  1. Salamalikum all,it is sad but a true fact that even though we have 12 imams,most of us know only about 4 of them,the order we know them in is 1,3,6,12...,we all know about imam Ali,then we jump to imam Hussain as he was martyred in kerbala,then we move to the sixth imam as he was the teacher of the leader of 2 sunni schools,then we move to the 12th as he will take us all to paradise....to love means to know,let us ask ourselves how much do we know about imam Hasan,all we know is that he did not fight muavia and for this reason some intellects in our own community say that he was a thanda(cold)
  2. salamalikum to all, hope by the grace of Allah everyone is doing fine, Allah swt in his holy book says in ch 66.6 o u who believe,protect ur self and ur family from the fire of hell...also the prophet of islam says that seeking knowledge is obligatory upon all and it is the highest form of worship,the master of the believers ali (as) says that "consultation is the best helper and there is no support like it",our 4th imam says that the right of the one who seeks ur advice is that u exert all efforts in helping him and tell him what u would do in his place and if u cannot help him then guide him
  3. salamalikum SV stands for sayed vakfanni....its a title which the british gave his ancestors when they were ruling over india.... his translation of the holy quran which includes commentary from aga pooya yazdi is one of the finest... more details about his life are in the beginning of the book... in a short introduction he has beautifully explained the articles of shia faith,also he has thrown some light on islamic history.... the amount of research which he has put into his work is proved by his own admission that he took 10 years to complete it.... may Allah bless him and aga pooya yazdi...
  4. try this it worked for me before goin 2 bed recite 2 units of prayer not with a wajib niyaat.... now what u do is u recite this prayer in english so every word frm allaho akbar to d final salam recite it in english....believe me bro most of d times things dont work for us cause we dont know what it means n what its meant to do to us.... also fake it-our human mind can be easily fooled so act as if its workin for u,like ur soul is feelin elevated n in some time u will get used to it... take care n best of luck
  5. salamalkum,\ hope u guys are doin fine,firstly this is a good concept and brother nader i dont know if u r a scholar or not but ur knowledge seems very good i have a couple of questions 1.acc to hadith science even if a hadith is weak there is no problem narrating it,daeef does not mean rejected. 2.also scholars are only strict regarding the chain of those hadith trough which basic tenants of religion are derived,like the history of kerbala all we know about it is from narrators who were enemies of the imams, like when mukhtar used to catch the enimies he used to first ask them about what they
  6. peace b on u, if u see the context of the hadith it can be linked to other hadith where imam ali says "Do not see who is speaking but see what he is speaking.... so as long as what the other person says is within the umbrella of islam we should accept it....
  7. salamalikum mustafa, hope u doin fine.... our master imam ali as says that "an ignorant either goes too fast or too slow"..... i think ur intellect is quiet strong to understand the message that ur spiritual father(imam ali) is giving u....... so choose the middle path do not stress ur self too much....may Allah swt who is the master of both the worlds guide us all..... take care and peace out
  8. shaeed mutahaari was one of the finest scholars that we had and about this there is no doubt....one of his works which is related to this topic is "islam and religious pluralism",you can read it on al-islam.org which i must say is a very very helpful site.... shaeed mutahaari beautifully disects the topic and presents the true islamic view with the help of quran and hadith.... may Allah bless him and expand our chest to understand his views............ take care
  9. salamalikum bro, hope u doin fine,i think you sould not debate the other bro who says imam ali is god, the only reason being that in the school of ahlubayt we dont debate but we discuss,once someone came to the prophet with a query the prophet told him "ask me like an asker not as a debater", the ideas is that the one who is asking is seeking the straight path but the one who is debating just wants to get his point of view across...imam ali once told his companions that he should not use the quran as proof while discussing with others as the verses can be used to show different meaning but rat
  10. <p>the leader of the faithful imam ali says that either an ignorant goes too fast or too slow-so lets not become extremist on either views....he also says that either we are brothers in faith or equal in humanity-so stop insulting each other n makin this personal....the holy prophet says that many a times people ask questions not cause they want to know but its either cause they want a new answer or they know it will create an issue- so the ones who need a clear answer should appraoch the ones who know...</p> <p>we say it is shirk to attach partners to Allah but a bigger sin
  11. hey haider salamalikum, i think u should check al-islam.org and there thay have the shia encyclopedia which has great info and the language used is also very simple n easy to relate to. u know u shud than Allah swt that he put u such a position that it makes u think n reflect on the path ur following......surely the ones who know are better than the ones who dont know.. take care
  12. Peace b on all of u Ok more than a discussion i need sincere advice,i will try to keep it short and simple and i hope god willingly you guys should understand me. So I am from India,Mumbai,30 yrs old married with 2 kids,I dont know if u guys know but here we do not have any english speaking scholar,most of the scholars speak urdu,now what this does is -the youth stay away from the religion as the dont relate or understand what the scholar is sayin. -the affluent think that this religion is old school and there is nothing for them in it. -other schools dont even know that shia exist,here musl
  13. in d name of Allah the most high salamalikum, go ahead don't waste time and order ur book,think from our imams point of view what would they want?? would they want that their name should b considered so sacred that if a delivery driver touches it or drops it,it would account to a sin or would they want their knowledge,their message to spread?? u do not have to answer this its quiet obvious.... happy reading
  14. SOME SAYINGS ON KNOWLEDGE BY PROPHET MOHAMMED N HIS HOLY PROGENY *TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE IS TO WORSHIP *IT IS OBLIGATORY ON EVERY MUSLIM TO SEEK KNOWLEDGE,GOD LIKES THE ONE WHO SEEKS KNOWLEDGE *THE VIRTUE OF KNOWLEDGE IS MORE BELOVED IN THE EYES OF GOD THAN THE VIRTUE OF WORSHIP *SEEK KNOWLEDGE FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE *SEEK KNOWLEDGE BE IT IN CHINA *THE ONE WHO SEEKS KNOWLEDGE IS LIKE THE ONE WHO PRAYS ALL NIGHT AND FAST ALL DAY *ASSOCIATION WITH THE KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSON IS WORSHIP OF GOD..EVEN LOOKING AT THIER FACE IS WORSHIP *THE GOOD OF THIS WORLD AND THE HEREAFTER LIES WITH KNOWLEDGE *KNOW
  15. salamalaikum, in d name of Allah the best.... dear friend, i think this post of yours does not make any sense,if you think its funny,then its not... if your a follower of the school of ahlulbait,then surely your intellect will not let you write such things... ok it must b a part of other schools history but what have we got to do with it,rather than going trough their books n finding faults n funny incidents ,you should rather become a student of your own school...... also you do not need to expose any one,everyone knows the truth,its just that they cant face it,picture this does not a smoker
