  1. Dr. Chris Hewer interviewed by Ahlulbayt TV on Imam Mahdi(عليه السلام) (The Twelth Imam)
  2. Another video from Dr. Hewer on Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) and how he learned about Imam Hussain(عليه السلام)
  3. The following passage is taken from Muhammad Muhammadi Rayshari's "Chronicles of the Martydom of Imam Husayn" (ICAS Press) under Part 4: Azadari and Weeping for Imam Al-Husayn(a) section 1.1 Reciters of Elegies for Imam Husayn(a) before the event of Karbala (page 87, Hardcover):
  4. Salaams I thought I'd share this lecture by Dr. Chris Hewer (A Christian) on Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) especially for this month of Muharram, which I feel respects Imam Hussain(عليه السلام) and his marytrdom. He has other lectures of course, but this talk focuses more on the aspect of martyrdom between the faiths that serve to broaden understanding. I thought this would be helpful for those who identify as Christians to be able to relate.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. Subhanallah thank you for your words of encouragement and for the link to Dr. Nakshawani on Christmas. Jazak'Allah Khaire.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
