  1. This means that probability emerges from reality. For instance, Existence is a reality, a necessary thing but that becomes possible at some point. Our journey is from uncertainty (possibility) to certainty (reality). Happening has nothing to do with certainty rather consciousness has something to do with certainty. For instance, are you certain that your life will continue to the next hour? Continuation of life to the next hour is what you understand as "happening". So unless "Consciousness" is not there, there will be no certainty whatsoever. So lets suppose, you are uncertain about the continuation of your life for the next hour, and you died after an hour. How would you become certain that you are dead? What would be the worth of someone's certainty if you remain uncertain about yourself? You must have died in certainty because one name of death is certainty. And that is only possible if you witness your own death and see your dead body too after your death. Means your consciousness must be there to become certain of your death. While your statement "everything happens with certainty" demands the continuous presence of consciousness everywhere, where something is happening. If there is no possibility, can the reality be ever known?
  2. Why you have placed three things in your question? Is there any difference between "you" & "nafs" in your mind?
  3. I want to know what is the surprise for you here? The secret birth of Imam of our time or his occultation? As for his secret birth, this should be not a surprise for those who are attached with Quran and history. Ibn Atheer al Jazari whilst writing on the life of Prophet Ibrahim ((عليه السلام)): دخلت السنة التي ذكروا حبس نمرود الحبالى عنده إلا أم ابراهيم فإنه لم يعلم بحبلها لأنه لم يظهر عليها أثره، فذبح كل غلام ولد في ذلك الوقت، فلما وجدت أم ابراهيم الطلق خرجت ليلا الى مغارة وكانت قريبة منها فولدت “In the year that the Courtiers had referred to, Nimrod ordered that intelligence be kept upon all pregnant women, but no information was ascertained on the mother of Prophet Ibrahim ((عليه السلام)), as they had no knowledge that she was pregnant, she portrayed no [outward] signs of pregnancy. At that time whichever boy was born was executed by Nimrod, when the mother of Ibrahim (عليه السلام) began to feel labour pains, she went into a cave at night, that was nearby and Ibrahim was born…” Tareekh Kamil, Volume 1 page 31 We also know that, during the time that Prophet Musa ((عليه السلام)) was born, Pharoah saw a dream, and his courtiers also advised him that a child would be born from the Banu Isra'il, a child that would end his reign. Applying the policy of Nimrod, Pharoah issued an edict that all new born babies were to be killed. Furthermore, spies would enter homes and touch the stomachs of women to determine whether on not they were pregnant. If a woman was pregnant, the order was to murder the unborn child. Yet Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made the pregnancy of the mother of Musa (عليه السلام) a secret, so much so that her midwife had no knowledge of this pregnancy. On this issue the comments of Ibn Kathir are of interest: فلما حملت أم موسى به، عليه السلام، لم يظهر عليها مخايل الحمل كغيرها، ولم تفطن لها الدايات “When the mother of Musa (عليه السلام) fell pregnant, she did not portray the signs of pregnancy that are present in other women, and the midwives were unable to ascertain that she was pregnant”. Tafseer Ibn Katheer Volume 3 page 380, Surah Qasas, Verse 7
  4. This is exactly what nawasibs say. I am surprised to see you are using the same argument. So lets first settle the case of Ja'far al-kadhab (assuming that it might be your source): "So the ark floated with them on the waves, towering like mountains. And noah called out to his son, who had separated himself from the rest: “O my son! Embark with us, and be not with the Unbelievers!” The son replied: “I will betake myself to some mountain. It will save me from the water.” Noah said: “This day nothing can save from the Command of Allah, any but those on whom He hath mercy!” And the waves came between them, and the son was overwhelmed in the flood. Then the word came forth: “O earth! Swallow up thy water, and withhold thy rain!’ And the water abated, and the matter was ended. The Ark rested on Mount Judi, and the word went forth: “Away with those who do wrong!” And Noah called upon his Lord, and said: “O my Lord! Surely my son is from my family! (ahli), and Thy promise is true. And thou art the Justest of Judges.” He [Allah] said: “O Noah: He is not of thine family; for his conduct is unrighteous.” (11:42-46) These verses establish that the mere fact of possessing a physical lineage to a Prophet does not establish infallibility, or that one has been purified in the same way as that Prophet. As such, Ja’far al-Kadhab’s lineage to the Prophet (s) means nothing here. A person may have such lineage and be thoroughly evil, and Ja’far al-Kadhab was one such person. The fact that he did not know about the birth of Imam al-Mehdi (عليه السلام) does not indicate that Imam al-Mehdi (عليه السلام) was not born; rather, it is a sign that, because of Jafar’s impiety, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) kept this birth a secret from Ja’far, as He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) kept it a secret from the ruling Abbasid dynasty. Factors such as the lack of knowledge, the character of pathetic people, and the ill intentions of the ruling class, lead to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) keeping the birth of his representative a secret. Usul-e-Kafi carries a tradition on this: To the ruler, Imam Abu Muhammad ((عليه السلام)) died without bearing a son. He distributed the Imam’s (as)’s property, and the people who did not deserve it, took it. The ruler is looking for him, every where people are running around asking for him. No one should be associated with them, or tell them anything. The name you are asking, if told, the search would become easier. Therefore, be afraid of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and don’t ask about the name of the Imam (عليه السلام). Usul alKafi, Volume 1 page 330 Shaykh Majlesi decalred it Sahih in Mirat al-Uqool, Volume 4 page 5 Though with a weak chain, there is another tradition which states: Ali-bin-Qais narrates from a military policeman that even I have seen Seema (slave of Jafar) in Serman Rai; he broke the door of Imam Hasan AlAskari’s (as)’s house. A man appeared from inside with an axe in his hand. The man asked Seema, what are you doing at my house? Seema replied Jafar thinks that your father (عليه السلام) died without giving birth to any children, but if this house was yours, then I should return. Saying that, Seema left the house. Ali-bin-Qais says that immediately after this, one of the servants came to us, and I asked him about this. He asked me, ‘who told you about this?’ to which I replied that a military police man told me, the servant replied, pretty soon, nothing shall remain secret from anyone. Usul alKafi, Volume 1 pages 331-332 These two narrations contradict the narration that is used by Nawasibs, and proves that individuals such as Ja’far al-Kadhab are liars and deceivers. This narration’s serve as evidence that Jafar’s narration was wrong, since he was a puppet in the hands of the Abbasid rulers and wanted to divide the Shi’a.
  5. Imam al-Sajjad ((عليه السلام)) said:

    “The light of the Imam in the hearts of the faithful is more brilliant than that of the brilliant day star.”
    Al-Kafi, vol. 1, p. 276.

  6. Imam al-Sajjad ((عليه السلام)) said: “The light of the Imam in the hearts of the faithful is more brilliant than that of the brilliant day star.” Al-Kafi, vol. 1, p. 276.
  7. I can see assumptions all over this one. a) Satan was a Jinn-e-Kamil. b) He was very near to God. These are totally wrong. If he would have attained the "Kamal" (Perfection), he would have not made the mistake of disobeying God's command. Does worship (a mere exercise) has anything to do with purification? Munafiqeen worship throughout their lives, Khawarij were famous for their abundance of prayers & fastings. Why God has allowed Prophets & Imams to guide us? Is it like giving an exam? Where are the examiner? Are there angels watching on you that if you tried to cheat, they will through you out of the examination hall? So if this life is test, but test of what? a) Are you true in your words or not. Do you really mean what you testify? "O God! we worship only you" Are you really true in this statement? "There is no one worthy of worship except Allah", Do we remained steadfast with this claim? b) There may be different ways to do an act. Which one of us has performed act in a best manner & Which one of us has performed best of the deeds! You know most of the misguided ones assumes themselves as they are the guided ones. No body wants misguidance here. Everyone wants guidance whether it is guidance from Truth Almighty or guidance from Falsehood (Shaytan). And it has been clearly pointed out by God that look Satan is your clear enemy! so take him as your enemy. Don't take him as your guide. He has provided the door of repentance for everyone to return to Him, to take back Him as guide whenever one realizes that he has wronged himself. So Hurr (عليه السلام) was from among the forces of Yazid before the night of Ashura. He realized, repented and finally taken God as his guide by strongly grasping the urwatul wuthqa. I don't want to get involved in that story. بَلِ اللّهُ يُزَكِّي مَن يَشَاء If you just focus on the outcome, you will get the guidance. What happened in the end? God chosed him & taught Adam (عليه السلام) the words, for repentance, guided him. 20:121 Then they both ate of it, so their evil inclinations became manifest to them, and they both began to cover themselves with leaves of the garden, and Adam disobeyed his Lord, so his life became evil (to him). 20:122 Then his Lord chose him, so He turned to him and guided (him) 2:37 Thereupon Adam received words [of guidance] from his Sustainer, and He accepted his repentance: for, verily, He alone is the-Acceptor of Repentance, the Dispenser of Grace. What is the purpose of creating mankind? To worship God in true letter & spirit. Satan (every lie & every falsehood) fits into the purpose of creation for two main reasons: a) To provide for mankind teachings, guidance & repentance as you have seen from the case of Prophet Adam (عليه السلام). b) The following verses as shared by brother earlier on this thread. We would not know whether we are truthful or not, if there is no Satan.
  8. Why we only need to follow A Mujtahid? Why not we follow many mujtahideen at the same time? Or why not we take opinions from many scholars & act on the one which looks good to us?
  9. Perhaps you can explain to me the difference between "Taoubah" & "Toubatan Nasooha".
  10. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) grant us the toufeeq of "Toubatan Nasooha". ( تَوْبَةً نَصُوحًا)
  11. Stoning to death itself is another ijtihad. He deemed mut'ah as zina.
  12. Hadith of Sahih Muslim is quoted above Can you read his words: فَلَنْ أُوتَى بِرَجُلٍ نَكَحَ امْرَأَةً إِلَى أَجَلٍ إِلاَّ رَجَمْتُهُ بِالْحِجَارَةِ And any person would come to me with a marriage of appointed duration (Mut'a), I would stone him (to death). Both the texts are taken from your source i.e., https://muflihun.com/muslim/7/2801
  13. فَلَنْ أُوتَى بِرَجُلٍ نَكَحَ امْرَأَةً إِلَى أَجَلٍ إِلاَّ رَجَمْتُهُ بِالْحِجَارَةِ ‏ And any person would come to me with a marriage of appointed duration (Mut'a), I would stone him (to death).
  14. حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، وَابْنُ، بَشَّارٍ قَالَ ابْنُ الْمُثَنَّى حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ قَتَادَةَ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ، قَالَ كَانَ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ يَأْمُرُ بِالْمُتْعَةِ وَكَانَ ابْنُ الزُّبَيْرِ يَنْهَى عَنْهَا قَالَ فَذَكَرْتُ ذَلِكَ لِجَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ فَقَالَ عَلَى يَدَىَّ دَارَ الْحَدِيثُ تَمَتَّعْنَا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏ فَلَمَّا قَامَ عُمَرُ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ يُحِلُّ لِرَسُولِهِ مَا شَاءَ بِمَا شَاءَ وَإِنَّ الْقُرْآنَ قَدْ نَزَلَ مَنَازِلَهُ فَأَتِمُّوا الْحَجَّ وَالْعُمْرَةَ لِلَّهِ كَمَا أَمَرَكُمُ اللَّهُ وَأَبِتُّوا نِكَاحَ هَذِهِ النِّسَاءِ فَلَنْ أُوتَى بِرَجُلٍ نَكَحَ امْرَأَةً إِلَى أَجَلٍ إِلاَّ رَجَمْتُهُ بِالْحِجَارَةِ ‏.‏ This is the Arabic text of hadith, now see the english translation: Abu Nadra reported: Ibn'Abbas commanded the performance of Mut'a putting lhram for 'Umra during the months of Dhu'I-Hijja and after completing it. then putting on Ibrim for Hajj), but Ibn Zubair forbade to do it. I made a mention of it to Jabir b. Abdullih and he said: It is through me that this hadith has been circulated. We entered into the state of Ihram as Tamattu' with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. When 'Umar was Installed as Caliph, he said: Verily Allah made permissible for His Messenger ﷺ whatever He liked and as Re liked. And (every command) of the Holy Qur'an has been revealed for every occasion. So accomplish Hajj and Umra for Allah as Allah has commanded you; and confirm by (proper conditions) the marriage of those women (with whom you have performed Mut'a). And any person would come to me with a marriage of appointed duration (Mut'a), I would stone him (to death). Qatada narrated this hadith with the same chain of transmitters saying: (That 'Umar also said): Separate your Hajj from 'Umra, for that is the most complete Hajj, and complete your Umra. https://muflihun.com/muslim/7/2801 From a shia source: Abu Nadhra said: Ibn Abbas commanded to do Mut’a while Ibn Zubair forbade to do it. I mentioned this to Jabir Ibn Abdillah and he said: It is through me that this Hadith has been circulated. We did Mut’a (of Hajj and women) at the time of the Messenger of Allah. When Umar was installed as Caliph, he said: Verily Allah made permissible for his Messenger whatever He like and as He liked. And its command was revealed in Qur’an. Thus accomplish Hajj and Umra for Allah as Allah has commanded you, and confirm (by reverting to permanent marriage) the marriages of those women (with whom you have performed Mut’a). And any person would come to me with a marriage of appointed duration (i.e. Mut’a) I would stone him.
