  1. From a great Hadith in Bihar al-Anwar (V3,Ch14) Very clearly demonstrates the differences between Imamiyya and Bakrism.
  2. Dualism is basically the embodiment of gaslighting oneself. Creation is matter of fact subject to opposites (as the Qur'an clearly states, and in spiritual ways) however that is creation and not God, and not the greater reality beyond the Veil (al-Hijab). It should be mentioned though that knowledge (ilm and marifa) is not ignorance (jahl), and the defeat of dualism is not the appraisal of ignorance or of darkness. It is dispelling their illusions and delusions and freeing oneself from them.
  3. In a similar meaning however to what we see of our Imams referring to themselves as the "Face of God", or to which the concept of the "Hand of God" is indicative of divine decree, revelation and so forth. https://www.academia.edu/4377414/_prepubl_Seeking_the_Face_of_God_The_Safawid_ḥikmat_traditions_conceptualisation_of_walāya_takwīnīya By extension we obviously have concept of the Nur al-Muhammad or Muhammad Haqiqa, of which is all the Prophets but culminating in Prophet Muhammad (عليه السلام). These are, in Shi'i tradition, not speaking of things that are God but things that
  4. I've read in Baha'u'llah's writings that even he always referred to them as Ahl al-Bayan. For whatever reason it became typical to refer to them as "Babis", probably in the same way that Christians are called Christians. Baha'i's call followers of the Bab "Azalis" as a pejorative, of a similar notion to Christians calling us "Muhammadans"
  5. In truth you are inclined to take your own interpretation over mine which is derived from the Ahl al-Bayt's. You are not representative of the 'word of Allah' through taking things literally or out of context.
  6. Lol, Surah 75:20-22 (before the two ayahs you quoted) No Indeed! Rather you love this transitory life and forsake the Hereafter.
  7. Yes All-Seeing and All-Hearing are among the 99 names, unlike face and hand. All-Seeing and All-hearing however, as we know from Imam Ali, is not indicative of Allah being something that perceives things (as if there was somewhere for Allah to look, lol) but rather that he generates them, everything that ever was and will be.
  8. Surah 55:26-27 is the same meaning at 28:88. Surah 75:22-23 is referring to the theophanic nature of Jannah. Imam Ali says that even in Jannah you don't see Allah, be cause Allah cannot be seen.
  9. وَلَم يَكُن لَهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ wa-lam yakun lahū kufuwan ʾaḥad
  10. `Ali ibn Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn `Imran al-Daqqaq (may Allah be pleased with them) said: Muhammad ibn Abu `Abd Allah al-Kufi said: Muhammad ibn Isma`il al-Barmaki said: on the authority of al-Husan ibn al-Hasan, and al-Husayn ibn `Ali, on the authority of Salih ibn Abu Hammad, on the authority of Bakr ibn Salih, on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn Sa`id, on the authority of `Abd Allah in al-Mughayrah, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ziyad said: I heard Yunus ibn Zabyan say I entered in the presence of Abu `Abd Allah al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) and told him: Hisham ibn al-Hakam made a lon
  11. Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid (رضي الله عنه) said: Muhammad ibn al-Hasan alSaffar, on the authority of Sahl ibn Ziyad, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Isma`il ibn Bazi, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Zayd that I came to (`Ali) al-Rida (عليه السلام) asking him about Divine Unity, so he (عليه السلام) dictated to me: All praise be to Allah, the Originator, Producer, and Innovator [Mubtadi`] of all things from the beginning by His Power and Wisdom, not from anything that could invalidate His Invention, nor for nay wrong cause. He created whatever He wanted how He wanted, and He d
  12. OP never even quoted anything to demonstrate his claims, he just expects us to assume that his position is a hermeneutical default without first justifying it. For Allah's hand's the Qur'an only uses it as a metaphor for God's decree, covenant and by prophecy itself (as Jews believe that God stopped sending prophets at Malachi - aka "tied up"): Why do not the rabbis and the scribes forbid them from sinful speech and consuming illicit gains? Surely, evil is what they have been working. The Jews say, ‘Allah’s hand is tied up.’ Tied up be their hands, and cursed be they for what they s
  13. Yes it is impossible to talk about God in any literal manner because God is God. The idea of a 'personal relationship' is abdominal to us. But this doesn't mean that we're somehow distant from God, matter of fact the opposite, there is nothing closer to everything than Allah. As the famous Ayat in Surah Qaf says: "Certainly We have created man and We know to what his soul tempts him,and We are nearer to him than his jugular vein." (Surah 50:16), aka God is closer to us than we are to ourselves, how is that for profound?. As a Hadith in Kitab al-Kafi says: Ali ibn Ibrahim has n
  14. You are projecting 5th century Christian theology back onto Clements writings which is dishonest and bad interpretation of his writings. None of what you have quoted even remotely implies what you claim it says. If you confronted Clement and told him what you are telling me, he would look at you like you punched him in the face or something. He would have no idea what you're going on, as with the rest of the earliest "Christian" writers and authors.
