  1. Wa aleykumsalaam, I believe calling some living person in this world for help (Istighatha) is not a problem, while I doubt about the person who is dead or even martyred can come and help you physically, as I have not yet come across any hadeeth regarding this. We have reliable hadeeth where our Imam asked us to take help from a Jinn when you get lost in travelling. 10- حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد اليقطيني عن القاسم بن يحيى عن جده الحسن بن راشد عن أبي بصير و محمد بن مسلم عن أبي عبد الله ع قال حدثني أبي عن جدي عن آبائه ع أَنَّ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع في حديث الأربعمأة قال: ومن ضل منكم في سفر أو خاف على نفسه ، جنيا صالح صالحا يسيح في البلاد لمكانكم محتسبا نفسه لكم ، وسمع الصوت أجابرش الضال منكم وحبس دابته. My father(ra)- narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Muhammad ibn Isa ibn Ubayd al-Yaqtayni, on the authority of Al-Qasim ibn Yahya, on the authority of his grandfather Al-Hassan ibn Rashid, on the authority of Abi Basir and Muhammad ibn Muslim, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (عليه السلام), on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather, on the authority of his forefathers that in an assembly the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (عليه السلام) taught his companions four-hundred things each of which is very useful for a Muslim’s life and religion. What he taught is as follows Whenever you get lost and frightened while you are traveling, you should say, ‘Ya Salih Aqsani’, since one of your genie brothers called Salih is always moving around and would help you find your way and would stop a fleeing quadruped upon hearing your call. Source: Al-Khisal by Shaykh Saduq, Vol 2, Pg 60, H 10. Grading: Shyakh Asif Muhsini consider this hadeeth as "Mu'tabar" (Reliable) in his Mu'jam al-Ahadith al-Mu'tabara, Vol 7, Pg 43. About Omnipresent, then No. We do have authentic hadeeth where it says, all our deeds are presented before RasulAllah (sawas) and when he finds it, he becomes sad, so this proves he is not omnipresent. And Yes, Iblees and Angels are also not omnipresent. It is Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) alone who is omnipresent. 3 - علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن سماعة، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول: مالكم تسوؤن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟! فقال رجل: كيف نسوؤه؟ فقال: أما تعلمون أن أعمالكم تعرض عليه، فإذا رأى فيها معصية ساءه ذلك، فلا تسوؤا رسول الله وسروه. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Uthman ibn 'Isa from Suma‘ who has said that he heard abu ‘Abd Allah (عليه السلام), say the following: “What is wrong with you? Why do you disappoint the Messenger of Allah?” A man asked, ‘How do we disappoint him?’ The Imam said, ‘Do you not know that your deeds are presented before him? When he finds sins in them it disappoints him. Do not disappoint the Messenger of Allah. Do things that will make him happy.’” Source: Al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni,Vol 1, Pg 219, H 3. Grading: Allamah Majlisi said hadeeth is “Hasan Muwaththaq” in Mirat ul Uqool, Vol 3, Pg 5. 2 - عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن عبد الحميد الطائي، عن يعقوب بن شعيب قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن قول الله عز وجل: " اعملوا فسيرى الله عملكم ورسوله والمؤمنون " قال: هم الأئمة. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Nadr ibn Suwayd from Yahya al-Halabi from ‘Abd al-Hamid al-Ta’i from Ya‘qub ibn Shu‘ayb who has said the following: “Once I asked abu ‘Abd Allah(عليه السلام), about the meaning of the words of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, ‘Act as you wish. Allah will see your deeds and so will His Messenger and the believers. . . .’ (9:106) The Imam said, ‘They (believers) are ‘A’immah(عليه السلام).’” Source: Al-Kafi by Kulayni,Vol 1,Pg 219,H 2 Grading: Sheikh Hadi al-Najafi also says hadeeth is “Saheeh” in Mausu'ah Ahadith Ahlulbayt, Vol 7, Pg 137. I believe, the right way and Imams' way of doing Tawassul is saying "Ya Allah be Haqqe Muhammed wa aale Muhammed...." which can be found in our authentic ahadeeth and Duas. Even if we consider saying "Ya Ali Madad" or any Istighatha as a legal form of Dua, I still prefer the way of our RasulAllah and Imams, because their way of worship is always better. Wa aleykumsalaam.
  2. Assalamualeykum, The word permanently is not there in arabic text, rest I do not find anything wrong in content. And as per sanad hadeeth is Weak due to Majhool (Unknown) narrator. حصين بن عبد الله is Unknown and in Mahasin by Shakyh al-Barqi it is الخضر بن عبد الله who is narrating from Imam Jafar al-Sadiq(عليه السلام) and he is also Majhool (Unknown)
  3. Assalamualyekum, Marriage is a Sunnah and not obligatory, but here is an adivce from our Imam to a lady who did not wish to marry. 3 - عدة من أصحابنا ، عن أحمد بن بشير قال: دخلت امرأة على أبي عبد الله فقالت: أصلح الله إني امرأة امرأة فقال: وما التبتل عندك؟ قالت: لا أتزوج ، قال: ولم؟ قالت: ألتم بذلك ، فقال: انصرفي فلو كان ذلك فضلا لكانت فاطمة (عليها السلام) أحق به منك إنه ليس أحد يسبقها إلى الفضل. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from ‘Abd al-Samad ibn Bashir who has said the following: “Once, a woman came to abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and said, ‘I pray to Allah to keep you well, I am a celibate woman.’ He (the Imam) asked, ‘What does that mean to you?’ She replied, ‘I do not marry.’ He (the Imam) asked, ‘Why do you not marry?’ She replied, ‘I seek thereby excellence.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘You must change your mind. Had that been anything of excellence, Fatimah, ‘Alayha al-Salam, would have been more deserving of it than you because no one could succeed against her to excel.’” Source: Al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 5, Pg 509, H 3. Grading: Allamah Majlisi has graded this hadeeth as "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Mirat ul Uqool 20/322. Sheikh Behbhudi has also graded this hadeeth as "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Saheeh al-Kafi 3/71.
  4. Wa aleykumsalaam, Brother can you try my website on your android box. I am aware of screen orientation problem, Inshallah will fix that in future update. meanwhile you can use my website www.shialivetv.com on your box tv for watching. Yes, I can create a m3u playlist url, but it won't have all the channels I have listed on my app, because some channel work on embedded link that have encrypted url and cannot run on iptv player. Inshallah I'll make m3u playlist as well and will let you know. Assalaamualeykum.
  5. Assalaamualeykum Brother, Thank you for your appreciation. My main motive behind designing a website is to make my App work on all internet enabled devices. I have designed website for Android Tv and IOS devices. If you have a smart tv with web browser support, you can visit my website and play the channels. I have also made it remote friendly website, you can navigate to any channel with the use of remote. Please try and let me know if it work properly on your TV. With your suggestions I can improve it Inshallah. And I am sorry for the late reply, I visit shiachat very rarely now.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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/
  10. 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
  11. Wa aleykumsalaam, Thanks for the clarification, I thought Yusha bin Nun was from aale Harun.
  12. 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.
  13. 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)
  14. 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.

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/
