  1. Islam, today, is pretty much restricted to the areas which were conquered during that time (including iran) and if you consider war on Persian empire etc as wrongful then Imam Hussain (as) could not also have rightfully taken princess Shehrbano as her wife (as she would not have been a slave). Also, try to read more, as earlier Muslims always sought to spread message of Islam peacefully and wrote letters to leaders all around the world to allow them to invite people to Allah and only when they were not allowed to reach out to people that they resisted with force. Ali (as) along with Ammar Ibn Yasir (as), did take part in Ridda wars and commanded 1/3rd of the army. Ali attacked the apostates, like a Lion reciting his famous rijziya poetry while Ammar was busy giving the best he could (he even lost one ear). Imam Hasan (as) also had gone to wars and earned war booty like Ali. In the battles of Badr, Uhud and Khaybar, Muslim armies were very small in number AND EVEN WOMEN HAD TO JOIN. In badr e.g they were 313, Uhud about 700 or at Khyber roughly 1600 however during the conquests of Makah the companions were already 10000+ and increasing. So yes he was a very very valuable asset just like the caliph of Islam at that time who also did not go to the wars as the much expanded Islamic empire now had to be handled as per strategy best suited to it interests. Even prophet (saw) did not go to all the battles.
  2. Our madhab (along with its ahadith/sermons collection) principally revolves around one personality i.e Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who is the best guide and the last messenger. All other Muslims are his followers and servants. Those who served him well will be remembered InshaAllah. We have multiple Jumah Sermons and we also have in our books recorded 4 Juma Sermons related to each Caliph which is about praise of Allah and His messenger (saw). As you may have noticed that apart from the mention of prophet (saw) in our most common Jumah Sermons** we make mention of 4 caliphs including Ali (ra) we also mention Hassanain (raa) and Fatimah (ra) and also Hamza , Abbas. any other names are rarely mentioned. We believe that following and praising Ahly Bait or Ashab is because they followed the footsteps of Prophet (saw)... otherwise they did not have their individual statuses. **(as also quoted by Allama Thanwi, a Sunni scholar [of deobandi thoughts, who are generally considered more opposed to Shias] in his book "Juma ke Khutbe" Pg 63 published by DARUL ISHAAT) Yes.... i have seen this more in deobandi/salafi mosques and I think that they should mention Ahly bait (as) more than they usually do without any fear that sunnis would adopt shia thoughts. I think that one reason for mentioning Umar (ra) more than any other caliph (as Uthman (ra) is also not mentioned as much) is because Umar's reign was prosperous and is regarded as sound era with much to learn about positive sides of Islam. Unfortunately, we as Sunnis, now a days even struggle to follow prophet (saw) as much as we should and you are talking about Ahly bait? BTW do Shias obey Ahly Bait? We eat because we also reliable ahadith about its permissibility by prophet (saw) and some narrations are mutawatir: "We chased a rabbit at Mar-al-Zahran and the people ran after it but were exhausted. I overpowered and caught it, and gave it to Abu Talha who slaughtered it and sent its hip or two thighs to Allah's Apostle. (The narrator confirms that he sent two thighs). The Prophet (ﷺ) accepted that. (The sub-narrator asked Anas, "Did the Prophet; eat from it?" Anas replied, "He ate from it.") al-Bukhari According to Ahlus Sunnah, dhub is "haram"... it is eaten by some ultra-salafists. However, I have researched the topic and its clear based on a reliable hadith in Sunan Abi Dawood that eating Lizard (Dhub) is prohibited (decision came at later stage like many other things which were gradually forbidden). Regarding eating Hyenas etc... the largest group of Ahlus Sunnah i.e. Hanafi do not allow it based on hadith in Muslim and Bukhari while others consider it as permissible game. so it is a controverisial matter like that of sea-food.
  3. Lol.... Jibril in our world talks to none after Muhammad (saw) however it does come down in Shia world with a book 3 times bigger than our (not so original) Quran with altogeher new knowledge and without use of any letter in the Quran... but the world has to wait for that miracle too!
  4. What I actually had said was that angels did help believers too other than the prophets. Don't you agree? is it true that Shias say so?
  5. ........ well Surah Tawbah is not just all about disbelievers....... There is text about prophet (saw), about Allah loving mutaqeen, momineen etc
  6. believers are also helped by army of angels.... [Remember] when you said to the believers, "Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should reinforce you with three thousand angels sent down? (Quran 3:124) إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لَا تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَنَا فَأَنزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَّمْ تَرَوْهَا Zameer has to refer to someone/something within the discussion... i agree it is not necessary that zameer always has to refer to something right before or right next (i don't think that there is such a rule).... now what we see as relevant is the consolation to la'sahibhi, as it continue with fa'anzala which here should be the result of some previous development... that is someone was in need of tranquility and that is where we view Abu Bakr in need as he was just asked by Rasool (saw) to not grieve. Even if you don't agree with this view... you still have to acknowledge that Prophet (saw) can never flaw when he talks about Allah and cannot be wrong when he tells Abu Bakr "InnAllaha Ma'ana" "Indeed Allah is with us" (i.e. Prophet+Abu Bakr).
  7. how about tafsir imam hasan al askari? Right after the word 'qeela' i.e. they say Imam Ibn Kathir continues to tell who they are .... "ibn Abbas and others, the pronominal refers back to Abu Bakr because tranquility was already with Messenger of Allah (saw)" " في الأشهر وروي عن ابن عباس وغيره أن الضمير يعود على (أبي بكر) لأن الرسول صلى اللّه عليه وسلم لم تزل معه سكينة " Habeeb ibn Abi Thabit (a major tabi’ee scholar, and a student of Ibn Abbas) said: It was revealed for Abu Bakr, as for Prophet(saw) Sakinah was already upon him. [Tafseer ibn Abi Hatim: Grading: Chain is Hasan(good)] Now, having the view of a companion and a great muffassir like Abdullah Ibn Abbas (ra), and his followers and ibn kathir himself... the matter should be much more clear. Also Ibn Kathir in his tafsir did not give any other view or his own view that may contradict Ibn Abbas's view. Hence, Ibn Kathir choose to explain the ayah with the view of Ibn Abbas (ra).
  8. LoL Abu Bakr 'most probably' gave away their location to enemy... how? Abu Bakr feared for his life ... from his collaborators? or prophet (saw)? Definitely not the Prophet, as the Masoom Nabi (saw) uttered from his blessed mouth these beautiful words to support Abu Bakr "Do not grieve... Indeed Allah is with us".... btw seems like consolation for his companion (l'sahibhi) or his (supposed) enemy? And then the words "Indeed Allah is with us" become part of the Holy Quran... although Allah Himself claims in Quran " Indeed, Allah is with those who fear Him and those who are doers of good(Muhsinoon)".[Quran 16:128] So was Allah with the prophet (saw) and Abu Bakr (ra) together or not? So Allah sends down tranquility on the enemies too......! and here also, as you suggested, for protecting His beloved prophet (saw)? ... although Allah says in 48:4 Quran "It is He who sent down tranquillity into the hearts of the believers that they would increase in faith along with their [present] faith."
  9. If you will notice then i actually shared the second view presented by Shia mufassir while explaining the ayah:
  10. Sheikh Tabarsi in his famous Shia Tafseer "Majma al Bayan" writes under the ayah: "Shia have brought such arguments in order to restrict tranquility in this ayah to Prophet (saw) which I do not find appropriate enough to repeat here." in another Shia Tafseer of Abu Al-Futuh Al-Razi "Ruh Al-Jinan (9/234): " we find: Some scholars of Tafsir stated: that the pronoun of Tranquility was for Abu Bakr, because the tranquility was never been separated from the Prophet. And others said: the fear and grief was of Abu Bakr and NOT of Prophet, because he (Abu Bakr) was dependent (in need) of tranquility." As it was Abu Bakr who was aggrieved (in huzan) that is why prophet (saw) tried to relax him by saying "La Tahzan" Don't grieve "Inn'Allaha ma'ana" Allah is with us... so naturally Allah's tranquility then descended down on Abu Bakr (ra) as Prophet (saw) was already relaxed and himself assured Abu Bakr that Allah was with them!
  11. I am a Sunni following fiqah of Abu Hanifa like most people of my region and find it conforming to ideal practices of Islam... we have four branches of Jurisprudence. i will not have problem following fiqah of other aimas ( or if i become myself an expert in the field myself then my own someday). However, what makes all four madahibs gel together is that their fundamental beliefs are the same i.e. Usool or aqaid. Ahlus Sunnah won't have trouble with fiqah of ahle tashaiyyu but in what we actually differ is Usool e Deen or Fundamental Aqaid. Since, Ahlus Sunnah has least differences with some branches of Zaidi sect in usool and therefore Ulema/scholars of Ahlus Sunnah consider such groups within the correct fold without any hesitation.
  12. does that mean you don't consider Ismaili (Agha khani + Bohris) as Shia madhab? Secondly, i would like to inform you that as far as Sunni madahib are concerned... they differ on matters of Furoo or certain laws however their fundamental beliefs are the same. While both Jafari and Zaidi schools have fundamental differences on question of Imamah which happens to be one of the core issues in Shiaism. Regards
  13. No no .... that is not necessary... GA Sistani has pretty much removed all the obstacles for the great benefit of public and has also saved parents from going tough on their children... Fatwa# 2386. In the following situations, it will not be necessary for a woman to seek the permission of her father or paternal grandfather, before getting married (permanent or temporary): If she is not a virgin. If she is a virgin, but her father or paternal grandfather refuse to grant permission to her for marrying a man who is compatible to her in the eyes of Shariah, as well as custom. If the father and the grandfather are not in any way willing to participate in the marriage. If they are not in a capacity to give their consent, like in the case of mental illness etc. If it is not possible to obtain their permission because of their absence, or such other reasons, and the woman is eager to get married urgently.
  14. Sahih al Muslim : "The latter (Marhab, the Jewish warlord) advanced chanting: Khaibar knows certainly that I am Marhab, A fully armed and well-tried valorous warrior (hero) When war comes spreading its flames. Ali chanted in reply: I am the one whose mother named him Haidar, (And am) like a lion of the forest with a terror-striking countenance. I give my opponents the measure of sandara in exchange for sa' (i. e. return thir attack with one that is much more fierce). The narrator said: 'Ali struck at the head of Mirhab and killed him, so the victory (capture of Khaibar) was due to him."
  15. Every follower of the prophet (saw) need guidance from him (saw) and we are proud of that that we need Muhammad (saw) as our guide. Umar's transformation was a big one. He, as a successful ruler over a vast empire which extended immensely and successfully under his rule, himself had said that I was someone who could not roam camel herd properly and now Islam has improved me to this point (managing the affairs of a vast Islamic empire).
