  1. Why did Bilal Philips quote this:

    "As for previously mentioned verse,  "Eyes cannot catch Him, but He catches all eyes",


    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

  2. 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

    Then it's the same for Imamah. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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! If not, their sunnah cannot be used because it could be flawed!

    I like Sheikh Ariff but I don't agree with this conclusions. 

    What are your thoughts?

    Please don't insult him. I'm already seeing youtube videos made by other Shias calling him names, which I think is unacceptable. Remember that his contributions probably far outweigh what your or I might be able to do in a few life times.

  5. 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.

  6. SA,

    Saya tengok video ustadh Kamil dan Prof. Azmi debat di Bagan Serai kut, hujung tahun 2011. Pejabat Agama tu cuba nak perangkap diorang. Diorang nak Ustadh Kamil kata kalau tak percaya Imamat maka jatuh hukm kafir. Pasai apa la setengah2 ustadh sunnah kat Malaysia ni suka membuat fitnah. Hang tak suka Shiah to tak apa, tapi biaq la depa nak hidup.

    La ni hari2 saya dok tengok videp Sayyid Kamal Haydari. Selama ni saya tengok videp dia, fuuuh dahsyat sungguh dia ni. Di ni kalau debat dengan ustadh2 Malaysia, habih, hancur.

  7. SA,

    Do you have the link to the denial by Sheikh Al-Attas? That would be good to read. I couldn't find it through google.

    The time discrepancy is really something disturbing, too much false news.

    I'm really very doubtful about the loudspeakers being so loud. I know Sheikh Zuhairi has had an understanding with JAIS,

    Bro Faisal,

    Were you there during the raid?

  8. SA,

    SIs. Zareen, where did you see the news of the interview with Hassan Al-Attas, do you have a link? Al-Attas and Zuhairi are both classmates of the alim who is based in CA. He knows them well.

    Bro Faisal, were you there on the night of the raid?

    We are all praying for all of you AB followers in KL/Selangor.

    Also don't forget, the USA will never help you all because they do not like any Shias as they know most shias are Wilayatul-Faqih types which are in conflict with their foreign policies. So they would rather see you all suppressed.

  9. SA,

    Hajj Kamil Zuhairi is the classmate of an alim of California's biggest Hussainiyah. They were classmates while in Qom. He was very saddened of this news.

    Bro Faisal,

    Any truth in some people saying loud speakers were outside the building during the Ashura program? IF that we true, I think that should not have happened. However, I really doubt that allegation.

    What does Anwar Ibrahim has to say about this? I want to see he's stand, see if he has any backbone.

  10. Akh Adool,

    My opinion, since you posted here I assume you want some opinions (without the need for us to be rude).

    Move on, hopefully without your wife who as is, doesn't seem to be a good choice as a life companion. Just from past experience, it's just better to suffer the pain now and move on . If it was in the early stages, I would say try to patch things up best you can and stay together. But from what you say it looks like it's too late now.

    Don't worry, ask Allah (SWT) for assistance, and He (SWT) will replace you with a better wife. Maybe not as good looking. But she will take care of you and your deen.

    BTW, have you driven the F430 Scuderia? I've been in my bro's 360 CS and it's fantastic.


    thats what im arguing

    From what I have read at some traditionalist Sunni sites, they oppose any form attributed to Allah SWT even if it is claimed by some that the form is not like our form.

    In Manaqib Ahmad, al-Bayhaqi relates that he said:

    "A person commits an act of disbelief (kufr) if he says Allah is a body, even if he says: Allah is a body but not like other bodies." He continues: "The expressions are taken from language and from Islam, and linguists applied "body" to a thing that has length, width, thickness, form, structure and components. The expression has not been handed down in Shari`a. Therefore, it is invalid and cannot be used."

    I want to try and find this manuscript myself.

  12. Botta,

    What do you mean about Allah descending from the 7th Heaven? You mean what he said about descending from the minbar? This was said by Ibn Batoota but was said to be false as Ibn Taymiyya was in jail at that time. However it is said that his disciple Sulayman Al-Tufi Al-Hanbali said that about him and was reported by Ibn Hajr Asqalani.al-Ta'sis al-radd `ala asas al-taqdis

    ....But Allah's elevation over the world is not like that, rather He is elevated over it literally (i.e. in space). And this is the known elevation and the known precedence in his book al-Ta'sis al-radd `ala asas al-taqdis.

    Ibn Taymiyya and probably you believe that Allah (SWT) has a form, but the form as you have stated is not exactly known. However Allah (SWT) having some sort of a form is 100% correct. Is this true?

  13. Salamun Alaikum Nurul Islam,

    The last big sermon was at the Ghadir Khum after the Hajjutl-Widak. The speech is very long and is of utmost importance. It was not just a short announcement that the religion was perfected. The speech doesn't only say I've perfected your religion.

    The verse about the perfection of religion is:

    "Today I have perfected your religion and completed my favor upon you, and I was satisfied that Islam be your religion." (Qur'an 5:3)

    The verse that came down before 5:3 was:

    "O Apostle! Deliver what has been sent down to you from your Lord; and if you don't do it, you have not delivered His message (at all); and Allah will protect you from the people ..." (Qur'an 5:67).

    After 5:67 came down

    And AFAIK it this came just prior to the Khutbah of Ghadeer. The khutbah of ghadeer was, among other things to remind the people again about the status of Imam Ali (as) explicitly about what was announced earlier during Yaum Al-Dar

    Parts of quotation from Tabari (Taken from Sheikh Makarem Shirazi's site) about Yaum Al-Dar:

    Then, Prophet (s.a.) started speaking and said: O Bani Abdolmotalleb! By God, I do not know any youth among Arab presenting something to his tribe better than what I have presented! I have brought for you goodness in the world and hereafter, and God has ordered me to invite you to it. Which one of you is ready to support me in this mission to be my brother, administer and successor among you? All kept silent against Prophet’s (s.a.) request. Despite of being younger than all, and …, I said: O God’s Prophet! I will support you for this mission. Prophet (s.a.) showed me and said:

    Çäø åÐÇ ÇÎì ææÕíøì æÎáíÝÊì Ýíßã¡ ÝÇÓãÚæÇ æÇØíÚæÇ

    Surely, he is my brother, administer and successor among you. So, listen to his instructions and obey him. He adds: They stood up while laughing and told Aboutaleb: Mohammad has instructed you to listen to the instructions of your son and obey him.

    So as you can see, it's not the Shia who's making a big deal. The Prophet (SAW) made a big deal out of it, and as you know "wa ma ynatiqu anil hawa". The Prophet doesn't speak of his own desires, so ...it's Allah (SWT) who is making a big deal out of it. That is why HE (SWT) told the prophet, in 5:67, if you don't deliver the message as in the khutbah of Ghadeer it is as if, you have done NOTHING. Imagine all those years since the mabaath, all turn to dust IF the last message wasn't delivered. And only after the khutbah was done, was 5:3 revealed.

    About Muta'a as you know it was ALLOWED by the Prophet (SAW) and there is no verse by in the Quran which prohibits it. So if you question it, then you question the morality of the Prophet (SAW). The only difference between all Madhahib is "was it abrogated" and made haram? Shias say no. Sunnis say yes. That is another topic by itself.

  14. To keep it short... a clocks have hands as well, but they are not like the hands of man. They are simply called so because they "point" at time.

    If you are seriously interested, I could point you to an article or two.

    Is it a physical hand or a metaphorical hand? When I mean physical I'm not restricting it to a human like hand. I think this is what you mean right? It's really a PHYSICAL HAND, but the only question is maybe it looks like the hand of the clock or the hand or a man, etc. Right? but at the end of it you do believe in a physical hand, notwithstanding the real shape or dimensions.

    However from what I know the hands are just metaphorical.
