  1. The answer to this question is that it is because of politics. Because of the sinfulness of the so-called "caliphs" of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), the caliphs fabricated narrations to show that the Prophet also sinned (na2ouzobillah). Therefore, when someone criticises them, they can just use the narration and say, "Look, the Prophet sinned too! I can't be perfect!" This is just what I've heard. I'm sure someone else has a better answer inshallah.
  2. Walaikom assalam Ramadan Mubarak to you too as well as all mo2mineen. There are numerous ad3iyeh which should be recited throughout the holy month of Ramadan. One can refer to the book Mafateeh al-Jinan for these. To buy Mafateeh al-Jinan with Arabic text and English translation, visit this link: https://www.amazon.com/Mafatih-al-Jinan-Translation-Supplications-Observances/dp/1073502597/ Here is a list of some supplications which should be recited throughout this month: Dua for Hajj (begins with "...اللّهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَ") There are various ad3iyeh related to 7ajj... we should ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to bless us with the performance of 7ajj. Dua al-Iftitah This du3a is narrated to us from Imam al-Mehdi (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف). Its recitation is recommended during the nights of the month of Ramadan. Dua Abu Hamza al-Thumali Dua Abu Hamza has been narrated by Abu Hamza al-Thumali from Imam Ali Zaynul Abideen (عليه السلام). The time to recite it is during the night, just before su7oor. For more ad3iyeh (as well as shorter ones), visit this link: https://www.duas.org/ramadhan.htm. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) allow us all to make use of the opportunity to make du3a to him this Ramadan.
  3. Salam alaikom This is incorrect. No shia say "ما شاء علي". We do say "يا علي". However, as was mentioned in an above post, when we shia say "Ya Ali", we don't mean it in the same way as we say "Ya Allah". When we say "Ya Ali", we know that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) relies on Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for everything. We're just asking him to intercede for us before Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Allah actually commands us to do this in the holy Quran: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَابْتَغُوا إِلَيْهِ الْوَسِيلَةَ "O you who have faith! Be wary of Allah, and seek the means of recourse to Him." (Surah al-Ma'idah 5:35) The "وسيلة" that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) mentions here means the prophets and imams. I couldn't find the first hadeeth, but there is a chapter with a name similar to the second one you mentioned: "The Imams ((عليه السلام).) have with all the books that Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has revealed and that they know them even the language in them are different". There is no problem in believing this and no, it is not shirk. It is not shirk because we believe that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has granted the prophets (A) and imams (A) portions of His knowledge. The prophets and imams don't have this knowledge independently, rather they rely on Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for such knowledge. Shirk would be if we said that the prophets and imams knew all the languages without Allah helping them. However, we believe that everything the prophets and imams knew or did was from the power of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). لا حول ولا قوة الا بالله
  4. Imam al-Khamenei (h) has also said that Thursday is the 1st of the month of Ramadan for Iran. https://english.khamenei.ir/news/9605/Thursday-will-be-the-first-day-of-the-holy-month-of-Ramadan
  5. Yes, this is true (for those in North America). https://imam-us.org/the-crescent-moon-of-the-holy-month-of-ramadan-1444-a-h
  6. Mashallah, it's a beautiful ayah. May Allah give you the opportunity to discuss it. btw "مَنِ اتَّبَعَنِي" could also mean Ameer al-Mo2mineen (عليه السلام) and the rest of the a2immah. (al-Kafi)
  7. maybe shortening tarawee7 isn't such a bad thing lol Seriously though, what do sunnis think about this?
