    786abdullah786 got a reaction from ss99 in Enforcement of Hijab in classical Fiqh   
    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.

    786abdullah786 got a reaction from Gleb in What Is Wrong With Tafwid (delegation)?   
    call me stupid but I still don't see what is the difference between tafwid and wilaya takwiniya as there seem to multiple explanations of the first concept and no proper definition, by definition I mean pointing out exactly what tafwid is and what tafwid isn't.
    Is the definition of Tafwid "giving the control over all affairs of creation to the Masumeen even though it was Allah who is the original creator of all things"? Is there anything to add or qualify to this definition? Because if thats pretty much what Tafwid is then how is it different from Wilaya Takwiniya which, as I understand, is giving the Masumeen control over everything in creation (over every atom in the universe as some scholars have put it) but by permission of Allah. In both cases the Masumeen have actual control but this control is not independent as it ultimately comes from Allah. So back to my original question - why is one shirk/kufr and the other 100% fine? I'm really confused and struggling with this...

    does it mean that according to Tafwid Allah created the Masumeen ONLY and NOTHING ELSE and then they created EVERYTHING ELSE? Or Allah created the entire creation first and then gave the managing of this creation, including life and death, to the Masumeen? If the first is true then that would be a substantial difference between Tafwid and Wilayat al-Takwiniya. If the second is true then I still see no substantial difference.
    As for Izrail, he doesnt decide about life and death does he? He doesn't have CONTROL over life and death, he simply takes people away when Allah decides their time is up, right? He just performs an almost robotic function. So its irrelevant when discussing Tafweed and Wilayat al-Takwiniya which both assume the Masumeen have full control over everything, even if by permission of Allah.

    so what is the opinion of the scholars on this concept of tafwid? Was mufawidah sect considered heretical?
    and how is this concept different from the concept of wilayat takwiniyah?

    From what I know he has recently started his studies in the Hawzah of London. Other than that he has no formal religious education. I shall clarify before any gangsta jumps on me with accusations - im not saying this to belittle him but just to clarify that he is not a Shaykh. He is just an orator. And this is actually part of the problem for me - many of us look forward to popular orators' lectures more than proper scholars' lectures and we pay them a lot more.

    'celebrity status THAT PPL GIVE HIM' - if you see any personal insult against Sayyed Nakshawani here then you must be as smart as many of your gangsta idols. And yes, the so-called gangsta culture is part of pop culture, in fact these days its the major part of popular music scene and even the Britneys and Timberlakes and Aguileras want to cooperate with black rap artists. Popular culture is a broader term than what is usually being referred to as 'pop music' by which the sweet likes of Britney and boybands are meant. The fact that something began as 'subculture' or 'counterculture' does not change the fact that it is in fact a niche part of popular culture. Popular culture is not limited to its most fashionable or best selling aspects. labels that gangsta rappers record for are usually owned by the same major labels that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake record for and you can see their videos on the same TV stations that you see Britney on and young gangsta wannabees give gangsta rappers the same idol status as a 'pop' music fan would give to Oasis. The funny thing is that i actually like many rap artists myself but what I cant comprehend is how a Muslim would drop Islamic akhlaq/manners to adopt the gangsta wannabe culture/ways of addressing people, etc. Same thing about Sayyed Nakshawani, i obviously enjoy his lectures as most shias do but the new celebrity-like phenomenon that he is a part of (along with some other speakers and thats what i mean by phenomenon, not that Sayyed Nakshawani is a phenomenon on his own) troubles me.

    I think i have said clearly that im talking about a phenomenon not individuals.
    So Solid Shia, first of all when you are talking to a Muslim brother you might want respect to be your priority rather than a gangsta wannabe slang pose (altough it may explain your acceptance for pop-Shiaism as you are already heavily influenced by pop culture anyway). Its nice for brother Ammar Nakshawani to do private majalis for free at least, really good to hear that.
    And yes I have discussed this with people, including a few scholars who share these concerns (again, concerns are about the phenomenon and not individuals).

    From my understanding, traditionally it was not a practice for a speaker to set a fixed charge before the majlis. It was obvious that he is going to be paid but there was no fixed charge sending a message that he will not do it for less than such and such amount. And i dont think there were also conditions set by the speaker about the quality of his stay or travel (a hotel nothing below 4 stars, such and such class on the plane, etc.). I think these are things that came with this new generation of speakers like Sayyed Nakshawani. Of course i dont mean any disrespect for him or anyone else personally but this new phenomenon of pop-Shiaism as i call it kinda troubles me.

    I should have known better not to include such controversial names as Yaser al-Habeeb in my question. MY QUESTION IS NOT ABOUT HIM. My question is whether there were ANY significant Shia scholars, particularly in the classical era of Al-Mufid, Saduq, Tusi, etc. who were of the opinion that Sunnis are not Muslims.

    786abdullah786 got a reaction from Haydar Husayn in Mulk Al-Yamin In Modern Day Wars   
    Abu Hadi but only some scholars believe that things like declaring war are prerogatives of a Masum Imam. Others believe that Wali Faqih has the authority to do so.
    The 3 conditions you mentioned might just be according to Ayatullah Fadlallah who was know to have differed on many issues from other scholars, with all respect due to him.
    For example, I'm quite sure we have instances during the lifetime of the Prophet (s) where women were taken captive as non-combatants, simply as wives of combatants. Banu Qurayza being one example, men fit for combat were executed, women, old men and children, so all non-combatants, were made slaves. I cant magine there being so many female combatants in those days to warrant a whole institution of mulk al-yamin for them.

    786abdullah786 got a reaction from Aabiss_Shakari in Who was Ayatullah Abu Alfathel Alburqai?   
    "Ayatullah al-Udhma" is a title given to an Ayatullah that reached the level of Marja al-Taqlid and is a source of emulation for his followers mainly through a book called Risala which is a complete manual of laws so to speak. The number of individuals with this position and this title is very limited and they are all very well documented, not just contemporary ones but historical ones as well. In other words, if this person ever existed there would be lots of documentation on him. Especially since it would be a big deal, in fact - A HUGE ENORMOUS HUMONGUOUS deal for a person of his rank to convert to sunnism and this would be well exploited by the Sunnis, this guy would become a celebrity in the Sunni world, we would have countless interviews, videos, pictures, etc.
    Instead all we have is books that could have been written by anyone and attributed to him, a really dodgy ancient picture and some farsi speaches that are simply below the level of such a highly qualified scholar. Oh, and Mr abumuslimkhorasani repeating his mantra of who this man was with no proofs behind it whatsoever.

    I'm sure that on such a sensitive issue they would consult religious experts and wouldn't produce some silly musical. sure, it wouldn't do the story justice but so what, nothing ever will. I regularly hear maulanas from minbars not doing Karbala justice. So I'm sure that despite all the flaws it would be a good thing. Even better if Hollywood did it, the reception would be greater.

    Please don't limit this thread to fiqhi issues. Most people follow fatwas not ahadith anyway when it comes to fiqh, especially since none of us will be able to tell how authentic these ahadith are or whether there are any others saying something else on the same issue. I think we are more in need of ahadith on issues of theology, ethics, history etc.

    I don't think the topic is about whether tawasul is permissible or not and I think it shouldn't go down that route. Most of us know the arguments for and against, the question here is why did our notion of it only arise (as it seems) quite late, why is it absent in the books of early scholars such as Mufeed? Especially since we are talking about books covering all aspects of our belief system, why is it not there?
