  1. Salam: Brother Islamic Salvation: Can you please explain and share with us the hadith that relate to this ayat? (2:78) وَمِنْهُمْ أُمِّيُّونَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا أَمَانِيَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَظُنُّونَ this is from tafsir as Safi (can you please translate?) قال عليه السلام: قال رجل للصادق عليه السلام فإذا كان هؤلاء العوام من اليهود لا يعرفون الكتاب الا بما يسمعونه من علمائهم لا سبيل لهم إلى غيره فكيف ذمّهم بتقليدهم و القبول من علمائهم و هل عوام اليهود الا كعوامنا يقلّدون علمائهم فان لم يجز لأولئك القبول من علمائهم لم يجز لهؤلاء القبول من علمائهم فقال عليه السلام بين عوامنا و علمائنا و بين عوام اليهود و علمائهم فرق من جهة و تسوية من جهة أما من حيث استووا فان اللَّه قد ذمّ عوامنا بتقليدهم علماءهم كما قد ذمّ عوامهم و أمّا من حيث افترقوا فلا، قال بيّن لي ذلك يا بن رسول اللَّه قال إنّ عوام اليهود كانوا قد عرفوا علمائهم بالكذب الصريح و بأكل الحرام و الرّشا و بتغيير الأحكام عن واجبها بالشفاعات و العنايات و المصانعات «1» و عرفوهم بالتعصب الشديد الذي يفارقون به أديانهم و إنهم إذا تعصبوا أزالوا حقوق من تعصبوا عليه و اعطوا ما لا يستحقه من تعصبوا له من اموال غيرهم و ظلموهم من أجلهم و عرفوهم يقارفون المحرّمات و اضطروا بمعارف قلوبهم إلى أن من فعل ما يفعلونه فهو فاسق لا يجوز ان يصدق على اللَّه و لا على الوسائط بين الخلق و بين اللَّه فلذلك ذمّهم لما قلّدوا من قد عرفوا و من قد علموا أنّه لا يجوز قبول خبره و لا تصديقه في حكايته و لا العمل بما يؤديه إليهم عمّن لم يشاهدوه و وجب عليهم النظر بأنفسهم في أمر رسول اللَّه صلّى اللَّه عليه و آله إذ كانت دلائله أوضح من أن يخفى و أشهر من أن لا يظهر لهم و كذلك عوام أمّتنا إذا عرفوا من فقهائهم الفسق الظاهر و العصبيّة الشديدة و التّكالب «2» على حطام الدنيا و حرامها و إهلاك من يتعصبون عليه و إن كان لإصلاح أمره مستحقاً و بالترفق بالبر و الإحسان على من تعصبوا له و إن كان للاذلال و الإهانة مستحقاً فمن قلّد من عوامنا مثل هؤلاء الفقهاء فهم مثل اليهود الذين ذمّهم اللَّه بالتقليد لفسقه فقهائهم فأما من كان من الفقهاء صائناً لنفسه حافظاً لدينه مخالفاً على هواه مطيعاً لأمر مولاه فللعوام أن يقلّدوه، و ذلك لا يكون الا بعض فقهاء الشيعة لا جميعهم فان من يركب من القبائح و الفواحش مراكب فسقة فقهاء العامّة فلا تقبلوا منهم عنا شيئاً و لا كرامة لهم. Any further material from Nur thaqalyn, Qummi, majma al bayan etc??? Thanks,
  2. Assalam: Please explain this a bit more: When the Messenger (pbuh) ascended (mi`raj), he traversed beyond the veils, and was less than two bow lengths away from Allah's essence. Thanks
  3. To the OP: If the man was saying Yala Yala then he wasn't iranian....plus ur brother must have been in Syria if he is visiting Syeda Zainab ((sa)...most likely the man was Arab.

  5. I am very concerned about this...probably no US planes are gonna bomb ISIS to help Shias... "Residents reached by phone in the town, Amerli, 100 miles north of Baghdad, said that ISIS fighters had surrounded it, mined the roads and posted snipers so that no one could leave. They said that food, medicine and ammunition to keep the militants out were dwindling." Also, I hope it wasn't really SHias who did the massacre...i dont think anyone has claimed responsibility yet... http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28881417 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/23/world/middleeast/gunmen-massacre-more-than-50-sunni-worshipers-in-central-iraq.html BAGHDAD — Scores of Sunni worshipers were killed during a militant raid on a rural mosque in central Iraq on Friday, an attack that security officials said had followed the attempted assassination of a local Shiite leader. It was not immediately clear who carried out either attack or whether they were even linked, but the violence still stoked sectarian recriminations and threatened to complicate efforts by Iraq’s newly designated prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, to form a government to run the country. Iraq has been struggling with a new wave of violence and political turmoil since extremists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria seized territory in the country’s north and west, including its second-largest city, Mosul. The United States has called the formation of an inclusive government a key step toward dealing with ISIS and suggested that it could lead to greater American aid to the Iraqi government and its armed forces. In a statement, Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, condemned the attack on “innocent men, women and children.” A visual guide to the crisis in Iraq and Syria. OPEN Graphic “This senseless attack underscores the urgent need for Iraqi leaders from across the political spectrum to take the necessary steps that will help unify the country against all violent extremist groups,” she said. The Friday attacks affected a group of villages near Hamreen Lake in Diyala Province, 100 miles northeast of Baghdad, where Shiite Kurds live among a majority of Sunni Arabs. The area’s tribes have long had tense relations, with intermittent violence going back years. But as the area has become a front line for government forces fighting ISIS, the Shiite militias that support the Iraqi Army have empowered and armed the local Shiites, residents said. Security officials said that three roadside bombs exploded Friday, planted in an apparent effort to assassinate the head of the local Shiite tribe, Sheikh Abdel-Samad al-Zarkoushi. Sheikh Zarkoushi survived, but others in his group were killed. Soon after, two masked gunmen stormed into a mosque in the Sunni village of Beni Weis and fired on worshipers with automatic weapons before escaping on motorcycles, security officials said. Video broadcast on an Iraqi television station showed the apparent aftermath of the attack — women screaming and lifeless bodies scattered about the mosque’s red carpet. Security officials said at least 43 people were killed, although some reports said the death toll exceeded 60. Many Sunnis immediately blamed the attack on local Shiite gunmen. A Sunni member of Parliament from Diyala Province, Nahda al-Dayni, accused Shiite militias of exacting sectarian revenge for the bomb attacks. “If one Shiite is killed, from the security forces or the militias, they try to kill 10 Sunnis from the same area,” she said. Reached by phone, Sheikh Zarkoushi said he had been part of a security patrol when the first bombs detonated, killing four men from his tribe and two Iraqi soldiers. He heard later about the attack on the mosque, he said, but denied that his tribe had been involved. “We heard that gunmen entered the mosque with machine guns and killed people,” he said, adding that he did not know the assailants. In Baghdad, two Sunni lawmakers, Saleh al-Mutlaq, a departing deputy prime minister, and Salim al-Jubouri, the speaker of Parliament, said their respective blocs were withdrawing from negotiations over the new government until the killers were apprehended. The dismantling of Shiite militias is a key demand of Sunni leaders. While the groups are fighting alongside Iraqi forces against ISIS, human rights groups say they operate outside of the law and have kidnapped and killed Sunni civilians. Emphasizing the issue’s importance for Sunnis, Mr. Mutlaq equated Shiite militias with ISIS and said the United States should target them with airstrikes. “The enemies of Iraq are ISIS, the militias and oppression,” Mr. Mutlaq said. “If these elements are not finished, we cannot build a stable country.” As word of the mosque massacre spread, Iraq’s Shiite religious establishment issued a call for help for a Shiite town in central Iraq besieged by ISIS fighters for weeks. Residents reached by phone in the town, Amerli, 100 miles north of Baghdad, said that ISIS fighters had surrounded it, mined the roads and posted snipers so that no one could leave. They said that food, medicine and ammunition to keep the militants out were dwindling. Amerli’s plight has raised alarm here and abroad because it bears similarities to other areas where ISIS has committed mass killings. The town is home to members of Iraq’s Turkmen minority who are Shiite Muslims, and ISIS considers them infidels. Last week, ISIS fighters killed scores of men from the Yazidi minority further west after having besieged their town and demanded that they convert to Islam. Marzio Babille, Unicef’s Iraq representative, said that as many as 15,000 people remained in Amerli, including 5,000 children and a few hundred people wounded in militant attacks. “If the city is overrun, I am not very optimistic about their fate,” Mr. Babille said. Concern that ISIS would massacre Yazidis as they fled across the rugged Sinjar mountains was one reason President Obama ordered American airstrikes in Iraq earlier this month. Mr. Babille said he had been in contact with American officials about the situation in Amerli, although there has been no comment on whether the United States is considering airstrikes there. One Turkmen member of the Iraqi Parliament, Fawzi Akram Tarzi, called on the United States to help Amerli, accusing it of applying “double standards” by coming to the aid of some of Iraqi’s minorities and not others. “Why did they hit ISIS in Sinjar but not in Amerli?” Mr. Tarzi said. “We want the international community to deal with all Iraqi citizens in the same way.” Iraq’s Shiite religious authorities also raised alarm about the situation in Amerli. “We call on the concerned parties to work seriously to break the siege on this city and save its people from the danger of the terrorists whose crimes the whole world has seen,” said a representative of Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq’s most influential Shiite cleric, during a televised sermon.

  6. Not saying i believe it but an interesting thought...what do u guys think? http://news.antiwar.com/2014/08/13/yazidis-werent-stranded-pentagon-looks-for-other-missions/ http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/14/world/middleeast/iraq-yazidi-refugees.html?_r=0 though there are also a lo of articles saying they were in a bad situation as well. Shias get slaughtered...sectarian problems no bid deal yezidi's stranded? the world wakes up! just wanted to point that out as well.
  7. Assalam: Congrats HH for becoing a mod! well done sir. Didnt see that until today.
  8. Assalam: So if the moon is sighted in the Polynesian Islands...the shared night (Ayatullah Khoei) followers would do Eid on Monday?
  9. I heard this and was curious...wasn't nahj compiled by sayyad Radhi...a shia?
  10. the penalty was wrongly awarded and the disallowed croatian goal was not goalie interference... This match should have ended 2-1 for Croatia. Also the Croatian Goalie was paid...What terrible Goal keeping. Homefield advantage for Brazil. Lucky win.
  11. http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/obesity-research-confirms-long-term-weight-loss-almost-impossible-1.2663585 There's a disturbing truth that is emerging from the science of obesity. After years of study, it's becoming apparent that it's nearly impossible to permanently lose weight. As incredible as it sounds, that's what the evidence is showing. For psychologist Traci Mann, who has spent 20 years running an eating lab at the University of Minnesota, the evidence is clear. "It couldn't be easier to see," she says. "Long-term weight loss happens to only the smallest minority of people." We all think we know someone in that rare group. They become the legends — the friend of a friend, the brother-in-law, the neighbour — the ones who really did it. But if we check back after five or 10 years, there's a good chance they will have put the weight back on. Only about five per cent of people who try to lose weight ultimately succeed, according to the research. Those people are the outliers, but we cling to their stories as proof that losing weight is possible. "Those kinds of stories really keep the myth alive," says University of Alberta professor Tim Caulfield, who researches and writes about health misconceptions. "You have this confirmation bias going on where people point to these very specific examples as if it's proof. But in fact those are really exceptions." Our biology taunts us, by making short-term weight loss fairly easy. But the weight creeps back, usually after about a year, and it keeps coming back until the original weight is regained or worse. This has been tested in randomized controlled trials where people have been separated into groups and given intense exercise and nutrition counselling. Even in those highly controlled experimental settings, the results show only minor sustained weight loss. When Traci Mann analyzed all of the randomized control trials on long-term weight loss, she discovered that after two years the average amount lost was only one kilogram, or about two pounds, from the original weight. Tiptoeing around the truth So if most scientists know that we can't eat ourselves thin, that the lost weight will ultimately bounce back, why don't they say so? Tim Caulfield says his fellow obesity academics tend to tiptoe around the truth. "You go to these meetings and you talk to researchers, you get a sense there is almost a political correctness around it, that we don't want this message to get out there," he said. "You'll be in a room with very knowledgeable individuals, and everyone in the room will know what the data says and still the message doesn't seem to get out." In part, that's because it's such a harsh message. "You have to be careful about the stigmatizing nature of that kind of image," Caulfield says. "That's one of the reasons why this myth of weight loss lives on." Health experts are also afraid people will abandon all efforts to exercise and eat a nutritious diet — behaviour that is important for health and longevity — even if it doesn't result in much weight loss. Traci Mann says the emphasis should be on measuring health, not weight. "You should still eat right, you should still exercise, doing healthy stuff is still healthy," she said. "It just doesn't make you thin." We are biological machines But eating right to improve health alone isn't a strong motivator. The research shows that most people are willing to exercise and limit caloric intake if it means they will look better. But if they find out their weight probably won't change much, they tend to lose motivation. That raises another troubling question. If diets don't result in weight loss, what does? At this point the grim answer seems to be that there is no known cure for obesity, except perhaps surgically shrinking the stomach. Research suggests bariatric surgery can induce weight loss in the extremely obese, improving health and quality of life at the same time. But most people will still be obese after the surgery. Plus, there are risky side effects, and many will end up gaining some of that weight back. If you listen closely you will notice that obesity specialists are quietly adjusting the message through a subtle change in language. These days they're talking about weight maintenance or "weight management" rather than "weight loss." Michelle Obama has been on an eat better campaign ever since her husband was elected to the White House. An estimated 2.1 billion people on the planet are now considered overweight or obese. (Reuters) It's a shift in emphasis that reflects the emerging reality. Just last week the headlines announced the world is fatter than it has ever been, with 2.1 billion people now overweight or obese, based on an analysis published in the online issue of the British medical journal The Lancet. Researchers are divided about why weight gain seems to be irreversible, probably a combination of biological and social forces. "The fundamental reason," Caulfield says, "is that we are very efficient biological machines. We evolved not to lose weight. We evolved to keep on as much weight as we possibly can." Lost in all of the noise about dieting and obesity is the difficult concept of prevention, of not putting weight on in the first place. The Lancet study warned that more than one in five kids in developed countries are now overweight or obese. Statistics Canada says close to a third of Canadian kids under 17 are overweight or obese. And in a world flooded with food, with enormous economic interest in keeping people eating that food, what is required to turn this ship around is daunting. "An appropriate rebalancing of the primal needs of humans with food availability is essential," University of Oxford epidemiologist Klim McPherson wrote in a Lancet commentary following last week's study. But to do that, he suggested, "would entail curtailing many aspects of production and marketing for food industries." Perhaps, though, the emerging scientific reality should also be made clear, so we can navigate this obesogenic world armed with the stark truth — that we are held hostage to our biology, which is adapted to gain weight, an old evolutionary advantage that has become a dangerous metabolic liability.
  12. - nigeria is messed up - other countries as well http://www.ctvnews.ca/world/piles-and-piles-of-bodies-after-south-sudan-slaughter-1.1786808 AIROBI, Kenya -- Gunmen in South Sudan who targeted civilians including children and the elderly left "piles and piles" of bodies, many of them in a mosque and a hospital, the United Nations' top humanitarian official in the country said Tuesday. Toby Lanzer told The Associated Press in a phone interview Tuesday that the ethnically targeted killings in a provincial capital are "quite possibly a game-changer" for a conflict that has been raging since mid-December and that has exposed longstanding ethnic hostilities. There was also a disturbing echo of Rwanda, which is marking the 20th anniversary this month of its genocide that killed an estimated 1 million people. The Rwandan genocide saw kill orders broadcast by radio and it happened in South Sudan, Lanzer said. Related StoriesUN condemns ethnic killings in South Sudan town"It's the first time we're aware of that a local radio station was broadcasting hate messages encouraging people to engage in atrocities," said Lanzer, who was in Bentiu on Sunday and Monday. "And that really accelerates South Sudan's descent into an even more difficult situation from which it needs to extract itself." UN human rights investigators said late Monday that hundreds of civilians were killed last week because of their ethnicity after rebel forces seized Bentiu, the capital of oil-producing Unity state. Those rebel forces are Nuer, the same ethnic group that former Vice-President Riek Machar, who is now a rebel leader, comes from. Lanzer said thousands of civilians from several ethnic groups are streaming to the UN peacekeeping base in Bentiu because many believe more violence is coming. The base now holds 25,000 people but has only one litre of water per person per day and only one latrine per 350 people. "The risk of a public health crisis inside our base is enormous," he said. Raphael Gorgeu, the head of Doctors Without Borders in South Sudan, said people will die inside the UN base in coming days because of the water and sanitation situation. As rebel forces entered Bentiu last week, residents were led to believe that by entering the mosque they would be safe, Lanzer said, citing accounts from survivors. But once inside they were robbed of money and mobile phones and a short while later gunmen began killing, both inside the mosque and inside the city hospital. If you were not Nuer nothing could save you. The gunmen killed wantonly, including children and the elderly, Lanzer said. Gorgeu said his team members in Bentiu -- including 12 international staff -- have treated more than 200 people wounded in the violence, including many gunshot victims. British Ambassador Ian Hughes on Tuesday said the April 15-16 killings are a clear violation of international law. He said those behind the atrocities and those inciting the killings will be held to account. UN officials began helping to clear the bodies from the streets and city buildings. Lanzer arrived in Bentiu on the third day of that operation but still counted 150 bodies. He said the UN is documenting the killings and will soon have "a pretty good grasp" on the precise number killed. The violence is only one part of a dual crisis South Sudan faces. Because of the fighting, more than 1 million people have fled their homes, and very few residents are tending to their crops. Lanzer said there is a severe risk of famine in coming months because April and May is when residents should be planting and cultivating. The UN hasn't spelled out clearly who exactly the victims were last week, but because ethnic Nuers carried out the killings it is likely that ethnic Dinkas were among the dead. The UN also said former residents of the Darfur region of Sudan were among those killed targeted. Nuer residents who refused to take part in the attacks were also killed. The UN has been warning of mounting evidence of ethnically-targeted killings in the world's newest nation as both government troops and rebel forces lose and gain territories in back-and-forth clashes. Despite a ceasefire signed earlier this year, both sides continue to trade allegations over human rights violations. Though thousands of people are cramming into the UN base in search of shelter, they may not even be safe there. Last week an angry mob attacked a UN base in Bor and killed about 60 people. In that case, ethnic Nuers sheltering inside bore the brunt of the attack. Gorgeu said such a potential attack is a major concern for the safety of his staff but that he cannot abandon the civilians in need. "All this violence, if you look at Bor, if you look at Bentiu, it's a major, major concern. We can see the level of violence is having an unacceptably high cost on the civilian population and this must be addressed," Gorgeu said.
