  1. For a start, I think (Sayyid Khamene'i: (doesn't allow small amount)) is right when he says that if it is najasah, the quantity does not matter. We are wrong to discuss khamar in the light of its intoxicating abilities. But I have heard that khamar when cooked to 1/4 of its original size, it is permissable and in this context, no longer regarded as najasah. As for naturally content of alcohol is not wrong to consume, as in vinegar. But what actually is the question, najasah or intoxicating characteristic that is issue in Fiqh?
  2. I agree that not to do gheebat is the best practice. But think of it in the promotion of Islam and Shia. I find that non-Muslims are fond of using their logic and their intelligence when disscussing issues. So I condemn their lame use of the logical faculties and their inherited and accumulated intelligence. We Muslims do not resort to our brains on issues that are already addressed in the Quran and Hadees. Now is that gheebat or a simple critique of their culture and not a direct attack on their personal attributes?
  3. From my understanding, someone quoted that gheebat of another creation is tantamount to denying Allah swt's Creation, like talking bad about food. If we take this, then it is a wrong towards Allah swt. But in another part of the disscussion, gheebat towards non-Muslims or even non-Shia is not considered a sin. I take the middle road, that gheebat in denying Allah swt's creation (in Niyat) is wrong but if gheebat of non-Muslims for the good of the religion, it is therefore permisable as stated in the hadees of the great Imams.
  4. shah1, 3:195 contained, `who fought and were slain,'. this would suggest that it is only applicable to those who died before the Prophet (pbuh) . and/or before this verse was revealed like Saidina Hamza (ra) .
  5. belief is the Right of Allah (swt). and 10:99-100 says this Right without doubt. those who demand that they be given a second or third chance are actually the ones who disbelieved. the chance that they wanted was already given by Allah swt in His own special way for everybody. being born in a Shia family is one of the ways a person is given that chance. I was not born into a Shia family but was approached by a friend and others my have that chance. if I rejected that chance, I will be doomed. similarly Abi Talib was given that chance and it is the right of Allah (swt) what circumstance He makes for that `chance'. to some it looks like Fate but it is actually Fate. I think Allah (swt) gives this chance even to remote Eskimos in North Pole.
  6. IbnSohan thank you. alHamdulillah, your reasoning and study is excellent to my mind. I remember somewhere in this chat that some hadith of the sahabis have been edited 100000 times before it reached us.
  7. In the Nahjul Balagha there is a sermon by Imam Ali about back-biting or Gheebat. Isn't a curse the same. My teacher told me that Gheebat applies only to Shias and not when talking about others. Now is Aisyah a Shia or the hukm on Gheebat similarly applies to her?
  8. I am of the opinion that a curse is the Right of Allah swt. We the ummah of Prophet Muhammad saw should show a good example to others by not cursing anyone. A bukhary or Muslim hadees quoted that Abu Bakar was being bad-mouthed by someone and he kept quiet. After some more bad words from this man, Abu Bakar replied and `defended' himself. To this the Prophet (pbuh) said that when Abu Bakar kept quiet, an angel was defending Abu Bakar. But when Abu Bakar defended himself, the Prophet (pbuh) saw a satan was beside Abu Bakar. Silence is golden. A curse demeans a person and his religion.
  9. I'd say that the event of Fai and denying Fadak showed Abu Bakar's real self. The event of his appointment as Caliph showed that he preferred his Quraeish decent over the prospect of an Ansars' take-over. And in Heracluis event, we see that Heracluis do not prefer someone who is out to champion his ethnic group (Quraeish) saying that it shows that such a person is not sincere in the fight for the religion, but in a struggle for his creed. Struggling for creed as can be seen in Uthmaniah Dynasty, is typically Muawiyah mentality. And what's wrong with Muawiyah's mentality is in his embrace of the Roman religion.
  10. I am not aware of the Mutaah in detail. I particularly want to know are there any Iddah after the period of Mutaah has ended as agreed.
  11. he gave a threat to Ahl al-Madeenah. What is Ahl al-Madeenah? sorry I am new to this word. Are they the inhabitants of Madenah or a group of learned people living there?
  12. I remember this hadis as a Blanket event. Are there any Sunni sourced hadith? I am living in a Sunni majority community
