    Calm got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Female Circumcision   
    Yes that's what I think too. I think the Shia hadiths "it is more favourable with the husband" means what you explained nothing more. Also many Shia hadiths about husband-wife intimacy emphasize and focus a lot about pleasing the wife as much as possible prior to intercourse so my conclusion is that the female circumcision in Shia school of thought is favorable to women(as it provides her more pleasure with her husband) and the Sunni circumcision (reducing pleasure) is not favorable (or even not allowed). Ya'ni not all kind kind of circumcision are cruel after all.

    Calm got a reaction from yellow billed magpie in Prostrate To Husbands Hadith Is It Authentic?   
    I do not see anything wrong with this hadith.
    1-This hadith does NOT say a women is to prostrate to her husband.
    2-People are disagreeing with how dare the Prophet saying that hadith, even if it's just an "IF[..]". He did not recommend it, he did not make it mustahab or anything he just said "IF" .
    3-If we look deeper into the meaning of the hadith we'll know he's just hinting at the gratefulness(what do we say when we do sajdah? we thank God so it's about thanking) of a wife to her husband . If anything, he is not talking about a husband who's bad or irreligious. So if he's talking about the God fearing husband, who follow Islam and the Prophet's directions on how a man should treat his woman(as hadiths mention he should treat her like God's amaanah in his hands, that's how careful a husband should be), the good akhlaaq husband, the one who would follow the Prophet's food steps when he treated his "no-so-good-no-so-obedient" wives with so much goodness(with all what they did he never yelled at them, never beat them, did not insult, did not divorce but instead he held patience with them and offered all the good he's has to them) and compassion THEN hell yes I would prostrate for this kind of husband without even reading this hadith!! (now whether these kind of husbands exist or not that's another discussion).
    ...........
    No, he can't say that Fatimah will prostrate to Imam Ali because it is not allowed, again reffer to the hadith it says "IF" it does say "should" .
    The answer is very obvious, although God did NOT allow prostrating to other than Him, and although the prophet did not claim it was permitted either but again IF and only IF that were to become halaal, it is obvious that Fir'on or any kaffir's wife will not be asked to even obey him let alone thanking him/prostrating to him. Let me give you a simple example. The famous hadith that says Heaven lies under the feet of mothers , does that mean Heaven lies under the feet of the disobedient wife of Nooh? I mean she's a mother too right?....There you go...

    1. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) – ON FAITH: Allah does not look at the value of what you say or the wealth that you have. He looks at what you believe in your heart and how you practise your faith.
    2. Bibi Fatima Zahra (a.s.) – ON PARENTS: Allah has asked you to be kind and obedient to your parents. Your parent’s happiness will protect you like a shield against Allah’s anger and displeasure.
    3. Imam Ali (a.s.) – ON LYING: A person never becomes a true Muslim until s/he stops telling lies whether seriously or as a joke.
    4. Imam Hasan (a.s.) – ON ANGER: Never get angry at someone when they are angry. It takes two people to start a fight.
    5. Imam Husain (a.s.) – ON HELPING: One who helps a Muslim in this world will be helped by Allah on the Day of Judgement.
    6. Imam Ali Zainul Abideen (a.s.) – ON FORGIVENESS: If someone insults you but later comes back and apologises, then accept the apology.
    7. Imam Muhammad Al Baqir (a.s.) – ON THINKING BEFORE SPEAKING: Nobody remains free from sin unless he guards his tongue.
    8. Imam Ja’far As Sadiq (a.s.) – ON RIGHTS OF OTHERS: A Muslim should greet his fellow Muslim with Salaam, visit him when he is ill and defend his honour in his absence.
    9. Imam Musa Al Kadhim (a.s.) – ON LIFE: A Muslim whose last 2 days are the same is a loser.
    10. Imam Ali Ar Ridha (a.s.) – ON REMEMBERING THOSE LESS FORTUNATE: Allah made fasting compulsory so that we may know about the hunger and thirst of people less lucky than us and remember the hunger and thirst of the Day of Judgement.
    11. Imam Muhammad At Taqi (a.s.) – ON OUR ACTIONS: You cannot hide from the sight of Allah, so be careful of everything that you do so you do not displease Him.
    12. Imam Ali An Naqi (a.s.) – ON KNOWLEDGE: Both the teacher and student get benefit from sitting with each other.
    13. Imam Hasan Al Askari (a.s.) – ON FRIENDSHIP: The best Muslim friend you can have is the one who forgets your mistakes but remembers and mentions the good things you have done to him.

    Iftaar is a noun. Aftara is the verb.
    One of the easiest ways for you to know if a word is a verb or not, it is by asking yourself can this word be used with tanween, if yes then it is not a verb. Example: Huwa aftara(verb) iftarun(noun/notice the tanween) mushbi3.

    If you're saying anything negative (or even something neutral but you know that person wouldn't like this being said about them)about a Muslim during their absence it is gheebah, ya3ni haraam even if it's true. If you want to discuss it with others, have the person present and speak all you want (while respecting the other fiqhi laws), but at least it wont be gheebah. The big problem with gheebah as opposed to many other sins, is that you're committing two offenses at once, one towards God's laws and one towards the person so istighfaar by itself is not sufficient.

    Calm got a reaction from Qa'im in Anyone, Please Explain These Two Points--   
    The hadith does not say she's not allowed to spend her own money in anything without permission, the part where it says from her own money it's talking only in regards to nithr/vow*. The previous part of sadaqa etc it's saying from which is with her husband, so from his money she is not allowed to give sadaqa without his permission, from her money the only thing she's not allowed to give without his permission is nithr. I understand the hadith seems confusing because of the wording and punctuation..I hope you can make sense from what I'm saying. The translation is not exact either.I added colors to the Arabic version hoping it would make the meaning clearer.
    According to Maraji' fatawa, she is allowed to do whatever she wants with her money without the need to take her husband permission for it. The fatawa also say a married woman cannot make any nithr without her husbands permission. It seems saying the same as the quoted hadith. The Malihaa (her money) word is only in regards to nithr (vow) it is not condition for the rest of the words before nithr , the other words (actions) sadaqa tadbeer etc are from which is from her husbands.
    why not nithr*: a wife cannot make a vow in money without her husbands permission because he's the one who is supposed to give her money she 'need' so if she is to add a wajib/vow to the list of what are her usual expenses are, this implies that he is responsible to pay this money and hence she cannot make something wajib (therefore religiously should get out of his money) of her money without his permission, her money is not supposed to be for what is wajib on him..

    Calm reacted to Qa'im in Were The Classical Scholars Muqassirs?   
    On the issue of ilham, wouldn't some kind of divine inspiration exist between Allah and the Hidden Imam? Wouldn't he be waiting for Allah's divine order to reveal himself, as his appearance does not seem conditional or an issue of no bada. On the issue of communication, I think there are enough traditions out there that suggest that the Imam at times can hear angelic voices. Wahi on the other hand would imply an archangel revealing a new order or new law; which is the function of a prophet. Nonetheless, Maryam (as) saw and heard the angel (in a human form), and Allah says "awHayna" in relation to the mother of Musa (though unclear if it's an order via an angel, or just an implicit inspiration/ ilham). What about Talut (as), didn't Allah need to order him and his people not to drink from the water? Or Fatima (as) and her mus`haf? I don't see the issue with supernatural transfers of knowledge as it seems to have happened to non-prophets too, as long as it fits within the Qur'an and the Sunna.

    this shows that in that very time, even between teacher and student, there was difference on opinion about aqeeda but would mufeed call saduq a muqassir? They both came to different conclusions with pretty much the same resources at their disposal and so this shows that the labelling of muqassir and ghulati isnt black and white.

    I've posted this before but I'll repost it here as this is the more appropriate section (and in case any one missed it you can read it).
    http://ahlulakhlaq.w...taining-akhlaq/
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Holy Prophet (pbuh) and his Ahlulbayt (as), the pinnacle of creation, were sent down to complete the infallible religion of Islam. To do this they themselves must be infallible so that no flaws arise.
    So what does this have to do with Akhlaq/Mannerisms?
    To first attempt to even improve our Akhlaq we must have something to compare it against so that we know what level we're at and what needs to be done for this improvement to happen, in practical terms.
    What better comparison than our beloved ma'soom? Because they do not sin, they are perfect in every way. They are our set examples, like our fathers we must obey them but also make it so that we try to be like them in every aspect.
    We know that they are perfect and therefore the level of Akhlaq shown by them is second to none. So by accepting their perfection in all aspects is the first step to improving our selves.
    Qu'ran & Hadith
    Allah (SWT) speaks about the importance of good conduct in the holy Qu'ran:
    'And say to My servants (that) they speak that which is best.' (17:53)
    'Worship Allah, and do not associate partners with him. And be good to your parents, and the relatives, and to the orphans, and to the poor people, and the neighbor that is close to you and the neighbor that is not close to you, and your companion on the journey.' (4:36)
    These verses remind us that we must show good conduct and morals especially to others e.g. Parents, neighbors, orphans, relatives, friends and even enemies.
    If akhlaq wasn't important it wouldn't be highlited in the Qu'ran.
    There are also numerous Hadith about Akhlaq, I will post a few that highlight that this is no small matter but rather Akhlaq is VITAL to our religion, as I will explain.
    The Holy Prophet (pbuh) has said: 'I have been sent by Allah to teach people good manners.'
    Imam Ali (as) said, 'O Believer! This knowledge and good manners are the value of your soul so strive to learn them, for however much your knowledge and good manners increase, so will your value and worth accordingly.'
    Sulayman-ibn-Mahran said that he visited Imam Sadiq (as) while some of the followers (Shi'a) were attending him (as) and he heard that the Imam (as), addressing them, said,'(Behave) to be as ornaments for us and not to be against us as shame. Tell people of goodness, and protect your tongues and hold it from excessive talk and offensive speech.'
    Just by using a few hadith to back up what is in the Qu'ran and we find akhlaq is a 'must' and not to be taken lightly. As well as looking at the example set by our beloved (as).
    Lets go back and take a look at the time the Prophet (pbuh) had not yet announced prophethood. You'll find that their akhlaq was perfect, they became known as the honest & trustworthy and this was shown through their actions. If the Prophet (pbuh) had bad Akhlaq, nausubilah, then people would have doubted the Prophet (pbuh) at a later date. This example is perfect as it shows akhlaq, in fact, is everything..
    If a 'religous' man/female has no akhlaq then people would be turned off, not just by you but Islam as well.
    So please for the sake of your lord and his chosen faithful servants keep good Akhlaq in everything you do and everyone you meet..Including...
    SHIACHAT

    Calm got a reaction from Gypsy in Reciting Quran   
    You can use the Sunni recitations to learn. There is no different way for Sunnis or Shias recitation. There are different types of recitations though, depending on the different qira'aat. There are ten qira'aat, the most famous is qira'at Hafs 3an 3asim.
    Are you looking just for correct reciting with a7kaam? Or more Tajweed and Tarteel recitations?
    You first need to master reciting the Quran correctly with its a7kaam, then pick one of the famous tarteel reciters, constantly listen to their recitation and imitate it. Record yourself to compare and correct your weak areas and keep practicing, in no time you should be able to beautifully recite Quran. Once that's done, you can get into tajweed, it will get addictive though. You'll need to learn the seven maqamaat of recitations and then you'll enjoy reciting long surahs switching back and forth between maqamaat depending on the meaning of the ayah (sad, happy, neutral etc). You'll feel the meaning of the verses more vivid. You can also try imitating with Tajweed but the beauty of it, is developing your own.

    Calm got a reaction from Gotham in Some of Imam Sadiq's short sayings.   
    Imam Al-Sadiq has plenty of beautiful short sayings. Here are a few (for more sayings click on the source link):

    Note: The translation of the original hadiths is not perfect.

    * Eloquence is in three (things): To approach the meaning of the purpose, to avoid wordiness, and to prove the many (things) with the few (things).
    * The most perfect of men in intellect is the best of them in ethics.
    * The perfection of intellect is in three (things): humbleness for Allah, good certainty, and silence except for good.
    * Ignorance is in three (things): Haughtiness, the intense of dispute, and the ignorance in Allah.
    * Knowledge is a shield, truthfulness is might, ignorance is abasement, understanding is glory, generosity is success, good behavior causes friendship, he who has knowledge about his time, ambiguous things do not attack him, and determination is mistrust.
    * Verily, knowledge is a lock and its key is the question.
    * Whoever acts without prescience is like the walker without way, the speed of walking does not increase him but farness.
    * The favor is not perfected but with three (things): by doing it quickly, debasing it, and hiding it.
    * Not everyone who sees a thing is able to do it, not everyone who is able to do a thing is successful in doing it, and not everyone who is successful in it. When intention, ability, success, and righteousness come together, happiness occurs.
    * Four things of which little is much: Fire, enmity, poverty, and illness.
    * Whoever honors you, then honor him. And whoever scorns you, then honor yourself from him.
    * When the believer becomes angry, his anger should not take him out of the truth; and when he becomes satisfied, his satisfaction should not bring him in falsehood.
    * Some of the correctness of the belief of the Muslim person is that he should not please men through angering Allah, and do not blame them for what Allah has not given him, because the miserliness of the miserly does not drive livelihood, and the hatred of the hater does not live it away, and if one of you escaped from his livelihood as he escapes from death, his livelihood would reach him as death reaches him.
    * Do not backbite, so you are backbited, and do not dig a judge you would be judged by.
    * Be ware of the dispute because it brings about the hateful ugly thing and shows the defect.
    * Nothing is better than silence, no enemy is more harmful than ignorance, and no illness is more dangerous than telling lies.
    * Three (things) are of the noble acts of here and hereafter: Forgive him who has wronged you, visit him who has abandoned you, and be patient when you are treated with ignorance.
    * To visit blood relatives improves manners, makes the self good, increases livelihood, and delays death.
    * Whoever sows enmity reaps what he has sown.
    * Anger is the key of every evil.
    * Anger is the destruction of the wise man.
    * Whoever does not control his anger does not control his intellect.
    * Verily, envy eats belief as fire eats wood.
    Three (things) cause affection: Religion, modesty, and generosity.
    * Whoever gets rid of evil gets glory; whoever gets rid of haughtiness gets dignity, and whoever gets rid of miserliness gets honor.
    * Three (things) cause hatred: hypocrisy, self admiration, and oppression.
