  1. Because it is easy to wish to be one but hard to fulfill what needs to be done, which could include massive sacrifices. Most of us are not motivated enough to make big sacrifices. It is easy to cry during Muharram and sing praises of the Ahlul Bayt but how many of us have the character the make huge sacrfices. Not many.
  2. It may have been a metaphorical connection of some sort in the beginning and since it is not easy to explain, it turned believers into agnostics.
  3. Can happen, But nothing has happened in ziarat towns for a long time.
  4. Thanks brother for your comment. However, please note that hadith books contain only a small part of all the hadiths that were churned out. So if you consider all the narrators who have ever contributed to the hadith corpus, you will find that "most" tweaked a bit or more.
  5. That is the nature of history in general and Islamic history in particular. Every narrator adds or subtracts something because he doesn't like everything that he hears, and therefore changes it suitably.
  6. True. However, we don't really pray to our Imams. The Islamic view is that all of God's top brass are essentially alive. (Q. 2:154) talks specifically about those who have lost their lives for the sake of God. But the premise can also be extended to others among God's choicest men and women. And the Shia view is that we can even ask them for assistance in resolving our problems. They are alive and have the power and ability to attend to us. But prayer in the sense of worship - that is only the Lord's prerogative.
  7. You are right. There is no need to criticize anyone to exalt someone else. But to keep the facts of history alive, we must not abandon a critical study of everyone's life, including the Prophet's family and friends, Otherwise history will pass into the dust heap and be forgotten.
  8. It is very safe. A very thrilling and out-of-this-world experience. It would be best if you organize your trip with a group.
  9. Brother, Sorry to interrupt your beautiful discussion. But I think the Sermon on the Mount sums up the same teachings as the Quran. And it sounds reasonable to assume that all prophets had the same teachings because they all came from God.
  10. The attempt to download the condensed list failed. Tried 4 times. Is the problem with my computer or with my Internet? But don't worry, I know that my sins are so numerous that paper will run out and the ink will dry up before they can be fully written down. Therefore I am relying entirely on God's mercy. But I still don't understand why everyone with a pass ( 51% - 100%) should go to the same heaven. Or everyone with a fail (0% - 49%) should all share the same hell. And what will happen to those on the border, who neither passed nor failed, but managed to get more than 49% but less then 51%? My feeling is that there is a lot more to it than our scholars and our books tell us. Only God knows the answers while, thanks to the Internet, we argue endlessly over nothing.
