  1. I believe there is also a quote somewhere (I will have to find the reference) that Saduq concluded that those who added Ali Wali Ullah to the Adhaan were Ghulaat Somewhat refreshing to see that there are Shia in this age who reject this Bid'ah at least
  2. Marrying a Shi'i is generally not permissible in Sunni Fiqh - this this the consensus of every Madhab.
  3. JazakAllahu Khairan I think you are the only person who has bothered to address my question rather than making indirect attacks at Sunnism, so thank you. I agree
  4. It has nothing to do with my arguments here - it was a very obvious lie that was presented by this Twelver Da'wah group in question (which any rational person could agree with Sunni or Shia) that I called out, and they blocked me from commenting on their YouTube channel on 3 seperate accounts posting a very simple refutation (since it was a very obvious lie), and kept only anti-Sunnism comments. They had the cheek to also post that "any comments not related to the video will be removed"; when you comment about the video, unless it supports underminding Sunni Islam, it is removed. Under normal
  5. Circular argument - how did you authenticate the hadith regarding the authentication methods?
  6. I think I made a thread about this but I don't remember: how can one trust Allama Majlisi's gradings if he himself believed in Tahreef of the Qur'an? Surely that means he believed those Hadith to authentic, so why should one selectively trust his gradings? Of course scholars make mistakes, but this wouldn't be an isolated Hadith we are talking about, since there are numerous on the matter of Tahreef...
  7. I swear by Allah I am not lying and I am telling the truth regarding this - it is Ramadhan and I am fasting and do not intend to sin. I do have a screenshoted example however last time I made a thread about this particular organisation and named them and the individuals, it was hidden from public view because it involved exposing that one/two of their members used a Sunni they were trying to convert for Mu'tah which would obviously reflect badly on Twelver Da'wah, so I have not shared it yet as it would name them and risk getting deleted by the mods here.
  8. In Twelver Shi'ism, is it allowed to use arguments one knows to be weak, deleting valid and unbiased refutations of arguments in comments sections of videos or imply that other beliefs have a fault in something that they themselves believe in order to incline the other person to Twelverism? The reason I ask is because there is a particular "Da'wah" or polemical group which I have witnessed do this time and again, so I am left asking the question: is this something which is a valid form of Da'wah according to Twelver scholars or does it simply mean that Twelverism cannot stand on its own t
  9. Seeing stuff like this makes me feel sick. The Qur'an clearly says that ALLAH's names are the best names - Surat Al Hashr has the most names of Allah listed in the whole of the Qur'an, and in the midst of listing His names, he says "SubhanAllahi Amma Yushrikoon" - Exaulted is Allah above what they associate with Him - and after listing His names, He ends it with "Lahul Asmaa'ul Husna" - to HIM are the best names. It cannot get any clearer than this; I cannot fathom how it does not assault the Fitrah of any Muwahid to read such a Shirki Tafsir of that statement (and this is not an attack on you
  10. Hadith were still collected, written and narrated by the Sahabah during their times, and there are numerous hadith indicating this; from what I have seen, Hadith indicating prohibition or destruction during the times of Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthmaan are much fewer in number and have weak/disconnected chains. This claim is only prevalent amongst the Shia but holds no weight otherwise - you can find articles regarding this topic online and there are extensive refutations to this claim out there, but it is suffice to say that it is not accurate at all; the most that could be argued on the basis of s
  11. Respectfully this is an irrelevant point because my post precisely does give attention to chains of narrators - Ilmul Rijaal, clear and consistent methods of authenticating Hadith and varriations of chains from companions, wives and Ahlul Bayt (all direct witnesses of early Islam*) are all prominent in Sunni Islam, whereas there is not this same breadth of sources in Shia Islam. Conversely, Ilmul Rijaal is a science which is used by Shia scholars too but always was to a lesser extent and only became more important later in Shia Islamic history, much after it was adopted into Sunni Islam; that
  12. Sorry this does not address the OPs questions, but I will be addressing the thread title because it will actually address the core issue that should be discussed because otherwise most of the time people discuss tertiary stuff which is not really important and just appeals to one's own confirmation bias, and so I will get to the real points we should be discussing. When considering whether Sunnism or Shi'ism is the correct interpretation of Islam, if we are truly honest with ourselves and not a die hard anti-Shia/anti-Sunni who is blinded by their bias, Sunnism proves Sunni Islam and Twel
  13. This won't answer your question but my observation of Twelvers regarding Da'wah is to let the Sunnis do the leg work in bringing people to Islam (most of the time) and then preying on the fresh converts, or otherwise targetting only weak Sunnis. There is no organised Da'wah effort I am aware of that Twelvers do except to target Sunnis and fresh converts.
  14. None of what you are saying is addressing what the OP is asking - he is talking about apples and you about oranges. He is asking for the Tafsir of the verse, not about this Hadith. As a side point though, all Sunnis accept the Hadith anyway but we understand according to our Hadith that the event took place after a campaign in Yemen after which some of the men under his command were objecting to Ali's leadership and distribution of the spoils, if I remember correctly.
  15. As a Sunni, I am genuinely a little perplexed on this topic. May Allah bless and have mercy upon Hussain and his family and the Shuhadah, but what I am asking is not meant to be insulting, so I apologise in advance if it comes across that way. What is the significance and implications upon the Ummah and the course of Islam regarding the death of Hussain RA relative to the deaths of any of the other martyred Aa'imah? If my understanding is correct, Twelvers commemorate the deaths of all their Imams but from my observations there seems to be specific significance put upon the martyrdom of H
  16. Statements which have been used for various Sahabah are always elevated by Twelvers when said about Ali RA - "He is from me and I am from him" has been said regarding other people (e.g. Julaybib), and similarly "X is like a Prophet except there is no Prophet after me" has been said regarding other people (e.g. Umar). It is a virtue, yes, but it is not a delegation of ongoing authority and power which becomes obligatory upon the Ummah to follow. There seems to be a specific theme amongst Twelver beliefs which incline towards Ghuluw e.g. the weak belief that the Ka'aba miraculously opened u
  17. The very same Hadith which mentions Umar joining them under one Imam - they were already praying in scattered groups around the Masjid which proves that he didn't do anything other than unify them as one group. The other Hadith I would mention is the Hadith where the Prophet SAW led the people in the night prayer a few times but on the last night he did not come out lest it become obligatory upon the Muslims. This shows that praying as a group at night was an acceptable Sunnah but not obligatory.
  18. Out of curiosity, what is the grading of the chain according to your scholars?
  19. The learned people don't justify or allow for female Imams, and the Sunni position is that speed prayers are invalid/sinful. On the other hand, big Shia Ulemma e.g. Ayatollah Sistani, actually allow walking on fire and all these other things as valid forms of grieving, and grieving is is prescribed for Shia like an Ibadah. Obviously this has no bearing on you personally, but my point is only about addressing Bidah according to the Ulemma
  20. The Ulemma say it wasn't Umar who started Taraweeh, rather it was a voluntary Sunnah, and the people prayed alone and behind the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) in congregation during his life time; after he died, people still prayed in congregation and individually, but Umar gathered the different groups under one Imam rather than say have 5 Imams with 5 different Jamaat reciting all at the same time in different parts of the Masjid. Umar thus called praying Taraweeh in congregation 'a good innovation' in the linguistic sense I.e. it is good that Allah/the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
  21. How is congregational Taraweeh a Bid'ah when people used to pray in groups before Umar unified them under a single Imam? Another question that has always perplexed me is that Twelvers have hundreds of things as acts of Ibdah that they do which the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) never taught but why aren't they Bid'ah? A Twelver will seemingly get rewarded by Allah for crawling on the floor through mud like a zombie to a shrine or they will perform Salatul Fatimah but they will not be rewarded for praying as the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) prayed? Sounds about right
  22. Can you prove it was a Bid'ah beyond the linguistic (rather than technical) statement of "What a good Bid'ah this is!" by Umar?
