsi says that to follow them in everything but he should say that follow them in "goodness" but for Ahlebait it is written that "Obey Allah, Obey the Messenger and those among you with authority". It clarifies that Ahlebait are right in every way but Muhajirin and Ansar's following is conditional with goodness and they are not to be followed when they rejected Ghadir and Did wars against Imam Ali a.s during Jamal.
