  1. Do you think subconsciously people know Allah is behind this, including al-Husayn AS, I used to be on the same boat as you but I’ve accepted it as a genuine expression for Imam Al Husayn to intercede subconsciously from Allah if that makes sense?
  2. The verse 9:40 that Sunnis use to justify taking Abu Bakr to the cave is a strange one, why? The verse address and gives tranquility to the Prophet only ”And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him” Now in 9:26 is another situation in which the Prophet and the Believers was in a threatening situation “Then Allah sent down His tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers” In this case tranquility was sent upon the Prophet AND the believers. Similarly in Surah 48 ayah 26 “But Allah sent down His tranquillity upon His Messenger and upon the believers ” Once again referencing both the Prophet AND the believers Amongst the Meccans. Now we can see that when the Prophet is mentioned with true believers in the Qur’an at threatening situations Allah bestows tranquility to both, so why did Prophet Mohammed only receive tranquility in verse 9:40? One for you guys to figure out.
  3. I think this is the main stream Shi’a view. Anyways the hadith by Abu Huraira in that Allah created Prophet Adam in his own image is very interesting to say the least, in the Sunni aqeedah, what does “his own image” mean? Another complex issue is let’s suppose the attribution of a shin or a hand is attributed to him, how did these come about, did he create them himself? <- This is the part I’m confused on.
  4. Is anyone here a Sunni to Shi’a revert, if so I have a few questions? 1)How did your family respond to the news of your new beliefs, and were your family, orthodox, moderately practicing or liberal? 2) Are you planning on marrying a Shi’a in the future, if not (assuming you’re not revealing it to your family) how will you deal with the conflicting beliefs? 3) Have you come to your extended family, how did they take the news?
  5. I second this, Bahrainis and Qatifis are very practicing.
  6. I suggest you give this thread a read on why Islam is the religion of choice for us.
  7. Imho the general Muslim population is decreasing, maybe not officially but slowly people are sadly becoming less religious.
  8. Do we narrations of anyone doing sajda to Prophet Mohammed (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)?
  9. i was wondering, do you guys always check the ingredients, honestly I just stick to halal shops and stuff that is suitable for vegetarians, sometimes I don’t even trust that, because of this I’ve stopped eating a lot of stuff, atleast I’ve gone healthy
  10. Not really, the Qur’an states Prophet Mohammed SAWW is nothing original amongst the messengers before him, it’s just he is the final messenger of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)
  11. The more I look into the more stranger and unorthodox my opinion becomes. Now, I’m sure as Shi’as we have an opinion on Saddam for obvious reasons, however, the Iran-Iraq war is a tricky topic for me. On paper it does look like Saddam started, however as a leader of Iraq, I can see why he thought of provoking a war with Iran, especially if you consider that Saddam was not too hostile with Khomeini initially something Khomeini did not reciprocate. I think Khomeini did have plans to go for Iraq, before 1980s there was a lot of things going on the border with Iranian side of the border, Saddam of course wanted to show the might of Iraq and protect its sovereignty from Iran aswell as capture a key oil producing region, Khuzestan. Now in Saddams mind he could not risk rebellion from Iraqi supporting Khomeini, and he also thought that he army was well equipped to deal with the threat of Khomeini, he probably thought it was going to be a walk in the park, especially during the early stages. Anyways aside from this I’m curious to hear your opinions on this war? Ultimately I think it was useless, and in the long term a caused of trouble for both side countries. It wasn’t just a Shia - Sunni war, it was regional supremacy.
  12. 3) That doesn’t explain why the Shi’a Imams had known secret societies, and why they differed from the Sunni socieities I don’t see how it’s possible to fabricate 250+ years of history. I definitely do think there were Shi’a societies, why did the Imams not disassociate or call them heretics openly? The only case I can think of is of Zurara
  13. Thanks for all the replies, why don’t you guys have an ID verification or even Voice verification, just a simple Hi I’m Labbayka in a Male voice can get you verified kind of thing.
