  1. Assalam Alaykum beloved Brothers and Sisters of Islam Glory be to Allah, the most Merciful, the most Beneficient, who gave humanity free will and does not need anything. It is he who is the provider, the source of all compassion, and the most just. My question involves the revelation of Islam and the nature of Allah. Allah is incomprehensible. Allah is infinite. Why then, does Allah care about mankind, when we are zero to him? With his infinite power and wisdom, why then does he wish to guide us? Why bring down Islam for mankind? Why guide mankind? Most importantly. why does God test
  2. Assalam Alaykum a Few things firstly, why does Allah never explicitely talk in the Quran about the wilayat of Imam Ali (as)? It's always implied or hidden in verses with different percieved meanings. Why did Allah never reveal a verse which straight up said "Ali is the next Imam"? Second, In Surah Azhab Aya 33, Allah speaks of the Ahlulbayt at the end of the Aya. In the ayat, Allah was talking about the Wives of the prophet. He also said he WANTS to purify the ahlulbayt through an extensive purification. Can't I say that this Aya proves that the ahlul bayt is the wives of the prophet?
  3. Assalam Alaykum What is your opinion regarding this blog? https://youpuncturedtheark.wordpress.com/ what are your arguments supporting and refuting its claims about ibn saba? https://youpuncturedtheark.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/abdullah-ibn-saba-the-father-of-rafidism-doubts-over-his-existence-and-his-influence-put-to-rest/
  4. salam alaykum How are we sure that Imam Jaafar Al Sadiq is our 6th Imam? He had a lot of freedom in his time to spread knowledge which the other Imams did not have. There are also various hadith from him that are just straight up false, completely disproven by the Quran and science.
  5. Okay My arguments for god are nothing more than personal experiences. When I recieve them my faith strengthens for a while, but soon afterwards it falls off again. Philosophically I'm not convinced yet Why is it that the most top scholars and scientists of today deny the existence of God? they are men who live in the most advanced countries and use science in their arguments. Why is it that they go far to deny the existence of God? I understand the concept. God is infinite, god is this, so he can't be seen physically. But how can we be sure of anything in this world? We are born with n
  6. I don't have any questions about Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), nor any skepticism. I might in the future, but not as of now. Right now, I have blank opinions about him. Here's a question, how are you sure that Prophet Muhammad didn't steal the message and stories of the Quran from the Jews or Christians? What are some groundbreaking things that Allah's final message have to offer that the other Deens don't? Another question is about ahadith. If the system of hadith that we have currently is good, then how come most western scholars and historians say that it's a bad system? From my understandin
  7. not necessarily. It's hard to explain I can't make up my mind about anything. i hear arguments for and against Imamat, and the only thing that remains in my head are questions and skepticism about it. not just this but everything. For example why are there barely any sunni hadith or historians who write about the immense knowledge of the imams and why does no sunni talk about them to the extent that we do? If the Imams were really that great, for example Imam Jawad had full knowledge age 8, then you'd expect some sunni historians to write about them. How do I know the Imams really had t
  8. Assalam Alaykum About last year, I grew increasingly distant from Islam and attracted more and more to film and literature and other western forms of media, until a doubt began to manifest in me. I felt like the questions western scholars/ scientists raised against Islam could not be answered by the Quran or Ahaditg,In order to get rid of the doubt, I closed off my mind to gaining/seeking knowledge or thinking. I thought that if I researched into Islam I would not find any answers agianst these accusations. i also thought that if I researched more western literature and sciences they would
  9. Assalam Alaykum, I have a question regarding the historical authenticity of hadith regarding the Imams. Many times I hear hadith that Imam this said this and Imam that did that and all the sunnis stayed quiet. For example with Imam Ridha and his debate against the minions of mamoon. We hear such "beautiful" responses from the Imam, written in nearly every Shia book, but why don't we ever hear of any of these noble actions of the Imam in Sunni books? I'm skeptical because Shia leaders could have bias toward the Imams and command writers to start writing these hadith, but if it's written
