  1. Definitely a great listen for those who don't know how Prophet Isa(عليه السلام) is presented in the Bible, and I recommend listening to all his lectures in this series. Quite interesting and very informative.
  2. Salaams In the tafsir workshop I participated in a couple years ago I recall the Sheikh telling us on the Day of Judgement Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) showing us the Truth of our actions and their consequences both in the physical and spiritual. That Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will show us and reveal to us the Truth is the interaction I've interpreted as communication.
  3. Subhanallah thank you for that explanation which really makes me appreciate the title given to Imam Mahdi(atf) by Ayatollah Bahjat(May Allah be pleased him). What an insightful concept to think about!
  4. Salam brothers and sisters I was reading some passages from website that holds many of Grand Ayatollah Bahjat's writings and read the following on Imam Mahdi(atf) and I saw that he described the Imam of our Time (May Allah hasten his return) as "Commander of the Bees". Does anyone know why the Imam is given this description or the meaning behind it. I find it very curious. Subhanallah thank you for your time.
  5. Assalaamu alaikum I've heard that one of the signs of the hour will be that the Qur'an will vanish - or rather the Qur'anic verses will vanish in one night. I've heard this from many Sunni scholars (ie Dr. yasir Qadhi) quoting some hadiths and personalities such as ibn Taymiyyah. I can't really seem to find any Shia sources or hadiths regarding the idea of the Qur'an will one day completely vanish. Has any of the Imams(عليه السلام) had anything to say on this, does anyone know?
  6. Assalaamu alaykum I came across this argument recently - popped up on my youtube feed that Dan Gibson has a video on his conclusions that Petra is actually Mecca which itself was interesting, however the whole framework of his argument leads one away from the Qur'an. I found this video that uses the Qur'an to debunk Dan Gibson's arguments. it was simply amazing to watch and learn.
  7. All your responses to my question means so much! Thank you all of you! Alhamdulilah. It makes me feel less alone and knowing that others care is important. Its good to see things from another perspective as well, which helps in understanding my relations with family better Mashallah!
  8. Shukran Revert1963 for your very thoughtful response. The idea of going to Karbala during the holiday is interesting. I hope to go soon sometime, Insha'Allah.
  9. Subhanallah thank you for your words of encouragement and for the link to Dr. Nakshawani on Christmas. Jazak'Allah Khaire.
  10. Perhaps this Press Release back in June 2021 hints at the reason for that particular channel Ahlulbayt TV being terminated (it is listed as one of the sites): US closures of Shia Islamic websites
  11. Ok I am glad it's not just myself that is experiencing this. Although I wonder why it has been terminated? It's been an amazing source of information/education for me and for countless others i would imagine. I hope it comes back Insha'Allah Thank you for posting.
  12. Assalaamu alaikum I've been in the process of converting to Islam, although my family is Christian, my mother & father, and my brothers and sisters. Last year was my first year not celebrating Christmas. I've been asked this year to attend Christmas (its like they don't want to accept the fact I am Muslim) This year my siblings want to pitch in and get my parents a Christmas gift (that is the gift lends itself to the Christmas season) and they are asking me to participate. How can I best deal with this situation? Has anyone else - convert/revert, dealt with this issue or something similar?
  13. Assalaamu alaikum Just asking in general - has Ahlulbayt TV on youtube been terminated? It seems, on my end anyways, I can not access the channel. I had just watched a video earlier in the day and now I can't access that video (It was on Lady Zainab(as)) Anyone have any idea of why? It's been one of my favorite youtube channels.
  14. Assalaamu alaykum, Thank you for the link to this article. I find it oddly weird that the source that is "Christoph Luxenberg" is a pseudonym. We don't know who actually wrote the article, nor their actual credentials, but i notice anti-Islamic organizations like CIRA and Jay Smith are picking up on this and running with it like crazy.
  15. The lives of the Imams and the Fourteen Infallibles(عليه السلام) are critically vital in understanding Wilayah and the Leadership appointed by Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)
