    Fink got a reaction from Zellali in Four Witnesses For Rape   
    so men can rape all they want and they cant get charged according to Islamic law? Out of 100 cases of rape , how many do you honestly think will have 4 witnesses seeing the actual act?

    Ok so what? This is a Shia forum. Most of us believe in Ali's status, his noble role in establishing Islam,  and he was the Prophet's right hand man. But im not going to worship him, I'm not going to call out his name for help.
    Im not going to lie about him or give him divine attributes.

    Salam,
    I don’t believe it is haram to visit him or anyone dead with the right intention of love. I just don't want to infringe on a major tenant of our belief system. So what is appropriate?  Well it's easy, treat any grave visits as if that was your mother or father. You pray for them and express your grief in the appropriate manner. 
    The other issue is do we really know who is buried in these shrines?  We really can't say conclusively and saying otherwise is wishful thinking. 
    Also perhaps unrelated, but I find the Shia's infatuation with grief over the death of someone so unrealistic as if death is selective or that it only happens every other millennium. 
    We have to be careful in associating purity of faith with our own additions.

    What is the purpose of throwing letters in lakes and into graves?   
    This is very problematic and sad that some Shias would be jump roping with shirk. 
    I say this for your own good, stay away from these primitive rituals which have no role in Islam.

    Fink got a reaction from Mortadakerim in Masjid Al-Aqsa   
    I'm more inclined to believe it was a mosque in the vicinity of Mecca or Medina. One thing is obvious however, it's definitely not in Jerusalem as there was no such Masjid In Jerusalem at that time. 
    I'm not saying it wasn't a heavenly Masjid, just that the issue of Isra has been greatly exaggerated and thus it's difficult to assess anything more than what the Qur'an says.
     
    This could have been merely a dream. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows best.

    So as it relates to the entrance of the unknown Masjid in surah Israh, no it wouldn't be Masjid Alharam for a few reasons. If that is what you're asking?
    The only viable candidate in my opinion is some sort of Jewish temple that will be controlled by the Jewish people. 
    The other issue which I think confuses some people is the Masjid Al-Aqsa mentioned in the first part of Surah Israh does not necessarily have anything to do with the Jewish Masjid that is referred to a few verses later. There's nothing to suggest otherwise from the Surah aside from the two topics being in the same Surah.

    I'm not really sure. I don’t think we know conclusively, I did open a topic similar to this about Solomon's temple and if the Qur'an prophesies it.

    Fink got a reaction from Mortadakerim in How can we be Followers of Qur'an   
    That's a good question and most will try to beat around the question. The Sunni argument about all qirat are from God is just nonsense, most of these changes have come about through easily understood processes. There was only one revelation to Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم). ONE. 
    I have written a topic about this before that may be very helpful.
    When the Qur'an was collected they didnt have printing presses and microsoft word. The Qur'an was conanized and sent all across the Arab world. Aside from LITERALLY COPY ERRORS , the arabs in a different region read the script and they had to decide on how to pronounce the dotless words and where to put the dots. 
    That contributed to the differences in the text. 
    Some versions lacked WORDS. Some readings changed the MEANING.
    My argument in it's basic form is this:
    The linguistics, content, morality of the Qur'an remain superior to any relevant text despite these inconsistencies. For whatever reason,  Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) maintains an element of mystery and rarely are absolutes given to us in this life. There is a natural process through which the Qur'an was revealed and that is the human tongue and hand, both are prone to error. But sufficiently accurate for guidance.
