  1. Asalaam Alaikum- Question~

    A Sister friend of mine had this sent to her from another sister, I told her I am not sure of its validity but it is deemed false in a couple of Sunni Fatwa sites. Can anyone think of a source or is this just bogus?

    e THE IMPORTANCE OF PRAYER...

    Read it and tell me if you think the punishment part is right, we all know that not offering our prayers (salat) is HARAM!

    But little do we know the punishments that we will face...

    The Prophet peace be upon him narrated.
    "Convey from me, even if its one verse (Ayah)"
    Maybe forwarding this message to others can be beneficial for your Intercession on the Day of Judgement.

    The punishments of the one who doesn't pray.

    The Prophet peace be upon him narrated: "Whoever shows heedlessness (negligence) in praying salat, Allah punishes them with fifteen kinds of punishments"

    Six punishments in this lifetime.
    Three punishments while dying.
    Three punishments in the grave.
    Three punishments on the day of Judgment.

    Six punishments in this lifetime:
    1 - Allah takes away blessings from his age,(makes his life misfortunate)
    2 - Allah wipes out the virtues of righteous people from his face.
    3 - Allah does not accept his Dua's.
    4- He will be detested by all creatures on Earth.
    5 - Allah does not award him for his good deeds.
    6 - He will not be included in the prayer & Dua's of the righteous.
    (good people)

    Three punishments while dying.
    1- He dies humiliated.
    2-He dies hungry.
    3- He dies thirsty.
    Even if he drinks the water of all the seas, he will still be thirsty.

    Three punishments in the grave.
    1- Allah tightens his grave until his chest, ribs come over each other.
    2- Allah pours on him fire with embers (red colour, hot coal made of immensely heated firewood).
    3- Allah sets on him a snake called "The Brave" "The Bold" which rolls all around his body & crushes him.

    Three punishments on the day of Judgment.
    1- He will be dragged face down over hot burning coal to the hellfire.
    2- Allah gives him an angry look that makes the flesh of his face fall down
    3- Allah judges him strictly and orders him to be thrown in hell.

    Those who do not offer their prayers of:

    FAJR:
    The glow of their face is taken away.

    DHUHR:
    The blessing of their income is taken away (even if he has millions, he will be poor).

    ASR:
    There is no strength in their body.

    MAGHRIB:
    They are not benefitted by their children.

    ISHA:
    The peace of their sleep is taken away.

    a beautiful duaa for thanking Allah for every moment

    @molaayi_from_lahore

    To answer one of your questions here, most women (sister @starlight is an exception, you won't find many wise women like her among Shia unfortunately) are either DUMB or SELFISH when it comes to holding on to their husbands.

    Take a poll from all SC members, you won't be able to find one married woman who offered her husband to marry her unmarried cousin / friend / bff / relative for the sake of her well-being, or for the sake of her Imam or her Creator Allah swt. Shia married women instead would see their loved ones among women slip into destitute, psychological issues, health issues, abuse, orphans going rouge, homes destroyed, she being the victim of bad people, but would not encourage their husbands to man up and take a second wife.

    This to tell you, there is a time and place to get advice from women, this is not the topic. Simply put, Shia women become the mothers and daughters of Yazeed when it comes to helping other Shia women. 

    I really do not think this is a very kind statement. I lived in a dual partnership with the first wife for years with my current husband. She left us to pursue her conversion to Christianity. Many of the women who have posted in this subject have lived in a western society and are not familiar with the more than one wife practice. Many men in a western society cannot afford to support a second or third wife. Evidently you missed that detail. On your behalf, I would change the words dumb or selfish to ignorant. No wise women amongst the shia? I know of many but because of the separation of the genders you as a man shouldn't know of any. And I am grateful for the kind wife that welcomed me an my five orphan children children when my first husband was murdered. As they stated when I was a sunni, Allah knows best.

    Narrated Abu Huraira: Once Allah's Apostle; offered the morning prayer and then faced the people and said, "While a man was driving a cow, he suddenly rode over it and beat it. The cow said, "We have not been created for this, but we have been created for sloughing." On that the people said astonishingly, "Glorified be Allah! A cow speaks!" The Prophet said, "I believe this, and Abu Bakr and 'Umar too, believe it, although neither of them was present there. While a person was amongst his sheep, a wolf attacked and took one of the sheep. The man chased the wolf till he saved it from the wolf, where upon the wolf said, 'You have saved it from me; but who will guard it on the day of the wild beasts when there will be no shepherd to guard them except me (because of riots and afflictions)? ' " The people said surprisingly, "Glorified be Allah! A wolf speaks!" The Prophet said, "But I believe this, and Abu Bakr and 'Umar too, believe this, although neither of them was present there."

    Interesting. As I said...I will stick to the teachings of the Imams

    Yes the White House is the swamp. The presidents morals can be ascertained by the company he keeps. Snakes and lizards come to mind...

    All the guy said is he wants to take a second wife because the first completely let herself go, and you've all lost your heads, frothing at the keyboard with countless posts trying to tear him to shreds. Is this how you all treat your problems in real life? My lord, have some composure. 

    I don't see the logic in people holding him responsible for his wife's mental health, she has her own agency and he's not God, it has no relevance to his option to marry other women.

    I dont see anyone being torn to shreds. I think separating these questions by gender would be a wise move if it can be done. The sisters see the world from a different point of view than a man would. The brother as I mentioned has his rights, and maybe this question is better asked somewhere in a male only forum. I wish him the best in his endeavors. The ladies have their rights too, might be a good time to close this thread and lower our gazes. And men are responsible for the maintenance and well being in general of their wives in Islam, its in the quran and to each his or her own. Not for us to question.

    He hasn't given you any reasons to question his religion so please refrain from such comments. Thank you.

    By that I was referring whether he is sunni or shia, beyond that not my call,  Many general Muslims from the world relate to Maliki, Shafii, Hanafi, Hanabali and JAFARI as madhabs not sects: to them the Ummah is one. Not questioning his religion in any context. Let me assure you since I have not been always Shia and some others think in different contexts. Allah alone may judge. Also his madhab would indicate if he is from Lahore whether or not he lived in the Pakistan or Indian Lahore. most hanifis moved north.

    Not interested in that.. But he scared me!! I am scared of getting married.. Are all men thinks the same way?? :(

    No not at all. I was Sunni, a widow with five young children and my shia husband married me without hesitation. He paid for my nursing education and my bachelors degree as my mahr. He raised and cared for my 5 eldest kids and insisted they be raised Sunni till they could make the decision. Never had a sunni man even inquire beyond knowing i had five fatherless children. My kids call him pops but know the legacy of their birth father. I finally became shia last year. Actions speak louder than words. If a man treats his mother with respect and treats you nicely then he is the man, whether rich or poor.

    I know what type of person OP is because my ex husband was from same city Lahore. If anyone asked him about me, I am sure he would describe me in exact same words. He wasn't so careful when he passed remarks at me in private. He didn't work because he belonged to a rich family. His only purpose in life was to work on his body and flirt with girls. I won't give any benefit of doubt to the OP. 

    I agree with you sister. I have many friends here in USA with husbands from the same city, and some of them are exes also. I warn American converts against some of these men. Sad affair. The poorer man is a wiser choice.

    Sister, I am sorry for your loss. If you can't eat anything, then have a smoothie. Don't let your blood sugar drop below normal. Please take care of yourself and know that she would not want you to harm yourself.

    I am so sorry for your loss :(  May Allah the Compassionate and Merciful, reduce your pain and calm your heart. From Allah is our origin and to Him our return,

    Sister Hameedeh is correct, and I would suggest extra prayer, your Creator is your greatest comforter. I have used many of the supplications at this link with great success http://www.duas.org/worries.htm

    Depending whether or not she is Muslim, you can start reading quaran on her behalf. Also duas.org have many duas for the marhumas. you may want to consider this if she was muslimah.

    Chocolate is a great stress reducer as well and stimulates release of pheromones in your body that reduces sadness. it also will keep your weight on insha Allah.Easy to eat and quick. great desert (or topping) for a smoothie.

    Why should I put myself in my wife's place. And why should I tell her? Women are emotionally pumped up in such situations and they won't easily allow their husbands to be shared with another woman. But men on the other hand are genetically programmed so that they are and can be at ease in romancing more than one woman. It is true and a fact. Allah the creator knows that.

    As a psychiatric nurse  for many years, I find your attitude leaning towards arrogant and narrow-minded. I was the second wife of my present husband. He was able to meet the needs of his two wives. i would NOT allow him to spend more time than allowable with me- I was the younger wife, He had to divorce my sister wife. the mother of his four daughters, when she converted to Christian Mormonism. I evidently landed a better quality man. I was a widow at 28 years of age with 5 small children to feed: and he was man enough to take us on. I have gained weight over the years due to the many children I bore, including the one son my husband has with me. it is a natural occurrence.I have always earned more money than he has.Many  Nurses in the US make more than many doctors do in Pakistan sadly, and we have a higher status here. Funny thing is he lives in My house, so where in hadith or quran does that put a mans status?

    Yes, Allah is All knowing, Creator of all things. He knows the nature of men such as yourself and knows sometimes they cannot be satisfied with the relationship with one woman.Al rasul Allah WAS was married to only one wife, Lady Khadija, until her death, and Commander of the Faithful IMAM Ali (RA)never married another wife Until after the death of Lady Fatima Zahra (AR) You can do as you wish, but if you are hurting your wife, the mother of your children in any manner; You know you cannot hide it from your Creator.  Prophet Muhammad WAS what quoted from many sources to state:"The best of you are those who are best to the women." (Sahih At-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and Al-Jami Al-Saker) Consider also the following:

    "O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr (dowry, bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honorably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good." (An-Nisa’ 4:19)

    Peace be to you brother, consult your marja about the rules of Muta'a marriage if your are shia, if your are Sunni as a born sunni turned shia I know its not permitted. please try to get more control over your nafs, and I believe there should be a mens only closed forum and a womens only closed forum to deal with these questions?

    You haven't actually addressed the issues I have previously underscored..! Repeating my argument back to me doesn't make the points you raise any more valid..

    Perhaps if he examines the reasons why she has psychological problems, such as, oh, I don't know, because she could be DEPRESSED, or deeply unhappy within her marriage, or some other reason that we don't know about. Frankly, as her husband it is his duty to enquire and assist her with these needs, instead of just looking at how he can cast cast her to one side without any, seemingly, consideration towards her.

    Further, I am abhorred at the level of mysogenistic comments arising from this post. 

    Islam doesn't need reviving, but many Muslims clearly need to get in touch with the 21st century!

    Please explain to me what is shirk to shia?

    Tafsir of Furat bin Ibrahim al-Kufi: The Understanding of Shirk
    This is one of the major Shia books of Tafsir (Iran, 2nd edition, 1416H), and there occurs therein (p. 370), "If you commit Shirk, you actions will be futile" Furat said: Ja'far bin Muhammad al-Fazaaree said, with an'ana (a type of narrating of reports which does not state direct hearing): From Abi Ja'far (alayhis salaam), regarding His, the Most High's saying, "If you commit Shirk, you actions will be futile" (39:65), he said: If you commit Shirk with the wilaayah (leadership) of Ali, your actions will be futile

    If you want I can provide more narrations like this filth!!

    Look at what the Shia Jafar Ibn Muhammad (RA) narrates. Like I said, similar to Christians Shias claim to follow someone that is innocent of their accusations. Wallah Ja'far (RA) never uttered this words of shirk.  

    Asalaan Alaikum: I need your sources to verify this. I also practice Duas that are free of certain utterances. I. You need to confirm  that your Sunni Ahadith sources has not been altered since the Al saud family has taken control of the helm of Alhul Sunnah. My grandparents  (I am 59 years old) were subjects of the Ottoman empire and My Dayi (mothers brother) who still resides in Anatolia possesses Ottoman of books of Ahadith=and what is printed now by modern sunnis is post Caliphate and age of the Wahabis reads differently than the original Ahadith of the ottoman empire. I also suggest you look up the story of the calligraphy plates in the former church converted to a Sunni masjid called the Hagia Sophia In Instanbul Turkey,  and tell me why the names of the Alhul bayt hang in the main prayer area in a pre-Saudi Masjid, a masjid of the last SUNNI CALIPHATE.  Heres the links: https://omaneric.wordpress.com/photo-gallery/sony-dsc-1248/    https://omaneric.wordpress.com/photo-gallery/sony-dsc-1244/    https://www.pinterest.com/pin/370772981798448905/

    https://photos5.com/photo/8754/Ottoman-Calligraphy-Plate-inside-Hagia-Sophia.html

    Please be aware that the KSA builds mosques and Islamic Centers worldwide and in return inculcates their doctrine into the populations that they build them for. That is how you have the rise of the taleban and modern intolerant cultures in many lands and the abuse of the rights of women and such. I live in the USA and even the sunni islamic center I used to attend was built with KSA funds for the students  that attended the university there. I later went to a masjid started by a imam from the abu hanifa mosque in Iraq. He fled here because the wahabies murdered his siblings and threatened his wife and chlldren. He stood with the Shias there in resisting the extremists. Please read the text on this page to know for a fact than many Sunnis before the common era believed that the succession should have gone to Ali and his progeny. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-meaning-of-the-large-circular-murals-with-Arabic-letters-hanging-inside-the-Hagia-Sophia-one-in-each-corner

    Your wahabi faction wiped out the monuments in the graveyards in Mekkah and Madina because they contained inscriptions that confirmed this fact. However they CANNOT touch my homeland, the location of the last Sunni Caliphate. I lived my first 14 years in my homeland and can attest to this. You need to visit the Ottoman Archives in Instanbul to confirm this.

    Salam,

    I will try and be quick. These are JUST three points that made me leave this religion and became a Muslim, trust me there are many. The only reason I even bother to write this is because I used to be one of you. Blindly following these mawlanas, but alhamdullialah Allah guided me and without a doubt there are many Shia out there that don’t know the truth about their religion. Inshallah Allah will guide them. BTW I can provide scans for all the below. 

    The Quran.

    Firstly, the Quran is the best guide for any Shia as it completely destroys every aspect of their aqeedah. Anyway, I was shocked by the Shia scholars and tahreef! What shocked me the most about this is the fact that these Shia scholars are not only still considered Muslims but are highly praised in the howzat. For example, Majlisi in his “Miratul uqul” (3/31) he said:

    و الأخبار من طريق الخاصة و العامة في النقص و التغيير متواترة، و العقل يحكم بأنه إذ كان القرآن متفرقا منتشرا عند الناس، و تصدي غير المعصوم لجمعه يمتنع عادة أن يكون جمعه كاملا موافقا للواقع، لكن لا ريب في أن الناس مكلفون بالعمل بما في المصاحف و تلاوته حتى يظهر القائم عليه السلام، و هذا معلوم متواتر من طريق أهل البيت عليهم السلام و أكثر أخبار هذا الباب مما يدل على النقص و التغيير و سيأتي كثير منها في الأبواب

     and traditions from the ways of the elite (i.e Shia) and the public (i.e Sunnah) regarding omission and change are mutawatir, and logic dectates that if the Quran was seperated and spread amongst people, then if a fallible has tried to collect it, then it is highly unlikely that its collection would be complete and in compliance with reality. However, there is no doubt that people are obliged to work with what is included in the Mushafs and to read it until Al-Qayem appears, and this is known through numersous traditions (mutawatir) from the way of Ahlul Bayt and most traditions relating to this topic point to omission and change, and many of it will be related in the chapters……….”

    Also, Al Kulayni! And Al Qummi! And Al Alayshi and the list goes on and on and on. Al Kulayni writer of Al-Kafi the number one Shia hadith book believes in tahreef… Al Qummi and Al Ayashi writers of the two oldest Shia tafseers believe in tahreef. And you want me to take hadiths from the likes of these people? And I don’t even want to talk about “Fasl Al-Khitab Fi Tahrif Kitab Rabb Al-Arbbab” by Noori. The only cult ever in any religion to write books attacking the authenticity of their holy book must be the Shia. Even modern-day Shia like Qazwini and Al-Fali and others believe in tahreef. Al-Ghizi even went and said that whoever doesn’t believe in tahreef is a kafir as he has gone against the muttawatir!

    What’s funny is that Shias claim that the Quran is the greater thiqah and the Ahlulbayt is the smaller thiqah yet those who attack the greater thiqah are praised and buried next to Imam Ali like Noori!!! But those who attack the Ahlulbayt are nawasib that more najis than dogs and pigs. And following the Shia narration its Halal to kill them and take their money to pay as Khums. Don’t get me wrong attacking/hating the Ahlulbayt (RA) is a sin but this hypocrisy.

    Anyway, even the Shias who argue against tahreef have no isnad (chain of narrators) to the Quran. Both sides of the coin are a joke. Especially with over 1200 hadiths on tahreef. As Kamal al Haydari said there are more hadiths on tahreef than Ghadir. Anyway, the Quran that is in our homes is narrated to use by the Sahabah (RA) and every argument a Shia makes using the Quran is always using mutashbihat and weak narrations from books all other the place. Please post your arguments and I will easily dismiss them.

    15:9 It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder, and it is certainly We Who will preserve it.

    2)Shirk.

    I really do not know the difference between Shiasim and Christianity. Even the way they speak is the same. Christians tell me to try Jesus and I read somewhere on THIS form saying try salatal istigatha to Fatimah (shirk). Even these Arab Christians say Ya Isa and Shias say Ya Ali!! Yet when we read the Quran and we see verses that condemn these actions. Do I even need to quote the verses?

    1:5 It is You we worship and You we ask for help.

    And we read this every day in our Salah but we don’t think about what we are saying.

    72:18 And [He revealed] that the masjids are for Allah, so do not invoke with Allah anyone.

    13:14 To Him [alone] is the supplication of truth. And those they call upon besides Him do not respond to them with a thing, except as one who stretches his hands toward water [from afar, calling it] to reach his mouth, but it will not reach it [thus]. And the supplication of the disbelievers is not but in error [i.e. futility].

    This verse clearly calls those who call besides Allah as kafirs.

    35: 13-14 He causes the night to enter in upon the day, and He causes the day to enter in upon the night, and He has made subservient (to you) the sun and the moon; each one follows its course to an appointed time; this is Allah, your Lord, His is the kingdom; and those whom you call upon besides Him do not control a straw. If you call on them they shall not hear your call, and even if they could hear they shall not answer you; and on the resurrection day they will deny your associating them (with Allah); and none can inform you like the One Who is Aware.

    BTW there is a BIG difference between tawassul and istigatha.

    And the verses go on and on. I don’t even want to talk about wilayatul takwinniyah. (The accusation that the Imam has control of every atom in the universe). What is taught in Saturday schools and said on the mimbars is only a small portion of the shirk that we read in the Shia books such as Ali being the Lord (rabb) of the earth and Allah the Lord (rabb) of the heavens.

    43:84 And He it is Who is Allah in the heavens and Allah in the earth; and He is the Wise, the Knowing.

    If you want I can gladly quote some hadiths for you.

    Imammah.

    The SHIA TAFSEER of verses used to “prove” imammah is a joke. They bring a couple of mutashabihat and suddenly they make takfir on everyone who doesn’t believe in it. The lack/absence of verses in the Quran about Imammah is what lead Shia scholars to believe in tahreef. There are even verses that suggest otherwise:

    42:38 And those who respond to their Lord and keep up prayer, and their rule is to take counsel among themselves, and who spend out of what We have given them.

    3:159 Thus it is due to mercy from Allah that you deal with them gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you; pardon them therefore and ask pardon for them, and take counsel with them in the affair; so when you have decided, then place your trust in Allah; surely Allah loves those who trust

    Furthermore, Imammah goes against other verses:

    33:40 Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of the prophets; and Allah is cognizant of all things.

    Watch the video and you will see how he even quotes from Al-mufeed.

    Also, we are given this idea that Imams are better than prophets while Allah says:

    6:83-87 That is Our argument. We gave it unto Abraham against his folk. We raise unto degrees of wisdom whom We will. Lo! thy Lord is Wise, Aware. And We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob; each of them We guided; and Noah did We guide aforetime; and of his seed (We guided) David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. Thus do We reward the good. And Zachariah and John and Jesus and Elias. Each one (of them) was of the righteous. And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot. Each one (of them) did We prefer above (Our) creatures, With some of their forefathers and their offspring and their brethren; and We chose them and guided them unto a straight path.

    After Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى mentions his Prophets, He سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى mentions that they have been preferred over the other creations. You can even give the Quran to a non-Muslim in any language and if you asked him about all the pillars of Islam he would know about them but if you asked him about Imammah he will say "what is that?"

    I would like everyone who has read this post to comment any questions as the more questions you ask the more the truth will be revealed. I would also like to thank websites like anti-majos and twelevershia even though I doubt they read these forums. Also, thank all Muslims that were patient with me and spent their time spreading the truth.

    PLEASE READ THE QURAN WITH AN OPEN MIND AND IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE ARABIC TRY USING A TRANSLATION WHILE IN THE MEAN TIME LEARNING ARABIC.

    Brother, you are all over the page. You need to address one topic at a time. If you joined the Ahlul Sunnah, that is your choice, As a woman who was born-and raised into the madhab of Abu Hanifa and found the truth lies in the madhab of Syed Jafar, the teacher of the Sunni scholars. I found Fitna in the family of alhul Sunnah  and peace in the people of the Ahlul bayt.,

     

     

     

  14. Yes slick Donnie, A "polished" man who seems vindictive enough to go to the state of 2 senators and trash one that is basically dying. I am a resident of AZ and live in a city south of phoenix. AZ is an independent majority state. Everything with him is staged, Perhaps that is why he is so successful in the field of politics.I have washed my hands of politics: It is the world of men and it is fleeting. A t my age it is more important to focus on the Akhira. Amazing fact is that a Sunni Attorney out of Phoenix is running for Senator against Flake. Her name is Deedra Aboud.

  15. Asalaamu alaikum

    I received a wonderful email from a Sunni sister the other day that touched my heart. I simply wanted to share it with you. If this is innapropriate moderators, please remove. I cannot account for the authenticity of the ahadith quoted: and this is Sunni origin

     

    "

    Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love, affection, fellow-feeling is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.” [Muslim]

    If your finger, foot, or any part of your body is hurting, you cannot sleep. Your body may develop a fever while it tries to neutralize the pathogens in an infected part. When one part of your body is trying to fight the enemy, the whole body invariably gets involved in the process. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) described the Ummah as one body!

    So if a Muslim anywhere in the world, in the centre of the body or the tips, on the finger or on the toes, is hurting, you should feel the same pain. If you are only concerned about your safety and the safety of your direct family, then there’s something wrong with you. You are not really part of the body. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said that the Ummah is one body: It doesn’t matter that they are split into different political states or that they belong to different Madhahibs/Fiqh, as long as the person is a Muslim they are a part of your body.

    Sometimes we look at it as, “Only me and my group are Muslims.” Why? Because he doesn’t follow my Jamaa’h, he’s not following my way? As long as you cannot prove that that Muslim is a Kafir (disbeliever), he is a Muslim. As long as you don’t have evidence that such a person is a Murtad (apostate), he is a Muslim; whether he belongs to the same Madhhab or the same group or the same country or not, makes no difference.

    We all talk about the importance of having unity. If having unity means having one group, abandoning all the different Jamaa’ts and getting rid of all of the different Madhahibs, then we’ll all just be copies of each other and that’s an impossible thing to have. The fact that the Ummah is diverse and has these different elements in it, is what makes us strong. If a person running a business just has expertise in one area then eventually that will limit how much business he can get. But if he has people with multiple areas of expertise then the amount of business that they can go after will increase accordingly. What we mean by unity is that even though your approach to Islamic work might be different, the Imam that you follow might be different, you are there to help your brother when your brother is in need; that is unity."
