  1. I have a question on the nature of Barzakh. Is it true that already in the Barzakh you are being punished for sins and rewarded for living a good life, before yaum qiyama? If that's the case then how are those rewards and pubishments different from experiencing Janna and Hell after yaum al-qiyama? What is the relation between Barzakh and Janna/Hell? Also, do the Imams peace be upon them go to Barzakh? Is that where they are now?
  2. Thank you, is this answer based in any marjas fatwa? Could you quote any?
  3. Mistakenly I have been using namaz timetable which is according to the Sunni method, which means sometimes I prayed out of time (according to Shia method). Considering it was a genuine mistake that I wasn't aware of, do I have do qadha for the ones that were out of time?
  4. Population of Medina What was the estimated number of residents of Yathrib/Medina at the time of the Prophet's (saws) arrival there and generally throughout the Prophet's life? How many Muslims were there before the Prophet's arrival? How many Muhajiroon settled there after Hijra? Did any towns/settlements other than Mecca and Yathrib have significant numbers of Muslims at the time of Hijra?
  5. I never said anything about anything being halal or haram, my question is not suggesting that I believe hijab should not be worn or it's non-wearing shouldn't be punished, I simply want to know the exact fiqhi basis for this issue and whether it was discussed in pre-modern times or only came up in modern times.
  6. so is there a text on this issue? You can just provide a summary of it and say which scholar said so and in which book.
  7. Ok so basically the answer is: none of the classical fuqaha ever discussed this particular issue?
  8. Why would I easily find references in the text just because I used the term "classical fiqh"? I never claimed to be an expert, if I was one I wouldn't be asking others. I'm not sure what nerve I touched that makes you guys so confrontational about this issue. It's a simple question I'm asking and the answer only requires someone competent to provide me with some actual quotes or summaries with a reference.
  9. Many traditional Muslim societies, South Asian or African, had plenty of women not wearing hijab or wearing it in a way that falls short of what's prescribed by fiqh, for example loose scarves exposing some hair, this is not some modern thing.
  10. If that's the case then you should have no problem providing me with an answer to the question I am asking: what is the fiqh-prescribed way of dealing with a woman not wearing hijab in public. Quotes from pre-modern scholars or summaries of their opinions with references.
  11. The question had nothing to do with Hijab being wajib or not. There are many things which are wajib in Fiqh but their non-fulfillment carries no punishment or other legal consequences. The question is very simple - can someone please quote fiqhi opinions of classical, pre-modern fuqaha mentioning punishments or other ways of dealing with women who don't wear hijab in public.
  12. In classical, pre-modern works of Fiqh, did any Fuqaha establish any punishment for a woman not wearing the Hijab in public? Or not wearing it properly (for example, wearing veil that still shows some hair)? And how was it enforced in pre-modern Muslim societies, considering that what came to be known as "religious police" is a modern phenomenon? (I don't really want to turn this into a debate on whether Hijab should be enforced by law today, I'm mostly interested in any references to whether this was at all debated by classical scholars)
  13. surely our hadith collections contain countless stories from the Prophet's (s) life, it doesn't necessarily have to be a "biography" in the sense of full chronological account of his life. I take it you can confirm that these stories are not to be found in our hadith collections either? Also, is Yaqubi not considered an early "Shi'a"(or at least Shi'a-leaning) historian? Surely his Tarikh have to contain at least some partial biography of the Prophet, are these stories there? What about the modern Shi'a biographies of the Prophet, where do they take their primary material from? Did any of the modern biographers include these stories? I'm just trying to establish whether these stories can be found in ANY Shi'a literature.
  14. are they mentioned anywhere in the early Shi'a literature?
