  1. Shukran for the videos. I will make sure to check them out. I've been watching a whole bunch of videos from Ahl al Bayt Documentaries also but I definitely need these bigographies. ma'as salama
  2. As salamu 'alaykum, I don't remember the sources where I read this, I was under the impression that this was mentioned in Imam al Tabari's tarikh but heard conflicting 2nd hand reports about it being in tabari's tarikh. They mentioned a truce between Imam Hasan and mu'awiya which included that mu'awiya would have to let the people choose this successor as opposed to picking his son yazid and that's which he bribed Imam Hasans wife to poison him to annul the agreement and appoint yazid. I'm curious if this is in any sunni sources, specifically Imam al Tabari or any others you might know of. It seems to make sense to me in terms of motives and predictable behavior for latecomers into Islam (obviously power hungry) but I still want to make sure its certain before I take it as a belief. (it seems that there are many conflicting reports amongst sunni's as to whether this happed or how it happened, wallahu a'lam) ma'as salama
  3. the only time that exists is the present, the past is over and the future hasn't happened yet
  4. As salamu 'alaykum, God is capable of doing anything which is logically possible, Can God create a stone so heavy He couldn't lift it? No. This is called the law of contradiction in philosophy. As for verses in the scriptures that sound anthropomorphic if taken literally we understand these verses figuratively in light of other verses that lay down general principles proving Allah's tanzih (free of all defects and human like attributes). The reason why God is not created while everything else is is because God has no substance (energy or matter). God is perfect vacuum and continuum and the created was emenated into existence from God gradually. God is everywhere all the time and is unaffected by time and space. God is the immaterial essence of all that exists and is in no need of created beings whilst all created being are in need of Him, whether they admit it or not. God knows everything but lets the creation deal with each other except when God chooses to intervene (letting them deal with eachother allows them to reap reward or punishment in the next life with how they choose to use this free will. If God did not allow us these choice there would be no good in our good deeds because we would basically be forced into everything we do, good or bad, like a puppet on a string,. The best quote on free will I know of is: free will is the cause and fate is the effect, solving the problem of free will and determinism. ma'as salama
  5. As salamu 'alaykum, Could anyone enlighten me regarding any ahadith of the Mahdi (sa) pertaining to the former scriptures? Shukran jazilan ma'asalama
  6. Shukran jazilan for the responses. @Ashvazdanghe To Ashvazdanghe thanks a lot, you gave me exactly what I've been seeking for a long time as most of my post was sloppy and uncertain and needed the clarification you gave me. I'll have to re-read that profusely. Jazakullah khair to Panzerwaffe too. @Panzerwaffe ma'as salama
  7. As salamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, I've been a sunni muslim most of my life but in recent years I've been very fascinated with the Shiite Imams and wanted to learn more about them. I know of certain shuyukh amongst the sunni's such as Shaykh Hasan 'Ali Saqqaf who are known to have shiite leanings or tendencies. I did some research online for years and was hoping you could comment on and elaborate on the following observations: sunni tashayu’ the first imam of the shia who founded the imamate was imam `ali zayn al ‘abidin imam ali zayn al ‘abidin was selected after the martyrdom of al husayn at karbala by the shi’a ‘ali taqiya was a later heresy the shia ‘ali were a rival dynasty of the umayyid and abbasid dynasties imam ja’far was infallible and the other imams had a minimal margin of error once imam ja’far was accused of using religious teachings to become wealthy and in his respose he commented on just about every type of knowledge that existed many topics of which he could become rich due to his knowledge of and he proved his sincerity and that teaching religion is a far less lucrative field thus proving their accusation false an early sunni supporter of the shia ‘ali was the great imam abu hanifa who supported several shia rebellions in order to make light of the then caliphs desire to kill Imam Ja’fars successor he listed as his successor the caliph’s governor and several others the caliph didn’t wish to kill as his successors thus foiling the caliph and governors plans to expend the next imam his three sons were imam isma’il who predeceased him, imam musa al kadhim who was the choice of the imami shi’as and his other son abd allah al aftah hadiths about the Mahdi – this grandson of mine will be a sayyid (al hussain) al mahdi will be from the descendants of fatima – ibn kathir he will die at 40 years old (first Mahdi not certain about second) – al suyuti he will descend with gabriel and michael at his sides – al suyuti he will die doing what he found comfort in – al suyuti he will bring justice to the world while it was previously filled with darkness and oppression ibn kathir he will do this for seven years – ibn kathir he will have a mole on his right cheak - shia hadith he will have a head like an ‘arab and a body like an Israelite – shia hadith it was the shia ‘ali (imami’s) who founded the jami’a al azhar al sharif in cairo, egypt and the shia ‘ali (zaydi’s) who founded the jami’a al qarawiyyin in fez, Morocco I had a few narrations that i would appreciate commentary on: that the rasul said to khalid ibn al walid "la tasubb ashabi" even though most sunni's consider khalid ibn al walid a sahabi himself. also that sa'id ibn al mussayyab considered that in order to \be a sahabi one had to have known the rasul at least a couple of years and fought in at least a couple of battles with him. Also that those who accepted islam bedfore the fath of makka were not of the same rank as those who did so after . And could someone please tell me about the narrations that mu'awiya bribed al Hasans wife to poison him so he could break his vow with al Hasan and choose Yazid as his successor. I also was interest in finding out about sunni's with light tashayu' which was my biggest intersest with starting this thread and i found an article online that i seem to have lost that said there were early hadith narrators that ahl al sunnah wal jama'a accapted with light tashayu who beleived 'ali had more right to the caliphate than 'uthman and who believed he was fully right in hist debate with mu'awaiya and who respected abu bakr and umar The reason Mu’awiya was not a khalifa Rashida was because he ruled as a king not a khalifa. He was clearly outwardly a sinner and Allah knows best maybe worse inwardly Min akhikum fil islami Abu Yusuf ma'as salama
