    You dont have to sister, once you say the tasleem, your salat is over.
    The three takbeers are mustahab after salat actions. When you do them, you're doing them after you already finished.
    Once you finish tasleem, you are finished. You can get up if you want.

    Do you say the following after you rise from the final sajdah;
    Asalamu 3alayka ayuhal Nabiyu wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh, al-salamu 3alayna wa 3ala 3ibad illahi al-saliheen, al-salamu 3alaykum wa rahamtu Allahi wa barakatuh.

    First of all there is proof that Imam Ali helped with those expanisions, namely the conquest of Persia. Shaykh Al-Korani has talked about this.
    Secondly, in our Fiqh there is something called offensive Jihad. Whether that is the exclusive right of the infallible Imam or another person can call it is a different issue, the point is not every war in Islam is defensive. Some are expansionist and offensive. 
    Sayyed Subah Shubbar nails it:

    [79] أبو عبد الله محمد بن إبراهيم، قال حدثني علي بن محمد بن يزيد القمي، قال حدثني عبد الله بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن عمير، عن هشام بن سالم، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) قال : كان بلال عبدا صالحا و كان صهيب عبد سوء يبكي على عمر   [79] Abu Abdallah Muhammad b. Ibrahim said: narrated to me Ali b. Muhammad b. Yazid al-Qummi saying: narrated to me Abdallah b. Muhammad b. Isa from Ibn Abi Umayr from Hisham b. Salim from Abi Abdillah عليه السلام who said: Bilal was a righteous slave while Suhayb was an evil slave - crying over Umar (i.e. after the latter was assassinated).   https://sites.google.com/site/rijalalkashi/vol1/bilal-and-suhayb   ختص: كان بلال مؤذن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، فلما قبض رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لزم بيته ولم يؤذن لاحد من الخلفاء وقال فيه أبوعبدالله جعفر بن محمد عليه السلام: رحم الله بلالا فإنه كان يحبنا أهل البيت، ولعن الله صهيبا فإنه كان يعادينا
    al-Ikhtisas: Bilal was the Mua`dhin of the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله, so when the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله died, he [Bilal] remained in his house, and he did not give the Adhan for any one of the Khulafa, Abu Abdillah Ja`far b. Muhammad عليه السلام said about him: may Allah have mercy on Bilal, for he used to love us the Ahl al-Bayt, may Allah curse Suhayb for he used to have enmity with us.
    يه: عن أبي بصير عن أحدهما عليهما السلام أنه قال : إن بلالا كان عبدا صالحا، فقال: لا اؤذن لاحد بعد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، فترك يومئذ حي على خير العمل
    al-Faqih: From Abi Basir from one of them عليهما السلام that he said: Bilal was a righteous slave, he said: I will not give the Adhan for anyone after the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله so 'Hayya ala Khayril Amal' was abandoned from that day.
    يب: محمد بن علي بن محبوب، عن معاوية بن حكيم، عن سليمان بن جعفر، عن أبيه قال : دخل رجل من أهل الشام على أبي عبدالله عليه السلام فقال له: إن أول من سبق إلى الجنة بلال، قال: ولم؟ قال : لانه أول من أذن
    Tahdhib al-Ahkam: Muhammad b. Ali b. Mahbub from Mu`awiya b. Hukaym from Sulayman b. Ja`far from his father who said: a man from the people of Sham entered to meet Abi Abdillah عليه السلام so he said to him: the first one to proceed to Janna will be Bilal, he said: why is that? he said: because he was the first to give the Adhan.
    NOTE: al-Majlisi says that it could be the Imam who says this about Bilal, as is more likely, but there is an option that it is the Shami who said this, and the Imam responded - 'why do you say that?' [as a form of objecting to it] and the Shami answered, and the Imam remained silent because of Taqiyya. 
    Also, Bilal being the first to proceed to Janna is not absolute, but could be relative to other Mu`adhins, or his class of the Sahaba who are not Ahl al-Bayt.

    Sumerian reacted to Qa'im in Hoor al-`Ayn are not White Chicks   
    As I have noted earlier, abyad according to the dictionary definitions I have provided is not the same as the 20th century understanding of "white" (i.e. Caucasian people). The reference above does indeed say that their skin would be abyad, but that is probably a reference to the clarity of her skin, purity in youth, and lack of blemishes, discolouration, bumps, wrinkles, and burns. Al-Dhahabi's reference even says "white" means "tawny" (bronze), which is a more Mediterranean complexion. A "hooriya" literally means "a contrasting one", and an abyad person in classical Arabic is someone with fair skin and dark hair. White faces in the Hereafter refers to noor. Pale skin in Arabic is actually musfar and not mubyad.
    Either way, the Hereafter is not something you can imagine. You should probably ask yourself what makes you hung up on the colour of the hooriya. I don't see anyone arguing over what kind of wine Paradise would have, but I have angered multiple people over this blog (usually young South Asian and Arab men/boys), which just exposes our community's undue obsession with whiteness. I have seen Muslim girls rejected by their inlaws because of their dark colour, called the N-word, and light-skinned Muslims treated like royalty. I've seen western women treated like war booty. I am very light skinned myself, and I'm given a pedestal in some communities. A very famous speaker whom I will not name brags about his temporary marriages with European women, saying that it was "the Sunna of Imam al-`Askari" (even though Narjis was probably not European). It's really hard to deny that this is a big problem.

    Jazakallah for this beneficial piece. Just a slight observation about one of the quoted definitions.
    Ibn Athir comments on this in the next line [in Lisan] and says:
    وفي هذا القول نظر فإنهم قد استعملوا الأبيض في ألوان الناس وغيرهم
    And there could be an objection to this claim, for they [the Arabs] have used 'Abyadh' to refer the complexions of people and others.

    What does what I said have to do with Da'wah? My post has nothing to do with religious preaching and preaching against sin.
    All I said is that Muslims shouldn't be involved in liberal vs conservative battles. 
    Pro-police vs pro-BLM is another one of these useless issues that Muslims don't need to be into. IMO
    I believe isolation from politics is a good thing for Muslims in the West in the current time. Don't you?

    How stupid is this argument. You are assuming that that somehow men have the right to emotionally abuse women and that is a right. As if I ever said that.
    In Islam, for the man, it all comes down to 2 rights.
    1) Wife cannot leave the house without his permission 2) When the husband demands intercourse, he gets it.
    He does not have the right to make her cook and clean.
    The wife is entitled to: 1) Nafaqa, he clothes her and feeds her. His money is the family's money, not his personal money, if he does not provide these things. 2) She has a right to intercourse every 4 months.
    Again, you put words in my mouth. You seem to somehow relate whatever I say to how "Muslim men" act. I don't care how they act, this is not the argument. A masculine man is someone like Imam Ali (AS), and a feminine woman is Sayyeda Fatima (AS).
    You seem to be acting masculinity is a bad thing.
    Would you rather a feminine and pathetic husband? Would you rather a man who wears dresses? 
    Alhamdulillah my beliefs are backwards, because progressive beliefs are cursed. If by backwards my beliefs are in touch with the Qur'an and Sunnah, then so be it. Alhamdulillah.
    Alhamdulillah, Islam embraces "gender roles". This is why some jobs only males are allowed to have.

    Sorry. But did you read what I said? God-given RIGHTS. God-given RIGHTS. God-given RIGHTS.
    Is that clear? These are rights given by Allah, if you have a problem with these Laws, then you may have a problem with Allah.
    Examples of a feminine female is Sayyeda Fatima, Sayyedah Zaynab, among other Holy women in Islam. They should be the role models for sisters.
    And about your husband sleeping in the garage, that's your problem with him I suppose. I couldn't care less.
    I'm here to speak for Islam's point of of view, not 2016 point of view, or modern point of view. You brought up the part about the 1950s, guess what? These God-given rights have not changed since 1950. And they won't change.

    Sadly for you, Islam is Islam. Whether it is 700AD Islam, 1209AD Islam, 1950s Islam or even 2016 Islam.
    And this is why I will not marry a "strong woman" (whatever the hell that means, guessing you mean 2016 feminist women), instead I will marry a feminine women who respects my God-given rights as a husband just as a I respect her God-given rights.
    I never said women shouldn't have their own opinions, stop putting words in my mouth.
    Whether you like it or not, in Islam the man is the head of the family. And these Laws will not change even if the progressives cry.
    Right now you sound like an angry feminist.

    Sumerian reacted to Qa'im in Karbala: The Supreme Sacrifice   
    Yes, but Imam ar-Rida was not fighting a war. If you are fighting a war, and your goal is not to defeat your opponent, then your motive should be reinvestigated. Too often, Husayn's movement is seen as a failed revolution that modern people can pick up and finish on his behalf. This interpretation is unfounded in our literature.
    Ziyara of all of the Imams is recommended, but we don't do an annual 10-40 days of consecutive mourning for other Imams, even though at least one Imam was superior to Husayn. I have not seen hadiths about crying a single tear for Imam Rida extinguishing all sins, or the creation as a whole mourning for any of the Imams (raining blood, earthquakes, blackened sun, jinn and birds crying, etc.) As for the ziyara of ar-Rida being superior, the hadith you are referring to says that the visitors of ar-Rida are superior to the visitors of al-Husayn - it is referring to the fact that non-Imamis would visit Husayn's shrine (Sufis, Zaydis, Waqifis, etc.) but only loyalists would visit ar-Rida and the succeeding Imams. However this is not a statement about the act of ziyara to ar-Rida being better, it is a statement on the aqeeda of those who visit him vs. the aqeeda of those who ignore him.
    Yeah it could be a coincidence. But the holiness of the Sabbath for the Jews was mentioned in the Quran, and Yom Kippur is in the Torah and pre-Islamic tradition, so to me there's not much of a chance that it was an innovated holiday.
