  1. For unmarried women and men, I am aware that it is 100 flogs. But in regard to the stoning for extra-marital adultery, I believe that Imam Khomeini changed it from stoning as he deemed it to be harmful to the image of Islam and a punishment of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) time. What was it replaced by?
  2. Some say that it was passed down to Imam Mahdi (AJ), but I cannot find any sources for that claim?
  3. Allah (SW) made it that 4 witnesses are required so that women would not be falsely punished. The ahadith on the execution of adulterers (whether male or female) are basically mutawatir (strong with multiple chains) in both Sunni and Shia books so there is no conflict there. For 24:2 that is the punishment for unmarried people who fornicate whilst death is for those who are married yet decide to engage in adultery. This is because adultery whilst married can emotionally devastate a spouse. Moreover, I'm not sure about that hadith as it seems quite far fetched.
  4. You could do the same thing with regular nikah (marriage). What she's doing is halal, however it's nothing particular to mut'ah marriage specifically.
  5. Which war in particular are you speaking about? Moreover, Abu Bakr was not alive at the time of Imam Hussein and Shahrbanu (the Persian princess). Are you referring to Muhammad Ibn Abu Bakr? Because according to some reports Shahrbanu's sister married him.
  6. Update: You guys were right, it truly was a lost cause. He would never pay attention to any of my claims and constantly bounce from topic to topic, and every time I'd asked him "are you convinced," he'd just say yes and move to the next topic when he truly wasn't convinced. I told him that he wasn't worth my time, and that he truly wasn't interested in religion or spirituality let alone Islam. May Allah (SW) guide him. Hopefully he's just going through his "edgy atheist" teenage phase...
  7. While Khomayni is speaking about the types of taqqiyah he explains the “Mudaratiyah taqqiyah” and says وهو تحبيب المخالفين وجر مودتهم من غير خوف ضرر كما في التقية خوفا It is the act of making those who differ with us – Ahlul sunnah – love us and to lure them by friendliness in a situation where there is no fear of harm or damage -to the shia- unlike the taqqiyah of fear. Source: “Al Rasael” 2/174 The Nawasib often quote this from our great scholar “Ayatollah Khomenei” to make it seem as if we are deceptive liars. However these Nawasib typically either use faulty translations or take things out of context to make us look bad. So anyways, is there any truth to this? Can we really lie whenever we want in front of Sunnis?
  8. On Reddit, I’ve come across a self-proclaimed “ex-Muslim,” who even happens to be an Iraqi Shia residing in the USA. Most of his claims are based on misinterpretations of the Quran, and I have duly refuted them. But he seems to know nothing about Shiism other than “some guy named Ali wanted to be leader.” (Astaghfirallah, his words not mine) Meaning that his “reasons” for leaving Islam had nothing to do with the Jaafari school of thought and had to do with Islam in general. I’ve told him that there is a tremendous difference between Shiism and Sunnism, but how can I bring him back to the deen without overwhelming him? I’ve shown him some of the scientific miracles in the Quran, but he merely shrugs them off. Any advice?
  9. I know he was and I know about the many atrocities that he (LA) committed, but that doesn’t excuse working together with the kuffar in order to get back at him. (LA) If the crusaders were successful, Al Quds would be in the hands of the Christians and it would be due to the actions of the Shia Muslims. Do you have any evidence by the way, brother?
  10. Salam Alaykum brothers and sisters! A very common Nasibi allegation that I’ve been hearing quite often for some time, is that the Shia Muslims of the Medieval period conspired with the Crusaders against Saladin (LA) and the Ottoman Empire? Is this allegation truthful, if so why? Or is this just another Nasibi lie! Please answer with an explanation and preferably with some evidence. JazakAllahu khayran.
