  1. Salam Alaykum Everyone! There is a unique situation I would like to have a better understanding about. I know the laws around marriage with muslims and ahlul kitab. However, can a Shia man temporarily marry a woman who believes in God but does not particularly believe in a religion yet? I heard that if a woman believes in the oneness of God she is permissible for mut’ah. Not sure. Let me know your thoughts and advices and knowledge :). Wassalam!
  2. Salam Alaykum! I would like to know if the mut’ah can be done through email or a message. For example, both the woman and man agree on the mahr and period beforehand, and then they say the contract through online messaging, let’s an email for text messaging for example. Is this acceptable? Or would a voice message work as well? Wassalam.
  3. Salam Alaykum everyone, I would like to hear more opinions on this matter regarding marriage. Now we all know that marriage is something very important and the Prophet SAWAS said marrying when one is young is recommended and sunnah etc... Now, sometimes marriage can be hard, financially in this Western Society. My request is for opinions on if it would be better to do a mut'ah marriage with an Ahlul Kitab woman until that person (male in this case) reaches a state of financially stable? For example, one could be 20 years old, still in University, living with his parents, etc. Lets say he does a mut'ah with a good woman from among the ahlulkitab, similar age, for 3 years lets say. They could have 2 options, for the female to convert or they can end it as agreed for their mut'ah date. And then once these 3 years are ended, that man could be financially more stable for a nikah marriage. Do you guys and gals think this is better than just waiting out the 3 years? Wassalam
  4. So beautifully said. Thank you for your points brought up.
  5. Shias are the people who followed Ali ibn Abi Talib after the Prophets death. This is basic concept: the Prophet would never leave the entire world without appointing his successor. It would make zero sense if he just built this entire religion and then left the world to a people who were burying their daughters 25 years earlier. There are two groups that emerged on the day the Prophet died, the sect which sticked to the Prophets successor and another sect which did not, and these are the same people who say their leadership is determined by an election, yet there was no election committee, completely ironic. These are the same people that while the Prophets successor was doing the janazah of the prophet, the other sect was busy discussing about power at the place called Saqifah. These are the same people who put Muawiyah in power of Syria, the same Muawiya that was kicked out of the city by the Prophet. The same muawiyah who initiated the cursing of Ali ibn Abi Talib. The same Muawiya who married a christian and brought his child, yazid, around haram, the same Yazid who murdered our beloved Hussain ibn Ali and his family. These are the same people who attacked the house of Fatima and denied her the Fadak. These are the same people who sent Khalid ibn Waleed to kill Malik bin Nuwayrah when Malik agreed to only pay zakat to Ali ibn Abi Talib and not the government of Abu Bakr. All of this is unanimously agreed and stated in the Saheeh of the Sunni Books The Shia are those who held onto the rope of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and his chosen ones.
  6. "So to argue about WHO lead Islam after the prophet doesn't really matter." May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide you brother.
  7. I think it is useless to keep arguing with them brother. In the beginning of this post I posted some logical and clear questions, yet all we got back from these guys is nonsense to deny such a clear as water question. Not a single prophets successor before muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was elected by people, from ALL of THE 124,000 prophets, why should we believe that muhammad has to be downgraded for his successor to be elected by people, the same people who had been burying their daughters 25 years earlier and worshipping stone statues... It's such a clear and logical question and the answer to it unveils the truth easily. We are dealing with their ignorance so there is no point to go ahead with arguing with them...
  8. Salam, I kind of used the wrong wording to describe what I was trying to say. What I mean to say is that I have heard there are surahs which the prophet said are to be recited before sleep those ones, ayatul kursi, the verses of ahlulbayt, the verse of imam alis zakat (ring in sujood). Anyhow, thank yall for the advice, I will go ahead doing so. And by the way, would anyone know how to get my hands on the English version of the Quran Tafsir by Allamah Hussein Tabatabai? Thanks!
  9. Sahih Muslim, Book 31, Hadith 5920. ”His Ahlulbayt are those who can not accept zakat” Meaning Fatima, Ali, Hassan, and Hussein, etc. Sunni version is not even in correlation with your OWN ahadith?
  10. Brother….. I posted these logical statements for those which have a weak foundation of Islam regarding this issue and are maybe trying to find the truth, for them to question themselves and maybe go hey, this doesn’t make sense. I may be wrong. But truly ask yourself, if not a single messenger or prophets successor was chosen by people, why in the world would the last prophet of Islam leave the ummah without appointing a successor. The SAME ummah which had been burying their daughters 25 years earlier. I am not here to insult you brother, this a complete logical claim and the Sunni faith believe in the exact opposite of this which makes no total sense, respectively. I don’t need to go to these other Sunni website and post this because there is no need, you guys believe it was an election for the people and I made these statements saying that it makes no logical sense. Let them rip it to smithereens lol, at the end of the day I’m looking for the truth. Did the prophet not say, the truth is with Ali and Ali is with the truth? That’s in your books. He didn’t say the truth is with Abu Bakr and Abu Bakr is with the truth. Yet we find the Sunni faith admiring Abu Bakr an insane amount more than Ali. There is so much stuff which don’t make sense in the Sunni faith. If God created Islam and our aql, there should be no conflicts between the two. Yet there is so much in Sunni Islam, an INSANE amount. I am here to learn and post my thoughts and research and hopefully it may bring a person closer to the path of Ahlulbayt. When was the last time you went to a Sunni Friday khutbah and heard anything about the Ahlulbayt? If so, very little. Things are not clicking here?
  11. So according to your Sunni version of Ghadir, the Prophet said to hold onto his household? Okay so why did Sunnis follow the caliphs instead of his household. He didn’t say hold onto his companions, or Abu Bakr, or Omar. He SAID HOLD ONTO HIS HOUSEHOLD. Omar ibn AlKhattab appointed Muawiyah ibn Abi Sufyan as governor of Syria. This is the same Muawiyah who was kicked out of Medina by the Prophet and is the same Muawiyah who started the cursing of Ali ibn Abi Talib. So don’t tell me different. There are 2 sides which split on that day, those people who did not follow Ali and those dear companions who followed Ali and did not pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr. NOW ONCE AGAIN, Tell me of just one messenger or prophet of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) whose successor was appointed as an election or by people who 25 years ago were burying their daughters alive? JUST NAME ME ONE PROPHET? YOU CANT! Not a single prophets successor was chosen by an election or people EVER before Muhammad. So don’t come here and tell me that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had to be downgraded and his successor to be appointed by people. Your arguments are all illogical and have no use of aql. You keep quoting Hadith but here you are, failing to understand a single logical concept which a 5th grader would say is common sense. Your sect keep saying the leadership was an election but there was no ELECTION COMMISSION. Omar was handed the caliphate, no questions asked. Your sect is flawed and filled with Bidah.
  12. Assalam Alaykum followers of Ali! I was wondering if anyone would care to provide their input if I should continue to memorize the full Quran or just the important ones which are mentioned in hadeeth? I have memorized Surah 80 to 114 thus far, and I feel that it is kind of useless since I am just memorizing them without understanding the context. Should I continue to memorize the Quran like this or should I read the tafasir (Tabatabai) along with it? If so, my next goal would be Surah 70 to 80 (starting backwards). Anyhow, please let me know what everyone thinks? Need some advice! Wassalam :)
  13. He was quoting various verses which had a whole different context and expects the same context at Ghadeer? LOL
