    Mir Ali reacted to Al Mosawy in Dealing With Hard to Believe Prophetic Stories   
    You cannot be going around telling that adam was an ape when you clearly have not read al quran al karim. Where have you read that Adam was an ape...... Allah said he created him from soil. Where has Allah said that he was an ape. That is just you being rude to on eof the holy prophets. 
    32.7. (Allah is He) who has made everything He created better, and He began the creation of the human (being) out of clay.

    does it say he began the creation of ape out of clay.
    animal out of water . Of them (is a category which) walks upon its belly,  (another which) walks upon two legs, and ( a third which) walks upon four . Allah creates what He wills. Allah is Able to do everything (he wants) .
    Does it say anywhere Adam was made from water to be an ape no.

    Firstly, bro, nobody is talking about relations between Muslims and Jews. Who said anything about that?
     
    Is this about "refusing to compete with a Jew?"
     
    No.
     
    Don't make the discussion about something it's not.
     
    This is about competing against someone wearing a certain flag and representing a certain so-called nation. The Olympics are a type of soft diplomacy. By competing with another nation you are acknowledging that nation's existence. This is simple logic. This is why it is unacceptable to compete with Israel. It is a usurped nation built on the backs of an imprisoned people. This is current, not past. This isn't all in the past. This is what is going on now.
     
    Secondly, I understand you're repping Dixie and all that. To be honest it annoys the heck out of me, but I'm not going to pry into other people's upbringings. However, I implore you to look past the prism through which you currently think.
     
    The idea that Israel took on all the Arabs and won every time... This is a popular idea, but how correct is it? Let's assess!
     
    Firstly, regarding 1948. The Nakba and all that. I don't think stabbing pregnant women in the gut really takes all that much military prowess or strategic genius; it just takes brutality. And regarding the 1973 war, Egypt betrayed Syria, and although Syria was making some good advances, Israel - like a rabid dog - threatened to use nuclear weapons. This was a cause for alarm for the USSR which was the primary source of arms for Syria, and basically this situation forced an end to the conflict.
     
    And of course we all darn well know what happened in 2000 and 2006. We know it very well. Complete and utter defeat.
     
    So the image of Israel as a nation of superhumans who defy numbers and odds to overcome their bestial Arab enemy... is an image mostly based on what? Based on the 1967 war.
     
    By the way, before we go any further:
     
    It was not, nor has it ever been, Israel vs. all the Arabs. Today, Syria more or less stands along amongst the Arab nations against Israel. Back then, it was Syria and Egypt. The rest of them sat back and got their fill of shawarma and hookah smoke. Saddam (la) launched a few scuds for show. But Syria and Egypt were doing the fighting. And although they are much larger countries than "Israel," the populace was not nearly as militarized. In other words, in terms of manpower, there was no significant advantage of the Arabs over the Israelis.
     
    And yes, part of this is due to the incompetence of Arab leaders. But since when did their incompetence justify a criminal lunatic nation and its criminal lunatic machinations?
     
    Back to the 1967 war. The reason why it was a sweeping success for Israel, was because they destroyed all of Egypt's air force while their planes were grounded. If you want stories of great pilots in action during fierce dogfights, go read up on Shahid Abbas Doran. Go read up on how he was up against 9 MiGs, shot one down and out-manuevered the rest until they had to go back home for fuel. All the Israelis did was catch the Egyptians by surprise. And yes, part of this was due to the Egyptians' incompetence. Nobody has ever denied this. Nasser made some very costly strategic mistakes. Egypt had a very good opportunity to deal with this problem and failed to do so. Nobody will deny that.
     
    Now, what about today. Firstly, Israel is scared out of their wits at the prospect of another war in Lebanon. Even though they are junkies and are absolutely dependant on their next "fix" of war, they really really don't want to be humiliated again as they were ten years ago.
     
    So Gaza is their war zone of choice. Gaza, a place which is cut off from the world. A place in which all the tunnels which were bringing in artillery rockets (not to mention medicine and such) have been effectively closed off. And yet, they enter Gaza without even stating a military objective!!! Any military man will tell you, when an army starts an operation, it has to have a clear objective. But because the IDF has failed so many times at meeting its objectives ("destroy Hamas," "destroy this," "destroy that"), they don't even do that anymore. They just go in, cause as much destruction as possible, and pull out. Like a bunch of dirty cowards.
     
    So, to summarize, you are right that there is a reason behind Israel's "success" and the relative failure of Arabs. The reasons are threefold:
     
    1) Absolute disregard for human life, human ethics, or even animal ethics for that matter
    2) Unflinching, unwavering, unconditional support from the world's most powerful governments, on a massive material and spiritual scale
    3) Incompetence of Arab leaders
     
    None of these reasons justify anything they do. This is something people of reason understand. Are you going to join the ranks of the people of reason or do you prefer to repeat a baseless slogan they repeat like a mantra?
     
     
    Olympics is all peace and love, yeah right. It is soft diplomacy. And diplomacy is soft war. Which means the olympics is soft war. There is a reason why when you turn on NBC, when they show the medal rankings, they will show in order of golds OR in total medals, depending on which one USA is #1 in. (At the moment it doesn't make a difference because they are leading in both, but trust me I have seen NBC do this)
     
    Think back to the 98 world cup. Which you don't remember because this is something only we know. When the Iranian team was set to play the USA, French national TV aired the idiotic movie "Not without my Daughter." Then Iran went and knocked the socks off of the US national team. That was the only game Iran ever won in a World Cup finals, and thank God for that. It was an absolute necessity. Precisely because: international sporting competitions are where countries seek to advance their wider goals.
     
    Moreover, there is no sense in boycotting the whole event just because one crappy little country wants to participate in them. They're the disease, not us. Boycotting the whole event is saying: they deserve to be there, I do not. Boycotting THEM is saying: I deserve to be here, they do not.
     
    And you make a good point, about peaceful competition between nations. You have to be a "nation" to engage in such competition. No? We're not talking about a nation here.

    He should not have competed with the Israeli at all. He should have forfeited the match. By losing and not shaking hands, it looks like he's petty. And if he had won and not shaken hands, he would have been a bad sportsman. 
     
    The "Israeli" running after him to shake his hand reflects too well on that disease of a "country," and we all know how much they seek positive press in this day and age when almost everyone knows the truth about them.
     
    This is why any sensible Muslim would simply: forfeit the match. It is the only option that preserves ones personal honor while also preventing them from making it into positive PR.

    Salam,
    The situation is getting tensed day by day. NATO countries are undermining the power of Russia. This is exactly what Hitler and Napoleon did. 
    Both Hitler and Napoleon invaded Russia unaware of the Russian winter, both went with huge forces and returned with very little.
    I recently read an article by an US official and according to him Russia could defeat NATO in less than 3 days.

    But the way things are going I think a war in the near future is inevitable.

    Mir Ali reacted to amirhosein_88 in The name of Imam Ali علیه السلام in Quran   
    Salamun alaykum.
    what follows may answer the question to some extent:
    Why aren’t the Imams’ names clearly mentioned in the Quran? Concise answer We must pay attention that even though the Imams’ names are not mentioned in the Quran, but they have been clearly mentioned in the words of the Prophet, especially Imam Ali. The most prominent example of this would be the hadith of Ghadir that is deemed as the official appointment of Imam Ali as the prophet’s successor. This hadith is Mutawatir in terms of its narrators and clearly indicates the Imamate of Imam Ali.
    Furthermore, there are verses in the Quran that were revealed in regard to Imam Ali, most notably verse 55 of Surah Ma’idah which says: “Only God, His Messenger, and the true believers who are steadfast in prayer and pay alms, while they kneel during prayer, are your guardians.” It is mentioned in Sunni and Shi’a tafsirs (Quranic commentaries), history and hadith books that this verse was revealed after Imam Ali gave his ring in prayer as charity while doing Ruku’ (bowing down) in prayer, meaning that the only example of the term mentioned in the verse is Imam Ali. Therefore, even though Imam Ali’s name is not mentioned in the Quran, but the verses clearly point out his Imamate.
    As far as why his name is not mentioned in the Quran, one can mention two answers. First: The Quran tends to mention different issues using general terms and explain them in general rules and principles, not to explain every little issue and detail. This method is employed in many verses of the Quran. It is on this basis that when Imam Sadiq is asked: “How come the Imams’ names are not mentioned in the Quran?” he responds: “The same way the Quran has explained prayer, Zakaat and Hajj in the form of general rulings and has not mentioned the details to them and the prophet himself would explain the detailed rulings, the prophet himself has clearly mentioned that Imam Ali and his children are his successors without the need of the Quran mentioning the name of each one of them.”
    Second: In regard to issues like this which can cause much dispute and contention, it is better that the Quran mentions them in an equivocal way, because there is a great possibility that the disagreement about Imamate will lead to a dispute regarding the Quran and the whole religion of Islam which is definitely not in the best interest of the Muslims, meaning that presumably the adversaries of Imam Ali would alter, change and replace the verse that consisted of his name (if it was mentioned in the Quran). In such a situation, the significance of Islam, as the last religion, and the Quran, as the last holy book, would no longer stand in place. Furthermore, we must keep in mind that if the Almighty says in the Quran: “We Ourselves have revealed the Quran and We are its Protectors”, one of the ways to protect the Quran is to naturally avoid anything that may lead to its alteration. It is on this basis that first: his name is not clearly mentioned in the Quran and second: the verses that are related to the Imamate of Imam Ali including the verse of Tabliq, which revolves around the formal appointing of Imam Ali as Imam and the verse of Tat’hir, which is about the household of the prophet, are situated in between other verses that seemingly have nothing to do with them. This was done so that the motives and causes for replacing or altering the Quran were resolved as much as possible and the Quran would be protected and immune from all alterations throughout history.
    Detailed Answer We must know that first: the names of the Imams’ have been mentioned in the words of the prophet of Islam (pbuh), especially Imam Ali’s name that was mentioned by the prophet as his successor many times. One of these occasions was at the beginning of his prophetic mission, when he conveyed his message to his tribe and relatives, where he said: “The first person that believes in me will be my Wasiyy (vicegerent), minister and successor.” And no one but Imam Ali responded in the affirmative. Finally the prophet said to him: “After me, you will be my wasiyy (vicegerent), wazir (minister) and my khalifah (successor).”[1]
    Another example is the hadith of Ghadir in which the prophet clearly states: “من کنت مولاه فعلى مولاه”[2] which means: “Whoever that I am his master, Ali is his master.” There is also the hadith of “Manzilah” (position/station) in which the prophet said to Imam Ali: “انت منى بمنزلة هارون من موسى ،الاّ انه لانبى بعدى”[3] Most of the prophet’s ahadith in regard to Imam Ali’s Imamate and Caliphate are Mutawatir (recurring so much from different narrators that one becomes totally sure that the hadith can't be made up) and most Sunni and Shi’a books have mentioned this fact.[4] In another hadith, when speaking to Jaber Ibn Abdullah Ansari, the prophet names the Imams from Imam Ali to Imam Mahdi.[5]
    Therefore, we must keep in mind that even though the Imams are not named in the Quran, but the prophet, whose words and sayings are all true and revealed to him[6], has mentioned their names and emphasized on their Imamate and Caliphate.
    Second: Despite the fact that the Quran does not mention the name of Imam Ali, but his Imamate has been pointed out in Quranic verses. The majority of Quranic commentators from among Sunnis and Shi’as admit that verse 55 of Surah Ma’idah was revealed in regard to Imam Ali and that this verse is solely speaking of him.[7] The verse is as follows: “انما ولیکم الله و رسوله و الذین آمنوا یقیمون الصلاة و یؤتون الزکاة و هم راکعون” which means: “Only God, His Messenger, and the true believers who are steadfast in prayer and pay alms, while they kneel during prayer, are your guardians.”
    Knowing that in Islam there is no specific guideline about paying Zakaat during Ruku’, it is obvious that this verse is pointing out an incident that only took place once. This incident transpired when Imam Ali was performing Ruku’ and a needy person came to his presence and asked for help.  The Imam pointed to his finger and the poor man came and took his ring and left.[8] This is why the verse says: “Only[9] God, His Messenger, and the true believers, are your guardian” and no one else has authority over you.”
    Up to this point we explained that the names of the Imams have been mentioned in the words of the prophet and the Quran has equivocally mentioned the Imamate of them in such a way that if a fair researcher is seeking the truth, he will understand, through the least research and inquiry, that the prophet’s opinion in regard to caliphate and imamate after him, was for Imam Ali and his children to be his successors.
    As far as why the Imams have not been named in the Quran, there can be two reasons:
    1- The Quran tends to mention different issues using general terms and explain them in general rules and principles, not to explain every little issue and detail as this method has been employed by the Quran when explaining many Usul (pillars of religion) and Furu’ (branches of religion).
    This answer is expressed in a hadith from Imam Sadiq,[10] and to back his explanation, the Imam gives three examples. The first example is Salat (prayer). The Quran has mentioned the concept of prayer in a general manner and has not expounded how each prayer is performed. However, the prophet explained for the Muslims how prayers should be performed and how many Rak’ats each of them consists of. The second example is Zakaat which the Quran only mentions as a general principle in Islam. Once again it was the prophet that explained what things Zakaat applies to and what the Nesab (taxable limit) of each is. The third example was Hajj which has solely been considered wajib in the Quran, and it was the prophet that explained exactly how to perform it.[11]
    Therefore, to expect the Quran to mention the details to every issue, no matter how important, is not reasonable, and when observing the issue of Wilayah and Imamate, if the names of each of the Imams are not mentioned in the Quran, this cannot constitute a reasoning to reject the school of thought of the Ahlul-Bayt, the same way one cannot perform Dhuhr prayer with two Rak’ats just because of the excuse that the Quran does not mention that it is comprised of four, or to not perform Tawaf (circumbulation) because the Quran does not say it should be done seven times in Hajj.
    2- In regard to controversial issues like this (Imamate) to which there is a great possibility of objection and opposition, it is better for the Quran to explain the issue equivocally, because there is great chance that the dispute in regard to the Imamate of Imam Ali would lead to a dispute about the Quran, and this is definitely not in the best interest of the Muslims. Of course, we must remember that when Allah says in the Quran: “انا نحن نزلنا الذکر و انا له لحافظون” (We Ourselves have revealed the Quran and We are its Protectors)[12] that one of the ways of protecting the Quran from alteration is to choose its words in a way that hypocrites among the Muslim community would lose their motives to alter the Quran, so that if a group or individual has a great motive to oppose Islam due to his desires, he would not change the Quran to what he desires.  This way the value and sanctity of the Quran would remain preserved.[13]
    The following are Shahid Mutahhari’s words when explaining the abovementioned answer: “The question about why the Quran has not mentioned Imam Ali’s name in regard to his Imamate and authority, can be answered in the following ways; first: The Quran tends to mention different issues using general principles second: Allah and his prophet did not want this issue, which carnal desires play a role in the outcome of, to be mentioned in this form; for they (the hypocrites) even tried to change and explain away what the prophet had said and claimed that he meant something else, meaning that even if there was a verse that would unequivocally state such a thing (mention Imam Ali’s name), they would still explain and interpret it in a different way. The prophet stated clearly that: هذا على مولاه How clearer and more unequivocal can the prophet say it?! However, there is a great difference between neglecting the clear statement of the prophet and neglecting a clear and straightforward verse of the Quran a day after the prophet’s demise. This is why I have mentioned this story in the introduction of my book “Caliphate and Wilayah” that during the time of Imam Ali, a Jew wanted to scold the Muslim community for the incidents that took place at the beginning of Islam’s inception (and it was truly a great means of scold and scorn); he said to the Imam: “ما دفنتم نبیکم حتى اختلفتم فیه” (You hadn’t even buried your prophet that there was a dispute about him among you). Imam Ali responded: “انا اختلفنا عنه لا فیه و لکنکم ماجفت ارجلکم من البحر حتى قلتم لنبیکم: اجعل لنا الها کما لهم آلهة. فقال: انکم قوم تجهلون” (We did not have a dispute about him, but rather about his command, however, your feet had not become dry from passing the sea before you asked your prophet to compromise your most fundamental belief of Tawhid and build you idols like the ones the inhabitants of the desert had.) Therefore, there is a great difference between what took place for us and what happened for you. We did not have a dispute in regard to the prophet himself, but rather our dispute was about his command and order. These two are very different in the eyes of those looking at Islam from an outer perspective; to say that after the prophet, they (those who denied Imam Ali's (as) successorship) did so because of a misinterpretation (although this misinterpretation was deliberate) of the prophet’s words rather than saying they did so out of neglecting and disobeying something that the Quran had directly and explicitly ordained.[14]
     
    In light of what was said, one can say that the main reason why the Imams’ names or at least Imam Ali’s name was not mentioned in the Quran was to protect the Quran from alteration, as the verses of Tat’hir[15], Tabliq[16] and Wilayah[17] are situated among verses related to the prophet’s wives and other rulings or commands of not befriending the People of the Book, verses which seemingly have nothing to do with the successorship of the Ahlul-Bayt and Imam Ali. However, a fair researcher with the least scrutiny can understand that these parts of the verses are separate from the rest of the verse and they have been placed in their respective locations for a specific reason.[18]

    1. How many non-Muslims shias attract should be of no concern to you. Moreover, we are busy working on 1.5bn Muslims first. Can you discuss them later - of course. However if you are going to base becoming a shia based on those questions, you are better off where you are since it is clear you can't distinguish between core beliefs and extended practices.
    2. Talk about being obtuse brother. You read 'somewhere' whereas I provided proof from Sahih-e-Sitta (arguably the 6 righteous books after the Quran) that the Prophet wore black. So I will be obtuse too and say you are correlating the Prophet wearing black + cover of Kaaba being black with hell-dwellers - that is simple logic.
    3. OK, so let's discuss why ADL is a core belief for the Shia even though He has 98 names as well. Okay to proceed?
    As for the differences after the Prophet, keep in mind the Shia fiqh was established before Sunni fiqh so I agree the differences should be avoided. Have you read anywhere how the 4 sunni schools came about? Isn't that bidah since it definitely didn't come from the Prophet.

    @wmehar2   and @reasoner
    Shias want nothing more than peacefully coexist in the world with everyone.
    We don't go around questioning why people give precedence to sahaba over Ahlulbayt, or wash their feet instead of wiping, etc.
    We are very content amongst ourselves so much so that we don't even do dawah. 
    On the other hand, we get asked the same line of questions (mutah, matam, crying) time and again. Then we get bombed, shot, killed, murdered over it when to be honest it is no one's business what we do and why we do it.
    The Ummah is at its weakest because Muslims in general are too worried about others rather than fixing themselves, that goes double for the Sunnis that want to 'save' the shias from themselves.

    Salam Alaikum.
    We also believe that Islam does not need sects. Rasulullah PBHU himself specified everything. He wanted Muslims to follow Quran and true leaders from Ahlul Bait. Muslims had no right to choose their leaders and imams and fiqh on their own. Again I repeat that Umar and his friends did not let Rasulullah to testate what Rasulullah himself said that he would write down so that Muslims never get astray. Go read the story in the Sunni books like Bukhary and think about it. Now we are facing this mess. We are not able to omit different schools of thoughts. We can just remain united on the benefits of Ummah tolerantly till Mahdi returns.
    It is amazing some of those who wash their feet instead of wiping in wudhu contrary to Quran they accuse Shias to kufr, shirk and deviation from Quran and Sunnah !

    It's funny
    First they said Iran attacked Twin Towers in September 11 and now Iran and Taliban has common interests, and Iran made Isis to attack it later too funny.
    You read these all you never asked yourself that the Washington claims to have the sim card number which means they have the slightest information about  Taliban, so with all the information why they don't destroy Taliban, they have everything they need but still Taliban is alive. And these are beside the information that leaked showing Osama bin Laden's true name was Tim Osman a CIA agent, who was given the task to form Taliban, and it is quite acceptable since US claim they killed him but never they showed his corpse which means he has retired and shaved and living with his family in a cozy place somewhere on the earth.

    Yes, also Putin has told the NATO to be peaceful and not to repeat the same as what happened in world war 2, but they dont seem to listen since america is leading them, and america will not lose anything if the war starts, NATO will start buying weapons from america and it is also far from europe, so no danger at all

    Mir Ali got a reaction from Ali_ in Nato And Russia: A Third World War?   
    Salam,
    The situation is getting tensed day by day. NATO countries are undermining the power of Russia. This is exactly what Hitler and Napoleon did. 
    Both Hitler and Napoleon invaded Russia unaware of the Russian winter, both went with huge forces and returned with very little.
    I recently read an article by an US official and according to him Russia could defeat NATO in less than 3 days.

    And with regard to your question regarding NATO deployment, I think these are just war games and it'll be countered by something similar. 
    But the way things are going I think a war in the near future is inevitable.

    The shia faith is more complete than the Sunni faith.
    We have usul-e-deen which are the core beliefs:
    Taqleed, Adl of Allah, Prophethood, Imamat, Qayamat
    Them we have furuh-e-deen:
    salat, fasting, hajj, khums, zakat, jihad, encourage the good, forbid the evil, Tamalpais (nearness to Prophet and AhlulBayt), tabarra (distance from enemies of Ahlulbayt).
     
    That is what brother @skamran110 and I are saying - without understanding the shia faith or gathering knowledge, you ask some mundane questions.

    The minor issues are  not part of belief in the way sunni presents. All we believe in
    Tawheed,  Adal, Nabuwah, imamamh, qayamah 
    These are pillars of Shia belief.
    Do you know about  these before going to the minor issues?
    You seem to be ignorant of basic beliefs  of Shia and then you try to claim without knowing them. they are not right?
    This is what is called ridiculous thinking. I do not find you a seeker of the truth with open mind and clear heart except whirling in the pool of your own intentions.

    Well said brother, even I suspect that this guy is here to create controversy and not learn about our faith.
    The way he is talking, i don't think he has read the proofs provided by other brothers in this thread. 
    If he would have read it, he wouldn't have asked the same questions again.
