  1. Thank you. May God Protect and Guide Me always. My conscience simply fails to agree to the fact that following a group of people, who are the descendants of the Prophet and have taught and given us so much wisdom with their teachings, including respecting others religious views, forgiving people, doing good, giving charity, following God etc is bad in any way. With them resides the real teachings of the Prophet, ofcourse. Because they are his direct descendants. Its just like - you know most about your father and your children know most about you and your father. Ofcourse, your sons and daughters and those really close to you know most about you and your teachings, because you love teaching them (ofcourse). And you cannot deny the fact that Ali a.s was the most loved person for the Prophet in the whole Ummah.
  2. You did not read properly. I gave clear indications that my theory is that "he WAS the successor". So Why would I even look at the point of "Ali was also appointed by people". Nevermind. You do not understand my post. It would be a waste of time trying to elaborate the most obvious points pointed out by my post. "It is not the eyes that grow blind, but the hearts." 22:46
  3. 1. Allah appoints leaders/successors. (Don't believe me? Read the Quran) 2. Abu Bakr was appointed by people. (Don't believe me? Read the Hadiths, Google) 3. So, the conclusion, Ghadeer must be the place where Allah must have asked Prophet pbuh to appoint Ali a.s as the next successor. See folks, what happened according to me is: "Haters will broadcast your failure but whisper your success" - Tupac Shakur That's what happened. Ali's haters, did not wanted him to be the successor so they tried to suppress this thing. The problem here is that by holding grudges against Shias and their Imams, you are completely missing the most important part! That is, the knowledge the prophet and his household gave you. There are so many great sayings of the Imams. Their wisdom is infinite, just read the books and you will know. (But I know you won't read). Believe me, you are missing out the main thing because of this battle of yours. The wisdom of the Allah, which he gave to his Prophet, which he gave to Ali which he gave to his sons. They explain to you Quranic verses in easy language, they teach you life. What else could a man thirsty for knowledge want?
  4. Alaikum - as salam. I disagree with your answer. Your answer will make one conclude that Quran is contradicting with its statements. What you mention specifies "condition". If such was the thing, no man would ever have been taught about anything related to God as God wants them to change their conditon first. I think this verse ( which you posted ) refers to those for whom guidance exists but they still choose misguidance because of their ignorance.
  5. So let us take a look at Verse 165 of Surah 6, Quran: [Shakir 6:165] And He it is Who has made you successors in the land and raised some of you above others by (various) grades, that He might try you by what He has given you; surely your Lord is quick to requite (evil), and He is most surely the Forgiving, the Merciful.[Pickthal 6:165] He it is Who hath placed you as viceroys of the earth and hath exalted some of you in rank above others, that He may try you by (the test of) that which He hath given you. Lo! Thy Lord is swift in prosecution, and Lo! He verily is Forgiving, Merciful.[Yusufali 6:165] It is He Who hath made you (His) agents, inheritors of the earth: He hath raised you in ranks, some above others: that He may try you in the gifts He hath given you: for thy Lord is quick in punishment: yet He is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.[Pooya/Ali Commentary 6:165] The word khala-if, in this verse, means deputies. Every human being has been created to manifest the divine attributes in his or her life. If one lives in this world, keeping in view this sacred assignment, it will make man reach the glorious heights of divine perfection. Aqa Mahdi Puya says: The theory that every believer is a vicegerent of Allah cannot be used to assume that men have the right to select or elect anyone from among themselves to exercise authority on their behalf. The verse clearly says that Allah has raised some of His deputies over others in ranks, on account of their wisdom, piety and total dedication to the cause of Allah (jihad); therefore they should be allowed to exercise the divinely delegated authority, followed and obeyed. So, if I were to conclude what it means after reading it, I would say that "It is GOD, who has made successors, leaders, viceroys, etc" Now, let us take a look at appointing of Abu-Bakr as Caliph: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Bakr Wikipedia says: Not only that, it also lists the names of those who did not give allegiance to Abu Bakr: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sahabah_That_Did_Not_Give_Bay%27ah_to_Abu_Bakr Let us forget for a moment what Shias think, or what Sunnis think. I want to know, so explain in a decent manner. I only know what I know. My knowledge is incomplete. So, explain to me, who gave the right to people to choose their successor here. Surely they knew of this Verse of God. *Bear in mind that I have listed a verse of God in my post.
  6. Salaam, This post is an advice to my Shia Friends. I was reading a post today on ShiaChat regarding Imamate in Quran. Many knowledgeable people clearly gave very amazing answers to prove the authenticity of Imams. But those who deny Imamate, still denied it. I even noticed that the person who posted those amazing facts, was clearly ignored. His post wasn't even taken into consideration. The other shias on that discussion were continously arguing and some even became angry over the arguments of those whose ignorance has blinded them. Thus, I as your friend, would advice you to not get into arguments that you know will yield no result. Always remember your teachings: "The moment you start arguing with an ignorant fool, you have already lost." "Increase your silence and your thoughts will flourish." Never lose your paitence in these matters. Remember the sacrifice of Imam Hussain(a.s.) and his patience. He faced an army of ignorants, whose desires blinded them. Did they not know that he was the Prophet's descendant? Indeed they did, yet they showed no mercy. Above all, Allah the Mightiest the Most Forgiving, the One who sees everything has already told you in his book of wisdom: "It is no the eyes that are blind, but the hearts." Quran, 22;46 They never accepted, they never will. Surely the truth will be revealed. *On a side note: We already have a brain. Those who seek guidance, should use it. If God had told us about everything, what is even the point of having an intellect or being logic? Wouldn't we be just like angels who already know good and evil and thus worship God with all their concentration? God has given us intellect as well as desires. It is upto us to choose. ;) Salaam! *I wrote this on mobile, forgive my mistakes.
