  1. Assalaamualeykum, This hadeeth is probably the one which makes 3rd shahadah mustahab to say in adhan and Iqamah, I am quoting hadeeth from brother nader zaveri's blog, you can read his complete article from this link: http://www.revivingalislam.com/2010/06/3rd-testimony-in-adhaan-and-iqaamah.html
  2. Wa aleykumsalaam, It is true, When you are saying Allah is greater than everything you are comparing Allah with everything, hence you are limiting him. how can a person compare Allah if he cannot comprehend in his mind therefore Imam asked us to say "Allah is greater than that he be described". حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل، قال: حدثني محمد بن بحيى العطار، عن سهل بن زياد، عن ابن محبوب، عمن ذكره، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: قال رجل عنده: " الله أكبر " فقال: الله أكبر من أي شئ؟ فقال: من كل شئ. فقال أبوعبدالله عليه السلام: حددته! فقال الرجل: وكيف أقول؟ فقال: الله أكبر من أن يوصف A man was with Imam Ja`far as-Sadiq [a] when someone said "Allahu Akbar" (God is greater). The man said, "Allah is greater than which thing?" The person said: "Everything". Imam as-Sadiq [a] said: "You have limited Him." So the man said: "How then should I say?" So he [a] said: "Allah is greater than that He be described." Source: Kitab al-Tawheed by Shaykh Saduq, Vol 1, Pg 313, H 2.
  3. Wa aleykumsalaam, Even I had this similar question in my mind and I later got convinced with following answer - Allah is all aware no doubt and he has knowledge of your destiny fixed and unfixed both, unfixed I said because, your destiny can be changed otherwise he would never have asked us to make dua. - Secondly Allah says, all good is from my side and all bad deeds you do is from your side, you are solely responsible for doing bad deeds. And he has given you free will and send you to this world, now it is your choice you do good you will be in heaven, you do bad you will be in hell. - Conclusion is, although Allah know what is your ultimate result, he wont be held responsible because you were given free will to choose good or bad and he was not stopping you to do good or bad, it is you who will be held responsible at the end.
  4. Wa aleykumsalaam, I had also plan to run own TV channel, but due to lack of time and the issue I faced, I dropped my plan. In today's generation no one wants to sit in-front of idiot box or watch live streaming of their favorite program, instead they prefer to watch on demand video channel like Netflix and Youtube, this was one of the main reason I dropped my plan. But if any brothers and sisters are willing to start their own TV channel for free, I can recommend a website which I tried myself, it works great. Since it is free, features are limited but it think it is perfect for initial run. Here is the website below, you can add your own videos or youtube videos and you can also schedule the program accordingly within a 24 hrs time frame. https://viloud.tv/pricing/
  5. Wa aleykumsalaam, First of all, Congratulation for accepting Islam as your religion, you are always welcome here in this forum, we have got very knowledgeable brothers and sisters in here, Inshallah you can clear all your doubts and questions. May Allah guide us all and keep us on straight path. Coming back to your questions, As being a Muslim one should never doubt Allah's decision as he is the best of planners, he has knowledge of unseen, since we can never reach his knowledge, we cannot question or judge of what Allah do. We have hadeeth in which similar question is answered by our Imam, a person asked "How Allah can overpower his enemies instead of his friends?" have a look at this hadeeth for the Answer. Now coming to your second question: Yes, He did try to stop people from praying Taraweeh in the month of Ramadan, but instead of obeying they started to protest, after this Imam Ali (عليه السلام) left them at their own selves
  6. Wa aleykumsalaam, Thanks for the clarification, I thought Yusha bin Nun was from aale Harun.
  7. Assalaamualeykum Brother, I hope you are doing well, the above quote you have mentioned is not a hadeeth, rather it is a khabar. It is not what Holy Prophet (sawas) said, it is what Ibn Abbas said. it hold less or no value compared to authentic hadeeth which says wives are not included in ahle kisa when this ayah was revealed.
  8. Wa aleykumsalaam, Hadhrat Yousha bin Noon (عليه السلام) was from aale Haroon (عليه السلام), we have hadeeth explaining why Prophet-hood went to Aale Haroon (عليه السلام) from Aale Musa (عليه السلام)
  9. I have made a Youtube playlist of Sayyed Kamal al-Haydari's English videos which are available on Youtube, currently there are 100 videos in the playlist and will add subsequently if I will able to find more. Some videos may require you to enable caption "CC" button to get the subtitle while many are hard coded. If any brothers and sisters got more of such videos in English, do let me know I will add in the playlist. Youtube Playlist Link: https://rebrand.ly/alhaydari There are Urdu subbed videos also available on his official website, our Urdu speaking brothers and sisters can watch his video from below link Urdu Link: http://alhaydari.com/ur/category/video/
  10. Wa aleykumsalaam, For VIII hadeeth, he said "Like Previously", you have to refer his previous grading of hadeeth I.e hadeeth No. VII. And most probably it will be weak because of Sahl bin Ziyad.
  11. Assalaamuleykum, Yes, it's true. I am quoting you hadeeth from our brother Qaim's Book (The Rise of the Qa'im) We do have hadeeth, which says Imam does meet his special supporters during in his major occultation.
  12. Assalaamualaykum, Alam, Taboot and Horses might not be wrong as we do not worship them, rather we just show our respect to them as it help us to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain(عليه السلام). But I believe, it can be extremely dangerous in long run or for our upcoming generations, this hadeeth led me to believe. And History do repeats 1 أبي (رحمه الله) قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى قال حدثني محمد بن خالد البرقي قال حدثني حماد بن عيسى عن حريز بن عبد الله السجستاني عن جعفر بن محمد (ع) في قول الله عز وجل و قالوا لا تذرن آلهتكم و لا تذرن ودا و لا سوطا و لا يغوث و يعوق و نسرا قال كانوا يعبدون الله عز و جلمات فقاوا فضج قومهم و شق ذلك عليهم ف أهلهم إبليس لعنه الله فقال لهم أتخذ لكم أصناما على صورهم فتنظرون إليهم و تأنسون بهم و تعبدون الله فأعد لهم أصناما على سبيل المثال فكانوا يعبدون الله عز وجل و ينظرون إلى تلك الأصنام فلما جاء الشتاء و الأمطار أدخلوا الأصنام البيوت فلم يزالوا يعبدون الله عز و جل حتى هلك ذلك القرن و نشأ أولادهم فقالوا إن آباءنا كانوا يعبدون هاو تو ذي سومر أوف ذي غودس أوف ذي غودس أوف ذي غود، My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Ibn Isa, from Muhammad Bin Khalid Al barqy, from Hamaad Bin Isa, from Hareyz Ibn Abdullah Al Sajastany, (It has been narrated) from Ja’far Bin Muhammad (عليه السلام) regarding the Words of Allah Mighty and Majestic [71:23] And they have said (to each other), 'Abandon not your gods: Abandon neither Wadd nor Suwa', neither Yaguth nor Ya'uq, nor Nasr. The Imam said: ‘They (the mentioned) used to be worshiping Allah Mighty and Majestic. They died. It was grievous upon their people, so Iblees came to them and said to them, ‘Take idols for yourselves upon their images, so that you can look towards them, and be cordial with them and you can (still) be worshiping Allah’. So he prepared idols for them upon their resemblances. So they used to be worshiping Allah Mighty and Majestic, and were looking towards those idols. So when the winter came upon them, and the rains, they entered the idols into their houses. So they did not stop worshiping Allah Mighty and Majestic until that generation died off, and their children grew up. So they (new generation) said, ‘Our fathers used to worship these, therefore worship them besides Allah Mighty and Majestic’. So these are the Words of Allah Blessed and High [71:23] Abandon neither Wadd nor Suwa – the Verse’. Source: Ilail as-Sharai by Shaykh Sadooq, Vol 1, Pg 3, Ch 3, H 1.

  13. Wa aleykumsalaam, Such actions can be found in our narrations, read the following hadeeths. حدثني محمد بن الحسن قال حدثني محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن أحمد ابن أبي عبد الله البرقي قال حدثنا أبي عن محمد بن أبي عمير عن مرازم قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام قال إن رجلا أتى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فقال يا رسول الله اني جعلت ثلث صلاتي لك فقال له خيرا فقال يا رسول الله اني جعلت نصف صلاتي لك فقال ذلك أفضل قال قد جعلت كل صلاتي لك قال إذا يكفيك الله ما أهمك من أمر دنياك وآخرتك فقال له رجل أصلحك الله كيف يجعل صلاته له؟ قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام لا يسأل الله شيئا إلا بدأ بالصلاة على محمد وآل محمد. Narrated to us Muhammad bin Hassan who said, narrated to us Mohammed bin Hassan Al-Saffar from Ahmad ibn Abi Abdullah Al-Barqi who said, narrated to us my father from Muhammad bin Abi Umair from Marazim who said: Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام) said "A person came to the Messenger of Allah ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) and said, “I have dedicated my one-third prayer for you.” The Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) said, “Goodness be for you.” The man said, “I have dedicated half of my prayer for you.” He replied, “You did a really good thing.” The man told him, “I have dedicated my whole prayer for you.” He replied, “Allah will fulfill all your desires of this world and the hereafter.” At that time, a person asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq ((عليه السلام).), “May Allah do good to you, how can a person dedicate his supplication to the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.)?” Imam Ja’far Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said, “Send salutation of Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).s.) and his progeny before asking for anything from Allah.” And in al-Kafi Shaykh Kulayni has narrated from Ali ibn Ibrahim who has narrated from his father from ibn Abu ‘Umayr from Murazim likewise.

Grading: Shaykh Ahmed al-Mahuzi said hadeeth has "Saheeh Sanad" (Authentic Chain) in his Thawāb al-aʿmāl, Vol 1, Pg 432. Allamah Majlisi said hadeeth is "Hasan kal-Saheeh" (Good like Authentic) in Mirat ul Uqool Vol 12, Pg 99. 4 ـ عدة من أصحابنا ، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد ، عن يحيى بن إبراهيم بن أبي البلاد ، عن أبيه ، عن علي بن المغيرة ، عن أبي الحسن عليه‌السلام قال قلت له إن أبي سأل جدك عن ختم القرآن في كل ليلة فقال له جدك كل ليلة فقال له في شهر رمضان فقال له جدك في شهر رمضان فقال له أبي نعم ما استطعت فكان أبي يختمه أربعين ختمة في شهر رمضان ثم ختمته بعد أبي فربما زدت وربما نقصت على قدر فراغي وشغلي ونشاطي وكسلي فإذا كان في يوم الفطر جعلت لرسول الله صلى‌الله‌عليه‌وآله ختمة ولعلي عليه‌السلام أخرى ولفاطمة عليها‌السلام أخرى ثم للأئمة عليهم‌السلام حتى انتهيت إليك فصيرت لك واحدة منذ صرت في هذا الحال فأي شيء لي بذلك قال لك بذلك أن تكون معهم يوم القيامة قلت الله أكبر فلي بذلك قال نعم ثلاث مرات. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from Yahya ibn Ibrahim ibn Abu al-Balad from his father from Ali ibn (Abi) al- Mughirah who has said the following: “Once I asked Abu al-Hassan (عليه السلام), ‘My father once asked your grandfather about reading all of the Holy Qur'an in one night.’ ‘(Do you mean it to happen) every night?’ Your grandfather inquired. ‘Yes, in the month of Ramadan.’ My father replied. Your grandfather asked him, ‘In the month of Ramadan?’ My father said, ‘Yes, in the month of Ramadan if I could.’ My father would read the Holy Qur'an forty times in the whole month of Ramadan. After my father I would read the Holy Qur'an sometimes more and sometimes less than he did, as I would get a chance within my work, activities and laziness. On 'id day (after the month of Ramadan) I would assign the reward for reading the Holy Qur'an once for the Holy Prophet, one for Imam Ali, one for Al-Sayyidah Fatimah and one for each Imam until yourself and I assigned the reward for reciting the Holy Qur'an once for you from the time I am doing this. Will there be anything for me in this? The Imam said, ‘On the Day of Judgment, you will be with them.’ ‘Allah is greater than can be described, this much for me!’ I exclaimed. The Imam, recipient of divine supreme covenant, said three times, ‘Yes.’” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kuylani, Vol 2, Pg 618, H 4. Wasā'il al-Shīʿa by Shaykh al-Hur al-Aamili, Vol 6, Pg 218, H 1.

From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Yunus Bin Yaqoub, from Abdul A’ala who said: ‘I ate with Abu Abdullah (عليه السلام), so he called (for the meal to be served), and they brought the stuffed chicken and Khabis (a sweet made of bread and dates). So Abu Abdullah said: ‘This, I dedicated (gifted) to Syeda Fatima’. Then he said: ‘O maid! Bring us (also) our well-known (regular) food’. So she came with porridge, vinegar and oil’.

A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Rayyan in a marfu‘ manner who has said the following: “I once asked Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘Why did the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, like shoulder meat more than meat from other parts of a sheep? He (the Imam) said, ‘It is because Adam offered a sacrifice for Prophets of his offspring and he for everyone named a part. The shoulder was assigned to the Messenger of Allah. For this reason he liked it, desired and preferred over the other parts.’” Source: Wasā'il al-Shīʿa by Shaykh al-Hur al-Aamili, Vol 17, Pg 40, H 3.
  14. Assalaamualeykum, Here is one of the reason why men have beard according to Imams, quoting excerpts from long hadeeth: Abul Abbas Muhammad ibn Ibrahim ibn Ishaq al-Taleqani - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abu Sa’id al-Hassan ibn Ali al- Ado’we quoted Ebad ibn Saheeb, on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather, on the authority of Al-Rabi’a - the companion of al-Mansoor, from Ja’far Ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (as): "..The Imam (MGB) asked (to an Indian doctor), ‘Why do men have beards?’ He said, ‘I do not know.’ Imam replied, 'Men have beards so that they may be distinguished from women'..."
