  1. ameen inshallah! Very well said. We just have a lot of deviants within our communities who aspire to 'divide' and conquer one another, and so everyone is sheepish enough to believe there is some enmity between some of our top-ranking scholars, all pure hearsay imo. Difference(s) of opinion doesn't having bearings with respect. These two scholars are both blessed with an abundance of Knowledge, and their opinions in fiqh isn't something to come between their relationship/friendship. May Allah protect them both and grant them a long, healthy and prosperous life Insha'Allah.
  2. Salam Aleykum to you all, Inshallah you're well! Yesterday, (the 9th of August), Ayat. Khamenei had participated in the annual dusting of the Tomb of Imam Reza (s). The presence of Ayat. Makarem Shirazi & Ayat. Wahid Khorasani can be seen here! [I had to share this - after all those years of people saying how Ayat Khamenei and Vahid Khorasani had 'beef']. Alhamdulillah, heres your proof everyone! haha. [Click this to see Ayat Khamenei and Ayat Khorasani greeting one another!].
  3. Salams, just like brother @IbnSina, I won't bother taking time out to listen to this dude's nonsense (as would anyone else to be honest). I assume you're probably going on about the 'thighing' verdict. The thing with this is, its a fatawā that is almost non-pliable in these recent centuries. Imam Ruhōllah Khomeinī's response on this matter was theoretical, it was not viable enough to be a practical source of order. In addition to this, with all due respect brother, you seem confident that this so-called Sheikh is spot-on with what he's uttering, but are you aware of the fact that many of the Ulamāh that he respects and reveres have reached the same conclusion regarding this? (Refer to this thread on ShiaChat): 'Imam' Tawhidi is a joke, he lies through his teeth, uses false narratives to suit his own agendas. Also incase you're not aware, he claims to have studied at the Hawzah Illmiyah of Qom, at Al-Mustafa International University at Masters Level. Funnily enough, the university released an official decleration saying that he didn't even finish his one-year priority Farsi course, let alone a Masters! (Also in this announcement, they deemed him completely unfit to do tabligh).
  4. Heck, at Husainiyāt Rasool al-Adham (A centre that honours the Shirazi family - with their portraits on the walls) they held a La'anah Majlis in honour of Ayatollah Khamenei (h).
  5. The irony here is, many brothers would want a 'virgin' as their wives. But they perform (or would) Mutãh left, right and centre (if given the chance). I don't see a problem in it. If a sister has done mu'tah in the past, we shouldn't peer down at her. The 'past is in the past'. Define people by their actions they do in their present day and in their future. You cannot undo the done. Before people start nit-picking at others, they should look at their own actions and their own past. To summarise - It wouldn't bother me. What you have done is ordained as halāl and completely within the frame of Islam. There is nothing to be 'bothered about' in regards to your question and Insha'Allāh people look over this stigma we place on our sisters especially within this matter. (Note - this isn't an attack on any brothers or sisters (especially within this thread). It's just a general speculation). "And the women of purity are for men of purity and the men of purity are for women of purity.." [24:26 - Surāh al-Nür].
  6. Wow, can the bar be set any lower than this? These words spewing from his mouth are poison..
  7. Asalam Alaykum warahmatullah. Insha'Allah you're all well. I am desperately in need for an arabic speaker/writer who is able to translate a video from Arabic to English. This is the video below (please translate the whole lecture if possible, if not then most importantly the part in which he compares Ayatollah Khamenei to Firawn). Simply just write the english translation, no need for tranlit or original arabic text. God bless you and protect you in advance.
  8. I would say Iran, either in Mashhad or Qōm, but if not Iran, then Syriā by the daughter of Alī and Fatimāh (a).
  9. Shares the same opinion as I, regarding Facebook.
  10. Walaykum Asalam. The propagation of the message of Abā Abdillāh Al-Husayn first began soon after the tragedy of Ashurā took place. When Lady Zaynāb, Imam Zain al-Abideen (a) and the women and children were paraded from Kufā to Shaām. But to hold a gathering, relaying to the tragedies of Karbāla, Lady Zaynāb soon started this in Damascus (Shaam) after being released from the prisons of Yazid al-Laeen. And there after as brother @shiaman14 had stated, she continued to do so on her journey back. But from what I can recall, the first eulogies (latmiyyeh or poetry) were initiated by Um al-Baneeñ (s), and thus, she would organise Majālis for the martyrs of Karbāla Al-Muqadasāh, and ever since then we have been commemorating the greatest tragedy in the pages of history, and are indebted to these holy personalities for granting us with such an honour to mourn over this cause.
  11. Thats absolutely amazing! How did you get blessed with such an opportunity?! I know with Ayatollah Sistani (may Allah be pleased with him and his efforts) you can visit him in his house, located in Najaf. But his eminence, Ayatollah Khamenei never seems to get the time off! Did you visit him in his house?
  12. If that scrub had some form of transferrable najasah on it, then I would think so. However, if there is nothing of the sort, then you should be fine.
  13. Asalam Alaykum. cleaning the inner cervixes of the body are not a part of the ghusl. In reference to Ghusl al-Janabah, the following is the opinion of Ayat. Sayed Ali Khamenei (r): (I apologise if you do not follow his eminence (Sayed Ali Khamenei), but from what I have read, many of the marja3 share the same opinion. But obviously, please do not go by my hearsay). The way of doing sequential ghusl is to make the intention (niyyeh) for ghusl after making the body pure (removing all the najasah/uncleanliness from the body). Thereafter, one washes his head and neck first, then washes the right half of the body, and, afterwards, the left.
  14. Walaykum3salam. I would say 1) Female empowerment is a good one. Tying in the women of our holy household (a). "One who educates a woman, educates an entire generation.." 2) Turning thoughts into actions - Regarding the arrival of the Imam (ajtfs). 3) Uniting under one banner - (Unity - Shia/Shia - Shia/Sunni).
  15. Asalam Alaykum Warahmatullah wabarak. Insha'Allah you're all well. I was just wondering if anyone here knows their way around Al Mustafa IU's online university? I applied for the Persian Course, but I have no idea what to do and what I should be clicking or stuff lol. The website isn't as clear as it could be (to use). So would greatly appreciate some help on this if possible Jazak'Allah kehyr in advance.
  16. Asalam Walaykum, wara, wabarak. Insha'Allah you're all well. I just wanted to ask if anyone was aware of the regulations and conditions on visiting the blessed cemetery of Al-Baqee? I am aware men are allowed inside the cemetery (whereas women are not). However, are you allowed to recite the Ziyarah of the four Imams (a) who are resting there? Alongside Um'al-Baneen (s), Fatima Bint Asad (s), etc. And if one did decide to stop and read Ziyarah, would there be any consequences? Ma3salamah.
  17. Ansariyan Publications - based in the holy city of Qom, Iran.
  18. Truly. Each scholar has entitlement to a difference of opinion. To use derogatory terms against one who does not share the same stance as oneself, is unethical and unislamic. No wonder he (Mojtaba Shirazi) is in London. Over here he gets the protection he 'needs'. He wouldn't be running his mouth should he have remained in Iran.. In some figures of speech, you could say he is a 'keyboard warrior'. (does everything behind a screen).
  19. There had to be some justification for his arrest. And these people act like he was innocent.. Given the extensive background of majority of the present shirazi clan, I wouldn't be surprised..
  20. Asalam walaykum, warahmatullah wabarak. Insha'Allah you're all well. I just had a question which was lingering in my thoughts and thought id share it with the rest of you. Why do some scholars send la'anah and openly slander and curse other scholars whom many revere? One example is Sayed Mojtaba Shirazi. The countless attacks he's given on Ayatollah Bahjat (r), Fadhlallah (r), Khamenei (r), Imam Khomeini (r). What is his reasoning for this behaviour? Is there any justification for this? Is he in the right? He stops at nothing and he's one of the biggest causes of fitnah amongst our shi'ia communities today. God bless for reading this topic, and Insha'Allah I sincerely hope we can all learn from one another. Jazak'Allah Walkheyr in advance.
  21. Asalam alaykum, wara waba. Inshallah you are doing well. I just wanted to ask if anyone knew how to/where to learn the arabic language to the extent that one may understand and speak it? (I am based in London - UK). Also, I do not wish to look into University courses as I cannot attend them currently. Perhaps any useful online resources, or Husayniyahs you may know of within London which teach Arabic? Ja3zakallah.
