    Alhamdulilah. If the wind direction was different I wouldve been dead. The wind blew a construction crane into the opposing building. No one was injured.

    Define reality? How can it be define. For convincing about Allah, it is because some people understand it differently and sometimes different understanding is needed. Then there are people who don't care. I don't understand what is this hustle about why people can't easily get that God is Reality.

    Why do you think he is playing word games, lol. How can someone be blind of reality? Everyone accept there is reality. It is the only and same reality that can't be doubt or defined. It is the only and same reality that allows all the definition of things to manifest. If there have always been creations, then there have always been one reality and if there have been none creation, then there have always been one reality. Everything depends on it, and reality does not depend on anything.

    Salams,
    أعظَمَ اللهُ اجورَنا بمُصابِنا بِالحُسَینِ، وَ جَعَلَنا و ایّاکُم مِنَ الطّالِبینَ بِثارِهِ مَع وَلیّهِ الامامِ المَهدیِّ مِن آلِ مُحَمَّد
    The Imams encourage us to pretend to cry if we are unable to, while this practice in its ritualized manner isn't ancient -- first practiced publicly in Iraq in the 1830s -- it isn't out of line considering that. The diversity of mourning traditions as long as they are within Sharia are a way people practice their walayah and disparaging it isn't a good thing I'd think.
     
    @786:) I had written a post about this last year on a thread which is unfortunately unable to be accessed currently, if I can I'll share what I wrote there. Though what Br. Sumerian has here shared was part of it and is a good demonstration that what is within the realm of what is shar'an permissible shouldn't be disparaged, and coming in with the value judgement of "promote matam or self inflicting physical abuse" when you're asking about this is decidedly insincere.

    Abu Nur reacted to Qa'im in Husband likes to masturbate   
    It is a sin. I can say that virtually every man struggles with it at some point. It is better that he acknowledges the sin than being in denial about it. Not just the masturbation, but the gazing at strange women and the normalization of zina. It is an industry that destroys lives, so it’s hardly “harmless.”
    It is in no way the wife’s fault. But if you love your husband, there are ways of helping him wean off this sin. The first is having him acknowledge that it is indeed a sin. Then he can find ways to limit his alone time with such devices (leaving computers/phones in common rooms). Some men masturbate to fill a sexual void — the primary reason for nikah is to exit the state of sin that bachelorhood naturally creates, so regular sexual relations would be a function of marriage, and it is a wife’s duty to not deny her husband’s advances (unless there are extenuating circumstances). Even mut’a would be preferable to masturbation, but I’m not necessarily recommending that as the solution (as it can create other problems). You should encourage him to open up about what he wants, and try to be patient with the answer. It could be a superficial problem, or it could be a foundational one.

    Abu Nur reacted to Sumerian in Matam   
    This is a hadith with a reliable chain:
    قال (عليه السلام): كل الجزع و البكاء مكروه سوى الجزع و البكاء على الحسين (عليه السلام).
    He (عليه السلام) said: Every jaza (extreme grief) and crying is makrouh except jaza and crying on Al-Husayn (عليه السلام).
    __
    Now, what is jaza? 
    In another hadith Al-Baqir (عليه السلام) defines as follows:
    الإمام الباقر(عليه السلام) الجزع بقوله: (أشدّ الجزع: الصراخ بالويل والعويل، ولطم الوجه والصدر
    The most extreme jaza: Screaming by wailing, and the beating of the face and the chest.
    Also, not to mention the historical reports that mention the beating of the face that was practiced by the womenfolk of Imam Al-Husayn (عليه السلام) after his death. They were affirmed by Al-Sadiq (عليه السلام) in a hadith.

    This is natural form of grief that can be experienced when the heart feels sincerely grief. That is fine. But having a circle of people doing their regular matam is mostly just fake or forced.

    Abu Nur reacted to Revert1963 in Now, Hear Me Out...   
    Where I live the biggest and most beautiful mosque is a Shia mosque. It is open to all who wants to pray in it regardless of what country they are from. Even Sunnis and non-Muslims are welcome. The times I have been there I have always had a good experience from the mosque. This is of cause not a mosque that was build along ethnic lines as so many mosques in Europe are. I think maybe because ethnic Shia groups in my country are so small they formed a collective association for the aim of building a common mosque. This also means that it is not so intimidating for a convert to come there because the mosque doesn't equal a particular ethnic culture. I think there is also a smaller Shia mosque in an old warehouse that is particular for Shia of Pakistani origin but I have never been there.

    Abu Nur reacted to Ibn Al-Ja'abi in Why did the Prophet marry a 9 year old?   
    Yes but the exact understanding of what sort of Shi'a he was referring to remains ambiguous especially since the scholars of our Ta'ifa said differently and that fact remains obvious in our books.
    Yes, I believe I had said that such a disagreement existed a few posts back either on this page or the first. Nevertheless, neither of these equate to the Sunni view of her being born ten or seven years younger than what our historians and traditionists say. 
    The question remains what is the quality of evidence for and against her age being nine about the time her marriage was consummated. In the case of against we rely on interpollating individual evidence, which is often estimations as Sunni historians point out and therefore defeats the purpose. While on the other hand from her and within our own books we have it said she was nine (or ten as it is in al-Kafi). Yes, the khabr in al-Kafi isn't a hadith, it's from the ghayr Ma'sum son of Imam al-Sadiq but nevertheless it shows that this age was understood within Shii circles. While she herself remains accused of lying she might be corroborated in this case, what the Prophet had done wouldn't have contradicted our fiqh or Arab mores that this was worth something fabricating, and the question for why she would have fabricated it remains open.

    The drama comes from religious fanatics and atheists.  In reality there is only reality which is undefinable and limitless.  Everyone who thinks they know reality or can define reality has in fact mistook reality for something limited (or finite).

    I don't believe in this. Read the letter Imam Husayn wrote to Mu'awiyah, recorded in Rijal al-Kashi to see what Imam Husayn actually thought about Mu'awiyah and the fact that he was very much willing to fight against him and believed it would be the best thing he could have done.

    Abu Nur reacted to Ibn al-Hussain in What was achieved out of Karbala?   
    Because justice, freedom and reform in the eyes of Imam Husayn (a) means the implementation of Shari'ah Law and trying to remove someone from power who was busy drinking alcohol and sleeping with women (a moral norm in the West and an instance of justice and freedom). I don't see Who is Hussain making it clear that Husayn's mission of "justice" and "reform" meant a ban on alcohol, punishment for adultery and fornication, and implementing Shari'ah Law.

    Salams,
    Which narrations? Could you quote them along with their sources, please. It'd be necessary seeing all historians seem to suggest that they were both child-brides by today's standards since, at least in the instance of Aisha, we have direct testimony of her age when she was married and consummated by the Prophet while evidence for her being older is often more unreliable as it requires the corroborations of several individual pieces of information which can, at times, just be nothing better than estimations. While I personally think there could be an argument that these reports of Aisha's age aren't as reliable as we'd think, a friend of mine is writing a PhD thesis using the Isnad-cum-Matn analysis to analyse the traditions on Aisha and demonstrate them to be a Kufan fabrication. I haven't read his work since he's still writing it so as it stands the evidence seems to be in the favour of her very young age. Sayyida Fatima being around that age is more certain, though, based off the historical sources. I'm especially curious which narrations exist stating Sayyida Fatima was older, please share.
