  1. Thank you for the translation. I love it. May Allah bless you.
  2. Salam. I have been searching for writers who would give me the Turkish rights of their books with no royalty/money in return. Because I need some funding for my other Islamic services, I thought maybe, publishing books might bring me some income. So, I have contacted shia muslim writers online. And one sheikh responded positively. And I welcomed him in Istanbul a few days ago. I won't name him for his privacy but I need to say here that it was such a blessing for me. He was on his way to Karbala with his family and just wanted to meet me here. He was always cheerful and encouraging. I liked the way he was always thinking about Allah and the servitude to Islam. I like how he joined congregational prayers in sunni mosques. And I witnessed he speaks at least four languages. He would do the chores on his own, not letting his family or students or me do the job for him. He would not waste their money. He would walk the not long distances even though I offered the tramway rides and mashaAllah he was athletic although he is older than me. He would look for supermarkets and buy things cheap. What's the word for it? Wholesale? He would carry things on his own, do other things on his own without letting others do it for him. He would offer treats to the youth around him like ice-cream and etc. without getting one for himself. These are the things I witnessed in a few hours only. MashaAllah. How lucky you are when you have such scholars. And please pray for me that I accomplish what I have started. Thanks.
  3. Thank you all so much. I just assumed they are "studying" at the university because of their ages. And the parents in my little city aren't those kinds that would let their children unsupervised. For a girl to wander around in the park with boys, I assumed they are from different cities and are here to "study". Usually 2 year colleges are not considered worthy here. And most of the students there are just killing time "freely" away from their parents. So, I assumed they are studying at the university. My second clue was their Turkish accent. It was clear they were not born and raised in my city. So they have to be studying here away from their hometown and parents. It was just sad and made me angry. And three days ago, I went to a big city in Turkey and my God it was worse. If I had lived there, probably I would not be able to take my family around. People drinking alcohol in the streets and near the bosphorus, teens getting intimate in public transportations, dancing near the ice cream sellers. It seems the fall/secularism of the Muslim Nations are worse than the fall of non-muslims. Sad indeed. Just one man approached me after I prayed in Hagia Sophia. I thought he wanted to get to know me and why I prayed like I did (because that I witnessed many times) and to my surprise he was asking for money. Anyway, I haven't been to other countries except for Iran and now I know better why we need to live under an Islamic Government and why the moral police is also a necessary institution. May Allah protect the Ummah from the evils of secularism.
  4. Salam. So I took my family to the park today. And while my eldest son (4 year old) was riding his tricycle, a group of youth (three girls and three boys, probably university students) passed by. He quickly moved to the side and waited for them to pass. And a girl approached to him, making him more nervous and said: "Hey guys! Look at this boy! How stupid he is looking at us!" and then they laughed. I mean, for real? These youth will become mothers and fathers one day. And as university students they should have known about the children's psychology. I mean he did not go out or meet any people. They should have known about the covid lockdown and its affects. And he surely startles with people passing by. And I want him to be self confident and instructing him to ride farther every time he rides his bike and then this happens. I am not saying every child is like this. Yesterday, a Syrian little kid (7 or 8 year old) in the street approached me and opened my hand and got the little toys I just bought for my kids and ran away. But, there sure are shy and introvert kids out there. Why did they do this? I would not and did not mind kids making mistakes but university students should know better. Well, I reprimanded them very loudly. To my surprise, the girl tried to walk towards me to probably argue and a boy grabbed her and they all walked away. What would you do in such a situation? I don't want to look for more secluded areas for our future visits to the park or picnic places. How would you correct youth who disrespect your family? And how can I make my sons be active but not oppressive in social life? Thanks a lot.
  5. Salam alaikum. MashaAllah. Forums are nowadays less active because youth are more interested in social media. With facebook, instagram, reddit and tiktok started; youth these days are wasting their time on such websites and not having scholarly discussions on forums. Even international forums on reviewing/discussing books are idle. Let alone a minority islamic forum like this. But quality rather than quantity is what matters. Like you said, what matters is morality and good naturedness and inshaAllah you all have it. I pray for you and that you find a spouse who has the same thoughts and standards like you. Also, to keep this islamic forums active, we can start more threads and ask and discuss matters that are the society is struggling with nowadays.
  6. The wahhabis accuse shia muslims of any dirty/sickly/filthy things that are occupying their own minds. They will describe any sickly fantasy of theirs and accuse shia muslims of doing them. In Turkey they distort the fact that Alevis have done "Mum Söndü" (It is a practice by ancient sufi-shia muslims where they under the dim light of candles, do dhikr of Allah and cry for Ahlulbayt). But the wahhabis in Turkey accuse the Alevis and Shiites of "putting out candles and then doing group sex with whomever they encounter" (i.e. adultery, group sex, homosexuality and incest). So this is in their own minds and shows how sickly their own fantasies are. So, I wonder why you are busy with such immoral wahhabi people, reading their fantasies. If it is true, why even call it an islamic forum. Just call it a sickly retarded forum.
  7. Salamun alaikum. So, this writer gave me the permission to translate and publish her books in Turkish. But through messaging on instagram. But I need a document. She said she has never done this before. So, is there a template for this? So I can send her and she can sign it? Thanks a lot.
  8. Wa alaikum salam. Welcome to shiachat. I hope you like it here. Dr. Ali Shariati was a Muslim. And he was a shia Muslim. And a pure one at that. He differentiated Red Shiism (the Shia of Imam Ali) vs Black Shiism (the so-called Shia of Safawid Dynasty). Just like Imam Khomeini differentiated Pure Muhammadi Islam (the Islam of Prophet Muhammad) vs Americanized Islam (i.e. the so-called Islam that American regime is pleased with). Dr. Ali Shariati was a revolutionary/inqilabi shia Muslim. And that's why he is not liked by the bought pens/sheikhs of both the secular democratic regimes and backward monarchies. He is, though with some mistakes, is sure someone to read and learn from. Among his works I suggest these most; Hajj Man and Islam Religion vs Religion Once Again Abu Dharr Hussain, the Heir of Adam Martyrdom: Arise and Bear Witness Here's a four minute video about him. His friend Prof. Dr. Hasan Rahimpour Azghadi describes him with his strengths and weaknesses: https://purestream-media.com/video/the-controversial-dr-ali-shariati-dr-rahimpour-azghadi-farsi-sub-english/ The video is available here as well: https://www.shiatv.net/video/1920325229
  9. Wa alaikum salam. MashaAllah, so nice to know we have shia muslims here with various talents. I kindly advise you to stay away from doing fanart. However, creating your own animes is surely OK. Have you checked shia childrens books? Kisa Kids, Um Aimen Books, etc. I believe you can work with them as a start. They mention you as the illustrator and with a brief biography of yours and instagram link in the first page of the book, so you can be famous amongst Muslims. Also, in the Islamic Republic of Iran, animation series with fictional characters are widespread as long as they give messages on morality, islam and ahlulbayt. Here are some state sponsored animation series in the Islamic Republic with fictional characters in them. https://www.iribmediatrade.ir/www.iribmediatrade.ir/Animation.htm I hope you like them.
  10. PKK surely is a terrorist organization BUT considering the fact that 80% of the Kurds are living in Turkey and the leaders of the PKK terrorist organization are hosted in İmralı Island of Turkey giving statements all the time. And the fact that it has been the Turkish regime which destabilized Iraq and Syria by funding and arming the rebels in Syria and also letting the USA invade Iraq and Syria through İncirlik Airbase and all the 40 NATO bases in Turkey. So, as a member of NATO (kufr alliance), it has been Turkey that invaded and destabilized Iraq and Syria. And Turkey caused the weakening of the governments/states there. So, Turkey created the athmosphere for PKK-PJAK-PYD-YPG etc. become stronger and claim autonomy in the neighbouring states. Erdoğan surely is wanting a greater Israel in the name of Kurdistan. He does not care about the Turkish state or the Turks or the Kurds. Because his actions have proved that his invasion and fight against Iraqi and Syrian governments serve the NATO and Greater Israel. He just uses the feelings of Turks and Sunni Muslims but what he does causes more harm for them. I wish people knew. Here Erdoğan admits that TOGETHER WITH AMERICA AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, HE FOUNDED THE FSA HERE ERDOĞAN ADMITS HE IS THE MAIN SPONSOR AND ALLY OF THE USA IN ITS "GREATER" MIDDLE EAST PROJECT:
  11. wa alaikum salam. Howza is cool. See: https://islamicpulse.tv/video_category/howza-life/ However, you might want to contact Al Mustafa International University for your studies and career.
  12. In the name of Allah. Salamun alaikum. Welcome to shiachat islamic forum. I hope you enjoy it here. BLESSED IS YOUR FRIEND for they admit they do not know certain things. Because, most of the time, people with less knowledge become arrogant and they suppose they know everything. So they judge and give fatwas according to their wills. A self proclaimed marja, if you will. On the other hand, this friend of yours admit, he does not know many things and he does not. We do not know either. That's why we study faith and religion. We are advised to seek knowledge from cradle to the grave. And InshaAllah we will. I wish your friend also accompanied you on shiachat. Because, like you and us, certainly he could learn a lot on this website. And I believe certain actions of his, is not that of the shia of Imam Ali. Because seeing the matters on your list, I believe he is affected by the ghulat/extremists "amongst" us. AND BLESSED ARE YOU for you do not judge a nation (shia muslims) over what you hear about them. Rather you are meeting and talking to them with no intermediaries. So you are dodging the misinformation and disinformation out there. You are certainly one of the few believers who listen and obey Allah's order in this verse; "O you who have faith! If a fasiq (sinner/vicious person) brings you some news, verify it, lest you should visit [harm] on some people out of ignorance, and then become regretful for what you have done." (al-Hujurah, 6) I don't mean all those who spread rumours about shia muslims are fasiq themselves, but by repeating what they hear about the shias, they are joining the fasiq ones without knowing (unintentionally). And the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) in a hadith which is recorded in sunni sources (I was a sunni, so I know) tells that; "It is enough falsehood for someone to speak of everything he hears." (Muslim, 8) So, most of those who spread lies about shia muslims, are those who repeat what they hear about them. And again, blessed are you, to investigate the truth about shia muslims. And with your permission, I want to point out to you and to all of us that, first and foremost, we are all Muslims and Muslims believing in one God (tawhid) should come together as monotheists (muwahhideen) and form a united ummah (islamic wahdah/unity). And Islam is not limited to one sect, race or nation. Sunni, Shia, Sufi, Salafi etc. are all Islam and they need to be united on certain concepts such as Tawhid and Nubuwwah. This call of unity is there in the Holy Quran even to the people of the book. "Say: O people of the book! Come to a common word between us and you; that we worship no one but Allah.." See; the Holy Quran calls even the people of the book to unity, on the concept of monotheism/tawhid. And when this is the case ordered by Allah, why should we add extra conditions for unity among Muslims? Some say: "Oh no! You gotta believe in the superiority of such and such companion for us to unite!" I mean, is "Belief in the companions" one of the six articles of faith in sunni islam? No. So, why add an extra condition as an obstacle to the Islamic Unity. And by Islamic Unity, I don't mean you leaving sunnism and becoming shia or us leaving shia islam and become a sunni. Unity means you stay as what you are but act united in the social and religious platform. So, again, Islam is not just limited to one sect, nation or tribe. And a sect (let's say sunnism) can not leave another sect of islam out and claim that they are the only people of jamaah (unity). No, that still would be and is sectarianism even though you might name it jamaah/unity. So, yes, the jamaah; i.e. people of unity are saved. But not those who ditch others and claim that they are the jamaah. Those who work for the unity of people on the common word of Tawhid are saved. And there are many shiite and sunni muslims alhamdolellah calling for unity. They will be saved. And inshaAllah, we all do and will work for unity as ordained by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). However, there are some handicaps of unity. First; is the divide and conquer policy of the imperialists. Second; is the extremists of either sect (i.e. ghulat/akhbaris of shiite islam and wahhabis/takfiris of sunni islam). And Third; wait for it, is the TOOLS/AGENTS of the first group; showing you the texts, images, videos of the second groups (i.e. extremists of each other) in order to "prove" their point that; they are on the right path while the other sect is misguided. So; all these work hand in hand to undermine the Islamic Unity. And while we (the mainstream sunni and shia muslims) are busy defending ourselves from the attacks of the extremists of the other side; we surely are kept away from diving deeper in the oceans of the irfan (gnosis) and hikmah (wisdom) and even akhlaq (morality). Such a sad reality we are in now. Anyway, as someone who has experienced a lot, may I kindly advise you to study the shia philosophy of the Islamic practices you already know and believe in; so that you dive into and benefit these oceans more. I mean you can still study islamic history and theology and decide for yourself but what I mean is your priority should be these oceans first. I am stressing on this because I witnessed a lot of sad cases. People did not focus on their irfan/spirituality and got themselves lost in deciding who Mr. Better is (shia or sunni) while neglecting their journey and ibadah and servitude to God. So they ended up figuring out who Mr Better is according to their confined views but did not gain a single trait of the true sunni or shia of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ahlulbayt as. So, I kindly suggest you carry on your daily practices while reading the "other" sect's views and philosophy behind these practices. And whether you stay a sunni, or become a shiite, or become a mixed sushi, always love the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ahlulbayt as. Here are some booklet (you can download them as e-books) for you my friend and I don't know why but I assume you are such a great bookworm. https://www.al-islam.org/radiance-secrets-prayer-muhsin-qaraati https://www.al-islam.org/commentary-prayer-muhsin-qaraati https://www.al-islam.org/spiritual-discourses-murtadha-mutahhari https://www.al-islam.org/polarization-around-character-ali-ibn-abi-talib-murtadha-mutahhari Believe me, these books won't try to convert you. I did not list the ones doing so. I mean well for your spiritual journey. And who knows maybe later, if you have some extra time, wou will read the others as well. I am always here inshaallah to accompany you my friend. OK. Let's get back to your questions. Shall we? The shia muslim brethren here adressed your questions and I think you got the answers by now. But I want to add a few other points for these questions of yours; I don't know how your friend deduced that and claimed divine knowledge of the dwellers of heaven and hell but we don't even know whether ourselves will be in heaven or hell. So, I would not say that. No shia should. Especially when our maraji (Ayatollahs) have issued fatwas forbidding the treason/cursing to the revered figures of sunni brethren. So, it was wrong of him to say that. HE NEEDS TO BE CORRECTED. And you can show him the fatawa of maraji to do that. But if he does not care about the fatawa of maraji; you and I can deduce that he is not a mainstream usouli shia. Rather he is an akhbari, following his own whims. BUT, with all due respect; I also need to correct your beliefs as well; A- I may be wrong about my deduction but I think you assume that all the believers who saw the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is a sahabah/companion of the Prophet whereas it is not the case. If this is the case, I mean if you hold the view that, any muslim who had been in the presence of the Holy Prophet is a sahaba; I will direct you to an interesting hadith in sunni sources. تَسُبُّوا أَصْحَابِي لاَ تَسُبُّوا أَصْحَابِي فَوَالَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَوْ أَنَّ أَحَدَكُمْ أَنْفَقَ مِثْلَ أُحُدٍ ذَهَبًا مَا أَدْرَكَ مُدَّ أَحَدِهِمْ وَلاَ نَصِيفَهُ ‏" Do not revile my Companions, do not revile my Companions. By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as Uhud it would not amount to as much as one much on behalf of one of them or half of it. (Muslim, Arabic, book 44, 316) This hadith is interestingly used by some to face the ghulat/extremist of the shia over their slenders. Though they are right and shia maraji/ayatollahs and we mainstream shiites are also right to call them not to slender the companions. Here's another fact that we can deduce from this sunni hadith. WHO DID THE HOLY PROPHET ADRESS in this specific hadith? And on WHAT OCCASION did he do that? I mean, did he foresee these ghulat? Or did he witness something in his lifetime and adressed the issue of that present to this present time? The answer is the latter. My dear brother. All the sunni history books reveal that some believers/muslims made fun of Abdullah ibn Masud (رضي الله عنه) . Abdullah bin Masud was short and very slim. And when he climbed up a palm tree, they (the very people you call sahaba/companions) saw his skinny legs and laughed and made jokes. And the Holy Prophet warned them and told them to not make fun of his companions. The hadith that strictly says "Do not revile my Companions, do not revile my Companions! By Him in Whose Hand is my life, if one amongst you would have spent as much gold as Uhud it would not amount to as much as one much on behalf of one of them or half of it." adresses the very same people sunnis call Sahaba/Companions today. So, you see, the adressees were Muslims around the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). The Holy Prophet does not call them his companions. He warns them not to revile his companions one of whom was Abdullah bin Masud (رضي الله عنه). So you see; the notion that every believer around the Holy Prophet was a companion/sahaba is wrong. The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) had lots of companions and in fact shia sources mention that there were three thousand blessed companions of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). But, most of them were forgotton because they did not get into politics. And sunnism today sadly focuses on the companions who were involved in politics only. Don't you wonder why some hadiths in sunni sources, goes like; "Abu Bakr came.. And then Umar came.. And then Uthman came.." It is clear they were all made up by the cholars of Umayyads to get people into thinking the legitimacy of whomever sits on the throne. As I said before; there were lots of truthful companions but heir stories are never shared. They are forgotton because they did not get into rivalry against Ahlulbayt in politics. But those few who were, suddenly made to the top of the companions list. Don't you wonder why all "the Ten whom Paradise was promised" were all political figures and fought one another? So, anyway, it is clear from the historical event of muslims mocking Abdullah bin Masud (رضي الله عنه) and the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) warning them about his companions is; that not all Muslims who were in presence of the Prophet were companions. The title companions apply select few believers. B- You are assuming that the general rules apply to all specific whereas it is not the case. Allah praises the immigrants and the helpers (muhajiroon and ansar) over what they have done. And what great traits they are indeed. (For someone to leave the beloved ones, houses, materials and homeland behind for the sake of religion. And for someone to host immigrants, share everything with them, give them houses, work and even leadership of the land). But HE does not praise the future exceptions. And it is also proven by other Quranic Verses. O ye who believe! Whoso of you becometh a renegade from his religion, (know that in his stead) Allah will bring a people whom He loveth and who love Him, humble toward believers, stern toward disbelievers, striving in the way of Allah, and fearing not the blame of any blamer. Such is the grace of Allah which He giveth unto whom He will. Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing. (Al-Maidah, 54) Muhammad, the Apostle of Allah, and those who are with him are hard against the faithless and merciful amongst themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in worship], seeking Allah’s grace, and [His] pleasure. Their mark is [visible] on their faces, from the effect of prostration. Such is their description in the Torah and their description in the Evangel. Like a tillage that sends out its shoots and builds them up, and they grow stout and settle on their stalks, impressing the sowers, so that He may enrage the faithless by them. Allah has promised those of them who have faith and do righteous deeds forgiveness and a great reward. (Al-Fath, 29) It is clear from these verses that; the traits of companions of the Holy Prophet is that; they love and mercy one another and fight and do not show mercy the disbelievers. And the history tells us that there were fights amongst Muslims after the demise of the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). So, it means that, some turned away from the religion and did what they did and got out of the fold of companionship. Thus, the wars. One can not claim both sides in a war, were still companions. Because the traits of companions is that they love one another. And here are some sahih narrations in sunni sources, proving that, even the companions of the Holy Prophet might derail from the path and end up in hell. أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ يَرِدُ عَلَى الْحَوْضِ رِجَالٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِي فَيُحَلَّئُونَ عَنْهُ فَأَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ أَصْحَابِي‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَكَ بِمَا أَحْدَثُوا بَعْدَكَ، إِنَّهُمُ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهِمُ الْقَهْقَرَى the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said, "Some men from my companions will come to my Lake-Fount and they will be driven away from it, and I will say, 'O Lord, my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge of what they innovated after you left: they turned apostate as renegades (reverted from Islam). (Bukhari Book 81, Hadith 174) النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ لَيَرِدَنَّ عَلَىَّ نَاسٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِي الْحَوْضَ، حَتَّى عَرَفْتُهُمُ اخْتُلِجُوا دُونِي، فَأَقُولُ أَصْحَابِي‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ لاَ تَدْرِي مَا أَحْدَثُوا بَعْدَكَ ‏"‏‏ The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said, "Some of my companions will come to me at my Lake Fount, and after I recognize them, they will then be taken away from me, whereupon I will say, 'My companions!' Then it will be said, 'You do not know what they innovated (new things) in the religion after you."‏ (Bukhari, Book 81, Hadith 170) أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ لَيَرِدَنَّ عَلَىَّ الْحَوْضَ رِجَالٌ مِمَّنْ صَاحَبَنِي حَتَّى إِذَا رَأَيْتُهُمْ وَرُفِعُوا إِلَىَّ اخْتُلِجُوا دُونِي فَلأَقُولَنَّ أَىْ رَبِّ أُصَيْحَابِي أُصَيْحَابِي ‏.‏ فَلَيُقَالَنَّ لِي إِنَّكَ لاَ تَدْرِي مَا أَحْدَثُوا بَعْدَكَ ‏" Allah's Apostle (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) surely said: Some persons from amongst my companions would turn to my Cistern; when I would see them and they would be presented to me, they would be detained in the way while coming to me. I would say: My Lord, they are my companions, they are my companions, and it would be said to me: You don't know what innovations they made after you. (Muslim, Book 43, Hadith 56) أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏ "‏ يَرِدُ عَلَىَّ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ رَهْطٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِي فَيُحَلَّئُونَ عَنِ الْحَوْضِ فَأَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ أَصْحَابِي‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ إِنَّكَ لاَ عِلْمَ لَكَ بِمَا أَحْدَثُوا بَعْدَكَ، إِنَّهُمُ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَى أَدْبَارِهِمُ الْقَهْقَرَى ‏ The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) surely said: "On the Day of Resurrection a group of companions will come to me, but will be driven away from the Lake-Fount, and I will say, 'O Lord (those are) my companions!' It will be said, 'You have no knowledge as to what they innovated after you left; they turned apostate as renegades. (Bukhari, Book 81, Hadith 173) So, you see, A- Not all the muslims who were in the presence of the Holy Prophet were companions. B- Even then, it does not guarantee that they all stayed as and continued to be companions after the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) . And if a person says that, "Even though they might have fought one another, they are all still companions. And they may be rewarded in heavens because what they did was ijtihad." And then I say, "When shia Muslims do research to find out who was right and who was wrong in order to decide which to follow; even though they might be wrong in their deductions, they still get reward and end up in heavens because what they do is also ijtihad." One can not simply assume that "the ijtihad differences and even wars between companions can be excused and the ijtihad of the muslims in our time can not be". Rather the wrongs in our ijtihad can be excused more easily because, we are miles and centuries away from the presence of the Holy Prophet. Whereas the companions were in the presence of the Prophet and they are and will be held more accountable. Hence this verse; "...Whosoever of you committeth manifest lewdness, the punishment for her will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah. And whosoever of you is submissive unto Allah and His messenger and doeth right, We shall give her her reward twice over, and We have prepared for her a rich provision." (al-Ahzab, 31) You see, the wives and companions of the Holy Prophet are and will be held more accountable, because they were in the Holy Presence of the Prophet. They saw him with their own eyes, heard his warnings with their own ears, with no intermediary. Whereas we hear him through lots of transmitters who may have made mistakes. So, my dear friend. If a person hates Islam and Quran and the Prophet. If he has enmity towards Islam and Muslims and he swears/curses the companions, his abode is Hell. Just like Salman Rushdie, Charlie Hebdo etc. is. However if a person, believes in Allah and the Holy Prophet and investigates the history for the sake of following the right way. Even though he might make mistakes, he will be excused. Because what he does is ijtihad. I hope it helps. And feel free to ask any more questions. Welcome again to shiachat.
  13. Attacking what shia scholars? Any proof? Since when people can accuse others with no evidence? From what I have seen online, they are preaching shia Islam very well. And I was hoping to get the number of the sheikh there because I need his permission for a project of mine.
