    Intellectual Resistance got a reaction from AliTanjiro in The real shia Adhan   
    In the name of Allah, the beneficent the merciful,
    Salamualaykum,
    The following video is the real shia adman, word for word, taught by the Prophet [saw] and his Ahlulbayt. This is the Adan we were told to recite, and does not include the addition of 'Ali-yun waliyullah'. No doubt Ali [as] is the wali of Allah, and while i understand we do not recite it with the intention it is part of the adhan, i feel it is disingenuous to add it to every single adhan so it is actually really whether we admit it or not, now part of the adhan.
    This Adhan is for those who wish to hear the pure, unchanged Adhan, which Ali a.s recited himself, verbatim, exactly as it is here:

    Yes, he is definitely not in that group. I really think this was an error of the brothers at Islamic Pulse to lump him in with that crowd, even if he has been doing somethings one would regard as questionable.

    Not something you want to be saying publicly if you believe it. I think the issue could have been better on an academic front, but that's just my view.

    The lecture wasn't just about Khalid bin Walid, who himself according to Bukhari murdered people until the Prophet (saw) said: "By Allah i am free from what Khalid has done (three times)".  Rather it was one which directly labelled Abu Bakr and Umar as terrorists, compared them to Hitler, Saddam and their ilk, and was delivered in such a manner i don't think is sensible in any way. It caused enormous outrage, especially in the UK, and had a big impact. I had to answer , and i was honest to Sunnis who questioned me and said you're right, this was out of order and against what our major scholars have advised us as to how to engage in these sorts of dialouge.  As a lecture in and of itself, it was also quite weak. 
    I have a lot of respect for Sayed Ammar, twice in my life when i've been literally bed bound, his lectures have gotten me through difficult periods and he has done a lot of good. However, he is fallible and i feel he might want to reconsider his approach and return to the old Sayed Ammar.

    WF is something that scholars agree on as far as i am aware, even Sayed Sistani and Sayed Khui', but the problem is they disagree on the extent of it. Someone can correct me if i am wrong however. So it isn't really just a theory that has no solid religious basis, but scholars might differ on the application of it and to what extent that is. Even Sayed Sistani differed with Sayed Khui' on that. 
    In my view, i don't think their problem is people who don't buy into what Iran is doing with it, but people hostile to it and abusive.
    I am quoting brother Jafar al-Shilbi:
    "This is what Sayed Alī al-Khāmin’īy said in his: Taḥrīr al-Masā'il:
    (Taken from my personal copy al-Khāmin’īy's Taḥrīr al-Masā'il, pg. 22, Question. 41, Dār al-Nabā’ Kuwait, 3rd edition)

    "(and) those who do not profess (/believe) in the Wilāyat al-Faqīh al-Muṭlaqah, whether that be from ijtihād (diligence) or Taqlīd (imitation of a scholar) in the time of occultation (Ghaybah) of the [imām al-] Ḥujjah (May Allāh hasten his reappearance), it does not obligate (/affirm) apostasy and the disembarkation from Islām. And whomever is lead by evidence and indications to not profess (/believe) in it, then he is excused, however it is not permissible for him propagate sectarianism and disagreements between the Muslims".
    See, the version of Wilayah al-Faqih discussed here is the al-Mutlaqah version, rather than WF in and of itself.

    I have been a long time watcher of Sayed Ammar, and i've also met him. Unfortunately, no matter how much of a supporter of his i have been, i have to honestly say that making a lecture and referring to Abu Bakr and Umar as terrorists, and comparing them to Geddafi and the like, is not something i would have expected someone like him to say. There is no difference between swearing at someone and comparing them to an well known butchers, and calling them terrorists.
    We paid dearly for that lecture here, and it's no surprise he even took it down.  However, Salafis managed to save that video and its up anyway.

    @Ashvazdanghe
    السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
    Brother i have no problem with Tawassul, or Istigatha. What i was trying to do is show that although we can and should ask from Allah all of the time, we also have other means, from asking the Dua of those around us, to asking for the intercession of Muhammed and his purified progeny. I have no problems with it and have defended it on this thread. What i am against is when people go to extremes in either side of this debate.

    Just to elaborate further, the Shia believe that every act you make is done so only by Allah creating the existential possibility for you to perform that act. If i type, Allah creates in me the ability to type, and every single act i do, including my very own existence. That is all sustained by Allah at indefinitely, and had it not been, i would crease to exist. A doctor giving you medicine, is only so because Allah sustains that Doctors existence, and yours, and for the ability of that medicine to have any effect. 
    The Mutazila believe/d God created us, but then we create our own actions. If i move an arm, i've created the movement of my arm myself by merely moving it, and God did not need to create the ability for me to move my Arm nor do i rely on him for the existential capability to continue to exist.
    We believe God created us, and that God creates the ability for us to choose our own actions, and there is a constant reliance of God for the existential coming into being for every single thing.
    It can get confusing, but these are very subtle differences with great ramifications.

    Yes, this is correct.
    Anyone who believes Allah has retired from his role of the one who bestows, al-Wahab, and grants, and forgives, and is the one who ultimately decides whether or not to fulfil supplication, and only be his permission and power is it fulfilled is going into deviance and is compromising Tawheed and their Islam.
    The reality is, saying 'Ya Muhammad' does not mean we believe the Prophet (saw) grants any Dua by his will, his power, his judgement and his permission, and that Allah has retired from this - that would be deviance to the highest order and Shirk because you are claiming that the Prophet (saw) can sustain existence independent of Allah, will other than what Allah wills, and this is what the Mushrikeen believed about their Idols. 
    Rather we believe Allah grants us the Dua through the intercession of the Prophet (saw). We believe the supplication to be granted is the one Allah will judge to be granted. Even intercession on the day of judgement will not occur save if Allah permits an individual to intercede for another individual. Allah has not given the Prophet or Imams power to grant Duas, and then retires. Rather, every single Dua granted comes from the power of Allah, who is the one who sustains the existence of every single thing at every single point and is the one who gives existential power for that Dua to be granted. 
    Furthermore, we have many Duas where we call unto Allah, praise him, seek his help, and this is the main way we should be making Dua. The vast majority of our Duas are in this manner, and anyone who claims we are too sinful to ask Allah directly i declare that person a Liar, unless they do not intend the meaning to be the absolute one but a nuanced one. We should beg Allah, weep to him, call out to him, praise him, glorify him with beautiful supplications and know he is the ultimate one we rely on. Dua is our way of building a connection with our creator as well, and anyone who seeks to tell you not to call upon him is a sinner, a liar, and worthy of condemnation if when they are corrected they do not repent and teach what is the truth.
    However, we can also ask family members to make Dua for us. We can ask Allah to grant us Dua through good deeds we have done, through oaths we make of doing a certain thing. We can ask Allah to grant us Duas for the sake of Muhammed and his purified progeny (this should be in every Dua anyway, even if it is just in the form of a Salawat). We can say 'Ya Muhammad' and all of these things have the same meaning:
    Allah is the one ultimately being called, to accept the intercession of whom he permits, by the Prophet (saw) and his purified progeny, in order to grant us our Duas.  Sadly some Shias have gone to such extremes, they have confused the rest of us about what Istigatha is. Extreme acts are found among zealots in every religion and sect.

    Many orthodox Sunnis as well as Shias believe in the concept of Istigatha. The idea is that only Allah has the power to grant Dua, and only by his will and permission does he allow a Dua to be granted. However, when one says 'Ya Muhammad' they are not claiming Muhammed (saw) chooses by his own knowledge, will, and judgement whether to 'grant' a Dua. To believe this means that Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى has retired from some of his attributes and is a heresy and i seek the refuge of Allah from such a deviant belief. What is meant however, is that Muhammed (saw) is the one who intercedes for you before Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, and that through the intercession of Muhammed (saw) Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى grants you your wish and prayer.
    During the time of Muhammed (saw) people used to collect the water that dropped from his arms, his hair, relics, and even saliva to seek a cure through the Barakah of what came from Muhammed (saw).  It is perfect Tawheed to recognise those whom Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى has placed as his authorities and proof, and to show love to them, obey them, and approach Allah through them, indicating obedience to Allah and to those who he has given authority.
    According to a Hasan hadith in Kitab al-Kafi, volume 8, Muhammed (saw) states the in his grave he prays for the forgiveness of the sins of his Ummah. This is also reliably narrated in Sunni works. He is alive in his grave with the capability to receive Salams and answer the Salams (and it is a form of Dua when someone answers your Salam). He is able to receive the calls for intercession and thus able to intercede before Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى for the people of his Ummah, and the same applies to those who Allah has granted this right. It is honorary, and Allah alone is actually the one who decides which prayer to grant, how to grant it, and it is only by his will, decision and power that the intercession of Muhammed and his purified progeny (asws) has any effect at all.
    However there are some Shias who go too far and too much into extremes and say phrases which are dubious and confuse people, and i think work must be done to engage in dialogue and reform some of our own practises.

    You've got to treat this like a battle:
    1. In the long term, try to begin to get ready for marriage, by looking after yourself in terms of your mental, physical and spiritual aspects. Work hard and begin the path.
    2. Post Quran verses in your room, never be on a computer when you are alone but rather try to be on one when you are in a public gathering [as often as is possible].
    3. Lower your gaze at all times. This includes news anchors, people at the store. Although exercise sense with this as well - don't go into any extremes here. 
    4. That desire is strong, and you need to replace it with another emotion that is stronger. Think - what is powerful for you? What feeling do you have that overrides the feeling or emotion of doing the act?

    While there is certainly a point to be made about sometimes going into far too much of an extreme against Shirazis or cults that form in his name - whether he is associated to them or not- it is undeniable there is a lot of Dhalalah coming from that crowd.
    Yasser al-Habib, the son in law of Sadiq Shirazi, has not just 'cursed', by the way. He has belittled and maligned Ulema, called certain companions homosexuals and gone into depth about male-fluid (i can't repeat) which have been translated into Indonesian and spread in Indonesia  - a country hostile to Shias already. It has made the rounds globally and has caused incredible carnage in various forms. His videos celebrating the death-day of wives of the Prophet (saw) and vitriolic lectures without any sense of rationality at best, and clutching at sources the consensus is not even upon, is ludicrous. Furthermore, he , like Saudi-Arabia, is not just someone who makes 'academic' criticism against Iran, but wholesale has launched in propaganda par on par with Saudi-Arabia to abuse, demonise, malign , twist and distort.
    The same applies to Tawhidi , who is and was beloved by the Media - in his early days at least- for writing various articles against Iran, calling them oppressive, tyrants, the cause of much blood and carnage and the like - all mirroring the propaganda parroted by Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, he promotes the same pathetic, weak and unacceptable claim the wife of the Prophet (saw) was promiscuous before marrying him, and after marrying him and was a prolific adulteress.  Put aside the support of the Shirazi group for abusing and for self-mutilation rituals on men, women and children, the issue is far deeper.
    Let's not have a straw man here and put across the idea these are sane, respectable individuals who just differ on jurisprudence and make fair academic criticisms. The problem is much deeper and the argument against them far more compelling.

    They remove part or all of a females sexual organ which is the one which, by far, is the most influential at allowing a women to experience sexual pleasure.
    People who argue for doing it claim it enables a woman to control her urges better.
    People who argue against is point to evidence, studies, and case after case of women not being able to feel pleasure during marital relations, and it truly affecting marriages this way. 
    In the west, it is deemed child abuse, or general abuse if done to women who are no longer considered children. FGM - female genital mutilation, is what it is commonly known by in western circles.  Some consider it absolute cruelty.

Also, if it entails absent mindedness and loss of concentration during prayer, it will be makrūh.

    The others, such as Allahyari, Tawhidi, and Yasser al-Habib are definitely worthy condemnation. They are worthy of condemnation not just because of their anti-Iran stance, but each is uniquely a trojan horse, whether they feel they are or not.
