  1. This is the essence of dua tawassul. To me it seems to be talking about the Day of Judgment, but even if it isn't we appear to be asking the Masumeen (as) to intercede on our behalf before Allah (swt), but once you throw wilayat takweenyat into the mix, then there is no need for this anymore. The Masumeen (as) can help you on their own, as long as you remember when you ask them that their power comes from Allah (swt) and is not independent of Him. So, to recap: according to some people the Masumeen (as) are all hearing, all seeing, know our thoughts, can process this mass of information they a
  2. You are just answering my question with another. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the best of creation, which everyone agrees on, so why not say Ya Muhammad instead? Shouldn't it be at least as effective as Ya Ali? Or, if all the Ahlul Bayt (as) are of the same level, then Ya Mahdi, since he is the Imam of our time and is actually present with us. To use a favourite analogy of some of you, doesn't it make more sense to go to the doctor that lives next door than the one in a different city?
  3. Really? I must have missed those. Inshallah I will catch the repeats one day. However, I remember watching a few discussion points that I thought would be interesting, and was a bit disappointed.
  4. I want to see what they say. Either response has certain implications. I assume they believe the better person should have been Caliph. If not, I would like to know why. Ok, obviously all the Shias know the difference between Imam Hasan (as) and Muawiya, but some Sunnis might have a difference of opinion.
  5. You can pray on other non-edible natural substances too. For example, you could pray on a straw carpet.
  6. Ok, even assuming you are right about all this stuff, can someone explain to me why all the talk is of Ali (as)? It would make more sense to me for it to be either about Muhammad (pbuh), who is the greatest of creation, or Imam Mahdi (as) who is the Imam of our time. I don't hear to many people saying Ya Muhammad Madad, or talking about the 'love of Muhammad' though.
  7. Judging by your reaction on another thread, it's the Muslim one I take it?
  8. These kinds of claims exist in all religions. It's not proof of anything.
  9. Why did Imam Hasan (as) give up the Caliphate in favour of Muawiya? There is such a thing as the greater good.
  10. I don't agree that the channel isn't as good as it used to be, it might just be that you have learnt things since then, and don't feel like you are learning as much as you used to. That is my feeling anyway. Like I said above, the channel seems a bit repetitive to me sometimes, but I'm sure that anyone finding it for the first time will think it's great just like I did when I first saw it.
  11. From what I recall Aisha narrated that Fatima (as) remind angry with Abu Bakr until she died. Are you calling Aisha a liar? I advise you to stop with these provocations. The bravery and dignity of the Ahlul Bayt was clearly shown during Karbala. They didn't resort to cheap tricks like Muawiya (la), putting pages of the Qur'an onto spears like a coward.
  12. The way I look at it is if for example you do a good deed for your parents, like reading Qur'an or giving to charity, then your parents should get some reward for bringing up a pious child. It's like if a person sets up a charity during their life, then they should keep getting the rewards from it even after they die. In general, if you do this for someone not related to you, then I suppose they will get more reward for whatever good deeds they did during their life that caused people to pray for them. This is just a personal view, and I'm not sure of how exactly it works in reality.
  13. I hope you aren't going to be one of these guys who is going to bring out all the old missionary complaints against the Qur'an. What next, that the Qur'an says that Jesus (as) was the nephew of Moses (as)? Whatever you come up with, it has been said and refuted before, so don't waste your time.
  14. I know Sunnis generally consider Abu Bakr to be greater than Umar who was greater than Uthman who was greater than Ali (as), but who do Sunnis consider to be greater between Muawiya and Imam Hasan (as) ?
  15. Having listened to some of the callers the brother was talking about, I don't think he meant stupid in the sense you think. What I have noticed is that people will call in, make some secterian comment, and then ask for the guest to make some comment on it. Or you get another group that will try and bring the discussion to Imam Ali (as) no matter what the topic is about. These are callers that do have some knowledge, but they always call in to make the same points, and it gets annoying after a while. Why does everything have to be brought back to the Sunni-Shia split or Imam Ali (as)? Anyway, I
  16. The Sunnis are the real rafidi, since they rejected the divinely appointed leadership of the Imams (as).
  17. No matter how bad it might get in Western countries, for the time being there is no comparison between the level of tolerance between them and a place like Pakistan.
  18. Ok, that is your view. How about you provide some evidence that it didn't happen?
  19. So you don't believe that Imam Ali (as) gave allegiance to Abu Bakr?
  20. He gave a hadith, did you miss it? Why don't you provide a hadith that says it didn't happen?
  21. Like I said in the othe thread, this guy is a comedian. Only a brainwashed Wahhabi would take him seriously. The funniest part is always when he pretends he has come up with some brilliant question or argument. Like he is just about to reveal his refutation of Shi'ism. :lol:
  22. Are you Shia? If so, you can combine your prayers so that you only have to pray at 3 times of the day. So you will still pray Fajr as normal, but then you pray Dhuhr and Asr one after the other, and then Maghrib and Isha one after the other. In both cases, you have the choice to pray seperately or together. If you have doubt about this, then there is proof in Sunni hadith books that the Prophet (pbuh) combined prayers even when there was no need to.
