  1. بسم الله This is an unknown text. It is likely a very late text and what you quoted above doesn't even look like a Hadith but just something the author of this mysterious book wrote. في أمان الله
  2. السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته If anyone is interested, below I am linking to Sayed Aḥmad Madadī's website - a history, jurist, over-all big scholar in Qum from among Sayed Sistani's students حفظهما الله - regarding a question students sent to him about his view of Muḥammad b. Sinān http://www.ostadmadadi.ir/arabic/article/8748/
  3. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم al-Zuhrī is not the lone individual of suspect from the Tabi`īn, such as al-Sha`bī. Shareef Murtaḍā رضي الله عنه mentions al-Sha`bī in a discussion about the riwāyah thrown around attributing tafḍīl of Shaykhayn to Amīr al-Mu'minīn عليه السلام: عن الشعبي ورأيه في الانحراف عن أهل البيت عليهم السلام معروف from al-Sha`bī, and his belief of one moving away from Ahl al-Bayt عليهم السلام is well known One of the issues in their whole rijālī enterprise is they weren't really suspicious of `uthmāniyyah like they were of tashayyu` في أمان الله
  4. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Are these same people going to also declare the invalidity of his rule and that of his son and those who followed after him? Also, are they going to revisit their epistemological pillar of `adālat al-ṣahābah or aṣālat `adālat al-ṣahābah? في أمان الله
  5. I am in no way saying you have to do these types of things if you are uncomfortable with them, but I do encourage you to sit down, reevaluate, and deconstruct why you feel that way. I pray for guidance from Allah عزوجل. في أمان الله
  6. The phrase "Labbayk" is used to mean "I am here to serve" or "I am here for your cause." When a Muslim says "Labbayk Ya Rasulallah" صلى الله عليه وآله it is an affirmation of their wilayah over you and your submission to that wilayah, expressing your walayah. The same is true if one chooses to address another waliy of Allah عزوجل. These things were strange and uncomfortable for many of us in the beginning, but after discarding our baggage from previous beliefs and world views, we have come to realize that it is all in harmony with the principles of Wilayah, whether that means one has tak
  7. These are interesting videos to watch, insha'Allah. السلام على من اتبع الهداة
  8. Salām dear brother. I pray for your guidance to the fortress of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. The most important thing to believe is that the Ahl al-Bayt عليهم السلام, including the Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله, Fatimah al-Zahra عليها السلام, and the 12 Imams from Ameer al-Mu'mineen to the Awaited Qa'im al-Mahdi عليهم أفضل الصلاة والسلام, are the authorities of Allah عزوجل upon His creation and their obedience and following is obligatory. The right of Ahl al-Bayt عليهم السلام upon us is our complete loyalty and obedience to them. I will try and answer your questions to the best of my knowledge, in
  9. Last year they did it for 3 weeks and it became too long for the participants and few people were able to attend as taking off 3 weeks from home responsibilities and work is too difficult. Please spread the word for this program in your own communities and social media.

  11. بسم الله No, I shan't translate. No, I shan't summarize. kthxbai
  12. بسم الله Sort of. Although, I do not believe it is proper to call seeking the help or intercession of a person as making 'du`a.' It's more like just talking to them as humans, even if they have passed away. We would not call going to your neighbor and asking him to help you with something as "du`a" in this sense. Similarly, seeking the aid of one of the Elect Servants of God عليهم السلام is not considered supplicating to them. Just as your doctor is a means placed by God for help and he is limited by the capacity given to him by God, the Elect of God will pray on your behalf, etc. in the
  13. بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم So I think you are confusing two terms that Muslims use and their translation. The ritual prayer - ṣalāh صلاة - is usually just referred to as "prayer;" this is the 5 times a day ritual Muslims perform daily with standing, bowing, prostrating, etc. The other term is "du`ā' دعاء" which is sometimes called prayer and sometimes supplication. Many muslims will just use the Arabic term itself always when referring to asking God for help, praising him, etc. So Sunnis will claim the way we pray صلاة is wrong because they'll say the narrations tell us to prayer this ot
  14. بسم الله In Shi'ism, it is highly encouraged to mourn and remember the tragedies of the Prophet and his Family عليهم السلام, especially the tragedy of Karbala' and Imam Husayn عليه السلام. Some cultures express their grief with certain practices others consider to be extreme or harmful in some way. Some scholars do not support those practices. It is not necessary, in any case, to engage in those practices such a self flagellation. Rather, the believer should cry, remember, and reflect.
  15. بسم الرحمن الرحيم Welcome to the forum, I pray God guides you to the truth. Amen. This is actually a branch of a much larger issue. Yes, empirically and very superficially, the Shi`ah believe the rightful success to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله is his cousin and son-in-law, `Ali b. Abi Talib عليه السلام and the Sunnis believe it was Ibn Abi Quhafa, more commonly known today as Abu Bakr. The issue is deeper than that. Behind that is the question: Did the Prophet leave a instructions on leadership? Was it his duty to leave one? Was there any indications of appoi
