  1. Hello, What do you mean by taking the name of filthy animal?
  2. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم W a salaam, Yes, what you have heard is true, and according to Islam, the penalty for an apostate is death. However, there are very important conditions. Eveyone may doubt about Allah s.w.t. or the Holy Prophet s.a.w.a. or any other certain Islamic belief, but that is not only ok, but also encouraged. We have been ordered to think and reflect upon our beliefs. Doubt, as late shahīd Motahhari says, is a bridge toward discovering the truth. A person who examines and analyzes the existence of God is not an apostate. Bare in mind that the death penalty
  3. There are three issues: 1. Khums, which is obligatory on certain things, namely the profit, or gain from earning. At the end of every year, it is obligatory to pay one fifth of the remaining annual profit as khums, which is itself divided into two parts: half of it goes to the poor sayyids and the other half goes to the marji’ who will decide how and where to spend it. 2. Zakaat of the properties, which is obligatory on wheat, barley, dates, raisins, gold, silver, camel, cow, sheep (including goat), and as an obligatory precaution, the wealth in business. I think your question c
  4. To be honest, I don't really get what you mean. Could you explain your question a bit more?
  5. The answer I provided was based on the verse I mentioned in my first answer. The verse says, "The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him." which includes all human beings. But remember that the takwini submission is not an advantage, for it is an inherent, innate act that is done without one's will. Peace.
  6. You're welcome, As for the question you asked, the answer is yes, even the kaafirs and munaafiqs exalt Allah s.w.t. in the sense that each and every part of their bodies exalt Him, without their own realization. And this has nothing to do with their Kufr, since kufr is the opposite of belief which are both conscious acts, unlike the takwini submission which is a subconscious act. Peace.
  7. بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم Salaamun alaykum, Mary the mother of Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon them both) is absolutely one of the heights women in the world. However, to compare between her and lady Fatima az-Zahraa s.a. requires that we look at the non-Quranic authentic evidence, too. As we know, the holy Quran, for certain reasons mentioned in its own place, never adresses the Ahlul Bayt a.s. in a direct way. However, an abundant number of the verses in the Quran are about the Ahlul Bayt a.s. We can realize this through referring to the authentic ahaadith. Concerning t
  8. بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم Salaamun alaykum, If I have understood you correctly you are asking about the two types of submission to the Creator. In the holy Quran, as well as the ahaadith of the Ahlul Bayt a.s., submission is divided into two types: takwini and tashri'i. Takwini submission is 5hat which includes all creatures with no exception. That is, all creatures are inherently submissive to Allah s.w.t. in an unconscious manner. The following verse is a good proof for this type of submission: (تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِنْ
  9. As for the sanad of the hadeeth, it is technically hasan, which means "good." When all or some of the narrators in a sanad are admired (mamdooh) but are not explicitly referred to as just ('aadil), that sanad will be hasan. Some of the ulamaa maintain that hasan hadeeths are authentic, while others do not. A third group of the ulamaa deem the hasan hadeeth authentic if the majority of ulamaa act upon it. Nevertheless, such hadeeths are so many that one can easily assert their authenticity. Concerning bad intentions in the Imam's (a.s.) mind, absolutely not. We believe that Imam
  10. You're welcome, brother! Thank you very much, brother! But, we cannot generally say that whoever ends up with divorce will be punished, because divorce, though being the most undesirable halaal, is halaal, and it is sometimes the only solution. May Allah s.w.t. bless all of us, and we seek refuge to Him from being situated in such circumstances. Peace!
  11. W A Salaam, In all four cases, the man is allowed to marry his ex wife, temporarily or permanently, except in one situation: after the third divorce. So, the man who has divorced his wife (normal or khula) for the first or second time, can remarry her (mut'ah or permanent) after the completion of her iddah and recitation of the formula. But the man who has divorced his wife (normal or khula) for the third time, cannot remarry her, unless she marries another person with four conditions: the marriage should be permanent, not mut'ah; they have sexual intercourse;
  12. W A Salaam, Dear friend, talking to the opposite gender (non-mahram) in itself is not haraam, unless it entails haraam acts. However, be aware that talking with non-mahram, especially in the case of the youth, is one of the most dangerous traps of Satan, which draws the person into committing sins in the future without knowing it. In the beginning, it may have no effects, but little by little, it brings evil thoughts to one's mind, and these thoughts gradually become stronger and stronger, until they put the person in the trap of vice. Remember that this is no case where you tru
  13. في تفسير العياشي، عن الصادق ع، قال: ما علم الملائكة بقولهم: أ تجعل فيها من يفسد فيها و يسفك الدماء، لو لا أنهم قد كانوا رأوا من يفسد فيها و يسفك الدماء أقول: يمكن أن يشير بها إلى دورة في الأرض سابقة على دورة بني آدم هذه كما وردت فيه الأخبار Tafseer al-Ayyaashi narrated from Imam as-Saadiq a.s.: If the angles had not seen men who would cause corruption in it (the Earth), and shed blood, they would not have said "Will You set in it someone who will cause corruption in it, and shed blood?" This may be an indication to an era on Earth prior to the era of the sons of Adam, as ment
  14. According to the traditions and some interpreters' viewpoints, the current generation of mankind is not from Abel or Cain, it’s from Adam’s (A.S) other son, Seth. However, when it comes to the marriage of Adam’s (A.S) children, there are some viewpoints among Muslim scholars, each mentioning reasons from Quran and traditions for their viewpoints. Some of these viewpoints are briefly mentioned here: 1- It was a marriage among siblings. Since it was not forbidden by God to marry a sibling and because there was no other way to preserve Adam's (A.S) offspring, therefore this type of marriage was
  15. Salaams, dear all, From now on, I have decided to post the hadeeths, in a blog under the same title, "Numerical Ethical Hadeeths," so please refer to the blog. Thanks, Peace!
  16. عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ أَرْبَعٌ‏ مَنْ كُنَّ فِيهِ وَ كَانَ مِنْ قَرْنِهِ إِلَى قَدَمِهِ ذُنُوباً بَدَّلَهَا اللَّهُ حَسَنَاتٍ الصِّدْقُ وَ الْحَيَاءُ وَ حُسْنُ الْخُلُقِ وَ الشُّكْرُ. Narrated from Abu Abdillah [Imam as-Saadiq] a.s.: The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) said, "There are four things that whoever contains them, and is full of sins from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet, Allah will turn his sins into good deeds: - honesty/ sincerity, - modesty, - good disposition/ character, - thankfulness." [Al-Kaafi
  17. Yes, Islam and Muslims hold Jesus, as well as the other prophets a.s., in higher esteem than the Christians themselves do. Unfortunately, Christians attribute things to Jesus a.s. thinking that they could be advantages for him, while he himself denied those things for himself. وَ إِذْ قالَ اللَّهُ يا عيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ أَ أَنْتَ قُلْتَ لِلنَّاسِ اتَّخِذُوني‏ وَ أُمِّيَ إِلهَيْنِ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ قالَ سُبْحانَكَ ما يَكُونُ لي‏ أَنْ أَقُولَ ما لَيْسَ لي‏ بِحَقٍّ "And when Allah will say," O Jesus son of Mary! Was it you who said to the people," Take me and my mother for gods
  18. Any du'a or dikr that does not address other than Allah s.w.t. is allowed in Qunoot, and the du'a that you mentioned (du'a for the safety of Imam al-Hujjah) is one of the good du'as that many of the ulama recite in their Qunoot. However, du'a faraj (the one I mentioned) is not allowed to be recited in Qunoot, cuz as I said, it addresses other than Allah s.w.t. which is not allowed in salaat.
  19. W A salaam, brother, That is not du'a faraj, though many people refer to it as du'a faraj. Du'a faraj is this: اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ الْبَلَاءُ وَ بَرِحَ الْخَفَاءُ وَ انْكَشَفَ الْغِطَاءُ وَ انْقَطَعَ الرَّجَاءُ وَ ضَاقَتِ الْأَرْضُ وَ مُنِعَتِ السَّمَاءُ وَ أَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعَانُ وَ إِلَيْكَ الْمُشْتَكَى وَ عَلَيْكَ الْمُعَوَّلُ فِي الشِّدَّةِ وَ الرَّخَاءِ اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدِ أُولِي الْأَمْرِ الَّذِينَ فَرَضْتَ عَلَيْنَا طَاعَتَهُمْ وَ عَرَّفْتَنَا بِذَلِكَ مَنْزِلَتَهُمْ فَفَرِّجْ عَنَّا بِحَقِّهِمْ فَرَجاً عَاجِلًا قَرِيباً كَلَمْحِ الْبَصَرِ أَوْ ه
  20. W A Salaam, Wait, wait, please! No, it is not allowed to recite the whole du'a faraj in Qunoot. The reason is that in salaat, we must pray to Allah s.w.t. only, directly or indirectly, but in du'a faraj, there are some parts in which we address other than Allah s.w.t. which is not allowed. From this part on, is not allowed: ُ يَا مُحَمَّدُ يَا عَلِيُّ يَا عَلِيُّ يَا مُحَمَّدُ اكْفِيَانِي فَإِنَّكُمَا كَافِيَايَ وَ انْصُرَانِي فَإِنَّكُمَا نَاصِرَايَ يَا مَوْلَانَا يَا صَاحِبَ الزَّمَانِ الْأَمَانَ الْأَمَانَ الْأَمَانَ الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ الْغَوْثَ أَدْرِكْنِي أَدْرِكْنِي أَدْر
  21. Salaam, brother, Thank you very much, but I'm nothing! I just quoted the words of our great scholars who have answered all these questions long ago. With du'as, Peace!
  22. As for the third question, the verse 4:48 is talking about the great quality of forgiveness of Allah s.w.t. According to Shaykh Tabarsee in Majma' al-Bayaan, the verse implies that Allah s.w.t. may forgive all sins other than shirk, to whom He pleases, even without repentance, but shirk is not forgiven without repentance. The argument is that it is agreed upon among all Muslims from various sects that a mushrik who repents from shirk and converts to Islam is forgiven and that the previous sins of such a person would be omitted. Additionally, there are other verses that expressly
  23. Concerning the second question, it is notable that the verse 7:143 has used the term “mu’mineen” meaning believer, but in the verse 39:12, the word used is “muslimeen.” “Mu’min” has a general meaning, which is “a person who believes in something.” This meaning includes even the person who believes in a rock; such a person is called “mu’min” in this sense. The second meaning of “mu’min,” which is the technical meaning of it in Islam, is the person who honestly believes in whatever the Prophet s.a.w.a. has brought. قالَتِ الْأَعْرابُ آمَنَّا قُلْ لَمْ تُؤْمِنُوا وَ لكِنْ قُولُوا أَ
