  1. It is an creation of God that support the prophets by God commands, not God Himself.
  2. It is not taught by old testament, rather it is late Christian interpretation of old testament. Before Jesus (عليه السلام) and Christianity, the prophets never taught that what christians inteprate of old testament today.
  3. What is the definition of evil eye is? Is it that the person who cast an evil eye to some other person means that he becomes envy to the person and he start to hate him, planning to cause him destruction and fail? Or is it some kind of powerful effect that the person cast to other such that the other will change in negative way? Or both? Thank you for the great article brother.
  4. Exactly appear rational but they really are not and their arguments can easily refute by rational people but not by people who don't use rational thinking. Unfortunately this is the current trending that make people leave Religion, to make it look absurd.
  5. God is always working for us but it is us who reject Him and disobey that causes us to sin. When it is said to do good deeds, it means to let God help you in guidance and lead you to justice and do not approach the evil. “Allah does not want difficulty for you, but He wants to purify you, and to complete His favor upon you, that you may be grateful.” Quranic verse 5:6
  6. So when Imams (عليه السلام) says that they are the names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), it never even means The names of Allah of absolute. And how could it be because they are only ment for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to regonize Him. It would be wonderful to know the authenticity of the narration, if possible.
  7. As long they respect other Muslims and don’t persecute them because of their different beliefs, that would be fine. Time will tell.
  8. The situation is that he, like many others, is surrounded by people calling themselves Shia but promoting ideas and practices that have no real basis in our religion. It is a general issue in many communities today. Mostly in west this happens where people are biggest talkers but rarely they truly worship and take their religion seriously. The surrounding will see the religion as joke and mostly leave the religion all together.
  9. Brother I hope you don’t think me I’m one of the shia reformist, because I’m truly not.
  10. The sincerity is very admirable for wanting to come close to God when the whole world and shaytan is trying to destroy you from the path of God and take your imaan away, no matter where you belong.
  11. Look! [Only] exclusive faith is worthy of Allah, and those who take guardians besides Him [claiming,] ‘We only worship them so that they may bring us near to Allah,’ Allah will indeed judge between them concerning that about which they differ. Indeed Allah does not guide someone who is a liar and an ingrate. - Of course their problem is that they worshipped the Idols, thinking that doing so will bring them close to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). But this also tells us that people can fall to this type of worshipping, if they take the Imams (عليه السلام) to the extreme love that will take them outside of Islam.
  12. That is a assumption without proof and it is not an fact and you will not find any facts because this is an subjective matter. I can only talk about of my observation and experience is that most people are making basic mistakes in reasoning. Because of this they will have poor understanding about anything and thus they will never find any satisfactory answers in the first place.
  13. I don't have time to continue this discussion because I feel in the end it is just futile. My only advice is that seek more knowledge insha'Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and may God guide us to His right path.
  14. It is not pointless at all if the person have reached after the research and concluded that the teaching of Sunni or Shia or whatever sect is right. All of them are still called Muslims, because they believe in Islam and the principles of Islam. The thing with us is that we all believe in mostly same principles but we differ with their interpretation. I agree with you that they are debatable and does not have same certainty than Qur'an, but some of the narrations do have certainty that can not be rejected. About calling Imam Ali (عليه السلام). I'm in the position that I do not reject or accept the concept, because I really do not understand the whole concept in the first place. So I prefer to call Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) directly and safely which have been showed in Qur'an many times and our Imams (عليه السلام) followed the same steps. Of course there is list where as Shia we believe that the Prophet (saws) did and believed but then Sunnis or others reject it. One is the most important thing is Wilayah of Imam Ali (عليه السلام). Everyone call themselves Muslims. Prophet is not identified as anything of this because everyone was united by the Prophet himself. After Prophet (saws) demise people separated, disunited and formed their own interpretations. If God send us Imam Mehdi (عليه السلام), he will connect all of us and there would be only one sect and all others will be vanished: And say: Truth has now arrived, and Falsehood has perished 17:81
  15. Then what exactly is our problem here then? We have the rule that if narrations contradict the Qur'an then it needs to throw it away. This means that narrations do not have any authority over Qur'an, but Qur'an have authority over narrations.
  16. I don't know how that is supposed to be relevant and reply my points, so I'll pass.
  17. The personal attacking is unnecessary. Lets focus on the issues and discuss about them, he himself can judge if the answers removes his doubts.
  18. So how do you know what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) thinks and cares? You should remind silent if you don't know, because you could fall easily to the following verse: And who is more unjust than he who invents a lie about Allah ? Those will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, "These are the ones who lied against their Lord." Unquestionably, the curse of Allah is upon the wrongdoers. As for example the praying, we have more proof that we are correct and you are wrong. First the reasoning tell us that if Prophet Muhammad (saws) is introducing the prayer to the Muslims, then he also must defined it to us. Second, majority of the Muslims in the time of Prophet Muhammad (saws) observed the ritual actions in prayer and this continued till this day. Third we have historical account and narrations about the existence of these rituals in prayer. What is the proof that as for the praying we don't need to do any ritual act and you can do it freely? If the Prophet (saws) did salat in ritualistic way and so did all the Muslims, how did you come to conclusion that that is not necessary at all. One of the reason to stick to Sunnah of the Prophet, is exactly so that we don't fall to the innovations and our desires to follow what we think is right. [We said], "O David, indeed We have made you a successor upon the earth, so judge between the people in truth and do not follow [your own] desire, as it will lead you astray from the way of Allah." Indeed, those who go astray from the way of Allah will have a severe punishment for having forgotten the Day of Account.
  19. Salaam Aleikum You need to point out the issues you have so you can also discuss it with us. It is pointless to paste a video and not at all join in conversation.
  20. The truth is exactly that what they truly said and happened in reality. We can only investigate from all different perspective and use aql to reach the truth. For example: Iblees knows the truth but out of his envy he reject to follow the command. Or those people who knows that Prophet Muhammad (saws) is right, but because of dislike of commandments of God, they don't want to follow.
  21. Beautiful Iraqi Government, just welcome every oppressor, tyrant and enemy of Islam to our imams (عليه السلام) shrines. No wonder this country will never be blessed like this.
  22. What happens with those people who praises the companions who did apostate or caused grief toward family of the Prophet (saws)? Will they also dealt with accordingly? For example, I'm talking about praising those companions who fall in following category: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Some of my companions will come to me at my Lake Fount, and after I recognize them, they will then be taken away from me, whereupon I will say, 'My companions!' Then it will be said, 'You do not know what they innovated (new things) in the religion after you." Sahih al-Bukhari 6582
  23. So in short, denying in this sense means only if they recognize that Imamah is truth and at same time deny it. But majority of Sunnis do not fall in this category because they do not believe in Imamah in first place (this is what it means they do not recognize it). And the Majority of Sunnis do not have any hatred toward the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام). Those who recognize the Imamah and at the same time deny it have been demonstrated many times in Qur'an. Iblees and Adam, Bani Israel and The Prophets. They know it is the truth but they hate it and they do not want to follow/accept it.
  24. أبي ، عن ابن محبوب ، عن ابن رئاب ، عن ضريس الكناسي ، عن أبي جعفرعليهالسلام قال : قلت له : جعلت فداك ما حال الموحدين المقرين بنبوة محمد صلىاللهعليهوآله من المسلمين المذنبين الذين يموتون وليس لهم إمام ، ولا يعرفون ولايتكم؟ فقال : أما هؤلاء فإنهم في حفرهم لا يخرجون منها فمن كان له عمل صالح ولم يظهر منه عداوة فانه يخد له خدا إلى الجنة التي خلقها الله بالمغرب فيدخل عليه الروح في حفرته إلى يوم القيامة حتى يلقى الله فيحاسبه بحسناته وسيئاته فإما إلى الجنة ، وإما إلى النار ، فهؤلاء الموقوفون لامر الله. قال عليهالسلام : وكذلك يفعل بالمستضعفين والبله والاطفال وأولاد المسلمين ، الذين لم يبلغوا الحلم. وأما النصاب من أهل القبلة فانهم يخد لهم خدا إلى النار التي خلقها الله في المشرق ، فيدخل عليهم اللهب والشرر والدخان ، وفورة الحميم «ثم» بعد ذلك مصيرهم إلى الجحيم «في النار يسجرون * ثم قيل لهم أينما كنتم تشركون من دون الله» (2) أي أين إمامكم الذي اتخذتموه دون الامام الذي جعله الله للناس إماما A man asked Imam al-Baqir [a], "May I be your sacrifice! What is the condition of those who testify in the Oneness of Allah, and submit to the prophethood of Muhammad (s), but are Muslim sinners who die and do not have an Imam and do not know about your wilaya?" The Imam [a] replied, "Regarding these people: they are in their graves and they do not exit from them. Whoever has good deeds and did not show enmity [towards us], then they will be given an opening in their grave that will lead to a Paradise that Allah has created in the West. Their soul will enter it until the Day of Resurrection, where they are judged for their deeds. Then, they will go to Paradise or the Fire. So these are the ones who are accountable to Allah's order. And as for the nasibi from the people of the qibla (Muslims who show hatred for the Ahl al-Bayt and their followers): then they will have an opening to the Fire that Allah has created in the East; and fire, sparks, smoke and the vehemence of boiling water will enter upon them. Then after that, their paths are to Hell." Then, the Imam recited, "Then they shall be burned in the Fire, then it will be said to them, 'where went those whom you used to associate?'" (40:72-73) He [a] explained it, saying, "Meaning, where is your Imam that you associated with the Imam that Allah made for the people?" (Tafsir al-Qummi) عنه، عن أبيه عن النضر، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن ابن مسكان، عن زرارة قال: سئل أبو عبد الله عليه السلام وأنا جالس عن قول الله عز وجل: " من جاء بالحسنة فله عشر أمثالها " يجري لهؤلاء ممن لا يعرف منهم هذا الامر؟ - فقال: إنما هذه للمؤمنين خاصة، قلت له: أصلحك الله أرأيت من صام وصلى واجتنب المحارم وحسن ورعه ممن لا يعرف ولا ينصب؟ - فقال: ان الله يدخل أولئك الجنة برحمته Whoever comes with a good deed will have ten times the like thereof " (6:160) A man asked Imam as-Sadiq [a] about this verse, "Does this apply to those who do not know this Order (wilaya)?" So the Imam replied, "This is for the believers only." The man said, "May Allah rectify you, what about those who fast, pray, abstain from the forbidden, are pious, but do not know about this Order and do not hate the Ahl al-Bayt and their followers (yunassib)?" So the Imam replied, "Allah will enter those people into Paradise by His grace." (al-Mahasin)
  25. علي بن إبراهيم عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن عبد الرحمن بن الحجاج، عن هاشم صاحب البريد قال: كنت أنا ومحمد بن مسلم وأبو الخطاب مجتمعين فقال لنا أبو الخطاب: ما تقولون فيمن لم يعرف هذا الامر؟ فقلت: من لم يعرف هذا الامر فهو كافر، فقال أبو الخطاب: ليس بكافر حتى تقوم عليه الحجة، فإذا قامت عليه الحجة فلم يعرف فهو كافر، فقال له محمد بن مسلم: سبحان الله ماله إذا لم يعرف ولم يجحد يكفر؟! ليس بكافر إذا لم يجحد، قال: فلما حججت دخلت على أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) فأخبرته بذلك، فقال: إنك قد حضرت و غابا ولكن موعدكم الليلة، الجمرة الوسطى بمنى. فلما كانت الليلة اجتمعنا عنده وأبو الخطاب ومحمد بن مسلم فتناول وسادة فوضعها في صدره ثم قال لنا: ما تقولون في خدمكم ونساءكم وأهليكم أليس يشهدون أن لا إله إلا الله؟ قلت: بلى، قال: أليس يشهدون أن محمدا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله)؟ قلت: بلى، قال: أليس يصلون ويصومون ويحجون؟ قلت: بلى، قال: فيعرفون ما أنتم عليه؟ قلت: لا، قال: فما هم عندكم؟ قلت: من لم يعرف [ هذا الامر ] فهو كافر. قال: سبحان الله أما رأيت أهل الطريق وأهل المياه؟ قلت: بلى، قال: أليس يصلون ويصومون ويحجون؟ اليس يشهدون أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله قلت: بلى، قال: فيعرفون ما أنتم عليه؟ قلت: لا، قال: فما هم عندكم؟ قلت: من لم يعرف [ هذا الامر ] فهو كافر. قال: سبحان الله أما رأيت الكعبة والطواف وأهل اليمن وتعلقهم بأستار الكعبة! قلت: بلى، قال: أليس يشهدون أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) ويصلون ويصومون ويحجون؟ قلت: بلى، قال: فيعرفون ما أنتم عليه، قلت: لا قال: فما تقولون فيهم؟ قلت: من لم يعرف فهو كافر. قال: سبحان الله هذا قول الخوارج، ثم قال: إن شئتم أخبرتكم، فقلت أنا: لا (1)، فقال: أما إنه شر عليكم أن تقولوا بشئ ما لم تسمعوه منا، قال: فظننت أنه يديرنا على قول محمد بن مسلم. A man was sitting with Muhammad b. Muslim and Abu'l Khattab. Abu'l Khattab said, "What do you say regarding those who do not recognize this Order (Imamate)?" The man said, "Whoever does not recognize this Order is a disbeliever." Abu'l Khattab said, "He is not a disbeliever until he is presented with proof. When he is presented with proof, and he does not recognize it, then he is a disbeliever." So Muhammad b. Muslim said to him, "May Allah be glorified! Why would he be a disbeliever if he does not recognize nor deny it? He would not be a disbeliever unless he denies it [outright]." So when the man performed Hajj, he visited Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq [a] and told him about the conversation. So the Imam said, "You are here, but they are absent. So [all of you must] come to me tonight at the middle pillar in Mina." When night fell, the man, Abu'l Khattab, and Muhammad b. Muslim met the Imam. The Imam took a pillow and held it against his chest. Then, he said to them, "What do you say regarding your servants, your women, and your parents? Do they not bear witness that there is no god except Allah?" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they not bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah?" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they not pray, fast, and go on Hajj?" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they recognize what you are upon (wilaya)?" The man said, "No." The Imam said, "So what are they to you?" The man said, "Whomever does not recognize this Order is a disbeliever." The Imam said, "May Allah be glorified! Do you not see the people on the streets and the waterbearers?" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they not pray, fast and go on Hajj? Do they not bear witness that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah?" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they recognize what you are upon?" The man said, "No." The Imam said, "So what are they to you?" The man said, "Whomever does not recognize this Order is a disbeliever." The Imam said, "May Allah be glorified! Have you not seen the Ka`ba, the circumambulation, the people of Yemen and their clinging onto the cloth of the Ka`ba?!" The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they not bear witness that there is no god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah? Do they not pray, fast and go on Hajj? " The man said, "Of course." The Imam said, "Do they recognize what you are upon?" The man said, "No." The Imam said, "So what are they to you?" The man said, "Whomever does not recognize this Order is a disbeliever." The Imam said, "May Allah be glorified! This is the saying of the Khawarij. If you want, I will tell you [their status]." The man said, "No." The Imam said, "Surely, it is evil for you to say something that you have not heard from us." The man narrated: So I gathered that he was turning us toward the opinion of Muhammad b. Muslim. (al-Kafi, Volume 2, page 401)
