  1. Salam, The essence of evil is rebellion against the clear commands of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for whatever purposes. Iblis did just that and he turned into syaitan (pure evil). Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) did not created evil, instead the Jinns and humans can through free wills and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) allowed it. As long as jinns and humans stick to an ideology or belief that is derived from "against the clear commands of Allah (evil)", the created syaitans or evils, will live on. There are many syaitans that live on because those ideologies that have syaitanic roots are so prevalent now. The spread of syaitans (pure evils) are through 1. Enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) (humans that have syaitans in them), 2. Our own nafs (the tendency to be corrupted by syaitans or create new syaitans), 3. The Syaitans themselves (we not able to see by our eyes physically). Their jobs are to corrupt all humans and jinns. We need to fight the syaitans, through physical means such as to resist evil oriented humans (humans with evils in their souls)...example of such persons are Saddam, Isis, Zionist, US presidents, Hitler, gangsters, porn movie makers and others (too many). We also can resist syaitans that exist in our souls through spiritual means, by submission to the commands of Allahswt without questions. It creates NOOR in our souls. That Light will kick out the syaitans in our souls...little by little, stage by stage. Higher spiritual stages means resisting syaitans at the rank of General, instead of foot soldier. Finally, fighting or killing the Syaitans directly. For that, we need be closer to Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), especially our current Imam (عليه السلام). Without their help it is impossible to directly fight and kill Syaitans. Syaitans cannot be seen by physical eyes. One of the reasons that Islam and Qur'an came is to clear of syaitans. Only Prophet and Ahlul Bayt know the best method to clear syaitans, meaning to spread message of Islam and Qur'an, or the commands of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Therefore, some verses of Qur'an can be used to disable syaitans..or make syaitans to be handicapped, put them in jail or make them terminally ill. We don't have the zulfikar (sword) to kill syaitans, but our Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) has it.
  2. Salam, In dua Kumail, it is both. For those who are mukmin, spiritual separation from is worst than physical burning hell. For Musyrik, physical burning is hell is what that will scare them them the most because the concept of Tauhid is not instilled in their souls. It is also true for heaven. For mukmin, be spiritually closer to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is more than physical heaven. For non mukmin and non Muslim, physical heaven is more in their heart. What they can see through their physical eyes is more pleasing their heart.
  3. If that the case, God love us so much I can do action is this world as long I made the intention to reach God and that will be okay. In the past, there were human sacrifices to please God. Or be like the zionist, and claim to be chosen people, take palestinian lands and kill them too. In mexico, drug pushers and dealers would pray to Holy Mary to get God's protection before dealing drugs. Are all these acceptable under the intention to reach God. The world will be in chaos when ordinary people start to define personal ways of reaching God.
  4. Salam. Just to share what happen in self and peaceful feeling that we may have experienced. Islam is based on trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). And insist and persist in this trust. Complete the salat 5 times a day. We ask Him(عليه السلام) in surah al-fatiha...show me the right path. So we have belief plus actions. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will show the path, a little bit at time. He will raise a little question in us, then He will show the answer. He also will slowly allow our awareness toward Him in milliseconds, then He will want us to strive toward it so we are used to it. When we reach to that awareness, He will show more. This process will continue until we die. Once we are strong in foundation, He will show us the awareness of Ahmad and Ahlul Bayt. And through them, we will be truly aware of Names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Then we will understand the meaning of Tauhid because we can feel it or see it. The real peace will manifest in our souls. That moment, the love of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the true love, it is like the love of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to his Rabb (Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)), even though it a small portion. Persist in trusting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Just like others who advise you to read or listen to good lectures... all these to focus your heart toward Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and trusting Him. May all of us be guided!
  5. Numbers are good as long as you can count it. If you cannot count it manually then a machine can count for us. Let say we start counting and we shall not stop. How long human or machine can count numbers? It will be just until before qiamat.The biggest number counted will be on the day before qiamat when the whole universe about to collapse. No doubt that counted numbers are so big, but it will stop growing on the day of qiamat. The moment numbers stop growing due to destruction of universe, then it is finite.
  6. Salam, Prophets and Imams are Actors and they are physically different. They just follow and say whatever the Scripts descends from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to their heart and souls. They will listen and follow. If there are two on them are present, they will behave accordingly (according to the scripts). One will be leader, the other follow. At the same time, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will allow and make them to behave like normal humans and having different point of views within "protected frameworks" and not misleading. All in all there are lessons for other humans to learn in their behavior differences. We are social human beings. The only time the differences between them are none is the spiritual content in term of Tauhid. Only One Light exist in them. Brightest in Prophet Muhammad and Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). Physically. Surely we can learn from their human behaviors. Because Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) allows Prophet and Imams to behave as normal humans and when we are physically with the Prophet or Imams, we can have conversation and express opinions with them. We can check our opinions and learns when we are with them. We can see how Musa(عليه السلام) and Haron (عليه السلام) behaved as normal human behavior would and we also learned how Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protected both of them. We also both were physically different. Haron (عليه السلام) can communicate better than Musa (عليه السلام). Both delivered same message...Tauhid (Light of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)) while behave as normal humans. So Tauhid is the Rope that unite us together. And that Rope is Prophet and Ahlul Bayt.
  7. Salam, Brother, repentance is for our whole life. It will not stop. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) loves the servant who constantly returns to Him. All of us need repentance. Ramadhan is the perfect time to ask. Lailatul qadr. The little lailatul qadr starts from the first night. Keep seeking closeness to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) through the closeness to the Pure Souls of Ahlul Bayt. Keep constant salawat in your heart as if the Pure Souls are your souls when reading doas / prayers to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). That is the key for our duas to be accepted. When the fire crackers of the Grand Lailatul qadr (Light) descends to Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام), may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) grant us the readiness to receive one of the sparks that will fall to our souls. Then that will be our mission for that whole year. Remembers! the sparks will fall to every human souls, but only those who are sincere to be with Imam Mahdi (عليه السلام) will receive it. All humans have the opportunity to receive Lailatul Qadr, a we should not miss it. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) give us the sincerity and strength to be with our current Imam (عليه السلام). Brother, you and all of us need that sparks to attach to our souls. May all of us be guided.
  8. Only humans have the faculty that is called a "heart". It is a gift from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to let us know, feel and see His Glory. It is spiritual and beyond time. It can travel to higher dimensions, past and future. The heart makes all mukmins connected to each other, Ahlul Bayt and ultimately to our Prophet. Then, through the Prophet (عليه السلام), we see the Glory of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). If Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) sees our heart and there is pure love to Ahlul Bayt and Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), ....the Glory of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will be shown to us. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Angels are constantly sending blessings to our Prophet... and what if the Prophet exist in our heart????
  9. Salam, This is my understanding. I believe we have to go back to the history of Adam (عليه السلام). Before our Adam, there we many Adams. Before our Adam, there we no sins and no disobedience to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). Everything was in order. When Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) wanted make humans as Khalifah, and raise the status, the syaitan was created in Iblis. Then Adam and Hawa, through their free wills were tricked by Syaitan. That was the first instance where syaitan initiative to deceive humans. If there was not syaitans to deceive Adam and Hawa, both would be somewhere else and all of us will not be in our current conditions. We all will be obeying Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). But now, we are living with other humans, jins and syaitans, surely our sins can come through other humans, our own nafs and syaitans. Information that comes through medias, and our nafs (through wrong and bad decisions) and whispers of syaitan can make us to sin.
  10. Can women (wifes) learn to overcome it? So that demand will be under control. Are there legal and viable methodology to make the man demand under control?
  11. Salam, Perhaps your previous successes and distinctions were not from you (not from your souls), but was parked to your souls temporarily. Like Adam was given the knowledge, but taken back after he ate the fruits. The best for you is to sink in yourself is that your past abilities were from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and NOT from you. To clean up the self you need "taahir souls to be with you souls". The cleaned souls are Ahlul Bayt. With that unity and attachment from you souls with the cleaned souls, return to Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) as Adam did. Maybe Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) return back your past confidence to you through your attachment to Ahlul Bayt. If that ever happen to you, forget of you own self. Just tell yourself, in me there is only love and attachment to Ahlul Bayt. My success, knowledge, direction that came to me from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) through the cleaned souls (Ahlul Bayt)... and ask forgiveness from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) for all my life (cleaning my souls). If that souls are returned to be parked with you, you will know the difference. May all of us be guided.
  12. Salam, Namaz came at the very early of Islam and has been validated by the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) himself. Do we need to add more to it? What is wrong with the current method? I supposed Imams would only advocate what the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) already validated. They would explain if we misunderstood. When salawat is part of Tashahuud, that is enough to prove that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Aali Muhammad are important and for the Namaz to be accepted. Not sending blessings to Aali Muhammad, the Namaz is not valid. It applies to all Muslims.
  13. One thing I like about believing in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), we can test or experiment it. Doubtful at the beginning, but becoming clearer as the time goes by. Then higher experiment, until we are ready to take a test. It is in human nature that we are born to trust... Otherwise we will live alone or no social interaction. We can trust our friends, parents, leaders... Then we are allowed to test the trust that we have. We have to lower our pride to our friends, parents and leaders in order to test the trust by listening to them. Doubtful at the beginning, and better results later after we experiment with the trust. Why could we trust our Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Prophet and Imams? Then experiment the trust and see the results. We don't have to put condition to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), make me be like Imam Ali, then only the trusting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will work. Be like Imam Ali if you want to lead the ummah. Our current concern is to start trusting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and not leading ummah.
  14. Wait until he get a job. A man who cannot support his wife and family financially, (the situation) may disturb his state of mind. He cannot see and appreciate your beauty when he has nothing to give...
  15. The concept of Imamah is different from Imam for a community, mosque, or congregation prayer. When a person is given authority directly from Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is guiding him to guide people, he is an Imam under the concept of Imamah. الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُواللَّه وَأَطِيعُوٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُوْلِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ… 4:59 – Ya ayyu hal latheena amanoo Atiu Allaha wa atiur Rasola wa Ulil amre minkum…(Surat an-Nisa) O You who have believed, Obey Allah, obey the Messenger, and those in authority among you.(The Women, 4:59) As far as the rank: 1. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) 2. Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) 3. Ulil Amri (those with authority among you). The question is who is the one that gives the authority? Not the people but Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Himself. The person with authority to mankind is called an Imam under the concept of Imamah. Since Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guides an Imam then Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will protect him. If anyone in the world that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has declared of given protection, the person is Maksuum. Example of declared protection: [Shakir 33:33] Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying. So Ahlul Bayt are protected. For those who believe in Imamah, Ahlul Bayt are their Imams after our Rasul.
