  1. You should be careful about sayig this, because there is a chance it might be true.
  2. See my post , where I quote a Sunni response to this article that seems pretty convincing.
  3. I don't understand how the fact that the Holy Prophet (pbuh), Imam Ali (as) and Bibi Fatima (as) were all overjoyed on the births of Imam Hasan (as) and Imam Husayn (as), which is a completely normal reaction on the birth of ones child or grandchild, proves anything. What are needed are narrations that those birthdays were commemorated on a yearly basis by the Masumeen (as).
  4. I have no issue with defending the position that Aisha was 9 or 10, although of course it would be more comfortable if it could be proved she was older. The main issue is to prove beyond doubt that she had reached puberty, and that in Islam a woman must have reached puberty before consumating a marriage.
  5. There was a Sunni response to the above article : http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?2925-Our-Mother-Aisha-s-Age-at-the-Time-of-Her-Marriage-to-the-Prophet-saw I'm posting it as it was in the link, so don't kill me for the (ra) after the names of certain people. Answered By Shaykh Gibril Haddad [Questions in Dark Green] */To begin with, I think it is the responsibility of all those who believe that marrying a girl as young as nine years old was an accepted norm of the Arab culture, to provide at least a few examples to substantiate their point of view. I have not yet been able to f
  6. I agree with you of course that a prepubescent girl has no business getting married, but I think it's important for us to have some textual evidence on this point. The enemies of Islam are getting louder every day, and much more sophisticated. Look at wikiislam for example, they are quoting many hadiths(sunni of course), the strength of the narrations, verses from the Quran, examining the Arabic. When dealing with people like this, or those that quote them, I think it is essential that we be able to prove things from our sources. They don't need to be convinced that it's wrong to consumate a m
  7. Yes, I would have assumed that it refers to women who do not menstruate due to some medical condition. However, it would be nice to have a clear proof that sexual intercourse with a prepubescent girl is forbidden, in order to rule out those girls from the above verse. It would also be interesting to see a tafsir of the verse from early Shia scholars, since some early Sunni scholars have apparently included prepubscent girls as part of those who are lacking in menstruation in the verse. Jazakallah for telling me about amennorhea, I was unaware of it before.
  8. I agree 100%. For once Pakistanis won't be able to blame this on the Indians, the Americans, or the Zionists, like they do with most of their other problems.
  9. I wish I could say I was shocked, but sadly this is the kind of thing I've come to expect from the 'land of the pure'. The footage is gruesome though, and I don't know how anyone can call themselves a Muslim and stand by watching that. Anyone with a soul wouldn't even have allowed that to be done to an animal.
  10. This is what I thought, but I wanted to check just in case. Jazakallah.
  11. I've seen some people try to argue that based on Sunni hadiths, Aisha hadn't yet reached puberty at the time of consumation (audhubillah). They essentially base this on the fact that she was still playing with dolls at the time, and that other narrations indicate that only prepubescent children were allowed to do this. They then use 65:4 from the Quran to try and show it is permissible to have intercourse with a girl who has not yet reached puberty. So this got me thinking about a couple of things. Firstly, what is the proof that a girl must have reached puberty before she can consumate the ma
  12. Anyone wishing to learn Arabic should definitely take a look at the site http://www.kalamullah.com/learning-arabic.html , first brought to my attention by a post of brother macisaac, which has an incredible amount of free learning material.
  13. Can someone tell me whether or not it is wajib to say "Assalamu ‘alayka ayyuhan Nabiyyu wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh" in the taslim? I always just assumed it was, but then I saw Sayed Khomeini praying in the following video, and he seems to skip that sentence, and doesn't say "Assalamu ‘alayna wa ‘ala ‘ibadil lahis salihin" either. I don't have any plans to stop saying myself of course, but I would like to know just for information.
  14. Are there Arab names that aren't the same Muslim names everyone else has?
  15. Considering the mothers of Imam Musa al Kadhim (as) and Imam Ali ar Ridha (as) were reportedly from Africa, that would make sense. The mother of Imam Muhammad al Jawad (as) might also have been African as well, I'm not sure. I have read that Imam Musa al Kadhim (as) was very dark skinned, so it would be normal if the Imams after him were the roughly the same.
  16. Who's talking about hatred? The post was clearly out of concern, not hatred.
  17. Some approximations are better than others.
  18. I agree with you completely. However, there is a difference in mindset between a lot of born Muslims and reverts. The revert knows he is new to the religion, and is will do his best to learn all aspects of the religion. A born Muslim often has a certain arrogance about him, which is you can see with how some of them deal with reverts. They think they already know the religion, that whatever their family do must be part of Islam, and that if everyone they know pronounces the Quran a certain way, then it must be right. The problem is compounted with Indians and Pakistanis because Urdu contains a
  19. The problem is even worse. Many of them think they are doing it the right way, and the Arabs are doing it wrong. With regard to the difference between Ó and , Ë the problem is there is no 'th' sound in most(all?) Indian languages, do they have great difficulty when speaking other languages that have this sound. This why the other variants of 'th' sound found in Arabic are replaced with a 'z' sound as well. However, rather than just admit that their native language isn't well suited to pronouncing Arabic, many try and claim that they are in fact doing the 'original' way.
  20. Didn't take long for 'ahlul bayt lover' to be banned like his 'cousin'. I wonder how long it will be until the next relative arrives.
  21. We can't have more than 4 permanent wives, but there is no limit on the number of temporary wives. http://www.*******.org/hadiths/marriage/muta/permissibility-of-doing-muta-with-more-than-four-women
  22. That abreviation is of course worse, but people shouldn't use the more common 'wtf' either. Swearing is something all Muslims should stay away from, even in abbreviated forms over the internet. From a post by sister SpIzo in the thread :
  23. So? What is the problem? http://www.*******.org/hadiths/marriage/muta/permissibility-of-doing-muta-with-more-than-four-women If it wasn't for people being infected with their unislamic cultures, there would be no problem here either. Why should someone be ashamed for doing something halal? Not all 'decent Muslims girls' are virgins, so they won't need their father's permission. As for the so-called Shia girls who are fine with haram dating, but frown on halal muta, I don't think I need to make any comment. It's up to the person to use his judgement in who he does muta with, and of course
