  1. Salam

    Aap un ki kaun hein?


  2. B'ismehi t'aala Alhamdu ala ahle wassalaatu ala ahle According to information received here, with the dawn of the first day of Ramadhan 1428 [14 September 2007] Rawshni and Syed Ali Naqi Naqvi were blessed with one of Allah's choicest blessings, a daughter. Well-wishers of Rawshni are requested to please keep the family in their prayers. Wassalaam Syeda Siddiqua Haqnawaa.
  3. Salaam un ‘alaikum Rawshu you are spending too much time at ShiaChat and other such places. I know, the “extra-curricular” responsibilities you have taken upon yourself need such expense of time and effort. I also know there many other things that make demands on your attention and time. So you burn the midnight oil here. You should not. Thorray kahay kou kaafi jaano baita . . . Aapa
  4. (bismillah) (salam) On the manifold blessed day of Mubahelah, 24 Dhu’lHijjah 1426, January 25th 2006, Rawshni M’aabed became Rawshni Syed Ali Naqi Naqvi. The Nikah was solemnized at Mallorca at her brother’s vacation retreat. Her family had flown in from Karachi, as had Naqi’s for the occasion. All of Rawshni’s friends and well-wishers at this forum are requested to bless this union with their prayers. وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَاجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ SHAKIR: And one of His signs is that He created mates for you from yourselves that you may find rest in them, and He put between you love and compassion; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect. Quran: 030:21 Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  5. (bismillah) (salam) Brother, You seem to proceed from a position that it is an a priori truth the constitution of Iran is Islamic. I proceed from the position that this is a claim that needs to irrefutably proved. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  6. (bismillah) (salam) Ajrokuminallah Brother To add to what you have said: Historically, the antipathy and antagonism towards tatbir / zanjeezani is not new. Similarly, if we look back in time, the Maraj'e taqleed who have in one way or another endorsed tatbir /zanjeerzani conditionally or unconditionally far outnumbers those who have attempted to proscribe it. This again happens to be food for thought before speaking against it. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  7. (bismillah) (salam) They have already attempted to set up a caliphate of sorts with the concepts of Wilayat Al Faqih, Wilayat al Mutlaq etc. etc. It doesn't work for many. What exactly do you have in mind? Please spell it out in detail. The Caliphates that Islaam has so far known are The so-called "Khilafat-e-Rashedah" consisting of the Khilafah of Abu Bakr, Omar Inb Al Khattab, Uthmana ibn AL Affaan, and of Amir-ul-mumineen Ali ibn-e-Abi-Talib (as). Among these four ONLY Ali (as) can be perceived and conceived to be "Rajol al Rasheed" . The Calphate of the Ommayads. The Caliphate of The Abbassids. The Caliphate of the Aal-e-uthmaan that Mustafa Kamal consigned to the trash heap of history. Or do you have in mind a Caliphate like the Caliphate of Ali (as) in mind? For that, you would need a person like Ali (as) to be Caliph. And, such, my dear friend, aren't brought into this world by ordinary women. You need a Fatima-binte-Asad (as) or a Fatimah-binte-Muhammad or a Narjis [alaihum assalawato salaam] to bear such a one. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  8. (bismillah) (salam) Jazaakumallah . . . Brother 1. Their choice . . . not problem, please 2. Very well said . . . and food for much tought! Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  9. (bismillah) (salam) Osama bin Laden claims to be a Muslim. Whatever he has done and does, has effected the entire Muslim world. Musab al Zarqavi claims to be a Muslim. Whatever he has done, and continues doing, has and will have effect on all the Muslims. Mulla Omar of Taalibaan fame claims to be a Muslim. Whatever he has done [inclusive of sanctioning, organizing and lauding the planned, with malice aforethought, cold-blooded massacre of 35,000 Shias in one province alone] has had an effect on the Muslims all over the world. Not wanting to be associated with tatbeer is your choice. But I don't see, considering it a Shia practice, and will remain so for known time to come, how you can avoid others associating you with it. The world, anyways, has not been ordered solely for your comfort. You simply can't escape, and cannot determine how others will perceive you . Period. So there isn't any mileage to be gained by saying that such and such ritual casts Muslims in an "unfavourable" light, therfore let's do away with it. Azadaari, in its entirety, tatbeer / zanjeezani included, is all about public display. Azadaari is as much for you Shias as it is for the non-Shia ambience in which you exist. Centuries testify to the effectiveness of Azadaari as a medium of tableegh [prosletysation] of the Shia faith, and among the rituals of Azadaari, tatbeer / zanjeerzani is the most effective of all. Islam, anyway, prefers collective performance over individual. Wassalaam Sayeddah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  10. (bismillah) (salam) Once again, brother dear, you have not answered my question directly. IF I am misguided, you are right. If you are misguided, I am right. Or we both are misguided. Saheeh. Agreed one hundred per cent. What I had asked, and I repeat, is it your belief that I am misguided? I wanted to know the degree of certitude with which you said this. Your reply indicates that that you do, at some level of consciousness, entertain the thought that [while I do remain misguided in your estimation] you too could be wrong. Now, though this thread is about the desirability of future revolutions xeroxing what happened in Iran in 1979, we both know that you are also a muqallad . . . whither does this possibility of you too being wrong take you? Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  11. (bismillah) (salam) This doesn't answer my question, my dear brother. No. I do not have anything against Iran. I do have a lot against what has been done, and is still being done in the name of Islam and Imaam (as) there by those who are in power there. Not only I myself, but but many of my immediate and extended family have lived in Iran. I, myself still am a frequent visitor. I was there from 1978 till 1984 without any break. Let us take the case of Ayatullah Mohammed Kazem Shariatmadari. He was one of the most revered Maraja'e-taqleed much before many whom we know now came into the limelight -- mostly for reasons other than "tabahhar-e-ilmi." You must be familiar with a compendium of religious guidance published in India and Pakistan, known as the "Tohfa-tul-Awaam". It is a book very commonly found in Shia homes. It is a collection of the guidance and edicts of various Maraj'e regarding fiqhi problems most commonly encountered [You may call it a collection of summarized "Tawzeehs" within a single volume]. Try to find, if you can spare the time, copies of "Tohfa-tul-Awaam dating to the early 60s. You will find Shariatmadari sharing pride of place along with Ayatullah Mohsin-al-Hakim Tabatabai. This is just to indicate the almost universal esteem in which Shariatmadari was held. What was done to him? Defrocked. Ridiculed. Held incommunicado. Eventually snuffed out. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Isn't this qiyaas, brother? Or does it happen to be your belief? Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  13. (bismillah) (salam) Saddam prohibited Azadaari, didn't he? Before Saddam, till way back in time, there have been people, always, who have tried to prohibit, place restrictions upon, and / or disfigure Azadaari. And, perhaps, there will always be, till the promised and ordained Revelation of the Awaited Qa'aed (as). Why is it that Azadaari in general, and tatbeer [as it is being called here] or zanjeerzani [as it is known in India and Pakistan] in particular, that elicits such strong, sustained and vicious opposition? Why not the Shia way of prayer, the Shia practice of breaking the fast much later than other professed Muslims? It is so simple, one fails to see how and why the supposedly learned cannot fathom it. Azadaari is organically linked to Imaamat. Imaamat happens to be the differentiator between Shia Islam and the me-too brands of Islam. And it is solely Azadaari that has kept the banner aloft. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  14. Orion Have you ever lived in Iran for any length of time? Particularly, were you there for any reasonable length of time, from mid 1978 till the election of Khatami for his first term? Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
  15. (bismillah) (salam) Okay. Perhaps forcing is too strong a word, inappropriate. But they ARE exerting pressure [undue, uncalled for], aren't they? These Sha'aer are a matter of belief. Wassalaam Sayyedah Siddiqua Haqnawaa
