  1. knowledge as a sign for the Imam As mentioned explicitly in various narrations, one of the signs to recognize the Imam is his knowledge. The infallible Imams have used different terms including: A. Knowledge in an absolute form In some narrations, knowledge in an unconditional way, has been introduced as a sign for the Imam, such as: 1. «عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ النَّضْرِيِّ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع بِمَا يُعْرَفُ صَاحِبُ هَذَا الْأَمْر؟ قَالَ بِالسَّكِينَةِ وَ الْوَقَارِ وَ الْعِلْمِ وَ الْوَصِيَّةِ»[1] “Harith ibn al-Mughayra al-N
  2. Introduction “Imamate” enjoys a great and unique status in the eyes of Muslims, especially the Shi’a and that is why, during the history, some fake claimants have tried to, through claiming to be the Imam, attract the attention of some ignorant lay men and gain some wealth and positions. For this reason, on one hand, the infallible Imams (عليه السلام) always tried to guide their followers by clarifying the criteria and signs through which a true Imam can be distinguished from the fake claimants. On the other hand, the Shi’a, by asking about the signs of an Imam and the ways to recognize
  3. Salamun Alaykum. During the history of Islam, some have falsely claimed to be Imam. In our era, still there are fake Imams; one claims to be Mahdi while another claims to be the 13th Imam! In out narrations, the Imams (عليه السلام) have introduced different ways to recognize true Imam. Here in this thread, I will have a discussion on this very important topic, taking benefit from the book Rah va Birahe by Nusrat Ayati in Persian.

  5. Salamun alaykum. Many! He has mistakes in reciting the Qur'an and reading the narrations. He has mistakes in interpretation of some Verses and even in writing some Verses. He has mistakes in quoting and commenting on some narrations. He gas serious mistakes in historical accounts.He has various mistakes in Arabic grammar in his books and of course, many theological mistakes,
  6. Salamun alaykum. I would appreciate if you can translate the following narration into English: اجتمعت العصابة بنيسابور في أيّام أبي عبد اللّه - عليه السلام - فتذاكروا ما هم فيه من الانتظار للفرج، و قالوا: نحن نحمل في كلّ سنة إلى مولانا ما يجب علينا، و قد كثرت الكاذبة و من يدّعي هذا الأمر، فينبغي لنا أن نختار رجلا ثقة نبعثه إلى الامام ليتعرّف لنا الأمر، فاختاروا رجلا يعرف بأبي جعفر محمد بن إبراهيم النيسابوري، و دفعوا إليه ما وجب عليهم في السنة من مال و ثياب ... و جاءت الشيعة بالجزء الذي فيه المسائل [و كان] سبعين ورقة، و كلّ مسألة فيها بياض، و قد أخذوا كلّ ورقتين فحزموهما بحزائم ثلاثة
  7. Salamun alaykum. There are many, I mean many reasons to prove him wrong. He has various kinds of mistakes regarding the Qur'an, Hadith, theology, history, jurisprudence etc.
  8. Salamun alaykum. I've decided to translate into English one of the Persian books criticizing Ahmad al-Hasan al-Basri. I'd like to know: Firstly, if he and his views are that famous in the West, so that to publish a book against him is necessary. Sometimes, to criticize leads to preaching! Secondly, if there are already such books in English. If yes, what are their names. Any comment is appreciated.
  9. Salamun alaykum. There is no وَ (wa: and) or فَ (fa: then) between the Verses. So the sequence is not based on time; rather, it is based on the importance. Therefore, the Holy Qur'an is mentioned first as it is more significant than human being. It is interesting to know that عَلّمَ has been mentioned in Chapter Al-'Alaq as well but in that Chapter, the creation of human being is mentioned first: اقْرَأْ بِاسْمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذي خَلَقَ (1) Read in the Name of your Lord who created خَلَقَ الْإِنْسانَ مِنْ عَلَقٍ (2) created man from a clinging mass. اقْرَأْ وَ رَبُّكَ الْأَ
  10. With due respect, I prefer to avoid "what if" questions! Imaginations and nothing more.
  11. Salamun alaykum. This is the content of a narration from Imam Sadiq: عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع أَنَّهُ قَالَ مَنْ قَرَأَ إِذَا أَوَى إِلَى فِرَاشِهِ قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ وَ قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ كَتَبَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ لَهُ بَرَاءَةً مِنَ الشِّرْكِ Al-Kafi, vol. 2 p. 626 Usually the narrations which talk about the virtues of the recitation of certain Chapters are explained by the scholars as referring to both reciting and acting upon the Verses. Now when the main message of this Chapter is to be away from disbelief and polytheism the effect of its
  12. Salamun alaykum. Welcome to SC and congratulations for your decision. The following thread is about the same question. i hope it would help:
  13. If what we mean by seeing God is seeing Him through the outer physical eye, it something totally ruled out both by the intellect and Islamic sources. The intellect: the action of seeing takes place only when things are exposed to light beams and their reflection is captured by the eye. This means that there should firstly be an external thing present and secondly it should be captured by the eye in the field of vision. Based on this we cannot see things which are behind us, whereas God is not a physical entity and He does not have the physical features of a physical being. Therefore He
