  1. As salaamu `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatahu I just wanted to say something to the Muslim brothers and sisters who are not at the level of "scholars" or "`ulemaa'". When on your journey to gain Islamic knowledge, I highly recommend going at your own pace and not reading complicated ahadith which may be difficult for you and cause you to doubt. It is really foolish to, for example, open up a book like Bihar Al Anwar, or Kitab Al Ghayba, and read it with the intention of wanting to learn about the ghayba of our Imam (aj), as these books are present for the scholars to classify the reliable narrations from the weak ones, and then write shorter books to explain to and teach the layman, (the Muslim who isn't a religious scholar or expert) and not for the layman to open it and believe everything in it as true. There are authentic traditions from our Imams which tell us that their Hadith will be difficult for us to handle, and that only the believer will have the endurance/capacity to take it in, and so why I think it's important for learners to go slow with these things and first read books by modern scholars to learn the fundamentals of topics like Tafseer, Akhlaq, Seerah, Usul, Aqeedah, etc., rather than to jump in to the hadith books and come out doubting your faith over some disturbing hadith you may have came over. As an example, if you want to learn about Imam Al Mahdi (ajtfs), don't open up the big book of Kitab Al Ghayba by al Tusi, as this book is filled with hadiths which you will never understand unless you are well versed in hadith sciences and shi`i hadith history, and because of your lack of understanding, you will fall into doubt.. It is better to read the books like "The Awaited Saviour" by Shaheed Sadr (ra) & Shaheed Mutahhari (ra) ( https://www.al-islam.org/the-awaited-saviour-muhammad-baqir-sadr-murtadha-mutahhari ), which are books where the respected authors (may Allah bless their souls) explain the occultation of our blessed Imam (ajtfs) through authentic narrations which they derived from the above mentioned bigger works, and Quran verses. These are the types of books one should read when he wants to learn about his Imam. Another example, is that it would be utterly stupid to simply open up one of the four main shi`a works and read it for the sake of "knowing the hadiths of the imams". These books are for the scholars to extrapolate information from for their paraphrased works, and not for us less learned, laymen people to use as a direct resource for gaining Islamic knowledge. It's like, as a wise person once said, a newly high school student reading an advanced book on how to build a space ship while he himself hasn't even finished high school! This is why, brothers and sisters, scholars exist! They take these large works and help us know what to take and what not to take. We should not go ahead of our scholars, as they spend their whole lives doing what I have just mentioned for our convenience. It would be very naive of us to ignore their works and dive into the hadith books with no knowledge really. In the end, it is always best to follow what your marja` says in fiqhi (jurisprudence matters) issues, though Note that all I am saying here applies to me first and foremost, and I write it because unfortunately I have seen what happens when laymen go into things too fast.. May Allah increase us all in knowledge and keep us steadfast on the path of truth!
  2. @Lebanese36 Wa `alaykum al salaam sister, it is my pleasure to help you. I have recently read a very short book which is by Shaheed (Martyr) Sayyid Mohammad Baqir Al Sadr (ra), the famous Iraqi martyr and scholar, named "Ghadir" which explains why the shi'a believe in succession to Muhammad. I very highly recommend you read it, it's truly a wonderful and easy to understand book. it is available in English online Here is the link to it. https://www.al-islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/30065 You are welcome to ask any questions here sister, we will answer to the best of our abilities insha'Allah. Please remember me in your prayers!

    Best Dua - Somebody ever gave you

    Wa `alaykum as-salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatahu 1. I remember a person I met online, we got to know each other more, he is gone now (don't know where he is) and I haven't seen him in over 5 months, may Allah be with him and protect him; we constantly advised each other on religious matters and he made a du'aa for us once that we meet by the Imam (ajtfs), by the side of the ka'aba, when he announces his advent. It was very touching and stayed with me until this day. Is a good motivation 2.erm don't remember. I always be kind to them and obey them (it is wajib) 3.Allah, my Lord. Blessed be He! I speak to Him when I am afflicted, lonely, sad, happy, or in need of help. You won't get a better friend than Him

      What did u post that got deleted loooool

  6. Yep, it's definitely real. I've known her for about six months now on Discord, which @Mansur Bakhtiari mentioned, and she became shia and accepted the wilayah of Ahlulbayt (as) a few months ago. Since then, her parents and even closest "friends" treated her like garbage and really hurt her. She has strong faith in Allah though alhamdulillah, and hasn't given up yet. May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى ease her life insha'Allah.

    Bad work on the translators' part. It actually says, "My Imams and masters (saadeti) are twelve"

    Nassab

    There's a marja' in Canada, named Sayyid Reza Hoseini Nassab. He has helpful books on his site too, refer to it for all the information. http://hoseini.org/index.htm I've read some of his books, he's really good. May Allah lengthen his life insha'Allah One specific book from him all should read, is "The Shia Responds", where he lists common questions people use against the shi'ah, and he answers them beautifully using proof from Qur'an, Sunna (traditions from RasulAllah saww), and 'aql (rationale) Here is the link to the downloadable PDF http://hoseini.org/The Shia Responds.pdf

    Wa 'alaykum al salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakattahu Good thread, but I'm going to have to say, respectfully of course, that this saying which I have quoted from your topic, is incorrect. We believe the Infallibles are different personalities, and not one person in essence. Sure, they are all noor (light) created from Allah, but it is not correct to say they are all the same but sent in different times and places. This would be like reincarnation, which is far from the Muslim belief of death and resurrection (we don't believe in reincarnation). They were each different people, and although all infallible, and all WOULD act the same, for example switch al-Hasan (as) & al-Husayn (as) , they would both do the same stuff of course, but they are NOT the same people.

    Eid-e Zahra(as)

    Nothing wrong with it. We as Muslims have a duty to enjoin the good and forbid the evil. This includes exposing the lies/fabrications that have crept into Shī'sm. We need to act on intellect, and not on emotion when it comes to these matters. The school of Ahlulbayt (`a) is the school of truth and nothing else. May Allah bless you for writing it, good read; and may He reward you @Ibn al-Hussain and thanks for sharing akhi @Waseem162

    What’s a friend?
  14. I thank and glorify Allāh first and foremost that He finds me worthy of testing me, and chant “Ya hayyu ya qayyum birahmataka astaghith” (Oh ever living, Oh all sustaining, by your mercy I cry for help) Then I turn to his loved ones as a waseelah - Ya rasul Allāh, ya habeeb Allāh, ya rahmat al 3alameen, atawajahu ilayk bi maqamaka al mahmuda an...

  15. Salaamu ‘aleykum. Do you have proof or evidence for this, akhi? This is a very interesting subject and I’ve never heard this view on the matter. Thanks.
