  1. salam fellows, I was thinking the other day, why don't we have milads on 25th decembers. It is also a huge day for Muslims as it is the birthday of one of the Greatest Prophets (Hazrat Isa s.a.) who is still alive. Can anyone please provide any fatawa prohibitting on conducting milads on 25th december for celebrating the birth anniversary of Hazrat Isa s.a. ? or any ahadith prohibiting it. Thank you.
  2. Salam, though it is an old thread but some recent events land me here. The way first, second so on ... were referenced in zyarat could not be described any better for at least following two reasons: Firstly, it protects the history(truth) from fading. If there would be names, it would make enemies distort truth by saying, these people are not them, they are some other persons of same name in some other timeline. Secondly, it refers the character instead of name. We are so much focused on the names (nouns) that we hated these names, we do not name our childrens to these, though might be correct at minimal level, but here more important point is presented, that is character. we have to curse the character instead of name (which is just a noun). We have to hate the character and it's traits, such that no such traits can be found within us and upbring our children without having any such traits in them too. In our circles there are so many people with reflection of that character, even having cursing of name on their tongue. How many of us lie? How many of us are hypocrite to our actions? How many of us have thirst for power and throne? How many of us do not fulfill our promise ? How many of us don't pay khums, usurping the rights of the children of Bibi Fatima s.a. and Mola Ali s.a. ? Guess whose character reflections are these... This can be one of important point of Imam s.a., by stating it like that in zyarat. Just my two cents...
  3. Thanks you Hidaren and Irfani313 for your replies. Good point regarding Makarem Shirazi, I will InshAllah try to consult him next time
  4. Salam, I want to ask a question, I follow (taqleed of) a marj'a. I ask him questions on email, but since long time there is never any single response. In the beginning I received replies few (may be 4-5) times, 10 years back, but after that no reply is ever received. No doubt, I have learned the religion from his various other/many passive resources (such as tozih and QnAs), though they don't answer all of my questions. Although I know, he would be extremely busy, but I am in doubt, is it killing the very idea of taqleed, when I have questions and the marj'a I am following is not responding or replying to my questions. Even I am having doubts in paying him khums from my hard earned money, instead of giving it to someone else (other marj'a) who would really help me in attaining/keeping on right path, and removing my doubts and confusions. The doubts have increased so much in my heart that it starts appearing to me that the marj'a system is only there to collect khums not to help us in religious affairs and understanding the Islam (I may be over generalizing it). Please help me here, it is getting very confusing. Thank you.
  5. Thank you friend @eThErEal for your input. Let me ask you a simple question, according to concepts of raining in Islam, Hazrat Mikhail (s.a.) is an archangel responsible for raining and thunder, now scientifically it is proved that sun heated the water, vapors form cloud, wind blow the clouds and a process causes the clouds to rain and thunder. Where is the Hazrat Mikhail (s.a.) comes in picture ? Even when clouds are going to rain in Istambul and (for example.) it below above Iran, using Cloud Seeding technique, Iran can forced the clouds to rain there, instead of Istambul. I am not saying that I don't believe in Hazrat Mikhail (s.a.), I am only trying to understand the Islamic concepts in terms of our very limited knowledge. If we stop thinking in these terms, we will left behind others and also these thing could distract a lot of people in future. About "Nur", it is not something like the light we see, the light we can see consits of photons. Photons can be blocked, captured, break up, so on. This light takes time to travel from one place to another. See here, "Nur" word was used by Allah to let us understand things, not in literally meanings. I listened to a lecture a while ago, which describes a hadeeth that Nur of Allah by definition is something which doesnot composed of anything, which can not be divided or collected. Also the Nur of Allah is different form the Nur of Angles. Thank you friend @Tendersoul for you useful input. I will keep in mind to contact you further in this regards :)
  6. Thank you Brother Tendersoul. has anyone else something to share in this view :) I am bumped...
  7. Salam Bro. tendersoul, I completely agree with you. According to the interpretation above, supposedly, if some angles are the force which cause rain, and using cloud seeding man make the cloud rains, it is still obeying the command of Allah. Similarly, bringing commands down every Laylatul Qadr doesn't mean (I don't know, just supposing) something like human form with wings taking a scroll from heaven to Prophets or Imams, as we imagine, it supposedly could be any thing we can't understand, such as we heard that sometimes when our Prophet PBUH receive the commands during sleep, His PBUH head got heavy (I don't know whether we 12wers believe this narration or not). The other fact is that sometimes, Prophet get commands as true dreams, see here, commands are not in scroll form. If anyone could provide Ayaats/Hadeeths/scholarly works regarding supporting or rejection of this idea, I will be grateful. Thank you.
  8. Salam friends, does anyone know/remember any Hadeeth in favour or against this view ?
  9. Salam Brothers and Sisters, Can we interpret angles as forces and principles driving this and any other universe ? This idea came to me that we are used to think of angles having some form similar to human being, but Quran says that sometimes, they came in the form of human, which means that their actual form is not human. All angles prostrate before Adam, it could mean that Allah made all the forces and principle of this and any other universe obey the man, and man can achieve such a status that he could modify/bend the forces and principles to his will, see: cloud seeding for artificial raining, also water cycle, see these are forces doing things which we are told are done by angels, so can we conclude that the angels are synonyms for forces/energies/principles ? We learn that no one can harm angles and we know that energy can not be created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another. We also learned that angels are always in worship to Allah, and the meaning of worship is more than just bowing and prostration, doing the assigned job for which one is responsible from Allah, is also kind of worship. We can not see angels from our eyes, but the higher state people see them, could it mean from their eye of wisdom as we can easily know the existence of forces and energies with simple experiments. So, is it correct or wrong to say that angels are forces/energies/principles driving this and any other universe, or they are entirely different thing than what I stated here ? Thank you.
  10. Thank you brother Tawheed313 for reference of Dua Iftitah, I will definitely look at it.
  11. Thank you brother Mostafaa for clarification :)
  12. Salam, I was reading the daily dua of Ramazan as here http://www.duas.org/pdfs/Ram30days.pdf On 27th day of ramazan, I found out that it called that night as great night (Shab-e-Qadar), while in Shia community 23rd night is most authentically the great night (Shab-e-Qadar). Can any friend please clarify this discrepancy ? Thank you.
  13. Thanks friends, I find the reference here: mam Ali b. Abi Talib (A.S.) and Al-Harith al-Hamadani He said: Abul Hasan Ali b. Muhammad b. al-Zubair reported to me from Muhammad b. Ali b. Mahdi, who reported from Muhammad b. Ali b. Amru who reported from his father, from Jamil b. Swaleh, from Abu Khalid al-Kabuli, from al-Asbagh b. Nubatah who said: Al-Harith Al-Hamadani called upon Amirul Mo'mineen (Ali Ibn Abi Talib) with a company of the Shias, and I was among them. Al-Harith walked with a bent stature, hitting his walking stick hard on the ground. He was indeed ill. So Amirul Mo'mineen came close to him and al-Harith had a good standing in his estimation, and he said: "How do you find yourself, O Harith?" He said: "The vicissitude of time has overtaken me, and the dispute among your companions about you and the three before you, has added to my anguish and anger. There are those who have gone to the extreme in their passionate love for you, and those who are yours in moderation, and those who waver in doubt, not knowing whether to proceed or recoil." He (Ali) said: "Suffice it for you, Oh brother (from) Hamadan! Be it known that my best followers are the people united on the middle path. To them should the extremists return, and with them should the hesitants join." Then al-Harith said: "My father and mother be your ransom, could you (further clarify so as to) remove the filth from our hearts, and (to) make us as sure about our affair as seeing with one's eyes?" He (peace be upon him) said: "That is enough for you. You are possessed by confusion. Surely, the religion of Allah is not known (or judged) by the people, it is recognized by the sign of Truth. Know the Truth, and you shall know its people. O Harith, surely Truth is the best (and most sublime) narration, and whosoever utters it is indeed a fighter (a soldier of Truth). I have informed you the Truth, so lend me your ear and inform among your friends who have sound judgement. Be it known that I am a slave of Allah, the brother of His messenger and his first confirmer. I confirmed his truth when Adam lay between the spirit and the body. Then, I am his first confirmer truth among you people. We are the first and we are the last. And we are his special ones with distinction, and we are his sincere ones. And I am his cousin, and his successor, and his trustee and possessor of his confidence and secret. I have been given the understanding of the Book, and (blessed with) sound judgement and decision, and the knowledge about the generations and the relations. And I am entrusted with a thousand keys, each key opens a thousand chapters, each chapter breaks into a thousand testament. And in addition, I am supported and especially chosen and helped by the Night of Qadr, and that continues for me and my descendants who guard against sins, for as long as the days and the nights subsist, till such time when Allah shall inherit the earth and all who are upon it. I give you glad tidings, O Harith, you shall recognize me at the time of death, and at the Bridge, and at the Pool, and at the time of division." Al-Harith said: "O my master, what is the time of division?" He said: "Division at the hell-fire, when I will make a correct separation. I shall say: This is my friend, so leave him; this is my adversary, so take him" Then Amirul Mo'mineen took (al-Harith) by his hand and said: "I hold your hand the way the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny), held my hand and said (when I complained to him about the envious Quraish and the hypocrites) 'Surely, on the Day of Judgement, I shall hold the rope of Allah and cling to His safeguard, and you, O Ali, shall hold fast to my safeguard, and your descendants shall cling to your safeguard, and your Shias shall hold fast to the safeguard of all of you.' So what will Allah do to His Prophet? And what will the Prophet do to his successor? (The same shall we do to our followers). Take this, O Harith, the summary of all the details. Yes, you shall be with the one you love, and for you shall be what you have earned." He said this three times. Then al-Harith stood up, pulling his cloak behind him, and saying: "After this, I care not when Death meets me or I meet it." Jameel B. Swaleh says that Abu Harith Seyyid al-Himyari, may Allah bless him with mercy, narrated this for me in the following poem: "The statement of Ali to Harith is marvelous, And how much of marvels did he carry with him? (He said) O Harith of Hamadan, whoever dies shall see me, Be he a believer or a hypocrite, a clear sight before him. His eyes shall recognize me, and I will know him, By his attributes, his name, and by his deeds. I shall quench his thirst with cold water, The sweetness of which will seem to you like that of honey. And when you will stand before hell fire, I shall say, Leave him, and do not be near him, Leave him, and be away from him, for indeed, He has a rope bound with the rope of the Prophet's successor."

  14. Salam, I heard that at a time of severe illness of a sahabi (s.a.), Imam Ali (s.a.) visited him. He (Imam s.a) told him that he (Imam s.a.) will be there, three times, for every believer, 1. at time of death, 2. in grave and 3. in barzakh, so no need to worry about it, or afraid of it. (Please note that it doesn't mean that not to worry about their deeds, just mean that not to worry/afraid of change of environment and also to have biggest wish come true of meeting with Ameer ul Momineen s.a., and best to have him (s.a) as companion.) Can anyone please tell me the source of above story and its authentication, I will be grateful to you. Thank you.
