  1. A generalization, but Probably both. We don’t need either. There is no need to exaggerate the fadhail of the ma’sumeen.
  2. in all sects there is khilaf. You realize that there are at least 4 madhahib in Sunni Islam and lots of sub-divisions within those?
  3. If one of the brothers here is going to leave Shiism and revert back to Sunnism, my advice is to find another ism. Sunnism is defective, the first "election" was defective and everything went downhill from there. Even the rather liberal Mufti "Abu Layth" has described this election as flawed but as he puts it, the best solution to the situation at that time. Best? Best amongst the worst, maybe. So even some sunnis agree that this election was not really Islamic, just a politically expedient move. This is also what one Sunni scholar said in the forum at Al-Mahdi Center in Birmingham. You
  4. for me this is a very important hujjah. i was a Sunni. Sunnis can argue about The fact that there are no specifics, no ayah about 12 imam, but the Quran is very clear about the the descendants of Nabi Ibrahim (عليه السلام) being Imams. An Imam isn’t just loved but not followed. He has to be followed. Any madhab which rejects this meaning of the Ayah IMHO, cannot be followed.
  5. Did you check with your marja? I think it’s discouraged but the definitive fiqhi answer should come from them not from this forum.
  6. Even the eyes that with the beings in Jannah are still a form of creation and limited to some degree. Even THAT eye will not be able to see Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى
  7. Why did Bilal Philips quote this: "As for previously mentioned verse, "Eyes cannot catch Him, but He catches all eyes", https://quran.com/6/103 It's absar no 'uyun That's just weird for someone who knows arabic to suddenly translate it wrongly. And we can see, but not with our eyes. Again look وَفِي أَنفُسِكُمْ أَفَلَا تُبْصِرُونَ , it it's not seeing with the eyes, it's basara not nadhara
  8. He doesn't deny imamah, but his opinion on imamah is flawed. I can no longer use his lectures.
  9. What was the point about Nahjul Balagha which MH brought forth which would "destroy" our arguments? He didn't state which khutba of Amir Al-Mu'minin it was. I would like to look it up. I mean the question which they keep on asking is pretty dumb. "Show me where in the Quran there are mention of 12 imams". "Why does Allah make it difficult for us, couldn't he just show it in the Quran about the 12 imams". Show me where in the Quran there are mention of 5 prayers. Seriously, why do these people to themselves. Isn;t there a hadith which states: صـلـّوا كـمـا رأيـتـمـونـي أصـلـّي
  10. Salaam I'm not Sunni, I was Sunni (following Imam Shafie (Rahmatullah Alaih)). Imam Shafie as you all know was a lover of Ahlul-Bayt. I came to Shiachat in 1997 when Bro Asad from Canada was the admin.
  11. Intercession or intermediary is not a new thing Jimmy. Even the Quran is an intermediary between us and AllahSWT. Haven't you asked yourself why you can't pray your own way? Why must you follow an intermediary like the Quran? I was born Sunni and I have no problems with the concept at all. Only problem I have with are those shias who think "mola" Ali will save us regardless of what our actions are, sort of like a Christian belief.
  12. Sayyid Abidi does not allow people do taqleed of him. All your questions are answered based on fatawas of your marja of choice.
  13. Salamun Alaikum, I don't understand why Sheikh Ariff is saying that mistakes are possible. See at timestamp 12:20. "But that DOES NOT MEAN if evidence is placed in front of them and that they are judging, there cannot be there a flaw in their judgement" I agree that it's possible that there could be other outcomes given a situation, all of which can still be acceptable in the context of the syariah, but what does he mean that it's still could be flawed?! That doesn't make sense at all. Our Imams have taqwa, knowledge, etc , to me, is a means to prevent them from making those flaws! I
  14. Sheikh Ariff along with other Shia and Sunni ulama have discussed this issue in a cordial environment. This debate with Asrar Rashid seems pointless because it's probably going to be similar to the ones with Dimasqiyah. Just lots of back and forth and both side loses. But just the title Adalat of the sahabah is a non-starter. Those 2 words don't go together.
  15. Sorry to bring this topic back to life again, but about the sermon 216, "......Therefore, do not abstain from saying a truth or pointing out a matter of justice because I do not regard myself above erring." The khutbah then proceeds with "....I do not escape erring in my actions but that Allah helps me (in avoiding errors) in matters in which He is more powerful than I." Seems clear to me that Imam Ali (AS) was indeed infallible with guidance from Allah (SWT), he was never independently infallible.
