    may Allah bless you on your birthday

  2. Dear Brother. This is regarding your question on mujtahid etc. One of the best aspects of the Jaafari school of Islam is the concept of ijtihad - constant learning and research. It is wajib for all followers of Shia Islam to follow (emulate) one of the marja-e-taqleed. These are the people who have spent their lives in researching the various aspects of Islam and the teachings of the holy prophet (pbuh) and their interpretations by the various imams (A.S.) Some of the well known marja-e-taqleed are Ayatollah Sistani, Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani, Ayatollah Ali Khamenai etc. In the recent past some known marja-e-taqleed have been Ayatollah Khoi and Ayatollah Khomaini. As soon as a Shia mulim attains puberty ie when the various apsects of the religion become wajib for them, it is enjoined upon them to choose to follow one of the maraje. This means that the muslim would follow all the interpretations as written in the Tawzee ul Masael (collection of the various aspects of the daily issues relating to how we follow our lives and religion) of the particular marja that they have chosen to emulate. These aspects are broad and wide ranging and cover pretty much the whole spectrum of questions that might arise in the day to day life of a muslim. The Tawzee is available online as well as in hardcopy format from many of the islamic book shops in Pakistan. It is said that any ibadat or religious acts performed by a muslim without them being a muqallid (follower) of one of the mujtahids will not be accepted. Also, once you have done your research and chosen to follow a particular mujtahid you may not change the taqleed (emulation) during the lifetime of the mujtahid. I hope I have not managed to confuse you TOO much. Please feel free to ask questions on this or any other related topic on this forum - I know that a lot of very knowledgeable people are members of the forum and would be only too glad to help. Also, I am from Dubai so in case you need any specific Dubai related clarifications, feel free to ask. Hoping to have replied to the best of my knowledge. Allah (S.W.T. ) knows best. Ma-Salaam.
  3. (salam) I was wondering if anybody can guide me to a website where I might be able to obtain the transliteration (not necessarily the translation although this would also be useful) of the different ziayarats and espedcially the izn dakhool (the short permission that is recited at the gates of the harams before entering). I need the transliteration in English, please. I have visited ziaraat.com and although it has a wonderful collection, it does not have all the ziyarats and the izn dakhool. Also, the izn dakhool that I did manage to find were the 'general' ones to be recited for all the harams. I have seen specific ones outside the different harams that I have been fortunate enough to visit. I am especially looking for the ones for Damascus urgently. Jazakallah
  4. (bismillah) (salam) Mr. Spencer writes: "..Unlike the cruise missiles or other missiles Israel uses with precision guidance to sergically (sic) attack targets - which offer variations in combustable limitedness even going as far as room-sensitive explosive capabilities by modulating the explosive charge to combust only at a pre-specified angle.." I only wish he had had the opportunity to have a look at ground realities before rambling on about the 'brave and mighty IDF'. I suppose it is difficult to see the facts since most of the news footage in the United States is either sanitised (at best) to suit the mainstream US intellect or is unashamedly biased in order to sway public opinion. Nevertheless, the massacre at Qana which killed mostly women and children should have made any sane person stop and think about the real intentions of the so called IDF. There were dead bodies of 8 month old babies found in the rubble there - one can hardly classify them as Hezbollah 'terrorists'. Not a single Hezbollah fighter's body was found in the ruins of the residential blocks in Qana. So where was the precision bombing that the IDF and US like to talk about. I contend that this massacre was in fact part of the precision bombing - it was precisely meant to kill and maime as many civilians as possible in order to try and make them rise up against Hezbollah. Alhamdolillah, that did not happen. On the contrary, even Sunnis in Lebanon are now more and more turning towards supporting their Hezbollah brethren as they see them as the only saviours of their beloved land against the Zionist/US plan to carve out a 'New Middle East'. Wa-as Salaam
  5. (bismillah) (salam) As brother Peaceful said this psycho lady has already made up her mind and closed it completely. Therefore, it may not be of much use to debate with her even with logic etc. By the way, who was the last female pope? Why are there no females as cardinals in Catholicism? Not that we take our guidance from them but perhaps this psycho lady might do well to 'get her own house in order' before trying to embark upon a campaign of mockery against the muslims. Does she know that Islam is the ONLY religion which specifies the rights of women - very clearly and explicitly. In no uncertain terms. Other religions gloss over the issue or make sweeping statements at best. Only Islam gives them their rights. Best of luck. WasSalaam
  6. (bismillah) (salam) Dear brother Akwa, This is going a bit off-topic but your reply came as shock to me. I always assumed that you consider Aisha Umm-ull-Momineen etc. due to her supposed closeness to the prophet (pbuh). If I understand correctly from your reply Aisha was pious, virtuous anyway regardless of her marriage to the prophet (pbuh). So where did you get this information from. And what made her so pious, pure, virtuous et al? I am now really confused as to what the Sunnis believe Aisha truly was. Please clarify. WasSalaam.
  7. (bismillah) (salam) As somebody above mentioned, the fatwa givers are a dime a dozen - especially in Saudi Arabia. Anybody with a long flowing beard and a thobe not reaching the ankles seems eminently qualified to issue edicts - and there will be feeble minded hard of thinking individuals who will take the idiot's words to heart. Hisbollah is a resistance organisation trying to fight for the rights of it's own, as well as the Palestinian, people. Shia and or Sunni does not come into the picture. Never have Hisbollah ever claimed to be fighting for the Shias or the Sunnis - as mentioned above they fight for the rights of their people and their land. And always in defence. Hisbollah is the only group to have defeated the zionist entity. On more than one occassion! That should speak for a lot. To give this resistance a sectarian blend - like what the Al Qaida cohorts are trying to do in Iraq is playing right into the hands of the zionists and oppressors. In fact I would not be surprised if these edict mongers were somehow being manipulated by the zionists! WasSalaam.
  8. (bismillah) (salam) I think our friend has already shown his higher knowledge by making such a statement. Perhaps the Mohammadi Trust should like to invite latom to educate the ignorant masses and to regale us with his supreme knowledge. On a more serious note, well done Mohammadi Trust for starting such lectures. Hope lots of momineen benefit from such a venture. All the best to the trustees. WasSalaam.
  9. (bismillah) (salam) Dear brother, What is it that you require to be done. I am not a college going person any more (finished a long time ago!) but in case I can be of assistance please let me know through ShiaChat. WasSalaam.
  10. (bismillah) (salam) It is my understanding that most of the people who named their sons Yazid did so before the incident of Karbala. I do not believe there have been many Yazids in history (although there are many living Yazids today in deed if not in name!) since the events of Karbala. Correct me if I am mistaken here. When there are many fine names to choose from, why would anybody want to name their offspring after a tyrant and a confirmed hell bound person. Even if there have been others who were not in the same league as Yazid ibn Muawia (L.A.), as I said why even try to have the remotest association with such a name and the character. WasSalaam.
  11. Dear brother Proud, You seemed to have completeley and conveniently forgotten some basic facts. 1. Palestinians are human beings as well. Shocked? 2. They are not all muslims - there are many christian Palestinians who are also fighting for their land. So this is by no means just a Jihad but a fight for ones right. 3. There have been many times more innocent persons killed by the valient F16 riding Israeli armed forces than by any crazed suicide bomber. 4. The only and only reason that Israel exists is becasue of the open and unashamed support of the USA. Militarily, economically, morally, politically. So let's not pat ourselves on the back claiming vistory in 3 wars due to Isreal's might. 5. The so called 'champion of democracy amongst the savages of the middle east' does not consider it fight to grant a vote to it's non Jewish polulation. Perhaps they also subscribe to the Bush School of Democracy. 6. At every UN panel the USA has seen it fit to use it's veto in favour of Isreal. And on almost every occassion against the world view. 7. On no occassion has Isreal agreed to grant a realistic state to the Palestinians. Being given s[Edited Out]s of land here and there and taking whatever they need in return is no formula for a state creation. Oh and there will be no right of return for the Palestinian diaspora to their own state. 8. Now that the Palestinians have voted for Hamas, why is the forementioned champion of democracy not recognising the government. And withholding the tax dollars and other revenue that is due to them. So much for encouraging dialogue and promoting peace. 9. Just because a suicide bomber is crazy enough to blow themselves up amongst civilians it should not be a carte blanche for the Isrealis to willy nilly inflict generalised punishment on whole localities of Palestinians. Two wrongs do not make a right. 10. The picture of the young Jewish boy killed by a bomber is very sad - I wish this forum's server had the disk capacity to store the pictures of every person killed Jewsih and Palestinian. I am at a loss though as to why you have chosen to publish this particular picture. Was this innocent boy the only victim of the craziness? Is he the only one with relatives who mourn and miss him? Was he the only one 'targeted' specifically? Or are there groups who are brazen and callous enough to inflict collective punishment on whole groups of people - young and old - and destroy their land and source of income. cf point 1 above. Just some 'facts' from a non-Palestinian who happens to have followed the conflict and is disgusted by the propaganda. Best regards.
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Thanks for the 'warnings' from the brothers and sisters against my inventing new laws - however, this was never the intention, as should have been obvious. I shall try and get the source for my (mis)information and hopefully stand corrected/absolved!! Sorry about the confusion. Was Sallam.
  13. (bismillah) (salam) Dear brothers/sisters, A cat is not najis when it is dry - however one must not come in contact with a wet cat (whatever the reason for it being wet - water, the cat licking itself etc.) as a wet cat is najis. WasSalaam.
  14. (bismillah) (salam) Dear brother Peaceful, If you believe the prophet (pbuh) could have made mistakes, can you please tell us how we may take anything that he said (the Quran included) to be the truth. Which of his actions/words were genuine and which were 'spoken in error'. Moazallah. It is our belief that the prophet (pbuh) was indeed a perfect human being and all his actions were guided by the will of Allah (SWT) thus there can be no concept of his making a mistake. WasSalaam.
