  1. What about those who do not have the ability to read or write. They have no ability to understand Islam and the role of Ahlulbait - They exist in jungles and villages, in midst of ignorance, and have no money to escape their plight, let alone reaching the doors of Islam. Do you believe these will end up in Hell?
  2. Allah (SWT) and our Aiemah (A) know best - We can only speculate based on out thinking. The day of judgement is 50,000 years long. ALSO the Punishments in Barzakh and on the day of Judgement are there to purify the sinners. Is anything difficult and out of reach of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. Sin committed by Hur wiped out, in matter of hours. Also an examples of a loose woman amongst the Israeli whom no person would give gusl and bury in the grave of believers - A prophet ordered to attend to her mayiet (kaneez??) of Allah. Allah knows best. BUT how can we say adamantly that what we say will be executed by Allah (SWT) in the hereafter? Can you say you understand all what you read, 100%? Tell me how can you accept that a 6-7 years old kafir who died and got cremated - Will he be sent to hell - He does not even know what is right and wrong, and its beyond his ability to convert. Do you believe Allah(SWT) is unjust? Do you believe it is justice if this 6-7 years old end up in hell? Does he deserve Hell? Similarly there are many, who do not have the ability to read or write. They have no ability to understand Islam and the role of Ahlulbait - They are deep in the midst of ignorance and no money to escape their plight let alone react the doors of Islam. Do you believe it is just, they end up in Hell. What's the difference between those who believe this (hard lines) and the fanatics I cannot come out and rubber stamp these will end up in hell, can you?
  3. This is addresses to all ppl on this thread Prophet (sawws) said, Jews will be divided into 71 factions, Christian into 72 factions and Muslims into 73 factions. In Muslims all but one shall enter paradise. - AND read what Imam Ali (A) says, One who sincerely strives for the truth and dies as a kafir does not deserve Hell. I conclude Allah being Rahman and Rahim will not subject all mankind (who are not on truth) to Hell. It is stupid and illogical to believe otherwise. Yes the only truth is that one faction Prophet (sawws) has pointed to, But ppl like Adil NawSharwan and Hatim Tai and other will not enter hell - MAY be many to Husaini Bramin (Najis) will not be driven into hell. Allah does not test one beyond his/her ability. It is extremely difficult for a person buried under weight of christian/hindu/Sunni/and other belief to convert to Shia-Islam. And though the leaders of these faith will be subjected to severity (hell) for lying and hiding the truth their followers will only be judged according to their own understanding and merits - Don't be surprised if you see a Sunni/Christian/Jew higher in rank than yourselves in Jannah. - Don't be fanatic narrow minded .......... I read an article long time back - Cant remember the source. It was about two Hindu females whose dead bodies were burnt BUT their chest refused to burn? Upon attempts to learn the reason the leaders found that these ladies used to participate in matam-e-Husain during 10 days of Muharrum. Story is believable - Can you explain this? I believe these women will attain paradise. Obviously, Allah does not test one beyond his ability - We see people of varying abilities - One comes across a Shia (follower of 12 imams) with so low ability of understanding that he does no know Gusl is wajib. His islam is to follow what others do (even whan they are wrong). - Such a person is in a way more like a religious faction of its own. Can any person say he will be sent to Hell, because of his low ability? So how can a Hindu, Christian, Jew or Suni person be sent to hell?
  4. Thanks, Br. Al-Muntadhar and SD2 I read the commentary by S V Mir Ahmed Ali. It states that Isteghfar and Zanb has more than one meaning. Any examples and explanations?
  5. I know and I believe Prophets and Imams are sinless BUT can some one explain Al- fath verse 2
  6. Why is it, that you need proof to accept something while you do not need proof to reject it? Don't let the ego, 'know all' within you to over power your judgement. Do you reject the existence of Jinn mentioned in Holy Qu'ran? Regarding the video clip, it is difficult to believe some one could put up such an act. It does not sound fake at all. Secondly, When any person is faced with any problem whatsoever just call upon Ali ibn abi Talib عليه السلام. Say Ya ali madad - and you will find help from ghaib. Everything that exist (rivers, mountain, earth, air) has lot of respects for Ali ibn abi talib. Just test this out if you don't believe. When you have any problem, even when a glass or a cup slips out of you hands and you say Ya Ali Madad. The earth, ground, and all that around will be humbled, and the cup or glass will not break. This is a living miracle (mujiza). I heard a story (narration) from the mimber. The alim mentioned that during the time of prophet (SAWWS), a jinn came to him with his two thumbs tied with a straw (from barley or wheat). All through the years he could not get his hands untied. He said, he had approached every prophet that came, but they were all helpless. Prophet (Sawws) asked the jinn to wait and in a little while a young person appeared approaching prophet (SAWWS). The jinn, in fright hid behind prophet (SAWWS) saying, " 'by Allah' this is the same person who tied my thumbs. When I was harassing a believer (during the period between adam (A) and Nuh (A)), That believer called for help and this person appeared on horse back and slapped me so hard that I became unconscious. When I woke up my thumbs were tied. Prophet Muhammad Asked the youth (i.e. Ali ibn abi Talib (A)) to untie his hands. This Jinn was none other than Jaffer Jinn who embraced Islam and appeared during the times of Imam Husain (A) in Kerballa, offering to help. PLEASE GET THIS ABOVE STORY VERIFIED FROM SOME ALIM because I cannot vouch for its authenticity. Gist of narration is to show that when we have ahlul-bait (A) how can anything over power us. If the lady concern seeks help from Ali عليه السلام. the jinn will be destroyed. When ever you are confronted by the jinn call for help from Imam Ali (a) (or even the other Aiemah (A)) and see how the jinn disappears. WE HAVE A LOT TO THANK Allah FOR THE PIOUS INFALLIBLE BEINGS HE (swt) SENT TO GUIDE US. While we are on this issue, I wonder what would happen if all the people in Bahrain called on Ali ibn Abi Talib for help. Most likely the rule of the Mad Khalifa Hamad would crumble like a house of cards. And the Wahabi soldiers would end up in Lunatic asylums like the Jewish soldiers who fought in Lebanon against Hezbullah and ended up deranged.
  7. First, Do you need a link for something so obvious. Israel is not functioning as a viable state. It’s more like a pirate establishment violating every civilized norm. It has no respect for UN or world at large. Here - http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/269241
  8. Ayietullah Khameini is wise he knows best - He is wali-e-faqih. BTW - would you have said the same against our Imam Ali Zainul Abideen (A) when he decided to remain silent during the massacre of medina some times after the incident of Kerballah? Wise move they know from the mistake of Israel in Lebanon - How the Israeli oppression turned the unarmed peaceful Shia people into martyrdom loving, formidable force that today shakes the foundation of well armed Zionist regime. Actually Iran will not get directly involved -This will be a like for like. You play the devils game from the dack door and we will let / encourage the people in the region to arm and train the Bahraini people. Would the Saudi want its soldiers coming home in body bags and shake the kingdoms hold on power? LOL Like the sedition the Saudi's tried to unleash in Iran using Jundullah and Rigi Give them what they tried to serve others. There are thousands of ways Iran can teach Abdullah, a lesson he and his goons will never forget. I am sure this Bahraini invasion is a mistake the Saudis will regret, because this has brought the saudi rulers under focus and hatred of all muslims. Had it not been for the Saudis Iraq and Afghanistan would never have been invaded. Saudi have supported the despots like Hosni mubarak, Muamar Ghadafi, Yemani despot and the likes. If Saudi's want to hold on to power, they should not get their hands mucky.
  9. GCC agreement is for foreign invasion. This here is an internal problem and does not qualify for Saudi interference. Taking this into consideration, if Bahrain was invaded by United States would these chickens implement GCC agreement? Shows the cowards are only good for suppressing the weak, unarmed civilians. The Bahraini Monarch has no right to call for the Saudi or any foreign troops to suppress the Bahraini citizens. -- This is like Ghadafi trying to holding on to power whether the Libyans like it or not - BTW who does the land (Bahrain) belong to ? the monarch or the people? Are you so naive? US cannot afford to get involved directly in Bahrain - It would face the wrath of Iran. BTW - US has been making big noise against Ghadafi in Libya, why is it so quiet on Bahrain? There is armed conflict in Libya WHILE in Bahrain the unarmed civilians are being killed. Where is UN, Western indignation, and American condemnation LIKE it has habit of unleashing against Hezbullah, Iran and Syria? And why this massacre immediately after the US representative made an un-announced visit to Bahrain.
  10. Sura 2 - Al-Baqara (MADINA) : Verse 124 When Ibrahim (A) was made an Imam - He asked, Allah about his progeny. Allah (swt) said , "My covenant does not reach the unjust. Even one single sin is a zulm on oneself (unjust) - Therefore being without sin = infallible. In the linage of prophet Ibrahim (a) the only Imam we see are the 12 imams. Since the covenant only reaches the just - one can safely say Imam (a) were (sinless) infallible. Also remember Ali (A) had to overtake Abubakr and take the ayiet and deliver / announce to the Kufar of Mecca BECAUSE Allah instructed the the ayiet should only be delivered by prophet (sawws) or be one of his own. Allah knows best.
  11. Prophet (sawws) was created 14,000 years before Adam - He witnessed the creation of Adam (A). Prophet (saw) has said, he was a prophet while Adam (A) was between water and clay. One cannot be a prophet if he does not have ilm. To have in-depth ilm and yet one is unable to read or right does not sound logical. Why would Allah give the ilm to prophet (sawws) and keep him illiterate - for what reason? unless some one comes up with a logical answer, it would be foolish and illogical to believe prophet sawws) was illiterate. Beside Sayied ul Ambiah is supposed to have higher qualities than other ambiah. If nabi Isa (A) could talk when he was a baby, just born (Allah miracle) - It would be far out of place to say prophet (sawws) could not even read until he was over 40 years old.
  12. Try this as well if you have time. http://www.answering-ansar.org/wahabis/en/index.php but take it slow you dont have to defeat them in a day - Or you could bring them here to shia chat - the people here will slaughter them. - :!!!:
  13. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/05/AR2011020501596.html What a stupid traitor Ahmed Aboul Gheit. – Iran did not silence the opposition it crushed the traitors who were kind of agents of the western soft war. Where as the Egyptian uprising is against western domination. Egypt has not voiced anti west rhetoric so openly (no American Flags or western flags burnt and no ‘death to America and west’ echoed, but if they are betrayed which they surely will be the backlash will be more severe. This will be Iran repeated. Iran was betrayed and backstabbed during Musaddig and see what happened during the times of Imam Khomeini. Today Egypt does not have an opposition leader and they are demanding democracy, if betrayed, tomorrow they will rise up the throw out the foreign authority. And it wont be Egypt alone this will go through the Arab world like wild fire. Next 7 years will reveal a lot.
  14. Don't want to spoil your fun - but ............................ Have you heard, ' a foolish friend is worst than a wise enemy'. Brothers - this type of behaviour creates problems for all Muslimeen (the Shias as well as Sunni) It helps our enemy divide us and rule over us. - You are actually helping the Enemies of Islam (US and Israel and others) dominate Islam. Do you want to stand accused on the day og judgement of harming the cause of Islam? Imam Khomeini (who was a wali faqih) said one who creates fasaat between Shia - Sunni is neither a Shia nor a Sunni (he is an enemy of both) Sayied Ali Khameini (present day - Wali e faqih) has forbidden these things. According to the fatwa of many mujtahideen it is wajib to obey wali-e faqih (no matter whose taqleed you are doing) - Check with the Mujtahid you follow. So - This is not a funny joke - its a Sin. I have no compassion for a person who put a rope around Imam Ali's neck and dragged him to Mosque to forcefully extract allegiance. My blood boils when I hear these people collected sticks to burn the house of Fatimah (a) down and even hurt her. I do not like those who created fasaat in the ummah of prophet (sawws). But Brothers, being Shia, (if we are real Shia-e-Ali (A)) We should not dare disobey the wali faqih of our time. Remember - In battle of Jamal Ali (A) ordered his army not to respond to insults or provocation of the person who would come forward to incite them. Earlier, Zubair had a word with Ali (A), and Ali (A) reminded him of the warning of prophet (sawws) regarding this confrontation. Thereafter Zubair was shaken and wanted no part of this war. But due to pressure from the followers of Ayiesha on one side, AND his nafs forbidding him from confronting Ali (A), he found himself trapped. Zuhair decided to incite the army of Ali (A), so that in the rage they would Kill him. BUT no matter what he did, Ali's followers remained stead fast. They stood motionless, and did not respond to Zuhairs insults and provocations. Zuhair, failing to incite Ali's followers into killing him, rode away from the battle field and was killed by one of the munafiqeen from the camp of Ayiesha. Also note (after the demise of Prophet (sawws)) when the enemy (standing in Ali's house) showed arrogance against Ali (A) - at that time both Salmaan and Abu zarr were present. Salmaan just kept his eye towards Ali (A) waiting for orders - and did not react. WHILE Abu zarr's could not tolerate this, and his hands moved towards his sword, Ali (A) had to signalled Abu zarr to remain calm. Ali's followers are expected to show high degree of tolerance and wisdom and obedience. (This also showed the high status of salmaan to that of Abu-zarr). --------------------------- Obedience (to wali faqih) is more important than making a show of your love for Ali (A) and your hate towards the enemies of Ali (A). Acting with wisdom is better than being a foolish friend. Today If you are truly Shias - and those who love Ali (A), you are expected to refrain from such actions, because Rahber Khamini has forbidden us. Because the mujtaheedeen you follow order you to obey the Wali Faqih Rahber Khameini. ------------------------------------------- I thought SHIA CHATS do not allow such Sins. Where are the Mods? Is it not your duty to advice the brothers here?
  15. Muntazer – You can read the hadith in Kitab ul Irshad - in the last part about Imam Mahdi (A) - And it not any ordinary eclipse that normally occur. Two eclipses occur in a month often that not any thing new But eclipse of the sun only occurs at the end of the month WHILE eclipse of the moon occurs in the middle of the month. The two eclipses predicted in the hadith above are different. i.e. eclipse of the sun will take place in the middle of the month While the eclipse of the moon will occur at the end of the month. (Both eclipses will have changed place) This has never happened since Adam (A) set foot on the earth (i.e. in the history of the earth). The way I read the above - The death of King Abdullah will start a power struggle - Normally A king rules for years - but after King abdullah the people who take power will only rule for a month or days before they are over thrown - The struggle will continue and there will be no peace in hejaz until Imam Mahdi comes onto the scene. Advent of our Imam (A) is years away. There will be three appearances in 'one year, one month and one day' before the advent of our imam --- the appearance of Sufyani, Khurashani and Al Yemini. The is in kitab ul irshad. My best bet is hold your breath until 2028 --- From this year (2011) until 2028 - we will see a lot --- Mass killing, nightly attacks, wars famine - corruption, new conflicts occurring every day, earning halal wealth will become impossible -- In short most evil of days lay ahead.
  16. Prophet (sawws) migrated from Mecca to Medina. Ali (A) migrated from Medina (hejaz) to Kufa (iraq). And Allah (swt) is scattering us believers to all part of the world so that we can carry the message of Islam to all corners of the earth. -------------------- The message of the reciter is probably about Dajaal and his Jannah. The atheistic west is the Dajaal - And Muslims come to this west in search of better life in the west (the Dajaal’s jannah.) You can see that life in west is really a hell for us - We are loosing our faith and our youth are turning to evil ways of life. If we stay here seeking the pleasure of life this Jannah - and on the day of judgement when we find ourselves submerged in Gunnah and feel the heat of Allah's wrath (heat of the sun - We will wish we hadn't come to this dajaals jannah (the west) Poverty in this life is better than poverty in the hereafter. On the day of Qiamah there will be many sheltered from the heat of the sun.
  17. Every Muharrum we hear how Imam Husain (A) sacrificed everything he had for the sake/pleasure/will of Allah. If we are waiting for Imam Mahdi (A) do we have the love, faithfulness, and steadfastness of the ashaab e Husan (A). Because like the kufians we might end up calling our Imam Mahdi (A) and when he go back on our words and break our resolve to help him. If we have that faith and determination why cant we attract the misguided population towards true Islam. Our faith should manifest in our amaal - and people just looking at us should want to enter the fold of Islam. We need to become real, steadfast Muslims. We should develop such faith in our hearts, that Mountains may shake but our faith shouldn’t. - Than probably we can say we are ready for our Imam (A) Having said that the other reason (look into history) right from the times of our prophets (A) people rejected the truth. Even the Muslims betrayed prophet Muhammad (sawws) they were not true to the orders of prophet Muhammad given at Ghadeer khumm. Abubakr, Omar and others would not have usued the rights of Imam (A) if Muslims of Medina were not weak and feeble in Imaan in medina. If these were real Muslims, Omer would not have had guts to collect sticks to burn the house of Fatimah(A) down, neither would he have had guts to threaten the Ahlul bait (A). If Muslims were faithful to Prophet (sawws) they would not allowed the slaughter of the grand son of prophet (sawws) in Kerballah OR allowed the capture of the pure family of prophet (sawws) and their parading as slaves and prisoners in Kufa and Shaam. Today the Muslim world has rejected the Aiemah (true representatives of Allah (swt)) from the progeny of prophet (sawws)) and have moved to follow the ghair. And look at their status - they face defeated after defeat and humiliated after humiliation, and have no peace. They are the biggest looses in this world. The world has turned to all different systems/ guidance other than Allah (Sunnism, Wahabiism, (73 firkahs in islam) and Communism, Socialism Democracy, capitalism & Fascism etc) and when all this fails and there is utter chaos, the world out of desperation will call for Allah to alleviate the misery, At that time Allah will send our Imam (A) to take control. Sorry, didn't mean to give a lecture. :(
  18. Goodbye freedom in US; Welcome authoritarian / totalitarian rule. Words of Imam khomeini; "Socialism now belongs to the dust bins of history, and capitalism is going the same way." US economy in taters, unemployment on the increase, cities bankrupt and US freedom Vanishing so quickly, - All because of Israel, Israeli lobby and Israeli greed. ----------------- Also look at the far sightedness of our Ulemah. Masha_Allah
  19. Brother, when Prophet (sawws) left Mecca for Medina, he ordered all the believers not to come out, Abu bakr's leaving the house and following prophet (sawws) was disobedience. One should never dis-obey the orders of prophet (sawws). Besides If he had so much affection for prophet (sawws) and wanted to be helpful, Why did he start crying in the cave? One doesn't go out to help a friend and when faced with enemy, starts crying. Either you are brave or a coward. Its stupid to go out being brave and end up crying because of fear (fear is a sign of cowardice) And WHY CRY when the danger is so close? The enemy outside would have heard, and Prophet (sawws) life would have been in danger. NOW, this is not demonising Abubakr this is PURE LOGICS. Qur’an has actually exposed the weak faith of Abu-bakr. One should not take this as a praise for Abu bakr.
  20. In that case you are more learned than those who have spent, a large part of their lives studying, and in researching Islam. You don’t need them. Surprisingly, we do not hear such rebellion challenging the teachings in the scientific and other academic fields round the world – But people who have hardly read one or two books in Islam appear supper clever when it comes to Islam. This is more like the young people who believe they know what’s good for them more than their parents and elders. Please do grow up.
  21. Funny you call others a moron - Haven’t you watched the clip? Do you always comments in contradiction of what you witness first hand? LOL - You should be in the genesis book of records
  22. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/terrorism-in-the-uk/8099344/Yemen-bomb-plot-key-questions-raised.html Seem like another 9-ll type of lie Most likely the bomb was devised by the western agents affiliated to Israel or Israel to promote Israeli plots. This seem more like trying to curtail Shias in Yemen. They will never learn.
  23. Have you seen how the Sunni people (not meant as insult – Just an observation - to compare) stand on the political and religious platform of the world. This is because they do not have the concept of taqleed as we have in Shias. Muslim world before the Shias, lost India to British and before that they lost Kashmir to Moguls as result of that jealousy, today large part of Kashmir is in the hands of India. India also succeeded in dividing Pakistan (east Pakistan is now Bangladesh). And Palestinian is now Jewish controlled Israel. Arabs had the wear the dunce cap of Yom-Kippur war (cape of Shame) for decades until Hezbullah turn the tables. Note, due to the absence of religious leadership (like in Shias) the Sunni Arab leaders are traitors to their own. Also look at the fatwas amongst Sunni people. Every person preaching in the mosque thinks he is a qualified Alim in the Sunni world with rights to issue fatwa. This is because they do not have the concept of taqleed. You find hundreds of different rulings amongst sunnis (esp in Pakistan) from every imam who leads prayers in the mosque. Recently Saudi had to ban these, as things were going out of control. The system of marjiyet, we have has kept us Shias on the best of discipline. We do not follow any Tom Diick and Harry. Tomorrow in the Islamic world, if were to come under attack, who would we look towards to guide us into defence or indicate a different path to war? How would we know if the war is jaiz of haram – beneficial of harmful? We should thank Allah (SWT) for sending the best of His servant (Muhammad (SAWWS) and his pious progeny who are the beacons of light. We should Thank Allah for our Ulemah who are like Ambiah of bani Israel, And for wali-e-faqih who guided us from the slavery (period of the tyrant Shah Reza pahalvi) and establish a true Islamic republic and today for sayyied Ali Khameini who stands as our guardian and a guide on the political platform of this world. Also thank Allah (SWT) for Sayyied Sistani who (behind the scenes) guided Iraq from the clutches of US. After all this how can any person in his sane mind oppose our Ulamah, esp. the Wiliet-e-faqih? My sermon for the day - any criticism ?????? :))
  24. US soldier disciplined for hostage death? I find this extremely distasteful. One British person accidently killed and the soldier is disciplined BUT hundreds of thousands of muslims innocent civilians are killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan no person is ever descipilined!!! Is Muslim life so cheep?
  25. Most Muslims during the times of Imam (A) did not care about truth. the reason why there was a struggle between those who considered Ali(A) as righteous and others who tilted towards the other khalifs. Imam Ali (A) did not abandon the Muslims. Muhammad (SAWWS) is the mercy upon the whole of mankind and so are the Shias (true followers of prophet (SAWWS) and the Aiema(A)). Why do you expect the Shias to turn away from this course?
