    guest050817 got a reaction from Oskar in Difference in Islamic Tawheed-   
    Walaykumsalam,
    Shia Muslims believe that Allah swt does not ascend or descend , nor does he have a position whereby we say he is in X location, or 'above' his throne , above the seven heavens as many of our sunni brothers (though not all of them) salafi's believe. Shia's and from my personal research a minority of sunni's believe Allah swt existed before there was a 'where', and direction and location are created by him. He existed and he was the first - and 'where' is a variable created by him, and hence he can not be described nor confined by it. Similarly, we do not beleive Allah swt descends at the last third of the night , rather, we have reliable narrations stating that Rasullah s.a.w has said that Allah swt sends an angel. Some sunni's also affirm this meaning, though most do not in my experience.
    Shia's affirm that among the many meanings of 'ahad' in surah Tawheed, it means Allah swt is one , and indivisible. He is not made up of constituent parts.
    Many sunni's - though not all- and salafi's believe that Allah swt has hands - but nothing like our hands, a shin, but nothing like our shin, fingers , but nothing like our fingers, feet, but nothing like our feet. Many affirm these qualities, but leave the knowledge to Allah swt, without delving on the howness or whatness of these attributes. Shia's on the other hand, believe that an essential element of Tawheed is the oneness and absolute indivisibility of Allah swt. He can not be described as being composed of constituent subunits, even if we affirm that these subunits are nothing like ours - because it goes against one of the meanings of Ahad, that is to be unique, one not numerically, and not divisible.
    Sheikh as Sadooq in Kitab Al Tawheed, after giving beautiful traditions on this, explains (and i will paraphrase his explanation), that you can say you have a man, ike you and i. You can describe me as 'one' man. But i'm actually not 'one' in the same sense as Allah swt is one. I have limbs, fingers, am composed of constituent subunits, eyes, hairs, organs. Allah swt is above being attributed a composition of subunits, he is not in need of different subunits to be able to do anything, nor does he have a form or confine , even if we affirm that it is nothing like ours. We can not say 'Allah is one' and then say but composed of hands, fingers, feet, shin, but nothing like our own limbs. He is one in the sense not divisible, he is Allah swt, and there is nothing like him.
    So when Allah swt talks about his 'hands' in the Quran, we shia's take it allegorically to mean potency, power, or another symbolic or metaphorical use of language.

    guest050817 got a reaction from OrthodoxTruth in Dr. Mohsin Naqvi - Don't Give Him Any Charity   
    If , in times of danger and fear , in uncertainty when there is little hope, the first person we think of to call for divine help is Ali a.s rather than Allah swt, then in this case, i would say we shias need to all come together and redefine tawheed.
     
    Let us also not forget the blood-letting that goes on in those parts.

    guest050817 got a reaction from Man Kunto Maula in Did Imam Ali Give Allegiance To Abu Bakr?   
    It is in sunni and shia books that Imam Ali a.s opposed Abu Bakr for six months. Question why people who Sunni's claim were so close would do this? If  Muhammed pbuh had truly praised Abu Bakr as the most knowledgeable, the most wise, etc as read in Bukhari, if the Sahaba were as close as we are led to believe, why would Imam Ali a.s ignore Abu Bakr?
     
    Why not talk to him, ask him to come over to discuss immediately?
     
    Why out-right opposition for six whole months unless ofcourse, he believed either Abu Bakr was not the right or best choice, or additionally , he believed he had a right to the Caliphat role. If you accuse me of committing a false dichotomy, then your third option is Imam Ali a.s was so immature, not only did he believe Abu bakr was the right choice, he was so childish and selfish, as well as immature to not even talk to Abu Bakr right away, and to have a, forgive me 'strop' or 'sulk' for six whole months.
     
    Sunni's often claim Imam Ali a.s did not want much to do with politics. The opposition to Abu Bakr for six months is a powerful refutation to such a claim. If you did not want to meddle in politics, you do not oppose someone being the caliph for six whole months.
     
    If you really loved someone, fought along side them, and saw Muhamed pbuh praise them as the best of men and the wisest after him, and then you go ahead and oppose that same mans Cilaphat for six whole months, there's a contradiction. The truth is clearly something else.
     
    Our sunni brethren in Islam can not even think of such a thing. It would shake the foundations of their school, with all due respect, to the core. If they admit the first and second and third Caliphs usurped the Caliph role, they must then question  if the hadiths in flagrant praise of them are Sahih - what other companions were involved.
     
    It would shake their view of everything, from Rijal, to fiqh, to Aqeedah.

    guest050817 got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in To Believe An Imam Grants Dua Is Shirk (Sistani)   
    Shirk is a loathsome, horrible sin, which is the worst of all sins. Do not even approach it dear brothers and sisters
     
    The belief that we beg the Imams a.s to grant our Dua is shirk. For example, if someone believes you say O Ali I beg of you to help me, grant my dua! They are commiting shirk. The belief is that you only ask Ali a.s to pray to Allah swt for you, so that Allah swt may grant you your dua via the intercession of Ali a.s , or Muhammed pbuh (who is greater than Ali might i add). To believe Allah swt has given the Imams a.s the POWER to act independent of him, is SHIRK.
     
    Therefore there is no way the Imams a.s can hear your dua, and then decide whether they want to grant it. Even if you add in the clause ' but Allah swt gave them this power' you are comitting shirk. It is only Allah swt, by his permission, allows intercession and grants dua.
     
    Therefore there is no dua that is ever made to an Imam! Every dua is really, ultimately made to Allah swt, as it is only in his hands our needs are granted. For instance, O Muhammed help me (O Muhammed pray to Allah swt for me!). Or you can ask your brother or sister, i am really stressed for an exam, and i feel unwell, i beg you to pray to Allah swt for me!
     
    Now, those shia's that believe Imams a.s are given the power to intercede for you before Allah swt, in the knowledge that only Allah swt can grant your Dua , in my understanding of the Fatwah, is allowed.
     
    Those shia's that believe Imams hear dua, grant dua, and have been given power by Allah swt to do this all independently (so it isn't Allah granting a dua, but an Imam) are comitting shirk! Only Allah swt can grant your dua.
     
    Those shia's that say 'Please pray to the Imams a.s to assist us and grant us success' have comitted shirk. The belief is, please ask for the Imams a.s to interecede for us before Allah swt, with the belief the one who ultimately grants dua is Allah swt and decides whether or not to grant it, or what to do.
     
    The Fatwah also states, nothing in the universe occurs independent of Allah swt. So the belief Allah swt created the universe, and is is now the Imams a.s given the power to control and decide on it's matters constitutes to ascribing partners to Allah swt, and such people are the ghuluw polytheists, upon whom i have heard reports of the Imams a.s dissociating from them.
     
    Here is the answer i got via email:
     
    In the Name of God, the Most High
     
    Everything is in God's hand. He can grant the power of cure to someone else just as he gave it to Prophet Jesus. In fact, it is Allah who grants a dua or fulfill a wish. There is a concept in Shia Islam which is called tawassol. The belief in Tawassol or mediation of an Imam or a perfect human being or a saint – in Shiite religion or in any other religions – is derived from the Quran and tradition. 
    The Holy Quran says:
    "یا أَیُّهَا الَّذینَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَ ابْتَغُوا إِلَیْهِ الْوَسیلَةَ"
    "O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him."
     
    In reality, this verse guides those believers who truly believe in God and worship him sincerely. The verse implies that piety and nearness to God is easier to achieve through its means and causes.
     
    The next point to mention and that should be kept into account is that Tawassol (invocation) and seeking the help of the Prophet (s) or the Imam (a.s.) never means that they act independently of God. Similarly, none of the causes existing in this universe should be considered as effective independently of God, or else it would be shirk (polytheistic). Generally speaking, there are some Muslims who, as the Quran says, have not attained the status of perfect faith and a real monotheist. Perhaps, such people may, while relying on material causes, associate a partner for God.
     
    May Allah grant you success.

    Shaykh Mufeed(one of the greatest shia scholars) said:

    And I say that the messengers from humanity of Allah, be He exalted, and His prophets and the Imams from his khulafa are contingent created beings, afflictions are attached to them and pleasures occur for them, their bodies are made to grow by food and decreased by the passing of time, death is put (?) for them, and passing away is permitted upon them. And the consensus of the people of tawhid is upon this doctrine.And those belonging to (the heresy of) tafwid (those who believe Allah created the Imams and then delegated the ruling of creation and giving sustenance to the universe to them) and the categories of the ghulat (the exaggerators of the status of the Imams) have opposed us in it.


    دثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه ره قال حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم عن أبيه عن ياسر الخادم قال قلت للرضا ع ما تقول في التفويض فقال إن الله تبارك و تعالى فوض إلى نبيه ص أمر دينه فقال ما آتاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَ ما نَهاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانْتَهُوا فأما الخلق و الرزق فلا ثم قال ع إن الله عز و جل يقول اللَّهُ خالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ و هو يقول اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ رَزَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ هَلْ مِنْ شُرَكائِكُمْ مَنْ يَفْعَلُ مِنْ ذلِكُمْ مِنْ شَيْ‏ءٍ سُبْحانَهُ وَ تَعالى‏ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ‏

    From Yāsir, the servant, said, I said to al-Riḍā (عليه السلام),
    ‘What do you say about al-Tafwīd?’ And he (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (تبارك و تعالى), delegated (fawwaḍa) to His prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) affairs of His religion’, and He said: “Take whatever the Messenger gives to you, and deny for yourself whatever he prohibits” (59:7).

    As for (delegating) the creation and sustenance, then No! He (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) says “Allāh is the creator of all things’ (3:16) and He says “It is Allāh, He has created you, then He has given you sustenance, then He has made you die, then He has brought you back to life, are there any of your partners who can does of that any of these things? Glory be to Allāh, and High is He from the partners (they attribute)” (30:40)

    My own comments:
    'Al-Kaf'ami is not to be confused with Al Kafi. Bihar Al Anwar is merely a massive compilation of everything, and compiled in 1600-1700 AD, certainly not our main texts or primary resources. Interestingly, the first time we ever see this dua appear is 905 years after hijrah, which is incredibly suspect.

Aboo Ja`far Al-Thaanee (Imaam Al-Taqee Al-Jawaad) said: "Once Amir al-Mu’minin `Alee عليه السلام came with al-Hassan and al-Husayn and he was holding the hand of Salman for support. He entered the sacred Mosque in Makka and sat down. Then a good looking and well dressed man came. He offered the greeting of peace to Amir al-Mu’minin `Alee عليه السلام who answered his greetings likewise and he sat down. He then said, "I will ask you three questions. If you would answer them I will acknowledge that the people who have acted against you in the matters of leadership after the Holy Prophet (s.a) they have acted against their own selves. Their actions have taken away peace from them in this world as well in the next life. If it would be otherwise, (you can answer) then you and those people will be the same." Amir al-Mu’minin`Alee عليه السلام said, "Ask whatever you would like." He said, "Tell about the man who sleeps. Where does his spirit go?" Tell about the man, how he remembers and forgets? Tell me about the man how do his children become similar to the aunts and uncles?" Amir al-Mu’minin `Alee عليه السلام turned to al-Hassan and said, "O Aboo Muhammad, answer him." The narrator has said that al-Hassan answered his questions. The man then said,
    "I testify that there is no lord besides Allah and I continue to testify to this fact. I testify that Muhammad صلّى الله عليه وآله is the Messenger of Allah and I continue to testify to this fact I testify that you are the executor of the will of the Messenger of Allah and that you are the in charge of this task ((Leadership with Divine Authority) with His authorization." He pointed out to Amir al-Mu’minin عليه السلام with his hand. He then said, "I continue to testify to this fact." "I testify that you are the executor of his (Amir al-Mu’minin’s عليه السلام will and the in charge of this task ((Leadership with Divine Authority) by His authorization after him (Amir alMu’minin عليه السلام " He pointed out with his hand to al-Hassan عليه السلام.

    I offer you my greeting of peace O Amir al-Mu’minin عليه السلام and praay to Allah to grant you blessings and holiness." He then stood up and left. Amir al-Mu’minin عليه السلام said, "O Aboo Muhammad follow him and see where went." Al-Hassan ibn `Alee عليه السلام went out to find out (and came back) and said, "As soon as he stepped out of the Mosque I could not figure out in which direction of the earth of Allah did he disappear. I returned to Amir al-Mu’minin عليه السلام and informed him." He said, "O Aboo Muhammad, do you know him?" I said, Allah, the Messenger of Allah and Amir al-Mu’minin عليه السلام know best."

    1. Yasser Habib Believes that Umulmimineen Aisha killed Muhammed s.a.w, along with Hafsah. This is not the belief held by the majority of our scholars. Accusing Umm Aisha of one of the greatest crimes simply lowers our credibility, and makes us look like a utter cult of conspiracy theorists.  Sheikh Mansour Leghaei, well known in the islamic seminaries i believe, and he has been given praise by a student i know who has studied at the Hawzahs for almost a decade as being someone know, has refuted Yasser Habib indirectly here: http://www.askthesheikh.com/was-the-holy-prophet-poisoned-or-killed-did-he-die-a-natural-death/
    2. Yasser Habib believes that Umulmimineen Aisha commited adultery and slept around after the death of Muhammed s.a.w. We shia's do not hold this belief.
    3. Yasser Habib believes it is okay to hurl abuse, insults, and celebrate the death day of Umm Aisha. Our imams a.s never condoned such behaviour at all. Ayatullah Khamanei (rh) states:
    " The commander of the Faithful, Imam Ali (pbuh) treated... Aisha in such a respectful manner. He treated a woman, who had come to fight against him, with the utmost respect because she was the Prophet’s wife; otherwise the Commander of the Faithful (as) would not stand on a ceremony with anyone: hence, no such disrespect should ever occur.”

    Do not forget to make a dua for Allah azwj to condemn the owners and undo their efforts. 
    This is an open request for all: remember to ask Allah azwj earnestly to condemn the owners of that channel (the majoos) and thwart their efforts to ridicule our madhab.
    Do not spread their videos - you will give them valuable backlinks. Do not post their video's on shiachat, do not even say the name of the channel or give them any publicity whatsoever. Ignore them.

    The people who create these video's have a good tendency to quote out of context or distort ideas and take one clip out of an entire lecture which may or may not be representative.
    May Allah thwart the efforts made by the owner of the channel [ i know you asked us not to focus on that, but it is relevant due to the above point i made].
    I solemnly advise anyone, a sunni or a shia, not to regard that youtube channel as a means to learn about shia Islam. It is based on batil, quoting out of context, or quoting others - in other videos- we shia's consider deviated ourselves.

  20. Completely Agree
    guest050817 got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in A reminder about insulting revered sunni symbols   
    I've said this before on another thread sister, but anyone who actually believes and promotes the idea that we shia must abandon key and core beliefs, is actually advocating something that is very close to Kuffr. It is disgusting, abhorrent, and absolutely not what the vast majority of our ulema and our aimmah asws who have advocated peace and tolerance and 'unity' [as a summation of this] are saying.
    If you know anyone who has said , let us compromise on ijma [consensus] beliefs in shia islam for the sake of appeasing our sunni brothers, such as abandoning the belief that the caliphs wrongfully took the role of caliph, or abandoning the remembrance of Hussain ibn Ali (as), then do let me know, because i wholeheartedly condemn that person too. So far, i have not met any serious scholar who has propagated that belief.
    Just to point out, the purpose of this thread is about cursing revered symbols of our brothers in the ahlus-sunnah. When our Imams asws issue clear commands, and the most learned of our ulema in the dominant majority do likewise, it is upon us to hear and to obey.
    As someone who has sunni family, has had sunni best friends and regularly interacts with sunni's, unity to me is not compromising belief, but agreeing on what is common, recognising what unites us is more than what is different - but still our differences are important ones, but there are ways to discuss them. So in a sense, it is more than just peaceful coexistence you would have with someone who worships Jesus Christ, or an atheist, but rather, acknowledging the strong bond of Tawheed, Nabuwah, Quran and a myriad of social and ethical issues that you and they hold in common. It is peaceful coexistence as muslim brothers and sisters, rather than as human beings.

    Some interesting questions and thoughts brother.
    I guess i have to make clear that the main purpose of this thread was less in promoting shia-sunni unity, and more on imploring our users and moderators to follow the clear guidelines given to us by our ulema and aimmah asws.
    Now , i am someone who has more sunni relatives [ as a shia myself ] than the majority of SC users. The majority of my best friends [due to chance] have been sunni's, and i regularly visit sunni family, and offer salah behind sunni's. 
    It depends on how we 'define' unity. In my eyes, it means peaceful coexistence, respect of the symbols of others, and to unite in what is common,and agree to disagree  - or cordially and respectfully discuss on what is different.
