  1. Salam, I believe taking the vaccine for Covid19 is personal issue eventhough almost everyone is affected. There are so many unclear issues behind Covid19 and the vaccines. Since, i believe that everyone has access to Imam of our time and he is the Ulil-Amr, make sincere initiatives to seek his advise for our individual sake. Take or not to take the vaccine. Our Imam (عليه السلام) will tell us on the effective (the individual not for others) method to avoid Covid19 specific to us. In other words, the crisis will make us closer to our Imam. It doesn't mean we ignore scient
  2. Salam, Rasul (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is the City of knowledge and Ali (عليه السلام) is the gate. Where to get the knowledge, even now,...we ever need more knowledge from the Prophet and Imams. Especially the interpretation of Quran that relevant to our time. Can we forget the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ali (عليه السلام), since the City of knowledge and the gate are all physically dead and not attached to us now, we will be deprived to that knowledge. Ok ok, I understand...we go straight to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and ask for that knowledge!!!!, since t
  3. Salamu alaikum, All the surrounding mosques where I live adhere to Sunni Mazhab. My friends, fellow workers, and fellow Muslims are Shafi'i followers. When i am in the mosque, my prayer actions look exactly like others from the outside. From the inside, no one else knows what is going. No even my fellow shias know what inside, only from the outside. I don't bring attention to Sunnis on myself.
  4. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the creator of everything. Whatever He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created are inferior to Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)...that include the universe, us and everything that we can see or not. Since "inferior than Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) " is the nature of all creations, then there exist inferior world that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) made for them. In addition, inferiority cannot be equal to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).
  5. Salam, If it is not because of syafaat of Rasulullah ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) and Imams (عليه السلام) to us, we are all doomed. We lack so much in serving Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), even in our prayer. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) doesn't punish us yet because of Ahlulbayt. The Captain and Top Crews of the boat are performing, the rest of passengers get chances to reach the destination. It is time for us to read more Salawats and getting closer to Ahlulbayt so that we will know on how to correctly serve Allahbswt.
  6. Salam, Keep writing Brothers... i really enjoy reading it and learning too. When Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) decided to create us, He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) said that "we are from Him and we are returning to Him" (Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajiuun). Because we have been created, there exist duality. It is up to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) on how long the process of returning to Him will take place. Even if are in heaven and enjoying His Blessings, the process of returning doesn't end there yet. As long as the process of return is on going, duality exist. Whe
  7. Bro, i only know a little bit on this end and the interface to the other End. Nothing that i know on the nature of the "End". I am not able to put a category on the nature of God. I can only say, He is the Rabb and i just a slave. The belief is more toward Tauheed. I believe that Only God can make us understand Him at very much individual level. I believe only Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) understand God at the highest level. Level of understanding God is not the same for all humans. Maybe others can have better explanation.
  8. Salam, Interesting discussion. I have no problems with Zaidi's belief because end of day, it will go back to the main source, which is Ahlulbayt. Differences can be resolved if we are willing to go back to the main source. I have no problems with Zaidi followers on not believing on 12 Imams because they maintain respect to those 12 Imams. Correct me if I am wrong. Zaidi followers will accept a Leader (like Imam Khomeini), as long as the leader is following the belief and instructions of those stated in 33:33 (those whom Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has purified). On
  9. Salam, God created Holy Names with Holy Attributes to interface with His other creations. The "God" is beyond description and beyond imagination. It is good enough for His creations to interface with His Holy Names. God allowed his creations to call or communicate to Him through His Holy Names. We can describe God using His Holy Names, because that is the level that we can achieve. But His Holy Names are still not GOD, because Holy Names are created by God. Our understanding cannot and unable to go beyond the level of His Holy Names. That my understanding...
  10. Salam, I believe if a person is willing to work hard, get good education or special skills that make themselves valuable to the society, they can live anywhere in the world. I am one of those who don't wish to stay or live in the US. But, i was in the US for 13 years. Many temptations for me stay, and people said that i am crazy for not to stay in the US. For my Bachelor degree, i got scholarship from Malaysia government. For my MSc and PhD, I decided to work and pay for my education as a foreigner in Midwest, USA. It was difficult. I was offered a job as an engineer after i fini
  11. Salam, Cautions must be made. Agreed. I even having hard time to digest that Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) will physically perform funeral for Imam Mahdi (as written in the article). The information written in the link sometimes quite difficult to understand. For the sake of reading to understand what others have written, i think is okay. My understanding of raj'a is totally different. What will happen after Imam Mahdi reappeared and established the justice on earth, and he will eventually die (just like all other Imams). Who will succeed him. Or will Qiyamah occur immediate
  12. I am not sure how to condense it, but I will put as to my understanding. After Imam Mahdi come and establish the religion according to what Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has given to the Prophet, he will be killed. (2/3 of total human,population on the earth will be killed or perish in wars) So who will rule after his martyrdom because the life of people will still exist. The earth cannot exist without an Imam. So the doctrine of Raj'a (return) of past Imams to continue ruling the earth and leftover humans after martyrdom of Imam Mahdi is justified according to narrations. Since the
  13. Salam, Thank you for the link. I read the pdf. We all know that the world will not end until the 12th Imam has established justice. We know that even there is one more day left for the earth to survive, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will extend that day until Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) comes and established the justice. In that pdf, the scenario is that after Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) established the justice, the earth will still be lots of people and Imams and Prophets of the past will return to establish justice. It will be for long time. So how to reconcile?
  14. People might ask, how is it possible that Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) perform the funeral for Imam Mahdi(عليه السلام)?
  15. I believe Qiyamah will occur after all humans already dead but the physical earth is still exist. Just before Qiyamah occur, all those who have firmed belief on Qiyamah (including oppressed people) and those who have denied Qiyamah (tyrants plus oppressors and their families and followers) will come alive just for brief moment and will witness this event that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has promised to occur. Those who have firmed belief will be at peace to witness it. Those who denied will be chaos. Wallahualam.
