  1. Firstly, Qur'an: 33:33 And stay in your houses. Bedizen not yourselves with the bedizenment of the Time of Ignorance. Be regular in prayer, and pay the poor-due, and obey Allah and His messenger. Allah's wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O Folk of the Household, and cleanse you with a thorough cleansing Secondly, Sahih Muslim: Book 031, Number 5955: 'A'isha reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) went out one norning wearing a striped cloak of the black camel's hair that there came Hasan b. 'Ali. He wrapped hitn under it, then came Husain and he wrapped him under it along with the other one (Hasan). Then came Fatima and he took her under it, then came 'Ali and he also took him under it and then said: Allah only desires to take away any uncleanliness from you, O people of the household, and purify you (thorough purifying)
  2. Also here is another piece for you, from Sahih muslim, might not mean much to you but its of extreme importance for the ones in Sunni faith. Book 020, Number 4483: It has been narrated on the authority of Amir b. Sa'd b. Abu Waqqas who said: I wrote (a letter) to Jabir b. Samura and sent it to him through my servant Nafi', asking him to inform me of something he had heard from the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him). He wrote to me (in reply): I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say on Friday evening, the day on which al-Aslami was stoned to death (for committing adultery): The Islamic religion will continue until the Hour has been established, or you have been ruled over by twelve Caliphs, all of them being from the Quraish. also heard him say: A small force of the Muslims will capture the white palace, the police of the Persian Emperor or his descendants. I also heard him say: Before the Day of Judgment there will appear (a number of) impostors. You are to guard against them. I also heard him say: When God grants wealth to any one of you, he should first spend it on himself and his family (and then give it in charity to the poor). I heard him (also) say: I will be your forerunner at the Cistern (expecting your arrival).
  3. you believe things right away to a point that i could call you gullible (no offense intended). you see how videos are edited to suit their objectives. plus al-Tijani answered false accusations by laughing AT them, rather than answering a 2+2 = 4 kinda game. Also if you noticed the uploader has disabled comments on the video. Hmm..... I wonder why.
  4. The ones who say that are just as corrupt as Umar who refused to give the prophet (pbuh) pen and paper when he asked for them so he could write down something through which we would never go astray, i.e. his successor. As mentioned above, all the hard work of prophet would go to waste if he didn't appoint someone after him, especially at a time when Islam was at a very young age and could be destroyed very easily. And if we don't need Imams, then why your sunni brother follows one of Imam Hanbal, Imam hanafi, Imam Shaf'i or Imam malik? Why follow some historians Hadeeths and value it over the Quran? this can go on forever. No one had problem with Imamate. It was Ali (A.S) that most had problem with, i call it Envy/Jealousy. I apologize for the bluntness.
  5. Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 70, Number 573: Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: When Allah's Apostle was on his death-bed and in the house there were some people among whom was 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, the Prophet said, "Come, let me write for you a statement after which you will not go astray." 'Umar said, "The Prophet is seriously ill and you have the Qur'an; so the Book of Allah is enough for us." The people present in the house differed and quarrelled. Some said "Go near so that the Prophet may write for you a statement after which you will not go astray," while the others said as Umar said. When they caused a hue and cry before the Prophet, Allah's Apostle said, "Go away!" Narrated 'Ubaidullah: Ibn 'Abbas used to say, "It was very unfortunate that Allah's Apostle was prevented from writing that statement for them because of their disagreement and noise."
  6. Pangea the supercontinent existed 250 million years ago, man didn't exist back then.
  7. This problem only masculinity/feminity only arises in the poor and economical language English. I speak Dari (of afghanistan) and there's no gender association to Allah. A lot of points are misunderstood and sometimes totally deviated from the true meaning when said or translated in english. But the truth is Allah (GOD) is not contained within the boundaries of space, time and matter.
  8. Thank you brother Nader, so the Prophet couldn't read or write during the time Qur'an-e-Kareem was revealed but he learnt later on. That also brings the point that when Angel Gabriel brought down the revelations to the prophet(PBUH) he would dictate them to his companions around him so they could write them down. so the companions were educated. As per the previous link, there were about 16-17 literate people among the quraysh. Meaning most of those literates were the companions of the prophet. Does that mean, the prophet(PBUH) deliberately chose the educated ones to serve the purpose? I'm having so many questions now out-flowing from my mind.
  9. Forgive me for my limited knowledge, but as for my reasoning for the above, we can open a new thread. To point a few, 1. salat of 5 times a day promotes health and better circulation of blood (as opposed to the lifestyle of the lazy arabs of that time) 2. Hajj to promote unity among the Ummah 3. Wudhu to promote cleanliness 4. Difference in rak'at - possibly so we pay attention to our salat and not make it a repetitive consistent chore ...and so on, However these can be argued no doubt. thanks My question still remains unanswered. Thank you again for your consideration on this thread.
  10. Because the Qur'an says that prophet (pbuh) was mentioned in the previous books, thats why i posted the verse in the Torah as a side note. For your second point, I agree with what you're saying. However, we always justify (or at least try to) his actions and words through logical explanations and not mere "blind faith". I'm not asking IF he asked, I asked what could be an explanation for such. Everything about the prophet has been logically sound and I'm sure this one is too, I just can't comprehend as yet.
  11. I posted this question long time ago but never got a good answer for this. Quran: 7:157 "Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear. Then those who believe in him, and honour him, and help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him: they are the successful". Bible: Isaiah 29:12 "Then the book is delivered to one who is illiterate, saying, "Read this, I pray thee." And he says, "I am not literate." From above it is clear that the prophet couldn't read or write which brings me to the main question: Why did the prophet (pbuh) ask for pen and paper on his day of demise when he couldn't write anything anyways? And if he wanted someone to write for him, then that wouldn't be accepted by the deniers. So why did he ask for those items? please enlighten me on this with proper reference.
  12. Trust me I might even consider joining you guys on this, but at an appropriate time and place(forum), I just want the main question to be answered. the theme for this thread. Just thirsty for knowledge, thats all.
  13. I have a friend here in toronto at york university who was a wahaab, now he called himself a muslim and denounced wahabism. Also you should read this book called "Then I was guided" (available in hardcopy and also in islamiclib app) and give him a copy too. Might burn his throat while swallowing his own saliva but will help you an inch.
  14. I am with you on this. Being shi'a doesn't mean we can use this website as a tool to release our frustrations on what our beloved Imams went through. But rather using the Quranic approach in solving discussions by bringing solid proof against an argument. I am probably the least educated in Islam and that's why I am here to learn more. Get knowledge of our history, not how well we can win "YO MAMA" jokes.
  15. I came to this thread to get that answer too, but don't you think what you said was extreme? I know he has done horrible things, but at the end, only he is responsible for his deeds and actions. I wouldn't use either of those titles.
  16. thank you brother, I am a shi'a, I was born a shi'a, from Afghanistan. but not having the comfort of a settled life due to political reasons, never allowed me to learn my religion as a child. Now im trying to learn as much as I can, and I thank people like you who are helping me attain it.
  17. Thank you so much for taking the time to help me out on this issue. but now it brings about other points that were taught to me and almost the entire muslim world. When the revelations would come to the prophet (pbuh) through archangel Gabriel, he(PBUH) didn't write them down on a paper himself, but his companions would inscribe them on whatever they could find. and he (pbuh) would make them recite those verses from time to time, to confirm its sanctity and its genuineness. what was the need for that if he could read and write? Was that a test for ummah? of did those verses imply that he received divine teachings not earthly languages? thank you in advance.
  18. salaam. This is my first day of joining this esteemed site and my very first forum, so please bear with me. my question is, i have been told since I was a kid about the incident when Umar disrespected Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on his deathbed when he asked for a pen and paper. Just today it occurred to me that we were told that our prophet (pbuh) wasn't learned, he couldn't read or write. Then what was the purpose of asking for pen and paper if he couldn't write anything. Im not pointing fingers at any sect of Islam, I just wanted to clarify this for myself. any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
