  1. What was the issue to ask the Qadhi? Was is Imamat of Ali (عليه السلام), Khumus, temporary marriage, Tarawih prayers, issue of differences or any other issues such as Tawheed, Prophethood, Qiamat?
  2. Salam, Don't tell your past dark history to anyone from now on. If you don't tell, no one knows about. After all you already seek repentance and regretted about it. Keep whatever your past dark history as a secret that is locked into strong metal box. Make sure to destroy the key. Put the box in a deepest sea. Don't look or reach that box again. Meaning you will not return to your past haram actions again and will not tell anyone about. Think positive about Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) always accept sincere repentance. Repentance is one of the many keys to be true slave of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Only Iblis not capable of making repentance after making sins, and Iblis turned in Syaitan. Wallahualam
  3. Salam, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) allows the self to excel above all creation and gives all the opportunities to do so. The self must pay attention to what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has revealed, otherwise it will be in loss. As an example...Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) said Shakir 103:1] I swear by the time,[Shakir 103:2] Most surely man is in loss,[Shakir 103:3] Except those who believe and do good, and enjoin on each other truth, and enjoin on each other patience.
  4. No everything. (I just want to share my understanding on this issue. And i maybe wrong). In term of believe and trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), and submission to His Directives...we have free wills in this issue. On the hand (other than the belief) Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has pre-determined for every person the worldly path that is good for the person to undertake. Everyone is different and has unique and important role. A person may be born as an Arab, Chinese, Indian, male/female, able/disable body or other characteristics by Wills of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gives everyone certain level of talents, basic understanding, uniqueness ...and so. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has determined the worldly path for each person so it would be easier for him to undertake. He would not overburden anyone. A person has the free wills to discover what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has for him/her, accept it, be satisfied. It's all depends on individual. A Prophet has predetermined worldly path, and he has to firmly believe, persevere undertake that path with all difficult tests and be satisfied with Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) All Prophets were chosen ones. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Just. He already prepares the best predetermined path (together with all the tests to achieve it);for all humans based on individual abilities and capacities. It is good to always ask Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to show what we should be as long as we live on this world. We need a firm belief and trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and the system that He has prepared for us to follow. Let us fulfill the role that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wants us to be, pass the tests and be thankful to Him. Wallahualam Layman.
  5. Salam to All, Finally, the Malaysian's version of Salam Farmande is available on YouTube today (3:15;pm) on Arbaeen. https://youtu.be/GIPac9W_MFQ Layman Malaysia
  6. Alaikum salaam, As long as Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), all Angels and all Mukminin have approved the path then it must be the right one. All Muslims must make salawat to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and His Family (عليه السلام), if not their daily prayers will not accepted. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and all Angels, and Mukminjn make salawat. Salawat contain Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Muhammad and Aale Muhammad (عليه السلام). Not just Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), but all 3 realities in one phrase. Therefore, the path toward Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) through Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Aale Muhammad (عليه السلام), is absolutely correct. To be a Mukmin, a person must make the salawat part of his way of life, believe in Tawheed of Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), Nubuwwah of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imamah of Aale Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). Wallahualam Layman
  7. Salam to All, This is my understanding: innā li-llāhi wa-ʾinnā ʾilayhi rājiʿūna ("We surely belong to Allah and to Him we shall return”). Salawat facilitates the return of our Souls/Nafs to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in the approved way (true spirit of Quran). 1. Salawat contains "Allah, Muhammad and Wa Aale Muhammad ", Tawhid, Nubuwwah and Imamah, all 3 in one. If these 3 pillars stick to our heart, the ordinary souls/ Nafs will transform into purified souls to a certain level. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) will wrap/guide our souls/nafs to return to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) through meaningful Salawat. 2. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is beyond description. He created Ruh (spirit). When the Ruh enters a physical body (or any creation), the body becomes alive and obeys the rules of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) creates human souls (spirits with free wills) and put these souls in alive physical body (that He already put Ruh in). The ordinary souls need Purified or Pure Souls to guide for these Souls/Nafs to return to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created Purified Souls (Nubuwwah and Imamah) and put His Holy Names in them (Qur'an embedded in them). These Purified souls can be united with all other ordinary Souls through Salawat, and this unity will purify those ordinary souls. Salawat is THE Most Important MEAN to purify ordinary souls on their journey to return to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). It unites the Purified souls to our souls. 3. Salawat will lift up our souls (not our body) to that position where Adam (عليه السلام) was originally was (the true world) before he was brought down to this lower (veiled) world. At that point of height, we will see Allah'(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) True Government that rules all Creation. We will witness the Absolute Authority of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) over everything. We are united with all other purified Souls from Adams. That is the reason Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made it wajib for Himself (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), all Angels and all Mukminin to make salawat. It is not the just sending blessings, it is to purify our souls so we return to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in guided way. Even Angels need to perform Salawat. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) sending salawat because The Purified Souls contains His Holy Names, and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is blessing His Holy Names, so more Mercy will rain down on His Servants. Wallahualam Layman.
  8. As long as Muslims really stick to " La illaha illallah, Muhammadur Rasulullah ", we should try to unite, at least against the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), and let everyone follow what they believe in their mazhab. The Zionist, US and EU are targeting muslims, we need unity now, more that ever. Imamah will grow regardless of what happen to Sunni/Shia/muslim population. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) had differences with few prominent sahabahs, but he never unite with enemies of Islam (Abu Sufyan..). Wallahualam
  9. Salam What Imam Ali (عليه السلام) did has been documented that muslims during his time were not able to do. Imam (عليه السلام) showed how to lead a balance life spiritually and duniawi wise. Ask to all Sunnis, what have they done now in 25 years? What do we do in 25 years of our life? Compare that to Imam Ali (عليه السلام). Wallahualam.
  10. Salam, Always be grateful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in all circumstances that we are in. When asking for hajaat from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), don't dictate Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) on the outcome to be our way. Trust Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Be grateful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) that we are allowed to ask for hajaat from Him. Be able to realize that we are directly communicating to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in the form of duas to Him is already a great achievement. Do we realize that to whom that we are addressing our hajaat to??? Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the Rabbil Aalameen! Wallahualam
  11. Salam, I am grateful because i have to read surah Al-Fatiha on daily basis. It opens up new perspectives in the way i have to face life everytime i read it. We start the surah (after Bismillah..), by thanking Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) because of His Attributes. Then we have to be with Rasulullah(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and His Ahlulbayt(عليه السلام) and not with those Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has forbid us to associate with, in our journey to return to Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Mercy. With the Opening Surah (al Fatiha)...enable me to live and be grateful. Wallahualam
  12. Salam, We always say "والله أعلمُ ".. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows and hears everything that all human communications and their prayers duas. And Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can let anyone to know what HE knows or hears. Or HE can block what He knows/hears from others to know. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) instantaneously bestowed Adam (عليه السلام) with knowledge that Angels don't have, and why couldn't Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) give that abilities to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Imams(عليه السلام)? Wallahualam
  13. Salam, Are our Prophet and Imams serve as means to reach or worship Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)? Can i say that my Prophet/Imams are cut off from me now? And they are not my Wali? With this belief, will Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) accept my worship? Or their connection to me serve as mean to worship Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)? Yes or No? Why our Prophet is called "Rasulullah"? It that to show our Messenger is always connected to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Why Imams are Waliyullah? It that to show our Imams are always connected to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)? Wallahualam.
  14. Salam, Giving salawat to the Prophet and His Family (Ahlulbayt) is a Tawassul. Belief in Nubuwwah and Imamah is a Tawassul. Remembering of Imam Hussain and His Followers and tragedy of Karbala is a Tawassul. Waiting for Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) eagerly is a Tawassul. All the above are means. The means of getting closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). We don't worship the means, we need the means, as the means will lead us to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Not sending salawat to the Prophet will result in there is no mean to reach Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Because salawat is part of Sholat (prayer), and sholat is a worship. No salawat means no complete sholat. Our body, aqal, intelligent, nafs are means for us getting closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). All of us are means to get closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). But humans can chose to be the mean or not? Quran and Ahlulbayt are most important means of getting closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or worshipping Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Wallahualam
  15. Salam, My understanding. The verses show the difference between PROTECTOR and Protected. Infallibility of Prophet falls under protected. All his actions were under protected plans and procedures for reasons that would benefits other humans. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is source of all Protections. Wallahualam.
