  1. Salam, I believe words of God in previous holy texts are all protected in its' original form with Isa (عليه السلام). Isa (عليه السلام) will return and show the original texts to the people and prove on how the corruption took place. Isa (عليه السلام) will bring the Holy Texts in physical written form so people can carbon dated it, scientifically test and verify with most sophisticated methods that it is original and authentic. The Holy Texts will also show no contradiction with Qur'an and also support Qur'an. Wallahualam, God knows best.
  2. God sends reminders to all humans 24 hrs until the moment of our death. Most humans are not grateful. Shakir 7:54] Surely your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods of time, and He is firm in power; He throws the veil of night over the day, which it pursues incessantly; and (He created) the sun and the moon and the stars, made subservient by His command; surely His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, the Lord of the worlds.[Shakir 7:55] Call on your Lord humbly and secretly; surely He does not love those who exceed the limits.[Shakir 7:
  3. As a driver to humanity on the path of truth, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) cannot have a blind spot. That can lead to accidents. The so-called passengers can damage the car and block or kill the driver.
  4. Or...before we drink a glass of water, tea or coffee on daily basis.. say "Assalamuala Hussain, wa aala Ali ibnul Hussain wa aala Auladul Hussain wa aala Ashabil Hussain". Remind ourselves how thirsty they were at Karbala, then may our remembrance of Hussain (عليه السلام) and those were with him will give us strength to face the tests in this world. Wallahualam..
  5. Salam... Tests are normal parts of Life. Even Princess Diana was tested too despite married to a Prince and was very rich. So will be the orphan girl who live in temporary refugee camp in cold winter. Islam doesn't not guarantee worldly life as we planned for it. What looks easy for others may not be easy for us. Islam guarantees internal peace, hope and ultimate direction to those who are on the path Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and His Servants. It is opened to all, young and old, poor and rich, men and women, higher and lower level of education.... If we can see
  6. Salamualaikum... This is my understanding.. Sins at human level are known. Prophet will never make sins that humans made. He is protected...ma'sum. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Absolute Pure and the Prophet is made to be Pure person. But still not at the level of Absolute Pure. There were "things or acts" that the Prophet had to do or maintain from himself to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) that only himself knew it (not meant for other humans to do). Only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows the extend of perfection of those "things or acts" by the Prophe
  7. Salam, It is all depend on individual basis. Some believe that 1. Just follow the jurisprudence, do the wajibat and associate with Aalims to know more Qur'an, Hadith and history. This is how to know Imam and hold on to them. 2. Some believe they want more that just at state above. They want to spend more time and effort and use intellectual approach by digging deeper into knowledge, philosophy, mantiq, tafsir, akhlaq....and understand all aspects of quran and hadiths through reasoning. Majority will become scholar and use scholarly approach to hold on to Imams. Most of
  8. Additional hadith that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) created names and attributes as means between His Own Self and creature... H 311, Ch. 16, h7 Muhammad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah in a marfu‘ manner, has narrated from abu Hashim al-Ja’fari who said the following: “Once I was in the company of abu Ja’far al-Thani, the 2nd, recipient of divine supreme covenant, when a person asked him, ‘The names and attributes of the Lord, the Most Holy, the Most High, mentioned in His book (the Holy Quran) are they He Himself?’ ..... “Allah existed but there were no cre
  9. Salam, I am not sure of those scholars. But, many Sufis believe in the statement underlined above. Let us try to understand from Al-Kafi H 304, Ch. 15, h4 Muhammad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah has narrated from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from some of his people from Bakr ibn Salih from Ali ibn Salih from al-Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid ibn Yazid from ‘Abd al-A‘la from abu ‘Abd Allah,recipient of divine supreme covenant, who said the following: “The name of Allah is something other than Allah Himself. Everything that is called a thing is created except Allah. Whatever (like the w
  10. Worshipping a diety has existed since the beginning. Method of Worship was not formalized until Adam (عليه السلام) came (born) to the earth. Even Iblees was Worshipping a Diety for millions of years. The moment Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) formalized it through Adam (عليه السلام), he objected.
  11. Salam, I am putting my understanding of sabr.. Wallahualam. Every event that occurs according to the Will of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has basis and timing. For that humans need patience and endurance if they want to adhere to the Wills of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) can grant to anyone "the true patience and endurance". The moment we put 100% trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), the true patience and endurance come automatically to the self. But, the self is not at peace yet. Then we need to understand the meeting of
  12. In addition, While in the returning journey to the Rabb with Muhammad using those verses, we will not be alone. We are with Ahlulbayt. Don't forget to read (after reading those verses).. Assalamualaika Ya Rasulullah, Assalamualaika Ya Amerul Mukminin ...Fatimatul Zahra...Hasaan Mujtaba.. Hussain Seyyedul Shuhada....... plus all the Prophets, Angels, Walis, shuhadas.... All the above sojls are also on board. All these verses below are very important and keys to unseen (Akhirat)...final destination. One of the reason that salam to Prophet and His Fam
  13. Salam, Not allowing Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to put His Holy Names in the self is shirk. Adam and Angels accepted it. Ibless prevented it because of arrogance, he didn't like the method of putting the Holy Names through Adam. Iblees wanted Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to put himself as the mean to The Holy Names. If we purposely don't put Allah's (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Holy Names in our inner self, we are performing shirk because we are arrogance. If we cover up Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Holy Names in our inner self, that is a kufr. If we doesn't a
  14. Salam, I believe the moment a person reads those verses, he detaches himself from the physical world and enter into the Mercy of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). His souls leave the body and returns to his Rabb. If he says Lailaha illa Allah, and followed by Muhammadur Rasulullah, He returns with Muhammad to his Rabb. Wallahualam...
  15. I have no problem with other people wanted to say on the methods of holding to Qur'an and Ahlulbayt. They want to follow traditional ways...that is ok. As long as they are guided to the path to serve Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). While I in was in the US as a student, i woke up one day and they was a writing on my forearm...in Arabic (Believe in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and follow the path). 20 yrs later, i came to know that it was actually a hadith from Fatima Zahra (عليه السلام). I even went to Qom to study religion (early 80s), but the admistrator for madrasah hu
