  1. Yes it is exactly these two factors that make us to deserve to get reward for following the obligations and all that which is good. I believe generally human beings who have faith in God and who realize our nature is to follow goodness and do goodness will have deserved reward of heaven. I also believe anyone who follow goodness sincerely will always reach God, because they will realize that goodness is from God.
  2. Full of corruption and bribing, killing innocent migrant workers and there is even slavery allegations. Extravagant cost of about US$220 billion.

  4. I don't think so. The article does make only sense if Nato sees that attacking will benefit themselves, but in this case it will be very risky. They have already said they don't want to invade Russia, so mostly they will keep it as proxy war.
  5. This Qur'an verse prophecies the state of Christianity till to Judgement day: Sahih International: And from those who say, "We are Christians" We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded. So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do. 5:14
  6. On 21 November 2019, he was indicted on charges of breach of trust, bribery and fraud.[16] Due to the indictment, Netanyahu was legally required to relinquish all of his ministry posts other than the prime minister position prior to his his ousting. Now he is back, nice government.
  7. Evidence based on experimental physics gives more weigh to understand the behavior of our physical world than theoretical ones. So the more information (data) we get from experiments the more the theory of beginning of universe will get more accurate. It is possible that this could happen. I recommend to search physicist professors opinions about this matter or ask them if that is possible. I would never take anything seriously from YouTube science videos, because often they are misinformed.
  8. Salaam Aleikum, Having something to accompany to help them in their prophetic and imamah mission does not mean they suddenly have the task to take care of universe and give riszk to the creations and create new creations.
  9. The intended meaning is simple, and it surely is not about miracles given by the Prophets (عليه السلام) and Imams(عليه السلام), but universal tasks and delegation of authority giving to them where they make sure to give sustanance, create etc by permission of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to handle the universe. This is very weird belief to give to human beings when in reality these tasks are given to angels to handle.
  10. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) reward you and all those who helped you for this great translation work. It will bring me so much happiness to read the narrations of Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام).
  11. It does for some country, for example Finland is good example. In the time of occulation, it is us the Muslims that should develop a System where we can not only secure our religion and faith but also progress intellectually and progress in all different fields that help us to develop ourselves and our society. If we are stuck then we need to change to better and not be in same loop forever. I really do not know and even doubt that Scholars themselves can solve this matter, rather the task should always be given to all those Muslims in general who have good ideas and ways to progress the society in better way. Secular Democracy itself is only good for people who care about the society progress as much it is consider of this worldy life, but we Muslims need to go beyond it, where we consider both success.
  12. Yes we are, thats why it does not make any sense to be called shia while not rafidi.
  13. The brother was very precise when he used word rafidi. Rafidi is a kafir in their beliefs. But they will say not all shias are rafidi and thus the ignorant shias are not necessary kafir. http://www.shiapen.com/comprehensive/creed-of-shia-explained/fitnah-of-takfeer.html How can someone becomes a kafir if they believe some sahaba were disbelievers like it is clearly mentioned in Qur'an?
  14. The hadith says that God gave delegation to Prophet Muhammad (saws) about the affairs of religion, this itself is a permission from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) but He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) did not gave him delegation over the affairs of creation and rizq.
  15. There is reason why I do believe this belief originated from Ghulat sect and it is not original, from Sheikh Mufid (رضي الله عنه) he said: The adherents of the doctrine of delegation (al-Mufawwidah) are a group of extremists who are distinguished from the others by their peculiar claim that though the Imãms are created, originated beings, and not eternal, yet they ascribe to them creation and sustaining. It is impossible that our great classical scholars could get this wrong when they did have most of the sources and knowledge about Shia Islam. This can tell me one thing, that it is possible that some people exaggerated our Imams (عليه السلام) abilities. So this leave me to believe that this delegation of creation and rizq is totally wrong. But not all delegations are wrong. For example Prophet Muhammad (saws) got an delegation of affairs of religion. We have following hadith that talks about two type of delegation, one is correct and one is wrong: (Imam al-Rida (عليه السلام) answer directly from the Qur'an) حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه ره قال حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم عن أبيه عن ياسر الخادم قال قلت للرضا ع ما تقول في التفويض فقال إن الله تبارك و تعالى فوض إلى نبيه ص أمر دينه فقال ما آتاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَ ما نَهاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانْتَهُوا فأما الخلق و الرزق فلا ثم قال ع إن الله عز و جل يقول اللَّهُ خالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ و هو يقول اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ رَزَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ هَلْ مِنْ شُرَكائِكُمْ مَنْ يَفْعَلُ مِنْ ذلِكُمْ مِنْ شَيْ‏ءٍ سُبْحانَهُ وَ تَعالى‏ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ‏ From Yāsir, the servant, said, I said to al-Riḍā (عليه السلام), ‘What do you say about al-Tafwīd?’ And he (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (تبارك و تعالى), delegated (fawwaḍa) to His prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) affairs of His religion’, and He said: “Take whatever the Messenger gives to you, and deny for yourself whatever he prohibits” (59:7). As for (delegating) the creation and sustenance, then No! He (عليه السلام) said: ‘Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) says “Allāh is the creator of all things’ (3:16) and He says “It is Allāh, He has created you, then He has given you sustenance, then He has made you die, then He has brought you back to life, are there any of your partners who can does of that any of these things? Glory be to Allāh, and High is He from the partners (they attribute)” (30:40) Source: al-Sadooq, `Uyoon al-Akhbaar, vol. 2, ch. 46, pg. 202-203, hadeeth # 3 And then this hadeeth say that whoever believes in tafweed is a Mushrik. القائل بالجبر كافر و القائل بالتفويض مشرك He (عليه السلام) said: 'the believer of al-Jabr is a kaafir, and the believer in tafweed is a Mushrik' Source: al-Sadooq, `Uyoon al-Akhbaar, vol. 1, ch. 11, pg. 124, hadeeth # 17 (salam)
  16. طرائف المقال - السيد علي البروجردي - ج ٢ هامش ص ٣٥٧ Taraiful Maqal by Ayatullah Burujerdi, Volume 2, Footnote on page 357 by Allama Syed Mehdi Rijai ففي الصحيح عن عبد الله بن مسكان قال: دخل حجر بن زائدة وعامر بن خزاعة الأزدي على أبي عبد الله عليه السلام فقال له: جعلنا فداك ان المفضل بن عمر يقول: أنكم ترزقون ارزاق العباد، إلى أن قال: لعنه الله وأبرز منه قال: أفنلعنه ونتبرء منه؟ قال: نعم It has been reported in a sahih (authentic) hadith (in Rijal Kashi, Volume 2, Page 614) from Abdullah b. Muskan, who said: Hajar b. Zaidah and Aamir b. Khaza'a al Azdi entered upon abi Abdullah (عليه السلام) and said to him: "May we be your ransom, indeed al Mufadal b. Umar says that you people (i.e. the Imams) provide rizq (sustenance/blessings) to the people."......Imam (عليه السلام) said: "Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) la'nah (damnation) be on him, I dissociate from him." Narrator asked: "Should we also say la'nah on him and dissociate from him?" Imam (عليه السلام) said: "Yes!" جاء في كتاب رجال "الكشي ص 225 " قول جعفر بن محمد الصادق : ( فو الله ما نحن إلا عبيد الذي خلقنا واصطفانا ، وما نقدر على ضر ولا نفع ، وإن رُحمنا فبرحمته ، وإن عُذبنا فبذنوبنا ، والله مالنا على الله حجة ولا معنا من براءة ، وإنا لميتون ومقبورون ومنشورون ومبعوثون وموقوفون ومسؤولون ، ويلهم مالهم لعنهم الله فقد آذوا الله وآذوا رسوله في قبره وأمير المؤمنين وفاطمة والحسن والحسين وعلي بن الحسين ومحمد بن علي صلوات الله أشهدكم أني امرؤ ولدني رسول الله وما معي براءة من الله إن أطعته رحمني وإن عصيته عذبني عذابا شديدا It has been reported in Rijal Kashi (Page 225) that Imam Ja'far al Sadiq (عليه السلام) said: "By Allah! We are not but slaves of the one who created us and chose us, and we do not have control over (any) harm or benefit, and if we are shown mercy so it is by His rahmah (mercy/grace), and if we are punished then it is due to our own sins, by Allah we do not have a hujjah (overwhelming argument) upon Allah (to hold Him obliged) and no means of prevention from His turning (His mercy) away, and indeed we will definitely die, be buried, be gathered/spread out (on qiyamah), resurrected, raised and questioned. Torment/disaster be for them! What is wrong with them?! Allah ((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى))'s la'nah (damnation) be on them! (i.e. on those who claim otherwise) They have certainly hurt (angered) Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), His prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) in his grave, Ali, Fatima, Hasan, Hussain, Zainul Abideen and al Baqir. Be witness you people that I have ordered my progeny of the prophet((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)), and none is with me (to protect) from bar'ah (dissociation) of Allah. If I obey Him then He will bless me and if I disobey Him then He will severely punish me."
  17. It really shows that wahhabism is dead or dying. In the narrations Medinah will be in ruins and this is first step to allow such a thing to happen. A corrupted family who goes ageinst the Islamic values and will totally corrupt the holy lands and submit to the will of Israel.
  18. Delegation of authority can be easily seen with angels (عليه السلام) and even prophets (عليه السلام) and Imams (عليه السلام) . Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) choosing them to do His work is itself delegation of authority. But what exactly this authority includes is something that scholars have different opinions on it. Myself I can only believe in what Qur'an and sahih hadiths have described about it with certainty.
  19. Have any prophet (عليه السلام) or Imams (عليه السلام) given any such a power to manage the world and the affairs of the world prior the Prophet Muhammad (saws)? Are managing the world affairs the jobs of the Prophets and Imams? In the Qur'an it is clearly described what is their jobs and it is about to establish justice and the laws of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), judge, forgive and guide people to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) way by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will. It is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who manage the affairs of all existence.
  20. Qur'an 004-027. And Allah desires that He should turn to you (mercifully), and those who follow (their) lusts desire that you should deviate (with) a great deviation.
  21. So Russia is not oppressor in this war? In this war both of them are oppressor and the innocent civilians are the oppressed. In this situation you don't send weapons or army to make the civilians more oppressed. The only right thing to do is the peace talk (which Russia have been asking and Ukraine rejected because of the US) and Russia should give all the taken lands back and Ukraine should become neutral state. As for the narration you showed, no where it implies that we have rights to go and fight non-muslim wars where we are with the oppressed. In Wasā’il al-Shī’a we have the tradition from Imam Bāqir: إذا قام یبطل ما کان فی الهدنه ممّا کان فی أیدی النّاس و یستقبل بهم العدل When the Imam rises, he shall nullify what was being practised by the people during the era of truce and spread justice. Allāmah Majlisī in explaining this term says the following: حال الهدنه حال المصالحه مع ائمه الجور و ترک معارضتهم و التقیه معهم بامر الله للمصلحه The period of truce [refers to] conciliation with the oppressive rulers and abandoning any confrontations with them, and practising dissimulation with them for expediency. - Trying to make peace between both side is the only correct thing to do.
