  1. Was there a distinction between the two tribes at the time of Hashim's marriage to Salma bint Amr?
  2. As far as I know, this is unknowable ghayb stuff. I have heard of acquaintances of mine who have made such oaths to "satanic" entities. Theoretically speaking, if they were to convert to Islam after having done so, their debt with God would be settled unquestionably and since hell is a punishment it's my professional opinion (as an occultist, not a mufti) that it would be impermissible for them to go to hell for that reason. However it's very possible that they might retain some kind of debt to the entities with which they struck that kind of debt in the same sense that it's not legally permis
  3.

  5. It also looks like I'm unable to edit the post (maybe because it hasn't been approved?) but I'm also very interested in hearing any other Shi'a criticisms of Sunni seerahs, that is, ones that don't strictly have to do with Abu Bakr and 'Umar.
  6. Reading Sunni seerahs, I get sort of the impression that there was this sort of trio of the Prophet*, Abu Bakr, and 'Umar , completely inseparable. My question is to what degree is this characterisation accepted or rejected by Shi'as? Are there any good criticisms of this portrayal from a Shi'a perspective? Also, on a slightly tangential note, does anyone recommend any good Shi'a seerahs?
  7. I was hoping for maybe an in-depth reading material or something.
  8. All of these terms refer to esoteric knowledge, who can help me understand the difference?
