  1. Salaam, I've read all over the news that there's been a strong eathquake today in Afghanistan, with more than 900 who passed away and over 1500 injured. I don't know if this has already been posted here, but I just wanted to let you guys know. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) have mercy on these souls, grant them Jannatul Firdaus and give their families and friends patience, ameen. Please recite al-Fatiha for the marhoomeen and the people of Afghanistan, as well as everyone in need all over the world .
  2. Oh btw I just realized that Ithink I made a mistake here, it was Abu Jahl who used to call himself Abal Hakam, not Abu Lahab. Woopsie! (someone correct me if I'm wrong)
  3. This topic seems to have diverged from the original question, hehe. Although I should say, Abu Talib and Abu Lulu are not real "names" per se? They're more like epithets/titles/descriptives names, if you know what I mean, since Abu Talib and Abu Lulu literally mean "Father of Talib" and "Father of Lulu" respectively, which is why I find it a bit weird to name a child "Abu Talib" or any "Abu Fulan" to be more specific, since technically they're not the fathers of anyone . Many historical personnalities have these kunyas however, and sometimes they're far more popular than their real names, here are some examples: - Abal Qasim --> Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) -Abu Lahab (he called himself Abu al-Hakam) --> 'Abd al-'Uzza bin Abd al-Muttalib (may he be cursed) -Abi Talib --> 'Abd Manaf bin Abd al-Muttalib (peace be upon him) -Abu Sufyan --> Sakhr ibn Harb ibn Umayya (may he be cursed) -Abu Muhammad and Aba 'Abdillah --> respective kunyas for Imams Hassan and Hussain (peace be upon them both) One exception however I think is Abu Bakr (which by the way, the 1st caliph's real name is 'Abdullah ibn Abi Quhafah), this name is far too popular, sometimes abbreviated as Aboubakr. But I haven't seen anyone named "Abu Something" other than Bakr (as a real first name), but maybe this is just me?
  4. Hi! Reciting the shahadah is the bare minimum for one to be considered muslim, irrespective of denomination. So it is very much important for Shias to be able to recite it.
  5. It seems this discussion about the permissibility of mut'ah will never end. So many threads were created, and the same arguments are always brought. Truly an example of DISagreeing to disagree. But this is just my opinion.
  6. @Ali bin Hussein You're more than welcome dear brother. I myself have also learned a lot about the Zaid madhab, so we both have learned here. What I liked about this debate is that it was an honest and civil discussion, with points being brought up by both groups in order to point their claims. I hope the reader can learn as well from our conversation. Take care, wassalaam !
  7. I think he may be asking about the current Hashemite kingdom of Jordan, if the ruling family are truly descendants from Imam Hassan (عليه السلام), as they claim.
  8. Apparently many people here won't drink from the rivers of wine in Jannah.
  9. Wa alakum as-salaam, The video is not in Arabic, it's in Urdu I believe. However, it seems to talk about the permissibility of saying "Ashadu anna 'Aliyyan waliyyullah" in the tashahud. In minute 1:05 it does say in Arabic: Question: A woman used to say for years in her prayers during the tashahud: "Ahshadu an la ilaha ilallah, wa ashadu anna Muhammadan rasulullah, wa 'Aliyyan waliyyullah", so what's the ruling regarding her prayers ? Answer: If [she used to say this] out of inculpable ignorance, she doesn't need to repeat them; but if it was out of culpable ignorance, she has to repeat the prayers based on obligatory precaution. So it seems it's not allowed to say it, according to Sayyid al-Sistani. By the way, inculpable ignorance is when someone has a valid excuse for not knowing. Someone please correct me if I translated that part wrong.
  10. Wa alaikum as-salaam, I was just trying to show that you can't rush to a misunderstanding when one of the Shias give for example an attribute to Imam Mahdi (atf) and apparently sounds like shirk since only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has that attribute. And I didn't misunderstand the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Again, I was using the same logic that you can't immediatly think of shirk when we say that a member of the Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them) "claims" divinity. Yes, the hadith from Bukhari is well explained (that is, for al-Mahi and al-Hashir, since in the Arabic text it doesn't say that by al-'Aqib he means that he's the last prophet, it only says so in the English text). I'm just saying that don't think that when a person for example says that he is the First and the Last, he's claiming to be on the same level of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). If that person explains what he means by First and Last, then it's ok. But even if he doesn't explain what he means, it's still ok because you don't know what he means by that, you don't know what his intention was, so you can't conclude that it's shirk or kufr. I believe the brother explained to you very well what he was trying to say, and with all honesty you're simply trying to exagerate because it doesn't go along with your views. Maybe as you said the same situation in the hadith of Biharul Anwar* happened here, where the brother may have said something that wasn't clear-cut on the onset (for you), hence resulting in you having a similar kind of reaction. Thank you. I'm sorry to disappoint. Thanks again . I hope these surprises are meant in the good sense. Take care too.
  11. You know, some people really should understand some concepts regarding the Imams and avoid having a false impression that the attributes they have equate to shirk, kufr, bid'ah, etc... This reminds me of a person that cherry picked this hadith from Biharul Anwar: http://shiaonlinelibrary.com/الكتب/1473_بحار-الأنوار-العلامة-المجلسي-ج-٤٢/الصفحة_191 روي أن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام كان قاعدا في المسجد وعنده جماعة من أصحابه، فقالوا له: حدثنا يا أمير المؤمنين، فقال لهم: ويحكم إن كلامي صعب مستصعب لا يعقله إلا العالمون، قالوا: لا بد من أن تحدثنا، قال: قوموا بنا فدخل الدار فقال: أنا الذي علوت فقهرت، أنا الذي أحيي وأميت، أنا الأول والآخر والظاهر والباطن It was narrated that the Commander of the Faithful, peace be upon him, was sitting in the mosque with a group of his companions, and they said to him: Tell us something, O Commander of the Faithful. He said: I am the one who rose and subsided, I am the one who gives life and causes death, I am the First and the Last, the Apparent and the Hidden. How can he say this ? This is KUFR ! Subhanallah, you only have to continue reading the hadith: فغضبوا وقالوا: كفر! وقاموا، فقال علي عليه السلام للباب: يا باب استمسك عليهم، فاستمسك عليهم الباب، فقال: ألم أقل لكم: إن كلامي صعب مستصعب لا يعقله إلا العالمون؟ تعالوا أفسر لكم، أما قولي: أنا الذي علوت فقهرت فأنا الذي علوتكم بهذا السيف فقهرتكم حتى آمنتم بالله ورسوله، وأما قولي: أنا أحيي وأميت فأنا أحيي السنة وأميت البدعة، وأما قولي: أنا الأول فأنا أول من آمن بالله وأسلم وأما قولي: أنا الآخر فأنا آخر من سجى على النبي صلى الله عليه وآله ثوبه ودفنه، وأما قولي: أنا الظاهر والباطن فأنا عندي علم الظاهر والباطن، قالوا: فرجت عنا فرج الله عنك. They got angry and said: KUFR! And they stood up, and Ali, peace be upon him, said to the door: O door, hold on to them, so the door held on to them, and he said: Did I not tell you: My words are difficult and difficult, and only the knowledgeable can comprehend them? Come, I will explain to you, as for my saying: I am the one who rose and subsided, [that means that] I am the one who raised you with this sword, and I defeated you until you believed in God and His Messenger. And as for my saying: I revive and kill, I revive the Sunnah and kill innovation, and as for my saying: I am the first, I am the first to believe in God and embrace Islam, and as for my saying: I am the last, I am the last one who shrouded the Prophet, may God bless him and his family, with his clothing and burial. As for my saying: I am the apparent and the hidden, then I have the knowledge of the outward and inward. They said: You explained it to us, God bless you. I can also cherry pick some Sunni hadiths that apparently promote shirk and kufr, why don't you take a look: https://sunnah.com/bukhari:3532 قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ لِي خَمْسَةُ أَسْمَاءٍ أَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ، وَأَحْمَدُ، وَأَنَا الْمَاحِي الَّذِي يَمْحُو اللَّهُ بِي الْكُفْرَ، وَأَنَا الْحَاشِرُ الَّذِي يُحْشَرُ النَّاسُ عَلَى قَدَمِي، وَأَنَا الْعَاقِبُ ‏"‏‏.‏ Here the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) says that he has 5 names: Muhammad, Ahmad, al-Mahi, al-Hashir and al-'Aqib. So he is al-Mahi, while I thought that only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can truly erase sins and disbelief ? So he is al-Hashir, while I thought that only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can raise and gather the dead ? So he is al-'Aqib, while I thought that only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the last and the one who'll remain forever ? But of course I'm not going to say any of that, because I know that this hadith has been explained, the same way the hadith from Biharul Anwar has been explained, and that these attributes are not of the same level of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I wish you could also do the same.
  12. I think these are the same: In Arabic it's Ya hujjat Allahi shakwanah ilaik, adrikna adrikna labaika labaik.
  13. I've also heard that in fact he was a good guy and was willing to help the Ahlulbayt, that's why the Umayyids and their allies quickly got rid of him, resulting in his reign being extremely short (2-4 months). But I don't know if this is acurrate.
