  1. Salaam. You can have a look at this site: http://www.duas.org/matri2.htm
  2. Wa alaykum Salaam. This information is nothing but a lie and it was aimed to cause confusion. It is important to note that the Islamic Republic of Iran does not operate in such a way. And above all, the grave of Imam Zain al-Abideen (AS) is not in Iran but in Baqi' cementary, Saudi Arabia! Let be cautious on how we spread an unverified information because we shall be questioned by Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى. Thanks
  3. My sincere prayer for you is that, "with the status of Ahlul-Bayt (AS) before Allah, I beseech Allah to bestow and bless you with healthy and faithful children sooner". Really it is painful! May Allah turn your pains to joy and happiness. My advice for you is that after taking the necessary medical treatment, it is not wrong to consult an Islamic expert on the issue, as there are so many cases in which the orthodox medicine fails to answer but with divine interventions, it gives a positive response.
  4. Salaam. There is a mistake in the design of the verse below, which is available on google. However, the designer had been contacted and he honorably accepted the mistake. But he claimed of not knowing how it can be removed on the Google. Thus, if there is anyone with an idea on how the design could be removed, kindly assist in this regards? Thanks
  5. Salaam. Anyone with links of a complete Tafsir of the Holy Qur'an by the Shia 'Ulama in English. Thanks
  6. Wa alaykum Salaam. If the narration is confirmed as an authentic one, then one needs to find out the circumstances surrounding the saying of the Imam (AS). This is because, the Ma'soomeen (AS) did not say things out of caprices. With that one will be able to understand better the message.
  7. Wa alaykum Salaam. It is recommended to beseech Allah for everything we need whether small or big. That is in fact a sign of belief and an absolute trust in Allah. More importantly that there is nothing we can do without His permission and wishes. Meanwhile, it is necessary that while we are supplicating to Allah, we should be certain that He is going to answer positively to our supplications and that our wishes will be granted. However, we should not be so much desperate in our request from Him to such an extent that if our supplications are not granted as we desire, we concluded that our supplications are not answered. He always answers the supplication of a supplicant any time He is called. But He out of His mercy and kindness, He gives us what is good for us at its appropriate and best time, because, at times, we may like a thing but which is bad for us and likewise, we may dislike a thing but which is good for us. Allah knows Best.
  8. Nice one. That is one of the good heritages from the Imams of Ahlul-Bayt (AS).
  9. Neither. Both are birds of a feather. Personally, I don't expect any positive disposition from them for Islam and the Muslims, May Allah save Islam and the entire Muslims from their evil plans.
  10. The tradition of two precious things (i.e. Hadith at-Thaqalayn) is one of the popular and widely accepted traditions among the Muslims-Sunni and Shia alike. The only point of disparity among them has to do with the primary content of the said tradition. The Sunni majority are of the opinion that the two precious things according to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a) are Qur’an and Sunnah while their Shia counterparts are of the view that the two precious things are Qur’an and the Ahlul-Bayt (i.e. The Prophet’s Household). Without any doubt, this difference has indeed brought about so many disparities in the understanding and comprehension of Islam and in the interpretations of most of its laws among the adherents of the two major schools of thought. Thus, in an attempt to resolve this lingering difference and conflict of opinion, the following analyses were carried out on the tradition: 1. The traditions referring to Qur’an and Ahlul-Bayt as the two precious things are unanimously agreed upon by all traditionists and historians of both sects as an authentic and reliable (Sahih) tradition. Besides, these traditions (with variations in expression) are found in many reliable Shia and Sunni books of Hadith (such as Sahih Muslim, Sahih Tirmidhi, Masnad Ahmad, Mustadrak Sahihayn, Kanz al Ummah etc.) with different chains of narration. Whereas, the tradition referring to Qur’an and Sunnah as the two precious things is a single narration (i.e Awhad) and it is not originally found in any of the Sunni six authentic books of Hadith (i.e. Sihahu Sitta). 2. The Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a) at his death-bed was prevented from writing his last wills to the Muslims by Caliph Umar while saying: “The book of Allah (i.e. Qur’an) is enough for us” (Ref.: https://www.al-islam.org/shiite-...; Hadith of the pen and paper - Wikipedia). Thus, if the Prophetic saying or practice (i.e. Sunnah) could have been considered by the Sunni as one of the two precious things (Thaqalayn), why would Umar prevented him while claiming to be satisfied with the Qur’an alone? 3. During the Caliphates of Abubakar and Umar, recording and even the narration of the Prophetic traditions was prohibited on the basis that the Book of Allah was enough. The violators against this rule were seriously punished. In addition, after the demise of the Prophet (s.a.w.a), it was on recorded that Abubakar collected several traditions of the Prophet (s.a.w.a) and set them on fire. (Ref.: https://www.al-islam.org/prohibi...). And upon this background, there was never a book of Hadith (among the Sunni Muslims) until about one hundred years after Hijrah during the Caliphate of Umar Ibn AbdulAzeez. Therefore, if Sunnah was considered one of the two precious things as claimed by the Sunni, why was the recording or narration of the Prophetic Hadith prohibited by the Caliphs then? Likewise, which Sunnah were those Muslims during the periods followed if there were no record of it? 4. Qur’an is an everlasting and eternal miracle of the Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a). It is protected by Allah from any form of alteration, but the Prophetic traditions, particularly during the Umayyad dynasty were seriously altered and tampered with, thereby making some traditions to be considered weak (i.e Daif) or fabricated. Thus, Hadith or Sunnah becomes a major area of conflicts among the Muslims now and in the past. Then, how could an object of conflict becomes the remedy against the disparity? Undoubtedly, there is need for selected individuals who are infallible and well-versed in the Qur’an and the Prophetic traditions in order to present the correct interpretations of the Qur’an as well as the Prophetic Sunnah. Those individuals are none saves the Prophet’s Household (i.e. Ahlul-Bayt).Thus, in light of the aforementioned points, one will come to the conclusion that the two precious things (i.e. Thaqalayn) prescribed by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a) are Qur’an and Ahlul-Bayt (AS) and not Qur’an and Sunnah. For further reading, this site might be of help: Hadith of the two weighty things - Wikipedia Allah knows BEST.
  11. It is very difficult to get a Hadith book that is unanimously agreed upon by both Shia and Sunni Muslims. This might be as a result of the differences in the methods adopted by each of the schools of thought in the acceptance and the authentication of Hadith.
  12. Although the atrocities committed against the grandson of the Prophet, Hazrat Hussain Ibn Ali (AS) and the 72 members of his family and devoted companions in Karbala on the 10th of muharram, 61 AH was a very great tragedy in the history of man on earth. However, this event did not go without leaving behind lessons for all humanity and for the muslims in particular. Among such lessons, include: 1. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF ENJOINING GOOD: Imam Hussain (AS) declared in one of his speeches on the way to Karbala that his only objective of his uprising against the tyrant ruler was ‘Amr bil Marouf and Nahy ‘anil Munkar’, that is, Enjoining good and forbidding evil. Imam Hussain (AS) could sacrificed his dear life and the lives of his children, relatives and devoted companions simply because of the significance of the noble acts of enjoining goodness and forbidding evils. 2. AVOID HUMILIATION: In one of the speeches of Imam Hussain (AS), he (AS) categorically stated that he preferred a death with honour to a life with humiliation. Really, if a noble personality such as Imam Hussain (AS) could certified the leadership of a tyrant and irreligious leader such as Yazid Ibn Mu’awiyyah, then the essence of Islam has been destroyed. A believer is always honorable and respected in the sight of Allah. Thus, at to no point should he submits to humiliation, particularly in relation to his religion. 3. UNDERSTANDING OF DEATH: Death is never the termination of life; rather it is transformation from a material to the world of eternity. The practical demonstrations of Imam Hussain (AS), relatives and his devoted companions on the day of Ashurah, 61 AH proved to us that they had a wider and better understanding of death. They selected and preferred martyrdom above all other forms of death. Because, their missions were achieved and continues even after their deaths. Thus, martyrdom is a great honour that should be longed for by a believer. 4. PREPARATION FOR DEATH: Death is an inevitable ending of every soul and it is a reunion of a servant with his Creator. Ashurah was the last preparatory point for the reunion of Imam Hussain (AS) and 72 members of his family and companions with their Lord. Imam Hussain (AS) categorically requested from the enemies a respite of a night to prepare for the reunion with their Creator. The Imam (AS), his family and devoted companions prepared for martyrdom with prayers, supplications and glorification of Allah. Thus, a believer should always be in a preparatory state for the reunion with his Creator. More importantly, the fact that the exact day of our reunion is unknown to us, thus, it is more necessary that we are always in a state of meeting Him. 5. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SALAT: Karbala was a display of Imam Hussain’s love for the daily obligatory prayer. Despite the unconducive atmosphere in Karbala, Imam Hussain (AS) together with his associates did not spare any time to abandon the Salat even at the point of death. Imam Hussain (AS) during the course of fighting with the Yazid Army on Ashurah day requested a respite for the observation of the noon prayers. Thus, no matter the condition a believer finds himself, he must never abandon the daily obligatory prayers. 6. TOTAL SUBMISSION TO THE WILL OF Allah: Ashurah was a demonstration of an unconditional obedience of a servant to His Creator. Imam Hussain (AS) accepted the decree of Allah on himself whole-heartedly. The prophecy of his martyrdom has gotten to him from his grandfather but he never for once query the decree of Allah, rather he accepted it with a perfect faith. Thus, a believer must accept the wills or decrees of Allah on him without any query or displeasure. 7. ALWAYS SUPPORT THE TRUTH: The battle in Karbala was the battle of Islam and Kufr and battle of the truth against falsehood. Imam Hussain (AS), his family members and companions were the representatives of Islam and the truth while the Yazid and his allies represented the Kufr and falsehood. With the martyrdom of these great personalities on this day, the truth became victorious over the falsehood. Thus, in our day-to-day life, the truth will continue to fight falsehood but the truth will always remain victorious. Thus, let us try to identify the truth and uphold it and likewise identify the falsehood and abandon it. 8. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO REPENT: Allah is merciful, forgiving, and always ready to accept a sincere repentance of His servant. In Karbala, Hur Riahi was a commander in the camps of the murderers of Imam Hussain (AS). But as soon as he realized his mistakes and sins, he quickly rushed to Imam Hussain (AS) in a regretful way while his repentance was accepted by Allah. Fortunately, Hur was among the first martyrs in the camps of Imam Hussain (AS). Thus, it is not too late for you to repent of your sins and misdeed. He (SWT) is ever ready to forgive and forget. 9. UNEQUAL FIDELITY AND LOYALTY: On the day of Ashurah, every members in the Imam Hussain’s camp displayed high level of loyalty to imam Hussain (AS) and his noble course. Despite the fact that Imam (AS) gave them permission to leave him with his course he has chosen, the relatives and companions declared their unflinching supports to Imam Hussain (AS) and preferred to give the life repeated in order to save the life and the noble course of Imam Hussain (AS). As a believer, one must display high level of fidelity and loyalist to friends in time of ease and hardship. It is said that a true friend is known only in the time of hardship. 10. WOMEN’S ROLES: Islam does not underrate the roles of woman in the society. In Karbala, Hazrat Zainab (SA) displayed high level of faith and submissions to wills of Allah upon his brothers and other members of the family. When she was asked about the event, she said: “I did not see anything save beauty”. Besides, Hazrat Zainab (SA) was the single women spread the messages of Ashurah to every nook and cranny of the Muslim worlds. Indeed, her unequal roles in spreading the messages of Ashurah and coordination of the members of the Prophet Household (AS) cannot be underrated. Thus, Muslim women should not underestimate themselves. They should contribute positively to the social, cultural, economic and political developments of their society.
  13. The following are recommended deeds on the day of Ashurah: 1) Stay away from food and water until late afternoon. (This is not a fast and thus should NOT be kept with the intention of fasting) 2) Focus on the great tragedy that took place on this day and avoid attending to your business/employment matters, laughing and unnecessary discussions 3) Recite Salawát as many times possible. 4) When meeting fellow brothers, condole them in the following words: أَعْظَمَ الله اُجُورَنا بِمُصابِنا بِالحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ وَجَعَلَنا وَإِيَّاكُمْ مِنْ الطَّالِبِينَ بِثارِهِ مَعَ وَلِيِّهِ الإمام المَهْدِيّ مِنْ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ May Alláh make our reward and your reward great, for our grief for Husayn, peace be on him." & Say "May He place us and you from those who help his cause with His representative, the guided Imám from the family of Muhammad, peace be on them." 5) Recite Sura al-Ikhlás (Sura # 112) 1000 times, or as many times as possible. 6) Say:- اللّهُمَّ العَنْ قَتَلَةَ الحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ ALLAAHUMAL-A’N QATALATAL H’USAYN WA AWLAADIHEE WA AS’HAABIHEE O Allah condemn and lay a curse upon the killers of Husayn (as), his family and friends 7) Recite as many times as possible: فَيالَيْتَنِي كُنْتُ مَعَكُمْ فَأَفُوزَ مَعَكُمْ فَوْزاً عَظِيما Yaa Laytanee Kuntu Maakum Fa afoozo maakum Fawzan Azeema "Would that we were with you So that we could also share the great accomplishment with you" Recite the following Salaats, dua’as and Ziyaarat, after Fajr Salaat but before Zuhr Salaat. 8) Recite Salaat of Four rakaats, divided into two prayers, in the following manner: a) First prayer: In the first rakaa, after Súra al- Hamd, recite Súra al-Káfirún (Súra # 109). In the second rakaa, after Súra al-Hamd, recite Súra al-Ikhlás (Súra # 112). b) Second prayer: In the first rakaa, after Súra al- Hamd, recite Súra al-Ahzáb (Súra # 33). In the second rakaa, after Súra al-Hamd, recite Súra al-Munáfiqún (Súra # 63). 9) Say 1000 times:- اللّهُمَّ العَنْ قَتَلَةَ الحُسَيْنِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ ALLAAHUMAL-A’N QATALATAL H’USAYN WA AWLAADIHEE WA AS’HAABIHEE O Allah condemn and lay a curse upon the killers of Husayn (as), his family and friends 10) In remembrance of the time, Imam (as) had the bloodied body of his 6 month old Infant son Ali Asgar in his arms & hesitated while walking towards the Tents to hand the body over to the mother a)Take a few steps Forward and then Retrace your steps to where you began. Say the following while you are moving forward and backward (7 times) إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَ إِنَّا إِلَيْهِ راجِعُونَ‏ رِضًا بِقَضَاءِ وَ تَسْلِيماً لِأَمْرِهِ INNAA LILLAAHI WA INNAA ILAYHI RAAJI-O ‘ONA RIZ”AN BI-QAZ”AAA-IHEEWA TASLEEMAN LI-AMRIHEE Verily we are Allah’s and verily unto Him we return. We are happy with His will and carry out His command 11) Then go back to your place where you are standing and recite: اَللّٰهُمَّ عَذِّبِ الْـفَجَرَةَ الَّذِيْنَ شَاقُّوْا رَسُوْلَـكَ وَ حَارَبُوْا اَوْلِيَآئَكَ وَ عَبَدُوْا غَيْرَكَ وَ اسْتَحَلُّوْا مَـحَارَمَكَ وَ الْعَنِ الْقَادَةَ وَ الْاَتْبَاعَ وَ مَنْ كَانَ مِنْهُمْ فَخَبَّ وَ اَوْضَعَ مَعَهُمْ اَوْرَضِىَ بِفِعْلِهِمْ لَعْنًا كَثِيْرًا اَللّٰهُمَّ وَ عَجِّلْ فَرَجَ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَاجْعَلْ صَلَوَاتِكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَاسْتَـنْقِذْهُمْ مِنْ اَيْدِى الْـمُنَافِقِيْنَ الْـمُضِلِّيْنَ وَ الْكَفَرَةِ الْـجَاحِدِيْنَ وَافْتَحْ لَـهُمْ فَتْحًا يَّسِيْرًا وَ اَتِحْ لَـهُمْ رَوْحًا وَ فَرَجًا قَرِيْبًا وَاجْعَلْ لَهُمْ مِنْ لَّدُنْكَ عَلٰى عَدُوِّكَ وَ عَدُوِّهِمْ سُلْطٰنًا نَّصِيْرًا ALLAAHUMMA A’D’D’IBIL FAJARATAL LAD’EENA SHAAQQOO RASOOLAKA WA H’AARABOO AWLIYAAA-IKA WA A’BADOO GHAYRAKA WAS-TAH’ALLOO MUH’AARAMAKA WAL-A’NIL QAADATA WAL ATBAA-A’ WA MAN KAANA MINHUM FA-KHABBAWA AWZ”A-A’MA-A’HUM AW RAZ”IYA BI-FIA’-LIHIM LAA’- NAN KATHEERAA ALLAAHUMMA WA A’JJIL FARAJA AALI MUH’AMMAD WAJ-A’L S’ALAWAATIKA A’LAYHI WA A’LAYHIM WAS-TANQID’HUM MIN AYDIL MUNAAFIQEENAL MUZ”ILLEENA WAL KAFARATIL JAAHI’IDEENA WAFTAH’ LAHUM FATH’AN YASEERAA WA ATIH’ LAHUM RAWH’AN WA FARAJAN QAREEBAA WAJ-A’L LAHUM MIN LADUNKA A’LAA A’DUWWIKA WA A’DUWWIHIM SUT’AANAN NAS’EERAA O Allah!

  15. Wa alaykum Salaam. The saying of 'Isti'adha' i.e. "Audhu billahi mina-s Shaytani-r rajeem" with every sense of concentration drives away the impacts of Shaytan and weakens its evil suggestions. Recitation and contemplation on the verses of the glorious Qur'an is also a good alternative. Likewise, recitation of selected supplications (such as Supplication No 17 of Sahifat Sajjadiyyah) prescribed by the pure Ahlul-Bayt (AS) is another way-out. The Dua is: http://www.duas.org/sajjadiya/s17.htm
  16. Really, those who abandoned the wills of the Prophet (s.a.w.a) in relation to his successor immediately after his demise were the ones having the lion share of the blame. They are indeed the architects of all the crimes, atrocities and heresies found in Islam. Although, this does not mean that those who follows them are not having their own shares of the punishment. May Allah safe us from being an architect of evil and misguided course.
  17. The word ISLAM is from a root word 'ASLAM' meaning a total submission. Thus, a Muslim is a person who totally submit to the wills and commandments of Allah. A Muslims consequently are peaceful and peace-loving individuals. The Salafis or Wahhabis are not Muslims and they are out of Islam. But they are only using Islam as a cover up just like their ancestors, Mu'awiyyah, Yazid etc. Meanwhile, the Muslims are not terrorists while terrorists are not Muslims. They are only using Islam as a cover up and nothing more. Thus, Islam remains a religion of peace and total submission to the wills of Allah.
  18. Nice one. I will give my submission after thorough reading and adequate analysis of the points. Thanks for your efforts.
  19. Can you benefit us with some of those hadiths from Ma'someen please. Thanks
  20. Wa alaykum salaam warahmatullah wabarakatuh. I really appreciate your great efforts in the paths of acquiring pure knowledge of Islam. Meanwhile, for you to become a Shia scholar, you need to be trained and certified by the orthodox Shia religious seminaries such as that in QUM. Otherwise, you can only be a Shia intellectual, if and if you are not get misled on the way. This is because without supervision at times might be misleading. Thus, you need teachers for you to become a scholar. That has been the common norms among the scholars. Wishing you best of luck.
  21. Wa alaykum Salaam The scholars and experts on the Quranic Sciences made mention of three primary criteria for the classifications of Surahs (i.e the chapters of the Qur'an) into Makki or Madani. These are: 1. Time: If a Surah was revealed before the migration of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a) from Makkah to Madina (precisely before getting to Madinah), it is considered a Makki (i.e. A Meccan Surah) but if it was revealed after the Hijrah ( be it in Medina or any other places), it is considered a Madani (i.e. A Medina Surah) 2. Place : Any Surah that was revealed in Makkah and its premises ( be it before or after the Hijrah), it is considered a Makki, but any Surah that was revealed in Madina and its premises, it is considered a Madani. 3. Audiences : Any Surah that addresses the unbelievers (i.e. polytheists and idol worshipers) is considered a Makki while the Surah that addresses the believers, the hypocrites or the people of the Book is considered a Madani. Meanwhile, the popular and widely accepted view for this classifications among the scholars is the time of the Prophetic Hijrah. It was based on this that out of 114 Surahs of the Qur'an, 86 are considered to be Makki while the remaining 28 are considered Madani. However, if place of revelation is used as the criterion for these classifications, there would remain some chapters which were neither revealed in Makkah nor Madina. And this brings about disputes as the case above. Likewise, if the audiences of the Qur'an is used as criterion, then the status of so many chapters will remained undecided, because, we have Surahs which addressed the unbelievers but it was revealed in Madina while we have Surahs that addressed the believers but it was revealed in Makkah. In view of this, in my candid opinion, the best criterion for the classifications of Surahs into Makki and Madani is the time of the Prophetic Hijrah. Thus, the Makki Surahs are 86 while Madani Surahs are 28. Allah knows BEST.
  22. Based on the prophecy of the noble Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a) in the Hadith of two weighty things "Thaqalayn", Qur'an without Ahlul-Bayt (AS) or Ahlul-Bayt (AS) without Qur'an could never guarantee guidance. Rather, Qur'an together with the Ahlul-Bayt (AS) must be held together to be guided. Meanwhile, no one doubted about the Qur'an being a Book of Guidance but what we are saying is that for us to be guided by the Qur'an, we need the interpretations and explanations of the Ahlul-Bayt (AS) as well. They (AS) are indeed the only shield against misguidance.
  23. Based on a popular view, the glorious Qur'an is made up 114 Surahs,in which 86 are Makki while 28 are Madani..
  24. Indeed we have a perfect example in the Infallible ones (a.s). Going through the history, we come to know that Imam Ali (a.s) was a brave and very powerful personality. However, he resorted to patience when he was oppressed and deprived of his rights immediately after the demise of the noble Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a). Without any doubt, Imam Ali (a.s) could adopt violence and other means to fight for his legitimate rights but for the sake of Islam and the peaceful coexistence of the Muslims, he remained silent and adopt a peaceful ways instead. In one of his sayings, he (a.s) was quoted to have said: I will continue to remain silent so far I am the only one that is being oppressed and the Ummah is at peace. Thus, let's reflect inwardly and apply this principle in our life. So many are times when we fight for our personal rights at the detriment of the masses.
