    Al-Mufeed got a reaction from Hameedeh in Is This Permissible?   
    There are specific rules regulating the validity of making vows, but the most basic one is that you should make a formal declaration of what the vow is, for example:
    "If I get a new job in the next two weeks I will make it an obligation for my self to pay 100 dollars in charity - For the sake of Allah"
    ^it doesn't have to be exactly like that, but some thing similar, or at the very least the person should have a formalized intention - of what they want to gain from Allah - and what they will give once that thing is gained.
    Until Allah fulfills ones vow (ie gives the person what it is they wanted) they are not obligated to fulfill their portion of the vow.

    In your case you would not be obligated to pray tahajjud - if you began before the vow was fulfilled it would not count towards your vow.

    (Although you should still pray it any way because of the immense blessings).

    Al-Mufeed got a reaction from guest 2025 in Ammar Nakshwani   
    I know that this thread is locked, but I wanted to post this because i thought that it is important. I wanted to post some thing just to make some thing clear. I like Sayed Ammar Nakashwani- i think he does allot of great work, but what he stated in that video is very insulting to many speakers and scholars, calling them a "disease"
    I have no idea what sayed ammar charges or how he spends his money or what his life style is. So I am not going to comment on any of that, because it seems like allot of it is hearsay, and I will not slander the brother based on some thing that I don't know about.
    However I wanted to state some thing in general about scholars/speakers "perparing" for lectures and how much they should be compensated etc. I know several brothers who have very busy lives, they are not scholars - ie they have not spent years in the howza (and just to note sayed Ammar does study these matters in a university with shia and orientalist proffessors, thats what he does with his time - thats what he was studying (classical islamic history) - its not like he is a medical doctor and had to go out of his element completely), any way I know many brothers who speak at different communities and never ask for a penny, despite having very busy schedules, and having to work very hard to prepare for lectures, and calling these brothers a "disease" is extremely insulting.
    I personally know a brother who is a student and also works more than 40 hours a week - whose family has financial difficulties, and he him self can barely afford to put gas in his car - speaks in his own community and other communities and never asks for a penny, except for covering his travel expenses - thats it. I was witness to that, he was working more than full time and still delivering lectures at night time in the month of Ramadhan - for free, even though he had to work, study and also perpare and give his lectures consuming all of his time, he even took time off from his work - to go speak at another community also for free, where he was even willing to sleep on the floor at the masjid instead of charging the community for a hotel or bothering others to keep him in his home, and he even helped them with cleaning and cooking the food for the people who came to break their fast. He also provided quality lectures, and the community enjoyed them and they invited him to come again.
    So understand that it is not neccissary for people to charge allot of money or even any money, when you are working for Allah the reward is enough, and as other people quoted from great scholars charging allot of money for these services is wrong.

    Al-Mufeed got a reaction from Kaya in Is Kitab Al-Kafi Unauthentic?   
    Bismillah
    Salamun Alaykum,
    The book is widely considered the most authentic of shia hadeeth collections. Its author (Kulaini (qas) ) was among the greatest and most respected shia scholars in history; for example:
    Al-Najashi (qas) has said, "In our people al-Kulayni was the chief scholar in Ray, Iran. He was the most reliable in the matters of hadith.
    Al-Tusi (qas), the great scholar has called him the most dependable expert in hadith, the man of highest esteem and a scholar in hadith.
    Al-Majlisi (qas): "He is unparalleled among all the scholars we have seen. The study of his compiling hadith, his manner of editing them, proves him to be a Divinely gifted scholar.
    When it comes to the authenticity of the hadeeths in the book there are various opinions about Al-Kafi (and hadeeth classification) so its not as simple as stating that X number of hadeeths are weak and X are authentic.
    Regarding different opinions about Al-Kafi, there is a group of scholars (although a very small minority) who believe that all of Al-Kafi is 100% authentic. They base this view on the idea that Kulayni (qas) lived in Baghdad during the time of the minor Ghaibat of the Imam (as) and during that time he must have been in contact with the representatives of the Imam (as) and would have shown them his work, and also based on a narration attributed to Al-Qaim (as) saying " Al-Kafi is enough for my Shia".
    The problem is that the narration has no chain, and there is no proof that Kulayni (qas) had his work verified by the representatives of the Imam (as).
    This view is rejected by most scholars.
    The majority of scholars believe that although the book is generally reliable, each hadeeth should be examined. When examining a hadeeth the scholars take two things in to consideration.
    The first is what the scholars call taqseemur-ruba'ee; which is categorizing the isnad (narration chain of a hadeeth) based on the strength of its narrators. In general this is done with in four categories which are:
    Saheeh - Authentic/correct/sound, free of any fault or defect.
    Hassan- Fair/Good, from trust worthy sources.
    Muwathaq - having weight/trust worthy, a narrators that are reliable, but its not known for sure that all of the narrators are Shia ithna Ashari.
    Dhaif - Weak- severe faults in one or more of the narrators.
    You have to take in to consideration that there are several different opinions about narrators, and it is all subject to research.
    Take for example the narrator Sahl ibn Ziyad (a narrator in Al-Kafi) - accused by some scholars of Ghulu (extremism) and thus unreliable.
    Shaikh Al Tusi (qas) states two different opinions about him, one in which he states that he is a sound narrator and another in which he says he is weak.
    Al-Najashi (qas) states that he is weak, but is unclear about the reason.
    Other books such as Al Ghadari's rijal state that he was sent out of Qum for being an extremist and is a liar. However according to the majority of scholars Al-Ghadari's rijal is considered unreliable because it seems to be impossible (according to most scholars) to prove that the book was actually written by him, but there are some (minority) of scholars who consider it reliable.
    Then we have current scholars such as Ayatullah Jafar Subhani (ha) who has revaluated the status of Sahl ibn ZIyad and has concluded (based on his own research/opinion) that Sahl ibn Ziyad was inaccurately accused of extremism and is actually reliable. There are a large number of contemporary scholars that have followed suite.
    The second aspect of examining a Hadeeth is what the scholars call maslakul qaraen. That is when the matn (contents of the hadeeth) are examined, along with the amount of times the hadeeth has been narrated, the opinions of past scholars, as well as how many different chains of narration the particular concept or wording has.
    So when it comes to classifying the hadeeths, various scholars will do so using the criteria that they feel is most appropriate.
    For example, some scholars may feel that the narration chain is the most important thing to look at, and will classify the hadeeths based on that with little consideration to the actual contents. Other scholars may feel that even though a hadeeth has a weak narration chain, it can still be considered Authentic based on other factors, such as its contents, its comparison with other authentic narrations, as well as taking in to consideration the amount of times this particular idea has been narrated.
    Here is an example of that from the most popular commentary on Al- Kafi, Mirat al Uqul fi Sharh akhbar al Rusul (Reflection of intellects in the commentary of the sayings/news of the Messengers) written by Shaikh Al-Islam Alamah Majlisi (qas) :
    Usul al Kafi, Book of the merits of knowledge, chapter 4, hadeeth 1
    Muhammad ibn al-Hassan and Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad and Muhammad ibn Yahya from Ahmad ibn Muhammad, all from Ja’far ibn Muhammad al-Ashari from 'Abd Allah ibn Maymun al-Qaddah and Ali ibn Ibrahim from his father from Hammad ibn ‘Isa from al-Qaddah from Abu Abdillah (as), who has said the following:
    “The Holy Prophet has said, ‘If one sets out on a journey to seek knowledge, Allah will lead him to the path that takes him to paradise. The angels will stretch their wings for the pleasure of the seeker of knowledge, and all that is in heaven and earth, even the whales in the oceans, will ask (Allah) to forgive him. The excellence of the scholar over other people is like the brilliance of the moon over the stars during a full-moon night. Scholars are the heirs of the prophets. The prophets did not leave any Dirham or Dinar (wealth) as their legacy but left knowledge as their legacy. Whoever acquires a share from such legacy has gained an enormous share.’
    Alamah Majlisi (qas) states that there are two chains of narration, the first is mahjool (there is no break in the narration chain going back to the imam, how ever it is not known whether the narrators are shia or sunni) The second narration chain is Hassan or muwathaq, but this does not take away from the hadeeth being saheeh.
    In this case (above) Alamah (qas) has taken in to consideration other factors besides the chain to state that the hadeeth is Saheeh.
    Taking these different things in to consideration you will see that Al-Kafi's authenticity will vary from scholar to scholar.

    Brother Ali, I understand your concern in helping people to reform -instead of giving them no chance and ruining their reputation/life. The reality is that brothers in Qum have attempted several times to warn this individual, he has forgone all such warning. I only opened this thread - after confirming with one of the brothers in Qum that this individual had been aproached more than once - and given fair chance to change and reform.
    Only then did I resort to this. Allah knows best - that I have hidden the faults of many shia brothers - even ones who are much more well known than this particular individual.
    He is dammaging the institutions of the howza in the eyes of the people. I sincerely hope that you do take this issue up with the people at Syed Sadiq Shirazi's office, because I can tell you that this person is specifically hurting the character of Syed Shirazi most of all. I know people - who after seeing the things that this man has said, started cursing him and then turning their curses towards Syed Sadiq. He is attaching him self to syed sadiq and using him to get him self famous and recoginzed.
    He is a danger to the shia community and the Ulamah and the system of the howza.
    when people see a person of this low moral charicter who claims to be a student of the howza, they will in turn make sweeping generalizations about teh whole system as well as the maraja in charge of it.
    He has been warned, and he did not listen. Now he has to deal with the consequences of his actions.
    On a side note, he seems to be loving all the attention, if you look at his social media sites - he has been stating how much attention his facebook and twitter page are now getting because of the words of his "enemies".
    This person is completely unrepentant, and all that he is doing is extremely shameful.
    Ali, brother - I completly understand where you are coming from in trying to protect the reputation of people and not make this site in to a place of rumor slinging, but this person is going too far - and it would be a great diss service to the mumineen at large if he is not exposed.

    Many of you are wrongly associating negative marital behavior as well as over all problematic behavior with an increase in an individual's outward religious practice and furthering secular notions that some how religion causes people to become rude as well as frigid marriage partners. Where as in reality this has nothing to do with people becoming more observant of sharia but every thing to do with culture and individual character flaws.
    People who are not very outwardly observant are not some how less inclined to be arrogant or frigid marriage partners
    Please stop making sweeping generalizations that have no actual basis aside from your own personal opinions.
    Not only is it inaccurate it is also harmful as these types of statements will make others unfairly judge more observant people and create unfounded assumptions in people's minds. It will also cause people to have a negative view of sharia at a subconscious level.

    By beautiful and ugly I am going to assume you mean in a physical sense only and not in the other manner, because really someone who is following the religion and is “religious” will never be ugly.
     
    Most of the time what you think is physically beautiful... or really what you think "beautiful" should look like, is usually socially constructed.
     
    Essentially you will be marketed particular body types/physical features/manners of dress and they will be associated with certain characteristics in movies and stories – for example – for a very long time girls with blonde hair in movies generally are casted to play the role of the woman who is very sought after/seen as attractive/popular etc. In turn – blondes by default were and still are seen by many people as somehow more attractive than non blondes.
     
    I assume you are still young. As you mature and get older and break away from many of the social constructs and mental barriers that Hollywood and other forms of popular culture have created in your mind, you will actually start to see that most humans are capable of being fairly – if not very attractive.
     
    In general if a person practices good/proper hygiene, watches what they eat reasonably and exercises, and wears clean-decent clothing, they will look physically attractive. There are very few exceptions to this.  
    If a girl (or guy for that matter) is not following one or more of the above, it will make them look less attractive, and it also reflects poorly on their character because it doesn’t require an excessive amount of effort, and in fact the things mentioned above are emphasized a lot in our religion.
     
    If you find a potential spouse that is lacking in some of those things, but are over all a good and pious believer – then just kindly speak to them about the issue and assist them in changing.
     
    Otherwise – if you chose to marry a woman solely based on the way she presents herself physically, you will quickly start to realize that there is nothing special about it and get tired of it. Then after all you will be left is someone who is of poor and weak character.

He is a leader who has done many wrong things - however as it stands, his presence and remaining in Syria (or at least the current system - him or not) is better for the region - in fact the world actually, than a takeover by western/gulf arab sponsored takfiris.
    However - please realize that no religious person in their right mind (scholar or layman) would ever actually think that Bashar is a leader of ours or an example to follow in any way. He is just a figure that we have to deal with, and dealing with him is better than dealing with any of the other figures at the moment.
    Your akhira is very precious don't think that because we work with some one or we have treaties with him etc that it means that we agree with all his actions/his life style/view points or take him as an ideal leader of any kind.
    Its just like how rasool Allah made treaties with and worked with various people when it was necessary - to include many of the famous munafiqeen.

    This is a public service message to the community at large in regards to an individual who is purporting to be a scholar of the howza.
    I am aware of the sensitive nature of these types of subjects, and I am only doing this as a duty for the believers to not become misguided by such individuals. This particular individual has been warned by others about his behavior but thus far has not heeded these words.
    His own statements and behavior actually expose him on their own, and when reading the things that he writes one can see clearly already that he is not a person who carries the akhlaq and wisdom of Ahlulbayt (as).
    However what is important here is he is damaging the institution and the Maraja in the eyes of the people.
    This individual is going by the name of "Brother Tawheedi".
    He has set up for him self a facebook page:
    http://www.facebook.com/BrotherTawhidi
    As well as a twitter page:
    https://twitter.com/BrotherTawhidi
    He is also in the process of starting his own website, which (alhamdulillah) at this point is not functional:
    http://www.tawhidi.com/
    He has been speaking at various venues internationally.

    Al-Mufeed got a reaction from Sayyid09 in Khamenei Controls Massive Financial Empire   
    I was going to post the picture of Sayed Khamenie (ha) with the broken sandal, but Repenter beat me to it.
    It should also be noted that his own children ride around on public transportation. Next time some one sees Sayed Khamenie (ha) riding around in some luxary jet wearing 5,000 dollar suits like obama - or ridding in a solid gold carriage Saddam style, please post up the videos/pictures.

    Al-Mufeed got a reaction from Sirius_Bright in Abu Bakr and Umar being Raised from their Graves   
    I still stand by my position that because both Al Bahraini (ra) and Al Tabrasi (ra) narrated it, it speaks towards the soundness of the hadeeth.
    Aside from that going by the other thread linked here as well as the narration I mentioned, I have also come across another narration in Al-Bahraini's Mahajjah, and I have seen narrations about this in other books.
    I have seen at least 10 differnt narrations narrating the same thing, and Im sure with more searching I would come across more.
    This concept of the two being exhumed and then punished , seems to be tawatur manawi, given the amount of times it has been narrated by differnt narrators. I am inclined to say that this is some thing which is true.
    Aside from that I have other hadeeths whose authenticity i have not checked, and will do so and post.

    Abu Mansur Al-Tabrasi narated from Abdul Adheem al Hasani:
    I said to Imam Jawad (as): My master...(Abdul Adheem has a conversation with the Imam about Imam Al-Mehdi (as) but I dont want to write all of it as only one portion is relevant)
    (Imam Jawad speaking): Allah will make him apear to the people after these (the 313) men will have joined him. He will rise with the permission of Allah after his army of 10,000 men will have formed, and he will continue killing the enemies of Allah untill Allah is pleased with him.
    I (Abdul Adheem) asked: How will he know Allah is pleased with him?
    Imam (as) replied, "Allah will place the mercy in his heart. Then he will enter Medina, and he will exhume Laat and Uzza (from their graves), and he will burn them."
    - Al Ihtijaj (2:249) Al-Tabrasi
    - Al Mahajjah (pg 15-16) Al-Bahraini
    Laat and Uzza as we know from various narations refers to the first two.
    Majmaul Rijal of Sayed Khoei (ra) volume 11 page 49 narrator number 6,589:
    ÚÈÏ ÇáÚÖíã Èä ÇáÍÓíä ÇáÍÓäí
    ÞÇá ÇáÔíÎ ãäÊÎÈ ÇáÏíä Ýí ÝåÑÓÊå
    ÇáÓíÏ ÚãÇÏ ÇáÏíä ÚÈÏ ÇáÚÖíã Èä ÇáÍÓíä Èä Úáí ÇÈæ ÇáÔÑÝ ÇáÍÓäí

    ÇáÎíÔ ÝÞÑ ãäåÇ¡ ÝÇÖá¡ ÝÞíå¡ ÕÇáÍ.
    As for Shaikh Abu Mansour Al-Tabrasi (ra), I dont even think its neccisary to comment on his status.
