  1. It has been widely reported by the Sunni commentators of the Holy Qur’an that: Ibn Abbas narrated: When the above verse (42:23) was revealed, the companions asked: "O’ the Messenger of Allah! Who are those near kin whose love Allah has made obligatory for us?”Upon that the Prophet (S) said: "‘Ali, Fatimah, and their two sons.”He (S) repeated this sentence thrice. Sunni references: 1. Tafsir al-Kabir, by Fakhr al-Din al-Razi, Part 27, pp 165-166 2. Tafsir al-Tha’labi, under the commentary of verse 42:23 of Qur’an 3. Tafsir al-Tabari, by Ibn Jarir al-Tabari, under verse 42:23 4. Tafsir al-Qurtubi, under commentary of verse 42:23 of Qur’an 5. Tafsir al-Kashshaf, by al-Zamakhshari, under commentary of verse 42:23 6. Tafsir al-Baidhawi, under the commentary of verse 42:23 of Qur’an 7. Tafsir al-Kalbi, under commentary of verse 42:23 of Qur’an 8. al-Madarik, in connection with verse 42:23 9. Dhakha’ir al-Uqba, by Muhibbuddin al-Tabari, p25 10. Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, 11. al-Sawa’iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar Haythami, Ch. 11, section 1, p259 12. Shawahid al-Tanzeel, Hakim Hasakani, al-Hanafi, v2, p132 13. Many others such as Ibn Abi Hatam, al-Tabarani, etc. Then the Prophet (S) continued: "Verily Allah has dedicated my wage (of prophethood) to love of my Ahlul-Bayt, and I shall question you about it on the day of judgment."

  2. Relate to them the story of the man to whom We sent Our signs, but he passed them by: so Satan followed him up, and he went astray. If it had been Our will, We should have elevated him with Our signs; but he inclined to the earth, and followed his own vain desires. His similitude is that of a dog: if you attack him, he lolls out his tongue, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls out his tongue. That is the similitude of those who reject Our signs; So relate the story; perchance they may reflect. 7:175-176 This is the story of a man who became so religious that Allah SWT revealed communications with him, however this man ended up using them for evil. If Allah SWT knew this man will turn out bad, why did He give him those communications in the first place? Each individual is to be treated based on his current actions. Also, if the Prophet (PBUH&HF) had killed any of his companions, others (due to their lack of knowledge) would not understand the action of the Prophet (PBUH&HF) and would have either fought with him or would have left islam.
  3. Wudu: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shia+way+of+wudu Prayer: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shia+way+of+praying P.S. Welcome to Shia brother
  4. To add to what the brother above me has said, this also has reference in the Holy Quran: And Allah hath caused you to grow as a growth from the earth, (17) And afterward He maketh you return thereto, and He will bring you forth again, a (new) forthbringing. (Sura/Chapter Nooh)
  5. If your criteria for marriage is a "Lebanese Only" girl, don't be upset if the girl you find has a "Arab only" criteria...
  6. إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ Fatiha...
  7. Just have a stubble then, you don't have to have a big beard, having a stubble is about right:
  8. there is this as well: http://www.quranexplorer.com/ but if you have already found a website which does what you want it to do, why are you looking for others?
  9. You're right, I do find such tasks slightly.... strange? When I go for lecturing/teaching positions, they require me to deliver a 10 min "mini-teach" session where I have to either teach a few staff or a few students they have. I mean what can you teach in 10 min? how can you show your ability to teach in such short period of time?!

  11. In Sura Maidah, Verse 3 it talks about the religion being completed, that verse was revealed when the Prophet (PBUH&HF) announced Imam Ali (as) as his successor, but verse 67 was sent to the Prophet (PBUH&HF) before verse 3 which ordered him to announce Imam Ali (as) as his successor. and Verse 55 is for when Imam Ali (as) gave his ring in Ruku
  12. making films isn't haram, but what films you make could be..... it's like saying if it's haram to have a knife, no it's not, but what you do with it can be. You can either use it for good (i.e. making food, etc.) or use it in evil (kill people, etc.)
  13. Get yourself a XBOX 360, or wait for the PS4 to come out, get some awesome games on them and enjooooy ;)
  14. whatever you have gone through, and are going through and may go through in the future, all of them combined together will not even be half of what Zainab (as) went through in one day in Karbala...... to be honest, this is what I always think of to give myself hope have you ever had an argument with someone, specially a stranger? maybe for days or even weeks/months later you still think back to that argument and think to yourself "i wish i had said such and such" or "I wish i had punched him/her in the face"...... in all honesty, sometimes i feel like that, but then i think to myself, Imam Hussain (as), when the murder of his family and friends sat on his chest to cut off his blessed head, Imam Hussain (as) himself offered forgiveness to him and even promised him paradise if he was to repent there and then after all he had done..... what we go through is much less than what they went through, so think about that and give yourself hope InshaAllah! and remember: "Surely with difficulty is ease. With difficulty is surely ease." 94:5-6
