  1. There is much evidence that Aisha was not 9 when she got married. For example, according to Tabari, she was born before Islam (during jahiliyah); so she was at least 15 or 16 when she got married.
  2. Salam sister Laylaa There is a big difference, here. The punishment in the next world is inflicted by God who never makes any mistake in his judgements. But fallible humans can never make 100% accurate judgements because we don’t know everything. So, I believe that when it comes to very painful severe punishments (such as burning someone alive to death), only God is entitled to inflict these kinds of punishments because He is infallible and never misjudges. Yes, that sin is very grave and disgusting but we don’t know what made them commit that sin ( we are not aware of the background). Execution (by hanging, for example) is a suitable punishment for such deviants but not burning alive. As to the narrations mentioned earlier, maybe Imam (a) burnt their bodies.
  3. Yes, it is mandatory for Muslims. The education is good in my opinion.
  4. As other members said, it is available and we can buy it from bookstores. We have the Bible and Bible Dictionary in our library.
  5. Goy (/ɡɔɪ/, Hebrew: גוי, regular plural goyim /ˈɡɔɪ.ɪm/, גוים or גויים) is the standard Hebrew biblical term for a nation.[1] The word nation has been the common translation of the Hebrew goy or ethnos in the Septuagint, from the earliest English language bibles such as the 1611 King James Version[2] and the 1530 Tyndale Bible,[3] following the Latin Vulgate which used both gentile (and cognates) and nationes. The term nation did not have the same political connotations it entails today.[4][5] The word "gentile" is a synonym for the Hebrew word Nokri (Hebrew: נָכְרִי) which signifies "stranger" or "non-Jew".
  6. Some parts of old and new testaments as well as some parts of the gospel of Barnabas. I love Psalms. It is beautiful.
  7. The word امیین is probabely derived from a hebrew word which means "nations". According to Persian Bible Dictionary by Mr.. Hawkes, the word امتها means some tribes other than Bani Israel who worshipped idols.
  8. مجلسی : و المراد بسبهم الإتيان بكلام يوجب الاستخفاف بهم، قال الشهيد الثاني رفع الله درجته: يصح مواجهتهم بما يكون نسبته إليهم حقا لا بالكذب حائری : و لا تصحّ مواجهته بما يكون نسبته إليه كذباً؛ لحرمته، و إمكان الوقيعة فيه من دونه. This is what some scholars say about that narration. مکارم : هذا و لكن ذلك لا يخلو عن إشكال. أمّا أوّلا لحرمة الكذب ذاتا، و لا يجوز التوصّل بالباطل إلى الحقّ، و أمّا الاولى فالبهت و البهتان- كما يظهر من متون اللغة- في الأصل بمعنى الحيرة و التحيّر، و لذا يقال بالأخذ بغتة بالعذاب البهت، قال اللّه تعالى بَلْ تَأْتِيهِمْ بَغْتَةً فَتَبْهَتُهُمْ و إطلاقه على نسبة ما ليس في إنسان إليه من هذا الباب لأنّه يحيّره كما صرّح به أهل اللغة، فكأنّ المراد: احملوا على أهل البدع من كلّ جانب و اجعلوهم متحيّرين حتّى لا يطمعوا في الفساد في الإسلام، فتأمّل.
  9. This narration is against Qur'an: And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge...6/108 The above narration also is not mutawatir and besides, it is mistranslated. Here, باهتوهم means "astounding them by presenting strong arguments": الوقيعة في الناس: الغيبة. والظاهر أن المراد بالمباهتة الزامهم بالحجج القاطعة .... From al-Kafi (footnotes)
  10. Insulting is forbidden in Qur'an and narrations. Imam Ali (a) told his followers: I don’t like you to use offensive language. You can, instead, criticize them (the enemy).
  11. If by cursing you mean using offensive language, then it is forbidden ( no difference whether you do it publicly or in private).
  12. Hafiz was not a Sufi. He criticized Sufis in his poems.
  13. Have you tried sudoku? Maths, algebra and logic are really interesting. If your daughter was older, I would suggest you to teach her how to create numerical puzzles or how to quickly solve an equation by finding the relationship between numbers...but she is only 7 therefore sudoku is a good option, I think.
  14. We can use the same argument for some of the narrations you posted. For example, this one: وبالاسناد عن ابن عيسى ، عن ابن الحجاج ، عن العلا ، عن محمد بن مسلم ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : قال لي : تمتعت ؟ قلت : لا ، قال : لا تخرج من الدنيا حتى تحيي الس نة We can say that Imam recommended to this person (not all people) to do muta. I am not saying that temporary marriage, in general, is a disgrace. What I am going to say is that it is permissible but not always "recommended" (mustahab)...depending on the conditions, it can be mustahab, makrooh, haram or wajib. It is a good option for a person who cannot permanently get married and may fornicate if he remains single. But what benefits does it have for a married person or for people who can have permanent marriage?! (Every mustahab act must have some benefits). What about the potential negative effects which it can have on married lives?! The narration below is authentic (both narrators are reliable): قال محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عبد الله بن سنان، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن المتعة؟ فقال: لا تدنس نفسك بها Abdollah ibn Sanan asked Imam Sadiq about muta and he replied: don’t disgrace yourself by practising it. The narrations below, which recommend not to temporarily get married to virgins, are also authentic: أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى في (نوادره) عن القاسم بن محمد، عن جميل ابن صالح، عن أبي بكر الحضرمي قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: يا أبا بكر إياكم والابكار أن تزوجوهن متعة. وعن ابن أبي عمير، عن جميل بن صالح، عن محمد بن مروان، عن عبد الملك ابن عمرو قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن المتعة، فقال: إن أمرها شديد فاتقوا الأبكار.
