  1. Dear @starlight, @Moalfas and @Ali883 Thank you for your replies. Kindly consider the words, Look Sajdah-gah(creation), See Allah(creator) I do not mean seeing with physical eyes, instead perceiving that this thing whether looking at Sajdah-gah made up of sand, or looking at Earth or looking at myself, is not made by itself, there is a creator of all of it, to Whom I am praying to. Behind every creation is a creator, so we can see creator (not physically) through creation. May be now it would be easy to understand my question.
  2. AssalamoAlaikum dear brothers and sisters in Islam, By considering following Hadith: Pray as you are seeing Him or at least as He is seeing you. (Higher rank for seeing Him) by Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Nahjul balagha: A person asked Mola Ali(s.a.) that have you seen Allah? Mola Ali (s.a) said that offcourse, I have seen him, do you think I worship the One I haven't seen, but He can not be seen with physical eyes. Imam Khomeini: Ism is a thing helping in recognition of something. Creation gives recognition of creator, so Creation is also kind of Ism for Creator. All creations are Ism of Allah, some creations are better than others so they are Ism Azam. My question is: During prayer/salat, while looking at Sajdah-gah/mohr, to focus more in prayer, can we think that we are seeing Allah? As Allah can not ever be seen by Himself but through his creations. Thanks.
  3. Thanks @Propaganda_of_the_Deed I am really greatful to you. Allah bless you his blessings.
  4. AssalamoAlaikum dear fellows, As per AyatuAllah Aga Sistani ruling, it is not permitted to have temporarily marriage with Ahl-e-Kitab, when have permanent Muslim wife. 1. Can we go with the ruling of some other marja who allows it? 2. Also do you know any marja who allows it? Best regards.
  5. 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.
  6. 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...
  7. Thanks you Hidaren and Irfani313 for your replies. Good point regarding Makarem Shirazi, I will InshAllah try to consult him next time
  8. 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.
  9. 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 :)
  10. Thank you Brother Tendersoul. has anyone else something to share in this view :) I am bumped...
  11. 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.
  12. Salam friends, does anyone know/remember any Hadeeth in favour or against this view ?
  13. 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.
  14. Thank you brother Tawheed313 for reference of Dua Iftitah, I will definitely look at it.
