  1. Can someone help me to translate this Poem. It's a famous poem by one of the Imam's companions Da'bal al-Khuza'ii قصيدة للشاعر أهل البيت ((دعبل الخزاعي )) أفــاطــم لـو خـلـت الـحـسـيـن مـجـدلاً وقـد مـات عـطـشـان فـي شـط فـراتِ ***** إذا لـلـطـمـت الـخـد فـاطـم عـنـده واجـريـت دمـع الـعـيـن فـي الـوجـنـاتِ ***** أفـاطـم قـومـي يـا ابـنـة الـخـيـر وانـدبـي نـجـوم سـمـاوات بـأرض فـلاتِ ***** قـبـور (بـكـوفـان) وأخـرى بـطـبـيـة وأخـرى (بـفـخ) نـالـهـا صـلـواتِ ***** قـبـور بـبـطـن الـنـهـر مـن جـنـب (كـربـلاء) مـعـرسـهـم فـيـهـا بـشـط فـراتِ ***** تـوفـوا عـطـاشـى بـالـعـرى فـلـيـتـنـي تـوفـيـت فـيـهـم قـبـل حـيـن وفـاةِ ***** إلى الـلـه اشـكـو لـوعـة عـنـد ذكـرهـم سـقـتـنـي بـكـأس الـثـكل والـصـعـقـاتِ ***** إذا فـخـروا يـومـاً أتـو بـمـحـمـد وجـبـريـل والـقـران والـسـوراتِ ***** وعـدوا عـلـيـاً ذا الـمـنـاقـب والـعـلـى وفـاطـمـة الـزهـراء خـيـر بـنـاتِ ***** وحـمـزة والـعـبـاس ذا الـديـن والـتـقـى وجـعـفـرهـا الـطـيـار في الـحـجـبـاتِ ***** أولـئـك مـشـؤمـون هـنـدا وحـرهـا سـمـيـة مـن نـوكـى ومـن قــدراتِ ***** هـم مـنـعـوا الأبـاء مـن أخـذ حـقـهـم وهـم تـركـوا الأبـنـاء رهـن شـتـاتِ ***** سـأبـكـهـيـم مـا حـج الـلـه راكـب ومـا نـاح قـمـرى عـلـى الـشـجـراتِ ***** فـيـا عـيـن أبـكـيـهـم وجـودى بـعـيـرة فـقـد آن لـلـتـسـكـاب والـهـمـلاتِ ***** بـنـات زيـاد فـي الـقـصـور مـصـونـة وآل رسـول الـلـه مـنـهـتـكـاتِ ***** وآل زيـاد لافـي الـحـصـون مـنـيـعـة وآل رسـول الـلـه فـي الـفـلـواتِ ***** ديـار رسـول الـلـه أصـبـحـن بـلـقـعـا وآل زيـاد تـسـكـن الـحـجـراتِ ***** وآل رسـول الـلـه نـحـف جـسـومـهـم وآل زيـاد غـلـظ الـقـصـراتِ ***** وآل رسـول الـلـه تـدمـي نـحـورهـم وآل زيـاد ربـة الـحـجـلاتِ ***** وآل رسـول الـلـه تـسـبـى حـريـمـهـم وآل زيـاد آمـنـوا الـسـربـاتِ ***** إذا وتـرامـدوا إلى واثـرهـم أكـفـا عـن الأوتـار مـنـقـبـضـاتِ ***** سـأبـكـيـهـم مـا در فـي الأرض شـارق ونـادى مـنـادى الـخـيـر لـلـصـلـواتِ ***** ومـا طـلـعـت شـمـس وحـان غـروبـهـا وبـالـلـيـل أبـكـيـهـم وبـالـغـدواتِ ***** عظم الله اجوركم بمصاب ابا عبدالله الحسين عليه السلام رزقنا الله في الدنيا زياتهم وفي الأخيرة شفاعتهم
  2. Hezbollah is a political organization with a Shia Islam faceplate bolted on. Politics aside they have nothing to do with religion.
  3. don't be silly. He was clearly resisting arrest. The man got what he deserved. He was going to get cuffed anyway so he should have just made it easy on himself and cooperated with the police.
  4. That's like intentionally going near a burning building and unintentionally getting burnt. What did you expect to happen? Your fast is void if you completely dipped your head in the water while swimming. So it doesn't matter if you swallowed the water or not. I think you should make it up as a precaution but that's just my opinion.
  5. To suggest that plant based whole food sources of carbohydrates like potatoes contribute to heart disease is irresponsible. High blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol are also risk factors of heart disease and diabetes and I've never heard of anyone who got fat or became diabetic or got heart disease from eating fruit, Potatoes, corn, grains (rice, barley). Do you know anybody who got fat or sick from eating too much potatoes / rice / fruit? I know a lot of diabetics and I can tell you that all of them consume a high fat/meat and low fiber, carbohydrate diet. They got fat and ended up with Diabetes from the excessive refined sugars, fats, and meats not the rice and fruit and Potatoes. During the turn of the 18 and 19th century most of Europe survived on a diet of potatoes only. Not because they chose to but because they didn't have anything else to eat. how many of those people do you think got heart disease from their potato diet. in 1928 there was an experiment conducted on 2 adults male and female where they placed them on an all potato diet for a year. At the end of the study they made 2 conclusions 1. They never got tired of the potato diet. 2. The subjects met all of their nutritional requirements and were completely healthy. More on potatoes and the study here http://www.nealhendr...sarepillars.htm Most Asians live on a high Carb rice diet and they are all lean, trim and healthy and the rate of heart disease and diabetes is extremely low in those societies when compared to north america and Europe. To suggest that these people are at risk of heart disease because of their high carb diet is unfounded. The same can be said about Kenyans with their high carb Ugali diet. A diet high in fish is bad for your bones and causes Osteoporosis (bone loss). The people who consumed the most fish (Eskimos) also had the highest rate of Osteoporosis in the world. The reason for this is that meat in general is acid forming and the body needs to maintain a slightly alkaline PH. When you eat a lot of acid forming foods your body compensates by buffering the acids with calcium released from your bones and teeth. There's a correlation between meat/dairy consumption and osteoporosis where the countries that consume the highest amount of meat/dairy also have the highest rate of osteoporosis. additionally, the American Heart Association condemns high protein and fat diets because " they restrict healthful foods that provide essential nutrients and do not provide the variety of foods needed to adequately meet nutritional needs. Individuals who follow these diets are therefore at risk for compromised vitamin and mineral intake, as well as potential cardiac, renal, bone, and liver abnormalities overall." http://www.ncbi.nlm....9?dopt=Abstract When you look at it in the long term. Most if not all of the high protein / high fat advocates are overweight themselves Dr. John Briffa is no exception. Look at him below. The guy has a double chin and belly he himself is at risk for high blood pressure and diabetes. Judging from that photo he's probably in the 27%+ body fat range. Also, notice the fat people behind him there to hear good things about their bad habits. Additionally, a high carb diet was the favorite food for over 70 thousands prophets. Clearly 70K prophets can't be wrong. Masur (a kind of beans, Lentils) was the favorite food for seventy thousand Prophets. It moderates the temperament and augments the activity of tear glands. Imam Ali Raza (as) If you your goal is to build Muscle. the reccomendation is to eat at least 50% Carbs, 25% protein, 25% fats. if you're into endurance sports then your carb requirement goes up even higher to upwards of 80% carbs. another benefit of a high carb diet is that you will have enough energy to sustain your activity level without resorting to supplements. Whey protien, pre-workout / post workout, and caffene stimulants are for people who are carb starved and glycogen exhausted.
  6. As long as you stay way from the refined sugars and stick to clean starch like potatoes, rice, barley, etc.. you can eat it ad libidum. Most chinese, japanese, koreans are slim and trim, their diet consists of lots of high carb rice. Kenyan runners are some of the best runners in the world and yet their diet consists mostly of high carb Ugali. In fact most Kenyan's are not runners, they eat mostly Ugali and are all slim and trim. Roman Gladiators, among the strongest men in history are commonly known as Barley men because their diet consisted of mostly Barley. Aztec warriors before going into battle would load up on Quinoa. Even Imam Ali's (as) diet consisted of carbs in the form of dates, dried bread, and lentils Historically entire civilizations thrived on a high carb diet. The europeans thrived on Barley and Wheat. South americans on corn and potatoes. Asians on rice. So if you want to perform athletically carb up. If you want to stay slim and trim carb up. If you want to get strong carb up. If you want to eat like Amir-ul Mu'mineen (as), carb up. Stick to carbs in the form of whole foods, Brown Rice, Potatoes, Lentils, Quinoa, Oats, sweet fruit and fresh vegitables as a primary source of nutrition. And stay away from oils and fats because "The Fat you eat is the Fat you wear"
  7. so far I made 2 dishes that are outside of the normal high fat and oily ramadan tradition. 1. vegetable & potato curry over a bed of brown rice (45 minutes prep time) 2. sweet & sour spicy vegetable & tofu stir-fry with soba noodles (15 minutes prep time) in both cases I had lots of sweet fruit for dessert.
  8. I don't entirely agree with that. Hormones play a major role in burning fat. In a fasted state your body metabolism is growth hormone dominated as opposed to insulin dominated while in a fed state. Growth hormone is increased by fasting and keeps your metabolism elevated and reduces the need to use glucose as a fuel source. It keeps your blood glucose level stable and prevents you from losing muscle mass while you fast. Not only that but it also upregulates key enzymes that help move fats into the muscle to be burned as fuel. eating prevents release of growth hormone while fasting promotes release of growth hormone. eating prevents release and use of body fat as fuel while fasting promotes release and use of body fat as fuel.
  9. You're supposed to work out before Iftar. Never work out on a full stomach as your body has better things to do than to digest food during a work out. If you have no energy before iftar that means you're not eating the right foods and carb starving yourself. Normally If I'm going to work out tomorrow then i'll carb load at iftar time. That means a lot of bananas, dates, potatoes, and rice. High carb, low fat, low protein. The carbs convert into glycogen and are stored in your muscles. The body can store up to 500 grams of carbs without converting to fat. that means you can eat up to 2000 calories of carbs and not have to worry about gaining weight and you will have tons of energy to burn in your workout the next day. Also make sure to drink a lot of water and be hydrated. A good marker for hydration is that you're pissing clear at least 2-3 times. If your urine is yellow or straw then you're dehydrated so make sure to get lots of water. I normally have 8-9 cups of water at night after Iftar. Finally make sure to get your rest. Take 45 minute naps in the afternoon if you have to. I normally nap before a work out. my typical workout day during Ramadan looks like this. carb up and hydrate the night before. Go to sleep. wake up in the morning and go about my daily activities. Nap in the early afternoon then go to the Gym for a 1 hour work out. Keep it below 60 minutes to avoid over training. I come home and go about the rest of my day until iftar time and repeat the cycle all over again. sometimes I have 3-4 hours to go after my workout before Iftar. I'm losing a lot of body fat with this method. So far i'm averaging between 1-2 Lbs a week. I started off in March at 26% body fat. I'm now at 16% and my goal is to get down to 7%.
  10. Pop goes the weasel. http://cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/us/2011/09/30/sot-obama-al-awlaki.cnn.html
  11. In many Shia traditions Omar is refereed to as the "Son of Suhak" Imam Ali (as) and some of the other imams refereed to him with that title. Shaikh Mufid himself also refereed to Omar as the son of Suhak. I would argue that it is credible because this title for Omar is found all over our traditions.
  12. thanks for the correction. I should also mention that Muhammad bin Sa'ib is not reliable in matters of sharia but he is considered reliable and an authority on geology.
  13. I don't have the hadith on me at the moment but it was narrated that one of the imams threw a stone in one direction and then threw 2 stones in another direction. The Imam's companion asked what he was doing. The imam replied that he threw 1 stone at Abu Bakr, and 2 stones at Omar. I also read that the #1 enemy of Muslims are Omar, Abu Bakr, then Satan. In that exact order.
  14. Muhammad ibn Sa'ad al-kalbi is a respected Sunni biographer who was considered one of the foremost knowledgeable persons in the field of genealogy. In his book al-salaba fi ma'rifat al-sahaba he wrote the following about Omar's ancestry. It's also important to note that a similar story is narrated in the shia book Mustadrakat Ilm rijal al-hadith by Ali namazi shahroodi. keeping in mind that both narrations from the different sects are consistent with one another and the respect given to Muhammad ibn Sa'ad al-kalbi by Sunni historians, both of which lend a high degree of credibility to the narration. A slave boy named Nafil belonged to Kalbi bin lu'i bin ghalib al-quraishi, when al-quraishi passed away, Abdul-muttalib took guardianship of the slave boy Nafil. Abdul Muttalib also had a young lady name Suhak take care of his sheep, he liked her and desired to cherish her for himself. So Abdul muttalib made her wear a leather chastity device with a lock and kept the key to himself. The slave boy Nafil fancied and adored Suhak as he used to see her in the grazing field and one day, they made an arrangement to meet in privacy while Abdul Muttalib was away. Suhak told him I have no way of fulfilling what you want because of this chastity device which only Abdul-Muttalib has a key to. Nafil told her not to worry as he can get it off, so he grabed some butter and grease and began to work it through the leather device and her skin until the device slid to her thighs. Suhak and Nafil coupled that night and Suhak was pregnant with a boy whom she named khattab. She had the boy and left it around one of the nearby garbage dumps at night out of fear of Abdul Muttalib. The boy was picked up by an old jewish lady and was raised by her. Khattab grew to be a young man. As he was out cutting wood, Suhak would check up on him while hiding but one day khattab saw her revealing her bottom amorously. Not knowing who she was he coupled with her. Suhak was pregnant with a girl named Hantama. Suhak had the girl and left her in the garbage dumps near Makkah. The girl was picked up by Hisham ibn Mughira, she became a slave girl for him. One day Khattab saw her and asked her hand in marriage from Hisham. Hisham married Hantama to Khattab and they had a boy named Omar. Just to recap ------------- - Suhak + Nafil = Khattab - Suhak + Khattab = Hantama - khattab + Hantama = Omar Suhak Omar's grandmother from both parents. Hantama and Khattab are siblings as well as Umar's Parents and well as his aunt and uncle [Edited]. this is not meant as an insult, it's simply the fact. Sunni Source: al-salaba fi ma'rifat al-sahaba by Muhammad ibn sa'ib al-klbi, [Vol.3 page 212] Shia source: Mustadrakat Ilm rijal al-hadith by Ali namazi shahroodi, [Vol.8 page 585] Here is the sunni source in arabic: -------------------------------- روى محمد بن السائب الكلبي- الصلابة في معرفة الصحابة - الجزء ( 3 ) - رقم الصفحة : ( 212 ) كان نفيل لكلب بن لؤي بن غالب القرشي فمات عنه ثم وليه عبد المطلب , وكانت صهاك ترعى غنمه وكان يفرق بينهما في المرعى فاتفق يوماً اجتماعهما في مراح واحد فهواها وعشقها نفيل , وكان قد ألبسها عبد المطلب سروالاً من الأديم وجعل عليه قفلاً وجعل مفتاحه معه لمنزلتها منه , فلما راودها قالت : مالي إلى ما تقول سبيل وقد ألبست هذا الأديم ووضع عليه قفل فقال : أنا أحتال عليه , فأخذ سمناً من مخيض الغنم ودهن به الأديم وما حوله من بدنها حتى استله إلى فخذيها وواقعها فحملت منه بالخطاب , فلما ولدته ألقته على بعض المزابل بالليل خيفة من عبد المطلب فالتقطت الخطاب امرأة يهودية جنازة وربته , فلما كبر كان يقطع الحطب فسمي الحطاب لذلك بالحاء فصحف بالمعجمة , وكانت صهاك ترتاده في الخفية فرآها ذات يوم وقد تطأطأت عجيزتها , ولم يدر من هي فوقع عليها فحملت منه بحنتمة , فلما وضعتها ألقتها على مزابل مكة خارجها فالتقطها هشام بن مغيرة بن وليد ورباها فنسبت أليه , فلما كبرت وكان الخطاب يتردد على هشام فرأى حنتمة فأعجبته فخطبها إلى هشام فزوجه إياها فولدت عمر ، وكان الخطاب والد عمر لأنه أولد حنتمة إياه حيث تزوجها وحده . لأنه سافح صهاك قبل فأولدها حنتمة والخطاب من أم واحدة وهي صهاك
