  1. Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi rajioon. The writer of this book and three other books and Davet Dergisi (Islamic Invitation Monthly Journals), the leader of the Hizbullahi Movement in Turkey (Islami Davet), Ustad Hilmi Kocaaslan AKA Sheikh Hizbullah Hakverdi passed away yesterday. Here's the taziyah message of his followers. English translation:
  2. Wa salam. Welcome to the forum. I kindly suggest you should read his works instead. Rather than reading misquotes and mistranslations and disinformation on his books on wahhabi websites. Here are some of his books translated into English: https://www.al-islam.org/adab-salat-disciplines-prayer-second-revised-edition-sayyid-ruhullah-musawi-khomeini https://www.al-islam.org/forty-hadith-exposition-second-revised-edition-sayyid-ruhullah-musawi-khomeini https://www.al-islam.org/imam-khomeinis-last-will-and-testament
  3. Wa alaikum salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What a nice journey to God Almighty. May Allah bless you and assist you on the path. Congregations-Communities is a must, especially for new reverts. Because if you are a part of a community, you do not indulge and waste your time in meaningless discussions-debates with the other Muslim Denominatios. Rather you benefit from your community and maybe find an opportunity to grow spiritually (irfan). Because you won't be busy defending your faith, rather you will be practicing it more. (Salah, Supplications, Dhikr, Lectures etc.) And I am sure, the communities you contacted via e-mail, did not see the mails. Many online websites don't check hteir e-mails. Or check it later due to their busy schedule. Or may be there is another reason. In such cases, we need to be thinking positively of others (what was the sufi word for this? Husn al Dhann?). Maybe you call them instead of e-mailing? Or drop by. I am sure they will welcome you. May Allah bless you. We don't use hadiths. We follow them and ask others (our sunni brethren) to follow them as well, telling them these hadiths are also available in their own sources. May Allah bless you.
  4. Thank you so much. May Allah bless you. This is what I need. Thanks.
  5. Snake.io and I pick the the nickname "shiachat". So that people get to know about this website. lol
  6. https://www.instagram.com/p/COqesvBhl8z/ Here's a one minute video from an instagram page I follow. There is a three sentence supplication in it. Could you find the Arabic text (with diacritical marks) so that I memorize it right? Also if you could tell me its source? Is it a prayer taught by the Holy Prophet (s) or Imams ((عليه السلام))? Thanks a lot.
  7. I know Imam Ali Khamenei personally translated a few volumes of Syed Qotb's Fi Zilal al Quran Tafsir into Persian, so the Iranians and other Persian speaking nations would benefit from it. So, yes, Ikhwan al Muslimin and Islamic Revolution have had good relations with each other. But that changed when some groups among ikhwan went astray because of the bad leadership in them. The ikhwan in Palestine however is on the same right track.
  8. You can look up Metawalis and other Shia Muslim Groups in Palestine and Jordan that coordinate with Hamas and Islamic Jihad. There was also Sabireen Movement which consist of both sunni and shia muslims but they seperated their ways with Ikhwanis when Sabireen refused to back down or cease their attacks against Israel, when the Gulf States wanted normalization with Israel.
  9. Arbaeen in Kabul https://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2021/09/27/667404/Hundreds-of-Imam-Hussain-lovers-rally-in-Kabul-on-occasion-of-Arbaeen
  10. Salam. I was wondering if there are any non-muslims that met and embraced shia islam while they were in jail. I want to know their stories. Thanks.
  11. Salam. The Holy Quran asks us to obey Allah and His Messenger unconditionally. And some people (AhlulBayt, companions, maraji etc.) conditionally. If you study the Verse of Obedience (Quran, 4:59) and its interpretations, you will see that the Quran says "Obey" twice but not thrice. "O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those people of authority among you..." Thus, making it clear that the obedience to God and Prophet is unconditional. However, obedience to others is conditinal. And when it somes to the verse you mentioned; we forget the same thing. The obedience to the Muhajireen and Ansaar is not unconditional. Because if we follow all the companions, then we would need to fight amongs one another as well. Because, the history tells us that companions fought one another gathering huge armies. So, the order of following is not an unconditional and general one. It is specific. The fact that the English translation of the verse missed to translate the word "Minal" (amongst) is a proof for this. The verse says, those who follow the SABIQOON AL-AWWALEEN (first generation) AMONGST Muhajireen and Ansaar. So, the verse does not order us to follow all the Muhajireen and Ansaar. It tells us to follow the FOREMOST among them. And if you study the Holy Quran, you will see that the Muslim Ummah is categorized in 3 different ways. 1- SABIQOON (first comers) 2- AL WUSTA (the middle ones) and 3- AL AKHAREEN (the last ones, in the end times). And if you study the Hadiths (especially sunni hadiths, I was a sunni, so I know), you will see that the اٰخَر۪ينَ AKHAREEN (special muslims in the end times) is praised more by the Prophet. The hadiths that go like: "Peace be upon you! The abode of the believing people and we, if God so wills, are about to join you. I love to see my brothers." They (the companions) said: Aren't we your brothers, O Messenger of Allah? He said: You are my companions, and our brothers are those who have, so far, not come into the world." "The parable of my Ummah is that of rain, it is uncertain if the first (awwaleen) or last (akhareen) of it is better" There are even some hadiths that mention the Akhareenn doing a good deed is more worth than 30-40 companions doing the same deed. Even the Holy Quran praises the Akhareen: "Along with others of them (AKHAREEN) who have not yet joined them yet. He is the Mighty, the Wise." (Quran 62:3) So, you see, when the Holy Quran and the Prophet praise the three categories of the Ummah, they praise certain people among those generations. And the number 73 emerges. In the battle of Uhud, Hamza ((رضي الله عنه)) and his 72 friends. In Karbala, Hussain ((عليه السلام)) and his 72 friends. And in Iran, Beheshti and his 72 friends. They were all best martyrs of Islam of these 3 generations. And Allah made us "the wusta/middle nation" is a sign that we should follow the martyrs of Karbala first.
  12. Nothing special. Throwing pebbles is a symbol. You didn't/don't need to hit something in the middle for that. So it astonishes me when someone can't hit the pillar, they throw again and again. Thus throwing more pebbles than they should.
  13. The pillars were not there in the time of the Prophet. They were built after, because of the crowd. And this does not make Hajj void. If the wajibaat are done, then it is fine. So we need to focus on them, such as BARAAH MINAL MUSHRIKEEN etc. Here's a booklet on real Hajj https://www.al-islam.org/hajj-pilgrimage-ali-shariati
  14. If you suppose such exagerations are true stories, then go break all your teeth. Why don't you? Start another innovation into the religion; when Imams themselves did not perform such acts. Neither they broke their teeth, nor they flaggelated each other or their babies. But you can do it, right? But when you do it, don't tell people that you are a shia following the Imams or Maraji. Just say you are a masochist.
  15. Prepared by islamicpulse.tv (which is run by the students at Al Mostafa International Islamic University in Iran) these two short videos discuss Music in Islam through Quran, Hadith and Fatawas of Maraji https://www.aparat.com/v/sxDy7/How_Haram_is_Music%3F_|_Biskit_|_English https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=221797902626027 In summary it depends of the content of the music and the effects it has on you. So, in the Islamic Republic, music is categorized as Mujazz (permissible) vs Haram (forbidden) music-songs depending on their content (lyrics and mood of the music). Also, certain kinds of music are totally dismissed in Iran like Rap Music and others (because of the swear words in them). Also, in Iran women can play instruments but can't vocal alone. However they can sing in a group.
