  1. It doesn't work if everyone jumps in and the topic gets diverted all over the place. I propose that those who want to debate put their names forward. @Cherub786 can then decide which (one) member he wants to debate with. Let's try and keep this structured.
  2. Is there really such a thing as 'article of Sunnism'? The Ahl us Sunnah wal Jama'ah is basically an umbrella category for tons of different groups that didn't clearly belong elsewhere. I think many would object to the claim that believing in the Mahdi is a fundamental of 'Sunnism'
  3. Who do you think kept him there in the first place?
  4. None of them are 'good for Muslims' If you think Biden is going to do something about the Uighurs then you're in for a big disappointment. The country is run by lobbies such as AIPAC and the NRA. They fund both candidates and expect something back from their money.
  5. It's the responsibility of each individual to keep away from such things. You cannot shift the blame. A Muslim who fears Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) would never allow themselves to indulge in such filth.
  6. Kindly refer to the sub section on Ghuluw: https://www.al-islam.org/imamate-and-imams-ayatullah-ibrahim-amini/chapter-2-ahlul-bayt-quran-and-traditions#ghuluw
  7. Walaikum as salam. Thanks for your reply. Perhaps I misphrased my post. Rather than objections, I would say if there are specific questions or points that are listed then they can be addressed inshaAllah. Was it only about sexual consent in marriage (which is already being discussed in this thread) or are there also other points to clarify?
  8. It would be easier if you simply state what your objections are here, but as @Ali_Hussain has already mentioned you will probably find similar fiqhi positions in our madhab as well.
  9. Who do you consider worthy, and what is your criteria? Have you got 4-5 examples of such people?
  10. The title of the video is quite an ignorant statement, considering the hawza to be one single entity. Furthermore bringing forward unverified stories and anecdotes doesn't add to the credibility of the speaker (who obviously wasn't present during this extremely dark time in Najaf) Anyone who knows how Saddam and his mukhabaraat operated will understand that the situation was not as simple as some modern day speakers (living in comfort) try to portray. Their objections are not unlike the objections of those who rejected Imam Baqir (عليه السلام) and portrayed themselves as followers of Zayd (after he was martyred). May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us from fitnah
  11. In general I never understood why this question was relevant keeping in mind that the ambiya and aimmah all brought the same message and guidance. The question of superiority only becomes relevant if there is an opposition/contradiction/split, whereas the ambiya and the aimmah are all part of one line of guidance.
  12. @AmirioTheMuzzy have you considered Nasser and the 1952 Egyptian revolution?
  13. Not something I would usually expect to hear from someone with his profile, but I wonder if family/cultural influences have driven this even if they shouldn't. I am also hopeful that this is an exception rather than a general trend among senior scholars.
  14. I know such names are common brother, but what is common among muslimeen is not always legit. Anyhow brother @786:) has shared his reference. Thanks for the information brother.
  15. Indeed. If you take it as an academic exercise you will probably be able to treat it in a more objective manner. If the topic is close to your heart then there's a risk of becoming subjective/emotional.
