      Salaam,

      My brother where have you vanished, I need somebody to converse with during this Glorious month.

      Anyways how are you doing lately, did you get into Law School yet?

      And how is the Islamic education going, I am sure you have now learned how to wrap the amama?

  2. (bismillah) (salam) Very interesting Quranic comment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FYTTCwvc7o Companions of Moses: فَلَمَّا تَرَاءَى الْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ مُوسَىٰ إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ قَالَ كَلَّا ۖ إِنَّ مَعِيَ رَبِّي سَيَهْدِينِ [shakir 26:61] So when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Musa cried out: Most surely we are being overtaken. [shakir 26:62] He said: By no means; surely my Lord is with me: He will show me a way out. But with Abu Bakr, the Companion of the Prophet(pbuh): إِلَّا تَنْصُرُوهُ فَقَدْ نَصَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِذْ أَخْرَجَهُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ثَانِيَ اثْنَيْنِ إِذْ هُمَا فِي الْغَارِ إِذْ يَقُولُ لِصَاحِبِهِ لَا تَحْزَنْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَنَا ۖ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ سَكِينَتَهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَيَّدَهُ بِجُنُودٍ لَمْ تَرَوْهَا وَجَعَلَ كَلِمَةَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا السُّفْلَىٰ ۗ وَكَلِمَةُ اللَّهِ هِيَ الْعُلْيَا ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ [shakir 9:40] If you will not aid him, Allah certainly aided him when those who disbelieved expelled him, he being the second of the two, when they were both in the cave, when he said to his companion: Grieve not, surely Allah is with us. So Allah sent down His tranquillity upon him and strengthened him with hosts which you did not see, and made lowest the word of those who disbelieved; and the word of Allah, that is the highest; and Allah is Mighty, Wise. With the Companions of Moses (pbuh), Moses(pbuh) said, "God is with me." But with Abu Bakr, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, "God is with us." The Prophet(pbuh) could have said "God is with me" like Moses(pbuh) did, but he specifically said "God is with us" and he does not speak from his hawa. Thoughts? w/s
  3. (bismillah) (salam) Unfortunately, you find this a lot with people who do a lot of debating; Sunnis, Shias, Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc This is why we have hadiths that warn us against debating. And Shias deff are no exception. This is why it is important for us to double-check everything. w/s
  4. (bismillah) (salam) Akhi if you know something is clear kufr that the majority of Shias don't believe in then what's the point of trying to prove that they all believe in it or even trying to say that it's in their madhab? How many Shias on this forum have you heard saying that? How many maraj'i do you have have said that? w/s
  5. (bismillah) (salam) Brother, you should get your Islam from the Quran over getting your Islam from movies.... æóÞóæúáöåöãú ÅöäóøÇ ÞóÊóáúäóÇ ÇáúãóÓöíÍó ÚöíÓóì ÇÈúäó ãóÑúíóãó ÑóÓõæáó Çááóøåö æóãóÇ ÞóÊóáõæåõ æóãóÇ ÕóáóÈõæåõ æóáóٰßöäú ÔõÈöøåó áóåõãú ۚ æóÅöäóø ÇáóøÐöíäó ÇÎúÊóáóÝõæÇ Ýöíåö áóÝöí Ôóßòø ãöäúåõ ۚ ãóÇ áóåõãú Èöåö ãöäú Úöáúãò ÅöáóøÇ ÇÊöøÈóÇÚó ÇáÙóøäöø ۚ æóãóÇ ÞóÊóáõæåõ íóÞöíäðÇ [shakir 4:157] And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the messenger of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure. w/s
  6. (bismillah) (salam) Absolutely there are a number of things that can be practically implemented. Yes, most of it is theoretical (perhaps "philosophical" is a more accurate word), but you can use the theoretical elements in a practical manner. For example, we know this popular clip: (Sayyid Nakshawani got this from Adabus Salat) When you contemplate over the things he mentions about water, it has a profound effect on your wudhu and your prayer. Bu he does mention some practical things such as wearing clean clothes to the prayer, taking caring to make sure you're praying in a clean place free of distractions and then he explains the philosophy behind this. And tbh, the best parts of this book aren't from him; they're from the Imams(as) where they explain various parts of the prayer in detail. For example: And actually, al-Khumayni touches on a vitally important aspect in this book (which in itself makes the book worthy buying imo) and that is explaining ways to severely curtail one getting distracted in the prayer, if not completely stopping it. So while there is a big chunk of philosophy in here, the philosophical ideas presented in this book can have a positive effect on your prayer imo, but there is also practical advices and of course ahadith from the Imams(as). w/s
  7. (bismillah) (salam) My dear brothers, there is no need to argue. i asked a simple question. If nobody has an answer at this time then that's fine; i can search harder on my own. i asked a brief question to save myself some time. No need for useless bickering. If this hadith is correct, then the mistake is more on the Companions than the Imam himself imo Just like when the Prophet (pbuh) disclosed a secret to one of his wives and she spread this secret. Allah(swt) criticized her more for releasing this secret than the Prophet (pbuh) for telling her And Allah(swt) knows best. w/s
  8. (bismillah) (salam) This isn't really differences between Sunni and Shia salat :huh: But it's very important for people to place great emphasis on the salat and understand what they're doing. Ayatullah al-Khumayni's "Adabus Salat" is an amaaaaazing book in this regard. You can read it online HERE and you can buy it HERE. i recommend everybody to read that book and apply it to your salat and you will (over time) begin to see what is meant by "The Salat is the Mi'raaj of the Mu'mineen" insha'Allah w/s
  9. (bismillah) (salam) Be wary of these people. They are astray and they lead others astray. You know the ones i speak of; you can see them on this forum (though they are not as prevalent as before alhamdulillah). They are marked by displaying sheer ignorance, an inability to communicate thoughts properly (not to mention having to resort to many explanation marks to emphasize their point on a constant basis), an obsession with self-abuse, a heart consumed in hatred, telling ridiculous stories that have no basis and fool the ignorants, and the practice of shirk on a daily basis. And surely some of the shirk some of them practice is even worse than the mushrikhs of Mecca. And now they lie against the 'ulema to promote their misguidance... innaa lillah wa innaa ilayhi raaji'oon may Allah(swt) protect us amen. w/s
  10. (bismillah) (salam) Thy belief of occultation is something that has existed since early in human history... Every Muslim then and knows knows about the occultation of Nabi 'Isa (pbuh) w/s
  11. (bismillah) (salam) i'd like to see a Shia response to this. w/s
  12. (bismillah) (salam) If you're a slow reader, then i recommend that you read two pages (or 3 or 4, however many you want) of the Quran a day in Arabic then read the translation in Italian, or whichever language you prefer. That way you will become a faster reader and you will understand it better (plus you'll learn so much from the Quran :)) i knew a brother who was also a slow reader. It would take him about 40-50 minutes just to read a few pages of the Quran in Arabic (and he used to make mistakes). But then he decided to try this method alhamdulillah by reading 4 pages a day in Arabic then reading the translation in English. After a couple months, you could see a big difference in his reading. After about a year, he was able to cut down his reading time from about 45min for a few pages to maybe 10 minutes for a few pages. Now (~2 years later), he reads the Quran fluently and he reads it better than most Arabs i know alhamdulillah. w/s
  13. (bismillah) (salam) It's more correct to say "Allah(swt) guided her in the shrine of Imam al-Ridha" than to say that Imam al-Ridha guided her. áóíúÓó Úóáóíúßó åõÏóÇåõãú æóáóٰßöäóø Çááóøåó íóåúÏöí ãóäú íóÔóÇÁõ It is not for you (o Prophet) to guide them, rather [it is] God who guides whom He Wills. (a part of 2:271) But masha'Allah alhamdulillah Allah(swt) has guided her; may He(swt) bring her nearer to Him and cause her to be an example to others amen :) w/s
  14. (bismillah) (salam) Even if you memorize a verse a day, you can memorize Surah al-Baqarah in less than a year :) The key is consistency, reviewing, and taqwa w/s
  15. (bismillah) (salam) This is an excellent video with beautiful advices for memorizing the Quran, presented in a poetic manner: Key points: - Purify your intentions - Don't overwhelm yourself; memorize what you are able to. Some people can memorize 2 pages a day; others have trouble with 2 verses a day. But everyone can slowly build up their retention level with time and by the help of AllahÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì - Set aside a day for rest and review. - Have someone who can quiz you (once a week is good), so they can point out errors that you may be overlooking - If you aren't strong in Arabic grammar, then pay attention to all of the vowels and memorize them exactly as they are. And watch out for verses are are similar and recognize their differences and know when to say which verse here and which verse there - It is recommended to be in wudhu and to make dua before and after your memorization session that Allah(swt) accepts your deeds and makes the memorization easier and that He(swt) allows you to retain these verses and to act upon them - Recite the ayats you learned in your nafilah (recommended) prayers. - Review! Review! Review!! Always go back and recite old verses you learned and make sure you're retaining it correctly, or you will forget. (some of these are my own advices lol) Know that as you memorize, you become a bearer of the Quran, so let your behavior reflect that. Every verse you memorize raises your level, but it is also a proof against you. And use the verses you memorize in your daily life. For example, if a group of people are mocking you for having a beard or hijab or whatever, recall this verses about the Prophet (pbuh) and take comfort in them: æóÅöÐóÇ ÑóÃóæúßó Åöäú íóÊóøÎöÐõæäóßó ÅöáóøÇ åõÒõæðÇ ÃóåóٰÐóÇ ÇáóøÐöí ÈóÚóËó Çááóøåõ ÑóÓõæáðÇ Åöäú ßóÇÏó áóíõÖöáõøäóÇ Úóäú ÂáöåóÊöäóÇ áóæúáóÇ Ãóäú ÕóÈóÑúäóÇ ÚóáóíúåóÇ ۚ æóÓóæúÝó íóÚúáóãõæäó Íöíäó íóÑóæúäó ÇáúÚóÐóÇÈó ãóäú ÃóÖóáõø ÓóÈöíáðÇ [shakir 25:41] And when they see you, they do not take you for aught but a mockery: Is this he whom Allah has raised to be an messenger? [shakir 25:42] He had well-nigh led us astray from our gods had we not adhered to them patiently! And they will know, when they see the punishment, who is straying farther off from the path. Do your best to make the Quran as part of your daily life. May God Almighty faciliate the memorization of the righteous ones who wish to memorize and cause them to act upon their memorization amen w/s EDIT: Also, it's a good idea to listen to the [real, professional] Quranic reciters recite so that you can perfect your recitation. And if you're not strong in Arabic, then make sure you read the translations and know what you're saying (even if it's a general idea and not word-for-word)
  16. Salam bro are you really having your account deleted?

  17. (bismillah) (salam) ^Yes brother, but i am asking for a hadith(s) of the Imams doing something of this nature. w/s
  18. (bismillah) (salam) That's for a young child. You don't circumsize a [Muslim] boy when he grows up. You circumsize him when he is just born. Same thing with this piercing. Plus this piercing doesn't appear to be "piercing" as we know in modern terms (ie by putting on earing). It is piercing by piercing a small hole in the ear of the boy. It says nothing about earings. w/s
  19. (bismillah) (salam) It is the view of Ahl al-Sunnah that al-Mukhtar was a deviant who falsely claimed to be a Prophet. Dhahabi in his al-Mizan: المختار بن أبى عبيد الثققى الكذاب. لا ينبغى أن يروى عنه شئ لانه ضال مضل. كان يزعم أن جبرائيل عليه السلام ينزل عليه. وهو شر من الحجاج أو مثله Mukhtar ibn Abu Ubayd al-Thaqafi, liar. He shouldn't be narrated from, because he's misguided, misleading. He used to claim that Jibril (as) descended upon him. He's worse than al-Hajjaj, or like him. (4/80) And there's an authentic hadith in Sunni books of the Prophet (pbuh) warning of a liar from al-Thaqaf. So having a whole series on him would probably offend some Sunnis. w/s
  20. (bismillah) (salam) i know the hadith that describes the Imams, "He is born, he gets gets ill, he forgets, he makes mistakes, etc etc" (though many say that this is taqiyyah) But i'm curious to see if there are authentic examples of this. i'm curious about this because there are hadiths in Shia books of the Prophet (pbuh), the best of creation, forgetting or making mistakes (with the explanation being that he was made to forget/make a mistake). So i'm curious if such hadiths are reported about the Imams as well. Or if there are no authentic hadiths, then any will do. w/s
  21. (bismillah) (salam) i used to study philosophy quite a bit too back in the day until i realized that you're basically stating the obvious in a wholly unnecessarily complex manner. Plus, just because something is deduced logically and is philosophically sound doesn't mean that it is a reality. It's useless vain talk. w/s
  22. (bismillah) (salam) If the couple is mature/responsible, then they should absolutely get married. There are some 17 y/o's that are more mature/responsible/can handle marriage more than some 25 y/o's w/s
  23. (bismillah) (salam) This is not true at all. The hadiths that are weak are not weak because they prove the Shia point of view; they're weak because they're weak. For example, there's 17 hadiths that quote the Prophet (pbuh) as saying that there will come a people known as "the Rafidhah" who will reject Islam. Now, this would be a clear proof against Shias beyond a shadow of a doubt, plus there are 17 of these hadiths so Sunnis would *of course* grade these as authentic, correct? Actually, no. All of these hadiths are weak, so you don't see knowledgeable Sunnis using these as proofs against the Shia. Shaykh Abd al-Rahman al-Faqih discusses these here: http://www.ahlalhdeeth.com/vb/showthread.php?t=25094 (post #3) (and there's more that could be mentioned about each of these hadiths to weaken them) Heck, EVEN Efendi gave up on this hadith when he realized that it's weak: http://www.ahlalhdeeth.com/vbe/showpost.php?p=26551&postcount=3 So to say that Sunnis grade hadiths depending on whether they prove the Shia point of view or the Sunni point of view simply isn't accurate at all. And there's other examples of some hadiths in praise of Abu Bakr and 'Umar being viewed as weak, yet Shias never bring that up. Heck, even the hadith of the Companions being shining stars is weak to my knowledge. w/s
