  1. Perfect! you answered my question. I consider Wasa'il al Shia as a reliable book though not a primary source. Thank you brother!
  2. Salat-e-Wahshat is a popular salat that is prayed for the deceased on the first night of burial and believed to lessen punishment of the grave. I know the details and procedure of this prayer. What I am trying to find out is if this prayer is based on hadith or invented later. Does anyone know original source (book of hadith and compiler) which lists this prayer?
  3. What I meant is that this system only allows for 3 choices and each choice revolves around the mujtahid: I) Become a mujtahid. ii) Do taqleed of a mujtahid iii) Do a sort of collective taqleed of all the mujtahids through exercising precaution by examining all their rulings on a given issue. That they are self-serving is self explanatory as these rules have been formulated by the mujtahids themselves.
  4. Thank you. You have provided the perfect definitions of bid'ah. See the article: https://ahlulbaytmission.org/2019/08/22/definition-and-scope-of-bidah/ It is not allowed for a scholar to show any reluctance or give into social pressure in the face of bid'ah: رسولُ الله صلى الله عليه وآله : إذا ظهَرتِ البِدعُ في اُمّتي فلْيُظهِرِ العالِمُ علمَهُ ، فمَن لَم يَفعلْ فعَلَيهِ لَعنةُ اللّهِ Rasool Allah (s) said: When the innovations appear in my community (ummah), the scholar must manifest his knowledge (I.e. speak against them). So the one who does not do so, upon him be the curse of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). [Al Kafi V 1 – The Book Of Intellect and Ignorance CH 19 H 2]
  5. I wouldn't worry about that. Such thinking would open the most dangerous doors - any bid'at can now be easily introduced into religion on the excuse that maybe the hadith which recommend it are lost. It is Allah's responsibility to make sure that the complete religion reaches us. Hadith al thaqalayn guarantees it. It means the same thing to me. I can rephrase the question then: Is there any hadith that says that Shias will survive directly as a result of the acts of their azadari? In fact religion can be destroyed if f bid'ah is introduced in the name of azadari. Refer to the article: https://ahlulbaytmission.org/2019/08/29/dangers-of-bidah/ امام على عليه السلام : ما هَدمَ الدِّينَ مثلُ البِدع Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said: Nothing destroys religion like the innovations. [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 92, no. 98] رسولُ الله صلى الله عليه وآله : من أتى ذا بدْعةٍ فعطَّمهُ فإنَّما يَسْعى في هَدْمِ الإسلام Rasool Allah (s) said: If one comes across an innovation and appreciates it (sides with it), he has assisted in the demolition of Al Islam. [Al Kafi V 1 – The Book Of Intellect and Ignorance CH 19 H 3] There is no way to find out if a scholar is corrupt or not if you don't demand proof from him from hadith. There are no hadith which encourage either men or women to wear black as a sign of mourning. However, we are concerned more with the inner dress (libaas) than the outer coverings like cloak, blanket, chador, turban etc. As there are hadith which allow black cloaks and turbans.
  6. It is not shaky ground brother. Reading and acting on the hadith makes for a very strong foundation in religion. Imam Jafar Sadiq (عليه السلام) said: الامام الصادق (عليه السّلام): من دخل فى هذا الدّين بارّجال أخرجهُ منهُ الرّجال كما أدخلوهُ فيهِ، ومن دخل فيه بالكتاب و السُّنّة زالت الجبال قبل أن يزول The one who enters this religion through men will exit it through men just as they caused him to enter it. And whoever enters this religion through the Book and the Sunnah, mountains will move before he does (in his faith). [Bihar al Anwar, v2, p105, #67] Every act in religion must be based on the Sunnah - the hadith. Do you know of any hadith where our Imams (عليه السلام) said that the deen will survive through the acts of azadari of the Shias? If there are I would like to know them. Whether they profit or not - we are not allowed to follow them unless they can prove their statements from hadith.
  7. If this was all "common sense" every mujtahid wouldn't have to publish these rules in their risalahs (tawdhi ul masaeel).
  8. You have just defined corruption. :-)
  9. Is there any hadith which lists these three options? No - the above 3 rules have been created by the very same mujtahids who want to impose their taqleed on you. These are self-serving rules. For me the issue of black clothes is resolved. I am convinced that a person will be much safer on the day of judgement because there doesn't exist a single hadith which commands or requests the Shias to wear black clothes (the only exception being the turban, cloak and socks). By following scholars (instead of hadith) people will continue to be misguided because they are being conditioned to put their full trust in them (I.e. the scholars) and not demand from them proof from hadith.
  10. True. I don't care about reward either. But I do care that religion is not corrupted by "scholars" who make acts as mustahab without presence of hadith. We can't mourn Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) through disobedient acts. Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) gave up his life for a higher goal - to preserve religion and to ensure it is not corrupted.
  11. You agree there is no extra reward for wearing black. Neither are there any hadith where the Ahulbayt (عليه السلام) have explicitly asked/requested/commanded the Shias to wear black clothing while mourning them. On the other hand there are numerous hadith which condemn black clothing without any exceptions for mourning. So why wear black? I fail to understand why we Shias are so obsessed with and adamant on wearing black. I fail to understand how the "scholars" can say it is mustahab to wear black when there is no extra reward for it.
  12. Br Jaane Rabb - Even the Qur'an can only be understood through the hadith of Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). The allegation of hadith corruption is overplayed. The corruption is minor and detectable easily through simple litmus tests which the Imams (عليه السلام) have shown. Please refer to the following article on my blog: https://ahlulbaytmission.org/2016/10/18/resolving-disparities-in-hadith/ Also refer to: https://ahlulbaytmission.org/about/
  13. Thanks for the lengthy tortuous analysis. Do you mind quoting just one hadith which explicitly mentions the reward for wearing black clothes while mourning Imam Hussain?
  14. The one who performs an act in the name of religion needs to defend the practice by producing proof from hadith. Not the other way round. With your line of reasoning there would be no concept of bid'ah in religion. The Sunnis added "assalatu kharum minannaum" to adhan. Please show a narration of the Prophet (s) where he forbid that this statement should be added to the adhan. Therefore according to your line of reasoning this addition is not bid'ah. Neither is taraawih, tying hands in salat, washing ears and neck in wudhu, etc.
  15. Of course it is considered a part of religion. Why else would the religious scholars promote it and deem it to be mustahab (I.e. earns thawab)
