  1. I took the vaccine today. Inshallah in 21 days I'm gonna get the 2nd dosis.
  2. Actually with all due respect, there's a mistake in the first link. You said the word "imam" appears in 8 verses, but if you see the last verse, it says "amaamah" or "أَمَامَهُ" which means "in front of him/ahead of him/to continue" and has nothing to do with imam, a'imma or imamah in general. Please be careful when you want to provide accurate information, specially when you're dealing with the Qur'an. The case still stands. The words "imam-إمام" in singular and "a'imma-أَئمة" in plural combined appear in 12 and not in 13 verses. So... is twelver Imamate actually disproved ?
  3. Salaam and Eid Mubarak to all, The Holy Qur'an actually speaks of sacrificing and it's purpose, mentionned conveniently in suratul Hajj (verses 36-37): وَالبُدنَ جَعَلناها لَكُم مِن شَعائِرِ اللَّهِ لَكُم فيها خَيرٌ ۖ فَاذكُرُوا اسمَ اللَّهِ عَلَيها صَوافَّ ۖ فَإِذا وَجَبَت جُنوبُها فَكُلوا مِنها وَأَطعِمُوا القانِعَ وَالمُعتَرَّ ۚ كَذٰلِكَ سَخَّرناها لَكُم لَعَلَّكُم تَشكُرونَ We have appointed for you the [sacrificial] camels as one of Allah’s sacraments. There is good for you in them. So mention the Name of Allah over them as they stand. And when they have fallen on their flanks, eat from them, and feed the self-contained needy and the mendicant. Thus have We disposed them for your benefit so that you may give thanks. لَن يَنالَ اللَّهَ لُحومُها وَلا دِماؤُها وَلٰكِن يَنالُهُ التَّقوىٰ مِنكُم ۚ كَذٰلِكَ سَخَّرَها لَكُم لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلىٰ ما هَداكُم ۗ وَبَشِّرِ المُحسِنينَ It is not their flesh or their blood that reaches Allah. Rather it is your Godwariness (piety) that reaches Him. Thus has He disposed them for your benefit so that you may magnify Allah for His guiding you. And give good news to the virtuous. As for the sacrifice of Ibrahim (عليه السلام), I'm not really an expert and I don't want to say things that I have no knowledge of, but I think it was probably a test from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to see if Ibrahim (عليه السلام) was willing to do such thing out of his love and obedience of his Lord. By the way, didn't you ask the exact same question last Eid ?
  4. Salaam, I have the impression that according to what you're saying, every single male descendant of Fatima (عليها السلام) is at such a level where saying something negative about them becomes almost kufr, in the same way how Sunnis say that saying something negative about any of the Sahabas is kufr and unimanigable. Logically speaking, just because someone descends from Fatima (عليها السلام) doesn't mean that they automatically are great and deserve an "alaihi assalam". Yes, the Qur'an told us that the Ahlulbayt are pure, but according to our (12er) traditions this doesn't only apply to the 5, but also to the 9 imams from the lineage of Imam Hussain (peace be upon them all). Now from what I've learned, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but according to your traditions (Zaidi), the verse only applies to the 5, so any descendant of either Imam Hassan or Hussain (عليهما السلام) isn't "tahir/infallible", so logically speaking you can't tell us "How dare you insult this particular son of Al-Zahra ?" since their lives have to be studied and if they did good, then good for them, but if they did bad, then too bad for them. Now I may get it that you'll tell me that you already told me the requisites for someone to be a (Zaidi) imam, how they not only had to be a descendant, but also just, knowledgeable, etc... But from what you're saying, you're making it look like they were so great only because they descended from Fatima (عليها السلام). If that were the case, then we should also be prasing the son of Hazrat Nuh (عليه السلام) and Qabil, since they were sons of prophets, and you consider them to be higher than Fatima (عليها السلام). Not every member of the Prophetic Household was good, the same way not every sahabi was good. They are only honorific titles and positions, but their actions and way of life are far more important. Also a side note for this, but the man from the video is Allahyari, who is basically a "clown" and a shame for our madhab. He goes with the likes of Yasser al-Habeeb, Tawhidi, etc... I wouldn't recommend watching their videos.
  5. Their holy book after the Qur'an is Minhaj as-Sunah al-UmawiyyaWOOPS I mean al-Nabawiyya (منهاج السنة النبوية) by 'Aduwwul IslamWOOPS again I mean "Shaykhul Islam" Ibn Taymiyyah.
  6. Thanks brother, I still have some questions left unanswered, I don't know if you perhaps know the answer:
  7. Can I please ask the brothers to stop "debating" in this chat ? Other chats called "Zaidi-Twelve debate 1 and 2" have been created for this purpose. I created this chat for the sole purpose of our Zaidi brothers answering questions regarding their faith, and not justifying them, hence engaging in debate.
  8. I can't really tell, because there are some mangas where both male and female characters are portrayed modestly. Otherwise, I believe it would be haram, if it plagues your mind and behaviour with sexual thoughts and illicit acts. But I think it's better if you ask someone more knowledgeable.
  9. Actually, it does. We call that Da'wah. I'm sure you've seen many videos where many (mostly Sunni) Muslims "give pamphlets and food and extra Qur'ans and short Islamic books to hand out in public", whether in the USA or in Europe. I'm not really sure if it is wajib for us Muslims to do Da'wah (I'm sure it's highly recommended), but keep in mind that today everything is so easily accessible. Practically every single non-Muslim can personally research about Islam, and many people convert without us Muslims even doing Da'wah. But idk, that's just my opinion.
  10. I don't think there's anything wrong with Manga and Anime per se, it's just like any other cartoon; but my problem with many Mangas/Animes is the oversexualization of female characters (focus on large breasts and bottom). I'm serious, many times I watch some Anime scenes and it's just ridiculous how sexualized the characters are. I'm sure some of you will agree.
  11. I have some other questions: 1- How do you view Abdullah, Aminah, Abu Talib and the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم) ancestors ? Were they monotheistic or pagans ? 2- Do you also say that Azar was not Ibrahim's (عليه السلام) real father ? 3- These will be short questions about salah: a. Do you fold the hands ? b. Do you prostrate on a turbah ? c. Is your adhan the same as ours ? d. Are you allowed to do qunoot during the 2nd rak'ah ? e. How do you end your salah ? f. What is your view concerning praying behind someone who isn't Zaidi ? 4. The classic question: do you wash or wipe the feet during wudoo ? 5. And finally, how is Khums in Zaidism ?
  12. Well keep in mind that even though these attributes are in masculine, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) doesn't have a gender. But I have an interesting video that may interest you, in regards to what you're saying. He speaks about the duality of genders and how they are reflected by the attributes of Jalal and Jamal (kind of a yin-yang as you said):
  13. I have some other questions: 1- What are your views concerning the graves/mausoleums/resting places of the Prophets, Imams and companions ? Is it similar to the 12er view where one can decorate them, respect them, do ziyarat, kiss them ? Or is it more Salafi where it's all bid'ah and doing so would be considered shirk ? Do you believe that you'll get some kind of rewards and hasanat if you visit their graves in Medina, Kadhimiyya, Samarra and Mashad ? 2- What are your opinions regarding our (12er) Imams that you don't consider them to be Imams ? Do you view them with high regards and respect them, the same way we do with Zaid (رضي الله عنه) for example ? Do you just see them as scholars ? Or do you simply consider them to be normal sayyed Muslims ?
  14. Salaam, Both Ar-Rahman الرحمن and Ar-Raheem الرحيم are masculine. The feminine would be Ar-Rahmana الرحمانة and Ar-Raheema الرحيمة.
  15. An even better question: would Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) leave the people of Earth without a living Imam/Hujjah ? In other words: is it logical that right now, in the 21st century, there isn't an Imam living among us ?
