  1. For one, he has better akhlaq than you and is much more credible in his academic contribution to Islam. ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : هِمَّةُ السُّفَهاء الرِّوايَةُ ، وهِمَّةُ العُلَماءِ الدِّرايَةُ. Imam Ali (as) said, ‘The ambition of the foolish is to report [traditions] whereas the ambition of the scholars is to understand the traditions.’[bihar al-Anwar, v. 2, p. 160, no. 13]
  2. Bilal relentlessly defended Imam Ali (as) and Hazrat Fatimat-uz-Zahra (SA) and their ideals and paid great respect to Imam Ali (as) in public, which arose some criticism. When asked the reason for his conduct reminding him that it was Abubakr who bought his freedom, Bilal replied: "Ali has more right on me than Abubakr because, Abubakr saved me from slavery and the tortures (of this world,) although with patience and submissive demeanor, I would have been on the right path to heaven, But Imam Ali (as) spared me from everlasting torment and eternal fire of Hell. This is because by loving and supporting Vilayat and recognizing his superiority over others, I would become worthy of heaven and its eternal blessings." His defiance of Abubakr led to his exile to Syria. At the last moments of his life in Medina, in the company of the daughter of the Prophet (SAW) and Amirul-Muminin (as), he recited the following poem: "I was saved by God and not by Abubakr, If it wasn't for God, I would have been savagely killed by hyenas. God honored me, Hence goodness is found only from Him. Your will find me heretical and I'm not heretic like them." Bilal went to Damascus (Syria) and lived there for a while, between 18 to 21 Hejira. During the reign of Caliph Umar, Bilal died of a plague. His blessed body was buried in Damascus at a graveyard in Syria, which is a place of pilgrimage of faithful Muslims till today." 23 http://www.imamreza.net/eng/imamreza.php?id=4230
  3. We cannot fathom the wisdom behind the creations of God but the reason why angels cannot sin is not because they lack freewill [otherwise they wouldn't have questioned Allah in Surah Baqarah on the creation of Adam [baqarah:30]] but because they lack desires. The Commander of the Faithful (a) said, ‘Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desire, He gave the beasts desire without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desire is better than the angels whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse that the beasts.’[bihar al-Anwar, v. 60, p. 299, no. 5] This link explains more elaborately: http://www.al-islam.org/faith_reason/18.htm That's precisely why Messengers of God were men and not angels. Angels were the medium through which God conveyed His Message to the Prophets and the Messengers. Now, as Shi'i Itna Asharis we do believe that the Messengers of God were all Infallibles - that is, they could sin if they wanted but out of their own volition they chose not to because they witnessed with the eyes of their heart the ugly reality of sins. This is because had Messengers been fallibles who committed sins and disobeyed God, it would have nullified the purpose with which God had appointed these Messengers as they would have conveyed the message of God to the people to not commit sins, while committing sins themselves. People would not have taken them seriously, and there would no role-model/example for them to look up to, as to how God wants them to worship Him or obey Him.

  10. According to Sayyid Sistani: 1756. It is Makrooh to fast on 'Ashura (10th of Muharram). It is also Makrooh to fast on the day about which one is not sure whether it is the day of 'Arafa or Eid-ul-Azha. You may also want to read this article.
  11. Each poet has his own style. You cannot expect everyone to write poetry the way you do and as someone who writes poetry, you have to appreciate this fact. There would be no creativity if that were to be. It's literalness is the beauty of this poetry - that it can make the reader visualize the events as though they are witnessing it, experiencing it.
  12. Mustafa, you can read about the loyalty of Al-Abbas here: http://en.rafed.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1215&catid=170:al-abbas&Itemid=965
