  1. Thanks, this is just what I needed. As for you Roachy, its simply not practical to pray where I work. One of my jobs in a petstore, full of dogs, an unclean area to pray.
  2. Here in the USA, often one has to work during times of prayer. I hate missing my prayers because of this. What is the Shia view in regards to this? I heard Shia often pray three times (all five prayers) to compesate for this. Can someone provide some information on this matter? Thanks.
  3. Thank you, this is just what I need. :)
  4. As salaam alaikum my dear Shia brothers and sisters, I have a question. I have been reading some of the various Shia literature, Nahjul Balagha in particular. However, before I dive into it fully, I have a burning question about it as well as Shia Hadiths. I remember reading several years ago (probably from some Wahhabi website) that the Shia Hadiths and Shia literature don’t have science of verification like the Sunni does. Is this true, or do the Shia also have a method to insure the soundness of their hadiths and writings as well? Thanks in advance, I look forward to all of y'all replies.
  5. Salam, I am interested in finding Nahjul Balagha, and the Shia hadiths in English. However, I cannot seem to find them. If anyone can help me find them I would be very thankful. I would be great in pdf form. :)
  6. lol! :!!!: She's using some logic, they are just being arrogant towards her.
  7. Okay what I was trying convey was are men superior to women. Are women more naturally prone to sin than men? If your a woman are you more likely to go to hell (probability wise) just because your gender? These are Sunni hadiths, but I am fairly sure similar stuff can be found in Shia Hadiths as well, as that quote from Nahjul Balagha was every bit as bad. I'll look for some Shia Hadiths as well. "Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (pbuh) as saying: Woman is like a rib. When you attempt to straighten it, you would break it. And if you leave her alone you would benefit by her, and crookedness will remain in her." "Narrated Sa'd ibn Malik: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no hamah, no infection and no evil omen; if there is in anything an evil omen, it is a house, a horse, and a woman. (Book #29, Hadith #3911)" "Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If one of you marries a woman or buys a slave, he should say: "O Allah, I ask Thee for the good in her, and in the disposition Thou hast given her; I take refuge in Thee from the evil in her, and in the disposition Thou hast given her." When he buys a camel, he should take hold of the top of its hump and say the same kind of thing. (Book #11, Hadith #2155)" "Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) cursed the wailing woman and the woman who listens to her. (Book #20, Hadith #3122)" "Narrated Usama: The Prophet said. "I stood at the gate of Paradise and saw that the majority of the people who entered it were the poor while the wealthy were stopped at the gate (for the accounts). But the companions of the Fire were ordered to be taken to the Fire. Then I stood at the gate of the Fire and saw that the majority of those who entered it were women." Volume 7. Book 62. Number 124" From the above, it seems that women are far inferior to men, at least according to the hadith. It is my opinion that this is completely illogical, and women and men are equivalent.
  8. "And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong; and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our Allah and your Allah is One, and unto Him we surrender." The Quran stresses kindness towards the people of the book, so obviously Muslims should show such kindness and respect towards other sects; perhaps even more so.
  9. Why the racist statement? House Negro?! It seems you are using much the same terminology that "western/zionist imperialists" use. :!!!: Edit: I read your report, it was very well written. Thanks.
  10. I have a 17 hour work day tomorrow so I'll answer those question when I am done.
  11. Here is the thing though, it is not 100% accepted Allah (swt) has allowed. I mean it is mentioned in various hadiths, but from what I know twelver Shia which claim that it is mentioned in the Quran. All other sects of Muslims apparently disagree with it.
  12. The largest lemurs such as the now extinct koala lemurs grew in similar size to chimpanzees. These animals went extinct about 500 years ago. The largest lemurs today is the indri and diademed sifaka which can reach a weight of about 14 kg.
  13. Yes I am very interested in Natural History, and studied it for many years. About tigers, they need to prey on large animals over 50 kg. Jungles might have more small animals, but such large animals are not common in the forest of Sumatra or Bali. Tigers need large amounts of megafauna, where as eagles don't. Tigers have higher densities if the availability of prey is higher. The following entries are listed in decreasing order of the density of ungulate prey (Nowell & Jackson 1996): * 0.12 individuals/sq km (0.3 individuals/sq mi) (Nagarhole, India) * 0.1 individuals/sq km (0.3 individuals/sq mi) (Ranthambore, India) * 0.09 individuals/sq km (0.2 individuals/sq mi) (Chitwan, Nepal) * 0.07 individuals/sq km (0.2 individuals/sq mi) (Kanha, India) * 0.04 adults/sq km (0.1 adults/sq mi) (Bengkulu, Sumatra, Indonesia) * 0.01 - 0.02 adults/sq km (0.03 - 0.06 adults/sq mi) (Gunung Leuser, Sumatra, Indonesia) * 0.01 adults/sq km (0.03 adults/sq mi) (Huai Kha Khaeng, Thailand) * 0.006 - 0.009 individuals/sq km (0.02 individuals/sq mi) (Lazovsky, Russia) * 0.001 - 0.005 individuals/sq km (0.003 - 0.01 individuals/sq mi) (Sikhote Alin, Russia). Note that Sumatra is at the near bottom (in ungulate prey) of the list and is second only to Thailand which may house tigers of similar size to the Sunda Island variety (130 kg), and Amur tigers which grow to large sizes under Bergmann's rule (cold weather). Because of this, it rivals the large Bengal tiger in size (220 kg). Megafauna often favor more open areas than jungles, perhaps because of jungles ability to restrict movement. So there is three main factors at play with, area size, prey density, and temperature. Thylacoleo - marsupial lion, and was a moderately large marsupial carnivore from the Pleistocene era. However, its name is a misnomer because it is not related to cats. I reckon Thylacosmilus would mean something along the lines of "marsupial sabre" or "pouch sabre" and was a carnivorous marsupial that looked similar (but was unrelated also) to the now extinct sabre toothed cats such as Smilodon Fatalis. What kind of videos do you have? I'll check your other topic.
  14. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2288515091190878589 There is a program I watched on PressTV called "spite of the soil" which explains the MKO in detail. There is three parts.
