  1. Why there is so much death? If you are materialistic man then death is a bad thing. But this is not true if you have a religious view specially Shiism. I give you tranlation of one of the greatest sufi and Muslim alim in the history of Islam. His name is Rumi. It is on my mind every morning and say it every night, Why am I not aware of my own self. Where did I came from? Why did I come? Where am I going? In the end, you have not shown me my nation (he says this line to God as a Dua)? I am really confused. Why did he created me? Or what was he trying to achieve by creating me? My life belong to
  2. (salam) I have two questions that has bothered me for a while :dry: . These question may be touchy but they have been bothering me for a while and I like some answer. Also write wether you are shia or sunni. 1) I am just wondering why did Umar ibn al-Khattāb attacked Persia and what Islamic law allows aggression? 2) Under what Islamic Law, did Umar ibn al-Khattāb made newly conquered Persian into slaives? I say this since the wife of Hussein ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib was the daughter of the Persian King which Umar arrested and claimed she was a booty of war. The person that killed Umar ibn al-K
  3. Well the answer is simple, Every physical thing is limited and dependent by definition since evrything we know is like that. If literally say god has a body it is like putting limit on God, which Muslims believe to be unlimited (Some sunnis and their hadith point out that god has a body though, but the large majority of ulema refuse this). So Muslims relate to God through his attributes. These attributes include his 99 name which you can find online.
  4. There is only one problem with this. How can Salman and Miqdad be deputy of prophet with Umar and abu bakr. They had a disagreement over the caliphate and succession of the prophet. salman and Miqdad did not gave their aliegance until Ali (as) gave his (reference in Peshwar nights). This does not make sense at all,
  5. Now my brother listen to my advice, You should never say you want to convert to shiism or Sunnism. Shias and Sunnis are muslims and by saying convert you are saying that they are very different. The main difference shia and Sunni is doctrine of Imamah. A sunni whom accepts the doctrin of Imamah is a Shia even he does not accept other doctrins of shiism. And Peshwar Nights is a very good book.
  6. Now one thing for the people whom are not informed about Shia doctrin. Under traditional shiism a nation cannot have Islamic governments such as islamic republic of Iran. Since Islam is perfected, the people whom run the state need to be perfect. One mistake and the state is no longer Islamic. So only infallible Imams can claim to run a Islamic State. This rule was given since alot of caliph did wrong and said that they are muslim and Obey the proplet but in fact they did not.
  7. Well I do not know any of you are persians but I can assume that all of you are Muslim wether sunni or shia does not matter. Now Let's start with Iran becoming Muslims. There are some evidence that shows at some of the persian towns were forcefully became Muslim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Zoroastrians and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Persianism_by_Arabs). Now the question of Shi'ism. First of all i want to make sure that you all know that Iranian were always sympathetic toward the alids (Family of Imam Ali AS). This was due to few reasons. That Ali AS was for sympatheti
  8. I am not sure that Quran talk about mourning at all but I know that mourning in the day of Ashura started as early as 4 years after the death of the master of the martyrs.
  9. Such ignorant people bring false hadith that says that mourning the dead will bring harm to the dead in afterlife. Such thing are utter falsehood and fabricated hadith by extremists. Prophet (SAVV) himself mourned for the death of Khadija and Abu Talib when they died and when he conquered Mecca. So do not listen to such ignorant men. For furthur reasons read Peshwar Nights.
  10. No problem mate. In the name God 1) Yes mamun can, If Imam's namaz can be considered sahih (permisible). 2) The say answer.
  11. I have no time to write a book online. Please read books on this matter and also read quran and hadith and narations of the 12 Imams, especially Imam Jafar al-Sadig (as).
  12. Ahh!!! Man. Another person saying how great Grand ayatollah Khomeini was. He was a great man and a visionary. He was pious and feared God. That does not make him qualify in running a nation. And It is blasfemy to call him an Imam. We are not Sunni whom call any Alim Imam. Khomeini made mistakes that have lead to the current social problems in Iran. Only blind people cannot see them or just blame them on others and not he own Valli Ahd. Khomeini was a falible man whom thought he was infallible. I respect him greatly and alot of what he says makes perfect sence. But there are also thing that ar
  13. Most of what he says are [Edited Out]. They have no intelectual value. He uses techniques such take a sentence out of the context. Do not pay any atention to these idiots. They thing translation and understand Quran is like Turat and bible. I have answered such people for a long time and I no longer care any more.
  14. Easy Bro, First I have read four different translation of the verse including a translation that was done by two scholars at the same time. and did not seen the section "they will remain in it forever". So whatever tranlation you read is wrong and I advice you to get a better tranlation(http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/quran/098.qmt.html). Now the word "Kafir" has few tranlation. One can say it means a disbliever. Such people use this word as an insult. We can be sure that The glorious quran does not have this intention. But a better tranlation which carry the purpose of the word is "those who reje
  15. Lets go through these one by one. "Your Lord is God who created the heavens and the earth in six days (yaum)" 7:54 the word yaum has few meaning which one of them is a day. But it also has the meaning of a period as well. So now we need to examine the problema little more closely scrutinize in the Quran itself, and more generaly in th language of the time, the possible meaning of the word that many translator continue to traslate into the word "day". quran use the world "Yaum" and its plural "Ayyam" to mean a period of time all the time. for example; "... in a period of time (yaum) whereof the
  16. Not even a single suicide bomber has been an Iranian. Evry Iranian know and have been told by the Grand Ayatollahs that such tactic is evil and Grand Ayatollah Yousef Sanei (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yousef_Sanei) said that these people are the people of the hell fire. In the documentary "Iran: the most dangerous country" another grand ayatollah said that suicide bombers will go to highest level of hell, the place for the worst of all humans. Iranian Ulemma and scholars not only condem such attack but they say these people are going to bottom of hell. Iranian are not badly informed about s
  17. I recomend reading Peshwar Nights for every one. All your questions will be answered.
  18. I am an Iranian myself and I see the Islamic Republic of Iran is very corrupted.not only that they have done "Ifraat" (extremeism). Khomeiny was not the only person whom had influence in the revolution of Iran. But this guy whom talks is an absolute idiot whom have no clue what the historical facts. These people have failed in their religion (Islam), and seek to cast the blame on Islam itself. It is very childish. we called these people extremist nationalists.
  19. bloody matam is disliked by most shia Ulema. I know that it is band in Iran. This decision is based on hurting one's own body is considered wrong and incompatible with Islamic Law. There are some historical facts that such practices began with extrimists.
  20. The interesting thing is that his book is really bad. I have read it and it does not have any literary or intelectual value whatsoever. He lituraly re-wrote the life of The Prophet (SAVV) and add new stuff to it. It is like Da vinci Code. A novel but with little or no historical and intelectual reasoning. Da vinci code is fun to read and is by far a lot better then Satanic Verses. It was bad. really bad. Rushdie's fame was Ayatollah Khumeiny's fault.
  21. Hello brothers, This questionhas come up hundred times and shia ulema have answered it 300 times. If yo want to know, read the following. http://al-islam.org/encyclopedia/ (chapter on Tawassul (Resorting to Intermediary)) And if you want more reasons read Peshwar Nights, http://al-islam.org/peshawar/index.html. I hope reading these give you seeked answer.

  23. Please remember one thing brothers. In shia islam there is no such a thing as "Sahih" like sunni. The only sahih is Quran and quran alone.
  24. You sound confused mate, I first need to address you fifth question. Shahada is a code which reminds you of what doctrins you have accepted. So if you ever accepted the doctrin of "Imamah" you should use the third line that shia say. Secondly those (wether shia or sunni) whom say "this is the right path, u must convert to it..." are extremely uninformed people. "Guide us to the straight path" Quran Chapter 1, Verse 6. Think of religions as roads toward the divine. Every religion is a guide for getting closer to the divine. Islam is the straight path, so it is faster. Now I address your sevent
