  1. Based on your stance, I am making a clear distinction between Muhammad the Prophet and Muhammad the Administrator. As a matter of fact, go back and read my comments from PG9 onwards where I refer to Muhammad as Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) or Muhammad depending on if we are talking prophetic or political office. So Muhammad occupied the office of State-Administrator; RasoolAllah did not occupy this office. You are the one who has made that distinction. So how can Abu Bakr be the successor of Rasool when "Rasool" did not occupy that office. You can call him and others: Khali
  2. Of course not. A rhetorical question expects no answer. A leading question expects a specific answer. The style, tone and approach were completely different but we can discuss this on the other thread I create just on this topic. Hey Stupy - created a separate thread on this topic:
  3. From my vantage point, we have 2 options here. Option 1: Caliph Abu Bakr was correct in declaring those Muslims that 'challenged' the writ of the State as apostates and going to war against them. Since he is classified as a Caliph-e-Rashid, this would mean his actions were in complete compliance of the Quran and Sunnah. Therefore, 1) All those who opposed Imam Ali (عليه السلام) at Jamal should also be considered apostates. 2) All those who opposed Imam Ali (عليه السلام) at Siffin should be considered apostates. 3) From Yazid's vantage point, Imam Hussain (عليه السلام)
  4. I was able to write a post on this issue: @starlight @El Cid @Diaz @YoungSkiekh313
  5. The World Health Organization defines Infertility as, "Infertility and subfertility affect a significant proportion of humanity. WHO has calculated that over 10% of women are inflicted – women who have tried unsuccessfully, and have remained in a stable relationship for five years or more. Estimates in women using a two year time frame, result in prevalence values 2.5 times larger. " The map below shows how different countries are impacted by this disease across the world. Obviously, included in these numbers are Muslims. So then the question is how should Muslims and specifical
  6. I was going to use it as a pun but then saw your post.
  7. what will really blow your mind is when you make keema (ground beef or chicken), you can just add potatoes'o'brien in it. Keema 101: 2 lbs (1kg) keema. put enough oil in a pot to cover the bottom put some onions to fry (or buy pre-fried onions) add keema 1 teaspoon red chili 1 teaspoon tumeric 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ginger 1 teaspoon garlic 1 packet shan masala mix add 2-3 cup of water cook for 1 hour add potatoes/peas/bell pepper and cook for up to 30 min Buy some packets of naan and paratha...en
  8. Yes, I wish I had seen this post back in 2018. I would have been able to help the sister out. Science and our ulema have given us plenty of options so no divorce or re-marrying is required. Inshallah I will write a post on this issue that I hope gets pinned to the top of the Social forum.
  9. @El Cid, When I was single, I used to live off tabarruk in Muharram, Safar. Then in Ramadan, I would go to the local mosques every day since they always served iftar. So that covered 3 full months. Next, thanks to our rich religious calendar, there are always majlis, milad, etc going on so guaranteed food...yay!!! All in all - almost 6 months was covered by religious activities + food served The rest of year, I learned to cook rice and make daal. Go to your grocery store and buy potatoes'o'brian. Put them in a bowl, add some red chili, tumeric and fry. I have also d
  10. @Ansur Shiat Ali @ShiaofAli12 @Cool The magnanimity of the Shiah is that we are defending Umar saying was repentant per Tabari, Bukhari and Nomani The hypocrisy of the sunni is that they will call Umar a blasphemer and creator of "fasad-fil-ardh" just to try to win an argument that they have already lost. Munafiq is as munafiq does.
  11. Yes let's discuss both. But this topic is about Umar. So whats the verdict?
  12. Fair enough - we can start that topic too but this topic is about Umar. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) "disobedience" was out of respect whereas Umar's disobedience was insolence. Back to Umar...
  13. This is purely an academic discussion and not meant to offend anyone. I am trying to draw parallels between 4 different islamic civil wars (battles). Ridda Wars - Apostasy Wars under the reign of Caliph Abu Bakr against those either stopped being Muslims or refused to acknowledge the leadership of Abu Bakr. Battle of Jamal: Caliph Ali (عليه السلام) against Aisha, Talha, Zubayr and others Battle of Siffin: Caliph Ali (عليه السلام) against Muawiya Battle of Karbala: Yazid against Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) @Cherub786 stated: The justification for Ridda (A
