  1. Brother, Forget about best friend for a second. As the popular saying goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed. Can someone provide any authentic narrations about Abu Bakr helping the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) while he was in the Shi'b Abu Talib? When the Holy Prophet and his clan (Banu Hashim) were under siege for 3 years, there is no evidence of Abu Bakr's attempt to relieve the distress of the beleaguered clan but there is evidence that several unbelievers brought essential supplies to it. Is that a deed of a friend? Treatment of Prophet's family post his death by Abu Bakr is another barometer to judge if really was a friend.
  2. The answer is in your post itself. The hadith you have quoted from the Holy Prophet pbuh is from the chapter dealing with virtues of knowledge. If one wants to learn about the inheritance then they should check the chapter dealing with inheritance. The narrations quoted above are about knowledge and not about materialistic wealth. So it would be wrong to take these narrations out of context.
  3. Tell that person to throw all the ingredients required to prepare bread like flour, water etc together into an oven without proper mixing and see if that results in bread. If not, then how can such a complex universe come into existence without any divine interference.
  4. Brother, We only follow what we have been advised by the Holy Prophet pbuh and his Ahlulbayt. So if it was 10th of Imam Ali (as) then the Imams would have told us. We cannot add or remove anything based on our preference.
  5. Fitra should be taken out on the eve of Eid and not before that. However if you want to give it to the needy before Eid prayers then you will have to give it to them as a loan and change the Niyah on the day of Eid to make it a fitra. Hope this helps.
  6. Ammar Nakshawani had recently given a lecture on this topic. Link to the same is as below:
  7. Usurping of Fadak was indeed an oppression towards the daughter of the holy Prophet (pbuh) as she was in control of that piece of land when her workers were chased away. So the onus should have been on the one making the claim to prove that it was a property belonging to the state. But unfortunately, the person making the claim not only took control of it, asked the owners of Fadak to present witnesses but also presided as a judge on this case. Logic defied from every angle. Regarding the wives, they escaped the oppression because the target was the daughter of the Prophet (pbuh). The fact that Prophet's wives continued living in their houses proves that the below narration quoted in defense of Abu Bakr is a concocted one: "Our property is not inherited, but whatever we leave is to be given in charity.' If everything left behind by Prophet was really for charity then the wives would have also been kicked out of their respective homes. The fact that they weren’t is a proof till the end of this world that the daughter of the Prophet had her property which rightfully belonged to her usurped from her. If only people use a little bit of common sense, the whole issue would be crystal clear. It is a very unfortunate truth that people in their blind love do not look at things logically.
  8. Brother, I know you are trying to play the Devli's advocate here but I am sure you can see the flaw in their logic. 1. Did the Prophet kill those people who refused to pay him the Zakat? 2. People like Malik Ibn Nuwayra (ra) were killed for not paying zakat yet he was a Sahabi, so how does this fit the adala of Sahabah? 3. Muwaiyah (la) did not have the right to ask for justice of Uthman's blood as Uthman's sons were alive, did they go to the Caliph of their time? 4. Even if we ignore point 3, how many killers of Uthman did Muwaiya (la) punish after he became the caliph? 5. What becomes of a Muslim who breaks a treaty/agreement? The list can go on but I don't want to derail the thread. Their replies doesn't absolve Muwaiya (la) of his guilt.
  9. Dare them to do the same to those who fought against their first caliph.
  10. Inna Lillahe wa inna ilaihi Rajeeoon. Sorry to hear about your loss brother. May Allah swt grant her a lofty place in the paradise and give your family the strength to deal with this loss.
  11. If they criticize one Sahaba, then they are opening up a floodgate to criticize many more. There lies the danger of their concocted fairy tales being shred to pieces and the very foundation of Adalat-e-Sahaba being punctured. So for them instead, it is better to alter history, distort facts, forget Quranic verses and praise everyone who fought against the Ahlulbayt. All because they can call those individuals stars and add (ra) at the end of their name. Remember, Muwaiyah (la) only used to write letters for the Prophet (pbuh) and they changed the historical facts to make him a scribe of the wahi. He also became Khalul Momineen while the brother of the alleged favourite wife of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) did not get to enjoy that title for obvious reasons. Anyone who fights the First caliph is labeled an apostate but anyone who fights their Fourth Caliph was doing it with good intentions and hence both the parties will get 1 reward. Muwaiya broke the peace treaty but still he is Amir Muwaiya to them. Oooh... their fictional history books are so much fun.
  12. Brother, the problem here is that in trying to prove that Shias are doing things wrong, you are cherry picking on the text which is presented to you. Please re-read what I had mentioned in one of my replies to you: I clearly said saying Ya Ali Madad is one of the ways of doing Tawassul. When did I say that it is the only way? So if you had read my reply completely, you would have gathered that there are different ways of doing Tawassul; instead of highlighting different ways of doing Tawassul and attributing each way to an individual, you should have tried to understand what Tawassul is. Brother Shiaman already presented the reply by Ayatullah Sistani (ra) on the acceptability of saying Ya Ali Madad. Is there any reason to debate further on this? When one of the highest living authority amongst Ulema says it is allowed, I was expecting you to accept this simple fact and move on. It is sad to see that you are constantly trying to prove that you are right and everyone is wrong in this regard. Anyways, Lakum deenukum waliya deen. Take care.
  13. The issue only exists for you. I am responding to your questions and not about the recent trend of the thread. Why is Dua Tawassul not certain? It is mentioned on duas.org : Shaykh Tusi says, in his book Misbah, that Imam Hassan bin Ali Al Askari (as) wrote this dua'a for Abu Muhammad who requested him to teach him the proper way of reciting salawat. Allama Majlisi has mentioned this dua'a on the authority of Ibn babawayh who confidently says that, there is no difficulty or problem that this dua'a does not solve. https://www.duas.org/tawasul.htm The dua does start by addressing Allah swt but after that it is all directly asking the 14 infallible's to intercede on our behalf. So that answers the original question you asked if we can directly ask anyone to intercede on our behalf. Ya Ali Madad is a sunnah of the Holy Prophet (pbuh). I am not a judge of what's in people's heart but I have already told you my opinion on Ya Ali Madad & how it is perceived. If you want to throw in a blanket statement saying all Shias are confused then I am sorry but it is you who is confused. Please don’t judge others based on your knowledge and understanding because in their knowledge and understanding you might be wrong.
  14. I see no issue here. Have you ever recited Dua Tawassul? An excerpt from the same: O Abul-Qasim, O Messenger of Allah O guide of mercy, O intercessor of the community, O our chief, O our master, We We turn towards Allah with your help, seek thy intercession and advocacy before Allah, We call upon you before [mentioning] our requests [to Allah]; O intimate of Allah, Stand by us when Allah sits in judgment over us. If you agree that Imams can only help with Allah's permission then where is the issue? As I had mentioned previously, it is a simple concept. Please don't complicate it.
  15. Response from Ayatullah Sistani: Question: What should be the minimum distance between a woman and a man while both are performing prayers (salat)? whether both can offer prayers within the same room? Answer: The least distance is an “arm” length. In the said case, a woman can pray behind a man, if she believe the man is 'Adil'. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01280/
  16. Ya Ali (as) Madad is a Tawassul because we use him as a means (wasila) to get our prayers answered. Please re-read the verse I had posted it clearly says "... who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission?" So we are asking Imam Ali (as) to intercede on our behalf. It is a simple concept and please do not make it complicated.
  17. If Tawassul is not allowed, then why do we see the below in Quran: [Shakir 2:255] Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases, His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great. Who are the ones you think would have His permission to intercede?
  18. It isn't about just extra prayers. It is also about the fact that the Prophet categorically told people not to do so in congregation and pray the Tahajjud prayers individually at home. Narrated Zaid bin Thabit: Allah’s Apostle made a small room (with a palm leaf mat). Allah’s Apostle came out (of his house) and prayed in it. Some men came and joined him in his prayer. Then again the next night they came for the prayer, but Allah’s Apostle delayed and did not come out to them. So they raised their voices and knocked the door with small stones (to draw his attention). He came out to them in a state of ANGER, saying, “You are still insisting (on your deed, i.e. Tarawih prayer in the mosque) that I thought that this prayer (Tarawih) might become obligatory on you. So you people, offer this prayer (i.e. Tahajjud or the so called Tarawih) at your homes, for the best prayer of a person is the one which he offers at home, except the compulsory (congregational) prayer.”Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 134
  19. Brother, Not sure if you are already aware that today is 1st Ramzan here. Moulana Abul Qasim Rizvi saheb has confirmed the sighting of the moon in Canberra and Brisbane. We rely on the message which gets sent across to the wider community by the Management of the Idaara.
  20. What good are you talking about brother? Not adhering to Prophet's (pbuh) words; or Usurping the caliphate from it's rightful owner; or Disrespecting the daughter of the Holy Prophet (pbuh); or Usurping Fadak from their rightful owners; or Introducing bidah in the religion ........ I am trying to understand which good things you are talking about here?
