  1. They go to a special place for punishment where they have to listen to Zain Bhikha for eternity. On the bright side they all get a cookie.
  2. The Christians believed it was the manifestation of Mary (as). The Catholic Church deemed it a valid revelation, still is till this day.
  3. They are not building a better one, they are getting rid of it to expand the Masjid itself.
  4. I really don't even know what to say, they are seriously crossing the line. You can read the article here.
  5. Ok, so? I don't dig how Shia make it a point to show how Umar was frightened when he first converted or how he ran from the battle field. Converting to Islam can be a dangerous experience even here in a country where religious freedom is protected by law, so I can't imagine the pressure of converting in a society where most of the local population is calling for Muslim blood as was happening at that time. Also, how many people here would be able to stand in battle, especially considering the odds they faced. Most of us would run from a verbal confrontation, let alone a wall of well trained calvary or a sea of arrows. My point is we make attacks upon personalities as if we were children making fun of each other on the playground, pointing and laughing at how scared the other was while we pretend we are any braver. Umar committed some of the most vile and despicable acts to the Ahlul Bayt, and his actions during the Nabi's life time are no better. So if you really find a need to even make him relevant at all, address those acts, the things that actually mattered.
  6. I really don't see how this is being used as a way to point out the negative qualities of Umar ibn Al Khattab. All that is happening here is someone whom Umar was associated with prior to his conversion, who clearly still has feelings of loyalty to Umar and their friendship, and thus protects him while everyone else was ready to rip him to shreds. This is something converts experience all of the time with family members and friends that have their own strong feelings about Islam and Muslims, but for the sake of their relationship are willing to stand by and even defend the other. There are plenty of proofs, from our own books as well as Sunni's, that point out Umar's rap sheet. So using this to do it, is a bit silly.
  7. I don't speak farsi, so I can't really tell if that is what he actually said, and I don't feel comfortable accusing him of that even if there is subtitles. However if he did say it, I get where he is coming from, and it's just a really poor choice of words. Al-Qur'an is not the only evidence for Maryam's (as) chastity and honor, there is the Gospel itself that serves as evidence. Also, you would be surprised how many Jews don't have an issue making sense of the 'virgin birth' story, they take more of an issue with the 'literal' claim that Isa is the Messiah. Care to back that up? That is an opinion, there are hadith about it, it's a complicated subject, and it's controversial. I would be surprised if a Marja today is so blunt about it as you have implied.
  8. Asalaamu alaikum. Are you a convert?

  9. I have read that site, it is just conjecture and don't really wish to waste my time. If you don't want to do it, then cool.
  10. Sayyid Al Khoi. Shaykh Abdul Kareem Al Ha'ery Sayyid Sadiq Al Shirazi. Sayyid Muhammad Al Shirazi. Sayyid Ali Sistani. Sayyid Muhammad Sadiq Al Rohani. Shaykh Vahid Al Khorasani. Sayyid Muhsin Al Hakim. Shaykh Mirza Al Tabrizi. I am sure there are plenty more I've forgotten. All of these men agreed that at the very least there is no harm nor prohibition on tatbir and zanjeer, some of them were more in 'support' of the act then the others.
  11. I am looking forward to another Muharram of Muslims telling other Muslims how much their right and everyone else is wrong.
  12. A lot of people say many things about many folks, if we believed it every time it happened where would we be? Yassir Habib is many things, including a man educated in the sciences of our religion. He put in his years of studies with scholars who's authority is recognized on all fronts, so to imply he is not an 'actual scholar' is a cheap shot. In addition to those years of study he also put in time as a prisoner for merely teaching about our religion in Kuwait, during those years he had faced torture and solitude confinement, a fact about him often overlooked. Does Yassir say things that are sometimes inappropriate, sure. It would be nice if he worded things better, or treated other scholars with more brotherly love. However I have yet to hear him say a single thing that cannot be found within our literature, the issue of it being absolutely authentic is irrelevant, the point is it is there. Perhaps Shia should spend more time studying their religion as opposed to sweeping it under the rug.
