  1. Short answer is that it is a confirmation of these stories, and that they really happened. (This point is also clearly written in the Quran without any controversy) The books are a continuation of a timeline of real events, and our prophet is simply the seal of prophets, who repeated old and added to it new news. It's like an update of the same program, as all prophets from Adam, to Nuh, to Mohamed (pbut) are brothers in God, and are delivering in essence, the same exact message - warnings and glad tidings - with case studies from the past to teach us what will happen if we comply, or not comply with God and His messengers. It's all just to make us better persons.
  2. N3uthu bilLah minashaytan alrajeem Honestly didn't read beyond some of the comments about the supposed nature of jinn, and that they are an "invisible race" for us. That in my opinion is wrong, for many reasons. One is that in suret Jinn, the jinn refer to themselves as having men : وَأَنَّهُۥ كَانَ رِجَالٌۭ مِّنَ ٱلْإِنسِ يَعُوذُونَ بِرِجَالٍۢ مِّنَ ٱلْجِنِّ فَزَادُوهُمْ رَهَقًۭا ٦ The highlighted words mean "men from among the 'ins' ", and " with men of the 'jinn'" So we have men in both. The word human in English is derived from the Latin word humanus , which means "of man". At the same time when we look at the hadiths on the topic, we have all kinds of evidence from prophet Mohamed and his progeny ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) that clearly shows how jinn can be seen in the bodies of humans, with especially high concentration among certain groups like Gypsies, Kurds, etc, as well having a "jinn" in the shape of animals including dogs, cats, and quite exclusively reptiles such as snakes. Interestingly enough i read that even animals can be classified in 'ins' and 'jinn', while for instance one-colored dogs are jinn, while patched colored dogs are ins. Most importantly it is important to see that the family of Iblis and his followers are a very much physical army with lineages that are discussed by various authors through the times, including the famous "13 bloodlines of the Illuminati" book" (that includes descendents of prophet Mohamed too who carry special powers and knowledge for the hezb shaytan), that is an open source pdf file on the cia website. Just Google it. I think there's also another book that is published by them called "the council of 300". They are organized and have been very successful in the past few millennia. Now their time is over ( inshallah ), and they still have time to repent. No matter how much they kick and scream and try to deceive, bully, spread fear and lies, they can not cover the Light of Allah and the Victory of Allah and the Truth of Allah. At the same time those paranormal cases of spiritual and mental hypnosis and abuse happening, is consciously being controlled by the same people who today also eat food, relieve themselves in the toilet, having neck issues from too much phone use, etc. They are just human. Their leaders are but men, and the children of Iblis are simply a tribe of men called bani Iblis, who have of course intermarried with the children of Adam countless times. (An interesting book on the first occurrences of such is the Book of Enoch) I think this jinn and ins dichotomy is simply like two universal qualities that resonates with two of the elements called fire and earth. These elements are both very good if used in a good way, so one better not say like Iblis said "fire is better than earth", and do the same mistake by saying "I'm better than jinn, earth is better than fire". This topic is so important in the Quran, that also designed it to be the last words in the Quran, showing our unity, by saying "min Al jinnatu walnas", in the last verse of the last chapter of the Quran. (Just like shayateen min al ins wa jinn / satans from among the jinn and ins shows that any one of us can be a satan , God forbid) Also Allah says clearly that our nation is one nation, while He "did not create ins and jinn, except that they worship Me". For these reasons, as well as others that are based on history, archeology, anthropology, and countless religions, books and studies, that point towards the jinn royalty who often consider themselves descended from snakes/dragons, while they worship them as gods and deities, - have been pretty much in control from the time of the sumerians. Like Jesus (عليه السلام) referred to satan as the prince of darkness, who was already 2,000 years ago controlling most world affairs, including the holy temple and House of God in Jerusalem, for which he predicted its destruction shortly thereafter. And bottom line is for those who are genuine here about worship of a Merciful, Compassionate God of the Quran, bible, Torah, and all the 124,000 messengers of God who came, is to make the personal covenant with God, that we are willing to fight and put all our worldly belongings and our lives and everything to God in His service to fight and resist and clean out this world from these enemies of God, and enemies of our grandfather Adam (عليه السلام). (And then walk the talk) Fi amanilah
  3. This thoughts thread would be the one I'd choose, if I had to choose one thread on this website to survive. It's kind of a mix think tank limitless and everything allowed kind of place, because you can talk Islamic here, as well as any other topic, but in other threads you can't be free like that. The Quran really encourage thought / fikr, so congratulations for whoever made the thread and for those who are keeping it alive, mashaallah. Fi Amanilah
  4. And as this is the "Islamic" Republic of Iran we are talking about, supposedly implementing Islamic laws, it would not exactly be off-topic to bring Islam into this political discussion. The WF does not make that distinction, which in principle is good, but very easily abused among mankind. It is also one of those stories we hear of people walking around the House of God naked, or with one transparent cloth, while I read narrations of people actually doing so at the time of the prophets advent, as some couldn't afford more clothes. I don't remember hearing any resulting violence or arresting ( probably feels a bit like being kidnapped by strangers as a woman , I would imagine. For a woman being taken away like a true criminal by physical force is a big deal to me) In any case, we have so many narations pointing towards the Islamic way of arguing asking Muslims. ( for instance in the letter to Malik El Ashtar in Egypt ) When there is a disagreement, we should follow the two step path: - when debating, seek guidance from 1. God and 2. the prophet of God. A - seeking an answer to a debate from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is through the Quran , aka Furqan ( meaning differentiator ) B - seeking guidance from the prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is through the commonly known narrations we have about him. So here we are in an age where all the women can see what these narrations are online (scholars don't have the usual Monopoly on the books anymore, you don't need access to a physical library, and you can translate anything), and can find answers through search engines in seconds. This argument of forced innovative mandates is like the emperor who has no clothes. There is no support from the books the scholars claim to defend to support a general public law. So from today's Laywoman point of view it smells like typical women's oppression and hiding the truth. At the same time the majority of people who won't even bother to research the scholarly issue through the books, will simply blame Islam, blame Quran, blame the prophet. So in a way, the way I see it, is that they are blocking the way to Islam with these moves, and are creating a bad image. Islam isn't as hard as people think. Islam is cool, Islam is fun, Islam is open minded and tolerant, Islam does not force beliefs and definitely - if anything - the rules of today should be way easier than those of 1,400 years ago. And definitely not more strict. Those poor women who have less physical freedom now. And above all the scholars of today, who are ironically mostly men, will never mention that they are also to keep their eyes and minds in control. It is a two way thing, and includes men a well, who should try to dress nicely. "But righteousness is the best attire". The question is now, that if anybody here can't show a single Hadith from anywhere showing this political mandate to the entire Arab peninsula by prophet Mohamed ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), then I don't understand how anyone claiming to be holding on to the 'Thaqalayn' can keep defending a lost cause like that. Please everybody contact all scholars you know or can access, and ask them for proof of this public mandate system, including the system of punishment for this headscarf. Why don't people just say " oh it seems I was wrong in my opinion, and thanks for sharing this." Can't they give the reality that there is no proof for such a public historic mandate, some weight in their opinion, and moving on to higher levels of faith? I don't know how some people think, but hope that God guides us all.
  5. And as this is the "Islamic" Republic of Iran we are talking about, supposedly implementing Islamic laws, it would not exactly be off topic to bring Islam into this political discussion.

So here we are in an age where all the women can see what these narrations are online, and can find answers in search engines in seconds. This argument is like the emperor who has no clothes. There is no support from the books the scholars claim to defend to support a general public law, passed by the prophet, which states all women must cover their heads. So from a Laywoman point of view it smells like typical women's oppression and hiding the truth. At the same time the majority of people who won't even bother to research the scholarly issue through the books, will simply blame Islam, blame Quran, blame the prophet. So in a way, the way I see it, is that they are blocking the way to talk Islam with these moves. How can there scholars make it harder for the women than the women had it in the time of the prophet. The question is now, that if anybody here can't show a single Hadith from anywhere showing this political mandate to the entire Arab peninsula by prophet Mohamed ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), then I don't understand how anyone claiming to be holding on to the 'Thaqalayn' can keep defending a lost cause like that.

  6. Why not answer with one historic proof that the entire Ummah under the political control of prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) had such a mandate for the public, and show us a single proof of an implementation, including physically arresting and scolding women by government representatives for not wearing it. If you can't show me one such proof, then you lost the case brother.
  7. What concerns the word Khimar, without being an official scholar, let me say that this word does not occur that much in the Quran, and only used once in context to dress. Then it is used today for 'Kheyma' for instance, which is 'tent', and also for khmr, which is consciousness altering drugs and stuff. So the meaning isn't clear, and actually that is the beauty of it. Because the meaning of khmr can be unanimously said to mean cover. Cover what? Does it say "head" or "hair" in the Quran? No. So it is definitely not a very strong argument for me that the 'cover' - or cloud - is in reference to the head. Also the tafseer of the words in the Quran are ideally linked to narrations concerning those verses. Do we have a single narration interpreting the verses and words ( Khimar) this way? If you do, please let me know. Thanks
  8. Thanks. Well that is the first I see in terms of a Hadith. It's just that if it truly was a public mandate, then certain questions arise: 1. Wouldn't there be a single narration depicting the public proclamation of those limits from a minbar for instance. There would have been a narration from several witness from the public and friends and family. 2. Also, wouldn't there be a single narrated incident of ladies being punished or told off for not wearing headscarf? Thirdly: isn't it unanimously agreed upon that slaves during and after the time of the prophet would not be even allowed sometimes to wear a veil, as it was a status symbol? ( I read that they ripped the veils off the remaining female ahl bait in Karbala, as they were treated as the worst of slaves, and by the pseudoislamic army of yazid ) For these reasons, and others as well, I personally stand with the first protests by the great Iranian women, at the very beginning of the revolution, who were negatively surprised by this mandate. Many pro revolutionary people lost faith in the government from then, even though they were for it to that point. I guess they saw it as not part of the bargain and vision the people had at that time. But I'm open to discuss this head cover mandate issue till somebody can prove to me that it was truly publicly, politically mandated the way it is in Iran today. Let us pray for the Iranians and all the people
  9. The Iranian people are the ones who backed and as a majority decided to support the Islamic revolution. At the same time the armies that fought Saddam were Iranians, and the clerics are Iranian. It's an internal thing with general ambitions of representing "Islam". The Iranians took it upon themselves, and officially represent the limits and laws implemented by Allah and the prophet, while being more lenient in this day and age is a must in most things. Thankfully people aren't getting their hands cut off, for instance. But seeing more strict rules than that of the prophet or Ali pbut is painful and can't be the right way in my books. So what I hope that the Iranians don't make hasty , drastic moves against their own government, but at the same time the government should not be afraid to bend to things that they have no true "Islamic" backing, such as the head scarf mandate. That mandate won't fly, as it is against the way of the prophet. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but is there a single proof that the prophet mandated this, and even killed people to defend such a mandate? Or prosecute anybody for not wearing a head veil?
  10. The way I would like to imagine a 'way out' for the current Iranian government from this, is to survive the storm. This storm can only be survived with the parable of a bamboo or palm tree. It bends, it's flexible, strong, etc. My point is that the bamboo has to bend and respect the wind, while being free to change direction a bit here and there. As someone expecting to be questioned by God, who told us to follow the Way of the prophet and the ahl bait, my choices are limited in this issue, to point out that after years of research I have yet to find a single Hadith saying that these rules were ordered by these holy personages to the general public, as is the case in Iran since the revolution. Not only that, but please correct me if I'm wrong, but there seems to have never been a single punishment for this lack of garment. So to me personally, I must stand with these women who are fighting for the rights that existed under those times. Yet my prayers and hope are that both the great Iranian people, including their government - have a smooth transition, in what seems to be a new age dawning. WAllah Aalam
  11. Great question. Controlling thought can be achieved internally or externally. Externally meaning only glancing naturally at things that one might desire and doesn't 'own'. It means being in clean good places It means being surrounded by the right people. It means creating the conditions for clean thoughts, which means keeping a clean environment and temporary body. We work on the mental by studying and inspirational sayings Then we work on the spiritual especially through ruku3 and sujud, as well as Quran and the greater is zikr / remembrance of God. Then we decorate our pre thought environment through good deeds to others. ***** Then the next step that I mainly learned from eastern philosophies, to differentiate the Wise mind in the brain area with the emotional animalistic fiery mind that feels things like desire and stuff. So the emotional mind is located in the chest, in the area of the solar plexus, lungs and heart area. So it is important to make these two 'minds' coexist, and that we embrace and use both minds together, with the wisdom mind ideally leading the other mind willingly and lovingly. In Qigong there is a technique of 'stopping thought' that uses the metaphor of a monkey being tamed in order to be free out of the cage, by convincing the monkey that it's for his best interest to work together as one team. And count the benefits of actually reaching what the person desires while acting under the guidance of our wisdom mind. However "stopping thought", in my opinion isn't possible. It is rather somehow controlling the radio station in our head, to be in control of what frequency and station we want to listen to. And to hear these thoughts that are energy following through us, one hears then loudest when in total conscious and wake silence - aka meditation. In those moments we really hear those thoughts, and it is important to face them , and not go on tictoc for at least a minute at least. That is the purpose of anybody who meditates, including all the prophets. To self reflect, and listen to ourselves and inner universe, which is also a realm, among the realms of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). however let me conclude that the thought guidance comes from Allah Al Hady - Alone. So ask Allah for it before even asking us. Hope you did that, and if you didn't - do it now Habibi
  12. A thought: The people who are cursed by God, are cursed anyway, so we don't really need to curse most anybody. I think that's supported by the main vibe of the holy books and prophets. Let's make this world a world free of grudges. Peace Love and harmony everyone .. and forgiveness and overlooking inshallah
  13. Make sure that when you start feeling any kind of anxiety or negative self Consciousness/, which in turn end up as self projection - is to focus the mind on God, while multi tasking mentally with a focus on heart beats, breath, and thing of names of God that we might need at that moment. Or stimulus talk to God while deep breath. Problem is that we enter fight or flight mode once the adrenaline kicks in, and if you look at any blushing or shy person, you will find a bit of an irregular and obstructed breathing, with very powerful excitement. At the same time being shy can be very good, so embrace this natural way of self preservation, while finding a balance between shyness and the opposite. Good luck!
  14. Brother just pray that you and I recognize the current, or upcoming, Imam. Your books or our books or their books alone won't help us. Only the true vision and being chosen to be in tune with the truth, when there is no visible Imam. I believe that is being 'good' people (as my mother told me) is what it's all about. In context to your close ones among your family and neighbors and friends. So let us not get heated and make people feel like we are on a crusade or mission, which I am guilty of the most in this website. Just used to take myself so damn seriously ..
  15. If I may: The only 'sect' that makes it to paradise safely inshallah, are the ones who don't split themselves into groups , and they believe that the Ummah is one Ummah, and we are all brothers and sisters in God, as long as we live by and witness through actions and tongue that there is no god except One God, and that His messenger is Mohamed. Now the rest is all interpretation, and we have no right to make our own clubs or groups, where we claim to be the guided sect/group of those who call themselves Muslims. Thanks Wasalaam
