  1. No way -- there would have been nothing to hide behind! Barely any forestry to camouflage in at the least.
  2. Surah Ghafir 40:60 SAHIH INTERNATIONAL And your Lord says, "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible. A prayer or supplication that is given with earnest, compassion, and truth will always be answered.
  3. Hello! I am sorry, could you further explain what your post is asking?
  4. Knowledgeable and good points but keep in mind not everything is a battle here for you -- refuting arguments for the sake of refutation will not end great. But at least you don't jump on this forum saying " rafidhi dirty kafir pigs why u guys worshipping Ali huh! ?! Exposed bro!!" Overall you have fair posts and fair questions and I hope you learn more and more.
  5. !! that awkward moment when you revive a 6 year old thread . -- just playing haha, good suggestion
  6. i haven't seen that denomination around -- always good to have others! Anyways, welcome to the site and I hope you learn many things here. that being said : are you comparing a Muslims view of the definition of a deity to a Christians view? If you say Christians believe that those who love God fully are non-sinners, does that mean they are God too? Or are you trying to say that if one is infallible, they are considered God? In Islam we have the topic of infalliblity, a state we say that is reserved for all of our prominent Prophets and Imams of Islam. When we say infallibility, we say that this is defined by the state of one that do have the ability to sin, but choose not to. We say Jesus Christ (pbuh) is infallible under this regard. The one who is infallible will most definitely have a close connection to God, but is this what you were referring to when you meant ' is God ' ?
  7. Do you consider yourself a shia like those you just named? Is there something you disagree with when it comes to those people?
  8. Congrats!! SG and DD should get tips on baby names from here!! my suggestion is Ali John Muhammed Deuteronomy II -- this will stop any future baby naming problems i guarantee it
  9. You've found a great place to start this journey --- it's also amazing because you will not only learn more about Shia Islam on this site, but if you go through our forums you find amazing information and details about Judaism, Christianity, and sunni Islam. This is a very good start for you. Addressing some concerns you may have -- 1. One of the brothers and sisters on here can definitely reference you too our taqqiyah' threads , this concerning your situation with going to Sunni mosques and praying like a Sunni muslim. Personally, I don't go to them but I did go to a sunni Islamic primary school for about 8 years and it was pretty good, for the most part. You should definitely give a shot at searching for Shia mosques and Hussainiyat' in your area. ( if you dont mind saying, some members may be able to help you here if you can tell us what part of the world you live in ) 2.We have websites like https://www.al-islam.org/ which can further develop your knowledge of shia Islam considering history, jurisprudence, and overall concerns and regulations; we have websites like http://www.almizan.org/ if you are looking for quranic interpretations and translations by Shia ulama and scholars, in this case specifically our Allama Muhammad Hussein Al-Tabatabai, may Allah bless his eminence. 3. Our Shahada is the same as any muslim in the world. " Ashadu an la'ilaha Ilallah, wa'ashadu anna Muhammad ar'rasullallah " . However, in Shia Islam we consider an ending such as ' Wa'ashadu anna Ali'an wali'Allah " , this last part being purely and utterly your choice which is permissable, but not wajib in any way. I consider it definitely impermissible when it comes to Sallat but I think there are a minority Shia who also use this in Sallat. Any way this is a good place to start and I can assure you there are numerous other members who are more knowledgeable then me who can answer your concerns much more clear. Thanks for being here and I hope you learn not only about the beauty of Islam and the path of Ahlulbayt, but also of other religions.
  10. Heloooo can our sunni brothers get off the mut'ah and azadari threads and contribute to this one, I am very curious tank u
  11. Sahih Muslim: I went along with Husain bin Sabrah and 'Amr bin Muslim to Zaid bin Arqam (May Allah be pleased with them) and, as we sat by his side, Husain said to him, "Zaid, you acquired great merits, you saw Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), listened to him talking, fought by his side in (different) battles, and offered Salat (prayer) behind him. Zaid, you have indeed earned great merits. Could you narrate to us what you heard from Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)?" Zaid said, "By Allah! I have grown old and have almost spent up my age and I have forgotten some of the things which I remembered in connection with Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), so accept what I narrate to you, do not compel me to narrate what I fail to narrate". He then said, "One day Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) stood up to deliver a Khutbah at a watering place known as Khumm between Makkah and Al-Madinah. He praised Allah, extolled Him, and exhorted (us) and said, 'Amma Ba'du. O people, I am a human being. I am about to receive a messenger (the angel of death) from my Rubb and I will respond to Allah's Call, but I am leaving with you two weighty things: the first is the Book of Allah, in which there is right guidance and light, so hold fast to the Book of Allah and adhere to it.' He exhorted (us to hold fast) to the Book of Allah and then said, 'The second is the members of my household, I remind you (to be kind) to the members of my family. I remind you (to be kind) to the members of my family. Husain said to Zaid, "Who are the members of his household, O Zaid? Aren't his wives the members of his family?" Thereupon Zaid said, "His wives are the members of his family. (But here) the members of his family are those for whom Zakat is forbidden". He asked, "Who are they?" Zaid said, "Ali and the offspring of 'Ali, 'Aqil and the offspring of 'Aqil and the offspring of Ja'far and the offspring of 'Abbas." Husain asked, "For all of them the acceptance of Zakat is forbidden?" Zaid (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "Yes". (http://sunnah.com/riyadussaliheen/1/346) if you would like to take this narration then this shows a clear dissociation with the Ahlul-Bayt the prophet mentioned and meant during Khumm and the literal meaning of ahlul-bayt. So with this narration, then no, his wives nor the sahaba were part of his 'AhlulBayt'.
  12. I'm also a little confused.. It's true Sistani is my marja and we must always follow him-- but I don't see why all other believers have Eid on Wednesday because of a moon sighting in my area, and I have to wait because I have to follow a different area's sighting :/
  13. Sweet , and yeah sorry I was trying to explain my wording it on a Jesus is God kind of angle but I mightve went a little extra-- the only reason that elisha was able to do that and furthermore the only reason why Jesus (as) was able to do it as well was because God gave them this gift as willing servants. What I was trying to get at was that: if we do consider Jesus Lord because of the very specific miracles like raising the dead etc why do we not consider elisha and Exekiel alike as a kind of God as well if these are also reasons as to why Jesus can be considered God . What else can we say about the divinity of Jesus if not his miracles?
  14. Yeah I noticed that this does seem to be the general view -- what does it fully tell me though? I'm coming to the conclusion that thinking of it this ways means that Jesus as a human can possibly have limited knowledge, but as a God can have all the knowledge. If we say Jesus is all God and all human then how can we distinguish their knowledge?
  15. I was reading on an eid post today and I read of the possibility that Eid can definitely be on the Wednesday, 6th of July.
  16. cool stuff, So we can say for sure that through the holy spirit, they were able to do these miraculous things. So does that mean that God gave them this power or Jesus? Or maybe both if you are looking at it through a trinity angle? Also, is it not fair to say that in a way, Elisha and Ezekiel were given Godly powers, through the holy spirit, but nonetheless a miracle attributed to Jesus Christ (pbuh) ?
  17. Okay cool, So if these people were given the power to resurrect the dead , don't they now have a characteristic like that of Jesus , and wouldn't they be considered more special then other prophets or people. I'm just curious as to why these weren't like the first ppl I heard of when I Christianity as not everyone is able to do that
  18. is it really possible to only have 29 days?
  19. Distorted does not negate it's entirety. Whether the claim of it's corruption is true or not it still is considered a holy book and deserves to be analyzed.
  20. Ran across this bible verse, specifically 2 Kings 4:32-37 32 When Elisha came into the house, he saw the child lying dead on his bed. 33 So he went in and shut the door behind the two of them and prayed to the Lord. 34 Then he went up and lay on the child, putting his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands. And as he stretched himself upon him, the flesh of the child became warm. 35 Then he got up again and walked once back and forth in the house, and went up and stretched himself upon him. The child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. 36 Then he summoned Gehazi and said, “Call this Shunammite.” So he called her. And when she came to him, he said, “Pick up your son.” 37 She came and fell at his feet, bowing to the ground. Then she picked up her son and went out. Does this tell me that Elisha was able to raise the dead? I feel like if this was the case then I am surprised I've never heard of this; it is a miracle that Jesus was able to do this as well? Also a similar thing happens in Ezekiel 37 -- verses 1 to 14 respectfully, although I need a little clarification on this because It's hard to decipher who is saying what in this context. -- but if I am reading it right, Ezekiel here was also able to raise the dead? More specifically raise many of the dead. Shouldn't Ezekiel and Elisha be people we should hold high as they were given the similar gift as Jesus Christ (as) ? I'm only saying this because I've never heard of these two and I wish I did, but more suprised that they aren't as 'popular' as I would've thought. Sorry, vague question on this post -- I just look for clarification really. thanks.
  21. I noticed that I can't refresh my activity anymore like I used to, it would take 40-50 seconds and it would always kill my page everytime I tried to refresh. My internet is working fine to that isn't the problem, maybe the website is having little glitches? anyone else noticing this or is it just me?
