    Socrates got a reaction from HusseinAbbas in Moroccan women fear extremism   
    There is no case to rest. Shias constitute arond 20% of Islam, your stats are old.

    Just because a minority represents it, you don't want to believe?

    But Taliban and Saddam's Baathist don't even consitute 0.1% of Islam, and still you like to label their ways as "Islamic".

    very convenient <_<

    Socrates got a reaction from PureExistence1 in How Many Daughters Did The Prophet Have?   
    Of course he was an oppressor during the time of the Prophet (pbuh) - he was allied to the kuffar even after he became a Muslim - and even if I take your argument that he wasn't, the Prophet (pbuh) knew fullwell what he was going to do afterwards, so it makes no sense that the Prophet (pbuh) would give his daughters to such a person especially when other righteous companions were available.
    This marriage also makes no sense historically, no one ever protested in the court of Yazid that the widow of a caliph of Islam was being taken as a captive, and let alone anyone else, even Abdullah ibn Umar went to complain to Yazid, which is recorded in all the historical sources, he never mentioned that his step mother was being treated in this way. Some people have even denied that Umm Kulthum even existed, and that it was a title of Sayyida Zaynab (as), though I don't fully buy that view either.
    With regards to the marriage of Aisha etc, the issue is boring and not really a matter of Shia interest. The Prophet (pbuh) married her for a specific reason, and that objective was achieved. End of story. However, these marriages (of Umm Kulthum and Ruqayya, as well as Umm Kulthum bint Ali) are more important as they are women of the household being married to oppressors.
    Just because there is a hadith which has reliable narrators doesn't mean its the be all and end all. But you would never understand such a thing.

    dumb is he who does not ask questions because he is limiting his knowledge, when rasool pbuh said, seeking knowledge is compulsory on every muslim, man or woman.

    No offence meant, but sister are you aware of history? No wife of the Holy Prophet pbuh had any surviving children. Fatima Zahra (as) was the only child. Hence all descendants of Prophet were in fact sons of either the Imams (as) or sons of the children of Imam Ali (as)

    I've skimmed through it, though as I say, when you have a Surah of the Qur'an (which the brother has attempted to answer but hasn't really done so), no amount of ahadith can turn that around. You can take the Sunni version that the Surah was revelation had nothing to do with Fatima Zahra (as) but Shia commentators are pretty much unanimous that it was revealed in the fifth year of revelation and shortly after its revelation, Fatima Zahra (as) was born.
    I don't think the comparison is a valid one, mainly because we're talking about the daughters of the Prophet (pbuh). Most of the Muslim world is at pains to point out that Abu Talib was a kafir, so no details about his sons lives is not surprising. Moreover, Aqil and Talib grew up in the pre-Islamic era, of which history tells us very little, whereas these women grew up in an age where there were many more narrators. Apart from the fact that we know the names of these women and that they were allegedly daughters of the Prophet (pbuh), what else do we have? Not even an objection from any of them that the Prophet (pbuh) used to stand up in respect of Fatima (as) but none of the others?

    No need for Shia books, when a surah of Qur'an proves beyond doubt that he only had one [biological] daughter.
    Read Suratul Kawthar, read when it was revealed. End of story.
    As for 33:59, just look at 3:61 and there's your answer.
    Besides, where are the details about the lives of these other women who were supposedly daughters of the Prophet? There's so much about Fatima (as) that you could fill hundreds of volumes, yet next to nothing about the lives of these other daughters? Isn't that strange?

    It is wise for you to avoid discussing definitions you have no idea about.

    Tabarrah is a Shia concept that the Shias would know better about than you would.

    As for cursing the munafiqeen, Allah does it in the Qur'an. So Tabarrah includes cursing, as in Surah Baraah (which is the origin of the word Tabarrah) Allah curses.

    Forget about circumstances, had Umar or anyone from that party dare to dig up the grave of Fatima (as) that day, then Ali (as) would have filled the whole of Madina with a stream of blood. When he came out bare headed and barefooted, with his sleeves rolled up and his thobe ripped from the front, and his eyes were red, and he said, whoever walks over this line, they are asking for their death sentence, everyone remembered that hadith of the Prophet (saw) when he said if you see Abul Hasan in such a state, do not come near him otherwise you will be finished.

    i respect your view brother

    dhakko is not ayatullah there are fatwas from mujtahids that he is not one

    of course our maraje use quran and hadeeth to derive the law

    what you have suggested is a complicated process in fiqh called 'ihtiyat' which is more difficult to follow in comparison of Taqleed.


    Brother you have said it all. Islam is for all and we cannot all be mujathids. This is why we have mujtahids to guide us in the absence of the Imam (as).

    Remember that Taqleed is only in furoo-e-deen. A mujtahid has no control over your aqaed and it is haram to follow a mujtahid about tawheed, adl, naboowat, imamat and qiyamat. Only in matters concering furoo do we consult a mujtahid.

    hope this helps. I sincerely hope I have offended as that was not my meaning. Let me make it clear that I am a staunch supporter of Aliyyun waliullah in kalimah, but in namaz i refer this matter to my mujtahid and he says that it is not wajib although it is permissible.
