  1. According to Ahmedis Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) used to stammer, something which he inherited from Prophet Musa ((عليه السلام)): Do we have anything reliable in Shia & Sunni sources which support this claim?
  2. Salam brother Check out this thread where brother @Islamic Salvation has shared some of the most authentic narrations on Imam Mahdi (a.j): Also check out this collection of authentic narrations published by brother @Qa'im: http://www.imamiyya.com/hadith/qiyam Wsalam
  3. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide us all, didn't know it could go this far. However I don't think that WhoIsHusssain wants to promote that kind of views, rather they just want to inspire people through Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) on doing good deeds, being kind to one another etc and hopefully there might be non-Muslims as well who get inspired and eventually guided to Islam. I also think it's obvious in itself that such things would be prohibited (as Islam has its own laws, as in other religions or countries) and I'm pretty sure that their intention is not to try portraying Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) as a liberal or something like that, rather they want to inspire others through common grounds (generosity, helping others, standing up for your rights).
  4. Salam I did not claim that it was fabricated, nor do I throw away a hadith just because it is 'weak'. However when a hadith has a sanad full of Ghulats, then it'd be better to put it aside as the chances that it may not have been said by the Imam ((عليه السلام)) are greater.
  5. If you're talking about the hadith which says that Imam Mahdi (a.j) will dig up their graves and hang them, then it is extremely weak: http://www.revivingalislam.com/2010/06/hadeeth-aboo-bakr-Umar-hung-from-tree.html?m=1 The chain contain mostly Ghulats (extremists) and therefore can not be relied upon.
  6. Sorry, I should've wrote (if) we say that it was his intention.. However, aren't there a lot of narrations stating how he wanted to reform the Ummah, stop the oppression etc? Also didn't he go to Kufa with the thought of getting their support to stand against Yazid l.a and eventually get the caliphate? I don't see why there would be an issue with the Imam (عليه السلام) wanting to get the caliphate so he can guide the people to the sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and help the opressed people..
  7. Salam alykom Just a question, even though Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) did what he did with the intention of getting the caliphate. Can it still not be argued that Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) wanted to do that because he stood up for justice, freedom and wanted to reform the Ummah due to the oppression that was happening because of Yazid l.a? Why would it be wrong to use Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) as an inspiration in standing up for justice today, in the way www.whoishussain.org does for example? Or what is it about today's view of Imam Hussain's ((عليه السلام)) mission that is not correct? Sorry just trying to understand the discussion you all have had in this thread. Also, is this sayying from Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) authentic (or at least reliable in someway)?
  8. The matter is not as simple as black & white. I wouldn't rush into calling Sunnis in general as disbelievers as there are hadiths implying that they are Muslims (not mo'mins though) and their destiny is left to God's mercy, and He will do with them as He wills. Note that I don't know the grading of the second hadith. For more information about this topic read this article: http://purifiedhousehold.com/salvation-of-non-Shias/
  9. While at it, how do we consider what is Ghina and what is not when it comes to Nasheeds with vocals only? Sayyed Sistani says that even if a Nasheed is sung (without instruments) in a 'Ghina' form then it would be haram to listen to: Anyone who knows if for example Maher Zain's nasheeds without instruments would be permissible to listen to such as this one? Or would this be considered as ghina?
  10. @Ibn al-Hussain Thank you for your detailed response. In your opinion, do you think the hadiths regarding this issue are clear and not open for reinterpretation (that most non-Muslims should be fought, we should not live in their countries, be harsh against them etc) or do you think that there are proof as well for what most jurists believe today regarding non-Muslims and Islam being a religion of peace? What comes in mind is this verse for example: Or these about peace: According to narrations that have reached us, would you say that we are allowed to live in the west, show kindness to non-Muslims etc as long as we can practice our faith freely and openly in those places? Or is this just something that today's scholars have 'sugar-coated' and something Islam is completely against according to our Imams ((عليه السلام)) and the Qur'an? I remember reading somewhere online (probably a Sunni site) that when we become a citizen in a country belonging to non-Muslims, we agree to abide by their laws etc (like a pact) and therefore we should or must not break their laws since as Muslims we are not allowed to break trusts (even against non-Muslims), it was somewhere along those lines. Has any of our jurists argued this way and would you see this interpretation as justified? JazakumAllah khair
  11. Salam alykom brother Wouldn't most of the countries in the west count as Dar al Sulh (or a country with whom a peace treaty is made) considering that Muslims there can practice their faith openly and are secured? What about the Quranic verses that talk about making peace with non-Muslims if possible etc, and didn't the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).a) make peace treaties with those who didn't wage war against Muslims and so forth? Otherwise, wouldn't it mean that what ISIS is doing in the west is pretty much justified?
  12. Sayyed Khamenei's response: Question: Salam alykom Are we allowed to kill dogs without a specific reason or fear for diseases? Answer: Salamun `alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu There is no problem in killing an annoying/harmful animal unless it is owned by another person but hurting a harmless animal is impermissible.
  13. According to the office of Sayyed Sistani in London: Question: Salam alykom Are we allowed to kill dogs without a specific reason or fear for diseases? Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful It is allowed in case of sufficient excuse Wassalamu Alaykum This makes sense when you look at the bigger picture and not only in one or two specific hadiths. This also seem to be in line with the Sunni view that such hadiths have a context behind them, and were not meant generally as you should go out and kill all dogs you can find.
  14. Salam brother Check this out regarding the authenticity of Musnad Zayd ((رضي الله عنه)):
