    Celtic Twilight reacted to dragonxx in is it shirk to talk to jinn   
    That's a question lay muslims should stay away from.
    Any good muslim won't interact with jinn, and any good jinn won't interact with humans. Therefore any jinn that interacts with a human is of bad nature and you can guarantee harm will come your way.

    No doubt the Democratic politicians are warmongers too, but that's a bit extreme. 
    I just made a big donation to Bernie Sanders's campaign. Yes he's a politician and politicians are evil, but he's the only one right now even claiming to want peace. We need to choose the lesser evil. 
    If the elections even count for anything.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to Silas in Should 'The Donald' Be lmpeached ?   
    Simply based on the events of the last few days he should be thrown out of office
    He is a thug, and it is like American Taliban (threatening to bomb cultural and archeaological sites in Iran), and he is acting without authority
    I am just horrified right now of what is going on in this country I am in.

    This is nonsense. I have gone through long periods of my adult life in strict celibacy which means no masturbating as well as no sex and there were no harmful medical or psychological effects, I have though noticed harmful effects of masturbating in my adult life, and before that in my teenaged years I noticed the harm that it did.

    1. It really is not. 
    2.True.
    3. Please do not. Although I watched a really brilliant Iranian film with subtitles on Our Lady Mary which had sort of feminist undertones but was really excellent.

    There is a difference though in wishing an actual Christian "Happy Christmas" and wishing someone who spurns the teachings of Jesus as either Christians or Muslims them totally and completely "Happy Christmas". Iraq is not the contemporary West so that ruling most likely had actual Christians in mind.

    Imam Khamenei advises Christians to adhere to righteousness

    Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a message advised followers of the Jesus Christ together with Muslims to adhere to righteousness.
    Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA): Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a message advised followers of the Jesus Christ together with Muslims to adhere to righteousness.

    "The honor #Muslims attribute to #JesusChrist ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is no less than his position and merit in the eyes of the Christian believers in Christianity," Supreme Leader wrote in his Twitter account.

    "The guidance of #Jesus, the son of #Mary (peace be upon our Prophet and her) is guidance towards worshiping #God and confronting the Pharaohs and tyrants," he said adding

    "Following #JesusChrist requires adherence to righteousness and abhorrence of anti-righteous powers, and it is hoped that #Christians and #Muslims in every part of the world will adhere to this great lesson from Jesus ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) in their lives and deeds," he reiterated.

    Christians celebrate the birth of Holy Prophet Jesus Christ ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) on Dec 25.

    Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif in a message extended congratulations to Christian compatriots on Christmas.

    "Wishing my Christian compatriots, and all across our globe who are observing, a very Happy Christmas and a joyous, peaceful holiday season," Zarif tweeted on Tuesday.

    ‌"The birth of Jesus Christ is a wondrous occasion to celebrate," he added.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to hasanhh in Hosea   
    There is nothing sinful about marriage.
     The Old Testment uses imagery and -specifically in this passage- symbolism.
    Ad hoc harlot symbol, Proverbs 23:27 [Young's Literal Translation] she is a "deep ditch" and a "straight pit". ln a single word, a grave.
    In lsaiah 1:21 harlot is used to describe a city, and in Isaiah 23:15-17 kingdoms. Remembering that in the ancient pagan World, every city and kingdom had a differnt g.od of one sort or another. Harlot is thereby used to describe the Children of lsrael for their pursuing other gods. Baal was one of the more recurrent ones. 
    Therefore, the purpose of the Command was to in-your-face-lsrael-remember the fates of harlots. Doomed to Pain.  Couple this with the First Commandment -Exodus 20:5- wherein the God of Noah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). reveals Himself -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). as Jealous -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). [You can also remember what jealous spouses do.]
    But before any moralizing, remember what Qur'an reveals about Lut's (عليه السلام). wife. Allah -(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). knew what she was before Lut -(عليه السلام). married her.
    So, the passage Hosea 1:2 is more elaborated on than is self-explained therein.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to eThErEaL in We manifest Allah’s attributes? What about evil!?   
    Doctrinally and linguistically and conceptually speaking, it is alright to say that God is Infinite or Absolute and creation is finite and relative.  
    However, one should not remain satisfied or content with this doctrinal, conceptual, understanding (which is a necessary “foundation”).  
    It not sufficient to know of the doctrine or to know of God conceptually or to be able to say “God is Infinite and Creation is finite”.  This is just the baby (but necessary) step in human ascension.  
    One must discover God in and through the eye of the heart.  And We are not speaking of something that sounds rosy and poetic...  we are really serious about this (inshallah).  

    The Imams elaborated on the doctrine to everyone but they also taught the Way of Ma’rifa (or recognition or realization or Enlightenment) to their close disciples who then passed it on by transmission from one generation to the next.  This Shaykh who is speaking is most likely (Inshallah) the result of this transmitted knowledge that has “secretly” been passed down.  It is secretive not because it is “special or that it is only meant for special people”, but rather it is so that people who are not prepared for it should not misunderstand it.  (And also because people who are evil tend to kill anyone who is saying something that sounds new to their ears).  In reality this knowledge is pretty ordinary stuff, but those who don’t know have made the ordinary into something extraordinary.
    God in Himself cannot be conceptualized or categorized or distinguished and this includes even the conceptual category of or the distinction of “Absoluteness” or “Infinitude”.   So when you say God is THIS and not THAT (this is a distinction and therefore a limit) that we are putting on Him.  To an extent this part can be understand with our mind, but in fact this should be understood more through the heart (for it to be really established).  God is Being, He is what it means to be.  He IS.  Can you set Reality apart from anything?  Sure, conceptually we can say Reality is distinct from all that which fake and not real.  But, in fact, upon closer examination, Reality is ALL there IS.  There is nothing “Outside” Reality.  And because there is nothing outside reality, there can’t be anything “Inside” Reality. Reality is not inside anything nor outside anything because it is SIMPLY ALL THERE IS!  This is the meaning of “Allahus-Samad.”  
    There are several levels or ways of answering your question.  Your question can easily be answered doctrinally or conceptually:
     
    Even doctrinally speaking, Everything, the good and the “evil”, are from God.  This is why God has “two hands”, a left and a right HAND.  The right hand is the Hand of His mercy and the left hand is the hand of His wrath.  Yes, evil is another way of talking about God’s wrath.  When one commits evil, he is displaying God’s wrath (this is why such a person is subjected to God’s wrath, not later on But ALSO RIGHT AT THAT MOMENT of doing the evil act.)  When one does good he is displaying God’s mercy.  
    Now, doctrinally speaking, this is not the end of the story.  God is not a duality where He has two qualities that are entirely distinct from each other (namely Wrath and Mercy).  It turns out that this Wrath is a Hidden Mercy.  It turns out that God is NOT wrathful but is entirely, 100% Merciful.  This is why God says in a Hadith Qudsi, “My mercy encompasses my wrath”.  The wrath appears as something which is NOT merciful because of human ignorance that distinguisheS and discriminates between THIS and THAT, between good and bad, between better and worse.  But in REALITY there is only Goodness there is only Loving Mercy.    Only the one who knows God in his Heart and ceases to discriminate between THIS and THAT is capable of seeing that All IS MERCY and that any evil that exists is nothing but a projection from the mind of an ignorant fool.    

    You see evil out there only because it is in you.  The way you see the world is the way you see yourself.  You are what you see.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to 313_Waiter in Mutah and sexual morals   
    I think what separates mutah is a number of things e.g. the permission of the father for virgin (unmarried) women, the observance of the iddah period, a mechanism for dealing with child birth (it will be a legitimate child). I would say a similarity is that it is for the satisfaction of the animalistic desires of the human being, however one is likely bringing you closer to Allah as you are doing something jurisprudentially correct whereas the other is bringing you further from Allah, resulting in moral corruption and potential chaos within society.

    Lol oh man. I’ve realized far too many men, on this site especially are worrying far too much about the actions of other Muslim women. To me, it comes off as you guys are being kinda like ‘you shouldn’t be doing that because you’re a Muslimah, and this is haram’ & oh my gosh lol.
     
    To all my fellow men out there who may be like this, just relax lol. Worry about your own selves. You guys sound like an overprotective & over worrying mother when you say things like this.

    Who really cares what other women decide to do with their photos or lives. Live your own life & use your mental energy to work on yourself & serve others. Don’t use it to be judgemental towards others  
    Take care & Peace be with you all.

    The actions of such attention seeking individuals are feeding into extremly dangerous corruption and Fitnahs without them even realising. 
    We often can't look past our self-centred interests and instant gratification whilst our actions have ramifications that go beyond our wildest imagination.

    Celtic Twilight reacted to Moalfas in Issues of Slaves and Slave-girls   
    Seriously guys?
    SLAVE GIRLS?
    Did you ever care to think why we don't openly curse the enemies of Ahlul Bayt? When we have Many 100 percent authentic narrations of cursing the enemies of Allah and the ones who hijacked Islam? Why didn't you post and discuss those narrations? 
    Why on Earth would you bring such a topic out in public? Slave girls? In this day and age?
    To who's benefit? 
    And don't use the Yazidi excuse. ISIS is not Islamic. Nor were their actions. 
    What is the benefit of such topics to the general Shia/Sunni and non Muslim online browsing public??
    If you want to worry about narrations being omitted in translation, worry about SIX WHOLE VOLUMES of Bihaar Al Anwar being banned from reprinting, and excluded from new prints; only because they contain narrations detaling the injustices committed against Fatima Al Zahra!! That's something to worry and complain about in public. Not 'slave girls'!
    If you're such well versed researchers in Hadith, you would know that Ahlul Bayt have warned against talking too much. Against openly discussing things at the wrong time and to the wrong audience.
    Open a specialist Hadith group and discuss all you want. Because to the average browser, SALVE GIRLS is nothing more than overt sexual perversion. 
    And if you don't want to be 'apologetic' about your faith then curse All the enemies of Ahlul Bayt By Name. Now and Openly. Only then open this topic in public. 
    Otherwise, think before you post in public.
