    Can I convert into Shia??

    The question still remains unanswered; pity. This is my last post on this thread as I don't wish to waste any more of my time on this as I see this is going nowhere except in circles.

    That's quite an assumption on your part. The Quran, if translated correctly, without reaading Hadiths into it, has an internal consistency which makes sense. Hadiths contain certain writings that outright contradict the Quran but are also internally inconsistent. How do you reconcile the two? As Sam says, this drives a wedge in your thinking process, and the only way for you to make them both true is to become capable of "doublethink". I'll leave it at that, as so far there has been no serious attempt to answer the question. Instead there's been a defensive stance taken on what I've said. That was not my intention. I was merely presenting something for the OP to consider, as people can get so caught up in which set of Hadiths are the correct ones (Sunni vs Shia), and killing in the name of religion (hadiths) rather than following the Qur'an. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uUTV8ojTkdE

    This doesn't answer the question. I'm not interested in what sunnis think of Shia and vice versa. The question fundamentally remains how can you verify any of the Hadiths which are essentially hearsay. This question remains unanswered.

    Do you have the references where "it is clearly said in Qur'an that we must follow Ahlul Bayt"?

    If the Hadiths can be unequivocally proven then, yes, it would make sense to follow. How does one prove the Imams or the prophet actually said what the Hadiths claim they had said? You're hitting around the question, but not actually answering it. Take Nahjul balagha, for example, how can we know Imam Ali had actually written it? Was it not written/published 150 years after the passing of Imam Ali? We face the same problem again. 1. If you follow Hadiths you are essentially following men. 2. If you follow Quran you are following what the prophet gave you.

    The problem is, again, they are referring to Hadith (written 100-200) years after the prophet in order to interpret the Quran. How can we know that the prophet even said what they claim he said, or even the Imams had said what the hadithers claim they had said? 100-200 years is a very long time, that's about 8 or 9 generations with no original witnesses. Are you saying we are to believe these Hadith writers? Essentially we are following Hadith writers (not the prophet or the Imams), not Quran, if we follow this method, no? The Qur'an says that it is God who guides. It also tells us to use our brain as the speaker in the first video has said. Qur'an is guaranteed protection by God, Hadiths have no such guarantee. All the information sunnis and Shias have for their religions comes from Hadiths, and the Quran serves as an add-on. I say this because without Hadiths they are unable to make sense of the Quran alone. Which means they essentially rely on Hadith, not Quran, which means they follow men (Hadith writers) and not God.

    I don't know that ISIS are following Qur'an only. nor do I know that salafis or wahabis follow Qur'an only. This point is also refuted in the audio if you'd like to have a listen. It is not my intention to have an argument as such but I would like very much for someone to come up with a credible refutation to all the points made in the audio. So far, there has been none.

    Looks like this is going nowhere. It's precisely what Sam Gerrans is getting at. A Muslim can tell you nothing about God without reference to Hadith written by men two hundred years or so after the prophet had passed. 1. Qur'an makes no mention of Hadith or mahdi. It claims to be complete, a complete guidance (which means we don't need anything else) The Qur'an is saying this, not men. 2. Hadith says you must follow Hadith (Ahlul Bayt) plus Qur'an, and if you don't you'll most certainly go astray. In other words what it's saying is we must follow the interpretation of the qur'an given to us by Hadith writers, otherwise we go to hell. I know which I would choose. I would choose the words recorded by the prophet over words concocted by men.

    It's written in Hadiths which are hearsay.

    Can I convert into Shia??

    How can we know that the prophet instructed his followers to hold on to the qur'an and Ahlul Bayt?

    How can one stray from way of truth if one is following the Qur'an?

    What is dangerous about following the Quran?
  13. Have you listened to this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F-BKegiUac https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhvnW3_jc9E&t=371s Makes a lot of sense.

    Trump's Jerusalem decision

    I could not have said it better myself. These fake Jews of Khazaria have had their own independent Jewish homeland since 1928, Birobidjan, on the border of Russia. There is no reason on God's earth for them to be occupying the land of the semites, the Palestinians. They should go back home and leave the Palestinians in peace.
