  1. Nope I don’t know where you got that from bro. Literally just read the footnote in the Hadith that you posted, what’s the issue? The footnote explained the Hadith clearly. The imam (عليه السلام) answers the very question you are posing here. If you know then why did you post it? i don’t know, please explain to me brother this Hadith.
  2. Gonna let you enjoy and explore hbbi, see you in about 10 years time ;) to spead the process up learn how the akhBari methodology of deriving Ahkam works (حدائق الناضرة). or just simply go through the istidlal of kitab us Salat. aplogies for misunderstanding you. Your claim is that it is permissible to add to the tashahud, ( I agree )if so then u must admit that any dua is beneficial to add in. I as a follower of the imams (عليه السلام) would say in my tashahud what they (عليه السلام) said. Hence why you are following your Aql (you believe in Qiyas?) is your aql better than the imams? Give me what the imam said in his tashahhud and I will do the same. Don’t give me your opinion. Don’t say the imam told us to say whatever we want, is that the function of an imam? Hmmm? What a great way of honouring the imam (عليه السلام). how many imams were there? how many tashahud did they say in thier lives? if u bring me anything not mutawatir then sorry I’m not gonna say it in my tashahdud. I’m gonna stick with saying THE EXACT SAME WORDS they said. if u bought a weak Hadith with 3rd tashahud in thier I would recite it. I know they exist and if somebody wants to use that Hadith it’s fine. What you are doing is trying to invent your own methodology. sincere advice from someone who went down your path, study the religion and don’t be biased. The truth will come to you
  3. Your answer is in the footnote for this one, as it is in most of the footnotes of the ahadith (not hadiS, sorry mispronunciations are annoying) you posted. Are you familiar with Usul al Fiqh? Your answer would be found there which is online with the fatwas of the ulema If you reject it (usul) or are not familiar with it that’s fine, I did too for a while (I thought being akhbari was cool), you must recite the Hadith as the imam (عليه السلام) recited it with no omission or addition. you must pick one methodology you can’t pick between 2, either we are akhbari literalists or we are Usuli. Both unfortunately don’t justify the the name of Ali as being wajib in salah. you don’t understand how much this one killed me, I so so wanted it to be true wait till u find out a syed can marry a non Syed (OMG)
  4. JazakAllah khair for sharing. Did you know Abu Dharr ra is also the one who was adviced about and where we get the evidence of Talbis ul libaas and not letting the gown go lower than the ankle.
  5. Read minhaj ul sunnah. I’m assuming most of those polemical shia sunni topics will be in there. I’m mainly familiar with his rational works and critiques of Greek logic etc. I have however studied minhaj ul karamah, which is a must read if u want to read ibn taymiyyahs book after.
  6. كل ذي نعمة محسود

  7. و عليكم السلام 1) sometimes in life you have to give up everything and sacrifice it all. Put it all on the line in order to search for the truth. I think if you have a passion to study the deen then that is enough. however exhaust all options before traveling. You cake become fluent and an advanced level Arabic linguist without leaving the west. You can memorize Quran, you can attend local courses and introductory courses. Once you have literally consumed all options available locally to you. Then and only then do you make the move. 2) If you are not willing to question the practices of the local imambargah and are easily offended or shaken then Hawza isn’t for you. ^^^I would elaborate but shia chat seems to have become a place for very thin skinned easily offended people.
  8. وعليكم السلام apologies if I didn’t make it clear, I thought I did, but yes you are correct Minhaj ul Karamah was written first. Have you read it ever? Beautifully written for students of Arabic language to appreciate. He does a lot of sunni bashing in the book like I mentioned the comments about hanafi salah. Which is very ironic reading back in the modern day. anyways the point was not to defend him or offer a truth value judgement on any of his work but to simply highlight for the OP what a significant person he was for intellectual development of ideas in history. There’s a reason why he’s very well studied in western academia because he wrote on lost of different topics in detail and was one of the leading thinkers of his time.
  9. In light of hanbali fiqh did you know that Ibn Taymiyyah went against the Ijmah on almost all of the major hanbali positions. Pick up Zaad ul mustaqni for example Especially for kitab al Salah, a glimpse at the sharh will show you how much of a ‘reformer’ type he was. as for his hatred towards the ahlul bayt (عليه السلام) that is in his books and doesn’t need elaborating. he was for use of a better word and absolute genius. If you can’t read Arabic I point you towards Hoover, and Halaq who have written extensively on his rationalism and his intellectual legacy. If you can read Arabic then his رد المنطقين shows his deep understanding of logic (background study of logic is maybe needed). در تعارض بين العقل والنقل is a refutation of Fakhr udin Razi’s universal axiom and there is not doubt that Razi is an amazing genius of this ummah. In essence it seems ibn taymiyyahs stance here is deeply empirical and eventually leads him to the same conclusion. Which we know is the position adopted by Tusi and hilli, in regards to reason and revelation. btw in some places in majmu al fatawa he openly says he agrees with the Shias on point X. The issue is, he is very harsh in minhaj as sunnah but allamah hilli is just as harsh in minhaj ul karamah (the part on hanafi salah always cracks me up). inwould advise you read up on him. He was a fallible human being with many many mistakes. But he for sure was an intellectual giant. Did he influence and create hate? Some of his works I would say yes could be interpreted that way. ***btw I disagree with most of the views of ibn taymiyyah I know how on this website and some Shia like to label people and control free thinking. **disclaimer
  10. Never seen such a perfect match for each other. Both have loads in common, more than you think. Deep deep hatred for the Iranian regime. Anyone associating with shamrani should be careful, very hateful vengeful character who spreads hate. Same goes for the other dude.
  11. Thank you brother for those kind words. May Allah bless you.
  12. The way I think about it is like this. Would Imam Ali (عليه السلام) if alive today listen to poetry and songs about him whilst sitting in a community centre (not masjid) with no care for salah/QuranEtc (anything islamic) Would he then round it off by chest beating and a blood bath of self flagellation concluding in a massive rice party with the name of other than all being used on the food? oh I forgot to add, maybe pray salah if you can fit it in. Not too important though. if he wouldn’t be in such gatherings you’ll find your answer
  13. He sums up all that is wrong with Shism today, an open exaggerator and performer. Wallahi the ahlul bayt (عليه السلام) are free from this kind of filth. these are not the people to look up to. We should be following the example of Ali (عليه السلام) trying to be like him.
  14. Excellent resources created here. If you still need any help with the Arabic content I am willing to help.
  15. Please try and read around the topic I would recommend Stratfor As someone who has Shaam close to his heart, it crushes me to think what occurred there.
