  1. Sorry this will be my last post iA, but it was a pleasure discussing these "questions" with you, and May Allah help you with your quest to find the truth iA
  2. K, suit yourself, I'll take it any day of the week Have you become sunni yet? This question would be valid from the Sunni perspective, but that would not be fair, because these are shia traditions, the same way I can't read sunni traditions from a Shia perspective, because that would be unfair to them, so to understand Shia books properly you would have to read with the Shia perspective, and the Shia perspective states that the Imams(عليه السلام) are the inheritors of the Prophets, The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) taught Imam Ali(عليه السلام), Imam Ali taught Hasan(عليه السلام) and
  3. Then the souls of the believers come to him and they rejoice more over him than any one of you rejoices when his absent loved one comes to him. They ask him: 'What happened to so-and-so, what happened to so-and-so?' They say: 'Let him be, for he was in the hardship of the world. When he says, 'Did he not come here?' They say: 'He was taken to the pit (of Hell).' Come out discontent, subject of Divine wrath, to the punishment of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime; So it comes out like the foulest stench of a corpse. https://sunnah.com/nasai/21/16 If a mere soul can hear and speak wi
  4. Mahjjah is like the only anti Shia site that can offer a sensible discourse, but still they are quite deceptive, but better than the rest of the lot
  5. Just to reinstate my position, I am not some bigitod Islamaphobe or some ex-Muslim I am simply trying to convey the fact that Islam hasn't been spread solely on Trade and Dawah, but rather early Islamic conquests had a huge hand in the spread of Islam, which no historian will disagree with Also, this is perfectly normal for any religion, and Islam is no exception Just in case anyone may have misunderstood as to what my personal opinion is on the spread of Islam Salam un Alaykum
  6. Perhaps you should read what I wrote earlier again, I didn't just state "That is how the word works" Yes perhaps, if you could show me Buddhism conquering other lands, then I'll gladly change it Parroting? Perhaps you have me confused with some ex Muslim or atheist, I used to believe in the whole "Islam was not spread by the sword" narrative, until I realized to understand other people's viewpoints instead of applying a one sided bias, only then did I realize that Islamic history isn't all butterflies and rainbows Are you going to simply throw aside all of the conquests
  7. W Salam! Spreading politically and being spread religiously are interchangeable terms, it's simple, you take over a certain area of land, and you convert them to your religion, or otherwise they throw you out, it's just how the world works, I didn't create the system Oh it definitely was, so was every other religion, like I said, it's just how the word works I would be that quick to single our the Safavids or the Saudis that quickly if I were you, forced conversions were a know thing among almost all Islamic empires, including the Ummayeds, Abbasids, Ottomans, Safavids, et
  8. Brother I'm not denying that Trade and Dawah spread Islam greatly, indeed they did, but there is absolutely no denying that the conquests by Islamic empires were the main reason behind the spread of Islam Now don't get me wrong, the phrase "Spread by the Sword" seems to sound a bit harsh, but in reality there is no Major religion(except for like Buddhism probably lol) that has not been spread by sword or conquest, it is only natural for such things to happen (Also keep in mid the Jizya also played a factor, for non religious people, converting to save a bit of cash was worth it)
  9. Question: Can I use cracked apps , which I have not done myself? Answer: If someone else has cracked the app, you can use it. Question: Is it permissible to sell pirated programs, DVDS, and software? Answer: If it is against the law, it is not permissible but you can use them. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01153/#25288 You should ask your Marja
  10. Not exactly sure on what grounds you are calling this book nothing, I think it is brilliant, but no mater, there is more https://www.al-islam.org/glance-life-holy-prophet-islam https://www.al-islam.org/life-muhammad-prophet-sayyid-saeed-akhtar-rizvi And one of my personal favorites, and one that I think you will enjoy as well: https://www.al-islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol-2-muhammad-baqir-majlisi This entire volume is dedicated soley to the life of The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) by Allamah Baqir al Majlisi(rh) himself!
  11. Whatever the case is, it is no different even for Sunnis, meaning anyone who isn't unjust(female) is an Imam, which I don't think has ever happened
  12. Still doesn't negate the fact that Islamic warriors fought lands and the population slowly converted to Islam, and yes, trade and Dawah did affect the spread of Islam alot, the beuty of our faith did attract people, but let's be real here, the main reason as to why people converted was due to those conquests, let's just face the facts here.
  13. C'mon you don't really believe that do you? Literally every religion has been spread by the sword, and Islam is no different, whether that be sunni empires like The Ummayeds, Abbasids, The Ottomans, or Shia empires like the Safavids, Fatimids It is not wrong to say Islam has been spread by the sword, because that is the case for every other religion
  14. In the sense that they are either ignorant of the truth and are spreading falsehood, or they are decivers, and they know the truth but still continue to spread falsehood, which can be said to us vice verse
  15. Yes, but he is only pointing out the traditions that both Shias and Sunnis share in common, all the traditions that he referenced to Sunni books are all found in authentic Shia texts, if you scroll and click on the numbers next to the reference, you will see the following traditions: “I am the City of Knowledge and Ali is its Gate, so whosoever wishes to access this City, then let him do so through its Gate " For whoever I am his master and leader, then Ali is his master and leader too. O Lord support whoever supports Ali, and oppose whoever opposes him. " I leave with ye the tw
  16. If that is the case then I apologize, I failed to understand whom exactly he was referring to
  17. Sure, if I get the chance I will, but more likely than not, they will agree with what Br. Toyib says
  18. Yeah and Sunnis don't? It is not unnatural for a sect of 250 million to have a couple of people after the green bucks You may keep this thought of yours to yourself, and we say the same about you and your scholars
  19. Read the grammar argument brm Toyib puts forward, it leaves no room for any other interpretation
  20. Keep your opinion to yourself, we have no need of your accusations on our scholars
  21. Then how do you explain the following sentences: But if you are either ill, travelling, have satisfied a want of nature or have had contact with women and find no water then have recourse to clean earth(Tayyamu) and wipe your faces and your hands فَامۡسَحُوۡا بِوُجُوۡهِكُمۡ وَاَيۡدِيۡكُمۡ مِّنۡهُ Now do you wash your face and hands with the earth? It's simply not consistent How so? Twelvers state that the ayah completely changes who it is addressing to, just like Al Aziz did to Prophet Yusuf in the Quran: Joseph, ignore this. And, [my wife], ask forgiveness for your
  22. Bay3a also means "To come to an agreement", so it would depend on how it is said to determine what it means Which would make a whole lot more sense, knowing that they were making a peace treaty
  23. How? The verse clearly says to wipe your forehead and feet to the ankle, the Sunni response to this is that it was a established Sunnah of The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to wash his feet, do therefore it is Sunnah to wash
  24. Abu Bakr died in the 13th Hijra I believe, also keep in mind that The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) rejected Umar to marry Fatima(sa) because of the age difference, and this same man comes to propose to her daughter
  25. https://www.al-islam.org/prophet-muhammad-mercy-world-sayyid-muhammad-sadiq-al-shirazi/chapter-1-brief-biography-prophet Yes, I believe the correct interpretation would be unjust in the slightest degree, meaning Ismah No, the word "اِمَامًا" is masculine, so there for takes women out of the equation
