  1. Salam everyone, I'm not having this problem anymore, thanks for your help. May Allah bless, guide, protect, and have mercy on you and grant you Jannat Al-Firdaus.
  2. Quranic verses proving the following of Ahlul Bayt: https://www.al-islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol3-allamah-muhammad-baqir-al-majlisi/part-9-quranic-verses-proving-following-ahlul يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ O you who believe! obey Allah and obey the Apostle and those in authority (Ulil Amr) from among you. (Sura Nisa 4:59) وَإِذَا جَاءَهُمْ أَمْرٌ مِنَ الْأَمْنِ أَوْ الْخَوْفِ أَذَاعُوا بِهِ وَلَوْ رَدُّوهُ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَإِلَى أُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْهُمْ لَعَلِمَهُ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَنْبِطُونَهُ مِنْهُمْ وَلَوْلَا فَضْلُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ لَاتَّبَعْتُمْ الشَّيْطَانَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا And when there comes to them news of security or fear they spread it abroad; and if they had referred it to the Apostle and to those in authority among them, those among them who can search out the knowledge of it would have known it... (Sura Nisa :83) أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَى مَا آتَاهُمْ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُمْ مُلْكًا عَظِيمًا.فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ آمَنَ بِهِ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ صَدَّ عَنْهُ وَكَفَى بِجَهَنَّمَ سَعِيرًا Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrahim’s children the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom. So of them is he who believes in him, and of them is he who turns away from him, and hell is sufficient to burn. (Sura Nisa 4:54-55) قَالَ هَٰذَا صِرَاطٌ عَلَيَّ مُسْتَقِيمٌ He said: This is a path upon Me, (that is) straight (15:41) قَالَ هَٰذَا صِرَاطٌ عَلِيٍّ مُسْتَقِيمٌ He said: This is a path of Ali, (that is) straight (15:41) Explanation for the above Ayah with the name of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) in the Quran: Evidence 1: Unveiling 'Ali' in the Quran Evidence 2:
  3. Salam, sorry for the long wait, I promised myself I'd get back to you but I forgot to If God had physical parts, it means He would be in space. But we know that everything is created other than the Creator, so space and time are both creations of God. So logically, God cannot be inside His own creation. For example, if I create a car, I don't become the car, or I don't automatically be in the car, so it's the same here: God created time and space, but he is not limited by time nor space. (Another example could be that a parent doesn't need to follow the rules that they set for their kids, but I think that's a bit different). Another reason why God cannot have physical parts is because if God was physical, he would be confined and limited to space, and God is unlimited. لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ Nothing like a likeness of Him (42:11)
  4. Walaikum assalam warahmatullah Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Umar Bin Azina, from Al Fuzayl Bin Yasar who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام), "The people are saying that the Quran was revealed upon seven letters (ahruf)." So he said: "They are lying, enemies of Allah! But, it was revealed upon one letter (harf) from the presence of the One." Source: Al Kafi V 2 – The Book Of Merits of the Quran CH 14 H 13 From Jabir who said, 'I heard Abu Jafar (عليه السلام) saying: "There is no one from the people who can claim that he collected the Quran, all of it, just as Allah had revealed it, except for a liar, as no one collected it and preserved it just as Allah had revealed it except for Ali Ibn Abi Talib and the Imams from after him." Source: 2ِ/213ِالدرجاتِب (Talha then said) O Abul-Hassan, I would like to ask you something about the Quran. I saw you coming out with a sealed cloth to them [Abu Bakr and his companions in the Masjid-e-Nabawi]. You said: "O you people! I had been busy with Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) with washing him, and shrouding him, and burying him. Then I occupied myself with the Book of Allah until I collected (all of) it, so this is the Book of Allah collected without a letter missing from it." I [Talha] have never seen that Book which you wrote and composed [where is it?]." And I [Talha] have seen Umar, when he became the Caliph, sent someone to you that you should send it [the Quran] to him. You refused to do it. Umar called the people, so when two people bore witness to a Verse of the Quran, he would write it down, and what no more than one person bore witness to, he threw it out and he did not get it written, and Umar said – and I was listening: "On the Day of Yamama [a battle], men who would recite of the Quran [who had memorised it] were killed, and what they did not recite has been lost." And a goat came to the Parchment and ate it – which Umar had made them [people] to write down, and what was in it had been lost, and the Book today written by Uthman, what do you say about it? And I [Talha] heard Umar say, as well as his companions who composed it in the era of Uthman that, "Al-Ahzaab (Chapter 33) was equal to Surah Al-Baqarah (Chapter 2), and Al-Noor (Chapter 24) had one hundred and sixty Verses, and Al-Hujuraat (Chapter 49) had ninety Verses, so what is this? And what prevented you – may Allah have Mercy on you – to bring out to the people what you had composed? And I witnessed Uthman when he took what Umar had composed, so he composed the Book and made the people agree over one recitation and ripped the Parchments of Ubay Bin Ka’ab and Ibn Mas’ood and burnt both of these in the fire. So what is this?" Amirul-Momineen said: "O Talha, All the Verses which Allah Sent down in His Book upon Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is in my possession, by the dictation of the Messenger of Allah and in my writing by my hand, and the explanation of all that Allah sent down upon Muhammad, and all the Permissible or Prohibitions, or Limits, or Orders, or anything which the community will need up to the Day of Judgement is in myasws possession in a written form by the dictation of Rasoolullah, and in my writing, to the extent of the compensation for a scratch." Talha said, "All things, small or great, or specific or general, has occurred and will be (happening) up to the Day of Judgement, so it is written, and is in your possession?" He said: "Yes, and Rasoolullah divulged a secret to me during his illness, which opened a thousand doors of the knowledge, each of the doors opened to a thousand (further) doors. And had the community, since Allah Captured His Prophet, had followed me, and had obeyed me, they would have eaten (sustenance) from above them and from under their feet, plentifully, up to the Day of Judgement." Talha said, "What is you opinion – O Abul-Hasan – answer me to what I have asked you about the matter of the Quran, will you be displaying it to the people?" He said: "O Talha, I intentionally held back from answering you." He said, "So inform me of what was written by Umar and Uthman, is it all the Quran, or there is in it which is not the Quran?" He said, "But rather, all of it is the Quran. If you were to take to it with what is in it, you will be rescued from the Fire and will enter the Paradise, for in it are our Proofs, and the explanation of our matters and our rights, and the obligation of obedience to us." Talha said, "It is sufficient if it is the Quran, so it is sufficient for me." Then Talha said, "So, inform me about the Quran which is in you hands, and its explanation, and the knowledge of the Permissible and the Prohibited, to whom will you be handing it over to, and who is you companion after you?." Ali said: "To the one Rasoolullah has ordered me to hand it over to him." He said, "Who is he?" He said: "My successor and the first of the people to the people after me, this son of mine Al-Hasan, then my son Al-Hasan will hand it over, during his passing away, to this son of mine Al-Husayn, then it will be passed to one after the other from the sons of Al-Husayn, until the last of them will return it to the Messenger of Allah at his Fountain. And they are with the Quran and the Quran is with them , it will not separate from them nor will they separate from it."

Here's the link to where I got it from: https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/TafseerHub-e-Ali/TafseerHub-e-Ali_asws_Full.pdf ) I also recommend watching this video: Hope this helped, may Allah bless, forgive, guide and protect you and give you and your family Jannat al-Firdaus. Wassalam.
  5. Imam Ali Ibn Al-Husayn Zayn Al-Abideen (عليه السلام) states in Risalat Al-Huquq: The Arabic of this word 'prisoner' is 'أسير', transliterated to 'aseer'. I just don't think that 'prisoner' fits the status of a wife in Islam. But of course, I cannot question my beloved Imam either. I'm sure you've had this problem with other things before. What are your thoughts?
  6. MIRACLES OF IMAM MUSA AL-KADHIM (عليه السلام) Prison and the miracle of the Imam Waki has narrated from Amash that he said: During the time Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) was imprisoned in the jail of Harun it happened many times that the Imam used to disappear from there, but was again seen there after some time. Source: Dalailul Imamah, Pg. 157; Ithbatul Huda, Vol. 3, Pg. 209 Reviving a felled tree Amash narrates: Once I was travelling with Imam (عليه السلام) when we came across a tree lying that had been cut down, but when the Imam passed his hand on it affectionately it became verdant and fructified. The Imam ate the fruits and offered me as well. Source: Dalailul Imamah, Pg. 158 The Imam’s miracle in Prison Ghalib bin Marrah and Muhammad bin Ghalib say: We, father and son, were interred in Harun’s prison, where neither we got clean drinking water nor any shade or tree to shelter below. During that time Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) was also brought to our prison. For him Almighty Allah created a spring of pristine water and caused a tree to grow over there. He used to drink the cool water of this spring and sitting under the shade of the tree remained engrossed in devotions. And the strange thing was that when one of Harun’s men visited the prison, he was not able to see that spring and the tree. Source: Dalailul Imamah, Pg. 157 Descent of the table from the heavens Musa bin Harun narrates: In Harun’s prison, many a times, I observed a tray of food descending from the sky for Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام). The Imam ate from it and also offered to the other prisoners; and all the prisoners used to be satiated, but the food remained as it was. Then it used to return to the heavens. Source: Dalailul Imamah, Pg. 158 Wild beasts and obedience of the Imam Ammara bin Zaid says that Ibrahim bin Saad has narrated to me: Harun Rashid starved the beasts of the zoo for a number of days. Then he told me to take Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) amidst them so that they devour him. Under the orders of Harun I sent Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) to the starving beasts. As soon as the animals saw the Imam they ambled to him and started licking his feet and began to go around him; they were also telling him something in their language. When Harun was informed about this he released the Imam from the prison lest people learn about such incidents and become more devoted to him. Source: Dalailul Imamah, Pg. 158
  7. Nice conduct with the enemy Sharif Abu Muhammad Hasan bin Muhammad said on the authority of his grandfather (Yahya bin Hasan), on the authority of another of his colleagues and teachers, (who said): A man from the family of Umar bin Khattab was in Medina trying to harm Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام). Whenever he saw him he would curse him and curse Ali (عليه السلام). One day some of those who used to attend his gatherings said to him: “Let us kill this sinner.” He forbade them from (doing) that most firmly and rebuked them severely. He asked about the descendant of Umar and was told that he had a farm on the outskirts of Medina. He rode out to him and found him at his farm. As he entered the farm with his donkey, the descendant of Umar cried out: “Do not tread on my sown land.” Yet Imam Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) continued to tread on it with his donkey until he reached him. He dismounted and sat with him. He greeted him with a smile and laughed at him. “How much have you paid to sow your land?” he asked. “One hundred Dinars,” (the other man) answered. “How much do you hope to acquire from it?” “I do not know the unknown,” was the reply. “I only asked you about what you hope it would bring you,” retorted the Imam. “I hope that it will bring me two hundred Dinars,” he answered. Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) took out a purse in which was three hundred Dinars and said: “This is (the price) of what you have sown in its present condition (i.e. what you have spent to sow it and what you hope to gain from it.) May Allah provide you with what you hope for from it.” The descendant of Umar kissed his head and asked him to forgive his (former) hasty words about him. Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) smiled at him and went away. In the evening he went to the Masjid and found that descendant of Umar sitting there. When the latter saw him, he called out: “Allah knows best where to put his (prophetic) mission. His companions jumped (in surprise) towards him and said to him: “What is the story (behind what you say), for you used to speak quite differently from this.” “You have heard what I have said now,” he replied and began to speak in support of Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام). They opposed him and he opposed them. When Imam Musa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) returned to his house, he said to those who attended his gatherings and who had asked about killing the descendant of Umar: “Which was better - what you wanted or what I wanted? I put right his attitude to the extent which you have now become acquainted with. I was sufficient for the evil that was in him.” Source: Irshaad, Mufeed, Pg. 297; Elamul Wara, Pg. 296.
  8. Shahadat of Imam Musa al Kadhim | Shaykh Azhar Nasser I extend my condolences to all Mu’mineen on the Shahadat of our beloved Imam, Musa Ibn Jafar Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام). I would very much recommend this video. The Sheikh speaks about the Imam’s title ‘Bab Al-Hawaaij’, he talks about the Taqiyya that the Shia of the Imam had to practice, and of course no Majlis is complete without the Masaaib at the end. Enjoy inshallah.
  9. I made this club a while ago and it's not getting much notice so I'm just advertising, I guess. وَلَقَدْ يَسَّرْنَا ٱلْقُرْءَانَ لِلذِّكْرِ فَهَلْ مِن مُّدَّكِرٍ WALAQAD YASSARNALQUR'AANA LIDHDHIKRI FAHAL MIM-MUDDAKIR "And certainly We have made the Quran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will mind?" (Al-Qamar 54:17) May Allah bless you.
  10. We have numerous ahadith such as this one which state that even those Muwahideen on the Day of Judgement will not be saved if they do not believe in Wilayah: There's also this hadith: I found an article that I thought you might find interesting entitled 'Salvation of Non-Shias'. Here's the link: https://purifiedhousehold.com/salvation-of-non-shias/ Here's the conclusion of the article: The third Shahada is necessary to become a Shia, how can you not have heard of it? It is testifying to the Wilayah of Amirul Momineen (عليه السلام). Here's some information about the third Shadhada, but I recommend that you do more research yourself: https://en.wikishia.net/view/Third_Testimony Sunnis love the enemies of AhlulBayt, and that's a fact. Those two (I'm sure you know who I'm talking about) caused so much to go wrong in the lives of the AhlulBayt. Imam al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) says in a Ziyarah that he left for us: So the followers of those who oppressed AhlulBayt are also cursed. This I do agree on. We live in a pluralistic society so we have to tolerate others' beliefs. But this does not mean that we compromise our beliefs for others. May Allah guide the entire Ummah to Sirat Al-Mustaqeem. Wassalam.
  11. Salam, yes, that’s what the story seems to be. But really, Mu’awiya had a part in the assassination of Amirul Momineen (عليه السلام). Here’s an article about it: https://www.al-islam.org/restatement-history-islam-and-muslims-sayyid-ali-asghar-razwy/assassination-ali “At this time no one in Dar-ul-Islam was more interested in the assassination of Ali than Muawiya. The plot to kill Ali, the skill displayed in its execution, and its success, show the touch of consummate subtlety and a high degree of professionalism which were characteristic of Muawiya alone, whereas Ibn Muljam was nothing more than a bumpkin. Muawiya employed the same “skill” in removing from the scene, real or fancied threats to his own security and power, on numerous other occasions in later times, with the same results.” May Allah bless you and give you Jannat al-Firdaus.
  12. It does seem that way, doesn't it? There seem to be many people signed up to ShiaChat but not many active users. Here's a topic that you might find interesting: May Allah bless you and give you Jannat al-Firdaus.
  13. Here's the view of Ayatollah Khamenei according to http://ijtihadnet.com Here's the view of Ayatollah Sistani according to the same website: Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi has a different opinion, according to the same website: So you can see that Ayatollah Khamenei completely allows it, Ayatollah Sistani allows it although it is makruh, and Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi completely forbids it. It just depends on which Marja you follow. From http://ijtihadnet.com/ruling-snowmen-dolls-action-figures-plasticine-modeling/ May Allah bless you and give you Jannat al-Firdaus. Wassalam.
  14. Walaikum assalam dear brother. You should take your Shahada again. The Shia one also includes attesting to the Wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام), as I'm sure you've heard. https://en.wikishia.net/view/Third_Testimony Yeah, we have these main days of celebration: Eid Al-Fitr - the day of fast-breaking after Shahr Ramadan Eid Al-Adha - the day of the sacrifice of Prophet Ibraheem (عليه السلام). Eid Al-Ghadeer - the day that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was appointed as Mawla by Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Eid Al-Mubahila - the day that the Quran verse 3:61 was revealed. Eid Al-Zahra - the day that Umar Ibn Sa'd, killer of Imam Al-Husayn (عليه السلام), was finally killed by Mukhtar Al-Thaqafi. Fasting is forbidden on Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha. It is recommended for Eid Al-Ghadeer and Eid Al-Mubahila. We are also not allowed to fast on the 10th of Muharram, but we should refrain from food until late in the day. There are numerous websites that can help. Here are my favourites: Al-Islam.org: https://www.al-islam.org/ - good for islamic research Wikishia.net: https://en.wikishia.net/ - good for simple islamic questions Sistani.org: https://www.sistani.org/english/ - good for fiqh related questions Marefateahlebait.com: https://www.marefateahlebait.com/ - good for reading about AhlulBayt and their enemies Hubeali.com: https://www.hubeali.com/ - good for reading hadeeth and tafseer. Please let me know if you have any more questions. May Allah bless and forgive you and grant you Jannat al-Firdaus.
