  1. If he is not your Marja3 he is your waliy al faqih ( political leader) .

    This is why I started this topic, he is not my Wali Al Fiqh...

    Ya true many people do not consider him as waliy al faqih , but Khomeini (may his soul rest in peace) established this , and i believe that we should have some consideration for him for Jihad and other political stuff and even small things like boycott

    Some consideration, yes... but to the point as some are telling me that I have to follow him blindly.... I think I have a mind on my own, and if it were to that, then why is it that we have so many other 3ulama2... i mean, he is Sayyid Al Qaed...

    And one of the reasons he has forbidden tatbir is for the political aspect or political view among others.

    Untill when are we supposed to please the world? Us Muslims, we reject 3/4 of the things that the western world does, but you do not see them banning something because it may insult us, or make them look bad, why is it that we have to sacrifice our rituals and our beliefs in order to satisfy the west??? BTW, just for the record, this year, we took permission from the City of Ottawa to do Tatbeer, shouldnt the media have jumped all over that and made the Shias look bad?

    He isn't my political leader , despite if he is my marja3 or not .

    What about shia who believe in the separation of politics and religion ?

    What about another Ayatullahs who have more knowledge from him (A3lam) ?

    What if he wrongly played politics ?

    Who accepted him  as the shia's political leader ?

    That is exactly what I was trying to get to.

    We call him(ha) Sayed al-qaed because we have been convinced by the concept of Wilayatul Faqih and we trust the experts who have told us that he is the most adequate person to be the wali of the ummah.

    Wallah is it good that people are conviced that he is the one, but which experts am I supposed to trust? Those who forced a marja3 under house arrest for the better part of his life? Or those who even disallowed a proper Fati7a done for his him?

    "Whoever accepts or denies something without proof then he has gone against the human nature(fitra)."

    Above are only a few of the examples, there is much proof about this...

    But when it comes to matters concerning the administration of the Islamic state or general matters concerning the Ummah, Waley al-Faqih has to be followed (regardless of which scholar you follow).

    I did not want to get to this, but, unless there is a Majliss Al Shura that decides who is to be the Walyat Al Faqih, then there is no reason for me to believe that you have just said.

    Again, I am sorry if I offended anyone, but this is truly what I believe, I am not trying to change anyone's mind, start a war, just trying to prove a small point that some of us may find it offensive when such words are thrown around.

    NEWS: Scott Ritter says US attack on Iran planned for June

    Scott Ritter, appearing with journalist Dahr Jamail yesterday in Washington State, dropped two shocking bombshells in a talk delivered to a packed house in Olympia’s Capitol Theater. The ex-Marine turned UNSCOM weapons inspector said that George W. Bush has "signed off" on plans to bomb Iran in June 2005, and claimed the U.S. manipulated the results of the recent Jan. 30 elections in Iraq.

    Olympians like to call the Capitol Theater "historic," but it's doubtful whether the eighty-year-old edifice has ever been the scene of more portentous revelations.

    The principal theme of Scott Ritter's talk was Americans’ duty to protect the U.S. Constitution by taking action to bring an end to the illegal war in Iraq. But in passing, the former UNSCOM weapons inspector stunned his listeners with two pronouncements. Ritter said plans for a June attack on Iran have been submitted to President George W. Bush, and that the president has approved them. He also asserted that knowledgeable sources say U.S. officials "cooked" the results of the Jan. 30 elections in Iraq.

    On Iran, Ritter said that President George W. Bush has received and signed off on orders for an aerial attack on Iran planned for June 2005. Its purported goal is the destruction of Iran’s alleged program to develop nuclear weapons, but Ritter said neoconservatives in the administration also expected that the attack would set in motion a chain of events leading to regime change in the oil-rich nation of 70 million -- a possibility Ritter regards with the greatest skepticism.

    The former Marine also said that the Jan. 30 elections, which George W. Bush has called "a turning point in the history of Iraq, a milestone in the advance of freedom," were not so free after all. Ritter said that U.S. authorities in Iraq had manipulated the results in order to reduce the percentage of the vote received by the United Iraqi Alliance from 56% to 48%.

    Asked by UFPPC's Ted Nation about this shocker, Ritter said an official involved in the manipulation was the source, and that this would soon be reported by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist in a major metropolitan magazine -- an obvious allusion to New Yorker reporter Seymour M. Hersh.

    On Jan. 17, the New Yorker posted an article by Hersh entitled The Coming Wars (New Yorker, January 24-31, 2005). In it, the well-known investigative journalist claimed that for the Bush administration, "The next strategic target [is] Iran." Hersh also reported that "The Administration has been conducting secret reconnaissance missions inside Iran at least since last summer." According to Hersh, "Defense Department civilians, under the leadership of Douglas Feith, have been working with Israeli planners and consultants to develop and refine potential nuclear, chemical-weapons, and missile targets inside Iran. . . . Strategists at the headquarters of the U.S. Central Command, in Tampa, Florida, have been asked to revise the military’s war plan, providing for a maximum ground and air invasion of Iran. . . . The hawks in the Administration believe that it will soon become clear that the Europeans’ negotiated approach [to Iran] cannot succeed, and that at that time the Administration will act."

    Scott Ritter said that although the peace movement failed to stop the war in Iraq, it had a chance to stop the expansion of the war to other nations like Iran and Syria. He held up the specter of a day when the Iraq war might be remembered as a relatively minor event that preceded an even greater conflagration.

    Scott Ritter's talk was the culmination of a long evening devoted to discussion of Iraq and U.S. foreign policy. Before Ritter spoke, Dahr Jamail narrated a slide show on Iraq focusing on Fallujah. He showed more than a hundred vivid photographs taken in Iraq, mostly by himself. Many of them showed the horrific slaughter of civilians.

    Dahr Jamail argued that U.S. mainstream media sources are complicit in the war and help sustain support for it by deliberately downplaying the truth about the devastation and death it is causing.

    Jamail was, until recently, one of the few unembedded journalists in Iraq and one of the only independent ones. His reports have gained a substantial following and are available online at dahrjamailiraq.com.

    Friday evening's event in Olympia was sponsored by South Puget Sound Community College's Student Activities Board, Veterans for Peace, 100 Thousand and Counting, Olympia Movement for Justice & Peace, and United for Peace of Pierce County.


    NOTE: Dahr Jamail will make three more appearances in the Puget Sound area this weekend: (1) SATURDAY, FEB. 19, 7:00 p.m., at the Kirkland Congregational Church, 106 5th Avenue, Kirkland WA.

    TATBEER is not HARAM

    I Repeat not haram..

    ppl who say its haram try to cause rift and division amongst the shia...

    well am surprised how prson like you talkin about such a subject and dont know that alsayyid Alqaed has considered altatbear a taboo.. so better we not show our faith by harmin our selves but by true actions and sencere work..

    I dont mean to be rude or anything, and I'm sorry i had to use this person's response as an example, but is it just me or do others also think that when such a comment is given, it is as though the ruling of all other Maraje3 becomes null and void, therefore there is no need to argue? I dont want to make this into a whole hate thread. Personally, I think it is rude when others call him Alsayyid Alqaed, not to the Marja3 himself, but to other members, who may not agree with that certain point of view.

    I used to work at the Pizza PIzza call center in ottawa (they have three in ontario, ottawa, hamilton and toronto) and i just finished working there, i just thought i'd share my resignation letter.

    Dear Franchise Owners Ltd.

    I regret to inform you that I no longer wish to be part of your organization for reasons which are rather unfortunate and disappointing. I have come to the decision based on a number of factors all of which were under the control of my managers and were not handled in accordance with fair treatment. The primary factor which led me to come to this decision is one of which rather ridiculous, disappointing, and embarrassing on the behalf of the company.

    The reason of which I speak of in such degrading terms came about in mid-December when my grandfather fell gravely ill in Bahrain, the country in which he resides. Since I had not been there in over 3 years and seeing as how my grandfather was said to be on his last months, my father decided to invite me to Bahrain, with a plane ticket that was paid for, in order to meet with him for the possible last time. Although I was aware that Christmas time is the busiest time of the year and that no one was allowed to leave, I was also under the impression that my managers would have the empathy and decency to understand the situation at hand. However, such was not the case as, to my surprise, both of my managers refused my request to leave. This incident did not allow me to visit my grandfather for the last time, which, as anyone knows, is very traumatic. However, this matter was worsened when I discovered that another employee was allowed to leave on vacation during the same period of time that I had requested on a less urgent matter. Helene D. was taken off the schedule from mid-December to the time of January 3rd 2005. When asked as to where she had been gone, several eluding responses were given until the matter became clear to me that the managers had given her time off during the so-called busiest time of the year without any further consequences (i.e. loss of job, reprimand).

    At this point, the problem to me had escalated from slight disappointment to sheer anger as I felt that the company that I worked for cared neither for my personal family needs nor for my dignity as I had been deceived and lied to. The issue further worsened when looking at the total amount of money that was lost during this unsuccessful attempt to visit a dying grandfather since the airfare ticket has now become null and void and re-imbursement is not possible at the time.

    This is why I have come to the conclusion that Pizza Pizza Ltd is no longer a company which I wish to be part of or support in any way due to the lack of decency and deception that I was subjected to. I hereby tender my resignation and any respect I had previously gained as an employee of this company.
