  1. Salaam Alaykum I am sorry to read about what has happened to you. Many individuals who have undergone abuse find this site very beneficial. It offers useful information in terms of coping and also useful numbers to contact for counselling- specifically for situations like yours. https://www.supportline.org.United Kingdom/problems/rape-and-sexual-assault/ There may be services that are more local to you. Hence why I suggest you visit your GP, but don't give out details of who the abuser is if you'd like that kept confidential. Remember, if you mention it to your GP, he/she will likely include it in your records. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) give you the strength to overcome this mental and emotional trauma. Ameen.
  2. Rather unfortunate that this man who belittled Imam Ali (عليه السلام) just so he can get one over the Shia's is considered a "pretty good scholar" in your opinion. If this was about done to Abubakr I dare say the Sunni view about this man would have been quite different. But because it is Ali...
  3. Just like yourself time is quite limited for me. However, I manage to do my memorisations by listening to the audio. You will be surprised by how much you will have picked up by the end of 2-3 weeks.
  4. Yet Bibi Fatema (عليه السلام) did not forgive him. For you it casts doubt on her personality, for us it casts doubts on Abubakrs. I don't think we have any more left to discuss on this issue Just because history hasn't recorded her using it doesn't mean I can't. What a silly argument. Think we are done here
  5. Yes she didnt quote the ayah. Her word is enough for us and not Abubakrs made up narrations found only in Sunnis books.
  6. They denied authentic narrations and relied on inauthentic ones. Like I mentioned, Albani rejects that notion. Talk about hypocrisy. But of course they have do do that because there is no possible way to reconcile the two.
  7. So why did she get angry with him if he quoted a supposed Hadeeth from her very own father? She should have been very happy that he saved her from usurping something and from going against Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and her very own father's wishes. It seems that in the Sunnis eyes the woman that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) chose as the leader of paradise got angry because she was denied worldly gains. What a sad judgement. However, I do empathise with you to an extent as you have to make a judgement and decide. Either the leader of paradise or Abubakr. We choose the former. You ask us to produce a Sahih narration that a father left inheritance for his child. Since when are these things publicised for the world to know? I highly doubt your dying wishes on how to distribute your wealth and properties will be public knowledge amongst your friends and neighbours. That is quite a ridiculous proposition. You also asked why didn't Bibi Fatema (عليه السلام) mention the Quranic verse. Given that history hasn't recorded her mentioning it doesn't make the verse or her claim any less valid. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
  8. Yes some of your scholars say that she couldn't have died being angry with him, but the fact remains that there are authentic narrations that this was the case. Albani concedes that too and rejects narrations of reconciliation that some of your scholars cling to as they are weak. There really is no argument about that. This does present a dilemma to the Sunni world because how can the leader of the women in Paradise and the daughter of the H. Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) get angry if someone said that her father did not leave her any inheritance? Surely she should have been very grateful that Abubakr saved her from obtaining a land and eating from it what was never meant to be hers. It would have been usurping. It is either that she heard and knew with absolute certainty from her father that Fadak was left for her, or that she was disappointed that her father did not leave her anything and got angry with Abubakr for breaking the bad news to her. Of course as Shias we cling to the former as it does not befit the character of the leader of paradise to act in this manner. Unless of course her right was denied from her. You mentioned that if non Muslims read this reaction of hers, they may doubt her personality. I wonder why you didn't consider that if non Muslims read this about her, they may doubt Abubakrs statement? As Shias our position is simple. The leader of paradise and the daughter of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) himself could not have mis heard her father about inheritance nor gotten angry with someone who potentially saved her from eating from a ghasbi land. As a Sunni your position is the opposite.
  9. Do you even know what this hadeeth talks about? Because if you did you wouldn't have posted it in regards to inheritance from the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
  10. Yes he did not leave any dirham or dinar. He left houses that his wives continued to occupy and Fadak. Don't see how this narration proves anything about Fadak
  11. Alaykum salaam Good luck. What uni was it?
  12. Salaam Alaykum Thank you sister Hameedah for posting this. We realise there is a real problem within our communities and hope that an event like this can be part of a solution. Looking at the age range, we certainly need more boys aged over 30 and more females in their early 20's. Inshallah its the first ever event organised by a Shia Mosque in the UK and we certainly hope to be able to make a difference. Any question about the event, please free to ask. Wassalaam.

    Essentially to make an animation like above. The book opens, pages flip and you have the page and hadeeth/quote of interest highlighted. I will supply the pictures for the book cover and the page of interest.
  14. Alaykum salaam. There is nothing wrong with bariatric surgery to lose weight.
  15. Salaam Alaykum I am looking for people who have these skills to help with the Shia4You project. Below is a link to the Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFoQEZEYbNT0kTRgqtL7q8g Lately the translators have been very busy and some are in the war torn Iraq. Hence, we are contemplating on shifting the way we present our material. Rather than translating a man who talks, I feel it is time to try and use animation or other new ways to get the message across. Below is an example of such a video on the channel: The material will not necessarily be about Shia/Sunni debate, but rather even stuff related to us Shias only. So if any of you think you have the skills to make a video like the above, or have new ideas let me know and hopefully we can propagate the message of Ahlulbayt (as). Wassalaam.
  16. Nobody denies she was the wife of the Prophet (saw). And no honest person can turn a blind eye to this narration too which puts some her actions in such a position that following her would attest to following Shaitaan as it was grossly misguided and unjust. When Talha, AzZubair and 'Aisha moved to Basra, 'Ali sent 'Ammar bin Yasir and Hasan bin 'Ali who came to us at Kufa and ascended the pulpit. Al-Hasan bin 'Ali was at the top of the pulpit and 'Ammar was below Al-Hasan. We all gathered before him. I heard 'Ammar saying, "'Aisha has moved to Al-Busra. By Allah! She is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter. But Allah has put you to test whether you obey Him (Allah) or her ('Aisha)." Now you can debate all you like of how the Prophet (saw) supposedly loved her, yet Allah (swt) sent verses down to condemn her and she lied to the Prophet (saw) and she hated Imam Ali (as). If you want evidences to each of them I would be glad to help.
  17. You do know that some companions were cursed by the Prophet (saw) himself? And some companions led battles that led to others companions being killed in it? How can you still keep silent about such companions? The sunni logic is really baffling
  18. You don't see the benefit to cursing even though the Prophet (saw) cursed some of his own companions. Anyway, what is the Sunni position regarding who made up the tens of thousands of soldiers in Yazids army on the day of Ashura?
  19. I didn't say it was to celebrate his death. It was done to celebrate the "day of barakah" as the Banu Umayya successfully managed to fabricate narrations regarding the Ark of Prophet Nuh (as) getting salvation etc etc. The point is that today the Sunni world as the poster pointed out will go bombing, fighting and doing takfeer on people if they say something about the Prophet (saw) or the 3 caliphs in a negative light. Yet, when it comes to his son, they remain silent. A hypocrisy that is glaringly obvious to us all. The Banu Umayya have managed to whitewash the day of Ashura by fabricating narrations so that their followers can celebrate this day as a day of happiness and forget about the great tragedy. I know this celebrations because I have been to Sunni mosques.
  20. Salaam A sad and famous latom
  21. A friend of mine sadly made halwa to sweeten the mouths of people in their mosque.
  22. Is that why Allah (swt) threatened to replace her with better muslims?? I get the impression that according to the Sunni logic, as long as you are a companion, anything you do or say against the Ahlulbayt (as) is okay. But if you are a companion who defied Abubakr and co., then it becomes a problem and those companions need to be abused and even fought to death- remember the Apostasy wars?
  23. Like I said in my previous post, Bibi Aisha left her home which she was refused to do so by Allah (swt), escorted by a full battle hard army that went on to spill the blood of the muslims unjustly. These two are facts. When you couple in the fact that she also hated Imam Ali (as) and had the courage to lie to the Prophet (saw) to his face and encourage his other wives to do the same, it leaves her in a very tricky position. You can choose to deny that she never lied to the Prophet (saw), she never left with an army and that she never hated Imam Ali (as). However, these are the facts and that is why the Shias do not see her favourably at all.
  24. Salaam Alaykum, When it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "Why, we only Want to make peace!" [2:11] Of a surety, they are the ones who make mischief, but they realise (it) not [2:12] Do you really think that Bibi Aisha was that naive that she went out with a full army behind her and yet she supposedly only wanted to achieve peace? Come on, get real please.
  25. Really useful tips. She uses the classical method of reading umpteen times whilst looking and then reading it without looking. I think the most useful point for me in that article was the point about having a memorisation partner. I can see how they would motivate each other and just make it really fun too. PS: I just finished Sura Jinn and I am beginning Sura Nuh Inshallah
