  1. "O God! I ask you to give me conviction; in this way, you will make the hardships of the world seem easy." (Imam Sajjad (عليه السلام)) 
    Mizan Al-Hikmah V10, P788

  2. I hope that by "a person" you mean any marja, "their beliefs" would mean his belief, "they must be wrong" mean he must be wrong. If this is your real argument, then you're advocating that there should be no certainty in "beliefs".
  3. Please elaborate what do you mean by "things" here? Are you talking about religious rulings here? For newly evolved things they do ijtihaad.
  4. Then who are the mithl of وَلاَ الضَّالِّينَ ? But lets see who are dhaleen as per Qur'an: نَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بَعْدَ إِيمَانِهِمْ ثُمَّ ازْدَادُوا كُفْرًا لَنْ تُقْبَلَ تَوْبَتُهُمْ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الضَّالُّونَ {90} [Shakir 3:90] Surely, those who disbelieve a,fter their believing, then increase in unbelief, their repentance shall not be accepted, and these are they that go astray. So do you think that Prophet was a Kafir or a Mushrik (na'uzobillah) in anywhere in his life time? And how do you describe what is meant by Prophet being dhaleen?
  5. So the Islam we are learning is not perfect (Kamil). Is this you want to say?
  6. That's the title of this thread "Offensive Jijad under infallible Imam only". Qur'an & Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) both are infallible and the Imams from Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) too
  7. I am 100% agree with you here. Prophet is not God but a person who is given a perfect religion (kamil deen) and then given the responsibility to teach that, these two demands that the person should be infallible. "ma dhalla sahibokum wama ghawa"
  8. Actually it is mentioned in the tafseer of chapter Al-Adiyaat [Shakir 100:3] Then those that make raids at morn, Enemy is not moving but they do planned to launch surprise attack and raised army for that. The response from Muslims was a sort of preemptive strike. I think it can come under offense because you have questioned who will attack first.
  9. He breathed into him the Spirit (Rooh) which is divine command (Qulir-Rooho min amr-e-Rabbi).Obviously we are not Allah But I think otherwise وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَنْ تُؤْمِنَ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ Therefore Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is infallible because he is the bearer of the noor we know as Noor Allah. وَلَكِن جَعَلْنَاهُ نُورًا نَّهْدِي بِهِ مَنْ نَّشَاء مِنْ عِبَادِنَا وَإِنَّكَ لَتَهْدِي إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ 42:52
  10. "The tribes of Bani Salim raised a huge army to launch a surprise attack on Madina in order to kill the believers and arrest the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet, after receiving the information, sent one of his companions along with a party of Muslim warriors to prevent the planned attack" Perhaps this is the example with us for offensive Jihad!
  11. The parable as mentioned in the verse mentions Mishkaat, Misbah, Zujaj, etc. Are we (all humans) the mithl of "La Sharqiyah wala Gharbiyyah"? Secondly, When we say our noor, you also need to elaborate a bit, are you talking about noor-e-emaan which will move ahead of us or on the right side on the promised day?
  12. Indeed we need to mention it whenever discussing the companions "the true companions". So do you think that the Al-Hadi on these two days (I.e, day when he threw peebles, the day when he took allegiance under the tree) appeared (as He is Al-Zahir) before us as Noor-e-Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)?
  13. Hindu do believe in one God, and they have different names Eshwar, Bhagwaan, Prabhu etc. Lets see the story of Adam and eve which they claim present in their book: Isn't it weird? Lots of problems in this story and their concept of God too.
  14. Salamun Alaikum!! There is a famous hadith "Awwalo ma khalaq Allaho noori" (Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has created my noor first). There is another hadith which mentions "Kunto nabiyyan wa Adama baynal maa'e watteen" (I was the Prophet when Adam was between the stage of water & clay). The hadith which mentions that Prophet and Ali were created from the same noor is authentic. Following link provides detailed analysis of hadeeth e noor https://www.seratonline.com/22355/analysis-of-the-tradition-of-light-hadis-e-nur-part-1/
  15. I can discuss this matter in more detail and can share with you more information. But not at the moment, right now, I am continue my focus on the matter I am discussing. So it is Madinatul ilm (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), who is mentioning the merits of his companion. And he (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) equalizing him with a Ma'soom in modesty and austerity. It is a lesson for us that anyone from us who strive to achieve self purification & struggle in the way of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can achieve the status equals to Prophets in any field. Now lets get back to Qur'an, who are the ulil azm Prophets? Nuh (عليه السلام), Ibrahim (عليه السلام), Musa (عليه السلام), Isa (عليه السلام) and Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), lets see the story of one ulil azm Prophet (Musa (عليه السلام)) from Qur'an: فَوَجَدَا عَبْدًا مِنْ عِبَادِنَا آتَيْنَاهُ رَحْمَةً مِنْ عِنْدِنَا وَعَلَّمْنَاهُ مِنْ لَدُنَّا عِلْمًا {65} [Shakir 18:65] Then they found one from among Our servants whom We had granted mercy from Us and whom We had taught knowledge from Ourselves. قَالَ لَهُ مُوسَىٰ هَلْ أَتَّبِعُكَ عَلَىٰ أَنْ تُعَلِّمَنِ مِمَّا عُلِّمْتَ رُشْدًا {66} [Shakir 18:66] Musa said to him: Shall I follow you on condition that you should teach me right knowledge of what you have been taught? قَالَ إِنَّكَ لَنْ تَسْتَطِيعَ مَعِيَ صَبْرًا {67} [Shakir 18:67] He said: Surely you cannot have patience with me This is the story of Khidr (عليه السلام) & Musa (عليه السلام). Was Khidr (عليه السلام) mentioned as a Ulil Azm Nabi? Yet he seems to be more knowledgeable and hence placed on greater level of patience as compared to the Ulil Azm Nabi. Interestingly, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has introduced him as "one from among my servants" (Abdan min ibadena) just like He has used similar words for Prophet Isa (عليه السلام) in the following verse: إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا عَبْدٌ أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلْنَاهُ مَثَلًا لِبَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ {59} [Shakir 43:59] He was naught but a servant on whom We bestowed favor, and We made him an example for the children of Israel. Now get back to the verse 4:69 and see again its content and try to understand why I was saying in response to the "absurd" question: who is superior Isa (عليه السلام) or Abbas (عليه السلام)? وَمَنْ يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنَ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاءِ وَالصَّالِحِينَ ۚ وَحَسُنَ أُولَٰئِكَ رَفِيقًا So who knows exactly that who has been granted greater in'am? Obviously only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows that. What I know is that Abbas (عليه السلام) has indeed obeyed Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and has sacrificed his life as well as the adornment of this worldly life "fee sabilillah". I am neither a Prophet nor a scholar to give any religious verdict, I am just a student who is holding the thaqalain in my hands and I do read them and try to understand them with my limited knowledge. I do reserve the right to differ in opinion with any of my respected scholars. I have my own mind and own way of analyzing the information. Nowhere I have mentioned the overall superiority of hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام) over any Prophet, instead I am continuously maintaining the "had-e-adab" while discussing the merits of ma'soom and ghayr-e-ma'soom. No one become mo'min if he does not believe in the Prophethood of Isa (عليه السلام), no mo'min can ever deny that he is Kalimatullah, Ruhullah etc. What I have learned from my studies is that the most beloved title to almost every Prophet including Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), is the title of "Abd". Isa (عليه السلام) is Abd, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is Abd, Ahlul Bayt are Abd and in this "Abdiyaat", Hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام) has secured his name and our Imams have called him "Abd-us Saleh". I don't know what in'am Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will grant him for his "be-mithl" service and sacrifice and sincerity, whether it will greater than Isa (عليه السلام) or lesser, greater than Musa (عليه السلام) or lesser etc. What I know for sure is that it will be less than Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) I think I have repeated and elaborated with full politeness, whatever I have said earlier. I am now out of this thread and will not respond here. Wassalam
  16. Yes that is God, the One who threw peebles, the One upon whom hand companions pledged allegiance.
  17. Replying without even reading and watching the references!!
  18. Imamate has been mentioned as a divine covenant in Qur'an. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) took the test of Prophet Ibrahim (عليه السلام) prior to granting him the Imamah. Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 124: وَإِذِ ابْتَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ رَبُّهُ بِكَلِمَاتٍ فَأَتَمَّهُنَّ قَالَ إِنِّي جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَامًا قَالَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي قَالَ لَا يَنَالُ عَهْدِي الظَّالِمِينَ And when his Lord tried Ibrahim with certain words, he fulfilled them. He said: Surely I will make you an Imam of men. Ibrahim said: And of my offspring? My covenant does not include the unjust, said He. (English - Shakir)
  19. For all those who want to know & learn about the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), (those who are mentioned as ulil amr & whose obedience is obligatory as per Qur'an), should start their journey with hadith e kisa specifically the phrase "innahum minni wa ana minhum".
  20. Time to permanently fix these tongues: "Shaheed Thalith Allamah Nurullah Shustari writes: "He was one of the greatest companions and is reckoned among the foremost of the companions who embraced Islam. In embracing Islam his number was third, that is, he embraced Islam after Mother of the Faithful Khadijahtul Kubra and Commander of the Faithful Ali. According to the author of "Isti'ab" he was distinguished in knowledge, austerity, piety and truthfulness, among all the companions. Ali has said that Abu Dharr achieved that position in the acquisition and comprehension of religious learnings which nobody else could reach. The Holy Prophet used to say, "Abu Dharr is like Prophet Isa in my ummah. Abu Dharr possesses the same austerity as Prophet Isa had". According to a tradition one who wants to see the modesty of Prophet Isa should see Abu Dharr. Shaykh Saduq in his book “Uyunul Akhbar ar-Ridha” writes that Imam Ali ar-Ridha (a) has said from the authority of his forefathers that according to the hadith of the Holy Prophet, "Abu Dharr is the truthful person of this ummah". Ali says that Abu Dharr is the only person who will never care for any reproaches about Allah and His orders and commands, that is, he will say whatever is right and will act upon it, and will neither care for any threats in this connection, nor will he be over-awed by the power of the government. Scholars have written that Abu Dharr had sworn allegiance to the Prophet (s) with the promise that in the faith of Allah he would not care for any reproacher and that he would speak out the truth howmuchsoever bitter it might be. Truthfulness and courage is a quality which even the greatest personalities do not hold fast. The Holy Prophet (s) has prophesied this quality of Abu Dharr and said that Abu Dharr would perform a great role in this matter and will remain steadfast even in the face of severe persecution which he had to bear. The Prophet said: "There is nobody more truthful than Abu Dharr between the canopy of the sky and the carpet of the Earth".1 In the elucidation of this hadith Allamah Subaiti writes: “The Holy Prophet addressing his companions said, "O my companions! Who is one out of you who will meet me on the Day of Reckoning in the same condition in which I leave him in the world?” On hearing this everyone kept quiet, except Abu Dharr who spoke that it was he. The Holy Prophet said, "No doubt! You are true". After that he added, "O my companions! Remember what I am telling you. There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr".2 Allamah Majlisi has written some narratives after having quoted the above mentioned tradition in his book Hayat ul-Qulub. Ibn Babwayh has narrated on reliable authority that somebody asked Imam al-Sadiq if Abu Dharr was better than the Ahlul Bayt of the Holy Prophet or otherwise. The Imam said, "How many months are there in a year?" He answered, "Twelve". The Imam said, "How many of these months are respectable and sanctified?" He said, "Four months? The Imam asked, "Is Ramadhan also included in those four months?" He said "No". The Imam asked “Is Ramzan better or those four months?" He answered, "The month of Ramzan is better". The Imam said, “The same is the case with us, the Ahlul Bayt. You cannot compare anybody with us". One day Abu Dharr was sitting in the company of people who were describing the virtues of this nation. Abu Dharr said, "Ali is best of all in this nation, and he is the apportioner of Heaven and Hell, the Siddiq and Farooq of the ummah and, the divine proof for this nation". Hearing it from him those hypocrites turned their faces from him and refuting his statement called him a liar. At once Abu Amamah rose from there, went to the Holy Prophet and told him what Abu Dharr had said, and how that group had refused to accept it. The Holy Prophet (s) said, "There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr". The same book has narrated on another authority that somebody asked Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a) if that was an authentic hadith wherein the Holy Prophet (s) has declared like this. The Imam said, "Yes". He said, "Then what positions do the Holy Prophet, Ali, Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn hold?" The Imam replied, "We are like the month of Ramadhan which contains one such night the worship of which is equal to that of one thousand months while the rest of the companions are like the respected month in relation to other months, and nobody can be compared with us, the Ahlul Bayt". It becomes as clear as day light from the above mentioned hadith of the Holy Prophet that Abu Dharr was second to none in truthfulness. The commentary and the elucidation of the same hadith as made by Subaiti, describes that Abu Dharr will leave the world in the same condition, in which the Prophet had left him, and will see him in the same condition in the Hereafter. If it is looked into deeply, Abu Dharr's firm stand on the path which had been strengthened by the Holy Prophet (s) reveals his important virtue. Scholars agree on the point that Abu Dharr did not swerve an inch from the path of the Holy Prophet. After the Prophet even a companion like Salman was forced to swear allegiance and was so much beaten in the masjid one day that his neck became swollen. But Abu Dharr was never found silent." https://www.al-Islam.org/the-great-companion-of-Prophet-Abu-dharr/chapter-6 Interestingly, a similar hadith which mentions Abu Dharr (رضي الله عنه) as Isa (عليه السلام) of Ummah is also present in Sahih Tirmidhi.
  21. Surah An-Nisa, Verse 150: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْفُرُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يُفَرِّقُوا بَيْنَ اللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيَقُولُونَ نُؤْمِنُ بِبَعْضٍ وَنَكْفُرُ بِبَعْضٍ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَّخِذُوا بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا Surely those who disbelieve in Allah and His apostles and (those who) desire to make a distinction between Allah and His apostles and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and desire to take a course between (this and) that. (English - Shakir) Surah An-Nisa, Verse 151: أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ حَقًّا وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَذَابًا مُّهِينًا These it is that are truly unbelievers, and We have prepared for the unbelievers a disgraceful chastisement. (English - Shakir) These two verses are giving a precise answer to your question.
  22. Yes you two are the genuine believers, be happy with your emaan. May Almighty Lord increase your emaan I am a very happy horse worshipper or hero or alam worshipper or Abbas or Ali (or name any one else) worshipper. May Almighty Lord grasp/make accountable you two on the day of judgement. I will be standing as victim and will put my case to Him (In-sha Allah)
  23. Shiachat is always famous for unique thoughts, there are many who challenge the work of "more learned" Shia. I don’t really need to tell my madhab, you already figured it out, hero worshipping,
