  1. Wa alaykum assalam. Indeed. I’ve never seen a report that endorses emptying the mind. We should be full of tafakkur and tadabbur about our creator. Judging from the chain, I believe that hadith is sahih.
  2. Wa alaykum assalam sir, 1. You can feel free to ask, I will try my best to get back to you, though I won't always have the answers. 2. I have not done any grading, but I welcome it. 3. Thank you, I've fixed it.
  3. Salaam alaykum, For the Thaqalayn Library project, I have spent the last few months translating the Amali of Shaykh al-Saduq. On the occasion of Amir al-Mu'minin's birth anniversary, I would like to share some of the sayings attributed to him in this book. Many of these sayings have not been translated into English before. Please keep me in your du`a'! - حدثنا أبي (رحمه الله)، قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن الهيثم بن أبي مسروق النهدي، عن الحسين بن علوان، عن عمرو بن ثابت، عن أبيه، عن سعد بن طريف، عن الاصبغ بن نباتة، قال: قال أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) ذات يوم على منبر الكوفة: أن
  4. Wa alaykum assalam, al-Kulayni’s al-Kafi, Saduq’s Kamal ad-Deen, Amali, Khisal, and `Uyoon Akhbar ar-Rida, Nu`mani’s Ghayba, Tusi’s Ghayba and Tahdheeb, Saffar’s Basa’ir ad-Darajat, Himyari’s Qurb al-Isnad, Kashi’s Rijal, and Muslim’s Sahih.
  5. "Sunnism" ultimately isn't one sect either. It is composite of several schools of `aqida (Athari, Ash`ari and Maturidi being the main ones), several schools of fiqh (Hanafi, Shafi`i, Maliki, Hanbali), Sufi turuq, and other trends. Twelver Shiism is comparable in size to any of the major Sunni groups. Perhaps it is relative, but I don't know if a "minor sect" by definition could compose of the majority of people in 4 countries and a significant minority in many others. Shiism is larger than many major world religions. It is also far more politically consequential than most sects. Ther
  6. In the modern economy, most couples are working (in one way or another), which means that most individuals (men and women) will (at some point) take up some of the cooking/cleaning responsibilities. If you are a woman who plans on having children, then there will be long periods of time where you are at home (especially when the kids are very young) and your husband may need to be working harder. In those situations, you may need to do more cooking and cleaning while he is at work. This however is the general trend, and not necessarily the case in every house. @starlight put it best: no c
  7. These are some narrations on the matter (have not checked their asaneed): 41 - في عيون الأخبار في باب مجلس الرضا عليه السلام عند المأمون مع أهل الملل والمقالات وما أجاب به علي بن الجهم في عصمة الأنبياء صلوات الله عليهم حديث طويل وفيه يقول عليه السلام: واما قوله في يوسف عليه السلام: ولقد همت به وهم بها فإنها همت بالمعصية وهم يوسف بقتلها ان أجبرته لعظم ما تداخله، فصرف الله عنه قتلها والفاحشة، وهو قوله: كذلك لنصرف عنه السوء والفحشاء يعني القتل والزنا. In `Uyoon Akhbar ar-Rida: In the chapter on the gathering of ar-Rida عليه السلام at [the court of] al-Ma'mun with the People of the
  8. Salam, brothers and sisters please for the sake and love you have for imam Hussayn (عليه السلام) pray for me I need to be pregnant after having misscarriage in May 2020 please

    1. Qa'im


      WS, will pray for you

  9. Sometimes ‘Allamah al-Majlisi explains the strength of a hadith despite its technical weak isnad in Mir’at al-‘Uqul. It’s important that we read his commentary in Mir’at al-‘Uqul and not just the grading. “Mu’tabar” can be vague.
  10. Religion and science have been compartmentalized by artificial frames. However, they each must be challenged to rise above their imposed limitations. An essay by Dr. Idris Samawi Hamid. http://www.bliis.org/essay/religion-science/
  11. The Historicity of Ziyarat al-Jami’a al-Kabira This article explores the sources, transmission, context, content, and controversies of Ziyārat al-Jāmiʿa al-Kabīra. The ziyāra is a text in the collective memory of the Imāmī Shīʿī milieu that has been the subject of many commentaries. Ziyārat al-Jāmiʿa al-Kabīra contains many cross-references to Quranic verses, Shīʿī aḥadīth, and other duʿā’ material. The transmission of the ziyāra has been the subject of criticism by some contemporary figures, but this article seeks to position this ziyāra in its appropriate historical context by demonstra
  12. I don't take my knowledge from Wikipedia. A fasiq is not always a kafir. A fasiq is anyone with a reputation of sinning in public. All people sin, but there is a difference between sinning privately and repenting, and sinning publicly and not repenting. A fasiq can still be forgiven and pardoned by Allah, and a fasiq can cease their sinning and repent, and become a righteous person in the sight of Allah. I agree, not praying is a far heavier sin than abandoning hijab out of taqsir. No debate there. This is not a male-female issue - I'll call any man a fasiq if he is publicly sinning
  13. The woman wearing less has other pressures to wrestle with: the pressure to keep up with the latest fads, styles, and brands; to pressure to work to afford all of this, the pressure to be sexy/hot, the pressure of having your body being judged and compared by men, the pressure of jealousy from other women, the pressure riya'. No one denies that wearing a khimar has its difficulties, especially in warmer weather (most western countries are cold for half the year, so this is less of an excuse here). But this does not mean that the freedom of the alternative needs to be idealized and envied.
  14. Ws, From my understanding: 1st century - early 2nd century manuscripts have been found of Sahifa Hammam bin Munabbah and components of Kitab Sulaym b. Qays. I don't know about the manuscript tradition of Muwatta' Malik b. Anas, Musannaf b. Abi Shaybah, Musannaf `Abd ar-Razzaq, and the 16 Usul, but I believe they can be accurately dated to the time allotted above. I would not take the survival of these works in later compilations to be a reason for much doubt. Once these small booklets were put into larger compilation, there was no need to carefully preserve the booklets a
