  1. Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi (ha): One hears very disturbing news these days from the city of Al-Quds concerning the violation of the sanctity of Al-Aqsa Mosque by the Zionists. It is not permissible to keep silent about an issue such as the brutal assault on the Palestinian prayers and the incineration of some parts of Al-Aqsa Mosque by hundreds of Zionist soldiers which has repeated after 47 years. The extremist Zionists have become so insolent and shameless that, in addition to this violation, they have staged a demonstration around the first Kiblah of Muslims and have called for the demolition of Al-Aqsa Mosque so that they would be able to build a temple of their own in its stead. I extend my appreciation to some of the religious leaders and authorities as well as the people of the Islamic countries, including the prayers of the Friday Prayer in Tehran and other cities of Iran who immediately reacted to this desecration, and I urge the other authorities and the nations of the world of Islam and the free people of the world as well as all international organizations not to keep silent about these crimes, desecrations and sinister and dangerous plots and to utilize all of their capacities and capabilities to prevent these sinister and dangerous Zionist plots, “For thy Lord is (as a Guardian) on a watch-tower”. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (me): May God end oppression in all the world, and return Palestine to its rightful inhabitants. It must also be noted that we are 100% against such killings of people who were praying in a synagogue recently; this is not what God asks of anybody, and is most certainly to the contrary of the message delivered by the Mercy to Mankind (pbuh) . May God save the mosque from the Zionists destroying it, and free the oppressed of the world from the oppressors. Wasalam
  2. dear br. I am confused about what you mean- I read a bit of the risalah, and it seems very coherent, and to a similar level to that of Ayt. Sistani. If I did follow Ayatollah Waheed (ha) I would be able to deduce the rulings veryeasily, at least from the chapters I have seen. ws
  3. hahahahahahaha Actually though, when we have so many a'laam maraji (and many scholars have said there is no 1 clear mujtahid who is a'laam), then we are able to select one of the a'laam, and we have done our duty. There are others, but I only mentioned the four of the a'laam whose books are in English too. Oh and by the way Ali, I'm not sure- if it came down to smiles, who would win: Or ayatollah Waheed! :P
  4. Now, who wouldn't want a grandfather like this. Allah yarhama
  5. Salaaam I had a little browse on the web, and found this- the risalah amaliyah of the Great Marja, Ayatollah uzma Waheed khorasani: http://wahidkhorasani.com/English/Fatwa/Content/218_Book-of-Verdicts/219_THE-PRECEPTS-OF-TAQL%C3%8FD Out of all the a'laam maraja currently living, there are four with English risalahs/ books of law which I know about: Ayt. Waheed Ayt Khamenei Ayt Makarem Shirazi Ayt Sistani There are other mujtahids who have books of law, but these are the four I know of in English who are regarded by the Qom hawza to be a'laam. So, you can know follow the marja with the most beautiful, lovely smile in the world <3
  6. Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon. I am very sorry to hear about your loss dear brother- indeed, losing a pious relative would never be something easy, though it certainly will not leave us fearful for their station near their Lord: يَا أَيَّتُهَا النَّفْسُ الْمُطْمَئِنَّةُ﴿٢٧﴾ ارْجِعِي إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً مَّرْضِيَّةً ﴿٢٨﴾ فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي﴿٢٩﴾ وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي ﴿٣٠﴾ ‘O soul at peace!Return to your Lord, pleased and pleasing!Then enter among My servants,and enter My paradise!’ Dear brother, can you share when the night of her burial is, so inshAllah the muminen can pray salaat wahshat? Ws
  7. (salam) A lot of ignorant people, and instigators of fitnah like to associate ayt. uzma waheed khorasani with certain fake views: namely, having a dislike to Ayt Uzma Khamenei and Imam Khomeini, Having the Yassir Habibi approach to our sunni brothers. So, I made this thread for people to realise the silly views that some people have, that there is some sort of schism between Ayt. Khamenei and this other great faqih, because some on either side may have false views on these issues. So, here is the relevant proof: http://wilayah.info/en/meeting-between-ayatollah-mohsin-araki-and-ayatollah-wahid-khorasani/ ^about his stance on our Sunni brothers http://theiranproject.com/blog/2014/09/11/ayatollah-vahid-khorasanis-son-visits-supreme-leader-in-hospital/ ^his son and ayatollah khamenei, when the leader was in hospital. Sayyed Taheri Kharam-Aabady relates that he visited Ayatollah Shaykh Waheed Khorasani after the demise of Sayyed Ahmad al-Khumayni, and witnessed him being strongly affected by his demise, so he inquired about the reason behind being this affected? Shaykh Waheed Khorasani replied: Sayyed Ahmad Khumayni visited me a few days before his demise, and I asked him: Did Imam Khumayni visit you after his death in the world of true visions? He replied: Yes, I saw him once and asked him: How is the afterlife? The Imam (ra) replied in answer to his sons inquiry: O Ahmad, I have passed, but it was a very difficult matter. Sayyed Ahmad continues and says: Then my father moved/waved his hand (in a certain way) and said: O Ahmad, even the movement of your hand in this manner, will follow you to this world and you must prepare yourself for answering about the reason for you moving your hand in this manner. Sayyed Ahmad then says: When I asked my father, what must we do then? He replied to me thrice: Have good conduct/be pious. نقل السيد الطاهري الخرم آبادي انه زار المرجع الكبير الشيخ الوحيد الخراساني بعد وفاة السيد احمد الخميني، فرآه متأثراً بشدة، فسأله عن سبب هذا التأثر؟ أجاب الشيخ الوحيد الخراساني: زارني السيد احمد قبل وفاته بأيام قليلة، فسألته: هل رأيت الامام الخميني بعد وفاته في عالم الرؤيا الصادقة؟ أجاب: أجل رأيته مرةً وسألته: كيف هو عالم الآخرة؟ اجاب الامام (رحمه الله) عن سؤال ولده قائلاً: يا احمد، لقد عبرت انا ولكن الامر صعب للغاية. يقول السيد احمد: ثم حرك والدي يده وقال: يا احمد، حتى حركة يدك بهذه الصورة، فسترافقك هذه الحركة هنا ايضاً وينبغي ان تعد جواباً عن علة تحريكها بهذه الصورة. تابع السيد احمد نقل رؤياه الصادقة هذه فقال (رحمه الله): عندما سألت والدي: ما الذي ينبغي عمله اذن؟ قال لي ثلاث مرات: كن صالحاً. Oh, and his condolence messages to literally the most pro Imam Khomeini men in Africa: His Eminence consoles Shaykh Zakzaky over the matyrdom of his three sons protesters in Quds day rally. During his phone call, Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani referred to the sufferings that occurs to the pious persons when they are trying to promote the truth and said: According to our tradition, if a disaster happens to a person and he/she recites the verses of Isterja’a (Retrieval) Allah will give him/her three things, his Salawat, his mercy and his guidance. Then he recited the verses of Isterja’a: “who, in adversity say: ‘we belong to Allah and to him we shall return – on those will be prayers and mercy from their lord, those are guided.” Al-Baqarah (156-157) الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُم مُّصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّـهِ وَإنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ ـ أُولئكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِّن ربِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُهْتَدُون So yeah, people should stop being so gullible and falling into the Yassir Habib traps of making it out like there is schisms between the grand maraji. And lastly, take a look at this beautiful face:
  8. What does need to be mentioned thouh to clarify is that taqlid is wajib, unless one is a mujtahid. Dear brs and sis. Dont try and reason out hadiths as u arent qualified to do that, it is wajib to do taqlid, so you must do that, otherwise one will be committing a sin unless they do ihtiyat between the mujtahids (which is nearly impossible).Ws
  9. (salam) Two beautiful videos to share with you all:
  10. Baradar jackson inqilabi for rahbar of shiachat... dont worry, the real rahbar still has authority over him..... :p
  11. Bump... Anybody- I'm not inclined to believe anything about our Mujtahids without anyone explaining why....
  12. Wa alaykum as salam wr wb If the sunni br was not to listen, then would it be obligatory to do amr bm and nahi am each time we see them doing the action erroneously e.g. in wuzu or salat? A second question is this: A person has got in him a number of sajdatus sahw for previous errors in prayers. Hoe should he perform them if the sajdatus sahw is to be done after salat? With regard to music in doctors surgery question, i read on ayt. Sistani website that it is halal.to go to a cafe etc. Where there is haram music: It is permissible to visit public places where music is being played, even if it is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings, provided that one does not intentionally listen to it: for example, passengers on course, waiting areas for visitors, public parks, restaurants and cafes, etc —even if the music played there is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings— because there is no problem in hearing forbidden tunes without intending to listen to it. So this confuses me as it seems ayt. Sistani site says u dont need to take action in order to not hear, like asking them to turn it off- rather, it seems he says it's ok as long as u dont listen to it. Ws
  13. (Wasalam) Sorry br. I did not mean with regard to ame bil maroon, I mean when the clinician is a non muslim. My question is that is it wajib for me to ask them to turn off the music in the surgery (as it is haram for me to listen to such music). My question was with regard to when the clinician is a non muslim, so it's not to do with amr bil maroof. I.e. If it is possible to get them to turn off the music until I leave the surgery. Also, when you mentioned about informing a Sunni, is it wajib to tell a Sunni that certain actions they do according to their own fiqh is haram (e.g. Food they eat, folding arms)? Ws
  14. Salaaam Sometimes,a dentist or doctor has music which is deemed haram playing in the background. Is it wajib to ask them to turn it off, if they are non muslim, and the patient is not listening, only hearing? Ws
  15. (salam) I find it interesting that they only showed a picture of the knife being held to his head, and not an actual picture of his head being cut. DailyMail, as usual, up to its business of showing Islam awfully. So the kid probably didn't have his head cut, they were probably just posing for the camera. However, this in no way means that tatbir is at all a good action. When we google the word shia, all that we see is pictures of people smothered in blood. Now, do you really think that our dear Muslim brothers in faith will have a good view (and be willing to revert) to Shi'ism if that is all they see? Sure, we may not be firing the cannon. But in this sort of action we are giving them extra gunpowder- they would have fired anyway, but it can go a lot further now that it would have. I don't see why we need to cut ourselves to show loyalty, or even how cutting yourself does show loyalty? Loyalty to the Ahlul Bayt (as) is through obeying their command, building taqwa. Sure, some scholars in the past have allowed it. And in no way do we disrespect the great maraji like Ayt. uzma Waheed Khorasani (ha) in this. But, in the modern times, the effect on the school of thought is so great, because of what the enemies of the Ahlul Bayt (as) can do with this "gunpowder" that we supplied them with. This is why Imam Khomeini (ra) said it is haram in the current time. There are many other acts we can do on this day- we do not need to do blood letting. In Kerbala on Ashura, many, many people were killed in explosions one year. How about we donate our blood, so that others can inshAllah benefit. We have so many rituals, such as latam, listening to the masaib. Hitting yourself with a sword though- I find it hard to see how one actually benefits from it, in any way- and this is something I would like somebody to answer, because, to me, I see literally no benefit whatsoever to yourself spiritually, or any physical way. ws
  16. Dear br. Could you provide a few examples of this, if that's Ok with you? ws
  17. Dear brother, I wonder what makes you think you have the right to criticise the respected mujtahid, and why you think it's OK to tell people to be wary of such a respected + eminent scholar, who has this respect from many of the maraji. I don't know your credentials, you could be a scholar for all I know, but I don't think you have the right to tell people to be wary about what this respected mujtahid says, unless you yourself are. This is because so many mujtahids have spoken very highly of him (and many top ones have met him, which gives us this vibe). Even if some high ranking scholars were to tell people to be wary, the fact is that so many see him highly, so it isn't for the non-high ranking alim to make these sort of judgments on an internet forum. ws
  18. Ws Thanks for reply br. but is it classed as "talking". I.e. does replying to the salam make the salat batil or not? Edit Answered by br Narsis. According to ayt sistani, one should reply with only "salaamun alaykum" if they say "salaamun alaykum wa rahmatAllah". I.e. it is only required to reply to the salaamun alaykum part. Also, it does not make salaat batil to reply to a salaam during the salaat. ws
  19. (salam) Peace be upon you oh Abu Abdullilah. Peace Be upon you oh son of the prophet. May Allah not make this the last time of our ziarah of you. Peace be upon you, a master of martyrs, upon the "aqilatu Bani Hashem" (oppressed lady of Bani Hashim) Sayyida Zainab (as) . Peace be upon the brother, the sons, the companions and family of the master of martyrs, whose blood was shed for the son of the lady fatima. Whose broken rib was not what she was crying for on the day when the enemies of God approached the Imam (as) . Her tears fell for the one whom the Prophet: "Hussain is from me, as I am of Hussain" Peace be upon Ummal Banneen, the lady who raised her children for the servitude to the Imam of their time May God eternally curse your enemies, oh family of the prophet. This beautiful day is nearly upon us. Though it breaks our hearts, we eagerly wait for the whole year. We await this great day with an eagerness that we can never match at any other time of year. Every sincere tear that falls, every sincere piercing wail, every inner movement within our hearts when we hear the poetry and tragedy being recited, is among the best of worships. May we be like Ummal Banneen (as) who raised her children to sacrifice themselves for the Imam of the time (as)- may we sacrifice ourselves for his movement, and for the sake of our tears, be safe from falling into satan's traps. Please keep all mumin brs. and sis. in your duas when you raise your hands with your eyes tearful. Remember the oppressed of Bahrain, "Saudi" Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Afganistan, Pakistan- wherever there is a Muslim oppressed, let us pray for them. Let us pray for God to cure the sick, help those in need. To bless all of our maraji, especially the Leader (ha), and protect them. And to free our dear Ayatollah al Nimr, and all other imprisoned mumineen. By the right of Ali Asghar's blood- oh Allah, accept our duas. Wasalam
  20. Salaam is salat made batill by replying to a salam. Is should one reply with wa rahmatAllah wa barakatu to the person initiating salam in salat if they also say salam wa r wa b? Wz
  21. (salam) I have literally come across the greatest photo ever: Ayatollah Uzma Saafi Gulpaygany (ha) kissing the hand of his student... And they say our maraji are not humble, are racist, and have arrogance. I think not... Big up Ayatollah Saafi!
