  1. I would tend to think the problem for a first wife is to become a second wife.
  2. Brother told clearly he will tell buyers about the fake news of the goods. So that's more a copyrights issue here.
  3. True. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) in the Quran says 'do not kill yourselves', He doesn't say 'do not kill yourselves and seek healing through prayer and iman'. So basically if some people need medical or psychological assistance at some point, it has to be emphasized on. Muslims who claim all relies on a good faith are irresponsible.
  4. Brother, you have been here posting for years as a Shia. I do not understand why you are making things complicated on yourself. Do as you like, but I would recommend to just stick to Shia, even when you go to Sunni places. Anyway take it easy.
  5. Or that they still want you included in family gatherings in spite of you turning to Islam. Which is good. Just go and enjoy family.
  6. How old are you ? Do you have a family to take care of ? What are your chances to find a job in Iraq ? Do you have an idea of how unfair and uncertain life is up there ?
  7. In islam we tend to associate ritual bath ('ghusl') with physical cleanliness such as pollution. Yet we have many recommendations about how performing ghusl can accompany us in our spiritual actions (e.g. friday before congregation etc). Can we establish connections with holy baptism which at some point may have been a tenant of shari`a - as by judging from Mandeans?
  8. You are asking us to judge a book by its cover here, brother. How many of us do you think have read it ?
  9. Thanks Covid, now I am less shocked by a covered face than I was two years ago.
  10. I do not confuse them. In biblical logic, prophets of Bani Israel were very often associated with the king, be it in good terms or bad terms. As like Nabi Yusuf (عليه السلام), Daniel (عليه السلام), Yahia (عليه السلام) etc. That was a particularity amongst the Religion of Israelites. And the reason I emphasize the period between Isa and Muhammad (sawas) is because from what we know, Allah's order (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to go from an exclusive to an universal religion changed after nabi Isa.
  11. Ok so maybe in 300 AD there was a hujja in Peru, who came after a prophet himself born and sent to Peruvian people. That would make sense indeed. It's a bit weird though because given the geographical proximity between the lands of Bani Israil and Muhammad (sawas), and also the chronological revelations, we logically think they followed each other without interruption.
  12. Not debating this. It's seems consensual from Qur'an that there always were Prophets for Bani Israil, until `Isa (عليه السلام). But now we are talking about non apparent hujjat, which implies they were not the prophets you a talking about. And if they were 'silent' hujjat, we can suppose they were keepers of religion from amongst a nation that had received a revelation beforehand. Otherwise their role would have been useless.
  13. Makes sense. Yet, I find it very strange that the period between Isa and Muhammad (sawas) is such a blurry period in time with regards to religious belief.
  14. Seeing how central and crucial the concept of Hujja is in our version of Islam, and taking into consideration the hadith of "One who dies without knowing the Imam of his time".... It is not easy to accept that some of them were ghayb to the point they were unknown.
  15. Sorry, I was not precise in my phrasing. I meant to say that it is strange that Nabi (sawas) never mentioned one Hujja that came after Isa (عليه السلام) and before him. He could have done so in order to convince, or to show some continuity in Allah's message (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). And even weirder, that not a single of those Hujja ever claimed to be so, although he should have done so. Historical records all over the Christian world are numerous, the crowning of Charlemagne, Clovis, Roman and Byzantine Popes, all of those took place around the avent of Prophet (sawas). Yet we never read about 'Such or such claimed he was an argument of God, a tenant of the Religion'. Only exception would be Mani.
