  1. UPDATE: There is said to be a summarised version within another book called Ithna ʻAsharíyya, or, The Twelve Shiʻah Imams. There seems to be no online copies available, only books. Copies can be borrowed from USA, UK, Egypt and Australia according to: http://www.worldcat.org/title/ithna-ashariyya-or-the-twelve-shiah-imams/oclc/31472441?referer=di&ht=edition#borrow https://books.google.com.au/books/about/Ithna_ʻAsharíyya_Or_The_Twelve_Shiʻah.html?id=pUEUHQAACAAJ&redir_esc=y Bear in mind that the author is an Anglican Priest called Edward Sell. Personally, I would like believe the book is objective, but we should know - after all - that this is a collection of Hadiths here.
  2. So after a bit of Googling and digging for myself, I found this on Wikipedia (so bear in mind that they may not be as good a source): - Ma'athiru'l-Baqir This is exactly the kind of book I was looking for. According to Wikipedia, this book is said to show the imam discussing a number of topics, from the nature of the soul and the qualities of the Ulama to the attributes of God and the divine nature (explaining that it was impossible for humans to understand it). HOWEVER, when I tried looking for an actual copy, I couldn't find anything.
  3. Waalaikum assalaam I was reading the chapter of the 5th Imam, Imam Muhammad Ibn 'Al-Bakir (as), in a book called: Story of the Holy Ka'aba and its people. And I read this passage: "The Imam discoursed fully on many topics such as the nature of the soul and Nafs, the nature and attriibutes of God, the qualities of the Ulemas." You can find the chapter here: https://www.al-islam.org/story-of-the-holy-kaaba-and-its-people-shabbar/fifth-imam-muhammad-ibn-ali-al-baqir I was wondering if there are any sources that are written by the Holy Imam himself. Wassalam
  4. As-Salaam-u-Alaykum In the spirit of the late Imam, I was wondering if there are any authentic sources from the time of his teachings? Many include the Spirituality and the Deen, but I was wondering if there are any concerning the Nafs and the rooh. Jazak-Allah
  5. http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01123/ Question: Alcohol is used in the production of many drugs and medications: Is it permissible to take them? Are they considered pure (tãhir)? Answer: They are pure; and since the alcohol used in them is so minute that it dissolves in them, it is therefore permissible to take them also. So if we were to look at it in this context, the ethyl alcohol is also minute in the foods that we get from supermarkets. They literally make up a maximum of 2% of the whole product that you get. No matter how many times you eat it, it would not be intoxicating.
  6. Started a topic that no one, unfortunately, really cares about LOL

      Alhamdulillah, it was a great and necessary topic to start;

      Thanks for doing so!
      Rest assured, there are a good number of Shia, who I know personally, and I'm sure plenty more Muslims in general - who have been, and enjoy thinking deeply on issues of Bioethics, and developments in society, technology and ethics, with relation to Islam.

      One is in fact trying to get some scholars and practitioners together, to start a journal of some kind on Islamic Bioethics! Neat huh?

      I'm still thinking on an appropriate answer for your post - hence the silence. Apologies!

      In the meantime, here are some topics I've witnessed, which you might find interesting! Salaam & Enjoy.

      Also - as an example of a specific topic, where a strong Bioethical theme of discussion has sprung up around it: this is prevalent in many topics on here - with regards to everything from Mental Health to Halal Zabihah. Stick around :)

      oops - that last topic was meant to be this:


  7. Allah saved him "I heard the azan in a Turkish accent, that's when I realised I was in Turkey"..."I was happy".
  8. Asalam-o-Alaykum brothers and sisters. This has to be the least talked about topic throughout the whole Muslim community, including the Sunni and other sects. We can simply look up matters and rulings for Abortion, Euthanasia, IVF, etc. That's all well and good, a well-known Mujtahid can easily provide answers for these matters. However, there are still some things that need addressing, as they will become common in the future. Matters not addressed or they are addressed briefly: - Cloning: I understand that Ayatollah Sistani provided an answer to cloning animals (which is permissible), but what of Humans? Am I allowed to have a double? And if I do, then was it Allah's will that another me was created or a creation of my own? - Genetic Modification --> An answer was provided by Ayatollah Sistani that, as long as it is beneficial, it is permissible as long as there are no side effects. If anyone is able to (I've tried) then could you help me go into more depth with this? - Designer Children Now this is what the main controversial topic of the future will be. Children born under IVF that enables their parents to choose his/her eye colour, skin colour, hair colour. Parents can also decide how tall and what body type they will be, and even decide what their facial feature will look like. Parents may even decide how smart, and how athletic their child will become. Already there are big countries like Australia that have banned having children like that because they believe such children will be at such a significant advantage over the other normal children. Other religious traditions have already made rulings on these matters. The Catholic Church prohibit it, as God is the one and only creator. Therefore, by deciding essentially all the child's features, the parents are then acting "in the place of God". If we are to successfully transition into the future, then we must seriously be thinking of the matters above. Not only will this help our future generations, but it will also help non-Muslims to have a clear understanding of what our deen says about this, rather they have some fuzzy idea that they might share with other like-minded people who look into these matters.
  9. My friend says it does because there is no rule addressing this matter. I argue that they are both different, much in the same manner as when you intentionally break a fast during Ramadan, you make amends by fasting for 2 consecutive months. He then said that you can include Ramadan as one of the 2 months. I said that Eid-al-Fitr would get in between, and as it is a sin to fast during Eid, you would not have completed 2 consecutive months of fasting. But what do you think?
  10. Salam. My friend and I are debating whether Kaffarah fasting counts in Ramadan. Basically, if a person breaks an oath, and is not able to: free a slave / feed sixty poor / etc. just as Ramadan is arriving, then do his 3 consecutive fasts count? Regardless of Ramadan fasts being wajib/compulsory?
