  1. "Shias killed Imam Hussain" sounds similar to the reasoning of Yazid's daddy: "Ali killed Ammar ibn Yasir by bringing him to Siffin".
  2. The defence of the First in this thread reminds me of the non Imami interpretation of Surah Abasa. "Oh, it's clear from the verses that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) frowned at the blind man, and he was reprimanded by Allah (nauzubillah min zalik)" *suggest that it was actually a certain member of Banu Umayya who frowned and got schooled by the Almighty* "How dare you say such things about the respected sahaba? Repent and seek forgiveness, you heathens!" There was another verse that I can't recall; something about the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) school
  3. My two cents: I'm against it. If he's impeached, then future Americans will be able to claim the moral high ground; that they at least successfully impeached him. They'll forget that most Americans stood on his side and let him do his thing.
  4. Because the sources used to derive this incident are not strong. That being said, it's not impossible that it happened. There is no scholarly consensus as far as I know. Whether it's true or not, doesn't take away from the high station of Rasulallah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), nor does it exempt his enemies for the various crimes they committed.
  5. On the contrary, it is very much possible. Remember the Quranic verses we use about the wives and sons of Nuh ((عليه السلام)) and Lut ((عليه السلام))? They apply here as well. The Ismaili offshoot didn't occur in in Imam Ali Reza's ((عليه السلام)) time. Hazrat Ismail ((عليه السلام)) was the eldest son of Imam Jafar ((عليه السلام)); the Imam loved his son very much. He was quite knowledgeable and pious, and people started assuming that he might be the next Imam, even though the Imam hadn't said anything in this regard at that time. Then, he passed away in the Imam's lifetime; he repea
  6. I can predict @Nightclaw's reply to this: "Imam Dhahabi has called those narrations about Abu Bakr burning ahadith non authentic!"
  7. I may be wrong, but from what I've seen, the Arbaeen walk doesn't have a direct basis in traditions with strong chains. Again, someone please correct me if I'm wrong. This comes under the heading of acts in 'urf that are synonymous with the commemorating of Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام)) and his companions, and I personally support it wholeheartedly.
  8. I interpreted this differently. I think what he's saying is, that as individuals, we can't expect to know the absolute truth of Islam, the absolute Sirat e Mustaqeem. It exists somewhere, sure, but do we know it absolutely, without question? I think not. You'll find two Twelvers differing, two Salafis differering, even two Barelvis differing among themselves. That's why I think, that we should engage in discussions and debates with the intention that we aren't purely, 100% right. I think we should open up our minds and read the Quran, ahadith, and listen to knowledgeable scholars. We should al
  9. http://alhaydari.com/en/2020/10/18/quran-and-the-logic-of-absolute-denial-of-others/ @Nightclaw thoughts? @Syed Ali Mehdi Shah Naqviyou might want to take a look at this too. I think given your stance on taqleed, you might actually agree with a few of Ayatollah Haydari's views on different topics.
  10. Another misconception: taqiyyah. This is perhaps the most widely misunderstood and misused concept of Islam, and its not restricted to Twelvers.
  11. Judging from Engineer Mirza's videos, the scholarly opinion in sunni circles is pretty much this. The original Quran had more Ayahs than the current one; a lot of ayats became mansukh and they were deleted from the final version before the revelation of 5:3. @Nightclaw what is the view of salafi scholars? Albani et tal?
  12. There is a wikipedia article about an extinct shia sect: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghurabiya It seems they had this belief.
  13. There is a case for intangible mahr; the groom can teach the bride a valuable skill, as in a skill or a craft that can be used to earn. As per marja's rulings, almost all of them say that the Quranic-verse mahr is invalid.
