  1. None as this well known hadith states "knowledge is the list property of the beleiver" But I'd say if you want to spread the knowledge you have gained as a scholar, then a previous skill or qualification would be a good perquisite. That way you will always have another source of income. So your knowledge can be applied independent of organisations and their money.
  2. Imam Ali was neither. Shia are those who accept Imam Ali as the successor of the Prophet and a inffalible authority. As for your points. 1) I might name my children Abu bakar/ Umar that doesn't stop me being a Shia. 2) Zaidi are also Shia and pray 5 times day. And 12er scholars also say it's better to pray 5 seperatly if you can. 3) The refferance of flattening graves is a single narration I believe and not found in Shia text. Also Zaidi are considered very close to Sunni and our scholar say there nothing against building shrines. Sunni Brelwi etc also build shrines. Zaidi are Shia and also are against mutah. So that view doesn't make you "Sunni" 4) I don't know if he gave his daughter to Abu Bakar. But I have heard he gave in marriage to Uthman. If a muslim asks for a hand in marriage unless you have good reason to say no you should give it. Imam Ali follows Islam as revealed by the Prophet. There would be no reason to say no to such a marriage. Unless the person is a open sinner or non believer, or you fear for your daughter in such a marriage etc. Finally these are not matters of beleif so have no bearing on theology and Imamat. It's like me saying Maliki pray with hands down and are therefore Shia.
  3. Thanks for the amazing effort. A contents page where you can go to each chapter would be really useful.
  4. O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our Messenger to make clear to you [the religion] after a period [of suspension] of messengers, lest you say, "There came not to us any bringer of good tidings or a warner." But there has come to you a bringer of good tidings and a warner. And Allah is over all things competent. 5:19
  5. I used science to highlight ego. It's errors in ego not thinking.
  6. Not everyone tries to understand science in this modern age. There are people who believe the earth is flat. I think the process is easy. Over coming bthe ego us difficult. No one can ever claim iblis did not believe in Tawheed. But his ego was such that he rebelled. Israelites were given messengers and miracles one after another. It's not like Allah hasn't given a level playing field. Man has ego, Allah has given every type of intellect and evidence. It's why disbelief and disobedience is such a big mistake. First step , step on your ego, second step , step into heaven (paraphrased from Imam Ali)
  7. They mean exclusively. They follow Ahlulbayt by Imam Ali accidentally as they follow sahaba. Salafi are an extreme an alit fall into nasibi. So I agree if anyone falls out side my generalisation it's them..I'd count some the same as khawarij and Muawiya supporters. Basically the Openly disobedient/munafiq. But thats another topic.
  8. If you take all people that beleive in a creator against atheists. Then we can say logic is enough to come to a conclusion of a creator and divine being(s). From there it should be evidence based and falsifiable. As can be seen by Nabi Ibrahim in Qur'an Surah 6 verse 75 onwards. Surah 21 verse 58-63 Same thing in science common sense and logic can help create a theory but then evidence is required.
  9. It's a big topic PM I'll send you a book. But 3 sources that may explain how it's impossible to "see" , Allah. Quran : He is] Creator of the heavens and the earth. He has made for you from yourselves, mates, and among the cattle, mates; He multiplies you thereby. There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing 42:11 And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, "My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You." [ Allah ] said, "You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me." But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, "Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers." 7:143 Ahlulbayt : Senses cannot conceptualize him, nor can veil conceal him, because of the difference between the maker and the made, the limiter and limited, the master and the subject nahjul balagah Language of the time : Arabs: “It is the face of the opinion (huwa wajhu ar-ra`y).” “It is the right direction (wajhu aš-šawab).” The meaning of this is: “The opinion itself” and “the direction itself.”
  10. This seems to go against the Qur'an and teachings of Ahlulbayt.
  11. Zaidi also use that hadith. We don't agree with tempory marriage. There will be disagreement but my point was that even salafi will use Imam Ali as an authority. I was trying to give an extreme example to show how Sunni see Ahlulbayt as an authority.
  12. What do you mean by "seem" Who is Yogi ?
  13. It depends. For example in 12er Shia fiqh If there is no change in smell taste or colour then yes. Also even if there is change then the following ruling can apply : With regard to water into which an intrinsic impurity like blood or urine has fallen and there is a change in its smell, colour, or taste, in the event that it is connected to kurr or flowing water, or it rains on it, or wind makes the rain fall on it, or rainwater flows on it from a gutter while it is raining, in all of these cases, if the change disappears, it becomes pure. However, the rainwater, kurr water, or flowing water must become mixed with it for it to be considered pure. (Ruling of Sistani).
  14. A very good example would be Salafi using a quote of Imam Ali to justify women not being able to lead men in prayer. I'll try find a refferance online. But it was a direct question asked to a Salafi sheikh. It serves a good example for 3 reasons 1) it's a islamic ruling 2) it was from a direct quote of Imam Ali not a narration of the Prophet "on the authority of Ali" 3) It was a Salafi scholar. Specific examples would be headings of rulings in hadith collections with hadith from Imam Ali. Eg chapter on forbidding wine in in Sahih Muslim or Imam Ali giving rulings on doing hajj for your parents in Musnad Ahmed etc etc.
