  1. I was wondering if anybody had a link to a book for children about what happens in the grave after death the shia perspective . There was a picture book on this topic i read, but I cannot find a link for it. Any resources would be helpful thanks
  2. If anybody has a Classic old noha (or even a new one, but i prefer old ones) please let me know, i travel alot and need some nohay's to listen to.
  3. Salaam Alaikum I was hoping to get some insight on a debate i was having with some Shia friends of mine at the Imambargah. The Discussion is whether or not Iran is the face of tashayyu. one friend friend said something along the lines of many people see it as such, since it is a "Shi`i" country, but the vast majority of the `ulamaa' (even in Iran) do not even agree with the concept of Al-wilaayat 'l-mutlaqa. The sort of oppression and abuses the Iranian regime has committed against great scholars is absolutely unacceptable. Politics does weird things to people. And no matter who you are, if
  4. Best thing to do is start praying, start taking control of your life. http://www.al-islam.org/shiism-imamate-and-wilayat-sayyid-muhammad-rizvi/concept-ahlul-bayt-tribal-or-islamic
  5. Where are you located. if your in the States go to Best Buy or PC Richards. they have some decent deals. last years models and the years before that are all quite cheap. you can get a decent laptop for like 300-400 dollars. even cheaper depending on the specs. if you get a smaller screen or a processor that is not the latest even less.
  6. I think it's because we get killed all over the world repeatedly.
  7. Sayed Ali Abbas Razawi if you havnt seen it, watch it.
  8. Salaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters I have a quick question on the hadith narrated by Imam Jafar Sadiq (AS) im pretty sure that meantions a 94 yr old man by the name of Unwan Al Basri. here is a link if you want to read the full hadith its like 2-3 pages long. I had a few questions regarding this hadtih 1) is this the complete hadith 2) what is the meaning of it, why did the imam turn him away? 3) there have been ulama that have said if you read this hadith everyday knowledge will flow into the person like light fills the room, has anybody else heard this?
  9. The Wire,a older HBO drama about Western Baltimore it ended in 2008, its amazing for somebody looking for a glance at urban culture in the inner cities.
  10. saw 42 the other day, did not do justice to jackie robinson, do not recommend it in the theater, wait until its on tv.
  11. well the first question the answer is simple, just look at a time line of the Alhul Bayt, there was a Imam alive since Hazrat Ali took the throne, there graves are all over the middle east. if you chronologically look at the years they were all one after another. as of right now the 12th Imam is in Occulation and will not appear until the day of jugement.
  12. in that situation, its not easy, just have to ask for forgiveness, no other way for a person to get back on their mother's good graces..
  13. Here are a few that come to mind, most of the popular ones are already mentioned. 1) Jamshīd al-Kāshī (Ghiyāth al-Dīn Jamshīd Masʾūd al-Kāshī 2) Mir Fendereski 3)Mir Damad (Mir Mohammad Baqer Esterabadi) 4) Mulla Sadra (Ṣadr ad-Dīn Muḥammad Shīrāzī) 5) Murtaza Motahhari aka Ustad Motahhari 6) Grand Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli (his specialty is transcendent theosophy make sure you are fully caffinated and alert when reading his works.. he's very deep i had to read each page twice...) 7) Hossein Nasr ( i had the pleasure to meet with him and talk with him for qutie a while, came to CT, USA f
  14. Just saw wvengers, and started getting into the show Homeland.. both are pretty good.
  15. Eckhart Tolle is the man, Ive bought every book he's written, a few yrs back he was on oprah, thats how he became popular. the stuff works, just have keep it in mind, its easily forgotten.
  16. At the risk of sounding like im beating a dead horse, whether you are shia or not (obviously not in this case) you cannot mix divine blood line with inbreeding clans that existed in Arabia? you dont have to like him, just have to know that he was the cousin and son in law of Prophet Mohammad (SAWW) the first prophet and a person of divine blood blood. All those attributes are not exhibited by the 3.
  17. Most people who consume caffeine, have been shown to develop a strong tolerance to the diuretic effect, but nonetheless ordinary consumption of caffeinated beverages contributes significantly to dehydration. so drink electrolytes and water when consuming coffee/lattes etc... There may be a modest protective effect against some diseases, including Parkinsons Disease, certain types of cancer. Caffeine can have both positive and negative effects on anxiety disorders.[citation needed] Some people experience sleep disruption if they consume caffeine, especially during the evening hours, but others
  18. All really good advice, the only thing i can add is that if you are in the states and are having cold weather right about now, then do not plant anything outside until Memorial day weekend (may 25, 26,27), its not recommended by the farmers almanac. due to the fact that we can get a frost at any time and that would kill the plants. I usually buy the preplanted ones that look like they were planted in ice cube trays, water them, keep them by sunlight in small pots and keep them indoors for a few weeks, let them get big. then put them outside by the time memorial day weekend rolls around. grow
  19. Well that's the problem to begin with bro, Imam Ali cannot be put in the same category as teh first three caliphs. if you look at the rest of the thread, you will see three normal (or abnormal what ever way you want to see it) human beings that are capable of lying, abuse, incest, bringing harm on the prophets family, etc.. are not one and the same, and do not have equal rights, you cannot represent Imam Ali (as) on the same level. wheather you find it corny or not, thats what the truth is, you cannot mix divine figures with normal humans. Ayatullah Sayyid Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini
  20. Cant believe they showed Imam Ali (as) face, Irans council of religious affairs will have a problem with that
  21. nowadays western direct rule already exists in most countries in Africa and Asia. CIA have there hand in a bit of everything. i can talk about this for a while, but its not needed. there are rebel factions that answer to money, you pay them and they will do anything and everything in their power to put someone out of power, or make it look like they are/ aren't the aggressor. look at Bahrain, Syria, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, most spots in Africa (ruf army). their economic situation is bad due to white collar corruption which is still better then the politicians in Muslim countries they
  22. Good Point, i think socio political unity can be accomplished but neither side will give up there beliefs period. Socio political unity is more important anyways for us. the other side can believe what ever they want, they will have to pay for it on the day of judgement, as well as our people in Bahrain, Pakistan, Syria, etc.... are not dieing due to there shia beliefs i'm a happy camper. have to agree to disagree and stop the wahhabi jealousy. I think the best way to do that is make a Muslim union, as of right now the only muslim union that exists is the arabic league, and those guys are
