  1. Yes, but we don't believe those who intercede us need intercession because either they are infallibles or their sins have already been forgiven by God. Or it could be possible that there are somone people who need intercession before they can intercede others. This is the thing that I really find some of the Christian interpretation very problematic, it somehow make all the past God religions as pointless and suddenly it introduce very weird and strange beliefs that contradict the past prophets teachings. It seems now all the repetance, intercessions, salvation comes from only believing in one man. In Islam, The salvation (of others than Muslims) does not depend on believing in our Prophet, rather, Christians will receive heven when they submit to God entirely and follow their book properly, do good deeds. Same Goes with Jews. As for intercession, They will receive Intercessions from their prophets and saints too. As for repetance, Jews, Christians will receive forgivness for their sins when they repent from their sins sincerely and ask mercy and forgivness from God. The Jews and Christians each claim that none will enter Paradise except those of their own faith. These are their desires. Reply, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Show ˹me˺ your proof if what you say is true.” But no! Whoever submits themselves to Allah and does good will have their reward with their Lord. And there will be no fear for them, nor will they grieve. The Jews say, “The Christians have nothing to stand on” and the Christians say, “The Jews have nothing to stand on,” although both recite the Scriptures. And those ˹pagans˺ who have no knowledge say the same ˹about people of faith˺. Surely Allah will judge between them on the Day of Judgment regarding their dispute. Qur'an 2:111-113 Yes both the Jews and Christians dispute while both of them have book from God. Is it not enough to believe and submit entirely to God of Abraham and follow your own scripture to salvation?
  2. Salaam Aleikum, Here is the 16 part of Seerah of Prophet Muhammad (saws):
  3. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) actually asked Talha and Zubayr to take the matter of Khilafa where where they refused so. He knew that these same two are going to cause problems and fitnah, and for Imam Ali (عليه السلام) unity of Ummah and the Religion of Prophet (saws) is the the most important thing and his duty as imam to lead people to right path.
  4. The verse literally says what it says: This verse indicates the weakness and mistakes of those who separated themselves away from the Prophet and made groups; the Prophet is being asked to not become affiliated with such parties, as he is the criterion. It surely is not a Sunni view. The concept of Imamate is mentioned many times in Qur'an, it is an covenant. For example Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made Prophet Ibrahim as Imam and that the Imamate comes from his lineage choosed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). This means that if Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wants to make someone Imam (عليه السلام), he must be coming from lineage of Ibrahim (عليه السلام) and he also must be choosed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and that he can not be from wrongdoars. And [mention, O Muhammad], when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [Allah] said, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people." [Abraham] said, "And of my descendants?" [Allah] said, "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers." This verse literally defines the Imamate. It is an Covenant "My covenant ": Imamah: "Leader for the People". By not including the wrongdoers, this exactly means the infallibility is also extended to Imams. This means that any wrongdoer excluded this title. Choosed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) said "I will make you ". From lineage of Ibrahim, because of "And of my descendants?" . The reason why some Shias believe that Imamah is higher in rank than Prophethood is because of this exactly verse: when Abraham was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. Here Ibrahim (عليه السلام) was already prophet and he was tested with higher test and he fullfilled them so God made him Imam because of his fulfilment of these test. I don't get your point. It is you who really don't get it. If Jews and Christians were the right religion in the past, then why God allowed majority of them to misguided and only small sect to be guided? Do you get it now? My argument is that being minority or majority does not prove the sect is right.
  5. It is actually very easy to see the muslim personalities by comparing them with the time of Prophet Muhammad (saws) and after his demise. The great test was after the Prophet where many actually falled, by expansion of land and culture and increase of wealth and power and taking care of Prophet Ahulbayt. Take an example of elites Talha and Zubayr, an early converts who gave their life and wealth to Islam became stingy and love with wealth. Aisha manifested her hate of Ahlulbayt by literally "acting" to kill Imam Ali (عليه السلام), even, when the Prophet clearly have instucted to love, follow and take care of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). It was very hard for the Prophet (saws) to raise and take care of His companions, but the real test was really after his demise, and many of the elites Companions started to follow their desires, and many of them felt that they deserve what they desire, because of how much they have done toward Islam, this was their great sin.
  6. Yes it is possible that the videos could be fake, mostly it is if they try to give bad image about Sistani and his followers. Iraq is already very mess where people literally do evil things openly.
  7. Wa Aleikum Salaam, This is literally Raj'ah: 1. And when you said, ‘O Moses, we will not believe you until we see Allah visibly.’ Thereupon a thunderbolt seized you as you looked on. (55) Then We raised you up after your death so that you might give thanks. (Qur'an, 2:55-56) 2. Or him who came upon a township as it lay fallen on its trellises. He said, ‘How will Allah revive this after its death?!’ So Allah made him die for a hundred years, then He resurrected him. He said, ‘How long have you remained?’ Said he, ‘I have remained a day or part of a day.’ He said, ‘Rather you have remained a hundred years. Now look at your food and drink which have not rotted! Then look at your ass! [This was done] that We may make you a sign for mankind. And look at the bones, how We arrange them and then clothe them with flesh!’ When it became evident to him, he said, ‘I know that Allah has power over all things.’ (Qur'an, 2:259) 3. And when you killed a soul, and accused one another about it—and Allah was to expose what you were concealing— We said, 'Strike him with a piece of it:' thus does Allah revive the dead, and He shows you His signs so that you may exercise your reason. (Qur'an, 2:72-73) 4. Have you not regarded those who left their homes in thousands, apprehensive of death, whereupon Allah said to them, 'Die,' then He revived them? Indeed Allah is gracious to mankind, but most people do not give thanks. (Qur'an, 2:243) 5. When Allah will say, O Jesus son of Mary, remember My blessing upon you and upon your mother, when I strengthened you with the Holy Spirit, so you would speak to the people in the cradle and in adulthood, and when I taught you the Book and wisdom, the Torah and the Evangel, and when you would create from clay the form of a bird, with My leave, and you would breathe into it and it would become a bird, with My leave; and you would heal the blind and the leper, with My leave, and you would raise the dead, with My leave; and when I held off [the evil of] the Children of Israel from you when you brought them manifest proofs, whereat the faithless among them said, ‘This is nothing but plain magic.’ (Qur'an, 5:110)
  8. There is in Quran events where God caused death then later resurrected them back. There are literally people who will taste two lifes and two deaths before day of Judgement: Qur'an 40:11 They will plead, “Our Lord! You made us lifeless twice, and gave us life twice.1 Now we confess our sins. So is there any way out?” Anyway we have mutawatir narration about raj'ah and hundreds of narrations about it. It is essential for Shias to believe in it, but for sunnis it is not.
  9. Do not compare them with some people who predicts things. What strength the believer faith is preparing and observing and not prediction. It is important to have good insights of what is going around, but predictions are like setting something to the stone, like an soothsayer that many times Quran goes against it. The definition of soothsayer is: a person who predicts the future by magical, intuitive, or more rational means. Some event must happen in future but believer will make sure not to put timeline or predictions but he will try to make sure to prepare to recognize it when it happens, he will be certain of it.
  10. Eid Mubarak to all of you dear mu'mins.
  11. Shawwal Moon Crescent 1443 According to the announcement from the office of H. E. Ayatullah Seestani (long may he live) in the holy city of Najaf, Monday 2 May is the last day of the holy month of Ramadhan in the United Kingdom, European, Scandinavian countries and the Middle East. The first day of the blessed Eid al-Fitr will be on Tuesday 3 May 2022 Eid Mubarak Eid prayers will be held at 9am: 75 Brondesbuty Park
  12. Wait for the Sunday, Ayatullah Sistani will inform eid is either Monday or Tuesday.
  13. In the tafasir of Sunnis it was recited by Abu Talib (عليه السلام). But sometimes you need to use reason and come to conclusions that Abu Talib (عليه السلام) was the only Guardian of Prophet Muhammad (saws), so of course it makes logical sense that the Guardian will make sure to perform the nikah and do the ceremony. From the khadijah side it was Waraqa ibn Nawfal. Both Abu Talib (عليه السلام) and waraqah were hanifs who could perfom our Prophet marriage.
